Raiders 23 Chiefs 8 Final, McFadden, Fargas Hurt

It looks like Fargas and McFadden got hurt. We wont know the extent of Fargas' groin injury for sometime, but Lane Kiffin said McFadden had a toe injury that looks like Turf Toe. Turf toe is a three week injury. So for all of you who drafted McFadden and Fargas in Fantasy Football, pick up Michael Bush.

Players of the Game: Besides the obvious, my gameball goes to Gerrard Warren on defense and Mario Henderson on Offense.

Warren was all over the place and the main reason Larry Johnson had a 1.8 ypc day. Mario played extremely well protecting Russell's blindside and in the run game.


It was a tremendous win. After the adrenaline rush of the game clears my system, I'll have a more comprehensive review, but as it is now, we dominated every aspect of the game.

A much stiffer challenge awaits us in Buffalo. Buffalo is 2-0 and beat a good Jacksonville team today.

I'm not trying to stir up any animosity or anything, but there is something to be said for Al Davis making a road game. He usually stays at home for road games.

Please Note: I beat all the Raiders beat writers to the McFadden injury.

The Four Letter Word is reporting that Kiffin could be fired, even with the win today. I wouldn't say that is the brightest move heading into Buffalo next week. If he is going to do it, he should wait until the bye week to give the new head coach time to regroup and establish a report with players.

Oakland Raiders Swing for the Fences in 2016 NFL Draft

[embed align="center"]http://gty.im/153039819[/embed] These aren't your daddy's Oakland Raiders or even your younger self's Raiders. If anything, these are your newborn's Raiders or your puppy's Raiders. These are the Raiders we've never seen before. Indicative of the freshness of the franchise was their 2016 NFL Draft. No longer slave to a high draft pick and desperate needs, the theme of the draft for the Raiders was upside. It's as if general manager Reggie McKenzie got so used to hitting his draft picks out of the park that he started swinging for the fences. We'll have to wait a couple of years before we know if he struck out or if he'll continue his Ruthian ways. First, McKenzie boldly went with a safety at No. 14 overall. Kyle Joseph is coming off a torn ACL and fills a major need, but safety isn't a premium position. Only a handful of safeties have been drafted in the first 14 picks in the last 15 years and include names like Ea

Looking Forward: Raiders 2012 Free Agents

Khalif Barnes - Weakest link on the offensive line with youth behind him. Raiders will look for for other options. It's not as if there aren't a dozen Khalif's on the street each year. Darryl Blackstock - Was a Chuck Bresnahan guy, but found a home on special teams. Would have to make the team as a reserve LB and special teams guy next training camp. Wouldn't be surprised to see him back as a camp body or gone entirely. Kyle Boller - Hue didn't have enough confidence to turn to Boller. Expect the Raiders to look elsewhere for a backup to Carson Palmer. Jerome Boyd - Was nothing more than a reserve and special teams player. Some good moments and some very bad ones. Camp body again and fate will depend on the defensive coordinator. Tyvon Branch - About the only consistent producer in the secondary. Raiders will want to bring him back. Desmond Bryant - He's been great in limited action and can play inside and out. Key reserve. Michael Bush - He'll find a home a
