Raider Owner: Mark Davis

Mark Davis has a good heart, and he’s smarter than people might give him credit for,” says a source who requested anonymity to protect business relationships. “But imagine if you were 56 or 57 years old and never had a job. And then you wake up one morning and you’re running a billion-dollar company.”

“MOST DAYS START the same — behind the wheel of a white 1997 Dodge Caravan SE outfitted with a bubble-top Mark III conversion kit, a VHS player mounted to the roof inside and a r8hers personalized plate. Mark Davis pilots this machine from his East Bay home to the nearest P.F. Chang’s, where he sits at the left end of the bar, same spot every time, puts his white fanny pack on the counter, orders an iced tea and unfolds the day’s newspapers. Beside him on the bar, next to the papers, is his 2003 Nokia push-button phone with full texting capability. When someone calls and asks him where he is, he says, “I’m in my office,” and sends a knowing nod to the bartenders. It gets ’em every time.”


Raider Head Coach: Jack Del Rio

We need somebody to get our guys ready for this donk game next week. Somebody who knows their defensive unit inside and out, every player’s pros and cons.  Some guy who has practiced against manning and the offense hundreds of times over years, analyzing their slightest tendencies. Who can read them like a book and put our team in position to take advantage. Any suggestions?

The Raiders have figured out how to use Khalil Mack #52, and it’s terrifying

“McCown was looking at the other side of the field, going through his progressions, when he felt Khalil Mack #52 coming at the last minute, but he couldn’t climb the pocket quick enough to get away this time. Not only did Khalil Mack get his second sack of the season a mere eight plays after his first, he also stuck his hand in there and forced McCown to fumble. ” –SB Nation
