Raiders coaches refuse to make adjustments in the run game

One of the biggest disappointments for the Oakland Raiders this season has been their run game. After an offseason spent adding massive linemen who were supposed to run blocking machines, this is not what fans expected. The run game has looked absolutely non existent as the Raiders are currently last in yards and tied for last in touchdowns. Part of the problem is that the offensive...

Porn star says Sebastian Janikowski parties most of any NFL player

When the Oakland Raiders drafted Sebastian Janikowski, they knew he was a guy who liked to party. In college, he had two run ins with the law after getting in fights outside of bars, and at one point was arrested for attempting to bribe a police officer not to arrest his friend. So it’s not surprising that when porn star Brooke Haven was stopped by a TMZ reporter, she named Janikowski...

Sparano’s confusing use of Raiders wide receiver Brice Butler

In his first game as interim head coach of the Oakland Raiders, Tony Sparano mixed things up at wide receiver. Rather than sticking to the stubborn ways of Dennis Allen, Sparano gave his young and unproven guys a chance to step up and grab the bull by the horns. The result? Rookie quarterback Derek Carr had a career day and the Raiders offense put up twice as many points as they...

Tony Sparano says a lot while saying nothing after Raiders loss

Now that week seven is in the books, it has become painfully obvious just how over the season is for the Oakland Raiders. They are now the only team in the NFL that has yet to win a game. Even the Jacksonville Jaguars managed to pull off a win on Sunday and they are a team so awful that they need to bait fans with free beer and a swimming pool in order to try to get them to attend...

Raiders Use McFadden, Not MJD Again In Week 7

Raiders running back Darren McFadden rushed 14 times for 48 yards.Fantasy Spin:Not pretty, but at least he's getting the opportunities.

Raiders need a quarterback to be the consensus number one pick in 2015

The Oakland Raiders season is over. I know they have only played six games, but they have lost every one of those games and have already played the easiest portion of their schedule. They have made a head coaching change and while it resulted in seeing more effort from the team, it has not resulted in more wins and if anything, has shown how bad the roster really is. There is no...

Husky Browns Fan in Frye Jersey Lies Unconscious in Parking Lot (Photo)

After having experts predict that they’d make the playoffs, the Browns led an egg in Jacksonville on Sunday getting blown out 24-7. This poor Browns fan either had a few too many beers, or was just knocked out by the bad product he saw on the field. I guess it doesn’t help his cause that he’s passed out wearing an old Charlie Frye jersey. h/t Deadspin
