Watch List and Stadium Expansion On the List

The watch lists for college sports awards are more than a little waste of time. They either are too big to be useful or they simply take the best returning players at the position from last year and slap them on the list. For the most part, I don’t even waste time posting on a preseason watchlist any longer. The Rimington Trophy belongs in the former category. The award goes to...

After playing corner for most of his final year as an Oakland Raider, Baltimore Ravens safety Michael Huff is excited to focus on lining up in the middle.

Injuries piling up for Raiders

When the Oakland Raiders signed Shawntae Spencer as a free agent in March, coach Dennis Allen and general manager Reggie McKenzie hoped the veteran cornerback could help stabilize a secondary that underwent significant changes in the offseason.

Raiders' secondary took step forward in loss to Falcons

To borrow from cliche, what didn't kill the Oakland Raiders' secondary has apparently made the unit stronger. The Raiders lost both of their starting cornerbacks, Ron Bartell (broken scapula) and Shawntae Spencer (foot sprain) in the first two weeks, and neither looks to be returning within the next couple of weeks. Taking it on the chin through the first four games of...

Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos: Week 4 NFL Pick

Oakland Raiders (1-2) at Denver Broncos (1-2) I thought the Raiders were overrated coming into the season and now they’re even more overrated coming off a “surprising” win over the Steelers. Their upset win over the Steelers was not completely shocking given how much the Steelers have sucked over the last year plus on the road. They are -43 on the road in that time period,...

Pittsburgh Steelers at Oakland Raiders: Week 3 NFL Pick

Oakland Raiders (0-2) at Pittsburgh Steelers (1-1) Before the season, I made a list of underrated and overrated teams, with the intent of betting them (or against them) until the odds makers caught up and I was proven wrong. This approach has worked well for me because I’m 10-4-2 ATS on games involving those teams. One thing I was dead on about was that the Raiders would be one...
