Here’s a recap of what was written today that you can check out on our new updated web site:

Scan the Raiders roster and there’s a lot of good, young talent. But it’s thin on veterans.

That’s where 32-year-old safety Reggie Nelson comes into play. Nelson’s entering his 10th season, but his first with the Raiders after spending the past six years in Cincinnati. That didn’t stop him from being announced recently as one of the team’s four captains.

“To be voted amongst your peers, that’s a great thing,” Nelson said Wednesday as the Raiders held their first practice of the regular season in preparation of Sunday’s opener against the New Orleans Saints.

Read the rest of that story here: 

Also, here’s coach Jack Del Rio on the reasoning behind placing Mario Edwards Jr. on injured reserve with the intent to bring him back midseason.

Del Rio also reflected on his Superdome memories, which included a botched celebration after returning a fumble for a touchdown.

    Crabtree eh

  • When did people from Oakland become so thin-skinned? So willing to pull the victim card? So damn womanly emotional?
    I do mock that. Because it is kinda funny.
    Dr. Death, Zennie, some guys on here. You guys act like women with this stuff.
    Take a lesson from Bauce and act like a man about it all.

  • “All you hear is the sewer issues”
    Dude that is a complete lie. Why are you doing this?

  • Code debates the facts, passionately.
    No problem with that. He ain’t a flinching dog victim.

  • SB3

    I wouldn’t take any lessons from that dude, and he can come off as pretty whiny.

  • kuhlest

    ANderson plays Panthers
    Henry – Vikes
    Crabs-NOLA
    Decker-Cinci

  • When Floyd Kephardt was doing his thing in Oakland, I talked about that all the time. I was really pushing that thing hard in here.
    The Raiders NEED a new stadium. I talked about the Kephardt plan, I talked about the Carson plan now I am talking about the Vegas plan. If this fails and the Lott thing picks up, I will talk about that plan.

  • inonewordraider

    Crabs for the 1 gm

  • Ken SnakeLer

    I vote Crabs. Worst defense out of the 4.

  • kuhlest

    Overnights: Sources say Skip Bayless’ second show on FS1 posted a 0.07 rating. First Take on ESPN2 posted a 0.32.

    Jerk.. Lol..

  • Dan78

    Crabtree..

  • Dan78

    One Nation baby..

  • inonewordraider

    I was just about to say

  • SB3

    He is what you would call a hack.

  • R8der4evr

    Dakota almost daily
    Maybe not you

  • Certainly not Henry, he will be phased in during the season. Probably only looking at 8-10 touches the first few weeks.

  • I love the Coliseum site, the stadium just needs upgrading.
    Like I said below, I was the biggest Floyd Kephardt supporter on here.

  • SB3

    Most enjoyable non-Raider to watch, Luke Kuechley. The kid is awesome man, future HOFer IMO. He is ALWAYS around the ball.

  • SB3

    Liking the Kings/Raiders mash up profile pic.

  • My favorite non-Raider to watch is either Gronk or Odell.
    Just so much more athletic then the people next to them on the field. Just jumps off the field.
    Kuechly is amazing, but not the jaw-dropping specimen like them. Best MLB in coverage I might have ever seen though. He is like an extra SS

  • SB3

    Weird feeling, the closer we get to game day, the more confident I am in the Raiders being able to pull this off in NOLA.

  • Going to be a great, exciting, close game either way.
    Got to see what the boys have in 4th QTR chutzpah

  • kuhlest

    thats the thing with Brees…even if we are in control for 3 quarters he will make a game of it in the 4th

  • r8dercain

    I’m not whining bout isht..I just don’t talk about it..I’m on record say if they move I’ll support it..but this daily talk of a move is sickening..
    I think you Ned to go back and read all my. Moments regarding this matter

  • New post

  • Dakota

    New post.

  • kuhlest

    well that FS1 network hasn’t taken off either like ESPN…..Colin Cowherd took a pretty big Hit too I think when he switched from sirius

  • SB3

    He has so much range, the area he can cover for a MLB is crazy. Gronk’s size and speed is almost unfair.

    Biggest sleeper acquisition of this offeseason was Bennett to NE. Him and Gronk can be lethal.

  • The daily talk is super annoying.
    But it is the topic of the team right now. Mark Davis was meeting with Las Vegas politicians last night.
    You can collapse the daily Vegas talk and ignore it. But instead sometimes you ATTACK people who simply just want to talk about it.
    Not worth a fight over bro, but I’m not one to ignore a personal insult.
    Enjoy the game and be safe.
