As the Raiders prepare for the debut of this year’s

The two coaches who feuded during the first episode of last year’s are still feuding Jawaan Taylor Jersey , over . of the NFL’s annual training-camp reality show, former Browns coach Hue Jackson and former Browns offensive coordinator Todd Haley have provided quotes to Don Banks of the that demonstrate how sharply they disagreed about the team’s involvement in the program.“When [G.M.] John [Dorsey] told me they were doing [the show], I was like, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me,'” Haley told Banks. “We’re trying to make a drastic change here and turn things around, and this is the wrong thing to happen. I told the Browns owner, ‘Jimmy, this is a mistake. Don’t do it.’ The No. 1 thing in camp is getting the team ready to be able to compete.”But Jimmy Haslam didn’t pull the plug; indeed, by the time Haley had a chance to chime in, it likely was too late. Especially since Jackson seemed to be all in with the idea of seizing the platform that provides.“He’d come up to me at practice and say, ‘Wait ’til you see ‘ Josh Oliver Jersey ,'” Haley said regarding Jackson. “He was like, ‘Wait ’til you see what’s on this week.’ I was like, ‘What are you talking about? You’re spending time watching that instead of figuring out how to get the team to win?’ He reveled in it.”Haley reveled in pushing back against Jackson, and that should have surprised no one from the moment Haley was hired. Haley had taken a team to the playoffs. Jackson during two years with the Browns had won one of 32 games.Their differences played out in dramatic fashion during a debut-episode back-and-forth in a coaches’ meeting regarding whether to give veteran players rest during training camp. Haley pushed Jackson to not fear veterans getting injured. Jackson eventually played the Al Haig card, reminding Haley that Jackson is driving the bus, not Haley.Jackson actually thought that authorizing the inclusion of the scene would make him look good and Haley look bad.“I had no idea why that scene with me and Todd would hurt,” Jackson said. “I mean, other than he wanted to push his thought process on the head coach. I would think people would have thought, ‘Wait a minute, this dude needs to shut up.’ You would think it was like insubordination.”Jackson blames the perception on the fact that people viewed him not as a head coach, but as a head coach with a 1-31 record in Cleveland.“You’re talking about a coach who had lost Deandre Baker Jersey , but at the end of the day I was still head coach of the football team, and nobody wanted me to act like the head coach of the football team,” Jackson told Banks. “Because maybe he shouldn’t be because he lost so many games. Had the record been different, people would have felt different about what I felt at the time. But what everyone saw was a 1-31 coach. So the head coach was supposed to let the assistant do whatever he wants to do? Then why is he the head coach?”Frankly, plenty of people were wondering why Jackson was still the head coach after chasing a 1-15 record with 0-16. But Jackson, with all the self-awareness of Michael Scott, failed to realize how his abysmal record was received externally, and assumed that the title meant the same as applied to him in 2018 as it would have meant to any other head coach. He found out the hard way, via, that this simply isn’t the case.Jackson’s current successor, Freddie Kitchens , was in the room for the exchange. Indeed, Kitchens (then the running backs coach) lit the fuse in that fateful meeting. But Kitchens told Banks that the new Browns coach would do the show again, with one significant caveat.“If I was the head coach, the cameras wouldn’t be in the staff meeting,” Kitchens said. “The media took that interaction and turned that into a problem. They’re looking for anything. And let me tell you something, they’re going to look for anything with Oakland.”Kitchens is both right and wrong. The media is always looking for something. In the case of Jackson vs. Haley, the media found something. And that something was handed to them by Jackson, who foolishly thought that the inclusion of the exchange would help him. Instead, it became the first public domino in a chain that got both Jackson and Haley fired before Halloween. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A picture on a wall inside the Philadelphia Eagles‘ practice facility shows players holding the Vince Lombardi Trophy with the words “The New Norm” written across the middle.Coach Doug Pederson coined the phrase after the team beat the New England Patriots to win its first Super Bowl.The Eagles finally got a taste of championship success and they want more. Only eight teams in NFL history have repeated as Super Bowl champs, none since the Patriots did it after the 2004 season.It’s a tough task, but the Eagles are determined to build a dynasty. They won’t be underdogs anymore as they were throughout last year’s playoffs. Teams are coming for them and they believe they’ll be ready for the challenge.“It’s a great opportunity for us this season Julian Love Jersey ,” Pederson said. “Great motivating factor for us to sort of rip off the dog masks and no longer be the underdog, but now be the hunted. Have the target on our back.”Several key players who missed Philadelphia’s playoff run are returning from injuries, including quarterback Carson Wentz, nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters and playmaking linebacker Jordan Hicks. They’ll make sure their teammates stay hungry.“The biggest thing is the culture we’ve created, the team-first mentality, a bunch of unselfish players and the camaraderie we’ve built,” Wentz said. “I don’t see why the sky can’t be the limit for us going forward again. We have high expectations, the city has high expectations and we love that.”Some things to know about the Eagles, who open the season Sept. 6 against Atlanta:INSURANCE POLICY: The Eagles are in a unique position with a backup quarterback who was the Super Bowl MVP. Nick Foles will be under center until doctors clear Wentz to return following surgery to repair a torn ACL and LCL last December. Foles will then return to the sideline without complaining. Foles has no ego, understands his role and is close with Wentz. He didn’t demand a trade to go start somewhere else, loves playing for the Eagles and enjoys the city. It’s an ideal scenario. Foles played poorly in the preseason — minus several starters around him — but he gets a pass after sensational playoff performances.MORE WEAPONS: Rookie tight end Dallas Goedert , a second-round pick, was impressive in the preseason and joins Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz to form matchup nightmares for opposing defenses, especially inside the red zone. Versatile running back Darren Sproles returns after missing most of last season, giving the offense another threat coming out of the backfield.THE UNDERDOGS: An offensive line that features two All-Pros — right tackle Lane Johnson and center Jason Kelce — and Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Brooks along with left guard Stefen Wisniewski may have been the best in the league last season and now gets Peters back to protect the quarterback’s blind side. Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who was shaky in the preseason, has plenty of experience after filling in for Johnson in 2016 and Peters in 2017.FRONT FOUR: The addition of three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett and five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata strengthens a deep line that was No. 1 against the run last year.Starting defensive tackle Tim Jernigan is coming off back surgery and it’s uncertain when he’ll return plus Vinny Curry and Beau Allen moved on.But Bennett, Ngata and the emergence of second-year pro Derek Barnett should help this unit stay dominant. Fletcher Cox is one of the best interior linemen in the NFL. End Brandon Graham played at a high level and veteran Chris Long showed he had plenty left in the tank.COVER GUYS: Cornerback is another strength for the defense led by starters Ronald Darby and Jalen Mills. Sidney Jones, a 2017 second-round pick who missed nearly the entire season following surgery on his Achilles before the draft, and rookie Avonte Maddox had a strong battle for the nickel spot and provide plenty of depth.COACHING CHANGES: Offensive coordinator Frank Reich left to become the head coach in Indianapolis and quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo became the offensive coordinator in Minnesota. Mike Groh replaced Reich and Press Taylor took DeFilippo’s spot. Both coaches already were part of the team’s staff and have familiarity with the system and the players.
