Hue Jackson and Todd Haley have a moment during postgame handshake

Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson reacts after the Raiders are called for a foul during his NFL football game against the Kanas City Chiefs in Oakland Reuters

It wasn’t quite Jim Schwartz vs. Jim Harbaugh, but Hue Jackson and Todd Haley had a little friction during their postgame handshake on Sunday.

The two men shook hands after the Chiefs thrashed the Raiders 28-0, but Jackson then appeared to have more to say to Haley while wagging a finger in his direction. Haley did not return fire and walked away while Jackson was still letting loose. A member of the Raiders staff stepped between them just to be on the safe side and there was no further interaction between the two men.

Jackson wasn’t sharing his beef with the media after the game.

“That’s between me and him,” Jackson said. “We get to play them again. We’ll go to Kansas City here at some point down the road.”

There was no shortage of things that might have set off a confrontation. It was a pretty chippy game, starting with some woofing between the teams during pregame warmups. Tamba Hali hit Carson Palmer low on Palmer’s first play of the game, drawing a flag, and cornerback Travis Daniels was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct as well. The Raiders picked up a couple of personal fouls of their own on the final Chiefs drive of the game. That drive featured Matt Cassel throwing into the end zone on the first play after the two minute warning even though the Chiefs were up 28-0.

On top of all that, Haley has never been accused of being a particularly warm and fuzzy (even with his winning streak beard) character. He’s had issues with Josh McDaniels and John Harbaugh in the past, although he was the aggressor in each of those cases and Jackson seemed like the aggrieved party on Sunday.

With things getting tight in the AFC West, this just adds another layer of fun to the rematch between the teams.

    And here PFT thought Haley would be fired…

    As a raiders fan Hue needs to reel it in. We got beat, plain and simple. Our defense limited their team to 14 points, and we usually score way above 14 points. When we dropped 59 on Denver Josh still came out and shook Cable’s hand and that was that. Don’t be mad at the opposing team for beating you, he should have looked in the mirror and said those words to himself for his play calling. 14 passes from your backup quarterback and 22 from your QB who was watching games from last sunday?! Really? VS 17 touches for our running game, which is his offenses bread and butter makes no sense.

    My goodness compared to some of the games around the league, this is much more exciting.

  4. wawa33 says: Oct 24, 2011 9:20 AM

    Todd Haley looks like Ben Stiller.

  5. txxxchief says: Oct 24, 2011 9:21 AM

    Hue was just asking to see if Todd had Donovan McNabb’s number. He wants to upgrade his QB staff if McNabb is released.

  6. wtfpft says: Oct 24, 2011 9:23 AM

    Raiders would have lost to any team yesterday.

  7. normswifevera says: Oct 24, 2011 9:24 AM

    Now this is a rivalry where the coaches should be getting into it.

    That said, Oakland melted down late in the game with cheap shots, including a big-time late hit on Jackie Battle that sent him into the Raiders’ bench.

    So KC throws one pass and suddenly the tough-guys Raiders are offended. Funny how bullies don’t like getting hit in the mouth.

  8. natiifootball says: Oct 24, 2011 9:25 AM

    Hue just realized he mortgaged the future on a quarterback with no arm, no accuracy and no moxy…

    Thanks Hue your the only guy in America that could make Mike Brown look like a genius!

    Bengals fans are still laughing!

  9. rodgersrodgersheisking says: Oct 24, 2011 9:26 AM

    OMG we haz to finez them now for not acting in a professional manner!

  10. ern215 says: Oct 24, 2011 9:28 AM

    Doesn’t Todd Haley look like the spoiled rich kid in high school that wore the same bunny clothes all the time and tried to be a toughguy but was really soft as charmin?

  11. humb0lt says: Oct 24, 2011 9:29 AM

    Hey Hue Jackson, you kept Todd Haley guessing all right – on which defender your QBs would throw the ball to.

  12. cakemixa says: Oct 24, 2011 9:31 AM

    It’s hilarious how Jackson was acting all smug all week not wanting to admit who he’d start. Now he mad.

  13. whodey1218 says: Oct 24, 2011 9:34 AM

    Wow!!!!! Another big mouth Rex Ryan know wonder chad ochocinco punched him in his mouth.

