NFL Regular Season Week 10 – The Oakland Raiderettes

The Oakland Raiders hosted their division rivals, the Los Angeles Chargers in another important game…for the Chargers. The Chargers started out slowly and were out gained by 129 yards in the first quarter before waking up and scoring ten points in the second quarter.  From there, the Chargers played just well enough to win against a Raiders team that was over matched and looking for answers on both sides of the ball.  Final score, Chargers – 20, Raiders – 6.

With a 1 – 7 record, the Raiders are in full rebuild mode, but the cupboard seems bare.  It’s time to see who is going to buy into the Gruden project or who is checking out because this season is a lost cause for the Silver and Black.  2019 will be a total rebuild for the team and the franchise.

So let’s take a look at something more promising…the Oakland Raiderettes!  Click here to view the Raiders game day gallery.

 

NFL Regular Season Week 8 – The Oakland Raiderettes

The John Gruden experiment has been an utter failure so far and in Week 8, the Indianapolis Colts were the latest team to decisively beat the Raiders.  Using a strong rushing attack and riding the arm of Andrew Luck, who threw for three touchdowns, the Colts defeated the Raiders 42 – 28.

We all knew going into this season, the Raiders were in rebuild mode, especially after letting perennial All Pro Defenive End/Linebacker Khalil Mack go in free agency.  Most people believed that there was enough left on the roster to be respectable after coming off a 12 – 4 record just two seasons ago, but drastic personnel moves have not panned out this year and the Raiders are reeling at 1 – 6.

I think most Raiders fans hoped that bringing back John Gruden after a more than a decade removed from coaching, would wake up the echoes and return the Silver and Black to a commitment to excellence, but that hasn’t happened…yet.

Tradition is a good thing.  It ties us to our past and guides us into the future.  Exceptional organizations build tradition and foster it.  Vestiges of a glorious past serves to inspire and show us the way to a better future.  And if the Raiders are not quite back to the level of their glorious past, the Raiderettes have maintained that legacy and tradition established by Al Davis and Al LoCasale.

NFL Regular Season Week 4 – The Oakland Raiderettes

On paper, the Cleveland Browns vs the Oakland Raiders may have seemed to have been a rather dull affair between two teams struggling to find an identity and some consistency.  And if you thought that, like I did, you would have been wrong.  This game was another high scoring, close game that went into overtime before it was decided and to top it off, there were some officiating irregularities to add to the excitement.

So to keep it brief, here were the major story lines for the game:

  • Baker Mayfield get his first start for the Browns.
  • Backup RB Nick Chubb rushes for 105 yards and two TDs on three carries.
  • Derek Carr comes alive, throwing for 437 yards and 4 TDs for the Raiders.
  • With the Browns leading and less than two minutes left in the game, the refs blow call and overturn first down run by Browns RB Carlos Hyde that might have decided the game.
  • Raiders Gruden gets first win of the season and his second stint as Raiders head coach.

After the controversial call that stopped the Cleveland Browns from running out the clock, the Raiders promptly moved the ball down the field and scored the game tying touchdown on a 7 yard pass from Derek Carr to Jared Cook.  And in overtime, the Raiders kicked a field goal to end the game, final score: Raiders – 45, Browns – 42. 

With the win, the Raiders improve to 1 – 3 on the season and stayed within three games of the AFC West lead. 

So with the game summary out of the way, let’s take another look at Football’s Fabulous Females, the Oakland Raiderettes.  Click here to view the Raiders game day gallery of images.

NFL Regular Season Week 1 – The Oakland Raiderettes

The Oakland Raiders hosted the Los Angeles Rams on the second game on Monday Night Football and as good hosts, the Raiders were generous in giving up 33 points while only taking back 13 for themselves.  Hey, it was the first week of the new season and I am sure the second Gruden era will be a success as there were moments of optimism for the new look Raiders. 

And speaking of optimism, this was our first look at the Raiderettes of the regular season and they were in mid-season form.  Click here to view the Raiders game day gallery.
