"News for the branch family and raider fans including myself that have been clamoring for the og of speed receivers to should be in the hall of fame. Branch was a three time super bowl. Champion who put together several memorable postseason moments in the silver and black. It's taken way too long. But it sounds like brom bus will finally have a place to say in canton. Ohio victory for dropped a story on monday morning. That certainly had raiders twitter winning wild according to one a taper sources gruden and company reached out the chicago bears about potentially trading for khalil. Mack this offseason for anyone who's had their head buried in the sand over the last few years. The coach infamously traded the pass. Rusher for a couple first round picks. That would eventually turn into running back. Josh jacobs and cornerback damodar net. It was no secret that las vegas was looking for a pass rusher this off season and according to taper grew new. The bears were looking for some salary. Cap beliefs so. He picked up the phone and gave ryan pace and matinee call. Obviously gruden's offer was to climb in the team went on to sign janaka gakuen free agency instead. I don't if this happened. Especially since it's coming from fiqh but i do think this is probably not as big of a deal. That seems what i imagine happened was not much more than a single phone call just to do some research and see if the bears would budge and then when they didn't that was the end of it one thing that did strike me on significance. That tayfur pointed out. Is that the fact that gruden was willing to swallow his pride and potentially face immediate backlash for trading for mac back and it goes to show just how much the coach doesn't care about his reputation and just wants to make the playoffs. One of the cygnus facing gruden since his return to the raiders is that he has too big of an ego so it was a good sign to see that. He's willing to put that aside and do what's best for the team. It's become an annual offseason tradition. Where the nfl network releases. The list of the league's top. One hundred players voted on by the players. And a couple of raiders made the cut this year running back. Josh jacobs the team's first appearance on the list. Coming in at number sixty eight. He surpassed a few notable names like saints wide receiver. Michael thomas and vikings linebacker kendricks while also finishing just behind linebacker k. J. right and cardinals defensive end. Jj watt who sixty seventh and sixty six respectively on darren waller with the other raiders to make the cut landing on the thirty fifth spot on the list while it beat out forty nine or side. End towards kittle. Who came in at number fifty and waller currently is the highest rank tight end on however the nfl network is releasing the top. Ten on saturday and travis chelsea's name has yet to be called so while there will likely finish this. The second highest ranked player at his position atop thirty five ranking and being ranked the second best player at your position is certainly nothing to scoff at though and hopefully he'll we moving up the list and eventually take over that number one spot quarterback derek carr and defensive ends janaka kakuei. Max crosby are probably the three. Most notable raiders not make the top one hundred this year raiders digital team reported levi edwards. Recently got to sit down and get to know rookie right. Tackle alex leatherwood edwards the peeled back the curtain on leatherwood revealed that the rookie likes to read as a little bit nerdy and prefers to be a quiet leader with an introverted personality. We linked article in one of our civil mining species pieces this week. And it's up. Now on the raiders team website. When they get a chance you should definitely give read to get to know a little bit more about the man underneath the helmet. All right time for my favorite part of the show. A little preview of the game against the san francisco forty niners on sunday earlier this week. Forty niners head coach. Kyle shanahan indicated that a lot of the starters will see some action against the raiders. That's been pretty consistent for san francisco this month. Seeing starting quarterback for now jimmy garoppolo has played in the teams other. Two preseason contests. It's also the exact opposite strategy. Las vegas us in fact offensive coordinator. Greg olsen even said this week that. There's a high risk and low reward to playing your top quarterbacks in the preseason and yes that's quarterbacks plural which tells me renegade get four more quarters nathan peterman on sunday now. I'll do the same thing as last week and give you guys five players. I have my eye on this weekend. And i'll be in the press box this week. Tweeting out any updates. The first player will be watching. This cornerback amick robertson. Robertson's played well so far. He's only allowed twenty receiving yards and a passer rating of eighty six point one when targeted any boasts impressive. Eighty point nine overall. Pf grade miss tackles. Were an issue for him last year but so far in the preseason he's zero and actually ranks tied for third among cornerbacks with three defensive stocks and coverage grew mentioned robertson. Looks more comfortable on the outside. This press conference this week stating as outside corner. You can see what he is. You see the skill set that he has. He's played better. He's got more confidence not that. It can't be a nickel. Because he's worked in there but he's clearly at home on the outside now. Robinson will be tested this week as he's going against rookie trae lance who has a canon for an arm and has a special connection with wide receiver. Trent sherfield those two combined for an eighty are touchdown in the first preseason game and a forty one yard bomb and game two. So i'm sure they're going to be looking to connect on a few more bombs this sunday and hopefully robertson's ready and got his pf flyers on. Because he's going to have to run moving on a number two and that's going to be linebacker..

"What's your reaction to the raiders. Calling the bears getting khalil. Mack back or as we got this report from the athletic you may recall that. The raiders traded khalil mack. To the bears they got a couple of first round picks back for that first round picks turned into josh. Jacobs was pretty good damodar net. That's funny color hair. I think that's the one that that he is either way goes. It seemed to work out pretty well for the bears khalil. Mack wanted defensive player of the year award. He's still one of the most dominant pass rushes in the lee. And now we hear that. The raiders might want him back like they did the whole ralph connor kind of thing when they traded him week and finishing. Last with your we can finish. It lasts without you. But what are you going to use to actually get him back given that what you got for him. You did not actually turn into that much. If you're the bears the laugh when that call comes in right or you try to come up with a way that you could absolutely rob them and get all the picks that they're going to have in the future. Because maybe you could treat jon gruden into doing that. What in the world is he doing down there in terms of personnel in front office stuff. That's been the biggest question. Because as a coach i feel like he's adjusted to this. Nfl better than i expected him to. I have to give him some measure of credit for that but the moment they had the number four pick and they took the third best out of the three clemson defensive lineman who were in that draft we looked around and we just kind of like is this guy knows what he's doing and i still don't have an answer for that. Well it can be different levels of embarrassing. I think if you look at it. It's not quite as embarrassing when you say okay. They were rebuilding. Obviously mac was a star defensive player. Like you said we'll finish last with you. We'll finish last without you. But they didn't trade him because they were going to finish unless they traded him because they literally could not afford him. They couldn't that the franchise was in that position. They could not afford the guy so it's like all right. Let's go ahead. And trade you guests on assets back and rebuild and that says yeah. Maybe not as embarrassing until you consider. How can you not afford him. You are an nfl team. You're the raiders. You should be able to purchase or by anybody's contract or pay for anybody so that part is also embarrassing and then there's a part where okay look. You did your job. You rebuilt a little bit. You got a good team and now you need you know another pass rusher go after anybody else anybody else khalil mack. And maybe it won't be that embarrassing. Don't go asking for him back. You can't do that to that point i believe. Derek carr was on chris collins podcast because everybody has podcast now and i think he said that they thought that he was going to sign khalil. Mack that it was confusing. He thought that the money was being moved around that he was going to be signed. So it's interesting to me and like you said bow and like you said izzy when they when he makes decisions like that gruden or anybody in the front office at the raiders. We are all kind of like this. Sounds not smart. But maybe it'll prove to be smart. And i feel like going back and asking for the guy back. The second you need to fill. That position is proof that maybe wasn't smart. I'm not saying necessarily that. It wasn't smart. I don't want anybody to be mad at me but it feels like that's proof. It's like saying we broke up. And i thought about it and you are actually the greatest and i want to get back together with you. It's like you don't go back. You've got to pursue other options in the goal is like you know i hope that they see you surviving and thriving with somebody else. That isn't them to admit that you went back and we're like you want to come back try again. It's like that's not enough. That's not enough to sell them. Because why did you let him go in the first place at or no just seems messy to may. Don't go back folks move forward. Here's why they're going to give them back. Because if you have a pass rusher as good as khalil mack. You don't trade him. Everybody in the league knows that. Except for you jon gruden. Do you share tom. Brady's optimism that twenty twenty one could be as best season yet aka. Tom brady you ever heard of him. He plays quarterback for the tampa. Bay buccaneers feel like it used to play fourteen somewhere around where you from anyway He was talking to peter king football morning in america column and he said that he could see twenty twenty one being his best season. He didn't say it was going to be as best easy to make some bold prediction about it. He said that he could see. It'd be impossible now. I do not think it is possible. Because i just don't think you can get back to be in two thousand seven. Tom brady. which is the best version that we have ever seen so right. This is a slight to him. This is praise for how good he is bid at his absolute maximum but see. I never get this right like for the last seven years. I've been getting this wrong making this basic. What i think is obvious statement. Which is you just can't keep expecting old people to play like young people. It's unfair to him. It's unfair to everybody else. At some point you hit the wall and you hit the wall hard. Brett farve is i you went to. Vikings was as good as he had ever been and then the wheels came off completely the next season. We don't know what is going to come necessarily but it typically happens and it comes fast. What that means is in this job. You can make the decision to roll the dice to try to be the person to get out ahead of tom. Brady be sorry. And i tried that in twenty fourteen and they won the super bowl and i never do it again. So all i'm saying is anything is possible. Just like i was just about to say it seems like you're calling it again. It seems like we're just running tape from two thousand fourteen. But i mean everybody could say that i think everybody in two thousand fourteen. Probably said hey. I think his time might be coming up. Meanwhile he is now trying to be trying to win back to back super bowl. Who was the quarterback to win back to back super bowl. Same dude tom brady. And so if you're facing hair can recover and be as young as it is now. Why can't his game like if they protect him and they put all these weapons around him. I don't understand why he couldn't play or have one of his best seasons if not his best season of course all it takes is one guy to get through that line and injure him one. You know running attempt by. Tom brady to to ruin everything but i think if you keep them healthy and keep them protected. There's nothing that this guy can't do with this town rounded. When i first saw red panda take a bowl and put it on her foot and flip it up onto a stack of bowls on her head. I was like there's absolutely no way that is possible and it was. She did it then. She did it over and over and over again. What i learned from that situation is that like if people show you. They can do something who were. You'd underestimate them. So i'm going to say. Tom brady can play till he's fifty five until he shows me something that says that he can't unfortunately for me and my well being i believe he's going to keep playing incredibly well in potentially winning super bowls and i'm super super super happy for him three times you say super and it sounds a lot more convincing. I'm super happy for him. But i will say if we're going to do you know one of those investigations into things that people like to do to bring down people who are on top. Maybe doing investigation into tom brady to see if he wasn't fac replaced by a robot. Because it doesn't make any logical sense as i near thirty five and my body starts to feel like a completely different body i understand. I don't take as meticulous care of it as tom brady does. But it's wild to me. That is body still feels good doing things that my body never felt good doing. It's very frustrating. But i'm super super super happy for him up next on. Hq this was the bad break for her one of the last time you tuned in to a race to see a person and that person that step heart was tough at their skins..

