Raiders fill final coaching vacancy

Raiders coach Dennis Allen rounded out his coaching staff by hiring Bob Sanders as his linebackers coach Friday.
Sanders spent the past four seasons with the Buffalo Bills, where he coached the defensive line one season and linebackers the final three.
Overall, Sanders has 33 years’ coaching experience in college and the NFL. He also coached for the Green Bay Packers and Miami Dolphins, including a three-year stint as the Packers defensive coordinator from 2006-08.
Allen fired four coaches the day after the regular season ended – offensive coordinator Greg Knapp, offensive line coach Frank Pollack, special teams coordinator Steve Hoffman and linebackers coach Johnny Holland.
Earlier this month, Allen hired Greg Olson to replace Knapp, Bobby April to take over for Hoffman and Tony Sparano as his new offensive line coach.

    Maybe Werner and that tackle our best buddies

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

    Or maybe he was being honest?

    Either way, not real comfy with either at #3.

    How can draft 3rd, and maybe get the 4th best prospect at their position (which those two might be)?

    ========

    I would take him in the 3rd

    Even in a down year the Lakers still own the Warriors.

    LOL, Dakota is just talking ish, but he is right so far!

    I wonder if Ziggy Ansah is going to get stung with this “AFrican born players are soft” perception some teams have in the draft.

    You got Okoye quitting the NFL after getting hit and saying he looked at playing football as a job. Prince Amukamura’s issues in New York. Jeff Otah refusing to play hurt and quitting.

    There is that perception out there, seen articles writen on it and draft guys talking about it, true or not.

    We seriously need a punishing FS
    Huffy aint cuttin it at FS and he surely isn’t a CB

    I hope Mistic isn’t following this morning

    I want more of a ball-hawking FS than a punisher type.

    Passing league, we need to get some INT’s on these jump balls, not all these PI’s.

    Need an Earl Thomas type back there.

    Osi wasn’t “born” in Africa. That is the litmus test apparently.

    Say what you will, but if Ziggy was from some hick town in Mississippi he would be a top 5 pick, IMO.

    These uber-smart guys with options that don’t appear overly passionate about football……some teams don’t like those types.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I liked what I saw from Cyprien in the Senior Bowl, but I am not going to confess that I watched a ton of FIU football this year.

    What round would we be looking at for him?

    Vegas,

    What about the Nigerian Nightmare?

  • Dakota

    If the Raiders are not going to LA, then where will they be playing? Oakland is not going to build them a stadium.

    Are they going to have to play second class citizen in the 49ers stadium to stay in the area?

  • hwnrdr

    B, Is your cousin’s design going through for the A’s at Jack London?

  • Just Fire Baby

    Oakland needs to figure it out ASAP, whatever their plans are for the 3 teams.

    Every passing year is another season of opportunity cost losses in revenues.

    13% interest?

    Can’t they go through public financing? Rates are in the 4-5 range.

    There is ways to do it with out it needing to be voter approved.

    Raiders need to do what Glendale did with the Cardinals.

    Create some iffy “quasi” municipality like they did, get the sweet muni bond rates for debt, but not need to get voter approval for every penny they spend.
