COACHES and...


What's wrong with interviewing head coaches like Jim Fassell or Brian Billick? They both are proven NFL coaches with Super Bowl experience. Living on the east coast, I watched Fassell with the Giants for those years and I always saw a very intense, animated and tough coach. Same goes for Billick. Forget Dom Capers and some of the other interviews, although Mike Tice was a gritty and respectable coach when in Minnesota. Say NO to an overrated Gruden and Cower is quite happy on the TV show. There has to be a defensive coach out there, yet unsigned. Maybe a Winston Moss is a good selection. He's younger and has the feel for today's players and has the Raider background. Next year is going to be a productive one: Palmer will be used to the system and I can see a +3500 yard/+30 TD season for him; if McFadden can play a full year free of injury he's up around 1400 yards and 8-12 TD's; he'd also give Reggie Bush a rest as Bush wore down in the late season. The wide receivers will be more in sync with Palmer and perhaps they can get Boss involved. He is a great weapon to have as a tight end. Defensively, the front four is tough, the linebackers have to be able to shut down the run effectively. The secondary has holes, but that is a league issue due to the rules. Watch some of the older footage when the "Soul patrol" was intact: Tatum, Thomas, Atkinson, Davis...that type of tough hitting and coverage would never be allowed today, which is sad. Remember when Tatum drilled Chuck Forman in the Super Bowl? Or when Ike Lassiter crunched Joe Namath's cheekbone? Giordano is a tough throwback as is Mitchell. Anyway, QUESTION: what if they move up in the draft by trading Reggie Bush? He has made mention that he would like to be a full-timer on another team? OUTLANDISH WISH: how about putting the money on Brees or signing Colston? There we go fellow Raider fans (since 1965 here) I got my fingers crossed for a Super Bowl run in 2012.
