Found October 30, 2013 on NFL Draft Diamonds:
The Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback picture is clearer than it has been in weeks. Nick Foles will start against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday with rookie Matt Barkley serving as the backup, Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Wednesday. Over the past several weeks Matt Barkley has finished every game. What does that mean? It means Lamar […]

Have the Raiders finally found a quarterback to build around?

It has been anything but “Pride and Poise” for the Oakland Raiders. Since 2000 the Raiders have had 16 different starting quarterbacks. From the failed acquisition of Matt Flynn and Carson Palmer to the disastrous selection of Jamarcus Russell, the Raiders haven’t had the best luck at the most important position in football. Is it safe to say maybe the Raiders have finally...

Oakland Raiders should bring back Michael Huff at a cheaper price

I have always been a fan of Michael Huff ever since he came out of college. Michael Huff was probably one of the better, more athletic safeties to come out in the draft. The year that he came out with Donte Whitner he looked like he was going to be a better prospect. After several […]

Raiders run defense up to challenge facing Eagles RB LeSean McCoy: 'If you get a piece of him, hold on'

The Oakland Raiders run defense will get a stiff test against the NFL's leading rusher in Philadelphia's LeSean McCoy and they know it's going to be a battle. McCoy recognized the improved Raiders defense saying it's going to be a test, but for the Black and Silver it will be a measuring stick on how far they have come.

PHOTO: Oakland Raiders 'I Got Pryors' T-shirt

Even as Giants fan, I need one of these bad boys. Get it? This Raiders “I Got Pryors” tee might be the most perfect use of wordplay we’ve ever seen. The Raiders players and fans are notorious for run-ins with the law, and now they got one Terrelle Pryor(s). Just perfect. Thanks to BlackSportsOnline for pointing us in the right direction to find Gary Althiser, who tweeted a...

LB Miles Burris makes long awaited return to practice

According to Jerry McDonald of the Contra Costa Times, linebacker Miles Burris made his return to the practice field Wednesday, his first session since having knee surgery last January.

Oakland Raiders Shuts Down Offensively but Escapes with the Victory

The Oakland Raiders defense has been elite in their last 4 games and has only given up 3 points overall…in the first half.  However in the second half of those games the defense has given up an average of 20 points.  Oakland did manage to come out victorious in 2 out of those 4 games due to offensive productivity in the first half but if they intend to make some sort of playoff...

Who is the biggest fantasy bust at week 9?

This year in fantasy football many people were hoping on guys like Ray Rice Chris Johnson, CJ Spiller, Darren McFadden and even Trent Richardson to pick up slack. Out of all these players though only one man really stands out as being the bust in the fantasy draft. That’s Ray Rice the running back of […]

NFL regional combine dates set for 2014

While there are some critics of the Regional Combine, I have to admit this helps small schoolers out quite a bit. The cost is 275 dollars but it is worth it if you cannot get ibto a bigger pro day or you want in front of more NFL scouts. There will be 10 locations this […]

Former NFL QB Colt Brennan joins AFL's LA KISS

Tim Tebow may have turned down a job with the LA KISS, but there's another former Heisman Trophy finalist who's on board with the Arena Football League's new team. Meet the new face of the LA Kiss...former NFL quarterback and 2007 Heisman Trophy finalist Colt Brennan. "We're thrilled to bring such a dynamic and successful quarterback to our team and to our...

Oakland Raiders Awesome T-Shirt “I Got Pryors” (Photo)

This shirt, courtesy of Pro Football Focus Fantasy’s Gary Althiser (@PFF_Gary), is hysterical on so many levels. When you think of fan bases that might be heavy on the criminal records, Oakland has to leap to the forefront. It also works considering the trouble (albeit non-criminal) Terrelle Pryor got into at THE Ohio State University. And the fact that it is grammatically incorrect...

Oakland Raiders: 2013 Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#29)

Last week: 30 (+1) Record: 3-4 Aside from his NFL record 93-yard quarterback run, Terrelle Pryor struggled against the Steelers, who are one of the best defenses he’s faced this season, completing 10 of 19 for 92 yards and 2 interceptions. We know he can run, but his struggles in his last two games against the Chiefs’ and the Steelers’ defenses have to be concerning for the...

Nick Foles To Start For Eagles At QB vs Raiders

I think Chip Kelly has seen enough of Matt Barkley at this time. Tim McManus of Birds 24/7 is reporting that Kelly named Foles the starter for Sundays ballgame against the Oakland Raiders. Nick Foles will get the start, per Kelly. — Tim McManus (@Tim_McManus) October 30, 2013 Foles will now get the opportunity to redeem himself after a horrific outing against the Cowboys two weeks ago.

Explaining the Oakland Raiders Through Friday Night Lights

Which team is currently 10th in total defense? Which team is currently fifth in rushing yards per game? Which team came closer to beating the Colts in Indianapolis than the Denver Broncos did? Which team has done those things without an offensive line, with a first-year starter at quarterback, and while in the midst of a massive salary purge? That would be the Oakland Raiders...

Raiders vs. Steelers: 3 Observations

In a game that was ultimately much closer than it should have been, the Raiders bested Pittsburgh 21-18, improving to 3-4 on the season. The Steelers, who had been on a roll in recent weeks, now fall to 2-5. While the Raiders are a young team still learning how to close out games, it appears as if Pittsburgh's window is closing quickly.Oakland got off to a fast start, with Terrelle...

Eagles-Raiders Preview

The Oakland Raiders are hoping to make a push toward the playoffs, though it won't come easy if their offense continues to vanish after halftime. Thanks in part to their instability at quarterback, the Philadelphia Eagles are having trouble producing any offense at all after a hot start. Now the Eagles will turn back to Nick Foles, who will try to make the most of another chance...
