Should Mark Davis Fire Dennis Allen if Raiders Start 0-4?

When Reggie McKenzie sold Mark Davis on his “3-year plan” for the Raiders to be competitive again, this surely isn’t what Davis had in mind. Granted, the problems that McKenzie and his hand-picked head coach, Dennis Allen, had to surmount were unprecedented in the league’s recent history.

The only guarantee for the Oakland Raiders in the NFL Draft

With the Oakland Raiders declining to use neither the franchise nor the transition tag on Lamarr Houston or Jared Veldheer, as was the common thought process among fans and sports media pundits, one is left to wonder what exactly owner Mark Davis is thinking under that bowl haircut of his.

Al Davis and the Raider way lives on in Mark Davis

The Oakland Raiders and Al Davis were synonymous for many years. The owner and former coach ran almost every aspect of the football operations and was the face of the franchise like no other owner ever has been or ever will be.
