Default Shell is Gone

Source: Shell set to depart as Raiders' head coach
By Michael Smith
ESPN.com


Oakland coach Art Shell is scheduled to meet with his staff at 2 p.m. ET Friday to inform them that he's done as the Raiders' coach, a team sorce told ESPN.com. Shell and owner Al Davis met for most of the day Thursday, but at this point, it is unclear whether Shell is resigning or is being fired.

One of the early favorites to replace Shell is defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.

Thanks for the link to the Shell hiring thread - let's see how this quote from that thread plays out in the next several weeks:

"I went out there and had a really good visit with Mr. Davis," Whisenhunt said by telephone, "and everything was very positive. But after being at that rally (on Tuesday) with 250,000 people I felt like my heart was really here in Pittsburgh."

I would be willing to pay big money to anyone who can convince me that Shell wrote anything football related on his clipboard this year - I know he was always writing on his clipbaord but I don't think it had antyhing to do with football - I think it was something like:
  • pick up box of twinkies
  • turn in Al Davis' perscription for anti-psychotic meds
  • hire Ted Hendricks to kick Jerry Porter's ass
  • quart of ice cream
  • watch tape of Super Bowl 11 for 500th time

But it's not even Art Shell's fault. If anything, he was never given the right people to succeed there. Al Davis has ruined that team and it doesn't matter who were to coach that team.

Obviously, that isn't true. Gruden seemed to do ok in Oakland.

What part of this season wasn't Art Shell's fault? Art Shell was the guy that hired Tom Walsh as OC... not Al Davis. Art Shell was the guy that couldn't/wouldn't put his grudge with Jerry Porter aside, for the good of the team... not Al Davis. Art Shell brought in Jackie Slater and Irv Eatman as O line coaches, both pro bowl players. Art Shell is a pro bowl, HOF player with 2 Superbowls under his belt... how could the O line possibly regress to be worse than it was last year under this kind of tutalege? I guess that's Al's fault too?

How is it that J. Porter and A. Walter are disciplined for their remarks against Tom Walsh and the pathetic, high school offense they were using, but Randy Moss was allowed to keep playing half assed football and never received so much as a slap on the wrist for his comments and actions? How is it that Art Shell preached about keeping team business in house, then runs off at the mouth about being back stabbed by someone inside the organization, to the media?

Please, explain how this season wasn't Art Shell's fault.

No, Al Davis isn't faultless in this... he hired Art Shell.

Art Shell... GREAT player, loyal Raider.... HORRIBLE coach.
