Cold Hard Football Facts:
Despite the new regime, it's the same old Raiders as mistakes lead to home loss against Phillip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers.

The Chargers barely beat an overrated Raiders team that was shooting themselves in the foot all night. Yep, it’s the same old early season Chargers. That game reminds me of their close early season wins against bad teams last year, Miami, Denver, Minnesota, and Kansas City, all by 10 or fewer points. Playing a real team next week in the Titans, they might not find themselves so...
According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Chargers left tackle Jared Gaither will likely miss this week’s game and could end up being done for the season at some point.
“Indications from inside the organization are that his back malady will keep him out of at least next week’s home against the Tennessee Titans,” wrote the Tribune.
The Chargers are looking on the open market for...

According to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Chargers tight end Antonio Gates (ribs) did not practice Wednesday.Fantasy Spin:Gates caught four passes for 43 yards in the team's opener Monday night, but he injured his ribs during the game. That's disappointing news to those who were expecting an injury-free season from the oft-injured tight end. Gates should...
Coming off a key division win over their rivals in Oakland on Monday night, the Chargers had reason to be happy today, even as one of their defensive starters received news that no player wants to hear, with cornerback Quentin Jammer diagnosed as having broken his hand during the contest.
Although the normal course of action to treat such an injury would likely include plenty of...
Norv Turner seems so calm, cool, and collected. Love to see him firing off at someone…now he knows how we all feel whenever he makes some stupid ass call. Muchas Gracias @sbanation for the f*ckin awesome GIF.

The beachfront home where former NFL linebacker Junior Seau killed himself has been sold for nearly $2 million.
The North County Times reports (bit.ly/RTzS2g) the two-story, three-bedroom home in Oceanside was recently sold for $1.97 million. It was listed in late July for almost $2.3 million.
Seau bought the house for $3.2 million in 2005.

Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers capitalized on mistakes instead of making them for a change. Rivers threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Malcom Floyd and Nate Kaeding kicked five field goals to spoil Dennis Allen's debut as Oakland coach by beating the Raiders 22-14 on Monday night.
The New Orleans Saints had one of the most prolific offenses in the NFL led by Drew Brees over the last six seasons and the Saints lost key players over the course of those seasons like Reggie Bush and found replacements for Bush with Darren Sproles for example, but the loss of Robert Meachum this past offseason, showed against the Redskins and possibly will lead the Saints out of...
The final contest of Week 1, surprisingly, will be between the teams expected to fight for 3rd and 4th in the AFC North. Both teams have high ceilings but expectations have been reined in for seemingly yearly disappointment. It must be tough, in 2012, to be a fan of either of these teams. Both are mediocre at best with enough knuckleheads on the sidelines to drive you nuts.
The late Monday night game showcasing the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers was probably missed by fans of either team who reside on the East Coast as the contest ended after one in the morning. That was probably for the best as Oakland lost what looked to be a battle of ineptitude 22-14.Early risers might have been fooled initially by the final score into thinking it was...
