Allen explains communication issues that led to burning timeouts
Coach explains what led to the Raiders burning their second-half timeouts, looks ahead to facing Brady Quinn and the Chiefs, and says the team is still evaluating Aaron Curry.
To. Say that again. Well. A couple of more communication Harrison. You know we and one we -- -- you take time out on offense. You know. To to save ourselves from the delay game. One on defense was of you know it was a no mistake on -- we gave the signal on the sideline and they felt were called for timeout so we -- all time now. That's on me I'll put that on me all the way. And then obviously the last situation ones. On fourth and ten you gotta make a decision he kicked a field goal. You got to you need to score to win the game. Do you kick a field goal in the when the -- playing good defense. Feel like you can go and stop them get the ball back. With decent field position with a chance to score touchdowns as you need a touchdown no matter what. I decided I was gonna kick the field goal after us and the team out there. Thought better of it decided I wanted to go and try to convert. The fourth and ten. Not to do that I felt like medical timeout to make sure we got the Dolphins back on the field so that was a thought process behind that and now. We -- felt good about whatever decision that we made it felt like we're gonna get the ball back and had an opportunity. To get another drive on offense and at the end they were able to get two more drives on offense and still had a chance to win the game at the end at the end of regulation. You ever. -- -- You. It's situationally where it is well it depends on where it is in the game. You know. I didn't like the -- I didn't like the delay game that we got when it was first down on the nine yard line. I didn't like role. We got a better clock management that that was not good put a sentence. You know first and and now. First and goal from fourteen -- believe it wasn't and we had the offense pass interference on the -- very next play so we shot ourselves in the foot there. But. But yet time management something that we. You know obviously we we we look at him and that was really the first time this year that we. Yeah we lost in timeouts we really needed in the game. There. Is experience. Well let me and you know -- it's -- I mean you know that's that's their team I don't know how to respond to it but obviously. I don't see them changing a whole lot of source philosophically what they're gonna do on offense the plays -- third call how they're gonna try to executed. I think we got to go look at the tape and and you know look at what what they they've done up to this point obviously their last game. Brady Quinn was quarterback so you will have a feel for. What they think they do with him. Worse career. Still in the evaluation process we still got two more weeks to make a decision on him. At whatever point it is that we feel like. That he's ready to go in Kim was staying the murders of National Football League game then and now we'll have an active and -- And I don't know we'll see how he -- -- works this week in and when he looks like in practice and you know we'll go from there. -- I would expect that we were probably. Be able to get Gordon back at some point this week I don't know exactly when that'll be. Barnes and Spencer probably doubtful. He's eligible to start practice on Saturday so which met him he really means next week you'll be -- -- price. -- -- What's not a spy. You know to dazzled Frontline are taught to not leave until the ball's kicked Tennessee's ball foot. And really no margin for errors about that small. And you know we kind of we left a little bit early in in they did a good job next unit we didn't execute like we're supposed to and they make a play. -- Yeah we had a few mom none of which I think her. Major injuries to cost annual cost him the ice time and I'll go through them on rod Streeter has in me. Take Collison had a shoulder. Miles Burris has an elbow. Desmond Bryant has an elbow. Keenan Clayton had a shoulder. And Mike Goodson has -- Home again I don't expect those to be anything that. You know causes us to miss any time but no plan better field -- on Wednesday.
