Broncos putting together staff of former Raiders coaches, adding DB coach Marcus Robertson

Broncos putting together staff of former Raiders coaches, adding DB coach Marcus Robertson

I guess the Broncos figure turnabout is fair play. After the Raiders last two head coach hires were former Broncos Defensive Coordinators, new Broncos head coach Vance Joseph is filling out his staff with former Raiders coaches. The latest moves are former Raiders DB coaches Joe Woods and Marcus Robertson. Broncos are planning to name Marcus Robertson as DB coach. Formerly with Raiders. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) January 17, 2017 Woods becomes the team’s Defensive Coordinator, promoted from DB coach, and Robertson takes the DB coach job, following Woods just as he did in...

Karl Joseph named to PFWA All Rookie Team

Karl Joseph named to PFWA All Rookie Team

After releasing their All NFL and All Conference teams Monday, the Pro Football Writers Association has put out their All Rookie Team. One Raiders rookie made the team — 14 overall pick safety Karl Joseph. Here’s the full squad: Only one other Raiders player may have had a shot at making this team. Jalen Richard was a candidate as a return man, but Chiefs rookie Tyreek Hill swept both return spots as well as special teams player. Joseph, didn’t start the season as the team worked him back slowly since he had missed a lot of time with an ACL injury he suffered his...

Oakland Police Lieutenant credits Raiders QB Derek Carr for retweet assist in finding missing child

Oakland Police Lieutenant credits Raiders QB Derek Carr for retweet assist in finding missing child

We’ve all seen the facebook messages and tweets that go out when a child is missing. Sometimes we share them, sometimes, for whatever reason, we do not. Social media is a powerful thing. It can take a piece of news and spread it faster than just about any other vehicle. And when a celebrity or sports star gives it a share, it adds to the impact exponentially. Making every citizen a watchdog is the ultimate way to find a missing person or a suspect. Well before they had the power of social media, authorities used the AMBER Alert system as a means of tracking down a missing child. Now the...

Watch: 10 best moments from Raiders 2016 offense

Watch: 10 best moments from Raiders 2016 offense

A review of the 10 best moments from the Offense from 2016 with video The cruel nature of the NFL is that all but one of the league's most successful teams will end the season with a loss. Each team, regardless of the successes they've had and the adversities they've overcome will end one a down note and be reduced to a single loss in the playoffs. In the aftermath of the way the season ended, it's easy to be frustrated and disappointed and to lose sight of exactly what a remarkable and magical season it really was. 2016 was a fantastic season and one that should be remembered with all the...

Former Raiders DC Jason Tarver to interview for DC in DC

Former Raiders DC Jason Tarver to interview for DC in DC

During the Raiders rebuild, they cobbled together a coaching staff of who’s who among who will actually take the job. Among those on Dennis Allen’s staff was former 49ers linebacker coach Jason Tarver. When Allen’s staff was ousted following the 2014 season, Tarver returned to the 49ers as a linebackers coach where he’s coached the past two seasons. Now, he will be the next Defensive Coordinator candidate in Washington to replaced the fired Joe Barry. #Redskins will also interview 49ers LBs coach Jason Tarver for their defensive coordinator position, per source. Was Raiders DC...

NFL 2017 Draft order: Raiders to pick at 24

NFL 2017 Draft order: Raiders to pick at 24

With another weekend of playoff games in the books, we have four new additions to the draft order. The Texans beat the Raiders in the opening round and all it got them was the next draft spot at 25 overall. The Seahawks also won in the wild card but fell to the Falcons in the Divisional round to land at the 26 spot. Despite the Chiefs and Cowboys earning first round byes as top seeds, both would be 'one and done' and round out the draft order down to 28 overall. Just four teams remain for the final draft spots -- the Steelers, Patriots, Packers, and Falcons. The two losers will join the...

Divisional Playoff Open Thread: Patriots vs. Texans

The cow on the Texans' helmets travels to Foxboro for slaughter tonight. Greetings, Raider fans! Tonight is the second game of the Divisional Round between the New England Patriots and the Houston Texans. The Texans bounced the Raiders last week, while New England had the first round off, as they do every year. The Texans do actually have the best defense in football this year, for all the good it will do them against Tom Brady and his army of white receivers. Gym rats and students of the game, the lot of them. Jadeveon Clowney could be a wild card in this game, though. He was a major...

