5.2: Tom Cable Press Conference, RAW
Raiders Head Coach Tom Cable met with reporters after mini-camp practice on Sunday in Alameda.
We also posted. When sexuality Kentucky Derby putter. Was what you want. I don't remember Jose jockeying for the first time that's been anyway three times and more years that's. But don't let us respect that's good relief. We're here yeah. -- Program. It -- You you know he'll do what's best. We'll get this worked -- so. What this semester he gifted guys out there at the end of. I think talk about what the players moving forward and you know small start back in the offseason program and then. On May eighteenth we'll start with the old kids and we'll have four weeks about. Just trying to get an idea about what those rules and -- -- but more situational football. And you know really just staying the course now there have been a lot of work it was obviously a productive mini camp and yet there's a lot of work to do. Out of all of the rookies yeah. Which -- ones that aren't going to be allowed to be here because -- plus. The idea of large percentage you know we we may have guys not be here for a day or two but it doesn't. I think maybe only warmed. At the most maybe two of the most that are gonna have. Any significant loss of time. Put a couple of them whom missed the first day or two just because of -- wouldn't be exactly. And yes it was real tight. -- know we can't I think one of the things. Probably most pleased about last year we came out mini camp -- some hamstring issues and some holes and strange things like that we'll -- There -- those things to shoot a little bit cramping but that was normal normal I think just the fact that they haven't done football related stuff for quite a while. And -- in the -- -- practices in the did you elect some younger -- typically only and and being mandatory Q what's the rationale behind just at one. Well I think this the number one issue is sticking your team prepared for fall camp. And so. You have the opportunity to have him here for mini camp and alum here for OT if we use all those things. I think -- for their work they athletes' training analyst. More important. Some of the younger guys showing up there. Yeah and whether brown and walker captaincy. I am very happy and I think we. You know come make him. Like and the people we drafted in the people who signed undrafted. Some -- showed up you know so we'll see we'll see how they handle the next. There if there was one area. You really want -- -- tight. Ones and seem like it was a while he talked to all grown ups Steelers preview and on the edge or abnormal things ball security. And at the same time -- we're emphasizing the defense try to get particularly. It's never going to be completely satisfied with this issue but. Offensively that's way way too much and defensively still -- get more. Since the -- there was -- but he's not a drop but I can't think -- remain tied for your defenders got it out. You know after it was secure. -- I think secured a ball you know protection secure that's what I saw it come on a couple times what people took was while afterwards it was pretty good. Record -- Thank you know he's. Good runner. He's a halfback. Not a -- back side visas -- excellent special teams player. The experience in this league so we are very aware -- and playing against those guys. You know she would he can do it's electric stuff apparently. I I like a lot of things. Fumble brought him in. You know we'll see you reduced when. How would you grade Campbell -- Did I give us a B plus. Again I would be more satisfied if there's less balls in the ground and and hit the same time the defense particularly if you were shall. Performed the -- but -- that is that everything else and like I like what we thought we had installed. The work. Effort was very good until I was very good little. You see. Improvement Campbell for breakfast -- -- -- as you've been through so many systems becoming. I think a little of all from the saw him when improve becoming joked no don't call them. He has been exposed enough I think that's what carried into the camp but honestly because. He's he's not been in this particular system. Two degree were doing so. He's he's got some catching up to do what he's certainly adapted pretty quick. And -- -- seemed to play with the matchup there on every single player can get him. Some innocent guys did you see -- from him in the -- citizens of whistle goes you that this guy's gonna get after it I think. I think so minutes more things and film shows motor. You know mr. so relentless play. Time after time I think it's important. He's his -- is where you -- you went after additional free agent. I think pool tennis and look at this whole thing after the next few days and decide you know -- Beat Seymour situations it was a pretty -- he's gonna be here regardless of the French Riders. But you're pretty confident and longer. You know I'm I'm hoping it is an -- they're both sides over so I think that's the most important thing but surely you know. And hopefully you know things to get done and from -- will be happy about it. -- pieces to the coaches that resources. Well I think good opening you guys know my -- mr. luster of this team for the Super Bowl and won a Super Bowl and New York with the Giants. So Mike have had a long history with the Calgary. I like you know he coaches the way I like to coach in describing the way out of every day and I think those guys are. You know or respondent notes and some of -- for that given Ross students. A lot of experience played so. I think that toughness and secondary this season. You know so I'm I'm comfortable that we get some important control guys that. I felt pretty good consumer help with the special teams assistant job so -- -- couldn't. It's just as you move in there. OTA's recruiting conditioning you see all the guys that work -- out other than Gradkowski you know they're free to. Love -- Miller's yeah I think we're closer closer -- time and we just want to be cautious does this work. Workload was going to be quite a business that you get all solved condition -- practices so. Just wanna be smart with it and I think over the controls from. But -- latitude just were positive and college -- Today it. Forward. Yeah it should be you know we we have a chance to be a better football team and -- take the next step which you talked about it the end here. -- going to be difficult step but. It's one that we're all kind of on the same page and into the -- so we should be excited that we have changed. -- -- -- -- But I think you know a lot of work there we've got some nice pieces stood concede. You know I would think it fits together that's an area that. You need to add to or not. You know decide that in the next few days. -- it. That out. Too many -- -- sit here and give you want to I think there's a bunch of guys diminished job on the scoreboard. About everything you can get things you mentioned Alex Daniels gets today. Did any of the others and you kind of -- kind of. You know I mentioned offensive lineman Smith. I mentioned that kid from her. From Memphis so I like a number of those guys I think we did good and signing. Casual undrafted. -- -- -- -- Here that's you know -- I think both those guys are in Campbell so I'm anxious to have. The more work they do on the -- ago the question is how fast -- ago. And hopefully can come out all but -- fans. If they've got a good frame and they can pick of the skill. But really the only thing goes for virtual. -- -- Brett thank you thanks thanks thanks don't.