"And i'm going to keep the other side of the fan base happy on this part of the show and talk about what to expect if he does end up saying with the team. One of the talk surrounding the backup quarterback this off season is how gruden apparently has a special package set up for him in the playbook. Now i'm not expecting gruden a completely play his hand on the preseason but it will be nice to at least taste to see how he's gonna use marietta during the regular season. The fourth guy of keeping my eye on saturday is going to be cornerback. Daymond net now. I talked to beginning of the show. About how the rams have quite a bit of depth that wide receiver. While i don't expect guys like uber cup. Robert woods into sean jackson play. They still have plenty of talent in that position with band. Jefferson and tutu. Atwell who i mentioned at the beginning of this show that means damon are net is going to be tested again and for a guy that's kind of had a rough off-season seeing as he's been demoted to the second string it's important for him to have a big game last week. It was only one play. But i thought it was a big one that damodar net gave up. He only played about fifteen snaps. And every single reps gonna count especially when you're back already against the wall and you're only playing that few snaps and it was about a third five seattle ran a drag route. David ornette does everything perfectly reads it and jumps the route and is in a great position to make a tackle short of the sticks but then he ends up. Missing the tackle and seattle ends up converting. I down again only one play and you did the majority of it right but when you're bass against the wall and you're already kind of on thin ice with the coaching staff. Those are the type of place need to make an. Hopefully he continues to make them or starts to make them. I should say on saturday. Round things out with center. Andre james. Who's really going to be a player to watch throughout the entire season. Which kind of comes with the territory replacing all pro center like rodney hudson. Now i thought james fair pretty well last week and pass protection. I don't think he gave up any pressures to my knowledge but he definitely struggled to create russia. He's in the running game. As i mentioned the beginning of the show. The rams impressive young nose. Tackle and bobby brown. Who's a force against the run. So james is going to be tested again. This week i think brown will get quite a bit of playing time for the rams this week. He missed the beginning of training camp with an injury. So i'm sure they wanna see what they have in him. And i wouldn't be surprised if he ends up going up against james and more see who i mentioned at the beginning of the show all right that will just about do it for today's show. Make sure you're following silver and black pride on twitter. If you're not already and of course make sure you fall on myself as well at 'em holder ninety five other than that until next time guys..

"So matter-of-fact like hey this happened. Hey by the way. Yeah exactly exactly. So but the point of the matter is he. He didn't play as well last year as he did. In the at the end when you look when you do some digging. It's very very interesting. Because he played like two hundred more snaps last year than he did in twenty nineteen and to me Affected his health a little bit at affected his stamina it perfected. It affected his performance. A little bit I think with max crosby. I think this is why the unique in gakugei signing was so big and why maybe they do have a chance to be a one of the better tandems in the league. Is i think now having unique in way you can use. If you're the raiders. Max crosby in a way that's probably better suited for him and also manages snap counts and so that at the end of the day whether you're talking about the end of games or later on in the season i think the raiders are going to be a much better position to have everybody at more full-throttle than just kind of having their tongues dragging on the on the ground because they played too much whether it's in a game Or the or the end of the season and so it it might not sit well necessarily with max. His role is probably going to be condensed a little bit. But i think in the long run. It's going to help him. And i think defensive coordinator goes bradley said the other day also he goes eight. We don't want to just send out one line. We want to send out to really good lines. We want to have multiple guys who can do multiple things at different times. And i think yeah they can play off of each other and i think max crosby this year right staying healthy i think he was slap in palm trees right last year during the season when he got corona virus again they can stay healthy on. That'll definitely be huge working with each other. At the end of the day you ask these guys are going to say. Hey i don't care about my personal Snaps their they want to do it as a team effort and that might be true. But i know these guys. You know selfishly. You don't wanna bump up there madden stats every once in a row. Right many of you know. I think i think that working in tandem and doing better overall for the team up your engine can only go so far before you need a replace that you don't wanna replace max crosby you wanna be able to give him some time off and get let him catch his breath and not overdo himself so we can make it the full seventeen seventeen weeks now right. Got seventeen games this year so you can't go full throttle all the time but when they need you to step up and you have that energy reserve that's when it's going to be come to light and when it's really been a matter and how many times did we see last year where it got down to that last minute and a half or so and there was no gas left in the tank. And how many times have we seen in other situations that are better situations where we're guys are making plays in those situations because they they actually do have a little bit left in the tank on empty for sure that i have to reference that miami game every time like that was the epitome of the raiders. Defense like during the second half of last season where nineteen seconds. They couldn't shave off any. Listen you know if you remember. They should just scored the touchdown right number. 'cause they they ran the clock. They forced miami to use all their timeouts and they abandoned up the field goal to set it. Set it all up i. I hate to bring up bad memories writer but his nineteen seconds left. the miami. Dolphins are starting at their own twenty five yard line with no timeouts down by what two or whatever it was one to whatever it was the next day somebody highly respected in the nfl who basically runs his own team. Texts me and said you realize that. The raiders based on all the analytics of that situation. They had a ninety nine point seven percent chance to win. So my response was what would it have been. Had they score the touchdown. He's i probably the same so you either way. It was like come on defense. You gotta make a play right there and that's really what it boils down to. It wasn't the decision to kick the field goal. Rather than score the touchdown was the fact that their defense just couldn't get it done when it needed to get done so crazy crazy. Cassie before we get out of here. there's a little bit of an elephant in the room these days. I don't know if you've if you've picked up on it with the writers and it's it's it's on defense along the defensive line it's in the secondary and it goes by the name of damon are net Something's going on With with damon are not necessarily saying personally with david arnett net. But i think the way. The raiders are net right now Some of the not so subtle messages that they're sending Damon are right now. has become very very conspicuous. And it's an it's an elephant because the raiders invested the nineteenth pick overall endangered arnett. And at the time people like wait what you know. That's that's that's a reach right there. Damodar net nobody had him projected to go number nineteen and low and behold a year later. Here's damon are net. Kinda you know. He's he's definitely not being talked about. Very much It doesn't it. Looks like casey hayward as of right now anyway probably has that outside. Cornerback position people at our talked to in the building. expressed skepticism. That damon can just move over to the inside and man that slot cornerback position. So i think what what ultimately it becomes as. What's the deal with damon arnett. And where does he figure into this puzzle right now Any any feeling on your part you know what's so funny many. I think yeah. It was like one of the last days of ta's or many camp. And i was just sitting there. And i'm like man. I have no video of damon. Arnett registered my head that i knew so i obviously shoot video here for review journal. Saw matt minicamps trying to get little snippets of each player. Where the heck is number twenty. So you know. I'm like looking for him. And there is just sort of standing off to the side doesn't have his helmet on. He standing by one of the coaches and that's all the video i have of him. He wasn't from any drills. He wasn't running. He was just standing there though. Real quick quick quick now this could very well have been the plan for david in terms of look just watch more. Just watch it absorbed digest it understand it. Grasp it do it from this vantage now. But that's i. I don't know and you don't know what was going on. We can only say what we saw. These guys are. you're right. i saw standing next to one of the coaches. Maybe he's saying. Hey this is how you don't lead with your head when you make a tackle. This is finding prevent yourself. I mean jessica. Somebody does need to teach david how to tackle for himself for his own safety to was it to concussions. Might have been back to back games on sort of the same exact. What are doing yes so i don't i mean the video is our when i saw him out there right. He was standing off to the side. Like you said we don't know if if that was maybe the course of action for him. Hey stand back. Take a look this. Obviously he didn't have otas minicamp last year right as the it was cancelled last year so he had to do everything through zoom so yeah maybe getting a bigger scope of it and just analyzing what's going on around him and maybe he's a yeah as see like a seat. He has to see at first before doing it. And that's the waking barnes then okay but we don't know that we don't we don't know the answers there i even if it is. That's probably not good. You know what i'm saying. That's not ideal for the ninth pitcher nineteenth pick overall. But.

