"To be able to run block but let me throw this out to you. It's third and five. Derek Carr is under center. You know he's GonNa Pass. He's got Josh. Jacobs who can catch the ball out of the backfield got Jason Witten? He's got Darren Waller. He's got Henry Rugs in motion. He's got hunter rent role in the slot and he's got Nelson Galore tyrel Williams running a crossing route if Derek doesn't get instantly and he has two seconds to look at his options. Someone is going to be wide open I'm not talking open. I'm talking wide open and all Derek Scott to do is get the ball out. Okay. Get it out and pick up a first down war hold onto the ball sprint rights sprint left planet speed and throw. It's sixty yards on a rope for touchdown. That's what I'm expecting from Derek. This year more magical plays more big plays. A rich Gannon didn't have a bigger than Derek Carr Gannon did when he was a multiple pro bowler in an MVP is made great decisions in critical times in Games with the raiders needed a big play Derek Carr will do that this year. will have more receiving yards this season Henry roads are Darren Waller. Question there. That's a good question because if you look at Waller's receiving last year, which were really good I have no problem with that I was disappointed that waller didn't get in the end zone more and that wasn't on him. That was he was being double team, right? So they got in the red zone and he couldn't get in I think. Rug is going to be a little bit of a work in progress early because I don't know how confident they are going to be to get him the ball over waller on third down a Renfro on third down. So runs is going to be a big hit guy big play wide receiver, but I'll take I'll take rugs with more yards I'll take. Waller with more touchdowns this year I think forcing the ball into Wahler this year because he won't have as many double teams he's going to the pro ball. He is a stud and I just can't wait to see him take his game to the next level our last one from me jt I know you've gotta get going. You're a busy guy. And I sure appreciate the time that you've given us here today on this nation the last one for me if you don't mind predict the raiders record, do they make the playoffs and twenty twenty? Yeah. That's that's a great question when I don't predict much but I think this is a playoff team on paper they look to be a nine and seventeen. The schedule is tough it is tough but the good news is the writers get their toughest games at home against drew brees and Tom Brady, and you look Philip rivers and the colts and all the Games on this home schedule, which is difficult and they're going to be make or break dance. So I think the raiders nine and seven is a fair prediction. If they beat a team like Tom Brady or drew brees early, I think they have to get off to a great start Heidi. They gotTA BE CAROLINA I think if they beat Carolina, opened the season on the road the jets are in a rebuild. They could beat Cleveland I. Think they beat Buffalo they're better than buffalo at home with or without fans. So I got the raiders a little bit better than five hundred or nine wins but an early win against drew brees or Tom. Brady on prime time I think gets the writers to attend win season. They gotta be a playoff team I. mean there's no more waiting around. Whatever happens to the raiders is going to happen. It's not going to be because of what j t the brick says with their with their record but I can tell you that Jon Gruden and the expectations of Mike Mayock or this is a playoff team every year going forward and they have to be Kansas City in the division they gotta get home. Playoff. Games at Allegiance Stadium and that journey begins right now it's thank you so much again for the time let everybody know where they can.

"Confluence of events you know it ended up turning into what happened, which was all bad news at the Raiders Organization, and for, and for Robinson himself and feels like something that a lot of people particularly Al Davis at the time, just never really to get. They couldn't get over at forty eight to twenty one blowout. Jon Gruden on the other side. He'd been traded just the year prior first season with the bucks. You know. Effect. Do you think that bear robbins is absence really had on the Super Bowl game with all of the other factors that were involved with you know from Jon Gruden to the playbook change to everything else. That was happening around this one person. With. Robbins I think that's a great question and I. Think IT'S A. It's A. It's a piece of the puzzle, maybe a large piece. I don't know if it's the largest piece. Though because while the raiders were favored going into that game, changing the game plan late doesn't help the fact that in. We spoke to some Tampa Bay buccaneers players who said that they knew every fourth signal call. They could tell which play was coming right that also it's crazy. Yeah, that absolutely blows. My mind changed some language, or you know mess things up. With the fact that Jon Gruden was on the other side Line Jon Gruden was a guy that. that a former raiders, often blaming collins even said I'd stop a bullet for that guy that that they loved him Jon Gruden on the other side after that crazy trade in two thousand to two first rounders, second rounders and eight million bucks, the impossible dream of a train that Al Davis according to Amy Trask from the when it when I interviewed her about two years back, said he just kinda threw out a number. Thinking that would never possibly get taken, and then it happened. So I think it's all those things is why it hurt. AL, Davis so bad somebody WHO's not used to losing. I'm sure he was still bothered by losing super bowl to you, don't. Really. Getting beat by someone that he traded with his center wasn't available with a coach that was struggling to attach himself to the players, and the fact that the super bowls played in front of I'd nine figures worth of people right? And the raiders got their butts kicked from the outset in a game. That wasn't even as close as the final score. You know predicted so the add all those things that we're talking about all those things that you mentioned the the the that I mentioned. It's unfair to say that it's Barret Robbins fault. Did he help the situation help? No, but there were a lot of factors at play here and none of them can be more. All, right, let's take a quick break in here from our sponsor and when we come back. We're going to talk about the raiders upcoming season and what we expect to see in twenty twenty sustained wound. Right here on the takeaways edition of the Vegas Nation PODCASTS. Basically.

All right everybody. Welcome back to the takeaways edition at the Vegas Nation podcast I'm Heidi. Fang and I'm joined here with Scott Bear from NBC Sports Bay area, and we're talking all about the podcast series now airing with NBC Sports Bay area about called sports uncovered the mysterious disappearance Barret. Robbins. I have just a couple more things here. That I want to touch on with this. He says that he was suicidal. At the point of pointing the weekend and ranch teammate found him in the cab. He's crying. He said that he's contemplating just giving up on everything giving up on life. When you heard that I mean first of all. It's super like just chilling within itself, but do you feel like maybe by branch? Factually Finding Him Bay, he may have saved his life that night. Mean it's that's a great question possibly. He was already so. Calvin branch saw Barret Robbins at a bar in the first reason why he realized something was wrong is buried. He saw in a bar for the second straight day. Bear, it was in the same clothes right so that was like a red flag, and then he went out to go hail a taxicab Barret. Robbins was already in it I. Don't know where he was going at that point, but to get back to the team hotel. He tries to sneak him up into the team hotel only to get him in his room. Let him compose himself. Get Him to a meeting, and hopefully things can iron out. For him, and then the linebackers coach comes on the like the elevator and doctors come get. Involved in this thing. It was a period where he was on suicide. Watch and there's a crazy. In A. Statement or story or anecdote? I guess included from a from Bruce Allen former raiders. Who said that when he talked to bear it, there didn't know whether the game had been played or not. I thought that he that it hadn't been. He asked if they had one and that if he was going to get on a plane to go to the pro bowl, right like that is the type of state of mind that he was. And you know bear does talk at times when when he gets these manic episodes, he just kind of like walks around and can't really. Focus on anything. That's how he got in trouble in his pass so. Possibly I would say that that. Maybe that was something to get in back around his teammates and get him background doctors who could give him some type of you know proper help could have definitely helped him. That's again one of these. You know like one of these mysteries that even seventeen years later, maybe an seventeen more years later. Maybe we're not gonNA have all of the exact answers you know from a story that again is is both intriguing and tragic, and you know again hopefully. Is a sign that if you look back seventeen years at the NFL's focus on mental health, then and compare it to me where it is now, and hopefully it will be in the future released, so we can see. You know strides being taken. They've definitely done a lot. I think in the past couple of decades since the Super Bowl happened to really research everything from CD, to depression to young even substance abuse with the players, so yeah from what we saw back two thousand and two, two, thousand three, when all this happened it. Definitely I think come leaps and bounds, speaking of things coming leaps and bounds I wanted to get your. Take a just because you. You cover the raiders for so many years. How much they have improved through the draft through the off season. The linebacker core particularly I'm interested in your take on because you see guy. Cory Littleton at you have to kind of be thinking that Jon Gruden is just chomping at the bit to see this guy on the field What do you make of just what you see at a this year's roster so far? I I. Don't want to Gush. But I really really liked what they've done. And I think because Kansas City, and a certain quarterback who signed a half billion dollar contracts. And is going nowhere. That part of the equation is not just have the raiders improved. It's a Are they a better match up against the chiefs right will. They got a lot faster with rugs and. Lynn boded and they got a lot faster on defense with Cory Littleton and When I look at their defensive especially in that linebacker core I think hey, raiders welcome to the modern era. You know that's no longer a two hundred and fifty five pound dude with a neck, raw plan Mike Linebacker, only going forward that..

