Wylie expected to join coaching staff

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, January 30th, 2011 at 9:05 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Bob Wylie, who worked last year with the Denver Broncos, is expected to join the Raiders 2011 coaching staff under Hue Jackson as an offensive line coach, according to a league source.

Wylie is a veteran of 30 years of coaching and last was season was the assistant offensive line coach under Clancy Barone on the staff of Josh McDaniels. In the Broncos’ reorganization under John Fox, Barone was moved to tight ends coach with Dave Magazu coming in to coach the offensive line.

From 2007 through 2009, Wylie coached in the Canadian Football League, for the Winnepeg Blue Bombers in 2007 and 2008 and the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2009. The Montreal Gazette reported early this week the Roughriders were talking to Wylie about returning in 2011.

Wylie has coached primarily tight ends and the offensive line with the New York Jets (1990-91), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1992-95), Cincinnati Bengals (1997-98), Chicago Bears (1999-2003) and Arizona Cardinals (2004).

College stops included Brown (1980-82), Holy Cross (1983-84), Ohio (1985- 87), Colorado State (1988-89), Cincinnati 1996 and Syracuse (2005-06).

Steve Wisniewski, the Raiders’ former Pro Bowl guard, was hired this week as the offensive line assistant.

The Raiders are also to finalizing a deal with Chuck Bresnahan as their linebackers coach, according to a league source.

Darren Perry, the Green Bay safeties coach, is on Oakland’s radar as a possibility for defensive coordinator, and has also been reported as a potential candidate in Philadelphia. Although his name hasn’t come up this year from what I’ve heard, another natural would be Packers linebackers coach Winston Moss, who has interviewed as a head coaching candidate with the Raiders in the past.

Candidates from the Packers and Steelers are off limits until after the Super Bowl, although it’s not unusual for teams to gauge interest from agents for the prospective hires.

    JC fumbled 9 times last year. Who recovers it is a crapshoot.

    Look how far you have to go to try and make JC look AVERAGE and slightly better than Russell, despite JC being 29 and given a top running game.

    All some of us acknowledge is there is room for improvement, and no position is more important.

  • SilverNBlackPA

    Jason Campbell is in the last year of his contract due $4.5 million – 8 wins last year

    Vince Young is in the last year of his contract due $8.5 million plus $4.25 million roster bonus in March – 6 wins last year

    guy punches dudes, disappears and threatens to commit suicide in the offseason and is benched for 38 year old Kerry Collins how many times since 2006?

    +++++++++++

    Excellent summation. Plus, he’s deluded enough to think he’s an “elite” QB. LOL.

    Young is a great guy to have when life is all wine and roses. When things get tough however, he’s a complete disaster.

    Russell’s toughness in the pocket had to be the most disappointing aspect of his performance. I thought we had the next Big Ben, but JaMarcus was softer than bath tissue. Even with all that extra weight he carried, he was still so easy to bring down. Problem was he had skinny legs, all his weight was in the upper body.

    —————————-

    He was softer than J-E-L-L-O…try to find something softer than that!

    lol, yeah, like you can compare records when one guy plays for a well coached, good team in Tenn and the other guy plays in dysfunction junction East Cost in Washington.

    Fact of the matter is Campbell put up better numbers in a worse situation than Vince Young.

  • alex7

    You guys sound like dog-competition fans or something.

    Guy wins, is a bit crazy, is cocky, doesn’t want to be benched for Collins (team went 1-5 after that) puts up better numbers than our QB, and suddenly he’s NOT a perfectly-described Raider?

    When did winning and losing take a backseat to being nice?

    Vince Young has talent but is a head case.

    Maybe tolerable if he’s a WR. QB?

    Oh Dakota,

    you can’t possibly not understand what an upward arc in a career is.

    Jason has flatlined, putting in his worst season as a pro last year, and never showing much progress in Washington.

    Young has gotten better the last three years, SUBSTANTIALLY with his 98 rating last year (something JC will never even approach), a great 10-3 TD to INT ratio in half a season, making a Pro-bowl-caliber talent out of Kenny Britt, and WINNING games.

    RIGHT NOW he is much better than JC ever has been. Why would you hold what he did 4 years ago (struggled) against him, and ignore that right now he’s an upgrade who wins?

    ————————–
    So the fact that JC had his worst season as a pro has zero to do with come from the east coast to the west coast new coach, new system, no vet WRs, a team that was dead last in offense two years in a row. Get real dude! Jason is slighllt above average, he is not manning, brees or Brady. Sory those guys are taken.

