Sports Marketing Podcasts Opportunities With Learfield IMG College CMO Jennifer Davis
"Do you find that in sports media. I know in radio. There's individual shows that are around one sports or at least a local market. You get a local sports channel. They're gonna talk about the bears and the giants and the cardinals. and the forty niners. And maybe the raiders. Even though they're in vegas they kind of bounce around from individual topic but with podcasting feeds you can be more verticalised. You can just have one specific show. I've seen this on the professional level where there is a warrior show sponsored by the athletic core nbc. But i haven't seen it in the collegiate level where there is the cal bears basketball show by anybody other than the cal athletic program. Maybe it's just because cal. Flex aren't as popular as texas in alabama and florida and some of the other major programs. But are you seeing sort of vertical is shows that are individual sports or school specific. I think there's a huge opportunity there and actually more nuance than what you think. Because college sports people tend to be fans of whatever that our team is playing. Even if they don't know the rules of the game like would we started doing e. sports at the college level. I saw some great tweets from college. Sports fans die hard like tennessee football fans. They're like my team is doing well and east sports. I don't know what that is. But i'm a tennessee band so go volunteers and i think there is as you said kind of across sport affinity but then there are some programs and often it could be the revenue generating sports football basketball but it also could be some of the olympic sports where the fans a lot has been written recently about the fans being very fluid in that. They don't get a lot of game day or meet day content because of the nature of the sport there van said they are used to looking for nontraditional content to keep up with what's happening in gymnastics or field hockey or swimming or rowing. So i think there's opportunity to do exactly what you are talking about in especially because of that community element. I think we talked about that. A couple of episodes ago is that. There's nothing like that college community. College community can be rallied around a specific type. And i think you're onto

He was doing an interview courtesy of CBS and Derek Carr says he will try hard to recruit Davante Adams to Las Vegas. I've learned in this in this business, you never shut the door on anything, you know, I know that he's obviously the best receiver, you know, everyone said one of the best is the best receiver in the NFL. You know, the guy is unbelievable as Been one of my best friends since we were in college together. I love the guy. I would always welcome to play with him again. I think it would have liked some things in both of us that people haven't seen yet. You know, and, uh and I'm always open to that and I will be recruiting very hard.

I always love how if a general manager for president of football operations said that it would be tampering, a player says that I am no big deal whatsoever that he's going to be recruiting. De Monte and but I guess this cop out there or is opt out. There is all I said if that opportunity does present itself.

The video has racked up over one hundred. Twenty eight thousand likes on tick tock And it went viral on twitter. According to laurenz. And i'm going to quote here. Some tweets suggests that black raiders on tiktok had seemingly agreed not to choreograph a dance to the song which would force non black users to come up with dances on their own and prove how essential black raiders are to the platform in a later. Tiktok eric. the person who promoted this video sad black folks have always had to galvanize and riot and protest to get their voices heard that same dynamic is displayed on tiktok. Said we're being forced to collectively protest a user deja on twitter Said that black creators are telling each other to not make a dance to the new megan the samsung to prove they are the backbone of the app another quote.

