Jon Gruden Is A Broken Man Jon Gruden Is A Broken Man

The Raiders were soundly defeated this Sunday, like most Sundays, and in today’s press conference head coach Jon Gruden looked like his team played. He used to get excited about play-action passes to the fullback and pool noodles. Now he’s visorless and haggard as he announces to the assembled press that the 1-5…

No Flags Thrown After Helmet-To-Helmet Hit On Amari Cooper No Flags Thrown After Helmet-To-Helmet Hit On Amari Cooper

Amari Cooper was taken into the locker room after being on the wrong end of a helmet-to-helmet hit from Seahawks safety Bradley McDougald. On 2nd-and-20, Derek Carr sent an errant throw down towards Cooper’s shins, leaving him in an exposed position to get blown up the way that he did. No penalties were called on this…

Report: The Raiders Are Ready To Start Blowing It Up Report: The Raiders Are Ready To Start Blowing It Up

The Oakland Raiders have been a disaster this season, which should surprise nobody, since they spent the offseason backing up the Brinks truck for washed-up geezer Jon Gruden, trading the best defensive player in the NFL, and completing the saddest player transaction of the summer. Their lone win this season came…

The Raiders Had First-And-Goal At The 1 And Didn't Give It To Marshawn Lynch The Raiders Had First-And-Goal At The 1 And Didn't Give It To Marshawn Lynch

Down 20-3 to the Chargers in the third quarter Sunday, the Raiders put together a 74-yard drive and threatened to make it a two-possession game. A defensive pass interference penalty gave Oakland first-and-goal at the one-yard line. Marshawn Lynch was lined up in the backfield. Yes, this is all very familiar. 

Even In Victory, Jon Gruden Is Haunted By His Dumbass Choices Even In Victory, Jon Gruden Is Haunted By His Dumbass Choices

NFL.com’s Mike Silver wrote up a piece about Raiders head coach Jon Gruden to mark the man’s first NFL victory of the season. The story is kind to Gruden, but it does kick off with a lead that is bursting with schadenfreude:

Bullshit Overturned First Down Helps Raiders Beat Browns In Overtime Bullshit Overturned First Down Helps Raiders Beat Browns In Overtime

The Browns had everything they needed to beat the Raiders 42-34 in Oakland today, but a bizarre and inexplicable decision by the referees to overturn a late Carlos Hyde first-down run gave the Raiders the opportunity to make a dramatic comeback and win in overtime.

Any breaking news about Jon Gruden must feel like whenever a notification block pops up in the middle of the screen while playing The Oregon Trail to Raiders fans, it’s almost never a good sign.

Report: Hell Yes, The Raiders Are Going To Give Jon Gruden More Power Report: Hell Yes, The Raiders Are Going To Give Jon Gruden More Power

The Raiders are bad. But on the other hand, they’re also old. The strangest roster in the NFL is also the most dysfunctionally run, with no one really sure who’s making the decisions. “Some of [GM Reggie] McKenzie’s own personnel staffers,” Yahoo sports reported earlier this month, “were not entirely clear on what he…

Never Mind, The Raiders Actually Want Martavis Bryant Now Never Mind, The Raiders Actually Want Martavis Bryant Now

The Oakland Raiders dropped wide receiver Martavis Bryant 11 days ago, insisting at the time that the guy they traded a third-round pick for on draft night wasn’t released because of a possible drug suspension, but rather because he wasn’t very good and kept missing practice. Now, they’ve taken him back. Bryant signed…

Jon Gruden Says He'll "Look At The Reasons Why" The Raiders Had No Pass Rush Jon Gruden Says He'll "Look At The Reasons Why" The Raiders Had No Pass Rush

The Raiders actually looked feisty in the first half of their season-opener against the Rams last night. There were sparks of creativity on offense, a vintage Beast Mode touchdown, and a 13-10 halftime lead to mark head coach Jon Gruden’s return to the NFL. Everything fell apart in the second half, though, and the…

Maybe Change Is A Bad Thing? Maybe Change Is A Bad Thing?

It was a bad week to be an NFL coach making his debut on their new team. After Jon Gruden’s Raiders decided to allow the Rams to score 23 straight points on their way to a 33-13 loss, new coaches ended the first week of the regular season a combined 0-7, breaking a 17-year NFL record.

Marshawn Lynch Puts Both Teams On His Back For The First Touchdown Of The Gruden Era Marshawn Lynch Puts Both Teams On His Back For The First Touchdown Of The Gruden Era

The soon-to-be Las Vegas Raiders are getting it done early in Oakland thanks to one of the strongest feats of human strength ever seen on a football field. Marshawn Lynch showed he still had some “Beast Mode” left in the tank when he dragged almost the entirety of the Rams’ defense, and a couple of his offensive lineme…

Alarmingly Red Jon Gruden: Khalil Mack Didn't Want To Be Here Alarmingly Red Jon Gruden: Khalil Mack Didn't Want To Be Here

Future former Raiders coach Jon Gruden will make his regular-season debut tonight against the Rams, but because his team will be ass and because erstwhile Raiders superstar Khalil Mack was a beast yesterday, his team’s lunkheaded decision to trade Mack last week will certainly be a constant topic of conversation…

Oh Khalil Mack Got PAID, Paid Oh Khalil Mack Got PAID, Paid

Well, if the Raiders weren’t going to do it, another team would. After trading four draft picks for Khalil Mack, the Chicago Bears signed the 2016 Defensive Player of the Year to a six-year $141 million extension, making him the highest-paid defensive player in league history.

Khalil Mack's Raiders Backup, On This Most Auspicious Day: [Facepalm] Khalil Mack's Raiders Backup, On This Most Auspicious Day: [Facepalm]

With All-Pro defensive end Khalil Mack headed to the Chicago Bears, the Raiders will turn to rookies P.J. Hall and Arden Key to step up along their defensive line. Key, in fact, is in line to nab Mack’s starting job. A promotion! So how is the rookie feeling about this latest roster development?

The Khalil Mack extension saga in Oakland seems to have drawn to an unexpected close. Rather than reach an agreement with their all-world defensive end, the Raiders have reportedly agreed to trade him to the Chicago Bears.
