    we will see some analyst said cable reminds them of john madden an OL guy

    The only things Cable has in common with Madden:

    1. Girth
    2. Male
    3. Caucasian
    4. Homosapien


    Both west coast natives. And not playcallers.

    Funny fact. You know the Raiders ran a Hyrbid 3-4 defense in the 80’s?

    Who doesn’t believe me?

    Yea,right,an OC is telling the owner what to do.Cable didn’t have Davis’s ear last year.It looks like he does this year.It is humorous that everyone wanted the Raiders to ‘act’ like other teams by having a GM,HC,coordinators,etc.,then when they do just that (minus the GM) you say the HC has no say or responsibilities.

    You have less proof of Cable influencing anything than I do of Hue Jackson influencing Al Davis. What, Cable’s stellar coaching record get Al’s ear? lmao.

    I do know Cable was here last season and we had a poor draft and poor offseason, and then Cable coached us to 5-11, and then Cable was not backed by the Raiders (as they did with Rob Ryan) when there were reports of the Raiders looking for a new HC this offseason…and then you want to believe Al is listening to this guy? hahahahahahaaaa

  • lefty12

    actually they started running it in the 70s after they acquired Ted Hendricks.

  • Cable is a better fit for this team than any coach since Gruden.

    A business man got on an elevator.

    When he entered, there was a blonde already inside who greeted him with a bright,

    He smiled at her and replied,

    She looked puzzled and repeated,
    “T-G-I-F,” more slowly.

    He again answered,

    The blonde was trying to keep it friendly, so she smiled her biggest smile, and said as sweetly as possibly,

    The man smiled back to her and once again,

    The exasperated blonde finally decided to explain.

    ‘T-G-I-F’ means ‘Thank God, It’s Friday.’ Get it, duuhhh?”

    The man answered,
    “‘S-H-I-T’ means ‘Sorry, Honey, It’s Thursday’– duuhhh.

  • RaiderResurrection

    AHA! Lefty is a smart man and knows his facts.

    Anybody disagrees?

  • RaiderRockstar

    new post!!!

  • It is no coincidence that Al hired Hue, a coach that comes from a well run professional organization and suddenly we have a draft that looks like it was done by a well run professional organization.

    There is a reason Hue Jackson turned down the Bears OC position for the Raiders…he has been given some enticement to get him to come to Oakland…Al knew he could get Hue on as OC on the cheap and then not have to fire Cable and pay two HCs this season. Hue knows Cable is on thin ice and that in all likelihood Cable will be out after 2010 and Hue will be in the catbird’s seat to take over.

    Coaching a team to 5 wins with Russell as your starting QB is quite an accomplishment.He also convinced Davis to get rid of him after he convinced Davis to bench him.To anybody except someone who hates Cable,it is apparent Cable is in Davis’s ear.

    Amen Lefty! I doubt that George Halas, Bill Parcells or John Madden could’ve played the crappy hand dealt to them with any more success.

    Cable has made more progress in bringing sanity back to the Raiders decision making process than anyone since Gruden. It’s not going to be quick fix, immediate gratification, so be happy with incremental progress. There’s a lot of damage to be undone! This offseason gives me hope that the ship is turning in the right direction.

    i love this game

    As to the discussion of adding a veteran WR: Is T.O. really the only option out there? Mind you, I don’t want him.

    Totally unrelated: Is Plexico Burress still in jail? Really just asking, I haven’t followed the news on him at all, apart from reading the headlines.

    And Dakota, you can put me on the pro-McFadden list for this season. I think he deserves another chance. I hope he stays healthy and will play a good season for us.

  • AbusedByAl

    OK, I cleared up the Plexico question:


    It says he may come out in early 2011. Just to say it: I don’t want him on the Raiders either. 😀
