1st year Special Team Coach Ted Daisher needs to get his coverage units in gear. As stated in my post yesterday, our special teams coverage units were gouged by the Browns which allowed a commanding 21-3 lead to slip away. The coverage & return units are vital elements in the important field position battle. The Browns starting field position was well inside Raiders territory on 3 occasions due directly to the shoddy play of the special teams. Below is a breakdown of the Raiders coverage unit's statistics through 3 games.
|Kick Return Coverage||Ranking||Average|
|Punt Return Coverage ||Ranking||Average|
