Tell The Truth Tuesday: Raiders Look Ahead Coming Off Bye Week

Head Coach Jack Del Rio has dubbed Tuesdays during the regular season as "Tell The Truth Tuesdays" – days where both players and coaches alike take responsibility, good or bad, for what occurred the previous Sunday.

Even though the team didn't suit up Sunday as they were on their league-mandated bye week, the Raiders players reflected back on the first five games of the season and told the truth about their performance.

Raiders cornerback David Amerson

"I looked at some games, and really my main focus is just looking at San Diego, getting the extra time to see what they're doing and what they like to do to defenses and what kind of players they got, so that was my main focus.

"I just want to be another playmaker in the secondary and be a guy back there that they can count on to make big time plays when it's needed and just be consistent. That's the main thing."

"We looked at what we did well and what we did wrong. It was good to look at our mistakes so we don't forget about them and we can learn from them. Just executing the play calls. That's pretty much it. We just have to execute."

"I didn't do too much self-scouting because I only played in one game, really, so mostly I just looked at San Diego and get myself prepared in case I play this week or whatever.

"Right now we're stopping the run well. The front eight, I think we're playing good as a whole. I think we're playing good as a defense. We're still making minor mistakes, but other than that I think we're playing good as a defense."
