Coach Allen transcript from Monday

By Steve Corkran
Monday, September 24th, 2012 at 1:51 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Will post comments from players after locker-room access. In the interim, here’s the entire transcript from Raiders coach Dennis Allen’s news conference Monday:

Q: How is Darrius Heyward-Bey doing?
A: He’s doing better. I believe he’s been released from the hospital. He had a concussion and he’s got a neck strain. He’ll make a full recovery. He’s going to be fine. We’ll just have to evaluate him and see where he’s at as far as when we get him back.

Q: Thoughts on the hit?
A: It’s the game of football. I don’t think people are trying to going out there and hurt peopole. The safety was playing the game fast and physical. It’s a tough game to play when you’re making split-second decisions on how you play the game. It’s the unfortunate things that happen in this game but we move on from it.

Q: Talk to DHB?
A: I talked to him this morning.

Q: How did he sound?
A: He sounded tired. But he’s doing OK. He was in good spirits. He’s doing fine and we’re looking forward to getting him back.

Q: Prognosis on when he’ll be back?
A: The concussion is obviously the bigger issue than anything else right now. He’s a guy that we’re going to have to continue to evaluate and see where he’s at. We were all pleased to see that it wasn’t anything severe as far as neck injury or anything like that.

Q: Brandon Myers’ condition after the concussion?
A: He got that late in the game. Brandon’s been in here today and feels fine, no headaches. He still has to go through the protocol of passing all the tests. But it didn’t seem to be severe.

Q: How involved do you get in protocol?
A: That’s what we do as organization. I don’t get individually involved specifically but we all know what we’ve got to go and player safety is the biggest concern. We’re not going to put a guy back out on the field until we know that it’s safe to put him back out there.

Q: Lot of hits taking place across the league Sunday. Thoughts?
A: There’s rules in place to take care of those things and I’ll let the people in charge of taking care of those things take care of it.

Q: Surprised there was no flag on DHB play?
Allen: It’s a judgment call.

Q: After seeing the tape, thoughts on Michael Huff as a corner?
Allen: I thought there were some things that he did well. It’s been awhile since he’s been out there. There’s a learning process out there. It’s not like you just go out there and he looks like an All-American or an all-Pro player the first time he goes out there. There’s going to be a learning process for him. The great thing he was able to learn and we were able to get the win. I would expect the next time he goes out there that he would be a little bit better.

Q: Giving a lot of cushion while other corner playing tighter?
Allen: I think some of that has to do with playing back out there on an island and you know you’re all by yourself out there. It’s just developing that confidence to know that he can do it and we’ve got all the confidence in the world that he’ll be able to do that.

Q: Anything surprise you about what you were able to do yesterday . .
Allen: No, I mean, I think things that I’ve known all along. We’ve got it in us to be a mentally tough team, and compete and fight and keep going until the very end. That’s what you have to do to win consistently in this league and that’s what our guys did yesterday.

Q: Talked about patience, belief in the system, how important to get a win to validate it . .
Allen: Well, any time you have success, it reinforces the message that you’ve been trying to preach. So it was good for our players, for our staff, for our organization to see some of the fruits of our labor. Listen, we’re not a finished product. We’ve still got a lot of work to do and that’s why we’re meeting to day to get all those corrections made and hopefully we’ll get that taken care of and we won’t make the same mistakes when we go against Denver next week.

Q: Areas that were concerns that got addressed form Week 1 to Week 2, run defense, field positon, etc. . .
Allen: Every week it’s something different. No game is ever perfect and there’s always things that you got to improve on and there’s things from week to week that you get better at. I thought our run game was better in the game the other day, the fact that we were able to get two takeaways on defense was an improvement. The fact that we were able to create field position with our special teams, that was an improvement. Our third down conversions on offense was an improvement, was a big part of why we wont the game, so yeah, there were some things in that game that we improved on. Now the challenge is, can you continue to improve on them on a weekly basis.

Q: Did you last night after the win have a chance to celebrate with family?
A: Yeah, we had a good time. Had some friends over and enjoyed it.

Q: Going back just once, it worked out to be a happy day for the organization, but can you take us back to that 10 minutes when DHB was down, unconscious? What was that like?
A: Well it was tough. I was actually out on the field watching everything as it took place. And it was a scary situation, and we’re blessed and we’re fortunate that he’s going to be fine. That’s part of this game that we play and it’s a tough part of the game, but we’re happy that Darrius is going to be fine.

