Raiders | Shell defends Walsh

Bill Soliday, of MediaNews, reports Oakland Raiders head coach Art Shell does not place the blame on offensive coordinator Tom Walsh for the team's struggles on offense so far this season. "I don't feel I have to defend anything,'' Shell said. "We're going to do what we think is best. This offense is not so much different from a lot of offenses in this league. But when you lose, people have a tendency to pick on you. That goes with the territory. But when we start winning - and we will - then the tone will change. And you'll wonder why, (since) we'll be doing a lot of the same things we've been doing." Oakland ranks last in the NFL in total offense.
