Five questions answered about the horribly horrible Oakland Raiders

It’s Friday and that means every now and then I like to put on my ninja suit and slip into an enemy NFL city and learn everything I can about the Seattle Seahawks’ next opponent. This week I flew out of Sea-Tac in a private single engine Cessna and parachuted into Oakland proper under cover of darkness. Once I was there I snuck up on our old frenemy James Arcellana, Managing...

Raiders Mailbag: Where’s Latavius Murray? Biggest team problem? Draft plan? And more

@RaidersReporter with this being the best RB draft in years do you see Oakland using there 2nd or 3rd round pick on a Running Back? — Brian Garner (@TatumsGhost) October 29, 2014 I definitely think it’s possible but I wouldn’t bet on it.

The man had a knack for setting up defenders with a clear run to the end zone after they picked him off. It led to him getting benched and eventually booted out of the city. When he landed in Oakland it almost seemed poetic, but the Raiders got smart and opted to start rookie...
