Tell The Truth Tuesday: Players Recap Loss To Washington Redskins

After a game like the one the Oakland Raiders played on Sunday, the best thing to do is get back to work, and prepare for the next one. As Raiders quarterback Derek Carr said Sunday in his postgame presser, "we got our butts kicked." With a fresh start in Week 4, the Silver and Black's signal-caller will try to recuperate, and prepare for a stout Denver Broncos defense this weekend.

With that being said, let's take a look at what members of the team had to say on "Tell the Truth Tuesday."

Head Coach Jack Del Rio

"There were several moments, I thought, in the game where we had a chance to claw our way back into it. Each time we had something come up that kind of negated that possibility. The ability to work and fight throughout and keep coming, I thought there were a lot of signs of that."

"I think sacks are always a combination of rushing and coverage. They've certainly got good rush. We knew that coming in. The pocket got collapsed a little more than we're accustomed too. There were some opportunities to get the ball out and we didn't take advantage of them. So yeah, I would say lack of rhythm was the biggest thing."

Running Back Jalen Richard

"It's just frustrating that's all it is, but you've got to understand at the end of the day those guys get paid just like we do. They came to play, and we just didn't have an answer for the things they were doing. We just had a few little mistakes, attention to detail, technical things. That can be easily fixed, so that's the biggest thing, and a good thing."

Linebacker Nicholas Morrow

"It was a different feeling, obviously, coaches put the mistakes on the board and you have to correct it, but it was a tough feeling man."

Center Rodney Hudson

"We just didn't play well enough."

Linebacker James Cowser

"I feel like we're focused today, I feel like we had a really good focus on what we needed to do. It's always hard after a loss, Tuesday's feel a little different when you lose."

Cornerback Gareon Conley

"There's always room for improvement, whether you played good or bad. I have to learn the game more, get more experience, but I'm willing to take on the task."
