ESPN: Pendergast will coach Raiders DBs

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Saturday, February 6th, 2010 at 5:23 pm in Oakland Raiders.

ESPN is reporting that deposed Kansas City defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast will coach the Raiders’ defensive backs in 2010.

Pendergast could either replace incumbent secondary coach Lionel Washington, who is still under contract, or join Washington on staff. Willie Brown, who assists in the secondary and is in charge of “squad development,” told Comcast SportsNet he was retiring.

    The Raiders did do Walter wrong though. They KNEW he wasn’t in their plans…drafted JaDavis, brought in Culpepper, McCown, Gradkowski, Frye and Garcia and insisted on keeping him on the roster even as he asked for a release.

    Kept him on the roster through OTAs and cut him the day before training camp started.

    That’s pretty tough. But then again, the Raiders paid him to do nothing

    Come this august, when russell is released,..not one nfl team will pick him up.

    ==========================

    He won’t be but if they did, someone else would. Of course it would be with new contractual terms…but he would find NFL work and someone would give him a shot.

  • Norco Bob

    No team will pick him up…period. Word.

  • Kirk

    The Raiders pay a lot of people to do nothing.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Oh, after Brees and Manning sign their contracts…Nnamdi’s contract goes up, remember, he gets the average of the top 5 QBs…Peyton and Drew are going to command $20 to $25 million per year…..good lawd……

    yeah walter must love how professional the pats were when they released his azz!! some people have brought up signing marshal yanda from the ravens. i hope hue jackson can get in his ear cuz that could be a good pickup. we definately need a wr coach in the worst way.

    =======================

    Astute!

    Granted, we drafted and had the majority of our wides needing polish and to put Lal at WR coach was a HUGE error.
    The poor guy had ZERO experience as a lead coach of anything let alone WRs.
    Stupid move Al.
    Fix the line to please…

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Norco,

    Its all up to Al Davis. He makes all the decisions.

    If he still like JaDavis….JaDavis plays.

    Here’s another question. Which player on the field today will be a Raider start 2010?

    ——————————————————-

    LMFAO!

  • Norco Bob

    Yes its up to Davis,..and Davis is done with russell,…Gradkowski starts opening night, on MNF,..at SF. Word.

  • jhill

    Why Mike Vick?

    Seriously!?!

    Why not Troy Smith or even Bruce Gradkowski?

    I was saying if Mike Vick can get a job after what he did, surely Russell could find a spot on someones bench for a second shot…

    lol…damn dude..get off his sac.
    You cried and CRIED when he got benched..threw a little hissy fit..a tantrum any 3 year old would have been proud of..called Cable every name in the book because he dared to bench your “hero”.

    I’ll bet you a thousand…RIGHT NOW…that if JR is released, that not ONE TEAM WILL PICK HIM UP.

    What? You think the rest of the league isn’t aware that JR is the worst starting qb IN THE LEAGUE, IN BACK TO BACK YEARS? You think they don’t know his footwork sucks? His devotion nonexistent? His touch no where to be found? His pocket awareness gone with the wind? His comments that throw fellow players under the bus being a cancer? His admitting he comes in fat, lazy, and uncommitted? Him admitting he’s late for meetings, but that the fines don’t bother him? His idiot PR disasters of him showing up everywhere wearing minks and millions in diamonds, including a diamond encrusted necklace saying “THE CHOSEN ONE’??

    He’s a walking freaking disaster…AND NO TEAM WILL EVER WANT TO EVEN CONSIDER THE NIGHTMARE OF HIM COMING OFF THE BENCH.

    STFU moron, your are the resident whipping boy of this blog with ZERO credibility. So just keep your nonsense to your self dik sucker.

  • Seymour Bush

    We are not going to cut Russell for the next two years that I can guarantee you. One thing I will bet is, it is going to be a more open competition for the starting Q job here. Russell was handed the job, and justifiably so, but he didn’t EARN the job. Cable is going to make him earn the job. And not because he Cable wants him to earn it, Cable is sending a message to his team that the days of scholarship is over. And that can only be a good thing.

  • Norco Bob

    Thanks for that guarantee seymour…that makes all the difference.

    tim brown was taken for granted in oakland. most of u fools embraced jerry rice cuz he played for your 2nd favorite team before.
    ***************
    Jery Rice was picked over Tim Brown simply because he was a far superior receiver. If you ant to P&M about a raider WR not being elected to the HOF, get upset about Cliff Branch. Brown couldn’t carry Branch’s jock strap.

  • No Lo

    Tim Brown is not a first ballot HOF. He was a great Raider but not one of the greatest wide receivers. He put up great stats on bad/medicore teams but for the 3 year run with Gruden and a couple of playoff appearnces in LA.
    When Rice came to the Raiders it was obvious to me he was jealous. He was no longer the first option. In fact, he was the third option behind Rice and Charlie Garner. Check out his SB stats v. the Bucs. 2 catches for less than 20 yards. Who were the first 2 options: Rice and Porter. I recall during the 3 year run he was whining about not getting the ball. They’re playing the Chiefs and Gannon caves in and completes something like 13 passes. Raiders lose to Chiefs. So much for team first.
    Get over it. He is not the greatest wide receiver in Raiders history. He wasn’t better than Freddie B, Branch or Rice. In fact, Warren Wells was more dangerous in his short stay. In addition, I’m missing another Raider great from the 60s-was it Art Powell. Stabler, Guy, Plunkett, Wiz, to name a few, deserve to be there before Timmy.
    Get real.

