Raiders back to their award winning ways

In the NFL, winning begets winning. So it makes sense that as soon as the Raiders get back to winning football games, they begin winning awards again. This week it was Michael Bush who took home some hardware as he was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week. The Raiders beat the Chargers last Sunday and a big reason they were able to do so was their ability to run the football...

Raiders do some cornerback shopping

The Raiders continue to be depleted by injury. And due to the consistent shortage of able-bodies to put on the field, they continue to work out players to try and replenish their ailing team. Today they worked out five players—four cornerbacks and a linebacker—to find out who may be out there to help. The cornerbacks are Bryan McCann, Jamar Wall, David Pender, and Mikail Baker...

Studs and Duds From Week 10

The Raiders really took it to the Chargers on Thursday night and came away with a seven-point victory in San Diego. The Raiders played well and a few players really stood out in a good way and a couple in a bad way. Special mention to the Raider Nation’s Southern California division for making the [...]

Raiders new regime: Denarius stands out, Darrius sits down

Earlier this season we saw the rise of Darrius Heyward-Bey to levels we had not seen before in his career. Now, suddenly he is the forgotten man in Oakland while Denarius Moore is suddenly the go to receiver. This change didn't happen gradually, it seemed to change overnight, much to everyone's surprise. But the reason is not hard to see. Darrius Heyward-Bey has been the...

Oakland’s Denarius Moore: A Speedy Prototype Al Davis Receiver

Denarius Moore, the soft handed rookie wide receiver from Tennessee, has found a home with the Oakland Raiders offense, now being led by ex-Bengal quarterback Carson Palmer. Owner Al Davis’ passion for speed and size was well documented, and this wide-out is no exception at six feet one, 195 pounds, and posting 4.3 times at the 2011 NFL combine. Often criticized for his draft day...

Raiders kick tires on LB McKillop

The Raiders have not been able to keep any depth at the middle linebacker this season. They lost Travis Goethel for the season in training camp. Then they signed former Raider Ricky Brown only to see him lost for the season with injury as well. Today they brought in former 49er inside linebacker Scott McKillop to fill the role. McKillop was drafted by the 49ers in the fifth round...

Darren McFadden, Jacoby Ford still out for Raiders

Praising McClain

Until Denver and their spread option read came and put up nearly 300 rushing yards on them, including two 100-yard rushers, the Raiders allowed only Fred Jackson to post a 100-yard rushing game. Four days after the Denver game, the Raiders held an offense that averages over 100 rushing yards a game to 68. So [...]

Chiefs stay grounded in '68

The Chiefs know all about beating a team without throwing the ball -- they did it themselves back in 1968. Wide receivers Otis Taylor and Gloster Richardson were injured, so coach Hank Stram had to come up with a plan that could beat the Oakland Raiders. Stram decided to grind it out, and the Chiefs ran the ball 60 times in a 24-10 win over the Raiders at Municipal Stadium. Mike...
