Broncos Proved Why They’re Worse Than The Raiders On Sunday

Most are definitely talking about Davante Adams cooking Patrick Surtain II. The walk-off 35-yard touchdown catch by the Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver immolated the talented Denver Broncos cornerback in the Silver and Black’s 22-16 overtime win Sunday – and it deserves all-day type praise. The game-winner was a play executed to perfection by Adams, …

Have Fans Seen The Worst From The Ragamuffin Raiders?

Quick! Someone in the Las Vegas Raiders front office should get on the phone with Bret Hart. After all, “The Hitman” was billed as the “Excellence of Execution” during his pro wrestling glory days, and that’s a glaring omission in Silver and Black football.

Outsiders Edge: No One’s Absolved On The Las Vegas Raiders From This Mess

No one on the Las Vegas Raiders deserves absolution from this mess the Silver and Black have found themselves in. Well, except maybe Daniel Carlson. Add in AJ Cole, too. Oh, and I forgot about Trent Sieg. That special team’s battery of kicker, punter, and long snapper, in that order, has done its job admirably. …

Las Vegas Raiders’ execution: Where art thou?

Complementary football was there, then it wasn’t. What gives, Las Vegas Raiders? The Silver and Black showed how the three parts of football—offense, defense, and special teams—work together. This helped them jump out to a 17-0 lead against the Kansas City Chiefs in the very hostile Arrowhead stadium. It was such an outlandish advantage that …

This Is What Happens When The Raiders Do The Little Things Right

Oh snap! Josh McDaniels’ offense can actually look imposing when the Las Vegas Raiders execute. Who woulda thunk it? All jest aside, the broken-*ss record that both Raiders coaches and players spewed since Week 1’s loss up until Sunday’s 32-23 win over the Denver Broncos harped on execution. If only the Raiders executed the plays …
