Content varies by. I wanted to get into this offensive line. Talk that just touched on there with Andre james had a fumble and also snapping ball really high and couples excreta cases. And then alex leatherwood. I believe had a false. Start the consta- team on the drive late in the game. Drug simpson ahold. It's you're seeing some of the same things repeat themselves. Now i will say again. You don't really know onto the team. Say this and as cliche but it's true you want to tell you the tape tuesday really kind of circulate. So that all twenty two which finally it's back on game pass thank goodness but i think when you when you when you see the tape. I think what you will see a lot of mistakes. The snaps are a problem. They continue to be a problem even the ones that are getting away. Some of them are off target. I thought andrew andre. Gm settled into that a little bit as the game went on. Got a little bit better but early in the game. They're all over the place and you know we've seen two different games now where that's been an issue really big losses based on on bad snaps. So they need to continue to fix that and they need to get better all along the offensive line. But when i was getting at is it seem like at least in the run game. They finally found a rhythm. Lay i think a lot of that was wearing down the dolphins the events but you saw pain bar was hitting the holes heart and i think it was wearing out some of the front and you get to one of the ways to get guys that are struggling to block on the often. The line is to let them get downhill and just push guys around. That's what they can do. And you saw these other do that a little bit so i think that's going to be an encouraging. Sign for the raiders to get that offers online and even just a little bit today. You talked about. Also the defensive tone setter casey hayward turning around things. What do you think needs to be done. That the raiders. Don't keep getting off to these like rocky shaky starts. How do they better game. Plan coming up here against the chargers in los angeles to be able to have the game not be such a slow rocky start ed. I'll also was wondering was looking at his spanish. That was coming to me. I i will say and we've seen this actually just reminded me that i forgot to put this story but we can actually write about this later in the week. I think nine straight games where they have not scored on the opening possession. The raiders. So i think that's leading to it a little bit and don't forget that's like a lot of teams in the league. The raiders like descript there. I that should be your best. Your best series you should. You should have something going early because you have all week to prepare those those plays and it hasn't worked out lately. We saw another struggle on the on. The first driver struggle. Enough second drive. Really of their drives for the raiders today. So yeah you're right choppy starts. They have to fix that. And i think that'll be addressed a you know with the team to say. Hey you need to. You need to have something ready to go. Maybe even go for like a big play right off the top. The raiders like to come out and kinda establish a little bit to running plays the game as often what they like to do. Last week the came through a little bit early. But i think they may take a shot. Take a deep shot early in the game next week just to kind of set the tone it and shake things up a little bit in terms of those bad starts right here certainly okay. How cool is it to watch hunter. Renfro play that guy is so good he squarely. I don't know about that. I just think he's really good. He doesn't believe simon's like he's he deck so good yeah and like after the game is up there like with his backpack in and gatorade and just talking like oh god. It wasn't catered. It was some kind of pillow pocket. I don't know what these things are. What what are pillow pockets. What are pillow pockets. I don't know what pillow pocket star. I don't know what you're talking about. Hunter renfrew was the star of the post game because he brought crystals to the post game which are peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with no crust. They're phenomenal. they come in a little bag. They're one of the best foods known to man. And i don't know where you got pillow pocket their pillow pockets because i thought it was shaped like a pillow shaped like a pillow kinda browse cross. I thought it was like a little like it's got an edge. You're doing like a half moon moon inside of half moon simply bread with no crust so simple it's not sourdot no some all that fancy in the crystals marketed frozen. You let it out defrost. Maybe that's it in his pocket. Be able to let it defrost faster little. This is something that we want. Wide receivers Eating is that okay for him to do yes. Yes no surprise there. Right can't be the healthiest. I thought they were pillow pockets. I'm sorry all good one hundred renfro. No when i said squirrelly i mean because like i watched him on on the sideline do this incredible catch where he like literally put his knees under him dragged his toes scooped up a low pass. Caught it then got back up and turn so quickly on a dime to start trying to run back down the other way i mean. He didn't have much room to run but he picked up another couple yards. I mean those are the kinds of things that like. Not everybody can do the intangibles the way that he's able to control his potty when he needs to to make incredible catches in plays and. That's one of the other things i wanted to get on here about with the wide receivers was like the emergence of brian edwards. Henry rex this season. Everyone was saying one or the other needs to set up I mean step up the season. But i feel like both of them are really starting to come into their own when they're targeted. I think there was five targets for edwards. Told three receptions They blink the. Don't have it up in front of me. But i think rugs had a four four catches on the game. So adam what do you think of their emergence really impressive in you know jon. Gruden was asked about the confidence. He has in them and he said well. We had confidence in them on draft day. That's all we picked them. And that's what we want to see from that. And i i think that that's where they're at. I mean they made these guys. A starters in the off season derek carr said hey. They came to work every day six. Am though the ball around. They became starting wide receivers. And you're seeing them. Emerge more and more brian edwards more and more part of the offense henry rugs. They've been getting the ball. Near the line of scrimmage them make some plays. that's i think key to even opening up the game a little bit more. We saw the big play deep last week. We saw more of a playmaker mode this week and he was motivated. He said by commenting they want to say from who. We did..

