1.24: Cable Watch: A SportsNet Central Report
It was a quiet Sunday and Raiders headquarters with no sign -- Al Davis nor Tom cable and that actually might be a sign of what's to come. And I briefing counters with coach cable this week MI numerous conversations with Raiders officials. It's my understanding that Oakland's coaching staff including Tom cable will be making the trip this week out to Alabama for the senior ball. Now what is that Tom cable's future. The team still has no more money out -- on his role for 2010. But I did -- which John her wrath on Sunday afternoon and he told me that this'll be an ongoing situation that will be evaluated until a complete it. Andy and Kate longworth Comcast sports net. Are right Kate thank you very much so ESPN is saying he's staying the Raiders say they have not made it this is -- Tom cable's future or the coaching resistant. At this very moment bill Roman oust his sixteen year -- has talked to demand in the now that's the guy pulling the trigger Al Davis and a we don't know anything at this point other than we're staking out trying to see if Tom -- -- is still gonna be at the raiders' practice facility Romo what have you heard him on Woody and. Well I I think all. We know right now is what Adam -- there had to say on ESPN. And what he said his cable say I know his connection is with Tom cable and I'm sure he's talked on. But unless mr. Davis has come out and said that Tom cable is. My head coach from 2000 and yeah. I don't think that is immaculate and I stayed with the so we have to be real careful about what will say because and we just made. Made mr. Davis -- that it may just wanted to change his mind you. -- this point we do know that they have hired defensive line coach Mike -- but in -- released statement specifically he had a great relationship with Tom. Table that would lead Estes. Do at least speculate that Tom cable would be the guy otherwise that -- -- I've been part of that release. Well my wall for -- -- this way and we went to the super ball so he has a relationship with the Raiders and has a relationship without Davis he's a great football coach. And I think the fact that he is close with Tom cable. Does that really mean anything I think it means more that he has a relationship. With Al Davis and that he helped. Al Davis and the defense of line in helped coach that team that I was a part of and help this goes Super Bowl. I think the question of the day Romo lies in the fact that who is going to be the quarterback next season Al Davis to the wrist and bringing in JaMarcus Russell million dollar guy who he wants to groom as the future leader. Of that Raiders team that bed. About cable sat him down classy thing that they've basically he can't win Bruce Gradkowski is forgot how much did that does that decision play and who. Who's going to be the head coach. And video outs made by it was good -- the market for another shot. But -- is key here is you have to. You develop young quarterback that's what this is all about. And JaMarcus Russell is the future of this organization. Had somehow some. Way they've got to figure out away to get the most out of him. Him and whether he's a quarterback in the beginning I think he will be. Tom cable's job will depend on him developing. JaMarcus Russell into a big time quarterback. With all that's gone on -- We're talking about -- two weeks of cable Watson you know mr. Davis better than anyone here. Do you get a sense that this is going to be sooner than later that the decisions going to be -- because they can't go on through. Why I think the longer you wait on this decision the better it looks first. Coach cable. And young mr. Davis is a guy that likes to reach out to his network of people he likes that talked every one he knows and they get a feel for what they banked. Ultimately. He's a great football mind he's gonna make that decision but he does like to reach out. To people that he feels confident and trust their opinion to see what they think. Ultimately Al Davis is going to call the shots and what Al Davis wants it is what Al Davis gets we do know. That Tom cable is headed to the Senior Bowl called stats and take -- Look at some of the -- out there for the Raiders so that's gotta count for something. Our -- thanks for the information step back.
