you guys are going to hate me for saying this but,
I'M DONE WITH DARREN MCFADDEN!
DONE! not only did g knapps scheme expose mcfadden's weeknes but mcfadden is also injury prone. dmac shows he can only run if there is a wide open gap. he cannot open a lane by himself. he hits a wall and fails to gain yards after that. he cannot reverse and do a marcus allen, or power run like bo jackson. mcfadden has speed when he finds the open lane and that is it! yes he did great one season. but three years and and avg 4.4 and 3.4 a season is not cutting it. reece, goodson, have ran cirles around mcfaddens running style. trade mcfdden! don't wait on another (o-coordinators) scheme whether it's good or not. mcfadden cannot break a tackle on the line! he's done in my book!
END OF RAIDERS 2012!!!

and okay, you bring in a coach who has a great scheme for mcfadden, who's going to fix his injury prone ankles? oh and there is a list of free agents that are going to be gone and a list of players that are set to come to oakland. dennis allen, "i'm not going to get into who's on that list" and "no names".
i gotta say, palmer may be the starter, but i bet pryor gets more reps in training camp and more chances to play in 2013.

I didn't even think about it, but he made it obvious that he's through with McClain and that dropped his value so we may not get as much as we could've now.

if allen wants to set his sights on 2013, then he needs to get a young proven college (o-coordinator) that wants to get into the nfl with hopes of being a (hc) someday. one of those coaches that loves the pass and the run. the nfl now is a passing leauge. but YOU CANNOT abandon the run! for that we need a power runner! DRAFT ONE! i hope we can get an (oc) way before the draft so he can help pick players. if no other (oc) in mind? stick with al saunders.

My question about McClain is, how much of it was poor coaching? Our LB coaching was horrendous this year. I know he hasn't had a breakout year yet, I think he has the talent. Just not sure if we were using him properly or if he isn't mature enough to take the bukk by the horns. Either way good ciaching could have provided a very different outcome.

I like McClain but I don't know exactly what kind of vision Allen has for our defense

well i guess now it depends on how dennis allen feels about keeping or releasing mcclain. cause after all, he did let him back on the roster? that gave them both (allen and mcclain) time to take a deep breath and think about what each wants to do.
mcclain can say i'm sorry i was wrong and i want to continue to play here. i will do my best to play here.
or,
d allen can say look, i want you here but i'm the coach and i say how much time you can play. if i feel someone is doing better in your spot, i will play that person.
it's not over. tarver is still there and we will be getting a new (lb-coach). mcclain has a shot but if they don't work it out, trade is best option. it depends how much anger the coach and player still hold?

i wanna know who we're getting as an (OC) already! i hope it's someone we don't know. i don't want to hear it's someone like norv turner. even though i know he would do okay. i'd rather be surprised with an unknown (OC) that they have been eyeing for a while. i probably wouldn't mind al saunders cause he knows the RAIDERS already and has done good with us, but we might as well get an unknown since everything is new around here anyways. BUT I WANT TO KNOW ALREADY! i mean, there is no hurry but, just so we can look forward to what's next in our thoughts :)

(OC) pete carmicheal's contract is over with saints and so is (intermn coach) of the saints.
pete carmicheal would be great here for the pass but not the run. all they did was pass in new orleans?
