"Have to get something off your mind Colleague four four four the USA and let in no 844-484-3872 the Dan bongino show So I want you to listen to this clip coming up of the angry lawn gnome Doctor Fauci And think about if it was some kind of totalitarian talking I asked you this would maybe the tone of the language and the exact words would be different but with the general message be any different I mean when you look at totalitarians right And you look at people who have had tyrannical impulses throughout human history you'll notice it always comes through the guise of well this is where the public good I mean none of these tyrants actually come out and say things like hey man we're really trying to screw you all over Give us a shot It always comes under the guise of this is something for something for the public good that's going to advance public prosperity whatever it may be And it never actually does that It actually does the opposite Obviously so listen to this card cue up for me cartoon This is Fauci He's on CNN or whatever may be And he's interviewing The Washington Post And he says he starts talking about you know just do the mandate thing The mandates would be good because it's good for us It's for the public good And I want you to keep in mind as you're listening to this that this guy is supposed to be a health professional a medical professional who has never met you in your life He's never diagnosed you He's never examined you The man has no idea your health condition your history of vaccines none of it But he knows on television on this interview here He knows what's good for you which is like magic Check this out No one likes to be mandating for people to do things that they might be hesitant to do But quite frankly you have to when you're in the middle of what we call a historic experience of the worst pandemic of a respiratory disease in the last hundred years we have to put the communal responsibility ahead of individual preferences So although no one myself included likes to be told what you have to do sometimes if you don't come to the realization that it is good for yourself for your family and for the communal good then mandates or requirements become necessary I'm not joking Like when you were to take that language and compare it to speeches from people who've done really awful things To advance their totalitarian tyrannical impulse the language may not be as hard she may have taken the edge off it but the general gist of it is exactly the same No this is all in your best interest And a very kind of common sense question should follow a statement like that This is we're doing what's good for you Good for yourself as he said How many of these people have you met Doctor Fauci And the answer is he's probably met none of them There are 330 million Americans This guy is personally diagnosed because he's not even practicing medicine anymore in the traditional sense He's probably met none of them He may have seen and heard about people on TV He has no idea I think about the radio host we had on the show fired by cumulus John Simpson I've known toron a long time We had him on the show we interviewed him and Shaun said that he didn't get the vaccine before he was fired Fired By cumulus 'cause it dances before he was fired by them He said listen I spoke to my doctor and I have an issue with this with these blood clots and the doctor didn't think it was a good idea I didn't know that about trying to have no Tron forever Why Saw my business I never asked them I'm not sharing his medical information he shared it with us on the show He said it But that's an interesting piece of information isn't it So Fauci who's never examined any of these people he's talking to is telling you on a television camera through a one way transmission You can't talk back to him He's telling you what's good for you and telling you shut your mouth and the mandates are coming next why Because we said so The guy knows nothing about you He has never met you By the way I got Lisa booth coming up who's one of the best guests ever She's on Fox a lot You've seen her She guest hosted my show She's gonna be guesthouse than this show by the way When around the holidays we have some guests hosted She's never she's hot on this topic too He has never met you He has no idea what your medical conditions are He could be forcing a vaccine on someone because he's unaware of their unique medical condition This is why objects so strongly to these stupid one size fits all mandates like this dunt of a company here is doing This is why I object to this You have no idea you've never met these people It's the pretense of knowledge the fatal can see This idea that you have some special knowledge set because.

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

"Feels like it'd be a relatively seamless transition where he steps in gets acclimated a little bit and then we'll be able to fit right in as a as a potential difference maker on defense but again money talks and it's a salary job lee and there are salary issues at this point and of course he wants. You know he's gonna wanna get top dollar. And and that's completely understandable as what he's advocating more mindful exactly and so Short of that which you know the writers are always going to be linked to right right now considering where they are linebacker short of that. You know They're going to get their here the week back yet. Sergei shin. but they'll get the live. Better linebacker maya ohio state back on the grass This week nick kwiatkoski us week after getting hurt in the preseason opener against seattle seahawks is in line to get back here fairly soon as well so that will help No doubt about it but you know if you're down Nicholas moron starter. The guy with the green dot. We got a call the defense and javan white. Who was having a really good training camp It's it's it's not. It's not ideal. So i would expect that. The raiders one way or another arguing to bring somebody in at some point you know because they need the bodies training camp. I need the bodies in in their games Or with there's one more game left san francisco forty niners and maybe try to find somebody that's going to be able to give them some relief But we'll see that To be determined. I would expect some kind of news on on that front this week. richie income neo. It doesn't sound like that. All that serious was calf strain. Jon gruden mentioned it on saturday up in los angeles. So we'll see how long that takes. The raiders are going to be extra cautious with richie incognito. Good news is doesn't it's not related to the achilles tendon injury. He suffered last year so something completely separate but with a guy that you know thirty seven years old. You're going to be as careful as possible. They need richie for the long haul. So the hope is from the raiders. Front that richie will be ready to go. Season-opener september thirteenth guarantees about point. If not then you know. You've got john simpson. You'd probably see denzel get more to right. Guard john timpson takeover at left guard kind of flip-flopping denzel and he's played a lotta right guard in place of she and cognitive last year. So there's some depth there but again every time he started talking about getting into your debt. Now you're you know getting thinner as far as the behind the the starting players. We'll keep an eye out on that But you know sam again. This time of year injuries are going to start piling up whether you're talking about giant package whose side training or attorney crat pack is or of course preseason games for short running for short. And you know. I think it's good on the raiders for you know for the most part not playing their starters In the preseason. That's that's that seems like. That's where the trend that were the. Nfl is going look. You know we've seen as far too many times where and marquee player star a starter goes down for a you know some kind of season ending or ten week injury in the preseason and it feels like a league is finally is adapting to that. Hey all our heavy hitters stand on the sidelines and pre season is more about you know for the most part competition between. Who's gonna between spying faucet or that are open between the twos and threes figuring out..

"Richie. incognito note. I don't know if you need to see them. Maybe you do a lot of brand parker. John simpson You know the game's going to be what we expected to be. It's going to be more interesting to me. What the atmosphere is. How loud it is. I've seen it for a concert. You've been in it for your there for soccer concert right you okay. You've seen both football. Tends to be a little different in terms of reactions everything. We won't finally here jon. Gruden yelling plays During the game because the laugh cb atmosphere so. I'm just more interested in that we've seen we saw the cowboy game. I mean Little betting advice. And you'll tell me if i'm wrong. The under seemed to be good on these games because no one ever plays. I heard you talking about that today. Gave me a few tips. I so i'm more apt to consider what the atmosphere is saturday. The game will be the game. I don't think like you said anyone. That matters is going to be put in harm's way but i do think there's a few guys that you can watch and be kinda interested in. I would guess trayvon martin would be a guy who might be the most interesting again. We were talking about hard nazia today. Where michael peterson is a great player for the cowboys and he's a rookie. Who was mad. They didn't put him back in for more snap. I mean i would love because every year we get this. In with the raiders. A couple of years ago as the keelan dos effect. Which it it's weird so a lot of times people say oh hard knocks just chooses people to to feature and make them look. Good and again with the raiders. It was killing dasa all of a sudden. He looked like a superstar. Then it came to the season and he did prove a whole lot. but i don't think it's hard knocks making them look good every year in training camp and we we have seen this by covering a few training camps. Now there's always those guys that just look amazing in training that is absolutely amazing it. it's not hard knocks fault that they feature those guys they're actually telling the story of who's looking great and camp. They're not saying that they're gonna look good once the season starts saying hey. This guy's dominated kip last year. With the raiders. Who is bryan edwards..

