Cable and players not happy with officiating

The game between the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs yielded 27 penalties for 240 yards. While the teams were shy of breaking any NFL records for most infractions and yards penalized, so many penalties between two teams in a single game is not very common.

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.

Thursday Raiders

Unfortunately, I’ve missed some time here at 1220 Harbor Bay Parkway, but I was able to make it today. At .500 this late in the season for the first time in years coupled with the end of the Giants’ World Series run, the Raiders have definitely become the relevant news story for the Bay Area judging by the number of reporters in the locker room today.

Among the notables here who haven’t been in the past: Pedro Gomez of ESPN, Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated, and everyone’s favorite Raider Hater — Tim Kawakami. There were plenty of others, but those are the most notable that I haven’t seen yet this 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.
