12.8: The Lo Down -- Hue Jackson for Coach of the Year?
Thanks for getting your -- down here on CSN Bay Area dot com parents out there rat alongside Lorenzo Neal Raiders -- -- the lowdown. We talked about distractions last week in Miami -- another to be distraction their line backing. Yeah if I did that was more -- -- claim it and now -- -- the McClain rather than the other great linebacker to you know get drafted unfortunately that incident. You know it gets arrested he's in jail. This side it was tough. I don't think that that really played a part of this Raiders. Lack of effort I would say. I'll take right now go to Jackson here it is I won eleven -- a coach Jackson and the raider nation what they're doing. One thing and you look at hue Jackson what this man stands for he's -- -- he's lost playmakers he you know McFadden he's got no receivers that are really good vertical he lost we lost fourteen loss to kick returner now that had four returns. You lost a lot you lost that -- football and look at the national football it comes down to three things that third comes and kicking game at third offense and a third defense there's three phases of football and they lost a lot of players but yet still. Do you see coach hue Jackson looking and Cameron saying you know what this team is me and were gonna rise to occasion play good football he's not making excuses and I Pat White meant for. They're still in the thick of things below you can make a point that he might be a coach -- lot he -- in the 49ers would have. Part by the third year but guess what -- Smith hasn't been hurt Vernon Davis Frank Gore and the names you mentioned. They've all gone down the Raiders are still I think and you know obviously last Campbell now that armor so a lot of moves make could he'd be considered. You coach of the year. You'd be remiss -- you didn't things considered. Coach hue Jackson for coach of the year and I mean hardball yet he's gonna probably -- coaching here but if you be remiss if you didn't know who Jackson's name in there and tell you right now. To have Campbell well as he was playing for the Oakland Raiders in this guy goes down with the collar -- breaks his collarbone and you have to go make a drastic -- Poor guy who hasn't been who's been on the count hasn't indoor in the system who doesn't know the system actually who hasn't been blown up playing football. And now you only mean so you got rid of him that's like taken -- Alex Smith now Whitney and now opening -- -- rookie it yet but guess what cat had been in training camp this guy hasn't. -- -- -- -- come off the count -- now that's like taking it taken away with Frank Gore means to the San Francisco 49ers frank -- great in the passing game Frank Gore is a great runner he brings so much stability to this offense so let's take francoeur away from the San Francisco 49ers. Alex Gordon for let's take away. Crabtree Michael Crabtree you know waiting because we got for going now we have another receiver and I considered I mean the Raiders that are that are that's hurt. Now let's take a look at let's take away Vernon Davis now. -- what the San Francisco 49ers be sitting here attended to. It's hard to say. But you still in spite of the Raiders are still fighting this coach -- has these guys -- sound the alarm in these guys are standing up in their -- -- but guys and have a math assignments to do this right here. And do this right here. Because this guy Tim Tebow be Tony Clark and Boldin got a big. If we can't get this guy I don't lose I'm telling you this -- on Fuego he's on fire last week he shut the critics up back on the ball all over the field why because you watched the Minnesota Vikings or DBs with. Bob fallen out I thought they might have been quite shape and I don't always borrow their. But you look at Tim Tebow what this man stands for if you believe in. Your mother do you believe in your father if you believe in the coach I guess what you start to play when your -- so you can somewhat costly tell you can't. Guess what now when you look at Tim Tebow when you look at those guys on the team. They believe in that made it an even though he sees spiritual police guess what it's been an infectious to the team that organization and now guess what they believe that he's got the direct song called -- opposition is so. You know it is good that a team that is gonna make the playoffs Aaron Rodgers they're undefeated twelve now. All the pressure on him and the Raiders sneak a win in a -- like. Put this arrest and they have to win this didn't let -- said that the Broncos but. Colon and the Green Bay it's tough those West Coast teams it's 36 degrees on Sunday kicked up a cold weather game for a West Coast team that's not. Well you know what figures to do what's gonna come down the one thing in this game I hope it's -- I hope it's -- and I want to see with the Raiders -- really mean that because I'll tell you right now I like my -- if I got a guy by the name of the people with them too big for the big running back from the -- Michael and Michael Bush Michael let Michael Bush brings to the you know I like my -- when -- have Michael -- -- what the big -- does he. He can get downhill and if it's cold in the weather is bad. Look for Michael Bush to get heavy dose of Michael Bush especially last week lose in the Miami when they went to Miami -- game that they need to win because they looked at -- schedule they're like Santa I'm make it a listen I'm checking it twice on the potential who's not. It's they knew that the Green Bay Packers was next week. They failed to capitalize on that opportunity to beat the Miami Dolphins so now Raiders guess what. You've got to put your big boy pads on -- coach hue Jackson you did have the best game plan together because commentary right now Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers they don't wanna go anywhere but I tell you what I think hue Jackson you're the man in your team is the man for that job the coach for that job so we'll see what happens I think this is a must win for the Raiders because -- Timbers plan they have to keep they have to keep pace -- -- So look for the Raiders are going to Lambeau Field the place that Lombardi deal goes through the playoffs go so that -- It should be a great game at Lambeau let's see if they can knock off the undefeated Packers.
Lorenzo gives his take on why Hue Jackson deserves Coach of the Year consideration.
