Eight and Eight Doesn’t Beat Seven and Nine
Note: This article was written prior to the news about Tom Cable being fired. Al Davis must think he’s living in the Twilight Zone. In what world does it makes sense that the Oakland Raiders can sweep all of their AFC West opponents, yet not land the Division Champions...

What ever happened to Jerry Porter?
This may sound crazy but I think we should get Jerry Porter out of the gutter and give him a chance to give the Raiders depth . He could also be a veteran presence and mentor for the extremely young wide receivers. I personally think he could still be a really good pl...

Cable Doing Everything Right To Keep His Job?

What Will It Take to Believe?
When the Oakland Raiders first picked up journeyman quarterback Bruce Gradkowski, his arrival was met with little fanfare and maybe even a few yawns. While Bruce himself, and maybe a few members of the Raider staff, believed in his ability not many others did. That is,...

Who’s Going Down With the Ship?
Oakland Raider Head Coach Tom Cable landed the job on the basis of his ability to coach offensive lineman, turning mediocre to good and good to great. So, when he decided Mario Henderson was the man for the most important job on the offensive line it’s a good bet that A...

Kick ‘em When They’re Down
One of the absolutes in professional sports is this: the better you are the more some people will hate you. Take the Los Angeles Clippers for instance. How many people, outside of Southern California really have an intense hatred for the Clippers? Now, flip that and loo...
