Biekert stays as LB coach _ still no DC

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Tuesday, February 8th, 2011 at 2:02 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders announced Greg Biekert would serve as linebackers coach this season, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Chuck Bresnahan will end up being named defensive coordinator.

Although there has been no confirmation of an interview, it’s believed coach Hue Jackson is looking hard at Winston Moss, who served as assistant head coach and as a linebackers coach for the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. The Arizona Cardinals have reportedly requested permission to speak to Moss as well. Arizona and Tennessee are both currently without a defensive coordinator.

Moss has interviewed with the Raiders before and expressed a desire to work for Al Davis.

When Bresnahan was hired Feb. 1, it was without a specific designation. HIs experience is primarily with the secondary and linebackers aside from being a defensive coordinator and he could conceivably work in both areas with the nickel package should Moss come aboard.

    DeMaurice Smith will get paid in a lockout while the people he represents won’t.

    Bogus.

  • LA to TheBay

    Ok, thanks for the explanation.

    LA,

    Teams can actually sign their own FAs now. The owners are essentially coluding(sp) in hopes that the new CBA is more favorable to them.

    Seymour could be signed to a 3 year contract today. Just don’t know how his numbers would impact a salary cap.

    If it were up to me, I’d take a run at Huff and Seymour now. They might bite knowing they might now get that much cheese after the new agreement.

    ^^^^^^^^
    Agreed.

    The Raiders need to resign Seymour and Huff NOW…and then they can Franchise Z. Miller and then Transition either Wimbley, Gallery, or Bush.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Not sure why any team would do anything prior to a CBA.

    You could put a transistion tag on a player, than they take away transition tags altogether.

    No sense tipping your hand if you don’t have to.

    Sorry, but I’m not paying Zack Miller 5 million a year.

    ^^^^^^^
    Ahh…but are you okay with wasting a crap load of money on DHB??

  • J Hill

    I think it’s AMAZING that these folks can’t get together and figure out how to chop up 9 BILLION dollars.

    Unreal!

    Players asking for half is UNREAL!

    60-40 to the owners, and lets get on with this!

    Or 5 billion to the owners and 4 billion to the players.

    BILLIONS???!!!!???!!!

    LMFAO!

  • J Hill

    What makes you think I am ok with paying DHB what he’s making?

    Thank goodness for the new rookiw salary scale.

    But I’m not paying Miller, a TE who can’t block, coming off arguably his worst season with all the drops, 5 million a year.

  • J Hill

    JFB,

    I wouldn’t call it tipping my hand. I’d just probably make a run at the guys I thought I might lose.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Owners are the ones risking their money, they should get at least 60%.

    When the Jamarcus Russell’s of the world just get high on the company dollar, screw up said company for a few years, and effect their profits, while his salary is all but guaranteed for awhile, there is something terribly wrong with that.

    The players want 50% of the profits? Fine, play for one year non-guaranteed deals every year.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I wouldn’t call it tipping my hand.

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

    Sure it is.

    You slap a tag on a guy, and now he expects that in salary if those tags are removed in the CBA.

    You going to tell Zack, “Hey I know we transitioned you at $5 million a year in Feb, but we don’t have to do that anymore, so how does $3.5 sound?”

    That isn’t going to go over well, and just creates un-needed drama.

    Do what you do best Al, take forever (or until after March) to do anything.

    The players won’t be getting paid by the owners. DeMaruice Smith and the union, on the other hand, will give the players the shirts off their back if necessary.

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com The Real MaddenRaider

    JHill, you’re just too big a fan of guys who sit in luxurious offices and sip cognac while other people work. The owners thank you, though.

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com The Real MaddenRaider

    Owners are risking money that they have loads more of, players are risking lifetime paralysis every time they step onto the field.

  • LA to TheBay

    The players have been taking 50% for years and the owners want them to take, what — 18% less AND tack on 2 games while growing the sport, getting record numbers each year?

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com The Real MaddenRaider

    Oh, yeah, those poor owners, LA to the Bay. Whoa is them.

  • Just Fire Baby

    How many ex-players are paralyzed for life?

    I haven’t heard of many, only the guy Tatum drilled and that Dennis Byrd guy.

    Not a bad risk for retiring with a pension at 32 years old.

  • LA to TheBay

    Goodel’s a joke and the perfect schmuck for the owners. Guy wants an NFL franchise in London.

    West Coast teams have issues playing in Florida and they’re talking f*cking ENGLAND? LOL.

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com The Real MaddenRaider

    Oh, yeah, football’s no more dangerous than golf, JFB.

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com The Real MaddenRaider

    JFB, the reason why many high school basketball players, baseball players, etc. opt not to play football is because it’s too dangerous.

  • LA to TheBay

    MR, I’m for players.

    At least let them maintain the 50-50. Make them take less AND add two games AND make them travel the globe on short rest and they claim to care about player safety? Owners are trying to grow the sport at the expense of the players.

    Football is by far the more popular sport, but contracts aren’t guaranteed and baseball players make 3-4 times more. Why? Less risk of injury and more games.

