LaFell to IR ‘big loss’ for Raiders, but Jordy Nelson has ‘chance’ to return this week

Within a few weeks time, Brandon LaFell went from afterthought to the best receiver the Raiders had. Now he’s done for the season. The 6-3, 210-pound receiver ruptured his Achilles tendon in the third quarter against the Cardinals Sunday and has been officially placed on injured reserve. “It’s a big loss for us,” Gruden said of LaFell. “He was good. He was a good player,” Gruden continued. “He beat Patrick Peterson on a touchdown pass yesterday. Went up and got a huge third-down conversion. Touchdown against the Colts. He did a lot of things for us. He played multiple...

Steve Wilks’ time with the Arizona Cardinals may be running out

Steve Wilks’ time with the Arizona Cardinals may be running out

Did the Raiders loss determine that Wilks is a one-and-done head coach in the league? The Arizona Cardinals just lost to the worst team in the NFL head-to-head. They’ve fallen to 2-8 with their only two wins against the one team currently ahead of them in the NFL Draft order. What does that make the Arizona Cardinals, then? So how does it reflect on Wilks himself? At the start of the season following his hiring, Wilks was brought in as an aggressive, straightforward leader of men who would bring discipline and accountability and continue the Cardinals’ ability to be a competitive team...

Analysis of the Cardinals’ 23-21 Loss To Raiders

Analysis of the Cardinals’ 23-21 Loss To Raiders

Offense: Plusses: RB David Johnson rushed for 25/137/5.5. As was suggested last week, Johnson needed to mix his speeds and not be so deliberate in hitting the holes. He did just that this week. The makeshift offensive line paved the way for 154 yards rushing and only gave up one sack. Credit OLC Ray Brown for the week’s preparation. Rookie LT Korey Cunningham and newly signed RG Oday Aboushi were solid. QB Josh Rosen’s 3 TDs—-(1) his patented freeze the safety, turn and fire a tight-spiraled dime on the skinny post to Larry Fitzgerald was a Rembrandt; (2) the hitch screen to...

Loss to Oakland Raiders leaves only one question... Is it time for Steve Wilks and Steve Keim to go?

Loss to Oakland Raiders leaves only one question... Is it time for Steve Wilks and Steve Keim to go?

What do the Arizona Cardinals do after hitting rock bottom? Where do you begin? Is it time to tear it all down and start fresh or were these expected growing pains with an overhaul the size of the one the Arizona Cardinals are going through? That’s really what the question becomes. If the Cardinals truly expected to contend and feel the personnel is strong enough, much to the chagrin of the national media, then there is only one culprit… Steve Wilks. If the team thought it was good enough to contend despite not understanding how much talent they lacked through the roster, then it’s on...

Raiders week 11 report card vs Cardinals: Special teams top of the class

It wasn’t pretty but nonetheless it’s still a win in the books for the Raiders. Rookie, Marcell Ateman playing in his first career game was the hero on the day making two catches in the game winning drive including a big 32 yard gain that moved the Raiders into field goal position. It really is remarkable the Raiders were able to pull out a win despite all of the adversity they faced during the week with only one practice and the injuries to Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant.

Youngsters take advantage of opportunities, lift Raiders to second win of the season

Could it be the Oakland Raiders’ 23-21 win over the Arizona Cardinals was a peek into the future? It was another Derek Carr 4th-quarter comeback special in Arizona Sunday, but he had a lot of help. Mostly from players with three years or less experience in the NFL. Many of whom didn’t have too many opportunities to play until recently. This day the youngsters had a heavy hand in the Raiders’ big win. It started with cornerback Gareon Conley, the 2017 1st-round pick. On the second play of the game for the Cardinals’ offense, he intercepted a Josh Rosen and returned it 28 yards to...

Raiders’ Gruden, Carr downplay ‘mild disagreement’ on sideline

Jon Gruden and Derek Carr talk often about their close working relationship as Raiders head coach and quarterback, so it was interesting to witness their exchange in the second quarter Sunday in Arizona. After a deep incompletion on 3rd and 5 from midfield, on which Carr and running back Jalen Richard appeared not on the same page, Carr returned to the sideline and exchanged words with Gruden, who at one point held his arms outstretched, palms up. Carr continued to gesture as he walked away from Gruden. After the Raiders’ 23-21 win over the Cardinals, both insisted the confrontation caught...

Raiders vs. Cardinals: 4 Winners, 4 Losers

The Raiders got a huge win in Arizona when it looked like their injuries and general inefficiencies would lead them down the path of defeat once again. One can argue that maybe they shouldn’t have won this game and crashed their draft position, but one could also argue a win like this is good for team morale. There were a lot of young players who played their hearts out today, and they deserved this win. So who climbed the ladder of glory, and who descended the chute of despair?

Arizona Cardinals finally the worst, lose to Oakland Raiders 23-21

The Arizona Cardinals did the impossible. Found a way to lose to the miserable Oakland Raiders. Well… that was something. The Arizona Cardinals are officially the worst. Oh sure, they won't end the season with the worst record, but there are little to no redeeming qualities left to find. Their rookie quarterback threw a career high three touchdowns, but also threw two interceptions that directly resulted in two Oakland Raiders touchdowns. The Cardinals defense gave up 152 yards rushing to a team averaging 97 a game. They created no turnovers and gave up 23 points to a team that was...

Raiders beat Cardinals, 23-21, on last-second field goal

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Derek Carr took the field with 1:53 left Sunday flanked in the Raiders’ huddle by running back Jalen Richard and receivers Seth Roberts, Marcell Ateman and Saeed Blacknall. It wasn’t the skill group the Raiders envisioned when they started this wayward season. But on Sunday afternoon, it was enough. Trailing 21-20, Carr led a final drive including a 32-yard pass to Ateman, a rookie making his NFL debut, and a 20-yard throw to Roberts, the most experienced member left in an injury-ravaged receiver corps, to set up a last-second field-goal attempt by Daniel...

The Oakland Raiders kicked off to the Arizona Cardinals to start the game but the Cardinals didn’t hold onto the ball long. Within the first minute their rookie QB Josh Rosen’s pass was intercepted by CB Gareon Conley who returned it 29 yards to the Arizona 33. It took just 3 plays before they scored a touchdown to Jared Cook who completely shook his defender with a double move on the 23 yard TD reception. The touchdown made the score 7-0 Raiders, and was their first TD since Week 8. Unfortunately the Raiders defense couldn’t come up with a stop the next time around. The Cardinals got...
