    Coaching Grade F

    Coach Allen not making ‘wholesale’ changes; Goethel out for season - Inside the Oakland Raiders - A look inside the world of the highly classified Oakland Raiders from the writers of Bay Area News Group

    "Coaching

    The Raiders secondary looked as if it had never played together before as Flacco passed at will. The Raiders were fooled by a Ravens fake field-goal attempt that resulted in a 7-yard touchdown run by holder Sam Koch. Coming into a difficult road venue, the Raiders didn’t have the look of a team that was prepared to play, and coach Dennis Allen said the responsibility lies with him.

    Grade: F"

    lol the only question i have for those fans stuck with the "al syndrome" is, what is the back up plan that comes with wholesale changes?

    you want to fire tarver, who takes over? would they do a better job?

    You want to fire DA? Does Knapp take over HC duties, you want to start all over again next year... Again?

    You want to cut corners or other positions? You really think the free agents they'll have to pick up off the street are better?

    You want to make a trade? Are the older vets that were available before the trade dead line worth our future for maybe a couple more wins this year?

    My point is, before you make knee jerk wholesale changes, you have to think of the future. This is a year to begin implementing systems and evaluating talent. Next year will prob be more of the same because there will likely be 20 new guys on next years 53. Although its been 10 years of losing, its only been 1 year of rebuilding. Cant blame it all on the coaches.

    I give Allen an I for incomplete.

    Giving him a grade of any type, no matter how low, is giving him way more credit than he deserves for the way this team has looked so completely lost and unprepared most of the season

    Don't you think these are all questions the current management should have asked themselves at the end of last season?

    You want to fire Hue? who takes over and can do a better job. You want to fire our ST coach, who takes over and can do a better job. you want to fire our Oline coach, who takes over and can do a better job. You want to fire our WR coach, who takes over and can do a better job.

    You want to cut corners or other positions like dvd and chekwa? You really think the free agents they'll pick up off the street are better? You want to cut corners and or other positions like Satelle and hire Brisiel for $20,000,000? You really think this free agent off the street will make our Oline better?

    My point is, before you make a knee jerk wholesale change, you have to think of the future. The last two years where the begining of implementing a system. The last two years is what I call a foundation being built. Because Although its been 7 years (not 10) of losing we had 2 years of culture change and we went from losing to avg play. This was the year, 2012, that we were supposed to be winning. The idea of implementing a system and then winning in 1 to 2 years was already in place. That is why the fans are so upset because <b>we are starting over. 1. more. time.</b>

    That said, I like Dennis. it is what it is. We have him now. Let it play out.

    These same threads come up after every blow out no matter who the coach is at the time. Everytime these games happen I become inclined to believe the players are just laying down especially on defense.
