Stanford Routt on Raiders D: “Everyone in the league knows what our game plan is”

Eddie Royal, Stanford Routt AP

One of the great things about Al Davis can also be frustrating.  The Raiders defense of 2010, for instance, looks a lot like the Raiders defense of 1970, minus the same results.

“We basically play man every damn down,” cornerback Stanford Routt told Tim Ryan and Pat Kirwan on Sirius XM Wednesday, via Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune.

The hosts tried to point out to Routt that the Raiders can mix in zones, like in a game against the Eagles in 2009.

“We ran a little bit of zone that game, but predominantly, [man] is what we do. If we play 60 snaps on defense, at least 56 of those are going to be man coverage. Everyone in the league knows what our game plan is,” Routt said.

Routt was careful not to complain, pointing out how disrupting the opposition’s timing can make life difficult on quarterbacks.  Then again, he admitted that playing man coverage against concepts like a three-man bunch set is “hard as hell to do.”

Perhaps that’s why the Raiders are willing to pay their cornerbacks like Routt so much money. When they find one they like, they want to keep him.

That’s why potentially replacing Nnamdi Asomugha could prove so difficult.

    Seriously, if you can play CB with the Raiders, you’re a damn fine CB.

    Any CB can play zone, man is where it’s at.

  2. rayvens says: Jun 16, 2011 12:03 PM

    So the Raiders play man Coverage 90% of the time….Now wat? Without Asomugha that will have to change. BTW; Didn’t u guys sweep ur division and still didn’t make the playoffs?

    “Classic!!”

  3. masterblaster78 says: Jun 16, 2011 12:03 PM

    First!!!!! Nnamdi will be hard to replace, but his salary is hurting the team. The Raiders gave Nnamdi the time to learn to play when he at first seemed to be a bust. Now look at him. The top corner in the league. I think a little bit of appreciation should be on his agenda since the Raiders never lost faith in him. Hope he decides to return.

  4. hobartbaker says: Jun 16, 2011 12:05 PM

    Smart guy, obviously. His Mom didn’t name him Cal-Poly Routt.

    You obviously don’t know much about the Raiders but hey, here you are talking like you do.

    The Raiders are almost always in man, and have ALWAYS been, this will not change, with or without Asomugha.

    Now you know something about the Raiders.

    It’s not breaking news that everyone knows the Raiders game plan. Just like on offense-“go deep!”- is the game plan.

  7. randysavage4ever says: Jun 16, 2011 12:21 PM

    ITS MAN TO MAN COVERAGE , LIKE BASKETBALL CHECK YOUR MAN – DONT GET BURNED…

    if your a good DB you should be able to do that…

    YES I AGREE WE NEED TO MIX THINGS UP MORE…

    but, we rely on our DBs on an island to lock the WRs up and our pass rush to get to the QB…

    IF executed our defense works. Routt dont speak out like this again. Mr.Davis just gave you a more then generous contract…

    If you have a problem and want to mix it up, call Rod Woodson or Chuck Brez, or Mr.Davis. Do not speak to the media about it.

    I cant stand when players talk to the media about strategy & game plans that should be KEPT IN HOUSE…

    And didn’t we have the #2 Pass Dee in the NFL.. Yes We Did~

    Nxt to B-More secondary we’re by far the best.. And I only give the edge to the Ravens due to them having Ed Reed..

    Other than that The Raiders have the best secondary in the NFL.

    The Raiders game plan is whatever vendetta Al Davis has on his plate in any give season.

  11. p4hbiz says: Jun 16, 2011 12:39 PM

    And with Rod Woodson as the CB coach this year it’s only going to make everyone in the secondary a couple of notches better.

    GO RAIDERS!!

  14. humb0lt says: Jun 16, 2011 12:55 PM

    Reality check for p4hbiz….

    The only reason you look good on paper in pass defense is because the Raiders’ run defense sucks – 2010: 29th in rushing defense; 2009: 29th in rushing defense; 2008: 29th in rushing defense; 2007: 31st in rushing defense; 2006: 25th in rushing defense; 2005: 25th in rushing defense.

