"The Greatness Of The Raiders Lies In Their Future"-Al Davis
Historically many of the winningest coaches, excluding Madden and maybe one or two others, had HORRIBLE records their first, second, and sometimes third years. DA was given the keys to the family car, but the tires were flat, someone sugared the gas tank, the windshield was cracked, and it was running on five cylinders. I personally am excited about the state of my favorite team. We get to witness a complete rebuild of management, personnel, and attitude. It is happening NOW.
The coaches we signed to replace the ones that failed last season are experienced, proven coaches. Head coaching and offensive coordinator experience at the OL Coach level, man that is deep. For years we asked for stability, consistency and we are getting it, all the while fixing, in stride, that which is broken. I am going to gladly wait and see what DA is going to give us. RM with full draft picks, money in the bank, and decisions made for the greater good of the team not flavored by one man's opinion. It is a good...no GREAT...time to be a Raider Fan. The good times are blowing our way and our sails shall be filled, for the Autumn wind is a Raider.

agree...but also poor management brings in players that are notoriously bad teammates...ALA..hall and Moss...but weve heard Mac say hes bringing in guys who love the game of football..and when you love what you do..and get around others that love what they do...thats how you build somethin special...we are definately heading the right direction...
I will add to my comment below that the constant turn over of staff and players the team was subjected to over the years did not promote an environment where everyone grew into a family and cared about every little thing about each other. So, Chris Johnson was probably right.
By the time players got to know the coaches and other players, they were getting fired(coaches), or axed(players for the next WR, CB, RB that ran a 4.30)....but you can't teach speed......and speed kills.....yeah, it killed us.....
Well in life its often not how you act, but rather how you react. Good work Fish. I personally like your get to the ficking point! demeanor.
Alot of fans take my opinion and reality as insult or that I'm a "hater," while all I want to is to shut all the ****** *** donkey, bolt, whiner, and chiefs fans up. I'm tires of the ********, and realize we are years away from winning consistently again. I believe as of this offseason, we have the best coaching staff since Gruden, and that will provide us with a competitive team once again. We might not win 8 games, but we will battle and improve on our way back to respectability. The coaching hires prove DA has gained respect. I'm very happy knowing we won't draft two fast db's an two fast wr's this year and will continue to work on our lines for once.
We have the most loyal fans on earth bro and with that comes alot of heart ache and pain.

You spelled wagon wrong and punctuation is a good thing. You will come across better once you learn that.
