The real reason Jackson's gone
My takeaway was that Hue-bris was playing a high-stakes game of racial politics. You see, Reggie McKenzie and Hue-bris Jackson are both black. Mark Davis, Al’s son, is white. If McKenzie fired Hue-bris, it’s extremely difficult to argue that Hue-bris was a victim of some sort of racial injustice. But, if Mark Davis escorted Hue-bris out of the building after one mediocre, injury-riddled 8-8 season, then Hue-bris, in his mind, has every right to subtly fan the flames of racial injustice…
...My takeaway is that within the Raiders organization there are a lot of beaten-down, worthless Al Davis flunkies who are scared McKenzie has been given the autonomy to scrub the place clean of beaten-down, worthless Al Davis flunkies.
All Huebris Jackson and the Raiders had to do was win their last game of the season. Had they done that, Mark "Tommy Boy" Davis wouldn't have been able to do any of this, and Huebris would have had another year with his pet, Carson Palmer. Sometimes, one game does a season make.
Burn, Oakland. Burn.
