TRF’s Week 16 Playoff Pontificator© – Pillaging Just For Fun
Word to your collective Mothers on this special Holiday Edition of TRF’s Playoff Pontificator!As some of you may have heard or read, Tuck (and Family of Tuck©) were thwarted by Mother Nature once again this past weekend.  The first time was in Oakland during the October Deluge which ended in a soggy, disheartening loss to the Chiefs.  This time, I couldn’t even get close to the final destination of San Diego.Late Friday, and well into Saturday, the mile-high snow fell at a fast and furious pace.  As a result, our entire family was stranded at Denver International Airport for almost 24 hours.  While this was a personal disappointment, our resplendent team adorned in silver and black did not disappoint.With yet another dramatic comeback win under their belt, the Oakland Raiders managed to secure their first playoff berth in 14 years.  Given that reality, many of you may be wondering why bother having any sort of Playoff Pontification this week.Well, I’m here to tell you that that type of wondering would be wrong; there is plenty to Pontificate on!In this Edition, I’ll dive into exploring our possible paths forward.  I will also look at how our AFC West foes are doing on the playoff front.  What they need, and how likely they are to get there.With no further ado, lets begin by looking at our own situation as we head into week 16…To use a baseball parlance, our magic number is two.  That is, any combination of Raider victories and KC losses totaling two gives us the Division title, a home game, and a much-coveted week off once the post season begins in January.Right now, here are the Raiders’ odds for each of the six NFL playoff Seeds: Seed 1: 20%  Obviously in this scenario the Raiders win the AFC West, which means that they met the “magic number” of 2 as it relates to KC.  In order to grab the top spot, Oakland must also win at least one game and (at least) equal the W-L record of the Patriots.  With the top seed, the Raiders would have home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Seed 2: 47%There are several ways Oakland can get to the magic number of 2.  One option includes winning out. In which case it won’t matter what KC does in Weeks 16 and 17.  The Raiders could also lose out and still grab the number 2 slot.  However, in that case, the Chiefs would also need to lose their remaining two games.  A record of 1-1 could also work, so long as KC follows suit (or loses both contests). Seed 3: 2%There is only one way this can come to pass.  Here both Oakland and KC lose out while the Pittsburgh Steelers win their final two games.  Yeah, probably not… Seed 4:  0%Not happening.  The best the AFC South Champion can do is 10-6.  We have already 11 games under our belt. Seed 5: 32%After Seed 2, this is the most likely (but clearly least desirable) outcome for the Raiders.  In this case, the team doesn’t meet the magic number of 2 threshold and KC wins the West. Seed 6: 0%Like Seed 4, this is impossible.  If the Steelers finish 11-5 ,they win the AFC North title.  The best that Baltimore (Pittsburgh) can do in a Wild Card slot would be 9-7 (10-6).  The Broncos can’t do any better than 10-6 at this point.  What about Miami?  Miami can finish at 11-5 but they lose to Oakland via the NFL’s number 3 Wild Card common games tiebreaker (5-0 vs. 3-2).Well there you have it, our Seeding possibilities in a nutshell.  As the numbers show, Oakland is most likely to finish at the #2 slot, followed by #5 and then #1.  I for one would be quite content with a #2 Seeding.  The top slot would be gravy but not a deal killer if we don’t achieve home field throughout.  Besides, having NE at #1 leaves open the grand possibility of a snow rematch in Boston.  What a sweet way to finally end the “Tuck Rule Curse.”As a Pontificator bonus, lets take a quick look at our Division rivals’ playoff situations.Up first, KC… The thing that jumps out at you with KC is that they still can miss out on the playoffs.  Is this likely? No, of course not but looking at their remaining games (and their propensity for faceplanting at the worst possible times) it makes me wonder, just a little.The specifics as it relates to the Chiefs playoff picture…Week 16 Win (vs. Den) and in Still in with a loss and… A Steelers win over the Ravens  Week 17 (assuming they are not yet in) Win (at SD) and in If Dolphins lose at the Bills (in Week 16) then…KC still gets in with a loss at SD and … A Ravens loss at the Bengals ORA Dolphins loss vs. the Pats ORA Steelers loss vs. the Browns If Dolphins win at the Bills (in Week 16) then…KC still gets in with a loss at SD and … A Ravens loss at the Bengals ORA Steelers loss vs. the BrownsDenver’s situation is much more dire.In fact, right now at 8-6, they have a 17% chance of reaching the post season.  (In comparison, the Chiefs’ odds still sit at lofty 98%.)  In addition, the Broncos’ path is rather complicated given that they are jostling with 8 other teams that could potentially take the one slot that is still open to them (Seed 6).  Capturing the Division is impossible for the Broncos.  Even slot 5 is unattainable given that they lose all tiebreakers with KC at 10-6.  Nevertheless, they are alive and their odds range from 6-8% with a record of 9-7 to as high as 51% if Denver wins out and goes 10-6.  Rather than dive into the myriad of possibilities, I’ll simply look at how Denver could get eliminated after this week’s games.  If by chance Denver’s playoff heart is still pumping come Christmas night, I will delve into their possible pathways once Ken Stabler Raiders Jersey we have a handle on Week 16’s final outcomes.The Playoff  Picture for Denver going into Week 16: The Broncos cannot clinch a berth under any circumstance… Denver CAN be eliminated with a loss at KC and… A Dolphins win vs. the Pats ORA Ravens win at the SteelersAs awkward as it is to type, we as Raiders fans should be rooting for a Broncos win this weekend. The silver (and black) lining here is that Denver will be incredibly desperate for a win and should make life tough for the Chiefs this week.  While there is no question that watching the reigning World Champion Broncos get eliminated would be enjoyable, seeing the Chiefs hand us the Division title and a bye on a Christmas day silver (and black) platter would be even more satisfying…  Raider Santa anyone?Even with a win in Week 16, the Broncos are still likely to find a lump of coal in their Christmas day stocking.  At best, they will almost assuredly need to beat us in Week 17 not to mention receive a significant amount of outside help just to get a seat at the playoff table.No matter how you slice it, Raider fans are looking at a very Merry Christmas this year.

