Raiders, NFL, Las Vegas discussed on Freddie Coleman Show
Triple eight, ESPN 887293776 real Quick update me on the Saints Raiders game really good game That's now at halftime. At one point, the Saints had a 17 to 7 League. But Carlson is a 20 yard field goal for the Las Vegas Raiders. This game is now tied at 17. At half time that interception by breeze. He was rolling pretty good in the two minute offense, and then he had the linebacker right between the numbers. And all of sudden you give points before the end of half time. And everything got a little different between the Saints and Raiders. Freddie will you not tell? We've talked about this a lot. Points before the half the last two minutes of the first half. You talk to any coach Nick Saban harps on this, maybe more than anybody else we've ever talked to. He values points before the half as double. So that's essentially a touchdown that in his in his mind and Sean Payton's mind those those two guys are good friends, right points for the half, especially off turn over when you're looking to get points. Man, you talk about a momenta MME swing going and a half that that is a big big mistake by Drew Brees. He never saw the backer eating right between the five and zero. Next thing, you know. Got ourselves a tie ball game and Derek Carr comes under a lot of flack. Give him some credit on third down in the first half, seven of eight for six first downs and a touchdown is only incompletion. We just saw it was a throw away in the right corner, 17 to 2377 yards and two touchdowns so far, D Walter Titans have a nice night, too. For the for the Las Vegas Rays of five cats with 60 50 for years, But right now, a game tied at 17 between the Raiders and the Saints on Monday night football, the first game that Brian who stadium in Las Vegas, that friend is going to stop by and tell us what it's like to watch a game in that state, and he's going to do that, in about 10 Minutes of the NFL news real quick Before we get to the likeable Lakers. The NFL has fine, not one, not two, but three coaches. Three coaches. We're not wearing masks on the field this weekend they have find so far. Big Fangio of the Denver Broncos. Pete Kallen, Seattle Seahawks Cows stand head of the San Francisco 5900 bucks each. We're not wearing masks on Sunday, Each of those things we find another $250,000. You add it all up $1.5 million in fines. We're not wearing masks. By the way. John Gruden is doing the same thing not wearing a mask in the sidelines. But in Las Vegas Raiders boy, the NFL Christmas is gonna be big with all this money hidden and finds our guys not wearing masks. I thought it would be like 25 grand for a coach, Freddie, not a Honda. Not like with the NFL's doing sending a very firm message. You don't mask up you go pay up. Can you imagine? Go to your body's A. Well, Not only is it cost 100 thou You got paid 250,000 cost me 100 because you write to fifth. Yeah, meanwhile, where the damn mask period safety and financial reasons All right there. By the way, Paul Gutierrez Way talking about 10 minutes. Let's bring him in now. ESPN phone Ace reporter comes the Raiders he joins in Freddy and Fitz Simmons on ESPN Radio, ESPN APP and 80. Paul number one. What is it? What is that stadium like we see it on TV. First came in Las Vegas. What is it like being there where you are right now. Guys very bizarre mean on a personal level. It's strange, you know, I went to UNLV. So the thought of the NFL ever coming in Las Vegas with something you never could even comprehend, let alone expect to see And now that it's here There's no fan. It sounds like a scrimmage. You can hear the pop of the pads all the way up here in the press box. And on top of that, it's It's kind of like with the rest of the world is going through. It's hurry up and wait. So it feels like that here in the stadium. I mean, it's got all the bells and whistles. You could imagine Carol Davis, the mother of Mark Davis, and the widow of Al Davis, she left The brand new Al Davis torture and memory of him, So it's a lot of just kind of surreal experience is going on right now. And I know yeah, there's a game going on to the states were in charge early on on, and the Raiders have mounted a impressive comeback to tie this thing off the half 17 or what have you seen? Describe what you watched. Basically, the Raiders could not get their running game going get. The first quarter was a mess for the Raiders. I mean, they could not stop the run, and they could not stop the Saints past Russian In the second quarter, Derek Carr was able to turn it around and use those intermediate pass came to set other things up. Hey, looks like a different player in the 2nd 2nd quarter after taking three facts for the first time in his career in the first quarter, so it looks like he's got something going with himself right now. Drew Brees look like Super Sharp one series, and he looked really slopping the next, So it's kind of, you know, it seems like it's going to come down to who's got the ball last in this game, which would be pretty amazing considering the Raiders of such big underdogs for Gutierrez, ESPN NFL Nature reporter covering the Raiders joining us on Friday, and Fitz Simmons on ESPN radio. What has it been like in that city? Having an NFL team, even though fans can't go to the stadium, knowing that NFL team is there in that stadium and there to stay Well, put it this way, guys. I think the best way to put it is is, you know with the pandemic, there's been a lot of things that have shut down obviously different states. Different counties have different rules. But Las Vegas for some reason. Last night at 11 59 PM opened up the bars. So the fact that they had to do with the Raiders and the Raider fans coming into town Mayor may not have something to do with that, but I'm a I'm a conspiracy theorist every now and again, and that's the way this down. Let's welcome the team and the Raider Gear and Raider fans as New York, New York, the casino on the corner here, Tropicana in the Las Vegas Strip, the Statue of Liberty. She's rockin a number 20, Raiders jersey yourself, So it's pretty interesting. That's hilarious. It looks like a big Roomba. I mean, that's it Looks like on TV..
