Raiders confirm hires of Woods, Robertson

The Raiders have hired Joe Woods to be coach the defensive secondary and Marcus Robertson as assistant secondary coach, the club confirmed Monday.

Woods is a 10-year coaching veteran, the last eight with the Minnesota Vikings. Robertson was a secondary coach for the Detroit Lions in 2012-13 and before that worked for the Tennessee Titans.

The two replace Johnnie Lynn and Clayton Lopez, who were not retained on Dennis Allen’s staff for the 2014 season.

    “The Acapulco Hotel. George (Clooney) and Jude (Law) are chillin in the pool drinkin’ margs and checkin’ out the talent.

    3 amazing babes stroll by with huge fake hooters. Jude – “Well Georgie-boy, seems as though Spring Break does in fact rule, shant you agree?” George – “Do you mind if I tell people I don’t know you?”

    Suddenly some horrible music starts playing near the tiki bar. Our heros look over to see Sugar Ray doing a sound check and weak stage moves. The sound guys are all laughing at how lame they are.

    Jude – “Dammit, George ol pal, we’ll never get laid with all of this noise ruining our game.”

    Suddenly 5 totally kewl dudes parachute down from the sky, revealing themselves to be …. ”

    Yes, here’s the next scene, as we left the boyz they were hella bummin’ over Sugar Ray getting ready to do another totally laughable show

    But then 5 super kewl dudes come parachuting down, revealing themselves to be …

    “That’s right … Legenday blog boy band 2 KEWL 4 SKEWL!
    Quickly these studs take off their parachutes and helmets and easily kick Sugar Ray’s azzes. Mark McGrath gets a tiddy twister and runs away crying.

    The 2K4S boys turn to face the adoring and cheering crowd and manage to look even more handsome than on their record covers

    They jump into the pool and start high 5in’ George and Jude. George – ‘You dudes saved the day, by the way I do not know this guy standing next to me’. Jude – ‘Ha ha, Georgie-boy, you are such a card.’

    Quickly the bartender throws a keg of margaritas into the pool and everyone starts to get seriously PLOWED and pop major boner-dawgs”

    SHOUT OUT TO MR. RALPH LAWLER

    Joe and Marcus…..I would rent and not buy….this coaching staff already has 3/4th its body out the door. Our owner simply could not afford to fire an entire coaching staff this off-season because he has hair care needs, but next off-season….watch out!

  • 1960AutumnWind

    He will still have bad hair days. These guys are probably safe. He won’t want to pay RM and DA for playing Tweedledums.

    Reggie dragging his feet on Veldheer….so after all of the Clowney/Manziel/Watkins/trade up/trade down talk, Reggie is going to end up taking the hard line with Veldheer, watching him walk and then using the #5 pick on a tackle? Treading water baby!:

    “Left tackle Jared Veldheer will hit the open market at the start of the new league year if the Oakland Raiders can’t get him signed to a long-term contract.

    Oakland Raiders left tackle Jared Veldheer would “like to see a little more urgency” from the team regarding a new contract. That quote comes from Veldheer himself while appearing on 95.7 FM The Game. Veldheer is set to hit the open market when the new league year begins.

    Veldheer has expressed his desire to remain with the Raiders in the past, saying before that he “really wants to stay in Oakland.” The Raiders have been talking to Veldheer for awhile now, but it sounds as though there has been little progress on a long-term contract, which both sides are presumably after.”

    “McIngvale, whose stores have been in business for 32 years, still says $7 million is a significant hit. He said it represents roughly 5 percent of the company’s annual revenues.”

    I am in the wrong business.

    Hmm… not sure what to say about this. Maybe Reggie sees something we don’t in Veldheer’s play? I like the guy, regardless. I hope we re-sign him.

  • SlashNHack

    If that happens I am done with Reggie…. 50-50 chance… We lose Houston too and that’s just too extra holesin areas that were covered by quality starters.

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    even better ….

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    brah you’ve waiting long enough …

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    who’s that?

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    uncool, bro. totally uncool.

  • TrevJo

    Why do you say he’s dragging his feet? Has ANY significant free agent been re-signed by an NFL team in the last 2 weeks?

  • Dakota

    Peyton Manning finally talked to the media the day after his super bowl loss. He simply said “I blame Greg Knapp.”

  • FourMoreYears

    March 11th being the beginning of the new league year, in case anyone else was wondering.

  • funnyfalcon

    can’t argue with his logic!

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Good point.

    Knowing Reggie he might roll with Watson/Barnes

  • SlashNHack

    He partied hard bro

  • Ron69

    I’d say trade down is the only good choice for the hungry talent Raiders, let’s say Ravens or Jets and take an extra second and fifth. And finallly rebuild the DL with the first two picks adding a big name free agent to the mix.

  • MachoManRandySavage

    Watson? The immigrant that started playing football 3 years ago?

    4-12.

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    You obviously have no appreciation for the cinema

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Dang, good point

  • DutchRaid

    It will be interesting to see what we get in Free Agency…never know what Reggie actually wantes and what he will get.

    Dan Brah, you can see now why all of Hollywood is going crazy for my screenplay

    The Excitable Boy !!! He partied hard bro… Werewolves of London dude…. Lawyers Guns and Money…Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner ….

  • Ron69

    I’d say beside Veldheer one big fish in offense and two in defense not counting Houston, CB and DE are the most pressing needs, plus i’d say 7-8 depth players

  • SlashNHack

    You just got extremely lame, bro. No knowledge of Zevon gives you major dork points
