Asomugha on Cable, JaMarcus

Raiders coach Tom Cable told KHTK (1140-AM) radio he expects to be coaching the Raiders in 2010, but apparently no one has gotten word to his players.

It sounds as if ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Cable himself are the only two people who are certain the Raiders won’t be changing the head coach. The Raiders say the evaluation process regarding Cable is ongoing.

Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, in an interview at the Pro Bowl on the NFL Network with Rich Eisen, Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin, was asked if there was uncertainty about the head coach and responded, “I think he’s back, they’re probably still going over stuff, but if he is the guy, me, just like the the other players, you would like to hear that.”

Asomugha said he “absolutely” wanted Cable to return because “we can’t keep starting over. Five coaches in seven years, that’s tough.”

Asomugha received some pointed questions about JaMarcus Russell and expressed hope the quarterback would be more prepared this season, while essentially conceding Russell will remain the starter.

“I think he can be the guy. I don’t think he was ready for what we went through last year, I think he needed to be a little more prepared, going into each game, going into the season, and I think he has that opportunity this offseason.

“It’s got to be big for him. He knows that too. He has to understand that we’re going to go as far as he takes us. He’s the quarterback of the team.”

Irvin asked Asomugha if Russell’s lack of preparedness was because of Russell himself or the coaching staff.

“Look, we’ve all played the game. You can have all the intangibles, but unless you put in the work yourself . . . look, I came into the league as a safety and I had to move to man corner,” Asomugha said. “Mentally, you’ve got to do it yourself. A lot of it’s going to be on you and I think he’s getting to the level that he realizes that.

“It was tough for him last year. It wasn’t easy going into games getting booed by your own people. That’s tough.”

Sanders managed to get in a dig right early in the interview session after Eisen opened by asking Asomugha about his acting career and role in “Friday Night Lights.”

“You’ve been acting well the last several years in Oakland (like) you want to be there.”

    With a lot of teams being frugal in anticipation of what might happen with the lockout, we might be able to get a few really good free agents if Al is willing to spend some dough this offseason. With the top 8 teams out of the mix, and other teams not wanting to spend $ …. just saying!

    Imagine if Obama told all of these unemployed white people what white people have been saying throughout history to unemployed black people, to get an education and get skills, and stop whining?

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

    I wish he would say this!!!!

    I lost my job in the middle of 2009, right in the heart of it. I found a new gig, used the time off to gain another license, and even though it was a lateral at best move, I’m on the payroll.

    Reduce unemployment benefits, and put in subsidies to attend community college and increase the Pelle Grant. That’s the right thing to do longterm, but we need a stimulus because we need to get re-elected.

    The good thing about the politics of our day is that Republicans are finally accepting the fact that the job market plays a role in poverty. Of course, they don’t really believe that, they really think people in the unemployment lines are bums. They’re just doing it to spite Obama. But we’ve got them on the right page, at least. That’s change. Count it.

    Rockstar, let it go. Shell’s hiring was a joke. The whole concept was a joke. It’s proof Al’s living in another time. Al really thought Shell would motivate his black players, same retarded concept he’s using with Jackson right now.
    =================================
    WTF?
    Why keep running the race BS?
    I guess, using that analogy, he hired Kiffin to motivate the white players?
    See how lame that sounds?

    Wow. All of these news stories about the economy, and unemployment. When minorities were unemployed, we told them it was their fault for not having skills or being uneducated. Now white people are unemployed, and suddenly it’s Obama’s fault.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    Yep!

    It’s all about the Bildeberger Consipracy. The government within the government thats tries to control things in this country and around the world.

    Why don’t you take the political BS to a political board?
    NO political BS for hours..and you show up and right away and start up with it?

    Same old rehashed crap..

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Richochet, I’m basing the race assumption on the comments in here. When Kiffin was hired, nobody was suggesting that he was hired to motivate the white players. But people are in here suggesting that Davis hired Jackson because he’s black, to motivate Russell. I’m responding to them. Pay attention, moron.

    Richochet, Jerry doesn’t seem to care about football. Why should we?

    Richochet, why don’t you make me take my comments to a political board? Who in the F died and made you moderator? If you dont’ like my comments, scroll on.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    I think Richochet’s mad because I’m taking attention away from him and his fight with Oakglenn. And, my god, talking about rehashing dead arguments. He and Oakglenn have been arguing over the same topic for 3 months now. What an idiot!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Jackson will probably motivate Russell the same way that Shell motivated Porter if Jackson is a disciplinarian …

    WR Jerry Porter was been suspended by head coach Art Shell for four games for conduct detrimental to the team (reduced to 2 games by the NFLPA)

  • jhill

    So no more draft activties until the combine? Can teams have guys in for workouts now?

    Yep….poor little evil greedy Republicans and their GOP can’t make as much money as they want to.

    Poor little babies huh?

    Unreal….

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Rockstar, just get it through your head..Jackson is not going to motivate Russell, rather he’s a disciplinarian or a pacifist. Russell will laugh at him, either way. The only person who’s going to motivate Russell is Dr. Frankenstein himself, who created him.

    Obama’s shifting our government to taking a concern for unemployment, and accepting that as a pivotal reason for poverty and other ills. Of course, Republicans are only focusing on unemployment to spite Obama, but the result is that they’re concerned about it, and we now have a government more concerned with poverty than any government we’ve had probably since the New Deal. Huge. Talk about swinging things the other way from the Reagan era, where the belief was that if you’re unemployed, it’s your fault.

    Albert, I’ve gotta say that link you posted to the picture of the overweight black fella was HILARIOUS!

    I totally get it – the joke is Jamarcus would be hanging out with a goofy overweight loser, much like himself, right? Man, that’s comedy gold!

    And the fact the fat guy had his tongue sticking out was like the cherry on the sundae of hilarity. Whenever I see an overweight individual stick his tongue out I’m instantly in stitches.

    Anyway, keep up the great work and I’m looking forward to your next successful foray into the comedy field with great anticipation!

    Baja Rules!

    If Jabust and DHB start next year the attendance at the Raiders games will be worse than it was this year. I cannot believe the organization and fans think these guys can play in the NFL. THESE PLAYERS ARE BRUTAL!!! The Raiders need to address the 0-line and D-line in the draft and free agency. Knowing what Al likes, I would not be surprised to see the Raiders draft a corner in the first round and another crappy wr in the second. I just hope the front office can get it right this year. For those of you who defend DHB, the guy cannot catch. If you watch any old film on the guy he makes it look so difficult to catch a football.

    0-line and D-line are the biggest needs…

    Martz + Cutler = dysfunction

    I wish dungver would have hired Martz as OC while Cutler was there instead.

    When presidential elections are about the economy, Democrats always win. As much as Republicans try to bash Obama over the economy, as long as they’re talking about the economy, it helps Obama’s reelection.
