Oakland Raiders: In Search of an Identity

42

It seems that after the 23-13 loss handed to the Oakland Raiders by the Cleveland Browns a FirstEnergy Stadium,  my beloved team is still in search of an identity.  Hopefully they’ll find one that doesn’t involve breaking the longest losing streak in Raiders history.   But what will that identity be ? Are we going to be a strong offensive ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders:  Oakland being Oakland?

17-17

Coach Tony Sparano summed up the Oakland Raiders 24-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals at O.co saying Oakland is Oakland. He said that the team focused on the 3rd down situations on both sides of the ball the past week,  and they’d  be focusing on it again this upcoming week,  again. He put emphasis on the word again. But what ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders: No Moral Victory

75

In post game conferences, Oakland Raiders Head Coach  Tony Sparano and quarter back Derek Carr both made clear  that  the 31-28 loss to their divisional rivals, the San Diego Chargers at O.co, was a loss.  Period. They are both right.  All that counts at the end of the season is Win-Loss record, and  currently the Raiders are at 0-5. I know that many  fans were pleased ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders: No Excuses For Loss, Just Lack of Play

59

I sat in disbelief as I watched the Oakland Raiders go down to the Miami Dolphins 38-14 in England. We can’t blame the time change, as the Raiders flew back to England immediately following the loss to the NE Patriots.  They had plenty of time to adjust to  the time change.  There was no reason to be exhausted.  T As ...

Gridiron Classic…No More.

What happened to our beloved game of Football we knew growing up as kids? The game that called for the survival of the fittest, where the rough and tough not only roamed, but dominated, physically. The game that called for the mano y mano showdown in practice. Tackling drills were spectacles for players, coaches, fans, and parents alike. Lineman battled ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders: No More Moore

76

After a holding call that  Coach Allen doesn’t believe was holding,  on rookie Gabe Jackson negated a Darren McFadden  touchdown , my beloved  Oakland Raiders fell in Foxborough,  16-9 to the  New England Fake, make that New England Patriots. How did we get to within a tie game in the final minute of regulation? Not easily and with a lot ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders: Same Ol’ Song “I Promise”

6

Watching my beloved Oakland Raiders fall 30-14 against the Houston Texans, a team they  beat the last  two meetings ,in their home opener at O.co Stadium was painful for me. I am going to start off with the obvious.  A team can NOT turn over the ball 4 times and expect  to win.  Period, end of statement. Usually at this ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders: Stalled Carr?

62

I had hopes of the Oakland Raiders going across the country  and downing  the New York Jets, but the last minute efforts weren’t enough,  and the Raiders were the ones grounded, 14-19. So what happened? I had my concerns when we named Derek Carr, the rookie quarter back, as starter.  I was even more worried when I saw that wide ... Read More »

A New Era: Oakland Raiders Put Hopes In Derek Carr

20

For the second year in a row, the Oakland Raiders have benched a weak-armed quarterback named Matt and put their hopes in a young quarterback. Unlike last year, the Raiders might have given the keys to the franchise to a future star. It’s fitting that the player who the Raiders believe will lead the team out of a dark decade is a lifelong member ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders: Super Seattle Seahawks Stunned in Oakland

40

If anyone told Pete Carroll that his defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks would fall to the Oakland Raiders at O.co 41-31 in the final pre-season match up for both teams, I think he would have laughed.  What happened to the Seahawks, however, left Raiders fans smiling and the Seattle fans shaking their heads. Oakland deferred after winning the coin ... Read More »
