The Jaguars have just fired their Head Coach, Jack Del Rio. Despite having and maintaining very solid Defenses in Jacksonville over the past eight seasons, Del Rio's offenses have struggled recently.
Despite it's 3-8 record, Jacksonville's Defense is the 4th toughest in the NFL. Compare that to the Raiders now ranked 27th.
The Raiders really need to move on Jack Del Rio as their DC. There's no question in my mind his leadership and defensive intelligence would take our Defense up several notches. Moreover, the simplicity of our system could be absorbed in short order. Our Defense needs strong leadership, Richard Seymour cannot do it by himself. A strong unifying voice is needed in what Hue Jackson has delegated away - the management of the D - which is in dire need of a strong leader.
Most importantly, Del Rio would command respect. Jack played LB for 11 years in the NFL and has a respectable coaching resume. No doubt, he would get the most out of our superior athletes and take our D to new heights.
Hue, Amy & Mark, I beg of you, please make this move and solidify our team while carving your names in Raider history for your wisdom and decisiveness.
