    Disappointed Ryan missed out. He should move on now.

    The obvious follow-up question is, who do the Raiders hire next year?

    Screw Ryan, he tampered with our team and took Ted Washington. That was clear tampering.

    wow, congrats Lofton, always liked him, a great and underrated player. The Raiders seem light years away from being relevant though. Poor Brady Quinn or Jamarcus Russell.

    I must say I'm kind of shocked at this hiring. Will be interesting to see how he does.

    Maybe whomever is drafted by the Raiders pulls an Eli? Or not, because they don't have a father named Archie.

    Still no news regarding Marty's status.

    Cam Cameron's agent has been contacted by Huizenga.

    More on Lofton...

    Why are you shocked? I heard Davis set up an interview booth outside the unemployment office. :eek: Best of luck to Lofton though, always seemed like a good guy.

    Any Patriots fan has to be rooting for the Chargers to lose Cameron, no?

    Al Davis is defintiely unconventional. I'm sorry for those Raiders fans.


    1. They are destined to be bad until Al Davis sells the team.

    2. They have to endure a year with Bledsoe at QB

    3. They will probably mess up the draft

    No... Rob Ryan is being protected. Let a lamb rebuild (and lose), while the Raiders rebuild an Offense. Rob inherits the Team when ready in about 2009.

    Meanwhile Mike Shula was given a interview with the Dolphins. I wonder if this has anything to do with daddy? Wouldn't it be ironic if the Dolphins and Alabama coach switched coaching spots? I don't think Miami would ever hire Shula though.

    Doesn't Don have a senior position within the FO of the Dolphins? We'll see how much weight he still pulls around there.

    Bledsoe and the Raiders? Did I miss something?

    :confused:

    I don't see how anyone could confuse Bledsoe with JaMarcus Russell.

    What? Bledsoe on the Raiders?

    And what happened to this huge interest in McDaniels? I don't see his name there.

    * I live about 25 miles from Oakland and the media out here wonders why anyone would want that job. Can't pick your own coaches, players or what offense your going to run. About all you can do is stand on the sidelines and watch the game. Art Shell was perfect -:)
