Oakland Raiders 5-2, Not a Time to Rest on Laurels


I was thrilled to see a more than 1 score victory by my beloved Oakland Raiders as they took care of the Jacksonville Jaguars, 33-16, at EverBank Field in Florida.   It wasn’t an easy game, despite what the score may show.  To begin with, it was warm.  The game started at roughly 70 degrees, and went up to a ...

Oakland Raiders: Tired of Lip Service


I had fully expected to be writing about another skin of the teeth victory for my beloved Oakland Raiders against the Kansas City Chiefs, not shaking my head in dismay at the team’s dismal performance in a 26-10 home  loss.   I wish I were at a loss at where to begin, but sadly I am not.  This is the second ...

Oakland Raiders:  Closer Than It Should Have Been


The Oakland Raiders are sitting in first place in the AFC West courtesy of the Atlanta Falcons taking down a formidable Denver Broncos team, and more importantly, taking care of business by beating the San Diego Chargers, 34-31, in their first home game win of the season.   Last game, I was very disappointed with the offense, more directly the fact that ...

Oakland Raiders: 3-1, But Needs Improvement


The Oakland Raiders pulled out their 3rd win of the season, 28-27, taking down one the last of the unbeaten teams, the Baltimore Ravens, in the 2nd of back-to-back road games. I am happy for the win. It’s a good start for us, especially considering that between the win in Tennessee and the win in Baltimore, the Raiders traveled roughly ... Read More »

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 »
