Review Category : Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders had a ton of money to spend last year and they let down their whole fan base. Justin Tuck was a good pick up, and Charles Woodson was fantastic. Woodson was actually under paid and might be under paid again this year but that is a different story. Reggie McKenzie should be feeling the pressure this offseason. He blew it by getting rid of Hugh Jackson for Dennis Allen, he blew it with last years free agency signings when he had more than $60 million to spend, and Raider Nation is praying he wont make the same mistakes again in 2015. We will take a look at the best fits for the Raiders in free agency. Not just the biggest names, but what makes sense when we also think of the 2015 NFL Draft. We aren’t going to over do it and make a dream team. Keeping ...

The Oakland Raiders could arguably be the most hated team in the NFL. And they are especially hated in their rival teams city San Diego. Though teams, and fans alike no longer need to hate the Raiders for their physical, and what some used to think 20 years ago violent, and against the rules style of play, they still can hate on the Raider fans. Raider Nation is a wild and hardcore fan base. They get dressed up, hyped up, and get loud for their undeserving team. A Bail bondsman in San Diego saw a great opportunity this past weekend to get some advertising. “King” Stahlman bail bonds made a commercial pointing out why they loved when the Raiders come to town to play the San Diego Chargers. Take a look here: Raider fans show up in big numbers in San Diego. Some not having to travel to far since the ...

Many people over the past 12 years have told me the same joke, “Do you know why the Raiders are so bad? It is because the eye patch is over the good eye.” Yea it is an old one, but now I’m really starting to believe it. The Raiders have had one embarrassing season, and it is only the halfway point. They have been blown out by teams like the Texans and Dolphins, and self destruct against games they have a chance to win against the Jets, Patriots, Chargers, and Browns. Were is the line between the coaches making bad calls, and players not doing their job? After an 0-4 start the Raiders owner Mark Davis fired possibly the worst coach in Raiders history Dennis Allen. That has been the highlight of the year for Raider Nation. There are problems to point out, but there are solutions that will get a talented ...

The Oakland Raiders have fired head coach Dennis Allen. The Raiders waited for the team to get back from England before making the announcement. The Raiders decided to fire their worst coach probably of all time, over the phone. Maybe because they didn’t want to deal with him crying. After 2+ years Dennis Allen went 8-28 and constantly blamed his players instead of himself for mistakes and losses. Nobody in Raider Nation will miss him. Previous head coach Hugh Jackson had 8 wins in his only season. Maybe Mark Davis and Reggie McKenzie should beg Hugh to come back. The Raiders need to make a choice who will take over for Allen. Tony Sparano seems to be the logical choice. He is the only coach on the team that has seen success as a head coach in the league. ...

Raider Nation isn’t happy about Dennis Allen and the coaching staff. They are wondering why he is still coach, and why he was a better choice over former coach Hugh Jackson, who in his lone season went 8-8. Allen is only 8-28 in his 2+ seasons with the team. Here is the best reaction on twitter after the Raiders blow out loss in England against the Miami Dolphins. Why hasn’t Dennis Allen been fired yet Why hasn’t Dennis Allen been fired yet Why hasn’t Dennis Allen been fired yet Why hasn’t Dennis All — Chandler Miller (@CM_Draft) September 29, 2014 Raider fans, go follow @DAFiredYet for status on whether or not Dennis Allen is fired yet, haha. — CRBUKE (@CRBUKE) September 29, 2014 Time is right for #Raiders to fire Dennis Allen http://t.co/nF77j1ZOfF — RAIDERNATION NEWS (@YourAutumnWind) September 29, 2014 I’ll say this… Hue Jackson still has more wins in ...

Image Credit Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports It gets kind of tiresome listening to a team make excuses for their short comings. Promising better results by making “fixable mistakes”. After twelve years of being the bottom feeders of the NFL, Charles Woodson is tired of it and saying it like it is. The Raiders “suck” and who knows if they will be able to fix these correctable mistakes. Going into a game where they were three point favorites, the Raiders got embarrassed in front of their home crowd. Here is Charles Woodson’s epic post game interview:                                                                                                         (Arian Foster breaking through the Raiders defense)   Q: How surprising is today’s result?  A: It’s disappointing. I don’t know what else to say about it. Coming into the season we felt a lot better about where we were at that point. For whatever reason we haven’t put it together on the field.  Q: Why did they ...

After coach Dennis Allen mishandled the QB situation last year by trading for Matt Flynn, only to release him after his only start, then to start Terrelle Pryor then bench him only to start him again, Allen seems to have messed up again. This offseason he traded for Matt Schaub to immediately name him the starter. Then after drafting Derek Carr in the 2nd round of the NFL draft, Allen kept to his guns. Even after three bad showings for Schaub in the pre season he was still the guy. It seems as though Allen was forced after a spectacular showing from Carr against the Seattle Seahawks were he went 11-13 with three TDs. There are three big reasons Raider fans and NFL fans alike should be excited about Derek Carr starting week one. #1. Carr is the Only Rookie to Start Week 1 It has been a few years ...

This past week the Oakland Raiders came out and explained QB Matt Schaub’s lack of arm strength saying he has tendinitis in his throwing elbow. Schaub sat out of Thursday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. The Raiders started rookie second round draft pick Derek Carr in his place, and let’s say he didn’t disappoint. He threw for 143 yards and 3 TDs. Saying he was impressive is an understatement. All pre season it has been apparent that Schaub’s arm isn’t what it used to be, constantly not making outside or deep passes. It seems as though offensive coordinator Greg Olsen calls short routes for Schaub, and the deeper more exciting plays for Derek Carr and Matt Mcgloin. Schaub has shown in the past that he can lead a team, but with the exciting performance of Derek Carr, and the inability to show Raider Nation he has fixed his mistakes ...

Week three of the pre season is usually the more exciting one. We are able to see the starters settle down for a little bit and play a couple quarters. As fans we are able to see where our team is at and how recently signed free agents and top draft picks are doing. Some teams are disappointing and others showing they have what it takes. Here are the big hits from this week. Sam Bradford Out For the Season QB Sam Bradford of the St Louis Rams hyper extended the same knee he injured last season. He will miss the season which is unfortunate because according to many this was a make or break year for him. He was looking very good this pre season after coming back from last year’s season ending injury. We might never know how good Bradford can after this injury. The Rams more than ...