    When a defense is consistently dominated on the ground, there’s no need to test the cornerbacks and that makes them look good.

  15. 303bengalguy says: Jun 16, 2011 1:03 PM

    So THAT’S why the Raiders are always getting Routt’d!

    It’s too bad the Chargers run game is non-existent which makes it funny to watch Philip Rivers seethe up and down the sidelines as he got swept by the Raiders and their horrid run and pass defense.

  20. p4hbiz says: Jun 16, 2011 1:14 PM

  21. Tim says: Jun 16, 2011 1:15 PM

    You made the Raiders D into a frowny-face.

  22. rabidbillsfan says: Jun 16, 2011 1:17 PM

    @ Humbolt

    Actually, there is a link between the 2. Running man to man all the opens up running lanes because the DB’s and safties and some LB are playing the man and not the ball. If you look at the game logs, alot of the runs the raiders were gashed on were either passing downs, or 50/50. When you play man to man all the time it takes a toll on the D. They need to be in top shape, and have a high motor, becuase they have to keep up with the offense. I actualy like the Raiders D. Outside of the poor run coverage, they have a very soild core of players. With the right coaching and maybe a few tweaks to the gameplan, they will be a top 10 D someday.

  23. jgrange says: Jun 16, 2011 1:20 PM

    Also, man defense is what has remained a constant with the Raiders. I believe in all of their Super Bowl victories, they ran a 3-4 defense. I’m not sure of that since I wasn’t alive to see but from what I heard from the older fans is that’s true. The Wiki page for Super Bowl XV says the Raiders were the first team to play in a Super Bowl using the 3-4 defense against the Vikings(SB XI). They used one against the Eagles and the team was pretty much the same against the Redskins towards the middle of that decade. The squad has a lot of pieces for a 3-4 defense right now with the only missing piece being a dominant NT. Seymour and Houston on the ends would be nice. Shaughnessy might not translate well into a backer though so we would be wasting his talents because he is very good for us in the 4-3. Raiders have some decisions to make there, imo.

    And what did your great SD defense get you humd0lt? One more win than the raiders. But that’s ok cuz this is the year that Norv is going to turn it around right? And this is the year the chokers win it all? I’ve never heard that before oh wait yes I have from Espn, Nfl network, yahoo sports, PFT, and every year they find a way to blow it in the playoffs. As a raider fan I can say the only thing that’s kept me going for 8 years is watching the Chargers fail year after year

    Stanford Routt actually may be on to something considering the Raiders have(had) the best CB in the NFL, and still haven’t posted a winning season eight years in a row (Nnamdi’s entire career to date) and counting…

    Is the hamster in your head running backwards on his wheel? Why does it need to be “KEPT IN HOUSE” when the entire league knows what you’re doing?!!! Where’s the top secret info here, dummy?!

    If you think you can run man on every down against every formation, then there might not be a hamster up there period.

    The Dolphins embarrassed your secondary without Brandon Marshall while playing 2 true practice squad WRs as the #3 & #4 with Brian Hartline as the #1. That’s pathetic. You stupidly played us “man” when the entire league KNOWS our offense has trouble against zone….. and you paid for it.

  30. albigverg says: Jun 16, 2011 3:22 PM

    According to new db coach r woodson the raiders are goin to start mixing it up a bit… Routt had a good year last season considering they avoided throwing on Asome21 ones side. But when Nam went down he still did well. He relied on every bit of his 4.2 speed..the Raiders have had a good streak the last few years of scoring on mid to late round picks so lets hope vandyke, chekwa, moore and jones will continue the tradition..

  31. frankdatank23 says: Jun 16, 2011 3:34 PM

    He’s right……. I mean Chad Henne had a career day on this defense last year.

  32. JSpicoli says: Jun 16, 2011 3:37 PM

    Defense was not a problem last season, and looks good going forward. D Line solves everything and we have built one, and have a decent to good secondary.

