Interim head coach Tom Cable has slowly taken a bigger role in the offense which culminated with him being the primary play-caller during Sunday's 17-6 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
That job belonged to offensive coordinator Greg Knapp.
Cable's last job running an offense was when he was offensive coordinator at UCLA (2004-05).
Here are some key averages from his time in charge of the Bruins' offense, a span of 24 games.
*172.8 rushing yards (39 TDs)
*247.7 passing yards (56 TDs)
Here's some of what Cable had at UCLA:
*One of the best running backs in the nation in Maurice Drew (now going by Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jacksonville Jaguars)
*A star tight end in Marcedes Lewis (also of the Jaguars)
*The same quarterback for two seasons (Drew Olson)
Right now, Cable's most explosive running back, Darren McFadden, is hobbled.
His tight end, Zach Miller has elite skills. But those skills are wasted half the time because he has to pass block to help out the tackles.
Cable's starting quarterback, JaMarcus Russell is hurting. So is Russell's backup, Andrew Walter.
How about Marques Tuiasosopo at quarterback?
Here's what Cable is trying to overcome.
*Since taking over, the Raiders have managed seven points a game.
*In three of four losses, the Raiders' points were the lowest or tied for the lowest that team had allowed all season (Carolina shut out Kansas City).
