Oakland Raiders to run a no-huddle offense with Derek Carr

When the Oakland Raiders hired Bill Musgrave as their new offensive coordinator, many were disappointed. After rumors that Marc Trestman was a top candidate, the name Musgrave just didn’t invoke much excitement. Especially because many of his offenses were known for being, well, bland. A lot of running without much of a passing game. Though with that being said, most coaches would...

For the Raiders, the Jack Del Rio hire made perfect sense
