Person: Jackson, Shurmer, Shula finalists for OC job

142 posts in this topic

Can someone tell me where they are getting all of the love for Jackson? (Honestly, I want to understand what people see in him)

Based on thew wiki, the guy seems to have bounced around from job to job...not many of them particularly impressive. I'm failing to see how this resume adds up to him being a good OC (not that the pickings are plentiful, but still)

He brought the Raiders a top 10 offense in 2010 and was widely considered to be building a very good team as HC before Al Davis' last idiotic acts.

How the hell is Pat Shurmur even in the discussion?? Man i just dont understand this team sometimes.

Just a theory, but Shurmur seems like a fall back option.

Wisenhunt

How hard would you laugh if a report of Whisenhunt being asked to interview came out after it was reported that we were "down to three finalists"?

He's been good everywhere he's gone and runs a Coryell type system.

He and Rivera worked together for five years in Philadelphia.

I understand that good things have happened around him...but the fact that he hasnt been able to stay at really any position for very long concerns me. I can understand leaving a job after a year or two for an upgrade...but not all of these changes were upgrades/promotions. I mean if another team (Bengals) after all the good things that happened around him only saw value as an ASSISTANT (not a coach..just assistant) to Special Teams last year...how can we make the jump to OC.

I trust people here who digest NFL stats and news much more and are much more well informed than myself have a better take on Jackson . I guess I'm just a bit surprised.

still on the hue jackson train personally. i love that he's coached running backs, wide receivers, and quarterbacks as a position coach with an incredible level of success along with his offensive coordinating.

Not sure why they aren't making run at Whisenhunt. Denver has a hired an OC. He isn't getting a Head job now; unless he is going lovie smith route and taking his ball and going home; Gettleman should be calling him up.

Should be Jackson hands down. He has a great resume only bad year he had was at Atlanta and Petrino debacle.

I would have said "wrong system", but we interviewed Shurmur whose system is even "wronger" :unsure:
