The 2019 season is coming to a close and the Raiders are faced with some difficult decisions headed into Free Agency. This week we discuss who’s a potential cap casualty and which unrestricted free agents likely to return and those who are free to walk.
The Raiders closed a chapter in Oakland and the 2019 season in controversial fashion. In a game with many ups and downs, the Raiders had every opportunity to win it in the end. In many ways, this final game in Denver was a direct reflection of the season as a whole. The Raiders flashed and showed their potential, but failed to live up to it when all was said and done.
Week 13 is in the bag and the Raiders fall 9-40 in Arrowhead. It’s been 7 years since the Silver and Black have won in Arrowhead. Somebody grab a tourniquet and apply pressure. While the AFC West is out of reach, a Wild Card spot is still within reach. Pillage with us as we recap the ups and downs from week 13.
The Silver and Black haul in a victory amidst adversity and revenge in London. The Raiders vs. Bears provided a multitude of story lines to follow in this game. Khalil Mack, the Raiders record in international games, a bevvy of injuries, Carr against elite defenses, so on and so forth. But in Raiders fashion, Jon Gruden and the rest of the men in black found a way to stay in it until the very end in a game that epitomizes the old Al Davis credo: Just Win Baby!
Yet the season still feels so far away. The Pillagers are here to get you through with another Raiders Podcast. There’s plenty to talk about despite a slow off-season. Kenny and Che take to the Crow’s Nest to discuss Jacobs’ pending holdout, Cooper’s comments, stadium delays, and much more.
The Oakland Raiders came out with a victory against their long-time rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Shunning critics and silencing all talks of a tank season, the Raiders showed up with a chip on their shoulder and victory on their mind. The Pillaging Podcast was there to document it.