    How is 12 TDs, 8 Int, 33 sacks, 84 rating, and career losing record…

    than 10 TDs, 3 Int, 13 sacks, 98 rating, fewer fumbles and career winning record?

    Bizarre world you live in.

  • alex7

    exactly McRaider,

    VY outperforms JC in stats AND winning

    yet because VY gets pissed at being benched (and team goes 1-5 afterwards proving him right)

    and JC is all polite when getting benched…

    fans want the worse QB and loser instead. Sad what losing has done to fans.

  • LA to TheBay

    Alex,

    Campbell’s starting.

    There are no better QBs available in free agency, unless you count VY, who Al will not sign.

    We don’t have a 1st rounder, making a trade unlikely.

    I think you’ll have to accept that JC is the guy in 2011.

  • alex7

    You can’t overemphasize enough how bad JC was against non-AFC-west teams.

    1-5!!! Yikes. And that was WITH the weakest schedule we’ll see here in our lifetime.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Alex,

    VY is due to make $8 million MORE than Jason Campbell, who already has a year with Hue Jackson and his teammates

    If you think we should pay over $12.5 million for a headcase in the last year of his contract and dump JCamp, then you’re clearly aiming for a Top 3 draft choice in 2012 … in which case Hue Jackson would be fired and we’d probably try for a Stanford combo of David Shaw & Andrew Luck

    What I don’t accept is fans settling for the 19th-best QB when we had a weak schedule and the #2 run game.

    EVERY single playoff team this year except the Seahawks (for obvious reasons) had a star QB or a young up-and-comer.

    We have neither. You do WHATEVER you have to do to get one.

    I really don’t have an issue with VY, but if he comes here and goes 8-8 pr 7-9, you going to blame it all on him instead of spreading that blame more evenly accross the board.

    Come on RR,

    you’ve never heard of re-structuring a contract? Really?

  • alex7

    McRaider,

    a team can only control what players and coaches they put out there.

    We can’t control how the ball bounces or that we aren’t better than the Patriots, Jets, Packers, Bears, Vikings, Texans, and Dolphins (all which we play next year).

    As long as the owner is trying to upgrade the talent at key positions every year, that’s all you can really ask for.

    if that’s true that why are you blaming everything on JC? I can recall at least 3 of the 8 losses being a result of horrible coaching.

  • bcz24

    Jason Campbell is not the long term answer, but I think Vince Young would be a straight up disaster for this franchise. Alex you are completely ignoring the off field (and on for some of his garbage) issues that surround Vince Young, and the affect that would have on a VERY young football team, that already has accountability issues. I would take a look at Palmer or Orton or even Kolb if he could be pried away. Chad Henne is another guy with some upside that could probably be had, I know Miami is fed up with him, all these guys would NOT be giant distractions like VY. I have no use for this guy.

  • alex7

    Yes Dakota,

    I want to look at the now, not at how good or bad a player was 4 years ago.

    Crazy, huh.

    Campbell was the NFL’s WORST at dumping passes off (lowest avg. distance on passes in entire league). He had guys like Reece and DMac take those dump-offs to the house and help his completion and ypc stats.

    I’ll take the guy that wins, throws fewer picks, gets sacked less, AND throws to his receivers more.

    Today.

  • alex7

    Bcz,

    I would take all those guys you mentioned ahead of VY as well.

    I would then take VY ahead of JC for the simple fact that we are trying to win here, not be the most polite team.

    Again, we’re the Raiders. When did we decide being on great behavior trumped winning? I LOVE that Young was pissed at being benched. That’s the mentality I WANT in my QB.

    And he was right. Team was a playoff team with him, 1-5 with Collins.

  • SilverNBlackPA

    Young has played in 24 games the past 3 seasons (which is cause for concern itself, but another discussion)

    In those 24 games, he’s attempted 451 passes. That’s an average of 18.8 pass attempts per game. He has exactly 1 300 yard game in that 24 game span. Not once in 2010 did he even clear 200 yards.

    Know what those numbers tell me in comparison? Young plays in an offense that protects him in the extreme because his coaches damn well know he’s not a very good quarterback.

    When the Titans win, they win because of Chris Johnson and dominant play on both the offensive and defensive lines. Not because of Vince Young.

    People like to criticize JC as nothing more than a “game manager”….well, guess what? So is Young.

    And by contrast, in Campbell’s last 24 games, he’s attempted 689 passes, an average of 28.7 per game. He’s thrown for 300 yards 3 times in that same span. His coaches clearly don’t mind putting the ball in his hands, despite his occassional disastrous performance.

