12.12: Hue Jackson Press Conference Pt. 2
Jackson says McFadden does not need surgery and analyzes Richard Seymour's performance against the Packers.
-- -- Friday at Carolina as some have been told he has a mid foot missed which franc which is just like -- is French -- Q have you -- this is the site is really one of semi no one can require some of game required surgery. -- can require you know and for you to be out several several weeks so I think -- -- -- that same -- -- I just think how you describe it. Based on one is when you say this trade really mean surgical. You know you gotta go and fix it right away in order to get it -- to heal properly I think that's why when people hear that term I think you're going to actually that's what -- -- Nine that he does not need surgery that much -- do. He national right that Darren McFadden does and he's. Coach of in this game Richard Seymour rather clean stat sheet nothing you know those tackles and was he getting double teamed is he hurt. Just I don't know -- play well there's like it was getting double teamed up. Yeah all of our defense allowed -- to double team I mean those are some big ugly so they get double team they get gravity pulling you -- there thing. I mean he didn't have any place he's been making plays last night in -- first -- he got to play back. I mean our whole difference of about our whole team has played so it's not just Richard Seymour I mean it's. There's ten other guys on defense and then -- -- -- -- an office there's another level special teams and need to put about. And then what we have over the last couple weeks. You you have said that you thought that the the problems that you have hadn't with the run defense and penalties so. Could be fixed by the end of this year -- haven't -- only exclusive. I entering what we settlement today did you guys can drill me. At that time not guys who work and and let I'm just as disappoint isn't about. I said those things and I believe in them heart. And I believe that we will and we have not. And I'm not running from that we have not consistently played on defense the way I envision our defensive football team playing. We have not. Fixed date in the he -- the issue. That is in my opinion hurt this team tremendously. I've I continue to being games and things happen and I've never seen before in not raised a flag last night totally replay Booth and work. So the guy ran out of bounds I know it was out of bounds there's not they can do about it. Say you improbably on them destroying it here but the bottom line is I got to put the ball where it is because I cannot verify. Had a guy around -- I've never heard of that before but that's still a guy who's you know. But ID yeah we we got some work to do here in them. I've always said that not all run from that in I think everybody thinks is he put -- on and do it and it just goes away is discarded it takes time. It takes time and then we'll work and -- and sometimes you gotta you got a changeup you know we'll change some things up so we get this thing back. Mark up the penalty on you wanna forward Aaron under you play where he got hit and came out of hand. And then Cameron -- throughout all because of personal file. The plight in essence it. That's what you -- face Davidson game is that pass and anything there was not yeah that's what I said too but it was in their opinions. It is a personal -- during a play. So it is tacked on. To the end of whoever gets the ball so as a defense ability so they get half the distance they want from the eight yard line to the four -- And yes I did -- fit but that's the pastoral. That is the -- When you are what you are about defense you limited him and his staff -- -- kind of on -- plane kind of thing or do you. Scheme with him during the week how important. I'm chuck tells me exactly what we're doing. You know in and how we're trying to do it I like to know I am an idea of how we're gonna attack a -- -- football team obviously I trust our coaches. I don't I don't -- wouldn't say we better do this and that to -- offer suggestions outside. Based on who we're playing. But for the most part our defensive coaches you know they they they get after it with those guys and trying to put in our game plan and get it done. We need to. Give back. -- everywhere we are on this football team defensively. Offensively and special teams on the island disappear and hammered a defense I don't do that it's a it's a definitely an issue that we need to get better -- just like when you get their offense I mean. It turned the ball like that thank you when the game like that on the road it's not lineup. And I would I get better special team that has to make a play on on a fake and make them play. I mean because we have -- making those plays I mean some Ellison and -- last I just wasn't our night that's how it works I mean this is the National Football League the best of the best. And the last two weeks we have fallen short but we get another go at this time we get three more -- that this thing earn a fourth so we -- Detroit this week and that's what we'll focus. Yeah sure and injured players from yesterday and anybody who you'll we will. House has it Jazz. We'll know more and more as we go through and I think it'll be okay. John Henderson and obviously -- -- -- -- had Danny had in me you know he has a sore knee so we'll see where John is as we move to -- Darrius Heyward-Bey I think will be fine. I think his was a -- and I think as we go to we wouldn't look at all by himself I think and Sammy. -- -- -- Hasn't shoulders so I think he'll be OK to Sammy is always probably command and played so is there is -- -- Chad's Q so. I we'll get these guys back -- him grow up. Michael -- I love her hamstring you know in will now be -- and see where he is as we go. Huge reason we've prepared this. More and more