  14. stoogy says: Oct 24, 2011 9:35 AM

    from what i say was hue telling haley good game. and haley giving him the cold shoulder

  15. tiffpats4eva says: Oct 24, 2011 9:38 AM

    The Tuck Rule is the reason the Raiders lost.

  16. steelbydesign says: Oct 24, 2011 9:40 AM

    I watched the video of this and had to re-watch several times thinking I’d missed something.

    This is a non-story.

  17. brutus9448 says: Oct 24, 2011 9:43 AM

    does haley ever shake hands without some sort of confrontation?

  18. realitypolice says: Oct 24, 2011 9:47 AM

    Why can’t grown men in positions of great responsibility act like it for 10 seconds at the end of the game?

    I know 95% of the comments on here will be about “how can we expect these guys to shake hands after they’ve been at war for the last 3 hours?”

    What utter nonsense.

    How is it that the players, the ones who were actually on the field kicking the crap out of each other, somehow manage to come out and shake hands with their competitors, but the coaches, who are supposed to be the “adults” in this situation, cannot?

    And a preemptive note to the knuckle draggers:

    Sportsmanship is not for wusses or sallies, or people who wear skirts to play sports.

    The ability to respect and congratulate an opponent is a sign of manhood, and the inability to do so is a sign of immaturity.

    When I played high level rugby, we not only shook hands after games, but actually went to the bar and drank with the other team.

    And believe me, none of you knuckle draggers would have walked up to any of us and called us unmanly.

  19. jbholcom says: Oct 24, 2011 9:49 AM

    I bet Hue was pissed about the victory formation!

  20. joetoronto says: Oct 24, 2011 9:58 AM

    While I agree that it was classless for Haley to try and throw for another TD with 2 minutes left, making a scene out of it is wrong, just pay him back next time.

    As for the game, the Raiders lost this game much more than the Chiefs winning it. All those turnovers and the Chiefs only score 28 points.

    KC couldn’t pass or run all game, the Raiders handed them that game, plain and simple.

    Jackson has been getting a little too cute lately, that play at the 1 yard line, with Bush at QB, made me wanna puke.

    Everything will be fine, but it’s time to buckle up and bear down.

  21. riverhorsey says: Oct 24, 2011 10:02 AM

    Haley was just knock off the cheap shots with the pass.

    If we had really wanted to run up the score we would of thrown every down and not of taken a knee at the end.

    Apparently, you didn’t catch Hue’s post game presser, or ANY of his pressers when they lose… Hue takes ALL credit for any bad play or loss that the Raiders have… He says it repeatedly, “Its on ME”… He specifically said “I did not prepare my team well enough for them to win” while also saying “We lost, that’s it, thats all, no excuses”… So before you spout at the mouth about “YOUR” Coach, how about you learn a thing or two about “YOUR” coach… smh

    From a REAL Raider fan…

  23. purplepain5 says: Oct 24, 2011 10:08 AM

    How does Todd Haley Get pissed at Harbaugh for letting 4 stringers help trying to earn a job in the 4th quarter of a preseason game, but than if fine with throwing up by 28 with 2 minutes. Pot calling the kettle black!

  24. clintonportisheadd says: Oct 24, 2011 10:10 AM

    I for one have seen enough of these handshake “incidents” with coaches after the game.

    From Belichick (who appears as if the person shaking his hand has a disease he doesn’t want to catch) to Haley/McDaniels to Scwartz/Harbaugh I say enough is enough.

    Let those who are actual friends shake heands if they want and the rest can just walk off the field. A wave would be sufficient but it too would not be mandated. Make the post game handshake optional and let’s not get all judgmental if someone chooses to not indulge in it.

    Wow, such a big time late hit, it was a normal shove they give all the time, was ust in an unfortunate place where he lost balance and crashed into a bench… not at all a “hit”…

    But of course, lets just leave out Palmer’s first play where Hali “HITS” Palmer in his once injured knee… LATE… yea, forget about that one….

    How does ANYONE know if ANYONE was offended???

    NEWSFLASH!!! NO ONE KNOWS WHAT WAS SAID BETWEEN THE TWO, THIS IS JUST THE MEDIA MAKING SOMETHING OUT OF NOTHING… AS USUAL

  27. eustus says: Oct 24, 2011 10:20 AM

    Haley is a hypocrite. More than once he has shoved his finger in another coaches’ face for “attempting to run up the score” then he pulls that.