"At. That's all i can tell you a lot of reporting lately. That the raiders. Mgm want elision stadium at one hundred percent capacity for the home opener. What excites you most about that idea. And what concerns if any do you have about Fan and player safety as it relates to one hundred percent capacity. We were two and six at home last year. We were six and two on the road last year. So getting fans in those stands are pretty important to us. We want to turn that stadium the home field advantage I can't speak for player. Safety fan safety. That's for all the government officials and the nfl officials. All i know as somebody with a vested interest in getting out there in an exciting filled arena. We can't frigging wake. That place needs to rock and it needs to be a home. Field advantage by new gaza pitted big with. Scsi's such as brandon parker. And max crosby. Would you say it's a little harder to really go after he smaller school guys this offseason are you. Just kinda have the same mentality and knows much about these guys when we small schools possible. Yeah information is king in any draft. And it's gotten harder and harder to collect the appropriate information the last two years. I mean. that's it in a nutshell right. That's what these last two drafts have been about collecting the proper information and they've been different challenges so if we feel good about small school kid in collecting the information Watching the tape heck go. Let's roll but It really is difficult and for forget. Fcs just for a second or small school. Big school you know. Just what about the guys for whatever. Reason haven't played since nineteen big school or a little school. Now you go back and watch nineteen tape now. Some of those guys have been out training for year to get ready for their pro day or combine and now guys are lighten up pro day. Numbers left and right. How legit are those numbers. How do you feel about the medical which is still trickling in each day. We just started getting medical a few days ago usually get right after the combine so. I'm literally finishing. Updraft meetings This week and we don't even have medical grades on a bunch of guys that we that that we can trust so you know. We're digging hard on medical. And i think it's a great question and i think the answer is every cases an individual one big little school. It's just how confident are we in the information that's been collected. Obviously there's a new voice in the building. Gus bradley and his staff Through free agency now the draft process. How is his presence Being felt in what's relationship With with those their new guys. Yeah i mean. I've known gusts for twenty years. I think And what's cool about goss. He's got away about him. That's inclusive and by that. I mean whether it's the players. The fellow coaches the scouts. He's all in and he's trying to help you make your job better. I mean we were in Think it was february meetings in our draft room with the scouts and he came in with mask on. But but but auger gary and he said i need two minutes and two minutes became two hours. We sat in there and pick his brain for two hours when he came in. And just say hey you guys got anything for me. Can i help you two hours later. It was like oh my god. He's got to get to meeting. And that happens every day with gusts. Just just a very alc- owing infectious guy that wants to. He's one of those people that connects other people if that makes any sense and i think that's an awesome attribute for coordinator review journal. You talked about some of the medical. Being slow to trickle in and still trying to do all the due diligence there and then the not being able to sit down and have a meal and and close conversation with guys sometimes. Yellow flags check out. And you're like okay. We're not concerned anymore. Or sometimes they become red flags. Does that whole thing make it more difficult to look at a guy that might have some questions and really invest in him. Not having that opportunity to be around him it does. I'm a big believer that when you get on the kids campus and you get to have dinner with them night before pro day or just as importantly sit in a meeting room with him and put some film up and spend an hour picking his brain face to face not over zoom On top of that the thirty visits haven't had a thirty visits since two thousand nineteen. You know the thirty visits you get thirty players in your building for a day. Not for an hour. Zoom call you get thirty players in for a day you can grind the heck out of him for a day. You can have some fun with these guys. You can figure out which guys love it and which guys are worn out by two in the afternoon you know. And they're in there with the coaches. The position coach the head coach. The coordinator the strength and conditioning. They're meeting with a lot of people. And you find out a lot about a guy over a day. It's a little different when you have a fifteen minute interview or an hour zoom. They've been coached up. You know it. It's a whole different process. And it's a great point about the yellow flags or the red flags. You're trying to either eliminate them or endorsement go. Yep that's a problem. He's done so a big part of getting ready for a draft is is getting your draft board downward manageable size and that's been the hardest part with the lack of medical and sometimes a lack of confirmation. Excuse me on who these kids really are mike. You mentioned henry. Ruggs and david arnott has guys that you wanted to save from. The physical standpoint gets stronger and all those things that need to happen between year one and year to Any update on those two guys In terms of that. I'm excited about both of them I don't think there's any question in our building how talented they both are. Henry's got to get stronger. Damon's gotta get stronger. They're both spending an awful lot of time. This offseason both with the strength and also the conditioning I in my mind. We're going to see different guys in a. And i made a comment a couple of months ago about rugs in about that whole class last year leading to step it up this year. I i still believe that and from rugs perspective. I mean the sky's the limit for this kid. We kind of we knew exactly what he was. And that's who he is. We had no surprises last year. And rugs now. He needs to take to the level two now. The next level up stronger better route runner finish get both feet down all those things and we think he will same thing with our net up and down year injured. Cove all kinds of different issues. We need consistency and effort. And and i'm a big believer in both kids. I'm really excited to see him. Play this year. That'll do it for this episode today here on takeaways.

"Of. But i just want to be your best version. Me that become that. I could possibly be I'm not really trying to prepare myself. Anyone else to share a just do whatever it takes for me to be my best because my best is not the same as everyone else's is is a couple more for you when you look at the draft this season coming up at twenty twenty one draft do see anybody from your alma mater of clemson that you think that the raiders should put their radar on So much tallec ahmad exclusive no telling who who are going to pick up to come here. I'm sure there's gonna be somebody or a few people but i. I really have no idea who's who's graduating next year. And you know who would want to train. Because i'm not sure where they were missing pieces. Right you do. Look the obviously right. Tackles a position that look to be filled. There's gonna be some competition there on the line. So do you think that. There's anybody in the draft that you'd think would make a good fit for that position at number seventeen. The raiders take over dragged so crazy. I try to even worry too much about it because because of how crazy it is never know. Who's gonna go. I was gonna go so. I know pitcher logistics the covid era. I didn't ask about that. You know all this kovic stuff. That's happened your draft. Experience was kind kinda different than any other that we'd ever seen in the nfl being that it was virtual so You know did that kind of hamper anything for you. As far as like going through the experience or not at all I thought the whole draft process as far as that goes like was insane. Because i've never experienced anything like that before so i'll just happy to be that. Have the opportunity to get drafted stow. It was different. Well i certainly appreciate your time into me today for the show. We look forward to seeing you. Hopefully out of training camp be a good time probably for the media to get out there and Getting out and covering more games. This season with the raiders.

