I would have rather had a young mind from the college ranks. I at this point, have no expectations. I did not quote the TB fan who posted on page 2, but he gave a rather unbias account that leaves me thinking this is Greg Knapp all over again. Again, who knows I will continue to support RM and DA since they do seem to be building an organization that puts character first. I will support those changes even if I disagree with some of the coaching decisions they make.
We knew(or should have known) as soon as Knapp was gone that meant the ZBS was gone too, that shouldnt have surprised any of you guys.briesel should be gone too, although his suregury worries me that he may get a pass as "playing injured". His salary alone regardless of his ability to play the PBS would promt me to cut him, he had no Guarenteed money for 2013 so I think he can be let go for nothing.
Carlisle didnt to terrible in the PBS, but hes as old as dirt, My preference would be to bring in three new players but something tells me we will be lucky to see one knew addition to the line in 2013.
I dont like wis @ center.Moving him back to guard and brining in a bigger player @ center would give us a dominant LT side to run to when we really needed a yard or two.
This Hiring says one thing if you look at his resume.
those are wide open offenses...we will need an upgrade at RT. Tackle, becasue we are going to see what we should have seen in 2012, Carson palmer in 5-7 step drops and shot guns, throwing 15+ yards down field to recievers getting to the deep middle and down the sidelines.
DHB will be back I am suspecting, although I dont like his contract, it looks like reggies is going to play out this hand of cards(contracts) till 2014.]
Seymour will sign for more then hes offered here, DHB,Dmac,Branch,Huff,and possibly kelly will all be back, and after we see what a new systen does for those pieces, we will get the complete genocide if we finish in the toilet again.
Wouldn't you say that the SF stint was built off his predecessors. And in Atlanta his only successful season was 04 and it declined the next two season and i owe much of that success to the many broken plays by Vick than Knapps great play calling. Seattle in 09 wasnt great and we all know both stints in Oakland was a disaster. Not sayin Olson is gonna be better but what makes Knapp better????
If he can rework this offense to suit Darren McFadden then I would be very happy indeed because anything is better than Knapp. It's the O-line that worries with me. What are we gonna do with Bergstrom, Briesel, and Carlisle? They are all ZBS linemen.
Let me try to explain fishes stance on OCs like he said there is 3 types.
1. A position coach(most likely Qb sometimes OL, rarely anything else) who is an up and comer and gets hired(keep in mind any OC in the league has to come from this, they all started as a new play caller some time)
2. A former HC who was better suited as a coordinator and is well regarded in that role and gets a quick job(norv turner)
3. Retreads- this are guys that get picked up after failing somewhere a couple seasons back- for example knapp.
What fish is trying to say is Olson seems like he falls in number 3. To he person who said this is what you wanted, no fish wanted a number 1 type. I did as well names are Aaron kromer(ol coach saints: now oc in chicago) or joe Lombardi(qb coach saints) as an example. Number 2 is ideal but the raiders aren't in position to get that. Hopefully Olson breaks the retread trend
I guess you are perpetuating the notion that Raider Fan's are illiterate.
lol, wtf are you talking about? Calm down kid, just giving you a hard time. Someone is uptight! Don't get ur panties in a bunch. Just seems like no matter what decision is made it is wrong in your eyes. But I have yet to hear some names you would have liked to look at. You might have somewhere else, maybe I got it mixed up with all your complaining about who NOT to get.
