Title: Raiders Coaching Staff
Post by: Randy on January 03, 2011, 10:22:50 PM
Maybe this year is different, since Cable still had a year left on his contract last year, but that contract is going to expire on January 18, 2011. Al Davis is "contractually obligated" to tell Cable by January 18th whether or not he intends to exercise the one-year, $2.5 million option (a half million dollar pay increase) on Cable's contract.

Things going against Tom is a 3 win improvement when u consider Al has

1. Cut Jamarcus
2. Hired an OC
3. Drafted awesomely round 1 thru 7
4. Had an easier schedule in 2010 compared to 2009

don't get me wrong sweeping the division is nice, but when u play division games that often. The playbook takes a backseat to matchups where players play on instincts.

& any of the players who says Cable is a players coach only needs to know that Al wouldn't fire Tom unless he believed his having an upgrade. I've just gone thru a transition at my work where the CEO has just been fired and he was a workers boss. Really upset to see him go. But the new guy is a real cut throat leader on the front foot. I don't need to like my new boss but i can respect him for his vision and getting to the goals his set out.

If Cable does get let go, don't all whinge about Al being a terrible GM. He's proven his critics wrong by cutting Russell, hiring an offensive coordinator and having a solid draft. Cable is to blame for translating that into only 3 extra wins.

Chucky had two back to back 8-8 seasons before turning this team around. But he did not have half the mess to clean up that Cable was left with. The JaBusto situation can not be understated. I have heard "experts" say that drafting the wrong franchise QB can set a franchise back 4 years or worse. look no further than the Lions, Browns, Bengals, Redskins, Chargers, and Ravens.

Cable has earned the right to one more year. If next year shows no improvement (by that I mean playoffs or a MUCH better record), then I too will join the chant for a new head coach. Just remember as long as Al is running the show, the pickings will be slim.

I got to agree here....What great coach will want the owner to pick his staff.......NONE! What great coach will let the owner pick the Draft picks.....NONE......Al Davis is a control freek with a HUGE ego. He cannot be upstaged. The coach cannot be bigger than the great Al Davis and if he is.......He is Gone....The other problem is Mike Taylor and John (douchbag) Herrera, both are Snakes that hide in bathroom stalls looking for a foot to tap......This poison MUST be flushed out of Alameda for us to become great......The Cancer has taken its toll.....Fuck these Fools..... :-X

Coach Cable was a fluke choice made by Al, and look what he accomplished with what he has to work with....8-8 after so many coaches we had couldnt...I agree he deserves to stay one more year and give him a chance to finish what he started to build...if we dont make the playoffs this year then he's FIRED!.... :o

When the media talks about Coach Cable's overall record as head coach they always forget he was lumbered with Russell when he came in and it was not till this year that he made the choices re QB and the development of our new young talent. The new team spirit and the passion we have in the side once more will remain and become stronger if we keep Cable, Shane Lechlar has made it clear how he and the team feels about Tom staying on and finishing the job he has started, lets hope Al feels the same, I'm sure after 7 seasons of crap 8-8 and a division sweep must feel like we have made many positive steps even if we have not made the playoffs this year.

R U people fucking insane?  2-8 outside the division.  Pulling our starting QB after 6 quarters.  A offensive line that still can't handle a line stunt.  Poor coaching challenges.  Horrible replay challenges that cost precious time outs.  Clock mismanagement.  Lack of Discipline.  The con job he gave the raider nation about DHB.  Great, two more wins than last year.  We still can't beat elite teams. The Fraudgers were down this year, the ho's were only better than the Panthers. Should have sweep the NFC West.  

Look at the sub-500 teams we lost to:

 Texans
 Titans
 Cardinals
 4.9ers
 Dolphins

Our out of division wins came against two sub-500 teams from the terrible NFC West.

Curly-Joe must go

ok football genius,  who is going to want to coach with Al's medding ways?  Please enlighten us. By the way, you obviously don't pay attention to the team because last year we only won 5 games. So by my count that is 3 extra wins. Nice math!  ???

That's nothing new. It's the RAIDER MYSTIQUE!
I don't think that the Raiders have ever made many press announcements, even in their best years.

Hearing nothing from the Raiders management doesn't necessarily mean that nothing is happening behind the scenes. Remember last off-season? Everyone was getting all upset prior to the draft and during free agency....saying that the Raiders weren't doing squat while all the other teams were making moves....then we had that great draft shortly afterward. The Raiders were obviously hard at work, they just weren't letting everyone know what they were working on.

Obviously, when you're planning to go after personnel (players, coaches, or administrators) that other teams might also want, why would you make a press announcement telling everyone what your plans are? As far as new coaches go, the Raiders aren't allowed to speak to any coaches who are in the postseason, until they are eliminated....so you know how THAT GOES. The wait begins...

We already know H. Jackson would, which is your backup plan.  There are also many offensive and defensive coordinators who would take the chance at being head coach.  Dan Snyder landed Shanarat and everyone knows Snyder is a noisy, know nothing owner.  How about Childress?

We roll with Cable and H.Jackson for next year.  If H.Jackson leaves for SF then we replace the OC. I'd love to get Harbaugh BUT if he didn't want the job last year (rumoured to be offered it) why would he consider it this year.  It's not like he's going to get a chance to pick his staff.....

I think the reason he stayed at Stanford was cause of Andrew Luck and the opportunity to work with a once in a lifetime talent (I.E the Lebron James of Football) .... Thats how i feel about Luck, A Prodigal son. I've been monitoring his career so far and the plays/throws i seen him make are ridiculously good.

If Luck leaves then Harburgh should follow to the NFL.

Hey Keith.

This is exactly the reason why Cable should go. a 3 win improvement with no Jamarcus Russell in our lineup and all the other good things that have happened this offseason.

Cable Underachieved... He's been promising playoffs the last 2 years and failed to deliver both times.

Well said Raider Greg.  WTF can we do man!  Nada.  Just sit up in here and complain.  It is up to the Raiders organization what they are going to do.  I'll tell you what, they won't let Hue go unless we get a get a big-time coach (and YOU KNOW that isn't going to happen).  So, we will wait.  My prediction is that the Raiders will go with Hue as Al won't want to lose him as he was the one who got our offense rolling this year.  To all you guys who want to keep Cable...do you remember the games that he was calling that we would MAYBE score 1 TD an entire game?  C'mon man...

John Marshall will stay too!  
Title: Re: Raiders Coaching Staff
Post by: Randy on January 04, 2011, 09:46:27 PM
How would you like Cable and Hue Jackson flip-flopping jobs? Guys like Shell, Callahan, Crenell, Turner, etc moved back down to asst. jobs after getting fired as head coach. What if the Raiders promoted Hue Jackson to head coach and offered Tom Cable a lower job to stay on with the Raiders?

After seeing how Cable called games in '09, I think I'd rather have Cable as head coach and Hue Jackson as OC, than have Cable go back to OC. I doubt that Cable would be willing to go all the way back down to offensive line coach, but that would be ok with me if he were willing to do it. What do you guys think?

If Jackson gets the head coach job, who should our OC be?

Let's play Raiders fantasy football. Al Davis just hired you as GM. What would you do? Who would you go after? Lay out your coaching staff and office staff.

Tell U what I wouldn't do.  Hire the special teams coach the Fraudgers just fired  :D

I would bring in Mike Singletary as linebacker coach and hire a new o-line coach.

What is Jerry Rice ort James Lofton doing these days?  A receiving coach

Hue Jackson at best is a lateral move. No reason to fire Cable if the replacement is a step to the the left and not forward.

Childress?!?!?! Are YOU fucking insane? He is a horrible HC. He was the Norv Turner of the NFC. He lost the locker room and bet all his chips on an aging QB that he hoped would have another career year. No thanks.

As for Shanarat. He just needs to keep a check coming to keep his year around tan going. Snyder also does not poke his nose into play calling, offense and defensive schemes. He just thinks he can buy talent and it all works out. That is his major flaw.

Once again you cry for Cables head with no real coaching choices to take over. You might as well shout into the wind. Cables is not perfect. but he is what we have. Feel free to be upset and voice your opinion. It will do little to change Al's mind.

Cable Underachieved... He's been promising playoffs the last 2 years and failed to deliver both times.

Once again you are under selling the JaBusto story. That hurt this franchise big time. This is a quarterback driven league and we had a shit at the QB position and his back ups were, at best, 30-40 % better. This is the failure of Al and JaBusto. Not Cable.

Three win improvement is nothing to scoff at when you consider a new OC, new QB, new rookie MLB, starting the year with a shitty LT and only DMAC of our two back attack, Nnamdi being out two games, and DMAC for another two games. It is not the playoffs but it does show progress. More than any other coach for the last seven years. This team has gotten better with every year under Cable. What would one more year hurt? Again, it is not as though great caliber coaches are knocking down the doors of the RAIDER front office demanding an interview.



Here is another improvement I have yet to see talked about. How about Cable changing practice times before the Jags game to try and get the player better acclimated to the time change. Now I know many of you will point out that we did not win that game. True. But no doubt we performed better than our other two trips to the east(Titans and Pittsburg). A small thing perhaps. But it could pay dividends come next year.

Jackson would keep the current stability in place.  Curly-Joe made decisions that cost the raiders games, a division and the playoffs

Ahhh, Childress took his team to the NFC championship game last year.  Made the playoffs 3 out of 5 years.  Hardly the Norv Turner of the NFC.  He is surely a better coach than Curly-Joe

The Eagles OC is also looking at HC positions.

Post by: Millernation on January 05, 2011, 12:31:09 AM
Jabusto is not the only one who contributed to his downfall.  Cable never liked him and sought ways to undercut him.  Jabusto would be told by Cable to report by a certain time then whine that Jabusto would never come in early. 

Jabusto would get nothing but negative feedback from Cable althought Cable would always give positive feedback to the other QB's.

He would blame Jabusto for missing reads the o-line was suppose to make.

Jabusto would ask Cable questions in meeting and at practice and Cable would always respond with Don't worry about it.  So give me a break about Jabusto. 

Didn't the Chefs have a knew OC and DC also?  Didn't the chefs also have injuries and rookies?  You're giving shitty excuses.  The team has gotten better because they have better talent.  They still went 2-8 outside their division loosing to teams like the DeadBirds and the 4.9ers. 

One more year would mean signing him to another contract and he will want more than 1 year 

This was conveyed to me by a raider player.  Jabusto was lazy and should have worked harder but he received little push from Cable who never wanted him as a Raider QB anyway.

Would he? It seems the players are pretty out spoken about keeping Cable. Not to mention don't you think Jackson would bring in a new style of coaching? How did the stability of the team work out when Callahan took over? Or have you forgotten?

And yet with all that the Viking sent him packing mid way through he year and no tears were shed. Norv has taken his team to the playoffs three out of the four years he coached including a Championship game. The reason he did not make it this year. Because the RAIDERS beat them twice. So I say again. The Norv Turner of the NFC. The only difference is Norv's services are being retained at the moment. Lets hope it stays that way.

He is looking to be a HC. It seems the Browns are already talking to him.

Are you seriously defending JaBusto? You ARE fucking crazy. Perhaps what Cable saw was a player too high to get the job done? Perhaps he saw a player that could not man up and do what a professional player is expected to do? Perhaps he realized JaBusto did not give a shit about football once he was paid. When your third string QB makes a point to say to the media how surprised he was to see JaBusto arrive early before practice, that says plenty for me.

Of course didn't Cable and the offensive coaches also "dumb down" the play book for JaBusto and they even cut the field in half for him as far as reads. Please. This guy was built like a brick shit house and went down with ankle tackles. JaBusto is a waste and THE biggest bust to ever be drafted. This the fault of Al and JaBusto. No one else. You want me to give it a rest because it disproves your piss poor arguments.

Yes the quiefs did get new OC and DC coaches and improved. But they also have been having solid drafts for the last few years, a GM, and a non-meddling owner. They did not get great over night. They only got better. My "shitty" excuses are nothing compared to your shitty arguments.

Yes he will get a two year extension. But when has that ever stopped an owner from firing a HC before a contract is up? Even more so when that owner is Al Davis. If you are still not sure the answer to that question. Ask Shanarat and Kiffin.

Ah yes. your "unnamed RAIDER player" that you say you know. So should Cable have held his hand when he was to drunk from the "sizurp" to attend meetings? Or should he have wiped his chin as JaBusto finished off his 12 cheeseburger? JaBusto is a grown man. If he is unable to find his balls and acted like one. Then why should Cable find them for him?

He has no player. He is only here to get validation from strangers about his supposed "football knowledge" to boost his small sad ego. The fact is this guy does not say anything that a few nights watching Inside The NFL couldn't teach you. Honestly. Has this guy ever said anything enlightening? Or anything that hasn't been said time and time again here? He walked into a well established RAIDER forum and thought he would dispense knowledge that would some how make him "king of the boards". What he found was plenty of knowledgeable RAIDER fans who had little time for his bullshit. Perhaps his wife doesn't let him talk very much at home and this is his only way to feel superior. Or perhaps he is a failed athlete trying to recapture his glory days. Let me guess Millernation. Did you once score four touchdowns in a single game?

There is no way to justify this move. Don't get me wrong, I like Jackson, but we made serious progress this season, so what happens now? What concerns me the most is our free agents to-be. If they liked Cable, they might leave just because of that. That could kill us next season.

So now what? Every two years we get a new coach? Or if we miss the playoffs we get a new coach? Oh if he punches out an assistant we will fire him a year from then? Hue Jackson has been on "Stage" all season folks.....NEWS FLASH! When have you ever seen the OC do Soooooo many interviews? NEVER! It was a matter of Hue OR Cable and Al went with the guy with the Playbook. WHY THE FUCK CAN'T WE FUNCTION LIKE A NORMAL TEAM? WHY DOES THERE ALWAYS NEED TO BE DRAMA IN THIS FUCKIN TEAM? WTF!

Lechler: "I think this is going to be a huge set back for us..."

“You’ll probably see people like Robert Gallery go on to another team, probably Michael Bush...”

“The last time I was probably this disappointed was when [Davis] traded Jon [Gruden] to Tampa.”

He said, “I think this is going to be a huge set back for us, to tell you the truth. Tom was good and how he handled the whole dealing with Al [Davis] and all that situation. He was one of the better coaches I’ve had that can handle that part of it and not let part of it bother the football team. And that’s what I enjoyed about him.”

As for Hue Jackson, “It’s kind of hard for me to judge Hue.”

“Yes I do respect him,” said Lechler. “Whether he can call plays and pull off the whole head coaching deal and deal with Al Davis on the side, I don’t know, that’s a lot on somebody’s plate.”

Lechler said he attempted to call Davis and senior executive John Herrera, but was discontented with them not picking up his call.

This is so Fucked up it's untrue, another Dumbass move my Mighty Al, and i have news for anyone wanting Gruden, Harbaugh, Cowher or any other quality head coach.... it aint gonna happen, Mighty Al won't pay top dollar for a Coach because he believes that coaching is unimportant, he thinks its all about the organisation and the players and that the Sun revolves around him!
So it looks like Hue Jackson will probably be the next Head Coach, i have my reservations about him as an OC and you know that Mighty Al is going to be calling the shots from his crypt so god only knows whats going to happen. I really hope i'm wrong but if we don't start well next season we are looking at another run of 4 or 5 win seasons again. Go Raiders!!!

Wtf does everyone think Harbaugh will be such a grand coach in the NFL anyway???  He made Stanford respectable....woohoo big fucking deal??!!  He's had Luck (who is a stud). And besides that how many other (and much better) college coaches have came out and fucking stunk up the NFL???  A damn lot....

Mark my words...if we don't land a BIGTIME coach...Nnamdi, Seymour, Bush and a shit-ton more of our team will be out the fucking door....

I think we all knew our team turning aroundwas looking to good to be true and it was just a matter of time before something like this happened. I still dont know quite what to think. I mean all season some of yall were talkin about we only sucked so bad this year because of caoching. We all know this team was better than 8-8. So maybe this was a good thing. IDK....im just trying to see the positive althought its hard right now. I would at least hope they would give his old job back on offenseive line coach. He has a personality that is needed in the locker room. Maybe they want to make Jackson head and Harbough OC, hahaha. We never know what the orginization is going to do. Jackson needs to stay OC and he knows it, that would be our benefit that away Jason doesnt have to go through another change. All we can do is cross our fingers and pray that this somehow works out in the end. Maybe hopefully some big time coaches out there see our talent and want to take a chance and runnin this team.

Does it really matter what the fans think?

Does it really matter who the team thinks they want as a head coach?

This is Big Al’s team and if anybody if going to ruin this team it’s AL.

He wants to win his way, not give the spotlight to anyone else.

He wants to show the league, his way is the only way!

If he wants Jackson, Harbaugh or Gruden, he will make the decision!

Lest not the Raider Nation Forget it!

Oh Yeah, HIRE A F-ING GM!

Bottom line it sucks!
Another year not having an idea how the team will do next season.
Or who will lead it.
Go Raiders

I'm waiting for the league to take control of this team ... we actually look like we're headed in the right direction and that's not good enough?

Is Bruce Allen and Jon coming back here? Doubt it because they would want money and we know how much Al hates giving money to someone that actually coaches. At least we had 1.5 days of dreaming about how good we could be next year. Fuck I hate this shit!!!!

Because it wouldn't be fair to the player if I outed him.  If U don't believe me, I don't give a shit and a half.  I don't know everything about football but I know a lot and won't try to hide it because it bothers others. 

Cable got the Ax.  Good start.  I knew enough that he would get dumped
Title: Re: Raiders Coaching Staff
Post by: Millernation on January 05, 2011, 04:07:32 PM
Jabusto is not the only one who contributed to his downfall.  Cable never liked him and sought ways to undercut him.  Jabusto would be told by Cable to report by a certain time then whine that Jabusto would never come in early. 

Jabusto would get nothing but negative feedback from Cable althought Cable would always give positive feedback to the other QB's.

He would blame Jabusto for missing reads the o-line was suppose to make.

Jabusto would ask Cable questions in meeting and at practice and Cable would always respond with Don't worry about it.  So give me a break about Jabusto. 

