Madden: Allen was “playing without a full deck”

Madden: Allen was “playing without a full deck” 


posted by: vic tafur ( email , twitter ) | jan 15 at 3:47 pm



I hung out with former Raiders coach John Madden today at his man cave in Pleasanton, and the Hall of Famer said Raiders coach Dennis Allen was “playing without a full deck”  this season.

Oakland finished 4-12 in Allen’s first year on the job.

“He’s got a ways to go,” Madden said. “He was playing the game without a full deck. To be honest, they don’t have enough players. The cupboard was pretty bare. It would have been touch to do much more than what they did.

“If he’s going to do well, they gotta get a lot more … some teams need a quarterback or a running  back, or a pass rusher … The Raiders need a whole barrel of guys.”

Madden watches games in his man cave every Sunday, and a fan will get to see the 16 feet by 9 feet big screen (and eight other TVs) and take a ride on his Cruiser, as part of Visa’s NFL Fan Offers program. Here is the commercial.

I played in the Madden13 media tourney and rode Eli Manning to the title. Who’s got next?

How great that would be to hang out with John Madden and talk Raiders, watching games

At least real Raider fan will agree like Madden, Raiders need alot players = trade down, trade and/or unload the garbage

We need exactly what Madden said more players. Take the best available with all our picks. If we get a decent offer to trade down and pick up more picks go for it. We are going to be picking high next year to so between this draft and next years then maybe we can start to rebound from what Al Davis did to this franchise

Knapp and Hue Jackson were the biggest reason for our 4-12 season.
