Allen: 'Our consistency is not where it needs to be'
Dennis Allen is pleased with some of the team's play, but there is a lot that left the head coach wanting.
Mean obviously it was it was a competitive game and then you know that was kind of where the momentum of the whole game. You kind of turned around. -- they got us pinned back. You know and then the sack fumble right there was a huge play in the game. Well I mean you know we we had hair back when we get there -- some touches and and he did some nice things in the game -- -- 36 yard run in the game so. It's really just a waiting game kind of played out. Work. -- you see it. On the I couldn't really comment on on non. -- Denver's football team. You know I'm not in that building. I wasn't here last year so I can't -- you talk about. You -- the Raiders were last year and obviously this year. You know our consistency has not been where -- needs to be. And you know there's there's times were -- really good things. But then there's there's there's other times where. You know we we we compound mistakes at times and and that's. That's what we got to do a better job of it. Well well the thinking was this is that we wanted to have the option there in the second half. To. You know come out in and have changed -- to do something in the second half and really when you look at the game waiting game played out. We get the ball they're first in the second half and we have an opportunity to go down score put some points on the board. Which would have you know would have been a great deal we had a holding penalty -- was or had a penalty there. Which put us out of field goal range in and really kind of stopped the drive but that. If that was the thought process behind. -- Well we had a we added we had a plan that. You know. Give police and help in some some chip help. You know when you know I thought we did a nice job of the first half we. Weren't able Lipton you protect as well against him. There in the second half but I thought and first ever thought you know we kind of held in check we'll open it. Yeah. Well. Number one is Peyton Manning's whole thing quarterback. You know so well he does -- to a lot of teams. They don't put but I obviously that was the critical variable I thought defensively in the football game. Is that we didn't do it good enough job of getting off field on third down there the first drive of the game they convert 33 down on the first drive. So I thought we did a nice job of getting in the third down. But -- gets a guy like that you got to be able get off the field. And we weren't able to do that you know enough times I thought our defense. You want I know we gave up some yards but I thought defensively our ability to stop them in the red zone. I thought our guys played extremely hard again we'll put pressure on Peyton there especially in the first half -- So you almost pleased with the effort you know obviously. You know when pleased with the outcome. Tough. Whether mark. You know what it it you know. You know went home on Sunday. And took my father off life support. And that's not easy to do. So was it part yet it was hard. But. I know my father would want me to be here. With this football team and now I wanted to be here this football team. So I'm sure you guys can imagine that it it wasn't an -- situation. -- -- -- time I received a lot of support from a lot of different people. With this sort this organization has been outstanding in the sports that's concerned. The players the coaches. Home as well last. Countless. Friends family. Even people around we've been very supportive in this situation. It. It at all. No not really you know we wanted to it is to give them an opportunity to. To get the ball and in and we did that. You know we only had 47 played -- -- was in the game offensively so so record. To release did a lot of people -- touches when you only have points in place so. You know we had a plan here in the -- Ohman and I thought we did a nice job I thought. I thought that the touchdown down there in the red zone on screenplay was an outstanding call in the game until we executed. Tremendously and and now we review points off. It. Well I will say this I thought our guys went out there and compete that team that we played tonight obviously is a very good football team. On the led by -- thing quarterback I think John fox and his staff do an outstanding job. Our team -- tonight we came up on the short end of the stick. The Denver Broncos were were better than we -- tonight. But I thought our guys fought that's what I want to see. The remaining three games of the year Wednesday -- guys fight and compete. Because that's what takes away honestly. -- I was I was real pleased with the way that Phillip Adams played and you know Phillips earned the right to it to get more playing time. We've had a package in for Terrelle. In both games. Again like I said we had 47 plays in the game tonight so the situation didn't play out -- -- and will continue to be. You know on our active. On game day roster and will continue to carry -- place for him. Michael Huff went down. With a wrist. And then Darren also went down in the game with that same ankle. Well I mean that we just got through so I don't really know -- exactly where it is I just knowing when they -- finish a game. Concern is more often you know injuries and secondary.
