Glazer: Raiders denied in bid to talk to Thurman

The Raiders requested permission to talk to New York Jets defensive backs coach Dennis Thurman about the vacant defensive coordinator position but were told no, according to the Twitter account of Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer.

(Yes, I’m pretty sure this is the real Jay Glazer, unlike the erroneous information I passed along Wednesday).

Thurman was on the Baltimore Ravens’ staff with Hue Jackson before joining the New York Jets in 2009 and also worked with Jackson for a year on the USC staff in 2000.

Teams can deny permission to speak to coaches even in the case of a promotion unless it is for a head coaching job.

    m lonetree, i think what some of these guys do is rate players by their fantasy value..as if madden nfl is the real deal..anyone who knows football knows you can’t get this real game from the x-box ish…

    Anyone who disses Gannon is an idiot…

    Gannon completed 43 out of 64 passes against the Steelers for 403 yards….

    I would sign Vince Young in a heartbeat.

    And trade Jason Campbell.

  • Roch R

    With JCamp you know what you get, he is servicable, and he’s going to put up points and extend drives…does he have the warrior mentality, probably not, is he going to put the team on his shoulders, i doubt it, but we have other talent out there.

    JCamp is a good QB, good, that’s it, but the fact is that’s good enough, and we can win with Campbell, and we will win, and compared to what we’ve had I’m happy.

    You want a comparison, Campbell is better than Dilfer, and we’re building a D that Dilfer could have one a superbowl with. THe future is bright with the Raiders. Accept it.

    I remember that game, I think it was MNF, maybe… but that was an awesome game.

    Gannon played like a god until the Superbowl, when Tampa Bay knew what plays we were going to run.

    Nice read.

    I saw Jay Glazer earlier today on NFLN. He was speculating that if a labor deal doesn’t get done in time, there may be no free agency this year. Everything would stay as is, for one more year.

    That might actually benefit Oakland this year, given their number of potential fa’s. Might give em a chance to extend some of those contracts.

    I don’t see it happening, but he threw it out there as a possibility.

  • RaiderRetribution

    No CBA + owners ending lockout means complete free agency for all not under contract.

    Owners will have no rights to players unless under contract.

    U.S. statutes prevail over what the owners would want, owners need a CBA to control player movement.

    This is the one edge that each individual player has.

    Of course there is no minimum salary cap as there would be no maximum salary cap, owners could pay anywhere from minimum wage to $100,000,000.00 a player.

    The Asomughas, Mannings, and Seymours would benefit as the role players would get screwed.

    Quick poll: odds of Al signing VY?

    I say 40%

    ##########

    I don’t know, according to what Al said at the press conference about Ja Russel. Seems like he is done with players with personal problems. According to his statements I think the chances are pretty slim.

    As we’ve seen for the better part of the past decade(s)… it takes a very special combination of players, coaches, and organization to play great football — especially for more than a year at a time. One BIG mistake drafting your franchise player, and your team is done for for years.

    Gannon and Gruden would have likely never had the same success they had here, had they not linked up right here, at that specific moment in time. The Organization was the right combination of so many factors, and all winning organizations are able to keep that chemistry going for years, not just games.

    HueJax needs to turn this team into one of those kinds of teams. So far, he seems to be accepted as a great Coach by anyone who is asked…but can he be a great Chemist?

    Jets mangemenet: Thurman, oak wants to interview you. its a promotion.

    Thurman: no chance i want to go there. however i dont want to look bad to other teams (ie rejecting a promotion). can you guys ‘deny’ the request? id be happy to stay here for a chance at a REAL promotion here or one of the other 30 teams in 2011.

    Jets: sure. can do.

    thurman: thanks! wheeww!

    this whole thing just stinks becuase once again this is caused by Al Davis fostering a hostile environment for coaches in Alameda. I could see the Jets going to Thurman after the request was made and telling him:

    “Look, we are gonna deny the Raider’s request and if you give us one more year; then after next season you will get offers from much better organizations and we wont deny those. Deal?”

