Raiders Shoot Down The Jets, Win 34-24

Quick reactions from the Raiders 34-24 victory over the New York Jets.

Chimdi Chekwa filled in admirably when Chris Johnson exited the game with an injury.

The offensive line has allowed one sack in three games, a much improved unit.

Jason Campbell has made the most of the extra time in the pocket.

Denarius Moore is a special player. Raiders will make sure he is on the field.

Darren McFadden has a groin injury. He was laughing on the sideline next to Jackson at the end of the game. McFadden says it is nothing serious, but it is worth keeping an eye on.

New England comes to Oakland next week, Raiders will need to get healthy and figure out how they will attack Tom Brady and stop the Patriots passing game.

  1. The raiders are going to the playoffs... its their time I been saying it all along now people get to see wat I already know... the offense is built for any type of weather and can score points... now they are clicking and its scary

  2. Bresnahan made defensive adjustments and we came out and finished off the game in the second half. The O-line protection of Campbell has been exceptional considering the expectations coming in to the season. One of those three sacks was a gift because Campbell tripped on DMC today. The secondary is a big worry but with the O playing this well why should we no believe we can score points on an average Patriots D and pass rush next week. Again we're on familiar 2010 territory in that we need to prove we can put together back to back wins.

  3. It essentially boils down to DMC staying healthy for the full season, this guy might end up leading the league with yards from scrimmage if he plays the full 16

  4. Good point Matt. Back-to-back wins are still something that has elluded the Raiders.

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

Pryor Will Successfully Appeal Suspension

It is common belief that Terrelle Pryor was suspended five games by the NFL because of his miss steps at Ohio State. This is simply untrue. Terrelle Pryor was suspended five games for not following the rules of the supplemental draft entry process. Pryor hired Drew Rosenhaus before he was ruled ineligible for the first five games at Ohio State. Based on the rules of the supplemental draft Pryor should have been ineligible for entry. The power of the media and his agent put the league in a tough position. Instead of doing what they should have done and forced Pryor to sit for a year, the NFL allowed his entry while trying to appear tough. There are basically two arguments Pryor will be able to make to get the suspension lifted. 1) The NFL is punishing Pryor because they chose to not follow their own rules. There is no precedent or rule that allows for any such suspension. 2) The five-game suspension is the NFL is punishing Pryor for his college mistakes. This is also unprecedented. The
