As every Raider fan, I sat with anticipation and waited to see what Raiders GM Reggie Mckenzie would do with his first full draft as the Raiders man in charge . Although I didn’t see the big splash that late former owner Al Davis would make, it did leave me scratching my head just the same. Like many Raider fans I [...]
What up RaiderNation? Welcome to this week’s edition of My Two Cents, with your favorite old Raider fan, Old Timer. Well, it has been an exciting couple of days hasn’t it RaiderNaion? We have had a full compliment of picks so far thanks to some brilliant maneuvering by Reggie and company. While planning to take arguably the best CB in [...]
The 2013 NFL Draft is right around the corner and several mock drafts suggest the Oakland Raiders will be selecting Florida’s DT Sharrif Floyd with the third overall pick.
What up RaiderNation? Welcome to this week’s edition of My Two Cents, with your favorite elder Raider fan, Old Timer. My apologies to all of my loyal readers for having gone AWOL the last few of weeks. I spent a stint in the hospital and came close to getting to meet Al Davis.

If you almost break the Oakland Raiders franchise record for most passing yards in a single season, you’re probably a pretty good quarterback in the NFL.

A trade between Seattle and the Raiders for Matt Flynn is “imminent”. While I don’t doubt that the Raiders have been in trade talks with Seattle, nothing is sure at this time. It would certainly add validity to the possibility that Palmer wants to leave, as a trade for Flynn would cost almost as much as keeping Palmer.
This year the Raiders were awarded a compensatory sixth round pick, or the 205th overall pick. The Raiders are reportedly interested in QB Geno Smith of West Virginia. I believe this is a smokescreen and as I have said before, Smith does not warrant a top pick selection.
Shane Lechler has signed with the Houston Texans, so we come to the end of another era of all pro punters in Oakland. But don’t despair RaiderNation, we are also at the beginning of the next one.
This week, we will take a look at how well I did with my predictions over the last few weeks (or should I say how bad I did! LOL). We will also discuss what has transpired so far in free agency, at least as far as the Raiders are concerned.
I am sure that many of you have been hearing all of the rumors going around that Palmer is going to get cut. There have been articles saying that Palmer has all of the leverage, and he knows if the Raiders cut him, he will be the most sought after QB in FA.
