Should Mark Davis Fire Dennis Allen if Raiders Start 0-4?

When Reggie McKenzie sold Mark Davis on his “3-year plan” for the Raiders to be competitive again, this surely isn’t what Davis had in mind. Granted, the problems that McKenzie and his hand-picked head coach, Dennis Allen, had to surmount were unprecedented in the league’s recent history.

Al Davis and the Raider way lives on in Mark Davis

The Oakland Raiders and Al Davis were synonymous for many years. The owner and former coach ran almost every aspect of the football operations and was the face of the franchise like no other owner ever has been or ever will be.
