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.
Arena football: The Shock added quarterbacks Steven Sheffield (in photo) and Casey Hansen to their roster Wednesday after the team had two quarterbacks injured in last week’s win over Dallas. Quarterback Bill Stull joined Kyle Rowley on the injured reserve list, which means both are out a minimum of four weeks.
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. Then a bad afternoon turned downright silly.
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.
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.
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.”
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.
