"It's going to present an entire new set of problems and it's going to be a pick your poison and that's what you have to ask the ravens to do. They have one of the best rushing attacks in nfl history over the last two years. You don't want them to run the ball. You want them to throw it so if the ravens are able to take the low hanging fruit and throw to the outside and beat you that way. That's what you wanna live with especially in week one dot that brings up an interesting point like now you're talking about you know having safety second kind of had a vision. That seems like kind of a little bit what we're talking about at the beginning of like having those athletes on the field you know you mentioned the joy the dairy james so curious if you kinda think yo maybe. This is a question we answered. If you think the raiders have that have the personnel will be able to do that. And you know when you're talking about it. Mind started working as i think about a guy like tam using a guy like divined diablo. Who both you know converted call. Safety is granted you know transistors. The nfl hasn't been smooth smooth with the muse. Getting hurt diablo. Also spending time on the on the injured list this year in training camp. So i'm just curious. Think the raiders can kind of match up well. How do you think there be able to execute what you're talking about as far as slow neck. I don't think trevan. Mary is a key player. There i am not sure what his situation throughout camp has been or what his back has been. He's been doing. Yeah yeah he's been. He's been healthy camp on everything that's kind of been everything is said about him. It's been been positive. Most part the only yulia potential issue is. He's kind of been playing a lot. More than that. One high alignment and more the free safety salute further from the box. Beyond definitely think. Mary was another guy you know i. I was caught until like a poor mansoor james where we talked just talking about. Obviously so i feel like you. Kind of yeah. It's definitely someone who's gonna who can impact the game there for sure america's a player that i had my i'll on four baltimore with sean elliott heading into last year of his contract. Think mary is a confident player. Coming downhill and takes good pursuit angles. He's not some huge hitter. And you know he doesn't quite have the the physical kind of presence. That derwin james has but i think he can be a factor there. I think he's quite underrated in terms of What he did at his pro day in having a bad back us a guy at first round great on might clear cut number. One safety santana muse. I think is interesting Feel like he can play a little bit too undisciplined at times in terms of executing assignments. So i think he's a player that might be able to take be taken advantage to an extent and the other the other player that i really like in the raiders depth chart you mentioned divinely. Oslo who i think is going to be an outstanding tight end matchup player and i think he could definitely help the box. But also cleveland feral. I think we'd be good in a matchup against baltimore. He is such a strong defender of such heavy hands. Maybe trying to line him up inside. So i mentioned melvin ingram a couple years ago for the chargers and since max crosby and unique in seemed waseem guys are going to be taking a ton of snaps and maybe farrell doesn't quite fit into a gus bradley. Defense like You know my podcast is like to say a players. You want to fit your scheme like a square hole and a square peg but sometimes you end up you know taking over for another jam another coach and you gotta around peg in a square hole doesn't quite work out but i think that if you line up feral inside i think that's a really interesting matchup especially over bozeman or over a whoever. The ravens trotted left. Guard whether it's going to be tire phillips Patrick mccaw or excuse. Me ben powers or ben cleveland and right now feels like it might be ben power. Starting week one. That's that's a couple of weeks out. Still but i think those are all interesting players and i think. That'd be a good way for the raiders to take advantage of cleveland feral skillset and maybe overwhelmed. Someone inside to make plays. I'm going to have to warn you. Their spencer you might get about twenty raider fans interventions for bringing up cleveland farrell. That that's like a no. But no i think you bring up a good point like i've kind of talked about it a little bit to move neck guy inside what he can do. I'm honestly i'm not in the camp of a clue Cleaning farrell hater. So it's nice to hear somebody else when the opposition you know actually kinda a little worry about that guy a little worried about having a game plan so i'm glad to hear that for sure. I really like coming out of the draft. He's got huge hands. I think he has a ton of stopping power in those hands. And he's able to shock lock and get vision two ball carriers and when you're asking somebody to go tackle gus edwards. Two hundred forty pound back is going to be carrying the the. No rb one workload all likelihood starting out especially. He's the kind of guy that can do that He hasn't come along as a pass. Rusher he's not the twitchy est of athletes. And i understand you know. A lot of raiders. Fans were upset about you. Know job josh allen being available and some of the other options i didn't i didn't hate the feral bic hasn't turned out to make me look like a genius. So take that with a grain of salt. But i clean farrell's a guy that could absolutely be a factor in the run game especially on first down especially on second down on third and short but he hasn't really been able to take over as a true pass rusher. You're kinda reminds me of ways of jalen ferguson. Who the ravens have on their roster. He just made the fifty three man. Roster he's been you know the media bubble player defensively so to speak. So i think they have a little bit similar skill. Said they in bullrushes lockout against the run. They can run pretty well especially crashing backside in pursuit of three even want to run some outside zone and farrell's on the backside of it i i like him more than unique in goch way against the run and at the end of the day you know. I don't anticipate in dock way having terribly great impact especially against the run for the raiders against the ravens in week. One gawk player. We will talk about and we'll get into a little further. But you know. I think there's definitely alignments and assignments that i would prefer farrell in from from what i saw last year and i only watch. Maybe like five or six raiders games in full. So i'm sure there was plenty of bad tape. That raiders fans hate and they wanted to be a big sack guy but hey it's not who he is and again you don't wanna you don't wanna look at a guy who's much more effective against the run and be mad that he's not a good pass rusher sometimes you gotta appreciate what they are but it's hard to do that when he takes one of the top of the draft and they don't turn out to be the high level impact pro bowl type guy like feral. Yeah i mean. Hit the nail right on the head with cleveland. But i mean like you said against the ravens joe especially. The rains run a lot a lot. A lot of play action a lot kind of boots. Maybe seventy nine guy..

