many are asking for greg knapp's head! listen, as much as g knapp has been controversial (O-cordinator here, he is ranked 12th over all on (O). 7th on passing and 29th in the rush.
if they give goodson or reece the ball as many times as they have given it to mcfadden, we would be ranked at least maybe 20th in the rush.(just saying). trust me, i've been against knapp and have been a two-faced person with you guys about g knapp. only cause i'm trying to look at the big picture for next season just like the way you guys are looking at the "big picture" on the RAIDERS future!
as of right now, i'm okay with g knapp. just on the fact that he has carson palmer, just on the fact that we are ranked 12th overall in total (O). and yes, it sucks that dmac was not a fit for his offense, but m reece and goodson can do dmac's job and probably better. but (rb) is not really the problem here if we skip mcfadden. the problem is knapp fixing more scoring plays for c palmer. AND? a little more throws down field "the bomb"! he threw a nice one to criner and threw an (int) on another long bomb. it's fine, palmer didn't time it. but how often or how many times have you guys seen the "bomb" here? not many right? g knapp quoted "unquoted" saying, i know when we need to throw deep, i just feel this is not the time" . this was AL DAVIS'S favorite play. "win with speed"! RAIDERS don't have that today because of mckenzie's theory that "we don't need to win with speed". sorry but, i still believe in al davis's theory about speed. the much regarded OREGON'S (hc) chip kelly wins with speed. and even jon gruden believes that if he went into coaching, he would use chip kelly's playing scheme. alright, so we are going to keep the same coach for next season and most likely keep jason tarver and mckenzie's (defensive) scheme and ways. there for, i say keep everything as far as the coaches go, intact. get the players to fit your scheme and after this, if it don't work? we're F'D for that many more years!

You just proved why we need rid of Knapp. The reason we are ranked so high on passing is Carson palmer, not Knapp. Palmer has great accuracy, and if given just enough time to release the ball, Palmer would be able to find the WR regardless of scheme. Knapp is the problem. History has shown, Knapp usually gets worse second season, meaning less effeicient. Get rid of him and quick.

(lol) well yeah, just trying to keep this team together that they believe in. i know palmer is great and i know mcfadden is great and all he (dmac) needs is another coach to make plays for him. knapp says it takes a lil longer than a year to get his players to get the scheme AND?, the right players. other coaches who use that scheme say the same for knapp. players feel like they are just now starting to get the (ZBS). in order for knapp to stay, he may have to look great on (O) these last two games.(keep an eye). i really hope mark davis gets a little flashbacks of his fathers boldness. and says, this position needs to change! so, change it! maybe it will start happening if losing continues here. he's already a lil frustrated with the amount of losses. he's just trying to give it chance. he's trying to keep his coooool. but the pressure from the RAIDER nation will make him explode soon and knapp could be the first to go!

What was really stupid was Knapp was our OC for 2 years and did nothing. We went a year without one and did nothing and in comes Hue Jackson and offense improves greatly and he gets promoted to HC and in comes Al Saunders and picks up where Jackson left off and then we rid Jackson, demote Saunders and bring back the guy that did NOTHING. I would love to have Hue Jackson back at OC or Al Saunders back in that position.

you've hit it right on the dot T_RAIDER. al saunders should have taken over at the (O-cordinator) position! knapp should have never been hired but okay, he's here. and i believe he will finish the year out, i mean, why not? only two games left!(lol). but i can almost guess al saunders will not be back next seson. i don't even know how he made it here this season? i pretty much know they kept him incase g knapp didn't work out but i believe that if g knapp goes, so will saunders. but you're right. al saunders should have been the man! DMAC'S JOB WOULD HAVE BEEN SAFE!

how are the coaches going to look next season if they get new and great playing players for them? are they going to look like this season? cause we already had good decent players this season to start with, only, they were overpaid and and didn't fit their scheme? but do you guys think we will move forward with "the same coaching staff" and new players?

i was reading this on rantsports.
should r mckenzie trade his top pick to get more picks in the later rnds in the draft? to fix the (D)?
it sounds logical. and it also sounds like something r mckenzie would do. so, yeah!
also, trade carson? no! might as will get what they can out of him at least one more year. i know he is good for more but if they have plans? give him one more?
any of you guys got thoughts or second thoughts on trading d mcfadden for more draft picks? if we trade these two and who else mcclain?, t pryor? and whoever fits that category?, shoot! we could be rich in the draft!(lol).
i don't think this 2013 draft has too many great top picks comming in.
once mckenzie gets enough picks from trade, he can trade for proven free agents.

100% agreement. The personel/players are solid on the offense. DMac has been neutralized the Raider scheme. The only question was replacing Michael Bush and the Raiders seemed to have found that replacement with Marcel Reese. The concern is the Raiders-Brass being in denial about the scheme and purging the roster of quality players.

I think we could get a late first or second rounder for McClain. Given McFadden's injury history, I don't think we'll do better than a 3rd rounder for him, but could possibly get a second rounder.

Granted if Allen and Tarver are gone at the end of the year, then there is an off chance that McClain will stay. I do look for Huff and DHB to be gone too.

Personally I don't want to see another coaching change unless it's for somebody like Andy Reid that has proven he can win and I don't want to see McClain leave either but that seems like a very likely move no matter what.

seems like you like mcclain more than allen and tarver?(lol), but i think mcclain still has a slight chance here probably depending on how things go on this last game and his conduct with the head coach. OR? like you said, a coaching change!
it looks like d allen will stay and tarver as well. actually, getting to know tarver, has been a little upside. he's quarky, but seems to have that vision if he has the right players AND HEALTHY PLAYERS! tarver will be licking his chops in the draft.

I've been a huge supporter of McClain and I like Dennis Allen, I'm just opposed to changing the coach again. Tarver, I don't know much about, but if McClain stays and Allen and Tarver are gone, then it will be McClains 4th coaching change in 4 years and I don't think he needs that, but even if he leaves, it will again be his 4th coaching change in 4 years.
