The Best Play Nobody Noticed in 2011 featuring Tyvon Branch


I was actually watching the highlights to the week three game versus the Jets from last season and was amazed that Branch came out of nowhere to put a big lick on LT. This is a great breakdown of that play and why I'm excited this guy will be with us for a while to come. Here is the link from Pro Football Focus: http://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2012/07/11/analysis-notebook-the-best-play-nobody-noticed-in-2011/

Three Years of Yards Per Route Run: Running Backs (McFadden is tops per route)


Very interesting article on pass catching RBs in the league over the last 3 years. McFadden is #1 in yards per route. If he were healthy more often then he'd more than likely be in the top 5 for yards as well. Interesting as well to see Benson as the worst RB in terms of yards per route.

Jaws: Carson Palmer is 21st-best QB


Pretty lame that he ranks just above Matt Cassell but let them doubt us.

Average Depth of Target - Pro Football Focus


Interesting article around a different kind of metric to measure WRs and QBs. You will notice that the top 10 in both positions have some familiar faces and really attests to our vertical game.

Raiders add Tice and Mornhinweg to coaching candidates

Reggie McKenzie said at his press conference that he wanted to bring in "his guy" but with the way this "short list" is growing...he seems to know a lot of guys. I applaud McKenzie for looking...


Raiders lose...there IS reason to panic

Yesterday is another game that is beginning an alarming trend...we are a .500 team...no more...no less. To go along with winning half our games this season...we only play for the first half of...


Cable vs. Jackson

I happen to catch this on CNNSI today from Don Banks Snap Judgements and thought this was a little foolish to be revisiting this topic again at this point If I've heard a common theme about...


Behind the Hue ball - Hue Jackson interview

Thought we'd all like to finally hear from our new OC...it's not much but I like what I hear about the multiple formations. On the No. 2 quarterback job: "Well that's yet to be determined....


McFadden available?

  Saw this on PFT today... ESPN's Chris Mortensen this morning mentioned Oakland's Darren McFadden as a veteran player that may surprisingly be available during the draft.  Mort has close ties to...


What pick at No. 8 would surprise you?

This is my first fanpost so be gentle.... As evidenced from last year's DHB pick, there is a strong possibility the Raiders are looking at guys we don't really have on our radar. With the amount...
