Sucks !!

You think there is any chance to get Nolan back now that he knows that there is no hope for him becoming head coach of the Fins ?

He was hired by Atlanta.

I wonder what the odds are that he will be Oakland HC this time next year?

The next dc will have the same issues if the front office ignores the defense this off season

Well, at least we have a D-minded head coach -- he'll likely want to find someone who gels with his type of defense. Real bummer - I really liked Dennis Allen. I thought he did a very good job last year.

If evil Al was still alive, I would say odds are at least 5 to 1 that Allen would be unemployed from the faiders this time next year. However, even if the faiders regress next year, a possibility because of the total culture change there, I say the odds favor him staying at least 1 more year.

Why? Because McKenzie's neck, and pride, are on the line. He has completely cleaned house and is putting his stamp on this team. For example, he has put all assistant coaches on notice, thus giving the impression that Allen will be able to hire his own coaches. Evil Al must be cursing in hell right now.

Ignores? We threw almost all of our draft picks, including the highest in franchise history, at the defense, along with over 5 million dollars in FA DL.

This sucks... I'm hoping Fox's Defensive mindset helps soften the blow. Too bad Spags has already been hired...

well, two trends continue:

-new DC for the Broncos

-everyone on the mane hating every assistant coach

good work, everyone

(at least I called it after the season ended)

Ok I think it's now even more cursed than the Defense Against the Dark Arts position at Hogwarts.

ignored?

Von Miller, Warren, Vickerson, Bunkley, Thomas, Champ, Chris Harris.

granted we didn't go out and drop a brinks truck on FA DL, but we used the highest pick in franchise history on a Defensive player. we brought back the best CB in franchise history. we paid Warren and Vickerson even though their injuries made them moot points. we traded for Bunkley, re-signed Thomas, brought in an awesome young UDFA in Harris.

not all blockbuster movies, but to say the defense was ignored is just wrong.

We just can't catch a break.

Bring Coyer back in. Coyer and Fox? I'm down with that. Make it so!

Dead serious. Coyer had some good things going on, he just didn't get the players he wanted. Coyer and Miller would be good for eachother. I know people scoff at the idea of recycling defensive coordinators, but Coyer is the kind that can get the most out of his players. He's a good, stable, hard-nosed defensive coordinator. Bring him in, give him an assistant to groom, and let's build a defense.

Besides, I didn't hear anything about Ron Milus or Sam Garnes getting fired, did you? As far as I know, the only positions currently open are Defensive Coordinator, and Strength and Conditioning.

I'm happy for Allen. I'm not convinced he has the expertise to get it done, especially with the limited draft stockpile the Raiders have but considering the talent they have along the defense I'm sure he'll get the best out of them.

I just hope we don't suffer the after effects on our D like we did when Nolan left town.
