Martz was at his best as a coach when he led the St.Louis Rams offense, which appeared in two Super Bowls (one win) and was dubbed as the greatest show on turf.
In the last decade, Martz has had stops in Detroit, San Francisco and Chicago before he was left out of the NFL in 2012. Since leaving the Rams, Martz has not been as successful as he was when working with Kurt Warner, Marshall Faulk, Torry Holt and Issac Bruce.
I am not a fan of this idea.
Martz best days are behind him. His offenses have been on the decline since leaving the Rams. His stops in Detroit and San Francisco from 2006-2008 were some of the worse teams in the NFL.
Hopefully, Martz is just the first name to be leaked and the Raiders are looking at searching thoroughly for more viable candidates. With four more teams being eliminated from the playoffs after this weekend, the Raiders could be eying some of those coaching staffs for candidates.
Dennis Allen could be thinking of talking to a former co-worker from the Denver Broncos, who were eliminated Saturday. Allen spent one year in Denver as the defensive coordinator in 2011, so he has some connections to the organization.
But for now, Martz is the only candidate interviewed by the Raiders.
