  • The question you have to ask yourselves is this; would it be better for Al to fire Cable at the end of this season or at 8 games or so into the 2010 season?

    Either way Cable ain’t making it another full season in Oakland, so why not fire him when we might be able to hire a decent replacement instead of in the middle of next season when we might end up with Sanjay lal is interim HC?

  • Tom Cable is going to win COY in 2010.

    Jerry is just doing his job, earning a check, supporting his family and he doesnt slap women around when he isnt twittering.

    Why are you venting your unbridled hate on poor Jerry?

  • Senior Beeecham

    KrappyKell, you senile old goat, do you have nothing better to do than hassle a beat writer with the same old question over and over?

    Yeah, we all know you want Jerry to ask Al about his performance as the general manager. We know it keeps you awake at night and causes you to soil every pair of underwear in your drawer.

    But why do you think hounding the poor guy is going to accomplish anything? You’ve gotta have something better to do, like update your real estate web site or make another payment on your Swiss chalet.

  • Plunketthead

    I will answer my own question.
    Its because you are f%#king nuts.
    You cant get at Al so you take it out on Jerry in hopes that he takes it out on Al.

    Mr. JP Losman better get some reps, he is going to need them. Mr. Russell will get sacked and knocked out as he is outta shape, crazy this late in the season, I know. He gets sacked and gets the ball knocked outta his hands so easily. Are his hands any bigger (or smaller) than Dave Kreigs? Mr. Frye is still seeing twinkle, twinkle little stars.

    Mr. Satele needs to stop bopping his head up and down (like John Elway always got away with) giving away our plays, he doesn’t do it every time, so I wonder if it is a tell that other teams gauge upon?! (Professor Eyepatch do you have any free time to follow up on this)?

    Mr. Gradkowski should only play if completely healthy as he is clearly at minimum our solid 2nd string/backup for years to come, he has definately earned a legitimate shot at the starting qb position.

    Pete’s Draft – 1st Edition

    1st Round – Center
    Stefen Wisniewski*, Penn State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 298.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.13.
    We should trade down to pick up an extra pick in the 2nd or 3rd and then take this kid. A real live, smart center with a little bit of a pedigree…

    2nd Round – Defensive Tackle
    Dan Williams, Tennessee
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 327.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.25.
    2nd Team All SEC – I like big, mean, heavy loads in the middle…

    3rd Round (1st pick) – Middle Linebacker
    Micah Johnson, Kentucky
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 254.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.71.
    2nd Team All SEC – I like big mean heavy loads in the middle…

    3rd Round (2nd Pick) – Right Tackle
    Anthony Davis*, Rutgers
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 330.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.24.
    Big, strong guy… may not be there when we pick…

    4th Round – Right Tackle
    Chris Scott, Tennessee
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 341.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.43.
    Big, strong guy… should be there when we pick…

    7th Round – Defensive Tackle
    DeMarcus Granger, Oklahoma
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 330.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.40.
    He’s a medical basket case… but if he’s there… and he might be… we should take him…


    Three 1st round prospects in the first three rounds? Well, that about sums it up.

    After reading the concern about Micheal Bush’s conditioning, it reminds of Earl Campbell. I’m sure some of you old dogs would remember the way he ran.
    He would get tackled, then he would get up very slowly, as if he just ran a marathon. He would look exhausted. Then he would go back to the huddle, get the ball and smash through tacklers like they were butter.
    Bush reminds me of that. Hey, I’m not saying he’s Earl Campbell. But he just reminds me of that style, where he gives the impression of being tired, but can still run over defenders.
    Campbell kept getting the ball all game, and come the fourth quarter, he would win the game.


    The difference is that Bush actually is tired. Otherwise, he wouldn’t pull himself out of the game for a breather. He’s got large potential, and is definitely the team’s best HB…but his conditioning is just not good. He’s got JaMarcus gut, too.

    Someone asked what the heck Samson Satele was doing bobbing his head before passing plays right as he snaps the ball. He was turning his head making the correct line calls. Remember Barret Robbins used to do that. He plays because he’s better as a power blocker. And as you guys have noticed we had only half of the line zone blocking. Even then we ran power most of the time. That’s why we caught the Donkeys out of position. They expected us to zone, instead we ran a Power scheme. Injuries caused it, but Cable looks like genius because of it. and Don’t worry KoolKell, I 100% understand what you’re saying. You are a representative of our frustrated fans. Keep getting your voice heard.

    Pete, I like the list, but the kid Davis from Rutgers is a BEAST and definitely will not make it to rd. 3. One can always dream, though. I’d love to see them trade down and get him and Williams early!!!
