Al Davis is the problem?

I am fed up with this crap. I have reconsidered everything that has been going on with the Raiders and finally came to a realization. How is it Al Davis' fault that we are losing? Is he the quarterback? Is he the head coach? No. He isn't. He stated in his press conference after firing Lane Kiffin that Lane had full control of the team. It's obvious this is true because we played a cover 2 defense which we have NEVER been known to do. That showed that Kiffin was controlling the defense, not Rob Ryan. Al Davis was sick of losing 5 years in a row so he signed some big name free agents and traded for Deangelo Hall which in theory would have created the best cornerback tandem in the league and possibly of all time. But, that didn't work because of Deangelo's temper tantrums and terrible man to man coverage. Javon Walker was a stud in Green Bay and even made the pro bowl there. Who would have known that he's a moron that goes to Vegas and flashes thousands of dollars? He's in his 7th season so it's not like there isn't any gas left in the tank, he just doesn't try any more now that he's paid, thus the retirement situation. He is now "injured" for the year, yeah right. Kwame Harris and Tommy Kelly just suck period so I do disagree with Al's big payments for these guys. They're solid players at best but would be backups on any other team. Jamarcus Russell is a product of a great system in LSU. Any quarterback that plays for LSU can look good even if they aren't. Russell appears to be a bust due to overthrowing everyone and fumbling every time he is touched. Maybe he will get better if we get an offensive line or if he decides to roll out or scramble more instead of just standing there 5 seconds waiting to get sacked.

You can't blame players poor performances on the owner. But mostly it is due to bad coaching.(Art Shell, Norv Turner, Bill Callahan, Tom Cable) IF YOU DON'T REALIZE THAT AL DAVIS WANTS TO WIN SO BAD HE WOULD GO BANKRUPT OR INSANE DOING SO THEN YOU ARE BLIND.
