Raiders Were What We Thought They Were In 2014, Look To Rebuild For 2015

The 2014 Oakland Raiders started out 0-10, but they split their last six games to finish 3-13. This was one game worse than the 2013 squad, which finished 4-12.

With all the talk about the Oakland Raiders acquiring San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh in a trade for draft picks, few seem to be considering the possibility the Silver & Black might retain Interim Head Coach Tony Sparano. One thing is certain: With an inferior roster, Sparano out-prepared and out-coached Harbaugh last week as the Raiders beat the 49ers, 24-13. That has to count for something.
