Mark Davis is “Pissed”

Mark Davis, the owner of the Oakland Raiders, says “I’m embarrassed, pissed, disappointed and I take full responsibility” for the Raiders awfulness this season. The Raiders were actually better this week having only given up 38 points today. Previously they had given up 42 and 55 in consecutive weeks. With the team getting their @$$es handed to them regularly, they haven’t shown improvement at all this year. In fact, some Raiders fans claim they were a better team under the fired Hubert Jackson.

Of course they were better. They were built by Al Davis for an offensive scheme like Jackson’s. Now they are running a crazy version of the West Coast for some reason. Oakland doesn’t have the personnel to run the West Coast effectively, and I don’t even know why Dennis Allen is attempting to run it.

One thing about good coaching: You don’t get wedded to a scheme. You work with players you have on hand and put them into position to succeed. You run your offense or defense according to your talent. Coaches wedded to a system are ones who rotate around the league after firings.

Good coaches will win with whatever they’ve got.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
