This could go either way. I do believe Hugh was not right for the Raiders. I do believe we had athletes and not a team. And I do believe Reggie/Allen have a plan. The problem for some is, it will take a couple to three seasons to see the plan start to come together. So it will be easy to not look at the big picture and jump to conclusions and say they need to go. But here is what we are faced with. Be jumpy and unrealistic. Or be patient an no guarantee this works. But it could work very well. and just as easily could tank. I am gambling on patience and it working.
NFL 101 !! you build a team thru the draft , selective FREE AGENTS , AND THERE WILL BE THE ONE two OR 3 KEY TRADES that will come back to put you over the top ! he inherited a team on the cusp of the next level, truly a player or 2 away,and yeah go hire a jeff fisher , let him bring in a better def cord and we have a team with 10+ wins and playoffs written all over it PERIOD What this guy has done is criminal,$$ 50 mill in dead money ?? this is sick , and all of you are COMPLICIT in this scam he is running, a true rebuild is a few big trades, a few key signings .and some intelligent restructures , THIS GUY HAS DONE NONE OF THE ABOVE ,coming into 2013 NOT ONE TRADE,(murphy for a 5 th , due to Carolina initiating ) not one key free agent, not one restructure , This guy RGGEIE is inept ! he is insane ! he has some form of brain damage I believe and it is quite evident !
A minimally smart gm would've had a field day taking over for this team , THIS IS A DEBAUCHERY ! THIS IS CRIMINAL ! AND HE IS GETTING AWAY WITH IT CAUSE #1 ron wolfe was trusted by mark davis , wolfe wanted reggie reggie their for his notch on the belt buckle thing ok ! period !
#2 HE HAS THE DUMBEST OWNER EVER ( no offense to mark davis this not his fault )
#3 THE FANS you are all being lied to by the MEDIA ! THEY R COVERING UP FOR THIS GUY WORSE THEN THEY DID FOR DON SHULA DOWN IN MIAMI ! Over here in jet land ny ,rex ryan has one bad year and they are telling the fan base whos fault it is and why , and the media clearly defined the roles and blunders by this teams GM lowner and head coach , the media made them accountable !!
why wont anyone make the REGGIE ACCOUNATBLE !
PS-* HE FIRED HUE JACKSON CAUSE HE WAS EXPERINECED , NOT DUE TO THE FACT THAT HE WAS A PHONY AND A BAD COACH , HE HIRED ALLEN CAUSE HE WOULDNT QUESTION HIM , ALLEN IS THE SACRIFIAL LAMB, SO IS TARVER , WHEN THEY GO 0-4-1-5 , EITHER TARVER GOES OR ALLEN GOES , REGGIE THEN GETS ANOTHER YEAR TO LEARN ON THE JOB ! AT MY AND YOURS EXPENSE !!!!!!! OH BOY ELWAY AND REST OF THE WEST MUST BE HAVING A GODD TIME WATCHING THIS ! THEY PROB FEEL GUILTY !!!!

Well,I just don't see how u can say we won't compete next yr..This is the 21 century,teams can turn into contenders in a heart beat,this is not the 80s/90s here...as far as a complete overhaul,I don't quite see that,looks like a defence overhaul,yes..but who on that D was worth keeping anyway...com on man,this team needed that for 10+yrs now..let's just see how things go this yr,I feel 8-8 is VERY achievable!!!

Al Davis and Reggie Mckenzie have different theories in management. McKenzie's main objective right now is a balanced checkbook because Al Davis was overpaying guys that were underperforming. I'm sure McKenzie will reward guys that perform well on the field in the long run, but I don't expect him to pay anybody big until we get some winning seasons under our belt. Right now I think he's looking for guys who want to win the superbowl, not guys that just want a paycheck.
