Chuck Bresnahan has to go. The Raiders defense was the weakest of weak links this year. They ended the season ranked 29th in total defense. In Bresnahan's four seasons as an NFL defensive coordinator his best defense ranked 25th in the league. Beyond the rankings the Raiders' defense was as soft as a Al's velour jumpsuits during crunch time in 2011. True, you can't coach effort, but you can motivate it and Bresnahan and his staff failed impressively in that endeavor.
Somebody smart once said, 'insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.' Watching Bresnahan call zone blitzes and cover two time and time again against the Chargers, despite their ineffectiveness, confirmed my suspicions. The talent is there on defense, they just need a competent leader.
