Football Is Back: Thoughts on the Silver and Black

Andrew Flores – Aug 13, 2016

Football fans are rejoicing as football is officially back and while preseason is constantly joked about it can be an important time for really gauging a team. With that said here are my thoughts on the Raiders debut.




The Raiders Are Just Better Than the Rest of the AFC West

Elias Trejo – Jul 29, 2016

First off, I just want to say that it feels great to be back from my hiatus. I've been sitting in the rafters watching and waiting like Sting did back in the WCW. It's finally time for me to come down and lay the bat down. All of these positive articles about the Raiders making the playoffs, winning the division, and maybe making a deep run into the playoffs are making me feel like I am reading the Raider Nation Times. It may be the first time everyone agrees on something. The Raiders are just the better team in the AFC West. Here's why. 


Oakland Raiders could shock us all come draft day

Andrew Flores – Apr 25, 2016

The draft is 3 days away and so far this year’s draft has been anything but predictable. Yet with the 14th overall pick the Raiders could very well shock us all. While general manager Reggie McKenzie has always taken the best player available, this draft is different as the Raiders have no obvious needs and could gamble on elite talents with injuries in order to continue building a legitimate contender. Talents like Myles Jack, Jaylon Smith, and Karl Joseph are all likely to slide come draft day, while no one knows how far they will slide. These players are all blue-chip talents, and while they won’t make an instant impact they very well could develop into all-pro talents at their positions. Further the precedent for the Raiders to shock us by going against the grain has already been set, after all Reggie did gamble on D.J. Hayden in 2013 and while that didn’t set the best precedent. This move established that Reggie isn’t afraid to go against the grain, with that said here is my mock draft.
