Raiders statement

The following statement was issued by the Raiders:

The Oakland Raiders are pleased to announce that Hue Jackson has joined The Oakland Raiders coaching staff as Offensive Coordinator. Jackson is a veteran assistant who has vast experience as an offensive coordinator both at the college and National Football League levels.

Jackson, who most recently as Baltimore’s quarterbacks coach helped the Ravens advance to the postseason in 2008 and 2009, is excited about the opportunity to join the Raiders. Jackson and Coach Cable previously worked together on two college staffs – as assistants at Cal State Fullerton in 1990 and at the University of California in 1996.

    “Well, if all it takes to motivate Russell is a black guy, why not Gary Coleman?”

    Gary Colemen would be cheaper than Jackson!
    =================================
    Gary Coleman was a BASEBALL manager. Get your movies straight. Besides, I think he just landed in front of a judge this past weekend. Hue must be second choice.

    AL over pays players he likes, he gave Kelly, CJ, Walker, Asmough, Lechler, etc it is always an indication that he want those players to remain in the Raiders. Grad would get that money cause AL believes him, he brought him in and he played well succeeded in terms of backing up JR and as a starter. AL understand the importance of open competition, he also understand that injuries do happen, he learned from previous mistakes for example losing Schillens, Gallery, Higgins and the way it affected this offense. He will resign those who he think would help this team. Grad is one of them.

    Dakota:

    I totally hear you man. I’m not saying we haven’t wasted millions of dollars on players we didn’t need to pay.

    I’m simply saying it’s not like Al won’t go out and pay for other players he wants, as a result of potentially paying Gradkowski or anyone else a ton of money.

    The point is: Have you ever seen him NOT get a guy he wants, regardless of the cap?

    I could be wrong, but, I can’t think of one example.

    A GM working on a 29-83, with the highest payroll in the league????

    In-Competent.

  • NorthernD

    I think if Al was going to give Grads huge money, then it would be because he was going to be the starter. Clearly he still wants Russell to be the man.
    Can’t see him forking over the coin just yet.

    I do guarantee that if Darren McFadden had holes the size of an Australian sheep ranch to run through as he did in college that his YPC would skyrocket and his fumbles would plummet.
    Still can’t say if the hash marks would trip him up or not.

    M Lonetree….My source tells me that Dmac is gonna have a break-out year! Same with Gradkowski!!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Jackson was brought in to get through to JaMarcus, but I’m sure his work with Ray Rice was the deciding factor to make him the OC.

    ***

    LOL!!!

    Jackson was a QB coach in Baltimore bro. how much work with Ray Rice do you think he did? did Rice throw a bunch of passes last year?

    does that mean we can blame Paul Hackett for the running game regression this year?

    Al: gosh Paul, did you really give Fargas the most carries this year? you’re fired!

  • M Lonetree

    4eva,

    you’re the WR coach, are you saying that McF is gonna be your commodity to work with?

    Hopefully Jackson will figure out how to use McFadden and then I will not let you and others live it down.

    Same ole counterproductive nonsense from Davis. Hiring his HC’s coaches.

    Yeah, I know, he doesn’t believe in chemistry. Backstabbing and fights amongst the coaches has worked sooooo beautifully.

    JaMarcus is always eyeballing Darren’s chicken legs

    In Flacco, Hue Jackson had to work with a young man who at times wore the “deer in the headlights” look.

    In Russell, Paul Hackett had to work with a young man who resembled an overly large pinniped snoozing on an Arctic beach when he was in the pocket.

    If Hue can work miracles…

    Wrong..as usual.
    McFumble led the nation in fumbles in college.
    Many were with no one around him.

    Hue might do a great job,..might do a poor one,..but we`ll have a to wait a year for that answer. Hey hes the OC, so I will support him as Im sure the players will,..Russell might not, hes too stupid to see that Hue`s there to help him….Russell is the stupidest guy in the NFL.

    you would trust Cable to hire anyone after his miasmic performance at assembling an O-line?

    considers retirement. gets reinjured

    gets offseason surgery overseas without even letting the Raiders know until he shows up for camp (still wasn’t 100 percent healthy)

    LOL. now thats pretty stupid, right?

    at least he took a paycut last offseason :)

    Born n raised in Oakland.

    West Oakland kid. I went to mac.

    Frank is right. I understand some people have a hard time seeing it.
    I don’t blame u. But frank is no racist. I see it for what it is. Not all athletes only play hard for a coach they can relate to. But some do. Some players are self motivated. Most aren’t.
    Some need a wake up call to start handling business. Some go hard off the jump.

    It is what it is. I do understand how some aren’t able to see it tho.
    U just have to live it. Not saying it’s right. It just the way it is

    Hey Mac Madden, I was born and raised in oakland and went to Fremont High, I coached with Leo Allemano at the age of 20 then moved on to coach at mac, then to the hayward leagues, and I guess some guys dont think this doesnt go on in the highschool ranks but it does and that was back in the day probably worse now. But I surly dont mean to come off as a racist, its just the way it was with some kids.

    Now that we have Jackson AND the fact that he’s familiar with Troy Smith, RFA-Ravens, maybe he’ll recommend to AD that we pick up Smith in the off season to compete for the starting QB position. Jackson has unique inside information about Smith and can really make an informed choice.

    ==============================

    Amen and frankly maybe Troy could teach Jamarcus about how to prep and be a veteran. If not, Troy boy can get the job done. He’s a hidden gem at Qb no lie. Don’t care if he’s 5-11 or what evs…

    Russell scored a 24 on his wonderlic, came out a Junior and has had how many coaching changes since joining the NFL?

    To call him stupid is incorrect. Lazy, uninspired, maybe, but not an idiot.

    Hard to get a read on the guy. Very aloof, and doesnt really show disappointment. I know he didnt have the locker room, and Schillens was like “No comment” when asked about Russell following Ravens game.

    Jackson’s a good hire. If you follow the track record, he worked with Cable before, helped develop receivers Ocho Cinco and TJ Housh back in Cincy, and helped develop Joe Flacco. He has work to do with Russell, but ultimately, its up to Russell. Dude is a coach killer – why else was Cable calling plays and Tollner the passing coordinator? Hackett would take the game out of Russell’s hands altogether.

  • http://myoaklandraiders.wordpress.com myoaklandraiders

    All of the recent hirings point towards Cable being on the sidelines during the 2010 season, but this is Al Davis, and who knows what he’s gonna do. Here’s my take on Al and this off-season. http://myoaklandraiders.wordpress.com/
