Raiders Not Trying To Be New England But Why Not
The last time the Raiders had a decidedly better season than was 2002, back when they played in Oakland, Tom Brady could count his Super Bowl rings on one finger and Josh McDaniels was an entry-level a sistant in the personnel department in Foxboro.Since then - over Milwaukee Brewers T-Shirts
almost 20 years - the Patriots have consistently racked up double-digit wins in the regular season and collected five more championships under the steady hand of Bill Belichick. Meanwhile, since losing Super Bowl XXXVII to the Buccaneers, the Raiders have only produced two seasons of 10+ wins and failed to win a single playoff game while rifling through an almost unfathomable 10 head coaches.So now that McDaniels, who worked his up through the front office and onto Belichick's coaching staff as a trusted offensive coordinator, has taken over the Raiders it seems a no-brainer Jonathan Villar Jersey

head coach but then he withdrew from the position shortly after landing it. McDaniels chose to return to his position with the Patriots instead.Bolden, who won two Super Bowls during his nine years in New England, says there obviously be similarities with what the Patriots accomplished and what the Raiders are attempting to achieve. But don't expect Las Vegas to simply be Foxboro West.It's like if you're used to your older brother babysitting, but now the parents are nowhere around and you're stuck with your big brother for the weekend," Bolden said of McDaniels."It's been cool these past years to see him going to Denver and Robin Yount Jersey
coming back to New England, and now I've had him since I was a rookie, and now he's where he is now."