    The problem has been offensive scheme and talent. Hue looks to be the scheme guy, and Campbell played well the last half of the season last year. DMC broke out, as did Ford. Bush, Murphy, Miller etc. the offense is finally taking shape. We should be 10-6 next year. More like 9-5 with 2 games missed due to lock out.

  33. raidermick says: Jun 16, 2011 4:04 PM

    @ p4hbiz

    You are a true Raider fan and I salute you…

    Remeber that the Raiders ARE the NFL – Everyone else is a supporting cast member. You can see how many other fans from other teams just have to read the Raiders blogs. Why, because we are (as you said earlier) the storied Franchise in the NFL – The Raider news here is always the biggest – More peole pay attention to us than there own families – Why, because we are the only team in the NFL that has played in the game that decides who goes to the SB in every decade. Hell, we are the only freakin team in our division that has gone to the SB this freakin Century!

    And all of these fan’s from different teams know deep inside that we were knocking on the door last year. Which also is the last year you will ever see the Steelers in the SB

    They are done, the Patriots are done. the chokers (pethetic chokers) are done. The jets will never be back to the SB – they were already done. The ravens are freakin on geritol they are so old. They are done…

    If we would have made the Playoffs last year (which we missed by one game) We would have dominated. We would have had Pittsburg begging the REFS to end the game. You saw what we did to BEN – You saw what we did to the donkyes, the chiefs and the chokers. Towards the end of the year we were the best team in the NFL by far.

    If you read Routs comments, he suggests that the defences stops the run, then there’s the one play that kills us where someone missed their gap. I’m actually ok with that because if that is all you have as an opposing offense, then you have nothing. Just waiting around for us to make a mistake should not be an OC’s game plan. We are one of the youngest teams in the NFL and these kids like to kick ass!. They are learning to drive the Silver and Black Ferrari.

    Once they get it down, we win 3 out of the next 5 SB’s… easily. The only thing that would make this statment untrue is if we had mega injuries.

    That’s it! It’s just up to us to learn how to drive the freakin’ Ferrari…

    TEAM OF THE DECADES BABY!!!..

    Now all of you haters out there, Go home to your families and quit worrying about us, there is nothing you can do to stop us!!!

    Late…

    What is there to even discuss.

    They want to talk about history – OK we have them beat. They want to use the old “what have you done for my lately?” – OK we swept them twice.

    But at the end of the day it really does come down to rings, and they have none. So there is no discussion. Like that movie, “THATS THE ONLY ARGUMENT I NEED SHAWN!” – (jordan vs lebron comparison – bad teachers movie…)

    Please stop making excuses for your game plan by throwing the loss on the shoulders of a rookie CB. McFadden was a 5th rounder. Out of Miami’s 4 receivers playing that day, ONLY 1 was drafted (4th round)….. 2 of them were rookies from our practice squad….. and we literally had no #2 TE.

    Henne can dissect man coverage if given time. Dolphin fans cant believe Oakland was foolish & ignorant enough to play us that way, especially with the NFL’s best cover corner injured.

    It dumbfounds me that you would let us play to our strengths when the entire NFL knew we lacked the personnel capable of effectively attacking zone coverage (that’s not including Miami’s predictability).

    Stanford Routt will not be replacing Aso… He will be starting next to him.. There is always a method to Al’s madness.. I predict Al is letting Nam test the market, where he will find out what the league really thinks of him.. Which is that he is a notch below Revis.. Al will then offer Nam a 10 mil per year contract save himself about 7.5 mil and be able to sign someone else (i.e steve s smith or oline). Routt is getting about 5 mil a year which will be half of Aso’s contract..sounds about right..CJ is most likely done.. As is Huff.. Good riddence to both. Dvd, mcfad,brown and chekwa come up and handle Biz.. Raiders D in top 5.. Offense in top 15..Raiders go 11-5 to win the AFC west..

    Miami has a LEGIT top 5 defense that’s on the incline.

    Our offense transformed itself over night by bolstering the ground game with Pouncey, Daniel Thomas, and a high profile FA to be named later….. while adding an elite speed threat to compliment Brandon Marshall & one of the top slot WRs in the NFL, Davone Bess. We also ditched the reason we weren’t in the playoffs last year—- Dan Henning, Offensive Coordinator.