"And they're only gonna keep five linebackers. I mean you have cory littleton. He's going to make the team team tantrum us. I'm pretty sure it's gonna make the team denzel. Perryman was just acquired and kind of a similar player. Ask mcaliskey so. I think he's going to make the team. Obviously more would be on the team and then it comes down to divide diablo. Nick wykowski and jason white. And i mean i'll be honest like that is a tough decision to make and where i'm looking at is i kind of think you know if you cut mcaliskey at least with him. You don't have to risk him getting picked up on waivers like you would with divine diablo jason white which white since they're younger players they'd have to go off waivers and especially with jason white. Who's had a great preseason if you put him or if you cut him another team could easily come in and swoop them up and then the raiders are sol with cook hausky. It's still a risk because you're going to cut the guy and he will be a free agent what you can kind of come to a little under the table or handshake agreement of. Hey we might. We're gonna cut you but that's just so we can put somebody. Maybe like jane wider nicholas moro on injured reserve so that we can give them an injury designation and don't have to risk losing them obviously. There's the risk of moral not being exactly thrilled with that and wanted to go play somewhere else or sites using make more on nick. Witkowski wanted to go somewhere else. But i think that is really an option. That the raiders can explore. You know they did it in two thousand nineteen. I think again with the with josh moro and i think witkowski could be a similar situation where they end up maybe cutting him and then bringing them back or just cutting him completely like i said denzel. Perryman has a similar skill set. You know chelsea's probably a little better than coverage whereas paramount's better run-defender but between littleton and muse and diablo and even morrow those are kind of your coverage linebacker so with the raiders are looking for are maybe that guy in the middle that can be that thumper in the run-defender and perryman has that same skill set and chelsea's been injured for the last two or three weeks. Maybe threes little dramatic. But it's at least been too. Well i think you kinda go with the guy that you just acquired the guy that does have some familiarity. Playing with gus bradley. And i mean. I legitimately think you know quick hausky could be on the chopping block and i mean i think we're due for surprise in in this position group no matter what it's a it's a group full of a lot of guys that are sold good players nobody. That's a real standout and so many injuries just makes this complicated. Because if you put the guy on i are. Now you're gonna end to season or you can have or you're gonna have to have them make the roster and take up a roster spot which could end up screwing you out somebody else so the linebackers going to have a lot of drama and i think we'll be right up to the deadline until the raiders. Make that decision so get the ob on the edge of our seats for a while when it comes to the lb's moving on a safety. And i think this is another position that gets a little complicated with the numbers right. Last year they kept three. I think they'll keep four this year if they do keep three than i think. They'll keep an extra linebacker co calc- will be safe. But i have a feeling. We're gonna go with four and i think dramatic jonathan abram. Those guys are hands down on the roster. And i think tyrod gillespie is gonna make it and i think down eleven is going to make it as well just because of what he's able to bring on special teams which leads me to believe that karl-josef and roderick teamer is going to be The cuts the biggest surprise is coming from there is going to be karl-josef boss obviously and when it comes to karl-josef joseph he's a guy that i've liked a lot guy liked when the raiders drafted him back in. What was it twenty. Sixteen or whatever and you know. He's been when he's been on the field. I think he's been a good player but the problem is i think he's been off more than he's been on it and even this year is dealt with a lot more injuries and dealt with injuries and training camp already and again i keep saying keep harping on it. We all know how much patience. Jon gruden has for injuries. And i think that's ultimately it cost them as well as not being able to play special teams. Special teams aren't supported. As i'm thinking or maybe kirie glaspie is gonna get going to be the special teams contributor from this group that may be karl-josef gets the nod over dow levitt. Who like i talked about last week doesn't bring much as actual defender so we'll again you know you're gonna hear me. Keep saying we'll see what happens. But i would not be surprised to see on the outside of the raiders roster anwar wrapping things up with cornerback. And i mean. I don't really think this one is going to be much of a surprise anymore. But it's never lawson now the raiders. Do get some help because never lost the suspended. And they can't cut him but at the same time he doesn't count towards towards the roster counter or anything like that so it's not that big of a deal for these first two weeks in the raiders to see what nate hobbs look like in the first two weeks to see if they want to bring back lost or not. But i'll tell you i think nate. Hobbs has just taken this position. I think talked about that last week too. I think nate is earned the earned the starting cornerback. Spot earned the starting slot. Cornerback spot and i mean yesterday for lawson i think put the nail in the coffin. It felt like and. I don't think they work because it was a preseason game but it felt like the forty niners were targeting loss and like they had a game plan of like. Yeah once twenty six on the field. Just throw at them like he got. He gave up a few catches and the benefit of a benefit of a few drops. As well and i mean it was just an ugly game for them. And it's a guy that you know. He's a veteran player. He kind of he is what he is at this point and i don't know if you can really expect anything more from them. So i got a feeling that nevin lawson's days are raider over and even when his suspension is up and week three. I don't know if he'll be back on the team. That's going to do it today.

"Half million. The jalen restart is do well. I think Jaylen starts season on injured reserve That's just my gut feeling at this point. Senior with a walking boot couple of days ago so the key starts a season on injuries. Irv advise the a little bit of time with him. and i think Agai trae reagan makes the team but whether he suits up or not not quite sure. I think you'll be okay. with alec ingold As fullback and kenyan drake and josh jacobs as your as your two backs Each game You know to. Will you know trey if he if he's on the team get suited up. I don't know. I don't know if you necessarily need to especially with kenyan drake s- What he brings to the table his ability to catch. I think almost negates having to have that third running back. But i think for now anyway Jalen is on the injured reserve and trail. Mix with jim. Okay tell you ed. The wide receivers. We already figure henry rugs. Brian edwards hunter renfro zeh jones. Willie snead all make the team. I think they're keeping sakes so you think john brown was out there today. Getting another look at do you think that they keep with john brown or they brought in store owner. Dylan's donor to talk with the media after the game. Is this guy going to get a look or will it be somebody like. Dj turner has been running back. Kicks what do you think about this. I think you don't sleep on jones truck Okay before i answer that question. I'm gonna ask you really quick. I'm going off track yard. Because you mentioned quarterback vinny end you real quick question. Had marcus mariota played in one of these three games. Or maybe two games in looked really good Any i idealogical. You think would nathan peterman. Absolutely be on the fifty three come tuesday Not necessarily. I don't think it's necessarily the case that he is going to be on. The still is if you put through waivers. Is anyone gonna pick. What would you that. I don't think the team he threw five interceptions for nate. Peterman would be on the. If you're confident than petering. waivers put him on waivers. And then bring it back on your practice squad because you can you don't there's no restrictions on practice squad adore. You could have accrued ten years in the nfl and still been on the practice and silvio the practice. So there's your third quarterback not taking up fifty three van roster spot Because i don't even think you're going to address three quarterbacks in the game so maybe that's the way they do. I what do you think yeah at i. It's kind of a thing that i've been thinking about the more i see and play in the preseason is. Do you really need. I mean marcus. Mariota is there. He's been you know not really playing and practicing right now. But i think that the raiders are confident enough in him as a quarterback to be able to hold down the fort if anything should happen to car and if you do wanna make more room for somebody like keep john brown and and like we're talking about and maybe keep one of those other guys on the wide receiver department because greg olsen said. That's where the i think. A lot of troubles going to come when they make the cuts. He said it's going to be hard to figure out who has to go. The maybe they keep seven wide receivers and drop a quarterback. Go back down to two. It's possible i. I don't think anyone safe and i'm ready for some surprises so Ed go ahead and tell me now. What do you think about that. Wide receiver high. I think they're gonna go john brown for one reason. And one reason only mark stone of the golden knights is nicknamed donor and it is against the rules of the review journal to have to professional athletes in the in town. Both with the name stone. Or so i've gotta go. John all right let's move onto the o. Line vinnie. i think they're keeping eight. And i think we know. Andre james denzil good john. Simpson richie incognito. Alex leatherwood colt miller. Those guys are safe. Which brings me brandon parker. Nick martin are those the two other names that will round out the eight men making this roster john simpson makes it. I think nate arches me. And i think that Nick nick makes it on nick. Martin makes it as far as the swing tackle position and the brian parker probably had inside track. But i would not be surprised. Whatsoever if the raiders brought in somebody whether it's off the waivers waiver wire or in some sort of a trade. I'm not quite sure. There's a whole lot of confidence in that. Swing tackle position at the moment so add. Let's move onto these defensive bags because you had answered that so eloquently. We have right now on my list. I think they're keeping ten between cornerbacks and safeties. I think we have merrick. Abram hobbs gillespie robertson hayward molin our net and then