You guys are so quick to judge DA for his hire at oc without giving the OC a chance, and as for Knapp that wasnt DA first choice it was his last.
This staff has EARNED skepticism, and they can also earn respect. Like anyone else on earth.

His chances are better than Gregg Knapps was to begin with.
Knapp came into an 8-8 situation that was 8-8 the year before.
Olsen comes into a 4-12.. Do the math.
More room for improvement and not much further to fall.
4-12 and he gets another year. 8-8 and he gets a long term contract.

For those scorning us for talking smack about the hire before he has even coached a game...his track record speaks for it self, and with it, he should be the one trying to prove to everyone else that he's worthy of being the OC.
Until proven wrong, we have all the right to doubt Allen and McKinzie' decision...After all, Allen did lead us to an outstanding 4-12 record last season.

We don't even have a full staff and we are already doomed lol. This team is still full of terrible players so until that changes I could careless who coaches
We need two very strong back to back off seasons to get the proper players in here. We can't afford big misses with any of our early pics.
Several things still need to fall in place for this organization to get back to the top tier in the NFL.

I dont get the arguing about who hired the coaches. i mean are you guys really that bored? doesnt it make sense that DA and RM sat down together and talked about who it should be. haha i feel like thats the most reasonable idea of how it happened. TO the doom and gloom stuff i know its normal for this forum but come on lets just kick back and see what happens. Lets atleast make it to training camp before we start talking baout guys getting fired already.

Okay. Who would you like to have seen get hired? Because the other coaches oakland had interest in either found somewhere else or turned us down. Let the guy coach a damn game with his new personnel. And idk why but your hatred for DA tells me your a John Gruden guy for some reason. I could be wrong but if you are Olson and Gruden have a connection and it's believed Gruden put in a good word for the guy
This is a question to Carolinaraider btw
I'm not stoked with the hire by any means. This hire gave me a very bad feeling about DA and RM's ability to find a talented OC. These are defensive guys and I have a feeling we will see the benefits of that, along with RM's ability to fin good personel. But I have a feeling the OP is right if he fails.
Just like you shouldn't turn over your HC every year, you can't change our OC as well. If Olsen fails, Reggie needs to find either an offensive HC or a veteran HC that will attract good coordinators.
So yes...if he fails, Allen will probably follow IMO.
That could explain the lack of ability to attract an already successful OC. This crew will make their bones together or probably be replaced together.
I'd rather have them succeed.....