Official Oakland Raiders Derek Carr Jersey

As expected, the procedure has been completed, but the prospect of a 6-to-8 recovery timetable has inspired thoughts that Carr could be available for the Super Bowl, if the Raiders were to reach the season-capping contest in Houston under the direction of quarterback Matt McGloin. Optimistic parties should put those thoughts to bed, though. Per a discussion between Dr. Nick Grosso, president of The Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics, and the Bay Area News Group, the notion Carr may be ready for game action in six weeks is untenable. “There will be six to eight weeks minimum for healing and [the] Super Bowl will be over by then,” Grosso said. After that initial period, Carr will still need “an additional four to six weeks before he can play again because even once the bone has healed the soft tissue around it also needs to be adapt and remodel itself. But he could be training and even throwing again in three months.” With that knowledge, Carr is a great candidate to take part in the entire offseason program, just not Super Bowl LI.

Carr was born in Fresno, California, the youngest of three children to Rodger and Sheryl Carr. He and his family lived in Bakersfield, California before relocating to Sugar Land, Texas, in 2002 when his oldest brother, David Carr, became the first overall draft pick of the then-expansion Houston Texans. Carr and his family moved back to Bakersfield for his senior year, and he attended Bakersfield Christian High School.

Carr’s high school football career began at Clements High School in Sugar Land, Texas. After playing on the freshman team his first year, he became a backup quarterback on the varsity team as a sophomore. He didn’t prepare himself to become the starting quarterback, but a preseason injury to another quarterback thrust him into the role.

Carr made gradual progress as a starter with Clements High School. He passed for 1,246 yards and 12 touchdowns as a sophomore, and 1,622 yards and 16 touchdowns as a junior. While a junior, Carr led his team to an undefeated 13–0 season (playoffs included) before losing in the quarterfinals of the 2007 Class 5A Division 2 State playoffs in Region 3 to the (also undefeated) Katy High School Tigers, the eventual champions. Also during his junior year, Carr was heavily recruited. His college choices included Fresno State, SMU, Boise State, the University of Southern California, UCLA, and Utah. Of these schools, only Fresno State, SMU, and Utah made a scholarship offer towards Carr. Ultimately, he verbally committed to Fresno State on May 25, 2008, at the end of his junior year. Carr was the program’s first recruit of the 2009 class.

In 2008, Bakersfield Christian High School athletic director and former NFL player Doug Barnett confirmed that Carr would transfer to BCHS, amid rumors that he would have gone to nearby Stockdale High School or Bakersfield High School, two schools with historically good football programs.

