Raiders coach Tom Cable said he never considered taking Jamarcus Russell out of the game and wouldn’t speculate about replacing him in the future if the quarterback continues to struggle.
“I just feel like we have to keep moving forward, trying to figure out what is going to help him be at his best,” Cable said.
Cable took the blame for Russell’s first interception, having him throw the ball out of his own end zone.
“I thought we could get them in a single-high safety and they bailed out to a two and Darrius fell down on that,” Cable said. “The bottom line is I could have called a better play.”
Former Raider Renaldo Hill intercepted that one. The second pick, to Andre Goodman, “was just an overthrow.”
