    etc....etc....

    We were supposed to have upgraded our roster and yet those upgrades are part of a team thats won 4 fewer games to this point. People tend to complicate this debate so lets simplify it. The roster hasnt changed much and most of the players that have changed were considered to be upgrades at their respective positions. Ignore opinions about talent, coaching, scheme, etc...etc.. for a minute and look at it logically

    Same or even upgraded players + Different coaches + Different schemes = fewer wins

    So, if you think this team lacks talent then the only logical conclusion is that the coaching and schemes are the root of the problem because that same talent produced at a higher level previously.

    My point is, if Brandt says Allen deserves coach of the year for winning 4 games with this roster, then shouldnt Jackson win coach of the decade because with the same roster, same bare cupboard and even a few upgrades he won 8 games?
    I agree Palmer is better than Campbell. Streater is better than TJ but we're talking about a 4th receiver here, not a massive impact player. Bartell is not better than Routt and Spencer wasn't better than Johnson, simply because the former guys were healthy and could stay on the field. Wheeler and Wimbley are different types of players. You get more value for money with Wheeler but Wimbley is the better overall player in terms of having a bigger impact. Eric Pears hasn't been on this Raider team since 2009 so i'm not sure what you're trying to say there either.

    As for coaching, i don't think Raider fans are expecting a lot of wins out of any new coach. But it is reasonable to expect some evidence of competent coaching.
    Bad comparison. SF was a playoff caliber team that was underachieving. The Raiders aren't a playoff caliber team.

    Word! It's also his fault that the team moved to L.A. and back. It's his fault that Al (RIP) drafted Jastiffcus, over paid Javon Walker and traded for Moss and Seymour. It's Knapp's fault we hired Callahan, Shell II, Kiffin, Cable and hue. It's also Knapp's fault that world is going to end tomorrow.

People have been taking shots at me since I joined this site and I read personnal attacks towards me on a regular basis. The only thing I will say is grow a thick skin or stay off the internet!
    so you basically created an argument that I never positioned myself in

    i simply asked what made allen a great coach

    and you responded with a smart@$$ comment that was thoroughly unnecessary

    don't worry about my feelings, I assure you I dont give a damn, I'm really just telling you about yourself.

    And Im learning new stuff from POKE now. Apparently when teams get rid of Knapp and the rest of their coaching staff and then bring in new better players so that they get better years down the road (even though they got significantly worse right after Knapp left) its proof that Knapp was the cause of their problems when he was there. Apparently I need to start doing drugs because the posts against Knapp keep getting dumber and dumber and I just cant keep up with them.

It's refreshing to know that people take a great deal of liberty of assuming what I mean... I can promise you if I thought Dennis Allen was great I would have actually said, he was... as always the Raiders fan base over analyzing... Judas F**king Priest!

    To be fair let's not pick and choose partial portions of the conversation... use the entire text.
    dude, just admit you jumped the gun and let it go

    you can't rationalize your response, no matter how hard u tried

    what really happened is you saw my post and you ASSumed I was somebody who thinks DA should be fired

    100% wrong

    own up to it and let it go.

    I don't need stats to tell me knapp sucks, my eyes tell me. Lack of execution? Ok, thats on the players to some degree. They didn't seem to have as hard a time executing last season. Coaches have to correct lack of execution right? We managed to not score a single td against a team worse than us who was barely giving effort! Knapp was not successful how first time around, and isn't doing much of a better job this second time around.

    Also Claps, our defense never had a shut out last season....not even to Chiefs who kicked our ass in the first game and in the second game it literally took a Christmas miracle to win it

    Sorry to call BS on your lousy argument Claps
    whats any of that you posted have to do with the fact this defense has performed worse than last year?

    even with a shut out, we still average more points allowed than we did last year with no shut outs

    do you understand how bad that is?

    my argument is 100% valid.

    I just read that post and responded to it, a lot of these guys have a very selected memory and to listen to them you would think that Knapp came in and destroyed a championship offense. These clowns can't even remember who the last Raider OC with a winning record was. I'll give them a clue Chucky was the HC.
