    Raiders return to relevance in the NFL
    Oakland,CA; The end of the 2013 season left the Oakland Raiders short of the playoffs but they accomplished something that hasn't been done for over a decade for the silver and black.....A WINNING SEASON. Nobody except for the men in black and new team owner Thirdalarm had high expectations for this football team, and they didn't disappoint finishing the season at 9-7 in a very tough AFC West.

    Major accomplishments that were achieved by new team owner Thirdalarm:
    #1 Total season home game sell outs.
    #2 Beer prices dropped to $1 at all times.
    #3 A winning record
    #4 a season average BPG over 7.5
    #5 The Raiders are back!!


    Top performers:
    Tyrell Pryor QB- While electrifying the Raiders and quickly becoming a team leader he put up some good numbers despite missing 6 games due to a week 1 injury "THANKS BOB". He still managed to toss for 1,759 yards and 13 TD's with only 9 ints and a 95.9 Rating. Third told the young Pryor when he handed him the keys to the offense that "you don't have to win it for us with every throw, but just don't screw it up". The Raiders have their QB of the future as Thirdalarm had his first ever season in TSO with more TD throws than INT's.


    Darren "RUN DMC" McFadden RB- While missing five games due to a week 1 injury "THANKS BOB" McFadden ran for 1,289 yards and 16 TD's, and will remain to be the focus of this team.

    Denarius "D-$" Moore- Pryor's Go -to guy grabbed 1,200 yards and 7 TD's.

    Team offense- 20 total TD's through the air and 27 on the ground
    Team Defense- 26 Sacks 19 ints #1 pick DJ Haden 6 ints

    The Defense surprised everyone including Owner Thirdalarm with its performance.
    -The raiders have a whopping $79 Million to improve this team in the future.
    -Plan on seeing some very aggressive moves in Free agency by this team.
