Raiders miss opportunities against 49ers in loss of Battle of the Bay

The Oakland Raiders (2-4) hoped to come into Candlestick Park and get their second straight victory for the first time since the end of 2008, and they began the game like they would get it. Even while leading for most of the game, the Raiders weren’t able to find an offensive rhythm after the first quarter, and it led to a 17-9 loss to the San Francisco 49ers (1-5).

Michael Huff plans on winning defensive award two weeks in a row

Michael Huff has taken a lot of criticism in his four-plus years as former first round defensive back. After forcing the fumble that sealed the Raiders’ first victory against the San Diego Chargers in 14 attempts, he’s received plenty of accolades this week — the most he’s had since he was an All American at Texas.

Michael Crabtree was a two-time (Fred) Biletnikoff winner in college and the Raiders needed a wide receiver with their first pick of the 2009 NFL Draft.

Gallery has one more hurdle before returning to field

After playing in only six games in 2009, and getting injured just before finishing three quarters of play in game one, Robert Gallery may finally be healthy enough to get back on the field — he hopes for the rest of the season. It would probably help if the Raiders don’t turn the ball over too often.

Tom Cable: I do think we have changed our mentality

You can’t count Tom Cable’s relief of Lane ‘Lance’ Kiffin as his first year as head coach of the Oakland Raiders. While he gets the credit, or blame, for how the season turned out, it’s really what he’s done since going from ‘interim’ head coach to actual holder of the job.

Gallery and McFadden to join Campbell on Sunday

As it stands right now, Jason Campbell will be the starter at quarterback when the Raiders face the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday — but don’t bother asking him about it. Reporters asked the would-be quarterback that question when the Raiders brought him to the podium this morning, but with little information given up.

Jason Campbell makes two Raiders quarterbacks

Jason Campbell was practically run out of Washington when the Redskins beat out the Raiders for the services of Donovan McNabb. Being traded to a perennial cellar-dweller usually isn’t ideal for a starting quarterback — especially if that cellar-dweller has trouble protecting their signal caller.
