Opening Statement: “(The Raiders game) was a really gratifying win. I thought the players and their approach was really good. I would like to remove the first two plays of the game and then say after that I thought our first three series which finished in stops, the third one being Malcolm Jenkins’ interception for a touchdown, was a good way to start the game.

“At the end of the first half, it wasn’t lost on me that the sack by Will Smithwas really big. I have always said to our defense that the first and last series that we play in either half is vitally important. The way you begin the game and end the half and the way you begin the second half and end the game. I thought that sack at the end of the first half was big.

“I thought we got a little sloppy in the second half with some of our tackling. We will clean that up. I thought we tackled really well last week and part of (the Raiders game), but I thought it got a little sloppy later on in the second half. I just think we need to play a little bit better on that last drive. That’s just me. I am kind of greedy. I know the situation calls for you to play a certain way. I just thought we could have been a little more aggressive. Maybe I should have called it a little more aggressive. I just don’t like seeing them get in the end zone like that at the end. Other than that, I credit the players and assistant coaches for doing a nice of preparing for that game.

“I think (Raiders) are going to be a good football team. They have some players there and Dennis (Allen) is doing a good job. I have a lot of respect for (Carson Palmer). I know they had their running backs out, but I think they are going to be pretty good.

“We are right on to probably the biggest challenge we have had to this point. We have had a lot of them but San Francisco’s offense is pretty good.”

I think San Franciscos offense has the type of offense that plays right into Spagnulos scheme.

Conclusion?

Its not going to work, its not going to work as successful as it did against Chicago by a long shot.

Being a Habaugh.

much like his Brother in Baltimore, I dont think their defense is what everyone thinks it is.

Its just bloated in stats and ranking due to being in a division where offenses is non existent.
