Official 2014 Oakland Raiders

Dennis Allen just named Derek Carr as the starting qb. Phone Post 3.0

I have DMAC as my 3rd FF RB. This is good news for me.

All in. Just asking for 8-8, or 7-9, and we can build from that.

Here's to an interesting season.......rrrrraaaaaaaasiiiiiiiidddddeeeeerrrrrrrrssssss

I find it ironic that the Raiders are the oldest team in the league, but they are the the only team to start a rookie QB. Phone Post 3.0

Looking forward to the season. Carr looks promising, hope he handles the pressure ok and stays healthy. Phone Post 3.0

The Autumn Wind is a pirate
Blustering in from sea,
With a rollocking song, he sweeps along,
Swaggering boisterously.

His face is weather beaten.
He wears a hooded sash,
With a silver hat about his head,
And a bristling black mustache.

He growls as he storms the country,
A villain big and bold.
And the trees all shake and quiver and quake,
As he robs them of their gold.

The Autumn Wind is a raider,
Pillaging just for fun.
He'll knock you 'round and upside down,
And laugh when he's conquered and won.

I didn't want Carr to start this year. I thought sitting a year would help him mature. His brother didn't have a chance in the league because of the beating he took his first few years but it looks like Derek has learned a lot from his brother and has all the tools to start now. Phone Post 3.0

So much for San Antonio and Los Angeles. The Raiders could be on the verge of striking a deal to stay put in Oakland.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the team and the city have reached a tentative agreement on the construction of a new home for the Silver and Black.

"I expect it to be executed soon," attorney Zach Wassrman said. Wasserman represents the developers of Coliseum City, a sports, housing and retail complex that would be constructed near the new venue.

The Chronicle characterizes Raiders owner Mark Davis as having final say over whether the arrangement will proceed.

The stadium would be built with funds generated by the Coliseum City project, resulting in a reduced (and possibly non-existent) financial obligation for taxpayers. However, the public would be on the hook for the $120 million still owed as a result of the O.Co Coliseum expansion that brought the Raiders back to town more than a generation ago.

So where does the $120 million come from?

"That's a great question that we will probably not say anything about," a spokesman for Oakland mayor Jean Quan told the Chronicle.

Land also would be transferred from the city at no charge, but the new stadium -- expected to cost between $900 million and $1.2 billion -- would be paid for separately.

It's unclear how this arrangement would affect the A's, who recently signed a 10-year lease to play at a place that will be blown up, sir if/when the deal goes through.

So this one is far from being resolved. But at least it shows that progress has been made to keep the Raiders from leaving town, again.

A new stadium offer has been pitched by Oakland Mayor Jean Quan's development people that would give free land to the Raiders with area taxpayers picking up the tab for $120MM the team owes from the 1990s remodeling of the Coliseum, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Phillip Matier and Andrew Ross. The Coliseum, in turn, would be torn down.

Zach Wasserman, an attorney representing backers of a planned sports, housing and retail complex called Coliseum City, says the "basic terms" of a financial deal have been worked out amongst all of the involved parties. At this stage, the plan is awaiting final approval from Raiders owner Mark Davis. On the surface, it sounds like a very advantageous deal for the silver and black. Anything is possible, it sounds like the odds of the team staying put in Oakland, despite recent flirtations with the cities of Los Angeles and San Antonio, have just improved drastically.

RAIDER NATION CHECKING IN!!!

Excited for the season and I'm happy Carr getting the start!!! Phone Post 3.0
