    aig-good news. here’s another blank jersey. might as well have 4. it’s not like you can be a bigger doofus.
    good news is it’s less than 20, which is half of what you pay at 40.
    is today your lucky day, or what?

    Maybe Jerry and his ‘pot smoke buddy’ Kawakami are out having a good laugh at Cable’s expense…
    Tom is looking like quite the fool these days,
    he seems to ‘outthink’ himself on a regular basis these last 4 weeks, from the fake punt agaist KC, to the QB mystery, running wildcat against Miami, after they had run it on us successfully, all seems so DESPERATE!…

  • http://raiders.com A.B. Paine III

    That’s not a real jersey ArchiveTony! Aig only wears the bonafide game jerseys. I bet he already started putting Gradkowski’s name on one of his blank ones.

  • VanHeathen

    Grads will probably have his own jerseys up on eBay when he hits the IR…

    How in the hell was this team 2nd in the league in rushing after 10 weeks at 156 ypg? Now they can’t even open up a sliver to run through. Can’t even get back to the line of scrimmage?
    ————————–
    My guess is that, after the 3-game win streak, Al Davis tried to big-foot the credit for it. There were 2 national stories on him prior to the Pitt game. And the “Leak” he wanted Campbell to play came out.

    He became enamoured with new toy Jacoby Ford. In the Pitt game, they returned to conservative play-calling with deep-sideline passes, to no avail. (Davis style)

    The Miami game 16 rushing plays, with again, emphasis on Jacoby Ford, deep.

    Now there’s counter-productive controversy in the locker rm about the back and forth QB situation, and who’s the boss.

    ==================
    naw.
    he already made it clear he’s bandwagon. jumps on when it’s safe. grad isn’t safe anymore.

    still laughing at him proving he’s a liar with his listing 6 jerseys, after saying 5 would equal what he had.
    flustered does that to ya

    Wow…like MR said, that press conference was entertaining to say the least..

    I applaud Jerry for calling out Cable like that on the QB issue. Cable started pouting and getting sarcastic, like a mini version of a Mike Singletary press conference meltdown,lol…

    Good Work Jerry! We’re tired of Cable’s bull crap!

  • Mistabrown

    Rich is that you?

  • mistic1

    Cable is drowning and is about to be put out of his misery. davis more than likely is waiting to see if there will actually be football in 2011, but when ever footbll resumes after this off season, cable will not be a part of the show.

    From press conference melt downs to meeting room/ and bedroom beat downs, he has been a complete joke. He went all in yesterday desperate after pitt pathetic o-line performance. Starting players that werent healthy, deactivating guys that were healthy. Worst of all starting grads over campbell. Grads looked like rusty hilger out there.

    Cable has more than a few shorts in his cord, and he failed to win.

  • ArmChair GM

    Cable flat out LIED! And normally I applaud him for being a stand up guy.

    Now Cable’s saying that he said all along that Grads would start when he was HEALTHY!

    Yet, during the bye week,when asked about the QB situation, he said that Jason had EARNED the right to start and that he believed in riding the hot hand…

    Grads was healthy last week. That’s why he played in the second half. Yet after the game, Cable clearly said that Campbell would start!

    Cable is on his way out. I can feel it. Al Davis is getting his projector out of the closet as we speak,lol!

  • http://www.pro-football-reference.com/ KoolKell

    If Jerry had any ballz, he go after the real perpetrator the lying that went on last week. Al Davis.

    All that counter-productive Raider intrigue nonsense is Al Davis.

  • ArmChair GM

    Cable is pissing me off big time. Horrible o-line play, games with the QB’s, questionable coaching decisions, etc…

    He got his shot, and was doing some really good things, but if the Raiders don’t make the playoffs this season, after being in 1st place with a bye week to prepare and get healthy, his butt is toast after this season.

    A couple more blowout losses, and I doubt he makes it to the end of the season…

  • VanHeathen

    Seems like we don’t scheme well against the 3/4 defenses and that should be something that hue is accustomed too…could Cable be being set up to fail?
    Or is he just doing it all by himself?