Download the app and you're ready to go for senate at seven. Welcome back everybody to the takeaways edition of the vegas nation podcasts. Let's get into it right now. With general manager. Mike mayo and his thoughts on the twenty twenty one. Nfl draft migrating review journal obviously will have new faces no matter who they are on the offensive line. What more additional. Onus will this put on tom and obviously is a great faith He's proven over time in terms of at least early on a molding it into the line you want to see. I think it's an interesting. I'm actually you know. It's funny. Because i think people the public perception is author raiders. You know they made a bunch of moves on the offensive line. Therefore they're going to be worse there. And i'm kind of energized by to be really honest with you and We redid our left tackles contract colt miller and i think that showed our locker room that we were real willing to be Really aggressive in signing one of our own and somebody we believe is the cornerstone right and then people are like well. Yeah you traded away one of the best centers in football and we did. But you can't make that move unless you think you've got somebody right behind them. That can come in and compete. So you know. We look at andre james. Nick martin say look we. We feel like we can compete at center. We think we're getting younger I'm excited and energized by what are offensive line. Room is starting to look like. And i'm excited and energized. Because i think tom cable feels the same way. So we've all the respect in the world for rodney and gabe and trent. But at this point you know. We made a conscious decision to try to get younger. Maybe a little bit more athletic. And let's go. And i can't wait to see how we react last year in the draft because of the way the offseason. When you'd said that that was the reason why you wanna have all your kicks in the first four rounds and you're able to do that while it's looking like this. This offseason might be kind of similar. Do you feel any differently. You have three picks past the fourth round. You feel any differently this year about distract in that regard. It's an interesting question because it was a little bit of a different year. The positive is at least we got to go to pro days and sometimes that sounds trivial. But it's not to me. I went to a bunch of them. I like to see guys move. I like the feel them. I wanna feel a guy. Coming off the line of scrimmage. I wanna feel a quarterback throw. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to sit and meet with the kids which i think is the biggest downside to the whole thing so that part is different than last year. At least we were out in the road. We got to speak to a whole bunch of college coaches. You know that. would. I enjoyed that. We still had to do some zoom meetings this year. I don't like that even though we get a lot of information and we got after it. It's not the same as sitting down with a kid dinner with them having lunch with them watching tape with them. It's a little different conversation. So that's kind of a long way of saying that. I think this we didn't have combine so we don't have medical likely so there's compare and contrast between last year and this year some positives some negatives the medical really hard. We're still scrambling on medical right now. As is every team in the league so to answer your question. I think we're going to have some sort of off season program you know and and therefore all feel better about getting the kids in our building rather than them being at home zooming so that gives you a little bit more latitude. I think in the draft but again it's it's been a crazy.

Johnson john thank you so much for taking the time to join us today me so this is a big opportunity for you this year. Coming up i want to go back and talk a little bit about your your draft and what that experience was like for you as looks to be number seventeen coming in this year. Forty eight lots of options for the raiders to pick But you experience. I wanna go back. What was that like for you last year. Going through the draft process of twenty twenty Last year i just it was. It was very weird said at least covert a but i. I was fortunate enough to have a pro day are pretty over the last week that it had in Four that we had a combined stuff like that. So i was fortunate enough to have things was able to participate in building and that ability will be on full display in the coming season. The offensive line has had a lot of shifting a lot of shaking out. So i'm curious for you. What is the opportunity like for you looking ahead to twenty twenty one opportunity is really what whatever i make. I just gotta work work as hard as i can. You know try to starting job on is really up for grabs. Still a few older guys in there. And i'm sure you're gonna be hard as they can. I will be too. I'm up at a lot of the games and allegiance stadium. And i've always noticed that when it's pre-game you're out there you're going through the mental snaps in your head. You're working through everything on the field. How much of the process for you is mental more so than just the physical training Take majority of its Majority of it is mental physical. Part if you have. You don't in the but like i said earlier. This is really just a mental game at this point for me. Just figuring out everything make sure i had everything down pag and just taking the rise footsteps and stuff there's a lot more To know so definitely a lot mentor. Best reflection on your rookie season when you go back and you look at what life was like as a rookie. Coming into the nfl. What was that like for you. Mark my rookie season was definitely A rocky i mean. Everyone has their different courses. Whatever miles laws a little crazy for me to say lease because You know growing up football was always easy. House tape like netflix. It wasn't his challenging suffering. Best describes last year was just like. Wow this is the real deal. So i just had. It really grasped that concept. You just know that. Look this same middle school high school causing more. This is big league. So i had to overcome that. I didn't ask you about the draft experience but when you got the call who was it that it was on the phone with you as it may awkward gruden. What was what was it. It was It was because i was actually. It was the third day i watched. I watched the whole second day In house kinda like discouraged. Well you know. I don't find on go so it was pretty much like a i was. I wanna have been morning. We'll work out as somebody you know somebody. I decided i wanted to go work out. Or whatever mile in the kid Actually started cut here. Here cover my dad in. I was still in the chair. Got the call it. Everybody started yell at around the like donald. Who is is but it was. It was coast in the in the he told me he told. Me of. Las vegas raiders. Sir coming into the raiders is probably a kind of easy transition for you in the sense of you had a lot of clemson brothers already down there playing silver and black so when you came in there and you have all of these guys that have been a part of that clinton team for you. What was it like to see. Some of them on the raiders field. And was it easy for you to kind of approach them and ask for advice or tips that things like that as he came in deadly on us working out so i was working when i came through for we training camp so i talked to him a lot. Now hundred throw all those us plea we. They all helped me out a lot in cleveland on defense line. He does things that. I need to work on more stuff like that. So i was good at getting feedback. Those guys just Let let let me know that they got no matter. What and as far as the veterans that you had last season Richie incognito rodney hudson and a lot of guys. There were able to kind of set the tone of that offensive line. You had a good group of guys had a ton of years in the nfl to learn from. What is your take away from anything that they have passed onto you. And who did you up to most Dollars guys been talking a whole lot. They didn't have to say much but it was just the way they they came out every day. Ready to practice Those guys they like. I said he didn't have to say much at all. But it always was like i was always watching. Those guys dislike seeing what they do how they do in Going through the motions by bad like this foot working small things like that just everything that they did. Try to keep i am. I know those guys won't be infused. I remember reading something that said that you have modeled a lot of your game after richie incognito what did you take away from his specifically you talked a little bit there but it was anything really specific risk. He's just very aggressive when it comes to plan And that's how i wanna be a just. He has a mindset. That no one's better than him you know in kind of Could off his Be just a very greedy He's gonna do duty to do with his red or what is one word was. So what's it been like living here in las vegas for you as a transition coming into the city. Like and being part of the inaugural season and for the raiders is definitely It's been crazy This cities is it's amazing. It's crazy how nice it is a reduc- mountains and i'm not at all so but besides that was hard niceties dislike in it. Is you know like come here. Working just fisher so as you look ahead to twenty twenty one. What do you set out for yourself. What are your. What are your goals for yourself. How are you gonna build upon last season goals shared just to be better than i was last year. I kind of simple.

