McCarthy mum on Moss, Perry

Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said Friday there some changes in terms of responsibility on his coaching staff, but declined comment on whether he could conceivably lose a coach to the Raiders.

Raiders coach Hue Jackson said Thursday he was still considering coaches outside the organization for the still-vacant position of defensive coordinator, and two names of interest have been Packers assistant head coach and inside linebackers coach Winston Moss and defensive backs coach Darren Perry.

Asked if the Raiders had expressed interest in either man, McCarthy said, “I’m not going to comment on speculation. Our coaching staff is intact and I’m glad for it.”

Jackson has already been blocked in an attempt to speak with Jets defensive backs coach Dennis Thurman about the position. Green Bay has blocked candidates in the past, most notably a chance for quarterbacks coach Tom Clements to interview with the Bears to become offensive coordinator.

Moss would seemingly be the more likely candidate than Perry because he would be more willing to come to a team that already has a defense and a set philosophy in place for a chance to become a coordinator. He has interviewed with Al Davis before and spoke glowingly of the owner and his roots as a Raiders player.

ROUTT MAKES IT OFFICIAL, RAIDERS STILL WAITING

UPDATE: The Raiders have announced the signing of Routt on Raiders.com

Still no confirmation from the Raiders on the signing of Stanford Routt, but the cornerback took it upon himself to make the announcement through a publicist.

Routt even confirmed the financial package _ $31.5 million over there years with $20 million guaranteed.

“It’s a great feeling to go back to a place you’re familiar with and not have to deal with the unkowns and uncertainties,” Routt said of his extension. “But the work has just begun; we have a tough schedule this year. My parents always taught me `finish what you start.’ ”

    Wiz 1.0 will turn B. Campbell into a mean, nasty, and feared O-lineman…

    Its great listening to Hue talk. That guy is absolutely positive we’re going to win the West.

  • Carl Weathers

    I like the idea of Saunders and Hue sharing playcalling and coaching the QB rather than have a QB coach. Both these men have a lot of experience in dealing with QB’s and it should help the offense gel early into the year.

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

    Did I miss it or is there still no confirmation that CB Chris Johnson ever signed either?

  • Nnamdi21

    49. Truth is Miller is clearly our best TE but he was suspect blocking last year for the run and it seemed, especially in pass protect.

  • Nnamdi21

    If anyone, its Moss

  • YoungAmerican

    Raiders just confirmed it.

  • YoungAmerican

    The Routt signing, that is.

  • post14em

    whacha might not wanna say is al is taking care of the d side of the ball. still need a fast strong outside linebacker and a good vet at corner. people hate on routt, but he’s a good cover corner who sometime is a victim of the refs.

    he only needs to react to the ball better. nnamdi took 3-4 years behind woodson to tone in on his skills and he has.i think if the broncos didn’t sign champ bailey he probably be a raider. still expect the d to cause havok. the d line could be best in the league,especally putting wimbley at end.

    the thing i’m looking for is to draft the best center(pouncey or wizz) address the o-line. what oakland needs to do is build an offensive line like the one gannon had when he had 8-10 seconds to throw the ball and the o will probably be the highest scoring team in the league. ( add a good vet rec. though i think schillens could be our stud if healthy)

    another solid draft like last year oakland will beat up on some teams 2011 !

    just win baby

    I don’t know why EVRYONE is so against yhe routt signing. He knows the system,has progressed each yr, an his STATS says he DESERVES the ends he got

    if you hate?

    Then go back an look at film

    yes lots of penelties
    but for the most part he was on top of his game
    more than past season.

    Until u look at his film
    STFU an quit trippin!!

  • SnB Production

    So who gave up the 29 pass TDs last year? That was 3rd worst in the NFL.

    Who gave up all those pass TDs? How do we get better losing the STARTER that gave up zero TDs?

  • J Hill

    How do we get better by not bringing back the guy who only gave up 5 TDs?

  • SnB Production

    So who gave up the 29 pass TDs last year?

    If Aso and Routt combined to only give up 5 TDs…the rest of the pass defense (Huff, Branch, the LBs, C.Johnson, W. McFadden) must have been downright awful!

  • YoungAmerican

    Branch gave up 8. I think Johnson gave up 4 or 5.

  • http://www.pro-football-reference.com/ KoolKell

    Routt gave up 65% of passes in 09′
    Routt gave up 37% of passes in 10′, contract year.

