Hiring Mariucci marked the beginning of the 49ers decline. He was followed by Erickson, Nolan, and Singletary. One incompetent head coach after another, and about 15 wasted years.
Teams should fire an incompetent head coach mid season, or immediately following his first season. When Davis decides to fire Allen, either in a few weeks time or during next season, signing the next guy to a one year contract is the way to go.
But it seems like the only time I notice Reece is when Palmer goes no huddle. It's like Palmer knows how much of threat Reece is, and Knapp doesn't. Maybe I'm letting my dislike for Knapp cloud my opinion? I don't know.
All I know is that this offense hasn't hit any kind of rhythm this year. It's big play or bust with a lot of punts in between.

"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
Yes more than likely you'll see the most if not all the coaching staff the same next year. The Raiders are trying to establish some consistancy with the game plan and coaching staff. Knapp, Tarver and Allen will be our coaches next year.

I didn't like it when Hue was fired but when it came to hiring a new HC, I did like the idea of giving a young guy a shot rather than a retread. So to me, Dennis Allen seemed like a good hire at the time. But the contract was way out of whack.
ETA: A one year contract is out of the question. No one would ever sign a deal like that. It has to be multiple years.
This year to me is just done. it seems like the Raiders are waving the white flag, or playing for another hand to be dealt. At this point I am indifferent to Knapp. but IMHO he is not a good o coordinator/play caller. and if he is here and struggles next year? like the people who so vehemently defended Jamarcus Russell. Many people will have the unenviable task of defending him yet again next year... I also believe Knapp will be here next season and not because he has done a damn thing to merit it, but just for P.R reasons and league perception. I hope I am wrong but if he is here next season and the offense struggles like this again? he needs to be gone and quick. JMO Like I said I hope I am wrong, I hope it is like many here vehemently maintain. a change of personnel is all that is needed. but sadly Knapp's past record is against that. Suppose we will have to wait and see. Not sure the fan base will be so patient with another season of a meltdown of this proportion. They damn well better improve and not regress yet again. If they do? I do not want to hear all the excuses and apologies. people will have to bite the bullet and admit they were wrong. just like i WILL DO IF THE TEAM IS IMPROVED AND SUCCESSFUL.
When it comes to being a sports fan there are no prizes for being right and no penalties for being wrong.