"Nicole was amazing and to be able to to tell the story and talk show about it and so again. You know. We're i can spend entire show. We'll probably gonna move on your bit But just it's a major major story. And i think everybody should take pride in the innocence. Good it's good for humanity so it's Intimate let's get back to football talk but hey you know what. We're going to be telling this story. This story isn't going away But it so huge but we can talk football and we dot com the while. He's playing football. I don't want him come over. There is the one guy who had the courage he's also. Nfl player making money so wrapped up minicamp last week. Pretty quiet uneventful minicamp to be honest with you. A court miller practice on wednesday we or show on wednesday morning. He didn't practice so does not worried about him They didn't practice on thursday but they got a lot done in the offseason. Groom said the third round pick is out in still hoped we might come back and training camp. He didn't really he didn't give any reason. So i mean you would think it's injury we'll see. He's not signed. I think it's a big problem mountain. Coons isn't saying either. Trevor more the second round pick right thank is the star of the class is has signed. So that's all good gruden said hey talking about the secondary i don't care what round guys are drafted the best guys we're gonna play. That might have been at damodar net. The modern shot at john abram. I think it was more of a shot. It april excuse me of ornette. Victory for Tweeted the other day that you know. He's an afterthought. I've i've been hearing a lot of things of my sources that you know. Don't know they can trust them. And you know they they. They signed free agents at that position and they drafted hobbs who works who people think might be better in robertson for froude in that that speaks to what gruner saying. It doesn't matter what round know. I think that they're going to damage it. Play out with him They don't have to make a decision quickly. But yeah i get the feeling that they don't feel like they necessarily count on him and That's the case that's a really bad fricken. Pick number nine thousand nine hundred janney ways. I think that's part of the reason why people are kind of rolling is about al leatherwood is not odds leather woods fall in there were it has a chance to become a really good player but like another reach but if he plays great it won't matter in or net because great. It won't matter that he was reached but you know they missed. They took the Justin jefferson they. Could've took kenneth murray. He's the guy. I want them to take on the could patrick queen. That could have maybe trade down jane johnson. So i mean you know if doesn't get it together. They're going to be a lot of. The raiders are gonna have to eat a lot of crow on that again. But we'll see it's not over. He has a chance. Yang dragway was very interesting because he said he stopped critiqued himself and didn't think he had a very good year last year with the vikings in the ravens ravens. And that's what i've been hearing around the league is he made. He would have been a bigger prize in free agency. He had a better here. In one of those things probably would have franchise moore. We wanted to give him a new contract but team straight for this guy and and he's not in either team so think that kind of maybe humbled little bit always make him take stock. And i think that's a really good thing. Because i think it can really motivate him. I i liked that. The raiders gave him a two year. Twenty six million dollar deal. He's be a free agent at twenty eight years old gan so that means he's going to be very motivated. He's gonna be very motivated. He said that he thinks max crabby himself could be the best pashas zero in the nfl. We'll see at the top any. Let's see but hey better razor impasse right a lot. Better jon. gruden made calmer about no energy. Vampires the feels. Like everybody's excited. We've heard this before but you know who's he time buzzy talking about why people things trent brown apply be my guess. I found interesting. Derek carr last week. You're talking about the new offense alliance. I love gave jackson Rodney hudson he didn't mention trip brown so that might be a addition. A addition by subtraction. You know if if you're not on the field you can't do much. And that was his deal last year What else do people you know. The weakest come out and said hey you know here's the rules for vaccinated players. Here's the rules for unvaccinated players. Amy's just looking at it. It's going to be a lot more pleasant for vaccinated players. They're going to have a lot easier way. So we'll see if any players around the more on the league get vaccinated. I you know. I think the raiders are doing pretty well there. So we'll see a ton of debt groomed things more debt. And i think they have more demi certainly more debt more depth on defense line this more depth at a lot of pass rusher Evens landman emmett. Tackle things more depth that you know running back certainly with drake Wide receivers really interesting. That might help down the stretch because what happened to this team down the stretch. Last year's day imploded and they were awful and they blew the frigging playoffs. Both years well improved debt. Because you're gonna get hurt and improve death us have a better chance. So it's gonna be really interesting thing that i think is best jazz. The playoff is through their improved. Death i really do. They signed garin we last week. A former first round. Pick two thousand sixteen only twenty. Six years old hasn't done much after leaving. The jets can't city the bills mainly play two games last year. had a good workout. Reportedly the raiders. They need depth at linebacker. So we'll see you can sneak on the roster. It's not the worst thing as impact thing while you never know. Who's going to be an impact player. But i think right now. Let's see if you can make the team very proud show. I appreciate you guys. Thanks for listening to me. You guys have a great week and we'll have fun unless appreciate everybody take care. Have this the waves in this silverware. Pride support for this episode comes.

Sam gordon who also covers writers here for the las vegas review journal. Sam how are you doing was video. Do awo do well. We're we're itching. we're closer closer. Closer man draft a draft starts next week. i'm excited. The offseason is in full swing and we'll be in full swing especially after drafted yom ready to go fired up. Absolutely adam i and before we get into the draft we will touch on the draft Today a little bit of news. The raiders went out and signed a corner back. No it wasn't richard sherman. Everyone is clamoring. Up richard sherman. But i would. I would think that he's Gonna be a post draft type of transaction for whoever Ends up signing richard. Maybe we'll be. The raiders will see a but In the meantime they added to their cornerback crew. They signed veteran. Resold douglas Most recently of the carolina panthers at your last year has been a pretty solid player Throughout his career former third round pick of the philadelphia eagles back in two thousand and seventeen as a career. total five interceptions last year. A career high Was it sixty two tackles and nine passes defensed a pass breakup. Basically a six foot two You know a good size. Cornerback i is going to be able to push for a starting job at the very least a A key reserve role. Sam your initial thoughts on mr douglas. Joining the raiders. Yeah good good signing especially at this point in free agency right. I mean you address. I mean you're hoping that the secretary of the young secondary take step forward but in the event that there's some stagnant or in the event that one of these young players hanging doesn't pan out. You haven't established veteran guide like you seventy started. Eleven games last year for carolina. Twenty nine starts over the course of his four year career. This far played with the philadelphia eagles. Two thousand seventeen the super bowl champion philadelphia eagles was part of that group so some experience in pressure situations in big games. He's been there he's done that and up the thing. I like the most about eighty six to hundred ten pounds. A big physical corner. That's familiar was on coverage that that has played in his own schemes and feels to me like a natural fit for what rally wants to do with whether that's like you said him challenging for starting spot on the outside which i think he's come here to do and would not shock me if he is one of the starters going into the season or like you said just kind of bullshit adapt. It gives you another option Guy who still only twenty six years old theory still wish best football still ahead of I think he fits in nicely with the raiders. Wanna do in their secondary. What were your what were your boss. Yeah very much likewise and You know obviously there could be a little bit of a ripple effect And you know The writers have invested pretty highly in. Cornerback The last two drafts Trayvon mullin was the second round pick in twenty nineteen and twenty twenty last year Domon are damian Arnett was drafted I in the first round number nineteen overall so those are high investments On a position. And you know that. The raiders want to get those guys on the field as much as possible on specifically damodar net Guy who's rookie season was essentially lost. Dude doodo agrees and I'm interested in trying to figure out what that ripple effect might be You you mentioned that. Douglas is somebody that has a starting experience. Starting experience on a very good team has been some high pressure. Situations still is young. Twenty six plays system. That gus bradley. is bringing here to las vegas And you know i think. The raiders have to balance that whole bringing in somebody that you know might be pushing for a starting job but also you need to develop a damar net. But as we've talked about. Sam damon are net does have experienced playing in the slot. If you go back to his college days at ohio state he played a lot of slot. Cornerback in old. Lo and behold the raiders. Have an opening right now at slot. Cornerback you know i. I haven't necessarily heard that they would be the you know the they'd be interested in picking damon inside. But it's gotta be part of the possibilities right. You would think oh no question. And i don't want to be really clear like yeah. They've been on ed emigrate season. And there's definitely a chance that he gets bumped inside. But i don't think that's necessarily an indictment against statement on but and the reason i feel that way is because this is twenty twenty one is like you watch these teams play. You watch how the game is played now. It feels to me. I don't have the specifics in front of me but feels to me like there's a slot receiver somebody lined up in the slot in about eighty percent of place. You watch football. The game is more spread out. It's more fast paced in. I think one of the big kind of evidence over the last ten or fifteen years is the emergence of the receiver. Kind of appreciate one you think of to get that whole thing started was west awkward. But now every team you it's important. You have somebody that gets busy out in the slot. And i times you see teams like most productive receivers lineup slot. Sometimes and that's where you get favorable matchups all the time so with that in mind if david ornette is a better fit in the slot and is a better is better than coverage from the slot. Thou think. there's anything wrong with that. I think all that means is that you are becoming a more a better secondary a more complete secondary more well rounded if that were to happen if you were to have success there now. That's about writing off him. You know fighting for starting job on the outside and emerging and developing on the assad. But if it's better for the defense overall having douglas start moving suck wondered than. I'm all for it. I think that that would make a ton of sense if they feel like their defense of has more.