"One two four C. B. S. we are now at the heart of the NFL draft where they're just not even an ounce of basically just flashes on the screen so so far we have seen a keen Davis Gaither go to the Cincinnati Bengals we've seen it an offense of tackle from L. as you shall he Charles go to the Redskins John Simpson draft a guard from Clemson and the giants just drafted Darnay Holmes a corner at a UCLA and the dolphins have moved up and they've tray drafted Solomon the king Lee another offense of guard as they continue to work on their offense of lunch I think that's the third line when they've drafted now added Georgia so we are well under way in round four of the NFL draft very different in the last two nights you don't have Roger Goodell sitting on his chair no putting slippers on eating some M. and Ms announcing the picks and I gotta tell you know Roger who was trying to show personality when he went down in the chair which I have no problem with him very comfortable kind of sit down like a fireside chat almost but he said twice he said this before the draft started then when he sat down this is the chair or I watch football it the chair is even facing the TV's you will notice that the obviously may have flipped it just so we could face this camera that's filming him but I mean if he's watching the game from that year's got a terrible view off of you but the big story so far in round four is that Trent Williams who we knew eventually would be traded has been traded to the San Francisco forty Niners a third round pick next year and a fifth round pick this year going back to Washington in return for Trent Williams who did not play last year the left tackle get back to your calls toll free number is eight five five two one two for CBS Allen Paramus what's going on Joe at six US ten Saturdays are turning out to be a great day morning marathon a marathon of us which could be a bad thing and everything on your perspective yes you know what the patriots I've been all over the place as far as what Bella check you're going to do at the quarterback trying to convince myself that Jarrett Stidham is the one the more I think about it there's no way I believe that he's going he's all in with did who strolled for passes one interception in a real game in horror at the back up he can't be in with that scenario I also don't believe which I thought maybe they would have drafted another quarterback that leads me to believe that new in Dalton or wind then it's going to be on this team at the beginning and they don't have to do anything now but I can't believe you don't do your job both said well yeah he believes that he believes in Jarrett Stidham folks suppose it doesn't work out you actually believe bell check is going to give up the seat in protest would we be doing he has for years he needs another quarterback the one you think I think Jarrett Stidham is gonna be the guy hi Ellen Joe thinks that I think Joe has been on the side that they're going to go away it's somebody whether it was in this draft or it's adding one of the veterans that you just said and they're going to add a third quarterback that's going to happen the question is is it a fifth round pick pride correct or is it one of those veterans that you mention we had cam Newton because if he adds cam Newton cam's gonna start if he is indeed all my assumption is and he's going to start if you had James Winston I think James Winston is going to start I don't think he said many of those guys I really don't have I had to predicted look try to predict and kind of guess what bill Belichick's gonna do is a tough exercise but I'm looking at it this way one year ago at this very time he used a fourth round pick that's around were up to right now that's around where there are some people's pages after that quarterback he used his fourth round pick a year ago on Jarrett Stidham basing stadiums performances of a cameo during the regular season and what he did in the preseason to evaluate him it's not fair now what is bill think of them I don't know but if I had to guess right now I think there's a reason he drafted him one year ago in the fourth round this is not Brian Hoyer this is not a journeyman this is not a seventh round pick from three years ago this is a fourth round pick from last year you say giving up the seas look the patriots talent wise or not going into this season loaded with talent because besides losing Tom Brady which gets all the attention they also lost Kyle van Noy they also lost Jamie Collins they also lost Danny Shelton they also lost a Lyndon Roberts they lost a lot of key pieces on defense so tell wise they're not as good as they were last year but I don't think bill's going to look at it as I'm giving up on the year I don't think he's tanking for Trevor Lawrence I think they're gonna win football games I think it would more football games and people think man right now by the gas I think stadiums the guy's gonna get that first crack I don't think Brian Hoyer is gonna be starting quarterback and I don't think any of those veterans are gonna be the starting quarterback look what he's done in the strap is drafted a couple linebackers obviously mention a couple of the losses that he had during the off season he draft that safety Kyle Dugger and then he goes back to back tight end which he hasn't done in the same draft since Gronk and Aaron Hernandez with Dave in our CSA and then Dalton Keene so it's been interesting what bill has done so far in this rafter what is dog is done so far in this draft ladies in Boise Idaho what's going on blaze I'm actually in Santa Cruz these days first of All I Want to say Hey everybody keep your heads up stay safe and during these times a member that you can take advantage of your families aren't well in Julia's family time because a lot of going door to go back to your manager would like to go back and do that again enjoy it now okay so I'm Sloan videos guy right yep and the sense I see in this pic with what you want tell me if you think I'm wrong but we really need a strong strong presence at DB we really need a strong presence at running back and not having those options available now I can see something like something like Derrick Henry a trade to Tennessee J. O. N. for Henry an up tick or something like that we we now have ammunition to make a hello good trade that makes sense to me and well I don't think the Tennessee Titans trading Derek cannery row I mean I know that there and kind of figuring out the contract situation but I'd be very very surprised if they turn around and trade in letter format could be available well I think yeah I mean it is the kid from what's his name again gotten from Miami that they kicked **** at the end of the year last year if he goes down and they don't got no Mario to us it's just it's an aerial type of thinking that's all that's honest I'm taking that that that's where the sense to me in this pic is is we actually have something to trade for a real position we need yeah there was a so you think they drafted Jaylen hurts to to trade him I I honestly do I think that we picked him up so that we had something to go to the table where yeah I blaze I I disagree on that I think they drafted him with the intention of using him in a versatile way in twenty twenty I definitely think he's a part of the office of game plan in two thousand twenty no doubt and I think they're concerned about the health of Carson Wentz I think it's two fold I think that's what they did I don't think they looked at drafting him in the second round to then use him as some kind of magical trade chip I don't buy that and the truth is the Philadelphia Eagles are good they have a chance to win the NFC east like they always do they need to fill holes and that's kind of the issue I had with using a valuable draft asset a second round pick to fill something that's not really a whole I mean yes you want to protect yourself in case something happens to Carson Wentz I get that we've seen something happen to Carson Wentz every year I totally understand that but a second round pick no I sign a veteran quarterback like we talked about that a what I need a receiver to go along with what they have with Alshon Jeffery into Sheila Jackson and Greg ward or whatever else is on that roster at this point obviously no stragglers gone which I think is play a please many an eagle fan but I still think they have all their holes to fill their trading for Leonard Fournette that's interesting that's something to keep an eye on if they indeed turnaround and traded I resent Staten Island Hey I what happened and how someone could not conceive what Trent Williams finally got traded I think San Francisco got a good deal yeah they're right there and he really didn't have to give up too much you gotta know when we're talking you know the mystic I hate conservatives only because he's coming out of Baylor I don't think it's a finished product and we'll see what your site is one overall because you stayed United spoke with Joe I kind of understand it I would like to see the skill position player but I think that kind of show you that markets may have your answer here I think that's why they drafted them and fitness test for certain students he's not from Florida very good friend of mine who was your city with a check for a long time she was the first real scale ever to make a draft selections in the NFL draft she's the one who was responsible for drafting walked past and now she loves this kid now I don't know too much about it if you like them that much I got a good deal gotta get up put put in her face she's one of town gas and so hopefully we can get extra credit yeah right I think they are so desperate to find a pass rusher that I think every year I they almost kind of throw that lottery ticket of maybe he's the guy hi Paul lights the guy and it hasn't worked out yet but they are do you know yes this man looks if you don't take your call from Virginia but I'll tell you you know I do need to address the situation exactly correctly Georgia I'd like to see more at but then I'd be stunned if they don't take a developmental quarterback because they didn't they have to groom somebody if they're not gonna go to better route your to protection in case you get hurt well that's the thing that's the route I would go I would go the veteran route and right now and we keep mentioning the same names because there goes any dog is likely going to be out there but we know that cam Newton and Jameis Winston are out there obviously there's only so many veteran quarterbacks to go around but I think with the position that they're in I would rather have that veteran sitting behind them then a quarterback project now you want to draft the project before the fifth round and they've got extra fourth round picks now finding develop them but don't expect them to do anything this season that's for sure I was a fan of training.

