The Oakland Raiders fired Head Coach Dennis Allen after an 0-4 start, and they have named former Miami Dolphins head coach and current Oakland offensive line coach Tony Sparano as the interim leader. However, this won’t change anything for the Silver & Black, as they still have an old and talent-bereft roster. What matters now is the plan for a permanent coach in 2015.
The Oakland Raiders defense needs all the help it can get every game, so when three linebackers could possibly miss the next contest, it’s something to be concerned about for the team. Heading into Sunday’s Wembley Stadium matchup against the Miami Dolphins, the Silver & Black also will be without backup quarterback Matt Schaub.
Diehard fans may want to close their eyes: with an 0-2 start and staring at possible 0-6 start now, the Oakland Raiders will be hard-pressed to avoid two ugly fates in 2014: they could end up worse than the 4-12 record they posted last year, and they could end up as the worst team in the NFL.
When you’re picked by everyone to finish last in your division, it’s a good thing to be heading into Week 1 of the NFL season with a healthy roster.
With the announcement late Monday that Derek Carr would the Oakland Raiders starting quarterback for their Week 1 matchup against the New York Jets on the road, it’s clear another new era has begun for the Silver & Black.
With NFL training camp underway, let’s look at the biggest storylines to watch for in camp the next month.
