Preview: Patriots vs. Raiders

Last Sunday, the New England Patriots (1-1) were able to find a way to get in the win column with a 30-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings. While the offense wasn’t as consistent as Patriots’ fans would like it, Stevan Ridley was still able to run for 101 yards and a touchdown in the win. The star of the game was the defense. After giving up a touchdown to Matt Cassel and company...

Packers Beer Mug Perspective: The James Jones Void

In each of the past three regular season games for the Green Bay Packers, Jordy Nelson has received more targets from Aaron Rodgers than he has ever had in a game. He had 16 targets and 9 receptions against the New York Jets, 14 targets and 9 receptions against the Seattle Seahawks, and 16 targets and 10 receptions against the Chicago Bears at the end of last season.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 3

I am going to limit the list to players who are less than 60% owned on average. My goal is to give you a list each week of players who are most likely still available. No reason to tell you about Terrance West because at 90% owned it isn’t going to help you.

Why the Raiders shouldn’t fire Dennis Allen… yet.

I am not endorsing Dennis Allen for the future. He hasn’t shown much to inspire hope in his head coaching ability. At least Hue Jackson tried fake punts, flea flickers and painting his toenails to put us in a position to win. But Raider Nation needs to calm down. It is ridiculous to fire a coach after only two games, and I can’t believe fans are serious about it. If Allen finishes...

Oakland Raiders creating own NFL Films blooper reel

*It is highly advised that you read this piece while listening to this. It really sets the tone* It’s bad enough that the Oakland Raiders suck, but they are taking it to a whole new level. Not only is the team incapable of competing, it is failing in hilarious and circus like ways. It’s as if the team has done something to anger the football gods so much that they are retaliating...

Raiders WR James Jones Fumbles Twice On Same Play In Blowout Loss (Video)

Life with the Oakland Raiders is not fun these days. The Raiders were on the wrong end of another blowout Sunday, as the Houston Texans went into Oakland and steamrolled the Raiders 30-14. With the loss, the Raiders are now 0-2, and the future doesn’t look much better as they’ll likely be two-touchdown underdogs next weekend against the New England Patriots. Wide receiver James...

James Jones fumbles twice ... on the same play

It's probably not quite the Butt Fumble (sorry Mark Sanchez, we'll never forget), but what Raiders James Jones did on Sunday. On a second-and-4 in the second quarter, Jones hauled in a pass from Derek Carr on the sideline. He was fortunate enough to cough up the ball and recover it. Great, right? Well... not really. Check out what happens on the rest of the play. Face-palm...

James Jones Fumbled Twice … On The Same Play

James Jones caught a pass, then he fumbled, then he scooped it up, then he ran for a little bit, then he fumbled again, and then the Texans recovered it.

Takeaways: Thoughts on the Raiders 19-14 loss to the Jets

It is a make or break season for Raiders head coach Dennis Allen and his staff, who have gone 4-12 in their first two seasons in Oakland and must show improvement in 2014 to stay. You would think that sort of pressure would make a man edgy, but whatever reason, Allen doesn’t seem worried about it. All through camp and preseason, Allen dismissed worries about pass rush deficiency...
