Hue Jackson finds a job with the Bengals

(From our online story that we posted earlier):

Hue Jackson, who was fired by the Raiders after finishing 8-8 in his only season as Oakland’s head coach, has been hired by the Cincinnati Bengals as an assistant coach.
Jackson, ironically, helped engineer a trade with the Bengals that reunited him with quarterback Carson Palmer in Oakland.
Although Jackson has an extensive history as an offensive assistant, including time spent as a wide receivers coach in Cincinnati, the Bengals announced they’ve hired him as as assistant secondary and special teams coach.
“Hue is a tremendous addition to our staff,” said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis in a released statement. “I relied on Hue greatly when he was with us, and his success overall in the NFL, including being selected for a head coaching position, is well documented. He has expertise in all aspects of the game, and we are fortunate to have obtained his services.”
New Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie fired Jackson as head coach on Jan. 10 and later replaced him with Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen.

    Hue Jackson did one thing no other coach has accomplished, even with the discounts, he sold out all 8 games. The extra 160,000 in attendance and what they spent sure helped the bottom line.
    —————————————-

    Hue made the team more entertaining for sure. Getting off to a winning start and being in playoff contention the entire season was even more important.

    I dont think the 2012 Raiders will be as fun but if they are winning fans will be happy.

    Palmer had 2 good(decent) years in Cinci with at the time a top WR(Ocho) in the NFL. He is an INT machine. Always has been.
    You think Aaron Brooks was any good? Most would say no. Raiders have an Aaroon Brooks caliber QB making $12.5 million a year and that’s just ridiculous. He should be shown the door just like Routt.

    Carson Palmer:
    62.9%, 22694y, 154tds, 100ints, 86.9r, 4.8td%, 3.1int%
    46-51 (.474), 0-2 (.000)

    Aaron Brooks:
    56.5%, 20261y, 123tds, 92ints, 78.5r, 4.2td%, 3.1int%
    38-52(.422), 1-1 (.500)

    Actually Denver beat the Raiders. 2nd dumbest post ever. So based on your logic you would rather have Teblow’s than Carson Palmer? There goes your cred.

    Being an “Old Raider Fart” and appreciating what Al Davis meant to this beloved organisation, after seeing what went on the last 10-15 years or so and realising that things had to change, I came across this quotation which I’m sure the “RAIDER NATION” both old and young will appreciate as to maybe why we all became “RAIDERS”.
    “In football I root for the OAKLAND RAIDERS, because they hire castoffs,outlaws, malcontents and fu*k ups. They have lots of penalties, fights and paybacks, and because Al Davis (RIP) told the rest of the PIGNFL owners to go get fu*ked. Someday the RAIDERS will be strong again, and they will shove it down the throats of the wholesome heartland teams, that pray together and don’t deliver late hits!”

  • raidertalk

    Well now that the HUE is in cincy, And with Carson Palmer likely our starter, The NFL is surely going to make our trip to the natti a Night Game/National. There is definetly a new storyline there, especially if both teams are competitive (both will probably be).
    “Carson’s Return to Cincy for Revenge”
    “Hue Jackson primes the special teamers to defeat the team that fired him”
    I can see it now…

    Numbers don’t lie. ‘Seymour Bush’ you must have drank that Hue Jackson “Greatest trade in football” Kool Aid. You Palmer “Overraters” on here are getting ridiculous. I don’t see how you can debate 16 INT’s in 10 games which is just a continuation of his Cinci 2010 season were he threw a boat load of INT’s also.

    I’d say Palmer did “fix” his game as the season went on. As was pointed out earlier, check Palmer’s stats against Det and SD and you should have a hard time understanding why this is even a topic.

  • Raiderjambo

    Looking back 695. regarding your comments about Cris Collinsworth. Remember meeting that SLOW a*hole at a University of Florida rugby party after we DEMOLISHED (RAIDER STYLE) ufa rugby club. Thought he was a piece of hot sh*t, when in actual fact we had two rugby wingers who were hot sh*t faster than him and could catch anything coming their way. Collinsworth was nothing but a blonde haired, “mommas boy” out of the ufa, who was nothing more than average receiver, who happened to be in the right place at the right time. How dare he comment on our sh*itty defense4 that probably would have manahandled his slow ass!

  • Marks hair

    Sounds like wimbleys gone. He wont resign. So bye bye!

  • Marks hair

    Collinsworth is a dk hole.

  • lefty12

    Palmer’s ints weren’t as bad as numbers seem.He threw 10 of those 16 in 3 games.One game he threw 3 with almost no practice with the team or the receivers,3 the next game which was the same as HIS 1st pre-season game,then 4 in the GB game that was over before the offense even hit the field.Numbers can and do lie and can be made to support any argument-even ones that are wrong.In the 7 other games he threw 6 ints.Not exactly an int. machine some like to make him out to be.

