Oakland Raiders: Open QB Competition? Just Another Lie from Tom Cable

Lately there are alot of Raider fans who choose to blindly support a no name QB.

In support for that no name sorry excuse for an NFL QB they cling to anything that gives that QB any hope of starting. Including an empty comment by Tom Cable.

Then Cable said the players who give us the best chance to win will start. He then proceeded to start two rookie wide-receivers, including Darius Heyward-Bey for the first 10 weeks of the season.

Then he covered up that lie with another, stating that X, Y, and...
