A Game From Raiders History: September 11, 1960

Much has been written over the last five-plus decades about the most memorable games in Raiders history -- Ghost to the Post, the Holy Roller, Super Bowl XI, etc. -- but for the first entry in what...

Why the Saffold Debacle Spells Disaster in Oakland

We may never fully know what went down in Oakland yesterday that led to the Raiders pulling the plug on the Rodger Saffold signing, but in my mind there's not one possible scenario that is good for...

Lamonica and Wells on the sideline, 1964.

Gotta love all the Stickum on Wells' and Freddie B's socks.

Oakland Raiders 2013 Review: The Quarterbacks

Now that the season is over and my weekly stats reviews are on hold, I thought it was time to take a look back at the entire season from a statistical standpoint. I'm going to try to be objective...

Raiders career leader update, week 17

And so the curtain falls on another brutal season of Raiders football. As much as I'd like to forget about the last four months, I still have more work to do. I'll be taking a look at the 2013...

Raiders career leader update, week 16

Once the regular season is over, I plan on posting some statistical capsules for some Raiders who may be back next year and some who won't. I hope people here find that kind of stuff to be of...

Raiders career leader update, week 15

Another December Raiders game, another lump of coal in our stockings. Or is that a dried turd? It's so hard to tell these days. Nevertheless, time to see where the statistical leaders from...

This should end the Chucky talk for at least another year

Gruden will remain with ESPN through at least the 2014 season, the former Super Bowl-winning coach has confirmed. "I'm just trying to do my job," Gruden said. "I'm not going to address every little rumor or supposed conversation that takes place, according to these so-called sources. "There are a lot of good coaches out there available to coach these teams. I'm just hoping ESPN likes the the job I'm doing. That's my focus."

Raiders career leader update, week 14

I used to think that I got depressed at this time of year because of the typical holiday blues. I'm pretty certain now that it's because of the sorry state of the Raiders. Nevertheless, it's time...

I am officially off the Dennis Allen bandwagon

Look, I'm all in favor of being patient and not pulling the trigger too quickly. I also understand that playing musical chairs with head coaches is a great way to fail. But enough is enough....

Raiders career leader update, week 13

Another week, another crushing collapse by my beloved Raiders. Oh well, life goes on I suppose. And so does my weekly look at how the week's statistical leaders stack up on Oakland's seasonal and...

Raiders career leader update, week 12

Oh well, two wins in a row would've been nice, but that's not to be this year apparently. Anyway, another Oakland game is in the books so it's time to see how the game leaders against the Titans...

Raiders career leader update, week 11

In posting their first November win since a week 12 home game against the Bears in 2011, Oakland put together a solid game against a reeling Texans squad. Let's see how the team leaders for the...

Raiders career leader update, week 10

Even if you suck at math, it shouldn't be too hard to take my posted totals from last week and just add the pitiful totals from yesterday's loss to the Giants. Nevertheless, I'll do it anyway. All...

Raiders career leader update, week 9

Here are how some current Raiders now stack up on the team's all-time stat lists after week 9. If this interests anyone else I can do more in later weeks. Or I'll just do it anyway if I'm bored. A...

QB stat probably only I care about

+

If TP has even an OK day against the Eagles this weekend, he will move past Daunte Culpepper and Todd Marinovich to become Oakland's 21st most prolific QB ever. I figure he should easily pass the illustrious Donald Hollas and Andrew Walter later in the year.

Should the Raiders Start Honoring Former Players More?

As any Raider fan can tell you, one of the late Al Davis's many quirks as owner was his stout refusal to do a whole lot in terms of publicly honoring former players. I'm talking about retiring...

How's this for a bargain?

With none other than Art Shell and John Vella on either side. Great stuff.
