Highly upset at the Oakland Raiders' failure to make the playoffs, coach Hue Jackson sounded off after the game. It was a fairly explosive post-game press conference from Jackson where he blamed the defense and defensive coordinator Chuck Bresnehan for the loss.

“I’m pissed at my team,” Jackson said. “At some point in time, as a group of men, you go in the game, and you can say whatever you want about coaches, you win the game. Here’s your time. Here’s your time to make plays.

“We didn’t get ‘em stopped. And we didn’t make enough plays. So, yeah, I’m pissed at the team. I’m also, like I tell them, I’ll always put it on me, but I am pissed at my team. Because when you have those kinds of opportunities, you’ve got to do it, and we didn’t do it.”

With how Jackson talked about Bresnehan, it doesn't seem like he'll be back next season.

“Chuck knows how I feel,” Jackson said. “I’m disappointed over there. I have been. It’s not like we haven’t had conversations. Chuck knows what I feel, and it’s not good enough. . . . When you play defense in the NFL, man, you got to hunt. You can’t give up 28, 29 points and expect to win.”

Jackson said he'll take on a bigger role in the organization going forward. The Raiders are also expected to hire a personnel man this offseason.

“I’m going take a stronger hand in this whole team, this whole organization,” Jackson said. “There ain’t no way that I’m going to feel like I feel today a year from now, I promise you that.

"There’s no question. Defensively, offensively and special teams. I aint feeling like this no more. This is a joke. Yeah, I’m going to take a hand in everything that goes on here.”
