Oakland Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour told Murph and Mac on KNBR (via SportsRadioInterviews.com) in San Francisco that he believes their run defense will be improved this season.
“I just think it’s attention to detail. I think we have the talent. I think everyone knows that. It isn’t where we don’t have talent to get it done, we definitely have that,” said Seymour. “I just think it’s everybody committing to our common goal and being where you’re supposed to be. The only thing I can go out and do is do my job, but everyone has to have that same mentality and I think at this point that’s what we’re building now. So I’m not gonna predict anything at this point, but I definitely will say our run defense will be a lot better than it was last year.”
Last season the Raiders ranked 27th in the NFL against the run. They’re going to need a strong effort from their front seven this year to get the job done.
