As for the GM bringing in talent I fully expect RM to do just that over the next few years. I do NOT however get upset with anything he has done thus far. In fact I like what RM has done overall. Letting go of Routt and Wimbley has turned out to be outstanding choices and got rid of two huge contracts for players who have been terrible this year. Brining in Wheeler and Streeter and drafting Burris and Criner looks good so far. Now Briesel and Tollefson have not worked out and bartell and Spencer have both been hurt so RM has missed on some. But with not having a draft pick until the end of rd 3 and having the cap issues we had I have absolutely no issues with any of RMs moves thus far.
And I don't think we have been the laughing stock of the league by any means. Yea this week we are as that was a truly embarrassing game yesterday but that hasn't been every week. Just like last year ( and the last 10 years) we have some good games, some bad games and games like yesterday.
last years team finished 4-6 the last 10 games. At worst this years team is one game off of that and at best we match it. And our offense is only scoring one fewer point per game this year then they did last year.

"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."
"The Media hated Davis because he kept his mouth shut when it counted and didn't bend over to their tactics. Most NFL owners hated Davis because he was a 'them', having worked his way up, and also because he had no problem hiring minorities when no one else would. You can only have so many people saying bad things about you before the sheep believe it...And now, the sheep don't even know why they hate the Raiders, it's just always been that way..." - Sir Pig
what was the question again??

way too early to answer, first of all Reggie had to clean up the cap space. now we have to wait a few years to rebuild with good young draft picks and free agent. it will only get better.
For Christmas I would ask the baby Jesus to grant us that at the end of the year at least don't let us be a league wide laughing stock.
