ESPN: Cable stays

Share

Haven’t seen an actual story as yet, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter posted on his Twitter account that the Tom Cable will remain the Raiders coach in 2010.

(UPDATE: A link to the ESPN story is here.)

It also said the Raiders said no decision is final.

Nothing yet from the Raiders . . .

    Haha so now we gotta go through the ZBS crap again lol

    After weeks of speculation and deliberation, Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis has decided to retain Tom Cable as head coach for the 2010 season, a source close to the situation told ESPN on Saturday.

  • The Return of Godliness

    The press conferences should be awesome this year.

    “We are getting close”

    “You guys dont see it but I do”

  • The Return of Godliness

    Cable their to do the puppeteer’s bidding lol.

  • RaiderYYZ

    good news. I’m glad to see the cable guy back (most-likely) without having to worry about play-calling. If the O-line doesn’t improve in terms of personnel, at least he will have more time with the unit now.

    Brian, i know its “awful” that you won’t be able to snort marching powder the whole trip, but you do owe it to your family to help out your grandfather with his special performance.

    You know his arthritis prohibits him from being able to get lotion into many of his body’s skin folds.

    Granted, its not the most glamorous of jobs, Brian, but think of the alternative – if his skin chaffs from the salt water, you’ll have to moisturize him 3 times a day for a week with extra virgin olive oil.

    So get ready for the Baja madness, Brian – and doing your part for your wacky old family!

    The first Raider head coach to be involved 3 seasons in a row!

    Celebrate it Tom, punch out whoever you want.

    Oh well, Bob must’ve really boogied. Back to football. Put me in the draft Mclain in the first round camp. I like Capt. Kirk, just not in the middle. We need a thumper in there. Wanted Rey M. last year. Was impressed with what I sawe from Rolando Mclain. He looked instinctive in nat’l champ. game. Sniffed out a screen, and seemed to tackle with some pop. I don’t know what he’s listed at, but he looked big; thick in the lower body like he could take on some blocks, and clog some running lanes.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    McClain is a athletic beast of a MIKE.

    He is around 6’4, 252-255. His lower body and legs are big and powerful and the guy is fast and can move. He is also a tackling machine.

    Since it seems Cable is staying……they better upgrade the 0-Line, D-Line and LB Corp.

    Lets hope that they hire an OC like Jackson also to be Cables play caller.

  • DKnight007

    Don’t worry Cable haters…..after he wins 6 games next year…..Hue Jackson will take over as head coach or Harbaugh will most likely come onboard then. LOL

  • gilbert

    ok,now a GM and of course An OC,guess that 2011 may have played into the decision.

    Brian the Genital, this year’s blog road adventure is going to Baja, so you’re going to have to settle for low grade grass and snorty snort from the Sinaloa cartel.

    I know its not as highbrow as the nose candy you must score at the Luxor, but in the spirit of blog bro ship, you’re going to have to make do.

    So I’m putting you in charge of driving the party bus to Baja, since I’m sure you’re one of the only dudes on the blog with his learner’s permit.

    And we’ll also be counting on you to keep plenty of limes slices for our frost cold cervesas!

  • The Return of Godliness

    When will BHP come in here and tell us that this move will lead us to Dallas next February lol

    Here is my mock draft based on Davis preferences:

    1st Campbell fastest LT in this draft
    2nd Arenas Best Return Man in this draft and CB tackler
    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/300163-havy-you-seen-him-a-javier-arenas-accolade#page/3
    3a D’Anthony Smith DT running 4.9 at this round AL takes him
    3b Micah Johnson MLB yes he drops all the way cause of his injury just like M Bush.
    4th Jay Ross DT Huge body can play 4-3 n 3-4 runs 5.3 while weighting over 314 lbs and 6′3 height.
    5th Mitch Petrus OG this dude open lanes for DMAC and runs 5.09 can and help resurrect DMAC career.
    No 6th
    7th round who cares he will get cut unless we get another Schillens

  • DKnight007

    Still need to hire a REAL/Personnel Guy who will do a better job at running the draft and player acquisitions than freakin the old man Al. Ugh….

