The moment we didnt promote al saunders and hired knapp i knew we were screwed.
DA not ready... We're worse than ever
I feel that we have to be patient. Give Allen another season at least, let hima and McKenzie figure this out. Rome wasn't built in a day.
^^ Naw, lets get it right, Fire just one more coach and hire Gruden, give Gruden and RM time to work it out.. I feel comfortable letting a proven coach have time than a rookie coach.
Some things to consider :
Bill Walsh and Jimmy Johnson had terrible first seasons. Buddy Ryan had a great first season.
Yeah, I'm grasping at straws. What else have I got left, lol?
Suck it up, people. Dennis Allen returns for the 2013 season, hopefully with a brand new set of skills he learned after a disastrous rookie campaign.
Hopefully, he brings a kick-*** rookie class, a few more thrifty but contributing free-agents and a brand new set of coordinators with him...
*ETA - No, actually, Buddy Ryan had a terrible first season.

I also believe that Knapp and Tarver will stay, the irony is that I really miss Tommy Cable, he was a great OL coach and could really help this transition.
Our defense is horrible and we have a Defensive minded head coach???? he made a huge mistake bringing in knapp, he should of known what kind of talent we had on offense and worked around that rather than trying to install what he wanted. This season is done I am ready to see if TP can become an NFL QB.
amazing Dennis Allen is not only 3-8...but we have looked like a high school team in last 4 games...yet he has 25 votes to Gruden's 32..chucky the most popular raider coach since John madden.....I guess incumbents do REALLY have the advantage.
Peyton Manning's impact on not only offensive production but defensive performance cannot be overstated.
Look at the 2010-2011 Colts defensive efforts if you don't believe me.
That said, Allen did a good job with them in 2011 and would have looked even better in 2012, he would have undoubtedly landed a head coaching job somewhere for 2013.
