Most head coaches aren't position coaches. That's made Tom Cable's adjustment as interim head coach a little tougher.
"I've come up with a plan that's different than college football to manage the line and then manage the game," Cable said. "That took a couple of games to settle in there."
Cable said he doesn't feel he's had any problems with clock management.
The Raiders have lost the battle for time of possession in each of Cable's games.
Two of those games were blowouts in which the Raiders threw a lot of incomplete passes, which stop the clock.
He admits there are a couple of times (probably in New Orleans) where he should have punted.
That's the one thing he'd work on.
"Primarily, you just handle field position a little better," Cable said.
Fun with numbers
*Justin Fargas is two for two converting first downs on third-and-one situations.
Per the Raiders weekly press release that ties him for first in the NFL at 100 percent conversions on third-and-one.
*The Raiders have held only one team (Kansas City) under 100 rushing yards this season.
*Only one team (New Orleans) has passed for more than 300 yards against the Raiders. Denver (299 yards came close.)
