    Looks like Cable made Filet Mignon out of a COW PIE!


    I’m arguing with someone who thinks 8-8 is “filet mignon”. Forget it.

  • Add a DC, CB, another LB, and this defense can be special.
    I will only replace Cable with Harbaugh or Gruden.

  • LMAO Raccoon. are you hungry bro?

  • It’s a sad state of affairs how many Raider fans today think 8-8 is successful. How far we’ve fallen…

  • We lost to Tenn, AZ, SF, Miami, Texans, and Jax. That alone should be enough to get a HC fired. We should have won 3 more games. Atleast 2 more!!

  • How can you go 6-0 in your division, but only manage to win 2 games outside of the division? Especially against teams like AZ, SF, etc….
    The only 2 wins outside the division were against the Rams and Seattle.

    Hire Harbaugh or Gruden.

  • Remember when we lost to Tennessee some of the kool aid drinkers were saying that Tennessee will be in the AFC championship game? LOL. I might have to go back and see who it was. Or, at least check their writing style, because they probably changed their names.

    Still miffed that Davis traded Gruden to the Buccaneers after ‘01. And still remember the press at the time. Most were of the opinion that Davis got the better of the deal, even as they were trying to figure out what it meant for a coach to be traded. But what sane organization changes the head coach when a team is so close? None other than the Raiders, to my knowledge. That includes such models of sanity as D. Sterling, Robert Irsay, Art Modell, and Bud Adams. But Davis does it in ‘02.

    What that tells me is that Davis thinks HE is the ultimate decision maker, not the head coach. Any head coaching change in Oakland doesn’t reflect the coach’s ability to succeed, but the coach’s ability to succeed while doing it Al’s way. Cowher won’t do it Al’s way. Neither will Parcels. Or any other high profile coach. That’s part of being a high profile coach. You have ideas of your own, a style, an approach to the game.

    Problem is, I don’t think Cable’s version of Al Davis football is as adaptable as Gruden’s. Hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see it going to the Super Bowl.
