OAKLAND (CBS SF) – The Oakland Raiders looked re-energized in fighting a good San Diego Chargers team through all four quarters before losing 31-28. “The Raiders really looked good,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio […]

The Oakland Raiders have a new head coach, for now, and they’ve just had their bye week. How will they fare against the 4-1 San Diego Chargers at home this week? Well, the Bolts are on a roll, and they look very good. The exact opposite can be said of Silver & Black, so don’t expect things to suddenly get better for Oakland now that Dennis Allen has been fired.
Including Sunday’s Week Five action, the San Diego Chargers are 4-1, the Denver Broncos are 3-1, and the Kansas City Chiefs are 2-3. Each team has a positive points differential, while the Oakland Raiders are 0-4 with a minus-52 differential. Yes, it’s going to be a long season for the Silver & Black.

Dennis Allen is just the latest coach held accountable the failings of the entire organization.
Dennis Allen never stood a chance. He was doomed the moment he put his John Hancock on the dotted line.
The Oakland Raiders have fired head coach Dennis Allen, CBS Sports confirmed Monday night. Allen went 8-28 in more than two seasons with the Raiders.
