NFL Network: Waufle to Rams as DL coach

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Saturday, January 21st, 2012 at 7:31 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Defensive line coach Mike Waulfe will be the second Raiders assistant coach to leave for another job while the club awaits the hire of a new head coach, according to the NFL Network.

Waufle, who coached the last two seasons with the Raiders after an earlier stint from 1998-2003, was added to the staff of the St. Louis Rams Friday, according to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network.

Wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal accepted a job with the New York Jets earlier this week.

Waufle was in attendance at the press conference of new general manager Reggie McKenzie, who said he will leave it to the new Raiders head coach to make all hires on his staff. McKenzie is still in the process of interviewing prospective candidates.

As of Friday, Waufle was still included on the Raiders’ roster of assistant coaches.

    When you play good defense….you can keep yourself in the game even if your offense isn’t playing lights out or even very well.

  • lefty12

    Man are they letting the Ravens hold.Those are some of the most blatant holds you’ll ever see and there are no flags.

    I wasn’t sure which team I wanted to win this game, but I am finding myself rooting for the Pats.

    I think I am still pissed about the Fat Fuk Flop that cost us a SB in 2001. More pissed at the Ravens about that deliberate play than I am at the Pats about the refs fking us in the early part of the playoffs in the Snow Job game.

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

    13-10, Pats, good playoff game…i got a feeling Pats methodically will move down the field, where the Ravens will get a big bomb – they just missed a huge one with Torrey Smith (why wasnt DHB fast, like this guy?)

    Raider Sam #398,

    Agreed, with Al making the picks, those 1st & 2nd rounders were not really worth much.

    But when Al passed, it was unfortunate that the team allowed Hue to trade two picks that now have long-term value for a quick fix that didn’t even work

    To be honest, I was generally indifferent to trading the draft picks before the Carson deal. The reason was I didn’t feel Al Davis put the proper value on the 1st and 2nd round picks and ended up using them to draft reaches.

    With Reggie and staff making the picks AND the new salary agreeement for rookies….those top picks are worth a heck of a lot more.

    Hue should not have traded those draft picks for 32 year old Carson Palmer
    ==================
    They beat San Diego, were not having this discussion – bottom line is THEY COULDNT DRAFT, PERIOD.

    Thats why they had to make these deals – the drafts were awful around 2010

  • Dakota

    2001-Fat Fuk Flop on our QB
    2002-Snow Job
    2003-Gruden destroys us

    How did any of us survive that run? Probably not as bad as watching the Raiders lose so many big games in the 1970s, but still…

  • lefty12

    Give it up SnB,quit your whining.It has been proven you can win with a great offense and a lousy to mediocre defense,just as it has been proven you can win with a great defense and a mediocre to lousy offense.Not one way is ‘THE ANSWER’.

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

    I will say that this is a defensive heavy draft – wouldve been good to get Courtney Upshaw at rush OLB, or Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson.

    Ravens will be lucky to get off the field…just hold onto the ball and keep Brady off. Brady had it going on that last series

    3rd and 14 for Ravens – nice 15 yard gain

    Gallery is the worse pick in Raiders history IMO. That was one of the best drafts in history, and we get a G. Not a PB G. Guard!

    Gallery was a can’t miss type player, I believe he didn’t give up any sacks over a two year period at Iowa. It just goes to show you there is no such thing as a sure thing.

    =========

    They didnt take into account his arm length – something big time Player-Personnel people and scouts regularly acknowledge, along with off – field issues. We missed on that aspect, Russell’s apnea/purple drank addiction, and McClain off-field issues/in Decauter (shot at once, shot someone by ear)

    that ENDS with McKenzie here. He is doing due diligence and probably just seeing how candidates would go on with putting a staff together and playcalling strategem, etc.

  • Just Fire Baby

    John Clay was the worst Raider 1st round pick.

    Who is John Clay you say?

    Exactly!!!

    He played like 10 games and was out of the league.

    they passed on Rothlisberger, Fitz and Sean Taylor

  • lefty12

    Many of those picks were considered ‘safe’ picks when they were made-players that were can’t miss guys.As someone said,it shows what a crap shoot the draft really is.

  • Dakota

    The Oakland Raiders recently met with Packers assistant head coach/inside linebackers coach Winston Moss in Green Bay about their open head-coaching position, and multiple league sources said the session did not go particularly well.

    At this point in their search, the Raiders have only interviewed one person in Oakland — Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.

    Sources said Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie is expected to expand his search for Hue Jackson’s replacement this week. The Raiders also have interviewed Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen and former Miami Dolphins interim coach Todd Bowles, but those interviews happened outside Oakland.

    Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy also is on the Raiders’ list of candidates, along with Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers and New Orleans Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr.

    Sam,so did a lot of other teams.It is easy to be correct using hindsight.

  • realtruraider

    Al was starting to get his swagger back in the middle rounds these past few years.

    You could check out other teams first rounders, I believe its like 50/50 on actually getting a player in the first round that produces like a first rounder should.

    Yeah he wasn’t the best when it came to first rounders, no doubt

    ==========
    Gallery was the biggest bust with respect to who was passed on
    Rothlisberger – SB appearance
    Fitz – SB appearance, numerous receiving records
    Taylor – tragic death, but S with explosive, jarring tackling

    if fact; Phillip Rivers, DeAngelo Hall, Jonathan Vilma, DE Will Smith and Vince Wilfork all came from that draft

    then the 2nd bust was Jake Grove – passing on Nick Hardwick, Darnell Dockett and Shaun Phillips – 2004 appeared to be a fantastic draft for Chargers.

  • http://www.wasRaider75.com wasbanned

    Oakland traded out of the 42nd pick in the 2010 Draft to Get the 44th Pick and 190th Pick

    Raiders drafted Lamar Houston 44th and Travis Goethel 190th

    New England used the 42nd Pick to get Rob Gronkowski.

    What if Raiders would have taken Gronkowski at 42 instead of trading the pick?

    Hindsight,Sam,hindsight.When he was picked EVERYONE said Gallery was the best T to enter the draft in years.He was compared to All-Pros.It was said the Raiders would have their starting LT for 10-15 years.All the scouts and GMs were saying the same thing.Certainly he was a bad pick because he didn’t turn out,but he wasn’t the wrong pick like the bust was if the old man had done any homework.

    =====================
    Agreed. hindsight sticks out like a whore in a monastery with this franchise. I mean, they just missed and they missed a lot.

    They have to get that sorted out. It just was not their era, period. No 1,000 yard rushers no double digit interception DBs, no double digit sackers, no 15-20 TD rbs, etc.
