A couple of days ago, I wrote an article about Oakland Raiders G.M. Reggie McKenzie’s mistakes running the team. Some players that were allowed to leave the team are at least better than what’s been at their position the last couple of years. There were a lot of questionable moves with the head coach and quarterback situations being the head of it all.

I briefly mentioned the good McKenzie has done last time so today, we’re going to balance it and cover what’s good. Even the supposed bad things mentioned yesterday could be good as no one outside the organization knows what the plan is. I think I have somewhat of an idea and it’s not the 3-year plan that all the fans assumed with the organization allowing them to do so.

If the fans didn’t have that assumption, the stands would be empty for every single home game the Raiders have this year. “Be patient” is what McKenzie has said from the day he was hired as the G.M. of the Raiders so remember that. Anything that he or Mark said after that is just talk so hold on Raiders fans, if I’m right about this plan, we’ll start seeing results next year.
