50/50 Chance Of Raiders Firing Jack Del Rio

Could the Raiders move on from Jack Del Rio this offseason? There’s a 50/50 chance that he’ll return in 2018, a source tells Mike Florio of PFT. Jack Del Rio (vertical)

Del Rio and the Raiders inked a four-year extension back in January, but he might not get to serve out the deal. Typically, head coaching contracts are guaranteed for a fair amount, so the money committed to Del Rio could dissuade Oakland from making a change. But, at minimum, the 6-8 Raiders are giving it some serious thought.

Last year, Del Rio won 12 games for the second time in his career and brought the Raiders to playoffs for the first time in 14 years. Still, the Raiders are loaded with talent and Del Rio has yet to win a division title in his 10+ years as a head coach. There will be plenty of intriguing candidates available this winter and a few of those names could hold interest for the Raiders.

The Raiders face extremely long odds of making the playoffs, but they could still finish .500 with wins over the Eagles and Chargers in the next two weeks.

        Yah thats why they were previously were worse than the jags and now they are again. Then again the jags are good now and i have been a fan for them for so long it feels good to get a playoff game this year

    The comparison I am always drawn to is Mark Jackson. Great motivator, but terrible at X’s and O’s. They need a Steve Kerr.

      If that comparison is accurate then that would probably mean they’re bringing back Jon Gruden

        How does that equate to Gruden? Kerr never previously coached the Warriors. Plus it’s no guarantee he brings them right back to contention.

          In the sense that they’re both great x’s and o’s guys, not that they are being brought back.

    You want a disciplinarian, you go with Dan Campbell.

    Am I missing something? I know every sport is a “what have you done for me lately” sport, but I consider last season as lately. He did lose his QB this year to a broken back. He may not be quite the same yet. He lost his top WR, who also happens to be one of the best in the league. I’m not sure of other reason, nor am I sure I need one. He stays. And if you can bring up Jaxville the , you should’ve never hired him.

      Before Carr broke his leg last year Oakland was the hot new team that might take out the Pats. Well that flew out the window.

      Cooper and Crabtree are far from
      Being the best in the league.

    Del Rio is not their problem. After Carr and Mack their team is pretty mediocre.

    There problem is predictable play calling on offense and sub par defense. They need to get rid of downing and find an established offensive coordinator who isn’t experimenting with what might work versus what actually works without question.

    During a broadcast about 3 weeks ago Tony Romo said the Raiders look like a team that is not playing hard enough to win. That would be a coaching attribute. Im a Chiefs fan who watches all the Raider games also and i see a Raider team loaded with studs who need some coaching. This team has most personnel from last year and i had them winning 11 games.. I put no blame on Carr as I have watched his receivers drop everything thrown their way . Sorry Del Rio but this team isn’t playing for you and its time to go .
