McD is way better than Bates. If he walks he walks.

Not a matter of better, just that he knows things about our offensive players.

In McDaniel's system he doesn't.

So because he copied it he has more knowledge than they guy who ran it and knew each detail?

I like Bates but I like what McD has done with QB's better.

This is a terrible move IMO. McDaniels should've been doing his utmost to keep Bates.

I guess Greasy Al liked seeing us throw non stop deep balls against the Raiders in Denver. Must have made him drool (more than usual).

I'm surprised after the playcalling in our last game against the Raiders that they would want anything to do with him. Of course Al does love a long ball and that's pretty much all we threw that entire game... never mind that we didn't connect on any of them.

Poor execution and mistakes, **** all to do with the playcalling or didn't you notice small facts like Marshall dropped the most passes in the league last year

The plays were left on the field time and time again.

Raiders owner Al Davis, who has been hospitalized in recent weeks, has been interviewing head-coaching candidates. The Raiders sought, in writing, and were granted permission to speak with Bates about a role on a new coaching staff, possibly even head coach.

Bates, 32, just finished his first season as the Broncos' primary play-caller. Quarterback Jay Cutler set a franchise single-season record for yards passing and earned his first Pro Bowl trip.
yup, the rout is on....

How freaking depressing must it be to get interviewed for a job by Al Davis in a hospital room.

everyone should have been impressed last year. bates called a lot of very good games, especially for being so young. we scored a ton of points and got even more yards, which is damn good considering the RB situation.

hes gonna be a good OC, and maybe even a head coach someday.
