There was a time when a trip to Oakland California would strike fear in the hearts of NFL fans across the league. That isn't the case anymore. The once proud Raider Nation is a mere shadow of itself and last night in the next to last preseason NFL game for our New Orleans Saints, Drew Brees and company illustrated that point from very beginning. Warning, the video from NFL.com  is rather graphic if you're Raider fan you might want to look the other way as the Saints dismember your team. The final score was New Orleans 40, Oakland 20.

Up next for the Black and Gold of New Orleans is the final preseason game against the Tennessee Titans. The game will be this Thursday evening and you can hear the broadcast on our sister station Sports Radio ESPN 1420. The following Thursday September 8 they play for real when the Saints travel to Green Bay to take on the Superbowl Champion Packers. That game will be heard right here on your home for Saints football through out the season, 97.3 The Dawg.
