JAMARCUS RUSSELL RUMORS

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.

Clearly he was right about that. But since then, he has shown himself to be a rather less than stellar human...

Like the Jaguars, the Raiders just can’t seem to shake this consistent rut they are in of year to year ineptitude. Since they lost the Super Bowl to Tampa Bay in 2002, the Raiders have not had a single winning season or playoff berth. And based on the way this season...

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. Their biggest problem is a lack of leadership and skill at the quarterback position since their franchise quarterback, Rich Gannon, retired in 2004. Gannon was a back-to-back Pro Bowl MVP and NFL MVP in 2002...

Oakland Raiders cannot repeat past draft mistakes at QB and WR

The Oakland Raiders have done a nice job in free agency this year. A shaky start has given way to some promising veteran signings and some stability at positions sorely lacking it. Now the biggest piece of the puzzle lies ahead in the NFL draft and I for one am worried they are set up to repeat past mistakes. As Johnny Manziel meets with the team representatives today I am reminded...

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...
