Hue at the Senior Bowl

Hue Jackson has surfaced a couple of times for interviews while in Mobile, Ala., for the Senior Bowl.

Jackson told Bengals.com he planned on reaching out to the fan base in Oakland and although he couldn’t comment directly on any interest in wide receiver Chad Johnson, said of him, “He’s my son.”

CSN Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco caught up with Jackson before Senior Bowl practice for a one-on-one interview during which time Jackson broke no new ground in terms of staffing.

    Agreed. Hopefully he’d be a team player for his “father” and not make waves.

    I used to like 85 alot but he’s just become an annoying clown who’s not half as funny as he thinks. Plus I think his play is starting to slip.

    I could live with bringing him in and maybe get a little excited about it, but I wouldn’t be disappointed if we don’t.

  • SilverNBlackPA

    That DE from Cal that Mayock briefly highlighted on NFL Network last night jumped off the screen to me in those drills. Normally, I wouldn’t put much stock in a snippet like that and none of the other players featured did much for me. But that Cal dude looked extremely long, quick and powerful.

    You guys should know out there. Is he the real deal?

    ++++++++++++++++++++++

    Cameron Jordan….he’s apparently dominated every drill he’s participated in. Long, quick and powerful is a good way to describe him. Some 3-4 team will snap him up. He’s played most of his college career as a 3-4 DE.

  • Chris in NY

    DMAC,
    Maybe. I’ll tell you one thing, I wouldn’t trade Ford or Murphy for him at this point in all their careers. And I’d love Chaz if he could stay healthy.

    Not opposed to bringing in a veteran receiver, but I don’t think it’s imperative either. Some good ones in the draft, too. I like both kids from Boise State.

    If we’re going to make a splash in free agency, I’m more interested in the QB position. Vince Young is mighty intriguing to me. No, he’s not a great passer, but he’s OK. Which might be more than you’d say for Campbell, since he’s Captain Checkdown most of the time. Uses the TE well. Isn’t afraid to make some throws downfield. A consistent winner. Could break off some HUGE runs when our speedy WRs go deep and the secondary goes with them. How many times did Campbell run for 15 yards in scrambling plays this year before there was even a defender on the screen? If VY gets that kind of head of steam he’s taking some of those to the house.

    Chris in NY,

    Al Davis made it clear that he considers Campbell the unquestioned starter of the Raiders heading into 2011. Cross quarterback off Oakland’s offseason shopping list.

    “Kiss da Baby!”
    “Child, Please!”

    ……Pepe and Scarface reunited!!

  • Chris in NY

    I remember that and being disappointed. Then someone made the comment that Davis left the door open slightly there because he supposedly said “Right now, Jason Campbell is …”.

    Plus, if he wants VY, and he supposedly loved him coming out of college and we all know Al’s love of high first-round draft picks, he’s not going to want to show his hand at this point in time.

    I agree. Campbell is likely to be our opening day starter — if there is an opening day in 2011 — but I won’t feel real excited if that’s the case. I think it would mean that if we are to contend it’ll be with the QB simply along for the ride rather than leading the charge, much like it was in just about all our wins with Campbell this season.

    Wouldn’t be shocked if the Pats snag him with our 1st rounder.

    Not having a first round pick makes draft talk booooring. None of you have a clue what will happen with the 49th pick and beyond.

    I thought teams could only deny permission to interview for the same position but not if it would entail a promotion?

  • http://chismetime.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/sofia_vergara_01.jpg r8eray

    Jets refused to let Dennis Thurman visit Raiders for DC job. I will assume Dennis has some hot feet!

  • YoungAmerican

    If I’m not mistaken, the Raiders can still interview him if it’s for a promotion, but generally it’s a common courtesy offered to the team to ask permission.

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/skew-t/166654980/ BART Bridge Blues

    I’ll bet the interview was for secondary coach, not the DC. This is what I was thinking awhile back when some ESPN doof said that the Raiders wanted an attacking 34 defense like the Jets. I think rather than wanting the Jets-style 34 line, Al wants to utilize the Jets style of coverage, which gets the most out of a guy like Revis, which I am sure intrigues Al, who has Nnmadi Asomugha, but can’t get any turnovers out of him.

  • RaiderRockstar

    is Winston Moss under contract next season?

    If so, the Packers could deny us as well!

