Our Raiders Blog has a new home

Our Oakland Raiders blog has a new home. We are excited to officially merge with Team-Superstore.com today. Click here for our new Raiders Blog Home Page.

The good news for the Raiders: they might have the first pick in next year’s draft. The bad news for the Raiders: that means they will be in contention for the worst record in the NFL this season. Coming off a 4-12 season, the Raiders loss Darrius Heyward-Bey, Michael Huff, Tommy Kelly, Philip Wheeler, Desmond Bryant and Richard Seymour. They also swapped quarterback Carson Palmer with Matt Flynn, which may very well result in a downgrade. The Raiders only hope is that Darren McFadden stays healthy and has a monster season. Don’t count on the Raiders having any success this season as they have a long road back towards playoff contention.

The Raaaaiiiiiiiida's!!!! Oy vay.

Here’s some fun facts pertaining to how bad the Raiders were last year, particularly on offense: they were second to last in total yards and points per game. JeMarcus Russell, Bruce Gradkowski, and Charlie Frye combined to throw for a measly 10 total touchdowns. Justin Fargas, Darren McFadden, and Michael Bush had a total of seven rushing touchdowns, tallying a total of 17 offensive touchdowns. Drew Brees had 34 passing touchdowns alone.

This pattern of suckiness is the norm for the Raiders these days. Jason Campbell will take the reigns now, but he injured himself in pre-season action. Zach Miller is the number one passing threat at tight end. Their number one receiver is Darrius Heyward-Bey. Their best defensive player is Nnamdi Asomuwhatnow?

The Raiders’ reign of dreadfulness will continue this year. Long suffering Raiders fans will still be dreaming of better days where the hot dog eating, “he put some mustard on that one” John Madden led their team to glory. There’s just not much to get excited about here folks. It was really tough. Believe me, I tried. They will finish last in the AFC West at 2-14.

Former No. 1 pick Russell released

The Oakland Raiders released former No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell on Thursday, ending a three-year tenure marked by his high salary and unproductive play on the field.

Senior executive John Herrera told The Associated Press about the move and said that “we wish him well.”

The decision came less than two weeks after Oakland acquired Jason Campbell from Washington to take over at quarterback and signifies that owner Al Davis finally lost patience with the immensely talented but unproductive player he drafted first overall in 2007 against the wishes of former coach Lane Kiffin.

Russell will now likely be considered one of the biggest draft busts in NFL history, joining Ryan Leaf, Ki-Jana Carter, Akili Smith and others on that list. He will have been paid more than $39 million by the Raiders, while producing only seven wins as a starter.

Al Davis Has Oakland Raiders In Downward Spiral

The plight of the Raiders was discussed in a recent conversation with one of the team’s former stars. Slinging theories is popular among the distinguished alumni, nearly all of whom have one.

But I’d never heard anyone express his so bluntly.

“I hate to say it, because the old man is a legend,” the former player said. “But I think we’re going to be like this as long as he’s around to run things. And I really don’t see him giving that up.”

The conventional thinking is that Al Davis never will sell the Raiders, for they are his life’s passion. That’s the feeling among ex-players, former employees and the broad variety of people who make up the fan base.

Indeed, thousands of fans came together to raise enough cash for a billboard advertisement that went up Tuesday, visible from northbound I-880 above High Street, about a mile south of the Oakland Coliseum. It depicts a Lombardi Trophy — and a plea for the 80-year-old owner and general manager to hire an actual GM.

Cable looking for electricity

Coach Tom Cable has been pointing to the Raiders getting healthy as a reason for optimism of late but the only long-shelved players who have a chance to play Sunday are left guard Robert Gallery, who suffered a broken left fibula in Week 2 at Kansas City, and receiver Chaz Schilens, who broke his left foot in a non-contact training camp drill on Aug. 18.

According to Cable, Gallery participated in warm-ups and drills on Wednesda and got in a “few reps in team periods” while Schilens did not practice. Strange, considering the team announced his return last Tuesday and he was actually inactive Sunday due to soreness in the foot.

A more likely return game for the duo would be Nov. 15, after the bye, when the Raiders play host to the Kansas City Chiefs.

There’s still hope yet for Raiders fans

How about them Raiders?


OK, calm down Raider Fan, one win doesn’t make a trend.

And two wins certainly don’t make a season, unless of course your team is the one that does actually reside in Oakland.

I kid. I kid.

Apparently the silver-and-black had a quite a surprise outing Sunday, shocking a strong Philadelphia squad by a 13-9 count. Of course, I didn’t get to see the game because not enough Raider fans bought tickets, which resulted in a TV blackout.