Didn't the Chefs have a knew OC and DC also?  Didn't the chefs also have injuries and rookies?  You're giving shitty excuses.  The team has gotten better because they have better talent.  They still went 2-8 outside their division loosing to teams like the DeadBirds and the 4.9ers. 

One more year would mean signing him to another contract and he will want more than 1 year 

This was conveyed to me by a raider player.  Jabusto was lazy and should have worked harder but he received little push from Cable who never wanted him as a Raider QB anyway. 

Are you seriously defending JaBusto? You ARE fucking crazy. Perhaps what Cable saw was a player too high to get the job done? Perhaps he saw a player that could not man up and do what a professional player is expected to do? Perhaps he realized JaBusto did not give a shit about football once he was paid. When your third string QB makes a point to say to the media how surprised he was to see JaBusto arrive early before practice, that says plenty for me.

Of course didn't Cable and the offensive coaches also "dumb down" the play book for JaBusto and they even cut the field in half for him as far as reads. Please. This guy was built like a brick shit house and went down with ankle tackles. JaBusto is a waste and THE biggest bust to ever be drafted. This the fault of Al and JaBusto. No one else. You want me to give it a rest because it disproves your piss poor arguments.

Yes the quiefs did get new OC and DC coaches and improved. But they also have been having solid drafts for the last few years, a GM, and a non-meddling owner. They did not get great over night. They only got better. My "shitty" excuses are nothing compared to your shitty arguments.

Yes he will get a two year extension. But when has that ever stopped an owner from firing a HC before a contract is up? Even more so when that owner is Al Davis. If you are still not sure the answer to that question. Ask Shanarat and Kiffin.

Ah yes. your "unnamed RAIDER player" that you say you know. So should Cable have held his hand when he was to drunk from the "sizurp" to attend meetings? Or should he have wiped his chin as JaBusto finished off his 12 cheeseburger? JaBusto is a grown man. If he is unable to find his balls and acted like one. Then why should Cable find them for him?

I'm not defending Jabusto numbnutz, I'm letting you know he wasn't the only dipsh!t involved in that disaster

He has no player. He is only here to get validation from strangers about his supposed "football knowledge" to boost his small sad ego. The fact is this guy does not say anything that a few nights watching Inside The NFL couldn't teach you. Honestly. Has this guy ever said anything enlightening? Or anything that hasn't been said time and time again here? He walked into a well established RAIDER forum and thought he would dispense knowledge that would some how make him "king of the boards". What he found was plenty of knowledgeable RAIDER fans who had little time for his bullshit. Perhaps his wife doesn't let him talk very much at home and this is his only way to feel superior. Or perhaps he is a failed athlete trying to recapture his glory days. Let me guess Millernation. Did you once score four touchdowns in a single game?

Since I don't watch Inside the NFL, I guess Showtime should call me and hire me on the cheap.  Thanks though for the Dr. Phil analysis.  I never scored 4 touchdowns in a single game but I came very close and had teammates who did. 

I did say at the beginning of the season that Louis Murphy is not a #1 NFL wideout.  Wasn't that enlightening because it sure turned out to be true.  I guess its cool to put your opinions on the board unless it doesn't agree with the certain members.  True, anyone posting on this board could be full of bullsh!t but could also be credible.  I guess if your opinion is unpopular by the board elitist, you are full of bullsh!t  :-\

All this talk about no longer following the Raiders, and all these players saying they might leave, I have one word for you..LEAVE!! We dont need you! I am sure a lot of you are confused and dont know what to make of it like myself, but I am sure as hell not going to leave the Raider Nation. HEll NO! I didnt agree with Al's decision at first, but after thinking about it. I agree with it, McFadden had a GREAT year, and it was not due to Cable, the plays that Jacoby made werent designed by Cable. Sure Cable is a GOOD coach, and I am sure he is great at other things, but right now we got over the hump ( of not being a losing team) and I agree with the decision to keep fighting forward. We cannot settle for 8-8.Period, we cannot be 2-8 outside the division! BUT if we dont hire Hue or Jim Harrball. THEn this wont be such a good move. GO RAIDERS!!!!

A year too late.  Curly-Joe shouldn't have been coach this season.  We had a playoff team and didn't make the playoffs.  Maybe free agents will resign with Curly-Joe gone.  Ever think of that?  Does anyone give a shit about what a PUNTER thinks.  Yes, his is a great punter (almost as good as guy but not quite) but still a punter.  

I'm sure Jason Campbell is happy with this news.  His relationship with Curly-Joe maybe one of the reasons for Curly's departure.  If Cable colored his hair black, he would be fred flintstone

Why are people flipped out?  Didn't you know this was going to happen.  He lost his job during the Miami game by starting Bruce.  By the way, Al don't video(Machete).  But he does slideshow  ;). 

Hasn't it been common knowledge that H. Jackson would be Curly-Joe's replacement if Curly as let go.  That was talked about in pre-season.  Why is anyone surprised?   

I RESPECTFULLY disagree RG that the team won't play for him.  Jason Campbell for one is delighted with the move.  So who won't play for him Routt?

The painful truth is this... Cable is just not a good HC.  Numbers matter is this league and he just wasn't getting it done.  As Raider fans, we have seen what happens when he calls a game.  It blows dude.  Grad saved his rear end last year.  Is Hue the guy?  Who knows?  There is no denying that he is responsible for making our offense explosive this year.  However, his play calling in some games year blew too.  This is Al's team and no one is going to change his mind by telling him the players "believe" in Cable.  Al never works that way.  He grabs the talent and puts them in the locker room.  He then tells his HV to go coach them.  Plan and simple.  He doesn't give a shit about "locker room dissention" and never will.

There is small part of me that dreams that the Raiders will announce the hiring of Jon Gruden this week or the next.  There is still hope!

Also, to those who say they won't be Raider fans if so-and-so is the Coach or if so-and-so free agent bounces to another team...GOOD RIDDANCE.  That's exactly why I won't buy Raider jerseys for current players.  It's a business. Buy up those jerseys of our RAIDER LEGENDS...they never pissed and moaned like the current NFL crybabies anyway.

Stay strong Nation, we have been through worse.

I think we all knew that Huey would take over as HC after this year unless Cable got them into the playoffs. He was brought in as insurance for this year ... and would have probably been HC if it wasn't for Cable's contract.

I'm just worried about what's going to happen with the players come free agency? Will Bush leave ... can McFadden put together 1 season of not being hurt? Will we lose our LG? Will Shane go elsewhere ... especially after speaking out to the media?

I thought that after the last game that we would retain Cable. But with Greg talking about Huey stabbing Cable in the back ... do you think he didn't get the team ready for Pittsburgh and Miami on purpose?

But Miller, you have to at least agree that...if it isn't someone that can, as Lechler said, "handle the whole Al situation" it will be a disaster again.  That's why I say surely he has some big-name coach that can do it.  I'm afraid if it's Jackson it will be bad...another fucking puppet :(  I do agree that there are peeps that need to go...front office all the way down.  But if he fired Cable...for Jackson...yeesh.

Mr. Miller, site your unnamed raider player.......you always act like you know everything about football......What team have you coached...........I think you like to talk just to get a rise out of people......if you cant name the player then dont make the statements.....

He has no player. He is only here to get validation from strangers about his supposed "football knowledge" to boost his small sad ego. The fact is this guy does not say anything that a few nights watching Inside The NFL couldn't teach you. Honestly. Has this guy ever said anything enlightening? Or anything that hasn't been said time and time again here? He walked into a well established RAIDER forum and thought he would dispense knowledge that would some how make him "king of the boards". What he found was plenty of knowledgeable RAIDER fans who had little time for his bullshit. Perhaps his wife doesn't let him talk very much at home and this is his only way to feel superior. Or perhaps he is a failed athlete trying to recapture his glory days. Let me guess Millernation. Did you once score four touchdowns in a single game?

Since I don't watch Inside the NFL, I guess Showtime should call me and hire me on the cheap.  Thanks though for the Dr. Phil analysis.  I never scored 4 touchdowns in a single game but I came very close and had teammates who did.  

I did say at the beginning of the season that Louis Murphy is not a #1 NFL wideout.  Wasn't that enlightening because it sure turned out to be true.  I guess its cool to put your opinions on the board unless it doesn't agree with the certain members.  True, anyone posting on this board could be full of bullsh!t but could also be credible.  I guess if your opinion is unpopular by the board elitist, you are full of bullsh!t  :-\

Ok....Were all fliped the fuck out here......Classic Al Davis....Big move...Perhaps he will even come out with a video about how he came about it....No matter.....Its Al's team and HE will decide who will be the new "pupet" in this Coaching nightmare....No GM is why we have this mess......I will be doing a show on Thursday and tell you guys what I think but the REAL truth (Millernation) is Hue Jackson STABED Cable in the back  and twisetd the blade.....The team will NOT play for him....NOPE they will be jumping ship for greener pastures......He is a snake in the grass and the team knows it....No hiding it.....We WILL not have as good a season next  year for this reason alone.....Fucking unreal!
                 Hey Greg,
I rode a greyhound bus 34 hours-roundtrip and i am on cloud 9 that the Raiders won at arrowhead.Then i heard late last night on JT the Brick's show that cable was fired. I still am pissed off....We finally go 8-8 and the fans have HOPE after 8 SHITTY seasons and then we get kicked in the balls.I am SO Pissed at AD right now....I'm probably NOT going to see the Raiders in oakland next year-i'd rather give the HUNT family my money or another team we go to....crazy uncle AL really knows how to FUCK things up for us Diehard fans....we DESERVE Better than the Scraps AD is throwing us!!!

I don't see Al Davis hiring anyone other than Hue Jackson for head coach. The 49ers ask for permission to interview Jackson, and within hours Cable is notified that they won't extend his contract. Why else would they act so fast unless it was because they didn't want to lose Jackson?

Hue Jackson wants to be a head coach, and if another team makes him the offer and the Raiders don't, he wouldn't stick around to be offensive coordinator. As soon as I heard Hue Jackson's first speech at the Raiders podium in front of the media, it became obvious to me that Al brought him in as a successor to Cable. It was just a matter of time. This was probably Al's plan all along. I don't think Cable ever had a chance to coach here beyond this point. Al had a year to look at Jackson and make sure that he would make a good head coach.

I'll bet that Al has already spoken with Jackson and made him the offer. They'll just hold off on the official press conference until whatever day Al decides is the right time to make the announcement. On the other hand, who was it....Kiffin....or Gruden....who said that he doesn't remember Al ever actually offering him the job verbally? He never actually put it in words. I think it was Gruden.

Has anyone heard if there is a meeting time scheduled for Jackson to meet with the 49ers? I'm wondering if that is still in the works. What if Hue wants to hear more than one offer? He's sitting in a position of power now. I wonder if he'll use any leverage to get the best contract he can moneywise? He might tell Al he wants to hear other offers, and force Al to make him a sweet offer in order to stay. What do you guys think?

Coaches come in bowing to Al and doing his bidding.  After awhile they feel their oats and do what they think is best instead of what Al thinks is best.  When you do that and don't win, you are fucked.  Curly-Joe's issues with Jason Campbell doomed him when the raiders missed the playoffs.  Al wanted Campbell, Curly-Joe wanted Bruce.  After the miami fiasco, Curly-Joe was fucked. 

Don't get into a power struggle with Davis.  U will lose.  Al wants U to do it his way and win.  Jackson didn't throw the miami game.  Curly-Joe made the decision to start bruce and that doomed him

Wtf does everyone think Harbaugh will be such a grand coach in the NFL anyway???  He made Stanford respectable....woohoo big fucking deal??!!  He's had Luck (who is a stud).

I read from some respected NFL analysis that a person asked the same question you pondered Rodney and the NFL analysis (i think it was Scheft.. LOL RESPECTED) basically they touched on the subject that Andrew Luck was an average prospect coming out of College... Had he been a high school superstar then he probably wouldn't have gone to Stanford but to a powerhouse program like Texas, USC etc.

Harbaugh will be a great molder of our quarterback plans for years to come.

I totally feel the same way about the position punter.

I admit that Lechler is one of the greatest of all time, however I believe that there's a general consciencious around the league that Punters are 2nd class citizens.

If Seymour or Asomugha echoed similar thoughts about Cable then we would be in trouble.

I heard on the radio today that Harbaugh was offered 5.5 million a year to coach college, and that he's asking a min. of 7 mil/year to coach in the pros. You think Al will be willing to pay a coach $7,000,000 a year when he's never paid more than $2,000,000?

Al only pays a certain amount for a coach, But considering how Harbaugh used to grace our halls... perhaps he's willing to throw the money his way.

R U people fucking insane?  2-8 outside the division.  Pulling our starting QB after 6 quarters...

Curly-Joe must go

That was Hue Jackson's idea to pull Campbell after 6 quarters, not Cable's. Naturally Cable had to make the final decision, but it was Hue Jackson's recommendation. He approached Cable with it. Cable just approved and pulled the trigger on it. From what I've read.


Cable and Jackson both talked about it in this video...the Game Two (Rams) postgame press conference:

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Jason Campbell (FSY) might have done enough to win back the starting quarterback job for the Oakland Raiders even after Bruce Gradkowski (FSY) recovers from a separated shoulder.
Just last week coach Tom Cable said the quarterback situation was "clear cut" and Gradkowski would be the starter when he was healthy. But Cable backtracked Monday and said he might stick with Jason Campbell, who just led Oakland to its first three-game winning streak since 2002 following a 23-20 overtime win over Kansas City.

Perhaps part of the problem has been Cable's wavering on the Raiders' starting quarterback. After starting the season with Jason Campbell at the helm, Cable switched to Bruce Gradkowski when Campbell struggled. After Gradkowski separated his shoulder, Cable turned back to Campbell but insisted Gradkowski was still the starter. While Campbell was under center during the Raiders' three-game midseason win streak, Cable fluctuated between both quarterbacks throughout the second half of the year until Gradkowski reinjured his shoulder and was placed on injured reserve.

Yahoo! Sports reported on Dec. 12 that Cable was upset when Hue Jackson was hired as the Raiders' offensive coordinator and that Jackson's associates are pushing him to find another job.

Jackson denied there was a rift when asked about the story days later.

"I don't know where all that stuff comes from," Jackson said. "We all here have a pretty good working relationship. I have known Tom here longer than probably anybody that's on this staff, other than Mike Waufle because I worked with those guys before. I was a little surprised by it. There's no truth to it."

Randy, I think the Miami game was the killer.  Cable showed he had more confidence in Bruce instead of Jason.  Like Rg said, Jackson stepped into and took credit (backstab?) in the ram game.  But it was Cable who made the ultimate decision that Bruce was the starter.  But I did say back in the pre-season Cable wasn't the HC material

Here's the plan. It's already been reported that Al is interested in Josh McDaniels, and Al is still upset about letting Randy Moss and JaMarcus Russell go. So, Al hires McDaniels as head coach, picks up Moss after Tennessee releases him, and resigns Russell.

See? Things aren't so bad right now that they couldn't get infinitely worse.

McDaniels never had a great defense this year in Denver with key players suffering injuries.

But i know your being sarcastic about McDaniels. But he's only a fallback intriguing option if Hue Jackson goes to San Francisco or somewhere else.

Bad move any way you slice it. If Jackson is kept perhaps it salvages something.

As far a Lechler being a "second class citizen" or someone "rarely gets hit". What kind of shit is that? You don't think he speaks for the team? Then why did have they voted him a captain so many times? Obviously the team respects him. But some here(millernation, perhaps it is his mystery Raider he says he knows) think they know better about the pulse of the team than the guy who is on it. Really? Only time will tell. But I will take the word of the guy on the team over fans who are not privy to locker room talk.

To think that Cables leaving will not be a factor in his resigning is folly.


In the end I hope I am proved wrong. I hope who ever takes over this team takes not only to the playoffs but to our fourth Super Bowl trophy. And believe me I will stand up and proudly say I was wrong. But as history has show with this organization in the last seven years. I don't think I will have to much to worry about.


I will add this though.

How can it be Cable's fault when...

1. Its Al's offensive philosophy
2. Its Al's defensive philosophy
3. Al selected Cable's entire coaching staff
4. Al controls all the draft picks
5. Al controls the roster
6. Al controls the free agent signings
7. Al controls who the starting QB is

Do I need to keep going?

Cable's first year without Jabusto and we hang 59 points on Denver, sweep the AFC West, end the San Diego losing streak, Mcfadden sheds the bust label, and demoralize the Queefs as they head into the playoffs. DAMN!!! Imagine what could have been next year with the momentum and consistency.

sarcastic? me? no way. mcdaniels as head coach. and kiffin as offensive coordinator. russell at qb. and moss at tight end. shell could coach the offensive line. and tom walsh could run the hotel in napa during training camp. i guarantee it would be like no team you've ever seen before. or it would be like every team we've had since 2002, except last year's. but we fired that coach.

like i said last season, enjoy each and every win like it's your last, because it just might be. it felt good sweeping the division, yelling at charger fans that their team sucks, humiliating the broncos, etc. remember those feelings, because this team has only had 3 winning seasons since returning to oakland 16 years ago. 3 out of 16 is really, really bad.

He was also good with bringing in Rob Ryan as coach  :o.  The interview was also before this season when the raiders didn't win a winnable division.  Nnamdi also said Cable returning would held JaBusto.  It didn't. Nnamdi is also not T.O. who will speak his mind.  He will always say the right thing.  Good he didn't dump on Cable since Cable came back. Did the offense get better because of Cable or Jackson? 

Regarding Al Davis.  All his coaches have had to live with that the winners and the losers.  When U take that job, you go in knowing you have to be successful under Al's rules.  How it it Cable's fault.  I've documented that multiple times.  But this question is mute, Cable is gone.

He said that the 49ers opening offer was $5 million (a newspaper article today said it was 4.5 mil)....and he said, "why would Harbaugh accept 5 mil when Pete Carroll is getting 6 or 7 mil in Seattle...and Harbaugh is such a hot commodity now?

