Art Shell fired after spending record 17 1/2 weeks on hot seat

Art_shell_fired_1As predicted by the Hernia, 18,000,000 fans across the country, and every NFL employee outside the Raider organization, Art Shell’s burning ass was finally let go tonight after spending a record 17 1/2 weeks on the hot seat, en route to an abysmal 2-14 season.

Hernia plea:

Matt Millen, please hire this man.

UPDATE – Believe it or not, this is actually true:
By midseason, Shell demoted offensive coordinator Tom Walsh, whom he hired straight from a dude ranch, and replaced him with John Shoop.
