Wylie expected to join coaching staff

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.

    Young became suicidal after lame-ass Titan fans booed him…can you imagine who he would feel when the Oakland fans got ahold of him?

    night club fights
    missed team meetings
    suicidal and depressed
    fit throwing at games

    Yeah, this is really the guy we want as our future QB.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Knowing Al Davis & the Raiders … They will trade our 2011 2nd rounder to the Titans for Vince Young, pay him the $12.75 million for a 1-year trial and Hue Jackson will bench him 3 times in favor of Bruce Gradkowski. Then neither QB will be retained in 2012

  • alex7

    poor RR, you show your ignorance more and more with each post.

    The Bills have Ryan Fitzpatrick, who threw for 23 TDs last year, more than JC ever has.

    Ryan threw for 4 TDs and 380 yards on the Ravens.

    The Browns have Colt McCoy, a rookie, who will have a chance again next season to continue starting.

    We get it Dakota,

    you would rather have a polite QB that loses, over a cocky knucklehead that wins much more often than he loses.

    In the realm of sports, I don’t find option 1 appealing.

    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.
    ———————
    JC did not play his rookie year, but sure you can bring up his second year when he started 7 games and threw for more TD’s than VY when he started 15.

    When a play changes teams with a new system, there is no way you can take the previous year stats to determine how he will do the following year. You should now that Alex.

    Also, I think he only threw for 200+ yards once or twice and his record was 5-5.

    Jason’s record was 7-5.

    “Every time it is always something about Vince,” Young said. “It’s Vince, Vince, Vince, Vince, Vince. But it’s all good. I don’t feed into it. I don’t even read the stuff. Half the time I don’t know what is going on.”

    Remind you of anyone?

    trade for Ryan Fitzpatrick then!

    He’s in the last year of his contract and he’s only due to make $2.8 million next year

    but the Bills only finished 4-12 last year, so why are you praising this guy again? I thought you were all about WINNING ???

    Alex, just throw in the towel already. 5 semi pro bloggers are using you for a punching bag

  • McRaider5150

    and Alex, 1.5 year differnce in age is not enough to make a difference. I actually believe that VY will be out of the league before JC because he is a running QB.

    Bottom Line:

    Jason Campbell is our starting QB in week one of 2011.

    Like it or lump it, you better get used to it.

    All of the GM’s, especially Al, are concerned that OTA’s may not happen this off-season, or be greatly reduced. So in 2011 especially, no team is gonna start a different QB, unless they absolutely have to.

    ************
    When you dont have a responsibility (or eschew it to freelance) its easy to be in position to make plays. Asante Samuels is the same way. They make plays, but they give up as many as they make. Its like saying Stanford Routt is better than Nnamdi because he had 7 ints (i know he didnt, its hyperbole) but allowed 7 TDs. I said it back when we signed Hall, he is a very good zone defender, and would probably excel at being a free safety.

  • alex7

    McRaider,

    not the lame “new system” excuse.

    How did Schaub do his 1st year in Hou?
    Warner’s 1st year in AZ?
    Brees’ 1st year in NO?
    Ben’s 1st year in Pitt?
    Flacco’s 1st year in Balt?

    You can either play the position, or you can’t.

    Turning THIRTY next year, JC has shown he isn’t very good. Asking a QB to blossom 70 starts into his NFL career is asking for someone to re-write history.

    Yeah, people trumpet Vince young’s playoff experience, lol….they went to the playoffs despite his almost 2-1 Int to TD rate in 2007 and then he rode the bench in 08.

    What a great QB!

  • alex7

    lol McRaider,

    5-5 is a let-down year for VY. His career W/L % is so much higher, that we use a .500 season to bring him down.

    Compare that to JC, who we get ECSTATIC about because he helped his team get to 8-8.

    I’ll take the guy who we look at 5-5 in a tough division as a bad year, over the guy we crown when he sneaks into .500 territory in the 2nd weakest division.

  • alex7

    Dakota,

    the day we can laugh at how bad JC was when he played in a playoff game, will be the first.

  • Just Fire Baby

    SnB PA,

    Here is the stat I think he was talking about in regards to Soup throwing the shortest passes in the league.

    His average pass didn’t go 6 yards down the field (lowest in the league).

    OK, I’ll ease up and go with what another poster listed as better options.

    Kevin Kolb (my concern is if he couldn’t get it done with Philly’s O, why all the hype?)

    Chad Henne (young, true upside, better pocket passer)

    Carson Palmer (a true low-risk, high-reward, change-of-scenery pickup. All you would ask him to do is complete 5 or 6 big throws in a game while handing it off to DMac 20 times. He could complete those 5 or 6 big throws MUCH more often than our current QB)
    Palmer has made the playoffs twice when given a great ground game. In the AFC North, no-less.

    Kyle Orton (much better #s and career win %, turned
    B. Lloyd into a Pro-Bowler)

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

    We are supposed to take into account a season in which a guy is carried to the playoffs by a good supporting cast, playing for a stable franchise and coaching staff, despite the player’s horrible play, and that somehow makes him better than another QB playing in the second most dysfunctional franchise in the NFL?

