Sapp not a Cable guy


Warren Sapp held an chat on NFL.com Thursday and while he paid a glowing tribute to Al Davis, he apparently doesn’t think much of the ability of his former boss to select a coach.

Q: Do you think Cable is good enough to lead the Raiders?

Sapp: Tom Cable couldn’t lead the Raiders to a picnic in his own back yard.

When asked about how he really felt about Davis, Sapp said, “One of the true legends of the game. It was an absolute pleasure to play for the man. The only thing is, I wish I could have won more for him. He embodies everything that the NFL is. He’s unmistakable. Recognize greatness when you see it, because it won’t be around too much longer. I love Al.”

Al may beg to differ on how much longer the greatness will be around.

Asked about the Raiders draft, Sapp said, “My people in Oakland are talking about picking something crazy like a safety. So don’t be surprised if they do something you don’t like in Oakland.”

Not sure at this point who Sapp`s “people” are. It’s not like any of his former defensive teammates are privy to information regarding the draft. His former coaches, Rob Ryan and Keith Millard, are gone.

There really aren’t any safeties worthy of the No. 7 overall pick, with the real outside shot being Ohio State corner Malcolm Jenkins being taken as a safety.

But that’s Warren. Never let the facts get in the way of a good quote.

Cable to talk draft Tuesday

Cable will address the media Tuesday regarding the draft and the progress of his team in the offseason.

The schedule will be announced Tuesday as well, but probably after Cable speaks.

Picnic baskets are optional.

    No your not close at all but you have a typical chistian narrow minded out look on anything other than what you were taught to believe.

    Look at the statistics 70% of people with an advanced degrees know that we evolved and do not subscribe to your teachings.

    Doctors and PHD’s are hardly little Gothic kids that dress in black and are outcasts of society. Which is exactly what your religion teaches to make all non believes outcasts.

    Wake up man its not 1950 anymore you are still subscribing to your grandmothers teachings. Computers are evil and so is dancing blah blah its 2009 dude and your stuck in 1950.

  • Broncos needs:
    1- an entire new Defense.
    2- every position on Offense but WR and LT.


  • Dude

    Ok man. Wow. You REALLY look at things through Raider colored glasses. Russell has more success than Cassell?? That must be a joke. Funny, Funny.

    The Chiefs suck, but as a Raider fan, saying that is like throwing stones from a glass house.

    Bush is a 3rd stringer, thats why I didnt add him.

  • come on jerry make with the fix….

  • Dude

    Dont know about your Bronco take. They have like 8 picks in the top 60 this year. You can fix alot of holes with that many picks.

  • Dude is right, KC and Oakland will rule the division for the next decade.

    Broncos are toast.

    Chargers are right behind them in the free fall.

  • Als saggy lower jaw

    Bush is the man dude!

  • I wish I can be stuck in the 50s. I like the culture, music, cars, and clothes. 🙂

  • Back to Football:

  • OAKlifer


    No bro I never said…”Russell has more success than Cassell?? ” I said…”Russel& Cassel toss up But i’m a way bigger fan of Russels having more success than cassel…but as far as roster goes if we lose russel GOD forbid!!! we have Garcia…”

  • 408,

    I don’t usually see you here in the mornings! Glad you are here.

  • RaiderRockstar

    and oh yeah pot is supposedly more evil than alcohol.

    Where do you people (christians) get these ideals?


    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention did that study. Where does it say anything about Christians? Your hatred for believers in Christ has consumed you. It’s always the people who claim to be Christians that are really terrible people or hypocrits that give the real ones a bad rep.

    You must have been molested by a priest or something as a child. And if you want to know why “educated people” beleive in big bang/evolution and not Christianity it’s because that’s what they learn in school. It’s taught as fact (which is a lie), rather than theory.

  • RRS,

    Aren’t you jesus freaks supposed to be kind, turn the other cheek and all that? I guess you just can’t comprehend that some normal, productive members of society somehow don’t believe in a long-dead carpenter being our personal savior. To each his own my friend, and for the record; “science hasn’t proved anything” does nothing to negate the fact that christianity hasn’t proved anything either. Now can we discuss the Raiders, or are you gonna be constantly trying to bring us into the flock.

  • thanx O…

    3 day weekend….

  • Als saggy lower jaw

    why are you people here??????


  • 4evaRaider

    What do you mean their is NO Santa Claus???

    turn the other cheek? nobody punched me. having a backbone and a reason for what you beleive is important. Jesus offended many people, especially the religious leaders who wanted him crucified. sometimes the truth offends people. they don’t like to hear it. they are comfortable living in sin and would do anything that “makes them happy”

    Why do you things drugs & alcohol and porn addictions are so common?

    people are searching for joy, peace, love, hope, satisfaction and true happiness. these these can’t be found in the world and since people reject God they resort to distructive habits that end up making them miserable in the long run.

    “jesus freak” was a term by DC Talk (a christian rock band) I don’t consider myself a freak for my personal beliefs, but if you wish to use insults go ahead. doesn’t prove a point.
