Raiders owner now speaking of a commitment to patience

The Raiders came into the  season with very little cap space and several expiring contracts they were picked by many to finish last in the league but even considering the obstacles the Raiders have as many wins as last season with 3 games remaining. Apparently for Raiders owner Mark Davis that is enough to keep Davis patient with the regime.

His father Al, who created the mystique of the Raiders and their “commitment to excellence” — along with a reputation for rash moves — might be spinning in his grave right now.

But Raiders owner Mark Davis said he’s trying to remain patient with General Manager Reggie McKenzie and coach Dennis Allen despite a 4-9 record, saying: “If you’re committed to something, you have to be patient with it.”

While Davis offered no promises during an interview with Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News, he didn’t sound like a man inclined toward blowing his team up — again.-ProFootballTalk.com

It must be refreshing for Raiders fans to finally hear of an owner who isn’t simply interested in reloading.