That should all translate to something. How do we get real money. Power and proper compensation reserve and the tweet from taylor today to frame this as an issue around dance credits misses the point. It's about so much more and speaks to broader issues of labor in the creator economy. We are being exploited. And that's a core issue. Black folks have always had in terms of labor. Eric said

Las Vegas Raiders Draft Alex Leatherwood
"It's heidi here with sam gordon and we're gonna get into what happened. Here with the raiders at number seventeen in the nfl draft. Sam alex leatherwood offensive linemen from alabama selected. Seventeen for the. Las vegas raiders. What was your initial reaction. Because i know heidi first and foremost great to be here. I had a great time in cleveland. So far it's been a heck of an experience. Glad you're here With said In terms of your question definitely surprised right definitely surprised Not surprising right tackle. i Continued to voice leading up to the draft. I thought right tackle away to go was an obvious. Need in the offense of line of ministry of this team despite its it's consistent struggles. Last year's the offensive line was a pretty reliable unit and lot of turnover tram. Browns gone just going to be some reshuffling move out gave jackson you move out and you knew there was going to have to be some adjustments made and there was a glaring hole the right tackle and they went with right tackle so i they feel the need but just now player. I thought they'd fill that need with and you look at how the board was shaking out. Thought christian dare saw. I was going to be big especially considering what his grade was. And and and where. The raiders were picking. He wasn't now that said just because alex leatherwood is a surprise and we didn't expect him to be there doesn't mean he won't be a good player but it feels like more often than not the raiders. Under jon gruden. Mike mayock have reached for players that they could have gotten later and are maximizing the value of their first round picks damon are net in twenty twenty was a good example. That and even cleveland farrell. Who's a very good player by the way in the top five and twenty nineteen so a couple so with that in mind. I think alex leatherwood at trend. But the jury's still out on how good he's going to be i think he has a lot of potential beauge player was an all american big-time film comes from a big time program and he's gonna get his opportunity to prove mike. Megan jon gruden ryan look. I want to be optimistic about this. But i think there were other guys that were on the board. That had a lot of potential. And the raiders did go out here and they went out on a limb

Raiders make surprise pick in latest Mel Kiper Jr. mock draft
"Mock draft three point. Oh is available on. Espn plus right. Now and here. We go no surprise at the top. Trevor lawrence has been there and we'll be there for the moment and started to the moment. That pig is made. He's going jacksonville. And that's not going to change at number. Two mel projects the jets to stay put and select quarterback zach wilson who would be the team's highest drafted quarterback since they took joe nemeth thousand nine hundred sixty five at number three. We have a trade that panthers would move up from number eight to select justin fields from ohio state carolina getting its quarterback of the future miami. Picking up more prime picks. And the falcons make it four for four to begin the draft selecting their quarterback of the future trae lanes. Should it go this way. It would be the first time ever that quarterbacks go with each of the first four picks in the draft. We take a look at the rest of mel's top ten. After the four consecutive quarterbacks we see some other names you will get to know. Kyle pitch superstar tight end. More pass catchers jamarcus devante smith jail waddell notably absent on this screen. Max jones the fifth quarterback in this first round the star from alabama who mel projects. Going number fifteen to the new england patriots and let's start there because mel we spoke about this the last time you broke this down for us. You had max jones going considerably higher namely number eight overall. Why do you see this drop. Greenwich carolina eight with matt rule had max jones at the senior bowl practices where he was exceptional right. So you figure carolina's stuck at eight. They would look at mack. Jones new england and fifteen is built. Bellichik nick sabin connection and obviously looking at a quarterback to get back to. Maybe the tom brady days. Okay get your that type of quarterback which is what mack jones is his style and the way he goes about his business as a pocket passer so once carolina in my mach three point. Zero was moving up to get justin field. Mack jones next opportunity to come off. The board for me would be new england at fifteen.
Did Washington Do Enough to Push Dallas in the NFC?
