    DA's stoicism really yanks my chain

    Dude inspires zero confidence pacing the sidelines just taking notes when sh!t is hitting the fan.



    Stoicism works great when you are winning football games. But even the ultimate stoic, Belichick, when he is losing he gets riled up and starts yelling at the coaches and players and gets visibly pissed off.


    DA needs to start getting in people's faces when they are not doing their jobs. DA needs to start acting like a head coach and not some statistician.

    This is about the last thing I worry about, every coach is different. I mean, did this behavior work for Haley in KC? No.

    Tony Dungy was a great coach he never screamed at his players and went crazy.

    I'm going to have to agree. It's not that I want some total drama llama ranting and raving on the sidelines, but I'd like him to give the impression that he actually cares, that it's MEANINGFUL to him. He has not given me that impression, and I'm guessing he has not given the locker room that impression either. Pull-string-on-back, "We gotta execute better".

    Success is equal parts passion and knowlege. While we clearly DO have to execute better, execution without heart and passion falls just as flat in the end as all passion and no brains. The really successful teams out there have both parts, and I think DA lacks the former, or if he doesn't, I at least get the feeling he doesn't inspire it. Similarly, leading is one part knowing where to to lead TO, and the other part getting people to FOLLOW you there.

    I disagree that DA should be showing emotion. On the rare good plays he does congratulate the player who scored, and that's fine. But if he started having temper tantrums at all the bad plays it would only make things worse.
    Really games are won and lost during the teams's practice preparation; including mini-camps, training camp, preseason games etc.... That is the time when good well coached teams learn proper technique and prepare themselves for the season's games. I don't know what the Raider coaches were doing in preseason, or during mid season mid and week practice sesssions, but the players are not well prepared and during a game is not the time to try and do something about it.

    I think what's going on is that fans are angry with their play and want to yell at them and can't, so they want to see someone else do it. It's perfectly natural.

    For all you nerds out there:

    Eh...I'm ok with him being stoic.

    I could use a few "death stares" at some of the players and coaches though.

    We Raider fans have experienced polar opposites of sideline coaching styles. Exhibit A John Madden. Exhibit B Tom Flores. They could not be more different on the sidelines but they were both great coaches and WINNERS! I couldn't care less about a coaches demeanor on the sidelines. If Dennis Allen were winning he could pull that marker of his out of his ass and I would think it was fantastic! But he's not winning so that visor and marker annoy me

    I agree, maybe some more F bombs from DA and Huff wouldnt get beat deep on a 3rd and 11 before half and Myers wont drop a easy TD catch either.