  • The Return of Godliness

    gosh Raider4eve……..that sounds awful if Al does that………prolly will happen then

    *******************************

    Yea and we need the defense to not run the Al Davis scheme

  • Raiders4eve

    My thoughts, who cares Cable goes or stays dont matter as long as we are employing a man to man defense and vertical pass offense. We need to change AL’s philosophy to compete unless we get more talented players who can fit this system. Meaning an accurate QB who can gun it in the vertical passing and solid LBs whom can tackle and shoot the gaps. Current roster is pathetic, along with the current coaches, is Sanjay Lal still coaching the wide receivers?

  • The Return of Godliness

    So Tollner and Hackett’s sorry ass are prolly gone……..can Marshall’s 49er ass be sent somewhere as well?

  • Mike Davis 36

    This is a good sign, signaling as it does that there will be a true competition for Quarterback in training camp this year, as opposed to the sham we saw last year. I also believe that DHB won’t get anything handed to him, either.

  • The Return of Godliness

    i dont have a problem with the offense i just had an issue with who calls the plays.

    i have major issue with how the defensive scheme is being implemented and Marshall is an old fuk who needs to retire for following Al’s orders

    ^^^^^^^^^
    Big, strong and stout fat guy DT’s who can move are needed…but taking a two down player like Cody who has weight issues at #8 is tough one.

    Maybe Dan Williams from Tennsee will be there in Round 2. If the old man has a hard on for Cody like he had one for DHB last year….then he better TRADE DOWN…but he won’t…cuz he is stupid. LOL

  • The Return of Godliness

    Mike Davis…………..a better sign is getting a real football guy to run the Raiders

  • The Return of Godliness

    DK……….remember last year all that 2 down shyt people on this blog were saying about Maualuga? Well Cincy D was real good this year and if dude didnt get hurt they would have been the 2 seed instead of SD. Dont let that 2 down shyt fool you.

    Also think about it………we cant stop the run at all and the FA bandaids or the late draft picks wont help. We need a real stud. Pat Williams was selected that high and is a monster in this league

  • buckeyeraider

    DKnight.
    I agree. Al doesn’t really draft Lbs in first round. Only two I believe..Nap Harris and Rob Fredrickson. Like I said I like Kirk, he seems like a great guy,wants to be a Raider, positive energy, and makes a lot of tackles, and plays in space. Just not physical enough to shed Guards and fullbacks’ blocks to clog the middle. That’s where Mclain would fit in nicely. I hope Al breaks tradition. The right side of the OL also needs an overhaul. Awhile back somebody posted a list of potential free agent lineman. One I would like the Raiders to make a run at is Marshall Yanda of the Ravens. I believe he’s a restricted free agent. He doesn’t start in Baltimore I don’t think, but he plays a lot as a swingman both RG and RT on that physical Raven line. I believe he was a year or two behind Gallery at Iowa. Maybe Robert could do some recruiting.

  • The Return of Godliness

    DK……….you realize Cody lost a bunch of weight last year right? Cody could have went into the NFL last year easily but came back to win a natl title becuz he is a real man that wants titles unlike Russell

  • The Return of Godliness

    Kirk sux people. Go look at the games again and see how out of position he is on those big runs. guy is trash and is a RFA. We need to trade him on draft day

    Please fax me a copy of your learner’s permit asap so I can pass it on to the Mexican’s dept. of transportation. We don’t need want any international incidents if we get pulled over with a bus full of drunk, stoned blog dorks and your grandfather Krappy.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    Cody weight around 365 right? He wasn’t on the field much in the 4th quarter in that national title game. McLain was in there every down practically.

    Lets see the smart and wise move would be to either trade down to say 14-16 from the #8 position and draft Cody there. Or just wait and see if he falls to round 2. The old man doesn’t like doing that….so if he has that much of a hard on for Cody…your wish might come true and he reaches for Cody at #8….when there are better overall players on the board.
