What Would The Raiders Be Like Without Al Davis?

I hear a lot of talk about Al Davis needing to quit, die or just keep his hands off of the Raiders as far as day-to-day team functions go. If any of these situations occurred, what would happen? Would Amy Trask take over if Al decided to die? Would his son? Personally, I think things would get worse before they got better.

I hope it does happen because getting "a little worse" to get better is fine with me.

The ship has been sinking for going on six years now and I'm damn tired of watching the horrid, unenthusiastic play every week.

Maybe Dibartolo will come in and be a part owner and put this ship right?  He might bring people in to the front office to get believers on the field. We have a boat load of talent, but if they don't believe in themselves or each other and what they're doing, then they end up getting tired and giving up is easy because it's been going on for years. 

A complete front office makeover, maybe a complete coaching changeover as well, might keep half the team and start with a new attitude with younger players. I know we are not known for rebuilding, only reloading, but come on! With the top 5 draft picks every year we can't afford any veteran talent, the way the rookie contracts are we will be doomed to say in the gutter forever.