Q: But how did it change the emotional energy? The focus?
A: Well that’s a difficult challenge, and it’s really a difficult challenge for both teams because there’s a flow to the game that you get into and the flow of the game was stalled there for a second. But I thought our guys did a great job of refocusing and doing the things that we had to do to win that football game. And I thought we did a nice job of that.

Q: How much of that do you attribute to Carson? Players talked yesterday about his calmness. What’d you see?
A: Same things I’ve been seeing from him since I’ve been here. That’s why we’re glad that we’ve got the quarterback that we have, because he’s been through a lot of different things and seen a lot of different things, and he doesn’t let a lot of things distract him. He’s got singleness of purpose, and I thought he did a great job – the whole game, and then especially there at the end of the game.

Q: The two, particularly the one to DHB and then the last short TD pass where he broke to the outside and got Denarius, those were tough throws.
A: I thought if there was one thing that you take out of the game from Carson where he had a big improvement, his accuracy, especially under duress, was outstanding. So he understands how to play the game, he can fit the ball into tight windows, and we need our quarterback to play like he played yesterday.

Q: How did Willie Smith grade out in his first start?
A: Overall I thought he graded out pretty well. There’s still some areas of improvement that he’s got to make, but for a young guy to come in and play against a defense like that, I thought he played well.

Q: Carson didn’t have the best start yesterday but was able to come back. What are some of the things that you’re looking to improve going into Denver?
A: With Carson specifically?

Q: With no room for error obviously.
A: Well I mean I think there’s a lot of areas for improvement. Defensively we’ve got to be able to get off the field on third down and then when they get down in the red zone we’ve got to make them kick field goals and not score touchdowns. That was a big thing in the game that led to a big difference in time of possession, so we’ve got to improve in that area. Offensively, I thought we did a better job. Obviously we’ve got to be able to protect the ball, we’ve got to do a better job of staying on our feet and not slipping down, which is what happened on the one interception. So there’s going to be areas that we’ve got to improve in every week.

What kind of week will this be for you, going back to Denver?
“It will be just like every other week. It’s going to be a division opponent. It’s a big game, but we can’t get into individualism. This is a team game. We got a challenge to face the Denver Broncos, and we’re going to come up with a good plan, our players will execute, and we’re going to go try to win a game.”

Is there something that will happen, though, when you step out there on game day, on the opposing sideline? Obviously you have some memories from there.
“Sure, it will be a different feel. It will be a different feel. But that’s another one of those distractions that you can’t let take over. It’s not about me, it’s not about Dennis Allen vs. the Denver Broncos, it’s about the Oakland Raiders vs. the Denver Broncos. We’re going to need a lot more than just me out there to go win a game. So our focus is going to be on our team trying to exploit whatever weaknesses Denver has and eliminate the times that they’re able to exploit whatever vulnerabilities we have.”

Will you have to be looking for wide receivers this week?
“That’s a potential. We’ll look at that. Reggie and I will get together and talk personnel probably this afternoon, so we’ll see.”

What about the energy that the fans brought, especially in the fourth quarter?
“It was going pretty good. We got a great group of fans. The Raider Nation is probably the – they’re the most passionate fans I’ve ever been around, so that was a great feeling, and we need that energy. The players feed off of it, the coaches feed off of it. It’s a big factor in the game.”

What have you been telling the players to keep the penalties down?
“Just do your job, be disciplined, do it right, don’t do things that are going to cost your football team. And like I said before, at the end of the day, I have to do a good job of bringing it to their attention, the players have to do the job of getting it corrected, and they’ve done a nice job of that through three games.”

Everyone was talking about the zone blocking. Do you think you’ve silenced some of that?
“Maybe for a week. That’s the way it is, and we understand that. We go to go out and we got to execute on a week by week basis. That’s what the challenge for us is, and that’s why playing in the National Football League’s so hard because you got to be able to bring it for 16 straight weeks. We’ll go back to work this week, we’ll have a good plan for Denver and we’ll be ready to roll.”

Q: Did you think it would take this long for your offensive system to yield fruit?
A: “Well, it takes time for, anytime there’s something new, anytime there’s change, it takes some time for guys to understand how to work together and how different situations are going to play out. So, yeah, you’re expecting that it’s going to take a little bit of time. It was nice to see some of the results this week.”

