The Raiders officially marked the end of the Bill Callahan era Wednesday, announcing the coach's departure in a five-paragraph news release.

Al Davis doesn't like to lose, but he has been plaqued by his own self worth on running a football team and either lacking a good coach and/or a good quarterback. Last year was the exception for almost 20 years.

I like Marc Trestman for the job. 15 yrs. experience and the Raiders were #1 in offense. Their defense is where they are hurting! Just Win Baby!

It's Dennis Green's job if he wants it.

Has Jesse Jackson weighed in yet?

I know he'll be talking, I just don't know if anyone will be listening...
