The new head coach of the Raiders has made a bold statement that might make Rex Ryan blush.
There’s no doubt that the Raiders were much improved this season, but Jackson comes across as a little overconfident considering the team hasn’t had a winning record since 2002 and has been the AFC West’s doormat for most of the decade.
Jackson is no doubt following Ryan’s model of trying to make his players extremely confident that they are among the league’s best teams. The only difference is that Ryan’s proclamations were based on fact, while Jackson’s seem over the top.