"Jacksonville. You see to forty nine where there were no fans. Can you imagine what the process one would be like for the NFL teams to have to go through? The amount of testing that you see is now to make sure that people who are participating in particular are free and clear the corona virus before actually going into active competition. That's one and then the other thing being would it be like if there were no fans in place I mean. I think I saw a Korean baseball team. Putting out our board inches of is something that you could imagine that we would see our our hearing fake noise if you will to put in the background so that it feels like there's something there what would you envision this to be like at there whereas stadium without a crowded. I would the NFL The broadcast would have super impose sanctions in crowd noise. And it'd be it'd be a new job that's created in the sports world of having somebody who can hit the right buttons for the amount of crowd. Noise like crowd goes certain time crowd applauds. And it's Kinda gets happy at a certain time. Crowd is miserable or have something bad happened like all those things are going to be the computerized and somebody's going to have to hit the right tone with that would be unbelievable to kind of watch the logistics of that but inside the building. It wouldn't look any different. I look like just an empty stadium. Which would be very weird. Like watching scrimmage game of some sort and I think there are others. I think that it would take something away from the the emotions of the game. A little bit. It would be a little bit clearer. Communication Y for the player but see some some crisper times but I think the crowd not being there s thinking away but our broadcast will be very interesting. I think it would look. It would look like it's a full stadium. I take amazing things with the broadcast of very very weird to see state fans and big crowd noise and you mentioned the cardboard fans. You're seeing at the Korean baseball games. European soccer that a little bit to where they're going to have fans and you could actually pay to put like a face somebody on one of the fans during the Games which is very very weird concept as well. They're going to try to work out but again. These things are all being discussed and talked about planned every day. Even if nobody wants to talk about that on the record that is happening but it's nothing has been decided yet like the ultimate goal is obviously to have full. But I think a lot of people think that's not really realistic right now and you saw David Temper. Yesterday from the Panthers Essentially winning because this is very weird the NFL user. Shut down the execs. They basically said we're not having not having full stadiums that's out and so that'd be took a lot of people back a but it's realistic. I mean who who right now thinks that. There's going to be full stadiums games beside very very optimistic fans. I don't think anybody can really envision that right now so it was exciting to hear him say that but at the same time like yeah of course that makes a lot of it just to speculate even further and I WANNA get your her vision of what it would be like what it would take for the NFL. Stay Bring Back Games during the regular season to keep your schedule on tax cow much testing. Could you imagine I fell would probably put forward with this? Let's say as far as eating at Beijing. Adam fee like one person per every four seats or something of that nature if we have to forward with corona plans and when you switch what would you think it would be you know? It's a hard question to answer. I mean to you go to the people who paid the most won and a lot of people probably paid the same. And who doesn't I think know people in an I burner situations where only half this. I'd love to know how they're going to decide artery system. You're you're obviously reimbursing for games. They can't notice. There's a lot do that in terms of only letting a certain amount of this is very difficult because as you said football worst Ford for this so close there's blood sweat These guys are not to be tested numerous numerous times. I would think that could send planet seen a lot of people. Don't think I'd love this batting than the public perception not a lot of people angry if the NFL players several get tested on people. Who Don't you know what about sports? Don't get tested or not. I think it's valid thanks White things one brisk. I would really like how they're going to choose only spurs. Are they book? The richest people were the most money spent some tickets. I don't know how you do that. And you'RE GONNA have a lot of people mad at that if they're not on the ones that are in and they also spent a ton of money on the way that would work is you know. Let's just say that it's twenty thousand fans are GonNa be allowed at Games You know you. As a season ticket holder you're going to be assigned A certain number of games so for one game be twenty twenty five thousand of the of the season ticket holders than the next game. It'll be the other twenty five thousand of your season ticket holder and so on and so forth so I think you know again. It's on ideal but everyone. That's a season ticket holder will have access to at least a couple of games if not more based on how many season ticket holders you actually have. You could do that. But I'll tell you what you're pissed off people. We don't get into see Tom. Brady era people were. Hey you get buffalo but these twenty five thousand gave Brady. Are you get this needs? Twenty five thousand get breeds. You're GONNA have Understand that and while I totally understand I mean. What can you really do what? What's I mean they're gonNA cast off? You know people will get uniforms changes and things like that so I don't know what the other alternative. If that's the only safe way to do it then you know. People are just be understanding. We're all dealing with. We were all locked in our houses for twenty two hours out of the day. You know it's it's it's just something that he had to deal with. But I agree with you if I was a season ticket holder. Don't get to go see Tom. Brady Pretty pissed off. There's no question about it especially as much money as people paid for. Psl's which gives you the right to buy tickets to these games. All this money at the Games that I want to get. That's insane. They're gonNA have a lot of a lot of stuff to try to figure out but again it's beyond their control but People are people are not going to be happy with any of this. Yeah and there's no way way reason we can even determine anything right now or how this will all play out because we all said speculation but we have to kind of try to start envisioning with the worst case scenarios could be are. They're going to be pissed off. People are they're going to be fans like people who bought these like you said Adam. The can't get end up games after they make this kind of decision. These are all things we have to contemplate in these uncertain times. But as we sit here right now on this Thursday that's probably about as far as we can go before we wrap things up any. I just wanted to ask you. Do you have any word right now on the NFL. Meet implant for Southern California. Is that going to remain virtual? They still going to have that meeting or will it be open at all to any of the media as they normally are wet. What's the plan right now with the latest? Nfl meeting coming virtual. It's next week. It was scheduled to be with Marina del Rey California next week. So yeah obviously there. They can't so So now we're going to be done virtually From what I'm told because you know end at certain about this before there was a little bit expectation That that might be the target date for when we figured out whether Las Vegas was giving it a super bowl here the next couple of years From what I've been told as walls are not on the on the Jennifer next week so we'll have to wait Find out when las get sewer while we were told what was it that before the end of the year right by by the referee added. Mischer said this calendar year. That's why we kind of circled may cause as normally when they do those type of things now. The question is will. They even announced that this year is that even on their radar right now so So unfortunately you know. That's that's kind of followed by the wayside As far as media access From what I'm told they're going to wait to see what comes out of out of the The meetings any big rule changes or announcements that.

"No large events till January Doctor Foul t seen if you bring back teams get them no tell keep them away from each other which. I don't know how that even happens. I don't know What this way goes I mean in your in Napa would be interesting. There'd be no in those stands out even know what they're gonNA do with media. No vinnie had a source knee. Nfl this morning Say maybe a pool reporter game no media so I guess we should all better have the ticket right that off on taxes. Because we're going to be on our couch watching these Games I just think it's going to be fast. I I could do it either way. I seem to think unlike some local politicians in our town that is very dangerous show. I don't think anyone's opening very soon we saw today. That New Jersey has more killed by this than World War. What and this is a very serious thing and I think when they do open up it'll be very very careful about this and other inside or outside as I think they should be because the worst thing in the world is they're going to bring these teams or sports back or other entities and they're going to be too soon. We're going to do this again. And I think they should be worried about that so I think if they go to training camps they better be really really careful about. Who's around and how they bring these guys back. I mean you're saying you know. Put The raiders and a Marriott a great place obviously NAPA. 'cause the Marriott's right there you could sequester. They're still around each other meetings. And you can do the best you can but this is a very difficult thing to handle so I I'm more fascinating than anything about how they're going to bring people back whether it be sports or or just real life and you know begging piggybacking on a Of the media aspect of covering games. Maybe there will be a pool reporter. Maybe the broadcasters with with broadcast from a studio someplace rather than actually be at the game are one of the one of the points that were brought up was who takes liability. Do allow them. Yes there is it the team is the League is at the outlet in case something bad were to happen or if somebody were to catch Kobe nineteen and you know we can all of picture. The possibilities of what could happen if that happened to anybody in the ramifications of that so you'll lose a lot of layers to that they have to get sorted out before any of this becomes normal you and for many a if the if the if the price that we would have to pay right now is to cover games from our home in order to be able to squash this at once for all adverts virus as long as it doesn't become the norm as as long as it doesn't start changing how things get done moving forward like the accessibility and being at games and covering games having that connection Then I think it is a small price to pay. I would just hate for some teams or some leagues. Start Looking at this as a as a as a as a new kind of model to be used down the road and I think that would actually work against the number one and number. Two people are going to be surprised. At how when it does get back to normal and we are interacting with. I think guys are going to start appreciating that part of it a little bit more if they have to go a season without it. I wouldn't WanNa be a patriots beat writer because if Bella check gets a hold of this they'll never be immediate is games again on the other hand. I'm sure you're I jerry. Down and Jerry World would appreciate and enjoy. Bring all the media. It's night and day with those two. He would he would walk in and I had a TV friend of who you know. Every year he goes every for years he goes and covers the Olympics. And you know the. The curtain was pulled back for me On this the first time that I knew that I forget exactly where was. Let's just say it was somewhere in Germany and I was like oh joy Germany because I I do the whole thing from Connecticut you know. He's my broadcasting events but in a studio in Connecticut. He's lives in a motel or hotel for about a month and and broadcast from from a nearby studio. But it makes it look like he's there live so you know They'll be able to figure it out if we have to get to that point all right. Well let's go ahead wrap things up here on the show and we'll come back tomorrow and get back into our mock drafting with our second. Round of that for you on the Raiders.

