10 Burning Questions: AFC West

Peyton Manning

9. If Oakland doesn’t improve, will Dennis Allen get fired?

Well, reports suggest he was close to earning the axe after the 2013 season. In the offseason, the team added a bunch of veterans — Schaub, Justin Tuck, Lamarr Woodley — meaning ownership believes the team can be competitive. The Raiders are in the wrong division to think Tuck and Schaub are going to be difference-makers. If Allen’s job depends on how the team finishes in 2014, prepare for a new coach next year.
