Al Davis wants Lane Kiffin to sign a letter of resignation that Davis drafted for him. Kiffin won't, apparently. It's too bad Davis seems to have totally lost it. The team played hard for Kiffin all year considering what he had to work with. The one bright spot of the whole thing is that Davis has eyes for Denny Green as the next coach, and the NFL just seems so much better with Denny Green in it. It really is a bizarre story out of left field though.

Dennis Green? Seriously? Didn't Al Davis SEE his record in Arizona?

I probably shouldn't be shocked, though. He thought ART SHELL was a good choice last year.

Because one year is enough to gauge how well a coach can turn a team around...

Is there any chance the Raiders can be relevant* again anytime in Al Davis' lifetime?

*outside of the draft...

I'm a long-time Seahawks fan so I vividly remember my Raider hatred, but I respect the old Al Davis and what he has meant to the League, both good and bad, and I feel sorry for what he has become in his old age, and what he is doing to Raiders fans. It ceased being enjoyable for me a few years ago and I can't imagine what it's doing to Raider Nation.

It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.

When you consider how much he was loved by Oakland and Raiders fans during the 70's, it makes his decline all the more tragic.

According to this, Davis has stated that he will not retire until he wins two more SuperBowls. Considering he is 2.5 years away from 80... I'm not sure what conclusions to draw, but this can't end well either way.

Preliminary diagnosis is torn ACL & PCL. I was inclined to pick the Ravens against the Patriots anyway, but with the key cog in the Patriots' offensive engine dislodged, it's now easier to do so.
