In a recent interview owner Mark Davis stated at this time there are no plans to share the new 49er's stadium that is already under construction and a mere "stones throw" from Oakland in Santa Clara. There are also many issues regarding any possible move to LA and into one of the two new stadiums that are currently under proposal. The Raiders current stadium is 46 years old and beyond renovation that would make it fitting football stadium. So what are the Raiders going to do?

I recently read an update on all....

OK, I know it isn't really Monday Night Football, but it feels like it to me. After all, the Raiders are on ESPN at 5PM on Monday Night for their first preseason game against the Dalllas Cowboys.

It figures that our starting quarterback, Carson Palmer, will see action but probably not much past the 1st quarter. Then it will be our first chance to get a look at Matt Leinart who was signed as a free agent during the off season.

Matt brings a history of success as a college....

Mark Davis brought in a former Raider to take over the....

Raider Blog 
The Oakland Raiders made a franchise changing trade to replace injured quarterback Jason Campbell, trading two high draft picks on Tuesday to the Cincinnati Bengals for Carson Palmer. The trade leaves the Raiders with picks only in the fifth and sixth round in next year's draft.

Coach Hue Jackson paid a high price to acquire a quarterback that he knows well but who has struggled in recent years. He refused to report the Bengals this season despite being under contract through 2014 and demanded a trade. This was a demand that went unanswered. ....

A Legend has passed. Al Davis was the Oakland Raiders. It was his creation, his passion, his team. You have to think that when the Raiders won last Sunday on the last play of the game, Al looked down from the heavens and proclaimed......Just Win Baby!

I think most of us are real proud of the job Hue Jackson has done while coaching the Raiders so far. Just Win Baby.
