Surprising since defense was the issue for the Raiders, not offense. 6th ranked offense in NFL. QB coach Todd Downing expected to replace him. He was Bills QB coach in 2014.

Add him to the list then.

Wonder why?

Considering this is the NFL, is wager it had nothing to do with the product on the field. That is, his ego hurt another, more powerful, man's ego.

Maybe they were afraid Downing was going to get another job and wanted to keep him paired with Carr.

hard to imagine they'd do this without Carr's blessing

While I'm sure they may have asked for his input, I doubt they asked for his blessing. He's not that accomplished (yet).

I've seen some media tweets to that end. Makes sense.

 

@caplannfl

On QBs coach Todd Downing, coaches were told within last hour or so that he was being promoted to OC.

 

Thoughts on Musgrave out: He did a solid job. JDR wants more out of the offensive personnel, especially RBs. More creativity.

 

It's not often an offensive coordinator from 12-4, playoff team is not retained, but JDR wants more out of offensive personnel.

 

Musgrave will have options elsewhere. His contract was up and was not renewed.

He's only had one year where he had a "successful" offense. JDR did him a favor letting him look for another job coming off last season.

 

For some unidentifiable reason, I feel this is where Lynn ends up.

As? Upthread it suggests Downing will be OC.

You know what's really funny? Tom Clements the Assistant HC/Offense for GB Packers used to be on our staff. As did Alex Van Pelt. We all know AVP. Also note that GB coveted JP Losman. They considered Aaron Rodgers the consolation prize.

This is why we can't have nice things...

Clements called the plays for a spell last year. That didn't go well.

I said unidentifiable. I don't know. It's just a gut feeling.

And if GB had drafted Losman, he'd probably be a Superbowl-winning, All-Pro, future Hall-of-Fame, State Farm Spokesman quarterback too.  And Rodgers would have flamed out with the Bills.

Doesn't matter how accomplished he is. He's clearly the face of the franchise and the leader of that offense. They'd need him to sign off on that kind of move.

They may have solicited Carr's opinion but that's it. 'Sign off' means he could say no and change the decision and no player has that power.
