Raiders head coach Dennis Allen says he likes his team

Despite all of the criticscm the Oakland Raider have received this offseason, head coach Dennis Allen really likes his team.

“I know there’s a lot of experts out there that might think differently,” Allen said, via the Contra Costa Times, “but I like this football team.”

Allen is looking forward to seeing what his guys can do in training camp.

“I like this football team,” Allen said again. “I like the players on this team and I’m excited to see what they can do once they get into training camp.”

Allen does admit that have a lot of work to do going forward.

“I’ve been pleased with the work that these guys have put in and, obviously, we’re not the finished product. We’ve still got a lot of improvement to do, but I wouldn’t say that’s any different than any of the other 31 teams. But I like their mentality, and I like the way that they work.”

I’m glad Allen likes his team.  I would have been really concerned if he said he hates them.
