From MercuryNews.com:

All signs point to the Raiders joining a growing contingent that is severing ties with Cable these days and seeking a different connection.

In the Raiders' case, that means parting ways with coach Tom Cable and hitching their floundering franchise to another coach who has a fresh set of ideas and the patience to put up with quarterback JaMarcus Russell.

Managing general partner Al Davis has yet to weigh in publicly on the matter.

However, several people close to Davis say he is inclined to fire Cable and hire a new coach for the sixth time since Jon Gruden was jettisoned after the 2001 season.

Sunday's regular-season finale 21-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens did little to bolster Cable's case for a second full season — he replaced the fired Lane Kiffin four games into the 2008 season.
The Raiders lost at home for the sixth time, allowed a handful of big plays and reached the 11-loss mark for the seventh straight season.