"With the one hundred nine only twenty NFL draft philosophy biggest raiders selected John Simpson card from Clemson I would just rather have a thought on Trent Williams are the founders of the dots of value there with a fifth and a third being that they were maybe gonna get offense of linemen today in one of these late rounds but to lower your thoughts and Johnson said here the guard out of clubs into the Las Vegas raiders John Simpson is now powerful guard all I will say this man Mike may ox loves him some clamps and football and he loves you know handful of programs and you know Trayvon Mullen a year ago and and this kid now and he also this is a big powerful guard but it does make me think that does that mean they get the talk of there at the VA gave Jackson gave Jackson they're they're you know powerful guard is a you know on the trade market that may be the case they may trade gave Jackson this guy may be the replacement so that was my thought on that

"More about that. Sure that's that was one of the ones from my <hes> my historical studies it's <hes> it's a little bit involved but i think it's worthwhile to one of the first classes that i was assigned at fort. Bragg was teaching kim's game oddly enough which which is able to find out why skins game i i was i used to be a member of what was called the police marksmen association and i got my i got my monthly copy of the voice marksman and ahead an article in there about the indiana state the police academy and instituted this program called flash recognition and it turns out that this is a program that originally started in world war two with the navy because at the beginning of the war there was a lot of friendly fire incidents and they were doing this <hes> use this system system that was called west which was a different categories of wings engine you saw hale and basically g._i.'s being g is that you know they changed is the acronym to it actually wrong every freaking time okay so they were looking for a means to <hes> they're looking for something to replace it and they heard about the research that was being done by. This professor named samuel renshaw in ohio state university. He'd come up with this. <hes> come up with he'd been studying the use of this device called it to kiss the scope which just imagine a camera shutter in front of a slide projector record and he found out that by <hes> lashing strings of not starting off strings of numbers that people at speeds of light one one hundred of a second actually training bit your conditioning people you're training and conditioning them to see more and see faster and and you know they were able to do this in a measured way because the thing is it's like if you you flashlight up. There and people have to write down what they saw you know what was on the slide able to grade their papers. People can see whether they're making progress or not. So the navy set up a <hes> an a a recognition instructor course at ohio state and eventually there was a recognition instructor officer on <hes> you know every major ship in world war two off at one of the naval officers that went through this with the naval reserve by the name of raw soul who happened to be a <hes> police officer and <hes> he served his time and <hes> when he got back to the states he started using the <hes> flash recognition principles that he'd learned who train the other members of department and then he wound up becoming a professor of a <hes> forensic technology in <hes> dual mark examina- examinations and he started using this <hes>. This method is classes glasses. So one of his students <hes> eventually became the director of indiana state police academy and he brought professor soul win and they set up a flash recognition program in their academy and what wound up happening is is is that they had like a three hundred percent increase in onsite arrests from graduates of the school so i went ahead and <hes> i contact professor soul and i contacted indiana and both of them were gracious enough to work with me and <hes> i eventually got trained trained as a flash recognition instructor near as i can figure i'm like the last of the recognition instructor but <hes> i've got all of world war two material i mean i've got the lesson plans and the materials and all this stuff and i'm hoping that this can be the subject of my next book because it doesn't just work for sniping. It works for any job where you're using your is the power of asian exactly so when i was in germany you know when i was a master sniper. I was asked to put on an inhouse sniper school. We didn't have to send guys to the states so i was able to <hes> design. My i own curriculum. Cleverly insert inserted thirty hours of plash recognition training into it because nobody knew any better though iran a i finally got to run a sniper school with <hes> a flash recognition program based off of the world war. Two program couldn't believe the result the the best example. Was we have <hes>. This is going to be hard to relate is going to be hard to relate to but the best guy in the class at the end and he was like doing he was able to see a ten digit number at one one hundredth of a second in record it wow and just just to give you an idea why it's one hundred per second and a typical human eye. Blink is one quarter of a second. That's impressive recipe. That's a that's. That's like beyond photographic memory that point right but then the thing is it's like okay. So what do you do it well. Let's see what the numbers then you transition position over two pictures. You're basically asking your visual. You know you're asking your visual center. Hey i want you to see like this. Now with what we now know about the neural plasticity of the brain you know within limits your brain can go. Oh okay you want me to accommodate. This juoro. You had to do was asked right well. We'll john. I have only a couple things left. So if you have a couple of more minutes i did is i let a lot of my scrubbers know go ahead of time that i was gonna be talking to you and i asked if they had any questions okay great so i picked three that i that i would like to ten ping with so the first one is is a in the book you mentioned that one of the best ways to learn marksmanship is to practice the standing or offhand position so that's obviously one of the hardest wants to do which is why it's valuable to practice it but do you have any tips for the most efficient way to practice. You're standing the best way to practice. You're standing is is <hes>. There's actually is actually <hes> <hes> two things that i recommend now if you're doing it with iron sights and i didn't come up with this one. I learned this one from <hes>. I learned this one from <hes> one of my bosses at the fort bragg sniper school rick voucher it was actually a legend in the business but <hes> when we were doing <hes> we used to do standing offhand with 'em fourteens with iron sights and one of the things that he recommended is that you stand in front of a mirror and you basically basically <hes> you aim at yourself in the mirror from standing offhand now. This only works the iron sights because if you if you try this with the scope nope you can't focus your scope like you know three feet in front of you though this this is an iron sight thing and then you basically dry fire you dry i fire into a mirror of course after observing all safety precautions. I say that you know just to preclude anybody angry calling me saying shot mirror because oh you okay so the thing is see the big because the biggest thing about that is is you know everybody talks about the need for dry fire. You're but dry fire without feedback only take you so far because if you don't know that you're doing something wrong with the trigger additional drive i fire is just going to ingrain that into your nervous system so you can actually you know people realize that you you know it's not a question of just practice practice practice. You have to practice correctly and you have to get feedback from the practice the because that comes back to that you know that comes back to that delay of consequence because you can also look at that as a delay of feedback so dry firing with with iron sights dry firing going into a mirror and that way you can find out if you know your snatching the trigger okay because that's that's one of the c see the reason why the standing offhand is the you know. The benchmark is because you know when it comes to the trigger bigger control. I mean it's just you know it's just you and the rifle. I mean there's there's like nothing else supporting the rival so any mistakes are going going to be amplified in any mistakes that you correct on the standing offhand are going to be that much less when you go into a supported position okay and the other way is you know when your practice things one of the best things to do and <hes> is is basically get yourself a <hes> a good grade <hes> pellet rifle with either iron sights or scope on it and get yourself a <hes> get yourself a twenty two caliber bullet trap not a not an air rifle pella trap and <hes> and just go ahead and <hes> <hes> you know practice your practice firing. You're standing off hand with the pellet rifle well one of the other one of the other n._c._o. Icees poor brag <hes> the way al davis pointed out that you know for the cost of a you know the cost of a case of <hes> sniper ammo you could buy you could buy a fifty five gallon drum of air rifle palette yeah okay and <hes> so and then once again. You're getting feedback. They because it's like you fire you fire. <hes> you know one shot. You know you got the target you know series of bullseyes fire one shot at each bullseye and then there's you know once again. There's your feedback feedback. Target doesn't lie right so actually this is a kind of a follow question to that one is a new there was discussion recently on the website about <hes> standards and kind of what people standards are and warned the ones that came up was that at a minimum so much to be able to do for four minutes of angle from from any position including standing. Is that a fair assessment. I good standing position while now you'd have to but the thing is that's one one of those things where you know. I would have to see it. Whenever somebody comes up with something like that i i always have to ask. How'd you come up with that. Because <hes> you know i mentioned simpsons. The simpsons laws earlier in this and the most famous simpson's law aw is if i can't show you the math it's just my opinion okay and basically that goes back to that goes back to fort bragg because i would complain about something that was is in the curriculum and the common refrain was will. There's just your opinion all okay okay. I see let's go all right so the thing is that's why became game. That's why i became self taught in statistical theory though that i i wouldn't lose arguments anymore though isn't it. It's not a question of well. This is in my opinion. It's like if you wanna prove me wrong. You gotta start with two plus two dozen equal four okay and then you know.

