Say It Aint So


OAKLAND

Mortensen reported that new Raiders’ general manager Reggie McKenzie may consider replacing coach Hue Jackson.

His take: Jackson’s possible firing has been the elephant in the room for days. There have been rumblings of it and Mortensen’s report brings light to the situation. There has been talk that Jackson took too much power after owner Al Davis died in October, that he gave up too much to get quarterback Carson Palmer and that he rubbed players the wrong way. The fact that the Raiders lost four of their final five games including a Week 17 home loss to San Diego with the AFC West title on the line could go against Jackson. There is no doubt Jackson is a talented coach, but perhaps McKenzie will want to start fresh and bring in his own coach. Schefter said Green Bay assistant Winston Moss could be a target. Moss was a candidate in Oakland in the past and he was a favorite of Davis. Like McKenzie, Moss is a former Raiders linebacker. Is Jackson definitely on the chopping block? I wouldn’t say that, but it is a situation to watch in the coming days.

The Raiders cant escape change. The trend of a new HC every year or two is not stable ground for a franchise, but if Hue has lost the locker room that is unacceptable. Im not sure he has and I sure hope that he hasnt.

Also, I want Winston Moss as the DC not the HC. Yet another rookie coach. No one knows how that will turn out. I am hoping we keep Hue and have solid hiring and signings on the defensive side.

What do you guys think?
