Don’t expect Raiders to spend on free agents

If you were to poll Raider Nation on what position the team needs to improve in order to get better, most would probably say that it’s the quarterback position. Wide receiver might give the quarterback answer a run for the money. After that, you’d probably have the stalwarts choosing offensive line and some still hoping for some more defensive help.

Raiders rally around Russell

While the JaMarcus Russell watch continues, that is the watching to see if he’s benched before Tom Cable is fired, the roster in the locker room continues to believe in their leader(s). At least, that’s what they are saying.

While the fan base and the rest of the world can already see that this marriage between Russell and Cable is bound for divorce at some time in the near future, the rest of the team isn’t letting on that they see the same picture. Maybe, just maybe, that’s the problem.

Now, we return to the season already in progress

Now that ‘most’ of the truth is out about the Randy Hanson affair, Tom Cable will now stop answering questions about whether or not he’s worried about going to the big house. Instead of being asked if he’s worried about the Napa County D.A., he’ll be asked if he’s worried about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Javon Walker will play as a last resort

The Oakland Raiders have made some moves of late, but don’t think they aren’t considering more in the coming days or weeks. With the injuries they’ve had to overcome and the different roster moves they’ve made to counteract those injuries, they’ve even lost a player or two that they wish they hadn’t.

Broncos at Raiders: Raider Rants Keys to the Game

The 1-1 Oakland Raiders will take on the 2-0 Denver Broncos at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum today. The Raiders come into the game mired in a passing game slump, while the Broncos are still trying to find a consistent offensive output.

The Raiders waived Louis Rankin in order to promote Jonathan Holland from the practice squad. Holland will be in the lineup as a cornerback and a possible kick and punt returner. Michael Huff will be starting at free safety in place of Hiram Eugene who is inactive today due to a lower leg injury.
