It’s getting pretty heated out here. Thursday ex-Raiders DB coach Rod Woodson appeared on FS1’s Undisputed and ripped his former team from everything from giving Jon Gruden a big contract, to replacing wide receiver Michael Crabtree with Jordy Nelson, to saying the team was soft.

“Crabtree was the glue to that offense,” Woodson said. “He gave them a backbone. He gave them toughness. Jordy Nelson’s not gonna give them that. Derek Carr’s not gonna give them that.”

The most positive words Rod Woodson could muster up to say about the defense was that Khalil Mack is an “above par player” and that Bruce Irvin is “Inconsistent.”

Friday morning, Irvin, who shared a defense with Woodson the past two years, got on twitter and made his feelings known.

Without saying his name, Irvin called out Woodson for basically throwing his former players under the bus.

Then he took it a step further, saying that Woodson would be one of the first coaches to leave each day.

I guess one good turn deserves another. Ah, drama.
