A NEW ERA OF EXCELLENCE: The Raiders enter the 2012 season under new leadership for the first time in nearly fi ve decades. Owner Mark Davis named Reggie McKenzie the team’s General Manager on Jan. 10, making McKenzie the first person to hold the GM title since Al Davis was named Head Coach and General Manager in 1963. McKenzie named Denver defensive coordinator Dennis Allen head coach on Jan. 30.

TRAINING CAMP 2012: The Raiders checked into training camp at the Napa Valley Marriott on July 29. Th is marks the organization’s 17th year of training in the Napa Valley. Th e team will conduct all of its day-to-day football operations in Napa until the team returns to its permanent Alameda facility aft er the third preseason game.

FAMILIAR FOE: Raiders and Cowboys have squared off only 10 times in the regular season, but the two teams have played 27 times in the preseason, with the Silver and Black holding an 18-9 all-time advantage in a series that dates back to 1972. This week’s matchup marks the third time in four seasons that the two teams have met in the preseason and the first time in Oakland since a 31-10 Raider victory in the 2009 preseason opener. The Raiders lead the all-time regular season series, 6-4, with the teams last squaring off on Thanksgiving Day 2009 in Dallas, a 24-7 Cowboys victory.

EXTENDING THE SERIES: Th e Raiders and Cowboys have squared off 27 times in the preseason, making Dallas the second-most common preseason opponent for Oakland. The Silver and Black’s most familiar opponent is the San Francisco 49ers, with the two teams having played 39 times in the preseason. The Raiders and Cowboys played a preseason contest in Oakland in 2009, ending a five-year hiatus, and most recently faced off in Dallas in 2010.

OXNARD TIES: The Cowboys are no stranger to California during the summer months, as Dallas hosted training camp in Thousand Oaks from 1963-89. Th e Cowboys returned to Southern California in 2001, training in Oxnard, Calif. The Raiders’ training camp site was also in Oxnard from 1985-95 aft er moving from the El Rancho Tropicana Hotel in Santa Rosa,
Calif. The Raiders moved training camp to Napa, Calif., in 1996, a year after the franchise returned to Oakland.

NOTABLE CONNECTIONS: RB Darren McFadden and Cowboys RB Felix Jones occupied the same backfield at the University of Arkansas...CB Bryan McCann played for the Cowboys from 2010-11 before signing with the Raiders...S Michael Huff is from Irving, Texas...Cowboys’ recently-signed OL Dan Loper played for the Raiders in 2010...RB Lonyae Miller played four games for the Cowboys in 2010...LS Jon Condo played for Dallas in 2005...Special teams coordinator Steve Hoff man spent 16 seasons (1989-04) as kicking coach with Dallas...Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan served as defensive coordinator for the Raiders from 2004-08...Cowboys’ offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Bill Callahan was an a.ssistant coach for the Silver and Black from 1998-01 and served as head coach from 2002-03...Cowboys running backs coach Skip Peete was an a.ssistant coach for the Raiders from 1998-06...Former Raiders QB Wade Wilson is the Cowboys’ quarterbacks coach...Tight ends coach Mark Hutson was a Cowboys’ third-round draft pick in 1988.

• at Oak. 19, Dal. 13 (Oct. 2, 2005): The Raiders posted the organization’s third straight win in the regular season series against the Cowboys in front of 62,400 fans in Oakland. K Sebastian Janikowski kicked four field goals, including two from 40-plus yards, and RB LaMont Jordan rushed for 126 yards and one touchdown to lead the Raiders.

• Oak. 13, at Dal. 12 (Sept. 27, 1998): QB Jeff George and WR James Jett connected on a 75-yard touchdown strike and the Raiders held off a late charge to edge the Cowboys by one point. A fourth-quarter Cowboy touchdown brought Dallas within three points, and Oakland P Leo Araguz ran out of the back of the end zone to give Dallas a safety but preserve a one-point lead that would ultimately hold up.

• at Oak. 27, Dal. 23 (Dec. 14, 1974): QBs Ken stabler and George Blanda combined to throw three touchdown passes and the Raiders posted a 27-23 victory in the fi rst meeting between the two teams. The win capped a 12-2 regular season for the Raiders that culminated in an AFC Championship-game appearance.

