Thread: Buckner fired!!!

  1. #11
    With DL Coach Brentson Buckner being fired this is the 2nd straight year the Raiders lose their best defensive coach.

    Rod Marinelli has 9 years as a DC and finished top-10 in points in 5 of those seasons. If poor performance leads to an in-season DC change, he’s the likely pick

    This move doesn't make much sense on the surface. Either it's a move executed for the "Good old boys club" or hiring Marinelli puts Guenther on a short leash. Either way, what the hell has Marinelli accomplished in his most recent stints to justify bringing him on board? I'd love to hear some actual substance rather than FIB Savior type hype..

    That's a question for Gruden. Gruden had him in Tampa. When Gruden was hired, Marinelli was still with the Cowboys....he might have been Gruden's first choice Day 1 for DC, but he was contracted with Dallas. Those Dallas defenses, very inconsistent, Lawrence developed, Jones was moved between safety and corner, LBs pretty solid with Vander Esch and Smith. Outside looking in, he didn't maximize the latest group. I would not have made the move, given the strides that Hall and Hurst have taken in the first 2 years. Is there an under the table agenda for Guenther's seat?

    Under the table ? Doubt it. More than likely Gruden was unhappy with Buckner and told PG he was going to can him. What's PG going to say ? Keep Buckner or he's going to resign ?

    This way, Gruden gives his good friend and morning travel partner a gentle nudge and a reminder that the defense will improve or there will be more changes.

    Marinelli went to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1996 and was the defensive line coach for six seasons under head coach Tony Dungy. In the latter four seasons he also served as assistant head coach, winning a Super Bowl in 2003. He was known for his structured approach and his commitment for trying to get the most out of his players.[citation needed] There he worked to develop linemen such as Warren Sapp and Simeon Rice into Hall of Fame caliber players. During Marinelli's tenure in Tampa Bay, the Buccaneers earned more sacks than any other franchise.

    Chicago Bears

    Marinelli joined the Chicago Bears in January 2009 as assistant head coach and defensive line coach,[2] reuniting him with Lovie Smith, whom he worked with under Tony Dungy in Tampa Bay from 1996–2000.[2] Marinelli also interviewed with the Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks before joining the Bears. Marinelli was promoted from defensive line coach to defensive coordinator in February 2010.[3] In the 2010 to 2012 seasons, Marinelli's defenses ranked ninth, seventeenth, and fifth, respectively. Also in 2012, the Bears led the NFL in interceptions with 24,[4] along with in takeaways with 44, sixth in third-down efficiency (35.5 percent) and eighth in sacks with 41,[5] while ranking third with the fewest points allowed (477).[6] Marinelli left the Bears in January 2013.[7]
    Dallas Cowboys

    On January 18, 2013, Marinelli joined the Dallas Cowboys as defensive line coach.[8] Marinelli was promoted to defensive coordinator after the demotion of Monte Kiffin on January 28, 2014.

    The Cowboys posted a 12–4 record in Marinelli's first season as the defensive coordinator, his defense ranked 14th after being expected, by many before the season, to be the worst in the history of the NFL.[citation needed]

    On January 13, 2015, Marinelli signed a 3-year extension with the Cowboys to remain the defensive coordinator.

    Good post, Bass.

    Marinelli's resume is more impressive than Guenther's. Has PG ever coordinated even a top 20 defense ?

  7. #17
    So we are taking this defense from a PG rated Defense to an R Rated defense (get it? R for Rod).. ehhh.. I'm bored

    What has Marinelli done that past 5 years?

    Again, what has he done recently? I'm sure you'd agree, anything before 2015-2016 (half a decade ago) is irrelevant..

    Should have just canned Guenther then. Two seasons is more than enough time to know what you've got in a DC (can be interpreted as Defensive Coordinator and Derek Carr).