  • Mistabrown

    KKKell you are infatuated with Al Davis like a deranged monkey humping a watermelon.

  • http://raiders.com A.B. Paine III

    Mathew, is that you?

  • http://www.pro-football-reference.com/ KoolKell

    Davis has HIS 3 SB rings and Yellow Jacket already.
    He couldn’t care less about his players getting one. Its’s a graveyard for players.

  • mistic1

    cable walks off interview? What happened to all the garbage about being accountable. Davis allowed cable to make his own bed with the qb situation, and cable pissed in it. Now he wants to dodge the issue. This is an outrage.

    A leader can be wrong, but he must be accountable. then he must learn from his mistakes and not repeat them.

    Benching campbell in pitt failed to yield any results. cable then repeated and made the error worse by benching Campbell again for this game.

    His obvious yet strange fixation on grads has cost them both a career.

    He is now being exposed as a weasel, and a sub par coach.

    You know who also deserves to get blasted after yesterdays game, the pass rush! Henne/Thigpen had all day. I’m no holding out throwing in the towel until Sunday. Chargers have no run game. San Diego is no homefield advantage for SD. Nnamdi and Huff need to earn their pay on Sunday. We win were in it

  • Mistabrown

    When H Jackson came aboard Cable said now he can focus on being the HC and helping with the O-line.

    Cable doesnt need any help failing, he has proven to be really good at it.

    Davis gave cable enough rope to hang himself, and cable couldnt resist the temptation to be a human pinata.

    Tony
    If you’re smart enough, you’d know that Jamarcus Russell is being sold for $35. You get a tool from walmart for $2 and strip his number. Then you buy a set for #9 and there you go with your new 92 jersey at $75 vs paying $200 with nfl.com. Or you can buy a Lamont Jordan 34 for an extra $20 and take his name off. Consider this a free education but I doubt you’re smart enough to decipher between a Chinese knockoff and a real jersey.

    AB,

    You said you only have 1 jersey and it’s a Ronnie Lott right? He’s not even a real Raider you dumba$$. But that pretty much says a whole lot about you though doestn it. The only jersey you choose to have is a hardcore 49ers, who is in the HoF as a Niner. Nice one genius.

    i doubt namdi gets any run on sunday. cable ruined him by brining him back prematurely. let him rest and play ware, he was our best press corner behind namdi and routt.

    _________________________________________________________

    This is Cable’s biggest failure in my opinion. His O-line has SUCKED. And yes to Mistic’s comment above…It is clear that we cannot handle 3-4 defenses!

    I will continue to say….Fix The O-Line, Win The Division!

    All other issues aside, including the inconsistencies at the QB and WR positions…this is our biggest failure this season. The O-line!

  • aig-raiders

    AB,

    Any real Raider fan would always choose to honor Tatum over Lott since they are both always being compared to each other. Try knowing your Raider history a little better.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Jay Cutler’s QB rating the week before against Miami was just as bad as Bruce’s.

    Only problem, our defense was a sieve and Chicago threw up a goose-egg.

  • Mistabrown

    Thank God #21 was back in the lineup Henne could hardly find an open receiver allday.

  • inonewordraider

    Jason Cambpell not starting was a big mistake but we probably lose with him playing the way Bess was wide open all day and the way Hue Jack insisted on calling pass pass pass with a hurt or just weak armed qb. We should be better because of it. We can’t give up on the run. We need Nnamdi to man up. We need our oline to regain win streak form. We need pass rush to regain the form they’ve had most of the year. Let’s see if we can rebound

  • http://www.pro-football-reference.com/ KoolKell

    Who the hell thought Cable was the guy in the first place?

    Oh yeah, the Genius.

  • Mistabrown

    We havent drafted a solid WR since Tim Brown.

    We havent drafted a solid C since D Mosebar.

    We havent had a home grown Qb since Buerlein and AL ran him out of town and he was nothing special to begin with.

