The Raiders haven't stopped falling yet. What happens to a team when their coach is arrested?

In addition to enduring yet another difficult loss, the Oakland Raiders are bracing for the possibility that coach Tom Cable could be arrested soon in relation to an alleged assault on an assistant coach. Criminal charges against Cable could lead to a suspension by the league. "Everybody is trying to figure out who's going to take over if Tom isn't here," said an assistant coach, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. "John Marshall has a lot of experience, he's probably the guy. But it's nuts. It's crazy when you start to really think about it."

In addition to enduring yet another difficult loss, the Oakland Raiders are bracing for the possibility that coach Tom Cable could be arrested soon in relation to an alleged assault on an assistant coach. Criminal charges against Cable could lead to a suspension by the league.

“Everybody is trying to figure out who’s going to take over if Tom isn’t here,” said an assistant coach, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “John Marshall has a lot of experience, he’s probably the guy. But it’s nuts. It’s crazy when you start to really think about it.”

Although Napa Valley (Calif.) police have declined to comment on the investigation, NFL.com quoted the attorney for Raiders assistant coach Randy Hanson as saying that Hanson told police he had been assaulted by Cable on Aug. 5 while the Raiders were in training camp. Hanson was treated for a broken jaw and his attorney, San Francisco-based John McGuinn, said three other coaches, including Marshall, witnessed the attack.

McGuinn did not return three messages left by Yahoo!, but told NFL.com that the situation was “a textbook case of felony assault.”

“I’m not going to address the case, but it’s not as simple as just making an arrest,” Lewis said. “You don’t know the issues involved with the case.”

If arrested, Cable could also face a suspension from the NFL for violation of the personal conduct policy. Under the policy, coaches and executives are held to the same standard, if not a higher one, than the players.

The Raiders, defeated 29-6 by the Houston Texans on Sunday, have played progressively worse through the season’s first four weeks. After a late-game loss in the opener to the San Diego Chargers, the Raiders struggled to beat the winless Kansas City Chiefs in the second game and have scored a total of nine points in their past two games.

This might be a good thing for them.

Personally I hope Cable, JaMarcus, and Al stay in the EMPTY HOLE for many, many years.

If a mod would like to merge these two threads http://www.orangemane.com/BB/showthread.php?t=85100 I'd be all in favor of it, good post though Roh, illustrating the Raiders monumental stupidity can never be overdone. :)

Well ... I might be able to clear my schedule to finish up for the Raiders.

If I had run the Raiders the past three years, they'd have Matt Schaub, Randy Moss and Calvin Johnson right now. Seriously.

Heard on the radio this morning that some of the preliminary legal action may be resolved as early as today, and that would allow Goodell to address the issue during Oakland's trip to NY. How many games suspension is it for breaking a coaches Jaw again?

He's a Raider, isn't that some sort of crime?

Only in the other 49 states.

Nothing is going to end up happening to this guy IMO. If what was written about the punk that he punched out is true, I would have done it myself.

Cable's last head coaching stint was at the University of Idaho where he was fired after 4 wins in 3 seasons, if I remember correctly.

But heah, Al Davis will take him!

I predict what will happen is chaos; the inmates will be running the assylum after he's arrested....oh wait, that wouldn't be new...never mind.

Oh yeah. His track suit and jazzie roaming the Oakland sideline as he tells Jabarfus to throw it to Dave Casper and yells at a 6 year old for not getting the faider mystique...
