I hung out with former Raiders coach John Madden today at his man cave in Pleasanton, and the Hall of Famer said Raiders coach Dennis Allen was “playing without a full deck” this season.
Oakland finished 4-12 in Allen’s first year on the job.
“He’s got a ways to go,” Madden said. “He was playing the game without a full deck. To be honest, they don’t have enough players. The cupboard was pretty bare. It would have been tough to do much more than what they did.
“If he’s going to do well, they gotta get a lot more … some teams need a quarterback or a running back, or a pass rusher … The Raiders need a whole barrel of guys.”
Madden watches games in his man cave every Sunday, and a fan will get to see the 16 feet by 9 feet big screen (and eight other TVs) and take a ride on his Cruiser, as part of Visa’s NFL Fan Offers program. Here is the commercial.
I played in the Madden13 media tourney and rode Eli Manning to the title. Who’s got next?
