Oakland Raiders Keys to Success: How to Beat the New York Jets

Andrew Flores – Oct 29, 2015

It is week 8 and the Oakland Raiders are having quite the season. Some may not regard a 3-3 record as impressive; it is impressive when you really analyze this team. The Raiders have one of the youngest teams in the NFL, and yet at 3-3 they have a legitimate shot at making the playoffs this season under first year head coach Jack Del Rio. Although we have seen growing pains the Raiders are playing with some serious passion and are flourishing under some solid leadership, something that was not present in the Dennis Allen tenure. As many have alluded to this week’s game against the Jets will be pivotal for the Raiders.  While it is still relatively early in the season this game does carry some playoff implications as the Raiders currently are in second place within the division and will be playing against a Jets team that is looking like a playoff caliber team. The Raiders impressive offense will face off against an elite Jets defense.




An Unlikely Story: Malcolm Smith

Andrew Flores – Oct 28, 2015

Malcolm Smith is truly an unlikely story. In high school he was a running back, and perhaps that explains Smith's rare athleticism. Smith was later recruited as a linebacker by  Ken Norton Jr. and in 2011 he was drafted by Seattle in the 7th round. Smith struggled with injuries early in his career, and was consequently the odd man out in Seattle. That is until things fell into place in 2013 when injuries ravaged Seattle's linebackers. Smith finally got his shot. He made the most of his chance and flashed some rare ability even earning a Superbowl MVP award. Nonetheless many saw this as a flash in the pan.
