Jackson confirms he’s Raiders OC

Hue Jackson confirmed to the Baltimore Sun he accepted the position of offensive coordinator with the Raiders.

Jackson’s statement:

“After much consideration I have decided to accept a position as offensive Coordinator with the Oakland Raiders. I will miss the fans here and I thank them for all the encouragement and support they have shown me while I called Baltimore my home. I’d like to extend my deepest gratitude to Steve Bisciotti, Ozzie Newsome, Dick Cass and especially Coach John Harbaugh who brought me to Baltimore. Baltimore will always hold a special place in my heart and I’m especially thankful for the opportunities I’ve had to work with a world class organization, a top notch coaching staff and some of the best talent in the league.”

    If this offense tries to be the Air Russell show, it will fail MISERABLY!

    We need to FEATURE the running game!

    2 TE sets! 1 WR and a FB, single back, 3TEs!

    Play action off the run!

    Cable going back to focus soley on the Oline and handing out game balls should be a good thing!

    Step one: Take Cable’s offense away from him.

    Step Two: Ignore Cable’s claim that you can find ZBS linemen late in the draft or off the FA scrap heap and DRAFT SOME FUKING O-LINEMEN!!!!!

    Step Three: Forget about 2010 and start dreaming about 2012 cuz Cable is baaaaaack.

  • jhill

    can you create one for Cable & Russell?

    that would be interesting to see who’s right & wrong next year after we finish with 4 or 5 wins again.

    ——————————————————

    What does this even mean?

    Cable supports Jamarcus Rusell. That’s why he’s still the head coach. It was Hackett vs Russell!

    Why would anyone want Cable back?? Name one thing he improved.

    We are worse at rushing, and we still finished 5-11.
    We were 6th and 10th at rushing before Cable took control of the team.
    ================================================
    Good point Raider O. People say ‘well, we can’t run behind our O-line’ but they’re missing it entirely. They forget that we actually ran well behind this O-line at one point. It was Cable that made the commitment and said ‘you pass to win’. Not if you can’t pass, you don’t. Bunch of crap.

  • http://atm Raider O

    For a team that lacks talent, we have:

    1- Lechler is the best punter in the game. ( that really helps the D)
    2- Nnamdi The best CB IMO/ or Top 3 CBs.
    3- Seymour is in the top 10 for DTs, he shouldn’t play DE in the 4-3 scheme, but he is a great athlete that he can do it.
    4- TE Miller is one of the best TE in the game. Also top 10!

    Huff, Gallery, and Jano could be PBs soon. IMO

    Chaz, Bush, Mario, Murphy, Branch, TH, Scott, and Matt S player well for a group of young guys.

    We do need more Talent, but we are better than a 5-11 team!!

    Am I the only one who thinks JaMarcus’ weight issues are completely overhyped? He could come in 30 pounds lighter and it won’t make one damn difference if he doesn’t get control of the mental and technique aspects of the game.
    ==============================================
    I disagree. His weight issues are critical. If it takes him an extra second to drop back to pass, get the team and himself to the line, then his lack of being in shape are not overhyped but essential to his being a success. He is unable to learn proper technique due to being an In or Out MVP.

    Later Nation. I have to go study taxes. I hate acct! ( sorry RR)

  • Teabag

    I notice you didn’t list ONE thing HC related.

    The players choosing Cable over Russell doesn’t make Cable a good HC.

    The Steelers game? We got lucky. Grads flinging up a pass tha stayed in the air as long as a punt, and Murphy coming down with it was LUCK! Pitts DB dropping the game clinching pick was LUCK!

    Anyway …

    How about the decisions at the KR position? Nick Miller not IRs until week 16? Holland and Russell returning kicks?

    The Oline play?

    DHB?

    No backup OGs on the roster?

    No dime corner on the roster? Holland?

    No Mike Bush?

    Guys not in shape?
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^6

    Sure, the Nick Miller thing… that doesn’t fall on the team physician?? Surely, Cable can’t tell an injury and how serious it is.. He is just going off of what is advised to him..