Welcome back to Vegas nation everybody. I'm your host. Heidi Fang with our raiders writers Adam Hill and Vinnie Bonsignore and Review Journal sports columnist. Ed Grainy here we're going to start walking you through who we fit. Fake were the three best draft picks in Raider history. So of all time I mean there are a ton of picks that the raiders have had here that have delivered for this team. If you just kinda run through some names off the top like gene upshaw Marcus Allen. D'amato are Shell. There's a ton of guys here that have contributed to this team. That you could look at and say are the three best of all time but for me. I'll just get this thing started Nelson to Brown and I think it's a physician that the raiders would be looking to upgrade this year wide receiver nineteen eighty eight draft. Pick for the team. He was the all time leader in Games. Played for the raiders. He said a ton of franchise records with receptions receiving yards punt return yards users. Somebody I think that when I look back on the eighties and the raiders. I thought Tim Brown everything that he did with this team from eighty eight on was pretty amazing a nine time pro bowler and I just can remember kids in my grade just always walking around with his Jersey. I grew up in the bay area so I think he was. Just somebody that a Lotta people looked up to and eventually other players tried to emulate Adam. Who Do you have? What are we doing? Third-best or I pastor. We do an order here was I think it's just you know. Three best. Draft picks in raiders. History that you could think of At calling the three busters. Because I got the idea after seeing all these things like you can only keep three quarantine and so we'll just go. I guess it'll be four because it has all of our pigs here fair enough man like I always WanNa pick Charles Woodson. Because he's you know one of my favorite players ever being in Michigan fan growing up and obviously had a great career but he's a pretty high paying. I think you have to look further down the draft a little bit I'm GonNa go picking Ken Stabler in the Second Round Looking back a pretty good selection. He went on of course to win a league. Mvp The NFL passing touchdowns two times He was obviously one of the great names. Great faces a in franchise history news a second round pick which the same goes for how long to which is right up there so. I'm sure he might be on the minds of somebody else but I I think Ken Stabler in the second round is pretty good. Pick any taken while. You're one of the things real quick when I when I look at the raiders draft history. It's pretty spectacular The Pixel came up with that. It kinda shows that they were a little bit ahead of the curve on the whole scouting game and You Know Al Davis did surround himself with with tremendous football minds. It wasn't just him. He had a lot of help along the way. But for me you know especially when I was younger and and watching Kenny. Stabler who was a tremendous number two picks I can pick Or round pick but I used to always marvel. At how much time can you save will throw the ball? He would just sit back. They're kind of dancing around a little bed. You know. Sort of tiptoeing fee. Tipton his feet tiptoeing asleep and then boom you know. Destroy a secondary with the pinpoint. Pass the cliff branch or or something like that bullet the cough but as always wondering how the heck did this guy get so much time. Well there was a great offensive line in front of and I think the leader of that offensive line was not shot Who was a hall of Famer Multiple Pro Bowlers To Super Walls And so I always felt like he was the key to that offense of line. There are some other great players are at. Shell was there as well. But but gene show was upshot was the was the leader of one of the best offensive lines of all time. So for me on that would be the greatest fiction writer history and Ed who is greatest. Pick here of his driving through addresses or better ones but I'm GonNa go with the guy. Adam said for this reason because I actually think Charles Woodson played above the number four overall pick which is usually a pretty difficult thing to do your number four overall but Two guys picked out of them. Were Ryan Leaf and Andre Wadsworth. So big mistakes there obviously I know there is need back then with lief. We know what happened to him? But the thing that's impressive to me about Charles Woodson was. He started one hundred fifty one hundred fifty four games but was when he came back he still started off. Forty eight games. He played one of few super bowls. Nine time all pro. If there is such a thing as you can play better than your draft pick at number four I think Charles Woodson did it He's defensive player of the year so even as good as I think they thought he'd be. I think he was even better so I think that guy was unbelievable. Us heisman guy. Defensive Guy from Michigan I thought he was just awesome so I know his pick fourth overall but I think even played above that Charles Woodson's and interesting when because this past season I think you and I added an atom as well we were all up in Green Bay and Charles. Woodson's out there on the field during the Raider Green Bay game and it's so crazy. How many Raider fans actually made it out there as well to be able to. Kinda cheer them on E. was I think they're as part of a Green Bay celebration. But I definitely always with the raiders. In their hearts seasons he played in with the packers sandwiched in between his time with the raiders so very very When you look at that position and cornerback there is very few who played the positions like Woodson. I love that picks so I think that actually just kind of does make three in some sense because I think Adam you were thinking about Woodson as well in your top picks but you went for deeper in the draft so yeah this has been kind of interesting to revisit. Some of the best draft picks. And what we're GONNA do tomorrow as well is get back into this. Mock draft will give you a two point. Oh version of the mock draft once we kind of look over a picks that could come into the raiders hands in the twenty twenty nfl draft and we will again be doing live shows with that. So you WANNA keep it tuned here to Vegas nation and also check out right now. Cassie Soto. Who IS OUR VEGAS? Nation hosts has done a short video with hunter Renfro and Isaiah Johnson.

"In each of the first to mock draft but they have invested in free agency so it's not it's not exactly the the highest priority anymore. I don't think but here's what happens when you let the draft layout I mean there's many different ways that it can play out but the way that my mock draft is going right now you get to a spot at nineteen where the top two corners off the board the Third Corner Which there's a little bit of a debate about who that would be Christian Fulton was there. He's kind of slipping the process a little bit but I still think he's a pretty high end elite player and then Trevan dig from Alabama. I just I really like him. And I think he's in the mix and I was very close to make him the pick because They do need a corner and I do believe that he's very talented. I just don't know if that's the right value at nineteen when those guys are going lower. So if I'm if I'm at. Nineteen on the Raiders. I'm looking to trade down To try to get maybe pick up a second round. Pick something like that or whatever you could get a moved out. A little bit exact. Still think you could get one of those corners there but if you're at nineteen. I still have them going linebacker. Just because I think that's the best value at that spot like I said. I had them taking mckinney. But now that you've got A safety in the mix of America's Randall. I don't know the Egos safety there So while I think mckinney would be the best player on the board here. And that's that's what I would like to go I just don't think that that's the need anymore so I have taken Patrick Queen linebacker from Lsu Just because like I said I don't think the value is there to take a corner so my suggests will be the trade down and get a corner but if you're at Nineteen. I go patrick leave militia. Because he's a guy who I think could be a a captain type later defense For the next decade and just locked position down and certainly been a spot where the raiders have had have had some trouble finding that type of guy but again they've spent somebody free agency so this becomes a pretty tough decision interesting. I like that. I like that Patrick Queen. Lsu Vinnie who you're with at the nineteen out of brings up some some compelling You know I- ideas and thoughts but on the stick with Mckennie in I'll tell you why You'll between him and Darius Randolph. Both both these guys are really really reversal. You could lineup Xavier over your defense. A secondary and He's going to get the job done Same with with Randall. You can you know. I wouldn't be the worst thing. If he started the season quarterback he played three years or back with the Green Bay packers. did really well at that position when I look at the AFC west. And I see guys like Travis Kelsey and under Henry just destroying teams especially Travis Kelsey and what the Kansas City chiefs a do with all their weapons. Want as many young players that can that can match up against a lot of those guys into me. Mckinney is a guy that can take tight ends not necessarily out of the game. But he's going to be able to deal with them And I just think that he brings so much to the table with his versatility and his ability for you to use it as a chess piece. defensively that that the value is too great there at nineteen. I do like we're Adams thinking about potentially trading back because I think you can still get a savior in a trade back scenario and maybe pick up like you said a second round pick where maybe that's where you go back to cornerback but if you have to Stanton nineteen I'm sticking with Mckinney I just think he's fabulous player. It's perfectly okay miles. Who Do you have? Further raiders with the Number Nineteen. Pick and the twenty twenty. Nfl draft. Yeah I like the picks from Adam and Vinnie but I would go with Kenneth Murray Which I guess you know. I'm just sticking with Oklahoma guys. I don't even like Oklahoma football that much but I just think that We look at what Murray did. You know as a staunch middle linebacker. And then you hear story and you hear about the kind of person he is. I think he's the kind of person you want to build. You'd want to build around on defense and you know this is nothing against Hausky who has called signals before you know. He is shown that he can do that in a spot starter role. I just think if you're GONNA try to really transform your defense you want somebody who is your Alpha Dog your number one linebacker and that's something that I really think Murray can bring to the table. Look he's he's been in that position. Basically his entire football life he knows how to call signals. He's not going to be intimidated by coming in and telling veterans what to do and I think that that is something that the raiders could definitely use on defense a try to improve themselves. You get somebody you can get everybody lined up who understands scheme and understand -nology and all those different things. Scott the high football Iq does nothing but basically watch film and football during the season. This is somebody that I really think you can build your defense around. And that's why I would. I would pick him number nineteen overall. But I'M GONNA be very boring because that's who I had as well at nineteen was Kenneth Murray. I mean my paper all right on I put my picks on a separate papers but seriously I just think that yeah. I saw that the raiders. Were already kind of looking at him. As somebody that could fit pieces of the puzzle for them on defense and I think just like you said him being a good signal caller and somebody they. The raiders can grow round. It's something that they're going to need at linebacker but I am actually still on the fence with this one. Just because there's like so many different cornerbacks as well when you look at how things just felt through with Eli Apple. It's something that I think. The raiders will definitely be considering so maybe that'll be part of my two point. Oh draft when we come back with us because we're GONNA do this each week as we get to the draft. We'LL TRY TO KEEP IT on Friday. So that you guys know when to look forward to mock drafts here on the podcast but yeah. I mean this is going to be really interesting. Draft for the raiders with the five picks that they have in the top hundred as well so Adam I hope we can get you on every time to be able to talk about this since you are doing that On the paper as well and online at VEGAS NATION DOT com. So glad to have you today to bring up That and I have to say I was expecting miles to throw some. Haider something on you at one point but that didn't happen today Justin texts. That's all that silly time. That happened. Say I absolutely want to talk more? Because the Vikings could be presented with one of the most fascinating decisions. I've ever seen the draft in the industry is what we call a tease ladies and big time big time teas but let me tease them. More stuff that we have here on Vegas Nation. Vinny you wrote about Isaiah Johnson. That's up on the site. You can check that out.

