Jon Gruden’s resignation as Raiders head coach could have thrown the team into disarray.

Instead, Las Vegas went to Denver and notched a decisive victory over the Broncos.

According to running back Josh Jacobs, Raiders interim head coach Rich Bisaccia brought a significantly different demeanor to the position than his predecessor.

“Man, the sideline … it was like [there was no] anxiety,” Jacobs said, via Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “It was weird. It was like everybody was calm. You didn’t have somebody cussing at you, or going crazy at the refs. None of that.”

Jacobs added that if a mistake or bad play occurred, everyone was able to move on seamlessly.

“[I]t was like, ‘OK, not going to harp on it, next play.’ The guys all kind of motivated each other,” Jacobs said. “You saw a lot of defensive guys standing up and offensive guys jumping off the bench when the defense made plays. I was like, that’s the right type of energy that we needed. I loved it.”

Jacobs had his most productive day of the season in Sunday’s victory, recording 82 yards from scrimmage with a rushing touchdown.

The Raiders will try to keep the good vibes going against the Eagles at home in Week Seven.

  1. That sideline demeanor will change after a few blatant bogus calls, it has to.
    THEYRE RAIDERS !!!

  2. Im glad Chucky is gone.I don’t agree with how it was handled but let’s move on to the future.

  3. LETS say for arguments sake that the Raiders WIN the Super Bowl…does John Gruden say that was his team he built and the other guy reaped the benefits. It would be ironic if that happened , because that’s what happen when Tony Dungy built the Bucs in 2002 and Gruden took them to the promised land.

  4. Raiders fans before the Bears game: “Best up and coming complete team in the division and conference. We have the best HC in the league!”

    Raiders fans today: “Thanks goodness Gruden is gone, I’ve been a raiders fan forever and couldn’t be happier!”

  5. It’s common knowledge that the Raiders are a dumpster fire that have major internal issues. This guy wins the drama hangover game and these delusional baf00ns put him on a pedestal, just wait….

  6. This could turn out great for the Raiders. Gruden was spinning his wheels and they’ve now been saved 6 more years of that. Even if Basaccia (or whoever their next permanent coach turns out to be) fails they’ll still be on to the NEXT guy before the Gruden contract would have ended.

  7. I think we all know that the raiders personnel is doing the best they can, but what is really going to cause this exposure of your HC. Oh and how quickly everyone turned on the legend that Jon Gruden in this highly difunctional organization.

    Geez, I thought my other team – the Lions were bad…..

  9. It’s actually funny that the Raiders could end up better by subtraction.
    No matter what the players thought internally, Everytime they looked at Gruden, they’d be wondering.

    **********

    Where he beat a Raiders team he coached and “built” the year prior.

    He gets flack for winning with Dungy’s team but it’s not like he hadn’t built a SB team in the Raiders prior.

  11. Conspiracy theory, Mark had those emails released to rid himself of the $100 million dollar mistake. The NFL has closets full of many skeletons to rid of any one at anytime. Next, need to send Mayock back to TV where is consistently bad decisions on personal don’t matter.
