'Tis the Season....
Turner is not Head Coach material. Two failed attempts at it should put him back in the Coordinator role somewhere.
They're dropping like flies. He'll make a fine OC somewhere, but no team should be stupid enough to ever hire him as a head coach ever again.
I'm shocked I tell you. Shocked! < /sarcasm>
One division victory in two years? Probably the worst Raider team since '62 (when they went 1 - 13). It's been all downhill for this franchise since Al Davis started public feuding with Marcus Allen in the mid-80s. Yeah, they've had some pretty good seasons since then, and even (luckily) made it to the Big Dance in '02 (only to be slaughtered by the Bucs), but the days of Long, Alzado, Matuzak, Sistruck, Stabler, Lamonica, Plunkett, Otto, Upshaw, Shell, Branch, Belitnikoff, Casper, Hayes, Brown, Allen, Hubbard, Guy, Blanda. .....long gone. The "Raider mystique" is dead.
Buh Bye Norm ... you will be missed by this long time Raider fan ... NOT
I wonder what the buy out is on Pete Carroll's new extension at U$C. Pete could stay in CA and would have some talent to work with.
Now it's time to cut Kerry Collins.
They oughtta fire Al Davis.
I can't say I didnt see this coming, because Norv was a dead man walking after the Miami loss. I wouldn't mind Al (that's Mr. Davis to you) hiring Pat Hill but considering that we've never hired a coach from the college ranks (and that Fresno State has a real habit of losing games they should win) I have my doubts.
This is just one Raider fan's opinion. GO RAIDERS!
