    Good bye Cable. Goodbye Zone Blocking?

    Three more days and I might be selected to be a fill in at the Pro Bowl. Every year, it’s the same deal. Outrage over which guys didn’t get picked and by the time the actual game rolls around, hot dog vendors are being pulled from the stands and told to suit up…

  • aig-raiders

    So that’s how Ray Lewis has been hanging in there these last 2 years. Deer Antler!

    I’m not sure if it was the ZBS or McFadden’s injuries that kept our rushing numbers down under Cable but it sure seemd like Davis wanted “more beef” which is contrary to the ZBS’s more agile linemen.

    DMC’s sucess may have been more in part him than the scheme.

    We’ll have to see

    What a strange land this is. A billion dollar music industry is made of what Harry Edwards terms the “prison culture” with all of its retribution and stands for “no dis” and “no snitches” yet when Al doesn’t want anyone pi$$ing on his shoes, he is called “deranged”, “dysfunctional”, “out of touch”.

    Deer antler velvet extract, uuuuummmm, does that come in a 40?

  • aig-raiders

    If DMAC takes himself seriously again this offseason, then we will be fine next year. If he gets lazy and gets back on that late nite fast food binge, then we are effed!

  • aig-raiders

    As someone who is doing strength training, I am so tempted to try that stuff. Not sure if my bone can handle the extra strength though. Tempting for sure though. I can only imagine an athlete like Lewis getting up on age must be so dependent on this stuff.

  • buckeyeraider

    Congats to Zach Miller.

    No, this wasn’t one of Zach’s better seasons. He seemed to drop more balls than I can ever remember. He also looked like he was struggling to maintain his blocks at times.

    But, you have to rememember he was struggling through some painful injuries. Just gutting it out.

    Besides, they say it usually takes one year past when you’re first deserving to make it. The word has to get out, if you will.

    So, Congrats Zach. Represent the Silver and Black proudly, and oh yeah…sign an extension…would ya.

    One of the S.W.A.T.S. products, “The Ultimate Spray,” is labeled as containing deer antler velvet extract. On the company website, swatsteam.com, the spray is said to contain “very delicate and unique nutritional properties … such as IGF-1 and other growth factors.” IGF-1 is banned by the NFL.

    ******

    Dude I can hook you up with this stuff (deer antler velvet extract.) Most all the deer I have killed in Bow season are in full velvet.

    Come on.. who wants some? $50.00 per gram

    Who’s a beter option than Hue? Remember Cable at the press conferences, I mean I’m not saying you have to be a rocket scientist to be a Head Coach but Hue seems more intelligent and just as fiery seems like a better recruiter of players plus the offensive numbers don’t lie. Oh and by the way he seems to have input in the coaching selection? Let’s go HUE!

  • http://www.pro-football-reference.com/ KoolKell

    The ZBS has worked in other places. But, Al Davis is not a ZBS guy, so they’re not on the same page from the get-go.

    Just like De-Angelo Hall is not a man2man CB.

    Crazy, counter-productive, distracting, craziness, year after year.

  • DKnight007

    The ZBS will not be completely scrapped.

    Hue will run some ZBS schemes every now and then when he wants to change up blocking schemes when play calling.

    You got to mix it up between counters, pulling, trapping power stuff and some zone.

  • DKnight007

    The next defensive coordinator needs to be solid choice will improve upon what was done this past year.

    I think they will look at Winston Moss,and maybe even promote Mike Waufle.

    What about Eric Mangini as a DC candidate?

  • DKnight007

    Congrats to Miller for finally being added to the Pro Bowl!

  • SC

    The begining of the end…I knew Al Davis would begin docking Huge Jackson’s paycheck…just thought it would be later than one day after being hired.

    Interesting idea, but, what’s Davis paying?

  • olinesux

    zbs is horrible you cant even practice run defense properly if all you hsve are zone blocking linemen…

    Thanks Debo. Damn, Anyone knows how you can listen to that?

    I’m sure Jerry will post a transcript. Have to go out to my car to listen.

  • SaintKaufman

    Al Davis, “we have a defense, IF WE CAN KEEP THEM TOGETHER, that’s coming of age”…

    Damn right Al!

  • DKnight007

    Winston Moss is also the Assistant Head Coach to McCarthy.

    I think him being hired as DC/Assistant Head Coach would work.

    If he was hired, Moss would most certainly add in some more 3-4 looks to the defense.

  • Just Win Baby

    now I ma going to buy some S.W.A.T.S liposomal deer antler velvet spray. It’s only 68 bucks for a small bottle. Thanks Hue Jackson and Yahoo! for bringing me this product.

  • Just Win Baby

    Anybody know anything about this IGF-1 (insulin like growth factor 1). I know its a protien found in deer antler velvet that speeds up tissue regeneration. Will it still give you bacne and man boobs? The spray is supposed to be the best delivery method (sans needles).

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    Looks like Hue’s pic is a deer in the headlights, no wonder he got out of it. It’s all downhill from here, Hue, enjoy the ride, and your 15 seconds of fame are the most you will see from AD! But hey, at least you were on stage with him. Way to go Hue!

    Tom Cable just finished his radio interview. He apologized to Darren McFadden for underutilizing him in favor of his lover Justin Fargas, and then apologized to Al Davis for being such a loser head coach. Then he sang a song:

    To all the girls I’ve slapped on the road before

    Who travelled right on through my door

    I’m glad they came along, I dedicate this song

    To all the girls I’ve slapped on the road before

    To all the girls I have once harassed

    And may I say I’ve beat the best

    For helping me on the road, I owe a lot I know

    To all the girls I’ve slapped on the road before!

  • Just Win Baby

    Will it make me dance like Ray Lewis? Is that a roid rage thing?

  • M Lonetree

    And so the NFL tells Hue to disassociate himself from deer antler velvet, while deer antler velvet is a component of Ex-tenz, hawked endlessly by Jimmy Johnson of the NFL’s most popular pre-game broadcast.
    Hypocrisy must not be just a state of mind, must be an entire continent.

  • TerrapinRaider

    I think Saunders is in and this offense will be lights out next year. I am more worried about who we get on defense.

    Hue will have these boys energized for sure. His attitude will permeate throughout that whole team (and organization). It may take 2 years to really see it through fruition but you will surely see a different and improved product on the field overall insofar as preperation and attitude/emotions on the field.

    Skys looking up. Only thing that can possibly set him back is stumbling out the gate; but I just don’t think that will happen if we sign most of our very good/great players over again.

  • TerrapinRaider

    Man, I can sense it. WE are going to have an extremely confident team almost to the point of arrogance! They are going to push you in the mouth and show no mercy. That’s Hue’s attitude! Thats what he wants to build: A BULLY!

  • http://www.alaska.com SammyTheBull

    Does ANYONE doubt, for a second, that every even half way decent established HC will avoid theRaiders like the plague?

    I mean, Al brings up that his coach has a fling on the side?
    and he publicizes that, to all?

    for no other reason than to be a vindictive ahole?

    Kiffin was one thing, with the overhead. That alone turned off the droves.
    After yesterday Al has officially burned every last bridge.

    and some of you are so stupid that you actually still have tossed out names, like Gruden, and Cowher, etc?
    Wise up

  • http://www.pro-football-reference.com/ KoolKell

    Best wishes to Hue. Davis will find a way to F it up, though.

    I hope you guys see the difference between Hue and Cable. None of that wishy washy feel good, we’ll get better talk. Hue gives you absolute direction and vision. The guy is in you face saying we are going to be the best. We are going to win this damn division!
