Thoughts from the Dark Side:
New Orleans Saints
So this is it? This is how we discover what kind of team the Raiders are?
After all that was said in the past, after all of the grinding, promises about change, and continuous banter about the greatness being in the future, this is how we show what we truly are? Into the garbage chute, flyboys!
This hurts like getting your damn hand was cut off, doesn't it? (believe me, I know the feeling)
Truth be told, though, if you were honestly a good observer, you'd know we didn't have a chance in holy Hell of beating a team like this one. You hope for the best and all, but you honestly know the inevitable is coming.
All I can say is, if the greatness of the Raiders is in the future like a wise, old man once said, I just hope it's coming more sooner than later, kids.
Here we are again. I really want to blame Palmer like the rest of you. I really do. But when you have an offense without the help of your number 1 and 2 Running backs,...

Oft-injured Oakland running back Darren McFadden (ankle) will once again be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Cincinnati.Fantasy Spin:McFadden has never been a quick healer and the original diagnosis in Week 9 was 2-4 weeks. Marcel Reece is the best fantasy option out of the Raiders backfield after posting 193 yards from scrimmage last weekend.
The Bengals are back to the break-even mark as they get ready for a reunion. Carson Palmer is returning to town.
The Bengals (5-5) have gotten back into playoff contention by playing their best games of the season back-to-back. They've beaten the defending Super Bowl-champion Giants 31-13 and the lowly Chiefs 28-6 in the last two weeks, emerging from a four-game losing streak...
Per a tweet from Aaron Curry’s Twitter feed, he has announced he has been released by the Oakland Raiders:
Curry, drafted 4th overall in the 2009 NFL draft by the Seattle Seahawks, was widely considered to be the best linebacker in his draft, and there was even speculation he could go as high as #1 overall. He signed a 6-year, $60 million contract, with $34 million guaranteed...
Hue Jackson made a big impact in his two seasons with the Oakland Raiders.
He helped revive Darren McFadden's career, turned Darrius Heyward-Bey from a bust to a capable NFL receiver and sparked a moribund offense that was one of the most inept in the league before he arrived.
Jackson helped bring credibility back to Oakland first as offensive coordinator in 2010 and then head...

For seven seasons, Carson Palmer was the face of the Cincinnati Bengals, leading them to two playoff appearances and earning two Pro Bowl trips before the parties endured an ugly split last year.