    That’s a good one.

    Put VY in Washington and JC in Tenn during those years and I guarantee his w-l % is better than VYs.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Looking at Soup’s situational stats, it doesn’t look as bad as the overall picture.

    The thing that jumps out is that on 3rd downs between 3 and 7 yards he has a QB rating 67.4, but 3rd’s and 8-10 yards he is at almost 100 and over 11+ yards he is over 100 on the QB rating.

    That is the essence of the checkdown. And Big Ben CONVERTS more 3rd and 8+ than JC completed passes on 3rd and 8+.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/7201/situational;_ylt=Aji.F23Ec1gnOUTQcUh1cx_.uLYF

  • McRaider5150

    He turns 30 at the end of next season and 30 year old QB’s can still play in the NFL.

    Warner SB winning QB with TOP notch WR (look at him in NY)

    Brees Once of the elite QB’s in the league

    Ben was horrible at time, but had one of the TOP D’s in the league and a guy named The BUS and Cower.

    Flacco came in doing well for his team, but that doesn’t always happen.

    You really need to stop compairing what other player have done for other teams, The Raiders have not been good for awhile and it’s not always the players.

  • bcz24

    Look at how many passes Routt had to face. He had almost a Pro Bowl year and people think he sucks. We need a DB coach to get our WHOLE secondary on the same page as far as catching the ball, and being able to execute zone coverages as well as man.

  • Just Fire Baby

    How is Tennesse less dysfunctional than Washington?

    Since Soup entered the league, the Skins have made the playoffs twice and won one game.

    The Titans made the playoffs twice and were one and done both times.

    Seems about a wash to me.

    So now wins the previous year don’t matter, right?

    How this Denver and Cincy do this year??

    Palmer did not get it done with TO and Ocho, doubt he could do it with DHB and Murphy

  • bcz24

    Kevin Kolb (my concern is if he couldn’t get it done with Philly’s O, why all the hype?)
    *************
    Kolb was injured and couldnt take the job back from Mike Vick whos #s were incredible for an 8 game stretch, some of the best ever in an 8 game stretch. Thats not to say Kolb couldnt get it done, but how do you bench a guy playing that well? Kolb played very well when Vick got injured this season as well.

    JFB,

    Gee I don’t know, one franchise has had the same coach for 16 years and went to the SB in 2000, the other franchise has had 7 head coaches in the past 10 years and has traded away multiple first round picks for little return and has made horrible decisions in free agency.

    Tell me which one is more dysfunctional. Lack of success does not make a team dysfunctional.

  • bcz24

    Palmer did not get it done with TO and Ocho, doubt he could do it with DHB and Murphy
    **********
    Palmer played DRASTICALLY better without TO and Ocho, and I bet that a vet WR is at the top of Hues list as much as it is ours.

  • M Lonetree

    long as y’all are heatedly debating the merits of a worthless QB VY, why don’t you toss in Matt Leinart and Alex Smith and Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson and Tarvarius Jackson as well as countless others? These QBs could also bring nothing to the table you’d want and at a minimal price.

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

    I’d take my chances with Palmer over Young….but I would want to keep JC on the roster just in case.

  • alex7

    McRaider,

    since you ask, I’ll look at a QBs life-long W/L record, as anything can happen in any one year.

    Palmer was in the playoffs JUST LAST YEAR, and twice in the last six years.

    He DID get it done in the toughest or 2nd-toughest division in football.

    Give him our running game, and a decent WR, and he’s a beast.

    Give JC a running game, and a decent receiver, and…it’s EXACTLY what he had in Washington.

    Lonetree,

    again, to some of us, winning matters. VY wins, while your list doesn’t.

    Bcz, was he injured week 1? Was 5-10 for 24 yards?!
    Threw 2 TDs and 5 INTs in his final 2 starts this year.

    All potential, not much proof yet. And he was in an A+ system.

  • J Hill

    All fine and dandy …

    BUT ….

    We ALL know the QB for the Raiders next season will be Jason Campbell.

    The guy is on a one year contract for 4.5, which is WAY reasonable. He has one year to try out and take this team somewhere.

    The real question is what happens if we win the division next year and Camplunkett has a decent season?

    I say we resign him now for 4 years 15 million.

    whoa, whoa JHill :) Take that back immediately!!

    That’s top backup QB pay, so why would he take that if he felt they wanted him as a starter?

    And no, we all know honestly that QBs don’t suddenly emerge after 70 NFL starts.

    If you want to be the Jaguars and go 7-9 or 9-7 every year, sign him to an extension.

    If you want to build a perennial playoff team, find a true top-15 QB. Not saying Hall of Famer top 5, just a guy who’s at least better than half of his peers.

    I running game really doesn’t matter if he doesn’t show up, right.

    So look at JC’s loses:

    Against Tenn 135 yds (34 from JC)
    Against SF 110 yards (21 from JC)
    Against Pitts 16 yards
    Against Jags 155 (Defense clearly lost this game)
    Against Indy 80 yards (10 from Jason)

    Do you think that the losses could have something to do with not being able to run??

    With no running game, I cause Palmer would have also loss these games.
