Postgame links


Filed a column for the print edition so running a little late on the postgame blog tonight. Since the temperature had dropped into the low 50s, figured finish at home.

— Here’s a link to my column on the Raiders’ suddenly inept defense, which is bringing back memories of the last several years.

— Here’s Steve Corkran’s story about the 33-17 loss.

— In the Raiders’ notebook, cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha details how difficult it is to play with a sprained ankle.

— Here’s the Raiders’ report card against the Dolphins.

I’ll add a link to Monte Poole’s column on the Raiders quarterback situation once it posts, as well as a postgame blog later . . .

    “If only the Raiders could only get over on an opponent the way they did with the media. What an incredible waste of time for a team that claims to put all its emphasis on winning to act in such a moronic fashion.”

    Stupid is as stupid does. How can you expect a moron to trick a wizard, as most other coaches are compared to Tom Cable.

    One thing all our wins had in common was that they were primarily based on “emotion”. None came via TC outsmarting the other coach with his game planning. Richard Seymour was the cheerleader. Tom Cable was just another fan on the sideline.

    I think we should cut our losses, starting with TOM CABLE and start rebuilding for next year. Dallas cut their head coach = improved, Vikings cut their head coach = improved… Raiders cut their head coach………..?

    Cable will stick it out until the end of the season because of his 3-0 division record. That’s the big achievement of 2010. DMAC and Bush and Ford show promise for the future. We need to fix the offensive line and the horrible secondary in 2011.

    Another thing, about all you fans that did not show up to support this pile, affectionately known as the Oakland Raiders. The crowd was almost split 50/50. We could not be much assistance because there were so many Miami fans there the good plays were not cheered. You “NO-SHOWS” have to own up to this loss as well.

    Remember that is the ONLY hope this team has “emotion”. They will NOT win on COACHING that is for sure!! Review the games and you see for yourself.

    Cable is not going to get any smarter in one year. The attribute that keeps him as HC is his loyalty to Al Davis. He has definitely done his homework on the Raiders of the Glory days. He goes on and on about the history of the Raiders. Patronizing Al Davis. It makes me sick to my stomach. What a joke. As you know Al loves to give out scholarships, Tom Cable can be added to that list. If he gets cut now, the Raiders can promote HJ, in the interim. We will at least be able to find out of HJ can do better; or if we need to start searching for a Shawn Payton or a coach of that elk. Something has to be done NOW.

    Sirblitzalot, You are right. Where in the hel _ did these Miami fans come from? It’s embarrassing that people don’t go out to support a team that was in contention when the game began.

    “It was like we were just out there playing,” Raiders defensive tackle Richard Seymour said. “Not much emotion, just kind of going through the motions. And that’s kind of how the game went along.”


    And all this after Jacoby Ford had set off fireworks on that opening kick-off. Bunch of ingrates.


    Last night I heard Seymour speaking to a T.V. reporter, on one of the networks. He said, “We just have to finish on a high note”. but he was so unenthusiastic when he spoke. What? We were totally still in this when he made that statement, but it was like he has conceded that he is the only man among a bunch of boys. Since he was our emotional cheerleader, I think he was subliminally referring to himself! He was “going the motions” today. I kept commenting to my brothers, ‘where is Seymour?” He was missing in action, just as I expected! We are dead. Seymour will be gone next year and so will Asygmua

    Also, if the FANS showed up today JACOBY FORD’S opening TOUCHDOWN, would have lit that place up but there was only about 23k RAIDER FANS in the stadium. If it HAD SOLD OUT, we COULD have one another “emotional” game.
