Hue Jackson is “pissed” at team, wants more power

Oakland Raiders v Green Bay Packers Getty Images

Raiders coach Hue Jackson didn’t take Oakland’s latest defensive collapse well.

While he occasionally made a weak effort to take responsibility for his team’s loss, Jackson generally threw his team under the bus in a manner you don’t normally see from head coaches.

“I’m pissed at my team,” Jackson said after the game via the Oakland Tribune. “At some point in time, as a group of men, you go in the game, and you can say whatever you want about coaches, you win the game. Here’s your time. Here’s your time to make plays.

“We didn’t get ‘em stopped. And we didn’t make enough plays. So, yeah, I’m pissed at the team. I’m also, like I tell them, I’ll always put it on me, but I am pissed at my team. Because when you have those kinds of opportunities, you’ve got to do it, and we didn’t do it.”

Translation: I’ll always put it on me, except when I totally put it on you guys.

Jackson seems especially upset with his defense. (For good reason.) We wouldn’t expect to see defensive coordinator Chuck Bresnahan back next year.

“Chuck knows how I feel,” Jackson said. “I’m disappointed over there. I have been. It’s not like we haven’t had conversations. Chuck knows what I feel, and it’s not good enough. . . . When you play defense in the NFL, man, you got to hunt. You can’t give up 28, 29 points and expect to win.”

Translation: That’s Bresnahan’s defense. Got it?

Jackson’s solution for all the problems: More Hue Jackson.

“I’m going take a stronger hand in this whole team, this whole organization,” Jackson said. “There ain’t no way that I’m going to feel like I feel today a year from now, I promise you that. There’s no question. Defensively, offensively and special teams. I aint feeling like this no more. This is a joke. . . . Yeah, I’m going to take a hand in everything that goes on here.”

Translation: I haven’t fully considered all the implications of what could happen when the Raiders hire a personnel man to be my boss.

    Good bye Hue

  2. fofofotey says: Jan 2, 2012 10:47 AM

    He could start with the draft…oh never mind.

  3. eigglesnosuperbowls says: Jan 2, 2012 10:48 AM

    Who’s Hue Jackson ?

  4. algrls says: Jan 2, 2012 10:48 AM

    Hue “man up” at least own it first, then make the changes. You don’t hear the great coaches blaming others. Your words are like your players actions. Clean house and get a new coach for the new era.

  5. dwinsgames says: Jan 2, 2012 10:49 AM

    It was a good stop, but it didn’t really mean much in the game. Giants went 3 and out, the Girls got the ball back on the Giants 25 and quickly made it a one score game. The key play was clearly the next series when on 3rd and 7 and the Giants reeling Eli threw the long one to Cruz. That guy is unbelievable!

  6. jimmysimpson55 says: Jan 2, 2012 10:50 AM

    Hue Jackson=Unproven, oblivious, lost.

  7. lanzurrah says: Jan 2, 2012 10:51 AM

    Oakland is simply not very talented at LB or DB. The d-line is pretty decent but that’s about it.

  8. nfloracle says: Jan 2, 2012 10:52 AM

    Jackson’s on a huge power trip, and I hope Al Davis’s heirs have the sense to get rid of him today.

    Handing more power to a guy who would throw his team under the bus the way he did would be like offering lightly sauteed sweet meats to Hannibal Lecter: Hue would lap it up.

  9. sterilizecromartie says: Jan 2, 2012 10:52 AM

    The last time he had power he made the worst trade in NFL history. I don’t think giving him more power is the solution here.

  10. binarybulge says: Jan 2, 2012 10:52 AM

    Yeah, this approach will go over well.

    Seems he’s a little too big for his britches now that Al’s gone. Just like we all get on Rex for his approach, Hue might be the polar opposite. He should hold himself a little more accountable. In all honesty, I have more respect for the job Tom Cable did. He had his players ready and competing in a more competitive AFC West. Hue had them going out with a whimper in a terrible, and winnable, division.

  11. 1972wasalongtimeago says: Jan 2, 2012 10:52 AM

    Please Hue, in Miami we’ll be happy to take a 1st round pick or two off your hands. We have plenty of players with abilities equal to Carson Palmer’s from which you may choose.

  12. fittytuckin says: Jan 2, 2012 10:53 AM

    Well I’ll be damned. A 1st and 2nd for Carson Palmer and he’s boldly proclaiming that essentially he’ll be the general manager next year. That’s alot of nerve.

  13. duanethomas says: Jan 2, 2012 10:53 AM

    B.S. Badly coached, under prepared and the most penalized team in the league. Power is earned. Give him more power based on what? If Al Davis was alive he would still be a puppet mouse of a man and coach. Hire a strong GM and hold his arse accountable.

  14. raidingtexas says: Jan 2, 2012 10:54 AM

    Huebris.

  15. mjbulls45 says: Jan 2, 2012 10:54 AM

    Hue is right

    the team didnt want it,

    they didnt come to play,

    atleast someone is pissed, the players play uninspired,

    if the raider players had HALF the raider fans heart and moxy they would be undefeated,

    ya’ll bammas just get ur pay check and keep it moving,

    ya’ll aint nothin, letting ev1 down, al , the state of california, the ppl who follow this team GLOBALLY

    ya’ll players should be ashamed.

