I am a lifelong Raiders fan and I am honored to be a contributor of S&BP as of September 30th, 2012. My father bred me to be a fan of the Silver and Black from birth starting with being named after the great Raiders RB Marcus Allen. Welcome to Silver & Black Pride and I hope you enjoy the site as much as I do!

Reggie McKenzie's value will show this off-season


The impressive part is not taking something apart, it is putting it back together afterwards. This is the off-season that will prove Reggie McKenzie's worth as a GM in the NFL.

To earn fans respect DA must be more personable


Even after 2 years on the job it is hard to really feel like we as fans know Dennis Allen very well. He must become more personable if he wants to win over the Raider Nation.