He was talking about how the Yorks basically promised it's fanbase that they would go after Harbaugh and that money would be no object. And now money is becoming an object.  He said that the 49ers must have really mis-judged the market, or they are just stupid. He thinks that the 49ers are going to end up losing out to the Dolphins, and end up looking foolish.

From what he said, apparently the Dolphins sent some people to San Francisco to talk to Harbaugh here. He said that the Dolphins owner is basically saying (about the Yorks) "oh....you wanna see a billionaire....I'll show you a billionaire!" He went on to say that if the Dolphins owner ended up paying Harbaugh $8 million a year, when you compare that to his total worth....the $8 million is .2 % (1/500th) of his worth ($4 Billion total worth)....which when you compare it to how much money the AVERAGE person in the US is worth....it would be like the average person paying about 800 dollars per year for Harbaugh (that makes the average person worth $400,000).

Don't worry. Al will replace any player that we lose with a BETTER player...via the draft and free agency. Right?

I know this might not be the popular thing to say, but a combination of Hue as HC and Josh McDaniels as OC might not be a bad idea. Both are great offensive minds, and I bet they could really develop our offense even more. How I actually picture this going down, is Hue getting the HC position AND keeping his play-calling abilities.

U don't let players dictate who your HC is.  This is not the NBE.  They all know they play for Al.  Will Shane be benched like Marcus Allen?  You don't know what is going to happen to the free agents until the CBA is completed.  If it's not financially positive for them to move after the new CBA they will resign with the raiders.

He was also good with bringing in Rob Ryan as coach  :o.  The interview was also before this season when the raiders didn't win a winnable division.  Nnamdi also said Cable returning would held JaBusto.  It didn't. Nnamdi is also not T.O. who will speak his mind.  He will always say the right thing.  Good he didn't dump on Cable since Cable came back. Did the offense get better because of Cable or Jackson? 

So he liked Ryan. I didn't say he was perfect. I said he supported Cable and the videos proved that. Your right it was before this season. But it was after a season in which we went 5-11. But I am supposed to think with the improvement of this year his feeling would change? Ok. Once again. No one could help JaBusto. JaBusto was unwilling to help himself. Cable is the coach, not a baby sitter. One player failed under him, 51 others did not. Did it get better under Jackson or Cable? I guess we will find out next year won't we? I never said Cable was great at calling offensive plays. Al apparently felt the same way, hence why he hired Jackson. Bt that is still no reason to fire Cable. Del Rio does not call defensive plays any more for the Jags. But is still the HC.

Quote
Regarding Al Davis.  All his coaches have had to live with that the winners and the losers.  When U take that job, you go in knowing you have to be successful under Al's rules.  How it it Cable's fault.  I've documented that multiple times.  But this question is mute, Cable is gone.

So then the fact is no coach under the current Al Davis system will ever do well. So why then fire Cable? If I handed you a 5 cards I picked out of a deck and told you to play a hand of poker with them and you lost. Who's fault is that? Yours or mine? Cable did know what he was getting into. But unlike past coaches(Kiffin in particular) he was able to make it work and improve with every year. Sorry those results where not fast enough for you. But that is the nature of the beast. You have documented nothing. You simply have given your opinion. One you are entitled to no matter how wrong.

Quote
By the way, all this worry about free agent signings are bogus.  Nothing will happen until there is a new CBA

Right. because who the head coach is never plays a part in free agency. At some point the CBA will be signed and football will resume. But that will not change how players feel or how they view Oakland as a possible place to play.

Proving that you care more about being right and every one knowing about it then anything having to do with the RAIDERS. As I pointed out before.

It fail on Cable? What fail on Cable? Is he alright? Or do you mean Cable failed? He failed because he was handed a loaded deck. This year even more so when Al hired his replacement as the OC at the beginning of the year. had Cable played his own hand and failed that would be a different story. But with what he was given. I and many others think he did a pretty darn good job with it. Let's see if his replacement can do better. I certainly hope so. But history is on my side.

I just can't agree with you raidersully on Cable doing a 'pretty good darn' job. It was more like a borderline pass job.

Too only win 3 more games after getting rid of Russell and having one of the best draft classes in years is him underachieving.

Too bring Cable back next season would of been like Jerry Jones bringing back Wade Phillips this season. Wade was always seen as a players coach, but he lost games cause of penalties and team discipline.

Also i'm pretty sure Cable has never had a winning record at any HC gigs. I want to get a young up and comer (HUE) who's ceiling is the Superbowl and not some mediocre 8-8 season.
Title: Re: Raiders Coaching Staff
Post by: RaiderWildeStyle on January 07, 2011, 01:24:35 AM
Btw does anyone think Cable will land on his feet and coach as a HC again at the pro level?

I certainly do. The overall consciencious by the media is Cable shouldn't of been let go. I'm from the firm belief that one man's trash is another man's treasure. Al wants a Superbowl and i think Al believes that Cable won't be able to deliver that.

I could certainly see him getting a gig this upcoming season on a team that's cautious about the pending lockout and not wanting to spend a lot of money deciding to go the basic cable avenue.

If Cable doesn't get a HC job this year. Then i expect him to get paid very very handsomely by Paul Allen and go fix the woes which is the Seattle running game.

My opinion, for what it's worth;

Cable - decent guy, decent coach, but not a Head Coach - Oscar, no I don't think he'll get ANY offers as HC in the NFL. My guess he'll go back to being an OL coach and do pretty well.

Jackson - enthused the offense, challenged the players, took them out of their comfort zone and made a huge improvement where many others have failed.

My preference - Jackson stays as OC and a respected HC is brought in to continue the improvement and start winning the division we should have taken this year. (2-8 non-division is inexcusable with the schedule we had)

My prediction - Jackson gets the HC job, the offense goes backward and the rest of the team follows.

The pain starts anew............

Oh yeah - a belated Happy New Year   :-\

Yes they got rid of JaBusto, something you seem to down play for some reason. Getting rid of him was HUGE! This years draft class was great no doubt. But how have they been previous to that? Not to mention have the players drafted this year not made a huge impact on this team this year? Certainly McClain and Veldheer. Veldheer by the way some one Cable believed would be a better LT than Henderson turns out that was right as he may be the LT we have been screaming for for the last 5 drafts while instead getting DHB and Huff. But even with the great impact they have had, they are after all rookies. Ones that came pretty far in one year but still can improve. Was that Jackson's doing? So imagine what one more year could bring.

Wade Phillips was given three and half year. But had ten times the amount of talent overall, a QB in place, and better overall drafting(the same things that helped the Quiefs get better also). Granted Cable was not perfect, and yes penalties hurt us(though lots of penalties is a RAIDER staple though the Bears are the leaders). But this is still no excuse to fire him unless you have a great HC waiting, and we both know that is not the case.

Cable has never had a winning season as a HC. Hue on the other hand has never been a HC. So I guess time will tell.

Thats what I think.....Hue has NEVER been on the Al Davis hot seat for one and he will be getting a steady ration of it every day without Cable there to take the hits.....Hue has NO clue as to what is about to happen....Look, Al saves money by giving Hue the "meager" 2.5 mil. for a year and not having to hire a OC saves at least 700K.....Al is looking for a lockout as he has setup his free agents for it.......Look who is due.....EVERYONE! This guy is banking on it and will keep his money close until the very end......This fuckin guy KILLS this team....Just when you think we are out of the hole......BOOYAH...Back in the hole suckers.......Our record will suffer next season just because Hue will be like a one leg man in an ass kicking contest..... :-\

Well the way i look at it with Chucky = $7 Million a season or Harburgh = $8 Million a season.

How can you justify the 2 contracts of Lechler and Janokowski @ 4million a piece when each player is only on the field at the most 12.5% of the time.

*12.5% is formulated by 100% divided by 8 (4downs on Offense + 4 Downs on Defense)

So to spend that 8 Million on 2 positions when we could spend 8 million a year on a ELITE coach who would have a way more beneficial affect on 53 other men. The logic baffles me.

<MY COMMENTS ABOVE in no way endorse that Lechler and Janikowski ain't assets to this team.. they're the best at there positions, I'm just annoyed that when push comes to shove Al Davis wants to spend 8 million on salsa dip, But isn't willing to spend 8 million on corn chips)

Kickers on the field 12.5% of the time...."at most"? Do we always play a minimum of 4 plays offense and 4 plays defense per each kick?
The way I figure it, theoretically, Jano could be on the field 66% of the time.

Play #1:  Opponent kicks to Raiders, Jacoby Ford runs back for a TD.

Play #2:  Jano kicks extra point

Play #3: Jano kicks off to opponent

Repeat

Jano on field for 2 out of 3 plays. So 12.5% can't be "at most".

That's right! I forgot that every play Jano is on the field, Lechler is there too.

Actually, here's a better scenario:

Play #1: Opponent kicks to Raiders, Jacoby Ford Runs for TD

Play #2: Jano kicks extra point

Play #3: Jano kicks off to opponent

Play #4: Kick returner fumbles ball, Raiders run in for TD

Play #5: Jano kicks extra point

Play #6: Jano kicks off to opponent

Repeat 4-6 for rest of game


Jano and Lechler both on field 66% of time!

p.s.

When Ford ran that last kickoff back for a TD, it took about 12 seconds off the clock. A kickoff, returner fumble, and TD would probably take off about the same. So....I figure that if my above scenario actually played out for the whole game, the Raiders would score 300 TDs, and the final score would be:

Raiders 2100
Opponent 0

Formulate that!

In a nutshell:

The 49ers are back in the mix. So is Stanford. The Denver Broncos are in the Harbaugh running, too.

But the Miami Dolphins, a purported lock to land Harbaugh in the morning, were completely out of the sweepstakes by nightfall. A separate source said the reports of an $8 million offer from the Dolphins are not "anywhere close" to being accurate.

The NFL Network reported that Stanford's financial proposal, with bonuses, eclipsed the 49ers' offer. The 49ers were prepared to offer a package that would be worth up to $6 million, including incentives.

John Elway, recently appointed to the Denver Broncos front office, is trying to arrange to interview Harbaugh.

YOU CANT PLAY MADDEN, XBOX ON THE SIDELINES.....LMAO!

Working on the 360 this weekend.   Fellow worker just game me his red ringing 360 so I could salvage the DVd drive.  I haven't bought that POS since Madden 1998 for the saturn.  Live and die with the NFL 2k series.  Tiburon is the laziest developer in america.  They have become the new 989.  You like Cable and the Madden series.  That clears up a lot for me  8)

I will take the job as long Al doesn't pay me minimum wage   :P

Chilly would be a better HC than Cable for one.

well that would be going from one extreme to another.  One team wanted Childress to leave wheras our players wanted Cable to stay.  Childress sucks and he choked last year in the championship game......

Yeah.. Childress can't choke when Favre threw interception in OT.

In saying that Childress is a bad idea for this organization... Having 53 men who play like Outlaws.. You need a coach who is a "players coach" & not a "authoritarian"

Cable is a 'players coach' but in my opinion he can only take us so far.

Jesus. I hope you do know something about football. Because you can't spell for shit.

How did Childress choke? By not being able to repeat what happened before with what was essentially the same team. He may not have cost them the NFC Championship game. But he did not help either. When the team loses it fall at the feet of the HC right? I mean that is what you are saying about Cable is it not?

As I pointed out before when it comes to Childress. He took his team to the playoffs 3 out of the 5 years he coached. Norv has taken the chargless 3 out for the 4 years he has coached there. Would you say Norv is a great HC? Would Norv also be a great replacement for Cable? I think not. Also. Tell me the teams that are beating down his door. I mean even Wade Phillips has a new job. Meanwhile Childress is sitting at home. Childress, like Norv, was given a great team and did little with it. He is a horrible coach and is not coming to Oakland. Any other choices?


Oh and Callahan is a coach in the NFL. He is the assistant coach of the NY Jets. Has since 2008. Cable will have no problem finding a new coaching job.

I've been pondering the Cable firing & have justified in my head why it's also a good idea.

W1- Titans finished (6-10)
W3- Arizona finished (5-11)
W4- Houston finished (5-11)
W6- San Francisco finished (6-10)
W11- Pittsburgh finished (12-4)
W12- Miami finished (7-9)
W14- Jacksonville finished (8-8)
W16- Indianapolis finished (10-6)

Out of our 8 losses this season. only 2 teams had better records then us! (PIT & IND)... To me that's equivalent to leaving 6 potential wins on the table.

You can say whatever you want about Cable.......In my mind if all the free-agents stay with us and we get some good ones to join us from other teams then that is fine.  But if the ones we need to keep leave because of this decision then I say it was really stupid.  I hope I am wrong!

Here are our wins.

Chiefs twice - 10-6 (playoffs)
Chargers twice - 9-7
Broncos twice 4-12
Rams - 7-9
Seattle - 7-9 (playoffs)

Out of our eight wins two have better records(of course we also beat them not once, but twice). And like the teams we lost too. Two of these teams are in the playoffs with the Seacocks moving on to the next round(while the Colts are going home). See I can twist our schedule to my side also.

You can focus on the negative if it puts your mind at ease with the Cable decision. I prefer to look at the overall picture when making my mind.

If he doesn't get hired as a head coach somewhere. If he did become the Raiders' defensive coordinator, Al would have another guy ready to jump into the head coach position if Hue Jackson doesn't pan out for whatever reason.

I never said Childress was a great coach, just a better option than Curly-Joe.  RSully, you seem to take the opposite persons point to the extreme to make your point and your conclusions as fact.  not very convincing

"This is strictly speculation, but keep the name Rob Ryan in mind. His status is tenuous at best in Cleveland with Eric Mangini out, he’s interviewed for the job before with Davis and made sure not to burn any bridges when he left after his contract expired.

Although Ryan’s defenses weren’t particularly successful, players on both sides of the ball loved him. And while that may not be a big criteria for Davis, it could go a long way toward making a lot of players who were upset over Cable’s departure feel better about a change.

Like Nnamdi Asomugha, for instance."

Let me play devil's advocate... Players on both sides of the ball loved him.  Considering the number of free agents, could Rob be the one coach that players will buy into? He's a straight shooter and no BS type of guy.  If this weighted heavily in Nnamdi returning? Sure players will play for whatever coach if you have to (under contract) but many of ours have a choice....would Rob returning at some capacity weigh in favour of returning?
If you listen to Warren Sapp (HELLRaiders's favorite haha) Rob would install a game plan which the players were excited about to only have Al Davis scrap it the day before the game.  Is it Rob's D or Al Davis's D that is garbage?

Cable commented publicly that once the season was underway, he made all the decisions regarding which players he would start, the gameplans, etc. He made that comment in response to people stating that they believed Al Davis made a lot of these decisions. That Davis would mandate to the coach that certain players be played (during the season), or that the defense would be run a certain way. Even beliefs that Al would call down to the field during the game to request changes. Cable said that wasn't true. That he didn't speak regularly with Al during the season, and that these decisions were his to make once the season began. I think Kiffin said the same thing when he was coach.

Maybe you'll think I'm naive, but I believe that. In Kiffin's case, we know that Al sent Kiffin letters warning him that he was doing things that were inappropriate in the eyes of Al. But other than that, Al didn't meet with Kiffin face to face during the season or tell him how to run the team. He basically let Kiffin take enough rope to hang himself (with cause).

I tend to think that Al let Cable do what he saw fit during the season. Al picked most of Cable's staff before he promoted Cable to head coach, yeah, but once the pieces were in place I think he sat back and just watched to see what Cable could do. Didn't Al make the statement, "you have to let coaches coach"? Or am I thinking of someone else?

Remember the week going into the Dolphins game in late November? The week started with Cable saying that Gradkowski would start, then a couple days later he switched and said Jason Campbell would start, that there was no QB issue, then at game time Sunday they put Gradkowski in. If Al were calling the shots, you know Campbell would have been in there. It did seem a little weird how Cable would flip flop between the to QB's, almost from day to day....especially that week prior to the Dolphins game. Maybe he was trying to make it hard for our upcoming opponent? So they wouldn't know which QB we were going to start and they'd have to prepare for both? Who knows?

Maybe some day there will be one or more of those "tell all" books about Al Davis and what went on behind closed doors.

"The memoirs of John Herrera"....a potential best seller!

I'm sure you guys can come up with some good sub-titles for the book.  ;)

Just to back up some of the points made previous:

Rob Ryan is pure speculation and surely we will not be bringing that fat useless fuck back so we can gift away points and never get turnovers again!

Hue Jackson is the coach - this appears to be clear and it will be announced once all the coaching staff is set in place.

I am disappointed with the Cable decision as i think he did have the players playing with heart but i will reserve judgement until the new coach is set in place and we get our valuable free agents signed up again.

Stay strong nation!  another testing off-season ahead, lol.

Didn't I say HC job?  Callahan will never get another and neither will Curly-Joe.
I am not sure what you said. In fact I am not sure you know what you were saying.

"Cable will never gate another NFL coaching give just like Calahan and many other 1st time HC's for the raiders."

I mean did you hit your head on the keyboard while typing this? Or did my proving you wrong all the time gut you so upset you didn't bother to read what you typed?

Quote
As far as spelling, I don't see you mentioning Raider Greg's spelling.  It's a fucking message board.  Who gives a shit about spelling.
Well if you are wanting to engage in a debate on the internet, then I think spelling is very important. That way the other person know what you are talking about. That is after all how conversation work. But since this paints you in a bad light I see why you would not give a shit.

As for Raider Greg. He did not introduce himself to this forum as douche nozzle know it all who thinks his shit don't stink. So no reason to point out his flaws. But since it upsets you so much. I find it worth it.

Quote
You saying Childress is a horrible coach doesn't make it a fact.  Just one slapnutz opinion.
You saying he is good coach does not make it fact either. Nor that you think he is better than Cable or Norv. See it goes both ways. The difference is, I know my opinion is just that, opinion. You think what you say is gospel, and it is not.

Quote
I never said Childress was a great coach, just a better option than Curly-Joe.  RSully, you seem to take the opposite persons point to the extreme to make your point and your conclusions as fact.  not very convincing
I never said Childress was a great coach either. Nor did I say, you said he was a great coach. What I did say was this.

