ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Raiders have interest in Stanford defensive coordinator Jason Tarver regarding the same role in Oakland.

Tarver is actually co-defensive coordinator at Stanford and also oversees the Cardinal’s inside linebackers. At Stanford, Tarver helped replace Vic Fangio, who left to join Jim Harbaugh’s 49ers staff in 2011. Ironically, the 37-year-old Tarver spent the previous decade working in the Niners’ organization as an outside linebackers coach and offensive assistant.

The Raiders have also shown interest in Packers cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt Jr. for the defensive coordinator job vacated by Chuck Bresnahan’s expired contract.

    I guess this is what Rich Gannon meant when he said the Raiders should blow up and start all over.

    Let’s see if it’s true that “the Raiders will NEVER win until Al Davis is gone” comments were true

    Really his contract was void because Bresnahan isn’t truely alive. A sack of potatoes. Just like his “defense”.

    My sister coordinating the D is an upgrade.

    check the bres 2000-2003 run homie,

    i didnt know ur sister coordinates

    at 23,

    rich gannon what?

    Al’s team put them in the SB, and he tanked,

    win until Davis gone?

    he had them in the show, what more can a QB ask for,

    no one wanted the guy, Al took a chance on him, he should be grateful and never make those comments, and neither should you.

    Al is the Raiders.

    Chargers like this move. It will take even a talented young guy a couple years before he adjusts well enough. The Bolts look to sweep the Raiduhs in 2012!

    “Chargers like this move. It will take even a talented young guy a couple years before he adjusts well enough. The Bolts look to sweep the Raiduhs in 2012!”

    The chargers are destined for mediocre retaining Norv Turner. Also if the Raiders loose to the Chargers Reggie McKenzie will eat Rivers whole and later have himself a Tebow snack.

    Lets just hope the AFC west becomes the division to beat once again. Last season was weak and I am tired of these east coast teams dominating into the Superbowl.

    You wish graysolon.

    More like Raiders sweeping the bolts next season, we have the players, just need to teach them.

    Mjs takin names…
    Hmmm the roster in 2000-3 was tad different. Im not gonna go thru the depth chart but it was anchored by this guy Charles Woodson..

    However, if we’re gonna talk about the past let’s look at the last 8 games played and awesome defensive schemes like putting a slow MLB on one the best WRs in the league. He was Al’s “Yes Man” and thats it.

    I didnt think there was one Bresnahan fan out there I stand corrected. Your football IQ must be through the roof.

    I would like to add i do agree, MJ, with your rich gannon statement.

    RG should feel indebted to Al- he took a chance on him when the league concluded him as a clipboard-holder

    Oh please greysolon, the greatest news this off-season for the Raiders, Bronocs and Chiefs was the dolts once again inexplicably retaining the services of Norv Turner and AJ Smith. Look for the dolts slide into obscurity to continue.

  11. r81ders says: Feb 4, 2012 8:08 PM

    Greysolon are you even of age to post on here, the chargers did us all a favor keeping the circus in SD. I also heard Norvs pushing hard to put a rainbow over the bolt for the new logo.

    Gannon was not at fault for the superbowl beating, and neither was Al…at least not directly. Dumbass Callahan never changed the f-ing playbook. Genius. That’s why all of his teams suck. He is a moron. How did that move to the collegiate ranks work out for him. Yep, that’s right…he dismantled another competitive program. Gruden must have been in absolute disbelief by the end of the first quarter. Maybe this is rumor, but something clearly looked very off on the field. That would sure explain a lot of it. Either way, our boys never stood a chance. Gannon played well for us, Al and Gruden built a competitive team, and Callahan blew it for us. That being said…Gannon should be much more respectful of the organization that made him relevant. You can be impartial as a commentator or analyst or whatever he is pretending to be now, but you don’t have to be a straight donkey. Those days are far behind us anyway. I would like to see Donatell get a look, but judging by this article, we were likely denied…by him…or the niners. Oh well, drive on.

    Someone needs to find out what Winston Moss thinks about all this. His name fell into an oblivion. Unless Ryan doesn’t want anyone breathing down his neck. I say go for the GB corners coach.

    Leave no stone unturned Mr McKenzie

    makes sense…Allen will be the defacto Dcord…just have a young/hungry college cord helping.

    Didn’t the Ducks put up 53 points on Stanford this year? USC put up 48, and Oklahoma State put up 41? And this guy was the Co- Defensive Coordinator?

    Great, just great.

    Unfortunately with Harbaugh having left for the 49er’s it’s only a matter of time before Stanford football reverts back to mediocracy. Any asst. coach that has a chance to move on should do so.
