Raiders' Mix of Youth and Vets a Winning Formula

There are 13 comments on the tfdssports.com story from May 28, 2009, titled Raiders' Mix of Youth and Vets a Winning Formula. In it, tfdssports.com reports that:

Among the qualities that the Raiders have desperately lacked in the last few years has been solid veteran leadership. Most of the players on this team are original Raiders who were drafted or acquired as undrafted free agents during these six seasons of futility. And while many of those players have grown as players, most of them have seen nothing but losing since becoming an NFL player.

Jon Gruden had a winning team of mostly vets and I think he should've won at least 1 superbowl. I don't know if we would've gotten by Baltimore in the 2000-2001 season, but the call against the Patriotic Losers was ridiculous; even Tom Brady admitted it was a fumble caused by Charles Woodson and recovered by Greg Biekert. Oh god that gets me wound up just thinking about it.

Okay better now, got a fresh cig going; anyways I'd like to see Tom Cable pull the unthinkable season and take us to the promise land with our youthful talent.

Both JBGirl and TR are on to something here....Gruden was ...scratch that... is a good coach and has a winning mentality....expects to win regardless who is playing on the team....that's what Cable brings...its about football and x's and o's .....that's it....forget the "name players" we want to win football games no matter whose name is on the back of the Jersey. Looking forwrd to seeing what we can achieve this year....

i agree,it's just that cable does not yell at these players the way gruden did. and i personally am not against the yelling part but that thing about not carring how famous you are to be a starter is what i like. if you can play better, your in!

another thing, now that we're on that subject!russell and garcia, who should really be the starter? i feel that russell should be the starter. but how far into the games do you exchange the (qb's) if russell was to struggle? well, lady's and gentlemen, i think russell will struggle a little bit through the season but, not enough to take him out! russell did not get alot of help from his receivers with alot of his passes dropped by (wr's) and that can also make a (qb) look bad. yeah, i saw the incompletes. but i also saw the dropped passes and i also saw russell start to pick up his momentum. garcia will help alot but will still be the backup throughout the season.

no question its Russell. Here is part of the problem with Garcia...He doesn't have the arm to utilize the speed of our WR's...good on short passes but not on long. We need Russell to step up. Garcia was a good choice as a back up because he has the experience and know how...but we need to build JRuss...and starting Garcia would only cripple the process....JRuss can learn leadership from Garcia...but the throwing styles are vastly different.
