    This is why The Raiders can't put a winning team out there consistently.

    They went 8-8 and look to be a promising team next season with Carson Palmer under the helm so, I don't understand the logic behind firing him...unless if they're getting a big name as a HC.

    Big deal, coaching changes don't bring the trauma it used to, most of the time you can add 2-3 wins with a new coach. That's a 10 win season for them.

    Hue Jackson's wiki page is already updated.

    He was fired on January 10, 2012.

    Actually they were going to be better if Jason Campbell didn't go down. He was much better than Palmer. Wow all that hoopla with winning for Al and kicking us in the nads only to have this dude fired at the end of everything.

    I agree with that. But even worse for the Raiders, they gave up a 1st and 2nd to get Palmer, which further hurts the development of the team. Campbell was looking slightly above average before he went down and kept his team in the game by protecting the ball well. Palmer on the other hand looked like Brett Favre, putting up a good game one week, and throwing 3 INTs the next. Jackson was pretty well tied to Carson Palmer too, so I do wonder if Palmer will choose to retire now that Hue is out of the picture. Man would that be something...

    They are probably going to hire a big name coach.

    Al Davis' son hired Reggie McKenzie from Green Bay as GM. IIRC, he also interviewed here and got beat out by Rick Smith.

    Right now the name you're hearing the most is Winston Moss who's a LB Coach with the Packers (as well as being Asst. Head Coach).

    Al Davis

    If you think about it for a moment it all makes sense really.

    I did like Jackson. Thought he was leading them in the right direction and I thought he was doing well with Campbell before the injury.

    Oh well.

    Word among some Raiders fans I know is that there's talk of Wade getting interviewed with them after the post-season

    Al Davis has most likely been dead since 1997. They just decided to bury him this year.

    If your child acts up in public it is the parents lack of disclipines.

    If you team breaks an NFL recored for penalties it is the Head Coaches fault for lack of disclipine.

    Nowadays, coaching for the Raiders is coaching suicide!
