Stanford Routt was happy to have won the job as the starting left cornerback over Chris Johnson (the Raiders’ Chris Johnson) but repeated his preseason thoughts that he really has no idea what Cable is talking about with regard to a new attitude.
“I think my mind is maybe a little more clear, not so much BS going on mentally,” Routt said. “But I really can’t put a finger on what you’re asking. Everything stayed the same. I’m still the same guy. I still study the same. I eat the same foods. I’m the same.”,
I don’t like the attitude, Route wasn’t worth a dime let alone a nickel coverage in the past, so I really hope something is different.
John Madden:They've got a ways to go. He was playing the game without a full deck. To be honest, they don’t have enough players. The cupboard was pretty bare. It would have been tough to do much more than what they did. If he’s going to do well, they gotta get a lot more … some teams need a quarterback or a running back, or a pass rusher … . The Raiders need a whole barrel of guys!