"Childress?!?!?! Are YOU fucking insane? He is a horrible HC. He was the Norv Turner of the NFC. He lost the locker room and bet all his chips on an aging QB that he hoped would have another career year. No thanks."

Show me to what extreme I took this too? Fact is Millernation. I crush your arguments and now you are crying about it. You have been playing the victim role the moment some one took umbrage with your opinions. So no surprise that it should continue.

When did players loving a coach become the best thing?  Players didn't love
Tom Landry
Chuck Knoll
Bill Cowher
Bill Parcells
Bill Belechik
Mike Ditka

You are right(for once) many players disliked these coaches. But to a man they all respected them and played hard for them. That is what the RAiDERS were doing for Cable and why this team had the turn around it did. I did not see anything about the players saying they 'loved' Cable. Just that they respected him and were willing to play hard for him. It is not everything. But it is more than Norv, Shell, and Kiffin got out of them.

Once again you are so blinded by your own ego that you miss what people are saying about Cable. So I will say it again, and read it slow so you can understand it this time.

Cable is not the best coach. But he is the best coach for the RAIDERS at the moment.

Now this may change. But the last seven years of history are on my side to show that while better options are out there. They are not coming any where near Oakland.

Wow. You said Murphy was not a NFL number one WR. Amazing that you knew that. Problem is so did everyone else. Again your ego got in the way of your ability to understand what others were saying. Murphy is not a NFL number one WR. He is the RAIDERS number one WR though. This is what people were saying.

Where was it that anyone here said that our WR corps were top notch? In fact I have read(long before you showed up) fans on this site saying that the WR position was in need of an upgrade. So once again you bring nothing new to the forum.

Cable being fired. Again I am amazed at your powers of deduction. How ever did you speculate that he would be fired? It could not have come from the many reports in week 16 and 17 saying that he would be is it? Or was it from the many reports last year that were saying the same thing? Or was it the carousel of coaches the RAIDERS have gone through in the last seven years? Either way, the 'prediction' was not yours. You merely regurgitated what you read and heard from others. Like all of the other things you post here.


But as you said. "To HELL with the facts miller, you are the shiznit."

Al's recent track record shows that he "truly" doesnt know what the fuck he's doing when it comes to making coaching decisions...the entire league knows this.  The only coaches that will come here are life long Raider fans or are bottom dwelling scabs.

How am I the hater exactly? Because I see through your bullshit and don't feed your ego? You are free to express your opinion as am I. I have no problem with the things you say from a discussion stand point. What I dislike is your feeling that what you say is gospel and if others disagree they are below you for it. As if your knowledge is some how better than others when it comes to the goings on in Oakland or in football in general. Fact is you come here for validation for your opinions because you need your ego fed. But when that fails you play the victim role as if all that has been said to you from the beginning of your time here is some how unfound.

Reality is when others were tearing you a new one I offered an olive branch to show you why they may feel this way about you. As seen here.

I don't tell others they are wrong. I simply counter their argument with mine. Welcome to debating. I have no illusions of changing minds here. I just enjoy a place where I can speak my mind about the comings and goings of the Oakland Raiders. Nothing more. I harbor no hard feelings.

You don't care about me nor do you obsess with proving me wrong. Yet you continue to debate with me and reply to all that I say. Seems contradictory to me.

Really Al Davis knows? Like he knew JaBusto would be a great NFL QB? Like he knew DHB was a number one pick? While Al's legacy proves he knows much about football. Recent history has proven his knowledge is lacking. Really even Al does not know, as he is unable to tell the future. Fact is, it is his opinion that Cable was no longer needed. An opinion I and other RAIDER fans must live with. But not one I have to keep quiet about.

Limp-dick? Childish name calling? Grasping at straws I see. You continue to sink lower and lower.

No doubt. No matter who coaches the RAIDERS I will root for them and root for success for the coach. As stated before. I hope what ever coach takes over proves me wrong in how I think the team will perform under him.

As for my 'bullshit and logic'. It means plenty. It is a way to debate the Cable firing. Which is what this forum is for. Will it change the outcome. No. But that does not mean we should never speak of it. You said Cable should be fired before the season? Congrats. As if you were the lone voice. Again you can play the victim role all you like. Every one sees through it.

Or course your not crying about Cable. You were proved right when you speculated his demise. Proving once again you care more about being right then anything else.

Yeah, when I saw that point spread (wasn't it Saints favored by 11?) I thought to myself that it would probably be a good bet to take the Seahawks plus the 11. I based this on my experience in Qwest when the Raiders played there on Monday night in 2006. It was SO noisy with crowd noise....I remember wondering how ANY visiting team could win there. You can't appreciate how loud it really is from TV clips. The Raiders had so many false starts, looked confused, etc. Yeah, the '06 Raiders weren't quite the team that the defending Superbowl Saints were this year, but still.....that stadium was so noisy....it was pretty impressive. Once you give the Seahawks any sort of momentum, the fans get even louder and things can go bad in a hurry.

This was the Raiders best play of the game, by Tyler Brayton. Remember this?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmX_1rJrOOc

Here's a longer clip from that game:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cylcVAZqIEo

By the way, I'll put the link below for the videocast we did for that game up in Seattle. A videocast that was special because Raider Greg wasn't the host of the video. Greg couldn't make the trip, so one of our fellow firefighters that Greg and I work with, Tyre Mills....who flew to Seattle with me for the game....took over the microphone and did a good job. Also Crusader Raider Keith Smith and Dave Chapman...along with Keith's brother if I remember right (a Packers fan)....and Dave's brother Richard, made the trip to Seattle and are on the video. Check it out!

I still remember the beat down the raiders took against the Bills the year Bo Jackson got hurt 51-3 in the snow.  The cold has a way of slowing west coast teams down in the playoffs.  Saints in Chicago a few years ago.  Colts in New England.  The ball is like a brick, bones feel brittle and west coast teams lose their on field aggression

Marshall is still on board...I think.  But the speculation was Rob Ryan for head coach.

Thanks guys...that article only mentions it in passing like it happened a week ago.

"The Raiders have already let go of John Marshall, who was the team's defensive coordinator last season. Ryan was with the Raiders from 2004 to 2008."

When it apparently hasn't happened at all. Yet.

Call me crazy but I'm not opposed to Rob being the next HC.

1) He has a good working relationship with the boss (not an easy task). He was fired by "Lance" and re hired by the boss..lol
2) Players at the time (both sides of the ball) lobbied for him to get the HC.
3) See 1 and 2 because I've just run out of reasons....maybe I am crazy.

I don't think you're crazy.. I agree. I think he played the cards he was dealt with when he was here. example?? Look how much better were looking w/o JBust. Sometime you gotta just play the cards your dealt. I can't remember a time when he was playing that i wasn't disappointed. Does that mean the coaches sucked? no

Its not much of a shock that he didnt want to pay Cable 5 million bucks. Al's notorious for not wanting to pay his coaches big bucks.  As long as the NFL has the revenue sharing program, every team is capable of spending big bucks.  Thats how the Lions are able to operate even though they've had to pay top dollar for a top 5 pick in every draft for last 30 years.

I don't think there will be an OC...think Greg hit that one on the head in that Al can save some money by letting Hue do them both. And I think he was planning on bringing Ryan back but Dallas is trying hard to get him signed so who knows who we will end up with :/

Whilst i don't agree with hood winking the coach.... But it's Tom Cable fault for running practices which led to us losing 2 OTA's

I think Al will win this court case yet again cause it's the coach responsibility to run a smooth practice & plus it's probably in the contract somewhere, but the Dumb fuck Cable used his contract as a napkin after eating 2 ounds of wings and a gallon of soda pop

i personally like us stringing out the announcement of the HC.

At least wait til the superbowl concludes... there's a very good chance that Tomlin, McCarthy, Bellechick, Lovie or Rex could become available if one of the teams still left suffers a very embarrassing loss.

Also there's some great assistances on those teams.

IF it's going to be Hue... then he can wait.

What world are you living in that makes you think ANY of those coaches would ever consider coaching for the RAIDERS? Out of the ones you listed Lovie and Rex are the only ones even close to looking for a new job(though I can't see why). No way Rex is coming as I am sure his brother has informed him plenty of the going ons in Oakland. Lovie may consider. But as the Bears are once again going to the NFC championship game under him, I doubt he is going anywhere.

The assistants maybe. But if the only choice is Oakland or remaining an assistant with a playoff ready team. I think the choice is easy.

I guess Cable won't be sitting up in the luxury box with Al Davis and Jim Otto  :'(

Al spends tens of millions on free agents, then pinches pennies with his coaches. What's up with that?
I wonder if we'll be seeing an explanation with the overhead projector?

Seeing how Al has withheld money from 4 of his last 5 coaches makes for a great incentive for prospective new coaches, huh? I wonder if they can come up with something similar to a prenuptual agreement, that Al and the new coach can sign to prevent these things in case of another "breakup" later on.

This is from a a Steve Corkran article about the Cable/Davis issue:

Midway through the season, Cable told Bay Area News Group that people "would be stunned if they knew what I'm being forced (by Davis) to do out here."

When told that people probably had a fair idea, Cable snapped: "(People) have no idea. It's going to come out soon, though." He added that he had not spoken with Davis since training camp, three months earlier.

It also goes on to say Cable was forced to use players he didn't want to play, and keep them on the roster. I'm starting to wonder why I keep rooting for this organization. Because Davis is obviously a horrible fucking person, regardless of whatever kinds of barriers he broke down decades ago. The guy is a true-blue asshole.

I totally agree mate... chances are slim.

But there's no need to announce Hue straight away when the chances of other teams firing coaches now are slim to none.

To relate to my own situations as of late, When there's one bottle of water left on the supermarket shelf... some people can get pretty desperate in times of need. Al has the only vacant spot and apart from the other 31 hired NFL head coaches i'm sure there's another 5 Billion people on the planet who'd love to be steering a organization.

I don't think any of it surprises us at all.  But like Randy pointed out..it's just embarrassing how fucked up the entire setup is up top in Oakland.  Some of you get mad when the media-heads talk about it...but hell...it is clearly a joke.  And the fact that Al pays so much money for free agents/draft picks that never contribute (and he STILL wants on the field) but continually skimps on his coaches....

I went to Jacksonville this year and was planning on coming out and hanging with all of you in Oaktown this year for a game (given there is football) but I may find it hard to do...I'm past fed up with this bullshit...

This is not some Business man like Paul Allen running the team. This is Al Motherfucking Davis. The godfather of football. He has every right to run his team into the ground (but i don't believe he is)

Cable was a bum... plain and simple. he screwed up by missing out on OTA days and should be punished accordingly.

The funny thing is that us as Raider fans go through this kinda shit almost every fucking offseason.  We ALWAYS freak out about what free agents might walk, we complain about the free agents Al brings in, Raider Greg threatens to not renew his season tickets ;),  we fight about the coaching staff, we always say "FUCK AL", but then he throws massive $$$$$$$$ at someone we all want then we say Als not afraid to pay his guys he wants, and then the draft.

As we get closer to the draft, all the conversations go like this, "We should draft so and so" and then someone replies like this "What? We don't need so and so, Did you actually watch any Raider games last year? If you know anything about football you would know that we need to draft this kid out of (insert college name here)"  

And what's even funnier about all the shit we bicker about is, is the fact that I LOVE IT!!!!  Go Raiders!  Go ahead HELLRAIDER, bash Al all you want! Its all good!  We all know when the Raiders return to glory that we are all gonna be kissing Al's ass again!  I fucking love it!!! :D :D

HueJax must know what he's getting himself into. Al will be Al and will always have a say on operations/coaching! To think otherwise is asking for disaster! 1st off, Al Davis don't believe in rebuilding! HIS RAIDERS are always PLAY-OFF teams at least that's what he thinks! Hue must be in the same mindset as Al and in my opinion Hue can take this Raider team (given every one comes back) to the next level. I've always believed that the ticket to the play-offs lies in winning the division and its OUR (the Raiders) time as all of the AFC west are somewhat in dis-array. The past season was a BLUE MOON, sweeping the Div. and not going post-season (heck, the chickens did with a losing record). I believe Hue can equal/do better than the past season. Money has never been an object to Al, particularly to loyal Raiders guys, so I expect most of the guys back. Everything remains to be seen! Hopefully the Union and the Owners agree soon.

Al has a tendancy of producing great young football minds, losing Gruden was a shame... But it was bound to happen.

The way I see it is these young fresh minds looking to break into the HC land will always bite at the opportunity to work with the worlds most respected football mind. We've had Shannahan & Chucky who were holding clipboards in  there diapers & then went on to win superbowls... The way that I see it is sometimes the younger pupils think they've outdone there zen master and look to go on it by there own.

There's a reason i love the raiders and it revolves around Al's Philosiphy... We play a running game with vertical passing (& none of this QB stat padding WC offense... we play strictly man to man which in my eyes in the pentultimate football battle one athlete vs another & I love the Raiders because of the offseason theatrics (the good and the bad)


All i'm saying is if you have not figured out how this ship is run by now and your not liking the Raiders then the Steeler, Patriot, Niner or Cheesehead Nation will always accept you with open arms... But FUCK!!! Anyone who wants to whinge about Al Davis is probably a person who smokes weed for the taste but doesn't like to get fucking high in the process.

Well hopefully we do get Saunders now after hiring Hue, I remember Saunders from when he was here with the Chiefs in my hometown under Dick Vermeil and that explosive offense at that time, and he loves the run game. Hopefully he can bring the same to us, but we gotta get him here. I'm not that even worried about he OC tho. Does anyone have the list of DC's that are available?? I haven't heard of one good person available.

This is about the best we could realistically hope for in Jackson.  I think most of the players will be content to stay...and possibly a few come in with Jackson.  A few quotes I've read already:

“I’m excited about Hue getting the head coaching job,” Raiders tight end Zach Miller said in a phone interview. “I really like the direction our offense is going and how much we improved. This was the best offensive year we’ve had since I’ve been a Raider. I’m excited to have the continuity.”

Jackson was popular with players on both sides of the ball in Oakland, with the defenders enjoying the competitive nature he brought to practice each day. Linebacker Quentin Groves(notes) wrote on his Twitter feed, “Congrats to Hue Jackson … This is gonna be a great ride!!!”

And Hellraider...I agree on the DC....we have all seen outstanding jobs in game planning over the past few years on the def side of the ball (KC, SD, and Pittsburgh, Cinnci, Philly last year) and then see utter disasters as well like Pittsburgh this year.  This has been the case with Marshall, Ryan, and on and on.  Al wants the base 4 with man coverage 90% of the time...period.  Seems like when our coaches get creative...he says "that's enough of that" I dunno.  On the bright side...we have the best front 4 we've had in a while :/

I know a lot of you are life long fans but seriously STFU with the Al Davis bashing.
If you don't like it, then leave.
This is not some Business man like Paul Allen running the team. This is Al Motherfucking Davis. The godfather of football. He has every right to run his team into the ground (but i don't believe he is)
Cable was a bum... plain and simple. he screwed up by missing out on OTA days and should be punished accordingly.
I hear the Chargers bandwagon is taking nominations!!!
Like in any organization you somtimes may not agree with the decisions managment make.  No one is jumping ship, some of us are expressing our displeasure with some of the moves that are being made. Maybe it's that I don't understand the moves that are being made but as a fan I want better, I expect better...especially when the owner preaches he wants the have the "finest organization", "finest coaches" and "finest players".  I want to boast that we have the finest of all of these.  I think by Al keeping Hue and promoting him to HC is a better move then brining yet someone else new in and keeps the ship somewhat stable.
Noting wrong with wanting and expecting the best of our Raiders....and if some don't agree then what a better place to express that then RNP......

Some bay area beat writers are saying that Chuck Pagano is likely to be the new DC.  Some have credited Pagano in helping Nnamdi emerge as the best corner in the league.  I believe he was with the team back in 2005-2006. I guess the bright spot is that Nnamdi likes him of course and I'm hoping would consider returning as a result of the hire.

Does not your inside "MAN" tell you all that is Raiders??? Hey Miller"lite", Just because its the way Al works does not make it a good thing bro........Al Davis has fucked every coach for the past 10 seasons for Loss after Loss.......He had one of his Snakes like good old John Herrera tell Cable what Al wanted or even sent letters ( Al is big on letters) to tell Cable who to keep and who to play.....However you slice it, its FUCKED up for the team and for the fans. This old fuck needs to do a face plant in his bowl of Grits and let someone else take this team......

Agreed LSD

Raider Greg, I'm not commenting on it being a good or bad thing.  But Cable took the job knowing the conditions and now wants to complain about the conditions.  Reminds me of a guy who worked in sanitation as a trash man.  Then after he was terminated, he filed a lawsuit complaining he worked in unsanitary conditions.

I think they come in here wanting to learn the finer aspects of the game from one of the true greats.

Anyone who says "But he picks the coaches for his HC".. that's probably true, but when your a 30 year old kid wonder, you need a older head to pick your staff because you probably don't have the connections in the industry yet

His fingers have been like that for a while. I noticed it when we saw him a year or two ago, but they look like they're gotten worse. When we were in Nashville for the season opener this year and we saw Al entering the Raiders hotel, I remember seeing his fingers and thinking, "wow...Al's hands look BAD!".

Arthritis I guess? I haven't heard anyone mention it in print....but I'll bet we'll be hearing some mention of it after that press conference. Did you noticed the sound of all the camera shutters going off when Al raised his hand to scratch his nose, and his fingers looked like they were curved backwards? He held his hand in that position for about 5 seconds, and people were taking photos constantly.

I hear ya dude.  And I realize how he's only got a window of a couple years at best.  It's just I remember when Cable was hired and Raider fans were like WTF and now all of a sudden he's John Madden.

Those who thought that teams like KC and Rivers would beat us were simply playing the odds. Seeing as the Chargers were going into this year with a 14 game winning streak against us, I think that being pessimistic about the out come was understandable. For seven very long seasons we have watched this team fail in ways thought unimaginable by many long time RAIDER fans. But with every new season hope sprang eternal, and every fan on this site from the time I started posting here was optimistic for new season and the promise it held. Only to have that optimism crushed by week 5. So I hope you can see where some of us are coming from.

