11.17: Raiders practice -- Chuck Bresnahan
The Raiders defensive coordinator looks ahead to the Vikings in Week 11.
That was easily. And I was Peterson and under. Yeah there's there's this there's no question and don't you know don't underestimate the talent overall this offensive unit. But you know Adrian is the guy and you hear every week that I come -- yours is you know the first and foremost goal is to stop the run and you know there's really two words that describe what we've got to do all day for sixty minutes and that's gang tackle. You know you -- you appeared to one guy can't be eleven. But if you put one guy on him. You're not gonna win many times you've got to get past the ball and you know again it's it's it's a challenge I mean this is a challenge to go out and play -- back like this. You know we look at it no different -- get to go up against Foster went down to. Houston and I know this this is a great challenge for the defense and animals you'll -- on Sunday. Mixed results in your losses. -- a lot of current ones what was the difference between. And really isolate that too well when we've lost the rushing yardage is better real real and if that's what you say they're rushing yardage yet. But it's you again discipline attention to detail. If you take for example most recent with the Denver. And when you play the option that's assignment football and when you miss an assignment that that -- terms from a two or three yard gain into -- when he you know 122032. Yard game like what happened so I give attention to detail discipline. And more so than ever with these guys you have to gang tackle because this is this is an exceptional running back. You know we get the -- or the fortunate the good fortune of having to go against Darren McFadden and Michael Bush. All year so you know this is the type of guy that did they prepare us for. Although this guy really really has some availability and so elusive this tool that it is -- -- And not -- -- I think it does it really does you know I don't I would tell you what Taiwan Jones preparing us for quick facts and everything. He's given us is good looks to win when we get to the game on Sunday we have trouble against the run and hasn't because we haven't gotten that look are we that's my point. And you know we didn't have the offseason we have training camp to go against Michael and and there are and then -- would there be -- banged up a little bit that hurt us but again. Those guys give you an opportunity to at least. Face a a top -- back each and every day and that's not the case in all these teams around the league so we're fortunate that. Especially every. It really. Well. You know that. It would put the pressure or the Challenge Tour upfront guys thoughtful. Because we felt like against -- -- we disguised our coverage and play cover two approach against him we would have success and by that extra. You know half second for all our defense line to get to the quarterback. And they stepped up for the challenge I mean with with the pressure that they put on the four man pressure we have to call me -- and that to me. Is an ideal game plan what do you like to pressure not if you can get there with four and cover. That's the best way to go because again we had the opportunity make a couple pass breakups. Get our hands on a couple balls you'd like to see us finish the plays in the Lito Sheppard plays -- in -- example. But again that the fact that we were able to play fast play with a vision on the quarterback that helped us big time getting off the ball I mean get off the field. It. It's huge I mean it's huge you know we talk all year long about about having that opportunity is the defense to have the last drive. And when you have a situation like what happened in Buffalo. You don't worry -- you have the opportunity couple times to get off the field and again missed interception to -- turnovers. You know give them another shot and you lose the game it was definitely good for us to be able to step up they get those opportunities in game be successful big confidence. Nobody secret. It. It's. There was a lot of good things and then you can again. Don't know what. I'd probably initially it was a little bit of motivation but again they know this is a business and each one of those guys that you know is his own company. And they're gonna take care of that company the best they can to provide for themselves and their family but also -- to keep their bodies and shape the whole thing to prepare. And to perform on the field where they can earn those type of opportunities to block the free agent market they make themselves. You know bigger company but you know to me I think that. Is an initial. Maybe motivational factor but once it gets said -- done what you get those. The 53 man roster these guys gel together and I think it's just trying to get that -- consistent cohesive. And they work towards that -- though. Extra stuff outside. Yeah. Eagle Lito brings you don't veteran leadership he brings veteran experience to the field. And you know literally saw he came in and he steps on the field and it's not like he misses -- -- There's things that he's gonna get better at technique wise and understanding exactly how he fits in our system but there's a guy with. Experience that you can put on the field and really challenge him and not have to pull the reins back you can let him go in and you know he he stepped up and and did his job in the game and works -- have. It. Things so much. -- I'll tell you. You know end and Darryl Blackstock and yeah I can't put the loss to them brought their blocks. Beers you have a star Mike linebacker and when you miss that start Mike linebacker you -- next man up and Darryl did that but again it did not have. Roll out there was you. And my point to row. It is he has continually gotten better as the year's gone on and when he came into this week. He challenged team in the locker room challenged our defense in the meeting room during the week. And he stepped it became the leader of the defense and that's the type of stuff that he has to do is provide that leadership when he's on the field so it's been huge to get him back. It's the people on the outside and wondered where is the we weren't. And it. -- Much much more so because -- help than anything else you know if you remember back at the beginning of training camp we're going through the beginning of pre season. He was doing some things really really well. And then also they did that he's got picked up here and there and that's really bad the thing that set him back a little bit -- when he's healthy he's ready to go. He's a true factor in the middle we got a -- we got to get into that every week. -- Oh -- before bill before the San Diego for the San Diego and he really stepped up as a leader in the room and took it upon himself that he's back. He's got it you know he's got to take control the rains it really -- defense in the direction we wanted to go. Good. Yeah.
