Raiders keep self destructing

Raiders keep self destructing

I almost feel sorry for that franchise. It seems like new problem players crop up every week. The finger pointing seems to be killing that franchise.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but Brady Quinn better hope that Detroit keeps losing because the black hole is literally swallowing guys' entire careers there.

It's a great time to be a Saints fan. After last week's loss, I'm so impressed with guys like Brees, Bush and Grant who accept responsibility for the game and want to get better. I hope we can get some positive momentum headed into the playoffs.

RE: Raiders keep self destructing

If I'm a coach that the Raiders are looking at I'd call them and say no thanks.
What a horrible mess they have there.
I bet Payton is happy as hell he never got the job as the Raiders coach..
Question:

Which coach do you feel can help turn it around for the better in Oakland?
I seriously can't think of one person.

RE: Raiders keep self destructing

There are only two guys I can think of.

1. Sean Payton--he's the only guy I know with the guts to cut half his team to start with guys who won't be a distraction. The Raiders can't have him though.

2. Tony Dungy--his reclamation project with Tampa has to be the most impressive turn-around in a hopeless franchise in the past 30 years.

RE: Raiders keep self destructing

I thought about it some, the one coach that comes to my mind is Jon Gruden, I think the players would respect him and they would buy into his system fairly fast.

One of the big problems in Oakland is Al Davis, IMO, years ago he was a great owner who had complete control of his team but these days it seems he can't control his team and hires the wrong personal, he's lost his feel for the game.
