    Buy the team, then you can fire and hire whoever you wish.

    Could we use a real OC for a year? Wouldn't mind have someone actually there to help Norv as opposed to he with a position but no purpose (Shelmon)

    And as some of us pointed out... and Oakland is now showing to be quite the case... and Chicago will likely be the case as soon as they hire their new GM...

    Very very rarely do you ever see a newly-minted General Manager keep in place the HC from the previous regime unless the new GM is being promoted from within. GM's want their guy at HC. Thus, the only way that Norv and AJ weren't a package deal was if Norv was canned and AJ stayed. There would have been next to no way that AJ would have been canned and a new GM would have kept Norv, unless that new GM was Dean's kid.

    Which was why someone's hypothetical poll was labeled as "stupid" by some. ;)

    It was mentioned Norv needed help at OC, he needs people at the very least to help keep track of who is on the field and who is not (see broncos home game). I don't know if he'd want a 1 yr deal but it would be nice to bring someone with some attitude and whatnot into the fold

    I find this very disheartening. Reggie McKenzie will likely do a much better job as GM than the previous "draft the guy with the best 40 time" strategy. He will likely hire a coach who will be allowed to run the team without meddling from the owner. The Raiders will start acting like an actual NFL franchise. None of this is good news.

    Pretty sad when the Raiders - THE RAIDERS- fire two coaches for going 8-8 the last two seasons and we stick with our 8-8 head coach and keep the "lord-of-no-rings" as well. Everyone else in our division is moving and shaking: Broncos are winning in the playoffs. Chiefs fire Halley and hire Crennell. Raiders hire a new GM McKenzie and fire their coach... and we sit still.

    Ohhh yeah... that's right we fired our P-o-S Def-coord and our "I-really-have-no-responsibilities" Off coord quits. It tells me Shelman knows when to get off the sinking ship and not ride it to the bottom of the ocean like the Titanic. It makes me mad that we still have the head on this putrid snake we call the coaching staff. I lie awake at night wondering just how good we could have been over the last four seasons if we didn't have Norv as head coach.

    Yeah I agree, I can see all those Lombardi's all polished up in the showcase. If only Cam or Wade was promoted to HC.
