Re-cap of Raiders game “live” tweet

I watch every Oakland Raiders game at least twice just because there is so much to look for. When I watch a game the first time, I am often so full of emotion and energy that I want to watch it at least once more from a more calm standpoint. When I have the chance, I like to do some “live” tweeting of my reactions to my second viewing. This year, I will be posting a recap of...

Oakland Raiders secondary is a cause for concern

The Oakland Raiders won their second preseason game of the year but it wasn’t pretty. The first team offense was unable to get much going and the first team defense allowed Matthew Stafford and crew march up and down the field on them. Once the starters were out of the game, the second and third stringers for the Raiders began a comeback that eventually led to a winning drive at...

Should the Raiders Sign Another Free Agent Cornerback?

Second year Cornerback D.J. Hayden is out of action for at least up to 4 weeks. His time frame was 4-8 weeks from surgery he underwent a month ago to repair a stress fracture in his foot. His early camp injuries in his first two seasons has set him way back in terms of his development. This has also left a big question mark for the Raiders secondary. There is Tarell Brown and Carlos...

Raiders camp preview: Is cornerback a position of concern?

It might feel as though the Oakland Raiders have signed more corner backs than anything else, but the Raiders really only have ten CBs on roster.

So if that’s what Oakland offered to get Brown, what did the 49ers pony up to keep him? “[I]t wasn’t what I wanted and it was to me more of a slap in the face,” Brown told Erik Kuselias of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN. “But I understand...