    Holland and Russell…. did you have anybody better? Please tell me.. and don’t say Justin Miller please.

    What about the OLINE play?? again, talent is the issue here… Not Cable…

    DHB… what about him?? Do you really think that Cables hands weren’t tied to play DHB? That was a default decision beyond Cable.

    They had a backup OG on the roster… his name was Chris Morris. and seriously… DO you think a backup OG was a glaring problem with this team? If you are going to start pointing out this teams issues.. please don’t start at backup OG.

    Again, dime corner… same argument as OG applies… the pass defense was not an issue this season.

    Mike Bush… Mike Bush didn’t have a couple HUGE fumbles this season? Mike Bush is what he is.. a RB who has had a couple big games over his career but has not done much aside from that. Please don’t start the Mike Bush argument.. It’s very possible that the dude just isn’t that good.. For a 240 pound back he runs awfully soft.

    Guys not in shape.. again, where does player accountability come in? A HC is not a babysitter.. He isn’t a parent. And who wasn’t in shape? I didn’t see a problem with guys out of shape, except for one… And we all know the problem with that guy is the an in the mirror and him alone.

  • RaiderRockstar

    LOL. have fun Raider O!

    I know I am (sarcasm implied)

    wouldn’t you hate to be Al Davis’ bookkeeper as a Raider fan?

    you’d be reminded of every bad decision he’s made on a daily basis. Then he’d tell you to make room for more.

  • r8rpaver

    If we dont stop the run next year it wont matter who the HC or OC is

  • http://www.us.army.mil/ texguy

    Smart move by Al for once. If next year Cable fails again, he can just promote Jackson to HC to keep the continuity that Al loves so much.

  • inonewordraider

    LT-M Henderson
    RG- Gallery
    C- Satele
    LG- FA
    RT- 1st round pick

    let’s pick up the LG of Cable’s choice in FA for cheap and let’s finish up fixing our O w/ the best RT avail in round 1 and a FB in a late round. Yes you’re not supposed to get a RT that high but we drafted Jano in round 1

  • aig

    Good hire. Now we got a true brother that will get on Jawalrus’ rear ends. If the Raiders struggle in 2010 then I can totally see Cable being replaced by Hue. I like Cable as a HC but not as an OC.

    Teabag,

    you are correct that we need more legit talent in here. The most important areaa is our Oline. No one can seriously think we have legit Olinemen in there right now. We aint doing crap until we improve the Oline first and then the Dline.

  • jhill

    Teabag,

    We will just agree to disagree on Cable and his HC abilities.

    All I know is he now has nothing to do with the defense or offense, so I’m good.

  • The Big Banana

    Wonder what the first call between Jackson and Russell will sound like?

    Russell – “Yo, dis Dahmarcus phone. who be there”

    Jackson – “Hi, JaMarcus. This is Hue Jackson. I’m your new offensive coordinator.”

    Russell – “We got new offense coach? Yeah, baby. Man, them plays last year. No good. Too many cornerbacks in da way. Plays no good and everyone blame me.”

    Jackson – “Yeah, well, I plan on putting you in situations to succeed. But I wanted to talk to you about coming in and doing some offseason work”

    Russell – “Naw, that’s ok coach. King Elexis need to get fitted.”

    Jackson – “Oh, yeah. I heard about that. Congratulations. Well, after your event, we can get together to work on the new offense”

    Russell – “Naw, plans I got for more.”

    Jackson – “What was that son?”

    Russell – “Plans I got for more. Vegas going after. Homies party time are waitin for me.”

    Jackson – “Well, I’m really anxious to get you in here and start working on next year. The team is paying you quite a bit son. It’s time to put in some work”

    Russell – “Son who you callin’ me? Call you son, son! You better realize yourself better. Talk to Davis. This a business trip I’m on! This King Elexis. Talk can’t to me like that!”