"Did washington football teams teamers and the giants do enough to push dallas in the nfc. So i left philly out. I don't yeah. I just don't i am found anyone who really thinks they're going to be competitive. I mean let's wait and see got jalen whatever. But that's a team that they're not really fun to talk about. Because their free agency considered like stripping you know but i mean they did sign at harris for like nothing which is probably better sightings but what you have in jalen also you serianni. Yes hundred percent but washington in york both very active and did interesting. Things i think are worth discussing because dallas after the dak prescott deal was finally done. They've kind of made a few moves around the margins adding kia neil. Getting tied as kind of swing. Tackle still have question marks at adra sure and coroner but washington like i think they might have had my favorite free agency or at least the one that i'm most excited to see. I don't know payoff on the field. So just to recap. They signed the aforementioned ryan fitzpatrick one year. Ten million dollars. They tag branch eff. Who's there Pro bowler guard. They signed william jackson from the bengals. Cornerback three years. Forty two million dollars and then added panthers wide receiver. Curtis samuel for three years thirty four point five million dollars so just starting like let's start here. Do you agree with me like do you. Do you like what they did. And do you think it makes them an actual competitor in the division. A really like what. Washington did You know. I think among the guys among the quarterback that they could get because not only were they never in it for russell wilson or or wherever really going to be competitive for shawn watson You had to start looking okay. We'll what's realistic. And it's the ryan fitzpatrick coming off his best his career. It's an andy dalton and whereas that really gonna lead you I think that there was a lot of interest in marcus. Mariota he still is not able to sign with another team because the raiders are still holding him hostage But so. I like the quarterback. Move because you're essentially saying let's build up the team the and let's have the strongest team possible around the quarterback position where we don't sell out just because we have to for that position free agency. Maybe they make a move at the draft for a guy that they have their eye on. Or maybe they just say let's. Let's keep the boat floating this year and let's make our move Next free agency. So i thought that they probably overpaid by million or two on curtis samuel. But they wanted him And and ron rivera really likes them. Obviously william jackson an incredible deal You look around and you need another pass rusher and they can they can probably keep ryan kerrigan as a third down specialist if he comes down off his number end so you know he's he's still doing that. He's gonna get paid a whole lot of money. I'm not sure that that money is really out there especially at this point in free agency so they didn't want to mortgage their future for for quarterback right. Now they wanted to keep the boat afloat. I that and so. I like what they have done. Specially on evens. Then when you consider the the sort of offense and the pre-snap that they can have with all those offensive playmakers. Now that curtis annuals there with terry corn. I really like with done.
Top 10 players signed by Patriots
"Talk about the Patriots. The the Patriots grabbed everybody's attention by making move after move after move after move. Like we're watching it over agency going off. How many people are going to bring in its kind of unbelievable how many starters they've added? And so I count they added ten players that I think are very very significant to their team next year. In fact, I would say pretty clearly the Patriots are back and a lot of people saw this coming, you know, but they are going to be a force in the NFL next year here is my list my nerdy list of the ten players the top players. They added that are very significant to their roster next year. The first two are massive. It will reshape the entire Patriots offense. They added two tight ends Johnny Smith and Ed Hunter Henry. To Johnny Smith signed from Tennessee. He signed a four year deal worth up to fifty million dollars. That's Thirty one point two five million dollars guaranteed and he's only twenty-four years old. So that's Monday. That's a really gigantic Marquis franchise player. He cited the reason why it came to New England is cuz he loves Bill Belichick. He's got great respect for him. And I want to point out of all the everybody I'm about to talk about these shows to be in New England Bill Belichick got his kind of guys who sought out New England wanted to be there and wanted to work hard and win a Superbowl. I think it matters. It's very very exciting. These are not with Josh Gordon's or what's the other example Phillip Dorsett who they made a move for and they're not really like that. You think they fit they don't work out know. These are guys who all chose to be in New England who wanted to win a Superbowl. I really want to win a Superbowl. These guys went out of their way to be New