I can't speak for all those who post here. But for me. My wife doesn't want to here my thoughts on the RAIDERS as she is not a fan. This forum offers a place for myself, and many others to express, those feeling whether good or bad. So yeah when the RAIDERS are doing bad negative comments will be made. And when they are doing well we will celebrate. This is the life of a fan.

Our calls of doomsday are not unfound as we have history on our side. We all feel as though we have seen this movie before and can be pretty sure of it's outcome. But let me be the first to say. I want nothing, I repeat NOTHING, more than for Jackson and Al to prove me wrong, and if and when they do. I can assure you I will scream it from the tallest mountain and post in it's own thread, that I was wrong! And I have a feeling many others will join me. As a fan I want nothing but success for this team. Next year I will root for Jackson, his staff, and who ever dons the SILVER AND BLACK. Because no matter how much I bitch, complain, whine, or fuss about how things are done in OAKLAND. WIN LOSE OR TIE, A RAIDER FAN TILL I DIE!!!!

What is with U.  I like the way you say bullshit on the podcast and put it in my post.  U should be uniting RaiderNation not dividing them.  Also be careful.  Skully is going to call U gay for your ballsack comment(unless he just likes to single me out which means he has no ballsack of his own) which I will decline to suck.  Although some here would like for me too be, I'm not gay. 

Anyway, keep doing what you do and putting out fires. 

I see your reading comprehension is about as good as your spelling. I never called you gay. Who you fuck is of no concern of mine.

No doubt.  I am sick of all these fucking doomsday purveyors on this site.  You'd think we were the fucking Carolina Panthers.  They are plenty of crybaby bitch Pats and Giants out here by me, they'd be glad to take you whiners.  Come on guys, we are the fucking RAIDER NATION and our team is the OAKLAND RAIDERS!

I am all for people to speak their minds and complain if need be but when we have success...SHUT YOUR FUCKING TRAPS.  Cuz all you idiots did was bitch about how we'll get torched by Rivers or blasted by KC, etc etc.  I could go on and on.  Every game RNPers post how we are going to get killed but then bask in victory. 




I can assure you that I am not a doomsday Raider fan.   Its just that you can expect jackson to be fired in the next 2 -3 years.........That is history and that is a fact!  He will already be behind the 8 ball if all of our great free agents from this year dont return.............
I am just pointing out the obvious here....Look at the teams around the league.....How many are run my an 81 year old man? I mean Dude......The guy was paranoid years ago and it is obvious he needs help......Were you proud of our great owner on TV? Did he demonstrait the wisdom and knowledge of the great owner of the Raiders? OR did he look like a slightly confused old man holding on to his lifes work that has been slipping through his fingers for the past 8 years? You be the judge but I have great respect for what he did but not so much for what he has shown us as a leader, owner, boss and NFL legend these past 8 seasons. He has put a stain on his greatness and this is sad to see.

Jackson basically promised the Raider Nation playoffs and superbowl appearences.  He might be able to do it with this current Raider team, but if the free agents don't return then the coaching position will be the revolving door that it has been.

I share your fear.  I think that if we see  major improvement in our receiving corps then we won't have to rely on Miller as much, but I would miss him if he left.  Mr. Al Davis better do whatever it takes to keep those players, even if he has to get on his knees and start humming on some balls.   ???

I in no way shape or form think Al Davis ever embarrasses himself.. Did you see when Kwakami asked him that raider hating question about the revolving door for head coaches at Alamaeda? he never blamed the coaches but took full responsibility for saying that he didn't give the coaches enough good players to win.

I just don't think anyone should be embarrassed about Al Davis, if you want your regular cut of the mill CEO who turns up 9-5 and takes home a pay cheque then a team like Seattle would be better suited to you. But if you want one of those fun and theatrical CEO'S like at Google who have comfy couches, yoga classes in the middle of the floor and still blow out of the water in terms of sales and quarterly growth then please follow the Oakland Raiders.

It's tough to fathom for some that Cable firing was a good thing... Cable might be a Dale Earnhart type driver in his body with that will to win and do his best, but the dude will only ever get the maximum performance similar to a Ford Prius... Al Davis understands that Hue turned the raiders from the 32nd best offense into the 6th best in 1 single season and is basically handing Dale Earnhart the keys to a motherfucking Mustang or Ferrari.

In all honesty.. The media will continue to ask Questions at these press conferences that other GM's wouldn't answer.. I respect and love Al Davis when he tells the truth and nothing but the Truth! Al is a great man!

You're absolutely right.  It is a forum.

I guess those fans who simply say "Hue sucks and the Raiders will be horrible" just annoy me to no end. 

The last thing I want to be on here is a d-bag.  I just was in a pissed off mood reading some of these comments and wonder where the hell is the "believing" in our team?!

However, I do believe that the press conference was "excellent."  You know that the reporters love to get Al going and he loves the spotlight.  They all do.  One needs to look no further than Brett Favre or remember watching Michael Jordan in a Washington Wizards uniform.  I do not feel he embarrassed himself.  He did get some figures wrong, as we never went “5 and 13.”

There have been a few posts that insinuate Al is an old, pathetic man and so on and so forth.  If it is really true that he orchestrated this last draft class...is he really that senile???

I look at Al like this, he spent his entire life working to get where he is.  I wouldn't want to relinquish it either!!!

It's like telling one of your parents, "Well Pop, it's that time.  You've had a nice run but now it's time to go the old-age home."  I can speak for my Dad to say that there's no fucking way.

Didn't mean to offend anyone or question anyone’s “fandom.”   I apologize if I did.

I watched two press conferences.  1) Being the introduction of Hue Jackson and Al Davis giving the state of affairs. Al answered all the tough questions, he was forthright and took responsibility for some of the past failures (coaches, players etc..). Both Hue and Al were upbeat and gave a positive outlook for the future and was committed to putting a better product on the field.  As a fan I loved it.  How could you not?

2)Al Davis throwing Cable under the bus.  Why do that? What purpose did that serve? Is this what is going to happen in the future for all coaches who are let go? Do you think that's going to entice future coaches to want to work for him? I don't see that as vehicle to attract strongest and brightest coaches, coordinators etc...This is what I thought was embarrassing.

Just my opinion and didn't think he needed to go to that level.  Cable was on sirus/XM radio....and chose to high road night...classy.

But if you back it up a bit, Al stood by Tom Cable when he could've fired him for cause at the start of last season.

Randy Hanson got hit, accusations flew that Cable was a wife beater... that pissed off a lot of people and more people hated the organization for it. Al probably let Cable stick around because he knew he'd get ripped in the media for making a bad HC hire. Cable definitely redeemed himself with flashes of promises in 2009 and then a underachieving season in 2010 (to only get 3 more wins when you fire Russell, get a draft class that is perfect & have a Offensive Coordinator after whining about being stretched thinned)

Al stood by Cable during his tenure here, but at the end of the day. Cable was a bad man & you can tell Al is a man with great morals about respecting women and your work colleagues. (Do you remember the stories about Hanson being a person Al Davis saw great promise in, to fire your snitch because he was Cable enemy... I guess that took a lot of effort for Al to do)

All I'm pointing out is this isn't the Oakland Raiders dudes! it hasn't been for awhile we are living in the past. It is now Al Davis's personal chess board and he has forgotten how to play chess. Remember all the things we said were a problem before and how we said they were playing for Cable, well none of the problems have changed: still no GM, ass kissing front office, new head coach after best season in years (remember Gruden anyone), no explanation for any of the coaches he fires except Al doesn't like them and shows not class while doing it, former players unhappy (Gannon), current players unhappy (Lechler) All I'm saying is we are taking steps back not forward if this is not true, Please gives me some positives! and no adding a new head coach to make it 7 in the past 10 years is not a positive for me.

Very true, He's benefieted from being on woeful Defenses between 2002-2009!!! Quarterbacks like Kerry Collins, Andrew Walter, Aaron Brooks & Jamarcus Russell being Quarterbacks that are notorious for 3rd & out & Drive Killers.

But do we need him? You don't see the correlation that bad quarterbacks = punters looking like the star of the show.

Our Offense is going to be crazy good... Shane Lechler has the easiest job in Hawaii... In those probowl games the punters might only kick the ball 1 or 2 times cause the teams are being led down the field by your Mannings, Brees and Bradys.

I'm not saying Lechler is a bad bloke, & my feelings towards his comments were like taking it with a grain of salt, because league wide the life of a punter is like someone who'd shine shoes back in the Industrial Revolution.. Who cares? he might be a nice bloke and captain. But like Wu-Tang Hokie pointed out when was the last time you won us a football game? Dudes entitled to a opinion.

Ok sorry i must of typed it wrong. I said he had the chance to become a good punter because he had all those opportunities to kick in game scenarios.

Just look at the life of a punter during training camp... Do they kick a lot of balls? Or are the Raiders so paranoid about Lechler/Janikowski getting injured during the preseason that they shelf them until game 3 of the preseason as to not increase there likelyhood of injuries.

I agree.. BEST PUNTER in the game & the Net Average Stat is all time leading... But I want to cut him cause a) we could buy a really special player with 4 million extra funds which is tied up in our punter (Janikowski is worth every penny. & b) I'm hurt that LEchler spoke the truth about Al getting rid of Cable.. Al paid him handsomely and Lechler gets pissed and runs to the media? I'm sure things will smooth over with those 2. maybe Lechler over-reacted? He'd be best to keep his mouth shut and say the right things at training camp to keep earning 8 million over 2 years!!

Just look at the life of a punter during training camp... Do they kick a lot of balls? Or are the Raiders so paranoid about Lechler/Janikowski getting injured during the preseason that they shelf them until game 3 of the preseason as to not increase there likelyhood of injuries.

I agree.. BEST PUNTER in the game & the Net Average Stat is all time leading... But I want to cut him cause a) we could buy a really special player with 4 million extra funds which is tied up in our punter (Janikowski is worth every penny. & b) I'm hurt that LEchler spoke the truth about Al getting rid of Cable.. Al paid him handsomely and Lechler gets pissed and runs to the media? I'm sure things will smooth over with those 2. maybe Lechler over-reacted? He'd be best to keep his mouth shut and say the right things at training camp to keep earning 8 million over 2 years!!

I think it will pass and he will be back.  And honestly...with our track record of picking up free agents, I'd just assume keep him as take the risk on who Al gambles on :P

I am torn on this one.

There is no denying Shane's ability, let's get that out first and foremost.

Is he worth as much as we pay him?  Probably not.

If means keeping some of our prized FAs....he might have to go.

In regards to loyalty, Lechler should have some. He is paid ridiculously well.  Don't come out and badmouth the organization. Just tell your agent you've had it and tell him you want out...

It looked like it was a done deal back in 2005:

Sean Payton Reportedly to Become Raiders' New Coach

Al Davis has a history of not hiring high-profile coaches. Apparently, that trend will continue.

The Dallas Morning News reported on its web site Tuesday night that the Oakland Raiders will make Dallas Cowboys assistant Sean Payton their next coach.

According to the newspaper, Payton is expected to sign a four-year, $1.3 million contract. He spent much of Sunday and Monday interviewing with Davis, the Raiders' renegade owner.

Payton, 40, would become the NFL's youngest head coach. If wide receiver Jerry Rice returns to the club, he would be a year older than Payton.

The hiring also would complete a remarkable career rehabilitation for Payton, who as New York Giants offensive coordinator was stripped of his play-calling duties midway through the 2002 season.

This season, Payton was on Bill Parcells' staff with the Cowboys, overseeing the team's passing game while working with quarterbacks.

Hiring a relative unknown is nothing new for Davis. In 1998, he made Jon Gruden the youngest coach in NFL history at 34.

Gruden went 40-28 in four seasons and led the Raiders to an appearance in the AFC championship game before leaving over differences with Davis following the 2001 season.

In Oakland, Payton would replace Bill Callahan, who was fired one season after leading the Raiders to their first Super Bowl appearance since 1984.

In 2003, the Raiders went 4-12 and tied for last place in the AFC West. Callahan also drew the wrath of many of his veteran players for his unapproachable attitude.

With the Raiders, Payton would inherit one of the NFL's oldest teams and a club that is expected to have major salary cap problems. Oakland owns the second pick in April's draft.

then this happened: (note that the Raiders were going to go after Rex Ryan as an assistant under Peyton....he could have been a backup plan for Peyton if he didn't work out)


Sean Payton Will Not Be The Next Raiders' Head Coach


In a situation so bizarre it could only involve the Oakland Raiders, the agreement in principle with Sean Payton to become the franchise's next head coach has broken apart, and he will remain with the Dallas Cowboys as their assistant head coach.

ESPN.com reported Tuesday night that the two sides had struck an agreement on a four-year contract. Other published reports contended that Payton had not yet been presented the parameters of a contract.

In a Wednesday evening news conference with Bay Area reporters, Oakland owner Al Davis insisted the team had not settled on new coach to succeed the deposed Bill Callahan.

Typical of the Raiders, team officials on Tuesday were phoning Dallas-area newspapers, which also reported an agreement had been reached, in attempts to find out the sources of those stories.

But the Raiders apparently were so comfortable they had a deal, ESPN.com learned, that they began contacting assistant coaches from other teams -- including Baltimore defensive line coach Rex Ryan -- about interviewing for jobs on Payton's staff. And Dallas offensive coordinator Maurice Carthon, who also interviewed with Davis, acknowledged Tuesday night that Payton had won the job.

A source close to Payton told ESPN.com Wednesday night that it "probably isn't prudent to discuss (the situation) right now, because it is in such flux. ... But the bottom line was that there were things in the contract that Sean couldn't live with."

From interviews with several people involved in negotiations, it appears Payton backed away from the deal. Why? Several reasons:

Differences over issues of control, including staffing and personnel.

Reluctance to uproot his family for the second time in a year.

The feeling that it was neither the right time -- nor the Raiders the right team -- for Payton to begin his NFL head coaching career.

The skills of persuasion possessed by Dallas owner Jerry Jones and coach Bill Parcells.

It is believed both Jones and Parcells spoke at length with Payton on Wednesday about the positives and negatives of the Raiders job. Unlike defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, who received a considerable salary increase when he rejected an offer to become head coach at the University of Nebraska two weeks ago, Payton did not have his current contract with the Cowboys upgraded.

The Raiders job would have capped a remarkable career turnaround for Payton. Less than two years ago, the then-offensive coordinator for the New York Giants was stripped of his play-calling duties by coach Jim Fassel.

Davis fired Callahan earlier this month after two seasons and a 17-18 record. The Raiders played in last season's Super Bowl, but Callahan came under fire this year from many veteran players who wanted him removed. Indeed, Callahan was, after a 4-12 season. He was hired last week as the new head coach at the University of Nebraska.

League sources emphasized Tuesday evening that Payton, who this season was the assistant head coach to Parcells, had yet to sign a contract and that there still were issues to be resolved. "Remember who [Payton] is dealing with here," said a league source, referring to Davis.

That cautionary note proved prophetic.

Payton, 40, would have become the NFL's youngest head coach. The seven-year league veteran is about four months younger than Bucs coach Jon Gruden (Callahan's predecessor in Oakland) and about eight months younger than Jacksonville's Jack Del Rio.

Payton is believed to be the only candidate among those known to have interviewed with Davis who was called back a second time to meet with him. Payton met much of the day Monday, and also part of Tuesday, with Davis and Oakland officials.

Beyond Payton, Davis also interviewed Kansas City offensive coordinator Al Saunders by phone; met in person with Dennis Green, who recently was named coach of the Arizona Cardinals; interviewed Carthon; and interviewed Greg Knapp, then the 49ers offensive coordinator. Knapp subsequently was named the new offensive coordinator in Atlanta.

The rumor that Al Saunders had already been hired came from Adam Schefter four days ago. We all know that Al Davis refers to Adam as a "false rumor monger". I wonder who Adam's mole is within the raiders organization? Or maybe his info came from Al Saunders' people. Who knows?

I agree 100%!  I just doubt that it will be Jackson that persuades the MUCH NEEDED free agents to stay onboard. If history repeats itself, it will depend on how many zeros Al Davis decides to add on the end of their contracts.  If Jackson is the man does manage to convince them to stay, he can call all of them, "Sweetcakes!"  As long as the team is kicking ass, I don't care...  8)

I love how you act as though quality, and I stress the word QUALITY free agents are just clamoring to be an Oakland Raider. History has proven that not to be the case. I proved it to you once before. But you may have missed it so I will show you again.

Here are some of the many free agents that have come to Oakland since the days of Chucky. Randy Moss, Aaron Brooks, DeAngelo Hall, Lamont Jordan, Kerry Collins, Ray Buchanan, Ted Washington, Warren Sapp, Amos Zereoue, Edward Jasper, Dominic Rhodes, Gerard Warren, Jeremy Newberry, Tim Dwight, Javon Walker, Ashley Lelie, Gibril Wilson, Charlie Frye, J.P. Losman, and Kyle Boller, to name a few.

These are a bunch of has been, never was, and old washed up free agents the Raiders have had over the past few seasons. All showed up, cashed Al's checks and were either dropped and never heard from again, retired, or remain on the current roster. These are the types of free agents we have been attracting as of late. With the exception of Samson Satele, Richard Seymour, and maybe Tommy Kelly (jury is still out) being free agents that panned out.

No stability does not bring in good free agents. It brings in the list I posted. And last time I checked none of those players had winning seasons with the Raiders. So stop acting as though the quality players we may lose are so easily replaceable. I understand optimism. But you have your head buried in the sand.

Wow Raidersully... Great effort in proving millernation wrong when you dig deep into the record books about digging up free agents name.

All i see is a bunch of names from the 2003-2009 circa when we were a bad team and a bunch of players who were lining up for a 2nd chance & not lining up for a chance for a ring. (why don't you mention guys like Ted Hendricks and Jerry Rice who signed up to play with the raiders????)

If we'd been the same 5-11 team in 2010 then i would of got on your negative train of thought, but a 8-8 team with a 6 win zero loss in the division... well that screams of a team where a quality free agent is going to go... "hmm i might just put these Raiders over the top"

Al's never had a problem with twisting a guys arm and paying them coin... So money won't be an issue. Just look at Julius Peppers and what franchise he went too.. it was the 2009 bears whom didn't even make the playoffs. Why'd he go there? to work with Lovie Smith and Urlacher. I think this scenario in 2010 will be similar where one more good player will lead to this raiders team having a chance to compete for the 2012 AFC Championship.

