Jan. 11th's Advance Headline

At least one of the following events will take place very shortly: Tom Cable will be dislodged from the HC position; JaMarcus Russell will be dropped from the Raiders' roster. It's a tough choice when trying to decide which of these two individuals has been more disappointing, which one has done more damage to the team's ability to win. Cable's play calling and player usage clearly indicate he's in over his head - if not insane. Some players have expressed affection for this dotard but on Monday Cable said in an interview that "everyone is to blame" for this season. This is patently unfair and untrue. There is no way that Branch, Huff, Asomuga, Scott, Miller, Ellis, Gradkowski, Janikowski, Lechler, Bush, Fargas and Howard have a share in the blame for this season's 5-11 outcome. These players excelled despite the mishandling of the team's resources, game strategy, tactics, discipline, play calling, choice of players and positions and so forth. Cable's attempt to splatter the blame evenly was the act of a coward. We could have gone 8-8 but for the horrible choices Cable made in the K.C, Washington and Cleveland games. On the other hand, Russell is an amazing human specimen with regard to his physical gifts - but that's as far as it goes. In terms of his character and, perhaps, football intelligence he is unfit to lead the Raiders' offense or any other NFL team's - he, like his coach, has contributed mightily to this team's disappointing season.