    +++++++++++++++

    Now you’re just flat out lying. Campbell had a 7.3 yards/attempt this year. That’s pretty standard.

    The worst in the NFL for guys who played at least 13 games were rookies Jimmy Clausen (5.2) and Sam Bradford (6.0)

  • http://blackhillsphoto.com/sturgis-weddings/black-hills-weddings.jpg Dakota

    After the Jamarcus Russell fiasco, to bring in a guy that has mental issues and leadership issues in Vince Young?

    That is just too funny. Pure ignorance.

  • alex7

    SilverNBlack,

    I have to totally agree with you on that.

    VY and JC are both game-managers.

    One has managed a 32-18 record,
    the other a 27-39 record.

    The one with the winning record also has a higher TD %, lower INT %, fewer sacks, fewer fumbles, and throws to his WRs more often.

    So VY is the better game-manager than JC. Done.

  • McRaider5150

    Alex, you keep complain about ho JC dumps off passes to his backs and how he doesn’t complete a lot of passes down field, but in the same breath, you talk about bringin in VY. Why don’t you go back and look at some of VY stats. Look at how many times he passes for less than 175 yards and how many times he dumbed pass off the RBs????

  • alex7

    SnB,

    your stat and mine are two different stats.

    Yards per completion involves giving the QB credit for whatever DMac or Reece did with the ball AFTER catching it.

    The stat I pointed out (yards traveled by pass) shows who is throwing the ball down the field, and who is simply dumping it off.

    JC was the WORST at simply dumping the ball off. Great when DMac takes it to the house. Not so great when it’s 3rd and 9 and you quickly throw the 4-yard out against the Steelers or Colts, instead of giving someone a chance downfield.

  • SilverNBlackPA

    Alex,

    So we agree they’re both game managers. Good.

    One of them has played in HueJax’s offensive system for a year and got pretty damn good at executing it in his last several games of the season and is respected by teammates, coaches and the owner.

    The other doesn’t know Jackson’s system, got himself benched and alienated his teammates, coaches and owner with his ego and immaturity.

    One has a losing record because of dealing with playing in Washington, which is basically Oakland on the Potomac when it comes to franchise dysfunction. The other plays in Tennessee, which had stable coaching until he came in and wrecked it.

    Who do you want again?

  • alex7

    Dakota???

    You care about career stats more than career wins?

    In your world, you take Jeff George over Ben Roethlisberger.

    Nice one.

  • SilverNBlackPA

    Well, my lunch is over. Time to work for a living.

    In summation: I don’t think JC is the guy to take the reins and be “the guy” the next 5-7 years. But he’s a hell of a lot better than the other options out there, ESPECIALLY Vince Young.

    Peace out for now, fellas.

  • alex7

    SnB,

    we’re getting closer.

    Mythbuster #1: Washington was bad when Campbell was there.

    Truth: Washington made the playoffs twice in JC’s 5 years there, both times AFTER JC ceased to be the starter and the backup went on a win streak.

    Did VY take the Titans to the playoffs at all? They didnt make it the last 2 years and they were 13-3 the year prior under Kerry Collins.

    15 starts
    9 tds

    only 2546 yards (6.66 yards per Att)
    71.1 rating

    This was in 2007. Is that that year he made to the playoffs??

    I wonder if his supporting cast had anything to do with that?

  • alex7

    Mythbuster #2: Campbell played well the second half of 2010.

    Truth: Campbell down the stretch

    Pitt 35, Oak 3, Campbell: 7-19, 70 yards, 3 turnovers
    Next week: benched
    Oak 28, SD 13, 10-16, 117, 1 TD
    Jax 38, Oak 31, 21-30, 324, 2 TDs
    Oak 39, Den 23, 15-26, 238, 1 TD, 2 INTs
    Ind 31, Oak 26, 29-42, 232, 1 TD
    Oak 31, KC 10, 15-25, 155, 1TD

    Nothing really masterful there, and 0-3 outside AFC west with playoffs on the line.

  • alex7

    And Campbell vs the Colts was HORRIBLE. Stat-padded in the 4th down two scores when Hue called 18 passes in final 20 plays against soft D.

  • alex7

    McRaider,

    why do you ignore last year, which is the most relevant one when predicting next year’s success?

    Should we bring up Jason’s horrible rookie year stats? What’s the point?

    Last year, VY was MUCH better than JC. He’s also younger and less turnover prone, and wins MUCH more often. It’s kinda simple. Winning is good. VY does it, JC doesn’t.