"But i think that the raiders defense is here to stay. I want better communication from the offense. I want early on versus ravens. A communication was not good. The raiders offense has never looked worse. Honestly i've never seen that rate. Look raider offense. Look as bad as they did early on the steelers come at russia's they're gonna come up blitzes. The offense has to be on a day game due to go toe to toe steelers. Do you just kind of attribute that shaky start at the offense had just to maybe not even playing together in preseason even though they have the scrimmages with the rams and i know they said you know this is all Even better than having a preseason game going through those inter-squad practices but You do feel like the kind of shaking rust or adjusting to the crowd or just working together in real time. We attribute it to. I think. I think let's start with car. I think that sometimes derek gets a little too ramped up. I think he gets a little. That might be you know just the the nerves and the crowd in front of me wants to go out there and make every throw perfectly so i think at first he was a little ramped up. I was trying to force the ball. The wall a lot but i think he was little. He i think in the second half he. Derek settled down a little bit and started making some smarter. Plays with the football. And it's hard. Heidi you gotta you gotta rookie left. Good goes down pretty early on in the game. You got andre james. That's a young player. That's never started that snapping. So you have you have johnson. Who's a young player. You have a lot of inexperienced online and no preseason games you just thrown these guys out there hoping that their work. You got the crowd going nuts. You got the ravens defensive. Lineman claes campbell. It was a huge task. So i think early on it was partners. I think as park communication you saw. What the front with the bad snap. You didn't see a lot of bad snaps. Rodney hudson a derek carr. Let's be honest. So i think they have the find that groove. I think a couple of games can take a couple games to get used to each other. Practice practice scrimmages scrimmages once the pads. Come on a game comes on. It's a different animals big. It's going to take a little bit of time but you can't take time when you're playing the steelers you can't take time with tj. That's off the edge and cam here where it's coming up in the middle. So this line specially with the injury to denzel. Good they need to stay. Need richie incognito back. I don't know what his deal is. I don't know if it's just lingering from last year or it's a new injury or you don't know what it is from richie. They desperately need especially in still game. Guy chain cognate on the field. Hopefully you can get healthy and get out there fisher and just because you are talking injuries..

"Be one of the stories of the season for the raiders. Moving forward if he continues to develop yes. I'm glad you mentioned john We've talked enough about him when he's played bad and guess what he played. Good football game. He played a really good football game. Actually and i don't know what the statistics said or the or the grades or anything like that but but for my money he played a really good game in a tough situation but stood up to the moment. Max tries at a great game two sacks dominant pressures quarterback hits. He was he was dat performance. Right there is like. I'm not saying that this is what's going to happen. But that's you you start stacking games like that up and all of a sudden you're being talked about in the pro bowl you're being talked about in a lot of different ways so we'll see if he could build continue to build off that i'd be shocked if he did some bad news obviously The raiders paid a little bit of a price for that for that When denzel good Gone for the air. It looks like with a with a torn. Acl the raiders. Are gonna have to get some things figured out in the interior that or their offense of line. Richie incognito could come back And that would mitigate things. John simpson who played reasonably well last night. And richie incognito if not got to figure some things out. We'll figure out about gerald mccoy and can gakugei unique gakuen had a hamstring injury. General mccoy had a knee injury. Both players playing while Up until they're they're those injuries So gotta get that figured out dot. Casey hayward had a nice game Thought that trevor mortga had a few shaky moments but otherwise You know played. Well not cory. Littleton made a mistake on on. The run fit led to a touchdown but otherwise had a good solid football game. They tied Abram and Somebody else with ten. You know a game. High ten tackles are vital tacos ten so a lot to like about what the defense did a lot of names to talk about. A lot of players making plays So that's a good thing All at all a great night football without question for the fans a big win. That i think the raiders can build on You know moving forward. Zeta-jones jones gets that gets the long touchdown. Pass officially win it. A big moment for him. So a lot of these names sam that we've been writing about talking about during o. T. as in training cap showed up big. Yeah they certainly did. They certainly did and what they wanna get vinnie. All before we take a quick pittsburgh i thought you offensive. Line new offensive line rookie. Right tackle new center a lot of moving parts. John simpson young guard. You'll getting star. All things considered played pretty well. I mean air car had time to throw right now. They struggled but their running game never got going but their car. Dropback fifty six times and i think i saw the staff where he was pressured. Like on twenty twenty two twenty three percent of his backs. we're mark. Jackson was pressured on more than fifty percent and we thought baltimore was dominant offense of wine. Obviously we know that. The raiders were offense. Continue to be working progresses. These young guys continue to mature develop. Justin houston working. Alex leatherwood one play on the right side. Andre james cup penalties but all things considered the young offensive line held up against a very very good defense in and did what it had to do to give derek all the time he needed on the biggest stories of the game so i was really impressed. With how the unit gelled in its first game. Yeah and I was talking to Lincoln kennedy My radio partner. Avi obviously one of the better off of live in ever do it And what what what struck him was that. Alex leatherwood on james both finished strong. There are some moments where we're where they struggled but he felt like they got stronger during the game and he felt like some of the issues for alex early. We're just technique and fundamentals. That he feels like he'll get those squared away. But i'm with you all in all when your quarterback drops back fifty six times and there's three sacks early fifty nine if you got three sacks so he dropped back fifty. Nine times was sacked three times in fifty nine pass attempts. That's it. You don't want the sax but i mean at some point you got to figure that the other teams gonna sack when he dropped the ball when drop back that many times and especially a good defense like the baltimore ravens so by and large. I'm with you. I felt like the offensive line stood up and got better as the game went on. I think they need We'll we'll take a quick look ahead of pittsburgh you're going to have to run the ball against steelers i think It's not good. That josh jacobs looks to be in a physical state right now. One game into the season Kenyan drake look like Was banged up a little bit as well so that's something that is worth monitoring. But i think it's imperative. That the raiders. Get run game going. And and not have to throw the ball fifty six times. Conversely see where they are healthwise. You're on the defensive line playing a good quarterback like big band. But i'll tell you this if they could bring the same type of pass rush against big ben it. It'll be a good day for the raiders. The app is certainly will. The margin is as mobile quarterback has ever played the game with all due respect to big band of what he's accomplished. He's not that mobile anymore. So like you said if if they can speed him up a little bit. That's when we see big brand be mistake prone in the past now pittsburgh going into pittsburgh on a road. It's always a tough place to play. Pittsburgh has a really good defense as well. But i think the rate let me. The raiders moved the ball. They moved up despite not having any kind of run game to speak. Oh for the most part. The longest rush was marcus. Mariota thirty one yard run. And then the running backs combined jacobson drake at six forty five yards. Nothing to write home about obviously But the fact they were able to moved the ball against a good defense in those kind of in that situation where the ravens new for the most part they were passing their cars to one's up. Four hundred thirty five yards able to move the ball against pittsburgh team now taking care of the ball the road contending with what those are some things that are going to have to do based on what we saw in baltimore. I think baltimore is one of the better teams in the afc. And that's what. I thought going into the season definitely continue to win the afc north and make a run in the playoffs. And the raiders did what they had to do a very good baltimore team. That's it wouldn't shock me. They go on road and pittsburgh or run as well. Yep and that is a story for another day. We will for sure be back next week to talk about whatever happens on sunday in pittsburgh but At the very least at this point for the raiders they go in flying pretty high After the big win last night elitist stadium. Now they gotta put it behind them as quickly as possible. It's a short week. It's a good opponent is a long trip to pittsburgh. the they're. They're not in great shape physically. Why physical wise the raiders. But it's football and that's what you have to do in the nfl. There's hurdles that you're going to have to overcome played play a game to game week to week. You know the drill. But we're going to be here for you next monday at some point to talk about what happened on sunday against pittsburgh steelers.

