Raiders Have Exhausted Rich Eisen’s Patience

The Las Vegas Raiders have been a disaster at 2-6; that’s putting it quite plainly. Interestingly enough, even the legendary Rich Eisen now agrees with that sentiment. Considering the product that we’ve all seen out there; can you blame him?

Eisen has historically been one of the biggest supporters of the Silver and Black. He can often be seen preaching about the greatness of the Raiders as the anthem “Autumn Wind” plays in the background. Heading into the 2022 season, Eisen was as high on the Raiders as any major fan was. The addition of Davante Adams was supposed to help elevate this team to its former glory. That was especially true after coming off a playoff berth the previous season. In addition, Eisen also believed that Josh McDaniels would flourish in his second chance at a head coaching gig. Regrettably, none of that has happened.

“This has been an unmitigated disaster,” says Rich Eisen regarding the 2022 Las Vegas Raiders.

Eisen, while pointing out how wrong he’s been about the Raiders, admits that, up until Sunday’s disaster in Jacksonville, he still believed they could make a run behind Josh Jacobs. As we’ve seen now, that’s likely not happening at this point.

“My reputation is at stake. I felt it in my bones when Davante Adams went to the Raiders. I felt it in my bones when Chandler Jones went to the Raiders. The way that the Raiders finished up their season, I figured Josh McDaniels 2.0 wouldn’t look like Josh McDaniels 1.0. As a matter of fact, McDaniels 1.0 actually won his first six games as a Broncos coach. This has been an unmitigated disaster, and I’ve stuck with this team; I kept picking them on game day morning. I kept saying, ‘Ok, so them winning the AFC West is not happening.’ Without a doubt the worst take I’ve had in the eight-plus years of this show.”

McDaniels’ play-calling continues to come under question; even Adams himself pointed out that he’s confused on the matter. He used the old “if it ain’t broke, why fix it” analogy to describe Sunday’s in-game management by the coaching staff. As far as Eisen is concerned, it appears he’s done with Las Vegas—for now. Eisen ended the segment by quoting the legendary Goodfellas’ scene, “And now, I gotta turn my back on you,” as said by the late Paul Sorvino.
