The Raiders sure work in mysterious ways. Three-quarters through this dismal season of offensive ineptitude they decide on a "New" offensive coordinator. John Shoop, tight-ends coach, has been named the OC for the remainder of the 2006 season replacing Tom Walsh. Most fans will probably give a prayer of thanks tonight. We true fans of the silver and black endure. Hopefully Shoop will bring some creativity and spark to our offense. Maybe Shoop is our early xmas gift from uncle Al. We'll see.
Thanks Tom Walsh for giving it the ole college try and damn near sinking the ship. Welcome aboard John Shoop and may the remainder of this season prove you capable of the task at hand.
