SEATTLE -- The Oakland Raiders' offense was stuffed all evening in a 21-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night at CenturyLink Field. The Raiders finished the preseason 1-3, and they were nearly shut out for a second time. Oakland's only points came on an Eddy Carmona 31-yard field goal in the final minute. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor started the second half for Oakland off a dynamic performance last Saturday against Detroit, when he completed three of five passes for 137 yards, including 40- and 74-yard touchdown passes to Juron Criner. Thursday was not a repeat. His first possession, Pryor handed the ball off twice before completing a swing pass Mike Goodson for minus-5 yards. He opened his second possession by being sacked, but on third-and-13, Pryor powered free of a sack to complete a 25-yard pass to Eddie McGee. Two plays later, Pryor was called for a delay-of-game penalty, showing the yin and yang of his abilities. Pryor then scrambled out of bounds ...

Denarius Moore entered the NFL in 2011, absent of any significant hype. The Raiders selected him with the 148th overall pick, in the fifth round of the draft. But he even though he entered his initial training camp amid sizable competition from a cluster of talented yet youthful WRs, he made a rapid and distinctly positive impression. Most observers believed that he was the most...
The Oakland Raiders recently signed Roscoe Parrish after he was released by the San Diego Chargers and Parrish was signed for one reason that many may not readily see. It’s not because the Raiders are thin at wide receiver with the injuries to Denarius Moore and Jacoby Ford. It’s not because Parrish has always been [...]

It’s just preseason

That was the negative chorus heard around Century Link Field Thursday night after the Seahawks beat the Oakland Raiders 21-3 to advance to a perfect 4-0 in preseason action.
The only other time in Seattle history the team has gone 4-0 was 2009, Jim Mora’s first (and thankfully only) season at the helm.
We all know how that year...
Seahawks final roster cuts
When I was assigned this piece by my editor “Q“, he was pretty vague. I simply needed to come up with 5 players who would stay and 5 who would go from the Seahawks 2012 roster.
I could have taken the easy route and listed players like Earl Thomas and Lavasier Tuinei, but what fun would that be. I’m pretty sure I knew what he was implying.
By 6PM Friday, all NFL teams need to cut down to a roster of 53 players. This means that NFL teams have to cut 22 players from their current 75-man roster. At first, 53 doesn’t seem like a very small number; there are only 22 people on the field at any one time. It would seem that a roster size of more than twice the number of people on the field would allow teams to have all the...