"Exactly and the thing is it's like you know there's reason for and <hes> there was one of the things that one of the things that prompted that there was <hes>. Let's it's just say the service hit. The service shall remain nameless but basically there was a photograph taken from the back of you know the n._c._o. I say or noncommissioned commissioned officer in charge of a military sniper school and the guy was like laid out flat on the ground and he had his legs pressed together and his <hes> his toes repressed together. I mean it was like the weirdest brown opposite now and there were like yeah you know and this is sergeant so-and-so's unique take on the position and it was just like you know you know one of the reasons for the prone our own position that i teach being the way it is is there's there's body mechanics that make it you know make it a lot more stable able possession and when you're doing stuff like that it's like i i just don't see any sense senate right so it kind of going down the point because this has been around for a long time you know in the run-up to this we had a couple of email exchanges and and one of the things you said which <hes> you know it was right at my elliott. Impeach might years ears up was that you think that it's the responsibility of every american to learn marksmanship now. I'm kind of learn more about why where that came from. You know i i'm not going to get into the whole <hes> you know militia national guard thing but you know you know basically in article two of the constitution it you you know it. Is you know at the founding of the country. You know basically every male from this year from this age. This age was as a member of the militia whether he wanted to be or not and <hes> you know and that's why the the president is the <hes> <hes> commander in chief of the army the navy and and you know it's an old school idea. I'm a firm believer that you know part of the you know part of the culture of the united states. Is you know i it's based on it. It is based on firearm. Firearms is how we won on our freedom from england and firearms or how we've defended our country in the past and we've <hes> you know we've been forced. I you know foreign policy and when you look at it the <hes> the military i used to be you know prior prior to the national security act of nineteen forty seven the original strategy was you you know we weren't supposed to have a you know the founding fathers were against standing armies right because you know they they they call it the new since since they cost a lot of money <hes> you know just a you know you pay them and feed them clothe. 'em and house them and train them so the thing is says. It's like you had a you know. Essentially you had a an army that consisted of just you know essentially padres you know it was just a skeleton of the much larger army until war was declared and then for any for any contingencies. You had a standing a u._s. Marine corps that was you know when you look at it. That was one of the reasons why the army is always trying to <hes> you know especially after world war two they were always trying to come up with faster ways to train people in rifle marksmanship and you would see the marine corps persisting in using you know known distance position shooting as the basis for <hes> you know their their record fire for the longest time because they were essentially shrank to create a core of small arms experts. You know one of the functions of the n._r._a. Was to have these service rifle matches so that you know now on you know on the weekends and you know a couple of times throughout the year you know joe tax payer would be able to <hes> you know take his rifle shoe some of the rust out of the barrel and he would develop basic rifle marksmanship skills. Do you think that's kinda fallen to to the offshore sure but you still see the civilian marksmanship pro rats. That's one of the functions of the civilian marksmanship program graham. Where hey you know you know meet these criteria we're going to we're going to make available to you an m one guarant- you know you can you can go ahead and and train on this. One of the big debates was that went on after world war two in the truman administration. When was this thing called universal military training which <hes> i mean if if you wanted to give half of the politicians in office now a heart attack attack you should just bring up universal universal military training again because this was this was like <hes> rifle marksmanship instruction was supposed to a start in highschool. That'd be people heart attack these days. I mean just to you know just to provide provide a capability that you you hope he's never used to provide for the common defense so you know basically you know we're still you know. People were still required to register for selective service. There's a possibility that you know oh. Thanks get bad enough that you know people begin to get drafted again or called up again and the thing is they're just like the problem that the police are are facing. You know it turns out that <hes> when you need people down range fast there just isn't enough try time to give them all of the training that they need. <hes> you know basically <hes> i mean fortunately fortunately rifle. Marksmanship in the army has been <hes>. You know i it it. It's been expanded again but i have <hes>. I have no doubt that <hes> that's that's going to go the way of the dodo eventually because you just don't have have you just don't have the culture for it <hes> it's it's almost like you don't have the stomach for it in the army which i realize it's a weird thing to say but <hes> it's it's a problem. It's a problem that goes trust me. It's a problem that goes back to the eighteen hundreds right now. One of the things you mentioned was that you know the idea was that every citizen would be ready so that if you got drafted you probably if you've participated in competition when you had that that at least that basic requisite skill right but then but then how does that go today. I feel like if i'm being honest about kind of modern modern gun culture is a lot of people kinda focused so much on what's in your safe. If you even have a safe these days that people neglect things like how's your physical fitness doing doing part of the book as well. You know i wrote the original tax. I i got turned down. I got turned down by my first choice. <hes> the people have hallowed impress. <hes> were nice enough to <hes> <hes> publish the book unfortunately they made a number of editorial changes that i didn't agree with you know first of all the title the title was never supposed to be sniper craft because that's the that's the registered trademark of sniper kraft inc needed which is owned by department fortunately he was he was kind enough to allow me to use the sniper craft trademark. You know basically it was just like wow you know. We can't <hes> <hes> we don't publish stuff with basic level. So you know you gotta gotta. Call it advanced training. It's like dude. I mean i'm basically going hey. This is a rifle okay. The bullet comes out of the sand. I mean how advanced do you think that is so <hes> pollen impressed frescoes outta. They go out of business a while back. You know i've got the i've got the manuscript you know they were. They were nice enough to give me the <hes> the <hes> the p._d._f. Files in order to print more so i found this <unk> publisher called loose-leaf law publishing pushing fantastic group of people they do <hes> they primarily do <hes> books or police got a really smart more editor so i was i was working with <hes> <hes> i was working with carrie falco and <hes> really really nice woman and one of the benefits that was is i had to i had to ask a question about something in the tax and i had to explain waved her and she had no background in firearm so that was actually one of the more useful on things that that developed from this this process so it's a while going through the mid so going through the manuscript while going through the pal version i found out that they had introduced three iphones that weren't in the original manuscript so i was i was kind of glad i was able to fix those but it was one of these deals where the vice president of loose leaf <hes> mary law-free she <hes> she basically said look you know we don't want to just reprint this this book would you be interested in doing an updated version of it and it was like that was that was music in my ear okay because that was exactly what i wanted to do because in the intervening years it's always wanted these things where you know. I kind of wish that included this and boy. I wish i had gotten rid of this so i had the opportunity to do that and one of the things that i added was the section that you like so much on the sniper. Functional fitness test mel the story of that <hes> if <hes> if you you ever see a <hes> you ever see a sniper craft class action one of the things that one of the things deryck insist upon is that you know this is a very physical job because you're carrying all this gear. You're trying to climb <unk> over a chain link fence and you know passing stuff over it. You're running up flights of stairs to get to a particular floor and tom on so very physical job several years ago <hes> <unk> i get this <hes> this phone call from derrick. You just taught a class. Basically he had guys that were <hes> <hes> you couldn't perform the courses of fire that required them to run on you know to do to run and do push ups before they before they fire the shot because when you're getting ready to shoot somebody for real you know your your heart is racing and you know you're short abreast and it all comes down to a measure of what physical capacity past the the you have left bring to the job so he goes. I wanna come up with a p._t. Test i wanna i wanna give a p._t. Test in the school so <hes> we put our heads together and over a period of several months we came up with the <hes> the sniper functional fitness tests so we set this up and <hes> when we came up with the score when we came up with a scoring system <hes> we we had like like <hes> three classes that we administered the test to and we just told everybody do the best you camp and from there i i took all those numbers and <hes> i i did a <hes> basic <unk> analysis of it and <hes> if there's any stat statisticians in the office i came up with the z. score or you know for the data and i was able to convert everything in two points on a on a chart.