"Podcasts you immediately probably turn around trade You Know Derek Carr right so if you went and traded up or if you took somebody at twelve. You'RE NOT GONNA keep all three of those quarterbacks with Marcus Mariota Derek Card. Jaffna's what do you think you could get for a Derek Carr? I from what I understood. There was somewhat of a market for him out there and we could go right to the Patriots in. Thank you know that that might be a good fit for him out there. Some other teams still that that could use him. So if you get another third round pick or a second route at for him all of a sudden you've put yourself in a better position in it as Ed Santa's at the wide receiver class to get wide receiver. Maybe in the second round. So there's a lot of babble knows that could fall under the scenario that just talked about trading up to get a quarterback or or sitting tied at twelve in getting him in instill being able to use the other resource of Derek Carr as a trade asset to be able to bring back something. That's GonNa put you in a good line to come away from this draft with equality wide receiver. Yeah I mean it's it's interesting obviously draft the guy in the first round like we've said they have to move on from. I could see anywhere from. Let's say Jacksonville at nine. And you think they're gonNA grab one. Include them in the trade. You have no leverage at that point if they know. You're taking a quarterback. There's no leverage left with car. Because you know you're going to move him. I think he's better overall the nick foles. I Know Nick. Foles had the great one run But he was what a fourth or fifth rounder. So maybe he's a net realm. You have no leverage if you take a quarterback personifying another team on like log in fourth or fifth. But I'm not giving you something because we know you're moving anyway. Maybe a month remarkable. Yeah and well and and that's what we that's what we have done. If you believe the side that they've been trying to move him for two years is not much of a market for him. If you don't believe that side maybe there is. I mean you know. Do you package them and say go back up guard mentioned in Jackson. I don't think they'll really care what he does ultimately if they move him he's GonNa you know that's going to be him and what he does with another team but you know I? I don't know I mean I. I you know made the point today and it is true as much as Jon. Gruden love. Quarterbacks we know and yet Brad Johnson then he went out and beat Gannon and the Super Bowl. He's never really had his pick as young guy to mold into his likeness and what he wants. He's always Kinda veteran guys so if he's in love with love or he's in love with someone else. I'm not going to be surprised if he takes them. There's not a lot of opportunity do that. And if you know. I just believe he's a guy who would love to have his guy and you could like I said you could start Mariota at seven and a half with with incentives and You probably be fine So I I'm really interested with draft. I Really WanNa see what he does. But if he goes quarterback. I guess I'd be less and less surprised as the weeks. Go on and you hear people talking like that all right so overall when we look at the linebackers again I know I think I got grades from everybody but I mean what do you think when you just quick takes here when you look at what they could do next year and the core that could exist here. How much do you think that the raiders can actually be with the help of the defense become a winning team because I think there were some games there that were just a few big runs got let loose or they just weren't able to stop up a big play or maybe somebody bit on play action and you know sold out on the row before the play unfolded? I mean just when you look overall at what? The readers potential is How much do you think just as with the improvements that they've made on linebacker? This team moves into the realm of becoming a winning one miles while Heidi. Kinda sound like Jeff Fisher right there. You know like a pet if my grandma bing my grandfather always says if you gotta start a sentence with if if doesn't mean anything right but I I I think. Look at the at the end of the day. The raiders are still in a position where yes they look like. They should be better this year but I think that they still have a lot of questions to answer on the defensive side of the ball and I think it despite the fact that they certainly have a lot of talent on the offensive side. They have to put the ball in the box. More that that was one of the things that might may I talked about at the combine. Was that often have numbers? Were really not that. Bad for the raiders. But then when you think about the points they weren't in that top echelon of teams in terms of scoring points. So how do you get the ball into the box? You gotta be able to capitalize on your red zone opportunities. Maybe you gotta get a couple more takeaways and things like that field position matters. Jon gruden harped on that a lot of the time so there are a lot of things that I think. The raiders still have to do in order to really be successful. Okay Vinnie. What's your take a quick. Take on the raiders and the linebacker position. Just what the improvements that they've made and how can help to improve the team in twenty twenty? I think that they've they've They've improved significantly. Say That and you're looking at if they can improve by two wins now. You're really in the playoff hunt. You flip it from seven to nine to nine and seven may think that there's the capability to do. That always does amaze me but not surprises me that it always goes back to the quarterback. Right Ashley we can never get through a podcast without falling back on the quarterback in talking about that in you know what when I say that it probably is a pretty good sign that they probably don't have their guy yet. I mean you guys can disagree agree. I don't know but whenever you're talking about quarterback as much as we are when there's a six year starter that's in place makes you wonder you know how comfortable any of us let alone. The raiders are with that quarterback moving forward and what his ceiling still as bad as far as the question. I do think that it's there within the reach for them to go get two more wins and and make this a nine and seventeen and really put yourself in the running for for the play offs I don't know what the answer is on as miles mentioned. Put the ball in the in the end zone more I also. They messed a lot of good things. Penalties also plan issue. You gotTA play smart. When you're in the red zone at don't keep put yourself back Or negating big plays or or significant. Plays put yourself off schedule so stay away from the penalties. I know Raider fans are sick. Matt it's ongoing issue year after year after year. They're always committing a lot of penalties. Those are when they really Ilia when you're down In in scoring position so but I do think when you look at the defense what. They've done They still have a whole bunch of draft picks Remaining took to really make a much better team but I do think that they right now. You can make a case that they could win two more games just with what they have right now again. This is just now coming across here on twitter so I wanNA really quickly just get to this because we do need to wrap up things here on the show but the NFL General Counsel Jeff. Posh says that the League plans to go forward with his international game series and twenty twenty if circumstances permit and of course that would be a games taking place in London Games taking place in Mexico. City. I'm reading this off Albert Brew Beers twitter account so I mean just generally. What are your thoughts on that? Given the current climate everything happening with Cova Nineteen Wall. Take Myles said. It's a big if but I don't know if I'd cancel it now because you don't know when it's GonNa win all these Globally everyone's going to be back to a normal. Although I don't think normal snap for times I wouldn't cancel anything now. I don't think they need to. It's barely April first. So you know. I think you know there's no question. They have contingency plans in the background for everything. I think that the say which one about the league. They've got attorneys and people behind the scenes who say what if what if. What if have contingency plans? But I don't I don't I'm not surprised at all. He said that I mean why. Why say you're not GonNa do it now?

