Bottom Line

Sparano is a tough, hard-nosed, grinder of a coach and football teams always take on the personality of their head coach. The talent is definitely there on the team to win and as Sparano’s mentality spreads throughout the building, the Raiders will win more. The good thing about Sparano’s mentality is that it matches his philosophy and his philosophy matches the personnel of the Raiders as they are now.

That is how you get the most out of your players and you will see dramatic increases in production across the board. For those of you that are worried about the coordinators, you shouldn’t because they only call plays according to the head coach’s game plan and philosophy. And most of all, he is the kind of coach that can change a locker room culture fast as he did in Miami with his 1-15 to 11-5 turnaround.

He is exactly just what the Raiders need right now!

And if Gruden doesn’t want to come back, he’s the man for the job long term too.

As a matter of fact, the Raiders would have been better if he were hired originally instead of Allen.

But either way, the Raiders will be a different team after the bye!

Just win baby!
