I would love to hire both from a fan's perspective because they are certainly great coache's and have helped there teams tremendously. Jackson worked with Flacco and made him a great game manger which is what we need for our offense. If Russell could just sit his ass down and learn the game from a coach like Jackson we would see improvement. Waufle would also help a DL full of potential reach its peak.
Only prob with the hireings is the same as in Raiders past, which is that Al is the one that hires these coaches and our head coach really doesen't have much say in who becomes part of his staff. Al should really give up a bit of control, because like this our coaches have a hard time establishing chemistry.
I like Hue Jackson, but I think that you guys are misconceiving what his role in Baltimore is/was. Cam Cameron was the guy in Flacco's ear, much like he was in SD with Rivers. Now Hue did play some part in Joe's progression, but he's not the main reason for it.
The Raiders have predictably denied multiple reports that Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson was interviewing for the Raiders head coaching job.
"I would vociferously deny that any head coaching interviews are taking place while [Al Davis] is still meeting with Tom Cable," Raiders senior executive John Herrera said.
Both reports about Jackson came from Baltimore, so it's not a stretch to say that people close to Jackson believe he's got a chance for the top job. The Raiders say Jackson was just meeting for the offensive coordinator job.
NFL Network's Mike Lombardi said that Jackson's meeting was more "exploratory" and that Cable was set to meet with Davis again Friday.
I'm guarantee you that Herrera pulled out the thesaurus for that one.