England now the other tight and they brought in With twenty-six-year-old tight end Hunter Henry from the LA Chargers got a three-year deal twenty-five million dollars guaranteed. It's worth up to thirty seven point five million dollars total if he meets all those incentives. They also added two wide receivers the Patriots brought in Nelson agholor to a you got a two year twenty six million dollar contract East twelve years old. Now a lot of people do not like this move and I I get it Nelson agholor is not the most flashy player in the NFL but I think if it's very well with Cam Newton, he's good at he's not going up and getting the ball. He's got good hands did some stuff of the Raiders that I think deserves your attention go watch what he did with the Raiders and I just I'm like, huh a lot of good plays. Okay. I understand. I see the potential Bill Belichick and the Patriots would see and Nelson agholor go will give the guy a good contract, especially considering the Patriots have like our desolate at wide receiver. They need help. They got home. Who is awesome but he can't do everything by himself from the slot. They have n'keal Harry who n'keal Harry. I I think he's going to pop. I think he's going to progress and keep getting better. But she's not a number one right now. So on top of the page where it's also added Kendrick Bourne guy from my local area actually went to Eastern Washington University 25 years old. He's coming from the San Francisco 49ers. He got a three year deal worth twenty two point five million dollars. Now another thing the Patriots did they also added they signed Center Ted carriages and they traded for tackle Trent Brown. So this is the new Patriots offense right now. They've receivers Nelson agholor, Julian Edelman Kendrick born and kill hair is its own nuclear Aguilera. I'm doing my best. It's a hard game to say. They also have Sony Michelle running backs for any receivers Sony Michelle at running back and improved offensive line. Cam Newton at quarterback who I get why people doubt Cam? He's a former NFL MVP and with when you put cams Talent with a lot of weapons including two outstanding tight ends Hunter Henry Smith, right man. I'll tell you what I look at the Patriots offense and think two things immediately number one. Everything is going to run through their brand new Titans. Their entire offense now is probably going to drive down the seams of the field right up the middle. They're going to use our tents heavily lot of play-action again. I am scheme wise things will look a lot like the page words did back in the day when they had drunk and Aaron Hernandez together to start tight ends. Now number two. I feel very very confident with Cam Newton as the Patriots quarterback and it surprised me but I want to remind you that two years ago. Tom Brady was the page word starting quarterback and did basically nothing and the reason was there were no weapons there. He kept running into the same brick wall. His receivers weren't good enough. So, how can I think you and I would both agree. I like Cam Newton Tom Brady's a better quarterback than Cam Newton. So my point is if Tom Brady couldn't make it work with New England's roster. How was Cam Newton supposed to succeed? He was set up to fail will now Cam Newton's being given weapons is being set up to do. Well, I'm excited man. He's a former NFL MVP, he's hungry. I I personally believe Cam Newton's going to have an awesome year and it really is going to make extended one-year deal with like it was like three and a half million dollars with a bunch of incentives. I honestly think we're gonna look back at his contract at the end of next year and go. Can you believe the deal they got on Camden he played so well for no money. I really think he's he's a guy who can didn't play well enough wage. Last year to earn a new gigantic contract. So he's going to have to show what he can do this year and maybe earn more money next year but I think cam is poised to do very very well and make a lot of money and win a lot of games in New England
Free Agency 2021: Biggest Winners and Losers From Day One
"Who's the biggest winner from day. One the biggest winner from day one already told you it was. It was a my intro. You're listening great question. Jonnu smith out. It's cam newton. Well that depends kenyans a starter for sixteen games. That's right that's true. It's yeah okay. Potentially find jonah smith. Donald smith big contract with the patriots They invest heavily in him. You like this for him i do. I think you know Obviously the quarterback is the concern. But this is the scenario especially with the move that they made that we look for in fantasy as tight end could be the leader of the pack in terms of targets and opportunities and so look cam was not good in twenty twenty. If cam does start sixteen games in two thousand twenty. One greg olsen. During a five year stretch was pretty awesome of the top tier tight ends of the guys that we did. We talk about what he was in the next group you know. And so from twenty two thousand twenty sixteen. Greg olsen averaged a hundred eighteen targets a season seventy seven catches Decide one thousand yards and five times. Johnny