Raiders round out coaching staff

The Raiders announced the hiring of six assistant coaches, which should round out new coach Dennis Allen’s staff, with the possible exception of another assistant or two.
The Raiders confirmed five previously reported hires: quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo, wide receivers coach Ted Gilmore, tight ends coach Mark Hutson, defensive backs coach Johnnie Lynn and defensive line coach Terrell Williams. The lone new name is Clayton Lopez, who also will coach the defensive backs.
DeFilippo and Lopez coached with the Raiders during the past 10 years, both in the same capacity.
Hutson, Gilmore and Williams are entering the NFL ranks as coaches for the first time. Lynn has coached at the NFL level for 17 seasons.
The addition of Lopez and Lynn all but assures that Rod Woodson and Kevin Ross won’t be back for another season. Woodson inquired about the Cincinnati Bengals defensive backs job that went to Mark Carrier a few days ago.
Al Saunders (senior assistant), Steve Wisniewski (assistant offensive line coach) and Kelly Skipper (running backs) are the only holdovers from Hue Jackson’s staff last season. Saunders was the offensive coordinator last season. He was replaced in that capacity by Greg Knapp.

    league sources also telling me the Raiders have expressed interest in Alameda Ta’amu outta Washington!

    League sources tell me the Raiders are not going to lead the league in penalties next year!

    “There aint an MLB in the league that can cover Calvin Johnson 40 yards down the field.”

    Yes there are many who can with help from the safety as McClain had on that play.

    Yes, Ed Reed etc…but NOT practice squad player JEROME BOYD!

    Penalties are the most telling statistic if you are looking for leadership or the lack thereof.

    You see the teams that don’t get penalized until the 4th quarter and play tight clean games, and you see championship caliber teams with every man holding himself accountable to the next man for PF’s.

    This team’s leadership last year was a void, and no accountability, no reprecussions, every man for himself. This team needs gutting, not just at the coaches level, but the players too.

    Sorry bcz24, beat me to the punch…

    Uhhh Jerome Boyd had no business being on our PRACTICE SQUAD

    league sources tell me that if we can’t get Dontari Poe or Alameda Ta’amu, Nick Jean-Baptiste will be selected with our RD3 comp pick (thanks Nnamdi!)

  • 1960AutumnWind

    League sources have informed me we will be drafting Andrew Luck as Indy is giving us the #1 overall pick because they feel bad for us with what happened in the snow job bowl and hate Brady as much as we do.

    Figured I would let you hang yourself before the coup de grace, Mistic.

    One thing NO WOMAN WANTS is you, or anyone, giving out her full name to servers.

    Will really go over well if you let every tom dick and harry know your dates first and last name, which means they can easily look her up.

    Now you’re toast, you fool.
    ==============

    LMAO, put down the blow up doll and weenie pump bra, try talking to an actual woman.

    Who said anything about “giving full names”?

    Yes always introduce yourself to the people serving you and introduce your chick or chicks by the first name as well. Its classy and smooth, and it separates you from the faceless rude masses that frequent the establishment.

    Tipping is customary and by trying to weasel out of tipping when you received good service is lame. You dont need to a big tip, and it has nothing to do with impressing anyone. Shirking a tip makes you look petty and juvenile.

    Tip your servers, and introduce yourself, these are basic people skills.

    ———————
    WRONG AGAIN.
    No, you do NOT introduce yourself to your server, and you sure as hell don’t introduce your date.
    Admit it, you’re a fool. Only a damn fool would say to a guy who let’s you know his name in the event you need more sour cream, “oh, and my name is Mistic the Moron. And this is my date, Bruce.”
    No one does that.
    Ever.
    Unless you’re 15, and confused on this going to restaurants thing.
    you notice not ONE person agreed with you about introducing your date to your waiter?
    Because you don’t do it. Shows you have no class. This isn’t a bar, you idiot. It’s not a frathouse, you idiot. We’re talking nice restaurants, and the protocol is you don’t introduce yourself. You NEVER introduce your date, and you sure as hell don’t introduce the party you’re with.
    Save the “tip” suggestions. We all know the protocol for tipping. And we all know a unschooled geek is the only one who introduces his date to the server.
    Still laughing about your claim that most women pay attention to what everyone orders, how much it is, what the total is, and watches carefully to see how much you tip.
    That alone makes you an idiot.

    “Uhhh Jerome Boyd had no business being on our PRACTICE SQUAD, in my opinion his ‘helping’ cover Megatron is no better than if you had personally been out on the field on that play.”

    So true yes we can agree on this!!

    DETROIT (AP) – General Motors earned its largest profit ever in 2011, two years after it nearly collapsed into financial ruin.

    GM also said Thursday that its 47,500 blue-collar workers in the U.S. will get $7,000 profit-sharing checks in March. The checks are based on North American performance and are a record for the company.

    i am not against tipping the waiter. but what the hell is this “introduce yourself and your date to your server” never heard of such thing. so you introduce yourselves to everybody? the hostess? the waiter? the bread dude? the maitre d? the somelier? the fella in the bathroom?

    Asking people on this blog about restaurant etiquette is about as incongruous as anything I’ve seen in here.

  • HayesDaze37

    This is too freakin’ funny. Alex7 (our troll “teacher”) arguing with Mistic on etiquette.

    One says you ALWAYS do something…the other says you NEVER do something. Listen, people…it’s not rocket surgery!

    If you’re going to be speaking intimately, or of a personal nature, as in having an actual conversation with your server…then of course you’d probably (not certainly) want to introduce yourself. And if you just treat the person sitting with you like they are invisible, it probably won’t go over too well.

    It’s all about the moment, the situation, the location, and the amount of personal information you like to share with strangers.

    There is no absolute right way. Duh.

    Problem with that is, everybody would run right over to K-Mart, expecting a giant sale.
