No Raiders on All-Pro team

Six Raiders received votes for the All-Pro team. However, none received enough votes to merit inclusion on the prestigious All-Pro team, as voted upon by the Associated Press.
Kicker Sebastian Janikowski finished runner-up to the 49ers David Akers. Raiders punter Shane Lechler finished a distant second to the 49ers’ Andy Lee.
Strong safety Tyvon Branch, defensive tackle Richard Seymour, left offensive tackle Jared Veldheer and fullback Marcel Reece also received at least one vote of a possible 50 at each position.
By comparison, the 49ers placed a league-high five players on the All-Pro team, including linebackers Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman and defensive tackle Justin Smith.

    On all this Hue non-sense…

    Is it possible he will get canned? Sure. But who’s going to replace him?

    Moss? Guys never even been a DC.
    Perry? See Moss.
    Del Rio?
    McDaniel?
    Spagnolo?
    Ryan?
    Turner?

    Hue made some rookie coaching mistakes and certainly is headstrong…but he’s also very talented. Dude coaxed 26 points per game out of freakin’ Soup and 26ppg out of Carson with no training camp, no healthy skill guys, after a mid-season trade and no training camp…I can’t recall the last time a QB got traded mid-season from one team to another and was able to do that.

    Perspective people.

    Change for the sake of change is just that…change.

    Change for a HC that is definitely better than Hue I’d be fine with, but where is that coach?

    Fisher? No Thanks
    Cowher? Pass

    If you want Hue gone answer me this…

    Who out there is better than him AND available?

    I, for one, want to see what Hue can do with even average DC and SP coaches and some depth. These are things Reggie can help with.

    If McKenzie is comfortable with HJ and feels they can work together he could come back.It is that simple.What I find humorous is most were upset because we didn’t win the division and make the play-offs,yet now are saying the team is void of talent.If McKenzie does clean house hopefully code black will be one of the things that goes forever.

    Once again, the DEFENSE is what cost this team wins and the playoffs and most of us saw this coming right when Chuck B was hired as the DC. I knew that clown running the D would cost us wins, never thought it would cost us the division as well. Let’s get Hue a REAL DC and add some more talent to that side of the ball and reduce the penalties and see what Hue can do after that.

    If Reggie wants Moss as his head coach, then so be it, but they better keep Saunders as OC, or else the offense will regress….guaranteed!

    If McKenzie and Hue go to a 3-4 D, then they need a proper 3-4 DC who will allow them the flexibility to switch to a 4-3 at any given time. I think Dean Pees, the LB coach for Ravens and former Pats DC (when they were a good Defense) would be a good hire IF they convert to 3-4 scheme.

    The Raiders don’t have pieces yet either for a 3-4 scheme though. They need a legit 3-4 NT, and then at least two legit 3-4 OLB’s.

    It’s debatable if Shauny can convert to a stand up 3-4 OLB position. He can no doubt rush the passer and play well versus the run standing up, but can he back pedal, open the hips and move laterally to cover in zones?

    I think Houston and Bryant can play 3-4 DE’s and I think Kelly and Seymour can rotate as well as 3-4 DE’s and be put in during 4-3 fronts.

    Wimbley is not a 3-4 OLB, can’t cover….his specialty is playing as a down RDE and rushing the passer and causing disruption in the backfield. If the Raiders hire a REAL 4-3 DC like Spagnolo or Del Rio, they need to move Wimbley down as the full time rush RDE and let him do what he does best, rush the passer. Then add a vet legit 4-3 SAM OLB to compete and push McClain and Curry. Matter of fact they will need two vet LB’s who can play in a 4-3 scheme!!
    ——————————————–

    Post makes so much dam# sense it’s scary. And thank you for identifying a good candidate for DC.

    During the 1st SD game when Wimbley essentially won us the game by spending it in the back field I was like…maybe dum azz Bres will see this and decide to rush Wimbley on every down for the rest of the season…next week guy’s in coverage…giving us 3 LBs with no clue as to how to cover down field.

    From the moment he was hired I’ve been screaming for Bres to be demoted.

    Wimbley is a 24/7 pass rusher, just move him around and let him go to work.

