Allen: 'I wish there was a magical answer'
Raiders head coach Dennis Allen explains what he needs his team to do to turn the season around.
Q what's your decision to wave. -- start some games. Well I felt like that. The younger guys that we have more more valuable to us on special teams and so on. That's reason why we made them. After. Obviously a lot like yesterday that you face New Orleans to turn things -- against Atlanta. Is there anything in particular. That you got to work on this week. -- drastically. Change how. He got in play and the last two. Lipped out on the out wish there was a magical answer I know everybody wants a magical you know this is a solution but -- in the day and I've said this over and over it's about. It's about us doing our jobs the right way every single time. And when we develop that consistency. When we've had that consistency we've played well on all three sets -- all three phases. But that's the key to have success. Oh. Yeah. -- -- -- Well I think -- that at times there's a combination of of of all three of those things. You know and and I don't think you can look at one little thing and say. That's it that's the issue. You know there's there's. There's several things we got to get corrected. Yeah Travis Capel had a ACL. So we will. Place him on IR. Both manager not know and Brandon Myers from both going through them to cut concussion protocol. And so will will. Basically let the medical people handle that. And see where there had. My Cubs got a calf which she's I believe he's going to be okay. -- on branched. Injured his neck a little bit I'm not sure of the extent of the injury. We're doing some more -- to really see. Where he is. And then on the guys that that didn't play last week you know both those guys McFadden and Goodson with the ankles -- You still. And same situation as well as a Seymour with hamstring so we'll see where there as we go throughout the week. Yeah I believe -- -- I don't know him. -- I anticipate didn't police really go on this week so on. He had to do we practiced last week. Had another good good day at work with trainers today so. I think room you'll be ready to get him going. -- -- You know if it did okay I thought there worse. No I think he showed us you know some of his youth. You know especially playing the tackle position that but. There were some things there that that I felt like four you know encouraging about the -- -- -- -- -- -- Well I think is more I think it was of no more of an issue with with them in the way that they decide to rush. You know look to me like -- You kind of try to near the quarterback a little bit with their defense -- tackles and in user as structures to try to. You get to the quarterback and and they did a nice job get their hands on -- balls down. You know I'm mercker via. Well it could be anybody in the world will look at some linebackers. -- Well I would hope that they would all be on edge because we all should be -- image. That's where you you play in the National Football League and you know. That outcome was unacceptable. And now we've got to be better than that. Could you fill up with a plan you -- contract he -- it you're not under a lot of pressure to win right now or do you feel that pressure that you have to win right now that's. Our jobs to win. It has nothing to do with contract status or anything like that our jobs to win and that's that's the only reason why I'm here. Is anybody step on the bubble. Nobody's on on the bubble. You know I mean I don't think this is appropriate time to even comment on that anyway. Here. And so it. -- We're using combination of both. It was. You were using but it was a this. -- And what we we visited with. -- Darren specifically grace is there with there. You know week to week basis about what what runs that he likes and now we tried to incorporate more those runs. That he likes. As we've gone on throughout the game plans.
