Since this is Reggie's guy, I would think he has to live and die with how dennis does this year. I do think though, he could squeeze another year out for himself if they win 5-7

Again, agreed. Reggie could also play the "no one else would coach the team in the condition it was in" card. I think for Reggie, how the FA's play out will be a big factor and anything less than 6 wins, he's gone.

Three voted at this point, and I said 8-10.  It is hard to say what the needed number is but Mark is looking for for a turn around.  I don't think 8 is a problem barring horrible injuries to several key players, and 10 or more is a goal.  Playoffs are always the goal since anything can happen.

We start 3 of 4.  Possibly 4 of 4 and at worst 2 of 4.  Losing our kumbaya opener in which we are shell shocked and weren't focused.  But that is why we brought in winners from other organizations so we will be focused.

Then we win three straight after the break.  Then lose 2 of three either beating Denver's ass or the chargers at SD.  If we sweep them then they might as well be fitted for a pine box.

Then in the next six it's a double header with the chiefs.  Worst case split maybe sweep.

Beat the rams and bills.

Beat Denver in the snow.  Manning may not even play in the last game and if he does we can f**k him up in the snow.  SF is our bitches, they just don't know it yet.

So the goal is an undefeated season, playoff sweep and crush whoever comes out of the NFC.  How f*n hard can it be?229031_yeahthat.gif

I think RM job is safe anything past 5 wins. I think the bar is higher for DA. He needs to win at least 7 to keep his job.

RM has an insurance policy called Dennis Allen. Failure will be on him, and RM will replace him giving RM at least one more year.

That should be a non-issue since no one fires the superbowl winning head coach except Jerry Jones.

I think Reggie's job is safe with more than 6 wins now DA is the one I think will be out the door with a bad 5 game wins or less season. We do have a hard schedule with us playing 9 teams that where in the playoffs last season.

Compare 2012 with 2013.

The Texans went from 12-4 to 2-14.  The Chiefs went from 2-14 to 11-5.  Ravens won the SB than didn't make the playoffs. 

My point is every year is decided on the field and I don't think any team improved like we did.  It's like I come home from work and 15 of my 22 kids weren't there when I left.

It would hard not to improve from 2012 & 2013 with us being in Cap hell and almost no draft picks. There will have to a lot of improvement to be a 8-8 team I feel we need two more years before we become a power house once again. Don't get me wrong we are a better team and have improved quite a bit  baring any key injuries we should see a lot better pay on thee field. Our secondary is suspect and we need to be able to put more than 20 points on the board if we want to come out on top.

If the Raiders implode, both DA and Reg are out the door. If Reg's draft classes don't start producing big time, he is on a short leash.

In two years 80% of our starters in 2014 will be gone so yeah, Reggie needs to hope his draft picks pan out.

Well I hope they turn out and as for the ones that will be gone there will always be replacements. No team keeps all there starters Free Agency put a end to that.

Right but that's why I said his draft picks are going to have to pan out. As of now, only Sio Moore has shown that he's anything close to average. But you add an interesting twist to it because now if his FA signings don't pan out.........Who knows? Maybe Reggie will be known for "how to build a superbowl winner through FA".
