Hue Jackson finds a job with the Bengals

By Jon Becker
Friday, February 17th, 2012 at 12:34 pm in Oakland Raiders.

(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.

    Mike Brown now has his Huey and Louie (Marvin), he must have a Dewy somewhere’s in the Cincy org.

    Methinks El Hueness will want to call some sort of special teams trickery 10 times per game, ’cause he certainly ain’t a-gonna be helpin’ no DBs get better.

    anyway, it just ups the likelihood that the Raiders are gonna play a Prime Time contest against the kitties next schedule.

    You might be surprised. Many who were so adamant about JR being so awesome and anyone who did not believe in him was some sort of racist that was hung up on black QBs tended to own up to it years later when the verdict on JR came in so to speak.

  • J Hill

    “The West Coast offense requires a quarterback who throws extremely accurately, and often blindly, very close to opposing players.

    ———————————————————–

    Oftern blindly???

    Very close to the opposing player???

    Well what if the WR doesn’t get to where he is supposed to be?

    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!

    Agreed! I think JC or CP could have led us to the play offs if we even had a mediocre defense…

  • Marks hair

    The D has so many holes.. is reg gonna wait till the 11th hr to make some cuts?

  • M Lonetree

    Lefty12,

    other than our great Kahuna Hwnrdr you always drive the most well-thought canoe on this blog. kudos to you.

  • Raiderjambo

    With you 797, 1960 Autumn Wind!

  • raidertalk

    At least Palmer never threw an interception to Vince Wilfork!
    Seriously how bad do your eyes have to be to miss that guy?

  • Marks hair

    Jc is very solid. But he never finishes a season.. Whats his ave like 10 games a yr?

  • M Lonetree

    AutumnWind,

    your canoe is always in the race.

    The Hue worked wonders for our DBs, no wonder lewie hired him, and remember that little number our Special teams coverage unit did in the SD game…

    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.
    ==============================

    Look at the numbers you posted.

    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)
    ====================================

    lst off Palmer has 32 more TD;s than Brooks and a much higher completion percentage. You are right, number don’t lie, but you have to be able to read them correctly.

  • raidertalk

    Who can forget the great game-managing of Jason Campell, the famous “slip and fall” and fumble to the brownies, the possesion managment of throwing to Vince Wilfork instead of a fast DB, to make sure its not returned! And the LONGBALL to our fullback

    Also have to add that Palmer had a much better WR core through out his career and was with the same offense/team. Yeah, it’s more than just numbers.

    Its funny how the CP haters never bring up a replacement.

    When making quick plays Palmer makes bad decisions.
    ========================================

    Then why did Marvin Lewis, Bob Bratkowksi, Hue Jackson and al Saunders all let him call his own plays last year if he makes bad decisions?

  • hwnrdr

    That is why I asked that…who’s it gonna be? If Reggie lets CP walk and resign JC, I’ll be happy with that, or if somehow JC is resigned knowing that he is gonna be a backup to CP, I’ll be even more esttatic…but we all know chances of that are slim to none!

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

    Then why is that great WR corp you talk about useless in New England, and no one picked up TO even tho he had 1000 yards 70+ receptions and 9 scores? Maybe teams realize those players had Palmer tossing them the rock.

  • http://raiders.com Mark Clemens

    Palmer may throw INTS, but that is because he isn’t scared to throw the ball like JC. Palmer is twice the QB than Campbell.

    BTW, Brooks had Joe Horn who was a Pro Bowl receiver, Deuce McAllister, a Pro Bowl running back, I think Brooks had talent around him. Wrong again.

  • hwnrdr

    Anyways…until CP is no longer our QB, then I still find it pointless to argue over it! These days, numbers are for Fantasy players…only thing counts are wins and losses…hey, didn’t Andrew Walter win a game for us throwing for a net 16 yards? And I believe Jake Delhomme beat us with those numbers too…

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

    Exactly. The year before, Palmer was up there in INT’s, right BEHIND Eli, Drew Brees, and just ahead of Favre and Peyton. I will take any of those guys.

    NOT TO MENTION, how is JC doing in rehab, Coming back from a broken collarbone has gotta be tough either way…

    That is also true, Raidertalk!

    Ok, other than Palmer talk…I hope Reggie finds some gems on D…

    LOL, you are talking about one year.

  • raidertalk

    You got to figure, an injury that took him out of the season, would take some time or have lingering effect. Everyone just throws JC’s name around like if he was benched for CP or something.

    I haven’t seen any reports about JC throwning the rock OK after the bronken bone.

  • hwnrdr

    I read that he was trying to throw the ball at his expected time back of 6 weeks and couldn’t do it…haven’t heard much since!

  • hwnrdr

    I mean…look at Peyton also…they said he couldn’t make all the throws when his doctor medically cleared him…

  • Seymour Bush

    LOL, you are talking about one year.
    ======================================

    No, I am talking about his best target the whole time he was in Cinncy and a second pro bowl player. 85 was an All Pro when he played with Palmer and has done very little without him. TO isn’t even in the league after a pretty good season with Palmer. What does that tell you?

  • M Lonetree

    mediocre is not the new standard in Reggie Realm. 20/40 vision might’ve passed with the Schroeders and Soups and Hollases of the past, a new era is begun. the old stuff is down the drain.

    CPLamonica is gonna make your downtrodden souls look in surprise as to what an actual real-life QB can do.

    If Cam Newton and Tebow are starting QB’s in the NFL then TP is ready. Nuff said.

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    White, Black, Tiger-striped, who cares: we need a QB who doesn’t speak in serial eubonics and whose bottom lip doesn’t hang down to his knee.

    Pryor and Palmer need to go head to head in preseason, and let the best man win.

  • Seymour Bush

    If Terrel Pryor can go head to head with Carson Palmer and even be in the equation, we hit the jackpot.

  • Marks hair

    842. Head to head? Ok . Tp get under center and say hike.. Carson, you won…….

  • Raiders for life

    Fkn Pryor doesn’t even know the rules of the game. Hopefully his only NFL snap lit a fire under his azz.

  • Hardline

    Yes TP with CP, head-to-head in preseason. One may say Pryor doesn’t know the rules of the game yet while another may say CP starting this year is already written.

    That may be so, just Hue claimed the D line had solved its vulnerability before a preseason game was played: then we played the 49′ers who ran right through us, and also tore JC a new “you-know-what.”

    In time the truth is exposed and will be again, here.

    RO,

    847, great post.

  • EMRaiders

    I think we should hold off on any comments about TP or anybody until the preseason starts and we see how this team is built and how players perform. This might be a whole different team by then.

    It is a bit premature to start judging who can play or is ready and who is not. Let’s wait and see how they really perform, and then make our judgement. I think that is the logical thing to do.
