Silver Mining 9/11: Jon Gruden launch party takes nosedive

Raiders NewsAmari Cooper is supposed to be the Raiders’ offensive
centerpiece ,
but they couldn’t find him in the loss to the Rams – The AthleticAmari Cooper
had just three targets and one catch for 9 yards. That’s not nearly enough for
the Raiders.Oakland Raiders fear Andrew DePaola has torn ACLRaiders long-snapper
Andrew DePaola is feared to have torn an ACL when he was injured in the first
quarter of Monday night's loss to the Rams, a source said.The Raiders lost Jon
Gruden's first game back. And man, could they have used Khalil Mack. - Chicago
TribuneJon Gruden's return to coaching resulted in a second-half unraveling and
a 20-point loss at home to the Rams. The Raiders had practically no pass rush,

and Black PrideOakland’s next drive ended in one of the most embarrassing
interceptions of Derek Carr’s career. It was truly bizarre as Carr softly lofted
the ball directly to the waiting arms of Rams linebacker Cory Littleton. The
ridiculous moment was made even worse because it came right after another great

Silver and Black PrideA few plays later, with the Raiders at the 10-yard-line,
Marshawn Lynch got the ball and ran up the middle. He went 7 yards before being
met by Rams defenders. But he wouldn’t be denied. With some help from his
friends on the offensive line, Lynch refused to go down and carried the entire
Rams defense into the end zone for the score.Jon Gruden says Khalil Mack
“obviously didn’t want to play here” | Silver and Black PrideThis is a pretty
hardline stance from Gruden, considering that teams rarely let elite players
actually play out their contracts and hit free agency. Quarterbacks and
top-level edge rushers almost never reach the open market. In my view, to say
‘Mack was under contract’ ignores the work that should have been done to extend
said contract.Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch hilariously roasted on Twitter for high

his youth, but the difference between that picture and an image taken today was

for yourself though!Rams reportedly offered the Raiders first and third-round
