    I'm guessing that we should read that as "running some no-huddle offense". I don't think we're going to run it all of the time. At least I hope that we don't. in any case, we need to greatly improve...

    If it is VanGorder, he was DC for Smith in Atlanta, and he worked at Georgia and is currently at Notre Dame. I wouldn't consider him a "college guy" per se. Hey, we'd all prefer a DC who has the...

    While Smith would be a nice hire, it seems like all of the DC choices we are linked to are solid. Now it's up to Reg to continue the roster upgrade. Time for everyone in the front office to grab an...

    If he's coming to interview, you just got to figure he gets the job. The only thing that could go wrong is the money. Done deal?

    So Gase is still available? It seems like he's had a lot of interviews. I think only the JAX OC position is still available. How the mighty have fallen....

    Actually, I don't have to "face it", in what reality does a more experienced Allen or Tarver = Del Rio or Mangini? JDR worked for Rex in Baltimore & Mangini worked with Belinchek. How does that...

    Fits with the JDR program: we will be tough/physical on offense and defense. Tice wasn't brought in to coach a line where we throw 40 passes per game. Musgrave will use the run game to help Carr. The...

    I think that toughness is going to be a recurring theme in the coaching staff. Teams always say "we're going to be physical", the difference is that our coaches will demand it. Another step in the...

    I think the Raider Team President will not be working with the football operations side of the organization. He will be working on the financial side - stadium deal and the like. Unless another gets...

    Wow, it didn't take long for the happy pill to wear off. I don't understand why some get so attached to a name or two. Are you certain that the only good DC's are Fangio, Smith or Schwartz, or are...

    I hear exactly what you're saying...the "Mad Professor" of defensive schemes...who is really only a defensive position coach in disguise. We will likely be trading in our position coaches...

    We are talking about hiring a DC like Smith or Fangio, not scraping the bottom of the barrel for leftovers?!? This has either been a GREAT day or I am dreaming. :)

    Great news, welcome Coach Del Rio! Now let's get to work. Mike Smith on line 1.....
  15. Sticky: Totally agree on Howard playing OT, he was lost...

    Totally agree on Howard playing OT, he was lost as a RG. As far as Watson moving inside, I doubt that he would fare any better than Howard. And from what I'm reading, I don't expect Wiz back. He has...

    If that is true, they can order the nameplate for Coach Del Rio's office. It's a done deal, assuming the $'s are agreeable.
  17. I'm glad to see that I am not the only one who...

    I'm glad to see that I am not the only one who thinks any offense we have should include WCO elements. Carr showed good decision making and a quick release, he would fit well in a WCO type of scheme.

    Works for me. Anything but the status quo. As we've all said, the coordinators will be the key.
  19. And we're certain that this report is accurate...

    And we're certain that this report is accurate because? I still think that if the Broncos win today, we're going to see Pep get a 2nd interview. Time will tell.
  20. Agreed. I'm hoping for no news until next week,...

    Agreed. I'm hoping for no news until next week, even though it sucks to wait.

    Best case scenarios (IMHO):

    1. The Shannahans + a veteran DC like Phillips
    2. JDR + a veteran OC like Mornihweg...
  21. It may just be me dreaming, but maybe Pep would...

    It may just be me dreaming, but maybe Pep would want Tarver becuase they worked together at Stanford? IDK, I'm just trying to rationalize any reason why it wouldn't be Sparano.
  22. So how long do we have to wait to find out if...

    So how long do we have to wait to find out if Sparano is the choice? Wouldn't they announce by tomorrow if that was the case? If tomorrow comes and goes without a HC announcement, can I have hope...

    Bowles got some looks last year and no one hired him. I read an article that described Bowles as difficult to read. Maybe that comes across in an interview as lacking passion or conviction. I have...

    There's so much speculation going on around this search, it's hard to know truth from smoke. There have been a couple of themes: 1) Mark said early on he wanted an experienced coach and 2) We have...

    I have no idea who is going to be hired, but I can say that I have enjoyed this coaching search more than any of the others before. Between the "under the radar" moves and the impression that the job...