could do that. One season estimate put them right around a top five tight end. Greg olsen was great and not only was he great but we also saw from cam newton in that stretch that he could give you greg olsen. Who could finish as a top eight tight in five straight seasons and give you a number to wide receiver in four of those five seasons three or four of those five seasons whether it was. Steve smith or kelvin. Benjamin and even ted ginn one year. So that's interesting. I'll afforded talking about that on the show tomorrow on the tuesday morning show and then of course we'll have a whole bunch of more news items to react to. Hopefully we'll get some kenny golladay news at some point on tuesday or maybe it'll happen later on monday night as record this at about nine fifteen eastern. Who's the biggest loser from day. One the biggest loser from day one on asking these questions before. I told you that we were starting with these egypt's before the show The biggest guys they ryan tannehill johnny smith and Us down smith and corey davis They're going to have to struggle to replace those guys Davis probably more. So the jonah just from the standpoint of what he was last year with his production number two receiver sixty five catches nine hundred plus yards and five touchdowns. So we'll see what they do in in in that in that regard but i think Tannehill you know. I had him as the number eleven quarterback. I dropped in the thirteen after today. Just because i think it was close between in my mind. Joe burrow and tom brady put them behind both those guys. Okay how 'bout jameis winston ryan tannehill right now. It's soom jameis winston as the starter. I still go. i think it'd be messy. You know. I can't situation we're taking those not blaming So i was hoping james would go someplace else and tastes hill. Would still be the guy with maybe a rookie or somebody. Young that they could groom continued. Just gonna to get you know too much of the mill package of james as the starter and if as milton starter. Davis is gonna play very much so it just feels like it be messy situation oil. Who do you like better. Corey davis with the jets nelson agholor with the patriots. I think adler is going to be bad. I don't trust the situation. You know i mean he. He had so many big. Plays for the raiders last year and he was so good for derek carr but he did that on eighty two targets. I don't think he gets eighty two targets with the patriots. He's going to do the same thing. So with what cam does running the ball with what jonah smith brings to the table with. What the rest of the receiving corps will look like if julian edelman on the team if he's healthy Nagla is going to be A guy that's not on many fantasy rosters middle of the season whereas corey davis could be the best receiver for the jets. I don't know if that's going to be the case. But i would take davis by far over niagara.
Seattle Seahawks Today: Latest Rumors On A Russell Wilson Trade
"Originally or a few a few weeks ago russell. Wilson's camp released some information that he was unhappy in seattle. They have not formally requested a trade but it seems like the relationship has some conflict there. he has a no trade clause in his contract. There were specific exemptions from four. Team's the cowboys. The saints the bears and las vegas after dak prescott signed is extent like talked about and the raiders recently have back derek carr. They've given their full support. They they wanna move forward their cars. So that really leaves the saints and the bears as the final two candidates for possibly getting russell wilson this offseason so saints are always in salary cap trouble From what. I've learned about the salary cap they can. They ended up being able to just move money around when they need to. But they're always close to reaching that point so they're always during the cat but it seems unlikely that they will be able to make a move for quarterback this price in this caliber. So when you re comes down to it. The bears like the front runners as the most desperate team. Four quarterback if you've watched the nfl shares have always had quarterback issues. They've been in quarterback hell so to speak for the past two decades and russell. Wilson could come in and immediately fix that so the bears are desperate. And i see the bears as the front running candidate to lead russell wilson or land russell. Wilson this offseason. So when did all this start with russell. wilson is come out of nowhere I would say to myself when i first saw. Russell wilson wants out. I was shocked. But although it's not that cut and dry comes down to russell wilson. Mp carol's relationship. So they've won a superbowl. They made playoffs made. They made the playoffs. Eight times in the last nine seasons which is absurd. It's absurd to think there was wasn't been playing in the nfl for the last nine seasons But he's been assault as they come. He's true winner. he goes to the playoffs. he's clutch and i see. The situation is very similar to the tom. Brady situation new england. You had tom brady and bill play for all those years. Winning all those super bowls and talk. Although tom brady wasn't playing up to his level