"heidi fang" Discussed on Vegas Nation - Raiders Football

"You know going someplace else and creating or adding T to the legacy. We don't know you know it's it's it's a hard to get a read on that but I'm with miles. It would be really really weird. Really really odd and to me surprising if he's in a different uniform than than the New England patriots last year. But I've learned to this you can never say never and just expect the unexpected right and I think if he does he can't wear twelve anymore. I think it's just too hard to his numbers. This brand wolf. What's going to turn to six. No I don't think so. Montana went from sixteen in one thousand. Nine hundred Mil. Maybe maybe the question I have is a okay. Let's say he does get on the open market. Is Somebody going to blow him away with an offer or is he going to get humbled when he when he walks out onto that Market and the calls aren't coming are the numbers that he thinks that he's worth aren't being talked about. That's interesting too because you have to. He is forty two years old. And unless you're just in the business of selling tickets what does he? What does he bring? Maybe maybe he does bring a shot at a championship for a titans team. That's on the cost right there But is he going to do more much more than Ryan? Tannehill Bryan Tunnel. GotTa statistically better season Oh yeah. There's an argument to be made that for the weeks. He was starting Ryan. Tannehill was the best quarterback in the league. Now it was interesting though happened in the postseason worthy. I think he had two games where he threw for under one hundred yards running back just destroying opponents. Right you know why bother. It's the it's the same thing with Jimmy Garoppolo now. Patrick mahomes still exists. So I don't want to you know I don't want to say too much. Brian will be in the best quarterback but I think statistically if you look at his numbers he had the best passer in league right. There were a lot of things that he did extremely well and he plays extremely well off of Derrick Henry. So if you're going to try to build a championship team. I think that there are still argument to be made that Ryan. Tannehill is a great quarterback in order to try to flip side of that. Argument is if you put Tom Brady into that system. Can he take it? Even Higher Than Ryan Tannehill dead and I mean it. Is Tom Brady but at the same time? He's forty two years made forty so we've seen some deterioration in his in his arm strength and and it has game we go back to the super bowl against the rams. I mean you know. He had a big drive but was relying on on his components around him He certainly didn't look great and they made about three good throws in that game. And you know if the rams offense had been able to do much of anything The the first one of the first passes he threw the first passed heat by a little bit of smack about him or or pointed out some flaws in his game. Right in a story that Brooke just before the Super Bowl. So yeah but you could also make a case like you know. Maybe maybe that's a You know Peyton manning situation going to go into the broncos. Do you go and just do it. Yeah at last ended the this guy's career in order to try to win a super bowl. I mean that's what Peyton manning did and brought to the Broncos and I don't think anyone's ever going to argue that from the broncos perspective they've got Nice Rings and then is championship banner to show for that that being said I would still like to see him work with. Aj Brown that young rookie. Receiver from Ole miss out there in Tennessee. I think that kid is something special about Jerry. Judy or cd-rom raiders uniform. Absolutely that was a very dynamic receivers if you. I'm just playing devil's advocate here. But if you if you do address the wide receiver position whether it's with Robbie Anderson for the jets are J. Green from the Cincinnati bengals or one of the draft picks CD Lamb Jerry. Judy with Josh Jacobs with Darrin Waller with hunter renfro with a healthy tyrel Williams with the offensive line that turned out to be one of the better ones in the NFL. And you put Tom Brady on there. Now I'M NOT SAYING THEY'RE GONNA Stop Anybody. They're going to enjoy the defense. That's for darn sure but you put Tom Brady amongst that kind of talent. Wow I mean I would like to see that. I would like to see what they're capable of doing now. Derek Carson will want you just put all around me and I'll show you what I could do but it'll be it'll be interesting. There's if if if if you're looking at a guy that can take this writer offense to another level with a wide receiver. One and everything else that they have going for. Who better than Tom Brady? He's so on that note. There were five others that you guy said that. Gruden had mentioned that. The raiders have spoke with five other quarterbacks in the NFL combine that they've spoke with this week The you know who the five are and those are going to say Yeah He. He's not GonNa do that. Jake frahm was one of them. I know that they met with Jordan love at the at the senior bowl. I'm pretty sure that they probably met with him. as well as those guys that I would think that they talked to You know so i. I think it's the usual. It's everyone that you probably would think that they would talk to You know I'm going to speculate but I think a guy like Jacobsen from Washington who would be there With the nineteenth pick And as an starting to really turn some heads. And IT'LL BE INTERESTING TONIGHT. The quarterbacks get out there. I can't wait to see some of these guys like Jacob Easson I. I'm interested in seeing Jake Prom. 'cause I think he's a guy that he's a a winning player You know I don't think he's a first round pick by any stretch but he could be a third round pick in a development Mental Guy. So I'm really excited to see the quarterbacks and who are you looking for from was definitely one of them? I like sewage Jordan. Love can do because I just haven't really seen much of him. You know if I'm being honest I haven't seen that many of his college games But I think the interesting thing is what John was talking about with. How the they're probably going to add a quarterback in some way whether a young quarterback and that's why they're meeting with different guys you know they can draft one. Later on in the draft is grooming was talking about Glennon ease of free agent. Peterman was hurt for a lot of the year. They still do. Have TO SEAN KAISER. But at the same time you want to continue to develop something and so if say the raiders. Do acquire a Tom Brady unique to have somebody who is a developmental quarterback. Because I don't know that Tom Brady is gonNA play past the age of forty five right. You know so. And who's to say that ease even going to be at that high of a level where it's this year or next year so you have to have a plan in place to succeed him so if that were to be the case and they go out and they get a guy like a brady or whoever else on the phone quarterback market. You want to have somebody else that you can come in and develop so that I think is a lot of where the due diligence comes in and let's talk about if it is their car. What a big year. This is for car because everything that the raiders are saying indicates as we talked about The other day a yes they're happy with Derek Carr but they WANNA be happier at quarterback overall If he does return is the quarterback this year it's in his power to make to to to To create that happiness to to make them more content and I know from Derek's perspective from from his side of things you know he just wants a chance to be able to operate in an offense that has that has all the pieces in place. Give me that and you know I'll show you what I can do. And that's what he's going to have to do this year because again. Everything that the raiders are saying is and there's a reason why they're saying this is because they're not entirely happy. They're not satisfied with their quarterback position. In some somebody whether it's Derek Carr has to has to provide that that that that that happiness and it's it's going to be on him if he is the quarterback here If not then we're GONNA be talking about the same thing next year and And wouldn't even easier to get rid of mean if you look at his contract there through paying him. His guaranteed portion of that contract. The two point nine million or three million. Whatever it was that they paid him a couple of weeks ago. It was some sort of a roster bonus that that that ended at that ended the seventy million or so fully guarantees. So they're not. There's nothing in his contract. That's guaranteed from this point so they can easily get rid of them whether it's this year or next year but so it's up to him the argument it's also tradable asset too. So I mean you could think about any number of teams that might say all right. Well maybe we trade for him now and if it doesn't work out then it doesn't work out a couple of years for it to work. Yeah he's he's still under contract right. Gary but it's not guaranteed that you could either keep them or get rid of them and with no No big deal either way and hope for the upside of of him sticking around and I we've talked about this. The bears come to mind the cults. Come to mind. There's two teams that could use a capable quarterback and certainly provides that numbers wise. He's shown that he could be capable of quarterback so Tom Brady leaves the Patriots. I mean you know. All the heard that I've heard that Bill Belichick was a big fan of Derek Carr. So the dare can't play in the cold though cold in New England. Yeah all right so that'll do it here for today from the NFL combine again.

"It's interesting you know you talk about the move with the chargers and the rams and everything and I remember miles and I were at a game in Los Angeles with the chargers playing the raiders. And then you see this blimp flying overhead that has the scientists basically like Fu. You spanos arena. It didn't quite recall what it said but the words were not kind and you have to wonder like even talking about distractions like you for the players at a looking at this kind of stuff was the warming up and thinking. Wow these guys hate us. If only they would've put that kind of energy towards the vote rather than securing a blimp or whatever it was playing you know. Maybe they would have still had their team. I sorry about that but just to say it so when you look at over I mean. There's all kinds of things that can happen throughout the season obviously You know but I think right now for a lot of fans for the raiders have been in Los Angeles. This is kind of a good thing for them now. They're able to come a little bit closer to be able to see the raiders. Play in Las Vegas so I haven't heard quite as much backlash yet. I mean. Obviously there's going to be people who are in Oakland. Have still troubles dealing with the team? Come into Las Vegas. You know I don't see necessarily that there's GonNa be a hard transition that way. It's a it's Vegas as a destination city. I think a lot of people come to and there was a three year. Walk up to this show fans In in the bay area or or whoever was you know wanted them staying Oakland and are hurt but they're not had three years to absorb it in to deal with it and wrap their arms around it and and you know rectify Y You know as individuals whereas in Saint Louis was like boom. You're teams gone and see a letter. And and same thing in San Diego January twelfth twenty sixteen twenty seventeen. The chargers announced that they're moving and months later they're gone So that's a little bit different dynamic for those teams. Then is for the raiders who again had three years to say goodbye to Oakland and and And Yeah you're right. There's a lot of fans in Los Angeles and the southern California area that are going to support the raiders whether I season ticket holders. We've seen that. The numbers are pretty good in Los Angeles and Southern California For the season tickets same with Oakland moves. There's people that are remaining fans of the raiders. And they're gonNA make the trip to Las Vegas as you said. That's a great destination. Said we all know that So that certainly certainly helps. The San Diego thing was just weird because San Diego has always looked at or had a thing about Los Angeles. It's just it's not reverse like Los Angeles San Diego who doesn't WanNa go to San Diego with beaches everything it's a great city to go to whereas there's a thing with San Diego and Los Angeles so the charges probably couldn't have moved to a worst place if you're a San Diego Fan even though it's just a couple of hour drive but it's a place that people there's just this thing that goes on between San Diego and Los Angeles more from San Diego toward Los Angeles and so those fans just said nope not going to be a part of it and don't want to be a fan and and that's really hurt the charges loot seen that Whereas the raiders. I think are going to carry over a lot of Oakland fans. I would think I wouldn't WANNA be on. I fifteen on Sunday afternoons at like six o'clock. I think that's going to be a mess not to figure out our transportation by other means but we will still keep you posted here on everything happening at the NFL combine in Indianapolis the rest of this week.

