Raiders had to cut Jack Del Rio after crazy 2017

Raiders had to cut Jack Del Rio after crazy 2017

What a fittingly wacky, entertaining way for the Oakland Raiders’ 2017 to end. The calendar-year started with a devastating loss to the Denver Broncos that cost the Raiders an AFC West title and a playoff home game. We should’ve known it was a sign of things to come.

 and to Del Rio’s credit,Jack Del Rio was canned on New Year’s Eve some 21 minutes after the final whistle blew in their 30-10 loss to the L.A. Chargers, he handled the news with class while he announced the news to the media.

But if the Jon Gruden rumors are true and he’s the next head coach of the Raiders (I’ve been told it’s a done deal by multiple sources), then 2018 is already on pace to be a rebound year.

 in the meantime,Mark Davis’ plan is to pull Gruden out of the commentating booth because it’s a splashy move that can get fans excited. While, he’s investing in a leader who can help ease the transition to Las Vegas.

So why ax Del Rio? Because he simply wasn’t able to take this franchise to the next level just like Mark Jackson with the Golden State Warriors.

 he walked into Alameda and helped get this franchise moving in the right direction,Sure, but he ran out of goodwill after he mismanaged this season.

 Del Rio rode the coattails of Derek Carr’s 2017 heroics and parlayed that into a contract extension. I’ve been told Del Rio lobbied hard for the new contract,First of all, and granting his wish was a mistake.

 this is the same coach who failed to win a division title in his tenure with the Jacksonville Jaguars,Don’t forget, so why did Davis give him the new deal prematurely? That’s a question Davis will have to answer.

Here’s what former Jaguars running back Fred Taylor had to say about his former coach, you never knew what you were getting. You don’t know if you’ll get a hard-ass one day, Del Rio: “With Jack, a buddy-buddy one day. You never really knew.”

Well, Greg Papa on 95.7 The Game, according to my partner-in-crime, nobody knew that Del Rio and his coaching staff would turn their backs on Carr, [url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/eli-rogers-jersey-cheap]Womens Stephon Tuitt Jersey[/url], lambasting him in front of the entire team after a late-season loss to Kansas City.

 Del Rio — during his weekly interviews with Damon Bruce — had no problem throwing players under the bus for blowing an assignment. And then there’s Vic Tafur’s latest piece for The Athletic,Heck, which quotes unnamed players questioning the leadership in Oakland’s locker room.

Hiring John Pagano in January of 2017 to NOT be the defensive coordinator was befuddling because he was obviously more qualified than Ken Norton Jr. Why hire Pagano just to start a power struggle? It made no sense.

And that wasn’t his worst decision regarding coordinators. Because there was no reason to fire Bill Musgrave when he had the Raiders offense humming as a top-ten unit. That led to the promotion of Todd Downing, who was so far in over his head as a first-year offensive coordinator.

The offense regressed and most importantly,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/jesse-james-jersey-cheap]Authentic Jesse James Jersey[/url], Carr, the face of the franchise, became broken down mentally and physically. Gruden’s No. 1 job will be to repair the franchise quarterback.

Leadership and accountability lacked with Del Rio in 2017, but on a team that doesn’t have much veteran leadership,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/eli-rogers-jersey-cheap]Authentic Eli Rogers Jersey[/url], and that was glaring from early in training camp. Marshawn Lynch did what he wanted on this team and that what makes him loveable, that can disrupt a locker room.

 and if history has taught us anything,The young stars on both sides of the ball took a step backward this year,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/eli-rogers-jersey-cheap]Authentic Stephon Tuitt Jersey[/url], it was that Del Rio is not the guy to turn that around.

The Giants on Monday submitted requests as expected to interview New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia and Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks for their head coaching vacancy.

They also will interview recently-fired Denver Broncos assistant head coach Eric Studesville, per 9News in Denver.

 with a connection to Giants GM Dave Gettleman from Carolina,The Daily News has been reporting for more than a week that McDaniels and Patricia were the Giants’ top two targets and that Wilks, would be a candidate.reported the Giants formally reaching out to the Patriots while NFL Network reported their request to the Panthers.

Studesville,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/alejandro-villanueva-jersey-cheap]Authentic Alejandro Villanueva Jersey[/url], who coached the Giants’ running backs from 2001-03 when Gettleman was working as the club’s pro personnel director, 50, worked for McDaniels in his only prior head coaching stint in Denver. Studesville then took over as interim head coach for McDaniels when the Broncos fired him in 2010.

 but with GM Rick Smith’s extended leave of absence,Houston coach Bill O’Brien was expected to be among the leading candidates if the Texans fired him, O’Brien is staying per the Houston Chronicle and so he will not be a part of the Giants’ search.

 but the Daily News reported the latter was not true,ESPN had reported Sunday that Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz would be interviewed and was a leading candidate, and as of midday Monday there were no reports of a Schwartz interview yet requested.

John Mara said last week that he wanted a coach who could stand up and “command the room” when he addresses the team. Giants veteran corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie appeared to allude similarly to Ben McAdoo’s shortcomings when asked how a coach can accomplish what Mara seeks.

