The Raiders should embrace their youth movement

The Raiders are all about the future, now. They may not win a game this year and, at this point, any wins they get are fine but won’t help anything. It’s not that winning isn’t important to the team – it is very important to the organizational figures whose job depends on success- McKenzie and […]

A preview for Oakland’s November schedule

The Oakland Raiders have had a rough first half to the 2014 season, as they enter November without a win. Obviously avoiding the dreaded 0-16 finish is front and center, but the next month should be used for developing talent and overall assessment.

Raiders vs Texans: What to watch

The Raiders looked nothing like the team they want to be when they took the field last Sunday versus the Jets in New Jersey. The team wants to be a power run team but ran for a measly 1.7 yards per carry on only 15 carries. The team wants to boast a strong defense, but […]

Takeaways: Thoughts on the Raiders 19-14 loss to the Jets

It is a make or break season for Raiders head coach Dennis Allen and his staff, who have gone 4-12 in their first two seasons in Oakland and must show improvement in 2014 to stay. You would think that sort of pressure would make a man edgy, but whatever reason, Allen doesn’t seem worried about […]
