Happy hump day, Raider Nation! The NFL regular season will kick off one week from today. In the meantime, we’ll have another week of preseason games to evaluate players as the teams (including the Oakland Raiders) continue to trim their rosters. Let’s take a look around the rest of the AFC West and see what’s [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
As the Raiders travel to play the Seattle Seahawks Thursday night in their final preseason game, Oakland must avoid injuries and evaluate players for the final 53 man roster. With the final cuts coming Friday evening, this will be the last time the Raiders coaching staff and management will be able to see the bubble roster players. Starters are not expected to play much in this...
According to Kevin Fishbaine of ProFootballWeekly.com, the San Diego Chargers believe wide receiver Vincent Brown will be able to come back in the second half of the season and make an impact.
The way we hear it, the Chargers still expect Brown to return for the second half of the regular season, which would give them a boost down the stretch. Brown’s return from the injury...
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 [...]
Here is your 2012 Fantasy Football Preview on the Oakland Raiders. This list features analysis on the wide receivers, running backs, quarterbacks, as well as the tight end position and the defense as a whole.
In addition, we mention the guys most likely to become the best sleeper, riskiest player, biggest bust, most valuable player, and the kicker, too.
The third pre-season game of 2012, widely considered the most important one, is now history and it’s time to see how the Oakland Raiders’ offense performed against Detroit. Although the Lions are not known for their defense, but instead for their powerful offense, it was still a very good challenge for the Silver & Black [...]
Whereas the typical Chargers M.O. under Norv Turner has been to stumble out of the gates only to rally late for a playoff spot set aside for them because they’ve been the only halfway decent team in their division for some time now, in 2011 San Diego started 4-1, only to lose six straight. Their Week 17 victory over the Raiders also enabled the Broncos to win the division when...
Reason for Optimism in Oakland? Raider Nation! As most of you know, the third preseason game is the most important one (especially for these Oakland Raiders). As far as preseason goes, what we saw on the field Saturday night against a playoff team from last year was the closest thing to a “dress rehearsal” for [...]
According to Chargers’ beat writer Kevin Acee, left tackle Jared Gaither is not expected to play in the Chargers’ preseason finale this week and the Chargers are preparing to play week 1 without him. Gaither has been suffering from back spasms and missed all of the preseason and Training Camp, very bad news for him because he missed essentially a year and a half with back problems...
The 49ers ended the preseason with a bang Thursday night, dominating the San Diego Chargers 35-3 at Candlestick Park to finish their summer exhibition slate with a 3-1 record and give the team considerable momentum heading into their titanic regular-season opener at Green Bay next week.
Hot News for WR Roscoe Parrish
The final axe falls on Friday, when the Chargers must trim their roster from 75 down to 53. And because of A.J. Smith's emphasis on bolstering depth this offseason, this will be the most difficult cut-down day of the Norv Turner era. Here is our final projection of what the opening-day roster will look like.
