Some in Raider Nation want Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden fired.

That is coming off the Raiders’ 20-9 loss to the Chicago Bears at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday, in which the offense struggled in another slow start.

It is doubtful Raiders owner Mark Davis will fire Gruden into his fourth year of his 10-year contract he signed prior to the 2018 NFL season, but fans want it to happen by voicing their displeasure with Gruden who is also facing backlash for his comments he made about NFL Players Association chief DeMaurice Smith in a 2011 email to former Washington Football Team general manager Bruce Allen.

#FireGruden was trending on Twitter after the game.

The Raiders offense hasn’t scored a touchdown in the first quarter this season, but got going in the second half in each of the first four games. Not so in Sunday’s game against the Bears as the Raiders lost their second straight following a 3-0 start.