"Yesterday got his start. As a member of the army special forces groups he taught his first sniper school course in nineteen eighty-five in his first law enforcement course in nineteen eighty six he he spent five years teaching sniper to special forces troops that special warfare center at fort bragg north carolina three years at charlie company germany as a team sniper and ultimately as the company master sniper and two years as chief instructor of the tenth special forces group sniper committee at fort devons massachusetts while at fort devons he trained police snipers in new new york and ohio as part of project northstar since his retirement from the army in nineteen ninety four. He's continued to train police military snipers around the country. He's the author author of the snipers notebook which is on the recommended reading list of the twenty seventeen edition of army sniper manual and also contributed chapters to the wind book by linda miller and keith cunningham as well as american sniper associations sniper operations in training manual. He most recently published another book the foundation snipe promotion which i reviewed here at the everyday marksman on the show everybody welcome john simpson john. Welcome well. Thank you very much. It's very nice nice by we have you know kind of the first thing i'd like to ask is tell us a bit more about your background kind of how you got from a starving starting off in special forces sniper to all the book all the writing. You've doing everything everything in the background that people might not know about you. Don't mind the boring details. <hes> i enlisted in the army in seventy seven which was <hes> <hes> and i enlisted in special forces which is quite a gut check because at that time there was talk in the carter administration about disbanding special forces so <hes> as we were going through training there was a whole bunch of us that figured we were going to wind up as the most highly qualified privates in the eighty second airborne division but fortunately that didn't come to pass so i wound up going to fort devons and originally started out as a <hes> special forces light weapons <hes> leader later. I joined s. f. s._f. Wasn't cool so <hes> it was. It was really a backwater. We didn't have any money. We didn't have very many resources sources. This is going to make sense later but one of the advantages i had four devon's massachusetts was that i found out that right right down. I ninety in springfield massachusetts was the smith and wesson factory and they had opened up what they called the spit. The western academy which is primarily for training police officers now at that time <hes> weapons guys and especially light weapons guys were were low man on the totem pole and there was like no advanced training. If you were demolitions there was an advanced class. If you're you're a medic. There was an event you know so on what i wound up doing was is <hes> i i took three weeks. Leave and i paid the to wish in only self and he <hes> i went to springfield massachusetts to the smith and wesson academy and i enrolled in their their firearms instructor program graham which was there you know primarily their firearms instructor program completely changed. My life because here was a way of looking at things. You just didn't see in the military so basically like i <hes> i graduated their program and i liked what i saw. Here was a group of people that if you know you train somebody wrong in and using a handgun they go out on the street. They wound up getting shot and you find out about it immediately so it was it was a big period of change in law enforcement so that gave me a gave me a really different approach to <hes> <hes> <hes> to to looking at the job of training people in weapons that i tried to bring back to the army because you have to understand it at this period of time time when i say we didn't have much money i mean it. Was you know basically marksman shia what they called marksmanship training. Was you know you would go to the range every year a year whether you needed to or not for one day and you would like get nine rows two zero and forty rounds to record fire. It was actually much later that i i learned the best way to express what was wrong with that and that was from my friend and colleague derek bartlett because <hes> his his opinion on you know counting record fire is training is <hes> you don't take geography of you. Don't take geometry three test to learn geometry and you you know so you don't fire a record fire to learn marksmanship so so fast forward a number of years <hes> wind up you know breaking my femur in a jeep accident. I was going from one desk job to another and they had me me. They had me running the group message center in headquarters company which is as bad as it south. You know when i re enlisted i it's like i had to get out of there and i transferred to the special warfare center at fort bragg north carolina which is the big schoolhouse for special forces so they're trying to you know put me into a job and you know one of the one of the biggest problems that we have in the culture of the army is that a lot of the instructors basically instructors are looked down on as people that weren't smart enough enough to get out of an instructor assignment whereas what i've noticed in you know organizations like the marine corps. We're gonna see if you're good enough to be instructor to train the next generation of people coming up though it's yeah i'm curious if you don't mind i have a question on that because i was i was an air force instructor in a different career field but <hes> so that's interesting is still the case today <hes> the guys that are most familiar with are the instructors at the <hes> the army meet sniper school at fort benning georgia and i gotta tell ya from everything that i've seen with those guys <hes> those guys are good what they do. They want to be there and they're you know i mean they're. They're constantly trying to do their jobs. Better right right. You know your students have to be able to trust their training and <hes> you know from what from the guys that i have from the guys that i've worked with at or banning <hes> <hes> they <hes> they make that a reality okay. That's really awesome to hear so what kind of follow up question had in there it was to make sure we have definitions right i. He said you were light. Weapons so for guys who don't know military jargon kind of what does that mean <hes> light weapons the weapons leader when i went through everybody went through the same weapons opens course it was <hes> <hes> so in in seventy eight when i went through the cue for the special forces qualification course or q course we had four weeks as a phase one at camp mccall we had <hes> for my m._o._s. We had eight weeks of what was called. Emma west training and and you had four weeks of what was called phase three which was you're a guerrilla warfare. Training phase one was phase one was <hes> <hes> survival and <hes> patrolling and a lot of navigation and then finished up with a patrol field training exercise okay and then <hes> a lot for weapons that was eight weeks of mostly classroom where we we we covered everything from <hes> pistols from all around the world and so we would go pistols submachine guns <hes> rifles automatic rifles light machine guns heavy machine guns and <hes> and so on and then for the heavy weapons portion that was everything that was either a large-calibre direct fire weapon or an indirect fire weapon so that was <hes> heavy weapons were recoilless rifles rocket launchers mortars for sixty millimeter meter eighty one millimeter and four point two and then we learned the ford observer procedures and fire direction center procedures okay and <hes> and there was a lot of <hes> like i said i mean there were there was a lot of classroom. I mean just a whole lot of tests. I mean they had <hes> enlight weapons. They had one where <hes> one of the one of the final tests that you had to do was called the scramble which they still do today and what they would do is they the instructors disassemble three weapons and dump them into <hes> on in front of each student and then in a certain amount of time time they had to reassemble separate and reassemble three operating weapons out of that was always the same weapons or is kind of at the instructors instructors choice. It depended on how the instructors were with the class. Okay i mean if they like you. It would be something like the car being them. Nineteen seventy-one pistol and <hes> am fourteen if they didn't like you they would give you something like aac one of the ones that they will always include would be the trigger group from a browning automatic rifle because that that has like a bazillion parts in it. It was quite a challenge. I it was just amazing for for something that works so well in world war two <hes> when we did the class on the browning automatic automatic rifle it was just like <hes> the class leader stood up in class and told the instructor he says you know when david david david slew goliath he just did it with a rock and a piece of string and john browning took like you know ninety five parts to launch a bullet down range uh okay so yeah and then when you get you you finish all that and you get to face three and you that's that's when you get into guerrilla warfare fair and <hes> winning and things like that so i'm going to kind of pivot to talking about the book so i ended the latest book the foundations a sniper marksmanship is not <hes>. It's like a it's updated version of previous book that you harassment underway. I had to print with paladin private so you put this out in the intro but for the audience can what was the the impetus to to write this okay so <hes> for going on twenty years now. I've been fortunate enough to be affiliated with a a training company called sniper craft and the guy in charge of it. Derek bartlett is one of the central figures in police sniping in this country. If not the world okay it turned out that when we finally met at a we met at a training conference that we both speaking at in nineteen ninety eight and it it was one of these things where you know we both heard about each other but we'd never met and it so happened that we were coming in <hes> we <hes> we arrived at the airport four at the same time it was like hey you know you want to grab something to eat and we got to talking and found out that <hes> you know we we actually had <hes> <hes> a great deal in common. We just had different ways of getting their sniper. Craft runs police sniper classes all around the country derek has the stable of adjunct instructors where if he's operating in a certain part of the country he goes there is the primary and then <hes> you know he he calls up one of us so over the years i got to i got to train a number of police snipers and one of the things that i unnoticed was the approach to training. You know people ask people. Ask me all the time what's the difference between military and police sniper and the issue issue is like you in-depth go into ear but one of the things that stood out for me was is that the training strategies for each each co backwards when i was working as a military sniper instructor every student is.

