Brady has never talked about "Tuck Play" with Charles Woodson

Photo from John WilcoxMost of us remember the "Tuck Play," when Charles Woodson appeared to force a fumble in the "Snow Bowl" in New England back in 2001, but the play was overturned because of the tuck rule and cost the Oakland Raiders the game and propelled the Pats to the 1st of 3 Super Bowls. Now, the Raiders come to Gillette Stadium on Sunday and Charles...

Why are the Raiders so much worse? Coaching? Personnel? Both?

The Oakland Raiders are terrible. After the first two weeks of the season, whether or not they are the worst team in the league is a legitimate discussion to have. The team struggled in week one with an almost inept offensive performance only to follow that up with an embarrassing performance by the entire team in week two. But the big question is why? Why is a team that appears...

Did the Oakland Raiders have any of Week 2′s biggest heroes or goats?

Some teams are off to a fast start, others are stumbling out of the gates, and a majority are languishing somewhere in the middle. That’s the NFL landscape after two games. 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.

Can Vincent Brown make a difference for the Raiders offense?

The Oakland Raiders offense has been terrible so far this season. After putting up less than 160 yards in the season opener, the Raiders were unable to find the endzone until the fourth quarter, after the game was well out of hand in the second game. The list of reasons the offense is struggling seems never ending, but somewhere near the top of that list is the need for consistency...

Raiders big free agent signings are big flops so far

Three of the biggest free agent signings by the Oakland Raiders this offseason were Justin Tuck, LaMarr Woodley and Antonio Smith. The Raiders defensive line in 2013 was unable to get any sort of pressure on the quarterback and general manager Reggie McKenzie wanted to address that fact. Woodley, Smith and Tuck were his way of doing so. But two games into the 2014 campaign and combined...

Why the Raiders shouldn’t fire Dennis Allen… yet.

I am not endorsing Dennis Allen for the future. He hasn’t shown much to inspire hope in his head coaching ability. At least Hue Jackson tried fake punts, flea flickers and painting his toenails to put us in a position to win. But Raider Nation needs to calm down. It is ridiculous to fire a coach after only two games, and I can’t believe fans are serious about it. If Allen finishes...

Sio Moore loses two thousand followers after Raiders lose

There probably isn’t a player on the Oakland Raiders who loves Raider Nation more than Sio Moore. The second year linebacker bought into the Silver and Black persona almost immediately. Every home game you can see him hyping up the crowd and signaling to the Black Hole. Unfortunately, a portion of the fan base decided not to return the love after the Raiders lost to the Texans...
