    Dennis Allan is under a 4 year contract because they are in the middle of rebuilding. Mark Davis wants to see progress and he will, Raiders were 4-12 last year, they will be 7-9 this year, and when they are the wealthiest team in the NFL next season expect them to unseat the elderly Peyton Manning as the division leader. They will have so much talent next year it will baffle the minds of the raider hating media and probably force them to consider jumping off the bay bridge after beating the broncos.

    If by some ghostly intervention disallows the raiders to reach the playoffs in year 4 of his contract then yeah… fire him, BUT FAT CHANCE of that happening.

    Allen will be fine, but adios Rex Ryan for sure.

    I love the Washington Redskins football team but am not blind to the needs of this team, I am not sure if Shanahan is the guy. But with limited talent the team did well in 2012. Now the reality is here a projected 4-12 with a great upside. Do we allow shanny another chance or just kiss and say good bye. We have 36 million to spend in 2014. Who will direct this team next year, Fletcher needs to retire its time, we need speed on defense and safety help, Our O line needs help big time, we need to gut our receiving core. Special teams is a nightmare.
