ESPN: Cable stays

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 . . .

    SATAN…….lol my god you are clueless and dont get it

  • oo00tt00oo

    finally….now that shefter went and reported cable is staying davis will fire his ass and we can move on

  • DKnight007

    The thing that gets me….is that the AFC West is their for the taking but the stupid old man is more worried about tryin to hide things from the media, lie, and fight bitter battles and have war of words with former employees or players instead of knowing what needs to be done to build a winning team to take the division.

    The Dis-Chargers window to make it to the super bowl is CLOSED IMO…..Denver has a weak defense and KC is still rebuilding.

    The old man Al should tell Juggs Russell that if he doesn’t agree to restructure his contract down, hire a personal trainer and lose 8-10 pounds in 2-2.5 months to show he is serious about competing….then he can have lots of luck finding another team that will take on his lazy azz!

    I’m really pulling for McClain in the 1st rnd. I think he’s the next one to become one of the great MLBs, which we need. Then take the best O-line in rnd 2, wether it be Tackle or Guard. Either way we’ll be addressing a desperate need and it will definitely be a huge upgrade as well. But definitely gota get McClain with that 8th pick.

    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

    ^^^^^^^^^
    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.
    ********************************

    Throughout the course of the year, how well did people fare vs Bama on the ground? Do you not agree that he was the major factor in it since they run a 3-4? What natl title game? You mean the one vs Florida?

    ^^^^^^^^^
    No….the other fake “national title game” versus Texas. LOL

    ——-

    This is what I think too. When media was putting out Cable WOULD BE fired, they put out the rumor he’s hired. Now the media reporting he WOULD remain, Davis will fire him. All about Al shaking his fist at the media.

  • SATANFEARS ALDAVIS

    that adam schefter dweeb is just tryna fukk with al davis, he tryna make the raiders make a move.

  • DKnight007

    RaiderDogg,

    So if it’s true that Cable guys stays…..then what happened to the BIG changes that you said were in store for this “organization”??

  • Raiders4eve

    Guys

    It dont matter if Cable stays or not, look at the system this team is playing. Vertical pass and man to man defense with mediocre talent. This system is made for above average players. If we gonna continue this system we need to upgrade the talent around this team period.

    Draft these guys.
    1st round McClain
    give up 2nd rounder and 3rd rounder get Cody
    3rd rounder get Michah Johnson
    4th rounder get Jay Ross DT Huge body
    5th rounder get DMAC favorite blocker Mitch Petrus OG

    Free Agency

    Sign Kampman to replace Ellis
    Sign Chris Chambers or T.O
    Sign Marcus McNeill bid high to screw SD
    Sign Richie Incognito adds some toughness in this OL
    Sign Nick Leckey AL gotta over pay him
    Sign Dunta Robinson to play along Nnamdi and put CJ in the nickle

    Get these half of these talents and we could to go with this system otherwise change to the 3-4 and play conservative offense.

  • JollyRoger

    The Return of Godliness: Gotcha! Woulda never guessed. :-)

  • Pretty Rick

    If Cable’s gonna get fired he’s just gonna have to wait until AFTER the Super Bowl. That way all eyes will be on the Raiders,,just the way Al likes it. Plus we still have to fill out the rest of the staff before making a decision about the head coach.

    Hope so….cause the I think the old man Al needs to go aggressively after Jim Harbuagh to be head coach.

    Offer him 3-3.3 million a year for 4 years with an option for a 5th….just to start. I would give him up to 4 million a year.

    Like I said before, if the old weird Al can waste more money on the likes of Juggs Russell and DHB…..then surely he can invest wisely on a coach like Harbaugh who is a WINNER and has huge upside as an NFL coach.

    However it gets done, priority number one has to be towards focusing on stopping the run.

    We must get a better MLB, at least one more DT, and anything other than the worst NFL offense would help a lot as well.

  • SATANFEARS ALDAVIS

    terrell owens wants 2 win a super bowl. h would go ape shat in oakland. can we win next season ?

  • SATANFEARS ALDAVIS

    the common thing i see over these years is we cant score! if we score 24 points in a game i cum.. the saints score 40 like its nothing! thats why i want a qb like jimmy clausen, we can plug defense in free agency with guys like kampman. draft clausen and get billy volek in free agency 2 start next season .
    must score points! offense wins reg season games! the defense is good enuff

  • Pretty Rick

    Question,,,If we were to draft McClain,,who do we keep,Morrison or Howard? Because chances are one of ‘em would get the boot.

    I agree with you.

    I think Cable has some good qualities as a character, and his relationship with Al. But that’s not what’s needed either. An actual good coach is key. An X&O disciplinarian coach. If they’re an Air Coryell power-blocking offensive HC that’s fine. As long as they know what they’re doing, actually schooled in that system, know how to utilize the players/talent we have.

