Notes from Oakland Raiders training camp, day 6

It was the first day back for the players after having Wednesday off. They practiced without pads, today, and there was a noticeable lack of crispness at points, especially for the offense. Dennis Allen said that he didn’t think the day was too bad considering the fact that the players were re-acclimating after their first day off. Allen said, “As far as practice went out...

Oakland Raiders Rebuilding Secondary with Interchangable Parts

After injuries ravaged the secondary a season ago, the focus of general manager Reggie McKenzie was to solidify the positions this offseason.

Multitude of signings allow Raiders draft flexibility

In the last few days the Raiders signed a pair of cornerbacks – former first round pick Mike Jenkins formally of the Cowboys and last year’s nickel corner in Silver and Black Joselio Hanson.  The two corners join previous free agent addition Tracy Porter, who signed with Oakland last week.

Report: Raiders re-sign cornerback Joselio Hanson

Reggie McKenzie must have had some sort of wholesale deal for defenders, because the reported signing of cornerback Joselio Hanson would mark the fourth defensive player the Raiders have reached a new agreement with on Tuesday alone.  Hason, 31, will return to the Raiders secondary this season on a one-year deal, according to reports and Hanson himself: Raider Nation I’m Back...

Patient Raiders will look to leverage deep free agency to find some gems

The Raiders are unlikely to make an early splash in free agency but that doesn’t mean that they won’t be able to find some great players. The Raiders have needs on the offensive line and the defensive line, in the linebacking corps and in the secondary.  They also have to find a starting tight end. Not all of these positions will come in free agency, of course, but the...

Does USC's Nickell Robey Fit Well With Oakland?

The Oakland Raiders are one of the few teams in the league that truly need help at every position, and cornerback is no exception. Starting cornerbacks Shawnte Spencer and Joselio Hanson are free agents next season, and it is unlikely that they keep both of them for next season. USC's Nickell Robey is probably one of the most undersized players at his position, however, watching...

By the Numbers: 2012 Raiders statistics from PFF and FBO

There are a few different ways to grade football players.  One is by looking at tape and grading what your eye sees.  That can be highly subjective, however, with the viewer’s own prejudices coming out.  Another very common way to look at a team’s success and failure is through statistical analysis.  Statistics are objective – although the application and interpretation...

Raiders drop to Broncos, 26-13

The Raiders extended their losing streak to 6 straight and dropped their overall record to 3-10 with a 26-13 loss to the rival Denver Broncos. The Raiders were large underdogs coming into the game but looked like they might be able to make it interesting as they went into half only down 6 points to the Manning-led Broncos. They came out driving well in the second half, as...

Raiders need win 'real, real bad'

If it seems the Raiders can't get any lower, consider how they would feel if they lose to the Cleveland Browns. How badly do the Raiders (3-8) need a win? "Oh, very bad," defensive tackle Tommy Kelly said. "Very bad, man. Real bad. Real, real bad." Mired in their first four-game losing streak since 2008, the Raiders have given up 169 points in those...

Raiders frustrated by their play, blown whistle

The Raiders were still smoldering after an official's inadvertent whistle erased what could have been a 25-yard touchdown return of a fumble by Tyvon Branch. Yes, the Raiders acknowledged their role in a 34-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, and the fact that sleepwalking through a 24-0 first half was ultimately the reason for their demise. Yet a team struggling as much as...

Raiders drop to 3-8, where do they go from here?

The Raiders lost an ugly game to Cincinnati today, losing 34-10 and falling to 3-8 on the season.  While the Raiders showed some fight at times it was a game that went all Cincinnati’s way. The Raiders were shut out in the first half of the game and went into halftime down 21-0.  The Raiders allowed BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who is not typically a big-play running back to run...

Harry Douglas Makes Catch Off Of Pass Which Hit Raiders Defender’s Helmet

Matt Ryan threw a not so perfect pass to Harry Douglas, but thanks to a bit of luck it ended up just fine. Ryan’s throw actually bounced off of the Raiders’ Joselio Hanson’s helmet and Harry was in the right place at the right time, and pulled in the catch. I’m fairly certain that this is not the way it was drawn it, but none of the Falcons are complaining. Article found...

Oakland Raiders: Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#31)

Last week: 31 (+0) Record: 0-2 I called this team overrated before the season and said they were one of the worst teams in the league and an ugly 35-13 loss to the Dolphins is making that look pretty good. The new regime has a lot of promise, but they inherited a mess, an 8 win team (with a Pythagorean Expectation of 6 wins for stat nerds) that was above the cap and didn’t have...
