The Green Room: It's gut-check time
Bill Romanowski and Lorenzo Neal hold nothing back and demand more from the Raiders following their 55-20 loss to the Ravens.
Hi I'm Norman asking. My good friend here on the friends on -- scale at more in the green room together may be hearing room and you know we're gonna do -- -- Raiders. There weren't talked 49ers. The enemy. Watch that game yesterday. Against the Baltimore Ravens who I feel. Defensively is a weaker football team than they've been in the past -- Joseph Flacco is not a guy that I trust. At the end and oh lead quarterback. And we went on the road. And we got our butts kicked well. Understatement when I watched that game go lessen the same thing you think you can speak for stats. The Baltimore Ravens defense they're no longer in the top ten there at the bottom half the league because they don't have Ray Lewis is elderly teams get older. I'm not a noting your -- your nose guards hurt you know you Ed Reed perennial Pro Bowl all of you know he's he's banged up. There heard. And the Raiders yesterday you saw them do some things that are just. Not not a good sign not a good sign for your team not a good sign for the organization and I think fans' ability to a degree. They they want to see a team compete. And when you when you don't competing you're you're you're in this situation. Fans start to be disheartened fans are pissed they're disappointed in this and coach Dennis Allen right now he's in a rock and a hard place we're gonna see it if it's the head coach. And who -- McKenzie. Can get this team together and see if they can bring in the leadership this team is lacking right now to try to turn to right the ship and I don't know -- they can do it. Rock and a -- place I think is an understatement. I just think right now they -- the Oakland Raiders and I see a team that is got to dig deeper. I see a team that's got to work harder. Our guys I see. From the ownership. Down Mark Davis he got a demand it from Reggie McKenzie Reggie McKenzie got a -- man that. From -- your head coach. Your head coach yet demand from your position coaches your offensive corner defense -- coordinator in those coaches have got a demand that to the players. Everybody's got a piece in this slow. I -- race. In DC do you see distinct change in short term. You you look at this team and I we kicked around names that you know built -- we talk about -- you used to be with the Raiders you know what everyone loves and he watches film all the time you. You know you look at gruden yeah those coaches get great. They went on to it no question they coach their asses off. So do you see this do you see this organization. Bringing in the guy I didn't sound the -- and the kids. Do you see a window of a four year turnaround do you see this team do they have enough leadership -- -- -- -- -- get more players is going to be to the draft how to win do you see this thing turnaround since -- Ortiz said it's a foreign to him. Since I got my year more players we need. Offensively. We need a big time receiver witted guy that is they go to guy. DHB is not is showing he's just probably a good number three number number four guy. OK to very Smart he can play -- guess what he needs another guy. Okay. I've been Marius I -- Mary stones. You know tied -- need. You know you name it you know did downer. Cruise you need a big time receiver. Next to him. They need to go -- getting -- pass -- We need to get a structure with a guy that can dominate a football game that can open it up to where they can't block. And double up. You know every guy we have nobody that can apply pressure you gotta do -- -- Pressure the question got to bring a fifth or six guys and they did yesterday that didn't work Carson Palmer. Somehow someway we got to keep him from donors options and yesterday it happened to be throwing it where defensive. You know the defense lined up to him that way too many balls batted down. By his numbers look good but. Not translate and went dead yet got to translate and you know score points I don't know. Football that we're gonna -- and a lot more to say I know you've got a lot more at all oh my goodness they are.
