Thoughts from the Dark Side:
Kansas City Chiefs
It's a beautiful thing when our team wins, eh Nation?
Time and time again, we have not seen our Oakland Raider scheme execute in a manner we would like it to. Week after week, we wonder what type of players we have on our team; pondering which players should stay and which players should leave the facility as quickly as the Falcon clears Space.
So, it is kind of weird seeing all of it come together on a special Sunday. Is all forgiven? Of course not! Allen and Knapp, the Nation still wonders today why in the HELL you would pump up the crowd by putting in Terrelle Pryor for one series in which he would only pass one damn time? Now is the time to give him AT LEAST a half to work with. Why not give him the kind practice he actually needs on a real, live field?
Sith Lord knows, we have already seen what Carson Palmer can do… and then some.
You would think with an improved running game and decent blocking, CP3 would pass more efficientl...

2012 hasn’t been the model of greatness for the Oakland Raiders; the motto “just win baby,’” is replaced with “just try to win.”
In Dennis Allen’s first year as the Raiders Head Coach, he’s had to take on the previous decisions on personnel and evaluating players looking towards the future.
Installing a new offense means the team needs to have the correct personnel...
Dennis Allen has gone through a lot this season, on and off the field. He understands that there are things bigger than football, and that if you accept losing in life, your football team won’t be very good either.
In Allen’s personal life, the passing of his father must have left a huge void, but he’s never missed a game and expects his player to be as mentally tough.
According to Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times, the Oakland Raiders plan on expanding back up quarterback Terrelle Pryor’s role for this week’s game against the Panthers.
Second-year quarterback Terrelle Pryor will be used on some third-down and red-zone plays against the Panthers so that the Raiders “can create a different look the defense to contend with” and “try...
How can the Oakland Raiders, a team with defensive difficulties against both the run and pass, possibly prepare for Cam Newton? "We've got the closest guy to him right here in Terrelle Pryor," running back Mike Goodson said. Added Raiders coach Dennis Allen: "He does have some of the same skill set." Pryor has been running read-option plays during practice...
Oakland Raiders running back Mike Goodson is looking forward to playing in Carolina for the first time since being traded by the Panthers in the offseason.
He just doesn't know what type of reception to expect.
Goodson spent his first three NFL seasons with Carolina, still owns property there and routinely talks to some of his former teammates. Even Panthers coach Ron Rivera...
Oakland Raiders backup quarterback Terrelle Pryor will get significant playing time on Sunday, offensive coordinator Greg Knapp said Thursday. Knapp said the second-year quarterback from Ohio State, who got in for three plays last week, will play on third downs and more against the Carolina Panthers. "Maybe in the red zone – try and create a different look for the defense...
On Sunday, the Oakland Raiders rushed for a season high 203 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in a 15-0 win. All season when the Raiders have rushed the ball successfully, it has translated into victories. The team has a 3-2 record when they rush for over 100 yards and a 2-1 record when reaching [...]

The longest losing streak since an 11-game run in 2006 and 2007 is over, with the Oakland Raiders beating the Kansas City Chiefs 15-0 and having only one thing on their minds. Winning again. The Raiders are 4-10, with dreams of their first winning season tossed overboard three games ago. The re-adjusted goal of a third consecutive 8-8 season quickly followed, buried in an avalanche...
When the Chiefs and Raiders play in Oakland, the last place you want to be is in the stands if you are a Chiefs fan. This pigeon got that message loud and clear and did everything it possibly could for seven-plus minutes to stay on the field and away from the ‘Black Hole.’ Eventually the pigeon was caught and escorted off the field, but he put up one heck of a protest. [The...
In the kicking world there is only one Big Polish Boot and since 2000 he has owned the Bay Area!
On Sunday Sebas went nuts for the Raiders. He kicked 5 field goals in a 15-0 win over the woeful Chiefs. His day included 2 from over 50 yards! He is having a huge year for a bad team but unlike the MVP voting, Straitpinkie doesn’t care! The drunken idiot is in the running for the...
The Contra Costa Times reports that Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor will see some action on third downs and red zone plays Sunday against Carolina.Fantasy Spin:Pryor's presence could have a negative impact on Carson Palmer's fantasy value heading into what should be Championship Sunday for most fantasy leagues.
Sometimes, the funny videos that we post here at Laugh At Sports have nothing to do with the players or coaches involved with the game.Take a look at this clip from last Sunday's Oakland Raiders/Kansas City Chiefs game as a rogue pigeon decided to play some chicken on the field with some of the players.It took nearly ten minutes to get the little guy off the field and check out...
We’re winding down in the season, and if you’re reading this you’re likely in your Fantasy Championship. Congrats! If you’re not, and just like to read our takes, Thank you! Here we go with the top five tight ends of the week!

Myers has been on a bit of a downhill slide after averaging a good 15 points a week for a month and a half...
