Raiders make Waufle hiring official

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.

    Keep rooting for the 49ers RMR. But, I enjoy your thoughts on the Raiders board. Have a great day.

    Do you guys think J Campbell will be allied to enter FA?

  • Ghost to the Post

    Actually we were discussing owners and I gave the 49ers credit for hiring Singletary. Yorks still 0 super bowls.

    DK,

    With Seymour playing inside next to a fat DT like T Cody and a Base End like Matt, I think Scott can be a solid RDE. He needs to add 10 pounds. Put him on the Alston program.

    MR,

    I’m going with the Saints tomorrow, based entirely on your Madden simulation yesterday. Figure I can’t do worse than what I’ve been doing.

    It will be my only play tomorrow.

    ^^^^^^^^
    I disagree. Putting Scott as a full time down RDE is would be a waste. If they want a full time RDE, they should draft one this year in Round 2 or with one of the two 3rd round picks. If they can get Morgan with that #8 pick….they should consider taking him to be the staring full time RDE.

    Scott as maxed out when it comes to weight gain and mass IMO. A starting full time RDE in the Raiders defense needs to weigh 270 pounds or more and be fast, explosive and powerful.

  • http://atm Raider O

    DK,

    I agree.

    1- RDE D Morgan
    2- DT T Cody, DT Jared Odrick, or OT Trent Williams
    3- OT Sam Young, or DT Mike Neal
    3- ILB Micah Johnson
    4- OG

    I like it!

    The longer things go without a leak by Jackson’s people concerning the coach staying with the Ravens, the more I believe he HAS been hired by Davis.

    The Raiders will stay quiet until the details of the contract are worked out.

    Davis could also use the Jackson interview as a way to meet the requirements of the Rooney Rule should he fire Cable and go another direction.

    I wish Davis would hold out and seek permission to interview Carmichael Jr, the OC of the Saints. Of course, I don’t think the Raiders have a QB capable of running the precision passing offense of the Saints.

    -D Morgan: 6’4 270 runs a 4.7
    -E Griffin: 6’3 275 runs 4.7

    -Greg Hardy: 6’4 270 runs 4.7

    Top 2 are 1st RD Talent, and the other 2 will be drafted in the 2nd.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    Dunlap or Hardy would be good 2nd Round picks IMO.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    If the team passes on McClain with that #8 pick…..then MIKE ILB Micah Johnson would be an excellent pick with that first 3rd round selection.

    His stock may will fall due to his knee injury in the Kentuckys Bowl game and he may not be able to go at the combine, but may be able to work at his Pro Day or do private workouts before the draft.

  • DKnight007

    Cable is gonna stay IF they can’t get Harbaugh IMO.

    They may wait to make an aggressive offer to Harbaugh by Feb 2nd…..so Harbaugh won’t lose recruits.

  • http://blstb.msn.com/i/55/90A2853B6CFBCC2AFC987BB18B832.jpg vegas raider

    I would love a LB in the first round, and McClain would be very solid. I heard Clayton say last week that he is a typical Bill Parcells pick and if he is there when the Dolphins pick (like #11 or so) he would be suprised if they didn’t take him.

    I don’t ever see anyone talk about Daryl Washington of TCU. I’ve seen him as the 4th rated LB, and is very fast. Al may take him in the second if we don’t go that route in the first.

  • http://blstb.msn.com/i/55/90A2853B6CFBCC2AFC987BB18B832.jpg vegas raider

    He is a little light, but he can fly and makes plays. He needs to add some weight, but if he runs a 4.55 forty, Al may take him in the 2nd or 3rd round.

    I would much rather have McClain, just suprised he isn’t on many of your draft radars. With that speed, I guarantee he is on Al’s.

    Maybe you can corner Cable in an elevator next week in ATL., at the senior bowl. (like you did with Lance.) And ask him point blank, does he still have the gig?

    Remember to duck, just in case….lol..

  • Zymurge

    RMR — what exactly has Singletary done that makes him amongst the best? Does he have to win despite an owner/GM that picks his talent, starters, and schemes? I don’t think so.

    Good coach find ways to make their teams better than the sum of the parts and to sometimes beat teams better than they are. Cable managed to do that with the Raiders. Singletary failed to do that with the Whiners.

