Coach Kiffin Talks about the Team’s Loss
Oakland Raiders Coach Lane Kiffin talks about the loss of the team on their previous game. According to him, there were just so many chances to win the game and so many one play here or one play there, of being so close. The team had a hard time dealing with it today because they know it’s a game they should have won. The Raiders lost and now it’s five of six games where they have been in front in the fourth quarter and as a team, they obviously have not mastered how to be a great team and finish teams off when they have them there.
When asked is there anything to it that a team must learn how to win, something maybe Coach have heard from other coaches, or he believes is part of the process, learning to win, “Sure, you learn how to win but it’s a matter of how fast and how long it takes you to learn that. I totally believe that. Great teams that win for an extended amount of time know how to win because they know how to finish and deal with circumstances that come up, they know how to handle third down situations in loud environments, they know how to handle pressure situations, they go back to their fundamentals regardless whether it’s the second quarter or it’s the last play of the game,” Kiffin replied.
For Lane Kiffin to be 2-4 is not acceptable. It’s better than some things and it's better than losing games the way the team did the week before. “That’s not what it’s about, it’s about winning. We need to do that and we need to learn how to finish these games,” Kiffin said.
The Oakland Raiders like to start better than they have been and not put themselves in holes where they have to play so well in the second half to get back and get ahead. Kiffin believes they have to continue to improve and they saw some improvements in the last game that include improvements on defense. The coach was extremely excited about the energy that their special teams and defense showed and if they play that way, the team will be in these games and they will be able to win a lot of games if the team play that way on defense.
The team of Miami wasn’t really a learn how to finish game because Oakland Raiders were up so much in the game, it wasn’t finish a crunch game where things are really tight in the end. “Cleveland we blocked a kick, we had a chance to finish the game on offense, but we gave it back to them and they went all the way down the field and we blocked a kick. By no means did I think we had it mastered after those two games”, Lane Kiffin sated.
Coach Kiffin is pointing out what’s happening and figuring out why they are losing. The team goes over the games they are losing. As poor as the offense was yesterday, to be 15 yards from a game winning field goal at the end shows that if the team play good defense and don’t turn the ball over - until that last play - the offense had not turned the ball over and had not got the quarterback beat up by taking a bunch of sacks and losing field position. It shows that if they play that way, they can still be in games. “Obviously we don’t want to play that way; we want our offense to be a lot better,” said Kiffin.
The Oakland Raiders will continue to play with great determination and excellent hard work.