"Our thoughts. In the las vegas raiders before entering to the world of news and other topics. We find really interesting so here. We go adam All right so draft is almost upon us. You're doing the usual. Mock draft. The newspaper that i think are going to be up every week leading up into the draft. Probably a few the week of the draft. You can tell people where to find those. But i want to focus on kind of the history of the recent i. Some of the raiders and what they gotten out of them and then kinda. Get your thoughts on that. But also then had a correlated into what you think they should do at seventeen and maybe trying to do better than they have. So i'm gonna give you some guys. Colt miller Game net henry rushed. Josh jacobs i guess jacobs would be the guy said they succeeded with most although they just signed a new joker in kenyan drake. Give me a grade that you think jon gruden has been when you consider those five players as the guys he's taken in the first round man. That's tough. I'm gonna i'm gonna go with a a c. Yes listen to get a couple of players in are very key. Contributors is good. That's a good thing to have guys that are starting to even performing and those guys are starting but you need to do that in the first round. The first round is around where you need to just Consistently maybe not hit home runs but at lease doubles and triples with your draft selections. And if you've got guys that are starting for your team and are very important players that that's a good thing so i don't think you'd be overly negative but it does seem like you know they've stretched. They've reached a little bit. We've talked about that word of reach In what it means and it does feel like they've done in a couple of cases. I know the clifford case in particular You know damodar net situation where Those are two players that are expected to go much much. Later in the draft at the raiders. Were much higher on them that other teams and sometimes if you have a guy or guys in the first round that you think are you know you have rated a lot higher than everybody else you know you gotta get him. You can't you can't take the chance that you miss out of those guys that you really really like but at the same time. Yeah it's it's not. It's not a flawless track record at all. It can't be a can't i. Don't think it can be a b c like you've gotta get starters there you do but you've also got guys that are at the top of their position. Well here's a bigger issue to me. It's like okay. We mean those five jacobs vida goggle Kenyan drake they didn't sign him to sit down rugs obviously is going to get. You know it'd be one of the started receivers in new signing extent you. But i mean i don't know how good they been. Let's be honest if they really went out in free agency and they've already gotten gottlieb an astronaut to calm clammy the second. I don't know it cleaned. Furrow and damon are net are considered to be good enough to be starters if you could sign over them right. I mean if you could go whatever money they can have left. Get the players. I think it started to vote veteran. Both those guys. I don't think this earlier is clearances name. I i'm picking especially before overall pick. That shouldn't even be like an issue like you shouldn't say that at this point if they were great picks yeah. I think that's the thing. I think when you look at it and say. Hey you've got to get you've got to draft starters in that spot and that's what was getting at the they've done it. They've been able to get guys with those first round picks that are starting players so on one hand you have to say. Hey you're doing your job as as a front office and as an organization if you're drafting starters in the first round a you're consistently turning guys are starting players with the question on a couple of guys is are they starters because they were drafted in the first round. And i think that's that's a you look at it would be starting otherwise Have they earned those starting roles. Of course in the case of jacobson miller for sure and rugs has been impactful as it was on the field and furrow has been a good player. I mean you've got guys that are that are. Dj david arnett. They seem to have committed quite a bit to him just because they picked him in the first round and they're like well that's our guy would take him in the first round he's going to be the starter at corner and we're not gonna go bring anybody into him because he's the starter. Well is he the starter because you drafted with rounder. Because he's earned it that that's the question to look at. That's the that's the relevant information here of you know when you're trying to wonder grade these guys in judge them is it. Do they warrant those starting spots in the you know what they've been given on the team. And i i just i think they have their decent so you don't want to knock them too much but you know. I think they do leave a lot to be desired in terms of who they've drafted and again we've talked about you. Know what value means if cleveland furrow and this is a big if this is not a guarantee this is not even the mock drafts had him in a certain spot and even though most pragmatics prognosticators had you know very late first round even in the second round. We don't know that that's the case. So other team may have been been there in a position to say. Hey we want to draft him. Eighth or ninth or tenth. And the raiders have been able to get in on him but the question of value is very intriguing. One of the draft. We do this all the time but if nobody was gonna take him if you can say right now that nobody was going to take him in the top twenty then even if cleland furrow because hall of famer. It's a bad pick right because you could've traded down to twelve thirteen. Fourteen fifteen sixteen any of those spots and taking them so i think that's a really tough concept for people to understand and to get a but it is just it's where guys are slotted in what the value is you know. They could've traded traded down to any of those fox and still got him but we don't know that the case. I think we most of us assume that most people out there think that cleveland roka under the twenties and the raiders could have draft traded down any spot that they wanted and still been able to pick him up. But that's not a guarantee you never know that the browns are somebody could have had a very high for grade on him and taking in and so then. You've gotta make that choice. But that's what value means in terms of the draft. If you take a guy sooner than he should have gone and nobody else would have taken them. That it's a bad pick no matter what even if cleveland for is the best player in history and that's a really really tricky thing to try to figure out that's a that's a tough. That's a tough thing fans to understand obvious lorzenzo okay. So they picked seventeen You doing our mock drafts yet again. let me put it this way. If if what we're saying about these past trump picks and again. I think they've gotten production out of sumner but they look at each other and say okay. Let's just get the safest guy guy we know. We'll start who can contribute no chance whatsoever. And they're at seventeen they don't move off the pitch. Would.

"They asked about around on the field as we talk here again on a tuesday. I just wanna make that clear just in case something happens overnight. While before this post on wednesday morning we are talking about the defense impossible free agent acquisitions and some that. The raiders have already made but with gus bradley there. We talked about his relationship with yanic and gakugei. Do you think that there's a chance that gus bradley tries to bring back. Some other veteran players that he worked with for instance. The name. On getting at richard sherman. Would he be somebody that you think. The raiders may look at in the next wave of signings or not i would they might Just the whole podcast situation. Gruden chris collins british on podcast. There's all kinds of tampering going on on yet. Not i think with the raiders Draft trae moment in the second round. And it's been in the nineteenth overall pick on damodar net like like it'd be a pretty big red flag at. They're already moving our net slap corner. I don't think you draft the gun. Nineteen the rocketing is going to be a soccer owner. And if you do science like richard sherman he's coming into star mention tremont molin says you have to put our net particularly mineral starting rotation So i think actually be better off targeted A soccer back on the market. And there's plenty of those guys out. There is actually one that also has experience working with this riley Casey hayward chart was released recently He's played nickelback from the charged under under this bradley the last few years it. He's obviously it'd be familiar with this game. The veteran guy should cost much money. I'm a little bit younger than richard. Sherman was getting up there a bit. So i think adding somebody like that would actually be a better move. I'm gonna go ahead right here. Take a quick break when we come back.

Joining me the raiders. Beat writer there to sean again. Thank you for coming on the show. But now i wanna start picking your brain about some of the offensive players. The are possibility positions that we think could help the raiders move. Maybe some cast space one of those names. It's been talked about a lot. Is marcus mariota. What do they do with him. Being such a high price up. I think he'll be do about a ten point. Six ten point seven million this year Maybe i've heard even upwards of a little more guaranteed money but With marcus mariota being a backup for derek carr right now. They haven't really been able to move him. Why do you think that is an do you think that they are actually trying to kinda shop. Marcus mariota to trade him epsom room. Yeah i think that they would. Marcus is it's not necessarily an indictment against him as a fair but nobody's paying a backup quarterback almost led a million dollars and I don't think markets showed enough in his one start last season teen to be comfortable a sign of room to be there starter even see some other guys across the league you know ryan is a two million dollar deal but It's actually a starter for a lot of disease. Matina almost weekly. Outside seasons of been there are bad mass. Different situation there So i think the raiders are gonna have to end up just releasing marianna unless You know he wants to come back on a restructured deal for a smaller amount. But you would think that he would prefer to just test market and see what he can get out there and restructuring deal And you know. I don't think there's any scenario which they keep them at that you know over ten million dollar mark to be behind. Your car is clear at this point. Their cars quarterback mariota's gonna take his job. I think that was the intention of knowing sign to give some competition push. Pardon if if somehow he beat out car. I incentives there to see if you reform while he takes over at the start about pretty quiz not happening at this point so i think cunningham in space You know whether they're gonna use it on other big signing or just having it for flexibility later season i don't think he's gonna be on the roster in twenty one. We know that the raiders are likely going to invest more so on the defense in the coming season so So sean if you had the project what they do their safety or in the secondary what do you think is the best bet for. The raiders was the best course of action for them. I think free citation is a position where they have to add a veteran through free agency like the secondary right now is extremely young knock. I mentioned earlier. The two two young cornerbacks chocolate were still young player I really think at free safety in in an nickleback position to add veterans there to kind of solidify secondary which i know they get a lot of paths last year for the astros was so bad but they also had plenty of issues. Back there Cover guys so. I think somebody like anthony harris who still out there. At this moment every safety will be a strong option. East play in a glass safety system in coventry system in his career. Conference is on the side. Mom let you need next jonathan. Abrams was be spending more time in the box in his new scheme. But even they don't get a top-flight guy like that. There are plenty of veteran options later on ricardo allen. Who's released by the falcons of the good action backwards. Also use a single high stakes game. Kenny vaccaro coming from the titans'll they use a lot of coverage breeze at escape fit. There's some cheaper guys to better guys who upgrade over what they had last year at their free safety position. You talked a little bit about that sought corner spot a couple of times and the name that we haven't brought up is lamarcus. Joyner has moved on as well. The raiders released him from the contract that they had with him that freed up about nine million dollars worth of cap space And his position. And i i think you said earlier that you're looking at damon net to kinda come into that that position more into that role. How much do you think he's developed to be able to do that full time and maybe as last year. Just kind of reflective on Not having an off season because the cova and all. He didn't get that work in before training camp to having the amount of injuries that he had from being to having his hand casts and and all those kinds of things you he had to deal with his first year have we been hard on. Damon are.

