assistant coach more than a decade ago Color Rush Chidobe Awuzie Jersey , his father, Mike, called Jon Gruden and asked him to hire his son for an entry-level job in Tampa.Shanahan joined the Buccaneers as a quality control coach in 2004 on Gruden's staff and got his introduction to pro football on a staff that featured five assistants who have gone on to get head coaching jobs in the NFL."It was such a good place for me to go to because Jon was doing everything," Shanahan said. "It wasn't just his stuff. He was always on top of it with the film, which everyone is now because of the computers and everything, but he was one of the first guys doing that stuff, probably being a little bit younger than most guys at that time and just introduced me to pretty much every play known to man."Now 14 years later, Shanahan gets his first chance to coach against his old boss when the San Francisco 49ers (1-7) host Gruden and the Oakland Raiders (1-6) on Thursday night.Gruden said he took great pride in that staff that featured Mike Tomlin, Rod Marinelli, Jay Gruden and Raheem Morris during Shanahan's two seasons there in 2004-05. The Bucs won just five games the first season before winning the NFC South with an 11-5 record in 2005."We had a lot of fun back in those days. The woodshed, I called it," Gruden said. "People are going to take me to the woodshed here pretty soon, if we don't get this thing going."Both the Raiders and 49ers are struggling heading into this matchup, with Oakland losing three straight and San Francisco on a six-game skid.Shanahan has struggled without starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, while Gruden's return to the NFL has been rocky after nine seasons as a broadcaster at ESPN.But Shanahan believes Gruden will turn the Raiders around if given time and sees no signs that the game has passed him by."Jon lives and dies football," Shanahan said. "He never got away from it. He probably had even more time to sit and look at everything Color Rush Joe Looney Jersey , and not get so caught up in his own team. The whole league's evolved since then. It evolves year to year. But, you watch his system, he has a foundation of what he used to do and things like that, but he's kept up with everything."Here are some other things to watch:BEATHARD'S HEALTHThe 49ers could be forced to go with their third-string quarterback this week. Garoppolo went down with a season-ending knee injury in Week 3 and backup C.J. Beathard is questionable this week with an injured right wrist. The next man up is Nick Mullens, who has never taken a snap in the NFL. Mullens spent last season on the practice squad and was promoted after Garoppolo's injury this year. He has impressed his teammates with strong play in the preseason and practice."He's a baller," running back Matt Breida said. "He doesn't let the game get too big for him. I think he'll do a great job if he has to play this week."DRIVE THE CARRRaiders quarterback Derek Carr is coming off perhaps his best game of the season, throwing for three touchdowns and running for a fourth score in last week's loss to the Colts. Carr completed 17 straight passes at one point and thrived in his first game after leading rusher Marshawn Lynch went down with a groin injury and No. 1 receiver Amari Cooper was traded to Dallas. Receiver Brandon LaFell, who wasn't targeted at all in his previous two games for Oakland, had three catches for 39 yards and a TD after getting the start in place of Cooper."He's friendly to the quarterback," Carr said. "He always runs friendly routes. He can play with anybody. I'm glad that we had some time to work and all those things, but he's the kind of guy that you can just throw him in and just play."SAFETY DANCEThe Niners go into this game thin at safety. Starting free safety Adrian Colbert is on injured reserve with an ankle injury and San Francisco could be without its top two strong safeties as well. Starter Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) and backup Antone Exum (concussion) are out this week. Jimmie Ward fared well last week at free safety after moving over from cornerback. San Francisco is thinner at strong safety with Tyvis Powell, who has never started a game, and rookie Marcell Harris, who could be activated from IR to make his debut, the main options.DYING RIVALRYThis will be the final scheduled meeting between these Bay Area rivals before the Raiders move to Las Vegas in 2020. The teams have rarely been successful in their 36 seasons as NFL neighbors here with both making the playoffs in the same year only four times in that span (1970, '72 Color Rush Taco Charlton Jersey , 2001, '02). The teams have combined for a winning record just once in 2003 and are