    Btw….like my new profile link? Click to view.

  • mcthompso

    All of these draft wants sound great. what with the beastly LB and space eating DT. Of course last year was supposed to be Raji, and hopefully a good linebacker somewhere else in the draft. Did that happen? No. If that dream couldn’t happen, hey, there was always Alex Mack we could have gotten round 1. Did that happen? No. Well we can’t get strong anywhere on the tough part of the field, so we need a good playmaker. Crabtree, Maclin, Harvin, Britt, Hicks all available. Oh DHB (Who I do like, just not as a player)?

    We can give a wishlist all we want, but we all know something head scratching will happen.

  • Raiders4eve

    SATANFEARS ALDAVIS

    I like Clausen but 8th pick overall is too high for him and by the way the Raiders develop rookie QBs its a disaster pick, we need a veteran like Grad or maybe shoot for Mcnabb

  • DKnight007

    If Jim Harbaugh was the head coach then I would have no problem with Clausen being the pick at #8.

    Harbaugh would develop Clausen nicely.

    With Cable as head coach….picking Clausen would be a waste.

    They need to sign or trade for Vick, Tyler Thigpen or Kevin Kolb to compete with Grads and maaaaaaybe Juggs.

  • http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a136/ggakma/raidersdavis.png GG

    Like, who wouldn’t want Sean Payton as HC if we could have him?
    Would we really want Cable over Payton, Trestman, Gruden, Fassell, Harbaugh….in terms of actual coaching?
    It’s just the coaching turnstile we’re tired of, wanting some stability for the sake of it. But stability of bad coaching isn’t good either. The problem is Al has to bite the bullet and not diss coaches so much, actually invest in a good one for the long-haul and stop being so egotistical/petty about his own “image” or whatever it is.

  • DKnight007

    Cable coming back makes me want to rush out and BUY SEASON TICKETS!!

    Yeah….riiiiiiight. LOL

  • SATANFEARS ALDAVIS

    nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    fukk!! mike vick!!

    u want another dumb black blingy weed smokin lazy quarterback ?

  • http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a136/ggakma/raidersdavis.png GG

    Cable is not play-calling or HC material. I think he’s proven that.

  • SATANFEARS ALDAVIS

    eagles crazy if they let kolb go. dude was fire at houston. man i wish we would get colt brennan . and yes i wish we would keep a coach for like 15 years. the panthers , steelers and titans make me jealous. cus they get 2 grow up with coaches.

  • aig

    I’m glad we retained Cable for another season. I’ll be happier if it is confirmed that he will give up playcalling. Cable deserved another season. The only group of people that saw him in the locker room are the players. If they vouched for him, then I’m all good for that.

    Here’s to hoping for a slimmer Jawalrus and a true QB competition in camp.

  • aig

    Our starting group of Oline people are pathetic. Cable is responsible for that too. To be competitive consistently, we need to be able to have a solid Oline. I hope we do improve it this offseason as our number 1 priority.

  • buckeyeraider

    Vegas,
    Last time i went to Vegas, about 10 or 12 years ago, I got in a cab, the cabbie had a Raider hat on. I start talking to him, told him I was from Ohio, been Raider fan all my life, etc. He told me story, when the team was in LA, he said he used to make the 2 hour drive a couple of times a year to a game. Said one time there was a Bronco fan walking up and down the stairs in the endzone, wearing an Elway jersey, talking shyt to the Raider fans. The Cabbie said he thought to himself “this is not going to end well. He said sure enough, at halftime careflight landed in the parking lot. Somebody had beat his azz in the bathroom, doused him with something, and set him on fire”. I said damn, that was harsh. I don’t know if that story was true, but I do remember the footage on the news of the LAPD in full riot gear in the stands beating peoples azzes with batons after that Steeler fan got kicked in the head.

  • Norco Bob

    Well Im happy that Cable is staying, brian isnt but we dont agree on everything, (even being the same person, we can still disagree),…but Im glad hes staying, the HC doesnt really matter these days there anyway, actually never has,…I hope that pig of an ex wife of his is steamin mad today, she was hoping he would get fired,..but sorry you loser, hes staying, getting richer, while you get none of it, hope that 5K espn gave you was worth it,…Im hearing your daughter doesnt talk to you anymore…and hey, lets face it, he smacked her in the face and she deserved it,..Randy Hanson deserved it too,…so, great day for the Cable guy…Comcast sports has never looked so stupid, and they have only themselves to blame.

    Watch your mouth you ignorant moron. Ricky Williams was a known weed smoker and he clearly revived his career, I believe Vick has changed and stop being a racist calling him “Dumb black Blingy” dude is broke now chill back n relax homie

  • Norco Bob

    DKnight,…I already put a deposit on my 2010 season tickets, we all got a 100 dollar Image card for Xmas for it, back in early december,…If me and my friends are the only ones at the coliseum next season bfd, I dont care, and neither does al davis.

