At this point I’m sure we’ve all seen the comments that Broncos safety T.J. Ward made earlier this week about, shall we say, his “feelings” towards the Silver and Black. However, once the game gets underway Sunday night at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, I don’t think the players on the field will be focused on Ward’s remarks, Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree included. Through the first half of the season, both Cooper and Crabtree have shown that they’re in the upper-echelon of wide receivers in the NFL, and I don’t anticipate the bright lights of Sunday Night Football fazing either of them in the least. Let’s not forget, Crabtree has played in a Super Bowl, and Cooper has suited up in a national championship game for the Alabama Crimson Tide. Big players show up in the biggest moments, and that’s what I expect to see from ‘Coop’ and ‘Crab.’
While at the team’s facility in Alameda, Calif, Patterson expressed his excitement to work with wide receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. He shared that both are talented players, and that he is ready to get to work, but is also pumped about the idea of teaming up with the rest of the team’s playmakers.
“I’m just excited to team up with all those guys over there,” said Patterson. “Not just ‘Coop’ and Crabtree; every guy over there. I’m ready to get over there and start working.”

The Raiders signed the explosive return man Monday night, and the former Minnesota Viking didn’t mince words; the presence of Derek Carr, and some friendly recruiting by No. 4 himself, is a big reason why he ultimately decided to sign with the Silver and Black.
We’re a long ways away from actually getting some empirical proof to answer this question, but asking me today, my gut says Jared Cook. Let’s think of it this way; Cook appeared in just 10 games last season with the Green Bay Packers, and in his 10 games, he finished with 377 receiving yards, which is more than any Raiders tight end totaled in 2016. Now preparing to enter his ninth NFL cheap Raiders jerseys season, the veteran tight has consistently proven to be a valuable offensive asset, just look at his 17 career touchdowns for evidence of that. Last season, the Silver and Black boasted one of the most dynamic, high-flying offenses in the NFL, but if there was one area that you could say there was room for improvement, it would be the productivity from the tight end position. Week in and week out, we knew what to expect from Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, but the immediate productivity – at least in the passing game – that Cook brings to the table, is something I think will pay big-time dividends for the Raiders in 2017.
The road warriors were back at it Sunday afternoon, as the Oakland Raiders won their third-consecutive road game, toppling the Baltimore Ravens 28-27 at M&T Bank Stadium.
Wide receiver Michael Crabtree enjoyed a career day in Sunday’s win over the Ravens, hauling in three touchdown passes, but none were more impressive or important than his game-winning score with 2:12 left in the ballgame.
For the most part, the faces are the same, the scheme is the same, and there’s a sense of familiarity that wasn’t surrounding the team just a season ago. That continuity will be crucial for the team heading into 2016 – just ask wide receiver Michael Crabtree.
