Coach Allen and Coach Tarver go over a lot of attention to detail and going over mistakes; is that just on the field? Or does it go into meetings?

Tommy Kelly: It is everywhere. You could be walking and he is going to get mad at you for something. He just harps on it so, like I said, we havenít had many busts, our tackling was good the first game. This is the first time in nine years that we have looked that good tackling in the first game of the preseason. So whatever they are doing it must be working.

Other than Lechler & Sebass, Tommy Kelly is the longest tenured Raider on the team and for him to say that about these first year coaches must be a sign of life for the defense