    Three glaring needs…

  • ArmChair GM

    And AIG I’m glad you’re here. I supported Grads after the Arizona game and at the beginning of the season, but I jumped off his bandwagon a long time ago…

    Jacoby Ford should have had 4 TD’s yesterday if Grads was any good yesterday. He SUCKED!

    Neither he OR Campbell are going to get us the Lombardi trophy any time soon! None of them are the long term answer at QB.

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

    Qb rating maybe the most useless stat in football.

    A lousy qb might post a decent rating, and a great one could post a terrible rating.

    besides can anyone tell us the formula for qb rating?

  • Mistabrown

    KKKell, always with the trailer trash comments.

    When you have nothing just sling mug…

  • Just Fire Baby

    Don’t get the hate on the O-line still. It is all on the QB.

    As opposed to the Campbell guys who love to blame anything and everything on something else but him, I say our O-line had NOTHING to do with Bruce’s sub-par game yesterday. That’s right NOTHING.

    Miami basically went out and made Hue, Bruce and our inexperienced WR’s beat them, and they failed. Not much an O-line can do when they are sending 6,7,8 guys at the LOS each play. A few screens worked, but not enough short, move the chain type plays were called or executed to get the job done.

    The deep pass on the sideline to Ford was just awful. No way should Bruce ever think he could make that play, and no way should Hue ever think that Bruce could make that play. WTF were both of them thinking? It was 20-14 and 1st and 10 after two of our only successful runs equaled a much needed first. Bruce should have tucked it and run, Hue should have called the play-action but a different route. Talk about not knowing your personnel!!!

    I never blamed the O-line for Campbell’s issues, and I won’t blame the O-line for Bruce’s either. The QB is making them look awful by not being able to make defenses pay for consistantly crowding the LOS.

  • VanHeathen

    If the coaches r saying that DMac hasn’t been running with the same agression since the buy week, maybe we get Bush a few carries during the 1st half to see if he can create a few holes???
    it just seems like the playcalling the last 2 weeks has been very predictable and stale…

  • Mistabrown

    KKKell, who thought JaMarcus Russell & Hue Jackson were the greatest thing since sliced bread?

    You did, hypocrite.

    #21 was hurt yesterday. Obviously. And still gave up NO TD’s.. Find me the stats on the last time #21 gave up a TD when he was in MAN COVERAGE on his receiver!!

    I’ll wait……

    besides can anyone tell us the formula for qb rating?

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

    QB rating is fairly simple, you lose points for bad things and gain points for good things.

    Top 3 QB ratings in the NFL: Rivers, Vick, Brady.

    Pretty hard to argue those aren’t the 3 best QB’s in the NFL.

    Worst 3 QB ratings: Jimmy Clausen, Bruce, Derek Anderson

    Pretty hard to argue those aren’t the 3 worst QB’s in the NFL.

    I say QB rating is the most accurate measure of a QB’s value, outside of W-L

  • Just Fire Baby

    Wildcat was another moment of Hue Jackson’s brilliance.

    Have a non-QB take a snap and hand the ball off to a non-RB, who fumbled immediately.

    Again, Hue not knowing his personnel for $hit

    ________________________________________________________

    Just fire…You’re only looking at One aspect of the offensive line. Pass protection.

    The O-line is responsible for run blocking too, and they are the single biggest reason that D Mcfadden had absolutely no holes to run through on Sunday. None!

    The linebackers were 3 yards behind the line of scrimmage by the time DMac touched the ball.

    Their pass protection was ok, but their run blocking was NONEXISTANT!

    The O-line is INCONSISTENT! That equals terrible in this league, especially when your offense is centered around the run.

  • Mistabrown

    Armchair,
    CJ was hurt when he filled in for #21. I didnt pull the injury card. Didnt need to because there was no drop off. If #21 is on the field he needs to play like he belongs there.

    Qb’s are no longer afraid to throw at him, he’s over rated and over paid and now the whole NFL knows, maybe they are reading my comments…