  • zopi

    It is obvious that by signing and giving that kind of money to Routt and Bey, Mr. Davis loves speed over skill, his trademark. It’s safe to say that he is highly consistent in his beliefs and football philosophy. He lives by it and will probably pass with it. Can’t expect anything else.
    As well, he has always upset the league’s apple cart, win or lose.
    So now the other owners are supposedly crying that even poor old Al, playing in an dump stadium, with less than half of the seats filled, totally dis-respected by the Bay Area press, which has given the whiners a free ride in publicity. And yet, he can afford to give Routt a 31 Million Dollar contract.
    That’s why it’s such a puzzle that even though Mr. Davis will overpay and reward less than stellar talent, over the last years a lot of these high-payed players haven’t risen to their expectations, to say the least.

  • zopi

    I hope Mr. Davis can lure Moss to coach the defense. That would give the Raiders some fresh blood and energy in both defense and offense, given that Saunders will stay just as “consultant” to HueJac.

    Al is a mysterious individual. Sometimes its about being able to say that he can overpay players, regardless of results, If that were not the case, we’d of had championship teams consistantly. If Al lived in the days of the wild west, my money says he woulda been one of those saloon gamblers. Its all bout having the highest payroll. That is where we are #1. And if your concerned about over-payed players under-performing, well, its actually quite simple. What do most people do when they aquire large amounts of money? They get fat.

    The richer teams “pay taxes” to support the poorer teams, like the Raiders.

    He’s spending “guvment money”, so to speak.

    When you look at TD passes given up u must look at mc clain wimbley an groves as well as the commitee(branch,huff,Mitchell, an co.) when tallying TD’s given.

  • Al Davis Macho Macho Supremo

    Hey KK, What is it about the combine that cant be sorted out during NCAA season? Anybody can throw a great bull pen, but how do they perform under pressure. Thats why I think Al would rather stay home (among other reasons, dont go there) and gather reports. Dont they have all the times and strengths and stats on these guys already? I aint bad rappin the combine, I just dont understand it.

    Man I hope Woodson can do someting with are DB’s
    ==========================================================
    Maybe he could teach DHB how to break coverages and seperate from defenders too. You know, kinda moonlight a little overtime. Couldnt hurt.

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

    I agree! Let’s hope he can influence the whole damn line with that attitude. It will be interesting to see what we do at center. Do we move Veldheer to Center and bring in a OLT FA. Carlisle certasinly can’t be the RG starter next year. Maybe Loper, BCampbell or Walkeer at ORG. Either a draftee of FA at ORT. IfGaither is in play, maybe he gets picked up for OLT. I think Gallery will stay so he’s at OLG. Veldheer at center. BCampbell at ORG and our #1 pick in the 2nd round this year at the ORT position. That O-line could get it done.

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

    So Al’s basically going to leave Bresnehan lying in wait while he begs Winston Moss to take a job that he clearly doesn’t want? Great for team chemistry. The Raiders will ALWAYS suck until Al is gone.

  • Midwest Fan

    Question for the experts.

    What if Asomugha signed a 1 yr deal for $12-13m w/ a player option of $14-16 on the 2nd year.

    He’s still making good money, has plenty of freedom, can see the direction of the team, and work within our cap, whatever it may be in the new CBA

  • YoungAmerican

    2) OG/C Stefan Wisniewski (Penn State), CB Curtis Brown (Texas), or OLB Mason Foster (Washington)

    3) OLB Casey Matthews (Oregon), C Jake Kirkpatrick (TCU), OLB Greg Jones (Michigan State), or OG/C John Moffitt (Wisconsin)

    4) CB Davon House (New Mexico State), CB/FS Marcus Gilchrist (Clemson), or FS Robert Sands (West Virginia)

    5) C/OG Brandon Fusco (Slippery Rock), FB Henry Hynoski (Pitt), or WR Ricardo Lockette (Fort Valley Stat0e

    6) DE/DT Cedrick Thornton (Southern Arkansas)

    —————

    Attempt to re-sign: Miller (RFA), Bush (RFA), Gallery, Reece (RFA), Mario Henderson, Satele, Bryant (RFA), Barnes, Loper, and Condo.

    Huff will test the FA market, but seems open to coming back for the right offer.

    Possible FA targets:

    CB Richard Marshall or Eric Wright
    OT Jammal Brown or Jared Gaither
    WR Santana Moss
    TE Matt Spaeth
    FS Jarrad Page (if Huff walks)

  • GoodOle00

    75. Raiders? Team chemistry? Al Davis cares not for your logic.

  • BoJackson

    3 years, $30 million, $20 of which is guaranteed for Stanford Routt???? Why???? Oh geez.