    Hue said the same thing in his post-game press conference that he said to Haley on the field. He’ll see him in Kansas City.

  28. vikesfansteve says: Oct 24, 2011 10:22 AM

    If you don’t like the Chiefs trying to score a TD then stop them. Don’t complain at the handshake. Hue you look like a spoiled kid who didn’t get his way. Like Tony Larussa complaining about a guy stealing second when their team is up 6-0. Even though a team like Tampa Bay came back by 6 to beat the Yankees. IF YOU DON”T LIKE IT THEN STOP THEM!

    Right, realitypolice. You used to drink at the pub with the opposing rugby team when you were in high school presumably under 18. Lying on a internet message board is pretty ‘unmanly.’

  30. raiderlyfe510 says: Oct 24, 2011 10:28 AM

    The Cheifs did nothing…This was “Bollercide”..The Raiders QB killed them.

    Hue..cut Boller ASAP! Replace him with Troy Smith. Smith isn’t the best QB but he’s 100 times better than Boller.

    Boller kills his team, lost his last 11 starts, even games he didn’t start like the Jacksonville game last year. Starting Boller..is “Bollercide”..it’ll kill you.

    ok varaider, actually I did catch his press conference. And yes, he put the loss on himself. Now if you re-read what I posted I was talking about the incident on the field, saying he should’ve given those choice words (if they were that after all) to himself. But thanks for proving that raider fans aren’t stupid.. I don’t know how we get that stereotype. “smh”

  32. Todd Haley's Temper says: Oct 24, 2011 10:33 AM

    @Realitypolice, I misread right before I called out someone for the same thing. /foot in mouth, I feel like Rex Ryan.

  33. nyyankeedave says: Oct 24, 2011 10:34 AM

    Wow. Now that’s the Raiders we’re used to. Now keep it up-C’mon, Carson Palmer, uphold the fine tradition of past their prime Raider qbs, like Jeff George, Daunte Culpepper, Rob Johnson, Aaron Brooks-you get the point.

  34. slightlyhyphy says: Oct 24, 2011 10:39 AM

    Attempting to throw and score when up 28-0 with very little time left on the clock is extremely low class, unprofessional, and unsportsmanlike. You just don’t do that. From Pop Warner, to High School football, to College Football, to the NFL, it’s just an unspoken word that you just don’t do that kind of thing. It’s a shame that Haley stopped to such a low level. It really puts him in a negative light and takes away from what otherwise was a good win. It was also extremely selfish of Haley, putting himself and his ego over the team.

    to me it seems like he pretty clearly said “high level” and not “high school”. And even if he were in “high school”, being “presumably under 18″ is really inconsequential given that the legal drinking age is 21…..

    is there anyone who Haley hasn’t had words with? Maybe he needs a “lesson” in how not to be a jerk.

  38. sourdough says: Oct 24, 2011 11:25 AM

    Doesn’t Hue know bullies aren’t supposed to whine…or lose to the Chiefs by 28pts while being shut out!?! Some bullies Hue’s Raiders have turned out to be.

  39. dealer009 says: Oct 24, 2011 11:34 AM

    Taking a shot at Carson’s knee on this first play should get a team fine for the Chiefs.

  40. dumbolt says: Oct 24, 2011 11:54 AM

    ugly game all around for the raider. I have to point this one at hue. He needs to settle down with all of his gadget’s play, and just play football. I mean first possesion for the chiefs they had like negative 15 yards, and raiders are rolling when a third and easy 1, hue reaches to his bag of tricks with Pryors first play as raider and gets a penalty. I mean 3 flea flicker plays in one game. Bottom line we avg 5.7 yards per rush, and only 4.6 per pass play, yet we threw the ball a lot more.

    This is a game you flush the turd down the toilet, and move on. GO Raiders, GO Hue.

  41. tatum064 says: Oct 24, 2011 11:57 AM

    Rivalry beef. No big deal… Hue, less Irish Coffee, and more consistent playcalling….this was just a practice run for Carson Palmer to be perfectly honest. I mean, could you have imagined them going with Kyle Boller the rest of the way?! And they still outgained the Chiefs rushing and receiving….the red zone play was inexcusable.

    They’ll see each other again. It was partial payback for Haley after that blowout in KC in the finale last year.

