Oakland Raiders: Dennis Allen's Coaching Staff Shows a Change of Direction for Offense and Defense.

Elias Trejo – Feb 6, 2012

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.

NFL Hall of Fame: Tim Brown and 3 Oakland Raiders who deserve to be in the Hall of Fame


Elias Trejo – Feb 4, 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? 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. 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.
