The Raiders announced what had been expected for weeks. Chuck Bresnahan will be the Raiders new defensive coordinator.
It is a disappointment to most fans. Bresnahan doesn’t have a great track record leading defenses nor was he great when he we was the Raiders coordinator.
One drawback of hiring Bresnahan is that every defensive struggle will be blamed on him, instead of the players.
Will Bresnahan stand up to Al Davis? Will Bresnahan command respect from his players? Is he capable of motivating his players?
There are a multitude of problems with Bresnahan, not the least of which is his track record.
He’s never lead a top NFL defense. He’s never lead a top NFL position group.
The only hope is that Bresnahan has learned from his failure and it is finally his time to shine.
