Oh No, Not Again!

From the O.co Coliseum, Oakland, California

What used to be one of the most forgettable moments of any NFL game has suddenly become a can’t miss moment – the post-game handshake between coaches.

Another “incident” happened on Sunday as Todd Haley and Raiders head coach Hue Jackson met at mid-field following the Chiefs 28-0 drubbing of Oakland.

As Jackson approached Haley, he was waging his index finger at the Chiefs head coach. The pair shook hands, but it was Jackson who was doing all the talking.

Haley never stopped after retrieving his hand from the shake and turned his back to Jackson, who was still chattering. The Chiefs head coach was 10 yards away and Jackson was still talking in Haley’s direction.

“I didn’t hear what he said,” Haley said after the game.

Jackson didn’t reveal the nature of his comments, but did say when asked what happened on the field:

“That’s between me and him. We get to play’em again.”

Apparently what got Jackson mad was a late pass by QB Matt Cassel after the two-minute warning to WR Dwayne Bowe from the Oakland 24-yard line. Cassel took a shot deep and the ball fell incomplete. Before that, the Chiefs had run the six consecutive times.

What might have had Haley calling for a pass on that play was the fact the Raiders were in late, cheap shot mode, as they picked up a pair of 15-yard personal foul calls during those six running plays.

Jackson was right: his team does see the Chiefs again. It will happen on Christmas Eve at Arrowhead Stadium.

    Got to love rivalries. Nothing like to rival head coaches who hate each other. Haley bringing Raiders hate back to KC.

    I guess even with that putrid old bastard Al dead and rotting, the legacy lives on.

    Imagine Jackson having the nerve to complain about a pass into the endzone when his team was taking one cheap shot after another in the fourth quarter.

    It was getting bad there in the last drive. I think it was the best option to throw and put them on their heels a bit. Things very much calmed down after that with the exception of the coach for some reason.

    I hope yesterday is just the start of things to come for the Raiders. One thing everyone seems to forget is while they are trying to become the bully’s of the NFL like the Raiders of the 70′s, the other teams of today are just as big and just as athletic as they are. And although the Chiefs had more penalties in yesterdays game than they had all year, it was apparent from the start that this officiating crew was not going to let this game get out of control. I still think the Raiders organization has given a first year head coach way too much influence in how the team is molded. A few more undisciplined performances like yesterday may have them re-thinking their choice.

    Don’t think for a second that pass wasn’t a direct result of Breaston getting into it with someone right before the 2 minute warning. They had to drag him off the field. I would imagine that what Haley did with the pass will go a long way in the locker room.

    Hope the Chiefs send them home with a big turd in their stocking…

    Those people that make a ‘big deal’ about Haley’s post game handshakes, etc. need to just get over it. Haley seems like the kind of guy that either likes you or doesn’t (not much grey area) and there’s nothing in the rules that says he has to be chatty, nice or give well wishes to the opposing HC’s after the game is over.
