Oakland Raiders Fire Chuck Bresnahan, Most Of Defensive Coaching Staff According To Report

The Oakland Raiders came very close to making the playoffs, but that hardly makes their season a satisfying one. There were too many mistakes, too many bad performances, too many issues that surfaced from both sides of the ball. And the penalties, all the penalties.

Interestingly, it looks as if Hue Jackson is focusing on one side of the football field to make some overhauls. The defense is getting the brunt of the pain apparently.

The Raiders had some pretty bad performances, but they were torched by some pretty average offensive football teams like the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, and the Miami Dolphins. They also gave up 38 points to the Buffalo Bills and 46 points to the Green Bay Packers. Add in the penalties, and it was a pretty tough year for the Raiders defense.

The Oakland front office appears to be denying these initial reports, although that hardly means these changes aren't in motion.

Senior executive John Herrera said "that's not right" in response to the report, when contacted by Comcast SportsNet California.
