Throughout the regular season the Raiders have demonstrated a moxie which has embraced the “Will to Win.” Week in and week out this team has found ways to win as Mack and the team chant their mantra: BY ANY MEANS. This has proven time and time again to be the belief in the locker room.
Joy to the world fellow Pillagers!
In the final installment of TRF’s Playoff Pontificator we will go through each of Oakland’s AFC Seeding scenarios. This way, you can pick your favorite outcome and root for it to come to fruition this Sunday afternoon.
On this week’s episode of the Pillaging Podcast we talk about the devastating injury to Derek Carr, the playoffs, and more. As usual we breakdown the game against the Colts and look forward to facing our final match up of the regular season.
Finally, we all were watching what we have been asking for: for this year’s Raider team to look as good as they have all year.
We finish the year facing a Colt and a Donkey. Let’s look a bit further at the former and the keys to getting our 12th win of the season.
With a 19-16 victory over the San Diego Chargers, the Oakland Raiders have clinched their first playoff berth in 14 years. Take a breath.
Last week the Raiders six game winning streak came to an end in the bitter Kansas City cold. This week the next six game winning streak hopefully begins.

The Raiders wasted no time in adding a young cog to their blossoming young defense when free agency opened back in March of this year, agreeing to terms on a 4 year/$37-million-dollar deal with linebacker Bruce Irvin during the legal tampering period. For the second year in a row Reggie and company plucked another of Seattle’s Super Bowl winning trio of LB’s to head thirteen hours south and don the Silver & Black.
Soon after posting last weeks Playoff Pontificator, we had some blog controversy regarding my assessment that we had a 99% chance to make the playoffs at 10-2. Well, a week later, very little has changed on that front despite the team’s disappointing loss in KC. Given all the back and forth on the topic last week, I thought it would be good to spend some time explaining how I (and several similar online ‘playoff simulators’) work.
