Why would you let Tom Cable go when he just led your team to the best record you’ve had in almost a decade? I assume it’s out of greed since he can see (can he see?) that he might actually have a group of players with some talent, but now, the Raiders as a team are about as useful as having a car without any gas.
I’m not a Raiders fan by any means, I actually loathe Raiders fans (I’m looking at you Kauffman and Erickson – kiss kiss), but let’s be honest, amazingly enough, the Raiders actually have some talent on their team. With McFadden & Bush in the backfield and Jason Campbell getting some more time in, all we need now is for Elway to get some shit straight in Denver and the AFC West won’t be so much of a joke anymore (aside from the Chargers) – I mean, hell, the 2010 Chiefs…what? They led the league in total rushing yards on the season…and the Raiders were right behind them… :-?
Any way…back to Delilah…
One area where the Raiders do need some help, is their penalty yards. In 2010, they led the NFL in penalty yards by nearly 200 yards ahead of the next team (Eagles). Maybe Al Davis will make some more changes and paint the locker room pink with pretty flowers all over to put the guys in a more blissful state of mind before heading out on to the field.
