Bed and Breakfast Coaching
This is stunning. Simply stunning.
Owner Al Davis continues to stand by coach Art Shell, who continues to stand by offensive coordinator Tom Walsh and his last-place scheme. And all of them continue to ignore how ridiculously outdated and overmatched the Raiders' offense has become.
After the Raiders lost to the Broncos 17-13 in Week 10, Jordan revealed that the team went into that game with only three running plays.
As writer Nancy Gay wrote, that's less complicated than Tecmo Bowl. If it's even remotely true, it's just the latest example of why this team is useless. The offensive coordinator, Tom Walsh, literally was running a Bed & Breakfast for the last few years, totally out of football.
I'm sure the man makes a nice yogurt parfait, and I assume the rooms at his B&B are stocked with lovely ceramic squirrels and flowered bedspreads, but this is not NFL style coaching.
God, I'm glad I'm not a Raiders fan.
