Raiders Fire Hue Jackson

hugh> sing

he actually knows x's and 0's and can come up with offesnsice gameplan

the biggest problem was his defense (not his fault) and discipine (penalties) - totally his fault
They should try to go after Jeff Fisher. I think he'd do wonders for that team.

Had Campbell not been injured there is no Carson Palmer trade

i agree. he did let his ego unchecked but with all that happened this season (as pointed out in your post) he still had them in position to win the AFC West.

I think the reason for the firing is deeper than the results that Jackson produced, but rather his "I am running things around here" type of attitude.

When you get hired as a GM to run a team, the last thing you want is a head coach with that kind of swag.

Think Jim Harbaugh, pure footall dude.

yea but when Al passed the WHOLE organization looked to Hue for leadership. Mark Davis and Amy Trask sure as hell didnt know what to do. Everyone turned to Hue to keep the ship right. I agree that the Palmer trade was bad, but Hue was grasping for straws through all the injuries. Once Hue had to start playing GM is when things started to go south. But that shouldnt all be on him. Trask and Davis need to hold some accountability.

Yeah I agree with that. I'm just speaking from a GM standpoint. If they hired me to run the Raiders, last thing I would want is a coach who "comes off" as if he wants to run things.

And you're right, Hue Jackson was given the keys once Al died, and he called the shots to reel in Palmer, and he was damn proud of that from what I remember, and I think that boosted his ego. I feel like that's what separates Mckenzie from Jackson.

Wow just saw Reggie McKenzie's new conference on Sports Center not a very engaging type. Hopefully he is just really smart but not the best articulating it.
Hue got a raw deal ...Oakland will regret this one day, Hue Jackson is a good dude, he didnt deserve to take all of the blame for the teams collapse

Like I understand, it is not only about the collapse or the laughable Palmer-trade, it's about his "I want more/all the power"-thing. Hue talked himself out of the job.
At the end of the day, he was 8-8 in a season with their starting QB and RB out. His offense wasn't necessarily the problem, the defense was.

That's true and that's something I said some pages before. There is also a concern that he lost his players...If the Raiders won the game against the Chargers, they would have won the division and were in the playoffs. But they didnt and some people saw that his players didnt put all of their 100%-effort on the field...
I always say that it is one thing if your team is losing due to usual reasons like injuries or just bad performances by key players. If the GM has a little bit patience and trust, he won't fire anyone. But if you start talking s**t and/or lost your players, a firing is the only solution.

Anyone watch the McKenzie press conference? From a strickly eye test he didn't pass to me. First he isn't well spoken. Not really a big deal I guess. But he also looked to be extremely out of shape. He was sitting there with his mouth open (mouth breather) with a dumb look on his face.

Like i just said he better be really smart because he wont be able to charm reporters.
He's back with Cincy as an assistant coach

"Good Morning, Mr. Jackson. The man you are looking at is Carson Palmer, our useless QB who has decided to retire than play for our own team, the Cinncinati Bengals. As you know, we will be drafting this man, Andy Dalton, a fire-headed talent that we expect to start for us immediately. Your mission, Hugh, should you choose to accept it, is to infiltrate another vulnerable NFL team either as assistant or head coach, and design a blockbuster trade will dump Palmer and allow us accumulate all of their first round draft picks. As always, should any member of your team be caught or fired, the Commissioner will disavow all knowledge of your actions. This message will self-destruct in five seconds. Good Luck, Hugh."
