Terrelle Pryor has switched his jersey number to No. 2 for the Raiders, and to explain this curious change, one can only assume that Pryor falls into one of the following categories:
1. He is not superstitious.
2. He is crazy.
Either way, Pryor, who had been No. 6 the last two years, is still associating himself with some rather dubious and unflattering company by embracing the loneliest number since the number one.
Three other players have officially worn No. 2 for the Silver and Black: punter Leo Araguz and two quarterbacks Raiders fans are trying so desperately hard to forget: Aaron Brooks and, you guessed it, JaMarcus Russell. You know you’re dealing with a depressing collection of players when Leo Araguz is the one of the bunch who least makes you want to punch a hole in the wall.
Just for reference, here are the stats for Brooks and Russell from when they were in Oakland. Raiders fans should avert their eyes:
8 starts, 1,105 passing yards, 3 TD, 8 INT, 57.3 perc...

Very few fantasy relevant storylines fly below the radar this time of year. Those “sleepers” that you’ve known about for months have made their way into the mainstream with big preseason performances. Every semi-competitive owner in your league is aware of the latest injury news, and which players stand to benefit most as a result. To unearth a true sleeper this close to...

Denarius Moore put together a pretty good rookie season and expectations have been high for him, but can he live up to them?

The Oakland Raiders let long tenured punter Shane Lechler leave, without really extending an offer to him. They let him leave because they had a kid on the injured reserve from last year named Marquette King. Marquette is a big kid, that looks like a wide receiver. King is a guy you would not want […]
It’s pretty funny thta former NFL head coach and current ESPN Monday Night Football broadcaster Jon Gruden decided to do a Hooters commercial. h/t Terez Owens Need NFL Tickets? Loading... ZergNet The post Jon Gruden does a Hooters commercial (Video) appeared first on Pro Football Zone.
With a change at the quarterback position and the departure of Darrius Heyward-Bey to Indianapolis, many around the league expected Oakland Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore to assume a bigger role and be the true #1 option. Coming off a season in which he caught 7 touchdowns with 741 yards, it seemed only natural for the young wideout to continue to improve.
Not everyone has...
D.J. Hayden finally gets the chance to answer the critics who thought the Oakland Raiders made a risky bet when they drafted him 12th overall in April.
Hayden will make his exhibition debut for Oakland on Friday night against the Chicago Bears in his first game action of any kind since a near-fatal practice collision ended his college career last November and raised questions about...
One of the pivotal plays in the Saints first-teams drubbing the Raiders top players was Oakland’s inability to convert a first down on 4th & inches.
I was curious what had happened in this play as it was such a poor display of how to run the football and the results surprised me.
I had initially thought that the offensive line had no push and had allowed multiple defenders...
What is unemployed Matt Leinart up to these days without work in the NFL? It seems he’s just hacking around Manhattan Beach…
Let me just start by saying the Raiders offensive line is awful, especially with Jared Veldheer out for at least eight games, and nothing they can do this close to the season, aside from convincing the league to legalize holding, will be able to improve it.
That said, welcome to the team, Tony Hills!
The Raiders needed to bolster their corps of tackles and signed Hills to a contract...
The Raiders face the Chicago Bears in week 3 of the 2013 Pre-season. Here are some of the top keys for the Raiders to feel like the week was a success, no matter the final score:
1. O-line improvement: The offensive line has been just that, offensive, for the first two weeks of the pre-season. The Raiders haven’t been able to run nor has pass protection been in any way reassuring...
