    Russell Wilson continues to prove midgets can grow up to be a pro QB

    Amazing job .

    Jeff Fischer is a perfect example of what good coaching and leadership looks like.

    DA and Knapp are perfect examples of what crappy coaching looks like.

    NO way this team should be this awful, that is mostly on coaching as we all know the players suck……

    97. Man.. bad memories.. al hurt me soo bad every draft day.. i know its a crap shoot but dam.. it seemed like al was shooting a dungons and dragons set of dice… loved watching him draft rds 4-7 though.

    All time low if we lose. Today.

    Al missed on 95% on his 1st round picks. You have to get starters from your 1st rounders.

    Al drafted duds, that is why we sux, 10 years of bad drafts = 2012 Raiders!!!

    ————-

    Al has never been good with 1st rounders. That is why he was so effective prior to free agency. He’d often lose his picks because he’d sign away other teams players and lose his picks as compensation or simply trade em.

    Back before the other owners had to pay the players, Al had no problem doing it and that was his greatest asset.

  • Marks hair

    97. Man those are some bad memories.. I know the draft is a crap shoot but watching Al Davis you would think he was shooting a pair of those Dungeons and Dragons dice…. Watching him draft completely destroyed my stomach lining

  • MaddenRaiderisadouchebag

    another gift for the whiners…Jeff Fisher, a million times better HC than T!ts

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Mark Davis is probaly looking at DAVID SHAW stanford coach.

    If Im him I’d offer shaw 5 million dollars a year.

    its better then paying a shyyyt bird like McClain .

    Also better then paying a guy past him prime like Seymour/Palmer top money.

    Go get a legit coach Mark

    Actually, Colin Cowherd once broke it down one time based on what a good GM told him.

    He said all teams in the NFL are basically 8-8 teams.

    - 12 wins means you are exceptionally talented and the ball bounced your way a few times
    - 10 wins means the ball bounced your way a few times.
    - 8 wins means you were pretty much par
    - 6 wins means the ball bounced against you a few times
    - 4 wins means there is a SERIOUS lack of talent on the team, and just 2-3 bad 1st rd picks can do it to you

    By my recap of our draft the last 15+ years. It’s easy to see why we are so bad.

    I don’t watch alot of Stanford or College ball but I see the it factor in Shaw, he is goin to make a damn good NFL coach someday, I just hope it ain’t the Chiefs or Chargers next year

  • 8RaiderReign8

    Another week looking forward to the offseason.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Yep SHAW is calm and composed. He shows that “pride/ poise”

    Plus he has already been on Raiders staff before as well as Harubaugh

  • VanHeathen30

    If this team comes out FLAT AGAIN!
    DA should be locked out of his office and escorted straight to the parking lot after the game.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Da probaly looking over his shoulder and sees Mark again..

    that dude is like sheeeeet

    If Mark does that, it will mean 7 HC’s in 7 years

    Norv
    Shell 2.0
    Kiffin
    Cable
    Hue
    DA
    Shaw

    No quality coach in the league will EVER consider coaching for the Raiders again.

    This is a chance for Mark to show that he isnt Al. Right or wrong, he absolutely has to stay the course. He’s stuck to DA whether you like it or not.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    well lets good some good players so when DA leaves after next year the cuboard isnt bare for SHAW when he comes

  • Raider Riff

    I loved when Willie Shaw was our DC.

    I like David Shaw. I wish we had Gruden back.

    But we cant keep changing coaches and letting these players off the hook. We just cant do it.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    not whether i like it or not. No matter what you or I say.. Mark is thinking of gettin rid of DA

    he doesnt want to though, I mean he is already having pressers after the game, talking to DA on the plane home.

    He is tyring to get something out of DA.. but DA is not making it easy on MARK.. he is making it difficult. Gonna force Mark to do something he doesnt want to do.

  • http://www.raiders.com Raider O

    I don’t care if we win today. I want an elite college player. Imagine if we had the 2nd pick 2 years ago and drafted Suh. 3-13, 4-12, or 5-11? Who cares? I want a high pick at this point.

  • MaddenRaiderisadouchebag

    now the broncos get the calls

  • VanHeathen30

    I’ve said it for months,
    Mark should hire a President of Football ops to come in and be Reggie’s Boss.
    This way Reggie can stay, but not have ABSOLUTE power, cause he’s otproven he is a strong decision maker yet…

  • Marks hair

    Mark didn’t want to get involved but he didn’t want to be the owner of the worst Raiders team in history either…. had to step in.. everyone knows we lack the star talent on d but alot of our problems comes from this lackluster staff..

    LOL! so we should stick with T!ts no matter what even if he it is wrong by your own admission? Hilarious! By this token, WE SHOULD NEVER HAVE FIRED HUE THEN! Sticking with a chump just for the sake of sticking with a chump is asinine…Especially when you’re trying to get a stadium built.

    Yeah, thats what I took away from Pooles article also. he just wants to see some fire some passion from DA and sofar he hasn’t, he made it sound like he had to try it get it out of him or some schit, Mark ain’t feelin this staff and I have a feeling Reggie isn’t either, but they don’t want people to say its the same ‘ol raiders if/when they fire him

    He’s also an idiot with VERY little awareness when he plays. Makes many bonehead decisions and doesnt play smart.

    Yeah, sounds like a Raider alright.

  • Marks hair

    134.. agreed… its often worth tanking games for special players at the top of the draft..

  • VanHeathen30

    Reggie should have NEVER cleaned ouseon the coaching staff without having a replacement in place…
    A little eager to get “His Guys” in place, yet, he didn’t have a Guy in mind…
    Horribly BAD decision making right out of the gate from Big Reg.

    Keep trying to defend the 1984-2011 Raiders ways.

    It’s indefensible. And nobody within the league agrees with you. We have been a joke for decades.

    You are hoping that Mark wants to get rid of DA.

    That’s because it is true.

    He was great in the previous era.

    But once the TV money started pouring in and the NFL became a multi billion dollar business, then big time CEO’s got involved and other teams started being run like professional businesses. Al never adapted.

    Al was the best at being a unique owner doing it his way.

    But that was when he was competing with other owners like him.

    When things went corporate, he did a marvelous job of trying to stay relevant, but he couldnt compete with the corporately run teams.

    Then free agency made it even worse. His business model for stealing up talent from other teams and paying them a fair shake was done.

    He never adapted. He tried, but he didnt.
