Raiders | Rush defense has been vastly improved

Fri, 04 Nov 2011 20:46:53 -0700

The Oakland Raiders rush defense has allowed just 3.2 yards per carry over the past three games, and head coach Hue Jackson said there is no secret as to why. "We're just getting people on the ground, basically," Jackson said. "Getting off blocks. All the things that everybody says, all the cliches that people use, we're doing them the best we've done them. Kudos to the defensive staff and Chuck Bresnahan, but the players, when it's all said and done, they have to make a decision in that locker room that they're tired of having the ball run at them like that, and that's what they've done."

Oakland Raiders defensive coordinator Chuck Bresnahan said his unit's top priority against the Denver Broncos in Week 1 and every week will be to stop the run.

When you do that, you have the opportunity to do some special things."

Bengals | Bresnahan says poor showing his fault

Thu, 20 Sep 2007 12:15:39 -0700

Kevin Goheen, of the Cincinnati Post, reports Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Chuck Bresnahan said he takes full responsibility for the defense giving up 51 points to the Cleveland Browns. "I'm pointing (the finger) right here. It is a frustrating deal. But I put it on me. When they win - and I told you guys last week - the credit goes to them for executing the game plan. I didn't have them ready to play. For some reason we blew very simple adjustments that we did the entire offseason. There was nothing special in this game plan. To not execute, I take that personally. Because I really believe the way you play is a direct reflection of the way you're coached. I take that personally. We'll have them ready to play," Bresnahan said.
