Question of the week: Who the fuck is Tom Cable?


Thomas Lee Cable, Jr, (born 1964)  was the offensive line coach in 2006 for the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons under head coach Jim L. Mora, who was dismissed at the end of the season. Cable was the Offensive coordinator for the UCLA Bruins for two seasons (2004-2005) under head coach Karl Dorrell.


Tom Cable was the head coach at the University of Idaho, his alma mater, from 2000-2003. He compiled a record of 11-35 (.239) in four seasons before being replaced by Nick Holt. This is why Al Davis brought him in. 11-35 fits right into Davis’s fucking gameplan.

Cable played on the offensive line for the Idaho Vandals for head coaches Dennis Erickson and Keith Gilbertson, blocking for Scott Linehan. The Linehan connection means a lot these days. I mean, look at Linehan now!

I don’t know what else to say. Tom Cable is the new head coach for the Raiders.

Somehow Al Davis found someone that is LESS qualified than Kiffin. Nice work.

And here is a picture because I know you can’t wait for another 2 weeks!
