Don't be surprised if the Raiders interview Bruce Arians for their upcoming head coaching vacancy. Tom Cable is expected to get the ax because of the way that he handled Al Davis favorite JaMarcus Russell and Arians has a track record of developing quarterbacks.

The demand for Arians is low as is the list of individuals that would even consider taking a job with the Raiders.

Arians was the first NFL quarterback coach of Peyton Manning. He is credited for developing Manning in the early stages of his NFL career. Additionally, Ben Roethlisberger has enjoyed the two best statistical seasons of his career under Arians.

Al Davis could target Arians because of his track record with Manning and Roethlisberger. Additionally, Davis typically wants the Raiders to run a pass heavy offense.

Despite Arians' success as Steelers offensive coordinator, fans and the media are critical of his play calling. During the 2009 season, the Steelers performed poorly on third down and in red zone situations. Many sources claim that the criticism caused Arians to leak information related to his job security. The aforementioned information led some to believe that his firing was imminent.

Although the Steelers have decided to retain Arians for the 2010 season, he only has one year left on his contract and is rumored to want out of Pittsburgh.

Arians would be wise to accept an offer, even if it is from a dysfunctional franchise like the Oakland Raiders. His future in Pittsburgh is questionable and his market value could tank if the Steelers have a bad 2010 season.

In order to be interviewed a person has to be interested!! I do not see Arians wanting a head coaching job mainly because of health reasons.


Plus it's bleacher report.....I just don't see it happening

It's Oakland. He only has to worry about working there for a year or or less before crazy Al fires him and then he can retire.

What health concerns does Bruce have that would allow him to be an NFL assistant coach but would preclude him from a head coaching assignment?

Nothing short term..(he did have cancer tho)...IMO if you take a head coaching job your looking to do it for awhile and I actually saw him retiring soon.....maybe after next season

that's why it just doesn't make alot of sense to me....just my opinion

zulater
01-12-2010, 11:30 PM
So why does that make sense for him?

Because he's coming up on the last year of his contract and it's fairly obvious to most that he's not wildly popular within the orginization. With a Head coaching job he'll receive a minimum of a 3 year contract at a greater salary.

Plus Oakland truly has some talent if he can figure out a way to get Jamarcus out of the picture.

For the Raiders it makes sense because there will be very few with resumes comparable to Arains who would have any interest in the Raiders job.

Do I expect it to happen? No

But there's certainly a reasonable chance it could happen.

God bless him. But with had being the key word, I still don't see much difference between being a top assistant and the head coach in how that relates to his current state of health?

it makes total sense to me. al is crazy and senile enough to do it plus, i could see arians hop on the 1st plane to zimbabwe, if an nfl head coaching job awaited him when he landed.

word is, al davis was at the local caddilac dealership, shopping for a customised hearse, and the salesman told him he should probably consider bruce arians to resurrect jamarcus russells career. :hunch:

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/01/07/jim-harbaugh-a-stealth-candidate-for-bills-raiders-jobs/

There has been some speculation that the Buffalo Bills (who don't currently have a head coach) and the Oakland Raiders (who currently do) could be interested in hiring Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh.

A league source tells us that it's more than speculation; the brother of Ravens coach John Harbaugh is, we're told, a "stealth" candidate for both jobs.



The poster on raiders forums are getting there hopes up with some of the reports coming out from bloggers / twitterers / general net users / so called journalists.

I dont know who to believe now in the web 2.0 world.:noidea:

this is from dec....

"Though the rumor mill has been running full gear, my resolve and future proudly remains as head coach at Stanford University," Harbaugh said in a statement issued Saturday. "The reports of the last 24 hours are untrue, though I respect the University of Kansas and athletic director Lew Perkins.

"I trust this puts an end to these rumors and reports,

I think he (Harbaugh) has a good gig at Stanford. The raider nation fans are convinced that Al will go after a coach who has a good track record against USC ( dont ask me why). Apparently Sarkisian was another name.

Its hard to imagine who Al is going to convince to coach the raiders.

College coaching contracts aren't even worth the paper they're printed on, at least from the standpoint of inhibiting the coach's ability or willingness to leave.

That said, Harbaugh seems like too much of an up and comer to have any genuine interest in the coaching purgatory that is the Raiders job.

Guys like Arians, Brian Billick who can't beg a serious interview elsewhere, Dick Jauron, guys down to their last option would be the ones I envision actually having genuine interest in that job if it comes open.

Personally if I were them I'd keep Cable. But Cable wants no part of Crazy Al's pet project Jamarcus Russell.

