    Just a thought

    Isn't it kind of crazy that the Oakland Raiders hired Lane Kiffin who is a 31 year old up and coming coordinator in the major college ranks. Kind of makes you appreciate we were able to get a coach that has the same background, is roughly the same age, and came from a similar college program.

    Nah, it just shows you how messed up the Raider organization is.

    I am glad we got Chizik though.

    The raiders have had pretty good coaches. The organization needs new leadership IMO.

    But who cares about the raiders...the Bears are in the Super Bowl!!!

    I subscribe to Sporting News and this picture was on the front cover last week:




    Also had this pic in the article:




    The article was mostly about the Raiders and some other franchises (like the Knicks) who are in bad shape and need a shakeup with the people at top calling the shots if they every want to be good again. Really hit on Davis living in the past and not realizing that the franchise needs a new face to turn things around.

    Re: Just a thought

    Da RAAAAIDERS have a history of hiring young coaches (perhaps because no one with experience wants to coach there) and they have had success, but working for Davis has to be frustrating. The Raiders have a nice defense, but need some serious help, not just on the field but the locker room as well. Kiffin sounded very robotic at the press conference the other day.

    Re: Just a thought

    Al Davis had every intention of tanking the Raiders season this year to get more draft picks. Why else would he bring in Art Shell to be Head Coach when he already hired and fired him once. I like Art Shell, but he had to know he was only going to last a year. The Raiders organization is in shambles. Al Davis is out to lunch.

    GO CHIEFS!!!!!!
