Over the weekend, Kephart’s plan for Coliseum City was absolutely panned by everyone other than Twitter profiles...

The Raiders could deal backup QB Matt McGloin

He’s made the most of every opportunity and every start under center. But Matt McGloin might have more value to another team than he does to the Oakland Raiders.

Rookies make Oakland Raiders’ offense most-improved in NFL