    Atlanta had ZERO weapons that year. Remember that Michael Turner was still LT’s caddy in San Diego.
    =======================================

    I don’t know if I would agree that Atl had ZERO weapons. They had Warrick Dunn, Alga Crumpler, Roddy White, Laurent Robinson, and were coming off an 8-8 season I think. Just like now. Another coincidence was Tom Cable was a major offensive assist on that 8-8 team that Jackson followed.

    =========================================

    Dunn was old and washed up, and their pretty-good pass catchers were worthless without someone to get them the ball, which they didn’t have. There’s a reason they turned around so fast the next year; they signed Michael Turner to run it and drafted QB Matt Ryan, who could actually throw the ball accurately.

    Sources: Hue to remain Raiders Coach!

    According to three sources close to the team, Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie will be keeping Hue Jackson as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders in 2012.

    My sources said it’s ridiculous to think the new Raiders GM will fire Hue Jackson this year.

    One of the sources said, “Reggie McKenzie and Hue Jackson are joined at the hip. They are proud to be on the same team. Hue is delighted he can now focus on what he does best, which is coach. Reggie and Hue have the same Sports Agent, Ken McGuire, to think there’s a riff between these guys is simply ridiculous.”

    I’ve learned that McKenzie and Jackson are very good friends who see eye to eye on the changes the Oakland Raiders need to make to become a Super Bowl contender.

    There are national reports that state McKenzie may consider replacing coach Hue Jackson. I’m not here to argue with other reporters, I just want to let our CSN viewers and readers know what I’m hearing. I realize you can’t always trust your source, but in this case, I’m positive Hue Jackson is here to stay. He will remain the head coach of the Oakland Raiders for the 2012 season, and most likely, much longer.

    The Raiders will introduce Reggie McKenzie as their new GM, during a press conference at 2pm Tuesday. You can watch the press conference on Comcast SportsNet California and csncalifornia.com.

  • devilr8er

    A little perspective, Cable’s Raiders would not sniff 8-8 without Hue calling plays. This year, the Raiders were plagued with key injuries (some of you will plead this is no excuse, but he was a rookie coach). The offense put up enough points to win the division. The D on the other hand underperformed. I place the majority of the blame on Chucky B. From the onset Al Davis was the D coordinator, when Al passed this left Chucky B to scheme and he was woefully inept. With an average D we would have won 10 games.
    Now there are some things that I need to pick a bone with Hue, first is instilling disciple. Correct the penalty issue. I sometimes think Al drafted players with low football IQ’s. Another problem is Hue seems like a guy who is power hungry and spouts off irrationally. If we start drafting and getting high football IQ players and McKenzie can reign in Hue we have ourselves a winner.

    Change for the sake of change is just that…change.

    I don’t think it is change just for the sake of change. Let me ask all of you a simple question. And this is a HYPOTHETICAL. Say you have a team vying for the playoffs. That team is in the hunt. And they drop their last 5 games. And unlike Lovie Smith’s situation in Chi where he loses his Pro Bowl starting Q, this teams demise is for no one discernible reason. Do you keep the head coach?
    ————————————————

    Hypothetical Answer. If the players quit. The players are gone thanks to non-guaranteed contracts. If the coach got out coached then the coach is gone.

    Actual Answer. Rookie Head Coach, loses his starting QB for 12 games, starting Pro Bowl RB for 11 games, starting WRs for 10 games total, loses his owner and GM mid season, has to assume control of all operations mid season, has been saddled with the worst DC in league history for a D with a substantial number of players with the rep for underachieving, D surrenders 433 points, team plays like chumps against Miami, gets destroyed by the SB Champs, loses 2nd game on the last play of the game while on defense, and then loses last game of the season after D can only stop other team 1 damn time at home and gives up a 99 yard drive in the 4th Q…and inspite of all of this team still goes 8-8 and averages 26 points per game (minus Boller debacle).

    If you want to send a message to the players that their paychecks are dependent upon production then you support the coach who’s pissed the players didn’t step up.

    If you want more of the same scholarship mentality you fire the only coach this decade after Gruden who’s been able to score points and coddle a bunch of grown men who are stealing money from the organization.

    Thank you…I’ve seen how that movie turns out for the last 9 years. I’m good. I’ll take the coach who is pissed and ready to fire and cut people.