that's where i have some question marks because we know that nixon's injured. Karl joseph will likely make this team. And does i'd say johnson make this team You know in light of the fact that nevin lawson will miss a couple of games. i just. i'm looking down the roster. And i'm trying to figure out who would be that tenth person. What do you think it. I don't think he makes. I mean if they base it on today which is kind of inverted him. Obviously but there's a reason they only brought half the team here and that was because here's your opportunity. We have to get things on film so they go back and look those film. i think they're going to cringe a little. I think the only chance a job spaces if like you said we know lawson's out and and there's injuries in maybe you keep them to begin with. But i don't know if you do that. I think binny's also make some really good points in terms of trying to creatively manufacture the best fifty three. And i think you'd have to make an argument in the room. A really hard argument to keep isaiah. Johnson i think you can look like you said okay. Do you keep an extra wide receiver. You keep an extra swing tackle like at this point. I think they're pretty good. Those first six or seven guys. I would move on from him and i'd probably take another wide. Receiver swing death. I'd probably make by move there and move on from him. And i don't think right now that there's any questions when we look at defensive tackle defensive ends i think those are pretty much all solidified because i haven't walkway crosby. Coons feral massive on the defensive. Ends mccoy thomas. Jefferson hankins dairies. Filon for the defensive tackles vinnie. Just finish this. My question marks lie with the linebackers because of so many injuries. Because of what's happening there right now. On the fact they just brought in denzel perryman. We don't know about some of these guys timelines when they come back Aside from you know knowing that littleton moral cookhouse gear their divine diablo. Who finishes out this six linebacker position. You have five guys there now. How how does this get rounded out. Yeah i think that you know I think divine diablo. Team steamatic tanner amusements the team. Obviously denzel perryman wrecks the team. And you just gotta hope that nick wykowski gets back healthy asap. Because i think i think they'll be okay with quick. Hausky cory littleton Denzel perryman and then. Obviously you know. You're you're looking at Tantrum mason and divine diablo behind them. It's gonna be a little bit tricky. They need to get nicholas moral back asap and once they do. I think they'll be fine but getting him back That bridge building that bridge to get back tomorrow is going to be a little bit dicey because you know what i saw today of divinely. Oslo lot rough around the edges. A big learning curve for the rookie from from virginia tech. And and tanner mrs well. It's it's hard to sit here and say that you'd have a whole bunch of confidence in playing those guys in extended Snaps at this point in their learning curve aso i was just wondering they're like the linebackers. The depth is concerning like you said there have been a but we'll see how it all pans out and that'll do it for us here today for ed and vinnie. They're both down in santa clara. Make sure you check out everything that they have put down in print and online at vegas nation dot com and as well as give him a follow of any in your and ed greenie. We'll be back around monday night. Football when the raiders. Face the ravens for the post game editions. But.

"They were saying the everything and malcolm coons like his look at this point said to say he's not a viable against the run notice respect to the young man he's gonna make the team as situation pass rusher But yet he like date when they ran into his eyes. They were getting everything that they wanted like he was. He's not making any places not detaching. It'll come like he'll be able to clean that up eventually. You know but like right now. That's not his forte. It is what it is and Jerry green was also looking pretty lost at times. I've been he's probably stronger physically than malcolm coons but he's been he's been blowing it the entire preseason so Agrees not making the team. He's not definitely not But you know obviously explained his butt off Plant putting his heart and soul out there but you know at the end of the day you gotta make progress in any progress from jerry green so more power too but probably not gonna make the team and then So like really. The defensive ends had a serious serious time And then you also see like divine. The album experts out there right like at best reserves. Macaroni in probably going to be a practice squad guy if even makes the final roster at all if he if he's even kept around divine diablo he's gonna make jevon white got out divine diablo. Like i'm gonna have to go back and really really really like watch it. I just didn't he was just like out there dame really too much crazy you know things for him but But yeah. I bet. That's why i put out a tweet earlier. This is a great game for the raiders. They're seeing a bunch of exotic stuff now. They got the film on it now. They can bradley considering meetings. But like okay. This is how we play it. This is what happens when we don't do this right right like that's good for that reason. It's getting some young guys who might not area chance to see the field on defense again until like next year next. Preseason valuable wraps where they can like blog those things away in a mental process. So i think it was a good game for the raiders. Yeah thought. Diablo made a good play on in the red zone at the goal line. I thought he he did a good job in zone. Which gave me your privacy on all twenty two. You'll like that play at the committed tackle rhetoric correctly and yet yet. Good break on it. Kinda showed everything he showed in college. Coverage of those good player at play stood out to you probably twenty to You know one thing. I said evasively. General coy. Look like you know he's gonna be somebody come on talking about jerem jerem going against you know second string. Of course i mean. Germany was making he just needed gives them rust off his belly like he's he's good. Yeah now that was not fair Yeah we'll talk about. We'll talk about someone like the Yeah this strategy of who. They're playing and why they were doing this. You know later on. Yeah but we all knew. Jeremy goes and make the team like when when the other ones out there man. You look really good. I mean because the niners played there once so you you look at first off the applause What was interesting to me is. I thought that i saw him. Playing a couple of instant reactions. Wanted to that sounded like or have felt like i was seeing a lot of djerma quite playing like knows garlic one technique which is like generally been three technique in his career. So i thought that's interesting so that to So we'll see how that shakes out bad bets. We'll find out. I mean if they're talking about like nickel pass rush front that it makes sense that jomo gravy playing one technique in gaza. Solomon thomas gloom for only the lighter guys. Can you know play that through As as russia's But then germ complain either. Like whatever put him technically and then the other thing is i noticed. The raiders are playing tons of cover one man coverage down the field So not sure why that was. Maybe i'll try. I'll be able to figure it out. from watching the film like with the point of that but tons of tons of cover one outside leverage corners man posting the in the middle of the field. They're like officing a lot of that on. tv copy. So i don't know why that was but definitely a departure from the norm. Okay yeah yeah. I got you know the defense of course again the iran over but i mean they played the whites that the niners they put their ones out there like yes. Sununu was playing in samuel defense. The jimmy g. like they got their starting off his line there like every everything like. Yeah davis was one ramos needs the starter for them like so. Once the flipside on offense Will flip offense real quick to the flip side off his offense when they had their start bag batters starters they could bought ause pretty funny like the like course warner's everywhere i swear like every tackle. He was around it like us somewhere like he ended up in the picture. Some house crazy like it didn't matter like where the play went like when the when the play ended saw. Fred what you see fifty four around. It is crazy so they had all their starters out there. So i don't eat the john sips the play like i was trying to find johnson's evening play like so. He didn't play so on offense. It was really a lot of you know the a lot of the back of john brown play which is interesting. That was seen john bland. Play willie snead not playing. That was very strange Especially with a zeta-jones not playing either. That was very interesting to kind of say that kind of made a statement right there that say jones made steam right john brochure. Babies like on the fringe right so It was interesting with that but like the offense. It was basically the threes all game. It wasn't no twos in there either. Besides john brown. Jim brown's the only potential to cause. We'll see dan jumping at all at any point Was allegation gold in. It was just the guy grow ship. Yeah and it was. It was nothing and they couldn't do anything early on doesn't mediate you got vote. You've you've got their backup offense line. They're not messing with any tavon. Kinloss destroy lester. Con- you know what i mean. That's that's like that's like him in the sec. Going against fau or something he feels. He's going as lester cotton so it was nothing really there to even watch our office to be honest zoo that i saw the first team will because thirteen Be like thirty four ten Damn close right. Because you know. And i think room felt that way too. He ran the ball. I the really like three times. So i felt like the office just came there to show up and if something happened it was fine and they really wanted to see with the defensive players. They have on the fringe. Look like i felt like they played more defensive. Guys that actually will play or have a chance to play in the season. Like an offense that Decides giambra john. Brown did play so he was a guy out there. That might plan is season if they keep trae rates even though he really the best game today amines i mean who knows go back once taper off initial watch Insist those guys didn't really stand out. It's gonna be interesting to see you know who actually makes his team. Who actually played. 'cause i don't know it's going to make this team from heap. For many scott's dealing snow in iraq had a good game you can add a better game than he had guessed. The rams made some good catches a couple of depots at tight end Which one scoring drive butchery. He'll he'll not he would not bad. I mean bush was. He was good at wilson leaned on him and byu. So you just go to byu. The these been throwing the ball more to alice..

