Steeler and college teammate David DeCastro had feeling that Seattle's Richard Sherman would be a household name

PITTSBURGH -- Richard Sherman had already established himself a star in the NFL long before the 2013 NFC championship game. But it was what he said afterward, a 25-second tirade aimed at San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree on national…

Crabtree’s catch might have been overturned if Del Rio challenged

DETROIT — Raiders’ coach Jack Del Rio thought about throwing the red challenge flag when Michael Crabtree’s apparent reception on the sideline in the second quarter was ruled incomplete. He probably should have. Crabtree’s snag, in which he tip-toed inside… Continue Reading →

Vikings keep Raiders’ deep threats in check

“In certain looks and certain situations, they know they can just play a certain way and then you have to take short passes,” quarterback Derek Carr said. The Vikings’ defense kept everything in front of it, contained receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree and did a good job of tackling to prevent short plays from becoming long ones. When the Vikings did send extra men in the second quarter, Carr hit Andre Holmes on a 34-yard touchdown pass. “They were really more cautious in terms of how they approached us,” Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said. Mack also had two...

Minnesota Vikings at Oakland Raiders: Fourth Quarter Open Thread

After deferring the coin toss to start the game, the Oakland Raiders got to receive the second half kickoff from the Minnesota Vikings, with the purple and gold holding a 20-14 lead. The kick from Blair Walsh resulted in a touchback, and the Raiders started out at their own 20-yard line. Everson Griffen managed to get a sack of Derek Carr early in the drive, but Carr then found Michael Crabtree to convert on third down. Carr and Crabtree hooked up again to convert another third down as the Raiders approached midfield. The Vikings then, finally, got the stop thanks to a couple of very nice...

This Anthony Davis tweet about Michael Crabtree is something

This tweet popped up Wednesday afternoon, and I've been meaning to share it for a little while now. The Oakland Raiders tweeted out a video of Michael Crabtree making a one-handed catch. Plenty of one-handed catches happen, but it shows off the grip on his hands, the way he hauls it in. It's pretty impressive. This resulted in Anthony Davis tweeting the video with a comment of his own. He said Crabtree would do this in practice, "then came to the huddle pissed off about placement of the ball." Some people read this as talking smack about Crabtree, but honestly, I am having a hard time...

Raiders: This & that ... stats & facts

Touchdown passes for Derek Carr, making him the first Oakland QB since Rich Gannon in 2001 to throw at least three in three consecutive games. Carr completed 24 of 44 passes for 301 yards and was not sacked (he did throw an interception). Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper each had seven catches and combined for 196 yards and three of the TDs. The Raiders return home to play Minnesota and running back Adrian Peterson, left, on Sunday in what looks to be a difficult game before a three-game stretch against sub-.500 teams. Franchise-record receiving yards for Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown...

Throwback Thursday: Vernon Davis' rejected dunk

Epic fail. That is all. Today, I had a couple good ideas for an Atlanta Falcons memory, but after the Vernon trade, I scrapped all of that to bring you this. One of Vernon finer moments in stupidity. Let me bring you up to speed: Jimmy Graham started a new tradition of 'dunking' the ball through the goal posts, due to his basketball history. After that became a thing, the celebration infected other teams to become a variation on basketball with players doing their own dunks, lay-ups, etc. Michael Crabtree, for instance, did a layup in the 2012 divisional game against the Saints. Well,...

NFL Power Rankings: Jets Fall Back

The Jets did not take much of a hit in NFL Power Rankings after their loss to New England, but a second straight loss has dropped them out of the top ten. NFL.com: 11th It's Geno Smith's fault the Jets lost in Oakland. Wasn't he wearing No. 31 in white on that Michael Crabtree touchdown? Why wasn't his coverage on Andre Holmes tighter? Everyone in America watching a short Jets-Raiders highlight package probably said "Uh huh" when learning Smith was the quarterback for this defeat. The inconvenient truth is that No. 7 didn't fare too poorly. His lone turnover did not result in any Raiders...

Crabtree’s move across bay pays off for both him and Raiders

Michael Crabtree has plied his trade in the Bay Area since 2009, so Northern California fans have had a close-up view of him for a long time. “The person you describe, I’ve never seen,” quarterback Derek Carr said. With Amari Cooper contained by Jets All-Pro Darrelle Revis, Carr looked for other targets. Carr called it “dad strength.” Crabtree brings experience, having played in NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl. From Day 1, he really fit in our locker room and has been a great teammate.
