Oakland Raiders: 10 Changes Al Davis Must Let Hue Jackson Make Immediately

The once proud Oakland Raiders franchise has seen better days; we know this.

The 2010 season marked the first time in eight years that the Raiders won more than five games since 2002, an incredible stat for a team that won 33 games between 2000-2002.

The past eight seasons they have won only 37 games; they lost 91.

Oakland owner Al Davis is one of the most important owners in football, but as of late he has been a bit "off".

Davis has fired five different coaches since the 2002 season and has spent time squabbling over money with almost all of them.

While he was once one of the best at what he did, his power and drive to do things his way has cost his franchise success in recent seasons. 

The Raiders went 8-8 in 2010, went 6-0 in the division, and almost doubled their point total from 2009.

Former coach Tom Cable had the support of the locker room, but it was Hue Jackson's offense that made the Raiders an actual non-loser this past season.

If Al Davis wants his Raiders to return to greatness, he has to let Hue Jackson do it his way.