Its possible... All most every single head coach hired under Al Davis has been offensive minded. (O-Cooridators, Oline Coaches, WR coaches etc)
I think it would be stupid if they hired Bruce, but hey, they can have him :P

Yeah, that'd be a great move, Al. Hire a pass-happy coach for a team whose only strength is the running game, and who has probably the worst starting QB in the NFL for at least a decade. Brilliant. Of course, that's kind of what Al Davis is known for these days.

Maybe I'm just being picky, but did the Raiders even fire their current coach yet? Or is everyone just kind of assuming that's going to happen.

what is this "gurus and braintrust" thing

There was a group, a clique, if you will, of group-think posters who decided that Arians had to go....they also seem to think Sweed is not a bust. I chided them a bit and adopted the moniker "braintrust" because they were so sure they knew better than the FO and pretty much considered their judgment above reproach. Since they knew best, and I was for sure "wrong", the deemed me "the guru".

Anyway, they decided that Arians had to go, and all sorts of chicanery and nonsense ensued...turns out they were wrong about that (and several other peripheral matters), and, well, that didn't sit too well with them. It's one thing to point out ill-formed opinion proactively, when nothing has actually been decided, but Lordy Lordy can a group of people get pissy when you tell them they are GOING to be wrong and then it turns out they are.

So, there's some sour grapes...to say the least.

We are supposed to drop the namecalling, but they are a little slow on the uptake on that one, too....

unfortunately theres a certain board dynamic that says bashing obama= good/ bashing arians = bad.

if there is such a problem, maybe the bashing of anyone should be banned, or the bashing of anyone should be allowed, while telling everybody who dont like it to quit complaining and grow some thicker skin. :hunch: (just an idea).

i dont think having a double standard of who is bashable and who isnt serves our MB community any good. this board is made up republicans and democrats, arians fans and non arians fans, steelerfans and non steelersfans, meat eaters and vegans, christians and non believers, etc.

some people are gonna have to come to grips with the fact that the steelers offensive results of '09 didnt meet the standards expected by the owners of the franchise, nor the majority of its fans.

i've even seen it suggested somewhere, and thought it was a splendid idea... that if you don't like the contents of a thread,or disagree with it then don't open it ...and i don't think its written anywhere in the coc that you have to reply to a thread or poster...what a novel idea ... if people would stop replying to threads they don't agree with and pushing thier opinions like its the gossple then i guess there wouldn't be said warzones.

What the hell does politics or those political threads have to do with this? This is the Steelers forum - political discussions don't belong here.

This is the Steelers forum - political discussions don't belong here. none the less its the SAME people posting in the steelers forum as the locker room. so when those same people criticize other posters for the exact same behavior that they engage in themselves, even if it is on a different subject...it kinda comes off as a bit hypocritical don't ya think ?

so would it better if non arians supports stuck to phrases like ..."bend over and grab your ankles" ,....would that be more acceptable ?

Nevermind. I was going to answer, but why bother? I'm sick of the whole damn thing, to be quite honest.

Yep, it really isn't worth it at this point.

exactly !!! your opinion isn't going to change mine, and my opinion isn't going to change yours... the only difference is i'm not going to frustrated and act all butt hurt because i can't get you to agree with me.. i find it hilarious when people have to go on record to show thier "board frustrations" , with goofey statements like " i can't take this place anymore" , or " i need a break from here".... :toofunny: ...its just as easy to not log on as it is to not reply.... and if a mb full of strangers can bother you that much...maybe you should give up on posting...:noidea:

I don't understand how you think it was vicious? If you think I meant actually "shooting" him, that's not what I meant. My comment was meant that if they are targeting him as an option, then pull the trigger and hire him. In no way did I mean an actualy physical shooting. Sorry if it came across that way.

It's hard to imagine someone could really take that literally. :doh::chuckle:

Amen. I think the first time you find yourself tempted to put someone on ignore you're a victim of message board fatigue and proably need to take a walk or something. :chuckle:

no doubt... the people who are the top candidates for others to put on ignore, are the ones i laugh at the most... i find it very ammusing when people take themselves so seriously.

WHOOOOSH!!!!

but you did bring up a "war zone" in this thread, did you not?

this isnt the war thread, therefore you cannot use that as an analogy, metaphor or even an example. :coffee:

Rather than accept being wrong on matter A, it's easier to deflect and point out other area's where they were a little less wrong...in this case, matter B being Obama's election...which has been so very great for the Country so far, I might add...

Typical deflection. Predictable and boring....don't man up....simply point out examples of others being wrong, and cry REALLY hard and loud about it.

This wouldn't be so bad if the people who are on the wrong side of this argument would have had a little decorum about it all leading up to them being 100% completely full of shit, but.....no....it went around, and it comes around. I'm enjoying watching them whine and squirm right now....