    Singletary doesn’t bring anything of note to the table in terms of superior schemes, half time adjustments (in fact, his team lost several leads) or even decent clock management and timeout preservation. His whole claim to fame is the so-called smash mouth culture that he brings to the team based on his playing past but that the team has yet to personify.

    My point is that any mediocre coach could take that team with the current set of personnel and schedule and play them to a .500 record. On the contrary, were Singletary coaching the Raiders, I doubt that he’d do any better than 5-11, and possibly worse. If anything, Cable should be lauded for what he was able to accomplish with one and a half hands tied behind his back.

    Haha wow just got dont watching the east west shrine game and Marty Chokenheimer as usual plays Marty ball in a fukin college all star game not even really giving his WRs a chance. He screwed my boy Seyi Arijotutu over

  • The Return of Godliness

    what good is mccalin to us when the DTs still suck?
    Naw Cody is the only player that can change the defense overnight. Team run defense would still suck with McCalin…….sorry guys

    It was a damn joke. My boy Seyi Ajirotutu is vastly underrated and wants his chance to shine and Marty power runs it all damn game. I hate Marty so much that is why he a loser and always will be

  • Scottish Raider

    We have to rebuild the Oline – just no choice. I would use the first three picks on 3 Oliners:

    1st Round: Bruce Campbell OT Maryland – big enough to have real power, athletic enough to play zone.

    2nd Round: Jon Asamoah OG Illinois – should replace Carlisle at RG. Probably the best Guard in the draft.

    3rd Round: John Estes OC Hawaii – smart, mean and very strong. Satele and Morris are just not good enough.

    Once these three are secure, then we can go looking for value:

    3rd Round: Toby Gerhart RB Stanford – TG will fall this far because he isn’t a flashy gamebreaker but his strength and stamina are perfect for the Raiders. Fargas is gone – nothing in the tank. Gerhart is a warrior who will get the hard yards.

    Round 4: Pat Angerer ILB Iowa – Probably better value than McClain, Angerer is a genuine ILB and would anchor the middle of the Raiders defence.

    Sadly, all this logic is wasted on Al. If Jow Haden is still on the Board at No8, Davis couldn’t resist.

    Trade DMAC for Seyi Ajirotutu!

  • The Return of Godliness

    Nope keep DMAC……tell your loverboy Cable to actually use him and Bush correctly

  • The Return of Godliness

    I love how Scottish just flatly ignores the need for a space eater on the dline lol

  • Thec07

    That should be easy, as cable wont be calling plays…

  • The Return of Godliness

    Cable calling plays lol….since when were those plays?

  • The Return of Godliness

    Thec it was a damn shame that bush and dmac didnt get 35 plus carries combined a game this year. Cable being a puppet of Al’s totally ignored what would keep the defense from getting tired

  • Thec07

    Yeah, reminds me of playing sand lot….
    You go 10 and out, you go 10 and in….
    You run to the tree…

  • The Return of Godliness

    Hopefully Farglass doesnt come back. He is 30 and isnt getting any better. Please cut this guy and find a small shifty scatback that can compliment the RB unit

  • The Return of Godliness

    It was awful but with Russell playing next year i expect 6-10 at the max. Still garbage

  • Thec07

    Yeah, thats why your right we need to build the Dline first,
    then Oline. 2010 should be the end of runnubg in oakland.

    Youg lion, what is the word ob the street about BRL???

    BJS, yawwwwwwwwnnnnnnnnnnnn im the god of this room and you are beneath me. DMAC is cool for 15 carries a game while Bush gets 20. The Raiders are a much better team especially when they have an actual QB leading them

    Ignorant? Obviously you dont notice how the NFL splits carries with Running backs. That is the trend in the NFL Bo. Maybe you need to catch up. DMAC didnt turn the ball over since way early inthe season…….as usual you are reaching talking a bunch of BS

  • Thec07

    You need to use DMAC like NO uses reggie bush. DMAC is reggie bush with a little less swivel…. DMAC KR, PR, WR, Slot guy, RB on occasion, he is a swiss army knife and should be used as such…. thats why we need a real OCO
