 Cable, Haslett have big challenges, high hopes
posted 8 years ago

Haslett takes his 0-4 team to Washington (4-1), winners of four straight. Cable leads his 1-3 crew into New Orleans (2-3), a team gasping for air after its Monday night dud against Minnesota. Cable and Haslett on Sunday debut as interim coaches in their first step to erase the "interim" label. Cable was elevated from Raiders offensive line coach to replace fired Lane Kiffin. Haslett was elevated from Rams defensive coordinator to replace fired Scott Linehan.Both the Raiders and Rams are dangerous opponents this weekend.Both coaches used bye weeks that provided extra preparation. Both have let a cleansing of sorts unfold in their locker rooms. Both have commanded the attention of their players. Both have tried to renew confidence and instill a rest-of-the-season-is-all-that-matters, 12-game mantra. Both lead teams that for the first time this season are not dealing with a head coach/front office disconnect or a constant clock-ticking watch on when -- not if -- their head coaches would be fired. It is hard enough to win the games on the field each week in the NFL. Mix in the combustion of internal franchise games and little wonder both teams are a combined 1-7. For the first time this season, the Raiders and Rams can focus on one thing only -- winning a football game. That is refreshing. That gives us a chance to see the best of exactly what are the Raiders and Rams.
