I don't believe firing Allen would give the Raiders extra time to do a coaching search. Because I wouldn't want McKenzie doing that search.

Tim Kawakami

I'm not a proponent of quick coach firings, which generally don't fix anything. But sometimes the coach goes just because somebody has to.

Let's put it this way, Raiders management is doing nothing to shoot down the assumption that Dennis Allen is coaching for his job right now.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie politely declined my interview request today. Owner Mark Davis has not returned a call...

I asked Allen if that means he has talked with GM Reggie McKenzie, not necessarily Mark Davis this week, and Allen said: "Correct."

Tim Kawakami

Asked if he's talked to Mark Davis this week, Allen said: "We have our normal chain of command in how we communicate & nothing's changed."

Unfortunately, I'm going to miss today's 49ers official Sony media stonewall event.

Tim Kawakami

I swear, I think some 49ers fans believe the Constitution protects their team's right to win football games. 49th Amendment?

Andre Iguodala

Another one bites the dust! They coming for us...

Tim Kawakami

Are schools now teaching kids that NFL eligibility is just as important as the court system? Really seems like it.

Tim Kawakami

Due process as an NFL PR construct is absurd. And really, it's insulting to actual rights for people who actually are in court.

Tim Kawakami

For the 1,000th time: Due process is a legal term, it is not relevant to whether someone plays a football game.

Could the Adrian Peterson development change the 49ers' stance on Ray McDonald's status? Very, very doubtful. bit.ly/1qYvXHs

Tim Kawakami

Maybe one of the 49ers' sponsors can line up behind the Ray McDonald PR spin. Call it the "Dignity Health due process dodge."

Tim Kawakami

I've said this before, others disagree, but I believe: Trent Baalke runs all aspects of the football team and Jed York won't over rule him.

Marcus Thompson

Yes! RT @dyee178: @A1Doulos are those lyrics? If so that's crazy flow

Apparently lots of people on Twitter watched that segment. I'm just glad @JohnMiddlekauff didn't break the Touch Screen. It was close.

Tim Kawakami

I was asked on live TV to go game-by-game through Nov 23. I had the 49ers at 7-4. From there, split with SEA, win the others, that's 11-5.

Last year's game was on a short week... 49ers' D destroyed Bradford & the Rams offense. This year it's regular rest, but vs. a better team.

This week's 49ers game in AZ reminds me a lot of last year's Week 4 game in STL, when 49ers were 1-2, Willis was out and VDavis was limited.

I don't know how much longer we'll have independent journalism in the Bay Area, but I want to be doing it for as long as it exists.

Tim Kawakami

When the issue got too big to contain--the Rice video--the NFL tried the same PR tricks and it wasn't enough. But they tried.

Tim Kawakami

In a convoluted way, this exposed the NFL's arrogance more than anything: They figured everyone would buy their PR because so many always do

Tim Kawakami

Personally, I still can't believe some great NFL reporters initially wholly bought the "due process" dodge in so many cases. Terrible.

Tim Kawakami

Seeing a lot of criticism of the snuggly relationship between the NFL and some top reporters, which is worthy of examination...

Tim Kawakami

This is a franchise that could a powerful, experienced, savvy president. But the Yorks for some reason have always resisted that.

Tim Kawakami

Fans don't care, they only want wins. But if you ever want things explained, it won't be done by anybody in power with the 49ers.

Tim Kawakami

49ers summary: GM hates talking publicly, owner almost never does it, coach does it but often stonewalls & the QB would rather never do it.

Brandon Rush

Where can I get box seats for this drake n lil Wayne concert

Tim Kawakami

But if you know Baalke and Harbaugh, you know they ferociously refuse to ever do that. Jed York could over rule them but he never does.

Tim Kawakami

I understand why outsiders ask if the 49ers' brass will bow to outside pressure on McDonald/domestic violence, but...

Tim Kawakami

I've said this before: I think a segment of Raiders fandom loves losing, because it makes them even more separate from the universe.

Tim Kawakami

You can misjudge draft picks, and McKenzie has. Misjudge talent, and he has. But to let Veldheer go with the tag available... Inexcusable.

Tim Kawakami

Raiders had more money to spend than anybody, had the means to keep a young player at a crucial position. And then... just didn't.

Tim Kawakami

Reggie McKenzie has made many of mistakes. This isn't the biggest, but maybe it's most bewildering: Why didn't he franchise-tag Veldheer?

Tim Kawakami

The Raiders are not a place any player chooses if he has another option. If that doesn't change, they might never get out of this.

Tim Kawakami

I don't think Gruden is necessarily a miracle-worker and I doubt he'd really come to the Raiders. But he'd definitely change the dynamic.
