Warren with another big game: ‘I’m showing that I’m capable’ but still room for improvement

Normally in the second preseason game, the reserves see a bit less work than they did in the first preseason game. Not in this case. The Raiders were sitting out their starters, so the second preseason game became another chance for the backups to prove themselves.

Chris Warren has been proving himself since the beginning of his time in Oakland. He wasn’t a priority free agent, he had to try out. He proved he was worthy of being signed. Then he proved himself worthy of a shot in the game...

Long time Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson amazed at Raider Nation turnout in Los Angeles

For his entire 13-year career, Derrick Johnson has played just for the Chiefs. He knows the Chiefs fans pack Arrowhead for every home game and give the Chiefs a great home field advantage. Now he’s seeing how the other half lives. He’s seeing that Raider Nation isn’t confined to Oakland.

Today, they showed the Raider Nation presence in Los Angeles is significant and it took the former Chief aback, according to teammate James Cowser.

“Derrick Johnson was like ‘can you believe how...

Raiders vs Rams recap: Big Raider Nation turnout watches Warren carry the load, QB’s drop one

Today was the day a lot of Raiders fans in LA have waited 24 years for. The return of the Raider to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The parking lot was filled with Raiders tailgates and the stands were mostly black with a peppering of Rams faithful.

This one meant more than just a preseason game to these Raiders fans. And good thing it did, because they didn’t get much quality football on this day.

The Raiders sat 28 players, including their entire first team offense for the game, as...

Rams vs. Raiders: 4 Winners, 4 Losers

The Raiders’ preseason Week 2 is in the books, and the Raiders lost a game 19-15 that they didn’t care to win and probably didn’t care to play in at all. With the Rams on the schedule in Week 1, the Raiders played it close to the vest, showing off their younger players but none of their playbook.

But who came out on top, and who was a total flop?


1) Chris Warren III

What a game from the young man out of Texas. The last time a Raider wore the number 34 in the LA Coliseum, it was...

Raiders vs. Rams second half open thread

That first half was not quite as exciting as last week’s against the Lions. The Raiders and Rams aren’t playing very many starters, and as such the quality of this game is in the toilet. The Rams lead at halftime, 13-0.

Connor Cook has looked absolutely dreadful against the Rams, going 4/7 for 15 yards and a fumble. EJ Manuel replaced him in the second quarter and has gone 4/5 for 39 yards. Both QBs have been sacked once. Chris Warren III has rushed 5 times for 19 yards and has looked...

Raiders sit entire starting offense, most of the defense but Gareon Conley, Arden Key a go vs Rams

Not a lot of high caliber talent on the field for the Raiders today, but a couple of highly anticipated returns to the field.

What do you get when you pit two teams against each other in the preseason who will face each other in less than a month? You get a lot of backups, apparently.

This week Jon Gruden was lamenting having to play the Rams twice in a month’s time. His answer is to throw the scout team at them.

By my count, the Raiders are sitting 28 of their 90-man roster today. A few...

2018 NFL Preseason Week 2 Raiders vs. Rams game time open thread

Are you ready for some Raider football? The Silver and Black will be playing what amounts to a home game in Los Angeles today against the Rams, who are one of the favorites to reach the Super Bowl out of the NFC. This is the first of two meetings the Raiders will have with the Rams over the next month, as the two teams open the season in Oakland on Monday Night Football.

The starters for the Raiders only played one series against the Lions last week, but should get some more time tonight....

NFL Preseason Week 2 Saturday games open thread

Greetings, Raider Nation! Today is another exciting day of NFL Preseason football, punctuated by the Raiders vs. Rams at the LA Coliseum. This may be the very last time the Raiders ever play in that historic venue.

But first, there are other games to get to starting with the Jaguars at the Vikings. Both of those teams lost their respective conference championship games and will be looking to reach the Super Bowl this season. That game begins at 10 a.m. Pacific on the NFL Network.

Watch: David Amerson gets roasted by Falcons rookie WR Calvin Ridley

Not to rub salt in anyone’s wounds here, but he is a rival now, so...

