Their roster is about as devoid of talent as it gets in the NFL.
It's going to take Reggie McKenzie 3 or 4 very solid drafts and a few years of smart free agent signings to turn that mess around.
They don't have room for error....they need to hit on their drafts and free agent signings in order to even be competitive in the near future.
Al Davis left that team a mess....I don't think Dennis Allen is ready for the challenge of turning them around and I doubt Mark Davis will have the patience to let him try past next season.
Mark Davis needs to give Reggie McKenzie a good 4 years to let him implement his plan, which started with the roster purge and current rebuilding process.
There's no way around it....it's going to take some time to turn that franchise around and get them on the right track.