"The physical about okay. There there's a couple of guys on both sides of the ball out say more on defense yet who are gonna make team. They played gay in this game. Gatt malcolm combs you'll get divine diablo. Yeah okay these guys played the entire game. You know mountain coups has a a lot of reps in preseason. Say he played fifty snaps on defense sixty stamps on say divine. Diablo played sixty cents on defense. They might not have fifty sixty snaps for the rest of the year. Getting a backup. You know unless there's some major injury in front of them guy. So that's why i really loved it. These guys are seeing in there. Seems some fun like you know. Some good scheme. Yeah to gruden said they weren't. They were not prepared for the zone. Read stuff and the funny part about is now you crack me. 'cause you you've been watching trae lands trailing All of these. But i've seen on twitter. All these beat reporters they keep on asking shanahan. Why aren't you running with trae lance winds running and then they came out with like the low quarterback ryan package for so they. They caught the raiders off guard. They were not prepared for that in a show. You know I can just jump into versus if that's okay with you So really this. This this Defense what what came down to. It was the defensive ends not having any idea how to play the run that they were seeing and they were seeing a lot of volume in terms of the different plays different Actions if they were getting blocked down kicked out if they were just getting baseball guy if they were getting trying to get reached on the edge if they were being unblocking just read as you know like.

"Safety in the nfl yet whereas like divine diablo. Like maybe you know ten years ago. He's definitely quite safety in that evolving it out So yes i guess so. I i agree. He's got the talent. I just don't know if it's gonna be like missing all this time. Mrs all this camp. Is he going to be able to hit the ground running. You know nate Wrong may be drawn the up cantu. We'll see ya the big hops hater. I told everyone. I'm very happy. And i and i never said he was going to be good player. I was just like how quickly is this. Gonna work out front but looks like it's a it's arabic will wait till on james comes in. I'm sure is trying to retrieve my tweet play. Yeah they're gonna be they're gonna be ready to cover for you mentioned battery Yeah so. I think that's probably it on defense. You know I expect to see targe lesbian as a strong safety lot I check to see you know a little bit more competition we're gonna find out who's the final corner on the roster he's robertson Like these are playing on the outside. Ebbing bleeding wilson will also in there. So we'll see between those three guys. You know rounds out the cornerback position on the outside nee obstacles to have it locked in obviously They got some. they have like two weeks. I think excuse me leeway.

"How it's going to work. The app has fraud. Detections tied to the cdc that will thwart anybody's attempt from trying to put up a card which is also a federal crime by the way so Don't get yourself on that radar. Just play the rules. The stadiums also going to have onsite vaccination area where they can a first shot. And if you get that for shot and you're partially vaccinated you're still required to wear your mask inside but you will be able to go in if you're partially vaccinated so that's important community ambulances carrying out the onsite. Vaccinations on game days Those are going to be a service. That the raiders are providing and like i said earlier kids that are between the ages two and twelve who aren't eligible to receive the vaccination can still go to games but you have to wear a mask now. All of the details are up on. Big nation dot com. So please go over before you tend to make sure you have everything in order that you need to have done and this is probably going to be what could be a model for some other teams going forward and the nfl. Like the saints have plan as well You have to be max Excuse me you have to be maxed or have a proof of vaccination to go to a saints game and i expect more teams to be putting things out like this as the year goes on so expect to see that with other teams and again with the raiders. Being a front runner now to get into. What's happening this week. I said there's going to be scrimmages. The team is going to be playing against the rams down in thousand oaks for the next couple of days leading up into their saturday. Preseason game returning for the raiders. Marcus mariota is back. Darren waller's back carl. Joseph is back so those are just a few of the players that i know returned to practice on tuesday at the raiders headquarters odia divine. Diablo is another player that i wanted to touch on. That has also returned to practices for the raiders. I don't expect him to get fool involved yet but it is good to see him and now as promised. Here's my interview with zinc for kasey. A good friend of mine works at sirius. Xm nfl radio channels as well as the nhl channels and you can catch sick every day.

"Try to get marcus. Mariota trade going. There's been talk about that. Espn reported the right now. They're not thinking trade and maybe they do. They would think about nick. Foles who frank writes. Your head. coach is one super bowl with. we'll see but something to keep in mind for certain If makes his team wasn't mean divine. Diablo what does that mean. And he's injured. Maybe they do what they do of muzak here and stuff on the. I r one way to go but something to think about somebody. Has jon gruden about his two thousand nineteen class thirty guys and you may all well. They should be the leader. The you know the guys on the team. Jon gruden talking what he's trying to do. Say how young there but don't make an excuse. john. John makes too many excuses. And if you don't agree with me is not paying attention. He has over the years and yell. Thirty quarterback your frigging Ref guards thirty eight. You're not that young okay. And yeah thirty year. Old quarterback eighth year quarterback. You're not that. Don't use an excuse. But i don't know if he is but you know he says his but you know he chose to be cute and that's fine. They're america's maryoto package is that you know they're gonna use him a little bit that that didn't really work. They didn't really introduce that last year. But that'd be a great little wrinkle. The more wrinkles is offense can have is really going to help. And i think that's what i'm hopeful about this team. I think this team is going have a lot of wrinkles. And i think that's going to help. And you know with the improved defense. That can go on way. That can get you to the ten double digit wins. That fan expects so there you go. There's a show again. I'm not here to break any records. I'm not here to impress anybody. I'm here to give you the goods and when the goods are done done and that's our show. Go enjoy your life. I got more work to this.

