Sure, he got better, but according to most on the mane, there is a 3 year rule.

No, here's the point;


The Raiders finally had an upswing after many miserable seasons of abject failure.

Even though they missed the playoffs, they beat every other team in their division twice. Including beating the living **** out of our team.

The organization (we assume Al Davis) responds by promptly firing the Head Coach. Ridiculous.

Was the improvement on Cable or was that Jackson the guy that looks like will be the Raiders new HC. If Cable was responsible the move makes no sense but if Jackson was the one responsible and he gets the HC job well you gotta say good move..

If Cable is the main reason the Raiders are finally playing good football well it's hard to imagine that even Al Davis is crazy enough to fire him. Is he?

Tom Cable did alright. He wasn't given talent across the board, except at RB's and WR's.
They're missing a big time QB.

when Frown Cannon wears out his welcome in CHI, he'll end up in OAK. he'll have to come up with something new for his press conference though... i'm not sure many Raiders fans can count to 6, much less 9... unless they take off their shoes and use their toes.

I'll go on the record saying I wouldn't mind Cable here even as HC - but there are a number of others I would prefer first and certainly some that should come later.

The main reason is that I give Cable a big pass for the Jabust years - he clearly wanted him out but Greasy Al insisted he start. There just isn't much you can do to win games when you don't dare to pass the ball.

If Al is firing Cable because he's scared Jackson is gonna leave then he again is shooting himself in the foot. Basically, he's firing a good coach so that another team does not hire his OC. That's like taking a draft pick so that another team does not pick that draft pick.

Al Davis is letting a good guy go (a raider guy) so that another team does not hire his OC. Whatever. It basically screws with continuity and demonstrates that Al has no loyalty. He's the creepiest of creeps. Al demands unbridled loyalty from his staff, yet puts a knife in your back the minute he feels threatened.

Meh.. Cable has reached his ceiling IMO. 99 percent of the Raiders improvement this year can be attributed to Hue Jackson's offense and a fantastic draft. Neither of which Cable is responsible for. Cable was brought in (under Kiffin) to run the chop block and vaseline scheme which we dont run anymore.

See this is what I thought but when your punter of 10 years jumps in and basically calls out Al Davis and speculates that many of your 20 free agents will now leave because of the firing than I am forced to rethink my opinion.

What is the consensus in Raider land?

And that is very much the case, but the fact is that no one wants to coach for the raiders because Davis is so unstable. Cable took the job when no one else wanted it. The team is actually on the upswing because Cable weathered the storm. Now that Cable has been axed do you really think Harbaugh wants to step into the meat grinder? No way. Hue Jackson my come in and be the next HC but I guarantee you if the faiders don't get into the playoffs next year, he will be the sacrificial lamb...

I have my issues with Al, but you're just being ridiculous.

Unless my math is off, Singletary's tenure was the same length as Tom Cables.

If I'm reading the tea leaves right, Harbaugh is going to SF and Hue Jackson is just fufilling the Rooney rule without the 49'ers having to pop for air fare.

Try not to be a raiders fan and answer this question. If you're Harbaugh and you have to choose between Oakland and SF, which do you take all things being equal?

Of all the pro and college teams supposedly after Harbaugh, does Al really think he'll choose them? :rofl:

Bare in mind, this article was written back in 2008.

I'm not Harbaugh.. apparently he's pretty fond of Al Davis. If you read my post I said he's probably going to SF though. HJ fufills SF's Rooney rule requirement.

But Harbaugh loves the Raiders and loves Al even more. He just does. Thereís chemistry there.

Every decent coach in the sport runs away from Al like heís the Devil Incarnate, and for some that he has hired, thatís exactly who He is.

But Harbaugh coached on the offensive staff for two years in Oakland, thatís where he got his NFL coaching start. He has a powerful personality that connected with AD from the start. Harbaugh still goes out of his way to praise AD and nuzzle up to the Legend and Image of the Greatness.

As an outsider, it might be easy to be fond of Al, but as his HC, do you take the job over SF? Both Oak and SF have young talent but no real QB, both teams are in pretty similar situations.

So, if your Harbaugh (take your raider's cap off!) do you pick Oak or SF?

He's not an outsider, he was an offensive assistant for the Raiders.

Did you read my post? I already said that Harbaugh is probably going to SF. But Harbaugh to the Raiders is not as farfetched as you may think.


Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh may be in play for the Oakland Raiders.

@Raiders3023: @mortreport Does Hue Jackson take over? >> Some expect a dance with Harbaugh, too

@MrMichael_Smith: I know there's the whole Al Davis thing, but keep in mind he worked for him b4, so what's the better Bay Area gig for Harbaugh? OAK or SF?
Chris Mortenson & Michael Smith

It doesnt matter what I think, I'm not Jim Harbaugh.

If the Yorks were going to saddle me with Alex Smith, I'd probably take the Oakland job.

*** Why would Harbaugh want the Raiders?

First, he wants to be an NFL head coach, either now or someday.

That makes perfect sense given that he spent so much time in the league — you do that, it becomes a part of you — and that his brother is a current head coach.

But of equal importance in this case: Harbaugh likes Al and believes in the Raiders.

*** Seriously?

Yep, he’s one of a handful of people on the planet who drink the Silver and Black Kool-Aid.

*** Would he take the Raiders job if offered?

In my opinion: Yes.

this is the same paper who also drinks the Al Davis kool-aide... not a real reliable source IMHO...

I wonder if Harbaugh would shun the Broncos due to his loyalty to Davis? I can see him sayng "no" to the Broncos but not saying "yes" to Oakland just to keep Davis on his good side...

See this is what I thought but when your punter of 10 years jumps in and basically calls out Al Davis and speculates that many of your 20 free agents will now leave because of the firing than I am forced to rethink my opinion.

?

The Raiders were in a lot worse shape back when Asmougha and Lechler signed their deals yet they still signed.

I hope our draft is just as dysfunctional next season.. we owned this past draft.... Hell Don Banks had 4 of our guys going in the 1st round in his "redraft"

You guys are going to saddle some poor guy with Tebow and that ridiculous wind up.....I mean you traded up to draft Scott Frost.
