B/R lead writer for the AFC West and founder of http://RaidersBlog.com.
Have been following the Raiders since birth and has been covering the Raiders and the AFC West for the past five seasons.
I received my degree in broadcast journalism from Abilene Christian University, located in the heart of football country.
My passion for football and desire to cover the sport as a career lead me to use my journalism degree to write in absence of opportunities to use my broadcast background.
I have strong opinions, but I'm not unwilling to change them when the evidence suggests I am wrong. I strive to be impartial in my analysis and engage you with my writing style.

I am sorry Christopher but every word you type about the Chargers has no validity when you write a Raiders blog. You can't be un biased. The Chargers are not going to go 1-5 in the division. Your predictions are comical. Stick to your team and stop writing about the Chargers.
Just read your game by game predictions for the Kansas City Chiefs. Why is it that you have the home and away team backwards on many of the games in your analysis? The Chiefs are on the road at Jacksonville and Philadelphia. You have them as the home team.
As a life-long Raider fan, I must tell you that I enjoy your articles and your analysis, which is clearly a cut above the rest seen on Bleacher Report. The substance of your material is impressive and a reader can see the thought and effort you put into it. It is for this reason that I must ask you this question: Why do you not proofread your articles? I just read "Breaking Down what the Matt Flynn Trade Means for Oakland Raiders", and like so many articles before, it is riddled with grammatical errors and typos. For example: "Like Palmer in 2012, [PALMER] could rack up garbage time yards and touchdowns with the Raiders playing from behind." Really? Palmer could do that this year, like Palmer did that last year? This is a problem that simple, basic proofreading would solve. Don't get me wrong: Most of what I see on Bleacher Report is horrendous - both in substance and in basic grammar and proofreading. Your work does not fall into that category, and is better by far than most. Still: you clearly take pride in the substance and analysis of your articles. I'm just not sure why you wouldn't take the same care and pride in the form of them, ensuring basic grammar rules are observed and typos are avoided. I think you would stand out as a clearly superior writer if you would do so.
Haha you're funny dude.
Can you tell me when teams can start talks with their free agents? By the way. I`m not a Raiders fan but I do agree with the names on your favorites list. I hated them when the Chiefs played them but otherwise they were great.
Great articles, well thought out and supported with facts, logic and common sense. love reading them. keep it up!
Chris love reading your articles, keep going brother!
You shoulde do a report on how every Raiders rookie is looking in camp and grade them. I want to know how they're coming along. Hope I'm not coming off as a bother or anything. Just a curious fan. Please and thank you.
Raiders have Owen Schmidt listed as Running back, I checked a couple sources because he is a fullback, but it looks like the raiders are going to use him as a running back. He is way Bigger than Bush, He is really fast and he is a bulldozer. He likes plowing through players. No one has said a word about him??? Always Jones Mcfadden and fumbly.
