Oakland Raiders Facing an Identity Crisis
Nobody really knows who the Oakland Raiders are, including themselves. As we enter the fourth and final quarter of the NFL regular season the playoff outlook is falling more and more into place, and the Raiders aren’t making it.
This season has been up and down roller coaster ride.
With three quarterback changes, injuries in key places and a barrage of mistakes all over the field, the Raiders have had trouble putting together back-to-back victories.
The Raiders have yet to reveal a clear-cut identity after posting a 4-7 record thus far and remain dead last in the AFC West division.
Despite losing last weekend, this team of underdogs stood blow for blow against the Tennessee Titans until the final moments of the game.
Oakland obviously has quite a bit to build off of, and rookie quarterback Matt McGloin has been able to keep the Raiders afloat through his first two career starts, winning one of them.
Over the last ten seasons, the Raiders have made many questionable personnel decisions and drafted players purely based on their athleticism. This old mentality has eventually lead to their incumbent play on the football field.
Head Coach Dennis Allen has done an okay job putting together a team with the pieces he has to work with, but it’s still hard to tell what exactly is going to lead this Raiders team to victories. Because up to this point it hasn’t been clear on what exactly can make that possible.
Looking at the Raiders it’s hard to even tell who their face of the franchise is. With the quarterback controversy that’s unfolding and no real superstar it’s hard to tell which direction this team is headed in. I mean, obviously they’re better than last year, but that’s not good enough.
An 11 year playoff drought isn’t something that should be seen from one of the winningest organizations in pro football history.
