there goes that plan of switching or hiring (HC's) for the better. don't you think a new coach with a better plan would hire better with mckenzie?
mckenzie explained it good when he was hired.
mckenzie explained it good after that season. mckenzie explained it good beginning this season.
mckenzie explained it good towards the end of this season.
that's a lot of be patient notices!
i guess i'll be patient (LOL)! well, i mean before and after 2014 until we get another be patient notice. he explains it well though! "every year".
8-21 AND counting! we're a player or two away from being a winning team.

just think, i used to be optimistic!(lol), well, till mckenzie came in and took everything apart in one shot. it's not so much the part that he came into the org. but it's the way he handled things. al davis always fixed things financially without throwing away a season to the wind. well, i've gone over all this stuff over and over again of how things will go and they have gone that way with two losing seasons in a row. BUT? likewise ladies and gentlemen, i hope i'm wrong too. more for the sake of the direction of the team and it's future that is promised with patience. if it works this season of 2014? it's fair even if i still feel disgruntled about two wasted seasons that could have been. if, they extend them to 2015? and it works in 2015? it's unfair but regardless, we still want our RAIDERS to win no matter what. BUT? if it doesn't work in 2014? well, i guess you all know how it is optimistic mckenzie lovers!

I think about the Head coach thing this way. If you are a GM, you run a machine. At the head of that machine is a lever. If the level is installed properly, is made of the right material, can stand the wear and tear, when you turn the lever, you can help determine how well the machine runs and at what rates.

Head coaches are the levers. McKenzie is trying to decide is Allen is a bad fit for a lever, if the lever isn't doing the job it needs to, or, if you are were pumping garbage through the machine to begin with, you cant expect the lever to do much about it. Will a new lever even fit? Even work?