"Funding going on so so I think that it was fully just based on the defense but there were some points where it was like because saks and other things but Man Dan I I just don't know right now. What else the raiders can do to make any changes to improve defensively this season? I think we're just GONNA have to watch what what happens. I mean obviously they have some good key pieces that are in place that will probably be great future players but as of right now as a whole all this team is just lacking I saw moreau miss a huge tackle for net just kind of breezed on by him To get into the red zone even deeper I think it was like he got down to about eight yard line on that one On the next play resulted in a touchdown. So I ve any when you look at the defense part of. It really really needs the overhaul when we started thinking ahead. Well actually I disagree a little bit because I thought the defense actually played for the most part a winning game today. When your offense gets free professions in the second half those score any points And keeps put you out On on the field the old You know continuously having to having to go back out there and play you're gonNA YOU'RE GONNA you're tired And they they that that showed in that fourth for a quarter but up until then that defense to me played a really good game. It's actually you know. I feel bad for their defense because special left Oakland tonight with the win under the belt and I had a good effort to show for it but unfortunately they kept getting put in buffalo positions because the offense wasn't doing anything about but that doesn't change the fact that her needs a lot of changes in debate defensively they need an influx of difference makers dives it doesn't have to be a whole bunch of them because there are some solid pieces on on the defense and when they get healthy even more so they need guys that can make a difference it again for on that last drive you need a player in that can step up a typical ball Make a tackle. come up with an interception. A sack. something they all. I need one more play on that last defensive Dan And they could've you know held onto win this game but right now. They're they're missing that. But if we're just GONNA talk about today specifically your thought on ball and played a game at cornerback. I know you've got called interference on that last year. I didn't think that it was a pass wrath interference banting that You know if the rest got look about again I think they would. They would agree with that thought. Cleveland Sparrow. All played pretty. Good Max crosby came up with another sack. I thought that Lee played good up linebacker. So there was you know a winning effort by the deacons. That's what makes it lost so much more frustrating because they finally got a decent performance from their defense and they still couldn't take advantage of and I was out there to doing some big things I mean he was getting all over the ball and keeping up in the faces of like Gardner. Minced you and trying to make some big things happen. Unfortunately couldn't get it done on but like you said like Clean Feral Max. Crosby those are the guys I think can be cornerstones of this defense as they go forward but I think largely like ah the secondary had a lot of issues and things that I think in the end when it comes down to it. They're going to have to really look at it especially without A couple of players. There's being in the positions that they normally play and the movement. That's happened here because they hadn't Worley in there That was one of the interesting things I thought like. He was supposed to move into corner and then he didn't come in and play today so I think a lot of injuries also have kind of just been issue for for them So miles we look ahead we have a couple of AFC west teams. The raiders are familiar with that they will be facing. They're going that'd be heading into the Los Angeles and play the charters and as well as the Denver Broncos so I think like these are people that are familiar earlier with the you know these are probably going to be really tight games. I think And I've looked at a couple of these like today. I thought the same thing like how this is going to be be a very competitive game very good game and I mean it was but I mean in the sense of like seeing a bit more flashes from the Raiders of promise and I I I just don't know right now like you said I think this whole loss kinda put a damper on things and Obviously with the playoff chances so when you look look ahead. Let's just look at the next week with L. A. Ahead this team an opponent that they're familiar with. I guess when when you have of these four losses what do the raiders need to do to kind of flip things around and put their best foot forward and try to snap that streak as they close out. The season got to play better defense. I think one of the biggest things that they've been able they had on whaling is good than this holiday. You sense any when do that You putting yourself in a bad position I mean and obviously you know being the Nice job in the first half only sixty nine yards to government you through the air that again and I think we all have that out of collateral damage age. All good things you're able to do on clay was in that I just can't yeah. You can't sustain it it really in a bad position and what could be better in the second half and then gave just not been well. They've not done loss intimately in the second half. Ah Weeks and weeks and weeks now and so. I think that they're the real chances team. Jindo from sixty four and looking at the ill potential attention playoff spot as wildcard team or even in the AFC west committing race for a little bit there. They finished six and ten. I mean there's a real chance of being continues to spiral and because next week even though this probably lucky readers home game down there and Carson with the amount of raiders in Los Angeles area area all that better it alive turnovers today. Apparently against the Minnesota Vikings considerably better defense. And they're going to be facing the raiders and then of course in Denver A couple of days before the New Year that game is going to be really cold and I think we all know how badly Derek Harper forms oranges cold so there is a real chance that this being gone except for the six hundred ten so they got a rank the shed Jon Gruden as being challenged commissioner is teaming go looming uphold chargers. I don't think it's I. I know I almost think that it would be better off if they did lose to two games are I mean you're why would you say that. Here's why their draft status would would have moved so much more at that record and I know that the various to win Dan. I mean you obviously played a win. We've heard that million times. I totally agree with you. Yes exactly but at the same time they could really I'm not saying go down. There just validate. I'd yeah. I'd like to see some high from the raiders I'm not so sure that they have enough to win. Games right now to go out on the road And be a pretty good chargers team with a quarterback that knows how to win Gab and then going to Denver. That's GonNa be a daunting challenge. But it wouldn't be the worst thing thing necessarily in the big picture for them to lose those two games and I'm going to have to say that too. I think that what this four game losing streak has really shown. And we'll find out how long that losing streak continues. But I think there I think I think the plan Derek Carr these last four weeks when you look at it on a hall we can we. We can point all the fingers we want. What's happening at wider theater and the playmakers this and that I think I think he's been exposed himself to be sort of who he is. And I think it's GonNa Force the raiders and this is probably a good thing in the whole scheme of things can take a serious look adopted vision in the off season for the first I I am in since basically he's been here and I think that the truth revealed itself and sometimes you need that harsh reality and you know if they had snuck a win here or sneak a win there and made it look back there. Are you know really on their way with their with their quarterback of the future. Sometimes those things this can fetch you back a little bit because it's fold go gold. You're going to believe in something. That's not real and I think these last few weeks we've probably seen what we I the raiders. At least. I've seen what they need to see. From Derek Carr. I think there should be and there probably will be earnest effort to find another quarterback define the quarterback of the future. I'm not saying that they're gonNA cut him. I'm not saying that they're going to train him graduate. They're going to be open to seeing affected improve at that position habit all eyes will be on Derek Carr as they head into the Los Angeles chargers Home Field for a game sometimes actually isn't really a home game for the chargers. It's more number. One for the raiders. So we'll see how things play out when we get down there and I'll be fine only joining back with you to next week when we get into Los Angeles.

"heidi fang" Discussed on Vegas Nation - Raiders Football

"Sign up today and get a new site sided with up to fifty dollars all right well. Let's get into the game you brought up keelan doc- had a big game fifty two yards for him. I there's there's a lot of guys that i saw jon gruden after the game talking in the locker room saying the august thirty first is going to be very difficult for them getting down to that fifty eighty three man roster obviously this game. We gotta look at a lot of different people who may be on that bubble people like marcel. Eight-man people like up here smell fennell keelan. Dos <hes> what do you think as far as results helped out anybody's case tonight who was the big standout boy i think it was dos and i think it is mainly because he continues to catch the ball right and i wanted to write about more of the wide receivers verse but an original story was going to be but as the game kept going on you kept seeing drops i mean jon gruden pointed out in his press conference. He said that they're probably two touchdown. Touchdown passes that nate peterman had than being dropped so when you keep seeing that it's like man who is actually continuing to make plays an is keen dos right that that seventeen yard grabby head on the right side line which was probably a throw that was a little bit underthrown by peterman when he goes back grabs <hes> pity key taps the toes and then he goes out of bounce. Those are things a professional wide receivers. Do those are the kinds of things that you say all right. We know that we can utilize as your skill set at this level so that's what they have to keep looking for right and when you're seeing guys just go down with field and sometimes it catches just sometimes they don't yes. They're going to have some maybe difficult decisions to make when you drop the ball and makes it easier all right. We have to get out of this. Quarterback battle is is it going to be nathan peterman or is it going to be mike. Glennon glennon was pulled after just i think nine attempts and four completions thirty eight yards then we had nathan peterman come in in and play the majority of the game after that it was about what mid second quarter i think that <hes> peterman came into the game so when you had the look that we had last week at glennon and then and this week you get more of a look at peterman who between these two is separating themselves as who is going to be that backup for derek carr adam well. I think both it's going to be on the team. I i get the feeling that grew has kept three in the past they kept to last year. I think he wants to keep three a lot of that will determine some of these other positions like who they need to keep deep. If guys are making pushes for the roster and i know one of the things that drew and talked about tonight is potentially five undrafted guys making the roster all of a sudden. You have to start considering. Do you keep dan but i think right now. They're really comfortable with glennon as number two but i think gruden's very intrigued by peterman potential and i don't think to let him go <hes>. I don't know if he believes leaves if they let him go they could. They could keep him around down the road so something tells me he's much more comfortable with glennon right now if they need to go to somebody but he wants that beat him around and he'll keep three other oscar and that's how i feel that they're gonna shake out quarterback camp. It was interesting. I mean gruden was asked after the game basically when he said we we'd seen enough from london so that's why we didn't necessarily need to have him play more than one quarter so he was asked after the game does that mean gene that you've made a decision there and go on not gonna get into that but he did say they really like blunt and and he continues to say he likes nathan peterman. He really really liked what he was able to do. Leading the team down the field for that in two minute drill so that they can kick the game winning field goal so i tend to agree with you adam. I think you know you ever see that old. El paso commercial with the little girl and the tacos and she's like board games does the john curtin and the two quarterbacks okay so the raiders pull out this win three no now in the preseason twenty to twenty twenty one final score and daniel carlson hits all three of his field goal. The last one is eight seconds remaining to put the raiders up when you're talking about morale and team building and that this team is trying to grow its culture. How big is this for the raiders right now as they head into their final preseason game against the seahawks. I'll let you asked this but i'm going to say zero. Just turn it over to mile. I i absolutely agree. I you know what is weird like. I cover teams. I always think man. It's probably good to get a loss in there in the preseason because when you go undefeated in the preseason usually you're going to be bad. Remember the owens sixteen sixteen lions or the own sixteen browns or knowing the preseason now you can also point two teams like i think the raiders had have some kind of strange preseason winning streak going on that somehow got to continue tonight because their game dot like terminated because of inclement weather uh-huh sixteenth win in a row in the preseason that's insane. That's so strange so like they're the outlier but i don't think wins and losses to me. Don't matter in the this is i. I like ingrained can get excited. You know it's better to win than it is to lose sure but at the end of the day you win. If you don't have any injuries in your game and you know tonight for the raiders they really didn't play anybody of consequence in. They didn't really have anybody go down. The green bay packers did so tonight tonight whether came out on top of the store or not you want and the one thing the only thing that i think is mattered in the preseason is that defense was so bad last year and listen tonight. It was a very weird game in the packers. Were you know packers didn't play anybody. They didn't even dress thirty three guys right before the game started because the field like they were playing anything in the raiders didn't have really i started out there but i look at last week. The way that their first team defense played in listen arizona's work-in-progress they blitzed and arizona didn't expect it like there was a lot of things that went their way but i think they're building some confidence in the preseason as far as their defense not being historically bad and i think that is the only thing you can take away and say okay look. We know there's more talent on the defense. They're actually performing on the field. They're getting more comfortable in paul gutters defense so there's progress being made in confidence being built there but for the most part the end result nothing that that kick going through the uprights of the game meant nothing nothing at all anything no honestly okay so. It's a high pressure situation well high high pressure. We came up with that but you have coal as your holder and you got your long snapper and now you've got carlson as is your kicker that battery it is a whole as a little bit important to make sure that you can get that right but other than that i mean it's is very inconsequential but i think thank you know as you mentioned. Defense is better six sacks in the last two games. That's not bad yeah. It's almost not what they had last season in fact civil actually funny. I asked gruden about that. After the game he said we challenged them at halftime because debt green bay was able to go up and down the field because weren't getting anything with a rush so challenge them at halftime. They came out and they performed better in the airport. That's it's good and it's great that you have this insight because as you are down in the field in winnipeg <hes> after the game did anybody happened to bring up the name antonio brown. Did anything come of that name from <hes> was he there. Did he run some practice reps. I did see him. I think actually on the sideline they show him shaking some hands with some fans any news about him and this helmet grievance that goes ozan tomorrow no news in particular he was there. Yes he also was wearing a helmet during pregame warmups. I do not know exactly exactly what kind of helmet that was that he was wearing a helmet. He was also very excited. <hes> when daniel carlson game winning field goal went through are running down the sideline that was nice to see gene so he was there. The only times named up brought a post game was when a reporter asked jon gruden about you know the distractions of the entire her off at training camp. You know basically all of august you know you are not you had the weirdness of traveling the winnipeg and kind of unprompted jon gruden brought up tonio brown's name in ceylon tonio brown here and he's fine la la la and i'm not talking about anymore. Extractions intially five undrafted rookies who might make this team so i was like okay well. Nobody really asked us simply about antonio brown but you brought up antonio brown all right so we can keep up with that story and you guys well on vegas nation dot com. That'll do it for us today. We've got to let him go right now because he's in winnipeg. He's got to enjoy himself yeah yeah. It's got so much out there from what i understand. We're going to go get some room service and go to sleep. Come on my take up room. Service is already close nan. Oh that's most of them close around route ten o'clock the tim hortons.

