Dennis Allen: Raiders have ‘improved tremendously’

Derek Carr Raiders

The Oakland Raiders have completed a weightlifting program, a rookie minicamp, 10 OTAs and a three-day mandatory minicamp this offseason, and coach Dennis Allen can already see improvements.  

“I think we’ve had an outstanding offseason,” Allen said, via “I think our team from the day that we started the offseason program to where we’re at now, we’ve improved tremendously.”

Quarterback Matt Schaub believes the team is headed for a great training camp.

“I feel like there’s never enough time to get everything you want in but I feel like we were efficient in the use of our time as a group, on the field, in the meeting rooms, away from football getting to know guys, developing that chemistry within the team,” Schaub said. “I feel very comfortable with where we’re at heading into the summer break.”

Allen, who won’t have direct contact with any of his players, believes his team will be responsible over the next five weeks.

“So you always try to tailor your message towards what your team is and what type of football team that you have,” Allen said. “We have a lot of veteran players here, so I expect those guys are going to do the things we need to do to be ready for camp.”

    What would it hurt to take a look at Vince Young….. Don’t let this guy retire without bringing him in for a tryout…. (NFL Rookie of the Year, 2 Pro Bowls, Playoff experience and Mobility). Vince has a career winning record of 31-19… He can help this team…even if it’s only to upgrade the team’s quarterback pool…

    Yah I used to practice like my hairs on fire Its just what are you gonna do when it matters,That matters,The Raidas need a better front office and an owner who doesn’t model himself after Jerry Jones because 500 is the same as half assed! Theres a reason why we unloaded Schaub and his 12 million dollar cap hit here in Houston and the Raidas picked him up, I mean you could of found a serviceable QB out there for far less $$ until your developmental QB was ready to be thrown in the fire! But anyway It starts at the top and trickles down!
