The Oakland Raiders once had a borderline MVP in Derek Carr. Now, they have a broken man who can’t breathe in the pocket before being smashed. It’s over for Derek Carr in Oakland. The aforementioned statement is a fact that becomes more apparent by the week, as the Raiders’ high-priced offensive line allows a tidal
Derek Carr’s 2018 woes continued against the rival Los Angeles Chargers, as the Oakland Raiders signal-caller even threw an intentionally complete pass on fourth down. When you are trailing 20-6 in the fourth quarter, are facing 4th and 5 and simply chuck a pass into the ground intentionally, it’s bad news. Well, Derek Carr and
Bruce Irvin is set to be available after being waived by the Oakland Raiders, so which contending teams could use him to bolster their pass rush? After trading Khalil Mack and watching him do his thing with the Chicago Bears for a few games, Jon Gruden lamented how hard it is to find pass rushers.
Despite their record and play, Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden is trying to convince us that players from other teams want to join the Raiders. My dad once told me that if you have to explain something, you’re padding the truth. Perhaps Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden missed the memo. Gruden and his Raiders
Martellus Bennett ended a 10-year NFL career this spring, but his comments on Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden may have been his hardest hit ever. In the overall scheme of the NFL universe, Jon Gruden and Martellus Bennett are even in the category of Super Bowl rings, Gruden winning one as head coach of the
The Oakland Raiders are surely taking offers for practically any veteran player, but Jon Gruden insists Derek Carr won’t be traded. Jon Gruden instantly made the Oakland Raiders the oldest roster in the league, with players who would have made up a heck of a team five years ago (Jordy Nelson, Doug Martin, etc.). Then
After yet another trade, Raiders coach Jon Gruden is now starting to lose the trust of his own players. Things were already bad enough for Jon Gruden’s Oakland Raiders. Before the season even started, Gruden traded away Khalil Mack, arguably the best defensive player in the NFL, and received enormous amounts of criticism for it.
The Raiders are in the midst of a total roster overhaul. These five players could still be jettisoned by Jon Gruden before the NFL Trade Deadline. Jon Gruden has already made two of the biggest NFL trades of the season, but there’s a significant probability that the Raiders aren’t done. Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper
The Oakland Raiders are dismantling their team by trading Amari Cooper, but the Dallas Cowboys should press charges for what happened to them. Jon Gruden has taken ample heat for his tire-fire of a tenure thus far with the Oakland Raiders, but on Monday, he finally landed his first big win. After weeks of speculation,
Marshawn Lynch’s injury is really bad news for the New York Giants, and it likely means the Raiders will beat them to the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. At some point, things are going to start looking up for Oakland Raiders fans. Don’t expect that turn to occur before April, though. The
Amid a dismal 1-5 start to his tenure, Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders would be wise to start tearing down sooner than later. The Raiders would see a robust trade market for receiver Amari Cooper if expectations were realistic. One of the least-surprising slow starts to the 2018 NFL season has been the Oakland

The Oakland Raiders showed some hope last week when they started moving the ball effectively on offense, but Jon Gruden’s squad looked just as lost as ever in their Week 5 defeat to the rival Los Angeles Chargers. Jon Gruden is essentially impossible to fire due to the buyout clause in his massive contract, but
After barely surviving against the 49ers last week, the Los Angeles Chargers will welcome the division rival Oakland Raiders in Week 5. It looked like a mismatch on paper, especially with Jimmy Garoppolo (torn ACL) out, but the Los Angeles Chargers survived a roller coaster (trailing 14-6 at the end of the first quarter, leading
Jon Gruden is no stranger to heaping praise on players, but this time he spoke like a man who knows he has job security Reggie McKenzie doesn’t. Even if he’d have you believe it’s not a 10-year deal for anywhere near $100 million, Jon Gruden was handsomely compensated to come back and coach the Raiders.
It took four games, and it came against the Cleveland Browns, but Jon Gruden’s Oakland Raiders finally picked up a win. Last year, the Oakland Raiders dealt with some key injuries, and ultimately stumbled to a disappointing 6-10 campaign just a year after qualifying for the playoffs. The Raiders were in need of a bounce
The Oakland Raiders are 0-3, and the hits keep coming from Jon Gruden, the highest-paid NFL head coach in history. At what point is this clearly a gigantic mistake? Do we have to get through half of Jon Gruden’s contract to accept Oakland making an error of $100 million proportions? If that’s the case, look
Jon Gruden says it’s hard to find pass rushers. If only Raiders had one before his arrival. The Oakland Raiders, or more specifically Jon Gruden, never truly engaged Khalil Mack in discussions on a long-term deal. The impasse ended with Mack being traded to the Chicago Bears on Sept. 1 for a bushel of draft
Raiders fans shouldn’t get too comfortable with Derek Carr being their quarterback of the future. Jon Gruden is already sounding skeptical. Throwing three interceptions in your first game under a new head coach isn’t a great first impression for a quarterback. That’s just what Derek Carr did on Monday night to ruin Jon Gruden’s return
Jon Gruden hasn’t gotten off to the best start as the Oakland Raiders head coach, but he’s hoping that one of the NFL’s best deep threats, Martavis Bryant, can help him jumpstart a passing attack that struggled mightily in Week 1. When he’s at his best, Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is a legitimate MVP
Jared Cook has been an underachiever in his career, but he now holds the same record for three franchises. Jared Cook was the best player on the field for the Oakland Raiders Monday night, as he finished with nine receptions (on 12 targets) for 180 yards in a 33-13 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Jon Gruden is standing firm on his decision to trade Khalil Mack, but we’re still not convinced that this was a good idea. The Oakland Raiders, and in particular head coach Jon Gruden, have come under heavy fire in the last few days after they decided to ship Khalil Mack and a second round draft
Jon Gruden has drastically altered the Raiders roster before he’s coached a game in Oakland. Unfortunately, most of his moves have been disasters. It was clear the Raiders were going to give Jon Gruden a lot of power when they handed him a fully guaranteed 10-year contract to be their head coach. He certainly hasn’t
Khalil Mack has been traded from the Raiders to the Bears for two first round picks, time to understand who benefits most from the trade. Early this morning, Adam Schefter reported that Khalil Mack had been traded from the Raiders to the Bears. It marks the end of Mack’s holdout as the Bears are expected
Oakland Raiders pass rusher Khalil Mack has finally broken his silence about holding out on the game he loves dearly, and it’s a short one. Oakland Raiders pass rusher Khalil Mack is a man who misses football, but not if it doesn’t come with the contract he feels he deserves. Mack is currently holding out
Jon Gruden doesn’t seem to want Khalil Mack, but the Raiders front office has shown they aren’t really willing to trade him at the moment. At the moment, there’s absolutely nothing happening between Khalil Mack and the Oakland Raiders. The team isn’t close to offering him the sort of contract he wants, but that doesn’t
