The struggles of the Oakland Raiders since their 2002 Super Bowl Appearance have been well recognized by the rest of the NFL and fans everywhere. From 2003 on, Oakland has gone an abysmal 49-111 in the 10 seasons since that championship appearance, and along the way the Raiders have produced an endless number of organizational low lights.

Raiders shouldn’t give up on Carson Palmer

Let’s get something straight Raider Nation. The Oakland Raiders need Carson Palmer to remain on the team if this team has any chance of recovering in the next couple of seasons, because the, “Let’s throw Palmer under the bus.” rhetoric is getting a little tired at this point.

2013 Oakland Raiders

1.)   Who knows what the Raiders plan to do with Terrelle Pryor at this point. They chose not to play him until the last game. I thought he looked good in that start, despite getting no help from his receivers. He had the offense moving as well as it did all year. 2.)   Did the … Continue reading »
