Gannon back to the Raiders will never happen (sorry repsles)

Which reminds me, am I the only one who cringes with shame at the knowledge that John Herrera is associated with our team in any capacity?

He is surely the closest thing the NFL has to Lavrenity Pavlovich Beria.

That story looks great until you read the second line where Gannon says "I haven't actually talked to Mr Davis yet" ...

Sadly the people that are now running the Raiders have not got a clue on winning;

John Herrera; what has he ever done for the Raiders

Look like Russell is going to be the most expensive waterboy in NFL history; My boy Gradkowski has had a 2nd rounder tender put on him; meaning he going to be in Oakland for another year.

Interesting interview over at ESPN with Tim Brown. This was probably the highlight Q&A.

Quote:
What are the top three things the Raiders need to do to return to greatness?

No. 1, they have to get a coach that has a game plan and not just go along with Al Davis' game plan. Jon Gruden didn't go along with Al Davis' game plan, but he had a plan, and the plan worked. If the plan is working, Al will go along with it. He's going to fight you, but eventually he'll go along with it.

No. 2, they have to get veteran leadership in the locker room. The one thing the Raiders are known for is having great veteran leadership. I left in '04. Rich Gannon broke his neck and was out by the third game of the year. Jerry wanted out, and they trade him after the sixth game of the year. Suddenly they went from having one of the more veteran teams -- especially on the offensive side of the ball -- to having nothing. They've never really been able to replace that, and with everything that happens in the Raider organization, you'd better have some leadership in the locker room. Otherwise, it's going to be a crazy, crazy situation.

The third thing they need to do, and I don't necessarily think it will ever happen, but it would be good to see Al bring in a football guy. He had Bruce Allen for a while, but once Bruce left they've never really had someone in that position who can at least give Al an alternative to what he might be thinking.