"In the history books for Las Vegas Sports Raiders come away with the victory gave a lot of people close to some heart palpitations and heart attacks in the fashion that they won, But in the end, they were victorious. Not all that's all that matters. Lamar Jackson couple costly turnovers to break this down for us to break down the game. What are the Raiders do? Well, what do they need to improve on while the guy joining us on the line Right now he knows this Raiders team inside and out. He's the founder. Of Silver and black Today, the editor of Vegas Sports Day. Also a good dude. Scott Gold Bernsen joining us right now on the line. Scott, I appreciate you coming on. How are you? Hey, what's up, Scott? I'm doing well. Hopefully, everybody got some sleep and the football hangover real, but it's a good morning Vegas. As the home team wins their first real big game at home, Really with fans in the stands, So it's a good morning. No question. So Scott in brief terms, I'll say the first half Raiders defense keeps him in the game thought Derek Carr was a little off in the first half. And then midway through the third quarter towards the fourth quarter. Derek Carr, it seemed like that first fumble by Lamar Jackson woke up the Raiders offense a little bit, they traded blows back and forth. And I mean to me, That's what sums up the game. The defense in my opinion, even though Derek Carr is phenomenal in the fourth quarter, and there were guys on this team, there's no question that made plays. Darren Waller was incredible. Uh, you know, listen, we can name several guys. Derek Carr was very good, But let's be honest to me. It was the defense that won this game for the Raiders. Do you agree with that? You know, I do agree with that. I think you look at this game in the context. Guys of the last two seasons. If the Raiders are in a similar position and had not made all the moves on defense, improve the defensive front and improve the linebacking corps would they have been able to create a turnover like they did? They gave their cars the chances to go down and score. And the answer is no. They were terrible at takeaways the last two years next to last in the league. It's not last in the league, and so you're absolutely right. The defense kept them in the game, and that's what they blasted. Think as a black The ability to give that that offense, another opportunity to get them to get the ball back into the score. And so that's what you need. Sometimes you know that you can't put it all on one side of the ball. You have to play complementary football. And the Raiders were able to do that last night. Let's talk a little bit about coaching. I don't think the coaching one this football game I like Jon Gruden. I think he's a great guy. I'll say he's a good coach. Not sure he's worth $100 million contract. That's another story. Maybe I'll ask you that a little bit. But you know they this is what confuses me, Scott. Maybe you could help me out. With this 2nd and 92 more downs. They have plenty of time to kick a field goal. And they bring the field goal unit on it doesn't seem like they know what they're doing. There is confusion, and then they get a penalty. They lose five yards. They say, Oh my gosh, We might be kind of out of field goal range, and then you know, Derek Carr gets back on the field. That's not on the players. That's on the coaching step. I just feel like there were a couple bone head coaching decisions There were. Maybe it wasn't even a decision of just they weren't making the decision fast enough. Could have cost him the football game. What are your thoughts on that? Yeah, That's an interesting one. I couldn't believe that and and after the game, I know you were at the press conference. Um and Rudin said, Look, we were trying to find the kicker. The kicker was over at the net. We couldn't get him on the field at the right time. And you're right. That goes to coaching staff that goes to your special teams. Which sake? Who's a A long time. He's the associate head coach. Not having your guys ready was a weird situation and and certainly could have cost him because on that next play, Derek Carr gets back then what? Right then you're looking at a whole different situations. So I think there was a lot of rust on this team I expected on offense frankly, because that offensive line is rebuilt. But a lot of inexperienced guys a lot of second string trying to make the jump off, including Andre James Center, who struggled. Let's face it for most of the game, but came up big in the end. And so, yeah, I think there was there's There's some concern there. Look, it's one game. Everybody should bask in the glory that was This overtime win, But a lot of the concerns that we brought up during the preseason, I think still remain, and there was lots to see how they address it. But the coaching listen to coaching was uneven. At times. I do think I have to give Jon Gruden credit on the play calling on offense, especially in that fourth quarter, But let's face it, Derek Carr. If you if you watched the game, he audibled out of many calls, which is a credit to him, and he made the right call. Because obviously, the Raiders were able to drive down and score at the end of the game, of course. And over time, you know, a couple a couple things that I was concerned with in the offseason was was one. You know you lost Rodney Hudson. The offensive line has a players have been taken off the offensive line. You have you have Kolton Miller? First round pick you've got you Can you know that stage? You've got a couple of players that are that are coming back. You traded? You know, Trent Brown is back with the Patriots now. The last night, the Raiders gave up three sacks. Seven QB hits How Do you think the offensive line play? Did they play up the expectation, considering what they lost? You know, I thought they did pretty good guys. I wouldn't have said that in the first half. I thought in the first half, of course, Denzel Good goes down early with an injury, which which did not help Alex Leatherwood, the rookie out. Alabama played pretty well until that costly penalty obviously down at the one yard line at the end of regulation or overtime. Excuse me when they were trying to win the game. But other than that, I thought they came on in the second half. There's still a lot of question marks there..

Sweet, A legit football stadium, not the patch Mahal they built out an angle would Legendary legendary first game last night shades of 2016 lucky or not, probably the most impressive performance I've seen from a Raider defensive in probably five years swarm, tackling collapsing the pocket, forcing two turnovers out of a talent like Lamar Jackson both ended up as touchdowns. How unrated like is that but you've got to be lucky to be good. Couple of notes fan smack Nice to see our quarterback get through his his preseason in the first quarter before you could totally think our defense and by the way, that's dudes 22nd fourth quarter comeback if you need them. I'm a little concerned with the offensive line, especially at center. I mean God dang it. Andre James was like Keystone Cop trying to direct plays Campbell through traffic. Why would you give up a Pro bowl or like Rodney Hudson for that, you know, But you know, it's just business. And the offensive line is Tom cables, Business and dude has earned the benefit of doubt and nice guy debut. Last night by Outland Trophy winner Alex Leatherwood cables. Latest protege. Quick shout out to my Man cornerback Nate Hobbs, whose name was not called once last night. I guess that's a good thing.