"It's been really cool to be honest with you because people get to see us in our environment people don't get to see coach Gruden Council rugby's how much he loves them they see the clip you know yelling at people and stuff like that right they don't get to see me jumping people they don't get else what's up everybody it's time for another edition of the biggest nation podcast tidy thing here with Michael Elkin and Ed Greenie we are all down in Napa for the eaters training camp it's a Sunday night here NAPA and we're all down at this Mexican place I hope you can hear the music very authentic good food I had beautiful fish Tacos perfect how you guys do your entree this evening Michael was good it was good thank you for that introduction his lovely it's of all the places that we could have gone a Napa I'm glad we chose free as Mexican grill with the Mariachi band playing the speaker overhead it's it's wonderful what else could you ask for how are you doing white Zinfandel well I I'm surprised there's actually wine on the menu here in Napa but would like maybe a glass of the Mario Andretti Merlot here at Fritos I'm a little worried that we didn't try the three dollar Ip but that was probably a good decision you're not into Craft Beers that craft beer craft beers not three dollars well let's buxom football and again you can find the biggest nation podcasts on the Vegas Nation APP Vegas Nation Dot Com or review journal Dot com slash podcast please let us know what you think and we always appreciate the feedback any comments you have you can find us all on twitter at at Greenie I'm Heidi Fang and at Gilkisson NFL and we are brought to you by Sports Mobile Stations Casino so today we were at the second day of training camp it is Hyundai and the non football injury list we found out right in the beginning Antonio Brown is off that list he was placed on it for the first day he's now off of it it so this is good news right Michael Yeah no surprise sincerely because we've heard throughout this curie where he was on it was a minor injury undisclosed but minor and so I didn't know exactly win he'd be activated at we've talked about that on Saturday and I've probably I was GonNa be another few more days but he was active enough to be participating in a walk through he riled up the crowd talk about twelve hundred season ticket holders there at the Middle School feel that redwood middle school and he looked like himself now obviously interesting we smart with them so when it came actual practice on Sunday he didn't go through stretch she didn't do individuals who didn't do anything you really just hung out with his family including his boys they're so pretty easy to type of the start for Antonio Brown here training camp but it's more time more opportunity more reps for Jerry car to work and all these other receivers we as jj Nelson was very active in years we thought he was oh sorry checks coming here Mexican Cantina Napa we could drop the card put the card on the reps more title William Renfro under these guys are all players who can use the time with jerry car so it's going to happen in terms of Antonio Brown on the field soon but in the interim aren't too concerned about it sons had a nice little walk through today I saw on facebook feed by Antonio Brown that his sons Billy Auto Ali and Apollo were all doing drills and I think Ali is the oldest one needs to have some really sharp but we're GonNa know if you guys saw that but when Derek Carr sons through one of Antonio Brown's son that was Carter Brown connection here pretty fun hard knocks the kids cameras NFL films they're all over the car and Brown children they're adorable so I get it but you'll probably see some of that hard knocks we've had good of comments from Derek Carr from Mike Mayock all speaking about hard knocks and Mike mayock take hey we didn't look for this we didn't really want this you know it's okay we're dealing with it and derek cars like hey we're going to show the world the different side of the raiders everybody's GonNa get to know what we're like behind the scenes and when it comes down to how much our presence have you seen from hard knocks and most importantly do you think this is a distraction for the team Mike and I talked about this today on the field you know they're so the shirts they're all their hard knocks shirts and you there because they're in the middle of the field with boom mikes and cameras and that's not usually allowed during practice but it doesn't seem like a distraction I think these guys feels just football and they're practicing now off the field we haven't been able to see it and we will see on the show at Derek Cars House within the meeting rooms and then hotel rooms everything we don't see I'm sure there might be more of a distraction but I think the football part of it's not a distraction at all I don't know what you think but I just you know other than there being more cameras around it doesn't seem like much of a distraction I would agree I agree but I also acknowledge the fact that there's a reason why teams don't volunteer for this sort of thing why are the browns after having Donna didn't volunteer do it again when the rams have done it involuntary do it again and wipe the rear is probably won't volunteer to do it in two thousand twenty is coaches academ- around puts more information out there into the public that they don't want and so from that standpoint it's I would say it's a bit of it direction just because now as a head coach your conscious of that sort of thing you have to look over an episode before areas with your Pr Department and it's time that you're spending otherwise you wouldn't be so I think that's to some degree distraction but it's all based on how you handle it it can be even more one if you led to the I'm telling you what if I were the coach of any team I would agree to drink thirty straight gallons of the Andretti Chardonnay fritos than I would ever allowing hard it's near my football team in Michael's right football people especially coaches are the most paranoid lunatics in the entire world the lasting some of the group wants extra cameras and people around his meetings there in San same these people they want nothing to do with this so I could and I'm glad MICMAC said it and not United about this we talked with us for We started this wonderful podcast I want to play that Mike Mayock clip where he says we did not invite this and what I'd like that a is that I grew up in the NFL films building basically I spent weeks months years in that building Steve Sable was not only a mentor but a friend to me So I have the utmost respect for I know half the camera people just from from New South Southern New Jersey in Marlton Bottom line for me John and I are kind of old school and the reason you go away to training camp is to get away from all the distractions get together donned learned your assignments no distractions no intrusions are knox as an intrusion but it was handed to us so it's up to us to deal with it and like we're really dealing with it in a professional way Tim Ramp from from NFL films are directors done a great job we've been constant communication every single day I think we come up with a plan where they feel like they can get what they need and we feel like we can get done what we need and so far it's been great Michael Michael Yeltsin Journal what do you think about having hard knocks here at the NAPA facility my question it is now take hard knocks is the big thing for the raiders will be featured starting August six and we will be doing weekly podcast wrapping up every episode. has has happened and aired we're GonNa talk about it gave you an

