NFL  > Oakland Raiders  > Was Hue Jackson working for Cincinnati all along?
January 11, 2012, 12:55 PM
Think about it conspiracy folks it all falls into place when you think about it.


Hue knew Al would die in mid-season and so he made a deal with Cinncinnati to get them the Raiders draft picks for the next couple of seasons. Even crazy Al would not have made this deal, why? Simply because it is the dumbest deal in the current era of the NFL.

Which is why I think maybe Mr. Jackson will cashing checks from the Bengals soon.


Let's see which team hires him, ex-head coaches don't stay unemployed for long.

You are giving Hue WAY too much credit.

nice, the conspiracy reference is pure Al. jackmouth end up in kc where they will make a few plays but he'll screw it up in the end.

Hue is not that bright - or he would have been able to remedy the penalty sickness my Raiders had. Anyway, I think he mortgaged so much with Palmer in order to make the playoffs - and making that would have saved his job when the new regime took over. Luckily.....this was not the case.

I really would just like to have a coach for more than one season, to see if he can make sense of the mess the Raiders have been....BTW I am glad that Jackson is gone.

So who is to blame? Al Davis. Davis was the one who made Jackson only accountable to him. Jackson on the other hand due to desperation and stupidity abused his power once Davis died and like the captain of a sinking ship Jackson made the wrong decision in trying to right it by trading for Palmer. But some people claim that is not what got him fired. What got him fired was that he did not want to relinquish power, he did not want to answer to a GM- now he will sink from being a HC to maybe an OC. His kind of actions will make owners very wary of hiring him as a HC in the near future, unless they are senile.

Cincinnati owes Jackson big time. If he had not come to Cincinnati's rescue they would have still had to pay Palmer BUCKO BUCKS and Palmer would have retired. Plus the draft picks allowed Cincinnati a jump start in their rebuilding process with 2 back to back drafts that have paid off big time .

It was not solely Jackson that destroyed the Oakland franchise, Al Davis deserves much of the credit in his final years. Including this year #1 draft pick the Raiders only have 3 1st round picks remaining on their team that they drafted . Janikowski 2000, McFadden 2008, DJ Hayden 2013. THe last 2 years the Raiders have had to let most of their team go because they could not afford the lavish salaries Al Davis heaped upon them. Then to make things even worse "The Monster from the LSU Lagoon" still haunts the Raiders. The Raiders had to cough up an additional $3 million dollars the players union declared the Raiders owed Jamarcus Russell. Russell took the money and went to Reno Nevada and bet it on the Raiders to win the Super Bowl. If they win, Russell will be able to buy the Raiders.
