Jackson Thinks Branch is Having a Pro Bowl Season

While the defensive line and (Sunday) the linebackers get most of the attention for the Raiders, strong safety Tyvon Branch is having a Pro Bowl season, coach Hue Jackson said. Branch leads the team with 57 tackles and has a interception and a sack. “I think he is a big-time football player,” Jackson said.

“I think he is tenacious, relentless, he tackles and he tackles with his face, he finishes everything he does, he loves football, he studies the game. You don’t see a lot of guys like him that are full-speed football players all the time. I don’t think he gets enough credit. I keep saying it. I think this guy is one of the best players at his position in the league. I just think people don’t know it, because we don’t highlight that position here. But he has had a tremendous season, and if you really had a chance to watch the tape and study the tape, I think No. 33 would jump off the film. He is having a heck of a season.”