on pace for the worst record for a two-team market since the 1970 merger.Pro Football Focus ranks all 32 team’s offensive line: Where did the Cowboys end up? The Dallas Cowboys are struggling on offense this season. If you look at the numbers, it’s a little discouraging.There are lot of different theories going around as to why this offense is playing so poorly. Most of it centers around the play of quarterback Dak Prescott. Our own Connor Livesay does a great job of breaking down his mechanics and how they are contributing to his sub-par play this season. Some of the criticism is directed at the play-calling, including comments made by Cowboys receiver Allen Hurns. Even the receivers themselves have been under fire to where Hurns and even Cole Beasley have felt compelled to defend the position group.While all these factors play a part in the poor play of the offense, another group also shoulders part of the blame - the offensive line. The Cowboys have invested quite a bit into their offensive line over the years with four players - Zack Martin ($14 M), Tyron Smith ($12.2 M), Travis Frederick ($9.4 M), and La’el Collins ($7.7 M) accounting for nearly one-quarter of the team’s salary cap resources. And let’s not forget they just used a second-round pick on rookie Connor Williams in April’s draft. Expectations are that this group performs at a high level or else they are mismanaging their financial resources.Unfortunately, life gave them some lemons when Travis Frederick was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome, an auto-immune disease that affects the nervous system. Frederick was placed on injured reserve last weekend, keeping him out for at least the next seven weeks.With Frederick out, backup center Joe Looney has been filling in and he’s been solid this season. Pro Football Focus recently ranked the offensive line of all 32 NFL teams so far this year. The top 10 are as follows:1. Los Angeles Rams2. Philadelphia Eagles3. New Orleans Saints4. Green Bay Packers5. San Francisco 49ers6. Detroit Lions7. Tennessee Titans8. Washington Redskins9. New England PatriotsAnd rounding out the top 10 are our beloved...This is a fair assessment of the Cowboys offensive line. Zack Martin has now emerged as the team’s best offensive linemen. Despite J.J. Watt notching a rare sack against him on Sunday night, those two exchanged blows all night with Zack winning his fare share of battles. Here, he gives J.J. a little nudge just to let him know he’s thinking about him.While Martin has been a model of consistency, the same cannot be said for the other remaining All-Pro lineman still suiting up for them. Tyron Smith has been good at times, but also shaky at times. He already has three penalties on the season with a hold http://www.authenticsdallascowboys.com/cheap-antwaun-woods-jersey , false start, and illegal block in the back. Speaking of penalties, La’el Collins is getting flagged almost every game. He already has been called for four holding penalties (two have been declined) as well as a false start. What is odd is that the interior line, with two new pieces, have shown more discipline that the veterans out on the edge. The only penalty the inside guys have comes from the rookie Williams.The Cowboys offensive line is not as dominant as they once were. That was never more evident when Jason Garrett opted to punt on fourth down in overtime against the Houston Texans. In past seasons, he wouldn’t have thought twice about running down the defenses throat with an offensive line that could impose it’s will on their opponents. Of course the offensive line is only a part of the Cowboys offensive woes, but they are definitely a part of it. A top 10 unit is still pretty good, but pretty good won’t cut it. They need to be outstanding. We know it’s in them because we’ve seen it. They played extremely really well against Detroit and the result was the team’s only 400+ offensive performance of the season. It’s going to be a challenge for this group with each new game, especially with some of the tough defensive fronts they’ll face this season. Defenses are really coming after Ezekiel Elliott. And they know that anytime they get pressure on Prescott, the Cowboys offense usually sputters. But if the Cowboys can survive and stay in the NFC East hunt, help should eventually be on the way. Frederick was asked by 105.3 The Fan about the decision to put him on IR and his outlook for when he might be able to return.If Frederick is ready when his eight weeks are up, then that puts him back on the field when the Cowboys host the Philadelphia Eagles. That’s a big game. It would sure be nice if the Cowboys had the better offensive line on that day. The season might depend on it.