he wasn't playing bad and they had that loss to the titans of the playoffs. And i think he just had those two egos bill. Belichick and tom brady kind of going at each other. And they've they've finally kind of just tired of that relationship and they wanted to move on. They wanted to start. Something new. And when quarterbacks are with the head coach for so long things start to take a turn for the worst so. I'm not sure if that's exactly what's happening with p carroll and russell wilson but there are a lot of similarities there so it was reported in week. Eleven of the season. That wilson stormed out of an offensive meeting when he was trying to offer insight as to what he wanted done as on a bit done for protection standpoint and so that was the first sign the second sign is just overall. He's been getting hit way. Too much. says he's sacked. He's been three hundred ninety four times since entering the league which is on pace to be the most sat quarterback of all time which is pretty insane when you consider how well he's played and he's just been under duress running for his life literally for the last his whole career and so seattle hasn't found a way to kind of sure up that protection for him. I think that's starting to get frustrating as well. So but more specifically in two thousand twenty. He had a week nine loss to the bills. This was a defining moment for this offense offense because after that moment. Russell wilson had started to throw a lot of turnovers making a lot of risky plays they lose to the bills. The seahawks kind of started to scale the offense back like i said to limit turnovers and did not perform well for the rest of the season so before that game. They were top. Three league based on expected points added per play. They were the number three the top three leak and then after that game from from weeknight on they felt a number eighteen the remainder of the season. So that's a huge huge drop off so they really sputtered down the stretch. They were able to win games and make the playoffs through to their defense. Kind of picking picking up. Their play was weird. Their offense was so good in the beginning the defense awful and he kind of flipped that latter half of the year but he's also getting hit It doesn't seem to meet on their offensive loss of beat philosophy and he. He's definitely voiced that he wants more of a say. In the franchise direction as the franchise quarterback so all these things culminating into one is. Where would he end up.

"An animal. I love both of prospects. But this is playoff spot. Open jacoby started. His name is heinous strikes again. Strikes again the raiders. Defense did not look great yesterday and they had a chance to win. They had a chance to win at the end of the game. Kicked like a seventy five yard. The kickoff sit there my bed like wait. Wha what are they trying to do here the game. I know i'm old school. I watched too much of this stuff. Because i was literally at the studio and south four they said is i was like do. They got standard literally. Trying to make it a kicker to had a half a foot played a long time in the league. Because like this in there is no latest as it was like a comedy of errors by bowl teams at the end of the game. It really wasn't seems like anthony. Lynn tries noon event of ways to lose football games. The and this time it was just he was out dueled by a man who wore the wrong hat would like. We can't say enough about this. Jon gruden actually. What on the field. With an oakland raiders hat on and then said it was a prank. That was pulled on him or whatever and let's not forget he used to. Coach the oakland raiders. Did he just have this one in the closet or do you believe that. He was really duped by someone in the organization. No dot let me tell you something. My guy jon gruden got.

"If he ever really get over that. No I think the Tuck rule is Crockett personally. Okay. Absolutely not, and it's funny because I think within the first thirty seconds of his re introductory press conference when he came back to the raiders in January eighteen. He said, he fumbled the ball also really like to thank all of the raiders players that are here today I saw Charles Woodson Brady fumbled that. Was the first thing he. Had Charles. Woodson there to back him up and all the Raider Alumni. So no, he's not over it but again, like we were talking about a at a different time. I. Mean he's able to compartmentalize things. It sits there and it bubbles just below the surface is nothing he's ever GonNa Forget hopefully they learn from it and they figure out you know make that play happen twenty seconds earlier that way it's not inside the two minute warning and they can't review it. So it is rare I mean to get a trade for coach in general but given the conditions in the context that you gave us in terms of how that led to this trade in particular. What is gruden been saying about how he feels taking on this other former team that he has the one he had led himself by the way to a championship in two, thousand and two. As it stands now he did want to talk about it at all. He was really unusual this week when he when he was asked about the trade and and go in there