Barnes: 'We have to stop beating ourselves'
Khalif Barnes talks about his health after being back on the field, as well as the Raiders' tough loss to the Saints.
All right thank you guys and that guy everyone has been money -- back on the field police Barnes joining me now in. -- physically a look good out there how -- -- done after this one. Office therefore great known anything else from an come into the game those. I wanted to test out to see fighting. Any pain and that and having pain and do you utterly. A little rusty here and there and within a few plays you know it was revealed nor hurts credit. But I office that when I go back with the -- on Monday before the most or overall happy. The physical. The physical with whoever physically. And so with that in certain happy with that. An overall how would you assess that the performance of line out there Palmer to get sacked a couple of times but it seemed like overall the covets. Was pretty strong and then we're gonna get two and a moment what you do from our salaries that first just assessing the overall performance that. And your performance was good or you know pretty good for -- -- wasn't good enough you know we don't know where -- we take that approach to it but. Consider one of the you know don't -- how had to fight back and to get into something as easy for a lot of guys catch it and throw -- away -- and said -- done you know but. What -- -- his group you are now you know you're from from mini -- from me you know for me from today is that there's no -- -- -- guys. No one else of them I've never seen -- -- no matter what the situation is no matter what. You know. What's going on the game and never quit and never shut it down and I was fighting was played so that was mainly. One get back quicker so wanna -- either and -- put those cars all day so. We didn't do enough ROC to get the win on this from the rule go back to Washington on Monday look at the -- But you know as far as that is commonly -- Mara and those guys did that and part of them for -- and excellent singles listings. And tailing off what you just said that the fight is there for this team. Why do you think there are some inconsistencies. On the play out there because you know certain situations -- defense offense you guys really doing your job out there. But then they'll be a couple plays if they're not there you're seeing the results on the score. -- you to sit around him right there when we're good we're on. And which are talking about consistency. That's a thing that we don't have to do together as -- This guy over here I go over there or this or that whatever. This all three phases of special teams defense and -- two or three coming together and play consistent for sixty minutes. And we do that we win. The games that we lost we haven't done that. So that's what -- all boils down to is being consistent and doing things right all the time even the little things little things. And those are the ones that create little cracks that determined to -- -- so. Sometimes when particularly do so if you think that something might be bigger than the other night when you have to do everything right make you take a little. And first. And -- wanna touchy about a guy out there who I think for the last few years in the locker room I've always -- you praise. But now -- really seen him come out there as a -- Marcel reason you're really actually paving the way for him out there and a lot of plays I think but. What is it about our -- -- speaks in such a dynamic weapon. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- he's he's good around him his vision in Rome that he can see the cutback lanes and run -- -- -- by forcing players to play until they right now. And has great hands as you can see his speed he's a mismatch for our linebackers. Yes and he picks a bomber backers and blitz and we need to characters so he can do all those three things he doesn't very well so. We have a guy like that is minor for deepest corners because you try to figure out who we the national with me to imagine what with your best linebacker or even -- moved -- safety. Can you do that you create holes -- problems for covers and -- no other receivers and weather beaten areas sore. Do you should be so he's almost like another receiver Arthur and -- tournament. And stressful so he's offering replica once we've been doing a tremendous job especially the loss of things and those -- career and so we are we really really need him to be broken -- his best. And then lastly being a leader of this team what he wanted to see from yourself and your teammates this week. Putting those three losses behind united and going out there for news Sunday and since -- Just result as ones -- sustain and wants to keep pushing and execute it get better. I don't want to ever get to our win in America wants you to lone loss. Almost two you know. -- learn from mistakes. Trickles in practice and get better from them next next Sunday and always get better from him. And I just want to keep pushing us alone no one no word quit has a lot of all of it's easy to be and stay in tune with things and happy happy go lucky when he's right on things when guys don't see that happen before but. True character of the team to just imagine you for your own her -- acting things went back. So you know get the first thing with him and -- the start to beat themselves and -- other people so we'll Buren to do that.
