    He struck me as a big talker but with little substance.

    They went 8-8 geez. They were a second half collapse away from winning their division. He didn't even get a whole year with his biggest acquisition (Palmer). Even without Al Davis, the Raiders continue to befuddle . . .

    Expect the JESTS to go after him. They reportedly wanted him as OC when Ryan got there.

    Bad news for the AFCW. This could be a sign that there's competence in the Raiders organization again.

    Except that they traded away their picks in the panic to sign Palmer and win now. Oops!

    I don't think he was a great HC, but still, I don't think he deserved to be fired, not after one decent or mediocre season.

    Reggie McKenzie is the new GM who is coming from the Packers. Seems like he is starting to put his stamp on the org.

    The good news is, as you pointed out, the lack of draft picks. Also, the Raiders are looking at the second highest 2012 cap number in the league, so that should slow down any improvement.

    The bad news is that there's a new sheriff in town, and that sheriff has the Ron Wolf seal of approval.

    He's responsible for the Carson Palmer trade. He deserves to be tarred and feathered, nevermind just getting fired.

    My point is that neither he nor the Raiders have really allowed the acquisition of Palmer to fully play out. To me, it looks like a horrible, embarassing trade. But Jackson should have been given a second bite at the apple.

    Why allow a "coach" who made that trade and still failed to beat 8-8 a second bite at the apple, if you don't think he's got the stuff and you're coming in to turn around a franchise that's been a disaster in recent years? This isn't crazy all promoting his O-line coach and then firing him after a surprisingly good 8-8 season. This is a housecleaner axing a guy who led his team to a disappointing 8-8 season.

    Toss in that post season press conference and I don't have any real issue with the move.

    I hope the Patriots hire him this week, just to make everyone in Denver flip out even more. :D

    This firing is extremely pre-mature. It's ridiculous how so many NFL execs are all about "my guys." I'd love to see these NFL execs work in management in any other type of business. That team loved Hue Jackson and they loved playing for him even more. Raiders just took 5 steps backwards.

    Wow! That was faster than I figured it would be. I thought that he might reasonably expect another year to sort things out, but it seems the Al Davis machine is still pulling the levers of power after all.

    Just imagine the hue and cry from the media when the Jets hire Jackson to help them defeat Oakland in the AFCCG! Oh, wait...

    BB to Oakland: "Would you like your second-rounder back? We'll give it back to you straight up for your first next year. . . ." :D

    Lol too bad that might be gone too (they gave Cincy a 2013 conditional first or second rounder in the Palmer deal)
