Raiders Countdown to Kickoff: 71: Who wore it best, who's wearing it now

Happy Fourth of July everyone. And, of course, Happy Birthday, Al Davis. We are now at 71 days until the 2015 season which means we recognize the best to every wear the number 71 for the Raiders as well as who currently sports that number in Silver & Black. Who wore it best: DT Bill Pickel He was the Raiders second round pick in 1983, a round after Don Mosebar who was my choice as the best to wear number 72 for the Raiders. So, all in all, a very good draft. Pickel appeared in all 16 games that season as a reserve nose tackle and poste 6.0 sacks on the way to the Raiders win in Super Bowl...

John Dorsey once had an incredible mustache

Chris Thorman, my brother and co-editor of the site, used to wear a mustache. So as someone with mustache experience, Chris can probably appreciate the beauty that is John Dorsey's former mustache. This comes via Wes Hodkiewicsz of the Green Bay Press Gazette: Going through #Packers Season Reviews...Former LB/Exec and current #Chiefs GM John Dorsey wore a quality mustache pic.twitter.com/EErvE1bfpt — Wes Hodkiewicz (@WesHod) March 31, 2015 This picture appears to be taken of Dorsey's time as a player for the Packers in the 1980s.

Horse Tracks: Virgil Green welcomes peoples higher expectations of him

Good Morning Broncos Country! After the Denver Broncos let Julius Thomas walk in free agency and sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars, they re-signed Virgil Green to replace Thomas in their offense. This is something that Green knows he can do. Virgil Green welcomes higher expectations with Broncos http://t.co/vmkFwSEsQk — ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) July 3, 2015 With Green now having a larger role in the offense and expected to start in Gary Kubiak's offense, it brings much larger expectations than the ones he has had in previous years.

Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 7/4

A very happy Independence Day to all of you this morning! Be safe and enjoy the holiday. Here's your Kansas City Chiefs news. Josh Mauga and the Right Place at the Right Time from The Mothership "Any time you have injuries, it is frustrating," Mauga would later say. "Having one back-to-back like I did, I wasn't sure if I was going to get a chance to play again." Add it all up—that string of bad luck that sometimes goes along with the human body—and it was more than one year and nine months between his last game and when the Chiefs called. The risk was no doubt there, but to cite a...

Friday Raiders mailbag 7/3: Can front 7 mask DB deficiencies? Amari Cooper a KR? and more

It's the Friday mailbag! If you sent in a question, you may find your answer here. Or perhaps you will find an answer to a question you didn't think to ask. Matthew asks: Will our front 7 be able to compensate for the deficiencies of the secondary? In other words, will we be able to stop the run at the line and pressure the QB adequately? Stop the run? Yes. Pressure the QB? That is far less certain. They have two large, lane cloggers in the middle in Dan Williams and Justin Ellis, added Mario Edwards, whose strong suit is stopping the run, and we know Khalil Mack can help stop the run from...

What condition the Raiders position is in: Offensive tackle

Is this the worst San Diego Chargers offseason ever?

People keep claiming that it is, so I felt compelled to ask: Have the San Diego Chargers ever had an offseason worse than this? Every time something new and terrible happens with the San Diego Chargers this offseason (Rivers trade rumors, Weddle contract non-negotiations, Los Angeles rumors, the team fighting with the city, Gates being suspended, etc.), people fill up my mentions on Twitter and my e-mail inbox with the phrase "worst Chargers offseason ever." Now, I've only been a fan for about 17 years. That's not all that long. The team existed for nearly 40 years before that, and I have...

Raiders Countdown to Kickoff: 72: Who wore it best, who's wearing it now

Wow, this was a tough one. It's numbers like 72 that make me wish I didn't have to separate these guys by their number. There are at least three very deserving players in Raider franchise history one could make an argument deserves to be named as the best to wear it. But unfortunately I must choose just one. Who wore it best: C Don Mosebar (1983-94) Mosebar was drafted in the first round by the Raiders in 1983 and unfortunately carried the distinction of being the player chosen just before Dan Marino. It also means he got his Super Bowl ring as a rookie. That year he watched his...