This offseason, the Raiders changed out their cornerbacks. They cut Sean Smith and David Amerson, and signed Rashaan Melvin and Daryl Worley. While Smith has spent the past five months in jail — getting out last week — Amerson was signed by the division rival Chiefs.

Well, the Chiefs are playing the Falcons in their second preseason game tonight in Atlanta, and Amerson just got burnt badly by Falcons rookie wide...

Look for the Browns to do the same to Josh Allen tonight and for the Bills to put pressure on Baker Mayfield when the two teams face off on the NFL Network at 4:30 PM Pacific. The number one overall pick...

Long time Raiders announcer Greg Papa takes job with San Francisco 49ers

It was a hard thing to see Greg Papa unceromiously disposed of earlier this summer, he has been a staple in Oakland and his call of “Touchdown RAAAAIIIIIDDDEERRRS” is legendary. For 20 years Papa’s announcing has been synonymous with Oakland, it’s a shame to see him go even before the team has left for Nevada.

It would have been a lot less dramatic and made a whole lot more sense if Mark Davis and the Raiders would have at least let Greg Papa stay calling the team’s games until...

Five things to watch for in Raiders second preseason game vs Rams

The second preseason game for the Raiders is coming up. The Raiders head to Los Angeles to face the Rams for this one, where there will be a lot of storylines for a second preseason contest.

Here’s what to watch for:

1. Silver & Blackout

If you thought the Raiders fans took the Chargers’ homefield advantage away, wait until you see what they do Saturday. Southern California, and LA in particular is a Raider Nation stronghold. And the game is being played at LA Memorial Coliseum where the...

Chris Warren rushing performance didn’t just come out of nowhere

The story of undrafted free agent running back Chris Warren

How does a football player come out of nowhere undrafted and ball in the NFL? The main reason is the draft is an inexact science that uses a player’s past to predict his future. His NFL Scouting Combine performance has a little something to do with it too. The size of the school he’s coming from and off-the-field life will also weigh in heavy.

It doesn’t take athletes in their early 20s long to get stronger and faster and...

Hall of Fame Senior committee nominates Chiefs S Johnny Robinson while Tom Flores and Cliff Branch still wait

The 2-time Super Bowl winning head coach doesn’t get nod from senior committee in his first year of eligibility and neither does his 3-time Super Bowl winning receiver.

I suppose the Pro Football Hall of Fame Senior committee can’t step in and save the day for a long snubbed Raiders player every year. They did so with regard to Ray Guy in 2014 and then Ken Stabler in 2016. But not so for the 2019 class. Their lone nominee — who almost always gets in — is Chiefs safety Johnny...

Raiders return to old home LA Coliseum for first time in 24 years

December 24, 1994. Christmas Eve. The Raiders would walk off the field at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum after a 19-9 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. They fell to 9-7 and missed the playoffs, making it the last time they played on that field. That was nearly 24 years ago.

This Saturday, the Raiders will step on the field at LA Memorial Coliseum to face the Rams, taking a trip back in time to when they were once the home team on that field.

For 13 years from 1982 to 1994 LA Memorial Coliseum...

With ten years experience in not only the NFL but the Green Bay Packers organization, Jordy Nelson has entered a new environment and a competitive situation in Oakland. He recently got a chance to sit down with SiriusXM’s Pat Kerwin and Jim Miller, to talk about training camp and life as a Raider.

“This is a very competitive camp, we’re 8 deep or so that are competing for obvious spots and playing time. Not only spots on the roster but guys are competing for playing time once you make...

No movement on talks between Khalil Mack, Raiders

The Raiders’ situation with Khalil Mack continues to feature no movement. There is no end in sight, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets, adding the 2016 defensive player of the year will not report in time for Oakland’s second preseason game. Reggie McKenzie previously said he does not expect the superstar defensive end to show up without an extension, so this isn’t unexpected. Mack will incur a fine of $814K by not being with the Raiders for their second preseason tilt, bringing his...