  16. unbiased8383 says: Jan 2, 2012 10:55 AM

    This guy is crazy.

  17. 1captain1 says: Jan 2, 2012 10:55 AM

    Hue kept the Raiders in the hunt despite the sorry D.

    FACT.

    Hue kept the Raiders in the hunt when Campbell & McFadden went down.

    FACT.

    Hue has also made the Raiders an offensive power… something they hadn’t been since Bill Callahan was HC.

    FACT.

    Hue is the MAN!

  18. tommytd says: Jan 2, 2012 10:55 AM

    In this P.C. era, it’s refreshing to see a coach get pissed off and speak his mind, especially after listening to all of Lovie’s musings over the years! Jackson reminds me of Ditka just a bit and hopefully someday he’ll get a ring.

  19. KIR says: Jan 2, 2012 10:56 AM

    Fire the defensive coordinator, today! Has anyone ever seen Curry shed a block and make a play? Dude is lost half of the time out there. Need a big time pass rush defensive lineman and another play making linebacker. McClain is solid but slow and can’t cover.

    I honestly can’t say a 1st and 2nd was a bad deal for Carson Palmer. Depends on how he performs next year. DMC, Jacoby Ford, Denarius Moore and Palmer is a very formidable skilled offensive unit. IMO Raiders need additional help at receiver. Darrius Heyward-Bey is just not a starting receiver. He can’t catch with his hands. It’s possible he can get better but I doubt it. He’s not reliable maybe a 4th or 5th receiver. Get rid of Schlesinger. Dude jumps before he catches the ball even if the ball is at waist or chest level absolutely no YAC yards because he falls after jumping and catching the ball. Murphy and Houzmanzada are too slow. Other than that, Raiders should be a playoff contender next year .

  20. eagleswin says: Jan 2, 2012 10:57 AM

    It is time for the raiders to get a new head coach. This one has delusions of grandeur.

  21. raiderredleg says: Jan 2, 2012 10:57 AM

    Bottomline…Hue Jackson can say all he wants, the future success or failure of the Raider Franchise comes down to the ownership of the team and the decisions they make going forward.

    Yes Coach Jackson was Al Davis’ hire, but the kind of micromanagement that Coach Jackson is alluding to in his comments has no place in the NFL anymore (reference Al Davis’ last 20 years of running the franchise).

    As numerous articles have mentioned…Bring in a top flight GM, hire a good Defensive Coordinator, and start rebuilding the roster.

  22. xxwhodatxx says: Jan 2, 2012 10:57 AM

    Delutional much….

  23. 44mpo says: Jan 2, 2012 10:57 AM

    I don’t blame him for being pissed at the team. He should be. I hope he gets a new defensive coordinator who knows what he’s doing. The defense has hurt us all year.
    And the lack of a “killer instinct” is also bothersome to him. Glad to hear that. I hope he shakes things up enough to get some players attention.

  24. Raider-in-PA says: Jan 2, 2012 10:57 AM

    GM. Needed. Now.

    C’mon Mark, do the right thing… take the first step in reviving this team!!

  25. sjsharksfan11 says: Jan 2, 2012 10:58 AM

    He’s just trying to be a black Al Davis. Jackson is a clown

  26. aldavisisthenfl says: Jan 2, 2012 10:58 AM

    I wonder who Hue gives the credit to for all the yellow flags handed out this season?

    Oh I forgot, he’s building a bully……..

  27. pjrhc says: Jan 2, 2012 10:58 AM

    Love the translations… :-)
    I just read that two guys from the Packers front office are being considered for Oakland Management, and they wouldn’t put up with a coach like Jackson. With his poor leadership and Hershel Walker-like-trade for Palmer, he has dug a terrible hole for the Raiders. Not that this Packer fan cares…

  28. sikkcaden says: Jan 2, 2012 10:59 AM

    Hue Jackson needs to take a step back and realize that he’s….Hue Jackson. If he never coached an NFL game ever again, no one would notice.

    If his trade for Carson Palmer is any indication of how this guy is going to be running the team, then the Cheifs, Broncos, and Chargers can each add 2 wins to their win column at the beginning of the season each year he’s there.

  29. whitecastleisafoodgroup says: Jan 2, 2012 11:01 AM

    What a tool.

  30. objectivenflfan says: Jan 2, 2012 11:01 AM

    Hey, you’re cool. We aren’t pissed at you guys.

    Signed,

    The Denver Broncos

  31. ern215 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:01 AM

    get rid of bresnahan now, i still have faith in hue and his offense (hell, they kept us in the game, most games) call up jack del rio or steve spagnuolo, but whatever we do, the defense must…..MUST be the focal point, we also
    could use 2 good right (strong side) offensive linemen (g,t)

  32. jbaxt says: Jan 2, 2012 11:03 AM

    Did Bresnahan’s defense trade a 1st and a 2nd for a QB that should be #2 on your roster next year?

    Pue Jackson cracks me up. He had the power to trade away a draft but wants more now that his 1st dicision backfired on him. I suppose the raider way of losers at the helm lives on.