"He's definitely comfortable around me. Comfortable around dressy then. He's hugging him joking with him. You know all that and those are all good songs for hopefully being able to give we. I wish everybody could catch one hundred balls. You know i really do but again. It's hard to take away from. Darren when he's been so productive and and good for us you know if darren had you know w r next to his name and the depth chart no one would care. You know the fact that it's a tight end. Why don't we get to you. Know that just is what it is. You know if if if henry can show when we put the pads on. And all that which i'm fully confident he will. Yeah absolutely. i could see that happening. Here's some thoughts as my takeaways. I wrap things up from training camp. It really interesting to start seeing how the nfl is dealing with cova protocols with players with media with staff how things are starting to come back to the norm that we're used to and i'm going to tell you it won't be one hundred percent everything that you're used to but as for me we're starting to see it returned to normalcy. We're starting to see that. We can be in the same rooms. As jon gruden derek carr booth came into. The room is the first time i hadn't been on zoom call since march twenty twenty which was pretty amazing being that we're now to look these guys in the eye. We're able to develop that report with them. And that's something that i've said all along is very important for reporters to do when we're trying to report and bring back facts to you about a team is when we can look somebody in the i. It's not just about the answer that they're giving it's about the body language it's about the presence that they have when they're answering it. You can tell if somebody liked or didn't like your question right off the bat so it's always a good thing to be able to see that return for us to be able to speak to all the players and the coaches and to have that accessibility again. It's really important for what we do. And i'm glad that i was able to see that as far as being on the field i tell you a lot of hungry readers out there. A lot of aggressive raiders out there a lot of readers that are listening and paying such close attention to the coaches and all that they have to offer as they get into training camp. You see so many fresh faces as well with the rookies and undrafted free agents. That were brought in this year. And i'm still looking for who is going to spark. I'm keeping my eyes out on jimmy morrissey on the offensive line. I'm keeping my eyes. Out on dylan's donor in the wide way. Receiver department dj. Turner's well. who. Jon gruden mentioned. And i'm looking courses see. What a lot of the defensive rookies that they brought in or going to do malcolm coons when divine diablo comes back. Maybe we can get more of a glimpse of him in the coming weeks. But i really can't wait for everything to play out. Especially as jon gruden mentioned earlier and you could hurt this on the i ten. Podcast if you subscribe to that. He talked about the secondary and in that secondary with tyree. Gillespie coming in with demon our net would nevin lawson with guys like casey hayward with trayvon molin And so many other names. That i could just go on and on and how they're going to shake out who is in what position. What a nickle package looks like. Who's going to be up there when they're playing three deep. It's one of these things that we don't know yet and we're going to have to wait and see how it all plays out in camp and so to me. That's the most exciting thing to be watching right. Now is the secondary and the cornerbacks and safeties. How everything will play out for them. Because i was going to be an area that really needs to improve for the raiders to make a push for the playoffs and the twenty twenty one season.

"Podcast tidy thing here and up next. Jon gruden jon. Gruden greeted the media on the opening day training camp. Which was tuesday. that's yesterday for some of. You are listening to this on wednesday as it's released and jon gruden spoke about what it's going to be like this season for some faces that the raiders really are looking forward to seeing he talked about divine diablo's injuries while so i have an update on that in this podcast. So here we go with. Jon gruden and i what. He's looking forward to seeing out of a guy named nicholas more row. he's one of my most. I guess he might be one of my favorite players. This is his time. You know if you know anything about morrow you have to tell me where he went to college were exactly that is he comes from a very obscure background. If you watch them play college football he was returning kickoffs. He was playing all over the place. He comes to the raiders. He makes it as a rookie. He finds a way to get on the field and now he's got a chance. I think be a captain for us. I think he's got a chance to be a different difference maker force in the middle of our defense but time will tell. We got a long way to go. But i really like him. He's at a great spring. And i think he's on the rise. I think his time is right now. Yeah music can run. He can really ronnie played safety at clemson. No offseason program. No i'm not making excuses. It was tough on them and then he got hurt. So here's another draft choice that is completely an unsolved mystery but he's healthy. He's ready to go. Richard smith has been coaching linebackers for the last thirty years in this league. He likes him. He's going to be a special teams contributor. i know that Divine diablo tweak disney yet a knee procedure done. We expect to have him back in the next couple weeks. But here's another young guy that can really run the as a bright i really alert. i think understanding of football. And he's got a big upside for us. Ally ward angry banking great now among the out years ago. Where you're i don't know who does all these grades you know. We got a lot of grades out there. My grades aren't very good. So i don't agree with a lot of the greats but you know feral. He's a good player. he's he's a good player. He's unique i think he's unique because he can play right in he can play left and he's a good run defender. I think he's his best pass. Rush might be inside and you saw that against the jets when we allowed him to do that last year but certainly he's going to be competing. He and carl nasa who had had a really good spring You know they're going to have to earn their snaps and If you know clean no he will compete and you probably should count on him. Being a big part of this have no idea how much. I'm excited about. Those guys i i mean. I think i hurt my arm. I'll again rogues when you walked in today you know rugs got hurt. In the first game last year against carolina. I think he caught a bomb and then we ran a quick out in charlotte. He got hurt. Man is to play a little bit against new orleans but then he missed the patriot. Game missed a couple of games on any head cova. Look he's sees the difference maker with his speed. You know he can beat you bad with speed and i think The more experience he gets with their With brian with hunter renfro and waller and guys..

"They selected in the first round at mississippi state. Not that long ago. So i think you add morgan. He can be that cover one center fielder and they like to play a lot of cover three concepts. At least gus bradley. Does they bring him over to be their dc and you can have that center fielder. And he can do a solid job. Good ball skills. He has excellent range. He's not the biggest type of player but getting them in the second round. Lebed picking the second round. I think that's a solid yet. For the las vegas raiders. Malcolm coons at buffalo. Was our third round. Pick outside linebacker thought. This was a bit of a reach to be honest. And i guess they're looking for their next. Max crosby who got a little bit later than this in the draft but is six for two two hundred forty nine pounds. I saw him watched him against the run. He played a buffalo. He's getting pushed around a little bit. Not exactly a pick. That i am in love with and they haven't necessarily nailed outside of max crosby some of these edge rusher. They've drafted max. Crosby was a fourth round. Pick and twenty nine thousand nine hundred balling out for them in his rookie season and had a solid year. Lash clean them. Feral their first round pick and twenty nineteen is been quiet throughout his career. He's a solid player. Good run defender but not somebody who is giving them the athletic upside or just pass rush upside that you would expect a top five selection. The ad bring carl massive. They bring in sullivan thomas and you look at their funday. It's not terrible. But malcolm kunst the other selections at the guy would have went with that point in the draft but in the third round athens go divine diablo at virginia tech and then the fourth round they won with barry gillespie missouri safety. Both of these guys are safe. These diablo's more box type guy. Six foot three two hundred twenty five pounds could step down one of those hybrid type of defenders that the nfl's gravitating towards who can play that star role hybrid linebacker safety type of guy. Really really good and run. Support is a little bit. Undisciplined in coverage product is a little bit better but man he can really really lay the boom and just be a big physical presence. The back end of defense for team. So you know this is just has mike mayock written all over it to be honest less via. He's another one who six foot two hundred and seven pounds. Downhill run defender. Who really is just strong. Tackler i i think he could be a little bit better with his ball skills and just being able to be a playmaker on the ball but getting them in the fourth round here just to add to a safety group where you already got trevan mooring and you already selected divine diablo. They're labeled safeties. But i believe to be used more versatile away those second level defenders that we