Bad move any way you slice it. If Jackson is kept perhaps it salvages something.
As far a Lechler being a "second class citizen" or someone "rarely gets hit". What kind of shit is that? You don't think he speaks for the team? Then why did have they voted him a captain so many times? Obviously the team respects him. But some here(millernation, perhaps it is his mystery Raider he says he knows) think they know better about the pulse of the team than the guy who is on it. Really? Only time will tell. But I will take the word of the guy on the team over fans who are not privy to locker room talk.
As for Nnamdi echoing these sentiments. He has before.

Now why after saying what he says here and after the improved season we had this year, would he suddenly change his mind? Now I won't pretend to know what Nnamdi is thinking at this moment(I will leave that up to others). But I think history shows that he believes in Cable. To think that Cables leaving will not be a factor in his resigning is folly.
In the end I hope I am proved wrong. I hope who ever takes over this team takes not only to the playoffs but to our fourth Super Bowl trophy. And believe me I will stand up and proudly say I was wrong. But as history has show with this organization in the last seven years. I don't think I will have to much to worry about.
I will add this though.
How can it be Cable's fault when...
1. Its Al's offensive philosophy
2. Its Al's defensive philosophy
3. Al selected Cable's entire coaching staff
4. Al controls all the draft picks
5. Al controls the roster
6. Al controls the free agent signings
7. Al controls who the starting QB is
Do I need to keep going?
Cable's first year without Jabusto and we hang 59 points on Denver, sweep the AFC West, end the San Diego losing streak, Mcfadden sheds the bust label, and demoralize the Queefs as they head into the playoffs. DAMN!!! Imagine what could have been next year with the momentum and consistency.
