Is Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen on the hot seat?

The Oakland Raiders have stumbled to a 4-10 record this season after a disappointing 4-12 record in 2012. After just two years in charge of the Silver and Black, could head coach Dennis Allen already be on his way out by the Bay? That’s the way it looks right now.

Instant Impressions: Raiders Stumble to 4-10

Ugh. I just…I don’t even know where to start with what happened this afternoon. 1. Remember when this team had a defense? Hahahahaha. This game, from the getgo, was an absolute disaster. Kansas City scored virtually at will behind a monster performance from Jamaal Charles. His first touch of the day was a 49-yard TD on a screen where he sliced through Oakland’s defense, and...

Oakland Raiders: Epic Fail

I was trying to figure out exactly how to describe the 56-31 loss the Oakland Raiders took at the hands of their divisional rivals, the Kansas City Chiefs.  I like to think of myself as having a certain level of intelligence, yet I find myself resorting to social media slang.  This game was an epic fail from beginning to end. It started on the opening kickoff.  Quentin Demps fielded...

After giving up 24 straight points in week 6, the Oakland Raiders allowed the Kansas City Chiefs to dictate the game and to destroy Terrelle Pryor at quarterback.  Today rookie Matt Mcgloin will likely get the start and Oakland should have a better chance with a home field advantage and a more efficient offensive line while the chiefs are coming off of a 3 game losing streak before...

Reece comfortable as jack of all trades

Marcel Reece won’t be the Raiders feature back on Sunday, despite a unique ability to do so. The veteran fullback has excelled in every start as primary ball carrier, exceeding 100 yards total offense in four of five starts. Reece was never better against the New York Jets, when he had a career-best 123 rushing yards and 161 yards total offense. That deserves an encore he won’t...

Raiders Rant #3

The Oakland Raiders have been one of the NFL’s laughing stocks for the past decade. The franchise has not had a winning season since their Super Bowl appearance in 2002-2003. This season the Raiders have once again missed the playoffs and it’s very disappointing as a raiders fan to see this. Tons of blame has fell on second year head coach Dennis Allen and general manager Reggie...

Raiders vs. Chiefs: Keys to the Game

When the Raiders visited Arrowhead earlier in the 2013 season, a promising start quickly took an awful turn. Oakland’s defense held up their end of the bargain, but the offensive line could not protect then-starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Pryor was rendered completely ineffective all game, and eventually the Chiefs proved to be too much for the Raiders to handle.So what to...