    Are you forgetting Miami beat the SB Champ Packers last year?….. beat the SB losing Steelers if not for a massively blown call…… and beat the AFC runner up Jets 3 of past 4 times?

    Top 5 defense + Top 12 offense= playoffs.
    Al Doofis=no playoffs.

    Also like I said before we’ll see what happens when we play this year buddy, good luck man.

    @albigverg

    You can rape and pillage South Beach all you like if you’re into that sorta thing…… then you can enjoy the game from your prison cell wearing Dolphin-orange while your pooper’s being violated.

    It’s funny—- you making fun of Henne despite him torching you. Campbell and his 13 TDs really set the league on fire lemme tell ya.

    Bess is the 2nd best 3rd down converter in the NFL. Do you know anything about football? Marshall calls him “one of the best route runners in all of football ever”. Absolutely NO ONE can cover him 1 on 1 in the slot. Welker is an ex Dolphin; Bess is every bit as good.

    Edmund Gates is a better prospect than Johnny Knox AND he’ll face single coverage thanks to Marshall.

    Randy Savage was an “AMERICAN icon”? Really? I thought he was just a failed minor league baseball player who “roided up” and turned himself into a cartoon character. An “icon” to 12 year old boys everywhere. Ooohh yeahh!

    @RandySavage

    @ you saying my comment about Savage “says everything all of us in PFT planet need to know”…… really? Remind me again what PFT stands for.

    I don’t need to deify Nacho Man in a place that has NOTHING to do with wrestling.

    Lemme get this straight:
    -a guy sleeps with a 14 year old;
    -has some responsibility in his wife’s overdose; -gives nothing back to society;
    -wins phony championship belts thanks to steroid abuse;
    -becomes the Jose Canseco of wrestling by fueling an entire generation of wrestlers who abuse steroids in attempt to “look the part” in hopes of gaining success & riches in a fake, predetermined sport, in turn sending a message to kids across America that steroid use is rewarded.
    ….. AND THIS MAKES HIM AN ICON? LMAO.

    Yup, your hamster IS running backwards!

    The guy could sell the heck outta’ beef jerky though.

    And for the record– you were the one slamming a Raiders player while it was ME, a Dolphin fan, supporting him and providing insight to Raider fans as to why he was RIGHT. I was doing Raider fans a favor, you idiot, but you’re too ignorant & dense to realize that.

    @Humbolt
    I see you have not changed. A hater for life. After being destroyed on the ESPN blogs, you came here to continue your troll activities. You really are funny. I guess you spend your life finding ways to talk down the Raiders. Let me ask you one quick question, the Chargers had the number 1 defense and offense last year and they were beat twice by the Raiders. The game in Oakland was won by a great play from that secondary you are bashing (Huff’s forced fumble and Branch’s funble return for a touchdown) and the game in San Diego was all about Jason Campbell (Two of the greatest play action plays I have ever witnessed).

    I’m glad to see dumbolt is still alive. He fled the AFC West blog comment section on ESPN after the Raiders beat the Chargers on 10/10/10. Same Raider hating MO and still has no facts on SD. Keep hating my friend. Keep hating.

    @ fin butt

He obviously doesnt believe in Henne.. Instead you bring out your dweeby stats and claim im in prison… Haha dude get a life!!! Isnt there a cabana boy you can stare at??.. Buh BYE dont come back

    Your use of deception in your article to try and have Routt come across as you hoped he would without your help is cheap.

    A question was asked of Routt by the interviewer, “You cannot play man every Damn Down” and Routt replied we sure can basically play man every Damn Down.

    Your article implies that Routt was ticked off with playing man “every Damn Down which could not be further then the truth.

    As for the Raiders and Corners?, they should call the Raiders Corner U. When they cut Woodson lose people said now what, the now what was Nnamdi lol. Nnamdi will be back but if not the Raiders will bring up another corner to add to their long list of Hall of Fame and future Hall of Fame Corners they have developed of stolen thru the years.
