    After a fairly successful season turning around the Oakland Raiders, Jackson is out. It seems the new GM wants to bring his own guy in. Add him to the list of possible OCs.

    Thoughts?

    Out of hand, no. Would he really fit in offensively with the organizations philosophy?

    Looking into him though, he has done some interesting things.

    (Catastrophe)

    Aside from Atlanta in 2007, he had a lot of success in this league. I personally thought he helped breathe some life into the Raiders this season after a cloud seemed to hang over the franchise for a full decade.

    Loved Coach Jackson, but he went on a power trip after the death of Al Davis.

    Maybe, he'll have the Browns send us 2 first rounders for Palmer if he gets the Browns job. :chuckles:

    Hue Jackson seems like one of the last people Pat Shurmur would be interested in bringing in to coordinate his offense. Jackson's air-it-out, vertical passing philosophy is antithetical to Shurmur's 3 yard sideline, dink and dunk system.

    Not likely...

    I think Mike Sherman and Brad Childress are the two most likely candidates considering their ties to the FO, experience and they've been running the WCO for years... Also don't forget the minute but important connection of them sharing Bob LaMonte as an agent..

    I also wouldn't be surprised if Whipple gets elevated to OC...

    None of that is going to lead to much of an improvement with the coaching.

    The crappiest part of Hue's situation is that his QB is left behind. I think he got an unfair shake, to be honest. He was on his way to making that team better and I believe next year would have been his chance to get the Raiders back into the playoffs. Too bad that franchise had no succession plan even though Al Davis was the crypt keeper for at least 2 years. Now they blow it up and start over again, just when somebody was breathing life into the organization.

    I think he'll get another shot to be a head coach, perhaps even next year.

    At the same time, it appeared Mangini was starting to turn things around. Despite the conflict in philosophy, Holmgren kept him for a year, and it bit him in the ass.
