Raider Nation Saturday: Oakland Raiders Making the Playoffs and Other Good Reads

Elias Trejo – Oct 3, 2015

Back in 2011 when we launched this site we were tired of the lack and type of coverage the Raiders were receiving in the National Media. Everything was negative and it was well deserved because our team wasn't playing very well. After about 10 years of negativity I wanted to create a place where the Raider Nation could come and enjoy reading what's being said about the Raiders. 


Derek Carr Most Likely to PLAY in Week 2 for the Raiders

Elias Trejo – Sep 14, 2015

The Raiders losses continue to mount up after only one week of football. Derek Carr is likely to miss next week's game agains the Ravens according to multiple reports. The 2nd year quarterback injured his hand when he was trying to stiff arm Adam Jones. Jones should have been ejected from the game a few plays earlier for grabbing slamming Amari Cooper's helmet less head onto his own helmet. 

Report: Raiders Fear Torn ACL for Safety Nate Allen

Elias Trejo – Sep 14, 2015

According to Adam Schefter the Raiders fear safety Nate Allen has suffered a torn ACL. Allen was hurt during the first half of the Raiders and never returned. Allen was one of Reggie McKenzie's key free agent signings this offseason as he was brought in to help the secondary improve. With Allen out for the season and possibly Charles Woodson out for the near future the Raiders issues in the secondary just got worse. Kam Chancellor anyone?

Don't Sweat it Raider Nation, It's Safe to Buy a Raiders Jersey Again

Elias Trejo – Jul 8, 2015

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.

Thoughts and Fun Facts About the Raiders 2-1 Start

Elias Trejo – Sep 29, 2015

The Oakland Raiders have a winning record three weeks into the 2015 NFL Season. Yes, you read that correctly. The Raiders have won more games than they have lost. While it may be early in the season things look very promising for this young team. When you stop and think about it, it's actually amazing just how young this team is. 

Raiders Continue Resurgence With Road Win In Cleveland.

Terrell White – Sep 29, 2015

Holla At Me Raider Nation! Well, I don't know about anyone else - but I could get used to this! Once again, it's been a great couple of days! Last Sunday, the Raiders wiped out memories of their opening day loss, with a home win against the Ravens. This past Sunday the Raiders silenced their critics, with a road win in Cleveland against the Browns. Now if your a fan/fanatic of this team then you've heard it all before; "The Raiders lost last season in Cleveland." "The Raiders haven't won a road game since 2013." The Raiders haven't won back to back games since 2012." Well as I said - This past Sunday our Oakland Raiders told their haters to SHUT-UP! No longer (at least for another week - lol) will we here in Raider Nation have to hear about how the Raiders can't win on the road! What was beautiful about this game was not just the fact that the Raiders won the game, but the way in which they won the game. Raiders On O.

NFL Week 4 Picks: Raiders Going for 3 in a Row and our Upset of the Week

Elias Trejo – Oct 1, 2015

The Oakland Raiders have won two games in a row and are looking to win three games in a row for the first time since I don't even remember at this point to be honest. Hard for a team to win three games in a row when they can barely win three games in a season. This year's team is different, however. 

NFL Week 3 Picks: Can Raiders Get a Win in Cleveland and other NFL Picks

Elias Trejo – Sep 24, 2015

Last week was brutal for me as I went 6-10 with my picks which brought me to a 15-15 record for my picks since week 2. I picked the Raiders to lose since everytime I pick them to win they lose and of course, they won last week. So, in order to keep things consistent I am picking the Raiders to lose again this week and I'm keeping the magic Miley Cyrus profile picture on my Twitter account until we lose a game or the bye week.
