I think I've even told GPapa on live television that I believed he was Al's No. 1 guy. So be mad at me if you want Raider Nation. MY FAULT.
Not saying GPapa or Al were wrong about going through coaches every other year, but if that was Al's #1 adviser... oh my.
And GPapa said that he recommended that Al fire every one of them. Tells a lot about that team at the end of Al's reign.
My goodness, GPapa said on the radio that Al Davis called him after every year and asked whether he should fire the coach...
No Royce Feour Vegas Bowls Contest this year, due to logistical problems. I'm already missing it and the games haven't even started.
adapt or die
If Raiders bring back DA, there will be plenty of eye rolls. If they fire him, there will plenty of "Here we go agains."
Great answers in my responses: Higher expectations, lost the Super Bowl at 5-yard line, Harbaugh intensity, worry about Seattle...
Is this the angriest 49ers-fan season ever? For some reason, I can't explain why, it's very, very close.
Seems easy to tell what opponents' strategy is to beat Warriors, but it's hard to tell what Warriors' strategy is to beat opponents.
I guess many feel I should be fired for this. Yeah, I don't think the Seattle rivalry has a few 49ers fans nutty or anything like that.
49ers fans are furious with me always, this time they're right--I said Seattle clinched the NFC West--but have only clinched a playoff spot.
Warriors aren't just feeling loss of Malone. Also lost experienced AC Bob Beyer and replacements had little/no experience.
At some point, the Warriors are going to have to address the fact that Stephen Curry leads the league in turnovers.
David Lee ain't biggest Warriors' problem. He's just the easiest target.
Andrew Bogut said good teams have small ups and downs on defense. "Ours is like a heart-rate monitor. It’s all over the place."
Draymond Green said: "All of sudden, it becomes part of your DNA. That’s our DNA right now: We don’t play hard; We don’t defend."
Steph Curry: "I know we have what it takes. I know we’re a good team, but you can’t call yourself a good team with that (13-12) record."
Asked if he thinks the Warriors are better than their 13-12 record, Steph Curry said, "I used to."
Curry: “I know every single guy in this locker room cares about us being successful & doing whatever it takes. I’ll never question that.”
Steph Curry: “We care, man. We’re trying to turn it around and play better and put forth the effort to get us out of this."
Last MJax: "We (coaches) see it. Everybody sees it, but I don’t see anybody in uniform with that same passion. Enough is enough."
More MJax: ... then, certainly when they’re bad, they’ve got to be able to take it. Own it and let’s get better."
Jackson still has confidence in his squad, but "you’ve got to call it what it is. If you’re able to talk about how great they are, ... "
Andrew Bogut agreed: “It’s a horror move. I think we all just need to bring more effort to game ... & take our 1-on-1 matchups personally."
MJax continued: "We’ve got to find answers. I’m finding it that the guys in the suits and ties want it more than the guys in uniform.”
Mark Jackson after GSW's 106-102 loss to PHX: “We are not playing 48 minutes with a sense of urgency, and that’s the disappointing part. ...
"We're watching the same movie every night and it's getting old." - Mark Jackson
"I'm finding that guys in suits and ties want it more than the guys in uniform." - Mark Jackson
Curry had the lane to the rim on Tucker
Draymond's gotta take that layup ... At least he got the ball back
These turnovers ... wow
Klay is much better in second half. Less ball-handling
Tell you what, Curry has definitely improved at drawing fouls
Plumlee playing tether ball with David Lee's layups
Klay and Barnes have to handle too much with no Iguodala. That's not good
Klay ... smh ... he seems to be rapidly regressing
Interesting Mark Jackson says staff cares more than players. Three weeks ago team had special chemistry.
Having 2 guys on the floor who can't shoot mid-range jumpers isn't a good thing. Also 2 guys who can't defend the 3-point line.
Mark Jackson essentially split Bogut and DLee in the 4th quarter. I think that might have to continue. Just not very compatible right now.
About to watch Warriors on DVR
Warriors' malaise continues, now 5-9 since Nov. 20. Once again, too many turnovers vs. pressure defense and too much scrambling on D.
Good teams usually shouldn't have to give their power forward a courtesy defensive assignment. And yet...
Desperate for energy, here come Draymond Green and Kent Bazemore for the Warriors.
Assistant coach Pete Myers is taking his turn at lighting up the Warriors during the timeout huddle.
Allen said he is sticking with Matt McGloin next week at San Diego
Allen: "We've just got to play better, and I've got to do a better job of getting us ready to play."
Dennis Allen said Marcell Reece asked for the floor at halftime and Allen let him address the team
GSW at PHX starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Lee, Bogut; PHX -- Dragic, Bledsoe, Tucker, Frye, Plumlee. Out: Iguodala, O'Neal.
If that were McGloin, it would've been a pick. Luckily for Pryor, he wasn't accurate enough to get intercepted
Terrell Pryor back in. Judging by the fact McGloin is rocking a fitted cap, he TP2 may get rest of game
McGloin throws his fourth INT
Per replay, that's a fumble. Reid has challenge flag in his hand
Charles has 207 of KC's 277 total offensive yards. And 5 of their 5 offensive TDs.
If Andy Reid does anything but get Jamaal Charles in space, you'll know he's just toying with Raiders
That is unbelievable.
Raiders 57 plays. KC 27 plays. Again because of all the turnovers. And 119 yards in KC penalties.
For all the weirdness and whiff-tackling, the Raiders are out-gaining KC 396-197 currently. Turnovers are huge, obviously. But still.
OK, next drive Dennis Allen and Greg Olson are playing THREE QBs. Because this is wild now. 35-31.
Rivera with a great catch on a 14-yard TD from McGloin ... Chiefs lead down to 35-31
Real talk, DA's hair-brain schemes are ... working
Holmes with an amazing catch, losing his shoe
Now that it's 3rd and 7, and not 3rd and 5, Allen puts McGloin back in ... this is unreal
Dennis Allen picked the PERFECT time to pull McGloin ... right when he had a rhythm against KC defense
After Pryor's run, McGloin was ready to run in game but was held back. He threw his arms up
Onside kick right here?
I though Allen said he still wanted to evaluate Pryor? Down 35-17 at the half seems like the opportunity
That 1st half was an indictment on DA regime. Raiders aren't even close to showing pride/passion/discipline you want to see at this point
Brandon Flowers return questionable with a groin injury. Translation: "Ay, Charles Woodson! Hold up! I got the cups!"
This is worst McGloin has looked ... he's pretty rattled by this KC defense
Kendrick Lewis drops a pick 6 gift ... then gives the Raiders 15 yards. How charitable
