Allen on `Bountygate,’ Raider defense

An excerpt from Raiders coach Dennis Allen at the NFL meetings on Sirius XM NFL radio discussing his former employer, the Saints, and their penalties for bounties, and the potential of his Oakland defense:

Despite all the lore of the Raiders being a dirty team, Al wouldn't have paid bounties for taking out players. He expected you to take out players as part of your regular salary. Take out some big players and your next contract might be bigger, but there wouldn't be a specific bonus tied to taking someone out. Al was too smart re: the rules, and too much of a bad ass to expect his players to anything less than hit people as hard as they could.

So in that sense the fact that the Saints had to pay people extra to get them to hit Favre or Warner harder is kind of sad. Weren't their players already motivated enough?
How do you think that the media would have spun it if the Raiders did do it? Can you imagine the on slot of CRAP that would flow from "THE DIRTIEST TEAM IN SPORTS" OR  How about this one "THE GREATNESS IS IN THERE BOUNTY HUNTING"...... Now the Saints fly under the radar with some small fines and a slap on the wrist...... Priceless.....You know that the NFL will try to glaze over this one....... Classic NFL.... :o
Well Dennis Allen could be in trouble because he was there during the time that bountys were being put up and could get in trouble, but it is very unlikely.

Raiders 2012 Defense: The Dennis Allen Effect
http://www.lockerpulse.com/News/Raiders-2012-Defense-The-Dennis-Allen-Effect-S2845066/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Oakland-Raiders

"If the one year turn around of Denver’s defense is any indication, the hiring of Allen could do wonders for the Raiders defense. In one year, Allen successfully converted Denver back to a base 4-3 defense. Despite the lockout shortened offseason, the Broncos defense improved from 32nd to 20th in total yards, 25th to 18th in passing yards, 31st to 22nd in rushing yards, and 32nd to 24th in scoring defense. Of course these numbers do not reflect an elite NFL defense, but let’s look at what else they had to overcome. Despite being the 6th ranked 3rd down defense in the NFL, with opponents only converting 34% of 3rd down opportunities, the Broncos defense was on the field for an average of 32:04 per game. That number makes for the 5th highest average in the NFL. Getting a chance to rest on the sideline is imperative in a defense’s success. The vast improvement of the Broncos’ defense in one season despite those stats, is impressive. Throw in the fact that the Denver offense had the most lost fumbles in the NFL (17), and the and 3rd lowest 3rd down conversion rate (31%), it is clear that Dennis Allen’s defense consistently found themselves with their backs against the wall. Despite all of that, they carried their team to an AFC West Title, and a trip to the playoffs."

"Saunders' knowledge key to Raiders offense"

Saunders' knowledge key to Raiders offense
by Paul Gutierrez, CSN Bay Area

"...Knapp's West Coast offense sensibilities meshed a tad with Saunders' vertical-game acumen and knowledge of the roster?

It makes sense. A lot of sense, especially when you throw in the continuity factor.

Because remember, it was Saunders who actually devised each and every gameplan last season. Hue Jackson then used it like a menu, picking and choosing from it the actual plays to call on gameday. Plus, Saunders was the de facto quarterback coach. So he knows firsthand how much Carson Palmer could absorb in being flipped, so to speak, from a Darryl Lamonica mad bomber-type into a Rich Gannon accurate dink and dunker-type, and just where Terrelle Pryor is on the developmental scale.

Consider: Oakland was ninth in the NFL in total offense (379.5 yards per game), seventh in rushing offense (131.9), 11th in passing (247.6) and was tied for fifth in completions of 40 or more yards (14) and tied for seventh in rushing TDs (16).

Imagine what Saunders can do with an entire offseason "advising" Knapp and reported new QB coach John DeFilippo and new receivers coach Ted Gilmore on how to best use so many weapons...so many healthy weapons."

Stoked to have Saunders back.

Still pissed that Knapp is our OC. i believe in people getting 2nd chances and Knapp is a run heavy OC.

What im really most pissed off about on Offense is the talk of us transitioning to the WCO. Granted the WCO worked out well for us once previously (Gruden era) I dont know how good its goinf to be this time around. We wont have the MVP QB (Gannon) throwing to the 2 greatest WR's in the history of the game (RICE & BROWN)... I understand its a dink and dunk offense. But Al Davis philosphy has always been the vertical game. McKenzie/Allen are spitting on Al Davis grave for even contemplating this idea.

