Oakland Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour is a glass half full kind of guy.  He has to be after the Raiders have given up 22, 35, 31 and 37 in their past four games. Oakland 1-3 start isn’t only on the defense, but Seymour still believes they can be a good unit. Seymour spoke to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle about the defense’s troubles. "We're so close on so many plays. It's fixable," he said. "We're headed in the right direction."   "Teams are getting the ball out quick to try to tire" the defensive line, Seymour said. "We've got to get our hands up and challenge them on the edges."   "I said all off-season, all camp, I believed in this scheme," defensive back Michael Huff said. "So, it doesn't really have anything to do with the scheme of things. It's just us players aren't really executing when we need to. The playmakers aren't making plays when we have to. For us, the playe...

For The Oakland Raiders, All Is Not Completely Lost

Raiders fans found themselves in an all too familiar place after Sunday's shellacking delivered courtesy of a rejuvenated Peyton Manning and the rest of Denver's dominating crew. After more than 10 years of losing (or at best .500) seasons, silver and black die-hards should certainly be used to a sputtering offense and a defense with more holes than Swiss cheese.  Still...

Running backs in the NFL today

NFL running backs have one of the most punishing jobs in professional sports. Between grueling workouts in taped and beaten running shoes, dodging and blocking tackles and navigating the at-times chaotic patterns of the West Coast and Wildcat offenses, they also have to be sure to hang on to the ball. Despite their big roles on the field, the position has lost some clout in fantasy...

Oakland Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey back at practice

After a scary helmet to helmet collision resulted in a concussion, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey returned to practice. The former first round pick missed Sunday's loss to the Denver Broncos, but practicing in a limited fashion today is an encouraging sign that he could return after Oakland's bye week. “I passed the test to go out here and practice,”...

Raiders' Heyward-Bey returns to practice

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, who had to be carted off the field after taking a blow to the head in the game against Pittsburgh on Sept. 23, was back practicing with the Raiders on Tuesday, multiple media outlets reported. Heyward-Bey sustained a concussion and neck strain from the helmet-to-helmet blow delivered by Ryan Mundy, who was fined $21,000 for the...

Oakland Raiders: Week 5 NFL Power Rankings (#30)

Last week: 31 (+1) Record: 1-3 I knew that win over the Steelers was a fluke. The Raiders looked awful in all facets of the game last week and once again look like the worst team in the league as they did two weeks ago. They rank 27th in the league in yards per play differential. Their defense is a mess and they just don’t have the offensive talent to keep up. I’ve said all along...

Richard Seymour misses practice

According to Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times, there was no sign of Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Richard Seymour at practice on Wednesday. It looks like the Raiders are having Seymour rest his knee.  If he doesn’t practice tomorrow, then I’d be concerned about his status for this week’s game.

Raiders' Heyward-Bey back at practice

Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey was back at practice for the first time since being hospitalized by a helmet-to-helmet hit as the Oakland Raiders worked on fixing their problems during the bye week.

Don't quit on these Oakland Raiders

Editors note: I am proud to introduce to the Dark Side, Raider Nation Superfan himself; Darth Raider. Yes, THAT Darth Raider. The man in the black suit and cape who sits in the North endzone opposite the Black Hole aptly named "The Dark Side" merely because of his presence. He is home at last to take his post on the Deathstar at Thoughts From the Dark Side. The force is...
