Oakland Raiders

OAKLAND RAIDERS HISTORY & INFORMATION

2009 Oakland Raiders Football Preview:

The Oakland Raiders have been somewhat of an enigma the last few seasons. You can count on their fans to show up in force at home games, which generally makes Oakland one of the toughest road games on the schedule. Aside from that it is hard to know what to expect from the Raiders these days. For 2009 it appears the Raiders will still be in rebuilding mode behind their young quarterback, JaMarcus Russell, and a slew of other talented players. The question is whether Coach Tom Cable can get the Silver & Black organized enough to make a run at the AFC West division? Watching the Arizona Cardinals run in 2008 has to give hope to Raiders fans that they too can turn things around, and do it this season. So watch out for the Oakland Raiders in 2009 because they are unpredictable, which makes them a dangerous opponent.

The Oakland Raiders play football in the West Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The Raider franchise was founded in Oakland in 1960 as part of that year’ NFL expansion, which included the Minnesota Vikings. Al Davis has led the team as coach, owner, president, and/or GM for most of the franchise’ history and brought the team to prominence in the late 1970′ and early ’80s, when they won 3 Super Bowls. Al Davis has also become an eccentric icon in the NFL and perfect compliment to the eccentric fans you’ll se at a Raiders home game.

The Oakland Raiders play their home games at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, commonly referred to as Oakland Coliseum, which was opened in 1966 and holds just over 63,000 fans. Attend an Oakland Raider home game and witness the Raider Nation, the hordes of die hard Raider fans dressed in elaborate black and white costumes; dressed as bikers, pirates, and assorted post-apocalyptic football creations. It’ an experience you’ll never forget.
