It was reported on the NFL website on Tuesday that Oakland’s owner Mark Davis told the press that there should be no more excuses for the Raiders not having a winning team.

Davis went on to say that Allen has all the tools to build a good team this off-season. This included the extra money that General Manager Reggie McKenzie saved in the last couple of years by balancing-out the salary cap, having a good draft pick in April, and for allowing Allen to have the coaches he wanted.

This will be Allen’s third year with the Oakland Raiders and is expected to make something out of the Silver and Black. The first two years were a little frustrating as the Raiders went 4-12 consecutively.

Well, Coach Dennis Allen has a good scheme for the team, but the personnel hindered Allen from having a winning season—too many inexperienced players, injuries, no leaders, and no quarterback.

Now, Allen has the money and a good round draft pick too. Plus, the Oakland Raiders have some promising players on the squad to make a solid base for the coaches to build upon.

So, Mark Davis is absolutely right when he said no more excuses. Davis also added that the team has “to hit it right now.” In other words, this is the opportunity for the Raiders to make it happen for next season and so on.

If the Raiders show too many struggles and little improvement next season, Dennis Allen will need to step away as coach, especially after having all these opportunities at hand.

However, it would be preferably better to see Allen succeed! So, let’s go Raiders! Just win baby!.
