Now let me tell you up front, I like Tom Cable and what he has done for the Raiders, bringing a needed enthusiam, that was sorely missing for years by the previous coaches, since Gruden. But what has got my head, in this frame of mind is, what he hasn't done !!!! And it's real disturbing too. Watching the Titans game, and who they got for a Line Coach; Mike Munchak !!! Well if you remember him, played for the Oilers and blocked for Earl Campbell, and was mean SOB blocking, made me start thinking about Cable.
First and formost, Cable is a good players Coach. The players bust their azz's off for this man. A very BIG plus for him, which probably kept him from biting the dust last year. But what he was brought here for was to help build our OFFENSIVE LINE, back to respectability. And on this note. I have to say he hasn't done that. The 2 draft picks were good, not knocking them, but with the inactivity of a trade for an upgrade at this these critical spots, being both the tackle positions. The Rooks are the future, and with both of them playing different positions than they were drafted for. And yet NOTHING has been done to fix them most obvious of problems. Mario Henderson, sometimes good, sometimes bad !!! Langston Walker...NO Comment. My mother taught me if you can't say anything good....Well you guys know the rest !!! The Second Team Tackles............hmmmmmmm................ok....ummmmmmmmm, ahhh shit, if they have to play, OUR QB's are, or will be the Walking dead, and the bad thing is, THEY WON'T BE WALKING !!!
Now far as the inactivity on a trade, and now that cuts have been made, and still NO activity on working the waivers, and yes, I know cuts at the tackle position of anyone worthy, didn't happen, but the IDEA that no one was brought in is damn Confusing !!! San Diego made a deal for a tackle yesterday, since McNeil hasn't signed yet.
Here my Question to the Nation: Has Cable told Big Al D., That we don't need to bring in any players,
1) Well be okay !!
2) He can Coach these guys up !!!
3) No one is out there that this team can use !!!
Now Just to let you know, I went at took a look at Tom's coaching history, and lets just say, it's amazing He's in the position he in !!! I mean REALLY , REALLY !!! I would add the resume, but i almost lost this post, and was lucky enough to pull it back from the cursor hell. ( you guys know what that is right, when yourcursor just does it own thing, and hit buttons you don't want hit, and your shit just dissapears) I call that Cursor Hell !!!
Google Tom's coahing history if you havn't already !!!
Because the one JOB, that he was brought in to do, WELL, He Just Hasn't Done !!! Bottom line, He wasn't a very good player, his coaching career is say to least, has been marginal in sucess !!!