    No No No, do not blame the off the couch (pre season) stuff. He is a INT machine that’s what he does. It’s just a continuation of his Cinci 2010 season.

    Cp3 is a gunslinger.. Some people fear the way of the gun. personally, I have high hopes that he’ll give us the best season by a raider qb since gannon won the mvp.

    So everyone saying Palmer was an interception machine…well, yes, he was over the last few years…but so was Favre, blah blah blah…we have to ride with Palmer for now unless Reggie pulls off the greatest release of all time…when that happens…who will be our starting QB? May say that the offense needs no retooling…if Palmer’s gone, and JC most likely not coming back…who will it be?

  • Raiderjambo

    Gunslinger or pop gun who is our choice RAIDER NATION?

  • lefty12

    No,No,NO-I don’t buy your BS.Go sell it somewhere else.Ints are the result of multiple things,not just the QB.TO and Ocho caused many of those ints.His numbers increased dramatically when they didn’t play.

    Yeah i guess you will blame the Raider WR’s for Palmer putting up 16 INT’s in 10 games. Keep blaming WR’s. LOL. Get outta here with that mess.

  • lefty12

    Maybe you don’t understand football.When a route is a timing route and the play calls for say a 10 yd out,and the WR cuts the route off at 7 yards,the ball has an excellent chance of being intercepted.That is just one example of how a WR can cause an int.Or,the WR could fall down while the pass is perfectly thrown to where it should have been-like what happened when Ford slipped and fell against SD i believe-and it will be intercepted.

  • hwnrdr

    Like when JC threw right to Patrick Chung when he threw to a spot that DHB was supposed to be…it happens!

  • hwnrdr

    Point guys…we had a game manager in JC…and he did well for us, but still, many in here wanted the long ball thrown…we have a gunslinger in CP3 and everyone wants his head after throwing int’s…JC went down and my heart stopped knowing that we had Boller waiting in the wings…oh goodness…I’m glad we had Palmer instead of him, but yes!!! We gave up a lot for him and I hope he does well this year! Like I said, unless Reggie pulls something out of his arse!

  • J Hill

    Like when Rivers threw that deep ball to V Jacskon, V Jacks quit on the pass, Gio got a pick, Rivers goes bonkers, lol.

  • lefty12

    Hwnrdr-they will gladly point it out when DHB made a mistake and it caused JC to throw an int,but don’t you dare point that out when it happens to Palmer.Just like they refuse to acknowledge what Campbell looked like his 1st half a season with us.

    When making quick plays Palmer makes bad decisions. That’s what the WCO is all about and that’s one of the reasons he failed horribly trying to run it at USC. The INT’s will get worse. Can you say “INT city”

    “The West Coast offense requires a quarterback who throws extremely accurately, and often blindly, very close to opposing players. In addition, it requires the quarterback to be able to quickly pick the best one of 5 receivers to throw to; certainly much more quickly than in previously used systems. Often, the quarterback has no time to think about the play and must act robotically, executing the play exactly as instructed by the offensive coordinator, who calls the plays for him.”

  • Marks hair

    Cp3 makes some bad decions. But he can get that football anywhere on the field. he can squeeze it through football sized windows.. Soup couldnt keep a deep ball in bounds. And he was made of glass.

  • lefty12

    Thank you,J Hill.It is nice to see there are still a few that frequent this place that have some clue about the game and how stats CAN be deceptive.

  • hwnrdr

    Not defending any qb but can you really say that CP3 can’t thread balls where he is supposed to…I don’t know but I have seen quite a few. Now one point I will agree with you is that he is NOT fit for the WCO…but give it time!

    Guys

    The probability and instances where there were cut offs and mis communications with Palmer where higher than JC. Why? Because Palmer just came to the team cold. That is the essential point here. I do not know how many of the 16 were due to that sort of thing but it was more than a few but probably not half of them.

    The other issue is we traded a lot for Palmer. Unless some team comes and gives us at least a first or a 2nd and 3rd for him we need to use him as much of his money is guaranteed already – just like Seymour’s. However, all things being equal and I needed a win or die, I would take CP over JC although I like both of them.

    I know…that was in my end zone….saw that pass clearly! Didn’t know that DHB was supposed to be there until JC said it in an interview after.

  • lefty12

    I would say that if/when you are proven wrong by Palmers play this year it would be nice to hear you admit you were wrong,but I know that is something that will never happen.He could win 12 games,the division,and go to the AFC championship game and you’d be here complaining about an int. he threw in week 9.

  • hwnrdr

    1960, and that win or die did happen on Jan 1st…Palmer had us in position, had the D not let Tolbert to run 40 yards from our half yard line..or amongst other games where all we needed was one stop…but still…he did do his part! Ford not slipping, it would have been interesting!