Plus there is no greater specticle as a fan then watching a QB take his shots down field. get ready my friends for Carson Palmer to look like Alex Smith.. If we completely ignore the vertical game then I'm turning up Alamaeda with a ski mask & meat cleaver.

Shame to see such negative thoughts through this forum.

I oppose Go Raiders!!!!

Is there no-one here who thinks that a ground up rebuild with a group that can grow together has the potential to put this team back on top for a long time?

We've spent the last 9 years working to the Al Davis single season championship plan and for 9 years we have failed miserably.  All the comments I'm reading look like everyone is expecting the new guy to come in and win us a superbowl this year ???!!!? Did you all really think that was likely?

I wouldn't put your hopes on the play-offs this year or even next, but I would expect to see disciplin and consistency over the next couple of years. Building a team that that not only wins one championship and then fades away but becomes dominant.

I know we have all waited 9 years for change and we are all desperate to get back to winning but be patient and give these guys a chance.

For God's sake, let the man work and at least see what he has to offer before you start tearing him a new one!

I'm with you Essex Raider. I'm tired of waiting to get back to the playoffs like everyone else, but I think a reorganization was in order, and like you...... I like the young, new staff that could be here together for a long time. Obviously if they aren't successful and we end up with a whole new regime in a couple of years......well......I don't even want to THINK of that possibility. But for right now, I'm going to be optimistic and enjoy what could be a new "golden age" for the Raiders. (Please!)

I agree with you both 100% ;)  We've all (well most of us) been yelling for a complete house cleaning for years....well here it is!  And way the fuck overdue for this Raider fan! 

I'm excited and ready for them to rebuild our franchise the right way ;)

Count me in as well.

I am COMPLETELY on board with the new staff.  We have been trying to do it the "other way" for years and haven't done squat. 

And for the nay-sayers, if you survived JaFatass you can survive this  :)

I am looking forward to a young, energetic, fiery young coaching staff with the will to win.

GO RAIDERS
WELL.........THERE ALREADY STARTING TO SAY WE WILL "NOT" HAVE A GOOD SEASON NEXT SEASON DUE TO THE NEW STAFF........I UNDERSTAND THIS BUT I AM SO FREEKIN TIRED OF LOSING SEASONS WITH  EXCUSES.....WE HAVE NO CHOISE BUT MAN ITS AS CLEAR AS DAY THAT WE ARE "REBULDING" AND AFTER THE LAST 10 YEARS IM SICK OF IT! I GUESS WE JUST HAVE TO SEE.........SO FAR THE TEAM IS "MUM" ON THERE VIEW OF THE CHANGES.... THIS MEANS THEY ARE NOT HAPPY.......TRUST ME, CONSISTANCY IS KEY TO WINNING AND WE JUST KEEP STARTING OVER......WE COULD HAVE KEPT SOME OF IT BY NOT HIRING GREG "TAKE A DIRT KNAPP" THAT I AM "SURE" WILL HURT OUR TEAM......HE SUCKS DIRTY BALLS.......OUR OFFENSE WILL SUFFER.....IT SURE IS GOING TO BE HARD TO WRITE THE CHECK FOR SEATS THIS SEASON......WHEN LAST YEAR AT THIS TIME I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING OUR TEAM......NOT SO THIS SEASON....MY WIFE REFUSES TO GO THIS SEASON.....LOOKS LIKE A SINGLE TICKET SEASON FOR ME.......

I completely understand your doubts with our staffing choices but saying that you won't be looking forward to this year's team??

It is and always will be the Silver & Black!

C'MON RAIDER GREG!!!!!!!!!

Obviously if they aren't successful and we end up with a whole new regime in a couple of years......well......I don't even want to THINK of that possibility. But for right now, I'm going to be optimistic and enjoy what could be a new "golden age" for the Raiders. (Please!)

I agree with you both 100% ;)  We've all (well most of us) been yelling for a complete house cleaning for years....well here it is!  And way the fuck overdue for this Raider fan! 

I'm excited and ready for them to rebuild our franchise the right way ;)

Count me in as well.

I am COMPLETELY on board with the new staff.  We have been trying to do it the "other way" for years and haven't done squat. 

