All season our website has been playing against other NFL websites in a Fantasy Football League sponsored by Crown Royal. We were fortunate enough to make the playoffs despite the fact that we started out the season with Darren McFadden, Ray Rice and Terrelle Pryor in our starting line up. A few trades later and several lucky games during the season Raider Nation Times is in the hunt for a title. Unfortunately we are the lowest scoring playoff team in the playoffs and we are playing against the highest scoring playoff team in the first round.

KRON-4 online is reporting that former Oakland Raiders' linebacker Thomas Howard was killed in a double-fatal auto accident today. Howard was just 30 years old.

There has been much optimism at Oakland Raiders' practices lately as several key players have returned to practice. Unfortunately, several others have been missing as well.

ESPN SportsCenter is reporting from their Twitter page that five-time Pro Bowler, two-time Super Bowl champion, and Oakland Raider great tight end Todd Christensen has passed away at the age of 57.

After an narrow victory over the Texans in Houston, the Oakland Raiders return home to take on the Tennessee Titans in Week-12 of the 2013 NFL Season.

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.

As the Oakland Raiders prepare to fly east and play against the New York Giants, their official, league-madated injury report was filed earlier today. The list is much longer, and far less optimistic than many had hoped.

With the pre draft evaluation process well under way, and the Combine in full swing, Raider fans everywhere are considering who their team should or shouldn’t draft between the 8th & 10th of May.
David Wilson – Feb 19, 2014
The Oakland Raiders need one thing from the overall number five pick. They need a player who is a difference maker on whichever side of the ball. Oakland has plenty of holes on this roster, which means they can take the best player available at whatever position. For every cloud there is a silver lining.
David Wilson – Mar 4, 2014
With the franchise tag deadline now past, Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie has elected not to tag either Jared Veldheer or Lamarr Houston. Time will tell if he made the right call.
David Wilson – Feb 13, 2014
The only good thing about the off season is that every team has hope for next year. Free agency and the draft can go a long way in turning a franchise around in one off season (as long as you aren’t in salary cap jail like the last two years for Oakland).
David Wilson – Feb 7, 2014
Every year, teams that failed to make the playoffs look at the team that won the Superbowl, and ask what lessons they can learn from them. This year is no different, there being are some very good lessons to learn from this game, and from the Seattle Seahawks.

The Raiders are heading into the 2014 season with over $60 million in cap space, a top five pick and many needs on their roster. One of the biggest question marks for the Raiders is what will they do at the quarterback position? Based on their actions in 2013, it doesn't seem like they believe they have the quarterback of the future on the roster right now. So it's time to go look for one this offseason. Many are looking for the Raiders to draft their quarterback of the future, and I'm all for it if they right guy is there, but they can't go into the draft without a proven veteran quarterback, unless they are comfortable with a Matt McGloin vs Terrelle Pryor vs Trent Edwards camp in 2014. I'm sure the Raiders have some quarterback prospects circled, but they don't know how the draft will fall and if those guys will be there when they pick. They also can't afford to reach for a quarterback just because they need one. So what should they do? They should sign Mike Vick.

There are people out there who believe Dennis Allen does not want Terrelle Pryor to be his quarterback. Some have gone as far as calling Allen a racist because he doesn't want Pryor to be his starter. I personally think these accusations and assumptions are false, out of line, and terribly wrong. Allen's preference is a quarterback that can make plays with his arm and lead the team to more victories. He doesn't care about the color or style of his quarterback as long as he is able to make the simple reads and not make mistakes.
Has Raider Management Failed The Nation, With Their Usage and Treatment Of Quarterback Terrelle Pryor?

Holla At Me Raider Nation!
Captain Jack Rack Levy – Jan 7, 2014
Wow, it’s getting downright Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugly here on the decks of the Galleon; you’d think a wondering Donkey, Bolt or Cheat had crossed the quarterdeck, flipped off the ensign AND the officer of the deck, then turned ‘round and dropped trou’ exposing his lily-white girly-man butt-cheeks.

I've spent a couple of weeks reviewing the 2013 Oakland Raiders season. I'll also be reviewing the season, keeping in mind that the plan was to deconstruct the team the last two years vs try to put a team together to win games and make the playoffs. That alone makes it hard for me to justify firing anyone at the end of the season. However, I will be honest with my grading and evaluation.
