Together, we win Superbowls. Divided we pick in the top ten, again. The Raider Nation is divided into to separate, very distinct groups. There are those who believe than ONE man amongst 22 will carry an entire Nation to victory. And then there are logical beings(And Al Davis) who understand that one man can not do it alone.
This past season, the man who was chosen to bare the burden of an entire Nation was ousted by a coup of booing fans, biased media, and incompetent irrational coaching in favor of one Bruce Gradkowski. Gradkowski was violently overthrown by an army of Cowboys(or was it Redskins?) Who cares. He sucks.
Amidst the turmoil, man stood tall as the leader who blames everyone else for his fails. That man is named Tom Cable. He was the supreme leader with no responsibility. "It was the QB's fault that Michael Bush rode the Pine." "You know we would have ran the ball better if Jamarcus wasn't QB."
Well now we get to see if the Raiders call better plays now that your dumb ass got benched. Thats right. Jamarcus gets benched after 12 weeks of uninspiring football...Cable gets benched after two years of futility. (20 if you coun't his days a college loser and a wife beater)
Here is the turning point Raider Nation. Here is where we find out who is the REAL culprit for the Raiders lack of offensive production. I say Cable. You say Russell. Al Obviously said Cable(AL Davis: 3 World Championships, You: 0) with his "benching" of Tom "Basic" Cable this off season. It makes me wonder what is left to do for good ol' uncle Tom. Maybe he can concentrate on his woeful offensive line, which was supposed to be his specialty. Who knows? As long as he isn't calling plays, the Raiders have a legitimate chance at winning in 2010, regardless of the QB.
