View Full Version : Can this happen? Is there a chance?

Okay...It has become painfully obvious to anyone that watches football that Al Davis is an old and busted decision maker. Virtually any important decision (Coaching hires, Free Agent Signings, 1st round draft picks) that he has made since 2001 have been, well, wrong. The result is a terrible team.
I know that since the NFL employs revenue sharing, so the lack of attendance isn't affecting his wallet, but theoretically, it could affect the league's over time. Do you think that there is a possibility that someone could talk Al Davis into not being such a hard-headed bastard and hire somebody that knows what they are doing? Somebody that understands that it's not the best athletes that win football now, but a combination of good football players and coaches that know how to use them? It's painful as a lifelong fan to watch this, and I would think it would at least creep into the mind of the league office.
I know I'm rambling, but I'm sick and tired of watching them get stomped by good teams, embarrassed by great ones, and squeaking by the poor ones.

I'm convinced we have the worst coaching staff in the league. A bust at the most critical position doesn't help, either. Only one man to blame, and that's Al.

Like 80 something... his mom lived in her 100's though. So it could be another 10-15 years :(

I dont think I can stand seeing another one of Al's puppet coaching this team. Somehow get Bill Cowher or even Marty Schottenheimer and give them total control of the team. I'll be praying for some kind of miracle....

Damn! it suxz being a Raiders fan!

Al is 80, he can't run this team much longer. Amy Trask needs to do something.
