TAMPA - What will become of defensive coordinator Rob Ryan?
He's stuck around as three head coaches (Norv Turner, Art Shell, Lane Kiffin) have been fired.
Having been interviewed before to be the Raiders head coach, owner Al Davis might grant Ryan another interview.
Or Ryan could be gone. That will be up to Davis, who does like Ryan.
"If he's not back next year, I'm sure he'll be a defensive coordinator somewhere else," said defensive tackle Tommy Kelly. "He's got a good resume so he'll be all right. Life goes on. He'll land on his feet, I know that."
Here's how the Raiders finished statistically.
*27th (360.9 yards per game) in total defense.
*31st (159.7 yards) against the run.
*10th (201.2 yards) against the pass.
Did Lane Kiffin ruin our season?
That was some of the chatter amongst fans and some media members.
Since the news that Lane's father, now former Tampa Bay defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin would leave to take the same job at the University of Tennessee, the Buccaneers have been pretty bad on defense and haven't stopped any running backs.
The latest was Michael Bush, who ran for 177 yards Sunday, including 129 in the fourth quarter.
*Bucs defensive end Greg White said the Raiders didn't do anything differently in the fourth quarter.
"They just came in and had the desire to go out there and play," White said. "We played hard but at that time, I guess they won, the best team won."
When's the last time someone said that about the Raiders?
