A Letter From Jim Fassel to Al Davis

16 11 2008

Rumor has it that former Giants coach Jim Fassel sent a letter to Al Davis expressing his interest in coaching the Raiders. I bet the letter went something like this: 

Dear Mr. Davis:

     My name is Jim Fassel and I am very interested in being the next coach of the Oakland Raiders. The following are reasons why I feel I would make a good coach for you.

     First, I am a tool. I will have press conferences in which I’ll put all my chips on the table and give the Oakland Raiders the soundbytes and attention they truly deserve. When you speak, not only will I listen, I will obey. I am so desperate to coach agains that I’ll personally change your Depends and clean your bedpan whenever necessary. That even includes halftime or during the 2-minute drill.

     Second, I have playoff experience….sort of. I’ve been there, but I’ll never take your team there in consecutive years. This is good, because you’ll know when you can book your trips to Boca Raton, the Evil Knievel museum or get your custom made Hanes Sweatsuits refitted.

     Third, I own a BeDazzeler. Imagine how sharp your trademark black sweat-suits would look with Rhinestones. It would be Liberace meeting The Cryptkeeper. Classic. It would also take the focus off your liver spot.

     Fourth, if you called my sideline and told me to go deep, I’d send Robert Gallery as well. It might be a 10 yard penalty, but it’ll throw the defense. We can call it Wild Al formation. If Joe Paterno can coach from the sidelines, so can we. Oops, I mean you.

     Fifth, I consulted with Brian Billick last year. He’s just an offensive genius, you’re the total genius. No one knows football like you. You’ve always had an eye for talent; Shanahan, Gruden, Callahan, Kiffin. If they listened to you sir, they’d be successful.

    Please sir, give me this opportunity to be the next tool of the Oakland Raiders. I am desperate. I can’t pay the bills and need the money bad. Plus, I’m just mentally retarded enough to take this job and be your second fiddle.

You know what is sad about this whole thing? Jim Fassel is a good guy and deserve a better coaching job than this.