  33. FinFan68 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:04 AM

    This guy is a clown. He has been the head coach the entire time. It is his fault. He should have been more active. That may be a good locker room speech but when he says it to the media he is trying to separate himself from his team/assistant coaches in order to absolve himself of blame. Sure he had the token comment about his blame but the rest of his comments state how he really feels. This press conference would be enough for me to get rid of him. The Raiders need strong leadership more than anything else.

  34. ern215 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:04 AM

    i guarantee if we get either del rio or spaagnuolo, we will be a top 3 seed for the playoffs next year, we wont need “help” from anyone

  35. kwgator says: Jan 2, 2012 11:05 AM

    The next meaningful game Carson Palmer wins will be the first.

    Bengal Fans thank you for those draft picks

  36. burm61 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:06 AM

    Atleast Rex says its his fault. Jackson shouldn’t be a head coach and whoever takes over this team as GM should say that’s unacceptable.

  37. thetooloftools says: Jan 2, 2012 11:06 AM

    John Madden didn’t make excuses.

  38. justwinbaby29 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:06 AM

    Anyone who says the Palmer trade was bad doesn’t know football. Palmer threw way too many picks but look at his overall numbers coming off the couch. With an AVERAGE defense the Raiders go 10-6 and win the AFC West. Plus Palmer did not have DMC and Moore/Ford missed a bunch of games. He actually turned DHB into a legit NFL starting WR.

    That said, Hue is over his head as GM. Raiders need a GM and new DC. Hue needs to just focus on being a head coach.

  39. tdk24 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:07 AM

    We need a couple players on defense and a new DC. We haven’t had a good DC since Shaw, a decade ago.

  40. eigglesnosuperbowls says: Jan 2, 2012 11:08 AM

    Hugh Jackman is pissed too !

  41. twistedstick says: Jan 2, 2012 11:08 AM

    I can’t say as I blame Hue, and it does seem he has allot on his plat, didn’t like some of the calls he made at times. I never like to see Chuck Bresnahan back runing our defense. The Rams just fired Steve Spagnuolo Oakland be smart and go after him. He help build the Gaints into a great D. I won’t give up on the Raiders Al left a very good bunch of players. Next year should be our year for sure. We did save one No. 1 draft pick “LOL” I’ve been a Raider fan since the very early 60′s it was three days before I found out we beat the Jets in the Hidy game “LOL” Raider fan hold your head up we will win soon JOE

  42. deadeye says: Jan 2, 2012 11:08 AM

    Oakland, please give him more power. I’d love for the Raiders to trade multiple first rounders for {over-the-hill-player} on into the indefinite future.

  43. jbaxt says: Jan 2, 2012 11:13 AM

    @ 1captain1

    Tyler Palko kept the Chiefs in “the hunt” as well but you don’t see anyone saying keep him”.

    FACT!

    Faiders #4 in the west next year, assuming Bronco’s get a QB.

    FACT!

    Campbell’s better than Palmer

    FACT!

    Thinking your team is “in the hunt” when 8-8 wins AFC West.

    HILARIOUS!

  44. dirtdawg55 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:14 AM

    The Raiduhs (yes, that is deliberate) deserve this dunderhead. Just lose baby!

    Guess Al Davis was channeled into the team after all. They played like a bunch of decrepit, feeble, doddering old men.

    As to anyone who thinks Palmer will turn it around, think again. This guy was brutal in Cincy even though he had weapons galore. 16 ints in 9 games wasn’t rust. That was just good ole Palmer up to his usual tricks.

  45. rowdyraider66 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:15 AM

    Love the comments.

    Personally, I am not 100% sold on Hue, yet.

    True, the defense sucks and has for years. It starts with getting a DC that has a clue. Nolan, Spags (make him an offer he can’t refuse) or even Del Rio.

    Culture change, and I think this falls in this category, takes time and drastic measures to correct. Get rid of “scholarship” players, combined with a true DC, will get the D heading in a right direction.

    As far as my first statement, Hue centered the O on an unreliable running back (never finished a season). The O can’t score in the red zone, as evident yesterday and numerous other games. He does not have the personnel management acumen to make moves.

    If the deciding factor to get a legit GM rests with keeping Hue, get rid of him.

  46. rajbais says: Jan 2, 2012 11:15 AM

    How about dumping Carson Palmer???

    If he was a diva wide receiver he would get ALL the blame for ALL of the Raiders’ troubles!!!!

    He threw the interceptions and, according to Jay Glazer, he asked for T.J. Houshmanzadeh (even though TJ had three tryouts before Oakland and was unsuccessful at all three)!!!!

  47. cobrala2 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:17 AM

    I guess I can see how some Oakland fans may like this guy, but at the same time this guy comes off like a fiending power-monger.

  48. huejackson says: Jan 2, 2012 11:17 AM

    Im with Hue, but Raiders do got a excuse this year.. They have had more key injurie than any other team, heck 90% of the offense was out for 8 games..
    Hue is going to have a great Defense next year.. This Defense is going to look brand new..
    Jack Del rio will be the next D cordinator but I think they should ger Romanowski.
    I think Raiders will win the Super Bowl next year, if not then Hue needs to go..
    If Mr Davis was still alive Hue would be fired, Davis fired Cable for being 8-8 Hue promised that would not happen

  49. raidingtexas says: Jan 2, 2012 11:17 AM

    Del Rio isn’t going to Oakland as a DC. If he goes there, it is as Hue’s replacement.

