It was 1990, and Tecmo Bowl had just come out for Nintendo. I was 10 at that time, and I was living in Lima, Peru, and somehow I had come across a copy of the game. Until then, the only thing I knew of football was that it was played with a weird shaped ball.
BBQ was good.
First time at Arrowhead, nostalgic stadium.
Most of the fans were courteous, and some not so much.
Howdy, folks! Another week in the books and unfortunately another KC beat down. This time on their turf in freezing temperatures. Attempting to quickly put that loss behind us, I decided for this week’s column that I wanted to take what I believe is a well-deserved, in depth look, at several UDFA’s.
When I first saw Reggie McKenzie and Mark Davis in a presser I thought to myself: “This franchise is doomed.” Together they looked like Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.
Hello once again Raider brethren. What a wild ride we have been on this year! I don’t think any of us saw this coming (and if you say did, well then you are lying!). In any case, this ride is far from over. In fact, we are just starting to get warmed up.

The Raiders’ 9-2 record currently slots them in as the second seed in the AFC. They hold a one game lead over Kansas City, who already have a victory over the Raiders in Oakland.
In 1991 the league’s first African-American head coach would lead a silver laden team of football giants to the AFC Championship game. Despite this incredible social accomplishment, the team would go on to be decimated by Jim Kelley and the Buffalo Bills.
Derek Carr is easily A better human being, than he is a QB, and we all know, he’s a damn good Signal Caller.
Welcome to TRF’s Week 13 Edition of Playoff Pontificator. For this go around we will look at all six possible outcomes for the Oakland Raiders, ranging from 9-7 to 14-2.
I became a fan late in the 2008 season after my dad purchased a cable TV service that included ESPN America (known back then as NASN). It was at that time that I was first exposed to college football and fell in love with the sport immediately. But although college football was fun, it was nothing compared to the big boys. So in search of my team, I did what every boy does… ask dad.
