Lane Kiffin is laughing his ass off on this one. J-Bust was the very reason he was fired!!

Getting rid of Russell is one of the best moves the Raiders have made since coming back to Oakland.

It is about f**cking time! We may have a good season this year...great mini camp, good draft solid 'D' and a decent QB with some seasoned Wideouts and a improved 'O' line and great running backs....I feel good about may Raiders!

I've got a feeling that Tom Cable lit a fire under Al Davis. I think Al Davis is intimidated by Cable after what happened to Randy Hanson and actually takes him seriously when he tells him what's best for the team. Cable shouldn't have to worry about what Davis thinks when he has to bench a player no matter who that player is. We seem to be managing like a football team instead of an Al Davis Dictatorship. WIN in 2010!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think Al is intimidated but I do think Cable has earned his respect. Al's not goping away but I believe it is Cable's team. This should be a good year for the Silver and Black.

I think Cable and Davis respected one another and Cable did the things Davis wanted him to do and proved that he needed to take a different direction. Therefore Davis allowed Cable to take the reins and go with it.

Well that may or may not be true...Cable was given the job not hired for it soooo at the end of the season he had to earn the respect and beat out the competition to keep the job (there were some who thought he wasn't the right guy for the job as I recall). Pesonally I think he is the right guy! Silver and Black forever....Just Win Baby!

Real tough trying to "beat out competition" when there was none for the coaching job this year with the Faiders
