Finally, Oakland Raiders Defensive Coordinator Jason Tarver conducted an interview that aired on about the defense.  There’s something about Tarver that I really like.  He has that exuberance, that fire, and it’s exciting to listen to him.  I can only imagine how the players feel being coached by somebody that has command presence.  That’s what our defense needs, fire, excitement, drive, and watching Tarver’s interview shows me that he’s going to be bringing it this year.

Many of the same questions were asked about the defensive line, injuries, linebackers, etc…, and he answered them the way a coach should.  One question in the interview stood out, and it is easy to see which one it was by Tarver’s excitement.  The question; “So much has been talked about having Charles Woodson back here as a mentor and as an example, how much has he got left as a player?”

    If he fails twice in a row do we give him a 3rd chance??? We should of contacted Ryan to come back. Ryan has made a inferior Saints D look decent this off season. People can say Tarver/Allen didn’t have the pieces to be elite Defense/head coach, but you get paid to produce . I couldn’t imagine myself going into my boss’s office to explain my poor performance for a business quarter giving an excuse that I didnt have the pieces to be successful ? In preschool we learned “you get what you get & dont throw a fit”! What did Yoda tell Luke again???

    Use the force, Luke, use the force…

    Being “amazing” on the Raiders defense doesn’t mean much since they are terrible. And where was his “burst” when he was getting smoked by Kaep down the field last year.