And for the nay-sayers, if you survived JaFatass you can survive this  :)

I am looking forward to a young, energetic, fiery young coaching staff with the will to win.

Is there no-one here who thinks that a ground up rebuild with a group that can grow together has the potential to put this team back on top for a long time?

We've spent the last 9 years working to the Al Davis single season championship plan and for 9 years we have failed miserably.  All the comments I'm reading look like everyone is expecting the new guy to come in and win us a superbowl this year ???!!!? Did you all really think that was likely?

I wouldn't put your hopes on the play-offs this year or even next, but I would expect to see disciplin and consistency over the next couple of years. Building a team that that not only wins one championship and then fades away but becomes dominant.

I know we have all waited 9 years for change and we are all desperate to get back to winning but be patient and give these guys a chance.

For God's sake, let the man work and at least see what he has to offer before you start tearing him a new one!

So what happens when we go 5-11 or 6-10 next year you feel the same way? Knowing the squad you have now ...is easily a 8 win team maybe better! ...if u recall we did try rebuilding the right way already...makes me sick people forget that.... So you're telling me...that hiring Kiffin (Rookie: college coach) the youngest coach in NFL history and drafting a raw worthless QB (jbusto) with hopes and dreams he delivers a SB .....but turned out he delivered a pile of shit!... We drafted and rebuilt with a franchise RB in DMC ....drafted what Al was hoping was a franchise WR in DHB...these moves in no way shape or form fall into the category...of what Essex Raider is saying "that the last 9 years were built for 1 year championships" is bullshit and insulting after 7 straight 11 loss seasons (NFL Record) ... Now I'd say  the last 3 years we built adding on to what we thought would be a good team and arguably we could have won 10 games the last 2 seasons..........So to say sit down and shut up and wait 2 years...is over the top for this Raider fan.... We've rebuilt twice in the last 9 years now we're going for a 3rd?.... This time I will NOT give any slack in fact they better fucking show me something or I'll continue to publicly slam them! ....The days of the 3 year plan are over!... Look at teams like ARI, DET, CIN, or hell even BAL sucked then got Flacco and been a contender since, all teams that use to suck then in one or two years they contend! ....What I am saying is modern day teams gel much faster then the old days...good teams that is...coached well....we got a raw GM and HC that are in way over their heads and too Me if Allen can't win at least 8 games he doesn't make it to year 2 ....or it'll be a long 3 year stretch of moving backwards....or sideways...we were literally plays away from really moving forward and taking the next step....blowing up this team and starting over would be stupid!.... They should add on and tweak the roster a little and coach some games....maybe we can pick up right where we left off...but we won't probably cause were the Raiders.

Whats discipiline?

is that like where vetran players wake up one day. Go to training & are suddenly in awe & buy into a 6 foot 180 pound 40 yr old rookie head coach? Oh yeah because Dennis Allen demands respect.

sSorry for oozing sarcasm.. But This Raider team has seen a lot of Coaches & Co-Ordinators over the last 9 years & this is by far the greenest staff assembled (Green is todays buzz word for out of there depth)

Its going to be a long training camp & I'm sure the youth of Dennis Allen is going to rub a vetran the wrong way (Why? Because Dennis Allen is going to want to show who's boss)

This team can come flat out the gates & Dennis Allen will be the next Raheem Morris. Vetran players will shut this kid out if we lose & there's nothing he can do. We can only hope that we win & win early so the playing group buys into Dennis Allen.

"Raiders staff is green in key areas"
Bill Williamson, ESPN

"If there is a criticism about the new-look Oakland Raiders, it's that they are inexperienced at key leadership spots.

The Raiders continued that trend Monday by naming Stanford co-defensive coordinator Jason Tarver as their defensive coordinator. Tarver is 37.

Tarver is considered a bright, young coach, and he is clearly highly intelligent. He has a degree in chemistry and earned his master's degree in biochemistry and molecular biology. He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

But the truth is, he is going from being a co-coordinator who didn’t call plays in the college game to being a defensive coordinator in the NFL...

I’m not saying this group will not succeed because of their inexperience. All of these men have great potential. But they are going to have to grow in their roles together."

Dennis Allen's "after press conference" questions/answers with writers (audio)
« Reply #590 on: February 06, 2012, 05:05:47 PM »
These "after the conference" sessions are often more interesting than the actual press conference...and we usually don't get to hear this part. More intimate and candid I think.
