Oakland Raiders fans will be ticked if this Week 9 bold prediction comes true

Anyone can pick games. Whether selecting winners or making guesses against the spread, it’s essentially an exercise in flipping a coin. But providing some specifics about what’s going to happen in a game, detailing how things are going to play out, takes some thought, imagination and guts. And it actually provides some insight into what’s going to transpire on Sunday and Monday...

Was LaVar Arrington’s Halloween costume RACIST? (PHOTO)

Today, former NFL superstar LaVar Arrington dressed up for Halloween the best way he could, by putting on a costume of J.J. Watt.  Watt is the best defensive player in the NFL and I feel that LaVar was just trying to show support for Watt, but the fans were outraged claiming a double standard. .@LaVarArrington […] The post Was LaVar Arrington’s Halloween costume RACIST? appeared...

Five questions answered about the horribly horrible Oakland Raiders

It’s Friday and that means every now and then I like to put on my ninja suit and slip into an enemy NFL city and learn everything I can about the Seattle Seahawks’ next opponent. This week I flew out of Sea-Tac in a private single engine Cessna and parachuted into Oakland proper under cover of darkness. Once I was there I snuck up on our old frenemy James Arcellana, Managing...

New list rips Oakland Raiders fans as one of NFL’s most overhyped things

Yawn. That’s how the sports world collectively responded to Tuesday’s trade deadline in the NFL, a much-anticipated day that wound up generating less than Al Capone’s vault. Aside from a couple of transactions made by the lowly Buccaneers, involving a couple of players that most people had never heard of, the deadline came and went without anyone noticing. Given the hype that...

Was the Oakland Raiders Week 9 tilt announced as a top game to watch?

The leaves are turning. Halloween decorations are up throughout the neighborhood. And the days are getting shorter and shorter. What do those things signal? Football games are getting more and more important. This week certainly backs up that notion, as the NFL’s slate of games features plenty of match-ups with playoff implications. That may sound nutty in Week 9, but that’s...

Raiders are rebuilding at the perfect time to get a good head coach and players they need

The Oakland Raiders seem to be bad at the worst times. When guys like Andrew Luck were available, the Raiders didn’t even have a pick in the first two rounds of the draft. When they hired Dennis Allen, there really were not many other big head coaching names available, and those that were available were not interested in coaching the Raiders. The last time the Raiders did have...

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...

Raiders Mailbag: Where’s Latavius Murray? Biggest team problem? Draft plan? And more

@RaidersReporter with this being the best RB draft in years do you see Oakland using there 2nd or 3rd round pick on a Running Back? — Brian Garner (@TatumsGhost) October 29, 2014 I definitely think it’s possible but I wouldn’t bet on it. The running back position has been so devalued in the NFL and especially in the draft, you can get real quality backs in the 4th or 5th round...

Did the Oakland Raiders have any of the biggest Week 8 heroes or goats?

Nearly midway through the 2014 NFL season, the league is starting to take shape. It’s easier and easier to see what teams are contenders and which ones are just not ready for primetime. How did each team get to their current point? In part, it was because of the performance, good or bad, of some key players and coaches. Some helped their team, while others hurt the squad.

As things get worse with every passing week for the Oakland Raiders, the disenchantment of Raiders fans reaches never before seen lows.

With each passing week, it becomes increasingly more difficult and painful to find positive things to say about the Oakland Raiders and their abysmal start to the season.  Still the only winless team in the NFL, the Raiders traveled to Cleveland to take on the Browns in week eight and fans traveled in from all over to see a frustrating loss.  The late Al Davis’ famous Raiders’...
