He did? Wow...I thought Mark would block it after Al couldn't stand him personally. Guess Mark is letting Chucky run the joint in Alameda. Shit hire Pete Rozelle's corpse as assistant coach.

Should have just kept Tice. I don't care for Cable's zone bullshit.

No way man. Cable will actually tell the players to fuck off if they get out of line. Plus Cable runs both Zone and Power schemes. It's really whatever Gruden wants.

Tice was in on the promotion of Downing as well as Del Rio and the Musgrave firing. Downing was Tice protégé and he and Del Rio gave a bullshit story to Mark why Musgrave needs to go and Downing promoted. I think Mark wanted Jack and his staff out months ago because their sneaky motherfuckers and ruined the offense with the Musgrave firing.

I'm with this guy. And my concerns aren't just about Tom Cable. Color me unimpressed as hell with this new staff.

Chucky’s back. Unfortunately, so is Reggie. And Olson. HOW do these people continue to survive their own abject failure??

Cable was a damn good coach when he had the talent in Seattle. Then they traded away Unger and signed practice squad guys....kinda like our linebacker situation. You can't win with free agent type guys that didn't even get drafted. Cable will be fine, question is does this mean Lynch will be back? I'm not so sure Gruden could put up with all his drama, he may lose respect if Lynch thnks he can get away with shit.....amd tries to in training camp.

Might as well draft one in the second round, assuming Saquan Barkley doesn't fall. I'd be more than happy with Sony Michel in round 2.
