11.28: CHI/OAK postgame -- Kate and Paul
Well hello Raiders fans Kate -- and your Raiders insider Paul Gutierrez bringing you this inside exclusive look at what happened in the Raiders Bears game exclusively on CSN California dot com. And let's start went. The reason why the Raiders -- one of the best kicking tandem in the lead at least that's what I look like out on the field today we'll talk like learning can't get that first. Why did you see genachowski -- players -- after the game. Well you -- record setting performance by some as genachowski six field goals in a single game he would shared the record before it three times previously kicked five and game Jeff Jaeger did for the 1994 LA Raiders. So he was there office that you saw that offense get down into the red zone and then and then slow up in that their defense stiffened up and and they have to do something and end up. Early on in the year you could have made a case. That's the best genachowski was the raiders' most viable player -- he got hurt. And now you showed exactly showed exactly what he's made heaven and how important is this. And you mentioned that airs its stingy defense and that. I asked actually Louis Murphy got that today I said there are -- that -- some on on offense and you get -- and I think it was good maybe DHB check coming in his online on an out. And that. I was asking him about you know it was just the evidence as stingy defense we've seen there are. Are -- things the Raiders need to be doing out there and I I think until it at -- that they were saying you know there are some plays we need to be making. Would you agree that yes and and besides that you had to remember how many explosive guys that they were missing out there there's still no Democrat still no Jacoby Ford. No Dinara is more there's three starters right there no Taiwan Jones -- to give you -- change of pace back who's probably the fastest guy on the team so he was gonna be a slug it out. Muck and -- type of game and in those of the games and Michael Bush you see him show up. Late in the third quarter early in the fourth quarter. And you know we've been. -- in this moment CSN California dot com for awhile is the Raiders had not scored in the fourth quarter since October ninth at Houston with ten minutes to go on what else. Sebastian Janikowski field goal. So the fact they got in their -- I asked us that was news to you about it. And he should get like a huge weight was off the shoulders not only because of that streak but because all they can do up to that point in this game. -- was kicked a field. Yeah I think a big sigh of relief after -- you felt that energy from the players and also feeling the energy and the sixth sellout here at the coliseum that every game sold out. I think at the end zone realizing hey this Raiders team that each of these special. But one thing I think you've got interesting say in the locker room is. The players know that fate is in there on hand and really for the taking what did you hurt and then really going after the AFC west title. Well that's that's their goal and that's always been angle but I think the best way to put it is that this year it's actually a realistic goal so I talked to -- -- -- a little bit after the game. And now he's -- you know last year they got a sense that of what they could potentially do. This year it's there for the taking and if they just keep handling their business and it's it's theirs they're gonna go to the playoffs. But on the other side of that coin is. There -- interested in what's happening in the rest of the division -- a couple guys who like he -- game. And the thing about Tim Tebow and this is evil magic. So to speak and that the taken notice of what's going on in and where they are in the division as they should bit but to a man I'll save themselves that. They need to handle what's going on in their own locker room first and then it's gonna -- soften them. And living there handily -- playing more discipline -- there the flag and they learn not flying out and they weren't last week in Minnesota. And I asked from the players and -- that case you kind of issued at the challenge don't go doing playing controlled. And of course we heard what was that -- officials throughout the week and that technique but what evidence out on the field did you see and the Raiders playing a little bit hard time at Oakmont. Boy the evidence was the fact there was no evidence of the flags flying especially after Minnesota last week. He wondered come into this game where the referees gonna take offense to hue Jackson calling them out basically calling up their Brothers last week. That and you also wonder was it gonna work against them and things come flying even more. And they they seem to play really clean game and it was just kind of strange the beginning of the game where you saw the flags are flying the -- Chicago. That is correct and we talked about the basket -- Shane Lechler also record records say breaking his own record the -- that at the season opener. In Denver but Shane -- eighty yard punt which is key when you have Hester in the backfield and never kind of waiting to see would be -- if and I did get -- contact is dying and kicking tandem who lived the guy. Who invest in it -- and and and -- we see evidence that Al Davis and really believing -- them again and he's a.
