Though it is unsubstantiated, there is supposedly some interest in Petrino from Rutgers if / when they fire Kyle Flood this year.
I doubt it would happen because of his "bad reputation" - which is nonsense, IMO, since he's never had academic or financial scandals, he just had a mistress - and I d...

First, the Saints look like a really good team. Keep in mind that the Raiders are looking at a 5 win season as a maximum, while the Saints are a SB contender.
Secondly, the Raiders are facing some injuries. Pro-Bowl caliber LT Jared Veldheer? Inured. Starting DT / DE? Injured.

Flynn was, actually, pretty good.
The team was not prepared to face a 'legitimate' pass rush to begin with, but it looked far worse then it needed to be with the loss of LT Jared Veldheer.

It's bitterly disappointing.
