Final 3 Games Will Tell Us a Lot About Dennis Allen, the Oakland Raiders Even if the Oakland Raiders give Dennis Allen another year at the helm, the final three games of the 2013 season will tell us a lot about his ability to be an effective head coach. It should tell Oakland’s decision-makers something, too. If Allen can’t get the players to play for him now, there’s not much hope that he will be able to rally his teams in the future.

Although he completed only 10 of 24 passes in Oakland's 40-7 championship victory over the Houston Oilers, two went for touchdowns. Oakland then lost Super Bowl II to the Green Bay Packers 33-14.
Lamonica was named player of the year again in 1969 with very similar numbers: He completed 221 of 426 attempts for 3,302 yards and 32 touchdowns. However, the Raiders lost the AFL championship game 17-7 to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The AFL merged into the NFL in 1970 and Lamonica remained with the Raiders until his retirement after the 1974 season. For his career, he threw 1,288 completions in 2,601 attempts for 19,154 yards and 164 touchdowns. Lamonica also scored 14 rushing touchdowns.
