2011 saw the Oakland Raiders come within inches of their 13th AFC West crown needing literally just one win in Week 17. The Denver Broncos squeaked away with the title and famously back-peddled into the playoffs only to use up all of their Jesus juice while beating the Pittsburgh Steelers with one of the most [...]

On Friday evening, I was looking at the Broncos depth chart and saw that quarterback Tim Tebow weighs 235 pounds these days.  That’s notable because (a) he has lost weight since his rookie season (236) and (b), he’s a big quarterback.

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.  That has to be the thinking of Oakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer. While in Cincinnati, Palmer played the Denver Broncos and cornerback Champ Bailey three times (2004, 2006 and 2009).  In those three games, Bailey defended three passes (one of which he tipped and was intercepted) [...]

“(The Broncos are) 3-5. They’ve only played one game against a team currently with a losing record. They’ve beaten two division leaders this year. Bottom line? The Broncos have improved; they were in the league’s slums last year, but now are back in the middle class. It’s not where they want to be, but in [...]

Tim Tebow gets by with a little help from his friends. On Sunday, his friends didn’t just “help” — they dominated. Running back Willis McGahee burst free at the very end of the third quarter with a 60-yard touchdown run, totaling 163 yards rushing against the Oakland Raiders. Wide receiver Eddie Royal returned a punt [...]

Houshmandzadeh. [NFL.com] The Raiders will likely be without RB Darren McFadden. [Yahoo! Sports] Willis McGahee and Orlando Franklin were both limited [...]

Roger Goodell should give the Cincinnati Bengals a call.  They just got away with highway robbery. Sitting at 4-2 with a legitimate chance of winning the AFC West this season, the Oakland Raiders lost starting quarterback Jason Campbell for the season and went into panic mode.  After pondering Philadelphia’s Vince Young and Denver’s Kyle Orton, [...]
