Oakland Raiders: A Win By Any Other Name


It was difficult for me at the start of the game, watching my Oakland Raiders facing the Tennessee Titans at Nissan Stadium,  but at least it ended with a final score of 17-10 with Derek Carr taking a knee in victory formation for the Raiders. The first thing I noted,  after hearing how hot it was in Nashville, was that ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders – Big O Little d In OAKLANd


While the offensive unit for my Oakland Raiders did what it could to keep up with the visiting Atlanta Falcons, they fell a little short in the 35-28 loss in their home opener at O.co.   Last game against the Saints in New Orleans, the defense gave up 507 net yards, this game it was 528 net yards.  A team ...

Oakland Raiders: Silver and Brass?


I do not think after watching Drew Brees throw at will against my Oakland Raiders that anyone expected them to come back from a 2 touch down deficit to beat the New Orleans Saints 35-34 in New Orleans.   There are several things that make this remarkable. I’ll start off with the obvious. Drew Brees IS a premier quarterback. He ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders – It Just Doesn’t Matter

1 cover

After watching my Oakland Raiders lose yet another pre-season game at home, this time to former divisional rival, the Seattle Seahawks, by 2 points, 23-21,  I guess I could have been like some people and been upset. There is no reason to be upset.   This game, even more so than any other pre-season game, really doesn’t matter. It doesn’t ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders – Jack Doesn’t Have an Alibi


When I look at the roster for my Oakland Raiders, I have to admit to being disappointed in the 27-14 loss to the Tennessee Titans at Oakland Coliseum as the Raiders played their first home pre-season game.   Let me be clear. I couldn’t care less about the loss. Wins and losses mean NOTHING in the pre-season.  Nothing counts until ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders:  Not Ready For Prime Time Players


Following the 30-14 loss my beloved Oakland Raiders suffered at home at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings, I could only think one thing: we aren’t there yet. By not there yet, I mean the team, the players, the OC, the DC, and the HC. We were out-coached this game. We were out-played this game.  I’d hazard a guess that ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders:  NY Jets Fly Blind into The Black Hole


The somewhat lauded New York Jets encountered a slight problem when facing my Oakland Raiders at the O.co stadium in what ended up being 34-20 loss for them.  While it is abundantly clear that this isn’t last year’s Jets to many, it seems the Jets may have mistakenly believed this is last year’s Raiders. To start off with, quarterback Derek ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders- Prevent vs Potential

HS 6

My beloved Oakland Raiders ended their divisional road game losing streak with a 37- 29 win over the hapless San Diego Chargers. Don’t let the score fool you.  The game was not that close, but the problem is, it could have been. This is the problem I have had with this Raiders’ team coaching staff.  We don’t go for the ...

Oakland Raiders: Motive and Opportunity


I don’t know exactly what comes to mind when I think of the Oakland Raiders 16-10 loss to the Denver Broncos at O.co dropping us to 2-3 for the season.  All I know is that we could have had this game. It was the Raiders game to win or lose.  I can’t think that the Broncos wanted it more. In ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders: Changes Pave the Road to Victory


As I watched the last minute of my beloved Oakland Raiders take down the Cleveland Browns 27-20 at FirstEnergy Stadium, it struck me how crucial a call by an official can be. I was reminded of a game in Cleveland back in 2003 that came down to a play that changed the flavor of the game. As I recall, the ... Read More »
