Antonio Pierce: Lack of offensive manufacturing was “surprising”

The Raiders entered Sunday 2-2 below interim head coach Antonio Pierce and had been seeking to proceed some constructive vibes after their bye.

“No excuse there, it’s surprising,” Pierce stated in his postgame press convention of the crew’s offensive regression. “Loads of time to organize for the opponent. We knew what they did, nothing new. Simply, once more, poor teaching, poor efficiency by the gamers. Begins with myself.”

May Las Vegas flip again to Jimmy Garoppolo to get one thing constructive happening offense? Pierce stated the Raiders will consider all the pieces. However Pierce famous he wasn’t inclined to make that change through the recreation.

“I believe you’ll be able to take a look at each groups how they had been taking a look at it, proper?” Pierce stated. “However for us, we had been transferring the ball, there was alternatives — [negated by] penalties, turnovers — for us to place factors on the board. And that simply wasn’t the quarterback. That’s why I stated it was the offense.

“It’s straightforward to level the finger on the quarterback, and clearly we are going to take a look at that as we go ahead. However we knew what we obtained after we put Aidan at quarterback, it was going to be some ups and downs, and this was not one among our higher performances.”

O’Connell completed the sport 21-of-32 for 171 yards with an interception. The Raiders went three-and-out 5 instances.

Las Vegas doesn’t have a lot time to sulk over the loss, because the membership will host the Chargers on Thursday evening this week.
