    Coach Allen on NFL Network

    A transcript of Raiders coach Dennis Allen on NFL Network A.M as provided by the NFL Network:

    On coaching at the Senior Bowl:

    “It’s fun. It gives us a great opportunity to get a chance to know these guys, not only to get to know them on the football field but it also gives us an opportunity to see what they’re like behind the scenes. That’s the specific advantage that we get in being able to coach these guys throughout the week.”

    On where the Raiders need to improve the most:

    “We’ve got a lot of areas that we have to improve on. Specifically, we have to really work to improve some things defensively to give us an opportunity to play defense the way that we want to be able to play defense. There are some pieces in place. Obviously this year we’re not quite as a hamstrung with the draft picks and the salary cap, so we’re going to have a little more flexibility to make a few more moves and do a few more things to help us from a personnel standpoint with our team.”

    On quarterbacks Carson Palmer and Terrelle Pryor:

    “We’re going to have some competition at that position. Carson Palmer did an outstanding job for us last year. We feel really good about Carson at the quarterback position moving forward, and obviously we want to create competition at all levels of our team; offensively, defensively, in the kicking game. The more competition that you can create, the better your football team is going to be. We’re going to look at that as we’re moving forward, but I feel good about Carson. Terrelle did some nice things in the final game of the season last year, so it’ll be interesting to see how he does as we move forward.”

    On the reaction from the Raiders organization regarding Tim Brown’s comments about Bill Callahan:

    “We’ve been down here in Mobile and I don’t know that I’ve gotten a real sense from the whole organization exactly what the feel is there. I know this: that was a long time ago. I wasn’t here or a part of the organization, so it’s really hard for me to really speak on that and that situation.”

    On the hiring of Tony Sparano:

    “He’s an outstanding football coach, first and foremost. I’ve got some really close friends in football that speak very highly of Tony Sparano, and really when I got a chance to watching, the thing that most impressed me about his time in Dallas, about his time there in Miami is that he always had some tough football teams. That’s the thing that I think he can bring to our team, to our offense, is a sense of toughness. As well as a guy who’s been through it; he’s been a head coach in this league, he’s been a coordinator so there are experiences that he can help us all through.”

    On if linebacker Rolando McClain has a future with the Raiders:

    “Right now he’s part of the football team. He’s on our roster. We’ll let that play out as the offseason goes on.”

    On hiring Greg Olson as offensive coordinator:

    “Greg is an outstanding football coach, he’s a great football mind. Again, when you go through and you talk to the people within the National Football League and guys that I respect, he was a name that continued to come up to me. When we went through the interview process, I was highly impressed with him and just his thoughts and his philosophies about how he wants to operate the offense and thinking about really trying to fit our offensive scheme to doing some of the things that our playmakers do the best. That’s something that I look forward to.”

    On how Greg Olson’s offensive schemes will incorporate Raiders running back Darren McFadden:

    “That’s one of the things that we’re going to look at when we get back to Oakland is we’re really going to look at the things that Darren McFadden does really well and we’re going to try to ask him to do those things as much as possible, limit the times that we ask him to do some of the things that he may not be as good at. All of us as players have strengths and weaknesses, and we want to try to play to our best players’ strengths as much as possible.”

    It`s official Dennis Allen has got to be the dumbest head coach in the NFL, he`s looking for work during or after the 2013 season. Tony didn`t get the accidental Assistant Head Coach tag for nothing.

    Palmer did play great last year. Probably our teams brightest spot. I could tell that he worked hard in the offseason and it showed on game day. He was less flustered even though he had less protection this year. Not that many picks and some unbelievable throws.

    Wrong again. Teams throw that meaningless title around to entice coaches to join their staff. Your witch hunt is beyond comedy.
