It seems like just yesterday we all sat down to watch the Reggie McKenzie introduction news conference. Many of us sat there wearing our Carson Palmer, Kamerion Wimbley or Richard Seymour jerseys excited to see what the future brought. Unfortunately, for many fans this change brought roster turnover as we were about to unload many of the players that had been on the roster the previous year. In fact, the Raiders have had a large roster turnover almost every year that McKenzie has been the GM.

The Oakland Raiders worked out former Chargers wide receiver Vincent Brown today and per ESPN Insider Adam Caplan he is signing with the Raiders as he has cancelled his workouts with other teams. This should give Oakland a boost on offense and may help rookie quarterback Derek Carr on offense.

Mark Davis and the Raiders need a new stadium and their search has taken them to San Antonio and Los Angeles while the City of Oakland tries to figure out a way to finance and build a new stadium to keep the Raiders in town.

Oakland has been the home of the Raiders for a long time and in the heart of many it may always be. However, without a new stadium deal for the Raiders they could find themselves with no other choice but to leave home. This is not what Mark Davis wants and it's not what many fans want either, but the city may be leaving them with no choice. The Raiders need a new stadium and what they have now is unacceptable.

The Oakland Raiders coaching search is over. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter the Raiders will officially hire Jack Del Rio. Del Rio will be the second head coach hired by the Mark Davis and Reggie McKenzie regime. Del Rio has a 68-71 record as a head coach and is looking to improve that with the Raiders.

Even at their inception the Oakland Raiders were embroiled in controversy. They weren’t even supposed to exist, but in 1961 the Minneapolis-St. Paul franchise in the AFL bolted to become the Minnesota Vikings, and the AFL badly needed a replacement.

Everyone knows the Raiders need a new stadium and now the right people are starting to address it. Art Rooney the II recently said that "something is going to have to give." in an interview with SiriusX NFL Radio. Mark Davis made headlines when he visited San Antonio and it was a very smart move by Davis. Not only did he send a message to Oakland city officials, but now he has the National Media and other owners talking about the Raiders stadium situation publicly.

Time and chance directs the lives of many of us. I visited a service on Sunday, August 16, 2015 and the entire Prairie View football team was present. The entire football coaching staff was at the service as well.

Going into this season, with a new and experienced Head Coach, hopes are high in the East Bay. Some players are known quantities, but the performance of others is far from a sure thing. It is these players, at key positions, who will determine the success or failure of this team in the coming season.

On Saturday mornings my son and I usually have breakfast at a cafe on Highway 6 in Soutwest Houston. We noticed another Raider fan and said hello. The joy in his face was indicative of his love for the Oakland Raiders. He said he has been a Raider fan his entire life.

The Oakland Raiders defeated the St. Louis Rams in their first game of the preseason on Friday night. Like Ice Cube said, "It was a good day," but a lot of members of the Raider Nation are really wondering, "Are we there yet?" The ONLY Real Nation has been waiting a long time and this game was highly anticipated even though it was a preseason game. Fortunately for the Raiders fans, the team delivered and there is plenty to be excited about.

Reggie Mckenzie has completely transformed the Raiders roster since taking over as the General Manager. There are only 10 players remaining from his original roster that he assembled in his first season as a GM and only one of those players, Marcel Reece, was a starter. Everything is different now and everything looks much more promising than it did in 2012. So what are some the biggest changes? Let's take a look.

I have more than 111,000 emails in my archives. Near 3 am this morning I re-read one written in 2007. It is authored by RC Thomas. I did minimum editing of it so as to retain its power and authenticity. He remembers the great reception on December 6, 1970 and I was also there in Shea Stadium when it happened. More details will be in the book by Peter O'Loughlin (and Damali) entitled Oakland 1970.