and the memories, and what does he think about now shutdown all he wants to do is win a game and shortly thereafter came the news that he had to send his entire starting offensive line home for contract tracing due to a positive test for Cova. John doesn't like to get do these deep dives. He doesn't like to to get all philosophical, which is interesting because he doesn't like to do that in group type settings. If you get one on one and he's in a good mood, he'll regale you with tales and it's great. I'll text with him randomly on certain things and going back to the UNLV connection in when he was coming Vegas, I mentioned to him on texts that you know I I went to unlv and I still hated the hoosiers for beating my rebels in the eighty seven final four Steve Alfred was the double and Blah Blah Blah. Well, I forgot the John was a ballboy for Bobby Knight in the early Seventies. And Johnson, we can run with anybody now. Wait wait given given that perspective What is texting with Gruden like is he an Emoji Guy? Is he like? I just I just need to know a little bit more about what kind of texts stylistically that guy prefers. Ll and I'll just leave Tells I asked him we did for for the opener of Allegiance Stadium as a Monday night game. So obvious ESPN was all in on it. I was asked by by some of the pre-game crew there were producing that show could I please ask multiple star wars tied questions because of Mark, Davis calling it the death star. So get to John I go John I don't know if you're star wars guy or not. But when Mark Davis is standing over the entire stadium in he addresses you in the team and everybody's welcome to the death star where our opponents dreams come to die did any star wars imagery at all pop into your head at that point? Looks at the camera and he says I don't give a damn about star wars I just want to win games blah blah. So it was a great quote I killed on Social Media I text immediately thereafter I go. Hey man you know I had to ask about the death star right? He writes back L. O. L. I don't think I've even seen that movie ll Of course, my gift games got to be strong. So I, sent him a a Gif of the are blowing up and now is that conversation for the Oh god I mean, every interaction with Gruden is fascinating to me because we saw him interact with human beings on ESPN for years I mean, he built its reputation Paul as an offensive Guru on television and those teaching. Moments on ESPN and those now famous Gruden quarterback cam videos. But I challenge man to just take care of yourself and take tremendous pride in Vail ability endure -bility. You know what? I'm saying Camp Yes sir broke Dan Marino's record. So if he's six feet tall and able to throw for five thousand, five, hundred yards I'm saying why can't Russell Wilson? That's a long story man. Curry. On ever throw the Venus on his spider three white men and you were legendary when he was coaching Tampa Bay what's interesting? There is that his teams were pretty routinely defined by great defenses. So I'm just curious this buccaneers team. They also have an excellent defense. They're ranked third in the NFL right now by Yardage, how is this matchup GonNa work? Do you think well, if the raiders don't have their offensive line, I mean I think it's Kinda work very well for the raiders have. Given how good that defense is it? It's interesting because it kind of looks like a mere representation of of what happened in that. Super. Bowl. Right I mean. You had a a an elite offense in the raiders are that's the team strength against the team strength of the buccaneers and and the difference in that game was the Jon. GRUDEN. New The raiders offense like the back of his hand. So coming into this game, it's different but the same because you got the same type of mentality, you know the the good offense against the good defense and usually the defense wins out in that. So if the raiders don't have their offensive line. Then I think that's all she wrote. Up next more on the raiders and what it means for Pro Sports to flourish in Sin City. Guys, I'm telling you.

Hole inside of Las Vegas, there is the stuff that the natives do the locals and there's the stuff that all the tourists like me do and it does feel Paul correct me if I'm wrong here that sports like the arrival of a big stadium like allegiance stadium, which you just toured like this is something that is not only obviously going to attract tourists, but it's also very much for the actual people from Vegas. A source of pride definitely for this city and for this town and especially Raider fans got raider fans I grew up with embar store that I worked in L. A. or whatever, and whenever they come to town they stop off by that stadium anyone I took that tour. With Mark Davis a couple of weeks ago before the season opener, it was pretty eye opening. I mean from one perspective I covered the raiders one way or another since two, thousand five in the bay area the very first ever NFL game a raider game I covered on a credential I was eighteen years old a junior college student firestone college in my hometown of Barstow, and I went to an La raiders game when they played the of the final week of the eighty eight season.

