Spoiler alert: The Raiders will select an ILB with their first pick of the 2017 NFL draft. Yeah I know, Reggie doesn’t value ILB’s highly… Well then why did he select A.J. Hawk in the first round? I heard the same thing about Reggie not valuing Wr’s in the top 10 before he selected Amari Cooper and I still hear he doesn’t value Rb’s highly even though he took Eddie Lacy in rd 2.
As you may have noticed, there was no podcast this week. It wasn’t due to scheduling or illness. Rather, we decided you probably didn’t want to hear two local fans moping over the latest news that our Oakland Raiders are living on borrowed time. In a matter of 2-3 years, the chrome franchise we all love, is leaving to Las Vegas. I feel your pain…and excitement. Let me attempt to lay it all out for you and mend the wounds that are dividing the Raider Nation.
After 3 weeks of NFL free agency the Oakland Raiders have pretty much played it safe. No big splashes, not many surprises.
This week we’re joined by former Raiders’ offensive lineman and the current sideline reporter for the team, Lincoln Kennedy. Lincoln was kind enough to sit down with us and answer some of our questions as well as some of yours. So tune in and find out what he had to say.
This week we’re joined by Raiders’ beat writer Jason Cole. He takes our questions on the Raiders in free agency, stadium rumors, Latavious Murray, and more.
On this week’s episode of the Pillaging Podcast: Aldon back in the spotlight, JDR gets a new contract, and the Raiders’ pending free agent class. All that, your calls, and more! It’s time to Pillage!
NFL outside linebacker Aldon Smith was implicated in a domestic incident that occurred over the weekend. TMZ reported that San Francisco police were called to a home on Saturday morning where they interviewed the (now former?) NFL star and the alleged victim.
Nothing hurt worse than seeing our 25-year-old franchise quarterback suffer a broken fibula on Christmas Eve, in a Week 16 win over the Colts. Should Carr have been passing, with a 33-14 lead and only 11 minutes left in the game? Mark Davis didn’t seem to think so.
On this week’s episode of the Pillaging Podcast: Cain waxes nostalgic, Sheldon pulls out, and the Super Bowl is upon us.
I would be lying if I said the way the rest of the season played out didn’t throw a bit of a wrench into the outcome of this piece, forcing me to redo a good portion of the article. With Cooper and Crabtree having what many would call a lackluster finish to the season for the second year running, and other variables effecting comparable team’s outcomes, I even wondered if this topic was still relevant and worth considering.
