    Al Davis is still running the franchise from the grave.

    That overtime loss to them is stinging my chefs right now.

    Re: Wow, Raiders fire Jackson after one 8-8 season

    I wonder if their draft strategy will change any or just go after the fastest guy on the board again?

    Re: Wow, Raiders fire Jackson after one 8-8 season

    Just the Raiders being the Raiders. The only surprising part of this is that it happened after Al Davis died. Maybe this was done as one last hurrah for Al? Figured the coaching carousel would at least slow down after Al died, but guess not.

    Apparently Jackson didn't get along with the new GM. Nonetheless, it's embarrassing.

    Re: Wow, Raiders fire Jackson after one 8-8 season

    Why would anyone want to coach there other than for money? It's a coaching death trap to be in Oakland. And people thought things would change and be different now that Al Davis is gone?

    Don't know why this is surprising. A new GM will always want to bring in their own coach.

    Re: Wow, Raiders fire Jackson after one 8-8 season

    Jackson went all in to get Carson Palmer with the promise that Palmer was their ticket to getting back in the playoffs. Fail.

    I just dont understand how this happens when Jackson had them in a place they havent been for a while. Unless he really wasnt getting along with higher personnel.
