Jackson Continues to Talk a Big Game – Can He Deliver?

He’s been saying it over and over again, but new Raiders coach Hue Jackson is still ultra-confident that the Raiders are going to have a great season in 2011.

“This is going to be exciting football season,” Jackson said. “I believe we’ll have a full football season with all regular-season games played, all preseason games played and training camp starting on time.

“Our football team is on the verge of something great. We have the talent. But talent doesn’t win. Good teams win. … This team will look totally different to you. The difference between good and great is a little extra effort. I’m not going to let this team go backwards.”

That would be a shame for a team that played some of their best football in a long time last season under Tom Cable. Considering the club hasn’t had a winning season since 2002 and have had six coaches, Raider fans have been more than patient while the team has been plodding along.
