PLAYERS: Taiwan Jones
TEAMS: Oakland Raiders
Oakland Raiders defensive back Taiwan Jones displayed his impressive athletic skill by jumping cleanly over a parked BMW while out on the town Tuesday night. Jones was with fellow Raiders DB Tyvon Branch and a group of friends when he was presented with the challenge. After tying his shoes extra tight, Jones made the jump - and cleared it. Even more importantly, Jones did not hurt himself, which is good news because he would have had a lot of trouble explaining that one to his coaches. Video via @TyvonBranch / Instagram.

Raiders CB jumps over car for $200

Some of the Raiders went out to celebrate Darren McFadden’s 26th birthday Tuesday night. (It looked like a swell night, BTW.) At some point of the evening cornerback Taiwan Jones was dared to jump over a car. Jones is the freak of an athlete who wasn’t even playing on defense last year and who, more notably, jumped out of a swimming pool backward once upon a time. If he completed...

Oakland Raiders CB Taiwan Jones jumps over car to win $200 bet

Oakland Raiders cornerback Taiwan Jones was out for runningback Darren McFadden’s birthday when he was bet $200 he couldn’t jump over a BMW.  Raiders safety Tyvon Branch recorded the jump and posted it to his Instagram page and as you can see, Jones was successful.  Good thing for Jones that the car wasn’t moving and that he was able to do it without getting injured.  I’m...

The TP2 Factor: The Oakland Raiders Are Relevant Again

The other day I was watching SportsCenter and to my surprise they actually had a segment on the Oakland Raiders. I am usually skeptical of anything ESPN does on the Raiders because anytime they mention the Raiders or their fans it is in a condescending tone. However, they spent the segment interviewing quarterback Terrelle Pryor and showing some of his highlights from the preseason...

The Great Letdown: Latavius Murray Out For Season

The Oakland Raiders cannot catch a break this off-season. After losing their most important offensive player Jared Veldheer for at least six games this year, they have just put their most intriguing offensive player, Latavius Murray on injured reserve, which will keep him on the sidelines until 2014. While Murray was obviously not going to become a starter this year because of the...

How the Raiders may handle the McGloin/Wilson situation

I’ve recently given a lot of thought (from the dark side…?) to what it means that Matt McGloin has continually received more passes than 4th round pick Tyler Wilson in practices. I think that coaching staff does genuinely like McGloin but I also think that the coaches like Wilson’s long term potential. Wilson may not be exceling immediately but he has the skills to be able...

Raiders Down to 75: Murray and Hanson to IR, Burris to PUP

The Oakland Raiders completed their roster transactions in order to trim down the roster to 75 players by today, August 27th, as determined by the NFL. The Silver & Black had already cut 10 players on Sunday, in a list that included return specialist Josh Cribbs. No players have been released to reach the day’s mandatory number, as running back […]

Terrelle Pryor: Still Learning in Seattle

Strapped with a play calling wristband and the determination to improve every day, Terrelle Pryor started tonight for the Oakland Raiders in their final preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks. It has been a tumultuous preseason for the Raiders whose first team performances in the two previous games against the New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears was nothing short of calamitous...

Pryor makes case to become Raiders starting QB

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor is assured a roster spot going into the last preseason game of the year. A roster spot is exactly what several players around the league are playing for, however for Pryor that is not enough. He is working to start. “Every day, I’m trying to get one percent better, and I won’t stop until I get to my goal,” Pryor said. “My goal is to be a starting...

What to Watch: Preseason Week 4, Raiders vs Seahawks

Tonight is the Raiders' final preseason game.  While usually the fourth preseason game holds very little importance, that isn't the case for this young and unproven Raiders team.  This game is very important for several players, and I'm going to look at a few of them here. Terrelle Pryor This one is a no-brainer.  Due to Flynn's poor performance this preseason...

Darren McFadden hopes to remain with Raiders

The Oakland Raiders are hoping for big things from running back Darren McFadden, who is entering a contract year, this season. As such, there is some expectation that McFadden accumulates the best totals he can this year in an effort to score big on the free agent market. While there’s a chance McFadden could be playing elsewhere next season, he told CSN Bay Area that he loves...

Darren McFadden Wants To Be A Raider For Life

Darren McFadden is entering a contract year, and the oft injured, but talented running back is just looking to put together a complete season at this point. The question now is what can we as football enthusiast, and the Raiders as McFadden’s employer for at least the next 18 weeks, expect from a running back looking to cash in. McFadden who shows flashes of greatness, followed...
