Oakland Raiders Rumors: Odds Are Stacked Against Dennis Allen

There is no question that after an offseason in which nearly the entire team had been revamped, optimism and expectations were high not just among Oakland Raiders fans, but also with team owner Mark Davis .

Raiders fans, Antonio Smith's 'Ninja Assassin' an ideal match

If ever a fan base and a player seemed to be a perfect match, it would be the Raiders defensive tackle Antonio Smith and the most infamous partisans in the NFL. Smith came out of the tunnel each week as a member of the Houston Texans wearing his "Ninja Assassin'' mask and had a special dance for sacks which included a simulated "slash of death'' and the throwing of "Ninja stars.'

sp0rtsfan86's Chalkboard: The win at Oakland.

So as of right now I'm going to post these here... but hey it's a happy recap as the Jets won... and all is good in the world. Watching the film on Geno Smith's INT was interesting only because either A) Charles Woodson is that damn good at reading a QB... or B) the Oakland DC had a perfect scheme for the play.

MJD, Roach Biggest Injury Concerns For Raiders Heading Into Week 2

Running back Maurice Jones-Drew and linebacker Nick Roach could miss the Oakland Raiders' Week Two game against the Houston Texans at the Coliseum, and that's not good news for the Silver & Black coming off the Week One loss in New York to the Jets. MJD only posted 23 total yards in the defeat, but his presence in the backfield always makes a defense think twice about the play call.

Raiders Defense Has To Be Better In Week 2 If Oakland Wants A Win

It's a testament to the Oakland Raiders defense that they bent so much in Week 1 against the New York Jets on the road without breaking too often. But in the NFL, generally, that's not a recipe for success long-term, and the Silver & Black know this as they prepare for their Week 2 matchup at home against the Houston Texans.