talk about. Because you still. John abram this team and i think you're going to see a lot of these guys will guys lineup as linebackers especially divide diablo. Along with cory littleton iniquitous cows and some of the other guys that they have on this roster and in the round out their draft. Nate hobbs illinois. Cornerback jimmy morrissey the pittsburgh center. I don't really have a lot on the corner back from illinois but morrissey he's a cool story kind of undersized he's about three hundred pounds smart type of player he got a call to go down to the senior. I think it was. It might have been thursday or friday. The senior saturday's already miss half the practices and all the times with his teammates. Thousand senior bowl. But jim nagy the director of scouting for the senior bowl director. There invited morrissey down because there were some injuries along the offensive line and more she was one of the replacements and more see to his credit went down. There didn't miss a beat ended up playing in. The game was pretty impressive to so getting him in the seventh round. He's just a tough gritty type of player. That's a solid addition for the raiders. I love this draft. I think the better players to be selected at certain picks. But if alice were can hit and be just a solid right tackle to kind of hold down that often line that just needed to be replenished because everyone got just shipped out outta town and it seemed like and him called miller and up being just presences on that often line for car. Then it's going to be much better than how i view it right now then. We have the chargers draft which i really did like run through the picks real quick and give a brief overview first round sean slater northwestern offense of tackles second round asante samuel junior florida state. Cornerback third round two picks. Josh palmer tennessee wide receiver. Trey makita georgia. Tight in fourth round chris rump duke outside linebacker. Fifth round brendan hamied nebraska. All of tackles six round the nickname in iowa inside linebacker and larry roundtree third missouri running back in the seventh round mark. Web georgia safety. Look they needed. To upgrade the offense of line for justin herbert. You're an evil to get one of the top. Two tackles in the draft in rashaan slater can now sliding be the left. Tackle along with brian. Balogh who's going to be on the right side added later in the draft. Hey me's whose fifth round pick and a pretty darn good player brendon. Thorne love this guy going into this draft. He can be a developmental guy. You can kick them inside if you really have to. But you made a focus to upgrade. That offense of line. And i really really respect. I also made a focus to bring in a cornerback who can come in and play man coverage effectively and help. This rinaldo hill coached defense. Because you have. Tim barron campbell. You have michael davis. We brought back brandon facing son. Who was the kid from..

"From the people around them from the istana temporaries now i think that is the secondary understands it needs leadership and i they his presence john. Hayman's kind of moving on its year. Three of his career aiming our net going do second year in going into the second year comes into a related situation and is going to lend some some leadership To that group. But i think that you see that really early on in his career so the third row and that a public dressing players right back toback of it had the seminar in eight x seventy nine. Who's of hash rusher. If you wealth from buffalo in eighty. I love this name and i love it. I had divine diablo of the safety. Who's now gonna play linebacker from virginia before we get into that analysis. I got a tax late late late late late late late saturday and Basically it was on another team jerem editor and a it was kind of half kiddingly off. Because he's like love. Those guys hit you know like he was any basically said to my favorite players in this draft and so they're obviously targets for that team as well of the raiders. Were able to get a two players in nfl circles. Were really highly valued in and around That area at a very quickly if you watch to three have dude fan. Yes elites and i'm not using that a likely. The leak pash rush. She'll bears layers to his what he does. Come off the edge. Bat is going to be able to sit in in a rotational basis. Right now you can see on film. It's translates the nfl. And if they use him strategically which. I which i believe that they well and get him on the field situations at eton accel. I think he's going to have an impact pretty early on. Yeah fourteen games the last two years so he yes production to back it up and i'm not gonna lie gonna sit here and act like ours an expert on malcolm crews for the pig pretty but like you said it washington play of you see the athleticism. You see the upside right. You see the potential that he has as we of talked about leading into the draft. Like you have a couple of needs you fill those needs now. The time to build out with the raiders. Right were these picks you add to. That was clearly an investment made in that offensive line at all. String that defensive line wall street pass rush now. You're getting on the prospect that has potential up to do that like you said that the rotational player to come in. Whether it's not going to be a lot of pressure on him right away because of the names in front of him where you can kind of adjust to the nfl level like you said figure out how to apply his unique ability to get out the passer into that's Defensive schemes. So there's definitely some upside there and i think it's again you can never have enough pass rushers. And if they believe cable. Pass rusher that after quarterback that then then then you add another once. You're stable of what should be a better defensive line and then you touch with divide the oslo that fuel do you know so a big bigger safety. That's gonna play closer. To the line of scrimmage. Like you said linebacker gus bradley smiliar camps. Yasser there what was what was your read on on that pick. If how rich yeah. And he's a player that i had been watching leading up to the draft. And your question that i had was safety. You know part of that you know and the is you safety as eli back. Vaults the raiders made it pretty clear the eat is going to play linebacker. Look at him from that perspective He's really intriguing. First of all for his size zero and it was licensed Was actually watching a bunch of him last night in his range being able to turn and run in coverage at a lot of times you in what i was watching us lineup. You're close elitest. Grimace highlight what he's going to be used. Your with a raiders and being able to to really use flash athletic ability at insights. A big football expect free to thirty ish and can run. I the only reason that he lasted around the edges of that. You know okay. He's doing making a little bit of a transition position transition. But it's clearly a gus bradley head of a kind of drastic and you mentioned name gap chancellor and i agree with you. There is whole defensive draft honest with you really had a lot of Bradley written all over it. You guys like who's who to me when you watch play. I don't wanna put too much pressure on it at all. But he's got a melvin ingram field to. I'm not saying smoking room. Let's not go too far but his ability to really get after the quarterback His body type really feels like a melvin ingram. Now he's got to be at every down player. He's got to work on his work on his run game at all that Right now like they one is gonna be. He should be able to get on the field just as a situational pass. Rusher toge- on the order back in you know. Diablo is a guy that really fits. Best bradley's show young athletes. Jake players that yes you you know you might move on You know from a safety to a linebacker in knowledge of but he's such a good track record Feel confident that that's happening. I keep stressing his as well. Sam To remember ron myla's new secondary coach. Bruce new linebacker of of these guys have track records in this In just a second have a big influence on checkerboard. In the huge influence. On let nate. Hobbs who were in the city thrived believe was And tired gillespie head. You know the from missouri. But we'll get to that in just a second. I think dablo emerged hands and with s bradley kind of commanding. That whole thing has a chance to be a productive player early sooner rather than later. Yeah absolutely absolutely likely touched on yet. physical measurable. She has the traits. He has the experience up. Landed a in a big time program average any tax. And you know like you said these guys have been there done it. They've they understand how to develop guys output guys how to help ease that transition players put them in roles were they to be successful That's i think what you're gonna see what's going to happen with the oslo of obviously koussa's well now with that said like in touch. We touched on the defensive. heavy draft. tweeted that out as you were tweeting of the pixelbook defensive as deep as a great job. All over all these draft picks. You're on top of everything that was happening. What did you make of high regularity that now. You've added multiple safeties multiple defensive backs in this draft. What did you what did you think what do you think is addition needs for this from for for special teams or bowl or both will play number one and then we need to preface all this by saying it's all going to happen on the brass that's worthwhile is gonna come together and and so all we really can do right now. Is your dry to what. I try to what i try to say. Is i You wanna be able to make sense. That make sense Did you crazy or reach or draft. A punter in rhode. Everything else is just you know. Are these guys going to be able to Do you feel like they said at and everything else has to take care of itself. And that's on the players on the coaching staff development. All.