Obviously my fingers are crossed that Nnamdi, Seymour, Zach Miller and Michael Bush all stick around to build on the great work Hue Jackson has done for us.

I didn't mention Hedricks and Rice for the same reason I didn't mention Alzado or Plunkett. Because neither played for this team in the recent history of the Raiders. What I proved that was when this franchise is in flux(no GM, no stability at the coaching position and so on) these are the free agents we attracted. If you choose to keep living in the past as Al does be my guest. But recent history proves my point.

As for the team this year. You may be right. Player may see this as a team on the cusp of doing great things. But since we have not show consistency over many seasons, they may think otherwise. But I hope you are right and they do come for the reasons you said.

Julius Peepers went to the Bears because they were paying big. His first choice was New England. But they pay no one more than Brady. So he took the Bears offer. A team that a QB ready to go (Cuntler), a proven HC, a proven OC (Martz), a solid defense, and a team that was four years removed from the Super Bowl. Big difference compared to a team that had it's first winning season in the last seven seasons.

Time will tell though, and as I have said many times before. I hope that you and Millernation are right and I proved wrong by the great free agents that come to Oakland. But history has proven me right so far.

I love how you act as though quality, and I stress the word QUALITY free agents are just clamoring to be an Oakland Raider. History has proven that not to be the case. I proved it to you once before. But you may have missed it so I will show you again.

Here are some of the many free agents that have come to Oakland since the days of Chucky. Randy Moss, Aaron Brooks, DeAngelo Hall, Lamont Jordan, Kerry Collins, Ray Buchanan, Ted Washington, Warren Sapp, Amos Zereoue, Edward Jasper, Dominic Rhodes, Gerard Warren, Jeremy Newberry, Tim Dwight, Javon Walker, Ashley Lelie, Gibril Wilson, Charlie Frye, J.P. Losman, and Kyle Boller, to name a few.



Wow Raidersully... Great effort in proving millernation wrong when you dig deep into the record books about digging up free agents name.

All i see is a bunch of names from the 2003-2009 circa when we were a bad team and a bunch of players who were lining up for a 2nd chance & not lining up for a chance for a ring. (why don't you mention guys like Ted Hendricks and Jerry Rice who signed up to play with the raiders????)

If we'd been the same 5-11 team in 2010 then i would of got on your negative train of thought, but a 8-8 team with a 6 win zero loss in the division... well that screams of a team where a quality free agent is going to go... "hmm i might just put these Raiders over the top"

Al's never had a problem with twisting a guys arm and paying them coin... So money won't be an issue. Just look at Julius Peppers and what franchise he went too.. it was the 2009 bears whom didn't even make the playoffs. Why'd he go there? to work with Lovie Smith and Urlacher. I think this scenario in 2010 will be similar where one more good player will lead to this raiders team having a chance to compete for the 2012 AFC Championship.

Obviously my fingers are crossed that Nnamdi, Seymour, Zach Miller and Michael Bush all stick around to build on the great work Hue Jackson has done for us.

I agree, after this season, I truly believe we have the opportunity to land some quality free agents. 

Hue has some connections with past players on teams he has coached and the addition of Saunders might sway some guys on the offensive side of the ball to come over to Oakland.  We can only hope.

RaiderSilly also didn't mention Jason Campbell  :'( as a signed free agent.  The fact that crappy coaching couldn't take advantage of the free agent talent shouldn't fall totally on the free agents. 

Some were bust and shouldn't have been signed but that is in every organization. 
Moss was productive for the Pats
Dominic Rhodes helped out the colts
DeAngelo Hall is still ballin
Ashley Lelie sucked with the hos and should have never been in the league
Aaron Brooks had zero offensive line play
Frye, Losman and Boller were signed as backups. 

Al has always taken a chance with the unwanted, outcast and castoffs

Jason Campbell wasn't a FA though pal. he had 1 year on his contract... Came here via trade & then signed a 1 year extension.

So you are saying there is a correlation between good coaching and good players. I agree. And now we are once again getting an unproven coach to try and attract potential free agents. I doesn't fall completely on the shoulders of the free agents. It falls on Al shoulders as he is the one making the decision. Which was my point in the first place. His decisions for free agents are limited to the type of players I listed when this team is doing what it has done for the last seven seasons. Instability of this organization limits who will come here.

Moss was productive for the Pats because they were winning and he was featured. Two things he was not getting here in Oakland which is why he quit on the team.
Rhodes we got knowing he was facing a four game suspension at the start of the season. Before rejoining the Colts this year he was playing in Canada. So good was he that he was out of the NFL.
Hall is an above average DB. Picking off Cuntler is not the sign of greatness. It just proves that you played the Bears this year.
I agree with you totally on Ashley. But that did not stop Al from picking him up did it? Further proving Al's recognition of talent is not what it once was and that when pickings are slim he takes some of the worse.
Brooks had no line this is true. But he was horrible long before he came to Oakland.
Frye, Losman and Boller were signed as backups. But none are of any quality. Again we get table scraps because that is all this team attracts at this time.

The difference is though that the "outcasts" of the 60's and 70's were guys who could play. They were considered outcasts because they were a little eccentric (Hendrix), plain nuts(Matuszak), or just wanted to dress and look how they wanted. The NFL has changed and now they could care less about any of that. If you can play they will figure out how to keep you. Whether you once abused dogs or raped a woman in a bathroom. If you are good, teams find room.

Because of the situation and instability in Oakland our potential free agent list is slim. Yes Al is always willing to shell out the money(one of the great things about Al). But if they are unwilling to come none of that matters. So I say again. You thinking that we simply "replace the players we may lose with free agents" is just not that simple. Losing quality player always hurts. It hurts more when you replace them with sub par free agents like we have in the past.

I wouldn't include Sapp in this list...he played hard for us.

Agreed. He played hard. But did he make a difference? Was he worth the money? Compare what he achieved in his time with the Raiders compared to Seymour. Seymour made a difference in his first game with no training camp or even a clue as to what the plays were. He has made an impact that can be seen on the field and in the locker room. Can't say I ever witnessed that with Sapp. That is why I included him on the list.

"Scratch Dennis Thurman off the list of candidates to become the next Oakland Raiders defensive coordinator.

The New York Jets denied the Raiders request to interview the defensive backs coach according to FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer.

As long as a coach is under contract a team may deny another team’s request to interview them, regardless of whether the position would be considered a promotion unless it’s to become a head coach.

On the surface you’d think Thurman would be steamed the Jets prevented him the opportunity to advance his career, but that’s not necessarily the case.

Glazer added Thurman loves working with Rex Ryan.

Thurman has twice worked with Hue Jackson in the past. The pair were colleagues with the Baltimore Ravens just a few years ago in addition to spending one season together at USC in 2000.

Former Raiders defensive coordinator Chuck Bresnahan and Jacksonville Jaguars d-line coach Joe Cullen have also been rumored to be in the running for the position."

that rules sucks about being able to deny permission only in the case of HC. It should be extended to coordinator roles imo.

Perhaps the jets value this guy?

i dont like the jags candidate. When was the last time u said 'wow, jacksonville is getting to the qb'

i really want a former player to be our dc. Preferrably a smart linebacker or secondary as those positions play a lot of run and pass defense.

I believe Tom Cable had creative control on his staff of coaches. Sometimes with these super young guys who don't have the coaching connects due to their time on the planet (ie Lane) but until Tom comes out and says, "Al made me take on this guy", then the evidence points to the coaches having control (Tom and Hue worked together at UCLA)
 
& how about Randy Hanson? He was effectively fired after the year 'cause of cable and for doing nothing wrong. He was kept around 'cause duty of care and the Raiders org having to look after the victim.

Look at Hue picking up Saunders. They worked together at Baltimore and Washington.

I'm sure Al and Hue would talk it over and Al would give his opinion.

I am glad we have our main core of coaches and now they can get together an focus on the free agents and upcoming draft. They all should be in an office talking and on the phones with our free agents to figure out deals and looking at videos for FA's.

I love the move! I've been critical of Davis since the Cable firing BUT I must say I really like the staff Hue or Al is putting together.  Rod is a the ultimate pro off and on the field.  I assume Chuck is the DC but just hasn't been announced since he now has two players (who were leaders) of his D when he was last DC.

It would be nice to see if the raiders could get Ken Norton away from whereever he is at as a linebacker coach.  Would love Jack Del Rio as a defensive coordinator but I feel he might follow Jeff Fisher if fisher gets a head coaching job.  At least the Eagles r dumb enough to keep their defensive coordinator so the raiders won't be in competition with the eagles for a top def. coor.

Carson is fine.....he never had any of  his WR's consistently and never had MCGINA  one time........he will be fine...played good enough and scored enough to win....the D lost almost all the games.....Leave Carson alone.........just needs to cut down on the INT's......this will be way better with a full offseason and a training camp.

But Gruden signed a 5 year contract extension with ESPN that began in September 2011. More than 4 1/2 years to go on that contract. You think he could get out of a contract like that?

http://www.miamiherald.com/2011/10/18/2459289/gruden-extends-deal-with-espn.html



Oh wait! I think I found the answer for myself. Now I remember seeing this...

"Sources said Gruden has decided to return to coaching in 2012 and that his current employer, ESPN, is already preparing for his departure.

Spokesmen for ESPN and the Rams declined comment on Monday night."

http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2011/12/27/2663395/jon-gruden-espn-coaching-2012-season


ESPN responded with this statement: "Gruden 'remains committed' to Monday Night Football"

The article says that Gruden's "exclusive" contract with ESPN applies only to broadcasting and not to coaching, so if Gruden wants to leave, ESPN can do nothing to stop him.

If the Packers lose at home today to the Giants I'm going to be pissed if we rush out and hire Winston Moss or Dom Capers!!!

Whats the point of hiring a 15 & 1 coach if he's going to give the Packers a 1 & Done postseason???

Is that the guy Reggie McKenzie is going to bring in to turn around this franchise??? I hope not.

Obviously there's differing factors to today's outcome.... The Packers Defense could play hella good today & Aaron Rodgers might just lay the egg. But Come on dudes!!! We'd be taking step backwards by going from Hue Jackson to a Packers Choking Candidate.

In all seriousness, my hope is that we get a proven HC. In fact, to go a step further, I would want a HC who comes right in and demands respect.  I am a bit weary about position coaches taking the reins as a HC (i.e Moss, Bowles, Perry).  However, it seems Winston Moss has been ready to move up in this league for quite a while....but, he hasn't even been a DC yet.  He is listed as a Asst. HC, I am unsure what the hell that means...

I DO NOT want any unsuccessful retreads either.   Sorry Dom Capers, your Packers D sucked last night.

We need a guy who can (and will) grab players right by the mask and won't tolerate BS.  As we all know, this is a HIGHLY UNDISCIPLINED FOOTBALL TEAM.    Successful teams do not get the kind of penalties we get and win football games.    We need a coaching staff that doesn't take excuses on why the job is not getting done.  Hue was a "players' coach"....I don't want that shit.

Give me a guy like Coughlin, Cowher or Gruden anyday (or that same personality type at least.)

I have a feeling, even though the headlines say "Head Coach", these meetings are for coordinator positions. I know McKenzie said that the next coach will be able to bring in his own coaches, but I'm sure they are making sure they do their due diligence by interviewing as many people as possible for many different coaching spots.

Just my opinion.

As NFL head coaches.....Marty Mornhinweg, Mike Tice, and Dom Capers have a combined won/loss record of 85 wins, 140 losses.

Maybe a sharp, energetic college coach from a successful program might be better? Jim Harbaugh isn't having much trouble with his coaching transition to the NFL.

Tony Dungy in this interview on PFT Live included Chip Kelly on his short list of candidates if he need to fill an NFL head coaching position. He talks about this 3 minutes into the video.

At the end of this article (see link below), it implies that if the Raiders hire a defensive minded coach, Al Saunders could stay at Oakland as OC. But if they hire an offensive minded coach, Saunders could be out...possibly going back to KC? It's all speculation though.

Title: McKenzie answers questions at airport...may hire head coach "soon" (by Saturday)
Post by: Randy on January 23, 2012, 08:41:17 PM
McKenzie says new coach could be hired 'soon'.

(http://www.raidernationpodcast.com/images/forum/McKenzie_evaluating.png)

Reggie McKenzie has been a relative man of mystery since his introductory media conference as the Raiders' new general manager on Jan. 10.

"That's just the way I like it," he said with a huge grin after getting off his connecting flight here Monday morning.

Indeed, McKenzie has made no public comments since that day...

But McKenzie was easy to spot on the plane, sporting Raiders gear from head to toe, from his Raiders cap to his Raiders polo shirt to his sweat pants emblazoned with the Raiders logo.

The first true Raiders G.M. hired since Al Davis in 1963 has his plate full and he will be joined by eight scouts, he said, here during Senior Bowl week to go through the paces. In fact, McKenzie turned his nose up at a report that said his interview with Moss last week did not go well.

"That's far from the truth," McKenzie said.

Following then, a brief Q&A with McKenzie at the Mobile airport at the dawn of Senior Bowl week…

Paul Gutierrez: How would you describe the past two weeks and everything you've been doing since you've become G.M.?

Reggie McKenzie: Lot of work, lot of fun, you know? New job. It's a dream job, so lots of things to do to get started.

PG: Have you spent much time in Alameda, or have you been on the road non-stop?

RM: Everything (laughs). I work in the in the office and been away a lot.

PG: Thoughts on these playoffs so far, had to tug at your heart at least a little to see the Packers lose right away?

RM: Yeah, yeah, that was disappointing but that's usually what happens -- the hot team usually keeps rolling. That's what happened with the Giants. They're rolling. Same with New England, really.

PG: What are your plans as the Raiders General Manager here at the Senior Bowl this week, what do you hope to get accomplished, what are some of the things on your checklist while you're here?

RM: Well, you know, the normal. Meet and greet with the players, see what they look like, kind of get an idea who's what. Coach meetings. It's kind of different, being the G.M. (smiles broadly). And trying to finalize a coach, you know?

PG: And that's the next question, obviously: where is that process right now? A lot of names out there and I know you said you wanted your "guy" and that you had a short list but didn't want to say who was on it until you had to…

RM: And I'm going to keep it like that (laughs). You'll know soon enough. Soon enough.

PG: Is this something that could happen this week?

RM: Yeah. Yeah. It could happen. It could happen by Saturday.

PG: A lot of names out there so far -- Bowles, Moss, Allen, Mornhingweg. But let me throw another name out at you…Jon Gruden?

RM: (Smiles and pauses for seven seconds) I'm going to just laugh. You can put 'giggle.' (Laughs again).

PG: Have you made any hires yet, staff, coaches, scouts?

RM: No. Our purpose first is to evaluate what we have, and I'm not in a hurry to hire and fire, at all.

PG: What about the assistant coaches that are currently under contract?

RM: That's going to be up to the new coach.

PG: So then the guys that are still under contract technically are still working until the new coach comes in?

RM: Yeah.

PG: So then they're kind of in, I don't know if limbo is the right word?

RM: Yeah, well, you know, but they're in kind of an interview mode, I would say.

PG: And the coaches no longer under contract?

RM: They're free to interview. The (new) coach could interview those guys, too. We're keeping all the doors open for the new coach.

The Raiders are reportedly preparing to interview Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen for a second time. He's the first candidate that has been invited back for a second interview. This could be getting serious. Maybe we should learn a little more about who he is.

He's known for a "bend but don't break" defense that tends to give up yardage, but his teams are usually near the top in interceptions and sacks.

Here is a video of his Broncos press conference as he was preparing the Broncos defense to face the Patriots in the playoffs.

Hell YEAAA "at the end of the day"........ The MOST worn out saying in Football! This guy is way too......."White" to be a Raider Coach....

The Raiders are reportedly preparing to interview Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen for a second time. He's the first candidate that has been invited back for a second interview. This could be getting serious. Maybe we should learn a little more about who he is.

He's known for a "bend but don't break" defense that tends to give up yardage, but his teams are usually near the top in interceptions and sacks.

Here is a video of his Broncos press conference as he was preparing the Broncos defense to face the Patriots in the playoffs.

I think we all know he really wants Moss as coach, too much history between the two. I think this second interview (since it happened after the interview with Moss) is just to see if he can either talk a better game aka beat out what Moss probably told them in the interview.

Gimme a break.  Like I have said before, I want a HC (as well as coaching staff) who immediately demands respect.  This team is undisciplined and needs direction.

Examining an Allen-Raiders pairing

If Allen is McKenzie’s hire, it will end a decades-long tradition in Oakland. John Madden, hired in 1969, was the last defense-minded head coach of the Raiders.

Even though he was a first-time coordinator, Allen had a major impact in Denver. The Broncos were last in nearly every major defensive category in 2010. However, under Allen’s guidance, Denver’s defense improved immensely in 2011 and was a big reason why the Broncos improved from 4-12 to 8-8 and why they ended up as division champions.

Oakland has a lot of talent on defense, but it has been giving up way too many big plays. If Allen gets the job and straightens out this problem, Oakland could be dangerous.

In addition to improving his own team, McKenzie would weaken a rival with this move. That’s a nice bonus.

Post by: Randy on January 25, 2012, 03:11:40 AM
Just because he was with the Broncos and not many people ever heard of him is no reason to condemn him. After all, remember....Gruden was a QB's coach with the Packers....and no one ever heard of him when Al Davis hired him.

(http://www.raidernationpodcast.com/images/forum/DennisAllenRaiders.jpg)

Allen is now the youngest head coach in the NFL, just like Gruden was. Just like Al Davis was when he was head coach. Just like John Madden was when he was hired. If he turns out to be good, he could be here for a LONG time. That's what we want, isn't it? Continuity? Just because he's supposedly a disciplinarian isn't a reason to slam him either....especially since he hasn't even started yet. The team who just set the all-time record for penalties may need a little more discipline. Comments I've read from Broncos players seem to be positive. They liked him. The Broncos fans are pissed that he's coming to us. Look on their forums. I'm pretty excited about his potential actually. I'd rather have a 39 year old up-and-comer than a 58 year old Brian Billick who might decide to retire again in a couple of years, or return to broadcasting.