Holly, Romany and Fitzsimmons. Clemson after its best drive of the night six place. Sixty five yards has taken the lead back twenty one to sixteen quickly. Holly Rowe on the Clemson sideline. Pulling the college football semifinal last year against Alabama. Clemson running back. Travis E T N was largely ineffective in their exit meeting. In January is offense coordinator said, hey, man. You faded on me the season he has gone back stronger. He's worked out more in the weight room. And you could see if he moved out pile of about six Alabama Ben down the field. He is definitely in great shape. Using that leg. Drive to score there at the single season rushing record for Clemson this year now over sixteen hundred yards for the season one of the free finalists Philadelphia. Walker award is the best running back in the country and what the job and Taylor. Wisconsin. Here's the kickoff from left to right, BT Potter bombs. Another one. Grabbed the back of the end zone landed about eight yards deep over the head of Josh Jacobs. So here comes Alabama back on offense. And what a start for to Tonga Loa. He threw. Early in the game for the first touchdown of this game by either team the for the game. Now, he's twelve out of fourteen for one fifty three two touchdowns and the interception and this Clemson pass rush. But it's been so outstanding this year. Fifty two sacks not able to get close to him right now. He's throwing on rhythm and starts out of the shotgun. With Josh Jacobs on his right? A hand off to take up the nice putt at the twenty seven yard line. A tackle made by Albert Huggins Nolan Turner the safety side of the former Alabama player, Kevin Turner. He made the tackle though. I'd rather whiffed on the tackle Huggins made it. I think right now the Alabama offensive line is controlling this front. Seven of Clemson as good as they are so far in the ball game. Second down and three Alabama. Moving from right to left ball near hash. Mark tongo. Buy low empty backfield. Five receivers free to the right now. Motioning do the right? Josh Jagan stack into the backfield. He takes a hand off on the right hip condo by Loa and runs left to yard short of the first down Nolan Turner up there again from his safety spot. Leland Furlan Christian Wilkins, there looks like they've gone to charter instead of us after myu got beaten the coverage against Judy on the big play in the first quarter for Alabama quick snap on third down in one hand off the Josh Jacobs here. It doesn't look like he got it needed. The thirty five yard line in the official headlines linesman trips Sutter from the near sideline Margate about a length of a football short. What will dick Sabin do on four inches Xavier? Thomas made the tackle the true freshman only tried to snap it quickly. But they they didn't rule Clemson Xavier Thomas is extremely explosive off the line of scrimmage relating the offense on the field. Both teams are substituting. Ten minutes to go the first half plus twenty one Alabama sixteen the tide lining up. Zip to go for it on fourth and inches. Direct staff to shake wind up on the wildcat. Again. He has the first down running up right guard. Got it to yards despair out to the thirty seven yard line where JD Davis linebacker tackle Bork wants them.

Caroline said from business Waymo is the first company and California allow to test robot cars on public roads with no human driver behind the steering wheel. It said Tuesday, the California Department of motor vehicles has given way. Mo a permit for up to forty fully autonomous cars to drive both day and night on city streets rural highways and highways with posted speeds up to sixty five miles per hour. The company which is the self-driving unit of Google parent. Alphabet did not say how soon the vehicles might roll Waymo like most companies testing self-driving cars has long put backup drivers and engineers in the front seats vehicles for safety purposes and to gather data on the car's performance the permit. It has obtained is the first of its kind in the state our vehicles can safely handle fog and light rain. And testing those conditions is included in our permit. Waymo said in a blog post, we will gradually begin driverless testing on city streets in a limited territory and over time expand the area that we drive in as we gain confidence and experience the company's Chrysler Pacifica, white minivans will ditch drivers initially starting around. It's Mountain View headquarters and neighboring Sunnyvale Los Altos. Those outposts hills and Palo Alto Waymo employee's will still be aboard to start just not in the driver's seat. Eventually the company will offer rides to the public as it does in Arizona before expanding beyond those cities in Santa Clara county Waymo will follow the DMV requirements to notify new communities and submit a request to the DMV way moment is the progenitor of the worldwide race to develop autonomous cars after pioneering the field with a secretive moonshot project had Google that began in two thousand nine its success convinced others that atonomy was feasible in the near future. After prompting automakers technology companies and startups to pour billions of dollars into what they believe will be revolution. As transformative has the invention of the car itself. Waymo has been testing it driving fleet now roughly one hundred vehicles in California for years, but like the sixty other self-driving companies in California, it is had drivers ready to take control if something went wrong nationwide. It tests about six hundred cars in twenty five cities in February the California DMV finalized regulations for California cars to operate. Without drivers Waymo applied for a permit to do. So in April, California has been working toward this milestone for several years, and we will continue to keep the public safety in mind as this technology evolves. Said DNB director Jean Shamoto in a statement. However, some consumer advocates cautioned that they think robot cars aren't ready for public roads and threatens safety that argument gained credence with some high profile accidents, including. Luding one in Arizona in March. When an Uber self driving car struck and killed a pedestrian even though it detected her in the roadway ahead. The cars backup driver was watching a video. Although drivers are supposed to remain alert. The DMV is simply trusting Waymo without any real verification, and is putting our safety at risk said John Simpson privacy and technology director of consumer watchdog in a statement, he referred to drive list cars as a Kintu playing a video game. Except lives will be at stake. Some states such as Zona where Waymo has been testing truly a Thomas cars for over a year already allow no driver cars until now California only allowed them on private test tracks which as go meant him station in concord and the former castle airbase in Mercer county where Waymo tests to forego human drivers, the DMV requires companies to provide insurance or a bond of five million dollars and to self certified that they're autonomous cars can navigate roads and have been tested in the planned area. Of operations the cars must comply with all federal safety regulations. For now, that means robot cars must have steering wheels brake pedals and other manual controls. As the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not yet issued waivers for cars to omit manual controls. Among other California requirements companies must have remote operators who can communicate with passengers and send the cars recommendations for how to proceed if the robots get stumped. Because of transmission delays, operators do not actually drive the cars remotely companies also must have a plan for interacting with law enforcement Waymo released its plan this month, it involves education for first responders and the ability for them to easily contact twenty four seven Waymo phone support way. Most permit allows the driverless cars to give rights only to employees and non paying members of the public. The DMV has a separate permit system for offering paid no driver rise in the Phoenix area. Waymo gives rides to about four hundred households. Is that use an app to summon? It's robot cars for their everyday trips to school, work nights out, etc. Most still operate with backup drivers help shape. The future of self driving cars says Waymo 's website forever since to apply as early writers. The company says Amazon is where it will. I offer a commercial robot taxi service, the company plans, a similar early writer program in California for people who live in its planned service area. But hasn't yet said when that will start.
