Cable on Jackson hire


Talking while observing practice at the Senior Bowl, Raiders coach Tom Cable gave a thumbs up to the hiring of Hue Jackson as offensive coordinator.

I think it’s a good decision by the organization,” Cable told the National Football Post. “It’s someone that I’m familiar with. It’s someone that I think can help us take the next step, so we’re all pretty excited about it.”

  • I think Al voted for Abe Lincoln.

  • DMAC

    I don’t do politics, but the man can’t turn schit around in one year. Schit was fked to begin with.

  • RaiderResurrection

    Al is old enough to vote for George Washington.

    I think Scott Brown is the only republican that stands a chance. Its funny, the media actually like the guys too.


    Trade Dmac for ABE Lincoln!

    Scott Brown from Massachusetts and I don’t care either way.


    LOL. Right. When you consider the swing states Obama won, like North Carolina, Virginia, Florida, Ohio, Indiana, Iowa, Colorado…and consider how many minorities and women he was able to bring out that trumped the number of angry rednecks McCain and Palin brought out, tell me, how does Brown take away those minorities and women, considering he’s a conservative white male? Again, MCain and Palin already got the angry rednecks. That number’s already accounted for. Brown couldn’t rely on that demographic. He will need to get Latino and female votes. How does he do it?

  • If Obama doesn’t get us to the playoffs, Al will doubtless fire him for cause.

  • RaiderResurrection

    But I don’t like Republicans or Democrats. They are both cut from the same cloth.

    This nation is too ignorant to fix its mistakes.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Obama being the in-shape sport freak he is would run the fastest 40,imo

    Obama smokes cigarettes. But, still probably the fastest President in a long time.


    William Howard Taft for the D-Line !!!

    There is no way to know right now, 1 year in, which Republican could beat Obama in 2012.


    That’s a cop out.

    Everyone knew Hillary and Obama were going to run at this point in time before the ’08 election.

    Of the Republicans that have already been rumored…Sarah Palin, Guiliani, Romney..who could beat Obama? By saying you don’t know yet, you mean that there’s a dark horse candidate we never heard of. Well, that’s always possible. But if you have a candidate in mind who you think can beat Obama that we have heard of, name them. Or admit you can’t think of one.

    his name is Hue Jackson, you racist!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Theodore Roosevelt for GM!

  • LOL. Why do the Republicans in here always run for it when I ask them to name one Republican who can beat Obama? It’s proof of how bad of shape the Republican party is in, isn’t it? They’re relying on buyer’s remorse. They have no message. See “John Kerry, 2004 election” to find out how well that plan works.

    I think the Judge makes a good point. There is no way to know what is going to happen in the next two years. Things are too precarious right now. If the economy goes further into the tank, which is a very real possiblity, then Dakota probably could beat Obama in 2012. In fact any Republican could.
    The more realistic question is given that the Republicans had unfettered control of the Presidency, the Courts, and the Congress over the last eight years and EVERY major concern in America, like Education= disaster, Health Care= disaster, Economy= disaster, World Opinion= disaster, Public confidence= disaster, Environmental Issues= disaster, why would ANYONE vote Republican unless gays are that much of a threat to our nation.

  • Chris in NY

    Giuliani is probably the only Republican I can think of who could beat Obama. Of course, the Republicans are too silly to vote him in in the primary. They’ll probably nominate Sarah Palin, AKA the female George W Bush. Then again, she’ll probably win knowing this country and it’ll be the final nail in the coffin for America.

    Obama has had only 1 year to undo an enormous mess. Factor in that the Republicans are only interested in dragging any progress down to a grinding halt and it’s a steep climb.

    Then again, Obama needs to get tougher. The Republicans have shown their hand. One thing about Bush is he got what he wanted. He didn’t sit around catering to the opposition. He rammed his agenda through. Obama needs to do the same if we’re going to get anywhere. If that starts with forcing the Republicans to carry on a months long filibuster to block a health care bill then so be it. The mood of voters will change once they’re up there reading the phone book and other silly things while our health care system rots. If all that was needed was 51 votes for reform this would’ve been over long ago.

    Dude, can you read?

    I stated, ANY republican WILL beat Obama if he can’t get us out of this mess. What Republican CAN beat him? Romney CAN beat him. Will he? Only time will tell.

    Run??? Hey, you asked a question and if you read my entire statement you would see I answered your question. I don’t run, I am right here

    the President isn’t advised to make anymore speeches in Missouri because every time he steps on the platform the old farmers start bidding on him!

    Jerry McDonald is doing a great job. OC Hue Jackson is a great pick up. Hopefully, Troy Smith will be part of the package from Bmore. Draft OL…or MLB McClain.
