Hire Hue Jackson in 2015

We, diehard fans of the Oakland Raiders, encourage the current ownership and management to Hire Coach Hue Jackson in 2015. We want to publish an open letter in this newspaper and make our voices heard. Please visit and visit our webpage at and go to Facebook to like Hire Hue Jackson.

Ever since our Super Bowl loss in 2002, our beloved Raiders organization has been having unsuccessful, losing seasons. In 2010, we hired Coach Hue Jackson as defensive coordinator, who came in to work alongside then Head Coach Tom Cable. He aided the franchise to bounce back from a 4-12 record to an 8-8 record. Hue Jackson was promoted to Head Coach. Our players were motivated and wanted to play for Coach Jackson, and there was a huge shift in culture within the Raiders locker room.

That season, our team went 8-8, just missing the playoffs. This success was in spite of the 132-day NFL lockout, losing our starting quarterback Jason Campbell to injury, and then losing our running back Darren McFadden. In addtion, our legendary, trendsetting, trailblazing owner, Al Davis passed away. Mark Davis assumed ownership while grieving his loss and it was Hue Jackson's loyalty to the franchise that saw him take on more responsibilities.

Despite the firing of Coach Allen, our record as of print is 0-10 and 0-16 over two seasons! Our team was in a better position with Coach Hue Jackson. Raiders Nation let your voice be heard; hire Hue Jackson in 2015!
