For now...I like Cable as the head coach. I like his philosophy for fixing this football team. I like his philosophy for the defense, line up and just beat the man in front of you, nothing fancy...smash mouth.

If he doesn't get charged (or fired) for knocking out his assistant, I think he can be successful. It would help if Al Davis stopped meddling.

Well i like what the Raiders showed. If Jamarcus can not throw picks and be sorta accurate he can wins games this season.
There OL is pretty strong up front giving room for all the running backs they have.
Defense is there weak point IMO opinion, Got torn up on the final drive.

Defense may be the weak point still, and sometime during the year, but it sure wasn't last night. Yeah, they lost it on the final drive, but they played outstanding ball most of the night. We haven't been able to stop the run for 6 years... longer really. Last night was Christmas to see them shut the run down. Hopefully, it will continue.

It was a much better showing than I expected. They may win a game or two this year that no one gave them a chance at if they can keep playing like they did Monday night. Small steps last night to returning to being a good team, but steps none the less.
Absolutely. This year's Raiders look promising which is more than I could say over the last several years. They seem to have more confidence and that confidence showed last night in their play.

The Raiders might be the best of the worst. They can compete with the Lions, Chiefs, Bucs, Rams, Bungles, Browns, Bills, etc for the first draft pick bowl. Nothing drastic is changing. They most likely shot their wad already.

I agree, but I don't want Garcia playing... not that it matters now. I'm not concerened with winning right now with a one year guy... two at best, for the sake of winning. I want this team to be progressing with the guy that will be here for the long haul. Winning now isn't, or shouldn't be the goal. Becoming a good team again, and sustaining it, is.

That's why they play the games. Time will tell.

I know this game is over, but it looks like LT has another ankle injury on the report. Day to Day.

The guy's made of glass lemme tell you. His time in the NFL is done.

I was actually envious of the run-game that the Raiders were mounting. It was rather impressive. The push that their line was getting, and the pass protection they were giving JR were of the levels that I haven't seen our line play at in quite some time......