"Vegas nation to receive fifty percent off and start betting smarter today casinos in wildfires. Obviously a lot of the conversations with mike was about the defense the defense coordinator. Some of the draft picks some of the difficulties of the defense you know had last year and also the draft class on paper. You look at the writers draft class. henry bryan edwards Damodar net. Who am i missing. Here tanner muse lynn. Bowden junior John simpson The guard from clemson on paper was more miss than hit and And you know. Mike did make any excuses or anything like that But i've been trying to to to really kinda remind raider fans and our readers and listeners. This was a difficult year to really judge any rookie class. Given everything that was was going on first and foremost of of the draft process of evaluation. And it kind of got unplugged right at the right after the The scouting combine last. That's really when covid nineteen reared. Its ugly head in the whole world. Kind of shut down at least here in the united states and football shutdown so You know that that interrupted the process. You're forced to basically do zoom meetings. And micmac said you know. Hey i did a pretty good job with that. Felt like we got a pretty good handle on all these guys. But there's no substitute for face to face meetings And and getting to know somebody getting on campus and talking to you. Know the coaches the equipment manager the secretaries in the building trying to draw up a real Portrait of who it is that you're that you're getting ready to draft who this person really is. That was that went out the window But also the development side of it. You know the The offseason there was no offseason for these guys in the one thing that he said he goes. If i had it basically if i had to do it over again you know maybe not have forced so much on in the earlier rounds with damon are met our our net third round. And then excuse me not. David are net but Lynn bowden junior in the third round and then meek robertson in the fourth round Because they were making position changes. And as an and i tried to explain this to some some people Especially in a meeks case. He was an outside cornerback. at at Louisiana tech louisiana tech. Yeah and he. He moved into the slot and tried tried to tell. Hey that's tough. Switch going from outside corner to to to slot back in the slot. Cornerback in the nfl. And what mike said was you know looking at it. It's tough it would have been tough for any player coming in this year. Really to learn to you know to to make the transition from college to the nfl. Without the it was double a tough for these guys that were trying to make positions changes and you mentioned a meek any mentioned lynn bowden junior trying to pick up blitzes and blocking protection packages and stuff like that so it sounded like you not that he regretted but you know probably pushed it a little bit too far with that Jotting a couple of guys that they were gonna make positions which is with and you know they still believe in a meek roberson obviously they traded lynn bowden junior but it they they believe to make robertson but they kind of fell early on probably not going to happen this year for the reasons that i just discussed also talked about henry ruggs And damodar damodar net in particular Know he talked about hey. They still love his quickness. Is skill set his ability all that. But this is a dude that needs to get in the weight. Room honored attrition program and be religious about it. He needs to get stronger. He needs to get bigger needs to get more power. I think sam you probably saw that as well Watching him play that there is a skill. set there but there's other there's other aspects to be in a professional athlete and granted in his case you know. He couldn't lift weights because of the injury to his wrist. So that that curtail. That'll all bit. But this is a really big offseason for damon are net in terms of getting his strength back. And i feel like the raiders. Still believe in him but now it's on him to really take advantage this off season getting the weight room do do everything that he needs to do. A body perspective. I also think vinny that. I think raiders. The raiders are a little spoiled by twenty nineteen draft class. Right i mean they all these guys that are able to step on field day one in produce and that doesn't necessarily happen every year and the good thing about like the draft classes is that these guys aren't they don't have one year. Nfl careers. Well some guys do but there is a chance there for growth development. I don't think yeah right now at this stage after one season if you were to drain the grade. The raiders raft glass. They get a good grade but you can't. I don't think you can look at these things right away. Maybe this season next season. Seattle these these guys an opportunity to develop take it takes time. There's nothing wrong with somebody taking a couple of years a year or to adjust to the nfl level and then becoming an impact player. We see all the time yeah. He's awesome day one. And then you have guys at it takes a while to establish and then they become better players twenty four twenty five twenty six. You see some guys out even later than that in their career so i think those are all fair points and just reading reading your story reading your your mac. I mean he's you know he's not dancing around and he knows that those guys need to be. He's keeping those guys accountable and they want to be better to certainly because there was not a lot of production this year. But i i mean just long term. It's in my opinion is. It's way too early to write in boston on anybody. Who is sweet. It's been one year if full offseason program like you said wait program now you have a full year of film where okay what is fair. Asked me to address. What is he where. Where does he need to get better. What a is how can we addresses. And i think that's what you're going to see. The raiders do all draft picks. And maybe this time next year. We'll have a better idea but not every draft is going to be twenty nine zero draft last like that just doesn't happen with remote teams you don't. You're not plug in five six guys. That are all productive right away. So it's gonna take domino's General in the yeah And and you're absolutely right and we've seen it a million times You know there are guys that take redshirt us in the nfl. Not not officially redshirt ears but you guys that are You know Projects guys that aren't right quite ready yet guys who are being Who you know who who the guy in front of him is just better right now and older and more experienced and and you don't want it's great to to have to play rookies But you're i. It's not a good position to be in where you have to have rookies. Come in and just have a major impact right away. I've been shot of picks and those type of guys. You want to get those guys on the field as as quickly as possible. But i think fans would be surprised at how realistic the people within the teams. Look at things you know. As far as hey of. John simpson can be a good road. Obviously you want him to be a starter But if he's not a starter if he can develop into a a a a good rotational player that can you know The be a solid backup. That's not bad value You know in the fourth round So there's there's no realistic looking at things a meek robertson. I.

"From a great week were football. Throw a four more Four games the the to yesterday to to sunday rather were were particularly cappelli. Kansas city survives. Tom brady at forty three back in the another championship game. The matchups next sunday are awesome. I don't think. I think this is the right for teams the best four teams. I think it played itself out of that. I can't wait for next sunday. And interestingly enough The raiders were the played. Three of these teams right The kansas city chiefs the buffalo bills and the tampa bay buccaneers And they are one and two in those games overall in the playoffs among plan. Participants rated with three and four and going into this. Weekend's games are this past weekend's games they were three and three. So it gives you. If you're a raider fans are a little bit of a measure of confidence that it's not that far away. The raiders are probably a little bit closer than than everybody thinks They just have to get that defense fixed up and seventy took a big step in that direction Long after we recorded our podcast. Last week they went ahead and made it official with gus bradley as their new defensive coordinator He brings in to really highly qualified. Assistant coaches ron. Miles to coaches defensive. Backfield two coaches linebackers. They join rod marinelli who stays on board To coach defensive line and you know all of a sudden I think that the raiders defense at the very least as their new leader We got a chance to talk to him last week. And i felt like he brought a lot of energy a lot of passion. He's obviously excited about this job. What were your initial thoughts on the gus. Bradley higher higher than here. I think he has track record. He's been a head coach. He's been at the fed's ornate for great the fences and like we talked about last week. He's proven that he can help identify and develop talent. And that's the raiders. Frankly need to do at this point. There's a lot of young players on this defense that have potential. Maybe quite haven't played to that potential. But maybe gus rally can't figure out how to get more out of these guys and for me. It's really the first domino to fall right. We talked all year about how to fix this defense now. They have defensive coordinator in place. Can they can begin. Kinda sculpting and identity on that side of the ball in starts with bradley. And of course jon gruden mike knock attorney the direction they want to go but i think he's a good fit. It like you said energy is the right word. Meet his press conference Seem really genuine. Seemed like he's really excited to be here. He understands kind of what. What the raiders the. Nfl that issue with his franchise that he has an opportunity. Here to get this franchise back where it wants to be as as one of the perennial playoff team and like you said any not not necessarily too far off the offenses playoff-caliber or was for a majority the season that the events was not in it with rallying the full down. I mean he all boxes in my opinion. Now it's now it's time for us to see what he actually does when it comes to personnel when it comes to development and things of that nature. We won't know for quite some time. But it's step one and i think it's a necessary step in augusta. Yeah and i think that In in gus bradley's case. I think what won the day for for him was the combination he brings of a track record of coordinating defenses. That have been buying large successful. You know there's some Some hiccups along the way last year. I think they chargers who he was The defense coordinator for the last four years gave up. You know the twenty fifth most points in the game adler route twenty six points twenty five points per game but but but aside from that his defense is in los angeles where typically stout They didn't give up a whole lot of points They didn't give up a whole lot of yards They were sound You know and And and while coached and developed. And i think that that track record go all the way back to his days with the seattle seahawks You know helping to build. What would later become a the legion of boom and getting those players in place and getting those players developed to the point where we now remember them as legion of boom although it didn't quite start out that way a lot of late round draft picks non drafted free agents that That ultimately made up that group but but that combination of the track record and the development I think we're really important for the raiders. This is not a defense. Some people on social media were. Why didn't they themselves. You know the next brandon staley you know the rams defense coordinator who's now the head coach of the los angeles chargers that's that's You know a great objective to try to do that. But there's two things that you know In ram's case you had a ready made defense built around you know develop players Surefire greatest star. Yeah aaron donald jalen ramsey and johnson and michael brockers. I could go on and on Darius williams There are a lot of pieces. That had already been developed in the shed. Mcveigh was looking for a way to now utilize them a better in a more creative way. Brennan staley obviously brought that to the table and he might be a great developer of tally. Just doesn't have that real track record. He hasn't been at it long enough to prove that he can actually develop take somebody from a to b to c and that's no discredit to his own. He just hasn't had the time to be able to do it. Whereas in on the raiders defense you don't have that star factor of cory littleton obviously as developed player who now needs to be utilized correctly. Nick wykowski ethic is fairly finished product. He's still a little bit young. There's still some ceiling there It's a matter now of utilizing him crackly but aside from that it's a lot of players that are still in that development stage Cleef herald Trayvon mullen damodar net jonathan abram and i think what gus bradley and specifically his the assistance that he's bringing with them. There's a tremendous track. Record there Sam of development. And i think that getting the proven the guy that has a track record in both of those categories production plus development. I think was for this situation The the the better pick rather than going out to try to go find the next year. I'm with you. I'm with you and you look at all three of his stops where he's been coordinator or head coach. You start with the seattle seahawks like. He's talked about legion of boom. We go on and on about how great that defense was all day but a lot of like you said a lot of late round picks it even the guys weren't necessarily late round picks a free agents were more so kind of your journeymen type that didn't necessarily pops anywhere else in then they brought in seattle and all of a sudden in that system there with gus grabbing carol. They're fantastic ended the jacksonville jaguars. Yeah he struggled as kosher is no denying that but he helped. Bring it personnel. That eventually got the jags. Afc championship game. I mean he was instrumental in soap. Identifying glares on that defense bream than bring them in and like you said developing them and then with the chargers the same thing. So there's a lot of young players on the raiders defense. They invested a lot of capital in bringing in young players with i saw first and second round picks and things of that nature and i think that's one of the critical things bradley's you're not you don't wanna have to move on from some of these guys Not anytime soon anyway. Can he get more out of them than talk author did. That's what we're gonna find out like you said based on his track record. I like his chances for being able to put these guys in position to be successful. Absolutely i think that the other thing with Another factor with gus bradley and no disrespect to him but I don't know if he's going to You know Ever get another head. Coaching job But if he does it's probably going to be a little while longer he's gonna have to put together You know a significant run of success. you know whether and most likely here in las vegas so the the the danger of losing him you know because we know we see. The trend look brandon. Staley was one year in los angeles. Now he's staying in los angeles but By the way. I had to laugh at people on on twitter yesterday. He said he.