As a senior, Carr led the Eagles football team to a 12–1 record and the California Interscholastic Federation Central Section Division V championship; the only blemish came at home against Oaks Christian High School, a national football powerhouse, during the team’s season opener. On October 29, 2008, Carr was selected by ESPN RISE as the National Football Player of the Week after passing for 441 yards and three touchdowns in a game against Tehachapi High School five days earlier.Carr would eventually set a Central Section record by throwing 544 yards in a win against Arvin High School on November 7, 2008.Carr was also selected by The Bakersfield Californian as the 2008 All-Area Football Player of the Year. Derek Carr also set a new school record when he passed for 6 touchdowns and ran for 2 in a blowout win against small school Fowler High at home. After the game, reporter Mark Whaler asked Derek, “How did things click so easy?” Carr replied with, “It was like playing a video game. When a person sets their attributes to 99 all the way around, you can pass and run all over the team. Today just felt like a video game against Fowler High.” After his high school football career finished, Carr was named the National Player of the Year by the National Private Schools Athletic Association in 2009.

Carr married Heather Neel on June 29, 2012. The couple have a son named Dallas (born August 5, 2013) who was born with a medical condition that tied up his intestines and required three surgeries to correct.The couple’s second son, Deker Luke Carr, was born on March 16, 2016.

Carr self-identifies as a Christian, and has said his faith is the most important thing in his life. He has tattoos on his wrists, the left citing a verse from the Biblical Book of Jeremiah and the right depicting a Chi Rho.

Carr’s brother, David, was the first overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft. Carr’s uncle, Lon Boyett, played for the Raiders during the 1978 season.

Carr grew up a Dallas Cowboys fan.

Halfway through last season, Carr seemed to be enjoying a second-year breakout, posting six top-10 fantasy weeks in his first nine games. But he did not sustain that success and faded badly. Over the final seven weeks, he averaged an 18th-place weekly positional ranking and cracked the top 10 just once. His rate stats weren’t much better than those in his rookie season–his average depth of throw remained at 7.9 yards, and he posted a higher interception percentage and missed his target more often. But he threw 11 more TDs than in 2014, due largely to an improved supporting cast. Carr’s receivers generated 5.3 yards after the catch in 2015 after managing only 4.3 the year before. Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree and Clive Walford are all back with an added year of experience, so Carr should have enough weapons to sustain QB2 production.

The Oakland Raiders are a professional American football franchise based in Oakland, California. The team commenced operations in 1960 as a member of the American Football League (AFL); they are currently members of the National Football League (NFL), which merged with the AFL in 1970. The Raiders currently belong to the Western Division of the NFL’s American Football Conference and play their home games at the Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum. At the end of the NFL’s 2015 season, the Raiders boasted a lifetime regular season record of 444 wins, 397 losses, and 11 ties; their lifetime playoff record currently stands at 25 wins and 18 losses.

The Raiders’ on-field fortunes have varied considerably over the years. The team’s first three years of operation (1960-1962) were marred by poor on-field performance, financial difficulties, and spotty attendance. In 1963, however, the Raiders’ fortunes improved dramatically with the introduction of head coach (and eventual owner) Al Davis. In 1967, after several years of improvement, the Raiders reached the postseason for the first time. The team would go on to win its first (and only) AFL Championship that year; in doing so, the Raiders advanced to Super Bowl II, where they were soundly defeated by the Green Bay Packers.

The Raiders’ run of success intensified during the 1970’s. From 1970 to 1977, the team won six division titles and reached the AFC Championship Game six times. In 1976, the team captured its first NFL Championship with a convincing victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl XI. After narrowly losing the 1977 AFC Championship Game, the Raiders missed the playoffs in 1978 and 1979; in 1980, however, the team unexpectedly captured a second Super Bowl championship with an easy victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl XV.

In 1982, amidst much controversy, the Raiders relocated to Los Angeles. The team finished with the NFL’s best regular season record that year; one year later, the Raiders crushed the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl XVIII to capture their third (and, to date, last) Super Bowl championship. The Raiders’ fortunes declined considerably following the 1985 season; they would win just one division title (1990) and two playoff games from 1986 to 1994.

In 1995, the Raiders returned to Oakland. After several years of continued mediocrity, the team entered a brief period of pronounced success in the early 2000’s. From 2000 to 2002, the Raiders won three consecutive division titles and four playoff games; their renaissance culminated with a lopsided 2002 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl XXXVII. The Super Bowl loss marked the beginning of a lengthy period of futility for the Raiders; from 2003 through 2015, the Raiders failed to post a single winning season or clinch a single playoff berth. In 2016, the Raiders finally ended their postseason drought with a victory over the division rival San Diego Chargers; as of Week 16 of the 2016 NFL season, their record stands at 12 wins and 3 losses.

The Raiders are known for their extensive fan base and distinctive team culture. Since 1963, the team has won 15 division titles (three AFL and 12 NFL), three Super Bowl Championships (XI, XV, and XVIII), four AFC Championships (1976, 1980, 1983, and 2002), and one AFL Championship (1967). Fourteen former members of the team have been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
