Paul Guenther is installing a new defense for the Oakland Raiders with the most important part of the unit missing.

Star pass rusher Khalil Mack remains away from the Raiders in a contract dispute this offseason while Guenther works on rebuilding a defense that has been one of the league’s worst for more than a decade.

”He’s going to have a lot of catching up to do http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jordan-whitehead-jersey ,” Guenther said Tuesday.

”We’re going to have to have a plan for that for sure. I’m really concerned about the guys that are here now working. These guys have been busting their tails every day. Coming in early. Meeting with the coaches. Being great in the meeting rooms. Communicating on the field.”

Mack, the 2016 AP Defensive Player of the Year, is entering the last year of his rookie contract that pays him $13.85 million this year and is seeking a long-term deal that will make him one of the most highly compensated non-quarterbacks in the NFL.

Mack has missed the entire voluntary portion of the offseason and has not indicated whether he plans to report for next week’s mandatory minicamp or risk fines of more than $80,000.

Guenther’s focus now is on the defenders who are at practice this offseason.

”I’m trying to get the guys that are here better,” he said. ”These guys have been busting their tails, trying to get better. Trying to make the team. There’s some guys out there that I really think have a lot of uncovered ability.

”We’re trying to get it out of them to understand, `Hey, you might not be a 60-snap-a-game guy. You might be a 15 snap-per-game guy, do the best job in your role and how you can help us win.”’

Guenther was one of Jon Gruden’s first hires after being brought back for a second stint as coach in Oakland back in January and immediately given a tough task.

The Raiders defense has consistently been one of the league’s worst the past 15 years under coordinators Chuck Bresnahan Cheap Sam Darnold Jersey , Rob Ryan, John Marshall, Jason Tarver, Ken Norton Jr. and John Pagano.

Oakland ranks last in the NFL in takeaways and points allowed in that span, second worst in yards allowed per game and third worst in sacks as the unit has struggled consistently from the front seven to the secondary.

Guenther’s defenses in Cincinnati have been some of the best in the league during his time as coordinator there.

”Paul Guenther’s defense, it’s very aggressive,” new middle linebacker Derrick Johnson said.

”So many different looks. The onus is really on the linebackers to learn a lot of stuff. That’s good for myself because I know a lot. It’s putting a lot of pressure on me to learn it quickly.

”Learn it well enough where I can put my own flavor in making plays on this defense. I’m having fun with it now. The last couple of days have been my best days, running around. … Once you can get it down really well, you’ll look a lot faster out there on the field. We all can run fast and jump high http://www.cardinalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-christian-kirk-jersey , but mentally, once you got it down, all your abilities, your talents can show out there on the field. That’s what we’re doing right now. We’re not there yet, but we’re getting there.”

Last year was particularly bad when the Raiders became the first team to fail to intercept a pass for the first 10 games of the season and had just 14 takeaways all season.

To change that, the Raiders have made significant changes in personnel this offseason, bringing in Johnson to anchor the middle of the defense along with new linebackers Tahir Whitehead and Emmanuel Lamur; drafted Maurice Hurst, P.J. Hall and Arden Key to boost the pass rush; and signed defensive backs Rashaan Melvin, Daryl Worley http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-mark-andrews-jersey , Marcus Gilchrist and Leon Hall.

Oakland is also hoping to get a boost with healthy seasons from last year’s top two picks, cornerback Gareon Conley and safety Obi Melifonwu, who were limited to 127 defensive snaps as rookies because of injuries.




Heading into Game 3 of a first-round playoff series, the San Jose Sharks attribute their success to attention to detail and a hard-nosed mindset that won’t allow them to be pushed out of games.

Meanwhile, the Anaheim Ducks are looking for their best players to help get the offense back in gear before becoming an opening-round afterthought.

San Jose looks to move within a win of advancing to the second round on Monday night against Anaheim at SAP Center.

The Ducks claimed home-ice advantage in the first round by winning 10 of their final 12 regular-season games to finish one point ahead of the Sharks. But winger Logan Couture said San Jose met an early objective after winning twice in Orange County.

“That was the goal coming in, to win the first one and not be satisfied with the split,” he said.

Martin Jones was key to the Sharks’ wins at Honda Center. He turned aside 25 shots for his fifth career playoff shutout in a 3-0 Game 1 victory on Thursday. After giving up a goal on the first shot he faced in Game 2, Jones finished with 28 stops in a 3-2 victory on Saturday.

Jones has won at least 30 games in each of his three seasons with San Jose under Peter DeBoer, who has come to expect that consistency.

“Jonesy’s been a rock for us this time of year http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-korey-toomer-jersey ,” DeBoer said Saturday.

Now the series shifts to Silicon Valley, where the Sharks won 11 of their final 16 games en route to a 25-13-3 record. San Jose is 22-14 all time in Game 3s — including 13-7 at home — and Anaheim is 15-13.

“We’re a tough team to play against. You’ve got to earn your way to beat us in a game,” DeBoer said.

Ducks defenseman Brandon Montour is aware of the challenge.


“We’ve been down two (games) before,” he said. “They’ve got to win four. The series isn’t over. San Jose’s got a tough building and we’ve got to go in and match that.”

San Jose went 1-0-1 at home against Anaheim in the regular season. On Nov. 4, Joonas Donskoi notched the game-winner in the sixth round to give the Sharks a 2-1 win.

Just over two weeks later, the teams went to a nine-round tiebreaker and Antoine Vermette beat Jones to give the Ducks a 3-2 victory.

Jones has yielded only eight goals in his last four home games against the Ducks but has a 1-2-1 record.

However, Jones and the remainder of San Jose’s defense are keeping Anaheim’s top players in check. Wingers Rickard Rakell and Corey Perry don’t have any points and a combined five shots on goal.

Hampus Lindholm — one of four Ducks defensemen with at least 30 points this season — leads the team in scoring with a goal and an assist. No other blue liner has a point.

“We have to go out there and outwork them, and get those wins that are going to be huge for us,” Lindholm said. “All year here Clint Frazier New York Yankees Jersey , people have been counting us out a lot of times. We’ve been stepping it up here when we need it the most, so I believe in this group here.”

Another player who has struggled is Anaheim goaltender John Gibson, who has stopped 63 of 69 shots. But coach Randy Carlyle doesn’t plan on changing things and will stick with Gibson even though Ryan Miller has 28 career playoff wins.

“When you play 82 games, there’s lot of reset buttons that have been hit over the course of the season,” Carlyle said. “We understand the desperation that’s going to be necessary for us to go in and play well in their building.”

Gibson was 12-8-4 with a 2.41 goals-against average and .924 save percentage in 25 road starts this season. His only career start in San Jose came Oct. 25, 2016, when he gave up a goal to Marc-Edouard Vlasic 84 seconds into overtime of a 2-1 loss.

Game 4 is scheduled for Wednesday night in San Jose.
