Gruden hired PG in season replacement 

I feel like that too. Kindof what we did with Norton and Pagano.

I liked Buckner, but this is an upgrade. Marinelli is one of the best DC's in the business. He knows Gruden and is a fail safe if Guenther doesn't pull things together. Maybe can help Guenther with scheme even. Further, well respected by players in Dallas where a number of FA's are coming off that defense. 

I'm with you BP. Buckner seemed like a cool guy and did help progress our line. But Rod is a home run get for our DL group. I expect a big leap out of our guys.

I've heard Marinelli has been an elite DL coach for some time. Buck is a great dude and seems like a good coach, but if this guy can get even more out of our DL, I'm for it.

Should have fired whoever is our LB coach instead. Marinelli was Gruden's Dline coach in TB so it's just a move to get his buddy a job.

His buddy is one of the best DL coaches in the business though.

If you take the emotion out of it, this is an upgrade. Sucks for Buck, but this is a W

I wonder if Rod has any ties to free agents. I hope we are active on that front

I am not going to act like I know much about this but I have my reservations when it comes to Gruden making moves on the defensive side with coaches.  Especially ones that where doing a good job the prior year.

Byron Jones. Robert Quinn. Maliek Collins.

Exactly. Rod Marinelli is a great teacher on the Dline. He's a great DC if called to the job. He has a lot of respect and connections. He will be instrumental landing the Raiders a key free agent off the Cowboys defense.

I do not know much about Collins, Jones is great but big money, and I would rather not spend on Quinn.  I would rather pay Mayowa a 3rd of what Quinn is going to get.

I don’t think we’re all that big on Mayowa the way his snaps dwindled as the season went on even when he was getting to the QB. Dion Jordan will be brought back imo
