New NFL rule allows Khalil Mack to wear college number, he wants to know: 46 or 52?

One of the fun facts about Khalil Mack from his college days was what prompted him to choose his number. He wore number 46 because that was the grade he was given on the EA Sports NCAA Football video game. That's a very low score and as motivation to prove he was better than their grade of him, he decided to put it on his chest. It worked. Mack became the most dominant pass linebacker in the country at University of Buffalo wearing that number. He was unable to wear that number in the NFL due to NFL rules that prohibited it. Now thanks to an NFL rule change, linebackers will once again be...

Power ranking Raiders 2015 defensive roster

What I did here was list each potential Raiders starter on the current roster based upon their grades by Pro Football Focus to come up with power rankings. Listed are their grades from last season, their adjusted grade, and position rank with the adjusted grade as the deciding factor as to where they land in the rankings. The adjusted grade is somewhat of a projection based upon factors explained under each player's name. The position rank is where their adjusted grade would rank them based on 2014 grades at their position. Team rank is where they rank among all Raiders players regardless...

Should the San Diego Chargers draft Randy Gregory if He Falls to Them?

Nebraska edge rusher Randy Gregory failed a drug test. Does that mean the Chargers should shy away from him? With the recent news that he failed a drug test, Nebraska's third team all-american edge rusher Randy Gregory has been quite the topic of social media these last 12 hours. It's as simplistic as it gets to compare him to Josh Gordon. That's not fair. It's also unfair to compare him to Justin Houston. I like to think we've grown as a society in 4 years and that the NFL has learned from their mistakes. So in short, Gregory isn't an addict, and he's not falling 2 full rounds because of...

Kansas City Chiefs free agency earns 'C' grade from ESPN

A media exercise in futility. Despite the fact that the offseason can still yield free agent signings after the June 1 cuts and rookies push veterans off rosters, ESPN recently compiled grades for free agent classes for each NFL team. A panel of Mike Sando, Field Yates, Matt Williamson, Louis Riddick and former NFL GM Bill Polian weighed in to create each grade with rundowns for each team. The only team that earned an all-around "A" was the Green Bay Packers, who pretty much remained in a cave and simply refused to let their best players leave (e.g. Randall Cobb, Bryan Bulaga). As for the...

SF Weekly revamp gets off on wrong foot with Raiders, compares Jay Mariotti to Hunter S Thompson

Hey, everyone, did you know SF Weekly has a new editor? Did you know they have a new sports columnist? Did you know they had a sports section? Did you know SF Weekly still existed? Well, they do. Their new editor has made a definitive statement about how his paper will be run. And it's a doozy. That new editor is Mark Segal Kemp. He has hired Jay Mariotti to be the new face of their sports column. For those unfamiliar with Mariotti, he used to write for AOL Fanhouse and made loud noises on ESPN programs such as Around the Horn. That was until he beat up his girlfriend and plead no contest...

What is Mark Fabiani's Master Plan?

Chargers' Special Counsel Mark Fabiani has launched an all-out attack against the Citizens' Stadium Advisory Group's selection of the Mission Valley site.

Mel Kiper Jr. says Breshad Perriman is an option for the Kansas City Chiefs

Perriman is rising up the draft boards and could be a fit for Kansas City. On Thursday afternoon, ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. held a conference call and talked about many topics, including the potential first-round picks for the Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas City is slated to pick at No. 18 and has fewer holes than it did before free agency, perhaps shrinking the pool of targets. Kiper discussed a few directions the Chiefs might go in, bringing a fairly new name into the mix. "I would think a guy like Breshad Perriman out of Central Florida. ... They didn't have a wide receiver with a...

City and County of San Diego Joining Forces to Build a New Stadium

According to multiple reports, the City of San Diego and County of San Diego have agreed to partner up to build a new stadium and keep the Chargers in San Diego. A press conference has been scheduled for 12:30 PM, outside the County Administration Building. There is no understating how critical this news is. There was simply no way the City could have undertaken this effort on their own. Having the County on board serves two very important purposes. First, and most importantly, the County is in much better financial shape than the City is, with estimated reserves in the billions of dollars....

Jack Del Rio wants Trent Richardson to focus on competing, doing dirty work, not being starter

There have been ten free agents signed by the Raiders this offseason. The last one was former top pick Trent Richardson who has joined his third team in three years. Upon signing with the team Richardson said he expects to be the starter. The way Richardson sees it, a player MUST always expect to be the starter if he is to make it happen. "If a guy is coming in and doesn't expect to be a starter, why is that guy here?" Richardson said after his signing on March 17. "For me, I expect to be a starter wherever I'm at. I just can't wait for the opportunity." There is some merit in that...

Darrelle Revis confirms Chiefs were interested in him during free agency

One of the free agency rumors making the rounds a few weeks ago was that the Kansas City Chiefs were among the teams interested in CB Darrelle Revis. As it turns out, this was accurate. The Chiefs were indeed interested, according to Revis himself who told SNY's Loud Mouths that several others were interested as well. "(It) was the Packers, Steelers, Baltimore as well as Cleveland, the Chiefs, the Jets and also the Pats, so there was a number of teams there," Revis said, per NFL.com. "I sat down and had conversations with (them) to see if we could work something out." The Revis...

Dorial Green-Beckham is worth the risk for the Kansas City Chiefs

Green-Beckham is the ultimate boom or bust pick. The Chiefs should go for broke. The Kansas City Chiefs have enjoyed a productive offseason. General manager John Dorsey provided Alex Smith wide a top-tier receiver in Jeremy Maclin, along with upgrades along the offensive line in Ben Grubbs and Paul Fanaika. The defense also got a boost with the retaining of Tamba Hali, Mike DeVito and Ron Parker, along with the signing of Tyvon Branch. Going into the NFL Draft, the only obvious need is center after the Chiefs lost Rodney Hudson to the Oakland Raiders. Should Dorsey acquire Stefen Wisniewski...
