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.”

    Stephan Curry is going to be a very very good pro player. He is a smaller Jason Kidd. Not as good defensively and rebounding but with a MUCH better outside shot.

    I also like the idea of adding Troy Smith. The only knock on him is his height, but Drew Brees, Michael Vick and others have done OK at that same size.

    It’s now obvious we’re stuck with JaSkittle for another season unless he retires or comes into camp at 450 lbs. But Gradkowski and Smith would give us some real options at QB to go with JaSkittle’s potential, in case he unexpectedly fulfills it.

    DMac is fine. He’s just being misused. One of the main reasons there’s a legitimate case to be made for firing Cable.

    It turns out that the average NFL game only has 11 minutes of ball-in-play action. LOL.

    Missouri LB Sean Weatherspoon is someone the Raiders are reportedly interested in at the Senior Bowl. I wouldn’t be shocked at this pick in Round 2. He’s a fast, explosive and productive LB. Could play outside or inside. The one knock that scares me though is that he has trouble shedding blocks — which all sounds alot like the two guys we have in there now. Still, there have been comparrisons to former Buc Derrick Brooks and if he plays to that level you really can’t argue with the pick.

    ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    WHAT?!?! Perhaps we could use him differently, but his fumbles, slips and inability to break tackles are a completely separate issue. The kid is thoroughly flawed as a RB.

    We are misusing him by not trading him.

    11 minutes = 660 seconds / 5 seconds per play = 132 plays.

    Interesting

    =========================================

    I have to agree with BSJ on this one. How are we misusing him? He is a 6’1″ 215 lb back. 6’1″ 215 lb backs should be able to run between the tackles. Darren Sproales runs between the tackles. McFadden does not make anyone miss, goes down on lst contact, does not run thru anyone, has been questionable receiving out of the backfield, and coughs it up every fourth or fifth touch. He’s being misused by being in the game. He should be in the stands.

    Davis said he was conned by Kiffin. Enter JaMarcus Russell. Got news for you sir. You’ve been conned again.

  • VanHeathen

    It’s OK Al,
    we ALL got Duped by Jacarcass…
    The next step is admitting your mistake and moving on…

  • mack-madden

    Dmac = skinny legged runner who CANT break tackles.

    Very poor vision in backfield and in open field.

    On breakaway runs he gets caught from behind way too often

    I agree we are misusing him.
    More touches = more prone to fumbles.

    Health Care IS the issue. Health care is BANKRUPTING this country. If you don’t believe me, let’s walk down, RIGHT NOW, to the Alameda County Hospital and you will see hundreds of uninsured people waiting to get treated at an ENORMOUS cost to all of us. And this happens every day in every county in America. But why believe me? The Republicans and insurance companies say the exact opposite And they have done nothing but lead us all to peace and prosperity. BTW, what did we get for the TRILLION dollars the Iraq and Afghan wars have cost us?

    Keep balance as u approach the line of scrimmage first.

    Then keep possesion of the ball as u run for 2yds then fall down without anyone touching u while trying to perform a juke move.

    I have a Montreal Expos cap right here (Montreal, best city in North America even if Vancouver is more scenic).
    If I send you the cap then you can trade it to the Raiders for McF to adopt him as your very own.

    =======================
    Davis is an idiot.

    Kiffin interviewed for the offensive coordinator position, NOT AS HEAD COACH.

    The interview Al had had nothing to do with him being HC.

    Was only AFTER Sark turned Al down, did Al send his flunky to offer Kiffin the job as head coach.

    Soooooo…keeping that in mind..Al? Are you saying he conned you for the offensive coor. position? And you ended up offering him the job as head coach?

    In other words, you just copped to the fact you’re an easy mark?

    OH..WAIT…JAVON WALKER, KWAME, KELLY, HALL, JR, MCFUMBLE, BEY….Never mind. You scream “I’m easy”

    Fair enough. So then, name one Republican who can beat him. So far you’ve only named Dakota. As far as I know, he’s just a commenter on a Raider blog. Have to say no.

    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.
