    I do see a lot of player movement, but they'll keep the same scheme and garbage offense.

    Allen, Knapp, and Tarver have done nothing with this team to merit another year, it boggles my mind why most of you would want to see them return next season; either you love seeing the Raiders suck or you love having high draft picks...I don't know because if they come back we'll see the exact same thing with different players.
    Because the coaching carousel worked so great the past 10 years?
    Don't like me?

    Go have a seat with the rest of the putas waiting for me to give a flying fk.

    Look at the coaches they brought in though...all similar to Allen, none of those except Turner merited a HC spot. Now if that carousel had house hold names on it, then I would agree with you, but as it stands, all of them were pieces of crap coaching wise.

    The Raiders will be buyers in a buyers market for qualified OC's well versed in WCO/ZBS, which was not the case last season, I do not expect the Raiders to make a change until they have an opportunity to talk to somone like Marty Mornhinweg...Greg Knapp was the best option out there last season for an experienced proponent of this scheme, such is not the case this off-season. Reggie will take his typical methodical approach, all the while this forum will implode at the thought that Knapp will be back in 2013 because he is still employed after next monday. The staff that visits the senior bowl should be a good indication to where McKenzie is leaning.

    Uh, Norv didn't merit that HC position more than I did. He got it because he was one of those people willing to coach anywhere. I have a feeling he would have taking a HC postion at Alcatraz, if it was available. The only coaches that wanted this job under Uncle AL were the "ne'er do wells".

    Well my point was that everyone seems to preach the coaching carousel issue, but the coaches we had were no where near HC material, they were really really bad..so why keep them?

    Now if that list had coaches with house hold names then I would be pointing the finger at the carousel but that's not the case, we've just haven't had anyone worth keeping. Allen and Co need to go plain and simple, the team did not improve one bit the entire season...why would I want to see that again?

They would never say it in public but I gaurantee every one of those men knew how out of touch senior Davis had become in running HIS organization. The fact that you actually believe any onther coach would have faired better this year is funny. Mark Davis hasn't made any mistakes but he does have the responsibility of trying to fix the ones that were left behind........and they are many.
    ^^^^^ THIS..... We got what the Raiders from the past wanted... RM is going to be fine... We have a lot of problems the majority of which have nothing to do with the any of the current coaching staff. We're not reloading as it's been said so many times we are rebuilding and that doesn't happen overnight....

    The reason why they sucked was because they were the only ones willing to come here and be put under Uncle Al's thumb. That's why none of the good HC canidates would even want an interview. Uncle Al was his own worst enemy, and he was too blind to see it.

    Correction, olddude. Uncle Al reloaded every year. Except he used blanks instead of bullets.

    Yea unfortunately I would agree with you... But AL had the right formula for a long time but things changed way faster in the last 10 years than Al did... We are on the right path finally time to stay the course. We have so many more changes coming it's just crazy to get too upset. The Raiders are going to look a lot different next season and again in the next season.

    We were stuck with Carson Palmer who has a history of getting everyone around him fired. He leaves the Bengals for 2 seasons, and they make the playoffs both years ( red flag ). Palmer lead the Raiders to 3 points in the first quarter the entire 2012 season, this is an NFL first. Palmer had 2 drives the entire season that were 5 minutes or longer. Palmer hasn`t won more than 4 games as a starter in years. Carson Palmer is finished as an Oakland Raider you can bank on that.

    Jon Gruden has unfinished business in Oakland, he also has no other interest in working for another team, I imagine he would be working if he did. The good people of Oakland would welcome Mr. Gruden with open arms. The Oakland Raiders need a GM who isn`t looking to be tagged a genius, Rm is my humble opinion doesn`t have the smarts to take possession of the Lombardi trophy. I`m not certain who to replace Rm with at this minute, I do not like seeing him and his bobble head twin brother in the sky booth with chicken wing sauce smeared over their faces I know that.

    Mark Davis needs to correct his mistakes, any inexperienced staff would taken those jobs if they were offered.

    Widow don`t be mislead by Snake and the other Palmer supporters, theres no other explanation to support that man in Silver & Black.
    You have a lot of nerve telling real Raider fans who they should listen to.
