Corner-ed Market: No need for more CBs, dance with what brung ya’, Raiders

The Eclectic Eleven. That’s about as good a name as any for the group of Las Vegas Raiders cornerbacks. That’s the 11 cornerbacks on the 90-man roster. And there’s chatter and belief that Silver and Black should add more to that mix.  Poppycock! I say. There’s no need for more cornerbacks, dance with what brung …

Derek Carr

Angel And Demon: Derek Carr; Divine Deablo will be Raiders’ offensive and defensive MVPs

Derek Carr and Divine Deablo will be the Las Vegas Raiders’ 2022 offensive and defensive MVPs, respectively. The Raiders’ Angel and Demon will be the most valuable players on offense and defense. That statement isn’t hyperbole or grandiose runaway imagination. The Silver and Black’s quarterback and linebacker each have the football knowledge, physical make-up, guts, …

Tale of the tailbacks: Pecking order at onset of 2022 campaign may not be the hierarchy when season closes

Josh Jacobs the bell cow back with Keyan Drake, Brandon Bolden, and Zamir White flanking him as the backup/specialist running backs. Sounds reasonable, doesn’t it? Such is the luxury of the Las Vegas Raiders right now. While the team is knee-deep in 90-man roster territory at the early stages of the offseason, the Silver and …

Aspuria’s Assertions: The Patriot Way? Nah, it’s the Josh McDaniels Way in Vegas

New Las Vegas Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels learned some hard ass lessons during his initial stint as a head coach with the Denver Broncos. From being an iron-willed dictator to cheating, he failed beyond his wildest expectations of failure during his time on the job from 2009 to 2010. He tried to be what …

Red zone woes? FOH! Raiders’ offense has the makings for a sharp AF unit

The Las Vegas Raiders offense should light up the opposition this season. Scratch that. The Raiders’ offense must light up the opposition this season. Anything less would be pathetic. Now, before I get into this further, I admit the offensive line is the biggest question mark. As it should. The group is slated to be …

Aspuria’s Assertions: Trench Warfare Still Key In The NFL; Raiders Must Be Wary

Watching Aaron Donald in the second half of the Super Bowl was like watching “Stone Cold” Steve Austin hit the ring after the glass shattered during his entrance music to signal an ass-whoopin’ was incoming. Hopefully, the Las Vegas Raiders paid attention. The Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle opened up a can of whoop-ass on …

Staley

Stale(y) AF: Aggressiveness and analytics are great, until they’re not

Brandon Staley is getting cooked. The old guard and the new school are picking sides, roasting him or defending him. It’s a lightning rod of discussion regarding the Los Angeles Chargers’ boy genius and wunderkind. But let me say this about the 39-year-old head coach: Dude went out the Spartan way, of “come back with …

Aspuria’s Assertion: Outcome of tonight’s game changes the Raiders’ trajectory, for better or worse

Fans are experiencing the full-range of emotions with the Las Vegas Raiders slated to engage in a win-and-get-in regular season finale. “We’re two days away from the biggest game in years, please shut up about head coaching rumors.” Boo, fucking, hoo.  The Raiders overcame Jon Gruden taking his ball and going home, the Henry Ruggs III …

Aspuria’s Assertions: Give Raiders Credit Where Credit Is Due

On shenanigans over the course of the 2021 season alone, it was easy to write off the Las Vegas Raiders. The loss of scintillating wide receiver Henry Ruggs III. Jon Gruden taking his ball and going home after he was exposed in ‘Email Gate’. Losing a prime weapon and the head coach should’ve sent the …
