Allen: 'That outcome was unacceptable'
Head coach Dennis Allen is searching for answers following their 55-20 loss to the Ravens.
When your defense gives up nearly 100 points into games something needs -- and in the case the Raiders. What do they start. Against Tampa Bay they gave up 278. Rushing yards Sunday against Baltimore they limited the Ravens to 78 yards on the ground. But they allowed 341. Through the air. John Henry Smith went searching for answer -- We'll just two weeks ago all the raiders' fortunes will looking at all they've won two of three games. And played very well against an impressive Atlanta Falcons team but did two weeks that have followed it seemed the Raiders give up 97 points they've lost both of those games. Safe to say the raiders' fortunes have fallen to earth. Hard to. Well I would hope that they would all be on -- because we all in the image. That's where you can play in the National Football League in. You know. That outcome was unacceptable. And now we've got to be better than that. Done -- -- of course comes to the Raiders with a reputation as a defensive coach. Does this mean he'll be getting more involved to fix the problems that they'll -- Raiders defense but I've been very involved. Been very involved and and in what we do game plan wise. You know defensively so. But I'll look at any avenue or anything we need to do that Schilling gives us chance and it helps us win football games. The Raiders lament the fact they have been able to put together a complete defensive effort in weeks just when they stopped one aspect of the other team's office another one comes back to bite them. Our issues and then then. At least defensively and -- been the inconsistency issues. And we played good in spurts. And then another church we we don't play so well. And -- we did a better job stopping the run. This past week. It was passing and -- Offensive tackle Khalif Barnes. According to Dennis Allen. Should be rating go after a multi week absence to start at right tackle. When the Raiders take on the high powered New Orleans Saints this coming Sunday. With the Raiders I'm John Henry Smith. Comcast sports net. Well Darren McFadden Mike -- are both still and walking boots and while the word is that Mike Goodson might actually closer to returning to action after that. High ankle sprain that he suffered out last week. If he's not able to go then I think you expect a lot more of the same which you signed Baltimore now a lot of people thought that Taiwan Jones would get the bulk of the carries he kind of became a forgotten man especially with. Undrafted rookie and practiced well and refugee Jeremy Stewart. Getting a run there but it came down to the fullback with the Marcel -- yet twenty touches to carry the ball a lot and you know see a lot more of that. Going forward because he is a veteran and he is dynamic when he has the football in his hands.
