Pretty cool MJD article I found that I've not seen posted/referred to here on S&BP

I (obviously) recommend everybody check it out. "I'm in the best shape of my life now, running fast, running hills, pulling sleds, cutting, jumping," he said. "I've rededicated myself to my...

Some things go our way this Weekend, we're right back in the playoff hunt ...

Posted some of this on another thread, but since I made a fanpost last week on the subject of playoffs, I figured I'd make an 'update' in the FP section. Here's where we're at: 1) If we WIN this...

Raiders Playoff Scenario, and Who to Root For This Weekend ...

As some of you may recall in 2011 I kept everyone informed with lengthy posts and in-depth probabilities re: the Raiders playoff hopes as we went down the stretch in the season, listing who to root...

That game was EXACTLY what I was afraid of ...

Earlier in the week, I posted these very words: Ya know I started out this week feeling a lock on the Raiders winning, but I’ve been losing some faith as it goes by. Foles is actually played...

My thoughts on our present QB situation ...

There's a few things I wanna say about McGloin first ...I remember a very similar start to a particular QB's career, both in training camp, and in his first few PS games. I swear to dog, I was at...

So, I'm 'marrying' a former Raiderette - Ms. Bianca LaRussa

Yeah, I know I'm shamelessly name-dropping and everything, and I know this is only a tangentially-related to the Raiders kinda thing, but I figure, hey, y'all are my homies, and a lot of peeps are...

My Thoughts on what Big Reg is All About, and on Giving FA Vets like Flynn 'their shot'

Now, although we've had success with Free-Agent Veteran QB's, like our new boy Flynn ... Lamonica, Plunkett, and Gannon, of course being the notable examples ... unfortunately, the opposite has...

Raider Nation "Playoff Game Thread"

So, I don't see any 'game threads' on the Home Page, and I figure everyone's watching the games ... so I thought I'd start a thread for everyone to discuss what's going on in the games this...

This is mostly Al's fault & I kinda wish the Raiders would just lose out ... and other observations ...

That's right, I kinda wish the Raiders would just lose out. Esp. given the way the Colt’s ‘Suck for Luck’ campaign seems to have worked out rather well for them. Unfortunately, tempering this...

I'm shocked nobody's started a thread regarding bringing back Stanford Routt ...

Apologize if they did, but I haven't seen mention of it this week on the Fan Posts or Home Page, so I'ma bring it up now. Now ... a guy getting cut like he did, 8 weeks into a 3-year, $18 million...

Have we lost too many good players, or is that BS?

Thought I'd provide a distraction from the debacle we just witnessed with a little bit of good news :) Two years ago in the 2012 season, our Raiders went 8-8. This year, the prevailing wisdom says...

Been noticing some wild talk lately about trading Shane Lechler, and I just wanted to roll my eyes, spit on the ground, and deride these people as nothing but packs of crazy fools...

My Opinion on The Raiders Positions of Greatest Need at present ...

I've compiled a list of the positions that I believe the Raiders should look at shoring up via either FA, or the waiver-wire, once the the roster cuts begin here in the next week. I've placed...

Congrats to Smith and the 49er's & GO PATS!!!

Wow. What an amazing finish to a game. When the Saints got that last TD I though there's no way Smith and that SF offense are gonna get it done. They sure proved me wrong. Normally I greatly...

Yeah ... Bye-Bye, Panda ... (oops ... story since denied by Herrera)

Edit: Okay, so MAYBE Chuck Bresnahan is fired ... It's been real. Kinda sad to see Biekert and R. Woodson go as well, they were great Raiders, and they'll always have a place in our hearts. But...

Chuck Bresnahan Must Go

Seriously. The whole season ON THE LINE, AT HOME, and this fucking defense just LAYS DOWN, and lets San Diego march 99.9 yards for the game sealing touchdown? Are YOU F***ING KIDDING ME RIGHT...

Three lousy plays makes ALL the difference in a season ...

Palmers pick, followed by the defense giving up a 60yd TD run to Moreno, and a punt return for a TD by Decker. Take away those three lousy plays, one by each of our teams, and you know what...

The Loss to Detroit is on HUE JACKSON ...

Brett's PO Odds Breakdown aka "Could we at least play a meaningful game in Week 17?"

I dunno about y’all, but for me, at this point, I’m just hoping that our week 17 game against SD ‘counts’, i.e. winning that game gives us a CHANCE of making the PO’s. It’s been so long since we...

Okay, that game featured some of the strangest, and worst, officiating EVER
