Chucky lighting the flame then later mark Davis has a heart to heart with DA and RM, about regression ( you think him might be implying knapp sucks.)
I want a Coach who actually has head Coaching experience. Not no Rookie Coach.
This team needs a leader.
IMO D.A is not the answer, i think he lost this team

"Why can't we tell the world that [as the Raiders' coach] you refused to play games in the segregated South, holding out to the point where they were canceled?' And he would stop me dead in my tracks and say, 'Hey, kid -- I didn't do it for publicity. I did it because it was right.' "
With all the offers Gruden has received from so many teams it may be difficult to get him back to Oakland. What? He hasn't had a single offer from any team? Really? Golly I wonder why.
The NFL is about cash, not Championships.
Gruden =`s a lot of cash
Allen & Co =`s a lot of empty seats very soon.
We demand a smart football team, yet we`re stuck on 1 + 1.
EVERYONE has said for years this same ****ing thing. "Can we get Gruden? What about Gruden? Hey! You know this guy named Gruden? They even used to call him 'Chucky'. How about some more Chucky in the hole??"
Even when Al was here people were out of their mind not just saying "I'd love Gruden back" but suggesting it possible.
"Hire Gruden, Fire Allen?" this is one of the lamest threads I've ever seen on any Raiders forum. I'm not sorry to call it like it is.
How about a thread like, "Fire Knapp, set him on fire?"
That would at least be entertaining.
I say keep allen, fire Knapp and hire Norv Turner, and if you can get Rex Ryan on for cheap id do that too. If raiders fire Allen they sure in hell better have Sean Payton on his way, but I wouldnt fire him for Gruden, Gruden was a good coach but he is very overrated, Bucs beat us because they had our playbook, and they where a great defensive team.
even though i'm a supporter of Allen i will say this. If we lose out and and keep looking as bad in the second half of games then i'll have second thought about this. RM just has to make sure if he does make a change and say bring gruden that he doesn't give personnel powers to him. Gruden has proved he isn't a good evaluator of talent, he has proved hes a pretty good coach.
If we loose out, knapp must go, not Allen. He deserves another year and a roster that does not give up and players with high football IQ's. Statistically our defense is better, and that's with our DT's playing hide and seek, McClain blowing it, and the entire secondary getting hurt. It's hard to place blame, but personally I start with the players.
hire gruden but is not going to happen
No more firing coaches after one year. It is one of the things that has killed our franchise. We can't get respectable coaches because we fire them after one year and never let them hire their own coordinator and run their schemes.
No matter if you hate Allen the best thing for Oakland long-term is to stop the madness of the past decade. This was always going to be a true rebuilding process. Stop thinking one year at a time. RM and Allen need time to clean up the mess in Oakland before we can even judge them.
Gee, why don't we just beg John Madden or Tom Flores to come back, they took us to Super bowls.
