Tom Cable and Hue Jackson pleased but not satisfied

After each of the last two Raiders wins, Tom Cable has made a point to tell his team, and reporters, that there are plenty of things that still need to be fixed before he’s satisfied. With dominating wins by 30-plus points the last two weeks, it’s likely that the Raiders’ head coach will never quite be satisfied — unless he’s holding the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season.

Raiders erupt for big win in Denver

“I think a lot of it has to do with just the mentality of how we’re playing our coverage,” said Raiders’ head coach Tom Cable when discussing why the Raiders’ secondary had only two interceptions after playing in six games. On the first play from scrimmage for the Denver Broncos, Raiders corner Chris Johnson jumped a route and intercepted a Kyle Orton pass intended for Jabar Gaffney, then took it 30 yards the other way to put the Raiders on top 14-0 just after 4:24 of play.

Raiders not committed to a starter at center

When the week began, reporters questioned Tom Cable about any possible changes to the offensive line. Very few, if any, considered that Jared Veldheer was part of that loaded question. Normally when questioning someone, you have two or three parts to the question as long as the answer leads in the right direction.

Hot day doesn’t stop Raiders from putting on a show

The Raiders practiced in temperatures exceeding 100 degrees today in front of members of the Raider Nation. The fans filled the sidelines to watch the team go through a pretty standard workout in shorts and without pads.

JaMarcus Russell: ‘I think the fans are fed up’

Thursdays are the days that the Raiders have JaMarcus Russell talk with the press. Besides Mondays, it’s probably the most packed day of the week. Russell fielded questions after the quick walk-through prior to Thursday’s practice, and he was more accountable for his play this season.
