  • Ha and they said we couldn’t get any real coaches .

  • However, keeping Cable and hiring a real OC to call the plays is what most of us wanted, from the beginning.

    So today is great day to be a Raider fan isn’t it!!!

  • Kirk

    Hue Jackson is great.

    He performed very well at the Oscars!

  • Thank You Very Much 408!!!!

  • jhill

    Cmon Vegas,

    Bayou was in here telling us about the Russell/Hackett beef in what, the pre season?

    Obviously Cable isn’t mad at the guy who got him a chance to coach in the NFL.

  • jhill

    So I guess Satele will be back at C with Cable coming back.

    Pears and Carlisle will probably be backups with Langston taking over and RG. I wonder if Barnes is going to get another shot at OT?

  • LA to TheBay

    Report: Hue Jackson takes Oakland OC job

    We got Wolverine to coach the offense?

    And someone named Mike Waufle to coach the defensive line, huh?

    Report: Mrs. Butterworth to coach special teams, the Hamburglar will be defensive backs coach and the Incredible Hulk inked as linebackers coach.

  • MillerRaider

    Good job Al. Now stop relaying plays via the sideline phone and maybe the Raiders will have a little magic on offense this year.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Hue Jackson fallout? My understanding is that QB coach Paul Hackett did not accompany Raiders coaches to Mobile.


    so we pitch one of the best QB coaches in the game in favor of the worst starting QB in the league?

    typical Raider move. way to go Al!

    here comes another 5-11 season. woohoo!

  • Pretty Rick

    Soon we’ll even know who our head coach is,,,cool!

  • 4eva..

    its nothin brethren…

  • RaiderRockstar

    the Bears have interest in Paul Hackett.

    he won’t be unemployed for 2 weeks.

    what about Ted Tollner? does that mean he’s been demoted to QB Coach or did he get axed too ???

  • Norco Bob

    Hugh Jackman as new OC is awful news for all us Jamarcus haters. 🙁

  • RaiderRockstar

    I love Top 10 draft picks!


  • Norco Bob

    However he was awesome in Happy Feet.

  • bcz24

    Is there confirmation Hackett was let go? Just because he isnt at the Sr bowl doesnt mean he is fired… just means we arent drafting a QB

  • Fire Cable Now!!
    Promote Hue to HC!!!

  • 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” …

  • RaiderRockstar

    Just because he isnt at the Sr bowl doesnt mean he is fired… just means we arent drafting a QB


    Tim Tebow has been training with Usain Bolt. He’ll run a 4.3 forty and get drafted by Al anyways

  • Chris in NY

    Jackson seems like a guy who’s had pretty good success. Don’t know much about him but it seems like a good hire.

    I hope now he can talk Al into acquiring Troy Smith from the Ravens to compete with Gradkowski and whoever else (Frye, Losman, JaMarcus, Southwick) for the starting job.

  • RaiderRockstar

    whats up O?

    that would be funny if Al scheduled a press conference and named Hue Jackson Head Coach after all the media reports of him being named Offensive Coordinator.

    I’d rather have:

    HC Jackson
    OC Tollner
    QB Hackett


    HC Cable
    OC Jackson
    QB ???

  • Bummer, this better mean Jackson gets to CALL the plays, decided who gets to play, and have major input on the offensive line lol.

    The only reason Cable is still coach is the pending lockout.

  • RaiderRockstar

    1987-2000 Jackson was a college coach.
    2001-2009 Jackson was an NFL coach.

    Jackson began his coaching career in 1987 at his alma mater, the University of the Pacific. After three years there, he moved on to Cal State Fullerton (1990-91), Arizona State (’92-95) and California (’96). At Cal, he was Offensive Coordinator and helped lead the Golden Bears to an Aloha Bowl berth.

    His last college post was as Offensive Coordinator for the University of Southern California from 1997-2000. Jackson’s duties in his last three years at USC included the recruiting and early development of Bengals QB Carson Palmer, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft. Palmer came to USC in 1998. Jackson also helped recruit Matt Leinart before he left USC.


    Is Matt Leinart a free agent?

  • RR,

    I like That!

    Jackson as the HC, Tollner as OC, and I’m ok with Hackett as QB coach. I’m not sold on hackett!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Hue Jackson played QB at UOP in Stockton.

  • I also don’t want to see Bruce playing QB for us.
    I’m going to get a lot of heat for this, but I still think JR can be salvaged, and he should start next season if he improves his work ethic.

  • Teabag

    LOL @ People gloating because Hue Jackson “chose” the RAIDERS over the Bears….

    Let’s be REALISTIC people…..

    Did Gibril Wilson “choose” the “Raiders” over a championship quality team?? Or did he choose 38 million??

    Did Javon Walker “choose” to play for the “RAIDERS” over a handful of other suitors (more talented ones) or did he choose 50+ million??

    It is much more likely that Hue got an offer he couldn’t refuse… Trust me, he probably would have preferred to mentor Jay Cutler over a lost cause like Jamarcus Russell..

    there are some very stupid posters on here LOL

  • RaiderRockstar

    Paul Hackett was at USC with Hue Jackson from 1998-2000.

    He might have a good relationship with Hue?

  • RaiderRockstar

    new post!

  • Pretty Rick

    Raider O ,,

    you’re only thinking what most people are thinking but wont say because its easier to call him dumb names like JaMeatball,,JaFatass & all that other stupid sh*t. Lets just hope he grows up in the next few months and earn back the respect he lost this year.
