I really think mark davis needs to be patient

I really think mark davis needs to be patient 


he really needs to give Reggie McKenzie and Dennis Allen at least 5 years to create this thing they are working on . I mean he has another year of no draft choices and dead money to fight through from the Al Davis era , so what else does anyone expect , plus he lost a #1 and  2 #2 's on palmer and gets nothing to show for it from the nfl , meaning this is what Oakland should have  given up for palmer , a 7 th rounder for palmer .
So really the first year of greatness should be scheduled for 2017 or 2018 , and we will have a complete team then .

They have this season and next in all honesty. After that if they are not on the road to success they are gone. Mark is going to give them 1 year of salary cap room and a draft to prove themselves. He cant afford to do a 5 year project, the team will be bankrupt by then with the way attendance is falling. He has to make a turn around rather quickly or risk being a bottom dweller forever.

In this article Mark says he will give Reggie the 5 years on his contract to turn the Raiders around.  http://forums.scout.com/mb.aspx?s=66&f=1887&am p;t=11476032

Does shed some light on the situation. As I figured not everyone is going to get the 5 year plan. I hope that they can draft well this coming week and start to build on something because of it. I dont expect the playoffs in the next couple of years but I dont expect double digit wins in the next couple of years. If not we are no better than when Hue was on the sidelines and thats not progress.

mark will,he has no choice. Reggie came highly rated, from a perenial winning team. Things won't change over night, but should be better by next year. A lot of teams got from cellar to 1st, happens every year in one division or another. just got to get the right people in the right positions. This draft will tell us a lot about Reggie and if he can get it done. But until he has a full draft with picks in every rd, we will not get a chance to fully see what he can do, that's why I say next year, if no improvement then, then were in trouble for years to come.