Apologies there. The jobs had me a little busy working that Sun tan in the Kuwaiti desert and its epic to be back in on a victory Tuesday. You know, I was in Vegas this summer, and toward that place, I toured the death star. Beautiful cribs. Sweet, A legit football stadium, not the patch Mahal they built out an angle would legendary legendary first game last night shades of 2016 lucky or not? Probably the most impressive performance I've seen from a Raider defensive and probably five years swarm, tackling collapsing the pocket, forcing two turnovers out of a talent like Lamar Jackson both ended up as touchdown. How unrated like is that but you've got to be lucky to be good. Couple of notes fan smack. Nice to see our quarterback Get through is his preseason in the first quarter before you could totally think our defense and by the way, that's dudes 20 seconds, fourth quarter comeback if you need them. I'm a little concerned with the offensive line, especially at center. I mean God dang it. Andre James was like Keystone top trying to direct plays Campbell through traffic. Why would you give up a Pro bowl or like Rodney Hudson for that, you know, But you know, it's just business. And the offensive line is Tom cables, Business and dude has earned the benefit of doubt and nice guy debut. Last night by Outland Trophy winner Alex Leatherwood cables. Latest protege. Quick shout out to my Man cornerback Nate Hobbs, whose name was not called once last night. I guess that's a good thing. Another legendary game from the silver and black bands back franchise that leads the league in all time. Legendary games. It wasn't the holy roller, but we will take it. That's all I got Short and sweet, Like Kinky baby says in and out heartburn Rake Raider Nation, baby. Just go.

"Thirty eight and coming off a series achilles injury. Andre james is the projected starting center here but a hundred and sixteen snaps as a rookie in two thousand nineteen graded out the worst center in the league. He was two times worst in the second worst. Qualifying senators played one. Snap last season even if you look at his preseason work. He hasn't graded out a plus center against second and third stringers. Now i do think there could be hope for and pass protection. But i'm not comfortable on j james as my starting center denzel. Good is now the starting right guard. He's been reliable backup for years but he finally saw an expanded role last year. Almost a thousand snaps motions career. He's below average in both run in pass. Blocking colton. miller is solid. He's definitely improving his coming off as best season. But you know. His best season is the thirty six best tackle in the league last year. The raiders clearly reached on alex. Leatherwood what i do think especially in run blocking maybe rejuvenates. The raiders outside zone runs. But there's they're serious question. Marks here and the raiders project to face a top five schedule pass rushing defensive lines. Nobody truly knows what's going on. With the receiving core past darren waller and hunter renfro. What are you getting outside with brian. Words and henry rocks. And you follow this team closer than i do. Because they're in your backyard todd but for two years. All the hype in camp in practice has been brian. Edwards highlight type catches comparisons to moss. And terrell owens. Let's see translates when the lights are on. I mean he played in eleven games. Last year only had eleven catches we know henry. Rugs has an elite trait. The speed is undeniable. Kenny actually turn into a real receiver in year. Two of the full offseason. It's extremely difficult. I was looking at these numbers this morning to have a seventeen point three yard aid dot but only register one point three yards per outrun. It's it's lots of wind. Sprints and aimless running going on there from henry rug so far and so what we saw last year gruden basically went out and signed john brown as well and it's his insurance policy. Frogs can't do it. John brown basically becomes this year's nelson aguilar gruden's mind play calling in the red zone is an area that needs to improve when space shrunk gruden. Hasn't really done nearly the the same work that he was able to do. Between the twenty s. That's the one area. Where xs and os gruden's struggled a little bit raiders. Were the only top ten offense overall to finish bottom ten in the red zone. And we project the raiders to face a top three schedule of red zone. Defenses this season and it really doesn't stop there. Tie the raiders. Offense projects the phases schedule defense's top ten and overall efficiency passing defense. Pass rush defense and third down defense this year. Well i mean it's a good thing pain when you talk about the raiders. And what they did it off this off season completely retooled offensive line as you mentioned trading three extremely valuable pieces spending five and a half million dollars a year on a backup running back although everyone may or may not love the drake at this point knowing josh jacobs's trend it down. You mentioned john brown. You bring in willie snead just as though this team you know wants to try and go after certain pieces that may not fit into the greater overall agenda of what they want to accomplish. One player that. I don't think we touch and if we did. I apologize because i overlooked at their best player on the offense. Darren waller joined an elite class. A tight ends with one hundred catches and over eleven hundred yards one hundred seven catches last year third. Most in a season and nfl tight hissed at nfl. History amongst tight ends clearly. This offense has not been the issue pain because they have a defense. That's downright pathetic ranking thirtieth in the league last year in points per game allowed. And i was blown away. That the raiders have ranked in the bottom half and scoring defenses over the last eighteen seasons. Even a blind squirrel can find a nut from time to time and crack into the top fifteen. But that hasn't been the case. For the raiders. Gus bradley comes in and replace paul gunter. Who was fired week. Fourteen last year. The raiders gave a franchise worst four hundred seventy eight points last season. They allow thirty plus points in ten out of sixteen games dubious distinction that tied them with the detroit. Lions macro max crosby. That's been one of the fines that this team can hang. Its hat on defensively. But you mentioned draft capital. Jonathan abram graded out is one of the league's worst safeties damon net towards the bottom of the barrel as far as defensive backs are concerned cleland. Feral don't get me started there. But you do bring in a number of guys yawning gakugei. Hopefully he can help to passers. Casey hayward might have been one of the more unheralded off season signings at two and a half million dollars a year. A guy that. I think both of us high on for what we'd seen in for all the criticism about alex leatherwood being reached the first round. Maybe the raiders were able to write to ship a little bit taking trevon out. Tcu in the second round with some good roi. Potentially there but raiders defensively pain. They're not even going to be average. Can they get inside the top twenty five. This season for points per game point a blind squirrel. Finding a nut is a very good analogy for what transpired this weekend. By the way we can get into that at the end and then you can take your shot's no no it's fine. No hey defense for the rangers. This is our running running. I'm gonna let you take your shot at the end so you're gonna lose your opportunity but you can take the shots at the end. If you're if you so choose that was it. It was an inside joke that no one needed to know by. May i may share that info with sharon. Today you're sharing today. Sharing is caring. Twenty twenty one. So gus bradley. You know reunites with gruden. They spent the last few years of green stint and tampa together. I believe gus was the linebackers coach towards the end. There in two thousand six seven and eight before gruden got shit canned. You're looking at gus bradley's history here and to me it's not great. He was obviously credited. With devising the the cover three defense that seattle used all those years. And i think we've hit on that and how it doesn't really work unless you have an elite secondary that multiple and when you have the legion of boom great bought that talent level isn't commonplace for ninety nine point nine. Nine percent of secondaries both past and present and seattle didn't actually win a super bowl until after gus bradley left and then we saw bradley. Get hired in jacksonville. As the head coach he was there for four years from two thousand thirteen to two thousand. Sixteen his defenses finished. Thirtieth twenty-first twenty fifth and fifteenth and efficiency..

