The Raiders were blown out at home against the Saints on Sunday, their third straight blowout loss, dropping their record to 3-7 on the season. Raiders owner Mark Davis is not satisfied with that.
According to Paul Gutierrez of CSNCalifornia.com, Davis said after the game that he thought heading into the season that the Raiders were good enough that they should make a playoff run, and he’s upset that they’re not even close.
“I’m patient, but I want to see progress. Not regression,” Davis said. “I’m embarrassed, pissed, disappointed and I take full responsibility.”
Those comments might not bode well for the job security of General Manager Reggie McKenzie and coach Dennis Allen, although if Davis is describing himself as “patient,” it seems unlikely that he would fire the two people he just hired this year. On the other hand, Mark’s dad Al Davis wasn’t shy about shaking things up if he didn’t like what he saw. And it’s clear that Mark Davis doesn’t like what he sees right now.
It would be hard for anyone in Oakland to like the way the Raiders have looked recently.
