Raiders-Eagles game sells out, will be televised locally

The Raiders game against the Philadelphia Eagles sold out, and it will be televised locally, a team spokesman said Thursday.
The game begins at 1:05 p.m. Sunday at the Coliseum, as the Raiders aim for their second straight victory and fourth overall. They won only four games all last season.
The Raiders now have sold out all five of their regular-season home games this season and 20 of their past 21 dating to the start of the 2011 season.
The Raiders can gain a sweep of the Pennsylvania teams with a win over the Eagles. Last Sunday, the Raiders beat the Steelers 21-18 as they improved to 3-4.

    He might need a hug ,might need some Raider love..

    So it’s just all high-fives, bro?

  • eastoaklandraider

    Didn’t i want a guard on draft night dummy we had already signed two former probowlers at db brisel is a bum and so is bergs you dummies are too slow to see that

  • eastoaklandraider

    I wanted a guard on draft night remember?

  • inonewordraider

    Jared allen grew up a raider fan can b had for a 3rd and a late pick per speculation. Would u do it?

  • J Hill

    It’s already over for East.

    He’s in his feeling now calling folks dummies.

    First thing I said is your genius brain wanted a guard at 3.

    And OBVIOUSLY you are still mad about it.

    Our first round picked played 49 quality snaps last game and you’re sitting here crying that we didn’t take a guard at 3.

    The best guard in the draft didn’t play ONE snap all year.

    The 2nd best OG is doing NOTHING to help Tenn and CJ2K.

    The best part about DJ Hayden is that we haven’t talked at all about his traumatic injury this season. Just rookie growing pains like not getting his head around in time, missing a tackle or two, or getting a PI at the wrong time during a drive.

    Biggest issue coming into the draft was whether he could still physically and mentally handle the game, and that’s been resolved. I wasn’t a fan of the pick at the time and still wouldn’t call him a #3 overall, but he’s turned out nicely for us. Credit to DA and Reggie for pulling the trigger on that.

    I question his credibility for other reasons.

  • inonewordraider

    Nevermind deadlne passed, im out of it

  • hwnrdr

    Wow! How did you upset Charlie Rockstar?

  • J Hill

    7. Jonathan Cooper, G, Arizona Cardinals
    Grade: n/a
    Snaps: n/a
    Analysis: Injured in preseason. 2014 will be when he gets to test himself.

    9. Dee Milliner, CB, New York Jets
    Grade: -8.1
    Snaps: 226
    Analysis: Here’s a riddle. Who has more benchings than pass break ups, but fewer benchings than touchdowns he allowed? Of course the answer is Milliner who has endured a very tricky start to life in the NFL, picking up the second-lowest coverage grade of all cornerbacks and being saved on more than one occasion by some erratic quarterback play.

    10. Chance Warmack, G, Tennessee Titans
    Grade: -4.5
    Snaps: 463
    Analysis: While Warmack hasn’t exactly excelled in the run game, he’s been a lot better there then in pass protection where he’s already allowed four sacks, one hit and 14 hurries. Advertised as being a stud from Day 1, he’s only served to show that the gap from college to the pros is more significant than some might think.

    12. D.J. Hayden, CB, Oakland Raiders
    Grade: -3.8
    Snaps: 317
    Analysis: Has been a lot better since missing a frankly ridiculous six tackles versus the Broncos (outside of that he has just one miss). That bodes well and he’s settling into life as the team’s outside corner in their sub-package defense.

  • eastoaklandraider

    I wanted a guard and we still need one you wanted a db and we didn’t need one yes you sound dumb. And did you not call me weak?

  • J Hill

    I said your argument was weak.

    I wanted Star to get my boy B to be on board with this season.

    Of course that’s after Fisher went off the board #1.

    My 2nd choice was Mingo.

  • eastoaklandraider

    Is our oline in shambles just as it was last year?

    Did we not sign 2 db’s that have both been to the PB?

    Some of you like bergs and brisel i don’t we needed guards on draft night and we still do much more than we need a db

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    I’m a little concerned that if Foles and his receivers connect early and score the Raiders will have to play catch-up and I don’t think that’s our strong suit.

  • J Hill

    On draft night, we did not need to spend a 1st rd pick on a guard.

    We had too many other needs.

    I had no idea who Hayden was when we drafted him. Scoffed at the pick.

    But hindsight being 20/20, he has certainly turned out to be a decent pick who is only getting better.

    Makes no sense to me as a Raider fan to trash a guy who is actually playing well because I didn’t get MY way and us end up with Star.

