One Hilariously Pathetic Play Sums Up Raiders Football Over Last Decade

The Oakland Raiders have been the laughingstock of the NFL for the last 10-plus years and that does not appear to be changing anytime soon. During their Week 10 tilt against the mighty Broncos, Derek Carr flipped a bail-out pass to his guard Khalif Barnes, who could not be more ineligible and has not carried Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Raiders O-line faces toughest test yet

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) Trying to stop Denver's pass rush tandem of defensive end DeMarcus Ware and linebacker Von Miller would be a tough challenge for the winless Raiders under the best circumstances. Doing it without a key starter certainly won't make it any easier. Rookie left guard Gabe Jackson remains sidelined with a knee injury and is likely to miss a game for the first...

Raiders have one of the best pass blocking offensive lines in the NFL

According to Pro Football Focus, the Oakland Raiders have a top ten pass blocking offensive line. This is somewhat surprising considering the fact that most people looked at the line assembled by general manager Reggie McKenzie and assumed it would be a good road grading line, but might have some issues in pass protection. Oddly enough, the exact opposite has been true through the...

Time for the Raiders to sit all of their vets, and play all their younger guys

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking the past few weeks and I’ve come to the conclusion that the Raiders won’t make the playoffs. So why the hell aren’t we blooding our young talent? Heading into Cleveland last Sunday with an 0-6 record, veteran Khalif Barnes shared snaps at right tackle with 2013 second-round pick Menelik Watson. Watson – a raw product who needs all the...

Watson to start for Raiders against Chargers

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) Even as he tries to adjust to his role as the Raiders interim coach, Tony Sparano hasn't strayed far from his duties working with the team's offensive line. It's a good thing, too. With veteran lineman Khalif Barnes sitting out Sunday's home game against San Diego with a quad strain, 2013 second-round pick Menelik Watson will make his fifth career...

Raiders vs. Texans: 5 Things to Watch

The Raiders’ 2014 started out with a fizzle last week in a very winnable match against the New York Jets. While outplayed in some facets of the game, the Raiders had plenty of opportunities to capitalize on. This week, it’s on coach Dennis Allen to get his team mentally ready after a disappointing start so that they can avoid an 0-2 record.It starts with rookie quarterback Derek...

Raiders vs Texans: What to watch

The Raiders looked nothing like the team they want to be when they took the field last Sunday versus the Jets in New Jersey. The team wants to be a power run team but ran for a measly 1.7 yards per carry on only 15 carries. The team wants to boast a strong defense, but they were roasted by the Jets offense to the tune of 402 total yards, 212 of those on the ground. We are only one...

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr named a top-5 hero in NFL from last week

Most people consider the final preseason game as a throwaway; regular starters don’t play, so it’s reserved mostly for guys who will be selling insurance three days later. But that notion, while grounded in some element of truth, isn’t 100 percent accurate. In fact, some on the bubble were able to play their way onto (and off of) rosters last week. Who fell into each category...

Oakland Raiders on the move upward in Week 1 Power Rankings

It’s here. The 2014 NFL season has finally arrived. After a seven-month hiatus, pro football is back! Heading into the new campaign, the league is filled with contenders and pretenders, teams that have a shot of winning a title and franchises that are only fooling themselves if they believe there’s a chance.

Khalif Barnes starting at right tackle is good and bad for the Raiders

Khalif Barnes is like the mosquito buzzing in your ear that you just can’t seem to kill. No matter how many times you think you’ve got the little blood sucker, it’s only a matter of time before you hear that buzzing again. At this point, there might be a bigger chance of Darren McFadden’s injury bug going away than Khalif Barnes. Barnes spent training camp an most of the...

Takeaways: Thoughts on the Raiders 41-31 victory over the Seahawks

Carr is not the Raiders QB of the future: He is not because saying that he is the QB of the future implies that he is not the QB of the present and after Thursday’s performance, he is clearly the best quarterback on the Raiders roster. Carr was an extremely impressive 11 for 13 for 143 yards and 3 TDs in the game. Yes, this was a preseason game and yes, the Seahawks did not have...

Before the NFL kicks-off for real in September with regular season games, we have now seen two weeks of preseason action for the Oakland Raiders.  There was a wave of mock depth charts that came out predicting who the starters would be for the silver and black.  For the most part, things are going as expected, with the exception of injuries, but there have been some notable changes...

Donald Penn easing fears about the OT position as the OL struggles

The Oakland Raiders spent considerable time and money upgrading their offensive line during the offseason. Bringing in three new starters and a new key reserve, the hope was that they could take a group that has been a weak link for a decade and finally make it a strength. Unfortunately, the offensive line has not looked very good in the preseason and was especially bad against the...

Oakland Raiders projected starting offense

  In the third year of a full-scale rebuild, the Oakland Raiders finally got the cap space and decent amount of draft picks to seriously move forward. There are only ten players on the roster that were part of the team in 2011, with only four of them (Khalif Barnes, Denarius Moore, Stefen Wisniewski, and Marcel Reece) expected to be starters in 2014.

Reviewing Raiders revamped offensive line

The Oakland Raiders played with maybe the most rag-tag group of offensive lineman ever in 2013. Needless to say major upgrades were needed. With the largest cap space in the NFL Reggie McKenzie had money to spend and has done well after two big hits early. The Raiders have refused to hand out any large deals this off-season and Jared Veldheer, although very reliable was a casualty...

With NFL Free Agency beginning tomorrow, here is one last look at the Oakland Raiders before the madness begins. The Raiders are coming off of back to back 4-12 seasons under new general manager Reggie McKenzie and head coach Dennis Allen. A big part of the reason behind the two bad years is that McKenzie tore things down in order to fix a terrible cap situation. Now that the Raiders...
