Jerry Jones is becoming the new Al Davis

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

If Dallas Cowboys fans want a crystal ball into their future, they needn't look any further than the Oakland Raiders. The once-proud organization run into the scorched earth by demented late owner Al Davis appears to be serving as the template for the Cowboys, who will be doing the same ...

Raiders defense continues putrid play

Monday, November 12th, 2012

They say Al Davis is dead, but from the looks of it he's been playing Bernie Lomax-style on the Raiders defense the past two weeks. (If you think that's a low blow, Raider Nation, at least I'm not running fake field goals against you when I'm up 24 points in ...

Terrelle Pryor Is Worth Oakland’s Third Round Pick

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

Former Ohio State quarterback and currently suspended NFL draftee Terrelle Pryor getting drafted by Oakland is so obvious I can't believe I didn't think of it when Pryor declared for the supplemental draft. It's a perfect relationship, and it has nothing to do with the fact that I'm a Chargers ...

The Future of JaMarcus Russell

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

With the Raiders trading for Jason Campbell and JaMarcus Russell reportedly weighing in at over 300 pounds these days, it seems pretty clear that Mr. Russell's future in Oakland is over. And if you can't make it in Oakland, you can also be fairly certain that your future in football ...

Would The Raiders Draft A Quarterback?

Monday, September 28th, 2009

The Oakland Raiders were spanked by the Denver Broncos at home yesterday, 23-3. Just to run this by you again: A Kyle Orton-led team slapped around a team with a former No. 1 overall draft pick as its quarterback. To quote Vince Lombardi (as I often do), "What the hell ...
