The Obvious Choice

OAKLAND, CA - Tom Cable has officially been named the head coach of the illustrious Oakland Raiders. Cable was named the interim coach after the sudden firing of Lane Kiffin earlier this season. This latest move has Raider fans holding their head like they just finished running suicides. Clearly Al Davis saw the recent hirings...and thought it would be best to hire a coach without any coordinator experience at the NFL level. Tom Cable was the head coach at the University of Idaho, his alma mater, from 2000–2003. At Idaho, Cable compiled a record of 11–35 (.239) in four straight losing seasons. The Vandals surprisingly did not renew Cable's contract at the conclusion of the 2003 season, and he quickly parlayed his success to become the offensive line coach for the Raiders.

Who didn't see this move coming? It was obvious that Cable was the front runner right? I have to say I'm not surprised, Davis loves to draft terrible players and give them huge contracts. This has been a well documented recipe for franchise failure in the NFL, and also in Madden. Maybe Al Davis is a damn psychic and saw a winning resemblance in this guy that the rest of the league could not. Although the only resemblance I see is that of Tom Arnold. It is uncertain who Cable will hire as his staff, but I'd venture to say that he'll be the least accomplished of the group...unless he decides to snag one of the Browns' estranged coaches from 2008. We should feel sorry for the Raiders, but lets not forget the team we root for every Sunday fucking sucks too. In conclusion, I have nothing left to say because I just caught word that there is a new Hannah Montana video.
