Allen on Burris: 'He's the type of guy we're looking for here'
Allen comments on Miles Burris' progression, says the Raiders still have a lot of things to clean up, and is pleased with how the team battled back from negative situations.
I think miles continues to get better. Every week. You know he McGinest said it before I mean he's just typing data we're looking for here he loves the game football. Plays extremely hard. -- eliminates. The -- repeat mistakes. And I'm pleased with the way the miles first plan. LaMarr Houston. Those are those of the plays a world that we're looking for you know and he does those things he placed in and makes those hustle plays and and for us to be. On the type of defense that we feel like we're capable the end that's what you have to play the game and you have to have eleven guys playing it at that that effort level. At that pace and if we get enough guys doing that and we'll have a chance to be successful. -- What -- closer every day. You know I think our guys are or get a better feel for what we're what we're asking him to do and how we're asking me do it. And well I think they're they're they're gaining a little bit more confidence in themselves. And therefore. They're able to cut it loose a little bit more and Tom. That's the standard. You know with which we expect our defense play. -- -- Yeah. It was yeah. Yeah I mean. You know obviously as coaches we come in here every day in the absence of a perfect so there's still a lot of things that we will be cleaned up a lot of mistakes that we made. That could cost us at some point down the road so. But -- I thought I think the biggest thing when you look at. Over the last couple weeks what our defense has done a lot better job of disease they've. We've we've done a better job of getting eleven -- around the ball. In and we played. We played harder and now we've had more success -- I think those things read off of each other. It was worse for -- season before we go into fuel mourn the loss to we're. And shot look forward to a certain rules and your. Well I'm I'm disappointed that we're down seventeen to three. You know. But also understand it's a four quarter game. And you know that'll stop the game at halftime. And stop the game at the end of the third quarter. You continue to play for sixty minutes and that's what our team did we play for sixty minutes and we were rewarded at the end of the day with a win. It. Well -- you know I think what's pleasing is that you know -- negative things happened. You know our guys don't hang their head. In. And lose hope. Bigger guys believe that we can win. In they continue to fight to ovarian at the end of the day. On the game's all about making enough plays to win and that's what we were able to do yesterday so. I was pleased with the way our guys no matter what happened in the game no matter what was negatives in the game. The fact that they kept playing and they kept competing. And they they they responded and and rebounded back from negative situations. A couple weeks we haven't really don't know what he did is it just. -- -- Well I mean I think it's I think it's NFL I mean I think you know when you look around the league -- -- You know one week somebody may jump -- make a lot of plays in the next week they may not be as big factor. Some let's do it. Execution some of that student you know what the Pulitzer. Trying to take away what they're doing to you so on. And and part of it is they listen young players you know they're they're gonna they're going to be a little bit up and down sometimes you have to ride the roller coaster -- of young players but I was. I was pleased with the way that he responded especially after the play in the end zone. When we felt like he had an opportunity to make the play. In the end zone earlier. One of the earlier drives to score touchdowns Davis had to kick a field goal. But he came MacKey responded to a -- situation. Made a big play on third down converter. To a first down. Gave us an opportunity go down scored tying touchdown. Going back to that. -- about. We watched -- we'll let you know why he was at its immensely. All of those. Follows. You know I don't think we we came out next Jeter like -- six -- We had too many mental mistakes I think thirteen I was very well prepared I think they came -- and had a good game plan an excuse to their game plan. I don't feel like we played. That type of football we're capable of playing in standard to which we set for our offense so.
