Raiders' Dennis Allen doesn't want to talk about job security


The Oakland Raiders are at the bottom of the division with a 4-9 record. They’re coming off a loss to the New York Jets who are having their own struggles. When things like this happen coaches end up on hot seats, but Raiders head coach Dennis Allen doesn’t want to talk about it.

“Listen, that’s not what my job is,” Allen said, via Steve Corkran of the Bay Area News Group. “My job is to try to get this team better, get this team ready to play against the Kansas City Chiefs. I’m not going to talk about speculation or anything like that. I’m going to worry about winning a football game this week.”

Allen also don’t think their record is an accurate representation of their season.

“We’re a lot closer,” Allen said. “Obviously the record doesn’t say so. We all recognize that, at the end of the day, this is a production business. We understand that you are what your record says you are.

“But I also know there’s a lot of areas where this football team has improved. We’ve got to continue to improve in those areas and other areas so that we’re able to win football games and not come away and be disappointed.”
