Coach Hue Jackson delves into WR Hagan issue

Coach Hue Jackson was asked Friday why wide receiver Derek Hagan was inactive against the Denver Broncos in the regular-season opener.
Well, let’s just say that Jackson has been waiting for an opportunity to respond to those who questioned the decision and called him on his repeated preaching about performance-based play.
First, let’s give Jackson the microphone since he, obviously, has yearned for the chance to fire away at his critics (in the interst of full disclosure, yes, I was one of the most vocal).
“OK, let me, because this has come up several times, about Hagan,” Jackson started. “I just said Hagan’s done a great job and, obviously, he was our leading receiver in the preseason, right? But I never once said he’s the best receiver on our team. I never once said that.”
For the record, no one quoted Jackson as saying Hagan is the best wide receiver on the team. Back to Jackson.
“What he did in the preseason gave him an opportunity to be on this football team,” Jackson said. “It did not make him the starting receiver on this football team. So, let’s make sure we understand where I was with Hagan.”
Where Jackson stood was on firm ground about those who performed best in training camp and exhibition games would be rewarded with playing time. He uttered this stance numerous times.
Hagan caught 12 passes for 224 yards and one touchdown in Oakland’s four exhibition games. He outplayed every receiver on the roster, though it’s important to note that Jacoby Ford, Louis Murphy and Chaz Schilens missed some or all of the four games.
Moving on, Jackson said there’s a role for Hagan on the team. That will be defined by Jackson as he learns more about his roster.
“Now, if he gets an opportunity this weekend, he gets an opportunity,” Jackson said. “But I get to make that decision. Nobody else. Me. So, everybody else who thinks I was supposed to put him out there because he was our leading receiver in the preseason, forget that we had other guys that have been very good receivers on this team.
“So, I get to make that decision. That’s the decision I made last week and on we go. Now, if he plays this week, he plays.”
At that point, I reminded Jackson that the media takes their cues from what he says, and that Jackson said playing time would be performance-based.
To which, Jackson replied:
“Yeah, but here’s the deal,” Jackson said. “You said that ‘performed the best.’ No doubt, but we had some other guys that hadn’t practiced that I’ve seen perform in games and make big plays, i.e. Jacoby Ford. So, you guys were like, I’m supposed to sit him down, sit Jacoby Ford down, and let this kid play.”
Um, coach, no one said that that I am aware of. It would be easy to make a case for Hagan playing ahead of Schilens, rookie Denarius Moore and Game 1 starter Darrius Heyward-Bey, though.
Let’s not get in the way of Jackson’s rant. He’s not through yet.
“No, that’s not where I was,” Jackson said. “So, let’s make it clear about what that was. That was for him to get on the team. Performance is what matters, and that’s what got him on the team. That’s where it starts first. Then, he has to continue to perform and beat some of these guys out and then he’ll play. That’s the way it works.”
So, there you have it. What Hagan did in practice and exhibition games was good enough to get him a spot on the 53-man roster. For him to play in a game, he’s going to have to do even more in practice.

*Nick Miller is one of the more versatile players on the Raiders roster. That, more than anything, played into his making the 53-man roster each of the past two seasons.
All his talents just might be on display Sunday against the Bills, given injuries to wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey and kick returner Jacoby Ford.
Miller’s primary role is that of punt returner. However, he also is a backup receiver and one of several options on kick returns. He performed all three in practice Friday.
Jackson would not say who is going to return kicks Sunday. Rookie Taiwan Jones and veteran Rock Cartwright also lined up on kick returns during practice Friday.
Jones declined comment in the locker room, saying he had to shower before boarding the plane.

*The Bills turned in, perhaps, the most-impressive showing of Week 1 by rolling into Arrowhead Stadium and rolling up the defending AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs 41-7.
Mind you, the Chiefs are quite difficult to beat at home, even when they aren’t in the midst of a successful season. The Raiders pulled off the feat last season.
Raiders defensive tackle Tommy Kelly has a message for the Bills, lest they get too caught up in their season-opening victory.
“It caught everybody’s attention around the league,” Kelly said. “Anytime you can go on the road and have a victory like that, that’s going to open up a lot of people’s eyes. But the thing about the NFL is, that happened last week. You’ve got to do the same thing this week. So whatever they did is a nice, impressive victory. Bu they’ve got to come and deal with us now. And we ain’t the Chiefs.”

