We hear observers noticed a more confident and in-command Tom Cable when the Raiders opened training camp July 29, and he didn't shy away from raising the bar for his team, saying he expects Oakland to compete for the AFC West title. He may need the team to do so to keep his job beyond 2010. Cable is in the final year of his contract, but he said he feels like the Raiders are truly his team. He spent the first few weeks of the offseason wondering if he would be retained in his current position before Al Davis decided to keep him. Cable went through a difficult stretch last year as Oakland fought to a 5-11 finish while embarrassing allegations about his personal life surfaced, but Raiders players have been unified in their support of the head coach. Cable has been credited with overseeing a positive culture change within the storied but struggling franchise.