    It’s sad that so many of my fellow Raiders fans are delusional about Hue. The guy is a joke. You don’t think there’s a good reason he never lasted more than one season as an OC on other teams? Each time, he couldn’t get anything better than a positions coach job the next season.

    He was – thankfully – the last bad head coach handpicked by Al. My mindset is that anyone picked by a senile 80 year old man needs to go. Al’s head coach track record is abysmal since firing Shanahan. Even Gruden is debatable. He won a Super Bowl with Dungy’s team and intimate knowledge of the Raiders offense. Then he went on to six crappy seasons before getting dismissed in TB. His success in Oakland had more to do with Gannon than anything else.

    Now that Al is gone and can’t muck this up any more, time to get real coaching into Oakland. So long, Hue. Go be a cancer on another team like you have been everywhere you’ve been.

  50. realnflmaster says: Jan 2, 2012 11:20 AM

    More power? So he can trade 4 first rounders for Manning?

  51. java49 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:20 AM

    I say lets pay a good D-coordinator. Spags should get signed TODAY, not del rio or anyone else. Spags will get that secondary and linebacking corps inline and completely turned around in 2012..

    Hue, call Spagnuolo and lets get this done baby!

  52. firdman7 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:26 AM

    Dear Hue,

    Maybe try getting a better grasp of the English language, so that your players can understand you more clearly. Actually, I prefer you keep it up though, because that way we can continue to back ourselves into the playoffs.

    Signed,
    I love my Broncos, but Tebow won’t be here next year

  53. raiderredleg says: Jan 2, 2012 11:27 AM

    Let’s be real…Mark Davis and Amy Trask had the final say in the Carson Palmer trade…Of course Hue Jackson pushed hard for it and did the leg work, but he didn’t have the authority to pull the trigger.

    As far as the trade…It had to be made to be made…Campbell was gone, the team was contending and Palmer was the only viable option. Timing hurt the Raiders (the trading deadline was just hours a way), but there was NO WAY the franchise could go forward with Kyle Boller as the starting QB.

  54. gln9213 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:27 AM

    Some are saying Hue is dumping on the team but the fact remains, he is right; on the other hand I still think he is one of the worst coaches in the NFL and should be fired along with the rest of the pathetic staff……clearly this team is going to restructure, Hue and the coaches should be fired and players that don’t care will be replaced.

  55. trollhammer20 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:28 AM

    Senile Al continues to guide the Raidahs to irrelevance from the grave.

  57. johnnyjagfan says: Jan 2, 2012 11:32 AM

    Hue is right about how the team played and he’s right about not being able to allow 29 points & be a winner. I don’t know what the solution is, but they need a GM so he can focus on coaching.

    San Diego can close out its season feeling better from knocking a division opponent out of the playoffs. Those things linger for a long time.

  58. tinbender2000 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:34 AM

    As a Raider fan I can say they stunk it up big time (notice I don’t say “we” as I don’t play for them, drives me crazy when people say we about their team). That said Hue you have shown you need less power, not more. You’re bad mouthing Tom Cable on his way out was classless, the defense was way better when he was head coach. YOU are the head coach, the penalties are on you and nobody else. The team needs a strong GM to make GM decisions (find the right players) and keep you accountable. A new defensive coordinator is a must. Mark Davis, Amy Trask, please start running this team like every other NFL team.

  59. nvb1503 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:37 AM

    Palmer has proven he can’t win the big game. He is afraid of his own shadow. He does not have the mental capacity to make good decisions. Palmer could not graduate from SC in over 5+ years of school. Palmer sucks!

  60. cowhawkfan says: Jan 2, 2012 11:38 AM

    How much power did Hur have before Davis’ death? Is he responsible for this roster, except Palmer, or hiring these coaches?

  61. autumnwind999 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:40 AM

    The Palmer trade was a GREAT trade for the Raiders. Guy threw for over 400 yards yesterday and made throws each and every game that few quarterbacks in the league can make.

    If the defense approached anything resembling mediocrity or even just poor, rather than despicable, the Raiders would be in the playoffs today thanks to the Carson Palmer trade.

  62. commandercornpone says: Jan 2, 2012 11:40 AM

    campbell got the skins to 6-2 one year. then he got them to 8-8.

    he got them to 5-7 one time, then collins took them to the playoffs.

    campbell isnt the answer to the raiders’ problems. unless they want to keep losing.

    the chargers were the more talented team and they knocked the raiders out.

  63. nuclearwarfare says: Jan 2, 2012 11:43 AM

    I read this last night on the Inside Bay Area Raiders blog and was a little shocked by everything he said. Certainly, if Al was still alive, Hue would be fired sometime today.

    Bottom line: Hue has gotten the Raiders closer to the playoffs than any coach since 2002. Hue gave the Raiders an actual franchise QB. Hue made the Raiders offensive line better than it was a year before. Hue Jackson will be the coach of the Raiders next year and there’s simply no reason to think otherwise.