I know that's my dream. We'll get Trevor sycamore on the show when we get them then we'll throw them on the air but the situation in green bay it was there a sp- a brighter spotlight on any other team. Not because of the draft picks just because of that cloud that was hovering over. Aaron rodgers desire to leave town and then you think about the gm. Brian go to kunst good art. Could he have had a more crucial draft before we get into all that this all started with the jordan love pick and i said before there are jordan loves in every draft. There's gonna be that guy who's pretty intriguing. And you'd probably say that trae lance was the jordan. Love of this draft. Didn't play against competition. How is he is he. Good as he not. Good that type of thing. We'll get into that in a second but we do have trevor cinema with us now senior. Nfl reporter with the draft network and co host of the locked on nfl draft. Podcast as well trevor. Welcome to the show Indulge me if you may let's start off with my rate is and It seems that mike mayock Just he's he doesn't care what the other thirty one teams do doesn't care what Scouting services do hill fall in love with a guy and he doesn't really understand draft capital and perceived value. He'll just go ahead and take reach. And i have nothing against alex leatherwood but for a guy that they probably could have gotten in the second round They've taken at seventeen when there were other bigger names on the board. What would you first of all say your assessment of Alex leatherwood tackle out of alabama. At seventeen you know outside of would gives you high ceiling. And i think that's what's to be the most alluring part of hammy. The former five star recruit has played a lot of different positions on the offensive line. Played right guard. He's played right tackle. He's played left tackle. And so he gives you a lot of versatility. He's a really athletic offense of lime and they just don't make them at that as letter it is. That's why you have such a high recruiting rating but with him bouncing around at a couple of different spots alabama. He really didn't have the chance to master any of those spots so he comes into the nfl little rock you only. He'll go back to right. Tackle he's played a before. And that's okay. But the raiders are starting in week one at right tackle. I think that He's going to get as close a little bit. It's going to be a little bit of a learning curve. A learning lesson for him in his first year you like it But like you said there. There were other offensive line off the board. I look at evan. Jenkins kevin jenkins was the offensive linemen that everyone continue to monitor the the las vegas raiders because it makes so much sense. You've got two years into starter. At oklahoma state is tape was dominating was a great finisher. He was of often and get bigger. Degroot was going absolutely love in here. They are and i. Guess the raiders you said. Hey he doesn't he doesn't play a big enough program because that's that's certainly what their mo is right now. The raiders are only picking guys in the top who played it big programs who may have had a lot of experience in senior players been captains leader team. And i get it. These are all really nice intangibles to have but it you ask me. The problem with the raiders draft process that they value those things. It's that they have those things as their main components of wider draft. The player those need to be x factor. Those need to be what puts you over the top. And i just feel like. That's not. What the raiders are doing. They're emphasizing coming from their big bigger programs. Having a lot of experience being an upperclassman being potential team tappan that is going above things like players who straight up have better tape. And i think that that's the biggest problem right now. With the raiders. Look at the last three drafts. Under mike nock is. They're not prioritizing the right thing to things that they look for their great and they matter but the tape matters more. That's that's what worries me the most about right now in control. We'd be las vegas raiders. No doubt about jenkins darah saw. Was there as well and You're right mayock. Love guys. Who win outlandish. When you look at cleveland farrell as well that to me the the worst of all so far was the damon arm. Our net picked Well i can get into that another time as i trashed the raiders. But they did end up with. Trevor may ring that to me save their draft and if you had flip flopped leatherwood and i wouldn't be saying peop- right now but what do you think just real quick about the rest of the bunch and i'm not gonna hold their feet to the fire and the later rounds but malcolm kunz divine diablo. Tyree gillespie nate. Hobbs jimmy morrissey any of those names intrigue you when i look at the raiders drop. I mean there's no doubt about it on marriage the best pick their e. He makes the most sense. I think he's going to have the biggest impact it. It was puzzling to me the rest of the players. They drafted because like divine the oslo. Like he's he's like he's a good safety piece but they they literally just won one round before they've already got johnny ramone the team. They signed carl joseph. They've got you as well and so it's like okay. You dropped another state. don't really understand. That probably could've addressed in somewhere else. And they go out in the fourth draft another sixty entire gillespie and. I think that these are good football players. But i don't really know how they get the raiders home you know. I don't know how much they do for you here because even if you're playing big nickel packages even if you have three safeties in there who's not playing which guy or are you given up on giving up on rooms after three years. Are you giving up on one of these free agents. You gave money to i i. It's just very confusing to me. The way that they drafted there. I thought the cocoons coons was very overdrafted in third round. Certainly they needed an edge rusher. But i was pretty shocked for him to be their choice there in the third round. And you know. They're other guys nate. Hobbs to more see you know. They're solid players but their fifth seventh round pick. So you're not sure how much you're getting from them anyways. It was just a strange draft. And i feel like we say that. Every year with the raiders and either one day. It's all gonna snap into place and it's all going to come down the pipe and they're gonna go see. I told you so where it's gonna crash and burn radi soon here and so i again. This is another draft class. Where i didn't find the player selected. But why were they select individually. I like their talent. But i didn't understand why they were on the same draft class especially for this team. So that's a big reason. Why i'm scratching my head.

"I just think you know, especially if they miss out or take somebody else at 10, I think that would be a great fit in a cover-3 scheme. I mean big he's athletic he is not his brother OB he understands that his brother had flaws I've talked to him was that he was probably over drafted because of his athletic profile and he knows that he was kind of soft and he is he very much doesn't he didn't say Thursday? But that's what like he intimated that a little bit and so I think that he really tries to be go that extra mile to be physical as a corner. Especially it comes to you know, defending the run and going up and attacking screens and then man like the draft really sets up pretty good for them to you know, maybe get a linebacker or a defensive tackle with that third round pick linebacker and d-tackle in this draft class. That's kind of where the strength is. There's not a bunch of high-end Talent at D tackle, you know, the one technique but there's a bunch of guys in that kind of range that I think would be good value there. It also linebacker depending on which guys fall Dylan Moses is probably going to be round and round 3 months bill Cox might be probably not especially after he test but he might be he's really really good in coverage and then there's just so many guys that you think one of them is probably going to be there at 75 wage. And then in the fourth round if they want to get a developmental free safety, you know, I don't I don't think they'll have a chance to get Trayvon more rig or Richie Grant with their second round pick. So I'm getting in developmental guy. Maybe it came Stearns who I'm showing your yeah aware of, you know covering the Big Twelve. He's somebody who I really like the upside of God, you know, maybe ardarius Washington and if the team is comfortable with his height, I really like the player and you know, there's there's other guys as well Divine Diablo timer last be from Missouri, you know, and then after that, you know, there's guys that I like at the one technique defensive tackle Cyrus Tonga from BYU on Dale Mabry somebody like to Darrell Slayton on day three from Florida 6 with four three hundred thirty pounds. He's got absolute levers as arms and he uses them really. Well. He's just he's dead. A great athlete and there's one techniques, you know, that's really where you can find Value in the draft on day three those guys cuz the NFL doesn't value. Who do you thinks the best defensive player in this draft man? That's a tough question. The highest grade that I have is a tie between J. Okay, Jeremih woosah, Carmella the linebacker safety hybrid and Micah Parsons dead. Those are the two highest grades that I have. Given their positional value. Those are not the guys that I would draft first. I would draft I actually have the highest film grade on Caleb Farley, but with the back injury and there's just no way that you can feel comfortable taking him that high and so he would kind of be my guy but I would take the two corners JC horn and Patrick Stewart an over the linebackers because of positional value package. Then I really really like. Jaelan Phillips the Miami Edge rusher as well, but he also has injury concerns. And so that pushes him down the board a little bit as well. He's the name that might be there at 44th because of all the the health issues and I mean, he would be a perfect type of blue star special for Jerry Parsons is so interesting because he seems to be such a polarizing Prospect so much talent..

