Greg Papa with the righteous shade at Brent Musburger and ‘hard to listen to’ Raiders radio broadcast

It’s not a stretch to say the Raiders radio broadcast this season has been seriously lacking. This offseason the Raider radio network fired longtime radio voice Greg Papa and dug up 79-year-old former color commentator Brent Musburger to take over in the booth alongside former Raiders tackle Lincoln Kennedy.

It hasn’t been a popular move.

Commentators are often disliked by the viewing/listening public. Being a play-by-play person is not an easy job. But Musburger has drawn considerable...

2018 NFL Week 15 predictions, picks against the spread

Greetings, Raider Nation! It was a wild and crazy Week 14 that saw the Titans blow out the Jaguars, the Chiefs and Chargers not cover the spread, the Raiders upset the Steelers and the Patriots lose in the most satisfying way possible. All this added up to a pretty poor week for the staff pickers, with the best record being 10-6 from Tyler Green and myself having the worst record at 6-10. Here are the spreads for this week:

Chargers at Chiefs -3.5
Texans -6.5 at Jets
Browns at Broncos -3

Raiders vs Bengals fantasy advice: Ground games for the win

Sundays have been a little bit more fun lately. The Oakland Raiders are playing competitive football and are actually producing impressive fantasy numbers at certain positions.

Derek Carr turned in another stud performance with over 300 yards and two touchdowns. He looks like he has turned a corner in Jon Gruden’s offense. If Carr continues his recent play to finish the year, he could become a starting fantasy quarterback once again in 2019.

Jared Cook, Seth Roberts and Jordy Nelson have...

Raiders week 15 Power Rankings round-up: Raiders rise across the board after upset win against Steelers

Imagine that! Beating a playoff caliber team with a winning record has a big effect on the power rankings. That’s been made obvious after every outlet we cover has given the Raiders a higher spot on their power rankings after Oakland’s improbable upset of the Pittsburgh Steelers. There are still a few rankings that have the Raiders nearly at the bottom but overall the win against Pittsburgh has been met with considerable praise across the board.

AJ McCarron helping Derek Carr prepare for Bengals, ‘was throwing against these guys all the time’

On Sunday, the Raiders will head to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals, who have problems of their own to be sure. Their starting quarterback is out for the year, and they have floundered this year en route to a 5-8 record.

But even so, their defense deserves some respect for even getting them this far, and quarterback Derek Carr has turned to his defensive coordinator, former Bengals DC Paul Guenther, and his backup quarterback AJ McCarron for help in preparing for their former team this...

Raiders-Bengals injury report: Gabe Jackson, Kelechi Osemele miss practice

Rodney Hudson is starting to feel mighty lonely. He’s been watching his fellow interior linemen drop like flies of late. First Kelechi Osemele went down for the second time this week, he was replaced by Jon Feliciano who then also got injured, and Gabe Jackson went down as well.

In the Raiders’ first practice in preparation for the Bengals, Feliciano has been placed on injured reserve, and both Kelechi Osemele and Gabe Jackson did not practice.

That puts the Raiders deep into their...

Potential locations for Raiders 2019 home games may have just narrowed considerably

And playing in Oakland is still an option.

It’s been a...let’s just say, newsworthy past few days for the Raiders. A day after the City of Oakland filed a lawsuit against the Raiders, the NFL, and the other 31 teams, owner Mark Davis was in Tempe Arizona at the league’s owner’s meetings.

What everyone would like to know is whether the suit the City filed will mean he takes the Raiders games out of Oakland for the 2019 season; a year early from their previously scheduled departure for...

It was another strong week for the AFC West with both the Chargers and Chiefs continuing their winning ways in their respective match-ups along with the upset win for the Raiders. The lone team to lose this week was the Denver Broncos who were upset by the San Francisco 49ers, a crushing blow to their playoff chances after battling back to .500 last season.

Derek Carr shares heartfelt words with Reggie McKenzie, laments Raiders constant turnover

A lot has changed with the Raiders since Derek Carr joined the team as their second round pick in the 2014 draft. He has been through four head coaches and just as many offensive coordinators. Every single position on the offense has a different player than when he began. Now the man who drafted him is gone too.

“He drafted me. He gave me my chance,” Carr said of Reggie McKenzie who was fired as GM on Monday.

Shortly after Carr heard the news, he reached out to McKenzie and as he...

Hue Jackson is kiss of death for teams he has coached and Raiders about to face him for 2nd time this season

Jackson’s record as a coach is breathtaking.

There was a time when Hue Jackson was the young, up and coming genius head coach in waiting. Al Davis brought him in as the Raiders offensive coordinator in 2010 under then head coach Tom Cable will designs on handing over the head job to Jackson the following season.

Just four games into his season as head coach, Al Davis died. The game in Houston which was won on the final play is etched in our memories. Hue Jackson, overtaken by the emotion...