    The Raiders are close. Closer than they have been in nearly 10 years. Don’t get pissed and threaten to blow the whole thing up after a tough year, where your owner died, your QB and RB went down. Make the necessary changes and come back next year as a better team.

    I’m a Raiders fan, but I can understand how he’s upset. I’m upset, too. But I’m able to keep things in perspective.

  64. dlk81 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:43 AM

    Maybe hue should just worry about coaching. They were doing fine until he felt he had to take on gm responsibilities after Al passed. When the season is over is not the time to finally get fired up, chuck should have been fired weeks ago. He is also pissed that he gave up so much for Palmer when he ended up not being a that much better than boller. I would like to see hue at least get one more year where he can build the staff he wants, remember chuck was hired before he was hired as head coach, Al must of maid him keep him

  65. addict2sport says: Jan 2, 2012 11:43 AM

    Poor example of what a leader should be. Way to separate yourself from the team and take zero accountability. Shut the hell up and coach! I’d like to see them hire a solid GM and clean house. Go after Jeff Fisher! Hue needs to go call plays at a JC.

  66. sonoco says: Jan 2, 2012 11:44 AM

    Hue Jackson will be a great coach and lead the Raiders to the promised land.

  71. autumnwind999 says: Jan 2, 2012 11:49 AM

    Hue is an excellent coach. It’s no coincidence that the offense went from last in the league for several years to averaging about 25 ppg as soon as he came along as offensive coordinator.

    Now we need a real defense and that starts with a top-notch defensive coordinator. Somebody whose schemes don’t put a slow MLB and 3rd string strong safety on Calvin Johnson at a key moment in the season. Or that draws up a defense that can force ONE SINGLE PUNT by a San Diego Chargers team that had nothing to play for in a must-win game for this franchise.

    Defense is not Hue’s side of the ball and Breshnahan was not a Hue hire either. Give him more time, a full off-season with Carson Palmer, a healthy Darren McFadden and a D coordinator like Mike Nolan and the Raiders will be a dominant team in this league under Hue Jackson.

  72. tdrundmc says: Jan 2, 2012 11:49 AM

    Wow, did Denver ever back into this thing. If Rivers doesn’t fumble a routine snap, San Diego wins the west. If Succop can hit one of two field goals last week, KC wins the west. And Oakland was just too banged up.

    It will be interesting to see what Palmer looks like with a full offseason to prepare. One of these years, McFadden will play 16 games. With some better tacklers in the back 7 of the defense, they’ll be in the mix again next year.

    The idea of KC getting Charles, Berry and company back while playing a last place schedule next year should concern the rest of the division as well.

  74. yallbetuckfards says: Jan 2, 2012 11:57 AM

    Funny how all you fans of other teams seem to be an expert on all things Raiders. Had any of you listened to Hue take the blame all year in every press conference, even though it was obvious that the defense couldnt stop a pee wee team, you would understand what he is saying in this article is finally the truth.

    Hue was hired to run the offense, which carried the team all year until all the playmakers got hurt. The defense has always been Al’s baby. Outside of a bad offense in KC, this defense stopped noone all year.

    I wish Hue did this more….stop coddling these lames. If they suck, rid em. If they cant stop drawing flags, rid em. Dont take the blame when they suck, hold the players accountable for their ineptness. Be like Parcells, not like Rex Ryan.

  75. rdrs68 says: Jan 2, 2012 12:00 PM

    Good for Hue he is saying things that would never have been tolerated if big Al were still with us. Hue needs to take his share of the blame but for far to long players and coaches have not been called out for sloppy play and poor work habits. This may be what is needed to change the culture in Oakland.

  76. autumnwind999 says: Jan 2, 2012 12:05 PM

    Del Rio had 3 winning seasons in 9. No way would he replace Hue.

    Even someone like the great Jeff Fisher had far more 8-8 or sub-.500 seasons (11) than winning seasons (6).

    Hue is not going anywhere, nor should he. Easily the best Raiders coach since Gruden, who incidentally went 8-8 in his first two seasons as Raiders HC, and may prove to be even better.

  77. raiders757 says: Jan 2, 2012 12:06 PM

    Hue is a first year coach, so I won’t call for his head after one season. Still, the last thing he needs is more power. He needs to just stick with being the head coach and leave it at that.

    Chuck Bresnahan was a Davis “yes man” and has no business remaining with the team. I wanted to puke the day he was hired.

    The Raiders are poised to become a good team for the next few years to come, but only if the powers that be make the right decisions. Get a real GM and hold everyone accountable from the top to the bottom.

    SMH at the blogger. This is lazy journalism. Lazy and clumsy.

    Al Davis was the real Defensive mastermind, it was his vision. Bresnahan was hired to materialize it. The great leader passed away and Bresnahan deviated from Al’s design and it cost the Raiders dearly.

    The translation that you all got wrong is really…I’ll put the blame on me during the season, but when the bullets stop flying its being placed on the right shoulders.

    We all believe in Hue Jackson. He’s not going anywhere. We need Mike Nolan as DC, and Singletary needs to come with him. This defense needs accountability and discipline and Mike Singletarty can adjust the hearts and attitudes of men. He laid that foundation for the 49ers resurgence.

