Tom Cable won't return as Oakland Raiders' head coach

    ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders informed coach Tom Cable on Tuesday that they will not bring him back as coach next season even though he led them to their best record in eight years this season.

    The Raiders announced their decision not to exercise a two-year, $5 million option on Cable's contract for 2011 and '12, two days after wrapping up an 8-8 season that gave Oakland its first non-losing record since winning the 2002 AFC championship.

So if you're keeping score at home, Marvin Lewis takes Cincinnati from the playoffs to the gutter and gets an extension, Gary Kubiak leads the Texans to an even worse record than last year and is retained, and Tom Cable leads the Raiders to their best record in eight years (with a 6-0 division record)...and gets fired.

Goddamn it, Oakland.

Just a bad move on Oakland's part. They finally have a coach who can seemingly corral the insanity of their organization, and they let him walk for nothing. Davis just really loves Hue Jackson.

I like Tom Cable, but I'm not sure this is the worst move ever either. Cable did look like a badass on the Oakland sidelines though.

So Shane Lechler goes off on Cable's firing, calling it a terrible move. Today, the Raiders sign a new punter.

Now, surely, SURELY the Raiders aren't dumb enough to compound their initial mistake by doubling down and cutting arguably the best punter in NFL history, are they?

This is the Raiders we're talking about. The entire organization is insane.

So, with him having the ankle surgery last week, all signs are still pointing to yes:
