CB Nnamdi Asomugha thinks the D isn’t hitting on all cylinders yet

CB Nnamdi Asomugha says the D has strides to make in order to be better to be able to compete in the AFC West.

If the Raiders are going to make a run in the AFC West, their defense, particularly against the run, is going to have to be much improved in 2010. Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha knows that and told PFW he expects the defense to be better, but added that it isn’t “hitting on all cylinders just yet.” Oakland’s starting secondary returns mostly intact from a season ago but there were changes made to the front seven however, and players are still getting to used to each other. “Obviously, we’ve made strides, but there’s no way that we’re there yet completely because it’s such a new defense,” Asomugha said. “There are new faces. There are people in new spots. … We’ve had the camps and the OTAs and all those things to get it there, but you really don’t know until you actually play games. “In the first few preseason games it’s looked pretty good, but we haven’t had a full game working together. We’re not far off. We’ve got the talent there to be really special. It just depends on how quickly it moves as far as the chemistry.”
