Raiders interview coach off 49ers staff

Share

The Raiders interviewed 49ers tight ends coach Eric Mangini on Monday, the Associated Press reported.
That came one day after the Raiders interviewed long-time NFL coach Mike Shanahan, who had stints with the Raiders, Broncos and Washington, and Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton.
Mangini, 43, has five years of head coaching experience with the New York Jets and Cleveland Browns with a career record of 33-47. He came to the 49ers in 2013 as a senior offensive consultant before coaching tight ends in 2014.

    Actually in zone the blockers block at an angle. Power is head on

  • SlvrnBlck478

    That’s my problem with everyone who says TB is better then Carr because of their stats. Put Carr in TB’s situation and he would of had by far the best stats of any rookie QB.

  • the comedy genius dr robert

    doh!

  • R8der4evr

    Yeah how did Dennis Allen work out with that theory???

  • the comedy genius dr robert

    and he was saying people were stupid….

  • RTF916

    What would you call the movie where Al hires Art Shell in 2006, or drafts Russell in ’07?

  • Dan Walker

    Del Rio!!!

  • RaYdAFoELyPh

    This HC circus is flat out dumb and not gonna hire anyone worth a dam.. I’m still sticking to my March 10 prediction of when we name out coach…

  • Al_is_theraiders

    “better than this”

  • dplunk

    be weary of those ” check cashers”

    – Rich Gannon –

  • DutchRaid

    He did go 12-4 and 11-5 in Jacksoville…

  • the comedy genius dr robert

    one guy doesn’t mean the others are that guy.

  • scooboy

    Lol

  • RTF916

    Wrong.

  • RaidingTexas

    Is this your only way to respond to criticisms of Reggie? Bring up Al?

  • the comedy genius dr robert

    uhh, no.

  • The Big Banana

    That’s the best part.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    off line size moron.

  • R8der4evr

    So are coordinators that look good with great quarterbacks and great organizations

  • Miamiraider78

    I don’t remember Tom Cable ever going 12-4 or 11-5. Exactly.

  • RTF916

    Exactly. Angle blocking creates the whole. If the hole is between center and guard, to the right side of center, right guard takes a left angle on defender in front of him, center takes a right angle on defender in front of him. Hence, the hole. In zone, blockers go head on, runner finds the hole.

  • The Big Banana

    Lmao! He’s fighting it!

    Dude, you swung for the fences without a bat.

  • BigBenRexor

    I’m starting to like this pick even more based on your disapproval.

  • Raidman

    Trolls know no other way to argue other than bring up dead people’s old ways of doing things to justify their heroes’ ways of doing things now.

  • JLofty

    Weary or wary?

  • dplunk

    could be both depending on how you look at it

  • RTF916

    That’s not all Rich Gannon has said about this organization in recent years.

  • Raidman

    Par for the course for Trolls. #Idjiot

  • RaidingTexas

    It’s ridiculous. Like saying “man this rain sucks” and having him respond with “last week’s rain was way wetter than this”

  • JLofty

    I am weary myself. Nothing changes. No hope.
    Maybe Alyssa Milano will buy the Raiders. That’d be sweet…

  • RTF916

    It’s on topic. Al was our previous defacto GM.

  • the comedy genius dr robert

    no, ur simply wrong.i’ve taught the freaking schemes.

    power is traditional straight ahead blocking. man on man. a prescribed hole for the rb.

    zone is like the OL is on a track going in one direction. thy generally briefly engage their man in front of them and “hand him off’ leaving to angle block the defender who is coming across the line, effectively using his own momentum against him like in judo.

    the rb has to go to a “zone” and look for the hole that opens.

    this method allows the Ol to pick off blitzers and not try to identify who they are blocking beforehand, taking away some of the stunts and tricks of the defense.

  • RTF916

    Al’s not just any old dead person. It’s perfectly on topic to compare the criticism of the current GM with that of the previous GM.

  • centered

    Hey I’ve got bad news for everybody…MD is going to hire whoever he wants and doesn’t care what we think. We are wasting our time here. 7, 500 comments for nothing. Vote with your feet if it doesn’t work out in 2015. Console yourselves by picking a back east team to root for as a Plan B option…we’re going to need it.

  • RTF916

    No, because nothing can be done about rain. Things can be done about the Raiders.

  • R8derdiehard

    Dennis Allen was a tool, had no business head coaching at all even with 20 years HC experience he’d be terrible

  • Miamiraider78

    What a fck’n idiot!!! I don’t know everything about football and if I need help I research it before I try talking about it.

    Time to change that handle, that shet is EMBARRASSING!

  • JLofty

    The bar has officially been lowered to calf height.
    Now dance little monkey, dance….

  • FourMoreYears

    Really not even about angles, the angles just tell linemen what their responsibilities are.

  • RaidingTexas

    Al’s gross mismanagement in his later years does not preclude Reggie from being a disaster.

  • RTF916

    Overachievement, in the mold of Hue Jackson and Tom Cable.

  • JLofty

    I will never root for another.
    But I did cancel my DirecTv subscription. Running out of things to vote with my wallet with…

  • RaidingTexas

    You bet they can! And a good start would be dismissing Reggie!!!

  • scooboy

    I don’t know how it works exactly but he know he’s wrong lol. In ZBS your RB has to be patient and wait for a hole to open up. In PBS you find one hole and run it

  • RTF916

    I’m sure you’ve coached peewee football, but in order for there to be a prescribed hole, the blockers would have to block at an angle. Blocking head on for a prescribed hole is impossible. You’re just pushing defenders backward. That is zone blocking. The RB finds his lane. Consider this a free lesson.

  • RTF916

    “I don’t know how it works exactly but he know he’s wrong”

    That about sums up the intelligence of many commenters here.

  • Tony Its Time Sparano

    I’m thinking the Falcons & Bears go with defensive minded guys Rex Ryan & Todd Bowles. Buffalo will go with an “outside the box” HC candidate (like Marrone was) … i’m predicting Frank Reich

  • RaidingTexas

    Last i knew, no fan blog was intended to influence decision-making. If you’d rather talk about the playoffs that the Raiders missed for the 11th straight time, get your feet moving elsewhere.

  • FourMoreYears

    Just think of it like man and zone defense. You line up man to man, you have your guy and you take care of him. You play zone defense, you have an area of the field you’re responsible for.

    Same basic concept. Power you are responsible for a man, zone you’re responsible for an area. There’s a little (ok, a lot) more to it than that, but that’s the gist of it.

    If they win, they’re overachievers. If they lose, they’re losers. It’s a No-Win Blog, it is, it is.
