Raiders | Ryan takes blame for Week 1 defensive struggle

The Associated Press reports Oakland Raiders defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said Thursday, Sept. 11, there are no problems between he and head coach Lane Kiffin but bristled at suggestions by Kiffin that managing general partner Al Davis is involved in the weekly game plans. Ryan accepted full responsibility for the team's dismal Week 1 defensive performance. "That's all on me. I put the game plan in, I run the defense, and it's all on me," Ryan said. "I just want to set it straight because I've been here five years and I don't think people necessarily have the right story… I'm disappointed, but I just wanted to tell my side of the story for once because there's so many other things that come out where I have to read it and take it and I just want the truth as I know the truth."
