The comments by the "fan" above r absurd ! G.M. Mc Kenzie is cleaning house, 2 build a PowerHouse! Theres no short term solutions . Thats been tried with Hue Jackson who u love. True Raiders r Winners not whiners! Maybe u should Wheeler 2 the "dolfans". 8-8 seasons arent winning !

We won't ever know if Hue could build a team. Sure, he could run one, but mechanics and drivers are two different people who rarely share proficiency with each other.

Reggie appears to be more of a mechanic. Slowly adding parts, removing bulky obstructions and keeping some of the good pieces(he did keep Branch after all). Dennis Allen strikes me as sort of that slow, methodical guy, getting better in an iterative manner.

Hue did some great things, and played Al Davis ball, and made me proud to be a Raiders fan for the years he was with our team. Sure, i was sad when he was gone, but i can't be upset about it a year later. Gotta let go guys. If Hue goes on to have a hall of fame career somewhere else, then yes, we can all carpool out to Oakland and set Mark Davis on fire. But until then, lets give these guys this year, and next year before we judge them too harshly eh?

I remember when the 49ers owner died and his kids took over it seemed like they got rid of all the good players because they were lost in the team financially and all they cared about at the time was balancing the checkbook. Now the 49ers are a top tier NFC team again.

I think it's too early to judge whether or not McKenzie and Allen know what they're doing. To me the staff of Tom Cable, Hue Jackson, and John Marshall was the coaching regime that got us out of the trenches playing Al Davis football and gave us the season we'd been waiting for since the Rich Gannon era ended. I thought it was dumb to let Cable and Marshall go after they were a big part of doing what nobody since Gruden had been able to do and that was get us out of the celler. Jackson and Al Saunders did good with the offense the next year by not allowing us to fall below .500 at all during the season so we all had reason to believe, but Chuck Bresnahan's defense let us down big time in a lot of the lossses. Now with Al Davis gone and a new regime in the office who brought in their new coaching regime, it's pretty much start over from scratch and go from there.

I don't think we'll see what the new regime is all about for another season or two

36 years of being a rabid fan of the Raiders....
no more....these are not Raiders...this will be just another nfl team. The Raiders did things the
way the Raiders wanted to do them, its funny how
reggie has to get rid of all of this dead money...
Mr.Davis did it every year, every year we were
millions over the cap, somehow he managed. I didnt care if we won or lost, as long as they did it their way, now we are just like the rest.
Sad, Sad end to the Raiders.

Hue is or was a good OC/ or call him a “Good Boy”(that’s all). He pushed Al's theory. He never thought for himself. In the beginning of his HC year he made good decisions, again pushing Al's agenda, using Al as a mentor. Once Al died, he panicked. Instead of putting the TEAM first and in the best position, he sided with making himself look like a genius.(did you see any of the commercial’s or read any of his interviews, are you even from the bay)? Since his new boss was not around anymore he worked with his old boss and gave him EVERYTHING he wanted. If you have kids its like dad is not at home but he left the keys to the Benz. Well he crashed it :-( Now what Hue labeled as “the biggest trade in football history”, is now known as "another dumb move by Oakland" If what Hue did was so great for the TEAM as HC it would still should still be great. But if you know anything about Football you know that when RM got the keys, my TEAM was screwed. Open your eyes the only people that won in that situation was cinci, palmer and Hue. By the way Hue is still working for his old boss in cinci. Sounds like an episode of SCANDAL, you need to do your homework and figure out who is screwing who. I love the Raiders win, lose, or rebuild… And I and I will have your head split right in the parking lot if you tried to push that sh*t thru. You sound like a dude that just wants to roll with us so you don’t get rolled on. Hue was never Raider blood. I hope this helps the “don’t knows” see a little clearer.