“I think you just gotta mean what you say and say what you mean and hold everybody accountable,” Rodgers-Cromartie said Monday. “At first sight you see something wrong you correct it then. You don’t wait til you start losing or things of that nature. So I think it should be just straightforward from the moment you get here.”

The Patriots are on a bye week. The Giants will need to travel to Foxborough or Providence to interview both McDaniels, and Patricia, 41, 43, [url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/]Womens Chris Boswell Jersey[/url], and New England coach Bill Belichick will tell the Giants if and when they can interview them.

The Panthers face the New Orleans Saints on Sunday in the first round of the playoffs. The Giants must wait until after that game to interview Wilks if granted permission.

The Detroit Lions, also submitted a request to interview Patricia. Lions GM Bob Quinn was a 16-year Patriots employee/executive who rose to director of scouting for New England (2012-15). The Indianapolis Colts, who fired coach Jim Caldwell on Monday, who fired coach Chuck Pagano on Sunday, also submitted a request to interview McDaniels.

The Giants hired Dave Gettleman as GM last Thursday instead of waiting until the New Year to interview more candidates not just because they knew he was their guy; they also didn’t want to fall behind in a competitive coaching market that formed quickly on Black Monday.

The Giants fired Ben McAdoo on Dec. 4. On Sunday, the Chicago Bears fired John Fox, the Colts fired Pagano and the Oakland Raiders fired Jack del Rio. And then on Monday, the Lions fired Caldwell and Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians retired.

Almost all of the teams with head coaching vacancies reportedly requested an interview with Wilks, a former assistant head coach with both the Chargers and Panthers.

Both Studesville and Wilks would satisfy the Rooney Rule for the Giants, which requires NFL teams to interview at least one minority candidate for any head coaching or senior football operations vacancy.

Interviewing Studesville before the end of the week could make it possible for the Giants to come to an understanding with McDaniels immediately, though they can’t hire him until the Patriots are eliminated.

Who winds up being the first candidate interviewed this week remains to be seen, but it is believed Pace — along with Chairman George McCaskey and team President Ted Phillips — will meet with Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo on Friday in Philadelphia.

The Bears have also requested to meet with Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, according to the NFL Network.

 all interviews must be completed before the wild-card round ends. The Bears are also expected to interview Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks. Because the Panthers play at New Orleans on Sunday,Because those teams are idle this weekend, that interview must take place next week. Wilks was the Bears secondary coach under Lovie Smith from 2006 to 2008.

 has been lauded for his work with quarterback Carson Wentz. McDaniels,DeFilippo,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/anthony-chickillo-jersey-cheap]Womens Anthony Chickillo Jersey[/url], 41, 39, has five Super Bowl rings as an assistant with the Patriots and had a stint as the head coach of the Broncos. The Colts and Giants are also interested in McDaniels,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/jesse-james-jersey-cheap]Womens Jesse James Jersey[/url],and DeFilippo is also expected to meet with the Cardinals.

 sharp,“(DeFilippo) is the guy, really sharp. Like he’s the smartest guy in the room. He would be unbelievable with a young quarterback. Everywhere he’s been Flip has been good. High energy,” analyst Brian Baldinger said before the Bears-Eagles game in November when asked if there’s an up-and-coming candidate in the vein of Rams coach Sean McVay. “Sharp,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/eli-rogers-jersey-cheap]Womens Eli Rogers Jersey[/url],nonstop. If you’re looking, he’s head coach material.”

 who has been credited with the emergence of journeyman Case Keenum as a standout this season with an 11-3 record as a starter. The Vikings also excelled despite losing top running back Dalvin Cook,The Bears got a close look at Shurmur,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/]Authentic Chris Boswell Jersey[/url],and Shurmur has previous head-coaching experience with the Browns. The Cardinals and Lions are also interested in Shurmur.

 or any other candidate without an offensive background would have to present an overwhelming plan with a top-notch staff in order to get serious consideration in the end. It’s easy to read between the lines: The Bears want to take their rebuild to the next level with a hyperfocus on Trubisky’s development.,Pace emphasized the search, which he has been researching and doing background work on for some time, would be all-inclusive. Wilks,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/jordan-berry-jersey-cheap]Authentic Jordan Berry Jersey[/url], 48

 who became one of the top cornerbacks in the league.,Wilks has been poised for a promotion in Carolina for some time as the Panthers made contingency plans to lose former coordinator Sean McDermott well before last season. Coach Ron Rivera promoted Wilks with the title of assistant head coach in 2015 and Wilks is a high-energy coach with strong communication skills. He’s credited with the development of former fifth-round draft pick Josh Norman

Pace was complimentary of Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio but stopped short of saying if he would be considered as Fox’s replacement. He indicated college coaches could be considered in the search, but because of the recruiting ramifications for a college coach who flirts with the NFL,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/alejandro-villanueva-jersey-cheap]Womens Alejandro Villanueva Jersey[/url],  news of that nature likely wouldn’t leak unless a hiring became imminent.

 but chances are that would only happen if prospective candidates wanted an opportunity to get to know him. Previous experience as a head coach will not be a driving factor in the process.,Pace indicated the Bears could involve Trubisky at some point in the process

 and that’s what we’ll be looking for.”,“Good coaches have a way of developing young players,” Pace said. “They have a way of maximizing players’ strengths and kind of minimizing their weaknesses, and that needs to continue