"I know that you're jonas artisan spot where they very much like him and they trust him. And i think that's the biggest thing with that position you've got to be able to trust that guy and they know those running backs that people don't ever think about it but the running backs are really the last line of defense against the pass rush. You don't want somebody out there that can pick up the blitz especially in their down situation. So that's what you're gonna look out with those guys. But i think they really impressed on the ground. I think they have done at the same in practice on trae with a ridiculous juke. A spin move on dallin levitt the other day that broke his ankles a whole. That the whole you know sideline jumping so are those impressive camp. But it's it's all about how they try much. Trust them in the passing game. And the other thing jim in charlotte. Listen this is not. It's not a minor thing. Look around the league. And you're hearing you know. Vaccination might be the tiebreaker and a lot of cases So if you're looking at two guys that are of equal potential value in one has a big cap. It like not a big it but for a guy in that position of fairly substantial Salary and is not vaccinated. it could come into play. So it's definitely something to monitor. Cindy gruden cindy gruden back. We're back you know really quickly. That's a great point by adam. Because here's the thing. It's a young offensive line in spots. So they're going to struggle sometimes in the passing game in terms of protecting car. Such a great point batum because you cannot have a young offense of our initiative inexperience off the sign in spots. And then not have a guy who can't pick up the blitz so that's a bad combination so adams right they i'm sure they trust jalen rashard so eight off your dreams. You probably need to keep doing that stuff as well. Other than just kinda scoring touch and all back into say listened to the to the sound bite from grew about those is. He was obviously very impressed yet. But noticed one thing. He said they picked up the blitz. They're watching and that's what they're noticing so. I'm not saying they can't do it. It's going to be about what that film shows and how they do that. The next couple of i wanted to talk to you briefly touch on this but the inexperienced offensive line coming together playing a little bit for the first time. We didn't see you know all of them in full series. But we saw a little bit arrives with like andre. James alex leatherwood. What did you think about those guys in their performance tonight. I you know. I thought they were finding the first the first quarterback adam said it's a it's an exhibition game. I don't think they you know. I don't think nate. Nate peterman got killed So it's just so hard to gauge things in an exhibition this. What if they're playing against twos and threes I you know what. I think. I think we should to make more determination on weight. Sue jon gruden says disease. Even said i gotta watch the tate. He kind of you know paused on that kind of question..

"He's he's a very good player. So that one okay. Gave jackson is not what he was early in his career. But i still think solid um so. I think they're downgrading both those positions Alex leatherwood has a chance to be a really good player. But i think it's gonna take some time for him especially as a pass protector. He's the first round right. Tackle very talented guy. But he's definitely a better run blocker than past protector and denzel good is definitely a better run blocker than pass protector. And he's taken over forgave jackson. And then they have andre james Or nick martin. Probably andre james. Both of them downgrade from rodney hudson. So they got worse you know. Probably a three positions They're left side is still rock. Solid in cole. Miller and richie incognito mean incognito thirty eight years old so the chances of him playing twelve or more games probably not great but when he's on the field who's very good still so there's just a lot of uncertainty here You know. I just think that they they definitely at least initially are gonna be You know one of the bottom. Ten units in the league andre. james dude hasn't even played. That has his career start. It seems like it seems like they're putting a lot of their eggs and tom cables basket to coach. These guys up. What do you think of that strategy. Well you know if he asked me what he was seattle's offensive line coach. We'd probably have a different conversation now. It's like you know you look at what he did with cole miller and guiding him along his development. I think that's a notch under his belt for sure. I mean i don't want to discredit him. There i wanna give him credit for that because colt miller's guy who's very raw coming out of ucla years just you know tested out of this world and had all the the measurable and everything. And now he's gotten his revamped his body. He stronger better with his technique. Whatever they did with colt miller was very impressive Whoever deserves that credit in the building. Tom cable should get some of it. So that to me encourages me. Most most of all with alex leatherwood kind of similar dynamic. I think Leatherwood is further along than colt. Miller was in some aspects but he does need some work So you know what his ability to to get a lot out of andre james and and denzel good i just i think denzel good is what he is. He's just a mauling. Big enormous human being is a steamroller type of guy. If you ask him to move laterally in you know deal with speed rushers is gonna be. It's not gonna be good. So i don't know how much he can really do for him. I'm very curious to see what he does. Andre james and how his development goes because you know having rodney hudson there. I think there's probably a pretty good chance. That hudson mast issues there or deficiencies cable. You know teaching ability or or lack thereof if there is. I don't know the intricate details of it but hudson is the type of center who is a force multiplier. He's a guy who's gonna make the guys next to him. Better is like brilliant you know. He's just he's just one of those guys who can really captain the line and hide a lot of you know of deficiencies. So it's gonna be really interesting to see them without without rodney hudson in. They're getting into the right protection at the right time. You know in all those kind of like intricate things Centers do So yeah. I'm i'm really concerned about that position. Probably more than anything. I want. get to listener questions. But i want to quickly go through overrated underrated because overrated unit. You have the washington football team at twenty fifth. I've seen some people say they really like this washington. Footba team offense mind. I was a little bit surprised. They didn't go offensive tackle in round one that go to the linebacker. Jimmy davis betting round two. They do take. Sam cosmi wondering what you think about watching football team and anybody else. You think it's over it because it seems like you think washington for team might be a little bit overrated. Yeah i'm not too sure what the consensus is on on them with other people I actually bumped up to twenty three though. I flip flop them in oakland or las vegas. So they're gonna be twenty three for the article But still that might be lower than than than others. I'm not sure and the reason for their ranking though for me it starts at the tackle position. Charles leno i think is a solid player and he's been reliable when he was in chicago and everything but certain certain pass rushers can give him a lot of