We've been waiting a long time. Tom Cable needs to be fired soon. Al Davis is moving too slow (pun-esque) on this. I know that this is Al Davis' style, but he needs to tell Cable his fate so we can move on from him. 

What could Al Davis possibly be pondering right now?

A guy with a 9-19 record shouldn't be kept on as head coach. Or should he? Nope, just messing around. But here is what I think Al Davis is pondering about:

1. I'm too old for this.

2. Well, if I keep him, I won't tell him directly.

3. I wonder if there's anyway to fire him with cause. 

So, when is it going to happen? I'm going with an over-under of three days. I actually pick the over, because if it has taken Davis this long he may as well wait a couple more days.
