Here are five keys to the game heading into the Week 5 match between the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders.
“I think a guy that is playing really well is Carr. He’s not turning the ball over, he’s smart with the football. His completion percentage I believe is up seven percent from last year, so he is throwing at a high level. The one thing they are not giving up (is) sacks as an offensive unit, and they’re not turning the ball over. That’s huge for us going up there against a division opponent.”
“Listen, those guys come after you and they do a good job. They are very good football players. I couldn’t tell you what their numbers were, but they get pressure on the quarterback and you’ve got to be aware of that. They are good football players.”
“Just go compete, you can’t stop. Nobody in this league feels sorry for you, or what you are going through or anything of that nature. Nobody cares what you are going through except the guys in that locker room and your fan base that truly understand that next (man) up mentality. You have to have it. I’m not going to sit here and sugar coat it; the guy is a Pro Bowl player. Are we going to miss him? You’re damn right we’re going to miss him. Do we need to overcome it? Yes! You have to. You can’t blink.
“I feel good. The coaches have a great plan for me and everybody, really. I trust in them to get me ready, and I’m definitely ready. I have been training really hard to get back in shape. It has been probably two-a-days for the past two weeks, so I am feeling really good physically. Mentally, it took just a couple days of being out there to get into the swing (of things) of knowing the playbook and the play.”
“They’ve had some close games too that they’ve got down in certain situations, and they’ve made those plays to win it. That’s the league. Look at how many close games there are. You’ve got to find a way to make that play to finish the game. That’s what it’s all about. It’s not just us. It’s every time in the league. You’ve just got to go out there and execute.” Read