trouble. Like power rushers And that concerns me It always has impact protection He's he's an undersized guy with good length and he he he's very aggressive but there's a lot of there's a lot of variance in his performance especially against the league competition. So that's why he's just a solid player and not much more than that. I think is more kind of like a band-aid there You know and then. Sam cosmi. Is mike comparison for him. Cole miller and my scouting report very similar coming out. You know tested out of this world has all the physical measurable and all that stuff. But i think has quite a quite a long way to go technique wise as a pass. Protector pass protector in particular. That worries me a little bit So i think there's going to be you know at least initially you know kind of a rocky road start for him. I think interior could be pretty good Brandon sheriff obviously Excellent player And i i like the competition that they have going left guard with eric. Flowers in west. Schweitzer who i think is an underrated player and i really liked their offensive line coach to. It's just for me. What brought him down as the tackle situation And i think that they're probably set up to be a better run blocking team the past blocking team at least initially until we get to see them together. Yeah any other overrated units wanna mention I think i'm a little bit down on the cardinals compared to some other people even though they got rodney hudson. You know that that was a huge addition. I i do think rodney hudson's on the tail end of his career. He's outside of his prime especially physically. I mean mentally..

"A lot of faith in him to be able to to step into some shoes on the. Oh line and a lot of people have been drawing. Darren waller comparisons to him and in that sense. I mean and the respect that the raiders got to see. Darren waller for glimpses Just prior to the year that he became a starter so with that being said how much faith do you have in andrei james being able to fill the big shoes. That rodney hudson left behind. I'm not gonna. I'm not going to sugarcoat it. I don't feel great about it to be honest. Because i don't know what andre james's if it's it's it's to your point if anybody said they knew what darren waller was before darren waller was what he has. Now they'd be lying because there's just not enough the sample size james got into a couple of games. He played a little bit. He's moly came out as a guard so he's not even a true center. So it's really really. It's almost impossible to say. Look i'll take the coaches stance on it. And if they're high on them you have no choice but to be high on him. He's got a call out the defense. Now he's got to develop the relationship. Derek carr he's got to develop the relationship with the guards and you hope that he could just put on his shoulders and run with it. But it's a it's a tough transition. It's a tough like we sat tough shoes to fill and pro bowl. Guy like rodney hudson but centers nine an easy position to play. You have a lot of things going on. you've got gotta be a cerebral guy. You have your head on the swivel most time so it. It's really tough to say. I wouldn't be doing a justice. I sit here and say that andre james is going to be at level hudson. He needs to be at the level of rodney hudson because he was so good he needs to be just a stabilizing force and not let know the rest of the allied suffer because he's struggling because if that's the case but that's why like signing mcmartin nick. Martin is started a lot of football games in national football league. So if you get into training camp and andrea james struggling a little bit. Maybe andre james shifts over the guard. Put nick martin at center and you have guide a you have a guy. That's played senator national football league so if they didn't sign a guy like nick martin. I'd be really really worried about it. But would a veteran on the football team that you hope for the best one hundred james and of the coaching staff is right and this guy is going to be a star than the raiders had hit the jackpot again. Speaking hitting the jackpot. I wanna get your take on somebody that another guy i was. Not anticipating that the raiders. It'd be taking a look at during agency and that name is kenyan drake. I thought they might look for somebody else. Maybe a little bit more low budget. Let's say somebody that wasn't as costly as kenyan drake would be to the team But what does this do for the run game. When you look at what jon gruden has done in the past always kind of a two headed attack at the in the backfield. And he's done in the past with the raiders. He did it with tampa bay. And now we're going to maybe see that. Would drake and jacob shaking out in the backfield together. So what do you see when you look at those two up in the backfield. Let's not put this any other way. This kenyan drake was a gruden shiny new toy. Offseason in couldn't have you know he couldn't have the poor she couldn't have the lamborghini probably wanted to top one of the top wide receivers and something like that to go on his offense. Because that's just how jon gruden roles but kenyan drake is at nice little chesapeake. Said he can move around. And it's probably a lot of money on everybody's freaking out about the money but it's not a lot for guys can contribute. We all love josh. Jacobs as raider fans we see josh. Shaka's we see how good he is at times. I get mad when he's off the field but we we've seen over the past couple years jacobs inability to play all sixteen games. He gets nicd up. He runs really hard. Kenyan drake is going to be a guy that's going to be look what they did with devante booker last year. Devante booker was in every third. Set downs for this football team and he contributed you. Expect that a lot from kenyan drake. Kenny drake's split out moore's receiver. You can have them in motion and slots think about the kansas city chiefs. Do with a lot of guys. And i'm not saying kenyan. Drake is like tyreek hill. Or anybody like that. But i think he's a piece to this offense defenses have to respect jacobs's in the backfield and you split out four wide and kenyan drake is in the slot. He's going to be covered by linebacker. Maybe a safety something like that. You can get matchup nightmares. I don't look at kenyan drake as a backup running back. Kenyan drake is a coal running back. And that's not a shot at josh jacobs to say that josh shakeups is not a guy that's capable. Josh jacobs is hundred percent. Guy that's capable. Who gets better as the game goes on but with kenyan drake about match ups in the national football. It's about jon. Gruden run in his offense. And if you're gonna roll with the original role with henry ruggs bryan edwards john brown and these guys and hunter renfrow. You're gonna want a piece like kenyan drake on the field a lot. So that doesn't mean he's going to get more touches than josh jacobs. I just think it's a nice complimentary piece if you're going to go out there and spend big money on a receiver. You're going to go a little average. John brown bring him in who i love. I think is going to be really good for this football team. I like the ability for kenyan drake to come in here not only as a running back. Not only to split out right passes. I love him on third down. I don't know what that means to gentlemen rashard. Maybe he is the guy that's on. This football team comes up timber. But i love kenny. Drake's ability to catch the ball at a backfield. I think he's going to be a nice weapon for this offense. Yeah he's just mentioned. John brown the name there. And