If you’re an NFL rookie who thinks you have it bad, just be thankful you don’t play in Oakland. We don’t really know if their rookies actually get the worst haircuts or if they simply do a great job of publicizing it, but any rookie who plays for the Raiders might as well completely shave their own head before training camp begins. Otherwise, there’s no guarantee you won’t end up with a penis haircut.
As you can see from the photos above that Joseph Barksdale shared with us on Twitter, a couple of Raiders rookies got horrible haircuts from the veterans — one of which Busted Coverage is certain is Carson Palmer because of the distinguished chin. As we saw last summer, this isn’t the first time a batch of rookies has been demolished by the buzzer in Oakland. Jack Del Rio banned hazing haircuts in Jacksonville after the veterans decided to hand out these penis-themed haircuts, so it will be interesting to see if the Raiders do the same. I think I speak for everyone when I say I’m pray...

Less than 24 hours after announcing they had waived/injured two players, the Oakland Raiders have announced the signing of Korey Bosworth to replace one of the two vacated roster spots (leaving the team with 87 of 90 spots filled). Bosworth, listed at 6’1″ and 230lbs., came into the league in 2010, signing as an undrafted [...]
The 2012 NFL Pre-Season is officially underway for the Oakland Raiders. And what better way to start football again with a Monday Night contest?

Oakland Raiders preseason football debuted on Monday Night and even though the score was a 3-0 victory for the Cowboys there was still a lot to like about the debut. Some significant players had a great game and others struggled enormously which should cause concern for anyone. What makes this Cowboys game great for evaluation [...]
Raiders head coach Dennis Allen updated the status of some of the team's injured players after practice yesterday in advance of Fridays's game with the Arizona Cardinals.First, injured RB Mike Goodson, who was out with a neck injury following a very scary collision during a practice with pads last week returned to practice and is set to get his first playing time in Silver...
Inconsistency was the word of the game for the Raiders who were shut out at home in their 2012 preseason opener versus the Dallas Cowboys.
The starting offense only played a few series and moved the ball well but some miscues between QB Carson Palmer and WR Jacoby Ford kept them from capitalizing on Darren McFadden's hard running.
In the first drive, the Raiders moved down...
Darren McFadden needed one series to show he's in midseason form for Oakland following a foot injury that cut his last season short.
Most of the rest of the first-team offensive players for the Raiders and Dallas Cowboys need plenty of work to get back to that level.
McFadden picked up where he left off last season by gaining 38 yards on Oakland's first three plays of the...
The long anticipated return to live action for the Oakland Raiders ended in a 3-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football in their preseason opener. The score in preseason games matter little because the starters and contributors play very little. The Raiders were able to get a look at the players on the roster and evaluate the strength and weaknesses.
It's early yet to start predicting the effectiveness of any NFL team's offense or defense, since we're primarily seeing names on the backs of Raiders jerseys we might never hear of again.
However, if Monday night's preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys is any indication, fans of the silver and black may be able to cheer on a defense that hearkens back to a more...
