I've started this whole blogging thing daily here on the Raiders community. I will try to organize all of the stories on the Raiders for your convenience. I hope you find this helpful. So, let me start off my blog:

Worth Noting

(From Wednesday) LS Jon Condo will play in the Pro Bowl as a lead snapper.

(From Tuesday) Hue Jackson (Ravens) is presumably interviewing for an assistant position.

(From Wednesday) John Harbaugh and Marc Trestman have told the media they haven't interviewed for the position (through their agents).

Stat of the Day

The Raiders averaged 18 yards a game returning kicks. This is two yards below 31st-ranked Carolina. This is a spot that needs to be addressed.

From Around the Web

Jerry McDonald (Oakland Tribune blog ) recalls past coaching searches .

Monte Poole (Oakland Tribune ) writes that Al Davis the GM is keeping the Raiders down .  

Paul Gutierrez (Sacramento Bee blog ) writes about what could be going on inside of Al Davis' head .

Buddy Nix (Buffalo Bills GM) pokes fun at the Raiders .

Bill Williamson (ESPN AFC West blog ) thinks that the Raiders will take Anthony Davis .

Silver and Black Report reports on Rich Gannon's latest comments on the team

Thought of the Day

This is more like a prediction really. The Raiders will win at least six games next season. They have a fairly easy schedule. The AFC West plays the NFC West and the AFC South. The Raiders will also play a notable game against the Steelers.
