About theoaklandraiders

Oakland Raiders fan since mid 2009, when I noticed the Raiders on TV during a visit to my wife's family in Ohio. By the end of the game versus the Bengals I had become a fanatical fan and haven't missed a game since...

Raider Offensive Guard Austin Howard #77

Injury of the week is Guard Austin Howard #77.

The Raiders are currently ranked #1 in sacks allowed, surrendering only 5 in 6 games.


Raider Quarterback: Rookie Derek Carr #4

“In six starts Derek Carr #4 has completed 60.5% of his passes for 1,189 yards with eight touchdowns and five interceptions.”


Raider Linebacker: Khalil Mack #52

Khalil Mack #52

“No player has better abilities to get off blocks than Mack. He is virtually unblockable. The result is run stuff after run stuff. He led the team with 11 tackles (10 solo). Think what this defense could do if Mack had a little help. “


Week 7: We Suck

“Every week, it’s the same thing,” safety Charles Woodson #24 said, after making his 58th career interception. “You’ve got to come in tomorrow, you’ve got to look at the film and just try to figure out why we did what we did wrong and try to get better.”

They’re 0-6 for the first time in 52 years.


Week 6: Rookie On Fire

Derek Carr #4 Week Six: The rookie quarterback threw for 4 touchdowns and 1 interception as well as throwing for 282 yards with a passer rating of 107.7 in a loss to the hated Chargers. All with 5 major drops in the first half and at least 5 more minor ones. Raiders receivers are an absolute disgrace. But it was SeaBass missed field goal that cost us the game.


Mark’s Master Plan

Let’s Go Mark! #NFCW4L

Raider Owner Mark Davis is taking us to Los Angeles, even if we have to leave the AFC West far behind. Good riddance to those villians! They’ve been holding us back for years now, we need a NEW division with bigger opportunities. After running the AFCW for 50+ years, it’s time for Raider fans to move on to new territory and new glory in the NFC West. See ya bums, we’re outta here!


Raider Running Back: Maurice Jones-Drew #21

Raiders are currently dead last in the league in rushing yards per game (61.5) despite that area being an emphasis this off-season.
