It seems that some Raiders players are becoming increasingly frustrated with Josh McDaniels.
A Las Vegas Raiders player has been seen endorsing a post that calls for the dismissal of head coach Josh McDaniels following the team’s disappointing 1-3 start to the 2023 NFL season.
The Raiders find themselves in a challenging situation, and McDaniels is facing mounting pressure to reverse their fortunes, as continued struggles could put his job on the line. Two standout players on the team, Davante Adams and Josh Jacobs, have already publicly expressed their frustration. Adams has hinted that he may not be willing to wait for the team to resolve its issues, while Jacobs openly voiced his weariness with the ongoing losses.
“I’m tired of losing. Let’s be honest… I’m tired of f***ing losing,” Jacobs told a reporter after the latest defeat to the Los Angeles Chargers, emphasizing that something needs to change.
Recent developments suggest that tensions within the team are escalating. Cornerback Marcus Peters, who only joined the Raiders in July, has shown his support for a post with the caption “Fire Josh McDaniels.”
McDaniels, who took on the role of head coach last season, has faced consistent criticism since his appointment, and the team’s performance has not helped his case. While an immediate coaching change seems unlikely, both fans and players have made it abundantly clear that they have doubts about McDaniels’ suitability for the position.
Of course, it’s possible that Peters’ like on the post was accidental, but the odds of that seem slim.
