What up RaiderNation? Welcome to this week’s edition of My Two Cents, with your favorite old man Raider fan, Old Timer. First of all, I want to thank all of you who participated in last week’s poll. It appears that RaiderNation agrees with me that Rolando McClain is the defensive player most likely to be cut or traded after the [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
The Raiders franchise has been a mess for over a decade. They need to take a hard look at how things are being run.
As we get closer to the end of the season it's time to start looking ahead to the coaching changes for next year.
Here's a quick look at the teams I think will, or should, be looking for a coaching change when the season ends.
Sebastian Janikowski literally kicked the Oakland Raiders out of their six game losing streak, as “Seabass” tied his career-high with 5 field-goals made, including a season-best from 57 yards out, to score all 15 points for the Silver&Black. The defense dominated the whole contest, achieving 7 consecutive 3&outs to start off the game and also forcing 4 turnovers, 3 of [...]
Steve Corkran of the Oakland Tribune reports that Raiders Head Coach Dennis Allen will be looking to give playing time to QB Terrelle Pryor and various others on the 53 man roster.
With the playoffs out of reach, the team will look to see what it has in its backups, in Pryor’s case the offense installed a package of plays weeks ago for Pryor to run yet the proper situation...
Rod Streater signed with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent immediately following the conclusion of the draft.
A product of Temple University, Streater’s odds were long to make the Raiders 53 man roster. However, after a strong preseason, Streater left an impression that earned him a roster spot.
Streater is 6th among NFL rookie wide receivers with 28 receptions and is...
Oakland Raiders safety Tyvon Branch practiced for the first time this week, an encouraging turn for a struggling secondary sorely lacking depth.
The news wasn't as promising for Richard Seymour. The seven-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle has not played since injuring his hamstring on Nov. 4 and did not practice Friday after aggravating the same injury a day earlier.
It was Thursday Night Football and all eyes were on the O.Co Coliseum, but, unfortunately, the Oakland Raiders were not ready for prime time. The Silver&Black once again were defeated by AFC West rival Denver Broncos and saw their record drop to 3 and 11. The loss is the sixth straight for the Raiders, whose 13 points were not enough to [...]
Well Raider Nation, in terms of what’s going on in the AFC West, last week just provided more of the same with one surprise. San Diego somehow managed to beat the Steelers, which should have shocked many. Outside of that, Oakland kept it closer than I thought they would against Denver and the Kansas City Chiefs kept themselves in the [...]
Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden is set to make
his second start since suffering a high ankle sprain, while defensive lineman
Richard Seymour and safety Tyvon Branch are questionable to play against the
Kansas City Chiefs today.
McFadden returned for the Raiders last week for their
contest against the Denver Broncos. He only carried the ball 11 times for 52
This piece is the first of a few in which I will go through my thoughts on the likely direction of the Oakland Raiders at the conclusion of the season. Future articles will discuss my predictions on the direction of the offense and defense in general and specific players.
Here are my thoughts on the coaching staff. I try to walk through this very logically and sequentially...
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Sometimes it can be awfully hard to pinpoint exactly when and where a horrible team such as the Kansas City Chiefs actually hits rock bottom.
Not the case anymore for the Chiefs.
One wouldn't need a GPS to determine rock bottom came Sunday in Oakland where the Chiefs fell 15-0 to the Raiders in one of the most feeble efforts in Chiefs franchise history...
The Raiders recorded their first shutout since 2002 with a 15-0 victory over the hapless Kansas City Chiefs, today. The game was the team’s last home game of the season.
The Chiefs were terrible on offense the entire game, failing to get so much as a first down until the second half. Brady Quinn, who was once in the conversation for the number one overall pick along with...
Kansas City Chiefs (2-11) at Oakland Raiders (3-10)
I picked the Chiefs as 6.5 point dogs last week in Cleveland because they were in such a good spot, but I made sure not to make it a huge play because I wasn’t sure how they’d respond once they had a week for the Jovan Belcher situation to settle in. In hindsight, I probably should have avoided the game entirely like I did the...