"Like I said to bring a right kind of p Glenn here we think that can build championship football team because the most loyal fans in the world and I know it hurts that we might not be the Oakland raiders forever but we are still raider nation. I think it's going to be hey everyone it's Heidi Fang here along with our readers beat writer Michael Belkin we're in person here last two working at the Oakland Raiders Headquarters Allen Mita Michael Today being the first day of otas on this Tuesday evening and looking forward to seeing the whole team finally kind of working as a unit what their chemistry looks like of course today just being the first day voted as we didn't really get a full scope of that but what was your immediate takes on looking at the him on the field while I think it's pretty obvious certain positions are going to be a lot more competitive this year and just to go offense and defense offensively at Rec- ever although Antonio Brown was on field he's been extremely active throughout this voluntary work workout program is expected to rejoin teammates in relatively short order Britain didn't specify why Antonio Brown at practice but it doesn't seem to be a particular concern but still you look at that depth chart out wide receiver Anders Antonio Brown there's Tyrone Williams there's Ryan grant there's Hunter Renfro they kind of go go down the list includes also rookie free agent Keelan dos who could make things interesting come training camp in the preseason it's a really competitive group with that competition comes the obstacle of building chemistry which it falls on every single one of those receivers also Derek Carr but when you see car lobby deep paths for Tara Williams he catches in stride for fifty five yard touchdown it certainly bodes well for the future nice little flash that came early here in not as and I would say defensively cornerback Loyd that is going to be a competitive group you know you look at Nick Nelson Guy who played a considerable amount as a rookie fourth round pick in two thousand eighteen I mean he might not make the fifty three man roster if everyone shows up as it could I mean how many corners can you keep how many DB's can you keep that's GonNa be really interesting to see and so we had Darryl Worley was rotating in I saw limited reps on Tuesday because he's coming off the shoulder surgery up Garin Conley was healthy Drafted a couple of quarterbacks lamarcus joyner looks really good as a nickel corner so on and on you go that quarterback group in particular should be much improved you talked about Derek Carr and his improvement and that Balmy through to Tyrel Williams here so my question is in this Susan can we expect not just to see Derek Carr elevate his game but to see an elevated game on offense altogether with the weapons the offensive line the addition of Trent Brown how improve do we expect this raiders offense to be it should be much improved I think a huge thing for this offense for a car is the cotton constancy in the system where he's not learning a new system it's you know Jon Gruden still here he's got the same play caller uh-huh Derek Carr had four different playcallers in his first five seasons in the NFL in so now with Gruden obviously back in going anywhere really afford Sircar chance to get comfortable and it's ironic now that Derek Carr has some constancy on offense but rare to really press the reset button on his receipt record. I mean these number one tight end right now is someone that they're really excited about during waller but it's just been such limited playing time of for Waller overall in his NFL career and with the raiders he was a November arrival when they signed him off the Baltimore Ravens practice squad so Things look pretty good on paper I think there's a high ceiling but still there's a lot of work that needs to be done in order to get this whole thing together with Oj's being the first time that players are actually in helmets this off season it's the first time that offensive and defensive players are able to go against each other in drills all of those you know chemistry those types of things and Constancio in terms of just knowing that you're throwing the past the runway routes and just kind of reading between the lines some of those agencies that come into being football players and being teammates all that is now starting underway and again you are listening to the Vegas Nation podcast with Michael Can Heidi Fan you can find us online at review journal Dot com slash podcast and anywhere you find your podcast subscribe drops align let us know what you think about this show and how we're doing and I'm very excited about this particular episode not just because we're her in person together finally getting to talk just face to face but also because we will be joined by Doug Martin who's had interesting offseason an interesting day it taking all the first team reps with Derek Carr after Josh Jacobs Kinda exited the field what happened there so we don't really know exactly what the relation is involving Josh Jacobs but he was on the field stretching and it be it for whatever reason the he win doors following the stretch periods so that left in the speaking of competition the raiders running back group is going to be pretty interesting I talked to Doug Martin a little bit about that but he spoke about just the opportunity that he had on Tuesday which is emblematic of the opportunity that he had last season where marshawn lynch suffers a seasoning growing injury in October and Doug Martin carry the load thereafter and for someone who many people discarded as kind of being done as an NFL player Doug Martin show that he's still got a lot in the tank average more than four yards per carry on season he had more than a hundred Russia one hundred or more yards or the final two games of the season and so on Tuesday it was next man up and Doug Martin who's pretty good in the passing game show that again on Tuesday he answered the call and he's kind of a Ninja it gets to the goal line like he can get into little rockets and holes that I don't think a lot of people see him coming there you're expecting like a power back to kind of take that role on but Doug Martin he's finds his way in in and he he can really leap to I remember a couple times last year where he leapt over the pile and I was really impressed so Doug Martin we will have him here a bit later on the show but where do you you think the most interesting you mentioned the competition at running back where do you think the most interesting competition will be for this team I think cornerback really interesting The backup quarterback quarterback as well you know who's GonNa be the number two Mike Lennon saw some work there but Nathan Peterman figures to figure commonly that as well we'll see what sort of competition lend you Jones toward pushy can make I wide receivers can be really interesting you really throughout this roster the way it should be ideally in May that should be difficult question to answer because there are so many spots that pop up in defensive line Eddie van or dose who is he in the NFL you know he had a rookie season or played a lot of snaps and then the two thousand seven nineteen third round pick in the very last quarter of the final game of the season terraces acl worst possible time because how the eats into your offseason and into your ensuing season suffered a setback in training camp and missed the entirety of two thousand eighteen because of it you know how did he figure into the this defensive line rotation or on the depth chart can you make this fifty three man roster at all you know if he's a very confident in the readers confident in what he can do but we're going to see a lot terms of that left guard who's going to be the man there the competition for Denzel good might not currently be in the building a raiders figured assign someone there Frenchie incognito visited this month so I go on and on about the competition on his roster but it should be should be really good throughout in we even got a competition he said he's willing to play anywhere on that line right now I think he's still at left tackle so he did say that he'd be willing to shift around but I would like to see him in a role the would kind of behoove him not just for his experience and what he can do but for the offensive line as a whole so Trent Brown Colton Miller Gabe Jackson You mentioned Denzil good and of course.

"This is a tough way you're going to be in for seven or eight years you're going to have some years where you're you're going to have to really prove your mental toughness we're planning for a lot I feel like we're making some strides we're just kind of keep building laying the bricks and trying to land a foundation for the future this football team Okay Vegas nation it's time for another episode of the Vegas Nation podcast I'm your host Heidi Fang today joined with as always are raiders beat writer Michael Ken who resides out in the bay area and brings us all the news that you need need to keep on top of everything happening with the raiders from week to week and you can find everything that he does review journal Dot Com as well as in the paper the Las Vegas Review Journal this week the raiders coming off what could have been a huge upset in the AFC west against the chiefs of forty three the free loss that was spoiled by turnovers we're going to get into that as well as the upcoming steelers game that time move now flexed to the ones ninety five Pacific Time start it was originally slated as a night game now happening at one twenty five PM locally here on the Pacific coast four twenty five eastern so we'll break down that game for you and we'll also hear from Titan Jared Cook who's having a pretty stellar year for the raiders considering the season that the team is having he has been a bright spot among them also isn't that top five still among tight ends in the NFL so Jerry Cook he's a guy that wants to eventually make it to the pro bowls we're GonNa hear from him Michael's able to get an interview there but first off Michael how are you doing today I'm good it's pretty cold here in the bay area how's the weather wrong over there and I am dressed in a turtleneck sweater which is something I don't often do not a turtleneck kind person but this this has been the you know in the forty is out here in the even in the mid fifties and you know even though that's not what I was used to when I lived on the East Coast it's pretty darn cold I'm staying nice and warm and toasty as much as possible the studio Larry Mirrors in here he's got it at a very comfortable feels like seventy degrees so that's listen relaxing to have the nice warmth in the studio but it's good to hear from you again and we were out there in Oakland where the raiders I had this very kind of on the edge of your seat game can't coming down to almost like the last possession that they had the ball where they could have they should have but it wasn't there because what happened was every running back three of them anyway that the ball fumbled which caused the raiders? The game cost the raiders the game and you even wrote that that hadn't happened back to the one thousand nine hundred seventy AFL NFL merger and that was the first time that had happened with three different running backs lost at least one fumble on offense in the same game Michael You wrote about it we lived it wooded Jamaica the raiders and that fumbling and how how it could've been this could have been the big upset for them you know that this could have been this infor- win of John Gruden's first season with the raiders and instead it of course wasn't realized those fumbles that you mentioning were critical reason as to why that signature wind did not happen and it's Earl Fluke when he looked at the grand context of this raiders season where fumbling the law hasn't been real issue for this backfield the backfield has had into the game three hundred sixteen offense of touches that includes marshawn Lynch of course isn't available on into reserve the groin injury but three hundred sixteen and in the very first twenty offense touches you had general rashard commit a fumble that he lost you had younger Washington fumble that he lost and then get a Doug Martin Yang to Washington and then Jalen Rashard late and the Rashard one was a real AH painful one on the scoreboard the first two lost fumbles resulted in field goals for shards were created are led to a touchdown and that really the difference of the game a thirteen point twain terms of thirteen points off turnovers McLean decided by one touchdown so I definitely not something that the raiders imagined happening you saw at practice Wednesday Jamal singleton the raiders running backs coach he obviously was irate on the Xilai was looking for the press box vernaculars seeing the way he was reacting after each fumble after the second one he was standing near the sideline bench his running backs were sitting on that bench and after having made his point about his expectations as related to Bosecurity he screamed you got me you got me you got me at each one of his running backs and then of course the third phone will happen when singled in looked at those fumbles he saw steam of the ball is being punched out including when he was running backs might be falling to the ground walk in the process of being tackled and so during Wednesday's session he introduced a new drill to practice he had a long stick with a year like this one Larry it was Heidi Boston to the the boxing gloves that was take to the end of the stick and he's just taking the stick and just throwing haymakers at his running back the different angles including with the running backs falling to the ground and so if you're going to punch out punch out of your grant well I'm GonNa be punching at you over versus the practice week and so that was a new drill a Doug Martin laughed thing that you really liked that drill and then guys got a kick out of you could tell sometimes they were kind of fighting their ways threw it is added essentially do up downs while going over bags and have someone punch at them with a stick and so single didn't seem to enjoy it but rather ought to do that that's great that you broke that down because that was actually my next question to you I would imagine that they would have them going through some sort of drill with this having happened and to prevent that from happening in the next game obviously that being against the steelers and the steelers are no joke on defense either so I would think they would have to really drill this kind of thing in to make sure that it doesn't happen again to prevent it and to Harvey Asli Not cost them another game mm-hmm Derek Carr still not throwing interceptions that has to be some sort of record for the team right now I believe it would surpass a streak set by rich Bannon. If I'm not mistaken I'll have to check that but I am right okay so you know I just think that they've been really good about pre attacking the football and this one costing them again against the chiefs and it would have brought the chiefs right to where the chargers are at in the stands endings if they were able to force that upset and this week they could force another upset because the steelers are a top of their division so if the raiders can keep playing that role it could become kind of interesting to see what happens as the end of the season plays out for them so again they have to face Kansas city at the end of the year but that one being in Kansas City so I don't know if they'll have the same momentum going into that game that they did for this one but again a really tough loss woods the feeling been like in the Locker Room Michael coming off of that loss and I mean it wasn't if it weren't for those turnovers could've been so close forty two thirty three what's the feeling with the locker room would agree to have to say during the the media session that just occurred I just this afternoon on Wednesday they're Kinda feels like a win quite honestly he feels like they almost won that game and I know they didn't it was forty two thirty three and of course players and his locker room they don't believe more victories in stand there too understand that it's one thing to push team to into the fourth quarter to fight another to actually talk that team with a victory still being said that I understand how good the Kansas City chiefs are and they understand that based on the way that they were plain x cuting despite there's that they had they were able you hang around them and so that is something of a point of encouragement move forward and I think if anything else this game.