*The Raiders received some encouraging news Friday with the return of defensive tackle Richard Seymour and free safety Michael Huff. Both missed practice Wednesday and Thursday.
Seymour is battling sore ribs. Huff strained his groin against the Broncos. Their return Friday makes it likely that they intend to play against the Bills. However, they are listed as questionable, which equates to a 50-50 chance of playing in NFL injury report lingo.
Seymour no doubt wants to play. He has more sacks against the Bills (7) than any other team during his long, illustrious NFL career.
Huff said in the locker room that he intends to play, no doubt.

*Jackson said Murphy (groin) and backup safety Mike Mitchell (knee) also are out for the Bills game. Both players said they are targeting the New York Jets game Sept. 25 for their return from injury.
Defensive tack

*Tight end Kevin Boss made it through his third straight practice this week without any setback from the left knee injury he suffered against the 49ers on Aug. 20.
“It’s definitely improving each day,” Boss said. “I’m looking forward to getting back out there and playing some football again.”

*Running back Michael Bush received huge props for his starring role in helping the Raiders close out their 23-20 victory over the Broncos.
Some people are taking to calling him the closer.
“I don’t consider that a role,” Bush said. “It’s something that needed to be done. The line did a great job. It’s was something that we did. We were practicing on it. We just had to move the chains, and we got it done.”
When reminded that closers get paid top dollar, Bush said: “I’ll take it.”
He said he also is aware of the fact that people always seek to label players as something or other.
“Something that comes with the territory,” Bush said. “I’m always getting labeled as something. So, if (everybody) wants to give me that, I’ll take that, too.”
Jackson said he views Bush as more than just a late-game specialist.
“I’m not going to say he’s the closer,” Jackson said. “There’s a couple of things, whether it’s Darren (McFadden) or him, that I know they have a good feel of doing. At the time, there are a couple of things that I’d seen that I thought would give us an opportunity to finish the game.
“You always keep a couple things in your back pocket when you need them the most, and I thought this young man would run those particular plays very well. So that’s why he was there.”

*Here’s the full injury report, in Jackson’s words:
“Ford, did not practice, and he is out, OK? Heyward-Bey, did not practice, and he’s questionable. Murphy, did not practice, he is out. (Stephon) Heyer, limited, questionable. McFadden, full, probable. Boss, limited, questionable. (Jason) Campbell, full, probable. (Jarvis) Moss, full, probable. Seymour, limited, questionable. Huff, limited, questionable. (Chris) Johnson, full, probable. Mitchell, did not participate, he is out. (Joe) Porter, full, probable.”

  • The biggest upgrade Sunday will be the return of Kevin Boss. It’s going to be a 4 1/2 hr drive from N/W Ohio but it will be worth it.

  • Raidervill

    I like Cork and read his work daily…but do not consider him the end all, be all of football knowledge. Reading his chat after the game it seemed like he did not quite understand just how dominant the Raider’s D-line was in harassing Orton. He kept mentioning instances of the Dline not getting near Orton, even if it was a quick 3 step drop and throw. We battered Orton, sacked him 5 times (ALL DLINE) and hit him countless others. Oakland physically dominated the Raider O and Cork seemed to be arguing that point.

    Hagan came into camp late as a body and impressed enough to make the team. Expecting him to start just because he was the team’s leading receiver in the preseason is utterly ridiculous. Preseason rarely means anything…did you see the Raiders D on Monday? Nuff said.

    ALEX… what’s the point… until hue n al crown Hagan a good receiver. .. the anti hagan guys will not support him. These are company guys… I saw hagan outplay all our receivers in preseason games…. damn!!! Atleast try him out. . Lets see what he can do….. to place Nick Miller and a 75% chaz over hagan is a stupid joke!!! I hope Hagan lights it up on sun… 8 catches for 175 yards and a touch down… even shuts up hue!!

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Get a grip already.
    Hagan has been released by two teams already.

    Did he look good in pre-season?
    Yes, but in comparison to the other Raider receivers.