    ====================================

    Now what you say is true. However the team before jackson got there was decent and the one immediately after Jackson was an 11-5 playoff team. So there had to be some players on that team.

    I agree with you that the demise of that Atl team and our team this year is not on Jackson at least not 100% on Jackson. I can agree Hue is not completely the problem. The bigger question is, Is Hue the solution? I think that was answered clearly in Atl and here.

    Well said. I agree that he should be given this year to improve. I just hope that he can tone down and be a little less cocky at times. All season, Hue has been “Politically Correct” and took the blame for all shortcomings. I was glad to hear his last presser. People say he threw folks under the bus, to me, this time he called it like we all saw it. Glad he put it out there. I still hope Woodson is given a fair chance. He was a rookie coach in a bad situation. We don’t know if he had a voice or say in anything that went down. His reputation speaks for itself. The young gun DB’s that we have (DVD & Chekwa) should respect him and learn from him. If the Defense as a whole and the DB’s don’t improve next season, “Clean house”…… Chuck B spot should be cleared out by now.

    Odds are that Hue will be at the Tuesday press conference, all smiles, and saying “Now I’m free to concentrate on my coaching!” or somesuch.

    One of the sources said, “…Hue is delighted he can now focus on what he does best, which is coach…”

    ==========================================

    Can I call it, or can I call it?

    ^^^^^^^^
    Cool! Now we can move forward with improving this team on the defensive side and restructuring overpaid contracts and freeing up cap space and trying to add at least two more draft picks in this years draft.

    We also need a new Strength and Conditioning coach. Brad Roll needs to go!

    To Sullivan44,

    I want to thank you for your cool demeanor yesterday. You threw out no words of hurt, and responded well.
    The words I speak of, retard or moron were not used and no cuss words also.

    I thought you and I have crossed our first bridge to disagreeing with each other without the hurtful words in our comments.

    I would like your opinion on a few questions I pose to You.

    The first question is, since I’ve been on this blog for 5 years and you have, you let it be known constantly,that you wished Davis had stepped down from the GM duties and hired someone else. You presented his record over and over so It must of bothered you.

    My first Question then is, are you pleased with Mckenzie as the GM pick, or did you want someone else.

    Second Question, what would you expect Mckenzie to do first as the GM. I mean restructer the office, hire more football related people or gut some of the existing employees.

    Third question, should Hugh stay and if he does, will Hugh get to select his own coaches, for offense and defense.

    My fourth question, how would you grade Mckenzie as a GM, strictly on wins and losses, draft or overall football operations, et al, draft, FA signings, cap and style of team.

    I would hope you would answer, with a detailed comment back, I know you like to keep comments short so break it down for me and do this over time as you have a chance to think it over.

    Thanks, Dell.

    People please, people please………………….

    Get off the can/hire/fire Hue, Chuck, new coach, etc. et al

    Aint nobody goin nowhere but back to work. Aint no HC/DC/OC/ASST goin nowhere but back to work.

    Anybody honestly think the new GM is gonna release anyone???????? These are all Mr. Davis’ hires and letting them go would tarnish the last move of his legacy.

    Everyone, EVERYONE stays on board for another season. Now maybe Saunders calls the offense, Chucky B is put on alert, Woodson and Biekert got to step it up and so on and so on.

    We got a new GM and I’m sure the way management sees it, thats all we need. Plus clip a bit of Hues’ wings and we be ready to roll.

    But aint no-one goin nowhere and makin Als’ last hirees look bad. Als’ last move as GM wont be treated like trash. You don’t toss his picks out like bagged up garbage. No way. Ain’t gonna fcking happen.

    Al was the GM and it will remain with his picks for another season.

    Get ova it!

    Funny, considering that Bresnahan, Biekert, Woodson and Ross are already clearing out their offices as we speak.

    Amusing post, though.

    “Steve = Mark Davis
    Jerry = Amy Trask

    Dell = Reggie McKenzie

    Sullivan = Lance Kiffen

    ::::::::::

    Agreed”

    One slight adjustment

    Sullivan = John Wayne Gacy that has not been caught yet

    Janokowski ties an all-time record with a 63 yard field goal and doesn’t make All-Pro but Akers, who benefits from the ’9ers not being able to make TDs does? Sportswriters suck … and I mean that as a verb not an adjective.
