Personally, I think Oakland fans are living in a dream world if they think Grad would have meant a few more wins this year. It could just have easily led to more losses than more victories. Teams don't take Oakland seriously when they play them and that is a formula for upsets. If Oakland was a better team, the top teams would take them more seriously, be far better prepared to play them and some of their victories could have easily turned into losses.
The Eagle game is a perfect example of a top team not getting emotionally into the game because they thought the victory would be easy. Normally, if they had taken the game seriously, they crush Oakland.
Fans on losing teams are always impressed by these types of victories when in fact they measure very little about Oakland.
Oakland isn't going to be a competitive team till a real starting QB is found and their WR corp actually looks like something. No doubt Al will sign a veteran in the off season to start for Oakland at QB and might even draft a couple of WR's to improve the WR corp. This is how he has found most of his great QB's. Grad or Frye are not the answer.
And proud of it!!!
