Gruden should have sent in a 330 back-up DT and taken Dildo out at the knees the next time he set foot on the field. That would have evened things up again.
    you know the funny thing about that game...

    we knocked out 10 QBs that season.. went soft that game

    only fail that Gruden made in Oakland!

    San Fran suspended Jacobs for the duration of the season due to his venting on twitter.

    I feel the Raiders should have either done the same or cut him entirely. What he did was significantly worse than Jacobs just venting.

    Not sure how you take this organization serious after this.

    The good decision needed to come before the season. How and why was Knapp even hired as the OC??. I really wish I could have heard the discussion between Allen & McKenzie on that....

    Jacobs is making relatively little, San fran can afford to cut him without an eye to the financial consequences. In hindsight, this guy should have been on our roster this year. We should pick him up.

    It could be worse

    It could be Monday and we could be the Cardinals one day after a 58-0 beatdown. Wow

    i was reading comments about a Jacobs twitter article and the niner fans were all in consensus that they couldn't wait to see him really rot on the Raiders 2013.

    Can you guys stop posting about stuff you know nothing about. You're wrong, Al Saunders does want to be an OC because in the offseason he interviewed for an OC job, I believe it was with KC, and he was turned down. And nobody else has hired him as OC and there is a reason for that.
    Al Davis put Saunders on the staff for veteran support to help Hue as a first year head coach. Its well known that the good and in demand coaches would never work for Al Davis. Thats why we ended up with Saunders in the first place because we couldnt get anyone better.
    Don't assume Al Saunders would get our offense to do what was done last year. That was All Hue, with differrent players, Hues scheme, and better talent. We didn't use Saunders 900 page playbook last year we used Hue's offense.
    I would want Saunders to take over this year only if Knapp was fired during the season, but in the offseason we need someone better than both Knapp and Saunders.

    Bet you are right on this one. I haven't watched Jacobs that much. Just wish we had signed another back in the offseason.

    Funny as heck watching Coughlin go 3 shades of red everytime Jacobs started dancing behind the LOS when he was with the Giants...Guy is a loudmouth as well.Like I said when he decides he wants to play and "bring the wood" he can be a wrecking ball but he goes away far to often imo.

    How much someone is making should be irrelevant. Allen and Mackenzie look like clowns for allowing this guy to be retained on the roster.

    The thing is that Spotrac reports something like 5.5-6 mil in guaranteed money still due McClain. If there is a chance they can recoup some or all of that, then I am 100% fine with them not cutting him now, and waiting until the season is over. I don't know the details of these things, but if there is a chance to save millions in cap for the team, I am fine with that.

    I certainly don't want this guy playing for us ever again.
