Tosh.O rips former Oakland Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin a new one on his show

Anyone who follows me knows I am not a very big fan of former Oakland Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin. I know that he was not entirely to blame for what happened during his tenure, after all, as everyone knows, he wanted to draft Calvin Johnson rather than JaMarcus Russell.

Is the Oakland Raiders’ search for a franchise quarterback over?

The Oakland Raiders have been struggling since their Super Bowl loss in 2003. They have compiled a record of 53-123 since then, going 4-12 in five of the past eleven seasons.

Oakland Raiders worst QB ever might not be as obvious as you think

The Oakland Raiders have a long history of drafting quarterbacks that did not pan out to well as is demonstrated by my list of every quarterback ever drafted by the Oakland Raiders dating back to 1960. In that piece, I was analyzing all of the quarterbacks drafted by the Raiders in order to determine who the best ever was. That, as it turned out, was a rather easy task. Ken “The...
