Report: Raiders 'intrigued' w/ Josh McDaniels

According to longtime San Francisco reporter Nancy Gay, the Raiders are "intrigued" with ex-Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels as a replacement for Tom Cable.
Gay also passes along "word from Alameda" that Al Davis won't pick up Cable's contract option for 2011, a scenario already reported as "unlikely" by Adam Schefter of ESPN. According to Gay, current Raiders OC Hue Jackson also intrigues Davis as a head coaching candidate. Cable must be informed by January 18 whether his option will be exercised. Right now, it's not looking good. Jan. 2 - 5:53 pm et

Rumor is that OAK's improvement this season is due more to new OC Hue Jackson & new DC Mike Waufle than it is due to Tom Cable's influence. Fear is that Hue Jackson will be offered a HC position somewhere else in the league very soon. Conclusion: AL Davis might make Jackson the HC & make Cable the O-line coach.

P.S. Wauffle & Jackson have a more extensive relationship together than they do with Cable.

I think he is doing an excellent job, and they would be another year further down the road if Al wouldn't have tried to force Jafatfuck down Cable's throat.

01-02-2011, 06:41 PM
Similar to a Russ Grimm role that Whizenhunt has in AZ. Assuming Cable doesn't get another HC gig which could be the case either NFL or College. He's done well with that team with the poor choices for QB's and the senile old fart Davis.

I think it's crazy that Al fired Cable, since they appear to be turning in the right direction, slowly.

But, I don't understand any love for Cable as an OC or OLine. How many high, fairly respected draft picks have flamed out recently for the Raiders. And their offense has not historically been great either.

Really, what has Cable ever done as a coordinator?