  42. klunge says: Oct 24, 2011 12:32 PM

    Whoa! Hold on a minute …did someone say Cassel threw a pass INTO the end zone???

    ___________________

    But I would think after hearing his presser, you would see that he DID direct those “choice words” to himself…

    He couldn’t have put that loss more clearly on himself and his play-calling, and just plain not being ready… Your post sounded as if you we’re making it seem like he was placing blame elsewhere or wasn’t being accountable…

    And again… NO ONE knows what was said on the field, so people (and even you, still) are making an issue out of nothing… Have some proof of what was said before we make a debacle out of it…

    “smh”

  44. huejackson says: Oct 24, 2011 12:35 PM

    This is funny,
    Listen I hat to break the meddia and Chiefs fans heart but that really did not count. Chiefs beat Kyle Boller…Chiefs will not play Kyle Boler next time. Chiefs only managed to score 1 td off the RAIDERS Defense…
    Raiders will still win the AFC WEST.
    Raiers will still win the super bowl..
    This was just a pre season game for the Raiders.
    Chiefs are a horrible team, If Cambell was in that game it would of been 63 to 7 Raiders…
    So ESPN an celebrate all week now! Good for you and I hope you enjoy it cause in 2 weeks Palmer will be ready…
    TO bad for Denver

    __________________________________
    Correction, Hali’s hit on Palmer wasn’t in his injured leg but it was still late and we where flagged for that. To bad one of the better plays for oakland happend that play so it really didn’t matter. I agree it wasn’t a hit but a shove on Battle but it was still late. Bottom line is the Raiders are some bullies and they ran into a team that isn’t intimidated by them. POW RIGHT IN THE KISSER.

  49. ninersforlife15 says: Oct 24, 2011 2:52 PM

    First of all, it’s a rivalry and you have to expect that mistakes are going to be magnified into situations tuatara bigger than they really are. Hue is just mad cause his team STUNK IT UP on Sunday and he feels like an idiot cause he put Palmer in when he clearly wasn’t ready while destroying his relationship, even further, with Boller (right now that trade looks really stupid on the Radiers part). Plus, I would throw the ball too that late in the game as well. The Raiders obviously had no problem giving the Chiefs free yards on that last drive with those unsportsmanlike penalties, so why not take a shot? They ovbiously what the Chiefs to score again and I wanted to see it. Haha. RAIDERS SUCK!!! Check out the other side of the bay!!!! 49ers are in BEAST MODE!!!! Yeaaaaaaa!!!!

  50. radrntn says: Oct 24, 2011 3:05 PM

    Props to the chiefs on getting a victory .

    I will not say that you beat us . I think we beat ourselves pretty badly.

    6 turnovers
    14 penalties
    and Hue Jackson kept trying to go to his bag of tricks that did nothing.

  51. marcsasharc says: Oct 24, 2011 4:31 PM

    im just wondering where that arm strength from Carson Palmer was.

    Jackson said that was a non issue and laughed it off as ridiculous. but his arm strength looked very Pennington like. im not commenting on his accuracy and timing with his receivers, things that can be fixed. im asking about solely his arm strength.

    he looked like he has a noodle arm now.

  52. hendeeze says: Oct 24, 2011 4:34 PM

    All week we kept hearing the Raider fans. PUT CARSON IN!!! Boller suxors!!!! Don’t put Carson in, he will get hurt!!! Well now you Raider fans know what everyone else thought a week ago. Doesn’t matter who your QB is, your still the Oakland Raiders. Second fiddle in the bay to the NINERS!

  53. rammer27 says: Oct 24, 2011 10:23 PM

    If Haley was trying to run up the score they would not have gone into the victory formation at the end of the game with like 1:30 left. He threw deep because of the dirty cheap shots the sorry ass losers were taking on the Chiefs. If you want to play dirty expect to have it put on you. After that one play they went back to running it and they could have scored if they were trying. Whole different situation. Who really cares anyway cause as good as it feels to make the faider fans cry, unfortunately I am not a big believer that my Chiefs are going anywhere this year. I also know the faiders are not going anywhere either. So this was just one average team putting it on another average team.

  54. buzzbissinger says: Oct 24, 2011 10:28 PM

    If it wasn’t for Harbaugh-Schwartz (which no one cared about in the first place with the exception of one jackass) this would’ve been a non-story. Which it is.
