Los Angeles Rams HC Sean McVay(Opening remarks)”Good day today.

Postby linchao » Wed Nov 21, 2018 3:14 am

By the looks of it Greg Zuerlein Jersey , feeling good about (LB) Mark Barron’s availability for the game. (TE) Tyler (Higbee) and (G) Rodger (Saffold) were also participants today and then (K) Greg (Zuerlein) will be out for the game. Other than that, feeling good and a great challenge ahead.”(On how aware he is of equally distributing the ball when he’s designing the game plan)”Yeah, I think one of the things that we try to do is use all five eligibles (receivers) and we’ve got a lot of great players at a bunch of different spots and we try to spread the ball around. I think (QB) Jared (Goff) is doing an excellent job, just going through his progressions, getting the ball where the coverage – or whatever the defensive call dictates. You definitely want to be able to get those guys involved and that’s something that we try to be mindful of. Certainly, you don’t always get some of the looks that you’re thinking about and things happen off schedule. But I think overall, he’s done a great job of just getting everybody involved by naturally going through his progressions and whatever the concept that we’re running dictates. Fortunately, a lot of guys are making plays and he’s putting it in great spots and getting great protection.”(On if Barron is on track to start)”Yes.”(On what he thinks Barron will give his defense)”I think it gives us a great player back in the mix. Good communicator, has great athleticism to be able to play sideline-to-sideline, good understanding of what we’re trying to get done. We’ll watch him and see how he feels. Then, obviously tomorrow and leading up into the game, we’ll be able to kind of have a better evaluation of what does that snap count look like. But, if Mark’s going to go, we certainly want to take advantage of that and get him out there and contribute for our defense.”(On how he tries to mimic the crowd noise in Seattle during practices)”Yeah, I think you probably heard it. We get these loud speakers going, get a lot of complaints around the area. Hopefully we don’t do it too much (laughs). That’s really the closest thing that you can do. I’ve been around where you do the crowd noise and that’s not the most fun way to do it. So, really, as long as you’re creating an atmosphere that really inhibits your ability to verbally communicate – specific to the offense – that’s what we try to do. I thought our guys handled it pretty well. You can never truly mimic what CenturyLink (Field) is going to be like. Hopefully, we’ll handle it well and it’s going to be a great challenge.”(On if he agrees with Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll’s statement that everything revolves around RB Todd Gurley II in the offense)”Well, I think he’s certainly a great player. When you’re a running back that has the ability to do, really Authentic Tyler Higbee Jersey , everything in terms of running the ball, catching the ball out of the backfield, protection. He’s an important part of our offense, no doubt. But, we talk about the power of the unit all the time and it’s about all 11 (players). That’s what we believe in and that’s what we feel. We feel really fortunate that (RB) Todd (Gurley II) can do a lot of things for us. We feel really good about putting the game in our quarterback’s hands and when he can distribute the ball to all the different playmakers and we feel great about our offensive line’s ability to protect and communicate and block in the run game. So, to say he’s the centerpiece – you know what a big fan I am of Todd, but it’s about our offense and really all 11 (players) are very important, instrumental part of what we’re trying to get done.”(On what Barron’s experience brings to the defense relative to the current players at the linebacker position)”Well, I think any time that you’re getting a player, like you mentioned, that has that experience, it’s very beneficial. It doesn’t take away – I think (LB) Ramik Wilson’s played really good football for us. (S) Marqui Christian is a guy that’s gotten a chance to get a lot more snaps and he’s a player that we have a lot of confidence in that’s continuing to develop and our coaches have done a nice job. But, he’s a great football player. Very smart, instinctual player. You see why he was a top pick coming out of college. That athleticism, where he’s a safety at Alabama, played safety early on in his career and then transitions when he got traded to the Rams and he’s been excellent as a linebacker playing that inside spot. We’re excited about getting him back.”(On if Barron’s return will impact what LB Cory Littleton does as far as communication)”No, it doesn’t just because (LB) Cory (Littleton) is our MIKE linebacker. He’s done such a great job with that. He’ll continue to do that and Mark plays the MO linebacker position for us.” Middle linebacker Derrick Johnson isn't as troubled as most people seem to be by the Oakland Raiders' lack of a pass rush.The way Johnson sees it, there are other ways for the defense to impact games.Yet with only two sacks in two games, Johnson also realizes something has to change."It's a lot of ways to contribute to being a really good defense besides getting sacks," Johnson said Thursday. "Don't get me wrong, sacks help big time but red zone defense is a big part of being a really good defense. Turnovers for sure. It's still early."Oakland's pass rush Youth Michael Brockers Jersey , or lack thereof, has been heavily scrutinized since the team traded 2016 defensive player of the year Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears a week before the season opener.Mack has had a sack and a forced fumble in each of his first two games while helping the Bears to an NFL-leading 10 sacks. Mack also scored a touchdown in his Chicago debut against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.Conversely, the Raiders pass rush has been sparse at best. Defensive end Bruce Irvin got to Rams quarterback Jared Goff for a coverage sack in Week 1 while rookie defensive lineman Maurice Hurst dropped Case Keenum in Week 2.Like Johnson, Oakland defensive coordinator Paul Guenther believes there are other ways for the Raiders to be effective. During Guenther's stint as Cincinnati's defensive coordinator, the Bengals had more than 33 sacks only twice in four seasons but finished in the top 20 overall three times."Obviously you'd like to have sacks but if you really look at it, when you look at the statistics year in and year out, the teams that are up there in sacks aren't necessarily playoff teams. A lot of times they're not," Guenther said. "You'd always like to get a number of sacks. It kind of feeds off each other and the kind of personnel you have. That's not the most important thing but obviously you want to get after the opposing quarterback."Oakland has forced only one turnover in two games. The Raiders are also 26th in defensive third-down efficiency, allowing opponents to convert 12 of 27 opportunites.Johnson said there is a sense of urgency in Oakland's locker room, although the 35-year-old sounds more concerned with the Raiders' inability to stop the Broncos on their game-winning drive in the final seconds last week than he is about the pass rush."Really the last two games the first half was pretty good team effort but we have to finish the close ones, win the close ones," Johnson said. "As a defense we have to be hoping for that situation, saying, 'Hey, if we stop them it's over.' It's not the whole defense. It's a play here, a play there. Not being tight enough here or communication. Just a little something on each play of that last drive hurt us."With nine new starters and a 10th — Irvin — playing a different position than he did a year ago, the argument could be made the Raiders are still going through growing pains.Johnson isn't buying it."That's too easy of an excuse," Johnson said. "We've been together for a little bit. We know the plays. We just have to execute better. Our defensive coordinator knows we can do that. We need to help him out by making some plays. We have to make plays."__
