    Still haven't decided on your costume or plans for Halloween?

    Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable is strongly urging you to consider a Darth Vader, Grim Reaper, or spiked shoulder pads get-up and coming on down the Raiders-Seahawks contest at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on Halloween at 1:15 p.m.

    Cable called upon Raider Nation by name to please help the Raiders' turnaround effort by doing them a solid and supporting them against the Seahawks by creating a louder and less-empty Black Hole than what they're currently used to.

    "Raider Nation, hear me, I hope you get this, we need you in those stands supporting us," Cable told the Oakland Tribune. "We need to have a great twelfth man from here on in because we’re doing our part and it’s coming together."

    The Raiders will go for their second consecutive win Sunday against the Seahawks in a Coliseum that will not be sold out, and the game will not be televised locally in the Bay Area.

    If Tom Cable's words are not enough motivation for you, Raiders fans, then consider this -- if you don't attend Raiders-Seahawks at the Coliseum on Sunday afternoon, then you will be stuck watching Randy Moss.
