Raiders Offense Needs To Stay Wide Open Going Forward In 2014

In Week Six, the Oakland Raiders’ offense set season-high marks in total yards, passing yards and rushing yards. If this is Interim Head Coach Tony Sparano’s plan for staying competitive with a bad defense, it’s not necessarily a bad plan.

Raiders Fire Allen, Name Sparano Interim Head Coach But Nothing Will Change

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.
