Further to Rated-R Superstar's post on the Hue Jackson hiring, we have finally an official position from the Raiders (John Herrera) regarding Jackson's position in relation to JaMarcus Russell. I also include a quote from Tom Cable who is definitely acting like he is the head coach: From Paul Gutierrez of the SacBee: Received a pleasant call from Raiders senior executive John Herrera, who was reaching out in response to today's column on new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. Herrera wanted to "set the record straight" on the thinking that Jackson was brought in to "only" work with JaMarcus Russell. "Hue Jackson was hired to work with the entire offense," Herrera said, "regardless of who the quarterback might be." Reading between the lines, that means nothing is guaranteed Russell, though he will have the opportunity to compete for the starting quarterback position. "[JaMarcus] is just one man on this football team," Tom Cable said KHTK's Mike Lamb Thursday. "He knows he's got to better, we know he's got to get better, but everyone on this team, coaching staff and players alike, has got to get better."