Q: Have you had a chance to study video of Peyton Manning yet?
A: “I’ve studied him a lot in the past. I haven’t got a chance, really, to really focus in on them. I’ll spend the better part of this afternoon and tonight, tomorrow, getting a good feel for them. He’s obviously a great player, he’s a Hall of Fame player, and we’ve got our hands full with it.”

Q: Curious to see what Jack Del Rio has done with the defense you ran last season?
A: “Well, yeah, I’ve seen what they’ve done. They’re doing some of the same things that we did last year and then they’ve got their new little wrinkles that they’re doing. Jack Del Rio does a great job coaching defense. He’s always been an outstanding defensive football coach. So, yeah, you watch those guys that you coached and watch them play. They’re doing a good job on defense. They’re flying around, playing fast. We got our work cut out for us.”

Q: How much did you feel the Mile High atmosphere was an advantage for the Broncos?
A: “I don’t recall anything, in particular, where we just said, ‘Hey, we’re going to try to use this as an advantage.’ It’s a tough place to play. They’ve got a good fan base. It gets loud. We got to go and play against a good opponent. We got to get ready to play the game.”

Q: Is Philip Wheeler playing the way you expected?
A: “Yes. He loves playing the game of football. It’s fun for him. It’s not work for him. He enjoys it, he flies around, he tries to make every play on the field that he can. He’s the type of guy that we’re looking for. He’s done a real good job for us, and we’re happy that we got him.”

Q: Look forward to no infield dirt?
A: I think we’re one of … I think we’re the only team that plays on a dirt infield. That’s something we have to deal with. The opponent has to deal with it. It’s another one of those outside distractions that you don’t have control over so you just understand what you’re dealing with and understand how you got to play on the dirt then you move on.

Q: So are you rooting against the A’s?
A: I hope they win. Is there any way we can get a grass infield and they can still win?

Q: How much does it help the offensive line to have Wiz for second straight week?
A: That has a lot to do with it. In our scheme the center has to be responsible for a lot of different things. He was one player we thought made a big step forward this week as far as not only his play but getting us started in the right areas and doing those kinds of things. I think as we develop some continuity in our offensive line and we’re able to keep the same five guys playing on a week by week basis we’ll do nothing but get better.

Q: More no huddle in future?
A: It will be a part of our offense. We’ll see on a week by week basis. Everything is game planned on a week by week basis. Just because we ran it this week doesn’t mean we’ll run it next week. We’ll have to see what we think gives us the best chance to win.

Q: Like how it looked?
A: I was pleased with the way the no-huddle

    “okay heres the deal, the boat looks like a piece of crap. i mean very ghetto, the band kicks ass, the drinks about 6 -8 bucks each. not to crowded, and not a pick up place thats for sure. If you bring a date then make sure she knows about it ahead of time or you will look like one cheap ass mofo.”

    Another stellar review for Beeecham’s party boat:

    “This is a JOKE! This cruise was a waste of my hard earned money. NOT one thing about the ad is true. The boat, yeah right more like a pieced together tug boat. And the band….WHACK! What an insult to real reggage music! Oh and the smart a** fake a** bartender….what a B*tc*! The security is WHACK! and appears to NOT like Hispanic folk, but loves the Persian/Armenia folk, they were allowed to bring their liquor on, but the hispanic and blacks were checked and werent allowed to bring even a water bottle on board and it was Real water BTW! Please can someone tell me who ever heard of a business charging for frozen (costco brought) food and then making you COOK IT YOURSELF?? That’s right we paid for frozen chicken wings and had to cook them ourselves, WTF??? And then the pizza was $3 a slice…..straight from Domino’s, WTF??? This company made a cool $6300 alone from the $45 (or $49 depends if you brought tickets from TktM)admission on that TUGBOAT and then they made atleast another $2-3k on drinks and that fake a** food. I have not seen a blantant act of false advertising in many years, this was the absolute worse. I would not recommend this to my worst enemy. We wasted $135 for 3 of us. They should be ashamed of themselves for lying about this. The picture of the boat on their website is NOT the boat that we sailed on, no way shape or form!”

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Best run defense we have had in years.

    Slo-Mania!!!
    ===========================================
    Think Slo was credited with 9 tackles, is that right JFB ?

    Must have missed them.

    Saw one stop. Big play. Prevented a first for the Squeelers.

