Allen: 'We have to be focused on the task at hand'
Dennis Allen on the Raiders' lackluster 1-4 start and the upcoming matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Bigger guys focused and and and so for him pretty good week of practice. He is out of -- he's going through rehab process. And you know obviously. A good golf this week. And so it. I don't know I'll call on what you -- in and talked that drawl. You'll probably after the weekend and get a better field and next week. -- is. Never an issue. It does help execute the big guys do it later when he did the last thing. Is that harder to go to a game like this and you know on the road and allowed brown you're nineteen loss -- So apparently it. No I mean I think I think our team understands where we're at in the season I think we understand that. We have to be focused. On the job on the task at hand and so I don't I don't wanna proceed have been a lot of distractions for various reasons it Karstens said. It's. An area. It's. Yeah yeah. Yeah. Well no I mean I think I think that thing is we are focused on the game and what I want and our guys understand isn't even though we haven't started the way that we wanted. Wanted to and we haven't played like we think we're capable play and that everything that we set out beginning years right in front so I think sometimes. When you start off. You know one and for that. You know you feel like. Things have lost but that's in this case your guys focused and they understand what we've got to get done and you know we we realize -- you're trying to get a win this week it's Jacksonville would do. Do a lot of good force. Yeah I think there's two there's two teams in the AFC with a winning record so their sales history in career list of you know that sometimes it works out that -- but. I mean really -- in the day that's not -- our focus is our focuses take. And games Jacksonville. But I want our players to to realize that you know there's there's bigger and better things out there force. -- one game. Well I mean obviously you know maybe there isn't that a lot more games next so. But. This week and I mean we don't where we're -- we know we gotta get done and we -- you start this week. He knows he's practiced today he practiced limited yesterday evening his knee yesterday in practice so. He started out here today we have -- -- holding now receivers that world. Yeah I spend much. That's it well there and there's couple. Season ends in different spots. But. -- -- we'll see we'll see -- Taiwanese would get me you know just -- -- -- -- -- That's. What your philosophy. Try to keep him in the pocket making that throw him in the pocket. It. You know sometimes as teachers and then I mean I think the thing. Do these guys not let him extend it extend play with -- feet. That was something that he faced a little bit earlier in the year with the Roethlisberger in that same situation. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Obviously that we had so many penalties and him we made huge emphasis on that -- I wanna focus forced him to. Eliminate those things we've we've. We've addressed it again this week -- four -- you -- technique and understand what we gotta do. To try to eliminate some of taking penalties that we got against Atlanta. Oh sure actually. It's -- type of quarterback you want. Again it's gonna step up and -- take responsibility not look to pass the ball on anybody else. I think courses played extremely well force. He's a standup guy and that's one of the reasons why I'm glad he's our quarterback.
