    Marginally improved defense? Have you watched the games? Yes we are legitimately contending. Go to the game thread everyone on here still talking like we can make the playoffs without a HC.
    Also we were top10 in power rankings across multiple sites by sport experts.
    They guy just completely rebuilt the team people expected suoerbowl in year 2 of it apparently

    FWIW, I fully expect the season to go off the rails, and it will have nothing to do with them being lost without their fearless leader Jonny boy. This is far too big of a distraction, a black cloud hanging over them all season. Not to mention our previous two games were not impressive at all and teams are likely figuring out just how bad the OL is and how to attack it to crush our run game and pressure Carr.

    I can appreciate and I agree with that @Ed Wang. Not optimistic about this season anymore.

    That’s a bad attitude Hunter.

    We really need to draft better o linemen and go back to the power blocking scheme,it has been our bread and butter for a long time and I think the runningbacks we have now would thrive in it,especially drake.

    Whatever coach we bring in I hope they love power blocking and can spread the ball out more for carr.

    No one coach uses strict power or zone, We used more with Gruden cause he was so by the book with his offense, This past week you saw us be more versatile, And use the power on run plays.

    Season's done? Black cloud? Off the rails? 4-2 with 11 to go. Give it a rest!

    I do not agree with this at all. If anything Gruden was holding things back offensively. We have a very seasoned coaching staff and Bisaccia is up to it. This team may not win the West but I very much expect the Raiders to be in the playoff conversation come December. In other words don't expect a Gruden fade job.

    So if we go, say, 10-7 this year snd make the playoffs… do we hire a coach? Or is that good enough to keep Bisaccia?

    I think I would leave everything as is. Would it be wise to give Derek a new coach and scheme after 10 or more wins? I don't think so.

    With that being said, did you see how many people are picking the Eagles to win? This team must win 10 games, or it will be torn down.

    Can they win 10, are we just homers here? Who knows.

    I feel Jon is a good coach. He just lets his controlling ego get in the way of Captain Obvious staring him in the face.

    I guess you could say he’s a good coach. Definitely a little over rated though. But I do think his name carries some weight to it. So you get a little more cred with him on the team. Or you did, lol.

    But the funny part is his strength was perhaps being able to attract the right coaches to this team. We have some high profile coaches on our staff. Not sure we’d be able to get to the point we are at without him. So it’ll be funny if the team ge help build, wins a championship without him.

    Just like the one he won in Tampa taking a team someone else built. It would be full circle I guess.
