Before the season started there was one thing Raider Nation agreed on which is rare and that was we all thought Knapp was a bad hire too bad we were right.


Not true. Most of us were very wrong actually.

I'm probably in the minority here, but I think that Lance Kiffin was a much worse playcaller than Knapp. Knapp was a victim of not having the correct personel to match "his" scheme. We have talented players that are not good at what he wanted to do (and refused to change). Dont forget how pathetic and predictable Kiffin was in the red-zone. he was very High-schoolish as a playcaller.

Also, i'll throw out a name....

Chris Ault- Just stepped down as Nevada head coach. Is credited with having invented the Pistol Offense. Not only would Pryor be able to be used more in the pistol, but it would benefit mcfadden greatly because it would get the ball in his hands quicker. He obvioulsy struggled this year when we took 10 seconds to hand the ball off to him with our zone reads.

I dont think Palmer would have any trouble adapting to the pistol either. It can be a very friendly pass offense as well, and it obviously does not need to be incorperated into every single play.

I've mentioned Chris Ault, and you mean Lane Kiffin not Lance Kiffin.

Tafur reports via league sources that Knapp and several other members of the Raiders coaching staff will be let go this week.

Wonder what he means by several other members of the Raiders coaching staff ?

Does that mean defense too ?

With Ken Whisenhunt out in Arizona I think we should give him a call, he'd be a really good hire.

What about Special Teams ?

I wouldn't mind the D-Line coach let go.

I agree. I'd love to have him here. Wiz and Norv are my top two candidates.
