The Pro Bowl is beloved by NFL fans across the globe, and the league’s players often react with joy or disdain at being selected or passed over for the annual showcase. It is, however, a flawed concept, given that every year it appears to be more of a popularity contest, reflecting which team’s fans can register the most votes.… Read more
During the 2020 NFL offseason, the Oakland Raiders moved about 600 miles to the East from Northern California to Las Vegas, Nevada. This promised to open a new chapter in the franchise's long history. This is precisely what they have been able to do thus far, standing out as one of the most impressive contenders for Super Bowl LV.
There are questions aplenty to be answered in our AFC West 2020 season preview...
Then with the 12th overall selection in this year’s NFL draft, the Las Vegas Raiders selected wide receiver Henry Ruggs III, the fastest player in the draft.
Which teams enjoyed the best first round?
Former number one overall pick Jameis Winston is currently slated to hit free agency in lieu of an offer from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Where could the former Alabama quarterback end up this offseason?
Unfortunately for fans around the world the 100th season of the NFL has come to an end and what a season it was. It’s now time for a pivotal offseason.
Voting is in full swing for the 2020 Pro Bowl. MVP contenders Lamar Jackson and Russell Wilson will undoubtedly receive their invitations. Aside from the fanfare this pair are creating, there are some less spoken of names out there that deserve consideration.
The half term results are out for this year's rookie class. As with every year some have excelled, whilst others risk being held back.
All the talk in the lead up to the first of this season’s London series games was about the performance of the Chicago Bears defence four games into the season. Some folks in Bears circles were even talking of what it would mean for QB Mitch Trubisky’s job security if backup Chase Daniel dominated against the Oakland Raiders.
For the second year in a row, the NFL has sent a strong lineup of games to London (less said about the Browns vs Vikings, Kizer vs Keenum blowout of two years ago the better).
Antonio Brown has agreed terms to sign with the New England Patriots, per Adam Schefter on Twitter.
So, the Antonio Brown experiment is over in Oakland. It's fair to say that it really didn't start, but that only serves to make it sound like nothing happened in the six turmoil filled months he was with the Raiders.
On the surface, it looks like the Raiders are all over the place, but there is a method to their madness. Trading Mack and Cooper was a hard pill to swallow, but management knew the Raiders were in no position to contend last year. Rather than commit all that money to Mack and Cooper, they supercharged a rebuild with extra picks, and spread that cap space across multiple needs. After the draft concluded, shortsighted twitter GM’s were quick to mock the Raiders.
With the winners already identified, it's time to focus on the losers of last month's NFL Draft. Looking back we can identify who handled the fanfare appallingly when dealing away players, who got usurped by better franchises and which team downright reached like crazy.
