    and i feel sorry for him in the Raiders organization. He seems to be a very smart guy and can hold his tounge like the best of them. I wish they would just finally fire him so he can move on in his young career and hopefully coach a team outside of the AFC West, unless he comes and helps us out.

    I agree. I like Kiffen too.
    But if he gets fired before the season is over, I'm afraid it's back to college for him.

    Firing Kiffin now would NOT have any positive impact on the team but that's Al for you.

    Seeing that we are 10-0 against the Raiders, I really like Kiffen, shell, that other guy and any other coach keep the streak alive.

    :yes:

    i got no distinct hate against Kiffen, he seems like a good guy and I can't even fault him for taking on the Raider job since its a huge jump from being a college coordinator
    Still he is the raider coach, nuff said.

    The Raiders are the career killer franchise but Lane had absolutely nothing to lose!!!
    What's the worst that will happen? Will he have to go back to coaching college?

    Lane is trolling Al Davis in real life.

    He's a winner in my book.

    His dad Monte shoould get him a gig down in Tampa. Imagine him and Gruden on the same staff haha. Like half of TB's coaching staff would be cashing Al Davis' paychecks. The Bucs would hate the Raiders more than any AFC West team.

    After Sunday's game I'm convinced that this kid is in waaaaaaay over his head as a HC in the NFL. True, no one is going to be able to win with that team if they're not given any power, but he just isn't ready for this kind of pressure.

    No player has offered a quote in support of him. There are reports that the players do support him, but it can't be unanimous if no player is willing to put his name to an actual quote.

    He should be fired today as they have a bye this week.

    I'm sure Kiffin would be a great OC. Good luck to him.

    We should find a way to get him on our coaching staff. You can never have too many pissed off at their former employer Ex-Raiders employees.

    even if he goes back he's shown he can handle an owner on par with Ghengis Khan and can hold his own with an absolutely crappy team. He'll go back as a coach

    No. Lane Kiffin loses games in the final two minutes. Apparently (I can't confirm this) it was a liability he had coming into the NFL. He can't really engineer a two minute drive to save the game, which is the first sign that the coach isn't really all that intelligent on the play-calling side of the ball and rather the team is just talented enough to produce. In the Raiders' case niether was present. I wouldn't want to see Kiffin in the booth, considering our present OC isn't too bad and Norv really makes a lot of the calls.