  • Seymour Bush

    Sorry norco, just the facts. Of course that changes if Russell goes even DEEPER off the edge than he did last year, which I don’t think is going to happen. His receiving corp is going to be more solid, the same offensive system is going to be in place, altho Russell will have his 4th or 5th different play caller in his lst 25 starts. Peyton Manning has had one playcaller in his lst 200 starts. Think THAT makes a difference?

  • Seymour Bush

    I have to agree with you guys on Tim Brown. While I really liked Brown he was not the player Freddy B or Cliff were.

  • Norco Bob

    Russell being cut in Napa,..get over it. Damn this Hennessy is good,..thanks brian!

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    JaDavis will probably come into camp in shape.

    My guess is that he will spend a little more time on the playbook this year than he did last year

    He will probably attend more (not all) of the OTAs

    He migh spend some time in the filmroom too…maybe

    Point being, all he has to do is the basics and good ole Al Davis is going to give him the job.

    There will be no real QB competition in Oakland….too much pride on the line for Mr. Davis

  • Norco Bob

    thats your wet dream snb,..Im into reality,..that fat slob dump truck is gone.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Watching the SB will always be frustrating. They talk about how hard Brees and Manning work at their craft…then we look in Oakland….and Al Davis doesn’t even value things like hard work and chemistry.

    Come on JaDAvis….I hope he watches this game and lays off the salty snacks

    I told you, stupid little boy..stick to the sand box.
    Come back when you see the tiniest indication pube one is coming.

    No, I have just resigned to the fact that Al Davis makes all the decisions and won’t change. Our only hope is that JaDavis gets it. He’s playing the first 6 games whether you or I like it or not

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco and Mark Sanchez’s coaches and teammates rave about the leadership and hard work they put into their games.

    Meanwhile, JaDavis, after his 3rd freekn year, has to go back to the Combine Training Center just to get in shape.

    Al Davis created an atmosphere that would tolerate such nonsense. And Davis will force JaDavis into the lineup whether he earns it or not

    I cannot remember. What NFL team was it that excitedly snatched Garcia up last year when he asked for his release from the Raiders? Then what happened? Don’t remember seeing him play, mentor, or anything……….

    YOU DUMBASS…HE’S OUT OF WORK. HE’S BEEN FIRED. This year..AND last year.

    If he was good he WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN SITTING AROUND IN FEBRUARY, LOOKING FOR WORK, you mental midget.

    I told you, Oakglen…you’re an easy target…always were…always will be.
    ==========================================

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Once again this moron troll proves he is the bottom of the barrel. Tony Dungy got fired. Chuck Knox got fired. Mike Shanahan got fired. AND NO, he has not been out of football last year, WRONG AS USUAL! He was the defensive coordinator of Kansas City. And he only got fired because Pioli and Todd Haley hired their Ex Pat bud Romeo Crennell instead after Crennell GOT FIRED! What a dummfuk!

    ====================================
    Can’t you read, CrossPosting Beyotch? I CLEARLY STATED he got fired by KC THIS YEAR…DUMBASS..and that he got fired LAST YEAR by AZ AFTER their SB..DUMBASS.
    Try and pay attention, foolish tool.

    And ALSO STATED that now? In FEBRUARY??? He was without work. Post 55..DUMBASS..right above your post.

    ======================

    Bad news for ya…THOSE AREN’T THE BASICS.
    It’s not that he didn’t come to camp in shape that cost him the starting gig.
    It’s not that he didn’t know the complete playbook.
    It’s not that he decided to act all that, and skip sessions….

    IT’S BECAUSE HE SUCKS AS A QB.
    Lousy footwork is lousy footwork.
    Can’t hit water from a boat has nothing to do with watching film.
    Zero pocket presence is still zero, regardless of OTA’s.

    The man’s a train wreck.

    That said..it’s Al Davis, lol.

    And Al’s new motto of the decade is “WOULD RATHER LOSE MY WAY THAN SWALLOW MY PRIDE AND ADMIT I F***ED UP”.

    Oh wait.
    He’s had that motto for a while…

    *******************

    Wishfull thinking but unfortunately not true. I ran into Tom Cable at a restaurant in Alameda of Friday and suggested Troy Smith RFA, Ravens. He said “we got JaMarcus and he’s going to be our guy. His old coach is coming and he’ll be OK”. I said I hope that’s the case but he’s got a ton of bad habits to fix. He went on to infer that he has some inside information on Troy Smith and that option may no longer be an option. So, that certainly doesn’t sound like AD has had it with JaBustus.
