Thursday Raiders

Unfortunately, I’ve missed some time here at 1220 Harbor Bay Parkway, but I was able to make it today. At .500 this late in the season for the first time in years coupled with the end of the Giants’ World Series run, the Raiders have definitely become the relevant news story for the Bay Area judging by the number of reporters in the locker room today.

Among the notables here who haven’t been in the past: Pedro Gomez of ESPN, Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated, and everyone’s favorite Raider Hater — Tim Kawakami. There were plenty of others, but those are the most notable that I haven’t seen yet this season.

Raiders erupt for big win in Denver

“I think a lot of it has to do with just the mentality of how we’re playing our coverage,” said Raiders’ head coach Tom Cable when discussing why the Raiders’ secondary had only two interceptions after playing in six games. On the first play from scrimmage for the Denver Broncos, Raiders corner Chris Johnson jumped a route and intercepted a Kyle Orton pass intended for Jabar Gaffney, then took it 30 yards the other way to put the Raiders on top 14-0 just after 4:24 of play.

Raiders stay the course on day two of NFL Draft

“You’re talking about guys who have had a lot of success, guys who are made through hard work. Certainly, Lamarr coming from the University of Texas, he’s had a lot of success in his career and his program getting a chance to compete for a national championship this year. Those are important things to me, and so as part of it, we do a lot of work as to are they gonna’ come and be honorable and represent this thing right and come with the right attitude. Because, getting good and turning it around, we don’t need knuckleheads.”
