“Our guys want to be really good. They’re hungry to play well. They’re playing hard...we’ve just got to clean things up and they’ll be a whole lot better,” said Raiders coach Jack Del Rio, referring to the inability of the Raiders first-team defense to stop the running game in their first two preseason games.

About This Blog


Andy Furillo has been a reporter with The Sacramento Bee since 1991. He covered mostly crime and punishment until April 2015, when he began writing a sports column. He believes art inspires in many forms: a Jerry Garcia guitar solo, Van Gogh's "Starry Night," and Madison Bumgarner's five innings of masterpiece relief in Game 7 of the 2014 World Series. Sport is art, and sport is fun, and it is filled with interesting people. Furillo hopes to bring out the best of it all. Contact Andy Furillo at afurillo@sacbee.com or 916-321-1141.
