July is here, and training camps are right around the corner. So why not start the “is the coach in trouble” discussion now?
When JaFumble Russell was set to return this year, rumors started flying that Cable would be fired. Al Davis was interviewing people for coordinator positions, like Hue Jackson, who many thought could be brought in as the coach instead.
Then the interesting happened…they made a trade for Jason Campbell and after their first mini-camp after the draft, JaFumble was shown the door. Cable was given his wish.
This team is more like their head coach, a team that seems to be a hard working group that is going to fight to the end. That means more is going to be expected, too.
With multiple years of winning 4 and 5 games, though, if Cable does not start strong this year, he won’t last past the bye week. His seat is hot! (but then again, isn’t is always for a Raiders coach???)
