Donald Penn explains the problem with the Raiders perfectly

In back to back weeks now, you could argue that the Oakland Raiders should have won, but failed to do so. Not because the other team beat them or out classed them, but because they failed themselves. There have been four untimely turnovers, bad penalties, head scratching play calls, missed field goals, missed tackles and pretty much every other way of beating yourself that can be...

Who Made The Fat Guy Play Of The Day--Cardinals Cory Redding Or Raiders Donald Penn?

From time to time the men in the trenches get to do things they don't normally do. It is the opinion of the good folks (me) here at that these plays should be recognized for the wonderfulness that they are. Sunday's slate of action happened to have two pretty great ones.There was Cardinals defensive lineman Cory Redding trying to hurdle Matthew Stafford after he...

Top offensive performers on the Raiders through first quarter of the season

The Oakland Raiders are one quarter of the way through the 2015 NFL season and that’s typically a good time to take an inventory of what you have on your team. Through the first game or two, it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s fluky about a team, but with four games in the books, we have a lot better of an idea on what this team is all about. Standing at 2-2, things...

The secret to why Raiders tackle Donald Penn will have a good season

Last year, many believed that Oakland Raiders starting left tackle Donald Penn was all but washed up. He was coming off of his worst season as a pro with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when he got cut. Luckily for him, the Raiders were in desperate need of a left tackle after letting Jared Veldheer walk and opting not to sign Rodger Saffold. Penn soon found himself a member of the Silver...

Why 2015 could be rough for Raiders tackle Donald Penn

Honestly, no one expected Donald Penn to amount to more than a transitional player, making way for a 2015 draft pick to take his starting spot. Reggie McKenzie didn’t choose a tackle with anything resembling a high pick. That should give Penn cause to believe his is the Raiders’ left tackle for the foreseeable future. As we progress toward kickoff, Carr’s blindside protector...

Donald Penn easing fears about the OT position as the OL struggles

The Oakland Raiders spent considerable time and money upgrading their offensive line during the offseason. Bringing in three new starters and a new key reserve, the hope was that they could take a group that has been a weak link for a decade and finally make it a strength. Unfortunately, the offensive line has not looked very good in the preseason and was especially bad against the...

Oakland Raiders: Left tackle and center are locked up

It seems that there are two offensive linemen that have shown they deserve a starting position this coming season for the Oakland Raiders. Those guys are left tackle Donald Penn and center Stefan Wisniewski. In fact, last Tuesday in an interview with the Bay Area News Group, head coach Dennis Allen said those were the only two set positions on the line. Wisniewski is three-year...

Donald Penn sees great potential in Menelik Watson

The Oakland Raiders drastically upgraded their roster over the off season while placing much of their focus on improving play in the trenches on both sides of the ball. When the 2014 season starts, the Raiders very well could have up to four new starters along the offensive line including two new starting tackles, one who is just beginning his career and one who is on the backside...

Report: Donald Penn may soon be replaced

As each day passes, it seems as if there are more and more that suggest the Buccaneers will be giving the offense a new look — personnel wise. We now know it’ll begin with the offensive line and the first one that may be replaced is left tackle Donald Penn.  Penn was the first to criticize his poor play after the 2013 season concluded. From being beat consistently in Week 1...
