There will be no team in the NFL next year that will be better positioned to defend Denver quarterback Tim Tebow than the Oakland Raiders.

New Oakland coach Dennis Allen was the Broncos defensive coordinator last season. He practiced against Tebow every day — so there will be no surprises when Allen has to prepare to face Tebow twice next season.

Sure, the Broncos will try to build Tebow’s game in the offseason, but Allen knows Tebow's nuances and how the Denver coaches approach their game plans with Tebow.

It doesn’t necessarily mean the Raiders – who were gutted by Denver and Tebow in November – will shut down Tebow in 2012, but there is no defensive coach in the league who will know more about Tebow than Allen.
