  • Loper makes Raiders a tough nut to crack in NFL

    National Football League (NFL) teams competing in the next season of the premier professional football league in the planet would be wary with the Oakland Raiders.
    The Raiders management has recently signed guard Daniel Loper to further strengthen the offensive line of the team in the next NFL season.
    Loper who played last NFL seasons with the Detroit Lions wherein he started in five games will add more offensive firepower and depth to the Raiders in the incoming NFL season.
    Before his stint with the Lions, Loper played the previous four years with Tennessee. He appeared in 40 games for the Titans, but did not make a start.
    Loper will be a great help for the Raiders since they only have Brandon Rodd as the only true guard backing up Robert Gallery and Cooper Carlisle before the move.
    The Raiders have several other linemen capable of playing guard, including rookie tackle Bruce Campbell, veteran tackle Khalif Barnes and center
    Chris Morris.
    NFL star for his part is very happy with the opportunity and promised to play harder to help the cause of the Raiders in the next NFL season.
    The way each NFL teams is preparing hard the off-season makes the next NFL season appealing and thrilling to all NFL fans around the world. Buy cheap NFL tickets to support your favorite NFL team live in next NFL Season.

    A Look at the Oakland Raiders

    After finishing at the bottom of the barrel in 2006, The Oakland Raiders enter 2007 looking to turn things around on all fronts and began by firing coach Art Shell in January after just two seasons. The team turned to University of Southern California offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin to take his shot at turning the Raiders around.

    The Raiders were first on the clock in April with the first overall pick in the NFL Draft and selected quarterback JaMarcus Russell out of Louisiana State. Russell turned heads with his play in college, but it may be a while before anyone sees him in the NFL. He has yet to sign a contract and has missed the whole of the Raiders 2007 camp. When a deal gets done, Russell will be way behind the learning curve and will be playing catch-up to their newest addition at quarterback, Daunte Culpepper.

    Culpepper takes the reigns of his third team in three seasons after a dismal 2006 with the Miami Dolphins, playing in only four games and passing for less than 1,000 yards. Prior to the signing of Culpepper, the Raiders traded for Detroit Lions quarterback Josh McCown to add depth at the position. Rams fans will remember McCown from his days with the Arizona Cardinals, when he was splitting time with former Ram Kurt Warner.
    The Raiders offense received a boost in their run game with the addition of Dominic Rhodes from Indianapolis. Rhodes, coming of a championship run with the Colts, will give the Raiders a second option at running back as he will share time with LaMont Jordan.

    Wide receiver Jerry Porter looks for a fresh start in 2007 after various off-the-field troubles kept him off the field until late October of last year. Combined with fellow wide receiver Ron Curry, who was the team’s leading receiver and one of few bright spots in 2006, the pair could make some noise in 2007 if they are catching passes from a healthy Culpepper or a signed Russell.

    The Raiders offensive line was less than stellar last season as they allowed an NFL-high 72 sacks on quarterback Aaron Brooks. Pro-Bowl center Jeremy Newberry will add experience to the line as he comes to the Raiders from their “battle of the bay” rival, the San Francisco *****.

    On the opposite side of the ball, the Raiders showed some promise on defense. Anchored by outspoken tackle Warren Sapp, the Raiders defensive line has the ability to clog running lanes and make life tough for opposing running backs.

    The Oakland secondary is solid despite the loss of free-agent cornerback Charles Woodson to Green Bay in the offseason. Nnamdi Asomugha is a shutdown corner who will be able to account for the loss of Woodson and become a defensive leader on the team. 2006 first-rounder Michael Huff will step into the starting strong safety role opposite four-year veteran free safety Stuart Schweigert.

    The Oakland Raiders have announced that Art Shell will no longer be their head coach. He might remain a part of the organization.

    What is your prediction for this week.......Rams V Raiders WEEK 1 MNF!!!!!!
    by macrammer
    The long wait is over. The Rams take the field for real this coming Monday against the Oakland Raiders.

    These two franchises have only faced each other 13 times . Raiders hold the edge 8-5. The last time they faced off the Rams whupped Raiders 52-0 in 2014.

    Rams have played in 57 MNF contest amassing a record of 26-31. the Rams have played sparingly on this stage of recent. Rams have lost last 5 straight MNF contests.

    This game on paper is all Rams. But the intrigue is the return of Gruden to the coaching ranks. I have felt all along this will be a very hard fought contest. I must say, the Raiders trading Mack should play into the Rams running game hand.

    My prediction is ,,,,,,,,

    Rams 27
    Raiders 16

    What say you?...
