Despite the Improvements, Raiders Remain Inconsistent

The Raiders’ season, for all intents and purposes, ended on Sunday. After Jacoby Ford took the opening kick back 101 yards for a score, many of us thought–yours truly included–that they were going to rebound from the week’s drubbing the week prior in Pittsburgh and rebound against the Miami Dolphins. Many of us were wrong. […]

Even on an off week – the Radiers win

You know the feeling you get when you reach into your pocket of your jeans, and you pull out a 20-dollar bill you had totally forgotten about? It’s a mix of surprise, happiness, and bewilderment.

Something good out of the Raiders win over St.Louis

Something really good came out of Sunday’s win for the Raiders. Bruce Gradkowski? Not really. Darren McFadden? Sure, yes. Rolando McClain and Lamarr Houston? Both looked good at times, no doubt. But the single best thing to come out of the Raiders win? Oakland has wide receivers again. True-blue silver and black wide receivers. Louis […]

Coach Tom Cable will announce his week three starting quarterback on Wednesday.
