Some may think I’m a little nuts for saying that Charlie Frye is a better quarterback than Bruce Gradkowski, and I admit that I don’t have a statistical leg to stand on, but I’m going to hold true to my assessment that the Raiders have a better chance of winning with Frye in 2010.
If you were to poll Raider Nation on what position the team needs to improve in order to get better, most would probably say that it’s the quarterback position. Wide receiver might give the quarterback answer a run for the money. After that, you’d probably have the stalwarts choosing offensive line and some still hoping for some more defensive help.
You’ve been reading about it, hearing about it, and probably anticipating it, but you can stop wasting your time–because Tom Cable will be the Raiders’ head coach in 2010. All of it!
Monday’s press conference with Tom Cable once again brought out some of the bottom feeders from ESPN to go along with most of the usual suspects. Apparently, ESPN needed more stuff to add to their hatchet piece on Cable’s past relationships with women.
While the JaMarcus Russell watch continues, that is the watching to see if he’s benched before Tom Cable is fired, the roster in the locker room continues to believe in their leader(s). At least, that’s what they are saying.
While the fan base and the rest of the world can already see that this marriage between Russell and Cable is bound for divorce at some time in the near future, the rest of the team isn’t letting on that they see the same picture. Maybe, just maybe, that’s the problem.
Now that ‘most’ of the truth is out about the Randy Hanson affair, Tom Cable will now stop answering questions about whether or not he’s worried about going to the big house. Instead of being asked if he’s worried about the Napa County D.A., he’ll be asked if he’s worried about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
The first two games, the Raiders were outscored 34-33, but they were able to pull out a win. Since that time, the Raiders have been outscored 96-16 in three straight losses.
JaMarcus Russell told reporters on Thursday that he had a cold. “I got a cold, so watch out. I ain’t got no Swine Flu now. Don’t put that on me. Uh-uh. I don’t need that.” Russell might not have the Swine Flu, but his play has helped give the Raiders’ offense the football equivalent.
The Oakland Raiders have made some moves of late, but don’t think they aren’t considering more in the coming days or weeks. With the injuries they’ve had to overcome and the different roster moves they’ve made to counteract those injuries, they’ve even lost a player or two that they wish they hadn’t.
The 1-1 Oakland Raiders will take on the 2-0 Denver Broncos at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum today. The Raiders come into the game mired in a passing game slump, while the Broncos are still trying to find a consistent offensive output.
The Raiders waived Louis Rankin in order to promote Jonathan Holland from the practice squad. Holland will be in the lineup as a cornerback and a possible kick and punt returner. Michael Huff will be starting at free safety in place of Hiram Eugene who is inactive today due to a lower leg injury.