    Just a question and not arguing but, do you think the Colts would be any good without Peyton?

  • Mistabr0wn

    Why tip toe and raise a white flag for asking that question? DOnt want to offend some sensitive pud? The Colts would be a 5 or 6 win team a year without Manning. Big deal, I said it.

    Hell yeah I do. And this is coming from a guy who thinks Peyton is the best. The day he walked in the door he had Marvin Harrison and Marshall Faulk, Over the years, they added guys like Edgerrin James, Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark, all high draft picks. They’ve had a very good, stable offensive coaching staff and Tony Dungy did a great job with the Tampa Two there. Again, Manning is a great player, but like all great players, to show it in games, ge needs great players around him.

    OakGlen/Debo/666/Seymour,
    You’ve been busy with all your aliases lately.

    Welcome back numnutz.

  • Chris in NY

    Colts would win about two games with their current backups. Probably about 5 or 6 with Jason Campbell. Raiders are probably a 13 win team right now with Manning.

    I think if we had Aaron Rodgers there’s also an excellent chance we’re in the SB right now.

    Vince Young would’ve gotten us at least 10 wins and a division title plus a shot in the tourney. What’s Tenn’s record with VY and w/o VY the last two seasons.

    Anyone?

  • Just Win Baby

    All Thurman would have to do is decline an offer. Just because someone shows interest doesn’t obligate a person to take the deal. The Jets probably wanted to keep him.

    With VY – 12-7
    Without VY – 2-11

    So you arent even denying those are your aliases anymore, at least you’ve come that far! The first step towards recovery from mental illness is admitting the problem.

    Glad to hear you’re not cryin in your milk since we took Romac instead of John Conner. Have a good night.

  • RaiderRetribution

    Titus Young of Boise St. appears to be moving up the draft boards.

    Many had him going in the 3rd-5th rounds, now some are speculating he could go in the second, comparisons being made to Vincent Jackson.

    Should the Raiders consider him with the #17 in the 2nd?

    I feel he is a Mr. Ford clone, in that he great WR (maybe even better than Jacoby) and returns KOs, but not punts.

    Cooper should be done, and possibly should have been done last year, and I’ve called him out numerous times, but I have to admit he’s one of those technique guys, kinda a willey ol’vet that can play above his skill level.

    The fact is we ran pretty decent off of the right side, and credit is due.

    but yea Grads should be relegated to back up, that is what he is, a capable back, that’s it.

    The Salem witch trials were a series of hearings before county court trials to prosecute people accused of witchcraft in the counties of Essex, Suffolk, and Middlesex in colonial Massachusetts, between February 1692 and May 1693. Despite being generally known as the Salem witch trials, the preliminary hearings in 1692 were conducted in a variety of towns across the province: Salem Village.a Republican would accuse someone of witchcraft then once they were burned or hanged,yhe republican would sieze the deceased land.

    Here’s the average Raider “fan” on this blog:

    -Our QB sucks
    -The win at Denver was because we just got ‘em at their low point
    -The win at home over SD was lucky
    -The win over KC at home was lucky too
    -The loss against Pittsburgh was the “real” Raiders
    -The loss against Miami was again the “real” Raiders as well as the loss against Jacksonville.
    -The win on the road against SD was a fluke. They underestimated us. It was more SD beating themselves than anything else.
    -The last game against KC was meaningless
    -Al Davis is the biggest jerk in sports
    -The Oakland Coliseum is a cesspool
    -No players or coaches want to come here…EVER
    -Raiders are still a laughingstock
    -Pittsburgh Steelers are a “class” organization and Raiders are garbage
    -Raiders are gonna suck next year for sure. Be lucky to win 7 games, if that
    -All our current players don’t wanna be here. Just wait and see

    I’m sure I missed a few. It’s great being here on the Kansas City Chiefs official Raider hater blog.
