Some quick hits as we get to the end of the post-All-Star break lull ... 1. Who knows what owner Mark Davis really is thinking about the GM he hand-picked to rebuild the Raiders, but I know that Reggie McKenzie hasn't exactly been wowing a lot of people around the league lately.

well who knows what mark davis feels about mckenzie so far but i believe the commitment is still there. now, i know how people feel abot kawakami, and i have been one of those who don't care for kawakami from the past. so as he posts this article, he just bring back flashbacks of his day taunting the RAIDERS' mike herreira. so he has a lot of people still hating him but as far as the new era goes, he was welcomed back by the RAIDERS to print whatever he wants. and this is what we get. but anyways, i feel the same as kawakami. i feel like "public enemy number one". i feel like i can't talk against mckenzie and his job he is doing here. actually, i now hear more people comming down to earth and speaking reality and being honest on their opinion on how this season may go based on what has transpired since mckenzie. "i" on the other hand went backards on the deal on how i feel about mckenzie today. and don't get me all wrong, i still feel the same way about mckenzie for what he did from the beginning which i don't even want to get into but? i do have to say, that regardless of what happened since he joined, things have to shape up one way or another and as of this date, i am content with how this team looks as of right now, i am content with the firing of g knapp,i am content with the (oc's) olson and sparano. i'm content with the draft more or less (can't complain), and im decently happy with some of the free agents we have picked up. on the other hand, i still don't see us really getting ahead this season. improvement we may get, but i keep saying, next season will be better than this season. so, mckenzie, my only advice right now is to get these guys believing in the tradition of the winning ways of the oakland RAIDERS. fine, use your g-bay ways on "how to", but speak RAIDERS! everything from here on speak RAIDERS! take them on a field trip to the H.O.F. and show them RAIDER greats. the players that played with RAIDER HEART AND BLOOD! skip the g-bay section! skip the other team sections. if you have your own RAIDER h.o.f. in your building, show them the greats, show them hard nosed RAIDER football film! even show them film when you used to play for RAIDERS! show them what it means to be "silver and black"! tell them how passionate RAIDER fan base is, tell them you want that greatness but in this "new era"! just sayin'!
there's something missing on this team! SH.T, even show your head coach dennis allen how to get a pissed jon gruden "chucky" look! hell, he may be able to pull it off!(LOL).

MUST BE CLOSE TO THE SEASON! maybe that's why i feel this way! looking forward to the mess! the mess that is taking shape! "i guess".
no really, training camp will give little clues. and preseason we will see the team in formation. and first half of the regular season will show how things are going. and, the second half of the season we will see what or how this team may function or what to expect for 2014. it's fair right? just because this sounds like it's going to be a down season it doesn't mean it won't be exciting. it will probably be nail biting with excitement and frustration? but after all, it is a professional football team. so, we will be in it! just, not to win it. but it's cool.
