07:04 AM ET 10.05 | The guess here is that Raiders boss Al Davis is, uh, restless. Unlikely: Davis is blaming himself for the team's horrendous start and the wretched output of his three massively compensated young players: JaMarcus Russell, Darren McFadden and Darrius Heyward-Bey. More likely: Davis is willing to spread the blame and is pondering changes. Such as: New coach? Tom Cable is 5-11, and he's the coordinator and play-caller for an offense that Sunday averaged about half as many yards per play as the Texans. Cable is a good soldier, but the Raiders are 25-75 in their last 100 games. Though Cable can't get the blame for all that ineptitude, Davis can fire only one head coach at a time. Best guess, Cable survives at least until his team's bye week, after Game 8.