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com The Real MaddenRaider

    LA, I’m for players and owners. Owners win no matter what.

  • PurpleDrank81

    No matter what the owners will be paid fat… Lets just get this thing over with so we can go into the offseason like usual… There arguing about billions when there’s 10.3 million borderline starving children in the U.S.A…

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com The Real MaddenRaider

    It’s weird how so many sports fans side with the owners in labor disputes. The owners get most of their dollar. And what do they get in return? Even higher prices at the stadium, which the players see very little of on the dollar. Sort of a masochist thing at work between sports owners and their consumers. Bizarre. Some people just need to be abused.

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com The Real MaddenRaider

    The owners can end this any time they want to, Purple, and get things back to normal. DeMaurice can’t afford to budge, because too much is at stake on his side. The owners can, however. And, indeed, it is a shame that their greed makes them so reluctant to do so.

  • LA to TheBay

    PD81,

    I agree, but at the same time, if you want the madness to stop, you have to stop watching and supporting the business.

    It’s gotten to this level because of corporate greed and a very, very succesful, popular product.

    When TV first came into your average household, a third of the country was tuned in, with only 3 or 4 channels. Now, decades later with 2000 channels, a third of the country still tunes into the Super Bowl and advertisers pay how much for 30 seconds?

    We’re all guilty.

  • PurpleDrank81

    Oh I know the owners can end it and I do believe the Greed is ridiculous I dont side with the owners at all but something needs to be done…Like I said no matter what the Owners will be paid fat.

  • LA to TheBay

    I agree, MR.

    If De caves, he’s the guy that allowed players to take 18% less, play an extra two games, two of which will probably be in Europe.

    Whereas his predecessor is the guy that pulled off the great deal the owners were scared of.

  • hwnrdr

    Like Tupac has rapped about before…
    You got money for wars but can’t feed the poor…
    Unfortunately greed is just as big a disease as obseity in America! If not bigger…

  • PurpleDrank81

    LOL as Raiders fan we dont get watch the games anyway

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com The Real MaddenRaider

    When you just say that “something needs to be done”, it implies that both the owners and players are at fault, and that’s absurd. The players’ union can not budge. The owners can. They owners are 100% at fault right now. It’s not a two way street, it’s not a case of two sides that can’t come to agreement. It’s a case of owners being greedy, period.

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com The Real MaddenRaider

    It’s like seeing someone stabbing another person on a street in broad daylight, and saying that the two of them need to come to some sort of agreement, something needs to be done. Uh, yeah. The guy with the knife needs to stop stabbing the other guy.

  • PurpleDrank81

    Im always gonna ask what did the other guy do to deserve to get stabbed LOL

  • PurpleDrank81

    Well I meant something needs to be done as in The owners need to give them what they want.

    not just weird but tragic in a way. People want to believe that they are the proxy team owners and that the players work for us. Its why when the first pick of the draft signs his contract this board will light up with people saying that he is overpaid and spoiled and never earned a dime of his contract. But when a executive earns millions a year no one will say a word about it. You will hear people say that those Captains of Industry earned billions for their company. Total BS. Which job is harder NFL player who will most likely only have about a four or five year career and spend his later years dealing with multiple health problems or this guy —

    Mr. Maffei, the leader of Liberty Media Corp., enjoyed total direct pre-tax compensation of $87.1 million LAST YEAR, four times his 2008 package and enough to land him atop the rankings in The Wall Street Journal’s latest CEO pay survey, which includes all 456 of the biggest U.S. public companies.

    Sorry but I would rather see rich owners than the spoiled athelets we now have playing the games getting more money.

    Lets face it these guys get millions to play a game and they are still greedy wanting more money.

    Owners being greedy is understandable as goes the corporate world.

    thats like me saying to my boss you make more than me I want a raise!

    I appreciate your opinion of diva athletes, but really the current situation is like your boss going to you and saying

    “The contract you have right now is too good, so I’m opting out. You should take an 18% decrease in salary. Oh, and by the way, we want you to work 6 days a week, one of them in Toledo.”

  • HairyBush

    The Redskins have reportedly already “reached out” to free agent DL Shaun Rogers.
    Per Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer, Rogers is expected to visit the Redskins this week, perhaps as soon as Friday. With Albert Haynesworth as good as gone this offseason, Rogers would be a replacement at nose tackle. Rogers can still get after quarterbacks, but he’s no longer a top-notch run stuffer

    That is pretty far fetched how did you dream that up?

    Were you on acid?

    “Unless the union offered to take 50 cents on the dollar of every dollar and said that it was a bottom-line position with no room to move, the league should have acknowledged that 50 cents on the dollar of every dollar is a reasonable opening position, and the league should have digested the offer and responded.”

    The problem is that we the fans are getting screwed in this ongoing battle between owners and players….meanwhile the prices for tickets are going up and up and up…

    Yup! What about US????

  • PurpleDrank81

    Stefen Wisniewski has trouble with powerful D-Linemen and the system he gets drafted into is going to have to be a ZBS

  • hwnrdr

    Perfect…unless we totally ditch that ZBS!
