Earlier today the Oakland Raiders held their introductory press conference for new head coach Hue Jackson. Al Davis introduced the former offensive coordinator as the new head coach of the Raiduhs. While Al Davis might resemble the crypt keeper, there’s no doubt he still wields considerable power and respect in the Raiders organization.

We’ll keep an equal eye on the Raiders and new head coach Hue Jackson to see the kind of staff he puts together.
