After taking a huge lead by half time, I have to admit I had a feeling of trepitdation, and rightfully so, after barely getting by the Carolina Panthers in Oakland in a 35-32 victory.   It was a victory, none the less, and that is what counts, though I think I am going to need to start carrying around nitroglycerin tablets ...

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 ...

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 ...

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?

10

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 »
