(Y1) 2012 Preseason The Raiders go 3-1 in the pre-season and are looking pretty good with all the starting positions locked up, the only real battle was in the Tight End position which was one by 2nd year player David Ausberry.
(Y1) 2012 Quarterly Review WK1: Raiders 11 vs Chargers 39 sim loss Wk2: Raiders 31 @ Dolphins 35 Despite putting up good offensive numbers the Raiders would lose after Carson Palmer would throw a pick in the Redzone with less then a minute left. Palmer did have a good game with over 300 yds passing 3 TD's but 2 INt's Wk3: Raiders 28 vs Steelers 21 Raiders get first W of the season despite having a sloppy game turning the ball over 3 Times but luckily 4 take aways and 4 Sacks by Lamar Houston would preserve the Win. WK4: Raiders 9 @ Broncos 17 sim loss Despite the poor start, The Raiders are confident in moving forward as we think we got some good pieces of the puzzle in place we just gotta keep getting better.
WK3: OLB Aaron Curry broken Jaw out 6 weeks WK4: DT Thomas Kelly out 7 weeks with a broken Collarbone
Raiders get contract extensions done with:
SS Tyvon Branch
DE Matt Shaugnessy

Season Recap under construction.......
Offseason 1 Raiders make a huge trade, trading there Franchise player Darren McFadden for a 1st and 3rd rd pick in this years draft. McFadden had a poor year with Oakland and the change of scenery will probably do him some good, and the Raiders hopefully will use those draft picks wisely and help make the overall team better. Free Agent Signings MLB Barret Ruud - Adds some much needed depth to a weak linebacking coreCB Jason McCourty - new #1 corner on the teamCB Captain Munnerlyn - going to be used as the nickel cornerTE Ed Dickson - will replace Ausberry as the #1 TEDT Kyle Love - adding more depth to the defensive line giving us some flexibility in moving one of our stud DT's in the futureLG Chris DeGeare - adding depth to a weak O-lineFS Joshua Nesbit - nice back up for Huff P Chas Henry - new starting punter as we decided to part ways with Lechler next up draft and a 2nd free agent signing
i might go get leachler now and used him as a weapon vs raiders lol
any interest in bringing Michael Bush back? bears are listening to offers
Raiders 2013 Draft Picks
1st Rd 13th pick TE Bryan Zabal (California)
Good size with great hands not overly fast but should catch everything thrown his way, also is a great run blocker
1st Rd 20th pick DT Aramide Yancy (Louisiana Tech)
Great speed and acceleration for such a big man, also has great block shedding, tackling and pursuit which should help bolster the run defense
2nd Rd 13th pick DE Shaynon Newman (Pittsburgh)
Prototypical DE at 6'5" 275 lbs with great acceleration should be a great pass rusher
3rd Rd 13th pick CB Ladarius King (Penn State)
Has good speed and acceleration but needs to improve on his man and zone coverages, will have a chance to battle for the nickel CB position
3rd Rd 20th pick HB Josiah Harris (Navy)
Great speed and acceleration, most likely will only contribute as a KR in his first year
4th Rd 13th pick HB Quinton Caro (Minnesota)
Just a depth player, not eally sure what CPU was thinking with back to back HB's
5th rd 13th pick ROLB Ryan Grosso (Rutgers)
Another depth player that will see limited snaps his first year
6th Rd 13th pick LE Andrew Wells (Stillman)
7th Rd 13th pick SS Quayshawn Eaves (Dartmouth)
Raiders are looking to Move DT Richard Seymour, he is under contract at 7mil a year for i think the next 3 years