    Jackson – SH1T!!!

    You mean someone would rather work in Oakland than with the Bears?

    I thought nobody would come here unless no other option was available.

    Isn’t that what everyone keeps saying?

    I guess some people were just WRONG!
    ==========================
    You need to pay attention just a little better.
    Comments tossed out, ad nauseum, was that no QUALITY HEAD COACH would ever choose to coach here.
    Granted, many have turned down positions as assts..I mean, after all, when you look at the hiring criteria:
    1. You only answer to Al.
    2. Only Al can fire you.
    3. Doesn’t matter what you game plan, Al will let you know what you should be thinking.
    4. Be able to take a right cross, and keep on ticking.

    What’s not to like?

    But it’s the position at HC that seems to have established top tier coaches avoiding like the plague.

  • RaiderRockstar

    re-sign UFA’s Seymour & Janikowski to long term lucrative deals.

    slap tender offers on Condo, Gradkowski, Howard, Losman, Routt & Morrison. no long term deals here. just let them stay 1 more season and either prove they deserve a big contract or prove they don’t. we can always use this year to find replacements and groom them as rookies.

    re-sign Frye, Alston & Brown if nobody else wants them in FA. we’ll get them for peanuts. Alston & Brown are solid on ST – but they should never start at LB

    I have a feeling we are going to see Cable have a lot of control of the Oline. I think that may have us seeing what a healthy Barnes can do at OT.

    LT – Henderson
    LG – Gallery
    C – Satele
    RG – Walker
    RT – Barnes

    Backups

    C – Morris
    G – Carlisle
    T – Pears
    T – Green

  • RaiderRockstar

    I would like to see Langston Walker signed and be inserted at the RG position.

    ***

    DMAC: you are like the 4th or 5th poster to mention this.

    why does everybody assume that Walker can play RG when he’s never done so in his career? He’s played LT & RT and then LG while Gallery was injured for all of 2 games last year until he got hurt himself …

    so 2 starts at LG means that you not only have LG locked down, but are solid at RG as well ???

    since when?

  • usmarine338

    by cable coming back that has to mean that JA-MAN-BOOBS is finally finished right?, please in the name of everything holy get rid of that bum, let GRADKOWSKI be the leader i think he has proven to be, the tean doesn’t respect JM , those three games GRADKOWSKI started we looked like a different team, i know alot of RAIDER fans say that if that bum starts again this year their done with going to the games. so AL please wake up and give the guy who deserves a chance

  • inonewordraider

    Give Seymour and Jano big money, re-sign Condo and Gradkowski, bring back Howard and Morrison but don’t overpay, the rest are expendable.

    1st round pick on best avail RT gives us a OL w/ potential for Cable to work w/ Henderson, Gallery, Satele, FA, 1st rounder

    Jackson has weapons in Mcfadden, Bush, Murphy, Schilens, Miller, DHB, Higgins

    Use picks 2, 3a, and 3b on DT LB and CB (in whichever order) and Marshall has plenty of talent to work w/
    Ellis/Shaughnessey, Warren/draftee, Kelly, Seymour, Howard, Morrison/draftee, Scott, Nnamdi, Johnson, Huff, Branch/Mitchell

  • RaiderRockstar

    Barnes never played RT his entire career until last season for a few games and he didn’t play any better than Green there. In fact he got pulled for Erik Pears (who also stunk up the joint – except as 2nd TE)

    Barnes, Green & Pears are all trash. Walker might be a better RT if he can get the zbs down. gotta be quick at tackle in the zbs. Walker is like a sloth

  • RaiderRockstar

    draft DL in Round 1
    draft OL in Round 2
    draft MLB in Round 3
    draft OL again in Round 3
    draft OL again in Round 4
    picks in Rounds 5 & 7 can be used on DB’s or maybe a new FB

    if Tebow is sitting there in Round 4 I gotta think we grab him though. Low risk, high reward. sort of like Bush & Murphy. nothing like Norris or Bowie!