WINNING WAYS: The Raiders and Cowboys are among the elite teams in the NFL, with both ranking among the top-four since 1963 in winning percentage. The Cowboys top the chart with a .591 regular season winning percentage, while the Raiders rank fourth with a .567 percentage since Al Davis was named head coach and general manager in 1963.

HEYWARD-BEY REPLAY: WR Darrius Heyward-Bey recorded his first career TD reception the last time the Raiders faced the Cowboys in a regular-season tilt. On Thanksgiving Day 2009 at Cowboys Stadium, the rookie hauled in a 4-yard pass from Bruce Gradkowski, the Raiders’ only score.

PLAYOFF PEDIGREE: The Raiders’ 2012 training camp rosters includes 15 players that have earned postseason experience during their respective careers. Seven players have combined to be a part of 10 Super Bowl squads and have claimed seven championships.

GLOBAL PRESENCE: The Raiders have always had global appeal, highlighted by websites in six different languages. This year’s roster features a number of players that come from international and multi-cultural backgrounds.

Below is a list of notable players and coaches with those ties:

Player/Coach

K Eddy Carmona: Born in Monterrey, Mexico...Attended high school in Arkansas.

DE Jack Crawford: Born in London, England...Moved to New Jersey as a high school sophomore to play basketball.

Terrelle Pryor a must-see preseason attraction


[pic - click to view]


OAKLAND -- When we last saw Terrelle Pryor at quarterback for more than a snap, he was piling up 336 yards of total offense for Ohio State in a 31-26 win over Arkansas and was named Most Valuable Player of the Sugar Bowl.

In the 20 tumultuous months that followed, Pryor was at the center of a memorabilia for pay scandal that put his school on probation, taken by the Raiders in the third round of the supplemental draft, served a five-week NFL suspension for his college sins and was little more than a lonely spectator for his rookie season.

That ends Monday night when Pryor is expected to get plenty of work as the third team quarterback when the Raiders host the Dallas Cowboys at O.co Coliseum in the preseason opener for both teams.

``I can't wait. It's been a long time for me to play football,'' Pryor said. ``It's what I was born to do. God blessed me. He gave me great talent and I can finally use it again. It's been a long time.''

The depth chart appears set with Matt Leinart backing up Carson Palmer, but Pryor's stunning athletic skills make him a must-see preseason attraction during portions of games where fringe players are f!ghting for roster spots.

Pryor ended a recent k!ll-the-clock drill with a bootleg in which he swept right end. He looked part freight train, part sports car. At 6-foot-4, 233 pounds, he's nearly as big as Tim Tebow and has speed to rival Michael Vick.

It was one of the

few times Pryor has utilized his running skill. Since camp began, Pryor has been dutifully working on his footwork and on executing the offense. Running is a last resort as he learns his craft.

``I'm going to try and perfect the play, go through my reads,'' Pryor said. ``If I keep my feet on time, I'll be good.''

If his feet aren't on time, Pryor's passing can be erratic.

``It's a footwork thing and it's a maturity thing,'' quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo said. ``He hasn't been in this league so it's kind of unfair to compare him to Matt and Carson because he hasn't played as much football or seen as many looks. But the more consistent he gets with his footwork, no doubt the more accurate he's going to be.''

The mantra since the first day of camp from coach Dennis Allen, offensive coordinator Greg Knapp and DeFilippo has been for Pryor to show improvement every day in some area.

Pryor's mission against Dallas is to play with the poise of a professional quarterback.

``We want good huddle procedure, get the play called right, and move the team,'' DeFilippo said.

As a rookie, Pryor's lone snap against Kansas City resulted in his own illegal procedure penalty. He was quiet and withdrawn and admittedly wasn't enjoying himself.

It's been a different Pryor since the offseason began in terms of demeanor. He has watched Palmer and Leinart closely and asked a lot of questions, trying to add to his knowledge while getting limited practice reps.

Pryor said his first choice will always be to make a play through the air -- buying time to throw instead of taking off and running. Safety Mike Mitchell said he'd like to see Pryor run it a little more often.

``We're all fast guys on defense, but if you don't get him in the first 10 years, put your head down and start running,'' Mitchell said. ``He's scary fast.''