"And now we're going to hear from gus bradley. After his press conference took place on tuesday and he spoke about some phase. Expect -tations of this raiders. Defense the style that you should see is a team that plays with great effort. Great enthusiasm great toughness and adidas a place. Smart that that is arkie. That's the style when people talk now if you to set a wha what is our non-negotiables that is fast physical. And we've got to find a way to get the ball and We gotta sit up opportunities for the offense score them possessions and you know every call that we design is really whether even if it's just three d you say or man coverage we want the players have the mindset that every every call that we have is designed to get the ball and it's very important the communication that take place within the defense. We're going to add defense. We're going to be very multiple but not the expense that we don't play fast. That's first and foremost. What is your blandford forgetting. Some of these players clear. Farrell damodar net trayvon. Jonathan abraham up to speed that next level. Well i think first and foremost to build but obviously the staff freak. The staff has has done here. You're great job with fundamentals and things like that and then you involve a note new system when i would say it is a system now we have in place and those things. That are negotiable. But we also don't wanna players to be robots. There's things that we do that we feel strongly about and it's really based on fundamentals and things like communication fundamentals saqlain guys get off upfront but the defense align so there's some non-negotiables like that is an exciting defense to play and i would say that the players will be very excited to be part of it. Because they're they know that they're gonna have the billion of play fast and i think is our job as coaches is really to evaluate the players and then put them in position to where they can make plays and like. I said for me to be fair to the players. That's gonna take place the next month or so you know. We're going to be heavy in tuned to it. I'm excited about a guy Coach rod marinelli is going to be a part of the staff and he was another big reason why this was so important..

"Have young defensive backs that need to develop janeth Abram trayvon mullen damodar net the future of his defense in a lotta ways hinges on those guys taking the next step in improving because you know you did invest first round in sacramento draft. Pick so if that's me. I think there's some appeal there knowing that he's done work with the richard sherman of the world. The cam chancers guys that byron maxwell the these high level defensive backs were able to produce for the seattle seahawks. I think if we're talking about him in particular when i go through his resume that's one thing. That really appeals to me. And that's one thing that stood out loud you mentioned that because You know In talking to jon gruden as did last week. One of the things that he talked about was you know your communication development track record and all that and And you know when you look at the legion of boom. Which which. Gus bradley when you look back at those draft the the drafting of the eventual legion of boom players members. Right You know i. I remember somebody on twitter. Hit me up about gus bradley. While he had a bunch of star players to work with seattle Yes and no. They became star players but they Necessarily when they were drafting you look at guys like bobby wagner k. J. right And michael bennett. Knock smith and And richard sherman. Your these guys were players who at the time Many of them weren't necessarily high high draft picks or are known quantities. I know richard sherman and nobody. He played wide receiver and cornerback at stanford he was he was thought to be too slow to play. Cornerback in the nfl. People kinda laughed at p carol for drafting him. While i'll pick any. Yeah exactly and a bunch of those guys were You know beyond the first round and so the the ability the ability Sam to be able to to find talent Where others are see talent where others may not see it and then develop that talent into what we ended up seeing become the legion of boom. I think That's pretty huge That's something that the raiders. Just haven't had they haven't been able they for whatever reason especially defensively aside from khalil mack. A few years ago but aside from him and he was just a i mean. That was an obvious. One is a four year school homeadvisor here. So but the but the The draft and development aspect just hasn't been there necessarily for the raiders met. Take a guy like gus bradley in chris. Richard have been prominent in that in their careers To me that's the thing. That if raiders fan. I'd be excited about You know a bringing the on board strictly for that factor in obviously the playcalling schemes and the designs in the coordinating and all that you know That plays a factor into it as well but being able to be part of the draft process in developing them taking them from a to b b to c. That's the part that if i'm a fan of excited about let me let me go through this. Let me delve into this real quick. You know like you talked about drafting developments. Richard sherman was fifth round. Pick right answer. Fifth round pick ran browner Undrafted free agent that they plucked out of the cfl covered him in highschool really. Yeah so our high school. Yeah yeah yeah he. I mean he was an absolute mosser for three years by byron maxwell right six round pigs. Top contributor walter thurmond another contributor on that defense..

"And over. I don't know if it's coaching techniques or just not very intelligent players in terms of the bus they made uncover to in some of these defenses. Where i don't know if i was supposed to put it on the coordinator for not teaching it properly or for players at that level. Not to know what they're doing. Yeah i think it's it's personnel to like. We talked about the dolphins game in the david arnett situation. That's a play that stands out to a lot of people. I mean obviously the jonathan abram coverage against the chiefs. Entre just letting. Travis kelce go down the middle. That's that's been discussed. But we know they were issues in coverage but like the democrat. I play against miami. The arche facemask penalty that got so much attention If you think about the coverage on that play there's a lot going on there so david arnett allows the receiver to release behind him because he s safety help but the safety that cases isaiah johnson. Who i think is a promising young player but doesn't really have much experience playing safety at all. And he's behind them and he's not in the right place in our net releases a receiver so that's a personnel issue. In of course we know during that game. They didn't have the defensive backs coaches available so there was an issue there of communication. But like you can put that on the coordinator which was mayor dally. Who just was who had just taken over on the job or you can put it on the defensive backs coaches who weren't even there Or you're going to say. Hey listen that's that's just kind of bad luck. That as a johnson had to be on that play damon are net had really played with him behind him so they didn't really have that communication but but in the end they're also has to be an understanding of football and i think that is something that's missing. I know coaches advise against know freelancing doing your own thing and everything like that but but you have to understand it for damodar net like why are you covering the flat yet even if you think. That's the play call even if you think. That's what you're supposed to this play even if you think i've saved the behind me..

"And the other part of it is without access to the locker room. That's one thing that is really missing this year. You can go into a locker room and kind of get a feel for where the mood is. What the temperature is where the focus is. We don't have that access this year so to sit here and say oh you know Got got got a good sense that they're going to regroup and get back after it on sunday or not It's those answers are unavailable to us. Because we're we're detached from the team hundred percent. A hundred percent on fronts is it has been such a weird year nothing yesterday. At least from the raiders perspective. Kind of a microcosm of how off. Just how weird that year is. So yes in in theory should they regroup and be able to beat the jets who are as we know all went eleven where the lowest scoring team in the nfl. Who are you know quite literally. You're one of the teams in the history of the sport. You know relative to the league. This is a team with very religious. Go in sixteen. Yeah you would like to think that. The raiders are ruben. Hito business and understand. Okay there's a sense of urgency all these games matter. They all matter before they really really really matter now. Given where everything is with the standings or whatnot so but you don't really know I would imagine just kind of out there yesterday. I mean. I'm sure there's a sense of frustration. I'm sure there's a sense of disappointment. But you gotta move forward. I mean this is the nfl you have to move on. I mean you don't celebrate wins for more than twenty four hours and you can't the met losses. I think for more than twenty four hours. Either and it's it's the i think one point that's interesting. I don't think it's going to necessarily come into play booze jon. Gruden talked about it last week. Normally under normal circumstances the team would stay out east right it in practice out there and not have to come back and then travel again but because of the pandemic because of the virus you're going cross country again back. Sweatshops baxter biggest again. Going back out east of the jets. So it's just kind of disrupts the flow of normal season and not that. That's going to be an excuse not that. I expect to be an excuse. But it's another little wrinkle or another little. Challenge that the raiders are going to have to overcome in route to the new york jets before that gave starts. But it's yeah it's just. Dvr these things happen. It's the raiders have been fortunate to avoid one of these kind of clunkers to the to this point in the season. But this is i mean. They're not they're not strangers to adversity david going through adversity all year as most teams. The nfl app whether it's with the pandemic whether it's on the field off the field injuries this that you name it. This is a team that is well. I well school in dealing with adversity at this juncture in the season. And that's where does is. This is a little bit of adversity and a little bit of a challenge. And now it's time to see young team. I talk about Team it isn't an experienced team. It's a young defense is the first year with a lot of these components. Louder these parts on the offense chan. This young team grow up and take care of business to give itself a viable chance to to to make the playoffs to qualify for the playoffs To complete or to continue this culture reset. That jon gruden and mike mayock haven't stopped. That's what we're gonna find out like you said i do i. I can't pretend to know. Because i thought the raiders were going to take care of atlanta and i thought they were college. Go for three fifty on that defense and three touchdowns so at this point all bets are off right. We're not can't. I'm not sure but i would give. The team has experienced that. This is going to be another challenge that they're going to have to work. I think they're going to be able to do so. Yeah and i think The many good points that you just made the fact that there is a little bit of a track record this year of responding to adversity. I think bodes well for them This was the one week. Where and ironically enough it was the cleanest week of all in terms of you know available players ackley. Farrell was out there. Lamarcus joyner worn out there Was out there. they're still on the You know working their way back from covid nineteen but those were. It didn't come out of the blue. Those were carryovers from the week before so it wasn't like you know on thursday. This bomb got dropped Has it's been prone to be dropped this year on a weekly basis. There wasn't anything that really came out of nowhere to to To throw them off there are on course And so maybe maybe they need a little bit of adversary. Maybe that's the trick They are adversely but Before we close out You know Really interested to see what the what the injury report looks like. A for damodar net. Who wanted to concussion. protocol After getting banged up yesterday And then also You know you've got a josh jacobs Who looked like an ankle injury. I don't want to speculate just yet. but You know That would be a big huge loss if he if he can't go and and again. You wanna talk about batum and repeats of last year. This was about that time. That josh jacobs scott really banged up and missed multiple games down. The stretch for the raiders. So you would hate for that to be the case this year. But we'll we'll wait and see what What the reports are on monday and then obviously on wednesday when when everyone gets back out there. A to practice for the raiders It's just it's full steam ahead You know i. I would think for their psyche. Their souls Everything else they need to go to new york just win decisively. It can't be one of those. You just gotta figure out a way to win you gotta you gotta get back on track and get back on track by a dominating a bad football team just getting that positive feeling.

