The Raiders had their finest season in 8 years because of the young talent on the team, and coach Tom Cable. The basis for this change was a “can do” belief that Tom Cable had installed. Cable is no longer under contract with the Raiders after this season and has since been released. Cable has done something that the other 20 coaches you fired since 2002 have not done Al. WIN! Thanks for helping us become yet the WTF talk of the NFL again Al. You seem to love to flex your 100 year old arms at the wrong time to prove you are still the boss. In doing so, you make us as fans who have followed your team relentlessly look like buffoons. We have followed you through every WTF decision you have made. I’ve had to try to make since of you logic on many occasions and found myself scratching my own head (aka let’s draft another kicker in the first round).
What’s next Al? Are you going to hire a 19 year old coach so you can have the “I hired the youngest coach” bragging rights again? Are you going to hire a woman? Are you going to hire an albino gorilla? What?
You were once a blazing pioneer in the league Al. Those days are long since gone. All the great things you have done in the NFL are forgotten because of the inane, absurd and the bizarre decisions you have made in the last 20 years. Good luck on finding someone to work for you. I guess we can look forward to another hire from within because no “high-quality” coach in their right mind would work for such a control freak like you.
“This is going to hit 99 percent of the locker room really hard because people respected how he dealt with us and where we were headed,” Robert Gallery told reporters.
“It’s definitely a step back from what we’ve done going forward the last year or two.”
