Raiders face uncertain future after Davis’ death

ALAMEDA, Calif. – The Oakland Raiders will have to replace much more than an owner now following Al Davis’ death. He was the general manager who hand-picked many of the current members of the Raiders. He was the master technician whose football philosophies are still adhered to by the team more than three decades after he coached his last game. He was the iconic figure who turned his beloved franchise into a global brand whose silver-and-black colors are recognized around the world.

In brief: Spokane Shock add two quarterbacks to roster

Little goes right for Seahawks as Raiders roll

OAKLAND, Calif. – If there was any doubt that this wasn’t the Seahawks’ day, it was sufficiently erased late in the third quarter. Before Sunday’s game at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum turned into a 33-3 blowout for the Raiders, the Seahawks were still within striking distance – that is if their offense had been able to move the ball.

Seattle must contend with Oakland’s speed

 OAKLAND, Calif. – They are the most notorious fans in the NFL and they are proud of it, selling T-shirts that testify to their infamy. The Raiders’ Black Hole grew amid the fans in the Oakland Coliseum’s south end zone. It has its own website and branded merchandise, and its members won’t be dressing up just because today’s game falls on Oct. 31. They dress up because the Raiders are playing the Seahawks at home today.

Rebuilding Raiders look to rekindle winning ways

SEATTLE – Oakland Raiders coach Tom Cable is a product of Snohomish, Wash., where he played for one of the state’s legendary high-school coaches, Dick Armstrong. But while he grew up here, he just didn’t grow up a Seahawks fan because by the time the franchise played its first game in 1976, Cable was an 11-year-old who had cast his loyalties.

Guy doesn’t dwell on Hall of Fame

HATTIESBURG, Miss. – After two hours of talking about his life and his days with the Oakland Raiders, Ray Guy turns to a waitress who’s been eavesdropping. “I bet you’d be surprised to know I never used to talk that much when I was younger,” Guy said. “I was bashful.”

Kiffin still rankling Raiders

ALAMEDA, Calif. – Former Oakland Raiders coach Lane Kiffin won’t be receiving a Christmas card from current Raiders coach Tom Cable anytime soon. Not after the manner in which Kiffin lured away assistant offensive line coach James Cregg to join him at the University of Tennessee. Cregg phoned Cable after Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots and informed Cable of his resignation, effective immediately. Cable likened it to quitting on the Raiders.
