Raiders Lo Down -- Looking for positives
Lorenzo Neal and Chris Alvarez search for positives after the Raiders fell flat in their season opener against the Chargers.
And welcome back to another season on the -- -- -- Lorenzo Neal it's not Raiders here are slow welcome back straight. Hey it's good to be back with you Chris hey I can't wait for this season gets started talks put all right let's get to it -- -- touch it but it. Yeah you don't want to bottles its -- cut short but when you watch that game and watch over overnight head right opportunity to process the game. That game was close what people think if you look at the special teams that's nine points the defense were playing on their side of the field on a short field and held held to -- looked towards offense the field goals. That's pretty good. If you -- in the first quarter. You know I think the Raiders -- will move the ball street a fumble the ball never feel gold there he took three -- the point but the Raiders defense stood hail. And it went end up winning and winning that take away margin because they went up three to nothing. After that turnover so we look at the Raiders he said yeah would you like to some sport absolutely long season you played good teams and -- -- toward his fellow -- Philip Rivers and weapons at the Chargers at. But now the Raiders you know they got to go to Miami. To tough you know Miami's coming off a loss it's going to be tough that Raiders haven't traveled well so great is he willing to find a way to get this win this week against Miami -- Miami -- right channel he didn't look to get the rookie that's intelligent Texans is it going to be that just any accidents -- pressure on them or would it tax. We he got he got attacked -- ten and you got to -- This quarterback he's a rookie you can't let this guy and that comfort zone. You gotta zone blitzing in that roll coverage over you know feel blitzing that oppression of the middle make this young guy and comfortable is that some pretty good -- he can make some plays -- that -- but you've got to make this guy uncomfortable. Because you let it sit back in the pocket and lady looked downfield and -- a blind squirrel didn't get lucky every now on the and so the -- that do want. Think they understand it the ball is a three face game you played its third the third counts of defense at third offense and third especially in. Got a sixty special teams unfortunate you know hopefully he'll be back you know without the intention. And be able long snap but they got to address that because that was anybody's game until the long snapper went down. So we have to -- Raiders have to say look. We didn't play that sure we lost a game the game that you you wanted to win Monday night at home you know -- got a tough season. You wanna win that game but the Raiders he ultimately they didn't play as bad as that thought. But if they continue to struggle on offense. I just don't think this defense is durable enough to hold teams to nineteen points all year or you know to keep those numbers council. They got to pick it up on offense Carson's got a get this offense going. All right lets it Carson and this team it's tough to stop each week.
