Jon Gruden Hiring Gives the Raiders the Identity They Have Been Searching for Since He Left, but Doesn’t Guarantee Success

This current Raiders squad has a ton of talent and the ability to be one of the top teams in the league. They have their franchise quarterback locked up for quite a while, two receivers with explosive potential, a hard nosed running back signed for another year if they want him, and a defense that has the talent to compete with the best offenses in the league.

You must draft the talent and re-sign that talent. In addition, with

What is Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr worth? The best of a weak quarterback class of 2014 (the same one that includes Blake Bortles and Jimmy Garoppolo) could become the first $25 million signal caller in the NFL. The funny thing about that becoming a reality is neither the Oakland Raiders or Carr and his agent appear to be worried that a deal won’t get done. Carr has been everything

Oakland Raiders: Three Questions Heading into Training Camp

Yes, I understand that injuries are a part of the game. However, losing your top two QBs going into the playoffs is a major stinger. How do the Raiders rebound in 2017? Here are three

NFL: Houston Texans, Oakland Raiders will be roadblocks for the New England Patriots in the 2017 season

We are still a few months away from the start of the 2017 NFL season. For the better part of 15 years, we have seen the New England Patriots pretty much dominate the AFC. In fact, they have been superior to the other AFC teams. However, I see that trend stopping in 2017. While I would be very surprised to see New England not win the AFC, I do not

Opinion: Why The Ken Stabler Pro Football Hall of Fame Debate Rages On

From 1968 to 1975, the Oakland Raiders played in six A.F.L./A.F.C. title games and lost each one of them to the eventual Super Bowl champion. In 1976, they finally beat the arch-nemesis Pittsburgh Steelers to advance to Super Bowl 11. Then, against Minnesota two weeks later, with the clock winding down and victory assured, a relieved John Madden shook hands and embraced his quarterback, Ken Stabler. After just four years