    Deliberate and original. If you could have worked in “Faiders” and “Rai ers” it would have been an all-time classic post.

    Jackson needs to shut his mouth. He doesn’t need to take a stronger hand in running that team. He needs to focus on being the head coach, and see if he can have some success with that. Oakland needs a GM and a legitimate DC. Jackson needs to cut guys like Mitchell and Giordono, sit guys that are out there doing their own thing, and do a better job with the basics, like clock management and communicating with his quarterback.

  82. thomas2727 says: Jan 2, 2012 12:20 PM

    I said Carson Palmer had built in excuses back in October when he got traded to the Raiders.

    I was right. You can’t have it both ways people. Can’t say one minute Carson is great and the next minute he was not prepared.

    Fact is he turned the ball over too much. He seems to make poor decisions at the worst times.

    Look at Alex Smith this season. He has nowhere near the arm Carson has but he did not turn the ball over. Raiders would have been better off with a game manager.

    Oh and the bully the Raiders were building on defense. Not even a 16 game healthy DMC could have saved them.

  83. nvb1503 says: Jan 2, 2012 12:22 PM

    Yeah.. THAT’S the answer…

    More power for Hue.

    Except….NOT!!!

    He needs less to do. He needs a boss to handle the football operations and rein him in. He needs to have the offensive play-calling duties taken away and given to the OC.

    Mostly, he needs to stop acting like a spectator and saying things like “they didn’t look like they wanted it”.

    Exactly who’s job is it to get the TEAM ready to play, Hue?

    He has consistently been unable to get the team ready to play. It’s not something that just popped up this Sunday. It’s been going on all season.

    Hue should officially be on the hot seat. I don’t think he’ll get fired, but he sure needs to have his asre handed to him.

  86. caliraiderz says: Jan 2, 2012 12:28 PM

    Speaking as a life long Raiders fan you have to be extremely disappointed in the effort put on the field yesterday. Any true fan (blind fan) could tell
    through out the season the glaring weakness was the def. cord. who never should have been rehired to begin with. Bresh is a bum and couldnt gameplan a high school squad. We really need to bring in some new blood as a new d cord. to change the defensive philosophy that has plagued the team for years here. Everthing fell into place for us and we could still not pull it off. Putting rolondo mcclain on deep wr coverages is flat out stupid. The def backfield is garbage and needs to be completely overhauled. I like Huffs instensity out there at times but Branch is the only one worth keeping around next year imo.

    I think with a full offseason of Palmer working with the young recievers things will get much betteer, but i would def. go after marcus colston once free agency begins. DHB really stepped up this year and i never thought i would say it but he has earned his spot in the lineup. With a whole training camp i think the offense could realy be something special next year. They just really need to focus on shoring up the LB and db positions. Fire Breshnahan NOW! He has to go . Bring in a GM asap and lets keep this little bit of momentum going into 2012! At least we were in this until the last week of the season which is something Raider fans havent been able to say for a very long time.

    Anyone who says the Palmer trade was bad doesn’t know football. Palmer threw way too many picks but look at his overall numbers coming off the couch. With an AVERAGE defense the Raiders go 10-6 and win the AFC West. Plus Palmer did not have DMC and Moore/Ford missed a bunch of games. He actually turned DHB into a legit NFL starting WR.
    ————-
    The Palmer trade was bad. I don’t care what he did or didn’t do this year. You just can’t trade a 1st and a 2nd for a QB who, even in his prime, couldn’t win a playoff game. No other team in the NFL would have even given up just a 2nd round pick for Palmer. And DHB was actually playing his best football when Campbell was the QB. If anything, Campbell turned him into a legit starting WR.

    In the minds of most coaches, I think that they believe that the players are almost always to blame, especially when the players are not doing what the offensive and defensive schemes lay out for them. Of course, the schemes might suck and there may be little to no accountability demanded by the coaches who have implemented said schemes.

    (That’s the Raiders’ problem. You don’t blow a playoff chance like they did without everyone being to blame.)

  96. conjecture101 says: Jan 2, 2012 1:00 PM

    This guy is one of the biggest cowards in the history of professional sports. Al Davis was all about the players, and this clown comes in his first year and throws his players under the bus.

    He is a disgrace to the organization and to all true Raider fans. Al gives him his first and probably only opportunity to be a head coach and, just weeks after his passing starts to destroy the Raider image and philosophy to replace it with his own cookie-cutter, copy-cat ideas. Shame on Hue.

  99. conjecture101 says: Jan 2, 2012 1:09 PM

    It’s kind of ironic that the players who gave up the most plays; Sheppard & Giordono, were both cut by Al Davis in training camp.

    DHB & Boss put their bodies on the line to win the game, two guys Hue mistreated after Al passed.

    As for the D- line, yea the didn’t play great. The fact is I don’t think Richard Seymour has any respect for Hue Jackson and I for one don’t blame him.

