For the most part this season, the Las Vegas Raiders defense has shown strong improvement in 2023 under defensive coordinator Patrick Graham.

He might get head-coaching interviews in the offseason and perhaps he could even be a candidate for the Raiders’ job. We recently asked fans in a poll if they would like to see Graham be a candidate owner Mark Davis considers or or do they not think he would be an upgrade over interim head coach Antonio Pierce who may be a favorite for the job.

It seems most fans aren’t sold on Graham being a candidate in Las Vegas.

In a poll with 463 votes, 63 percent (291 votes) don’t want Graham as a candidate for the Raiders’ job while 37 percent (172 votes) like the idea of Graham over Pierce.

Time will tell what Davis decides.
