By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Friday, January 22nd, 2010 at 6:38 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The following press release was issued tonight by the Raiders:

The Oakland Raiders are pleased to announce that Mike Waufle will rejoin the Raiders as the Defensive Line Coach. Mike has an outstanding record of success as a defensive line coach and has participated in Super Bowls with the Raiders and Giants. New York’s Super Bowl victory over New England featured dominating defensive line play. Mike is thrilled with the opportunity to rejoin the Raiders. He and Coach Cable spent six years together at the University of California where they enjoyed working together.

So while they’ve yet to make it clear whether Cable will be the head coach, they at least brought him some company until Al Davis makes up his mind.

    yep . 2nd round raiders get Brandon Graham, DE, Michigan
    . 3rd round raiders get Sergio Kindle, LB, Texas

  • buckeyeraider

    Oh well, Bob must’ve really boogied. Back to football. Put me in the draft Mclain in the first round camp. I like Capt. Kirk, just not in the middle. We need a thumper in there. Wanted Rey M. last year. Was impressed with what I sawe from Rolando Mclain. He looked instinctive in nat’l champ. game. Sniffed out a screen, and seemed to tackle with some pop. I don’t know what he’s listed at, but he looked big; thick in the lower body like he could take on some blocks, and clog some running lanes.

  • SATANFEARS ALDAVIS

    if graham is gone raidetrs draft Navarro Bowman, OLB, PSU

  • buckeyeraider

    That’s cool Bob. Seen Sabbath in various forms, Dio,Ian Gillen, Ozzy reunion, Aerosmith, Megadeth.Never seen UFO live. They were just in town about a month ago, at a little bar called Mcguffey’s house of draft. Wife even had a babysitter lined up. Didn’t go. Kinda kicken myself in the azz. Their live ’79 album Strangers in the night is one of my all time faves.If I ever make my own personal pilgrimage to Mecca..the Oakland Alameda county coliseum, your tailgates sound like a helluva good time. Later Bob.

    Jimmy Clausen is overrated. Much like Brady Quinn was coming out of ND. Career backup at best. He is not as good as Quinn was under the same offense, and Quinn is only slightly better than BRL.

    So its official now. Cable is back lol

  • buckeyeraider

    I’m not sure which should be priority one and one-A. Fixing the offensive line, or the run defense. They both need addressed. Hopefully Al has all his tinkertoys at the skill positions now, and he can turn his attention in this draft/free agency to where games are won and lost, controlling the line of scrimmage. Mclain, or a top flight right tackle. Eight seems to high for Cody. A young DT is definitely needed to add to the rotation though.

    Hey, its Brian the Genital! Great to see you back on the blog, lil buddy!

    Did you hear the hot news eating up the blogosphere? Your grandfather KrappyKell will be performing a nude kayaking exhibition at the Baja Bro Down 3000 Summer Blowout coming this Summer!

    I’ve gotten word that he’ll be needing you, Brian the Genital – his dear grandson – to douse his body with tropical oils to protect his skin against the salty sea water prior to the event.

    So it won’t just be cold brews and plenty of Sinaloa marching powder for you, you silly little fool!

    Now you’ve got an important role in Krappy’s big kayak spectacle! Congrats!

    No Cody=10 plus losses in 2010

    check it out, dudes (and Brian the Genital) -

    After weeks of speculation and deliberation, Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis has decided to retain Tom Cable as head coach for the 2010 season, a source close to the situation told ESPN on Saturday.

    Cable will fulfill the final year of his contract with the Raiders, the source said.

    When contacted, Raiders spokesman John Herrera did not confirm that Cable would remain coach for the 2010 season, saying only that, despite meetings into the night the past two days, no decision has been reached.

    Cable had one year remaining on his contract. But after meeting with Cable again this week, Davis made a decision that will be popular among players by keeping his head coach in place, the source said.

    Cable had widespread support throughout the players in the Raiders locker room.

    But his return does not mean changes will not be made. Oakland will tinker with its assistant coaches, it did so Friday when it brought back defensive line coach Mike Waufle.

    Cable’s return continues what has been an offseaon of stability for head coaches. Many thought Cleveland could dismiss Eric Mangini, Jacksonville could dismiss Jack Del Rio, Dallas could dismiss Wade Phillips and Oakland could dismiss Cable.

    Part of this is due to the financial uncertainty surrounding 2011, a year in which players said they are preparing to be locked out. With so much uncertainty, NFL owners are opting for stability with their coaches.

    yawwwwwwwwwnnnnnnnnn Beecher…..post 410 already beat ya to it b*tch

  • Senior Beeecham

    Brian, i know its “awful” that you won’t be able to snort marching powder the whole trip, but you do owe it to your family to help out your grandfather with his special performance.

    You know his arthritis prohibits him from being able to get lotion into many of his body’s skin folds.

    Granted, its not the most glamorous of jobs, Brian, but think of the alternative – if his skin chaffs from the salt water, you’ll have to moisturize him 3 times a day for a week with extra virgin olive oil.

    So get ready for the Baja madness, Brian – and doing your part for your wacky old family!

  • The Return of Godliness

    LOL Beecher i notice you get very descriptive about Kell’s body……..very suspect

  • Raiders4eve

    Here is my mock draft based on Davis preferences:

    1st Campbell fastest LT in this draft
    2nd Arenas Best Return Man in this draft and CB tackler
    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/300163-havy-you-seen-him-a-javier-arenas-accolade#page/3
    3a D’Anthony Smith DT running 4.9 at this round AL takes him
    3b Micah Johnson MLB yes he drops all the way cause of his injury just like M Bush.
    4th Jay Ross DT Huge body can play 4-3 n 3-4 runs 5.3 while weighting over 314 lbs and 6’3 height.
    5th Mitch Petrus OG this dude open lanes for DMAC and runs 5.09 can and help resurrect DMAC career.
    No 6th
    7th round who cares he will get cut unless we get another Schillens.
