did he really? i couldn't tell! if he did, he could've spoke great about him. and who's fault was it that we didn't play with a full deck? al davis's? i don't think so! we could've eased a few players out without getting rid of the whole football team and leaving d allen with nothing to play with. if d allen would have started with "most" of the guys that were let go, we would have seen what d allen was really about. yeah the season without a full deck was unfair to d allen and from here on we just gotta see what happens. mckenzie say's he is in a lot better financial place as far as salary cap goes. let's see what he does with it.
i tell ya, al davis would have handled the salary cap differently. even if "it was a mess, according to mckenzie". what? al davis would have gone bankrupt? i don't think so! it is just different way of business of the way the green bay packers handled the business compared to oakland's. maybe g-bay's desk was neat and organized. maybe al davi's desk was messy and unorganized but, al davis was a business man and, the best at it at that! something's gotta give here in oakland, even if we have to roll with the punches. i wish j madden had something great to say about dennis allen. i still wouldn't have believed it. i'd probably madden was just being nice. never the less, i wish dennis allen the best! here.

This is the big statement of this article to me, which i overall agree with:

"...In addition Allen’s decision to completely scrap a successful offense for one that produced next to nothing will be the main talking point of his first season."

Maybe Hue was the only one who could have run it successfully, but we did go from top 10 while losing our starting QB and RB by week 8, to "quick carson, run a 2 minute drill for 2 quarters"
