I love this time of year. The leaves are changing, if you live in one of those places. Around here, the temperature is getting to the point where you can consider doing stuff outdoors, or even dining on a patio if that’s your thing. The NFL season is picking up.
And we have our first NFL coach firing: Dennis Allen of the Oakland Raiders.
The Raiders won four games in each of Allen’s first two seasons and recorded an 8-28 mark during his two-plus seasons. The Jacksonville Jaguars at 6-30 are the only team with a worse record during that span.
Allen also has the distinction of being the first coach hired and fired in the Mark Davis era.
I have a great deal of confidence in the Raiders ability to remain winless this coming week. The question I have is: what happens the following week? Do they get the dead cat bounce against the Chargers? I wouldn’t put it past them. Perhaps I should keep an eye on the line…
