Oakland Raiders-Game Plan Anyone?


  What can I say about the Oakland Raiders 20-12 loss to the Minnesota Vikings at TCF Bank Stadium other than they  looked like a completely different team than the one that  faced the St. Louis Rams in the first pre-season game. Well, mostly.   Let’s start off with the penalties.   Last game we had zero pre-snap penalties, and only ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders – A Whole New World?


I  know that what most people are talking about after watching my beloved Oakland Raiders18-3win over the visiting St.Louis Rams on Friday night at O.co is the what appeared to be the great connection between 2nd year former Fresno Bulldog quarterback Derek Carr and the seemingly phenom rookie  Amari Cooper, Alabama Crimson Tide’s 2014 All-American wide receiver. They may also ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders: Game Over


As  I watched my beloved Oakland Raiders fall to the Denver Broncos with the final score of 47-14,  I  have to admit  I didn’t  expect  us to win.  What I  DID  expect, however, was a game that had some semblance  of  being  a fairly officiated game. I know, that was silly of me, wasn’t it? Only ONE  penalty was assessed ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders:  7 Minutes in Heaven ,  A Season of Hell


While I  didn’t necessarily expect my beloved Oakland Raiders to  travel to  Arrowhead Stadium, face a  Kansas Chief team  fighting for a play-off berth and come away  with  a win, I  did expect them to be more competitive than the 31-13 score showed. Before I get into all of that let’s look over some key statistics. Each  team had the ... Read More »



What can I  say  about my beloved Oakland Raiders first win of the season, beating the  Kansas City  Chiefs 24-20 in the rain, in front of a sold out crowd, in Oakland?   The Oakland Raiders in Oakland + rain against KC  = Raiders VICTORY. First, I am going to start off with the ugly. Special teams coverage, which has generally ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders: More, Not Moore,  Is Needed


I really don’t know where to begin when I think about Oakland Raiders 13-6 loss to the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium. After the last game, where the offense  had 9  3 and outs,  I was still somehow expecting more this game. More accurate throws. More from the run game.  More from the special teams.    More intelligent play calling  ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders: In Search of an Identity


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?


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 »
