"I don't care what kind of scheme it is. Either it's a good run call or a bad run call. It comes down to those type of things instead of just scheme."

Damn, Reggie, I was worried about you. Leaving me all alone on this sinking ship with nothing but Knapp and a big anchor and Ro plotting a drive by on Dennis the Menace. OK, everything's forgiven. Take back everything I said during November since you took back everything we did in November or at least tried to.
Let me get you up to speed since we're sort of short for time. 5 weeks, right? We need to look at this thing for 5 weeks and then we can go home and puke and make some decisions. Sounds good to me. That's about as long as the doctor gave me anyway if I kept watching games. I'll do the Raiders this one solid, but you've got to change the channel this time, alright?
OK, sounds like you sort of understand some of the problems we're having on the offensive side of the ball. Now, Reggie, about this defense. I realize we have some cap issues, contracts and what not, but there are some who might suggest just a tad bit more experience in defense than one year of NFL experience at a coordinator level, between your head coach and defensive coordinator. You sure Ro didn't mention this to Allen on Thursday? Maybe not those words, but something along that line? Anyway, we know he's done. If we do have to pay him any money, make him go to the anger management class to pick up his check. That's how we handle that situation. Now, we'll have to see how DA handles thing moving forward but you've got to take a serious look at this kid or we could be seeing the ghost of Callahan.
Now, offense, simple. Fire Knapp, save the money with PBS blocking until we've got at least four guys playing at a good level. If Allen says anything, put a red checkmark on the clipboard and skip the next 4 weeks. You're going to have to get a look at the kid soon but you can't be playing to the crowd. Let's wait until we solve this coaching thing before going any further on anything else.