Bill O’Brien’s future could ride on playoff game vs. Raiders

Bill O’Brien’s future could ride on playoff game vs. Raiders

The 49ers laundry list could very well grow with a Texans playoff loss. The Houston Texans host the Oakland Raiders on Saturday in a matchup of two teams with serious quarterback issues. The Raiders lost Derek Carr to a broken leg and backup Matt McGloin to a shoulder injury, leaving them starting rookie Connor Cook. The Texans signed Brock Osweiler to a big contract this past offseason, only to bench him in Week and move Tom Savage into the starting lineup. Savage suffered a concussion last week, and now Osweiler is back in the lineup for the playoff opener. I think the Raiders can spring...

Pre-Game Recon: Raiders’ Offense “A Shell Of Itself”

Pre-Game Recon: Raiders’ Offense “A Shell Of Itself”

You never like to see injuries to great players, but Connor Cook starting at quarterback for the Raiders could be the best gift the Texans could possibly hope for. Levi Damien of our sister site, Silver and Black Pride, is back again to answer all of our questions in advance of tomorrow’s rematch with the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders look remarkably different than they did just a couple of months ago, most notably because of the absence of their MVP-caliber quarterback, Derek Carr. Oakland’s backup QB, Matt McGloin, also went down with an injury last week, which means rookie third...

Battle Red Balls: Wild Card Edition (Raiders v. Texans)

Guessing which Texans will stand out in the playoff game against the Raiders long before they actually take the field. For the first time in the illustrious history of the greatest awards column ever to take place under the Battle Red Balls title on Battle Red Blog, your Houston Texans are in the playoffs and geared up for revenge on the Oakland Raiders. The loss to Oakland in Mexico City earlier this season was controversial at best. Now, with a Carr-less Raiders coming to Houston, the chance to right a wrong is squarely in the Texans’ sights. We’re so confident that Houston will...
Raiders-Texans final injury report: Donald Penn ruled OUT

Raiders-Texans final injury report: Donald Penn ruled OUT

The news no Raiders fan wanted to read today has come down. Raiders left tackle Donald Penn is officially OUT for the team's Wild Card opener Saturday in Houston. Also out is Nate Allen who was unable to pass the concussion protocol. Replacing Penn at left tackle will likely be Menelik Watson, who would move over from his right tackle spot, with Austin Howard returning to starting right tackle duties. Replacing Allen will likely be Karl Joseph, who is officially questionable but expected to return after missing the final four games of the season with a toe injury. Oakland...
AP NFL All Pro 2017 team: Khalil Mack, Kelechi Osemele first team, Marquette King 2nd team

AP NFL All Pro 2017 team: Khalil Mack, Kelechi Osemele first team, Marquette King 2nd team

The Associated Press has released their selections for the All Pro team with a couple Raiders in its ranks. Khalil Mack makes first team for a second consecutive season, while left guard Kelechi Osemele is named first team All Pro for the first time in his career. Punter Marquette King was named second team All Pro with Rams punter Johnny Hekker garnering the first team honors. Last year Mack made history by being named All Pro at both defensive end and linebacker. That is likely what prompted a change of designation by AP, creating the position of ‘Edge rusher’. Mack and Osemele were...

Welcome to the playoffs, Raider Nation. Greetings, Raider Nation! It is I, the man who can get to work on time 'cause he's got nothing better to do, the man who supports your system and goes to court when he has to, and the man who is kind, just not your kind, Raiderdamus the Great and Powerful. So this is what it feels like to be in the playoffs. This anxiety, this impending feeling of dread, this sense that in a month football will be all over until next fall. It's been a long time since any of us felt this way, with our team one of the twelve remaining with a chance to win it all. The...
Key to Raiders offensive success vs Texans also might be their most difficult task

Key to Raiders offensive success vs Texans also might be their most difficult task

Facing the Texans in the Wild Card game, the Raiders must somehow improve in the one area that they struggled in their previous meeting during the regular season. By halftime in the Raiders’ first meeting with the Texans in Mexico City, the two teams were tied 10-10. With the way the Raiders were playing at that time, it was a downright miracle they were tied, let alone not getting trounced. What was working for the Texans in that first half is what has made them the NFL’s top rated defense this season. It starts with Jadeveon Clowney and works out from there. Clowney was a force to be...
