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.

    So,, Hackett was stripped of OC duties because he didn’t like Russell. This means that Jackson was only hired because he agreed to work with (translation: take the fall for…) Russell.

    Mr.

    Hackett was never the OC to begin with. He was the QB coach.

    “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.”

    uh-huh…

    are we sure his agent told him where he’s going???

  • RaiderRockstar

    repost –

    Late in the season, there was talk that Hackett’s blunt reviews of JaMarcus Russell didn’t sit well with Davis.

    ***

    gotta side with Hackett on this one. He’s one of the best QB coaches in the game and if he calls Russell a bust obviously he knows what he’s talking about.

    a lot moreso than a few Raider fans who blame everybody but Russell, despite the fact that he doesn’t “want it” or “get it” as his teammates and other coaches suggest.

    Jackson said that while he talked with Cable, most of his time was spent with the owner.

    “Tom and I have had some good conversations, but I spent most of my time talking with Mr. Davis,” Jackson said. “What a man. He’s one of the guys in this profession that you would like to have an opportunity to sit down and talk with, let alone work for. My conversations with him led me there. Hopefully, things will work as planned, and I think we’re capable of doing it.”

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Exactly, AIG. He was the QB coach, and not the OC, because he didn’t like JaMarcus and Davis knew he would emphasize a running game to keep the game out of Russell’s hands. Can you think of a better reason that Tom Cable was calling plays while Hackett was holding a clip board?

  • RaiderRockstar

    repost –

    As OC Jackson’s QB’s were Patrick Ramsey, Tim Hasselbeck, Joey Harrington and Chris Redman…

    now he gets JaMarcus Russell & Bruce Gradkowski.

    LOL. is this guy a glutten for punishment or what ???

  • JB

    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. He certainly won’t want to deal with JaBustus unless they just keep JaBustus around to park the cars & sweep up after practice. I really think JaBustus’s days are about done. If he comes to camp over 250# he’s NFL history – the BIGGEST BUST EVER!

    Anyhow, this means Russell is staying, and will be our starting QB.

    Maybe Tim Tebow has an excuse for his unimpressive showing in Senior Bowl practices.

  • RaiderRockstar

    I need to ask Jerry Mac a question during his live chat.

    do teams ever carry an Offensive Coordinator AND Passing Game Coordinator ???

    My guess is “no” …

    so Ted Tollner & Dwayne Board are out?

    ——————————-That’s because dysfunction arrived here waay before Russell did.

  • aig

    Mr.

    I didnt like Cable’s playcalling at all. he had a few good moments but the rest were awful. Hackett was never going to be the OC because Cable wanted to be the OC and he prob convinced Al during the interview that he could do it.

    Regardless, I’m happy to see they finally put a black man on Jawalrus. Maybe Jawalrus will finally stop his knucklehead BS.

    Well, that’s probably the closest thing we’ll get to the Raiders confirming that Cable will retain the job.

  • Seymour Bush

    Taylor Mays got exposed this year as a coverage safety. His stock is dropping. That just means we’ll take him with the overall #8 pick and try to convert him to running back.

    Hey that guy aig is here. He thinks Cables play calling was bunk, I didn’t think it was that bad. + I don’t call Russell Jawalrus, and I realize we have to develop him. + I am not violent against women. I guess only a wack job could confuse our posts.

    “I’m hired as the offensive coordinator, and I’ll be the primary play-caller,” Jackson told the Ravens team website. “That’s my role. It’s a chance to go out and assist the head coach and be the best offense we can be.”
    ++++++
    Assist the head coach….but he didn’t say HC Tom Cable…yes, I am still holding out hope that we fire Cable and save 2010.

  • LakeCountyRaider

    If JaMarcus sucks again, I don’t think Cable will hold back on pulling him out at putting Gradkowski in. He did it this year, and unfortunately that might realistically be our best possible situation for next year. At least they would continue to push each other and switches back and forth would hold both accountable.

  • inonewordraider

    Grads is gonna be our starter, 3 tds in the fourth against Pittsburgh is something no Raider qb has done since what Stabler? He keeps us in the game, our playcalling has improved, our young playmakers will be much better this year, and as long as we shore up our OL and get someone other than a FB to return kicks we have alot to be excited about

    DON’T SELECT SOME PROJECT WITH EITHER OUR FIRST 4 PICKS!

  • morilla

    it’s shocking to see how many idiots walk this planet.

  • Seymour Bush

    Even if Grads does resign, which is no given, and even if he does start the lst games of the season, which is no given, there is NO WAY he is going to last half a season behind that offensive line without MAJOR upgrades. (See Raiders, Oakland, 2009 season)

    Im not insisting nothing mr madden raider, but some black kids relate better to a black coach, not saying its right but what if………wouldnt it be better than have to write him off as a bust…………for all that money id try anything AND I get to use all my Ja’s

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Inonewordraider,

    Is that what you want to happen, or is that what you think will happen? If the latter, how so? What indication have you seen that Gradkowski will be our starter next year? I see all signs pointing toward Russell.

    ****************
    Using that criteria, FAT ALBERT should be named as JaBustus’s new coach. There does come a time to cut your losses and move on. We’ve already arrived at that point. Now, it’s time to move on as fas as JaBustus goes. Let him go home and buy a Southern Fried Chicken franchise and live happily ever after.

  • Frank YoooooooLLL

    Mr Real Madden, I was an assistant coach at Mac in Oakland for many many years, then moved on to coach in hayward baseball league, coached all the Del Rio boys in the late 70′s early 80′s and as a hispanic coach I seen alot of disrespect from black athletes to white coaches some was done behind backs and some crap was done out in the open, if Jamarcus is as imature as they say I wouldnt put it past him. Dont claim to be an expert but I have enough coaching years to know what comes down the tubes with the players….

  • aig

    Mr.

    Florida Pete said it best. that’s my answer to your question.

    Sometimes, you need someone who understands how these young guys think to really be able to get their attention. Vince Young said Kobe Bryant was instrumental in helping him. Ocho Cinco said Denzel really knocked some sense into him.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Frank, how do you know those coaches were disrespected because they were white? Respect has to be earned. Nobody’s entitled to it. Black people never disrespect black people? Is that why there’s so much black on black crime? Your rationale that a black player will somehow respond better to a black coach is flawed, at best. Your attempt to explain it just falls flat. You coached football in Oakland…LOL. Please. What the hell is that supposed to mean? Oakland is a very diverse city. It’s not all black.

  • aig

    Frank,

    good post. You are absolutely correct.

  • morilla

    You could have Singletary, Tomlin, Green, Sam Jackson and Obama coach that f-in dud and it is not going to matter. I can’t believe that p.o.s. is still on the team, let alone in the NFL.
