Raiders Sign Edwards To Back-up Campbell

  Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson set in stone that Jason Campbell is number one quarterback to lead them back in contention.

Last season they were bless […]

Bruce Gradkowski has a third-degree separation of this throwing shoulder

Raiders Consistent, Unfortunately

The Raiders’ season, for all intents and purposes, ended on Sunday. After Jacoby Ford took the opening kick back 101 yards for a score, many of us thought–yours truly included–that they were going to rebound from the week’s drubbing the week prior in Pittsburgh and rebound against the Miami Dolphins.

Oakland Raiders Head Coach Tom Cable did a gutsy thing on Wednesday by naming Bruce Gradkowski his starting quarterback after Bruuuuce led the Raiders to 13 points and a come-from-behind win over the Rams last Sunday. But let’s be honest: beating the Rams is about as impressive as beating the Washington […]
