Raiders coach Tom Cable said at his season-ending press briefing he has spoken to owner Al Davis and will be talking with him again next week.
He said the subject of his job secruity was not addressed and would simply fulfull his duties while under contract until told differently.
Cable, as well as a few players in the locker room that included Bruce Gradkowski, Zach Miller and Robert Gallery,, expessed optimism regarding the direction of the team. Players available supported his return.
A few other quick hits, with more details to come later:
– JaMarcus Russell and Richard Seymour were not at the final team meeting. Cable said both were excused absences for personal reasons.
– Cable conceded he may have spread himself too thin and sounded open to delegating some duties _ including play-calling _ if postseason analysis proves that would be the right path.
– Gallery’s surgery fused vertebra, widened the spinal canal, cleaned out calcium desposits and he expects to be fine by training camp.
Much more to come later. . .