    Besides that, nothing that impressed me. As usual.

    ohh the fb page is priceless!

    a couple gems:

    Wish fb had a “dislike” button!

    What a joke, you call yourself a business just close your doors now and call it a day, you obviously do not care about your customers, and based on your BBB review http://www.la.bbb.org/business-reviews/Cruise-Lines/Star-Party-Cruises-in-Long-Beach-CA-13079600
    it is apparent that you don’t care and are not in the business of servicing your customers. I have am just in awe of your rude staff and t…he lack of accountability that your organization demonstrates, Really!!!!!!!!! I mean really why are you in this business, whoever is in charge really needs to re-evaluate why they are doing what they are doing. You have single-handedly ruined a night that was meant to be magical and fun. Don’t give yourself too much credit though, you’re a dime a dozen and we will take our business elsewhere. We are in the 21st century and I cannot believe in this day and age you think you can pull off poor customer service and not hear about it, have you checked yelp lately, BBB, Facebook? As a business person you should know that the most powerful form of communication is word of mouth, and I am personally committing to you that I will spend the rest of the holiday season making sure that everyone knows what a JOKE your establishment is.

    So, I bought tickets for the December 16th Lights Cruise – an Office Holiday Party booking for 24 people – took my reservation into the office and was told by the girl there that yes, there was plenty of room on that 6:00 cruise (This was on December 5th, so, well in advance of the desired date). However, she was really busy at that moment, so would I mind coming back to pick up the tickets…of course not! I leave the reservation with her, along with my credit card and go happily on my way….Today, December 13th – 3 days before the cruise – I call and tell her that I am coming to pick up the tickets today and she says to me “Oh, I am sorry, I wish someone had called you – that boat was bought out buy someone else and so we can’t accomodate your party – even though I made the reaservatuion first…Then, as I was asking why no one called me (and worse, I may not have known until Friday if I hadn’t called today) She then told it was not her fault, and HUNG UP ON ME! I called back and no one would pick up the phone….seriously??? Is this how business is conducted? What a horrible experience – I know I can’t do anything about it, but I wanted to vent. And I will tell everyone I know not to do business with this company – ever.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    However, so far have not found anything relating to pac 12 network. But I do know there is official streams, I just don’t have Comcast, Xfinity account to log in. Some good person out there has got to be streaming it I would think. Atleast I hope. I’ll be looking the rest of the week for it!

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I wouldn’t mind watching PAC 12 games myself.

    Anyone else know of a link to watch PAC online games without having a cable or Direct tv account?

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Some tremendous throws by CP yesterday.

    The fade into the right corner of the EZ on the DHB TD was perfect.

    The spin and throw on the DMoore TD was sweet.

    The pass to Myers that he got concussed on was perfectly placed.

    IMO, the best throw of all was the one to Streater. That was a very very difficult toss, cross field, tight window. Excellent velocity and the accuracy was phenomenal on that one.

    Great game by CP.

    Some of you may not have liked his tackling from the S spot as a las line of defense, but from the corner position, he’s probably already one of the better ones in the league.

    Can’t wait to see him in Denver next week against Decker.

    I was sure one of those people. The guy could cover but tackling was a skill that seemed to elude him just as the target did.

    his moronic “humor” and obsessive repetition are fun to make fun of.

    don’t like me. like beeech. i don’t care at all.

    but i’m having a great time flushing him out.

    Typical Raiders, lose games you’re supposed to win, win games you’re supposed to lose.

    Under that logic, I’m not surprised the Raiders won. However, I did feel that Big Ben needed a physical azz whooping, and that didn’t happen. In fact he had a pretty good game.

    Several 55 haters have stepped in and taken your place. You’ve actually been pretty fair to the kid.
    ===============================================
    Thank you sir. Try to be fair and objective about him, but I must admit I think he’s a scrub. He’s still on my ish list for the whiffing and jogging and the funeral fiasco. Still if he makes a play, I’m thrilled. Think he does a good job calling the D signals and getting guys set. Think his pass coverage and diagnosing of screens and draws and delays is very underrated. Still think he’s very slow footed and does a poor job overall against the run.

    Have to keep it real about 55 in order to prevent my friend in NM from going over the Slo-Mania cliff.

    master beeechum=johnny mastro, lead singer and harmonica player for a decent blues band in long beach. the band is actually ok. but u have to see him to put a face to his amazing abilities to score strippers (and talk about weiners).