    For all the delusional people who thought Rod Woodson would be an asset to this organization, at least now realize they were dead wrong. The guy thinks he knows but he really has no idea. Stanford Routt regressed this season and none of our rookies really improved (not that Hue gave them the chance.) People thought playing more zone would help LOL. Teams ripped our zone to shreds. KC played single high safety vs Denver and gave up 3 points, but i guess that doesn’t work. LOL

  104. lostsok says: Jan 2, 2012 1:30 PM

    The Oakland coaching was pathetic, especially on the defensive side. They would telegraph their zone blitz, including who was rotating into coverage; San Diego only needed to cover the blitzer long enough to eat up Wimley on Jackson. Just amazingly bad.

    Hue Jackson is a moron if he thinks the players are the only reason Oakland lost.

  106. psychoraider904 says: Jan 2, 2012 1:52 PM

    I can’t believe some of the comments that I’m reading. First if you’re not a Raiders fan, then you shouldn’t be commenting on something you have no clue about. And if you one of the Raiders fans that are calling for Hue Jacksons job, then you’re an idiot. Whens the last time our offense has played this well? Hue is the reason for that. Hue took the blame all season when the defense decided not to show up. Now that the season is over, I would be mad as a Raiders fan if he didn’t make me feel like there was gonna be changes made this offseason. We’re a legit D-Coordinator and couple decent corners away from being a legitmate threat in the AFC. I hate the fact that we missed our opportunity this season, but without Hue Jackson, we’re not even close to having the season we did this year. Hue is the man and he’ll get some things done this offseason, and we’ll be back next year. But first things first, get rid of the cancer that is Chuck Bresnahan.

  107. realfootballfan says: Jan 2, 2012 2:00 PM

    Quite frankly, he didn’t lie about anything so I really don’t know how he threw anybody under the bus. He didn’t say anyone’s name, just said they didn’t want it enough. What exactly would you geniuses call it when their defense didn’t make the Chargers punt all day with a playoff berth on the line.

    That follows what happened late in that Detroit game on defense. Bottom line is that they scored 26 points, just like they scored 27 points a couple of weeks ago vs. Detroit, and that should be good enough on most Sundays unless you have a defense this bad.

    It’s refreshing to see a guy so passionate about his team and want to win this much. However, I suspect many have problems with him that are unrelated to whether he can coach or not.

  108. cags777 says: Jan 2, 2012 3:15 PM

    psychoraider904, I shouldn’t have an opinion on Hue Jackson’s comments because I am not a Raiders fan? Please. I’m not some troll who comes on here to bash the Raiders organization or Jackson. But his comments yesterday were completely ridiculous and unprofessional. This is one of the last things he needs to do in order to help players buy into the program he’s selling and the team to remain competitive.

    Although the Raiders do need a new defensive coordinator, I would also caution you about not holding Jackson accountable for the team’s struggles this season.

    I would respectfully remind you that it was your coach who lobbied for Carson Palmer in exchange for this year’s first round pick and next year’s second round pick. It was also your coach who couldn’t fix the stupid penalties that is costing your team games.

    I think Jackson can coach and I like his passion. But he has a long way to go and prove himself being worthy of the power he is commanding. As it is showing, giving him more power may have consequences that may set your team back for years to come.

  109. cgalaxy says: Jan 2, 2012 3:42 PM

    What Hue saw in Bresnahan from their time together in Cincy I have no idea–Chuck’s defense was completely inept during his 3 seasons there aside from getting a lot of turnovers in the first half of his first season running the defense. I and every Bengals fan knew the Raiders D would suck this year.

  110. torturedraiderfan says: Jan 2, 2012 4:17 PM

    There are a few times this year I thought Hue Jackson might be smoking something funny………but if he thinks he should have more control over the organization, I’m convinced he’s spending way too much time on the bong. We need a GM and we need one badly.

  111. raideralex says: Jan 2, 2012 4:57 PM

    “I’m going take a stronger hand in this whole team, this whole organization,”

    Hue’s not asking for anything. Al Davis already granted him this. Hue is in charge of the entire operation for the near future.

    It’s why he was allowed to make the trades and roster maneuverings that he already did.

    He’ll have an entire off-season to get rid of sloppy Al carry-overs.

  112. ceezorg says: Jan 2, 2012 5:39 PM

    It’s amusing to read all the Palmer sucks, Campbell was better comments. First round picks are OVERRATED.
    Denarius Moore – 5th round
    Jacoby Ford – 4th round
    Taiwan Jones – 4th round
    Stefen Wisniewski – 2nd round
    Jared Veldheer – 3rd round
    Tommy Kelly – UNDRAFTED free agent
    Matt Shaughnessy – 3rd round
    Lamarr Houston – 2nd round
    Michael Bush – 4th round

    As compared to their first round busts:
    Michael Huff
    Rolando McClain
    Jamarcus Russell
    Fabian Washington
    Robert Gallery

    No McFadden, no Ford, no Moore, this team would have finished 5-11 with Boller. Hue also knew Jason Campbell was limited especially in his ability to throw the deep and read defenses. Yeah the team needs a GM but their drafting is way better now. This was only his first year and I still remember those dark ages between 2003-2009 with Andrew Walter, Jalwalrus Russell and a bunch of other no names who couldn’t put up more than 10 points a game.

