The JR Report Podcast, hosted by Ryan Lipton, dives into the Oakland Raiders 2-3 start to the 2017 NFL regular season and why it might be smart for the Raiders to move on from coach Jack Del Rio after the 2017 season.
Now isn’t the time to move on. If Oakland misses the playoffs owner Mark Davis should look hard at moving on from Jack Del Rio.
Del Rio prides himself on defense and attitude, yet the defense has been horrible and the team can’t show up and be competitive in must-win games. (Last year’s losses to the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans and this year’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos).
