    Chucky will do okay for the short term, not sure if he will continue to reach the players past that. You are going to play Chucky’s way or you will be gone. With a talented QB, Chucky can go far.

    DelRio gave up on Carr near the end of the season after Carr couldn’t overcome his injuries, so if Gruden gets a healthy Carr 12-4 and a Super Bowl appearance is quite possible. Without Carr? 6-10 or worse.

    okay in short if you look at the facts of what happend it is pretty obvious that bill callahan the coach of the raiders back then threw the superbowl to the tampa bay buccaneers same as pete the cheat did with the seahawks against new england.

    Callahan drew up a game plan that all the players were excited about leading up to the superbowl and the reason the players were all excited about the gameplan the whole week he originally came up with is because it called for a heavy dose of the running game from the raiders,that was the Buccaneers weakness was stopping the run.

    Then just a mere 48 hours before gameday,he mysteriously CHANGED the game plan where the majority of the plays drawn up called to pass against the Bucs which made no sense in the least because that was the buccanners STRENGTH was stopping the pass. You dont try and throw against Lynch in those guys.:cuckoo:

    Tim Brown said that the Raider players BEGGED Callahan not to change the game plan. WHY change a game plan the players were all excited about and had confidance in to game plan the other players did NOT have confidance in? makes no sense in the least UNLESS of course you have taken a payoff as callahan obviously did to throw the superbowl.

    In continuation-

    Tim Brown said that all of the Raiders players hated the plan to change the game plan.Jerry Rice is the only other Raider player to come out and publicly say the same thing,that he agrees with Rice on Callahan throwing the game.The others dont want to get into it all knowing there is nothing that can be done about it now.

    Brown said in all his years playing football going back to his days at pop warner,never in his lifetime from pop warner to high school to college,to the pros and all his time as an NFL player and all his time playing the game of football,no coach had EVER changed the game plan a mere 48 before the game,that they always went with the game plan they worked on the whole week. Jerry Rice said the same thing.

    Here is a more in depth story of it in case your interested.

    Hall of Fame receiver Jerry Rice, the Raiders' other starting receiver in the Super Bowl and now an ESPN analyst, backed Brown on his claims in comments to ESPN's "NFL Live" on Tuesday. He said the players found it "very unusual" to change everything at the last minute.

    Rice said the Raiders' game plan did change on the Friday before the Super Bowl and the team was surprised by that, "because you worked all week long on running the football." On Friday, Callahan put in a new plan that had the team throwing the ball more than 60 times.

    "Why would you wait to the last second to change the game plan?" Rice said.
    We all called it sabotage ... because Callahan and Gruden were good friends. And Callahan had a big problem with the Raiders, you know, hated the Raiders. You know, only came because Gruden made him come. Literally walked off the field on us a couple of times during the season when he first got there, the first couple years.
    Brown: Callahan 'sabotaged' Raiders in SB loss

    Some Raider fans I knew back then THEY could not believe he did not run the ball more often,They brought up an excellent point that the steelers on a monday night game that same year,THEY pounded the ball against them in a game in tampa bay with most the plays being running plays,the Bucs could not stop them as a result. The Raider players offensive lineman greatly outweighed the Buccaneers defensive players at the line of scrimmage and the raider players offensive lineman excelled at the running game.

    Callahan threw the game so his pal Gruden who hated Al Davis and Callahan hated as well,so that they would get the last laugh on Davis.Davis as you recall,HATED losing more than any NFL coach that ever lived. hense the JUST WIN BABY slogan he had.:biggrin:

    You can understand now WHY I sure hope Gruden does not bring Callahan back as their offensive coordinater. Just like pete the cheat carrol,bill belicheat and shady brady,same as them,he is a criminal who belongs behind bars.

    Gruden should do okay. I don't see any team in AFC West as a powerhouse.

    very true as well.

    and let's not forget he wanted out of Oakland so bad, he is willing to go in debt to the tune of over 1 billion dollars. . .you read that right 1 billion dollars. . .100 mil to pay Gruden, 850 mil in loans plus the cost of infrastructure, parking etc, just so he can livin' la vida loca in Vegas. . .he is going to have to sell. . .hopefully someone will make him an offer he can't refuse and he will sell before 2020

    If Davis had made half that effort to put that kind of money he gave Gruden to stay in Oakland,the raiders would be set to have a new stadium to be built in the future and none of this BS vegas relocation would be taking place.