"And tap to pay with a contact contactless visa to help support your community is where and how you shop matters Isa everywhere you WanNa be official partner of the NFL. Gone to the other side of the ball or let's say office row quick I thought Derek Carr looked up efficient and in charge on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers and he's going to have to be that and everything and even more. Against the saints. You just have to assume going against the New Orleans Saints drew brees and everything that they bring with that group that you're. GonNa have to score thirty points to be in a position to win this game I. think that's the mindset. The raiders have have I'm with you. I'm with you completely and fortunately for Derek Carr I mean he already knows this year what scoring thirty plus points looks like that's what he did against Carolina. Panthers like you mentioned he was efficient. In Command back there was decisive. He was accurate. He made the place that needed to be made in the in force anything when there was if you need to throw the ball away, he did you never crime with that it he led his playmakers make plays. He got the ball in Henry seen as he got the ball waller made a gorgeous. SORTA. Nelson Aguilar. Florida let Josh Shakeups to adjust adjustments does and that his feast on the ground. For. Ninety yards on twenty five carries he was effective move with chains. He was affected by the goal line in the offense looked really really really complete. Now, as you mentioned, saints are the Panthers Saints of Veteran Defense that is really good across all three levels I asked him Jordan one of the best as Russia's in the League we know that they kept that the. The line line Derek Carr cleaned last week. I think it's important that they do show again against the saints without question in that secondary with Marcus Williams Marshon lattimore. Those guys is legit is big time. So you you need their car yeah. You need to take care of the ball and you need to be decisive. Do all those things he did last week but I think You're. GonNa you'RE GONNA. Need a couple more place. There's going to be an opera opportunity to make a couple more plays on Monday I. Think you're GonNa need that against a type of team like the saints that that you know they're going to score going to play tough deep. And in talking to some people around Derek Carr this week he's really really excited about taking that I snap. In Las, Vegas Surreal thing We we we we've talked about that This is something that Derek Carr is GonNa remember and you know for him I think he wants to put together a spectacular performance to to honor the stage in honor the circumstance we go to the other side of the football defensively obviously Nick Wykowski is is doubtful to light tonight Here's the thing I think he's going to do everything he can to get on the field. Tonight I think that as the week went on the raiders were more and more whole of at forty four was going to be out there on the field. He's a guy that they definitely a desperately need for the length of the season. You don't have to balance that adds a big game a big moment you need. Your defense intact at the same time you need Nick Wykowski for the long haul. So we'll see how they handle that of that looking for some bounce back performances from. David. Arnott. Welcome to the NFL rookie moment last week you'll giving up a double. Double, stake at long touchdown, pass Robinson. The Panthers at he'll learn from Vanity raiders bounceback performance. From Eric Harris. I didn't have the best game of that he's had. A kind of. Young. Fall back onto onto what he's done in the past he's a good capable safety back. There I think he returns more to his arm but more more than anything the raiders front four needs to play a better game than they did on Sunday. Whatever the issue was. They weren't generating the heat on Teddy Bridgewater they need to I think they're going to have to do that against drew brees, not necessary to take him to the ground on sax that would be great if they could but. That isn't the whole the only way you get a job raise I. Think they need to start winning some one on one battles. And get after him and make life a little bit diff- Audrius. Well, we know we know what you resist. We know what he does and we what he what he means to the saints to the NFL. This is a man who over the course of his career has completed sixty seven point six percent of his passes that would be an NFL record the last three years completion percentage any point seventeen, seventy, two, percent, twenty, eighteen, seventy, four, point four, percent, twenty, nine, hundred, seventy, four, point, three percent that is unprecedented elite stuff and you can't let them sit back they're comfortable or else he's GonNa pick your park he's proven at urine you're out I don't care that he's forty-one. He knows what he's doing back there. He has been in every situation. Imagine he played in big Monday night games? He's played a big money that rogue games he's played in the Super Bowl we know is is resume speaks for itself so. To if the raiders could not generate some type of pressure, he's going to stand back there even without Michael Thomas and he's going to have a field day. They have to make you move around a little bit. Make him uncomfortable like you said, Saxwood be huge above but more importantly, I. Bet they a lot quick passing game. As we know, they're slop receiver short passes get the ball to Alvin. Kamara gotta disrupt that by any means necessary whether that's with the front four weather that's bringing a little bit of pressure from the linebackers whether that's putting a defensive back. You don't want this guy to get of rhythm. On Monday night football. That's that's what they don't want. You saw what happened to Teddy Bridgewater Bridgewater was outstanding last week for the most part because he was able to get into rhythm, they never made him uncomfortable only one sack that's it. That's not going to cut it. So the pressure I think that that is to me the number one factor for. The raiders, can they get pressure on drew brees it make the lives of Damodar Net, Trayvon Molin in those guys on the back end a little bit easier covering those receivers and listen you mentioned the high percentage of passes that he completes his complete as fast But that much more premium on defense back in your linebackers to minimize that damage tackle. This saints offense as many are is predicated on yards after catch. So gouging you once playmakers get the ball in their hands at you're GONNA give up. PASSES YOU'RE GONNA surrender receptions edge just the way of life especially playing gets quarterback like drew brees be physical at the point of attack of make sure that you know a five yard throw is a five yard gain and not a twenty yard gain. To me, it becomes imperative raiders. You know tackle really really well, but also. Forcing, a turnover or to. You can't just let the saints obviously March down the field and you have to get the ball to your office because the offense that Squirrel at a point, it would be nice for the raiders if they could come up with a turnover to represent vinnie and once I want to mention too is is accounting for that that saints running game as well. Right we know about reason those guys but the saints have a a former will want to punch with Latavius Murray and Alvin Kamara. Goes to speak to the balanced that offense now, Tampa Bay in week one a really good job of keeping those those guys check and keeping the offense in general and check but turned the ball over like you mentioned how how crucial turnovers were they turn the ball over found themselves in a big old call out of it. So can you keep it? How do you account for that running game also come for that game? It's one of those things that makes the saints such a challenging. Cover challenging offense to play against but but on the raiders. Look at what they did last week, they made big plays when they needed be made. They have I mean there's there's makers on that team that are definitely capable force turnovers. You can't I just again. I think it goes back to letting Greece get rhythm. Like you said, he can complete his masters but you cannot let that offense. Pickup chunk plays yards after the catch you you have to be accountable. Guarding Alvin Kamara and unfortunately for the raiders they experienced guarding a similar player similar player. We've won Christian, McCaffrey you would think that would get them ready but the the saints are deep talented.

We'll explore how the tight end position has changed over the last sixty years and what it takes to be the very best. Subscribe to t one from blue. Wire studios today. So you're ready for the August premiere. You're listening to Vegas Nation. It's Monday, which means it's time for first in ten with your host. Vinnie bonsignore. What is going on?

