Las Vegas Raiders Report Card: How We Scored

The second annual National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) report has been released. "For many years, our players brought up the idea of creating a 'Free Agency Guide' that would illuminate what the daily experience is for players and their families at each team," they stated. In 2023, they created the first version of that guide. Players were more informed about how their workplace compared to others across the NFL. According to the NFLPA, some clubs made "immediate" improvements based on the information they published. So, how did the Las Vegas Raiders score? The Survey Gives Former Las Vegas Raiders Head Coach A D Overall, the Las Vegas Raiders ranked 9th in their player survey. As pointed out by the survey, the team's facilities rate at or near the top of the NFL in nearly every category. They also mention that the club's shortcomings were tied directly to the players' opinions about their former head coach, Josh McDaniels. It's worth mentioning that the survey was taken while he was head coach. "The responding players’ strong negative assessment of the former head coach significantly brought down the club’s overall ranking," they stated. According to the survey, some of the issues raised by the players include poor scheduling/ time efficiency both during the week and while traveling, a need to improve trust and respect for players from the head coach, and a need for a better approach and winning culture. How Grading Works? The grading scale follows a letter grade system from highest to lowest. A+, A, and A- indicate excellent performance. B+, B, and B- indicate good performance. C+, C, and C- indicate satisfactory performance. D+, D, D-, F, and F- indicate less than satisfactory performance. They also follow a weighted scale that includes categories such as head coach, team, travel, locker room, training room, treatment of families, and club owners, among others. In the first year of the survey, they had slightly more than 1,300 responses, which is about a 60% participation rate league-wide, said the NFLPA. This year, they had 1,706 active NFL players complete the survey in full, which they said is more than a 77% response rate. Check the Las Vegas Raiders' complete report card here.
