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 »

Oakland Raiders: Finding A Way

HS 7

I do believe the Baltimore Ravens were a little surprised by the intensity of the Oakland Raiders they faced at O.co as they fell to Raiders 37-33, with the Raiders getting the go ahead and winning touchdown with a mere 26 seconds on the clock. This game, from strictly a competitive perspective, has to be one of the best games ... Read More »

Oakland Raiders – No Answer to No Huddle


There isn’t much to comment on in the embarrassingly one-sided 33-13 loss the Oakland Raiders suffered in their home opener against the Cincinnati Bengals, yet oddly, I feel like saying a lot. Post-game I understand that  the team as a whole was embarrassed by their performance.  They should be.  Aside from any player pulling double duty,I am personally of the mind the ... Read More »

Oakland Raider- TGNO Thank Goodness No OT!


I don’t think I was the only one that was thankful when the Arizona Cardinals scored a touchdown and PAT  took the lead ,30-23, against my beloved Oakland Raiders at O.co in the 3rd pre-season game. I can’t think of a single person that wanted the game to go into overtime. Well, probably bubble players like George Atkinson III.  However ... Read More »

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 »
