    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Jun 14, 2013
    Had a chance to talk with offensive coordinator Greg Olson Thursday afternoon, his first interview since an introductory meet-and-greet with the media following his hiring. Olson: Well, we’re trying to identify, throughout this whole process, we’re trying to identify who are playmakers are, and I think we’ve done a good job with that. During Greg Knapp’s one year as the Raiders’ offensive coordinator, it wasn’t hard to find people critical of the team’s attempt to run an offensive system that wasn’t particularly suited to the players on the roster. Based on the reports out of minicamp, the Raiders have a lot of adapting to do on offense. The biggest thing for us as a staff is let’s try to identify who the playmakers are, who to get the ball to, and let’s put in a base system, build it from the ground up, and get the players familiar with a lot, kind of throw everything at them so they’ve got a real good feel of what we’re going to try and get accomplished.