"Promos habit he re match of the Eastern Conference finals and I by definition it is these were the two teams that played in the conference finals last year but no call I wondered just then I may have pretty much everybody else still on the roster but what I would call I lettered it loses a certain amount of luster does it not very Nelson producing the program is always standing he was he was a he was the catalyst was the cat was the head of the engine the spark plugs the whatever analogy wanted and he's not there so yes it is a rematch but it's not like a revenge game we're going to get revenge on the whole too because he's not there yeah revenge speaking of a sports for just a second so we have in our multi plex monitor thing here Virginia Tech is playing Notre Dame and I've talked before about my distinct yes good work disdainful here with this so quickly the university of Notre Dame I can't explain it I've just always rooted against them Virginia Tech Virginia Tech and I just saw a highlight here they've got a a quarterback or somebody in the secondary went by the name of divine Diablo so with that it the angelic devil the divine devil and he intercepted a pass at Notre Dame so there's all kinds of stuff on Twitter now you tell me again a guy named divine Diablo district off of past the Notre Dame of the shadow of touchdown Jesus will decided the apocalypse sodas touchdown Jesus start crying then imagine growing up with that name yeah the last name Diablo you're the devil literally no he's not live out your literally the devil and that's why you name of divine so the kind of balances it all off you never know fun on Twitter I do have a football star in just a second we'll get to that issue died Rudy Bosch died Rudy Bosch does that name mean anything to you does that strike a chord with you at all the last name Bosch does but I'm not sure about Rudy Rudy Bosch ninety one years old he was a decorated United States Navy seal he was I'm the original season of survivor he was the if you watched it back in two thousand and I did Rudy Bosch was the kind of crotchety cranky miserly at that time seventy two year old decorated United States Navy seal who was one of the most memorable characters if you will on that reality show in survivor of course is kind of the grandfather if you will of of the survivors of I remember Rudy Rudy Bosch here Richard hatch this is not going from memory you at Susan I don't number last name she was the truck driver from Wisconsin the hassle back without a later maybe season two or season three the boss is one of my all time favorites he was great human Richard hatch were about as different as you can possibly would you save over is different people as you can possibly imagine and so there are some amber gets to nine remember Colby Donaldson know who else keep going cat the Robert the whole whole Jenna Marasco Jeff okay remember Janice hawk too hot to sue hawk was yes Susan what was the truck revolution Callaway nope let's see yeah we have the Tom Buchanan rob Mariano now those guys must have been given the on board voted off early February Bosch dead at ninety one here later competed in survivor all stars at the age of seventy five who is the oldest competing member of the show so for those that was cut okay said that was the one that was the granddaddy of them all survivor was the one that got it going because if you recall it was the summer of two thousand and in the summer of ninety nine two thousand in that time frame you have survivor a on CBS and then you had to ABC's who wants to be a millionaire and they both debuted if not in the same summer within just a couple of months of one another and that really ushered in the era that we know as reality television and I know that MTV real world have been going on for ten plus years before that and all that but in terms of the reality show as we know it now the reality competition really because look at MTV's real world was reality television but there wasn't so much a competition to it as there was simply Hey let's follow around these young people living together in New York City for example and see what the what Guinness in suits but survivor brought into existence the reality show plus competition element to it and survivor was the first one and there have been spin offs and knock offs and somewhat success some not with success and then of course you're American idol and that led to that off shoot of the you know the reality competition world but Rudy Bosch let me think about that summer of two thousand are you putting reality in quotation marks all because you don't know I just you know what I worked in reality TV I was actually on one of the first dating show not on it but I what I work out for you I work for us dating shows that ever came on blind date and no that's not a right now see that's not reality hit but that but the same thing at the same thing happens with the other shows there scripted technically they're loosely scripted blind date was loosely scripted we can determine which way well when do you want to go that route then love connection with Chuck Woolery was kind of a reality dating show would you not camber I mean they don't have the camera on the date with the guys so do you have Roger lodges number I DO scam on line seven and I actually have Roger lodge doing now he actually hosts the Los Angeles angels of Anaheim pregame and postgame show out in California and five five thirty AM on radio and radio yellow he's got a TV yeah you that while he does guest spots but he he fills in for Jim Rome on I'm radio quite a bit on the nationally syndicated Jim Rome show and he also does the angels pre and post game shop Roger latch sports not and he's he's very knowledgeable what better at that but he was on the well so what was what did you do on blind date what was your role perfectionist system but I worked in the tape library getting you know dumping all the all the dates from the night before and getting cuts and everything for editors and writers and exactly I we we were that they were the first show that actually live that actually stream to finish shows over to exacts over universal cell was that you see you live in California I did I lived right Nollywood raid five blocks from some of the most famous person you ran into when you were in California my Hollywood Michael Jackson you ran into him actually he was recording at his sister Janet studio which was right next door to where I live where I worked when I see ran into him right in what respect did you run into him he came out back we were standing on our part of our parking ramp looked over into that parking lot it was gated now is a gated parking lot and we sat and we had a conversation with them I mean we didn't we weren't able to go up to him but we kinda had like a little hundred yard conversation from it would said a one hundred yard okay maybe hundreds a hundred foot admissible but the most famous person that I ever met and actually had a one on one conversation with John Stamos inter with him in Roger lodge they were great lodge chimed stables and bury Nelson walk into a bar the three of you guys we had dinner one night yeah because they they grew up together and Roger and I were pretty tight with the B. in them the sports guys that we were in use just like Hey let's go out to dinner and he invited her well we're learning a very notes in here on the Saturday yet I'm producing this got wars and just what is that supposed to mean nothing absolutely nothing for the microphone over there give them some credit is that right the question I want to lead off your wit is as follows do you learn more in defeat then you do in victory and more so than that do you'll learn more when you get your rear end kicked when you get your brain bash Dan on a field of competition but even beyond sports in the real world in the academic world in the corporate world do you and can you learn more in those instances then you do when you are the Victor and you don't just squeaked out a victory but yeah absolutely plow over the competition because something happened this week in New Jersey that is absolutely astounding when it comes to winning losing end of penalty for the former holiday season is.