  113. vipod4ever says: Jan 2, 2012 6:11 PM

    He’s 100% on the mark. A new gm will make the changes at the D positions, and Hue can concentrate on the O. This team is 2 or 3 personel moves on D to dominate next year. Palmer makes those tds in redzone with more time in camp…11+ wins.

  114. coachdavis2010 says: Jan 2, 2012 7:09 PM

    Hue is right on the money, I watched every single game this year didn’t miss anyone of them. Did the offensive have some poor showings yep? But in contrast those poor outings by the offense didn’t cost them the season. All you have to do is go back to the second game of the season when the Raiders where slaying the Bills just to see them come back, same with the Lions get up by 13 to watch them walk down the field. I hope he does get more control, while I didn’t like what we gave up to get Palmer, I can just imagine what the season would have been if Boller was back there. But I don’t want to see Campbell leave either personally for the first 6 games he actually managed team well, and Darren McFadden has to stay healthy next season, having him on the field changes the way the defense plays.

  115. lostking1 says: Jan 3, 2012 12:26 AM

    Reminds me of a few old raider coaches, remember Callahan said this was the dumbest football team in the NFL! Norv turners weekly frustrations on the sidelines, stressed out Joe bugle, clueless look of art shell, Lane kiffin could not believe in the team. Even John gruden was like “why” do we do this to ourselves.
    I believe in hue Jackson. He is in at the right time. He can’t control everything but he has to get staff to control the players better. He has to delegate he can’t do it all himself. The past two years we built a good core of players and scheme. This off season has to take it to the next level. Decide what you are going to do with running backs, and three high profile qb’s for next year and get a d coordinator and better defensive backs! Good luck hue. Keep the passion. This team needs a little kick in the rear!

    There is a number of things the Oakland raiders have to do to get better. First things first we all know chuck bresnahn needs to go. Go out and get a proven d.coordinator who was not in the Ufl last year. 2. We need a GM to run this team am I the only person who wonders who in the heck makes decisions for this team. It can’t be our head coach because even though I love hue he goes off of emotion too much. Let get a real GM and let hue do his job. 3. If hue doesn’t make that trade for Palmer were not having this conversation where exactly were the bears went straight down and pissed that we didn’t make a move. If Palmer gets a full camp he will be one of the best quarterback’s in the league. I like us having an elite quarterback. Campbell was good but Palmer is great. 4. McFadden is my boy but he is glass on the field. Wtf he breaks his big toe nail and is out the rest of the season. Running backs are a dime a dozen why not see what we can get for him now. I personally think he is elongating his career by always acting hurt. 5. Curry gave us some help but I think McCain after that shot in the newspaper should be traded. We don’t need dumb players who don’t represent the black and silver right. He fuels the fire for raider haters who say we are idiots who suck and like to fight. Plus to me he is a bust. Our dbS can be good I think with the right play calling and help from better linebacking. Our d line is good I think we could just need a couple pieces and a real d coach and will be there we need a few more players who have heart and establish team captains. Lastly 6. We need to establish our own place. Oakland coliseum can be loud but if we invested in a smaller stadium where we can be right in top of the field we can have a better home field advantage the wide open Oakland coliseum. A place to call our own. A real black hole. A place where hosting teams font want to come too. Raider nation and the franchise has to turn its image around this whole next year will be different crap is old. I’m 26 and that’s all I ever hear. Ill bleed black and silver always but c’mon man lets get back to being commuted to excellence!

McFadden is my boy but he is glass on the field. Wtf he breaks his big toe nail and is out the rest of the season. Running backs are a dime a dozen why not see what we can get for him now. I personally think he is elongating his career by always acting hurt. 5. Curry gave us some help but I think McCain after that shot in the newspaper should be traded. We don’t need dumb players who don’t represent the black and silver right. He fuels the fire for raider haters who say we are idiots who suck and like to fight. Plus to me he is a bust. Our dbS can be good I think with the right play calling and help from better linebacking. Our d line is h I think we could just need a couple pieces and a real d coach and will be there we need a few more players who have heart and establish team captains. Lastly 6. We need to establish our own place. Oakland coliseum can be loud but if we invested in a smaller stadium where we can be right in top of the field we can have a better home field advantage the wide open Oakland coliseum. A place to call our own. A real black hole. A place where hosting teams font want to come too. Raider nation and the franchise has to turn its image around this whole next year will be different crap is old. I’m 26 and that’s all I ever hear. Ill bleed black and silver always but c’mon. man lets get back to being commited to excellence!

    You know the rules of American football are to throw to your own team, right?

    He’s not even a top 10 QB in the league with a stud roster….quit huffin’ the silver and black paint.

    I can’t say enough about how Hue has turned this offense around in a short period of time. We went from averaging about 13 points a game a couple years ago to about 25+ this year. Hue Jackson is not on the menu for termination. Our problem is we have a bunch of 3rd string DB’s going up against 1st string receivers. These face-guarding DB’s have gotta go. If they had any clue to look for the ball instead of playing the receiver, we’d lead the league in interceptions instead of penalties. Let’s get some guys that aren’t afraid to turn their head around and make plays instead of trying to prevent plays.

    Hue Jackson is the Tim “Tool Man” Taylor of NFL coaches.