  • Norco Bob

    I doubt its possible that Russell gets released, but with Cable staying, its a slight possibility,..I sure hope hes gone, hopefully they run his butt ragged in Napa for a month in the heat,….then release him.

  • mack-madden

    Need confirmation from mr Davis that cable is staying before anything else.

    Don’t matter what people think we should draft/sign.

    It’s all up to mr Davis. He will select whomever he wants reguardless what anyone says.

    It’s all bout size/speed. Two essentials for mr Davis

  • Dark Forces

    The plan for Jamarcus Russell is for him to sit on the bench eating sunflower seeds in a stocking cap while making the same money as a top tier free agent.

  • dtrain

    What I love about all of this is the idiots that have been writing about all these other head coaching candidates, all the reports that Cable was definitely gone. Not once, and I repeat, not a single time did you ever hear anything coming out of the Raiders head office. The local media especially just can’t ever get it right. They offer opinion based on nothing, and rarely actually just report the news!

  • Norco Bob

    By the way, tomorrow I have the Colts by 17,..the Vikes by 4.

  • buckeyeraider

    Sorry to get off draft topic, but you Raider fans out there in Cali got a baaad reputation. I remember watching a preseason Raider-niner game on monday night football. Somebody said why aren’t there any niner fans in Oakland. Al Michaels said are you nuts? You’d be taking your own life in your hands wearing a Steve Young jersey in this place. I remember watching Mike and the Mad Dog on yes network a few years ago when the Raiders and the Jets played in the playoffs, and somebody called in and said Fireman Ed feared for his safety at the game, left and watched the rest of the game from his hotel room. Mike Francessa actually went on television and said next time the Raiders come to town, and there are the usual 20,000 Raider fans there, people do your thing.
    I’ve been to two Raider games in Cincy and one in Indy a few years ago, and never had any problems. Anybody have any expeiences?

  • Norco Bob

    I dont care how much Jamarcus makes, as long as he doesnt play.

  • SATANFEARS ALDAVIS

    thats not racist man. white people love tea.. latino guys can drink 8 beers and drive the same… canadian women are really slutty .. and black q.b.s are just horrid. FACTS

  • SATANFEARS ALDAVIS

    NOW WHAT DARK FORCES SAID WAS RACIST . hey! man.. i got on a stocking cap right now. and i got a taste 4 sunflower seeds. what u tryna say buddy ?

  • ColoradoRaiderFan

    Dtrain,

    I love it when the media has “inside” sources, or “un-named” sources inside the organization, then they end up being wrong. Once their red in the face, they always say the same thing, you never know with the Raiders.

  • SATANFEARS ALDAVIS

    oh and ricky williams really has been a pro bowl running back since he returned,, right ..

  • Culebra

    As long as JaMarcus stays in the bench or hits the road the season should be slightly less painful to watch.

  • Norco Bob

    Buckeye, dont believe everything the lyin media says,..I go to every game,..see a few fights, but thats at every stadium.

  • Stabler76

    O-line is pathetic. It was last year and especially in 2006. If the O-line had been fixed we would have never need to draft Russell. Behind a solid o-line Andrew Walter would have developed as a QB and ran the team as planned.

    When did Cable take over o-line— 2007? It seems like he did and the improvements he made there from that miserable 2006 oline in the first year, is what has vaulted him to the status of play calling head coach when Lance left. I don’t get it.

    ZBS is BS. Bush on the bench is BS. The o-line is as tough as whipped cream.

    Look at the Jets. They have a bad ass center and oline to match. They are playing tomorrow for a spot in the super bowl with a rookie QB. Creative schemes on Defense.

    Cable is so far from that. The big hope that we we supposed to hang onto this year was Shillings will be back soon or Gallery will be back soon. Meanwhile Cable calls plays where DMAC runs up the middle and Fargas goes nowhere.

    I am sick of the same BS.

  • dtrain

    buckeye,
    first of al michaels is an idiot. what he is saying is completely false. it is true that raiders and niners fans don’t get along but it’s only when a niner fan comes in and starts yelling and sh*t that we give them the same sh*t back. There are tons of families there with no problems at all! It’s highly exaggerated. we’re passionate fans!

  • ColoradoRaiderFan

    I think fans everywhere are generally the same, except philly, they booed Santa Claus. Out here I get crap from everyone. I’ve been cursed at by old men and ladies in front of my kids. Drunks on the golf course tried to pick a fight with me when the Raiders beat the Donks.

  • dtrain

    colorado,
    what cracks me up is that we don’t hear anything about the raiders and it’s reported that they do. doesn’t everyone with a job have a yearly review? we don’t go wondering if andy reid or mike tomlin were being reviewed and possibly fired. i guarantee they sat down with their bosses and had a yearly review!
