The Oakland Raiders will get a welcome addition back at practice Wednesday when cornerback Ron Bartell suits up for the first time since suffering a fractured scapula in his shoulder. Oakland placed Bartell on the reserve/injured list September 15th and this is the first week he is eligible to practice. “He will practice Wednesday, yeah,” Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said. “At least that’s the anticipation as of today."”””  Bartell will not be eligible to play for another two weeks, but coming back to practice is a huge step forward. The Raiders brought him in to be the starting cornerback this offseason and he played well against the San Diego Chargers in week one before the injury. With the two week waiting period, Bartell will be able to ease back into football activities, but it seems like the shoulder injury is healed. “No limitations that I’m really aware of,” Allen said of Bartell's injury.“ We’ll get him out there. The only limitation I see is just his ph

Offensive Game Grades: Week 8 vs. Kansas City

The Oakland Raiders feel at home inside the Arrowhead Stadium. For the sixth straight game, the Silver & Black went to Kansas City and came back with a win over the Chiefs. It didn’t take a game-winning field goal by Sebastian Janikowski like the last time these two rivals met though, as the Raiders were able to build a comfortable [...]

Janikowski Honored…Again

Sebastian Janikowski was just awarded the AFC special teams player of the month award for the third time in the last four months. “SeaBass” finished the month of October converting 10-11 field goal attempts with the only miss being a 64 yard attempt against the Jaguars. He ended up sealing that game up with a field goal in overtime. Janikowski [...]

Tale of the Tape: RT Willie Smith

When the Raiders signed a former undrafted free agent named Willie Smith it seemed like he was going to be another camp body – someone to provide competition and to spread out the many reps that everyone gets in training camp but not someone who was likely to make the team. Not only did Smith make the team but when starting RT Khalif Barnes went down with a groin injury, head...

Darren McFadden & Howie Long Fans Team Up To Rob Pizza Shop

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

Last week: 29 (+2) Record: 3-4 After unimpressive wins over the crappy Jaguars and Chiefs, the Raiders are now 3-4 and somehow right in the thick of the playoff race. However, I’m still not sold on this team just because they beat some crappy teams. They schedule gets tougher going forward as they host Tampa Bay, go to Baltimore, host New Orleans, go to Cincinnati, host Cleveland...

Raiders' ground game took off late in win over Chiefs

For one week, anyway, the Oakland Raiders' beleaguered running game delivered when it mattered most. Other than a Week 2 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, when Darren McFadden gained 113 yards on 19 carries, the Raiders' ground game hadn't done much other than gain a tough yard or two. Certainly there was none of the consistency or even occasional fireworks McFadden...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Oakland Raiders: Week 9 NFL Pick

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-4) at Oakland Raiders (3-4) After unimpressive wins over the Jaguars and Chiefs, the Raiders now sit at 3-4 and are somehow in the AFC playoff mix. However, they still aren’t very good. They have a point differential of -42. They got blown out in Oakland and in Miami and they weren’t impressive in either of their last 2 wins against crappy teams. They...

A presence I've not felt since...

DOMINANCE! That is what happened last Sunday in Kansas City. If it could only be that easy every week, Raider Nation! Enjoy the Victory! Impressive. MOST IMPRESSIVE! I don't really care if it was ugly, scrappy, or difficult to watch. I also don't give a Death Star damn what type of team they were labeled as before the win by our beloved, Oakland Raiders. The bottom...
