According to 95.7 The Game’s Chris Townsend (in a report that’s disputed by Raiders Senior Executive John “THAT’S NOT TRUE, KAWAKAMI” Herrera) … the great Raiders defensive housecleaning has begun.
I don’t disagree with firing Chuck Bresnahan, Greg Biekert, Rod Woodson or Kevin Ross. There’s no defending the jobs done by any of them.
What remains to be seen is how Kim Jong-Mark runs the mysterious empire in the wake of his father’s passing.
Hue Jackson kind of clarified his position on front office hirings in an interview with Grant Napear that aired earlier today. Jackson basically said he’d “like to be involved” in any decisions involving the team’s immediate future going forward.
Sounds like a bit of a backtrack to me.
The rest of the week should be interesting.
The Raiders Sports Guy, Francis Mayer, has extensive experience in radio as a producer in Bakersfield, as a former morning show host at 106.1 KRAB and now producing a local morning news show. He and BASG played on the same Babe Ruth baseball team as 13-year-olds, and Francis still talks about that time he struck out the side in his only pitching appearance of the season. He’s also a fan of the Oakland Raiders and Minnesota Twins, a strange pairing of teams that’s never been fully explained.
