Tom Cable is arguably the worst Coach in NFL history. He calls seven step drops from the 3 yard line on the first play from scrimmage with the worst Right Tackle in the league(Khalif Barnes) against a monstrously possesed DE named Calvin Pace(Jets game; youtube it) But lost amongst all the Drama in Raider Nation is the REAL culprit for the lack of success of not only the Oakland Raiders but Jamarcus Russell as well. Who gave Cable playcalling abilities?
Throughout this tumultuous time, I have been an Avid Al Davis Supporter. He didnt hesitate to take the best QB in the 2006 NFL draft in Jamarcus Russell. An extremely accomplished, highly accurate QB (68% career at LSU). Russell wowed NFL scouts as he zipped the ball to receivers of all calibur with rocket like power and precision. Everyone loved him except for one mysteriously hateful infidel named Lane Kiffin. Lane Kiffin made us believe that Josh McCown(An NFL Bum) was better than Jamarcus, the same way we believe in Gradkowski. Hell, I even believed, until I saw them play!
Gradkowski is an inferior QB who lacks intelligence and leadership and should be relegated to the wildcat offense(or prison) like most of his Black scrambling counterpart. If we are to cheer on an undersized scrambling QB with questionable throwing skills, then at least we could lobby for the services of Mike Vick Next year, and not the likes of Bruce Gradkowsh*t.
It really does not matter who is behind center as long as the clue-less Cable is in charge. Talk about a lack of leadership skills. Here's a guy who's watched his team get RHEEMED by the Referees week in and week out, yet has only garnered TWO unsportsman-like calls in protest. I would have gotten that opening night against the Chargers in the first half!
When the Raiders were screwed out of the second K.C. game (unlike last years mysterious fake field goal call via Cable) by a GHOST tripping call which negated a fifty yard pass from Jamarcus to Murphy to the 1 yard line for the go ahead score, Cable said , and I quote "Thats something you got to live with" and proceeded to shovel more blame onto Jamarcus and and away from his incompetent self. What a leader.
My greatest opposition to Big Al is NOT Jamarcus, DHB, or any other player acquisitions he has made over the years, to quote both Jabril Wilson and Gary Russell "The Raiders are the most talented team I have ever played on." They both won Superbowls the past two years. But it is the fact that he has hired the WORST coaches possible for this team over this losing stretch. And Cable by FAR and AWAY is the worst EVER! Bye Bye Cable guy.
