It was reported on Thursday evening that the coach of the Oakland Raiders heavily expressed his positive attitude about the Silver and Black team and its new look to the season ticket holders.

In the letter, he starts with the obvious in which the Raiders are building up a smart, tough, and disciplined new team. Coach Dennis Allen mentions that the mix with veterans and new talent this year will work perfectly for the Raiders, and the team will move forward.

Allen also mentioned three major steps that were covered in the 2014 off-season. One was the fact that leadership will be present in the Oakland Raiders locker room. He stated that this has been accomplished with the veteran signings during the free-agency. Allen stated that the locker is already feeling very positive and already sees leadership growing in the team.

The second step that was covered was the quarterback problem the Raiders had in 2013. Dennis Allen; in his letter to the season ticket holders, mentions that a veteran quarterback was brought on board that the new veteran is ranked in the top ten. He also mentioned that new talent was brought on board for the Oakland Raiders.

The last step that the Raiders took was the fact that the trenches were patched up. Allen stated that the defensive and offensive lines were fortified this off-season with veteran free agents and talented rookies from the draft.
