8.8: Raiders training camp -- Hue Jackson
Coach Jackson likes what he saw from DHB and wants to make sure he keeps the guys healthy.
Ever want to Obama's is okay the last -- I -- when you lose a bet you gotta pay up so. Michael Bennett with the issues of Michael this special so when you lose you pay up so in my database outside the worm. In the story that's it I cannot tell you yeah. Yeah I -- I tell you that I will that tell you. But embryo was there was a forward that I lost one issues it's the only time any -- I won't ever have -- -- shoes. That's it they're done. Well yeah. Yeah okay. -- big guys a lot of but what we got today. Yeah it offers absolutely did -- go home and patty in the and I've let a guy who is getting ready you know only did some good they caught some balls. Get back in the swing of it -- get that back got. There another pair of veteran lanes. He looked good I mean obviously I was glad to see it production. Quarterbacks get back in -- waiting and obviously that's the most important -- just didn't chemistry but with the quarterbacks he's happened so he's back out there goal and we're glad he's there. I sure think so I hope so I mean besides their Jets and -- and I -- well think again. Well I can't make sure exactly. What it is we don't always make sure he's fine but -- -- -- every healthy body out there Thursday night that we can. Tomorrow evening game yeah yeah. Yeah absolutely you wanna go to practice and then just see where player is an excess fresh after coming off -- something but I think I don't anticipate anything I think we've been very. Cautious wouldn't make sure that He was back healthy and and what we've seen out there is a player's -- to get. -- -- been around -- it. Under today there -- They give you a good football player you can make plays for us we'll try to find a place where -- but obviously there's that. And group of young men there are fighting for jobs you know we have a some established guys there are some guys that have played but as I told you we -- -- trying to uplift the whole performance of this team so. I want our guys to know and understand this is about before it's more you perform the -- before. The more opportunity gonna do it. Murphy and boom and. Yeah I think it's I don't think again as you guys you see I'm being very overly cautious especially that position doesn't do so much run and do so much running cutting. There's a lot that goes on that receiver position so I'm just gonna. Take it day by day with these guys make sure they are seeing what they are again hopefully healthy football players out here because that timing and rhythm of our offense and being with the quarterback He can't do it halfway yet they -- full speed or we should put out there. Is going great I mean this is good as it can be. Again I mean and I know there's been a comment that I made a long time ago at the draft but as I told you at that time we really necessary -- entertaining. Now we brought -- Sammy back and we won't give him an opportunity. By no way whatever happens on third and I didn't mean it passed -- you know so I mean it just means that's what we start we all know we gotta start someplace. You know -- football team when it's all said and done. When we give you played them bird that's when I'm concerned about putting the best football team opted not do we need to get five guys as we move forward to play together. That's going to be together so they can learn to where -- each other no question but. Thursday night is our first dress rehearsal. And I have a we start that game got me that's where it goes for the right reasons -- union. Sponsor. -- you have some guys. How much do you think. We have some guys that are fairly except this but I mean I haven't determined yet exactly how much ago play and -- got -- I. You know whatever that is again I'm going to be very cautious when our football team. I want it there's things I need to see problem they know exactly what is looking for that temple. The attitude of how we play the speed at which He plays -- that's what I'm looking to get out of football team on Thursday night obviously we want to get -- win. You know because -- keeping score like the way as just the way it is and so. Our teams about their play where it was supposed to play as Raiders and keep building on that. There's no way these on this roster this time. They like -- you need to do with comments made -- old -- I don't have a guy like that at this point you know. They have some guys that are injured right now you know maybe I would consider doing that -- but. They're injured so they're out anyway so -- worry about them I'm a more about the guys that are playing we'll stick them out there I mean this game. Our fans are -- game and they wanna see these players I think -- players wanna see them and I think he's -- wanna see another team. You know I think they're -- line up against each other and now that's what the pro football's all about -- just -- have a -- test -- another team for a bit when people goals that you place. Well we will play -- there's a down our roster that can play we'll play how much we'll play tomorrow determinant as. Your first year as a coach how do you prepare for pre season. -- class rumor as much -- to somewhat. Me as a little bit about you got to go out do what you do but also -- this a scheme adjustment for us we need to make sure that we understand that I want to get our chance our teams gives me the best opportunity to have success. I mean when I just walking out there it looked like walking out there with a purpose I want our guys to get used to when we step. I don't feel between -- -- were playing to win you know and I know everybody is trying to evaluate some people use it for evaluation and I do too we all that's part of it. But it's also think about winning you know and I want us understand that that we walk out there. Do we we're evaluating what we evaluate with the with the purpose of winning game after all that's happening options now to receive. Is very important to me is -- to them after travels did the familiar environment where -- going to be how to get to the stadium how to do certain things and then be comfortable in Guatemala and from your hands. And play football again I think scheduling for what they did they let us stay home when not traveling quite a bit. In the pre season anyway I think as we go as the Seattle -- -- that's not too bad. So we're we're very excited about