    Should he play?
    Well, there are only so many slots and we know that DHB will take one because Al thinks his reputation is on the line.

  • Method To My Madness

    Leftster is a great poster….we just dont agree on this issue….but I hope no one goes in and bashes this great Raider man. He is just an OG that plays schit cautious…no problem

    Ghost,you are such a tool.Nobody is anti Hagan,he is a Raider.If he plays I’d love to see him post those results.The question is ,is he better than all those in front of him.To that I say,the coaches are in a better position to make that decision than we are-they see him every day at practice-you don’t.

  • inonewordraider

    DMoore tore it up in preseason but had 0 receptions Monday Night so there’s no guarantee Hagan will set the world on fire I’m good with any of the receivers starting/getting playing time they’re all pretty good but I’m not good w/ NMiller handleing PR or KR

  • i love it when someone gets called a tool. Such a classic put down, well played Lefty!!

    Notice that Steve wrote”Coach Hue Jackson was asked Friday why wide receiver Derek Hagan was inactive against the Denver Broncos in the regular-season opener”
    Which probably means that someone else asked that question. Someone with a pair.

  • rob_raider

    it’s really a pretty simple picture w/ the raiders wr’s.

    dhb hasn’t really done much. we all know that. but none of them have. they have a lot invested in him and they are gonna want to see if he can do something. there is nobody on the roster that has done anything in a meaningful game that would be knocking down the door.

    ford made a lot of nice plays last year, but many of them were in the return game and on reverses. he really hasn’t done much to suggest he is a reliable receiver yet either.

    chaz has looked great in what seems like the distant past. but in that time, he did look like a legit wr. injuries may well have ruined his career, but we’ll see soon.

    denarius looked great in preseason. but he’s rookie. he’ll get chances but they’re not going to put at the front of the line yet.

    hagan looked good. but you what he really looks like? a good #3 or #4. not larry fitzgerald.

    murphy is hurt and his chances are diminishing. but he has looked the best in regular season games than any of them.

    miller. gee, he played his way onto the team 3 years ago in preseason. looked great. how has he panned out?

    for the millionth time, preseason don’t mean sh*t.

    hue jackson on the wr decisions. “I get to make that decision. Nobody else. Me.”

    u see. he was addressing the rather ridiculous assumption that al davis decides who starts.

    it’s like this: when al davis hired hue, he likely discussed the personnel and who he would like to have opportunities. they probably agreed dhb would get a good long look.

    did bruce campbell start? many of u were saying he needed to start, and most would think al davis wants that. supposedly that’s one of the things al was mad at cable for. but guess what? if cable wasn’t playing him, didn’t that mean cab;e was deciding? and since bruce didn’t start, and in fact didn’t even dress, doesn’t that mean hue calls the shots on who plays?

    Dude it was preseason, preseason, in the Allen Iverson voice, when Hue made that statement i never thought once he meant that kid would actually start, i always undstood it as meaning he would have a shot at making the team.. if we wnt on preseason N.Miler would be starting, and our entire starting def would be benched cuz dey didnt look great in preseason. Im glad the guy made the team but he doesnt deserve to start over dhb, murphy, shillens, nor ford just cuz he performed in preseason..

    Screw Hue and Al! just the fact that Hue stated three times that he makes the decisions on who starts proves he doesn’t. DHB is a better WR than Hagan? Moore and Schilens are better than Hagan?Come on man! Hagan is in Al’s doghouse for questioning why he didn’t start in Denver bottom line. Al is a spiteful paranoid old man who needs to sell the team. He has destroyed a once proud and winning franchise. He’s the joke of the sports world. Just sell you pathetic old man! Hey Herrera I think Al needs his diaper changed you better hurry. And don’t forget his Ensure!

    That just shows, that Al is still making the calls on the personnel on this team. Otherwise, Hue would sit Miller and replace him with D. Moore or Jones @ punt return and put Hagan as 3rd Reciever. These are your playmaker, make use of them to win you games.

    No Matter how good a player you are, if you question Al, on his decesion making you are not going to play. The man is to prideful & stubborn to tell him his wrong. Humble yourself Al…….