  • http://blackhillsphoto.com/sturgis-weddings/black-hills-weddings.jpg Dakota

    Damn, accordning to this it doesn’t matter if the move is a promotion from one assistant job to another assistant job, the team holding the contract can deny the other team. Bummer. Hope GB relents this time.

    Promotions:
    •The NFL does not differentiate between levels of assistant coaches in its rules regarding their availability to interview with other teams. Whether the coach is a defensive line coach or an offensive coordinator, the rules are the same. If a team wishes to interview an assistant coach who is still under contract with another team for its head coaching position, the current team is required to give permission for the interview as long as it happens between the end of the team’s season and March 1. After March 1, teams can still ask, but the current team is not obligated to give permission.
    Lateral Move
    •An NFL team cannot interview an assistant coach who is under contract as an assistant with another team for the following season without the permission of his current organization. Teams will usually give permission upon request, particularly if a lower level coach is set to take an offensive or defensive coordinator position elsewhere, but the current team is not required to give permission.

  • buckeyeraider

    I don’t think there is any league rule against a club denying another onr permission to interview one of their employees under contract.

    It’s just not done very often. It’s probably frowned upon in the coaching fraternity for an org. to deny one of their employees an opportunity for career advancement.

    Kinda shady of the Jets, IMO.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Hope GB relents this time

    ***

    that depends on what they think of Kevin Greene

    Right now he coaches OLB’s and Moss coaches ILB’s.

    If they feel Greene can handle both, i’m sure they’d let Winston walk for the promotion and save some coin

    I don’t think Al Davis would ask permission unless he was obligated to … he cares more about getting what he wants than doing something out of courtesy

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/skew-t/166654980/ BART Bridge Blues

    OK, forget the part I said about the interview being for the secondary coach position. Dakota and RRS shut me up with their “facts”

    But I don’t relent on the second part of my statement, that Al wants the kind of secondary that Baltimore and the Jets are running, while keeping his 4-3 line.

    Sounds like we may be able to interview Thurman after March 1st (or 4th). I am sure Al can wait that long.

  • http://blackhillsphoto.com/sturgis-weddings/black-hills-weddings.jpg Dakota

    Basically if the Jets or GB (or any other NFL team) wants to be total azzholes, they can deny their assistants interviews unless the interview is for the HC position. That is why Baltimore came out and said they “let” Al Saunders interview because they didn’t want to stand in his way. They could have said no. GB can say no about Moss or the other guy.

    That really sucks for those coaches.

    Damn the Jets!!

    Don’t hire the drunk nudest!

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/skew-t/166654980/ BART Bridge Blues

    When was the last time any team asked for Al’s permission to interview someone on our staff? Seems like all of our coaches leave the organization via the “fired with cause” route…

  • http://blackhillsphoto.com/sturgis-weddings/black-hills-weddings.jpg Dakota

    I have read other sources that claimed any promotion would prevent the team from denying permission to assistants for interviewing with other teams, but I guess the fact that it happens shows that those sources were wrong.

  • buckeyeraider

    Dakota,

    It does suck for those coaches. Which is why I think it’s done so infrequently. It stands in the way of somebody’s career advancement.

    Obviously Coordinator is a much more high profile position, than an anonymous DB coach.

    Say, hypothetically Thurmond came to Oakland as a new DC. Their young talent jelled and he did a good job and moved their ranking from 28 to a top 10 defense.

    Well, then in another year or two he might be a hot commodity for a HC position. Get his name out there.

    But, no the Jets denied him the opportunity.

    1. If Mike Waufle wanted to be a DC, he’d be one in Oakland. I don’t think Al Davis would hesitate to promote him

    Hue Jackson got permission to interview with SF for their HC job!

    Outside of these 2 guys, who on Al’s coaching staff is worth interviewing ???

    Most everybody else’s contract was up anyways, along with Cable.

    Doesn’t matter who the DC is. Raiders just need a good teacher that can teach concepts.

    Defensive coordinator is Coach Al Davis

    That really stinks for the assistant coaches, they need a NFL ‘Coaches’ Association who can get this ammended in the new CBA.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Baltimore Ravens

    Pettine joined the Ravens in 2001 and was promoted to OLB’s coach in 2005 when Ryan became defensive coordinator.

    New York Jets

    Pettine, Ryan’s “right hand man”, reportedly received a three year deal to lead the Jets defense. Pettine has been credited with contributing strongly to the Jets number one defense in the NFL in 2009.
