Fit for print _ the Jackson hire

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Tuesday, January 18th, 2011 at 7:00 am in Oakland Raiders.

Links to Tuesday morning’s stories in Bay Area News Group papers:

My news story about Hue Jackson becoming the 17th coach of the Raiders.

Columnist Cam Inman wonders when Jackson will be fired.

Press conference today at 1:15 p.m., (PST). Lunch at noon (usually very good barbecue for head coaching hires). In the finest tradition of freeloading media, if the Raiders are offering lunch, I’m obligated to eat it.

TWITTER CHATTER

Ravens Insider Aaron Wilson reports on his Twitter account that Al Saunders, Wilbert Montgomery, Chuck Pagano and Wade Harman are possibilities for Jackson’s staff with the Raiders. For Baltimore, Saunders was an offensive consultant, Mongtomery coached running backs, Harman tight ends and Pagano the secondary.

Pagano, a former defensive backs coach for the Raiders before leaving to become defensive coordinator at North Carolina in 2007, would likely be a candidate for defensive coordinator.

    Why do people trash Al Davis yet still want to be Raiders a fan? Doesn’t make sense. You want things your way, buy your own team.

    because Al is not Raiders, we are Raiders fans, not Al-fans…

    a j3w might love his ford, but that does not mean he likes the antisemitic views Henry Ford had, now does that make sense to you??

    Nope. If he didn’t like the maker, why would he support him by buying his product? The more it doesn’t make sense. It becomes hypocritical.

    Al doesnt back away from anyone. The presser ended and he brought everyone back so that he can explain his Cable decision. He really didnt have to. Everyone was leaving.

    because he likes the car, thats why… product and maker isnt the same thing… just like the raiders are the team we love, and Al is pathetic in the view of some…

    if your dad is an 1diot, but you are a nice guy, shouldnt people still be friends with you? (not that Im saying he or you are any of these things)

    DAMN…

    Just missed lucking on #909….

  • post14em

    al made it clear who the qb is , build him a good line bring in vince jack = unstoppable offense.

  • BoJacks

    Called Cable going to Seattle. He’s from there and figured Carroll would want someone to permanently take over since the great Alex Gibbs bounced before the season

    Product and maker may not be the same. But if there is no maker there will be no product. But still why would you buy a product from someone you hate?

    If my father were an 1diot(as you mentioned) and I were a nice guy(not that I’m saying he nor I are any of these things), I wouldn’t not want to be friends with nor trust anyone who would not respect him, even if he’s an 1diot.

    You say the raiders are the team you love. The raider team does not always have the same players every year. If they leave do you follow each of them to the next team? If not, why not? Are you a fan of the brand?

    A lot of negativity begin with the raider “fans” and then the haters build on it.

    The transformation is now complete. After seeing the state of Al’s hands, it is now apparent. Al is now E.T.

    Okay, Spielberg, lighten up on the closeups.

  • http://ibabuss.com antispy3

    In regard to Steve Corkran’s article Al cryptically referred to when addressing the five things that went well in ’10.

    Guess he forgot about the five bad things. Charitably (screws up the punchline) that’s why we all gather here today. . .

  • http://ibabuss.com antispy3

    Hue Jack has to hire a “mini-me.”

  • http://ibabuss.com antispy3

    Y’all know that as soon as Al dispatched Cable he has nowhere else to go other than home.

    I live in this area. Now all the women folk will be in an uproar.

    On second thought not all that bad a thing. . .

  • Raiders for life

    I liked when Al’s bad eye opened up when he said “We’re not losers anymore?” You guys called it, Al defenitly did not like that comment from Cable.
