"You can't Appoint, Hire, or Declare Leadership" ~ Sonny Barger
"Al Davis thought all owners were dilettantes with a new toy. He said to me many times through the years that owners are often the problem with their franchises, that too many of them think they can run things when they cannot, and the teams that succeed are the ones where the owner hires the best people he can and turns the game over to them."
I don't think he's burned any bridges with the Raiders, he's made some critical comments but they only stated the truth, unlike Warren Sapps comments which were intended to slander the organization.
It's not the fact that Gannon was a QB that makes him one of my favorite choices for head coach, it's his work ethic and overall leadership. Who knows if Montana, Elway, Marino or Namath would be good at coaching they never went in that direction.
Still, I think Gannon is satisfied with his television gig, he still gets to be involved with the NFL but doesn't put in the 80+hr work weeks.
Harbaugh on the other hand has taken the coaching route and he's establishing himself as a successfull college coach. We all know that being successfull in the NCAA doesn't equate to success in the NFL but he's been a coach with the Raiders, he's currently in the Bay Area.
I see it as having a strong possibility, it just depends on if he feels he's ready to take that next step.
We should hire the top guy first.....Al's got to give in and get a GM to take care of on the field things.
We should be excited that any decent coach would wanna be here at this point in time. If AL wants him , AND AL IS STILL AROUND. I SAY WHAT THE F---!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Sweet, I'll take Harbaugh.
