Reggie McKenzie thinks some of the contracts on the Raiders roster are "Out of Whack."Â This is nothing new of course, if you ask the 31 other owners in the NFL, they would say the same thing. For years Al Davis gave away big time contracts that made other owners cringe. The contract he gave to Nnamdi Asomugha was one of the many examples of a contract that was "Out of Whack." A cornerback was set to make over $16 million in a season or the average of the top five quarterbacks in the league.

Dennis Allen has hired Jason Tarver as the Oakland Raiders new defensive coordinator. This comes not long after Allen hired Greg Knapp as Oakland's offensive coordinator. Now that Allen's staff is complete, it appears that the Raiders offense and defense will have a different look than we've seen in recent years. Oakland's offense normally features a vertical passing game that is set up by a power run game. The defense usually has a lot of man to man coverage and they rarely disguise their pass coverage. It appears that all this may change with the new coaches. Let's take a look at a few changes you may see in 2012.

Congratulations to the 2012 NFL Hall of Fame inductees: Curtis Martin, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Dermontti Dawson, Willie Roaf, and Jack Butler. Anytime you get voted into the Hall of Fame it is a high honor. Tim Brown was a finalist for this year, but did not get voted in. His time will come, but the question is when? Â Brown has 100 touchdown receptions, 14,934 receiving yards, 1,094 receptions, and 19, 679 all purpose yards. That is good for sixth all-time or better in all of those categories and should be good enough to have him in the Hall of Fame. Brown wasn't only a top tier receiver, he was a top tier football player as he also returned punts and is fifth all time in punt return yards.Â The Oakland Raiders have 13 players in the NFL Hall of Fame, but the reality is they should have more. Let's take a look at three other Oakland Raiders who deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.

Once again, the Pro Football Hall of Fame has shown itâ€™s irrelevance to the game and alarming detachment from reality by excluding Tim Brown and others from its membership.

We have written plenty about the free agents that we would like the Oakland Raiders to target over the last few days, but free agency is a two way business.
