The differing sides of the Marcus Peters argument

  • The differing sides of the Marcus Peters argument

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr doesn't expect Kansas City's defense to change much without suspended cornerback Marcus Peters.

Still, Carr said Peters missing the game does not "dramatically" alter what the Raiders aim to do at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, when two of the three 6-6 teams tied for first place in the AFC West meet. Now the Chiefs will have to rely on a rotation of underwhelming cornerbacks like Kenneth Acker, Phillip Gaines, Terrance Mitchell and Steven Nelson to do the job Peters would normally do as well as man the station opposite him on the outside. Chiefs have forced one turnover in last four games. Consequently he also left the field under the pretense that he'd been ejected, and even when that wasn't true, he returned without socks, which the lack of a proper uniform kept him from even returning to the field. Alex Smith threw for just 181 yards in that loss, while a ground game that was churning out 100-yard performances early in the season was held to 55.

Suspending Peters for this game could send a message that it's time for him to tone things down. The university dismissed Peters from the team later in the season due to disciplinary issues. It just depends how they roll the coverages and do those kind of things.

UCF names Josh Heupel as new head coach
It's a nice fit for both sides. "I'm very excited to get a staff together and get to work with our wonderful student-athletes". Heupel, however, is looking forward to the task ahead. "We need to play smart football but we also have to be physical".

Peters earned his coach's ire last season after punting a football into the stands on two separate occasions.

"Nobody likes to lose and when you have a lost a few in a row sometimes amusing things happen", Smith said. "Coach made the decision though and we're going to to go with it. Stakes are too big right now with what we've got in front of us, the opportunity in front of us". The two teams meet again this week, with Peters on the sideline.

Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio remains hopeful that Cooper will play, but he'd have to get ramped up in a hurry to do so. We have a good locker room; we have a mature locker room.

Ravens CB Smith suspended 4 games for PED violation
Dixon had an additional two games tacked onto his suspension in September for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy. We'll step up, and we'll still play at a really high level in the secondary.

One player that has really come on of late for the Raiders have been defensive end Denico Autry. When a piece goes down, you have to figure it out and work as a team.

Smith believes that the team stands ready to move on this week against the Raiders without Peters. There are a lot of guys that people don't know about in this league that will guess on routes and things like that. "I think they understand it". To go back and forth on all this stuff on this point is pointless.