No many camps no ot as a condensed version of chaining camp where you know the. Focus was on strength and conditioning ramp ups protocols all those things that you have to do to keep the player safety I get it I understand it. It was needed. It's required we WANNA keep everybody safe and sound. But at some point, the raiders obviously have to get on a football field and play a game and today Monday Jon Gruden. Birthday. August seventeenth they finally were able to get into full pads for the first time this year it begins a fourteen day padded practice period will take them to the cusp of their season opener preparation for the Carolina. Panthers on September Thirteenth Football is here and it's happened happening rapidly. There's no rest for the weary. The raiders need to get it together over these next fourteen days in preparation for that season opener before we to all of that. And we have a lot to get to today. I just want to let you know that we are brought to you by deal dash Sunday ticket and flavor shot say grew got is your Monday go to for Raider News Analysis? Information your questions whatever the case might be, and it's been really interesting this past week finally getting a chance to eyeball the two thousand and twenty raiders. Las Vegas Raiders. It was the first time that we've actually been physically able to come into practice as the media and watch a practice. Now granted those first four days were just in helmets and then some shoulder pads but it was basically just shorts otherwise. They weren't able to hit. They weren't able to tackle to the ground running back toward able to fight through tackles but you've got US glimpse. You got a an idea of what this team is starting to look like an could be potentially this year and one thing that just. Out At me from Jump Street was the speed and athleticism of this young defense that Mike Mayock in Jon Gruden have put together. Now keep in mind the raiders started at rock bottom when you talk about their defense when Jon Gruden. Took over there is one start or not one starter. That is here in two thousand and twenty that and John Gruden's first season as the Oakland raiders coach. Playing. The Los Angeles Rams on Monday night the season opening opening game in in two thousand, eighteen not one defensive starter is back from that team in that tells you a little bit of something about the previous leadership that was in place. Unfortunately, they just did not do a good job of accumulating talent The raiders had to strip this thing to bare minimum ground zero and rebuild it from the ground up and I'll tell you what from what I saw this week at practice. This is a change defense when you're talking about Cory Littleton, a Nick Wykowski two linebackers that can actually provide pass rush excuse. Me a pass coverage defense you're looking at to dynamic looking young cornerbacks in Second Year Man Trayvon Mullen on one side and first round pick Damodar Net from Ohio state the nineteenth takeover I know that raise some eyebrows when the raiders selected him nineteenth overall people were wondering if that was a reach but there is conviction inside the raiders building that they made the right choice with Damon Arnett and he's running with the number one with their first team defense all week long that's pretty telling that maybe he is the season season opener starter at one cornerback position he looks young bast athletic. Can't wait to see him more in pads. AC- how he brings it with physicality Jonathan Abram, the second, your safety, a young rebuilt defensive line. It just looks a lot better and we've got a chance to talk to Jon Gruden the raiders head coach. Earlier this week about that young defense specifically, the young secondary when you're talking about Damon Arnett Trayvon Mullin. Jonathan Haber in the second year safety from Mississippi State who missed most of last year demarcus Randall who they signed as a free agent Dr In March, it just looks a lot different a lot better. Here's Jon Gruden about young. Secondary. said. Athletic. We all go good snaps. That's naps but. You've competition they were excited about youth that we have. Obviously, we reveal our defense. Process. Again, I have to reiterate as Jon Gruden did in that soundbite, it's early and there's a long process ahead of them even though they don't have a long time to complete that process, only fourteen padded practices between now and the real preparations for their season opener against. Carolina Panthers. So they're going to have to get after it in a hurry and there's no doubt that the defense. With seven new starters at the very least and a whole bunch of first and second year players they're relying on and reserves that weren't there last year they have to get together really quickly. But the pieces are there. The talent is there at the potential. Is there a couple of? During during a practice where you know Derek, Carr the raiders quarterback dumped it off to Darren. Waller cutting across the linebackers Cory Littleton, Nick Wykowski in a last your trust me a play like that with with the athletic player like dern waller he's running free because the raiders didn't have the kind of quickness and athleticism from their linebackers to be able to keep up with the player like that, and you know that goes for a twenty four, hundred, thirty yard gain a lot of times that it was just over and over and over again that that habit.

"damodar net" Discussed on Vegas Nation - Raiders Football

"What up Raider Nation Welcome back to Vegas Nation First and ten year Monday go to for all Raiders News, and and analysis of many months, and you're I cover the raiders for the Las Vegas Review Journal. We talked a little bit earlier about What training camp might look like? And it's quite a bit different at least for what the Players Union is proposing now that has to get hammered out with the owners, but suffice to say it's going to look a lot different than what it normally does. Probably entirely different than what than what easily does. Look like and coaches and players. Everyone's GonNa have to adapt. We all are doing it in our regular everyday life, players and coaches are going to do the same, but eventually hopefully and I'm saying that with my fingers crossed. An actual season. Will start at some point in September and. To the extent that fans can be involved we're GONNA find out. It could be a situation where there's no fans, or there's a dramatically reduced number of fans that are loud in Games. Of course, all that is predicated on the state that each team is really resides in, so they're going to have to follow the rules and regulations but we could have a case. We can have a situation where there's no fans. NFL Games this shared. Just get used to it. It's not gonNA. Look the same, no matter what. But eventually hopefully I keep saying that there's going to actually be football season being played, and if that is the case and I'm really hoping that is. You know. We got to start wondering okay. Your favorite team Las Vegas. Raiders what kind of season or are they going to have and in particular? What where do they fit in the the puzzle of the AFC conference? A let alone. The division the AFC west and I gotTa tell you and I'm not. They'll telling any secrets here or speaking out of turn. The AFC West Blondes to the Kansas City chiefs. Let's just get that out of the way I. Don't buy that. They're going to be around for a decade. Long Run I. Know How hard it is to Maine to maintain championship caliber rousers, especially considering Patrick Mahomes is going to get paid like no other here pretty soon. So that's gonNA throw their world. You know completely upside down. They're GONNA have to figure out a way over the long term to keep building and maintaining around Patrick Mahomes. I think they're going to have some down years along the way, but if we're talking specifically about twenty twenty, they're not going anywhere. The Kansas. City chiefs will win the AFC west, barring some unforeseen calamity, so the rest of the AFC west the chargers. The, Denver Broncos in your Las Vegas Raiders are essentially playing for second place, but you know what there's something noble about that and something meaningful about that especially now with the way, the NFL is adding a seventh team to each conferences playoffs. Basically what that means is three non division. Winning teams will make the playoffs so second place in the AFC west could be a really good place, and it could get you in the playoffs so. So where did the raiders figure into that and I think you might be surprised where I think that there that where where I think that they fit first of all, let's talk about the La chargers I, think talent wise their asset as any team in the division and the conference. For that matter, there's nobody that has the defense starpower. The charges have Joey Bosa Melvin Ingraham Derwin. James I mean they're loaded? I'm not sold on tyrod Taylor their quarterback I think he's a good game manager. He did get the buffalo bills into the playoffs a few years ago, but if you're gonNa if you're telling me that tyrod Taylor has to go win some games for the charges this year, which he probably will have to do I don't know if he's capable do that. Takes us to the Denver. broncos sexy pick a lot of people seem to be on their bandwagon. I'm not one of them. Maybe I'm missing something. I think drew lock their second year. quarterback has a bright future, but I don't think he's ready yet to take that next dramatic step that they're going to need him to take to get them to second place in the division. Let alone the playoffs. He started five games last year. He was good. He was okay. Nothing spectacular, strong arm, no doubt about it accurate passer, but there were some issues that cropped up. That happened to him in college. Where if you get some pressure on him? his mechanics. Kind of went south is fundamentals. Fundamentals went south and mistakes happen as a result I think with defenses now preparing for him specifically to defend him as their quarterback. They're gonNA come up with some things. to to really deal with drew lock and I think he's going to struggle as a result, have a decent year, but I'm not sure he's going to have the kind of year that they need them to have to be the second place team in the AFC, and that takes us to the Las Vegas Raiders and why I like the raiders as the second, place team. People Vinnie. What are you crazy going from? Where they were last seven nine to second place in the AFC west, while I love of quarterback, continuity and Derek Carr represents that for the raiders. He's going into year three in Jon gruden system two years under Jon Gruden where he threw for more than four thousand yards. I think the raiders did a great job. Improving around him. Henry Rugs I think he's GonNa make a huge difference at wide receiver. I think defensively with all the new players that they brought in Cory Littleton Nick Wykowski Maliki. Collins Darius Randall a lot of. A lot of new players that I think are going to make a huge difference on that defense to at least make them competitive, think that combined with Derek Carr who's poised to have a huge year in year three hundred Jon Gruden and his sixth year, essentially as Raider starter is enough to get them those two extra wins. I believe that they'll. They're gonNA need to be the second place team in the division, and that will get them in the playoffs so I see them surprisingly as second place team in the AFC west. Remember where you heard that I get. They're not billy. White shoes chats. Welcome back to Vegas. Nation, first and ten your Monday to for all raiders, news and analysis on Monson your your host and a cover, the raiders, the Las Vegas Review Journal. We were talking earlier about where the raiders fit in the AFC West Puzzle and surprisingly and I might look like an idiot. You know six months from now, but that's good. That's all good i. don't have a hard time dealing with that. It's happened before, but I've got the raiders as the second place team. Team I think the chargers are going to be a third place, and I got the Denver Broncos in fourth place. That could all flip flop. We all know that so you. You know where you heard it first and you know who to hit up. completely reverse from that I'm a big boy I could take but for the raiders to get to second place. A lot of a lot of things have to happen right. One of which is a lot of young players need to step up. And be productive but I. When you look at the young players. They're going to be counting on Trayvon. Mullen Cleveland Farrell Damodar net guys like that I. Love the pedigree. I ll Tantrum US hunter. Renfro these guys came from Big Time College Program's Alabama Ohio State Clemson. They'll be ready for it. This isn't anything unusual. They've been there. They've done that. They've seen big games. I think they're up to the challenge, but to me three. Three players in particular to really step up for the raiders to get to where I think they're capable of getting them. Let's run through them. I think Cory Littleton the linebacker that they got from the Los Angeles Rams has to have a big year. He fits exactly what the raiders wanted in a linebacker that can cover the past that can defend the run. He's a leader. He's played on a super bowl team with the rams. He's young. He's he's productive I think that he that he fills a huge huge void. There were terrible at linebacker last year. I think Cory Littleton helps solve that along with. Nick Wykowski from the Chicago bears. The also got, but of Cory Littleton has a big year and does what he's capable of doing I. think that defensive dynamic changes. I also think Qlayla, Farrell, their second year defensive and from Clemson needs to step it up, you know. They drafted him fourth overall. They knew that he wasn't that. Pass rush singular guy that was going to get after the quarterback and put up. All kinds of big numbers in terms of.
