NAPA - Lane Kiffin has a way of getting his point across.
Sometimes it's through messages in press conferences where he calls out players for sub par effort.
The latest to get that message was Javon Walker, of whom Kiffin said he didn't the mentality of a player giving his best because the "lights" are on.
Kiffn also does this during practices.
Lately during team sessions, Kiffin can be heard calling out both of his right tackles, Cornell Green and Mario Henderson.
As they walk to the line, Kiffin will yell out something like "C'mon Mario, let's see something."
Kiffin isn't berating them, more like challenging them.
It is obvious Kiffin sees the right tackle spot as an area that needs some fire under it. Green is a veteran, but was a career backup before becoming a starter for the Raiders last season.
Kiffin has called out Green last year when asked why tight end Zach Miller had to stay to pass block so much by saying whether Green was limping because it was the second quarter factored into the decision.
Henderson is a second-year player that coaches worry if he has the tenacity and confidence to play in the NFL.
Green will be the starter because Henderson has done nothing to warrant playing time in camp. Seth Wand or Fred Wakefield would be likely candidates to be the backup right tackle.
Kiffin will continue to yell at his right tackles. For the sack of the offense, Kiffin hopes that keeps him from having to yell at them during games for missing a block.