how under the radar is that because he spent a lot of the last season injured Not as much visibility from what he's capable of was seen. I mean i think when you start looking at the past seasons when he's been with other teams that he's done really well for himself in different positions on. I think that they needed to fill the shoes. The agholor left behind and that he is very much going to fit into the offense. The way i think al gore did what's your take on his signing. I agree i mean. I tweeted this out When they signed brown people when when they signed nelson agla last year. I was to be honest. I was pissed. This guy drops everything. He's going to be a disaster. Why they wasting their time. So i feel higher on a guy. John brown coming in this offseason. Who's establishing the league. The one knock on john brown as he does get hurt. He's not the biggest guy in the world he gets. You know thing does from time to time when he's on the field. He's productive use productive in arizona productive with josh allen in buffalo. He's not a guy is going gonna catch one hundred passes. He's not that type of guy but he's a big play guy. He's durable what. I love about john brown as he's a really good route runner he can come in here and help guy like henry ruggs. Show him how to run around. Show him how to run a big row sham. How to run a slant. The way that jon gruden wants it run into national football league. Henry ruggs struggle last year with route running struggle. Getting off the line of scrimmage. He struggled with some running and that's why he wasn't getting targeted as much. So i like john brown if he could stay healthy like him as a mentor for For henry ruggs.

"Heidi fame house jacksonville jaguars and we played last game coliseum and you can just tell you guys like end wallers you got Jacobs you've got car. You got the guy that was just a rookie. You know so They have they have a great offense here man and they're dirty. Put that together now. It's time for the defense side of the ball to help that often side out a lot. You know what i mean so it just goes back to what i said earlier. You got like max We just signed quinton. We just signed solomon and Those guys Those guys that can rush when you put on tape those guys that play physical football and with our mindsets together and just being able to bounce information and ideas off each other. It should be a lot of plays made this year coming up. Welcome everybody to the takeaways. Addition of the vegas podcast. I'm your host. heidi fang. And today i'm going to be joined by siriusxm main producer the guy in charge nfl things. That's eddie silly. He also has his own podcast yards per attempt. Podcast check that out so everybody first of all before we get going into here with the raiders. The free agency the salary cap. All those mind numbing numbers that we're trying to figure out what they mean. and how. They affect the raiders in twenty twenty. One we're going to break it down with eddie but first of all. Don't forget to subscribe wherever you are listening. And we are brought to you by the las vegas review journal and also presented to you by blue wire podcasts. Right off the top there. You heard from unique and gakugei. That's how we're going to be pronouncing his name but he also said that you can call them yawn if you're interviewing him so just in case anybody ever runs into him. You can yawn. He signed my helmet anyway but he was there talking about what his impact will be on the raiders. And as you can see in. Free agency the raiders. Have been signing d. lineman after d. lineman here to the roster from solomon thomas to matt dickerson. The raiders are making waves here in free agency and eddie is going to break all of that down with us and throughout the show. You're going to hear from the different. Siamese as we are able to get them from the raiders. All of that here on this takeaways edition of the vegas nation. Podcasts so buckle up strap in we're about to get into it here. Eddie i and will continue down the road hearing from some of these. Newly signed raiders. Right all right as promised right now. Joining me from sirius. Xm radio and also from the yards per attempt. Podcast it's eddie silly back on the show. Eddie how're you doing today. Heidi it's always a pleasure to be with you excited to do it again. We got free agency. We got the draft and less than forty days. And it's an exciting time for all our football fans out there for those who don't know eddie is the executive producer of nfl radio over there at serious so your head must be spending right now. I mean always like you said always a busy time. It's always a busy busy time. Free agency we just got clearance to go to the draft so excited we'll be you last year. Obviously we missed it with everything going on with covert and all that stuff. So we're going to be in. Cleveland live in cleveland. So i'm excited to get out of the house and bb. There had to draft in person. See all the prospects will be. It's going to be fun. I'm hoping to get in there as well. I just threw in my proposal today to be like. Hey guys let me play and you you gotta you gotta have everything buttoned up nowadays. Not just as easy as i. Just put a credential in. It's gotta have this and health checks and all this and you gotta dot a lot of is across a lot of ts before he could do stuff unfortunately. Yeah so we will see if that comes through for me. I keep my fingers crossed. Maybe i get to see you in person yet again. let's get into it eddie because like you said there's so much going on from free agency to the raider signing so the release in fact. I think we should call it. The re-signed restructure release podcast and talk about all of these reshuffle. Yeah reshuffle so i would get into some of the re signings wasa players coming back. Some things were done to kind of help. Free up some money here in free agency. A richie incognito. Being one example of that he was released that freed up about five point four million and then he was resigned to the raiders. Two point six two million so a little bit a lesser money there but it frees up. Some cap obviously denzil goods another one but he. He upped his anti he got in eighteen years and eight point three six so with as much movement has been happening right now on this offensive line with hudson. Beane traded with Gave jackson being traded at What do you think is going on here. With that ole line and how it's going to shake out it's really weird if you pinned any raider fan any. Nfl fan down. Before the off season. I think the one thing we took to the bank was rodney hudson plains center for the las vegas raiders and twenty twenty one and come to be that rodney obviously was unhappy being here for as many years as he was not winning and all that kind of stuff. There's probably some stuff that goes on behind the scenes but that was really a shocker. To me. I always knew that. John had a i want to say a problem with trent brown but trenches was never available as year was was how much time he missed. And you know he's making fourteen million dollars. You could just see the writing on the wall that a guy like trent brown was going to be around for the raiders next year. And i i put it out there early on about jackson. You know getting up there close to thirty years old again. He has a cap number about ten million dollars. So that was a guy targeted to that. They can go after and and cut or release and get some money but the hudson thing kind of blew everything up it. It just took the raiders offensive line takeout colt miller. Who's over there. The left