Look at this video that was recorded just after the Broncos hired Allen as their defensive coordinator. The things he says about what he wants his defenses to be.....they sound pretty good for the Raiders. He said, "we're going to be build off of speed and athleticism. We want to be a very fast, violent, aggressive type of defense." I know he won't be our DC, but I'm sure he'll have an influence on our defense....I hope.

Watch the video:
http://www.denverbroncos.com/multimedia/videos/Catching-up-with-Dennis-Allen/860882eb-9ec9-4e5f-ad34-9faa843fb98f (http://www.denverbroncos.com/multimedia/videos/Catching-up-with-Dennis-Allen/860882eb-9ec9-4e5f-ad34-9faa843fb98f)

Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey, in Honolulu for the Pro Bowl, was disappointed when he heard the news.

"He knew how to get us ready," Bailey told the NFL Network. "I give him a lot of credit for the success we had this year. ... He's one of the most intense coaches I've had.

"I know what type of team he's going to have (with the Raiders). Very intense, hard-nosed, tough. That's the way he is. That's what I expect his team to be."


I know that as a player, Allen didn't make it in the NFL, but that doesn't mean anything either. You know what the old saying is.....

Those who CAN.......DO, and those who CAN'T.........TEACH.

Guys who were great athletes are often not great teachers, and guys who weren't the greatest athletes often ARE great teachers. John Madden played in College, but never the NFL. Bellichick never played pro football. He played it in college, but he favored lacrosse. Anyone know if Al Davis played football?

Dennis Allen wasn't a completely crappy football player either. He was good. He was a DB who was highly recruited out of high school in Texas, played DB for Texas A & M, and played on the defense that was known as the "Wrecking Crew"....and went to three consecutive Cotton Bowls. They made one of those bowl games due to a 4th quarter interception by Dennis Allen.

From what I hear, Allen is a great teacher, who always made sure that every member of his defense understood their role and how to achieve it.

He's probably going to seem awkward in his public speaking at first, most new head coaches are....but they improve in that area pretty fast. The way he relates to his team is the important thing.

Maybe we made a coup! The Broncos had 6 new defensive coordinators in 6 years prior to Allen, and their defense was terrible. He almost instantly improved them....but now they'll have to find their 7th new coordinator in 7 years!  ;D

My two cents.

At least he’s not a retread. Mornihinweg, Tice etc....

He’s a defensive minded coach, a great departure from since John Madden?

Everything I’ve read says he well respected and is an up and coming coach.

We'll see who he gets as his coordinators to see if he can pull in some real talent.

What else is there Raider Nation? We wanted changes, we wanted a GM, we wanted something to be different.

He has no allegiances to anyone in Raider town.

I heard that Allen was next in line to be the HC of the Rams if Jeff Fisher didn't want the gig.

Raider Frank is right on, at least he is not a retread.

He must be somewhat impressive as far as interviewing and his approach to coaching.  I really thought McKenzie was going to go the Green Bay route and I am actually glad he didn't.  No one there really impressed me except for Joe Philbin.

I'm tryin' to be positive here!

I kind of like the hire.  He is a hardass, good coach that knows how to prepare a team and is exactly what we need to shore up the defense.  And lets face it...it's been our achilles heel the past several seasons.  If we end up keeping Saunders for our OC it could work out great for us ;)

Found this on Dennis Allen:

"He must have a military background, that's the first thing I thought of. Must have been in the military or had that in his family background, some way or another. That's the way he carries himself," cornerback Andre Goodman said. "His thing is discipline, discipline, discipline. Do everything right, all the time, and never let up."


I LOVE IT.  I have been wanting a disciplinarian, no-nonsense Coach from jump

I also listened the audio clips and watched the video Randy linked up on him....I can't lie, I'm excited for the guy.  Nothing but positive takes on this guy from others around the league.  He's young but a strong personality and seems like a great motivator and leader.

The Raiders still have not confirmed the hiring. CSN says the introductory news conference is scheduled for Monday. Given the news conference will be broadcast on CSN, it’s a safe bet to say the Raiders have confirmed it to CSN.
McKenzie returned to Alameda on Wednesday. Allen should be through checking out pro prospects in Mobile today or Friday.

Me too, but it's to be expected.  Raider fans wanted to keep Cable for god's sakes.  The same thing happened when Huejax was brought in.  I guess it's because our team has sucked for too long and we get impatient (for good reason I might add).  I'm with you though, I am starting to get excited about the hire, especially the more I read and learn about our new HC.

it looks like i can't post a reply to randy's links to old articles ... i read the one about the raiders hiring gruden back in 98. on that sfgate page was a link to an article by glenn dickey ripping on the raiders. i found this quote funny:

"So when Davis thought about fixing the defense, he brought in Bill Belichick for interviews. Now the defensive coordinator for the New York Jets, Belichick is regarded as a great defensive coach, but in a five-year stint with the then- Cleveland Browns as head coach (1991-95), he had only one winning season. He seems to be a great assistant who can't make the jump to head coach. Davis just fired a coach like that, Joe Bugel, and it would make little sense to hire another."

wow ... good call ... belichick is totally on the same level as joe bugel. totally. dickey then goes on to say that instead of hiring gruden, the raiders should bring back art shell. wow ... another good call. that really worked out well. dickey was a freaking genius. al should have made him GM.

we haven;t had a young coach and a new general manager since Al davis had these titles(early 60's)...we were playing for a playoff spot till the last game of the season...we haven;t had that since 2002..please listen to the grant napier interview of Dennis allen that was just posted on www.raiders.com.we still have the same players...kinda exciting palmer and campbell competing for the starting qb spot-competition between players for a starting job is good....just think how PISSED Bronco fans are that we STOLE their defensive coordinator-who turned their lousy defense into a playoff team(in ONE year).Dennis was also the db coach when the saints UPSET the Colts in the Super Bowl....i was SADDENED when Hue jackson wasn;t retained but i think that Reggie Mckenzie got a Great head coach in the making....don;t you think dennis has more UPSIDE than Tom Cable?

We won't know anything until we see it on the field.  I like that his press conference wasn't the comical show we are used to.  It was all business.  What am I excited is for is that this Coach seems to UNDERSTAND that costly mistakes, lapses on D, inconsistency on both sides of the ball, and penalties does not make a solid team.  We haven't had a Coach since Chucky that would get after a player's ass for a stupid penalty/mistake.  Seems like Allen pays attention to detail, which is something this team needs.  He comes from a good pedigree, unlike most of the loser Coaches we have had here.  I am hoping Mckenzie is able to secure some picks in this year's draft one way or another and can land some FAs from around the league.  We need some help...especially in that god-awful secondary.
Title: Re: Raiders Coaching Staff
Post by: Raider Frank on January 31, 2012, 02:24:31 PM
I for one am optimistic with this new coach, He said some good things.

1. He isn’t going to call the defensive plays, he believes that the defensive coach should call his owns plays. But he will be involved in every aspect of the game.

When is the last time this has happened. Hue called the offense, Cable Called the offense, Norv called the offense, shit brain Kiffen called the offense. Ok, Art Shell didn’t call the offense but really.....

It looks like we have a HEAD coach not a coach that is going to be stuck on one side of the ball.

2. He is going to evaluate the the entire team, not just run a system that he wants to run, he’s not necessarily tied to the 4-3 or 3-4 but is going to evaluate the team and run what fits the defense players he has.

I like this, that’s what needs to happen. You cannot have a team plays schemes it doesn’t have the personnel to run.

I could go on, needless to say i’m on board.

It will take time. I am not expecting to go to the Super Bowl next year
Dennis Allen thinks he has the players to win next year. I know he has to say stuff like that to get his players on his side.
But it’s not going to be easy. A lot of these players have seen a lot of coaches come and go and have heard a lot of speeches and direction.

The staff he chooses will be the biggest factor

Go Raiders

I kind of had the same reaction as you when I saw the headline. I thought, "if Allen is hiring his own staff, why bring in an ex-Al Davis guy? But then I found out Knapp worked with Allen in Atlanta as OC there. Plus, I was reminded that when Knapp was our offensive coordinator in '07-'08, he had JaMarcus "Purple Drank" Russell to work with. Also, Knapp's last offense, with the Texans, were pretty successful the last few years.

ProFootballTalk.com says, "Knapp, 48, is one of the NFL’s most running game-oriented offensive minds...the Texans finished the 2011 regular season tied for the NFL lead in rushing attempts...The hire would seem to make the Raiders even more likely to use the franchise tag on free agent running back Michael Bush."

Houston layed a few losses on us the last few years. Maybe he'll be ok. On the other hand, cleaning house and starting fresh did have a certain appeal to it.

Title: Re: Raiders Coaching Staff
Post by: NCRaider on January 31, 2012, 08:01:17 PM
I'll go against to norm and offer something positive...

1) Knapp is a good OC and his offensives have been at the top in rushing offenses.
2) Allen needs someone he trusts to run the offense (Allen indicated he will not be calling offensive plays) and they have a past working relationship in their days in ATL.
3) Knapp is familiar with our personal on offense and can assume he'll create situations for them to succeed.
4) Knapp now has Palmer vs JaMarcus (enough said).
5) Is this a signal that the resigning of Bush becomes ever more important? I believe so.
6) Knapp has not been working at a bed & breakfast since his last time as OC.

Question yet to be answered is does this mean we go back to a zone blocking concept?

We can now only pray that 1. Coach Allen can get this defense to actually keep us in games now rather than lose them for us and 2. that Greg "sorry i was taking a" Knap has something to prove knowing he blew it the first time and is wanting to show he can run an offense. Really wish we could have just Kept Saunders and let him and Carson run the play calling to keep some stability. Oh well.....

Title: Confirmed: Raiders hire Greg Knapp OC
Post by: Randy on February 01, 2012, 02:15:37 AM
Something I ran across in this article.....although Knapp was with the Raiders for the entire '07 and '08 seasons, he only had play calling duties for about half a season. People remember that our play calling wasn't great for those two years, but that was mostly Kiffin's and Cable's play calling. Check out this quote from the article:

"Hired by Lane Kiffin by Oakland in 2007, Knapp did not call plays with the Raiders until Kiffin was fired four games into his second season, and later in the season was replaced by head coach Tom Cable as the play-caller as the Oakland offense struggled with JaMarcus Russell at quarterback."

Post by: RAIDER MIKE on February 01, 2012, 02:54:16 AM
Something I ran across in this article.....although Knapp was with the Raiders for the entire '07 and '08 seasons, he only had play calling duties for about half a season. People remember that our play calling wasn't great for those two years, but that was mostly Kiffin's and Cable's play calling. Check out this quote from the article:

"Hired by Lane Kiffin by Oakland in 2007, Knapp did not call plays with the Raiders until Kiffin was fired four games into his second season, and later in the season was replaced by head coach Tom Cable as the play-caller as the Oakland offense struggled with JaMarcus Russell at quarterback."


http://www.mercurynews.com/raiders/ci_19859146

But what did he do AFTER he left Oakland? Bounced around the league for 4 years! What did he achieve nothing!  In Houston they have the best WR Andre Johnson and RB Adrian Foster! Plus a elite Defense and still didn't do win shit!  I don't like any of these hires but if I choose to watch my team I'll be forced to accept these clowns and watch them fail again....I hope I'm dead wrong!

GOT TO AGREE WITH YA MIKE..... BAD HIRE IN MY EYES..... GREG "TAKE A DIRT" KNAPP...... ALL I CAN THINK OF IS THE SEASONS OF 07 AND 08...... EASY TO FORGET BECAUSE OUR OFFENSE "SUCKED" HUGE..... THIS ONE IS A QUESTION..... I FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE THAT KNAPP IS THE BEST OC WE COULD FIND OUT OF ALL 32 TEAMS AND their ASSISTANTS...... I WILL BE WATCHING VERY CLOSELY TO THE DC..... THIS WILL TELL US ALL WHERE WE ARE GOING..... SO FAR IT'S LOOKING LIKE IT'S BACKWARDS...... AND THINGS WERE LOOKING SO GOOD UNTIL THIS..... UGGGGGGGGGGG
Title: Re: Knapp
Post by: Matty Raider on February 01, 2012, 12:56:00 PM
OK, since this is a done deal and complaining won't do anything, I'll  offer some positives as well.  Knapp's previous term with the Raiders is no measure of his capabilities. When Knapp was here he had a bad team and awful QBing - JaWalrus, McCown, Andrew Walter, Culpepper.

For what it's worth, there were plenty of times in 2011 when Jackson's playcalling was unimaginative and ineffective. So I'm not sure what Jackson, Saunders, etc, bring to the table that Knapp can't.

When he was here, the leading receiver was freakin' Johnnie Lee Higgins.  Face it, we had bad personnel.  But, we averaged over 100 yards a game rushing - and that was with primarily Fargas (loved that guy). 

What I am saying is, in an Al Davis run team, the OC is merely an assistant - the HEAD COACH calls the plays - Cable did it as well as Hue.  The OC simply suggests plays and the HC chooses them.  I am hoping that that Knapp will have the freedom to call his own plays within the scheme of what the HC wants - an explosive offense that relies primarily on running the football.

I'm not bitching to prove I'm right or wrong...I'm bitching cause like everyone has said.... We finally get the freedom for the first time in 50 years! ...to be able to hire and fire anyone they want freely! And this is the guy they choose? It's like having a choice to buy any car in the world you want...and you choose a fucking ford pinto! I mean real teams with buying power and realistic championship aspirations would get proven guys that make sense....that's why the minute we hired Allen I knew what direction were heading....it's not rebuilding its simply a RM experiment   Like he said in his presser...."were measured by wins and losses....if we win it was a good hire....if we lose not so good" really? No fucking shit! To me I would of said from the beginning of being hired as GM that every move will be intended to win now! Not we will Championships.... someday! So Gregg put to a Knapp is going to win Championships long term?.... Really?.... WTF has he done that would scream success? Let me you tell you the real reason why they hired Gregg Knapp....He's the only guy who will sit down and shut up and not try and take over the team, face it Allen cant hire elite coordinators now cause they would be older more experience and he would lose the teams respect if a coordinator has more pull then him! This is the biggest concern with Allen....will he keep the team interested? I mean he's 39 and has done nothing!  These are on the AVG 25 year olds! We have a young team in a generation that is very selfish.... Being a dictator/discipline coach at this stage is gambling!  If we hired a proven HC he automatically demand respect....but a coach coming in after 5 of 6 in the last 6 years ....players know ....Not For Long!.... So why bother fighting for someone that they know is expendable in 2 years!  I do not like this pattern were going down...oh yeah in the presser for those who still think Allen won't build this team in Denver's image....listen to the presser Allen clearly says he's mentor and resource to lean on for football knowledge is DAN REEVES! For those who don't know who that is....he was the Denver Broncos HC that lead them to 3 SB loses in the 80's he's considered a Denver legend! .....And this is where our HC will run for answers?.... A guy who played us twice a year for over a decade! Dude hates the Raiders!  He equal to Marty Schottenheimer .....Sad road were going down RM better show off his player personell skills and get good players or I'll be watching them on my flat screen!

With you all the way on that. I mean from what we heard Allen is very smart so i cant see him making dumb blind desicions. He has to have some good reason why he is choosing this staff especially since he is choosing them so fast even with all the candidates out there. This staffs first judging from fans and critics will be based off of what they do and how hard they push in the draft and free agency. We need to see some good smart moves in keeping players (bush) and releasing some (barnes).

Sorry Hellraider but you're wrong buddy.

Taking that diss at Al Davis being a failure at a talent evaluator. Sure he has had his fair share of bad picks in the 1st round but rounds 2 thru 7 Al has always struck gold on his picks.

If you really think Reggie McKenzie is going to be some gifted scout your in for a big shock. Green Bay team sucks... The reason why they've been competitive is they've had 2 QB that will be heading to the hall of fame that have carried the franchise for the last 15 years.

37 year old Jason Tarver Named Raiders Defensive Coordinator

(http://www.raidernationpodcast.com/images/forum/JasonTarver.jpg)

and Greg...he's "cerebral" !

He's got a master's degree in biochemistry and molecular biology, but decided to become a coach rather than enter medical school. He'd even considered a career as an orthopedic surgeon, but chose football. Why? He was asked the question numerous times, by some of the greatest in the NFL , including the late Bill Walsh and San Francisco's former head coach, Steve Mariucci.

Last fall, the San Francisco Chronicle talked to him about his career, and Tarver discussed the parallel between football and molecular biology, remarking, "The process - making the complex seem simple so that you can execute it. In research, you apply the rules you know to reactions and try something new. It's the same thing when you teach a guy how to run a blitz. He may deal with something new, but as long as he starts the process correctly, then you deal with what happens."


Tarver added, " I really love the look on guys' faces when you help them make a play. It's almost better than doing it yourself. That's what really made me want to do this."

"Raiders staff is green in key areas"
Bill Williamson, ESPN

"If there is a criticism about the new-look Oakland Raiders, it's that they are inexperienced at key leadership spots.

The Raiders continued that trend Monday by naming Stanford co-defensive coordinator Jason Tarver as their defensive coordinator. Tarver is 37.

Tarver is considered a bright, young coach, and he is clearly highly intelligent. He has a degree in chemistry and earned his master's degree in biochemistry and molecular biology. He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

But the truth is, he is going from being a co-coordinator who didn’t call plays in the college game to being a defensive coordinator in the NFL...

I’m not saying this group will not succeed because of their inexperience. All of these men have great potential. But they are going to have to grow in their roles together."

Is there no-one here who thinks that a ground up rebuild with a group that can grow together has the potential to put this team back on top for a long time?

We've spent the last 9 years working to the Al Davis single season championship plan and for 9 years we have failed miserably.  All the comments I'm reading look like everyone is expecting the new guy to come in and win us a superbowl this year ???!!!? Did you all really think that was likely?