The 1964 Denver Broncos were not a very good team, but never quit

The Denver Broncos decided to repeat 1963 by going 2-11-1 again. This time their defense stepped things up, but their offense collapsed instead. Thanks for that one! The offense scored just 24 offensive touchdowns and would lose plenty of close games that year. Head coach Jack Faulkner was replaced by receivers coach Mac Speedie. Speedie ended the Broncos’ four-game losing streak but would go 1-7-1 the rest of the way. Thanks to the worst trade ever, the Broncos also traded away a chance to draft Joe Namath in 1965 (for what amounted to a two-year rental on quarterback Jackie...

The key to Kansas City Chiefs season might be the injuries

We've spent a lot of time talking about the impact Jeremy Maclin will have on Alex Smith's deep ball, how Jamaal Charles can help lead the Chiefs, the emergence of Travis Kelce and a top five KC Chiefs defense. But maybe all those things aren't quite as important to the Chiefs success as this one: injuries. The Chiefs two years ago were a very, very healthy team and ended up winning 11 games. Last year the Chiefs were on the other end of the spectrum as one of the more banged up teams and they won just nine games. This list of adjusted games lost by Football Outsiders (via Reddit) the last...

NFL coach power rankings: Gary Kubiak not among the top half in the NFL?

Is Gary Kubiak among the Top 16 NFL coaches? There are 32 head coaches in the NFL today. NFL.com's Elliot Harrison does not think Gary Kubiak should be ranked among the top half. In Harrison's recent power rankings, Kubiak, Denver's coach, ranked No. 20. Wrote Harrison: You could make an argument for Kubiak to be ranked anywhere in the large midsection of this list, but No. 20 feels like the right spot. Most league observers feel he is a solid fit for both the Broncos and Peyton Manning. The last time we saw Kubiak as a head coach, he was leading a Texans team that finished with the worst...

Miami Dolphins concerned about guard and Kansas City Chiefs could have an extra one

Sometimes you just need to go all out with some good 'ol speculation. That's what this post is after reading an item in the Miami Herald regarding the Miami Dolphins offensive line. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that in Miami there is "concern about the situation at guard, where nobody has seized a position." The Chiefs, as you know, already have one former offensive lineman in Miami in Branden Albert. Could there be another former Chiefs lineman coming to Miami? I mention this because the Chiefs have a number of players I like at guard, perhaps one too many. Jeff Allen is...

Broncos' All-Could-Have-Been team led by quarterback Russell Wilson

Denver's roster would have looked very different today had they gone after some of these players. All NFL teams make mistakes. The Broncos are no exception when it comes to coulda-shoulda-woulda moments. Over the past few years, the team has missed out on some big players. Some of the biggest names are highlighted below: QB: Russell Wilson Denver selected quarterback Brock Osweiler 57th overall in 2012. One round later, the Seahawks drafted Russell Wilson 75th overall. RB1: Eddie Lacy Three selections after the Broncos selected running back Montee Ball 58th overall in 2013, the Packers...

Chargers' Antonio Gates among four players suspended by NFL

Thursday was not a good day to be an NFL player. The NFL brought down the hammer on Thursday. The NFL announced the suspensions of four players. All four were suspended for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Chargers tight end Antonio Gates, Jets defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, and Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain were all suspended four games. Packers pass-rusher Datone Jones was suspended one game. The Broncos play the Chargers and Packers this season, but not before Gates's and Jones's suspensions are complete. Denver will face Green Bay at home in Week 8, San Diego...

Raiders attend pro day for supplemental draft prospects

The supplemental draft is coming up in a week on July 9. In total there are seven players eligible for that draft. Two of those players were on display Thursday at the West Georgia Pro Day and the Raiders were one of the teams with representatives in attendance to see it. Those players are defensive tackle Dalvon Stuckey and defensive end Darrius Caldwell. Stuckey was a Junior college transfer to West Georgia in 2014. The 6-4, 300-pounder had 40 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, and 4.0 sacks last season. Caldwell dominated the Gulf South Conference last season with 18.5 tackles for loss and...
