Head Coach Jack Del Rio
Amidst the rain, the Oakland Raiders participated in another practice this morning, as the team continues to prepare for the Kansas City Chiefs. Head Coach Jack Del Rio met with the media to talk about the team's position in the AFC West, and how the team will be ready for Sunday.
Here are the quick hits from Fast Friday:
**Del Rio shared his thoughts on the weather conditions and how the team will use it to their advantage.
"Alright, Fast Friday. Good day. Great work for us in the weather. You can get weather from time to time, so it's great to get a little exposure in it. We took full advantage of it and had a real good practice. We're excited about our opportunity Sunday."
He talked about how the Raiders will game plan and prepare for Sunday if the rain keeps up.
"No, no, we don't just throw it out. We have a pretty good idea of how we should plan and adjust our plan, those types of things. Whether it's wind or rain, snow, whatever it might be, the conditions, we try to educate ourselves, educate our guys, but sometimes you're here and somewhere else they're getting weather and you can't really prepare in it. So today was great because this is likely to be what it is Sunday, so we got to prepare in it, which was outstanding for us."
Del Rio remains focused on the week ahead, and not getting wrapped up in the outside buzz of first place.
"No. Next game is up. Right now it's all about what we do Sunday against the Chiefs – division rival. If you want to win your division you have to win in your division. We're looking forward to the opportunity. Chapter six is coming up."
He discussed the competition level in the AFC West, and how it's a difficult division to compete in.
"Maybe showed other people. I think we have a healthy respect and understanding of that. We've got four good teams in the division. Everybody is intent on having a good year. We're going to sort it out on the field through competition."
