Raiders Coaching Staff

<< < (148/148)

Chucky had two back to back 8-8 seasons before turning this team around. But he did not have half the mess to clean up that Cable was left with. The JaBusto situation can not be understated. I have heard "experts" say that drafting the wrong franchise QB can set a franchise back 4 years or worse. look no further than the Lions, Browns, Bengals, Redskins, Chargers, and Ravens.

Cable has earned the right to one more year. If next year shows no improvement (by that I mean playoffs or a MUCH better record), then I too will join the chant for a new head coach. Just remember as long as Al is running the show, the pickings will be slim.

Things going against Tom is a 3 win improvement when u consider Al has

1. Cut Jamarcus
2. Hired an OC
3. Drafted awesomely round 1 thru 7
4. Had an easier schedule in 2010 compared to 2009

don't get me wrong sweeping the division is nice, but when u play division games that often. The playbook takes a backseat to matchups where players play on instincts.

& any of the players who says Cable is a players coach only needs to know that Al wouldn't fire Tom unless he believed his having an upgrade. I've just gone thru a transition at my work where the CEO has just been fired and he was a workers boss. Really upset to see him go. But the new guy is a real cut throat leader on the front foot. I don't need to like my new boss but i can respect him for his vision and getting to the goals his set out.

If Cable does get let go, don't all whinge about Al being a terrible GM. He's proven his critics wrong by cutting Russell, hiring an offensive coordinator and having a solid draft. Cable is to blame for translating that into only 3 extra wins.

Maybe this year is different, since Cable still had a year left on his contract last year, but that contract is going to expire on January 18, 2011. Al Davis is "contractually obligated" to tell Cable by January 18th whether or not he intends to exercise the one-year, $2.5 million option (a half million dollar pay increase) on Cable's contract.
