By Jeff Weisinger, published on Jan 10, 2014

... season to the draft and our needs for next season.

Although rumor had it that Davis would let go of Allen given the team's lackluster 4-12 season, Davis called the meeting "end-of-season protocol", according to Gutierrez, and mentioned that Allen's job was safe.

Allen also led the Raiders to a 4-12 record in 2012 in his first year as the team's head coach.

The Raiders 2013 season was a roller coaster season that one would want to eventually forget where they slightly succeeded and struggled between two quarterbacks, lose their final six straight games of the season while ... (more)

The Battle for 1st in the AFC West

...afraid their playoff chances might be over. It will be interesting to see if Rivers can carry his team to where they once were. They are scheduled face Detroit, Baltimore, and Oakland in the final three games of the season.

Far to the North Bay of California the former AFL Oakland Raiders have been hard at work, trying to overcome years of turmoil. The once feared team, known for their tenacious play and deep passing game, had been ran primarily by the one they called “coach” Al Davis.
