The Las Vegas Raiders fired head coach Josh McDaniels and GM Dave Ziegler on Tuesday evening, and regardless of dropping their head coach a few days in the past, the Raiders locker room vibes are by the roof.
Let’s begin with Davante Adams. On Monday, Adams was held to at least one catch for 11 yards, and was visibly annoyed after QB Jimmy Garoppolo overthrew him when he was open. That led to this on the sideline, seen frustration from a top-5 NFL receiver:
Quick ahead to Thursday afternoon, and Adams appeared like a very completely different participant. In truth, he appeared like a basketball participant, capturing hoops within the locker room in his down time.
Not solely that, however the locker room was open to the media right this moment, who observed a unique power within the room in comparison with the one which McDaniels ran beforehand. In truth, it appeared like a lot of the gamers within the locker room have been having enjoyable. Per The Athletic’s Vic Tafur:
Additionally, The Athletic’s Tashan Reed famous that the offensive linemen have been additionally having extra enjoyable post-McDaniels than they ever have been earlier than.

On one hand, this reveals how a lot the Patriot Manner has develop into ridiculed when it’s not in Foxboro. Kalyn Kaher wrote about former Patriot acoltye Matt Patricia, who ran a domineering ship with no enjoyable, in the end resulting in the downfall of the Lions. It’s not exhausting to attract that by line to the Patriot Manner not resulting in any enjoyable in any non-Patriot locker room.
Then again, it’s simply extremely humorous that the Raiders vibes skyrocket as soon as the McDaniels stench is away from the crew. McDaniels doesn’t appear to be a whole lot of enjoyable to be round, and this really isn’t serving to his case. I hope the Raiders maintain having enjoyable, sticking it to McDaniels with each made jumper.