our pre seasons. And you. Know there will be no walk -- it -- there and we do will be here before we get. First for the first time this. Might absolutely. Have for this the first time we won't talk to walk it play it do it. A whole nine yards that they will prepare. Byrd who -- -- you appeared first time like. True now He can't that would do it myself and you know nobody prepared me they say we had a game. Get in there but your clothes or go to work. And that's kind of what I told him and -- hear the stories of -- from his defense coordinator but sometime I want guys that took to fight through it and -- I mean just like to play. Play got to go to the game and understand how to get there how to be on time -- put that we'll formal. Don't worry about -- story about playing time and go out there and play well we got some young coaches that is why we you know. And will create an environment -- talked a little bit but you can't prepare anybody for that you've got to go through you know and I went through it. I'm kind of laughing about it now did you set an -- for them guys to go through a little bit because. -- -- -- -- -- -- Via rock for a moment and has been so blessed that He is a coach he's coach rod Woodson on this football team and I'm so lucky to have him. He's on a great job with -- Steve was about I see our guys making more attempt to make more plays on the ball seeing the ball hole. Attempting to make plays down the field balls in the air we haven't proven that area and that's security him and Kevin Ross and done a great job -- it's. Your first tall -- just throw it updating catches. You know in he's learning our system I think he's getting more comfortable every day it seemed a little bit better. And that's good for us you know the more. I think she works at it when she does and does it very well the better he's going to get so. He is going to be an asset to our football team. He can catch it He can block I think He likes the things that we're doing with him now as we move forward we'll add more to his plate as we get to see him perform and -- Miles -- seen. Yes He would have been. And how will be upstairs you'll be my -- there and -- be on the field and I'll talk to quarterback. Will get it done chuck. -- will be on fellows. -- -- runs playing experience that you more credibility but he's book -- players that. I think -- always -- such an articulate man. Such as stroke strong character. I think what He was a football player. I think everybody knows you know but I think what He is as a man. As what our team and what I try to get our players whose and the -- a first class gentleman. And obviously -- first class -- -- players so you combine those two. You know what what we're trying to accomplish here at that position a position that He played and not only played quite well played as well as anybody. There is in the world tomorrow. Mean obviously that gives you this incredible when you talk to guys about what to do how to do it why you need to do this. -- -- You seem to be. Patient and spent guys played. -- -- Oh and lowered. Is there are some going on over here on the other side in this sense of catch on his best. Yeah well. Tonight is there practice back here that -- -- it isn't that I don't think so is that you know the reason why arrives here. Because he's unbelievable teacher. -- -- -- I can't have. Sixteen people that -- like me. -- -- -- eight personality. I'm a go to -- to me He balances me you know because He has great poise he's a great listener. You know He doesn't react as fast He kind of thinks the room and I think that's had great balance force that and I think that's great trait to have as a defensive back. Obviously got a lot of play -- you have a bad -- He knows how to do that team. But the other thing He has does that fire but it comes out when He needs to come. I'm just like that -- -- that and so He kind of balances me out and I have certain guys like that on this that are able to keep me. -- -- You know and I'm able to get them to go the other way and that's that's to me a great quality to have on the -- -- it's not the same everybody has some different personalities and Rosalind. Coaches will be your first time managing the clock and having your hand on the red flag. Well they've kind of got thought about it all -- it kept me up the other night you know I think go to sleep. Plays guys I was thinking about the red flag as they get about old -- when they kick a field when the puck. I've done about all those things you know what I've also been thinking about that for about five years. So I've played that game in my -- I'm looking forward to it I'm not saying it won't be any bumps and -- that they got got a great staff that I can lean on I think the guys that put the press boxer. Quality quality coaches know exactly what it is we need to do that guys that are on the field and they can help me also would be different yes I'm looking forward to bring and let's do it. You know one guy in the league you'll look reminding you about. Blocked him. Yeah Tommy Jones I mean He practically. Eats sleeps around me Tony -- seven and I trust -- my assistant. And he's really in the football and He likes coaching He likes all the things that football that comes with football. And I've gotten to know him you know obviously over the last six months and I trust them. And he's going to be right there for me but obviously I guess as I said I got some really really good veteran coaches that I can lean on to that I think we'll be that would interest them. Puts you to. Others. The ones who. Turns -- offensively. -- -- -- I mean this is a team sport. And on a bike and show them something that they will help them on defense. He's been open to -- amazing that way our whole staff -- on offense and there's some that He sees that would help us -- -- I mean that's why as a team sport. The best team going gains and the teams that don't wanna take advice from each other to me that's how you lose games so we're in this together we're all pulling in the same way. So we we all the little knowledge of get things done. There were. No nothing to do that and today again once Utley I'll find out more but I think that their status is still that is you know again until guys totally healthy. Elastic enough you know but I think those players are getting closer. And to have an opportunity to get back you know we'll be this week I don't know if it is it is and we'll get back -- -- --