particular your explosive guy who hasn't this become apparent that changed. -- realize you'll know those guys they understand the Pistons player difference well against you. What kind of challenges and pulls for you have talent and posts from when you know and play knowing that -- -- it's going to be different -- Yeah yeah elected -- war I -- what you wants war you know you know and so. I as I said I think it says here we -- maybe Jewish you can probably get away with them for a couple weeks. You know and fooled people before they realize what you really -- in now. Then what you have to do is go back and do something to give yourself the best chance to win. What I do know is you guys what you do. Whatever school you come up with you cannot turn the football. You just can't do it. And that's what -- got to quit being so he can illegal procedures kept holding calls and he can't terrible so I can't beat yourself first. Before the other team lives up to defeat you ain't so. I think that's where his starts. I feel very comfortable where our office of coaches and myself will come up with something to give us some points and give us opportunity school. What we have to do is make sure that that chemistry part of it because had so many guys have been taken out you know of the equation. From week to week or either door in the game you know somebody goes -- for -- second and they're gone you know you plug in people and that you keep that rhythm for the quarterback or for the football for the offensive unit that you have. And that's the biggest challenge the rest of -- I think we'll figure it out but we'll figure this out to enough of -- comfortable. Person. Pretty clearly in the -- -- -- -- -- from a multiple marriages and cohesive and now you know you were both guys trying to get across to him that you don't have to try it. Compensate for what you know -- Immediately just say you tell them that. And that's what I've done I mean and I think he understands that I mean it's natural and normal for a guy in his situation to say OK I am -- make this happen. You know and that that's that's normally I get. But he can't be normal in this situation because you can't put your your team in harm's way. By any stretch of the imagination so them was gonna take some great discipline on his part he hasn't and -- -- to do it. And now I feel I feel very comfortable with conversation me and him had that he'll do. Ours is a good player and he's done some good thing he threw some huge balls for us last night make some plays it was chance that some situations last night so. But that there's no problem there. The problem is when you get opportunities to sometime guessing uncle in this league and his. When you go away you take a sack Mika and sometimes that's hard when -- competitive. As he has because you're so used to winning and making things happen which ran off so. What will go through that process and will continue to get better at it and he's doing a fabulous job in my opinion what we gotta do is give back to playing winning football. It was very consistent we have spurts. You know in their office would like it that often -- you know -- went down in the first. But five plays on six when he turned over in March and Barney -- those -- the things to me that are better. -- you know that we need to fix that -- will and I feel very comfortable that. Why hasn't Michael Bush. Ineffective the last. Three weeks basically how -- you put -- how do you regard your offensive line play is not the offensive line that is what money you say that they won't we won't know would -- -- nobody there and who else is going back to winning. You design ways to make sure that you get them slowed down you know and then what you do you count. Counterpunch him over here when you think they get you over there and he's right back to what we're talking about turn overs then you can't turn over. No they don't stack on a particular area to make sure that Michael can get going and that means that we someplace else you go. Scratch from over there have been on so you make a mistake then it magnified so you know sort of I think what Michael Bush is not doing his party on this park. Capitalize on -- -- and the date those guys blocked pretty well last night. I mean from a pass protection standpoint I mean 52 didn't have the normal game he -- you know and I need and have the normal game. What we gotta do is be consistent and not hurt ourselves with turnovers and penalties so that we can stay consistent. Throughout football game and give Michael Bush those opportunities. You are outside receivers and tight ends those opportunities when they can make this place. And -- explanation for a embarrasses Rose story yesterday's been. Made strides the -- -- the fact that. But those things happen I mean he angle into the chase for the first got dropped the ball this year I think we know that he's made some big plays this year too so yeah I mean. There was some things that. -- cropped up last night again you know and will award dress him and keep moving forward but I'm not going to let that shadow. You know overshadow the good that he's done this year -- to come back and be consistent. And catch the ball consistently as he's shown that this year I think sometimes when -- in those kind of games people start pressing you know a little bit. All around you know in and that's what I gotta get the team understand. But as for just played -- -- football will be fun to play one snap at a time and play as hard you can't and everything else would take him so. But how did you wind up with twelve days on the field during during Olson's touchdown and it was it was poor execution by -- coaches period. There there are no other excuse. Mean that's embarrassing should happen and happen and that's who it is that's that's -- on our park we ended on.
