What we learned at Raiders first OTA session, practice notes

First off, I hope everyone is having a happy and safe Memorial Day. We here at Silver & Black Pride are ever grateful for those service men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to save the lives of others and preserve our way of life. There has been a bit of an outcry for coverage of the Raiders' first OTA practice. The reason being that most of the Bay Area media was posted up in San Francisco for the owners meetings. But I was on the right(hand) side of the Bay and being that there weren't any real bombshells, I kinda dropped the ball. Even still, there were a few things learned from...

Chargers S Eric Weddle not expected to attend OTAs

What the heck is going on between the Chargers and their best defensive player? Along with Adrian Peterson, another high-profile player who won’t be at OTAs Tues: #Chargers Pro Bowl S Eric Weddle. He wants an extension — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) May 25, 2015 Well, well, well.... Let's quickly dig into this. I'll tell you what I've heard regarding the San Diego Chargers and Eric Weddle. While Weddle's cap hit in 2015 ($10.1 million), the final year of his contract, is the biggest among all Safeties in the league....his contract works out to, on average, make him the 6th highest paid...

That time Dontari Poe and Allen Bailey took on the entire Chargers offensive line

Quite often when I'm reviewing film on one player, I end up getting sidetracked by fantastic (or terrible) plays by other guys on the field. This is something of a double-edged sword. On one hand, my wandering eye leads to film reviews taking twice as long as they should. This is bad for my health. Not because I lose sleep or anything like that, but because it gets my wife one step closer to stabbing me in the eye with a pen (it's coming like a freight train, I just know it). On the other hand, if it weren't for my inability to focus on one thing for longer than 7.6 seconds, I would miss...

ESPN's Uni Watch calls Chiefs red on red jerseys the "blood-clot look"

The Pittsburgh Steelers have the No. 1 uniform in the NFL and the Kansas City Chiefs have the No. 10 uniform in the NFL according to ESPN's Uni Watch. How do you rank and judge uniforms? I have no idea. It's all subjective but that's the folks at Uni Watch have. Here's what Uni Watch said about the Chiefs uniforms: Much like the Bills, the Chiefs are a good-looking team that's lost points by going mono. Their red pants -- arguably the single best uniform component in the entire league when paired with the white jersey -- should never be used to create the blood-clot look (which the team...

This tweet sums up how sad the Oakland Raiders have become

This is just amazing: In 20 seasons since moving back to Oakland in 1995, the Raiders have 3 winning seasons (2000-02). — Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) May 25, 2015 That's really sad. At least they went to a Super Bowl (they lost) but I don't even think that high is worth all other lows. Since that Super Bowl, the Raiders have eight games twice and five or fewer games 10 times.

Can Chiefs get Justin Houston, Tamba Hali and Dee Ford on the field at the same time?

Having too many pass rushers you want on the field is not a problem most teams have but it's a good problem to have. It's one the Kansas City Chiefs are facing with Tamba Hali and Dee Ford in 2015. Tamba is back on what looks like a one-year deal while Ford enters his second season in the NFL. The debate is how you divy up those snaps. You brought Tamba back because he's still effective and you want him rushing the passer. Ford is a bit more of an unknown but he was a first round pick and can't go another season playing just a small percentage of the snaps. So how about plays where Tamba...

Story behind Len Dawson's start to broadcasting would never happen today

Have you heard the story behind Len Dawson, former Super Bowl winning quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, joining the local news? I knew Dawson, who also calls the Chiefs games with Mitch Holthus, had been involved in the Kansas City news scene for a long time. The story of how he started is a great one. Here's what Lenny told The MMQB: The Chiefs moved from Dallas, and football was new for Kansas City. For the first couple years there wasn't much as far as attendance and the things they have now, which I like to call Chiefs Kingdom. They had three TV stations, and two of them didn't...

Horse Tracks: No, the Kansas City Chiefs will not win the AFC West in 2015

So NFL.com's Gill Brandt wrote last week that the Denver Broncos were likely to succumb to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2015 in the fight for the AFC West title. This has Chiefs fans all hot and bothered over this fantasy built around weak logic and wishful thinking. It's gone so far that now you even have random bloggers going "in depth" on how it will happen. Rather than laugh, let's be realistic. The Denver Broncos are still loaded with talent and the bum-legged Peyton Manning still limped into Kansas City and beat those Chiefs handily in front of a sell-out, dejected crowd at...

Daily(ish) Mailbag: Corners, Brady, Fear The Walking Dead

We're back! With me currently neck-deep in a film review of Ron Parker (safeties, especially single high free safeties, are tough to evaluate in a traditional sense) our time is limited.

Catching up with Tim Brown on the road to Canton

I caught up with Raiders legendary receiver, Tim Brown, as he is now headed for his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He shared how his life has changed in the wake of being named to the 2015 class and what's next for him. In the military, one of our favorite sayings was ‘hurry up and wait'. It's a phrase that has made its way into our everyday lives as it seems to relate to many facets of life. Such was the case with Tim Brown's NFL career and beyond. The now Hall of Fame former NFL receiver spent 17 years -- 16 of which as a member of the Raiders -- sculpting his legacy....

Denver Broncos X's and O's: Pressure begets pressure

Ever hear of Pavlov? He was a Russian Physiologist who did a lot of experiments that ultimately were able to identify classical conditioning. His most famous involved a dog, dinner, and a bell. Whenever Pavlov would feed his dogs, he would also ring a bell. The dog's natural response was to salivate. Soon, the dog would learn to associate the bell with food so that whenever Pavlov would ring the bell, the dog would start to salivate even if there wasn't any food present. This is the conditioned response and it's a type of learning we are all susceptible to. Let's bring the psychology to...

Linebacker Shaquil Barrett has been flying under the radar

DeMarcus Ware, Von Miller and Shane Ray will be the trio of Broncos pass rushers atop the depth charts set to wreak havoc on opposing quarterbacks. But the battle for the back-up roles are already underway this off-season, and former Colorado State Ram Shaquil Barrett has the potential to earn playing time in 2015. After a productive collegiate career, three days of the 2014 NFL Draft came and went and Shaquil Barrett, one of college football's best defenders didn't hear his name called. That doesn't mean teams weren't interested in his services. He garnered interest from a handful of...

Tim Brown to receive Hall of Fame ring at Raiders week 8 home game vs Jets

Raiders legendary wide receiver Tim Brown will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this August. That's when he will take to the podium in Canton to receive his bust and yellow jacket. The party isn't over there. As Brown told me in an exclusive interview Thursday, he will be receiving his Hall of Fame ring during the team's week eight game in Oakland. "I'll be getting my ring on November 1st," Brown said. "Not quick enough, but that's the days that the Raiders have said, so I'll be looking forward to that. Not only will I be getting my ring, but the other Hall of Famers for the Raiders will...

Can Travis Kelce hit 1,000 yards receiving for the Kansas City Chiefs?

I talked with Brandon Kiley on KTGR the other day and he had a good question: Will Travis Kelce pass 1,000 yards receiving next season? My initial reaction is probably not. I mean, a tight end over 1,000 yards? That seems unlikely, especially in the Chiefs offense. Not many receivers have hit 1,000 yards under Andy Reid so a tight end doing it doesn't seem likely. But... Kelce had 862 yards yards receiving last season despite being a part-time player for part of the season. His week-by-week stats were actually pretty consistent despite not playing full-time snaps early in the season. The...
