Five players who Raiders fans should be excited about

I’ll get this out of the way up front. None of these will make you feel much better about this season. At this point, there really is not a lot to be excited about in 2014. But with that being said, there are still reasons to be excited for the future of the Oakland Raiders. There are young players on this team that are going to develop into the core of a good team. The problem...

Can Vincent Brown make a difference for the Raiders offense?

The Oakland Raiders offense has been terrible so far this season. After putting up less than 160 yards in the season opener, the Raiders were unable to find the endzone until the fourth quarter, after the game was well out of hand in the second game. The list of reasons the offense is struggling seems never ending, but somewhere near the top of that list is the need for consistency...

Raiders sign Vincent Brown as Rod Streater undergoes MRI

The Raiders signed former third-rond pick Vincent Brown to a one-year contract on Monday. Signing Brown at the same time that No. 1 wide receiver Rod Streater underwent an MRI on his him flexor would suggest that the team had legitimate concerns. Brown broke his ankle in 2012 and has not been the same. He failed to make the final cuts this summer this summer with the Chargers. He...

Oakland Raiders sign WR Vincent Brown

The Oakland Raiders, already thin at the wide receiver position, lost Rod Streater to a hip injury in Sunday’s loss to the Houston Texans. Streater underwent an MRI on Monday, but the results aren’t yet known. Even with a healthy Streater though, Oakland could use upgrades at the position.

TOJ – New York Jets Secondary Grade Sheet (Week 1)

The Jets’ defense didn’t have to do all that much versus a bland Raiders’ offense to find themselves at the top of most of the league’s defensive statistic categories. Derek Carr was grounded by his coaches’ vanilla gameplan and as a result, the Jets’ secondary only had a handful of plays where they had a chance to make a significant impact. Hell, the Fresno State rookie...

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...

Oakland Raiders Fantasy Football Outlook

Oakland Raiders tumble down preseason Power Rankings, check in at No. 31

Every team has played two games. Most of the starters have seen enough action to provide a sense of what a team has to offer. And the picture is becoming clearer around the league. Yes, it’s dangerous to put too much stock in preseason games. But it’s also foolish to ignore information that can be very valuable, which is what exhibitions provide to the keen observer.