side and kinda just shot it into the stratosphere and everybody started. The biggest pet peeve i had is the national media. Everybody kinda ran whip that. The raiders were decimating. They're all line like getting rid of every single star but they're really not you're going to bring record gene cognito. That started a couple of games last year. Denzel goods coming back like you said john. Simpson's there so the interior the off the flight is still there. Really high on a guy like andre james. I'm not gonna sit here and say that andre james is going to be rodney hudson. Nobody's rodney hudson. If we watch raider games and people listening to this podcast for sure have watched raider games. You know how. Good rodney hudson is. Andre james is going to have to fill some big shoes in with them. They have a major hole now at right tackle. So i think there's some right tackles on the market. You got a guy like mitchell schwartz if you were able to sign him away from the kansas city chiefs. I think that'd be great for this football team but you're probably looking towards the draft so the line has a lot of moving parts. I trust shot tom. Cable to kind of put them together. They all signed martin. The former senator the texans. He could play guard as well. So i'm not as concerned with the offensive line. I know it's probably shot that they're a car a little bit losing so many guys. So many starters but be honest gave jacksonville last two years ago. He missed missing time at injury. And trent brown was never available. So you really only replacing rodney hudson. But that's a big asked to replace because rodney was so good for so long for this football team. So i feel as good about the offensive line. I did coming into the off season but a lot of the rationale is jon. Gruden basically saying this team hasn't what we put a lot of money into the offensive line for years and years and years and a team still hasn't won so maybe it's time to reshuffle. Use that money in different directions. And maybe you could have a better solid football team. Moving.

"Not there lamar maybe markey's brown emerges as as a force next year and mark andrews and end up being third in the pecking order there Which he might be in pittsburgh anyway but yeah not not not the choice. I would have made but not my choice to make. No one wanted to sign me this offseason. so yeah me. Neither rough disappointing. Let's let's hope about the raiders. And what's what's going on there. I am going to start this with an impassioned defense of jon gruden and then you can tear it down. I'm going to log off you. Guys later i'll say this it's not going to be an impassioned defense but i will say this. In general i think a lot of people wringing their hands over losing ultimately end up being trade so they'd bring back draft picks for ronnie hudson engage jackson. And you a lot of people running their hands over a young this offense a line that sort of got taken apart here. I think this offense of line has been quite overrated over the last five years. I think it's been a good line. I don't think it's a great line. I think those guys were aging. I think if maybe one of those moves was made we. Would you know. Raise your eyebrows a little bit and then sort of go on with your life. The fact that it sort of came in clumsier is a little more alarming. We'll say that. But i think there were a couple of years where i call it. The donald penn affect donald penn was a solid. Left tackle for the raiders. He was touted because his numbers are so good. He was touted as his franchise. Y'all foundational piece for the raiders. Where he just wasn't the reason they don't give up any sacks with this team is derek targets of all out so quickly now that's changed a little bit over the last couple of years with gruden coming in and putting in something a little more forward thinking then sort of the the pure quick strike stuff they were doing under todd downing but it was not particularly challenging to pass protect for derek carr over the years and i think people sorta got these numbers skewed. I mean rodney. Hudson was a really really good center. I don't know if you are really having to drop off that people think they're going to have with them. And they what they like their guy andre james and we're going to find out whether the right or not..

"And I know that's part of what drives you doing what you do. Especially inside that you seal a program because you whether it's gymnastics, whether it's you know, basketball, whatever sport it is, whatever athlete you're talking about. You're finding out something internal that you know you're gonna be able to share with your audience and let them personalize that relationship with that athlete or with that coach. Or with that, you know somebody involved in the administration. Whatever it is, because somebody's always got a story. There's no question about it can and I bring up another one. Andre James. Former instance of linemen for U C L. A. He's now on the Oakland Excuse me, You know him. He was He's on the Las Vegas Las Vegas Raiders and was drafted. No, he was undrafted. I should say, but he was picked up by then Oakland and stayed with the team. But here was a guy a former Bruin on the offensive line. Andre jeans with the Raiders. Who While he was at U C L A is dad. Guided cancer. And his God was based in Utah. And that's where he was from the family and less than a week after his dad passed. Less than a weekend. I mean, this is within days. Andre is playing a football game for U C L A. Like He doesn't take any time off. He doesn't take it in, and everybody on the team would understand all the coaches, his teammates. Sit this one out, man, you're grieving, but he did not want to miss a game. Could you knew that his dad Like he wanted to find a way to channel his love for his father in by playing even how hard it hurt the point he was dealing with with his father in which just passed away. He played that game. I don't know how I could have done that kid. I mean, I'll be honest with you. I lost my dad from cancer when I was 16 years old, and I was a mess for years and meant much therapy afterwards. And so maybe that's help. To imagine playing a power Five football game in conference in the dawn could threaded Pac 12 and your dad dies less than a week. Are you playing a football game in your starting on the offensive line is you have the focus to play in that game. It takes a special person to do that can and I just want to give a moment. Tol hail Andre James for That because he was so open about his own struggles and how he would spend so much time with his dad in the hospital and just Housing human Remembering those good times and his father's battle. Unfortunately, ended and Andre went from a guy that went undrafted to making a livelihood in the NFL. And I just think we need to command a guy like that. Yeah, I love people like that. Those are special stories. Andre James, part of Raider Nation now. Will touch on another Bruin part of Raider Nation in just a minute, But a couple live reads that I do with Dr John Pearce. He's got two practices here and one you mentioned your dad with, you know the cancer. When you're 16 and I went over Preventative diagnostic Center, which is here in town where they've actually got a machine, Brian, that actually scans all your organs. So if you have on each size a cancer in any of your organs Of a grain of rice or bigger. It's gonna detect it and give you an opportunity. Tiuna attack it aggressively and you know, before you find out, you have stage four cancer. Unfortunately, A lot of people.
