1.4: Paul Gutierrez on Tom Cable
Our Raiders Insider weighs in on the news that Tom Cable will not return.
In California Raiders insider Paul Gutierrez who joins us now an opponent Paul what's the latest information that you received. Hey guys know -- basically. You know spoke -- Raiders senior executive. John Herrera and he told me that they have not reached out to anybody yet that they made the first order of business was to let up. Tom cable knows that they were not renewing his contract and -- at the very important thing you're you're gonna hear all these. Stories and rumors and innuendo that he was fired -- not fired his contract ran out. And they chose not to pick up the source close to the contract itself. Men in the with knowledge of the situation told me that.

A lot of the things that were positive for our people could also be construed as being negative. You know -- Bottom line the Raiders. Look at themselves and and how they must look at himself this team should be in the playoffs -- they should be winning Super Bowl every year you don't laugh about it you want to bet that. The mindset going in and even though there were seven years of eleven losses or more going into the easily broke that string. I read an Al Davis after the game and our utilities and not too good and and I basically try to just make all double. Eight they are pretty nice finish to the year and it looked at repeated that it that the what do you -- So that -- -- can be that that told me that a little foreshadowing that that was not gonna say Tom cable being six -- division.
