Oakland Raiders at New England Patriots: 2014 Week 3 NFL Pick

Oakland Raiders (0-2) at New England Patriots (1-1) The trends say that the Patriots should be the right side, as they have another easy game coming up in Kansas City next week, while the Raiders host the Dolphins next week. Teams are 68-44 ATS since 2012 before being 3+ point road favorites the following week. However, I’m very hesitant to lay 14 points with the Patriots right...

Isn’t it bad enough that the Oakland Raiders have subjected their fan base to painfully bad football this season? Apparently not. According to a report on BusinessInsider.com, grabbing a beer at a Raiders game will cost you more than getting a beer at any other stadium in the NFL. If you are in the mood to drown your sorrows as the Raiders struggle through another season, it is...

Oakland at New England: Five Things to Know

Even if CBS sent the 1:00 A-team to this game, Vegas and all your friends say it will be a blowout. It's conventional wisdom that the Raiders stand no chance: not when it's 1:00 on the east coast, against a perennial playoff team in their home opener, and not when the talent-gap appears to be so wide.Wait, doesn't that sound eerily similar to what everybody told you two...

Oakland Raiders free agents deemed top disappointment so far

It’s early. That’s a true statement, as we’re only two games into a 16-game season. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t enough data to start assessing the performance thus far of every team, player and coach in the NFL. And when the grades start getting compiled, there are some dismal marks on the report. Slow starts abound around the league. Who falls into this category...

Derek Carr steps into role as a leader with post game speech

Derek Carr is a rookie with two NFL games under his belt as a starter. In both of those games, the Oakland Raiders lost and did so in rather embarrassing fashion. Carr has had his ups and downs in those two games and has yet to really have a break out performance (though admittedly that will be tough with the supporting cast he has). But despite the fact that Carr is busy trying...

Has Reggie McKenzie done enough to save his job with the Raiders?

8-26. Think about that. That’s Reggie McKenzie’s record so far as a general manager. To be fair, I believe the cap hell we were in the last two years is largely responsible for that. But starting this year 0-2, and probably 0-4 before the bye, means we have to question McKenzie as a GM. Building a roster is McKenzie’s primary goal, but let’s not forget the other critical...
