Everybody knows I’m the last one to give Hue Jackson the benefit of the doubt or any support whatsoever, but due to the fact that he lured in Carson Palmer (a franchise QB) and DHB has seen great improvement … I’m almost tempted to see what they can accomplish with a full offseason together. Can you imagine what a beasts Denny Moore & Wiz II are going to be? Plus you know if guys like McFadden, Jones, Ford & Murphy stay healthy this offense could be really special
Let Hue finish out his contract? You know Al Davis was paying him in peanuts anyway.
But again, if the new G.M. wants him ousted?
I wont complain
My biggest problem with CLOWN SUITS is not that he likes to dress up like a clown for the pressers or that she likes to get her nails done before a big game, or his poor game management, or his fondness for fake punts, or his poor basic math skills, my biggest problem with CLOWN SUITS is that he doesn’t seem to learn from his mistakes.
CLOWN SUITS remains defiant even after his undisciplined A$$ just cost this team it’s first chance at a playoff appearance in FOREVER.
Just Win Baby.

we’re 12th in pass yards, 6th in rush yards with DMAC, Moore, Ford out extended periods of time. Our O is fine
Easy to pad stats in garbage time when you’re getting blown out 34-0.
True, but not an accurate description of the offense this year. Here are our point totals:
With the exception of the KC debacle, which I think we can all chalk up to strange circumstances, we’re averaging about 25 ppg. That’s despite being without McFadden for 8 games and switching QBs mid-season.
The two games where we were getting blown out were our second and third worst offensive games of the season. So they have not been responsible for “padding the stats.”

we’re 27th in total defense
Get Huey a better DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR who knows what the hell he is doing….especially in crunch time and give Carson and the offense a full training camp together.
Let’s add a versatile vet MIKE/ILB to compete and push RoMac and add another vet nickel back, so we won’t have to see Boyd or someother scrub back there in crunch time.
Should have never been in a Cover 2 in the first place in crunch time…when we know damn well they haven’t practiced Cover 2 in gawd knows how long.
For the last decade the best way to beat the Raiders was to get 2 scores up on them and the defense would cave in and give up. Now we have an offense that can allow us to be up 2 scores and the defense will cave in and give up. Mental toughness has been absent from this squad for a long time. Anybody who has followed this team for the last 10 years had to know we were screwed when Detroit got the ball with 98 yds to go and 2 minutes to do it. This defense is the weakest link on this team and I think it’s because they are the worst tackling defense in the NFL. Everyone wants to compare to the 49ers D. Those guys can actually tackle. They use their arms to wrap a guy up instead of trying to knock him down with a shoulder alone in the open field. Basic fundamentals.
The Raiders will win a Super Bowl under Hue Jackson.
The Raiders will never win a playoff game under Hue Jackson.
Only guy they should replace Huey with IF Davis, Trask and the new GM want to go that route is with Jeff Fisher!
I think we all know, they won’t want to pay the money for him, so then they need to hire a REAL DC to turn this damn defense around and get them discplined and teach them how to close a game!!
There will be plenty of DC’s available that would bring intensity, smarts and discipline to the maligned D unit:
Jack Del Rio- (a Raider fan who played at Hayward High and at USC in college, was a former strength and conditioning coach with the Saints and then as Ravens LB coach who also worked with Ray Lewis and then was a solid D Coordinator with the Panthers leading them to 2nd best D in the league in 2002 and the was named Jacksonville coach after that) Del Rio would be a great fit as the Raiders DC IMO.
Steve Spagnolo- (if fired from Lambs, Super Bowl winning DC who shut down the undefeated Pats dominate offense in the last and biggest game of the year, the Super Bowl, worked with DL coach Mike Waufle with the Giants as well)
Dean Pees- (former Pats D Coordinator when they had a good defense, and is current Ravens LB coach who has taught Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs how to be dominate)
Jack Del Rio- (a Raider fan who played in Hayward and at USC, was a former strength and conditioning coach with the Saints and then as Ravens LB coach who also worked with Ray Lewis and then was a solid D Coordinator with the Panthers leading them to 2nd best D in the league in 2002 and the was named Jacksonville coach after that) Del Rio would be a great fit as the Raiders DC IMO.
Darren Perry- (was DB’s coach under Dick LeBeau in Cinncy and has worked with the Steelers as well as their DB coach, developed Polamulu and Hope, was Raiders DB coach and helped Nnamdi improve his game and is now DB coach with Packers developing Williams and renergizing Charles Woodson and is worked under another solid DC Dom Capers)
Out all these, I think Del Rio would be a great fit as DC!
Plus if the team still doesn’t go anywhere and the defense improves dractically under Del Rio and Hue is still making questionable decisions that may cost games….they can replace Huey with Del Rio as H, but keep Saunders as the OC.
Maintaining offensive continuity is very important for this Raider team because they have the talent on that side of the ball and they can score points, especially after they will have Carson for a full training camp.
