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.

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.

Despite the doom already infecting parts of the Raider Nation after the loss to the Minnesota Vikings, there were a number of players whose performances really stood out on tape in this game, and other trends that were extremely positive.

For years, the Oakland Raiders have had offensive lines that have either been ill suited for the run scheme, a mishmash of underachievers and cast-offs, or simply not all that talented as a whole.

The Oakland Raiders play in their first preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings. This game will largely feature young players as the Raiders will try to make more sense of what their final 53 man roster will look like. Practice only tells one part of the story for these players, but a live game situation against a real opponent should help coaches separate which players are for real and which ones are practice heroes.

Holla At Me Raider Nation!

Something is very different about the Oakland Raiders in 2014. Fans, beat writers and bloggers are seeing something that they haven't seen in at least a decade. Continuity. Dennis Allen is still the head coach and is in his third training camp as the Raiders head coach. Reggie McKenzie is still the Oakland's General Manager. The duo in their first two years have an 8-24 record and perhaps 5 yeears ago they would have been fired, but this is a different era for the Raiders.

Money doesn't buy happiness, but in the NFL it helps you buy wins and that makes owners, coaches, players and fans happy. The Raiders after purging their roster and taking dead money hits the last two years finally had money and now their roster has talent, at least more talent on their roster than they've had in the last two years.
