Dennis Allen finds himself in the same place many recent Raiders coaches have been in - looking for the answers to get the once storied franchise back to prominence. The 3-6 Raiders are 3 games behind division leader Denver with seven games to go. They have a lot of talent, but injuries and poor play keep them from putting it all together in one game. Allen’s frustration was evident in his Monday press conference, and he was quite blunt in explaining the Raider’s woes. “Hey, listen, we’re at that point in the season and we’ve got to win football games. It’s our job to find out what our players do well and put them in those positions and give them a chance to be successful. Our issues have been, at least defensively, have been the inconsistency issues. We play good in spurts and then in other spurts we don’t play so well. We did a better job of stopping the run this past week; it was the passing game that hurt us. So we’ve got to find a way to be more consistent.” “I think really it’s the team, the players and the coaches, doing a better job of being on the same page, exactly how to do the things that we’re trying to get accomplished.” “You feel like you fix one thing and then you’re working on fixing something else, so but at the end of the day, we have to do a better job of being more consistent and that’s what it’s really all about.” “I wish there was a magical answer. I know everybody wants a magical this is the solution. At the end of the day, and I’ve said this over and over, it’s about us doing our job the right way every single time. When we develop that consistency, when we’ve had that consistency, we’ve played well in all three phases. But that’s the key to having success.”