    I’m just not going to do it.

    I was actually trying to be funny but the sarcasm didn’t translate

  • the electrifying dr robert

    East Oak?
    east oak has forgotten more than he’ll ever know?
    east oak knows what I tell him, nothing more, and even then he gets confused.
    in other words, u now have zero cred

  • Charlie

    East Oak is a line disciple as am I and guard is a need.
    We presently have four young lineman that can start in the NFL if you give Bergs the benefit of the doubt.
    Age alone says Brisiel, Barnes, Gurode and Pashos may all be out of the game next year.
    You will not build a super bowl winning line drafting guards in the 7th round and coaching them up.
    Especially when the Chefs have spent 60% of their first and second round picks since 2006 on LINEMAN.
    Not sure where some of you stand on the topic now that RR has disappeared but Reggie is building a tough, balanced, physical football team that will win on the line of scrimmage as I said earlier.
    You may not like it but that is what we are building. We will win 21-10 instead of 48-45 but we WILL win.
    I assure you we will continue to draft lineman in the first three rounds as we did with Watson last April.

  • rifflicks

    an all seeing, all knowing,infallible football mind such as yours admitting an oversight….say it ain’t so

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Warmack isn’t exactly lighting the league on fire…

  • J Hill

    Our Oline was in shambles last year because of a lack of talent.

    This year, it’s because of injury.

    BIG difference!

  • the electrifying dr robert

    u ever wake up in the morning and find a big knot on ur forehead, and wonder how it got there?
    followed by jibberish?
    check ur forehead

  • J Hill

    Not the first time, won’t be the last.

  • rifflicks

    what are you talking about…..Pryor is improving every week and according to some in here can win the game singlehanded

  • rifflicks

    of that, I am sure

  • bcz24

    I don’t care HOW we win. 48-45 looks the same in the win loss column as 3-0.

  • J Hill

    We don’t need 5 first round picks on the Oline.

    Giving Bergs the benefit of the doubt, our Oline is set.

    Veldheer Bergs Wiz Briesel Watson

    We can draft a guard in rd 3 and/or pick up a FA.

  • dplunk

    seems Damn near ALL of the so-called experts in the draft field had,,no;;. seems like they Wanted the Raiders to draft Sharif Floyd…how’s that guy panning out?

  • J Hill

    Feel free to jump in any time instead of side bettin’

  • eastoaklandraider

    Without Terrelle Pryors running yards ate we not last in rushing yards?

    Are we a power running team with zbs guards?

    I would think we need a power guard but hey thats just me. Its sure working for the 9ers

  • 0ak R8rs

    Absolutely nobody has said that here, ever. Not priest. Not missdick. Nobody. Except you now apparently.

  • R8erEduc8er

    So you basically wanted a whole new 22 starters on O and D. Cmon dude, get real. And who knows how
    the O would have performed with a consistently healthy O-line.

  • bcz24

    Relegated to back up on Minnesota’s crappy Dline.

  • The Big Banana

    You may be in the minority here. Many concerned with style points.

  • dplunk

    shm

  • J Hill

    What’s working for the 9rs are there skill players.

    Boldin, Davis, Gore.

  • Charlie

    We will address the Oline need with a high round pick in April. See my post below.
    I can see us drafting Oline Dline and WR with our first three picks, not necessarily in that order.

  • J Hill

    DL
    WR
    OG

  • 0ak R8rs

    Hrm. Not really. One is barely above .500 and probably not post season bound. The other is undefeated.

  • 0ak R8rs

    We don’t draft for need. We draft best available. None of what either of you guys r saying is likely even close to what is actually going to happen.

  • Que

    Darren mcfadden and I’ll get every upset by saying possibly Denarius moore

  • eastoaklandraider

    Brisel and bergs are the lack of talent

  • J Hill

    We will certainly see.

    BPA is determined by the the GMs board.

    He had D J Hayden as a top 3 player on his board.

    NO WAY you can tell me need doesn’t factor in the “board” equation.

  • Raider O

    It does. BPA IMHO means that a team will not reach for a player to satisfy a need.

  • R8erEduc8er

    He’s a #12 overall and also afforded us 2nd round pick. Props to RM.

  • Raider O

    Pass rusher
    WR
    TE/ RB
    S
    OG

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    How would you know this? Bergs hasn’t played this year due to injury.

  • Theghostronin79

    secondary is playing well enough….I think their biggest feat will be having to bottle up “Shady” McCoy….NFL leading rusher against our Defenses strong suit.
