Oakland Raiders still disrespected by mass media, 32nd in ESPN future power ranking

Let’s face facts, the Oakland Raiders were the laughing stock of the NFL for YEARS and just when it looked like things were getting better with back to back 8-8 seasons, it all came crashing down again. General manager Reggie McKenzie and head coach Dennis Allen ran the team with huge disadvantages the past two seasons but are finally free of those for 2014. As a result, they went...

Getting to know Oakland Raiders wide receiver Brice Butler

Wide receiver Brice Butler joined the Oakland Raiders when they drafted him in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He was drafted out of San Diego State University where he’d transferred to for his senior year. Butler was able to start playing immediately rather than redshirting at SDSU as he’d already earned his Bachelor’s degree from University of Southern California...

Raiders Sign WR David Gilreath

  The Oakland Raiders have signed former Steelers WR David Gilreath, according to his agent Sean Stellato. Gilreath, 25, signed with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin back in 2011, but he lasted just a few months with the team before he was ultimately waived.  The Steelers would later sign him to their practice squad in 2012. Gilreath would later be promoted...

Raiders Unlikely To Keep More Than Five Receivers On Final Roster?

Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area believes that the Raiders will only keep five receivers on the final 53-man roster, with a potential of six as a special teams player. This is particularly notable because beyond free agent signing WR James Jones, there is no clear pecking order for the receivers on the depth chart.  Currently the Raiders have WR Rod Streater, Denarius Moore, Andre Holmes...

Raider Review: A look back at the 2013 draft class

The 2013 NFL draft was Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie’s second draft as the guy making the calls but his first draft with picks in the first two rounds, where the best players are taken. Unfortunately for him, neither of the guys taken in those two rounds would have much of an impact on the team in their rookie years. Fortunately for him, he was able to land a...

Raiders hope receivers improve

Some fans and critics thought Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson was too conservative in the second half of Sunday's 21-18 win over the Steelers. Well, Olson said Wednesday he wished he'd run the ball even more. "We really wanted to gut them rushing the football," said Olson, who called runs on 15 of 23 plays in the second half - for 15 yards. Oakland (3...

Analyzing Terrelle Pryor Going Into Week One

On Wednesday evening, Mike Silver of NFL Network reported that “there’s a lot of skepticism” in regards to Terrelle Pryor opening the season as the Oakland Raiders’ starter, and that some people in the Raiders’ organization believe undrafted rookie QB Matt McGloin gives the Raiders a better chance to win. And despite Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle gaining insight...

Report: Terrelle Pryor Getting Reps With Raiders First Team

Maybe I was wrong about TP2. The Raiders haven’t announced who their starting quarterback will be when the team takes the field in Indianapolis on Sunday, but if going first in offensive drills is any indication, Terrelle Pryor may have proven me wrong, and won the job. Brice Butler, Sio Moore both practicing. Pryor with first group to open drills. OT Tony Pashos No. 79 — Jerry...

Dynasty Fantasy Football Sleepers: Raiders WR Brice Butler

I don’t know why, but it seems like every off-season I become infatuated with an unknown wide receiver in Oakland.  Last year it was Rod Streater, the year before that Denarius Moore and even Jacoby Ford to a degree.  I guess I’m hoping against hope that someone in Oakland is eventually going to emerge as a legitimate WR2 and I don’t want to miss the bus.  I’ve literally...

Why the Raiders failed to convert 4th & inches versus the Saints

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...

Raiders recap versus the Saints

Tonight the Raiders played the Saints. Here are some observations I made. QB Battle- Matt Flynn started shaky but had a great drive to end the half. Pryor played poorly, not as bad as the stats suggest but if the starter was decided based on one game it would certainly be Flynn. Greg Olson- OC Greg Olson was certainly a lackluster hire but I was impressed about how he adapted to...

With the Raiders first pre-season game in the books, TFDS looks at what good and bad came from the game: The Good -Brice Butler: We’ll start with the play of the game, a 30 yard finger-tip TD snag by rookie WR Brice Butler that gave the Raiders the go-ahead points.

Raiders get off to winning start, down Cowboys 19-17

Not great but not bad either. There weren't any absolute truths to be gleaned from the Raiders 19-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Friday night in their exhibition opener but there were signs the team could be an improvement over last season's 4-12 disaster. No reason to schedule a parade perhaps but considering many prognosticators consider the Raiders to be one of the...

Oakland Raiders camp battle update: wide receiver

Coming into camp, the wide receiver battle seemed likely to be one of the least competitive. I thought that it was likely a given that Denarius Moore and Rod Streater would be the starters, Jacoby Ford and Josh Cribbs were likely to be in the mix with the two receivers the Raiders have drafted, Juron Criner last year and Brice Butler this, making the team for depth. Those were...

The Oakland Raiders have a bunch of talented but unproven wide receivers throughout the roster.
