Oakland Raiders News: Linehan Gives The Niners The Boot, Then Wants To See If The Silver and Blue Shoe Fits

UPDATE: It appears that he will instead be running the Detroit Lion offense. It makes sense and it appears that they will definitely be drafting a QB. Than again, that second bit of news shouldn't be a surprise, even Mel Kiper knew that.

WOW, is all that I can say. After losing Tom Rathman to the Niners, I was beginning to think that coaches may see the Niners as a more attractive fit than the Raiders.

For those of you who didn't know, according to Niners Nation Linehan turned down the Niners offer to take over the offense and may want to join his College Teammate Tom Cable in Oakland.

Part of me wonders if this is similar to Al's decision to pass on Sarkisian for the man Sark wouldn't shut up about. Lane Kiffin. This seems too similar, seeing that Saunders just interviewed and then Linehan just showed up.


So, this is of course nothing until John Herrera confirms it, BUT, what about Linehan?
