Not a chance Norv will return. If Allen wanted to sell what Turner is peddling he would have employed Saunders to a greater degree or not hired Knapp at all, instead promoting Saunders to OC.
If I were king for the day I would find a way to hire Bobby Petrino to call the plays.
0 to none!
While I would like to say Zero, Zilch, Ort, etc. However realistically it's probably 50-50. It depends on how stubborn RM and Dennis Allen are. Are they determined to prove the fan base and the media wrong or will they admit defeat and switch directions.
On one hand you gotta give a guy some time.
On the other hand, didn't Knapp get time before?
IDK where you go from here. I mean, DA is not an offense guy. How do you even begin to find a good coach, let alone a great one?
If you fire Knapp, you'd be tearing things completely apart to start over a year after you tore things completely apart to start over. Comes a time you not only lose the team, you lose your way.
If you fire Knapp, you may as well fire Dennis Allen as well.
"Just Win Baby!"
-Moore's super raw route running/running style
-DHB's lack of catching ability
-Hagan might be the best WCO receiver we have in terms of being able to catch things like a 5-yd slant.
-DMAC can't run
-Palmer's a down-the-field guy
-Everything about Jacoby Ford
You have to have players that fit your offense. Look at SD as a prime example of players that do and do not fit an offense.
-Meachem is not a physical WR that will go up and attack the ball. Royal is even less physical.
-Malcom Floyd, 6'5 with pretty good hands and hops, despite being an avg NFL talent, leads the team in WR categories.
-Danario Alexander, undrafted in 2010, then cut by the Rams this year, comes off the street and in less than 3 games already has produced more than Meachem and Royal combined for the whole season.
However, a rift between the offense and the defense worked out well for this team, but not as well for this one.
RAIDERS. ARE. BACK.
I hope Knapp will be gone, im thinking 65/35 he goes at this point unless the offense somehow catches fire at the end of the season.. Whomever the new OC is; I hope they come from the GB/PHI WCO school with longer pass routes that will fit better with this receiving corps. The WCO isnt about dink and dunk per se, it depends who's running it..
Personally I would still like an up and comer from the NO staff.. Carmichael isnt leaving to be another OC but maybe one of the other coaches on that staff.
[B]New York Yankees 27 World Championships.....need I say more?
Oakland Raiders 3 Super Bowl Victories/rest of the AFC West 3 Super Bowl Wins
I would say he is a lock to return next season

I'm not saying the ground was completely level....just moreso. Teams with solid foundations both on the field and off still enjoyed advantages, but to a lesser degree than we'd normally seen.
I believe the success we enjoyed at the beginning of last season was a mirage.
Knapp will be out lookin in
Now in terms of Knapp....I can't see why we even brought him in...it's like using a blood hound to guard the sheep...or a german shepard as a lap dog.....even a toy poodle as a rabid pit fighter....Knapp's offense if just not a workable machine with the tools we have on our team!