I wouldn't put your hopes on the play-offs this year or even next, but I would expect to see disciplin and consistency over the next couple of years. Building a team that that not only wins one championship and then fades away but becomes dominant.

I know we have all waited 9 years for change and we are all desperate to get back to winning but be patient and give these guys a chance.

For God's sake, let the man work and at least see what he has to offer before you start tearing him a new one!

Whats discipiline?

is that like where vetran players wake up one day. Go to training & are suddenly in awe & buy into a 6 foot 180 pound 40 yr old rookie head coach? Oh yeah because Dennis Allen demands respect.

sSorry for oozing sarcasm.. But This Raider team has seen a lot of Coaches & Co-Ordinators over the last 9 years & this is by far the greenest staff assembled (Green is todays buzz word for out of there depth)

Its going to be a long training camp & I'm sure the youth of Dennis Allen is going to rub a vetran the wrong way (Why? Because Dennis Allen is going to want to show who's boss)

This team can come flat out the gates & Dennis Allen will be the next Raheem Morris. Vetran players will shut this kid out if we lose & there's nothing he can do. We can only hope that we win & win early so the playing group buys into Dennis Allen.

So what happens when we go 5-11 or 6-10 next year you feel the same way? Knowing the squad you have now ...is easily a 8 win team maybe better! ...if u recall we did try rebuilding the right way already...makes me sick people forget that.... So you're telling me...that hiring Kiffin (Rookie: college coach) the youngest coach in NFL history and drafting a raw worthless QB (jbusto) with hopes and dreams he delivers a SB .....but turned out he delivered a pile of shit!... We drafted and rebuilt with a franchise RB in DMC ....drafted what Al was hoping was a franchise WR in DHB...these moves in no way shape or form fall into the category...of what Essex Raider is saying "that the last 9 years were built for 1 year championships" is bullshit and insulting after 7 straight 11 loss seasons (NFL Record) ... Now I'd say  the last 3 years we built adding on to what we thought would be a good team and arguably we could have won 10 games the last 2 seasons..........So to say sit down and shut up and wait 2 years...is over the top for this Raider fan.... We've rebuilt twice in the last 9 years now we're going for a 3rd?.... This time I will NOT give any slack in fact they better fucking show me something or I'll continue to publicly slam them! ....The days of the 3 year plan are over!... Look at teams like ARI, DET, CIN, or hell even BAL sucked then got Flacco and been a contender since, all teams that use to suck then in one or two years they contend! ....What I am saying is modern day teams gel much faster then the old days...good teams that is...coached well....we got a raw GM and HC that are in way over their heads and too Me if Allen can't win at least 8 games he doesn't make it to year 2 ....or it'll be a long 3 year stretch of moving backwards....or sideways...we were literally plays away from really moving forward and taking the next step....blowing up this team and starting over would be stupid!.... They should add on and tweak the roster a little and coach some games....maybe we can pick up right where we left off...but we won't probably cause were the Raiders.

Stoked to have Saunders back.

Still pissed that Knapp is our OC. i believe in people getting 2nd chances and Knapp is a run heavy OC.

What im really most pissed off about on Offense is the talk of us transitioning to the WCO. Granted the WCO worked out well for us once previously (Gruden era) I dont know how good its goinf to be this time around. We wont have the MVP QB (Gannon) throwing to the 2 greatest WR's in the history of the game (RICE & BROWN)... I understand its a dink and dunk offense. But Al Davis philosphy has always been the vertical game. McKenzie/Allen are spitting on Al Davis grave for even contemplating this idea.

Plus there is no greater specticle as a fan then watching a QB take his shots down field. get ready my friends for Carson Palmer to look like Alex Smith.. If we completely ignore the vertical game then I'm turning up Alamaeda with a ski mask & meat cleaver.

Saunders' knowledge key to Raiders offense
by Paul Gutierrez, CSN Bay Area

"...Knapp's West Coast offense sensibilities meshed a tad with Saunders' vertical-game acumen and knowledge of the roster?

It makes sense. A lot of sense, especially when you throw in the continuity factor.

Because remember, it was Saunders who actually devised each and every gameplan last season. Hue Jackson then used it like a menu, picking and choosing from it the actual plays to call on gameday. Plus, Saunders was the de facto quarterback coach. So he knows firsthand how much Carson Palmer could absorb in being flipped, so to speak, from a Darryl Lamonica mad bomber-type into a Rich Gannon accurate dink and dunker-type, and just where Terrelle Pryor is on the developmental scale.

Consider: Oakland was ninth in the NFL in total offense (379.5 yards per game), seventh in rushing offense (131.9), 11th in passing (247.6) and was tied for fifth in completions of 40 or more yards (14) and tied for seventh in rushing TDs (16).

Imagine what Saunders can do with an entire offseason "advising" Knapp and reported new QB coach John DeFilippo and new receivers coach Ted Gilmore on how to best use so many weapons...so many healthy weapons."

Raiders 2012 Defense: The Dennis Allen Effect
http://www.lockerpulse.com/News/Raiders-2012-Defense-The-Dennis-Allen-Effect-S2845066/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Oakland-Raiders

"If the one year turn around of Denver’s defense is any indication, the hiring of Allen could do wonders for the Raiders defense. In one year, Allen successfully converted Denver back to a base 4-3 defense. Despite the lockout shortened offseason, the Broncos defense improved from 32nd to 20th in total yards, 25th to 18th in passing yards, 31st to 22nd in rushing yards, and 32nd to 24th in scoring defense. Of course these numbers do not reflect an elite NFL defense, but let’s look at what else they had to overcome. Despite being the 6th ranked 3rd down defense in the NFL, with opponents only converting 34% of 3rd down opportunities, the Broncos defense was on the field for an average of 32:04 per game. That number makes for the 5th highest average in the NFL. Getting a chance to rest on the sideline is imperative in a defense’s success. The vast improvement of the Broncos’ defense in one season despite those stats, is impressive. Throw in the fact that the Denver offense had the most lost fumbles in the NFL (17), and the and 3rd lowest 3rd down conversion rate (31%), it is clear that Dennis Allen’s defense consistently found themselves with their backs against the wall. Despite all of that, they carried their team to an AFC West Title, and a trip to the playoffs."

Despite all the lore of the Raiders being a dirty team, Al wouldn't have paid bounties for taking out players. He expected you to take out players as part of your regular salary. Take out some big players and your next contract might be bigger, but there wouldn't be a specific bonus tied to taking someone out. Al was too smart re: the rules, and too much of a bad ass to expect his players to anything less than hit people as hard as they could.

So in that sense the fact that the Saints had to pay people extra to get them to hit Favre or Warner harder is kind of sad. Weren't their players already motivated enough?

The argument that upsets me is when raider fans say "But we can't keep firing coaches year after year"

That's all good and well in terms of Al Davis, but Reggie hired the wrong guy. When we have another 4-12 season next year and have to fire Dennis Allen next offseason then I'm sure be waiting with anticipation for everyone who anticipated stability.

The Dennis Allen/Reggie McKenzie regime is/was bound to be a train wreck because there is not one offensive mind in that partnership. Reggie needs to hire a Offensive guru.

Can't stress how unexcited I have been for a raiders team. I'm still gonna come to games and tailgate with the badboys of bbq but after my last trip abroad this november I'm not gonna expect a whole lot of effort and fight in this raider dog when they're being coached by a preschooler.

Well said.

Well, Millernation claims that DA is just keeping the HC seat warm until next year  :o

Word is that Andy Reid is going to KC.  The Raiders better think long and hard about this open OC position and hire WISELY.  I am not too worried about Andy Reid, a good coach but he is a soft coach.  This is not a 2000-2004 Eagles squad with McNabb, Westbrook, Owens, Kearse, etc.  However, I am worried if SD gets the likes of a Gruden (God no!) or similar.   The point is though is that the division is getting better, and we better stay competitive.

Allen is and was simply not ready to be a HC.  He should have stayed a DC for a while.  You know my feelings on this staff.  I drank the kool-aid last off-season and believed these clowns would right the ship.  They failed.  As far as I am concerned, if you are unsuccessful - you need to go. The only saving grace - bloated salaries, dead weight, unproductive players, etc.  Next year, Allen has no excuse.  EITHER DOES MCKENZIE.

We just have to wait and see.

One more year of Dennis Allen.  Until Reggie McKenzie gets the players he wants to win, he won't have a coach who can win.  Raiders will get #3 draft pick this year and probably another high pick next year.  If Allen wins with the current roster, it would be hard to dump him.  McKenzie is rebuilding.  Works out for Allen, he gets head coaching experience so he can be better prepared for his next gig.  Raiders don't pay much for a head coach while rebuilding and lets be honest.  What decent head coach would take the raider job with the recent history?  This is why Mora will be a great hire.  He wants back into the NFL but most teams won't give him a shot.  Look at the job he has done with the current UCLA quarterback.  He will be able to accommodate the gifts Pryor possesses or McKenzie doesn't know what the fuck he is doing

Post by: Matty Raider on January 14, 2013, 02:10:28 PM
....here's what I found so far in regards to some of ourt coaching/team vacancies.

Mike Martz interviewed for OC on Saturday, 1/12.

They interviewed Juan Castillo, long-time Eagles offensive line coach and less-than-two-year defensive coordinator on Saturday as well for the open O-Line coach.

This weekend, Mark Davis was speaking with Ray Anderson, VP of NFL operations about an executive job on the Raiders.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/01/13/report-raiders-talking-to-ray-anderson/

Bringing Anderson would be an excellent move, IMO.  Brings instant credibility to our front office. 

And this is pretty interesting - Raiders interviewed Marc Trestman for OC yesterday.  Trestman was here with Gruden as our OC and was our OC in our SB run in 2002.  Details here:

http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/nfl/254048/report-raiders-interviewing-trestman-for-oc

Trestman is VERY intruiging to me.  He offense is high powered. I remember watching our team and feeling they could score on anyone.  He has been coaching in the CFL, leading Montreal to back-to-back Grey Cups.  He was interviewed by Cleveland as well before they hired Norv Turner.

Also interviewed Greg Olson, Jaguars Asst HC and QB coach. 

http://www.bigcatcountry.com/2013/1/13/3873884/greg-olson-raiders-coaching-search-jaguars-news

For me personally, I want a high-octane OC that is MODERN - we have the weapons - DMC, Moore, Streater, DHB, Ford, Pryor.  We need someone in here who can put these pieces together. 

What are your thoughts?

Title: Greg Olson Bio
Post by: Randy on January 19, 2013, 10:22:43 PM
Greg Olson
BIOGRAPHY

Greg Olson was named assistant head coach/quarterbacks coach for the Jaguars on January 19, 2012. Olson has 25 years of coaching experience including 10 in the NFL and 15 at the collegiate level. His resume includes six seasons as an offensive coordinator in the NFL with Detroit (2005), St. Louis (2006-07) and Tampa Bay (2009-11).

Prior to joining the Jaguars Olson served four seasons with the Buccaneers including the last three as offensive coordinator. He spent the 2008 season as quarterbacks coach. Olson, 48, was responsible for the development of quarterback Josh Freeman, the 17th overall pick in the 2009 draft. Under Olson’s guidance Freeman threw for 8,898 yards and 51 touchdowns in his first three seasons as a starter. In 2011 Freeman ranked eighth in the NFL with a 62.8 completion percentage and 13th with 3,592 passing yards.

In Olson’s second season as offensive coordinator in 2010, Freeman ranked sixth in the NFL with a 95.9 passer rating while throwing for 3,451 yards, 25 touchdowns and only six interceptions, placing him ninth for touchdown-to-interception ratio in NFL single-season history. Olson helped guide the Buccaneers to one of their best offensive seasons in team history, setting franchise records for yards per play (5.61), average per rush (4.64 yards), average per pass play (7.21), passer rating (96.2) and fewest interceptions thrown (six). The Buccaneers also finished with the fourth-most points scored (341), third-most yards in total offense (5,362) and second-best third down percentage (42.2%) in a single season in team history.

The Buccaneers were the youngest team in the NFL in 2010 and wide receiver Mike Williams, a fourth-round draft pick, finished the year leading all rookie receivers in the league in every major receiving category while setting a single-season team record with 11 touchdown receptions. Running back LeGarrette Blount’s 1,007 rushing yards led all rookie running backs and he became just the second undrafted rookie running back in NFL history to finish with over 1,000 yards. It marked the first time since 1968 that a team had two different players lead all rookies in rushing and receiving yards.

Despite his late elevation to the coordinator position in 2009, Olson’s offense showed consistent growth around Freeman. The offense recorded three games of 400-plus yards of total offense, including 469 yards at Carolina for the fifth-best single-game performance in team history and the most by the team in over 20 years. Working closely with Olson, Freeman led all rookie quarterbacks in completion percentage (54.5) while setting Buccaneer rookie records for touchdown passes (10) and passing yards (1,855) despite starting in just nine games. He also threw the most touchdown passes by a rookie in a single game in team history as he became the second-youngest quarterback to win his first career start since 1970 with a 38-28 come-from-behind win over Green Bay in Week 9.

Kellen Winslow had the best season by a tight end in team history in 2009 as he led or tied for the team lead in receptions in 12 of the 16 games, and also led the team in receiving yards eight times. He led the team in receptions (77) and receiving yards (884), both good for single-season franchise records among tight ends. Winslow also led the team with five receiving touchdowns, tied for the fourth-most in a single season among Buccaneer tight ends.

In his first season in Tampa Bay in 2008, Olson was part of an offense that ranked 14th in the NFL and ninth in the NFC in total offense. In addition, the Buccaneers featured the 11th-ranked passing offense in the NFL as Tampa Bay signal callers passed for 3,788 yards. It marked the second-highest passing yardage total in team history while the 63.2 completion percentage ranked third in team history and the 83.8 passer rating by Olson’s unit was the fourth-best in team annals. The Buccaneers offense finished the season amassing 5,456 total yards, the highest total in team history, while scoring 361 points, the second-highest total in team annals. Under Olson’s tutelage, Jeff Garcia tied for second in the NFL for fewest interceptions (six), was ninth in the league and third in the NFC in completion percentage (64.9) and ninth in the NFL and fifth in the NFC in quarterback rating (90.2).

Prior to joining Tampa Bay Olson spent two seasons (2006-07) as offensive coordinator for the St. Louis Rams. In his first year with the Rams in 2006 he helped guide a high-powered offense that ranked sixth in the NFL in total offense (360.4 yards per game) and a passing offense that ranked third (247.6) in the NFC.

Under Olson’s direction, the 2006 Rams became just the fourth team in NFL history to produce a 4,000-yard passer (Marc Bulger), a 1,500-yard rusher (Steven Jackson) and two 1,000-yard receivers (Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce). Bulger, Jackson and Holt were all selected to the Pro Bowl. Bulger also posted career-highs in passing yards (4,301), passing touchdowns (24) and passing attempts (588) and completions (370) while ranking second in the NFL in interception percentage (1.4%). Jackson also had a career-year in 2006, leading the NFL in yards from scrimmage with 2,334, and he led all NFL running backs with 90 receptions and was fifth in the NFL in rushing yards with 1,528.

Prior to his time with the Rams, Olson spent one season as quarterbacks coach (2004) and one season as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach (2005) for the Detroit Lions. In 2004 Olson took over play-calling duties for the Lions with three games remaining in the season and the Lions offense went on to average 403.6 total yards per game. In 2005 Olson was named offensive coordinator of the Lions in Week 11.

Olson entered the NFL as quarterbacks coach for the San Francisco 49ers in 2001 under head coach Steve Mariucci. In 2001 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia threw for a career-high 32 touchdown passes while posting a career-best 94.8 passer rating and 62.7 completion percentage. Following one season as tight ends/recruiting coordinator at Purdue, Olson spent one season as quarterbacks coach for the Chicago Bears in 2003.

From 1997-2000, as quarterbacks coach at Purdue, Olson played a key role in the development of Pro Bowl and Super Bowl-winning quarterback Drew Brees. Under Olson, Brees was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 1999 and 2000 while winning the Maxwell Award as the nation’s most outstanding player in 2000. He was also a finalist for the Davey O’Brien Award as the nation’s top quarterback in 1999 and 2000. Brees finished his collegiate career as the Big Ten and Purdue’s all-time leader in passing yardage (11,792), touchdown passes (90), total yards (12,693), comple­tion percentage (61.1%), completions (1,026) and attempts (1,678). He also ranked fourth in NCAA Division I-A history for total offense, completions and attempts upon his departure from Purdue. Under Olson, Brees had seven 400-yard passing games and 16 300-yard passing games. Brees earned Big Ten player of Year honors in 1998 and 2000 and All-Conference accolades for three straight years (1998-2000).

Olson began his coaching career in 1987 as a graduate assistant under the tutelage of head coaches Dennis Erickson (1987-88) and Mike Price (1989) at Washington State, where he earned his master’s degree in athletic administration. He spent four seasons (1990-93) as an assistant at Central Washington University and two seasons at Idaho (1994-96). At Central Washington Olson developed quarterback Jon Kitna, who went on to become an NFL starter at Seattle, Cincinnati and Detroit. Olson also served as wrestling coach for four seasons at Central Washington including the last two as head coach.

A native of Richland, Washington, Olson played quarterback at Spokane Falls Junior College from 1981-82 and at Central Washington from 1983-84, earning his bachelor’s degree in education. He and his wife, Lissa, have twins, Kenneth and Grayce. Lissa was the first female to be named head coach of a Division I track and field men’s track team when she took over at Purdue in March of 2001. She spent 2011 as an assistant track coach at the University of South Florida.

COACHING BACKGROUND: Washington State 1987-89, Central Washington 1990-93, Idaho 1994-96, Purdue 1997-2000, 2002, San Francisco 49ers 2001, Chicago Bears 2003, Detroit Lions 2004-05, St. Louis Rams 2006-07, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2008-11, Jacksonville Jaguars 2012.

Supposedly the Raiders turned down an offer to coach the senior bowl.

If you are able to connect the dots I'd guess that it could have to do with no firm decision made on whether the coach will be back year 3.

Please Fire Dennis, Mark. He is garbage.
