ALAMEDA, Calif. - Jack Del Rio picked the same offensive co-ordinator to start his tenure in Oakland as he did more than a decade ago in Jacksonville.Thats even after he fired Bill Musgrave two years into his stint with the Jaguars.Musgrave said Tuesday he harbours no hard feelings toward Del Rio over his firing 10 years ago and said he looks forward to working with Del Rio again with the Oakland Raiders.Jack and I are always pulling in the same direction, Musgrave said. We had some real positive times there in Jacksonville. ... I really learned a lot. I sure wish we would have won enough or won the tiebreaker to get in the tournament that year, but it didnt work out. Jacks very competitive, just as I am, so I definitely understood the decision.Musgrave helped develop Byron Leftwich after he was drafted in the first round by Jacksonville in 2003 and relied heavily on running back Fred Taylor, who rushed for 2,796 yards the two years under Musgrave.The Jaguars ranked 18th in the league in passing, 11th in rushing and 28th in scoring in Musgraves two years there with Del Rio and he was fired after the team went 9-7 in 2004.Since leaving Jacksonville following the 2004 season, he has had success at a variety of stops. He served as quarterbacks coach in Washington in 2005 when Mark Brunell helped the Redskins make the playoffs; spent five years as quarterbacks coach in Atlanta where he helped develop Matt Ryan; was offensive co-ordinator for three years in Minnesota, including when Adrian Peterson rushed for 2,097 yards in 2012; and quarterbacks coach in Philadelphia last season.Musgrave said he learned a lot from Eagles coach Chip Kelly and plans to incorporate some of the spread offence and hurry-up tactics that were so successful in Philadelphia if they fit the personnel in Oakland.Were going to do quite a bit if it fits what the players can do there in Oakland, Musgrave said. Were looking forward to getting out on the field in the spring and really finding out where their strengths lie. We talked about tailoring our system to fit them, but Ive got a hunch that a lot of the things we did here in Philadelphia will match up real nice and be effective.In five years as the play caller in Minnesota and Jacksonville, Musgraves teams always ranked in the top half in the league in percentage of run plays. The Raiders were last in that category last season under Greg Olson and would like to to do a better job establishing the run this season.The Raiders were one of the NFLs worst offences last season. Oakland finished last in total offence (282.2 yards per game), second worst in scoring offence (15.8 points per game), last in rushing offence (77.5 yards per game), and 26th in passing offence.Im definitely not going to come in with a system and force anybody to do something thats not natural, Musgrave said. Were definitely going to try to customize and tailor the Raiders system to fit the Raider players. Philosophically, I do believe in running the football. I definitely want to be a physical outfit that runs the ball and imposes their will on the defence.Despite the lack of production, Musgrave said he was attracted to the job because of the presence of quarterback Derek Carr. Carr started all 16 games and became the seventh rookie to top 3,000 yards passing and 20 touchdown passes in a season.Musgrave said he will be involved in filling out the rest of the offensive coaching staff. The team has already hired Mike Tice to coach the offensive line.Musgrave also served short stints as offensive co-ordinator with Philadelphia and Carolina before joining the Jaguars. He got his coaching start in 1997 as the quarterbacks coach in Oakland when Jeff George threw 29 TD passes and nine interceptions.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Sam Huff Jersey (http://www.theredskinsprostore.com/Authentic_Sam-Huff_Redskins_Jersey/) .

The judge has not yet ruled on prosecutor Gerrie Nels application that the court considers a period of mental evaluation for the world-famous runner. Dr. Merryll Vorster, a psychiatrist called by the defence, testified that a series of events in Pistorius turbulent life, including the amputation of his lower legs as a baby, his parents divorce, his late mothers habit of sleeping with a gun under her pillow and his own fear of violent crime contributed to his "increasing stress." "Overall, Mr. Pistorius appears to be a mistrustful and guarded person," Vorster testified. She said he has "many features of anxiety." Vorster said Pistorius anxiety combined with his physical disability may have caused him to act differently from other people when he shot four times through a toilet stall door in the early hours of Feb. 14, 2013, killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius, 27, claims he mistook Steenkamp for a dangerous intruder when he shot her with his licensed 9 mm pistol in the pre-dawn hours. Prosecutors say he killed the 29-year-old model after an argument and shot in anger and not fear last Valentines Day. Pistorius chief lawyer Barry Roux said at the start of defence-led testimony that the double amputees vulnerability and disability was at the centre of his case of a mistaken killing. But prosecutor Nel questioned Monday if Pistorius was merely trying one of a number of defences for shooting his girlfriend. "There must be some reason why Mr. Roux decided to call this witness. It might be the third defence that we have," Nel said. Pistorius, the first amputee to run at the Olympics, testified at his trial that he fired his gun accidentally at the toilet door. That aappeared to contradict his initial statement in court documents last year that he shot in self-defence because he believed his life was in danger.dddddddddddd Nel said if Pistorius had genuine anxiety issues, Judge Thokozile Masipa should order him to be evaluated. Responding to a question from a reporter after the trial was adjourned, Pistorius said "Go read the law." As the athlete sat in the Pretoria courtroom earlier Monday making notes and occasionally looking up at the witness stand, Vorster outlined his apparently unhappy childhood and a life story in contrast to the smiling, triumphant disabled runner who made history at the London Olympics in 2012. Vorsters testimony raised the question of whether Pistorius was now claiming "diminished responsibility" for the shooting, Nel said, because of a possible mental illness. Nel also asked the psychiatrist if someone who was suffering from such an anxiety disorder, and had access to guns, would be a danger to society. Vorster said the person would, indeed, be a danger. Vorsters testimony came at the start of the eighth week of the globally televised trial, and a day before Pistorius defence had predicted it might wrap up its case. It now appears unlikely that the defence will rest Tuesday. The prosecutions cross-examination of the psychiatrist could continue on day 31 of proceedings after Nel asked for more time to look at her report on Pistorius. Vorster reached her opinion after meeting with Pistorius on two occasions this month, and also from interviews with his family, friends and agent, she said. Pistorius and his brother and sister "were reared to see their external environment as threatening," Vorster said, and this played a part in his actions on the night of the shooting. Vorster said Pistorius was more likely to try and "fight" what he thought was an intruder than run away, because his disability meant it was harder for him to flee. Pistorius was on his stumps when he shot Steenkamp.