"Its very own team that's involved with this. It's just everything is coming together where sports betting is is in the process of going mainstream las. Vegas. Is the center of sports betting throughout the nation. Now, we have a whole team. The raiders are in Vegas incredible start an incredible story I. Just you know I, I'm glad to see the all-star. Personally, I used to be a raider fan used to go. When they were in Los Angeles I, recall going to Kuala seem in watching those games and watching fights that happened it was fun. It was part of a part of my youth in that was part of the Raider nation days in the coliseum that's when the old black and silver was iconic and was associated with gang warfare but those days have kind of gotten past us now. The raiders did struggle there. They went through the organization with through a Lotta how with with Davis dying but yet market is now taking over the a struggle Oakland to really find the foundation because at the stadium. But now the carpet rolled out a new stadium in seems to be a good fit for the Las Vegas Raiders and the city of Las Vegas itself so very excited about this kind of keep an eye on see see what happens something else worth mentioning is in the AFC, the balance of power is shifting. New. England. Tom Brady is gone is no longer the dominant team Pittsburgh steelers. Well, we don't know if they're to stay healthy or not. So what happened last year they are no longer a dominant team the chargers the you know Philip Rivers for Year could always count on charges to be there they are no longer a dominant team. So balance of power shifted yes. It's Kansas City Baltimore everybody looks at Kansas. City is naturally they won the Super Bowl and Patrick Mahomes is probably your best quarterback in football. In everybody realizes Baltimore's. Incredible. Those teams haven't traveled matchup coming up this weekend but the point I'm getting out here as the balance of power shifting raiders on track to being in that in that first bracket of that, no name is one of these big teams in the AFC in this could very well be a big part of the story if the raiders can continue to win and they don't even have to go perfect, they can have a tenant six or five season they're getting their name is going to be in the mix is. Not just a playoff team but he serious contender in wouldn't that be an Incredible story here for their first year in LAS. Vegas. So keep an eye on the balance of power in the AFC and is the raiders continue to way you're gonNA hear their name, those conversations with Kansas City in Baltimore. We know they're going to win but the raiders contain you're going to hear their name up there with that. So something has to keep an eye on this as well. Let's see what else over cover the sports book world credible. This been you know they got we opened with the bars. You've got your locals and tourists in on the weekends. The have officially announce the air hotel is Yang as the headquarters. For Raider, nation on Sunday game gay there's GonNa be a ton of Raider fans down they are on Sundays and speaking of fans. If we go back to Monday night football, the tailgaters were out the the stadium did not allow fans. into the state of Yemen unfortunately, they made the painful decision to not going to do it at all this year they're gonNA plan to do, for next year. In some people thought, you know what a tragedy to have such group stadium in this great opening in this pandemic is unfortunately stifled. All that belief held played out. It didn't in play off that way at all allegiance stadium first of all the tailgaters in their parking lot. There was huge till getting action before the game, and that always goes bit with any football game. The sports books were rocking Raider fans and just football fans in general were out and you're gonNA see that it's all get time together is the ties between the Raiders Las Vegas become stronger and stronger informs the allegiant stadium wouldn't absolute success in to be able to do that and unfortunately without having proud in the in the stadium they just Kinda gone leaving able to to deal with what's going on in a proper fashion. I'm they're not going to be like some of these cities that we can put in ten thousand or twenty thousand or we'll just see what our governor says. No, they made the decision and it's in they're dealing with it but I think they made the right decision. And I think show by the fact that look at look at the the ratings it hit Monday night football you're going to see high ratings when the raiders at home you're gonNA see the same spike up because the raiders are playing the Fill Legion stadium the death star is here and it's going to be the mighty force and it's funny because when you look at Vegas and you think you'll football in the sports betting you always think of the evil empire you think of how the empire strikes back always takes down the individuals with the raiders are going to be a part of that now and the epic center will be the Stadium. So I just think it's incredible story I think it's fun. Glad to see it Raider nation finally now has something to really care about Let's see how the rest of the year goes. It prompted me do the thing of Raider nation and it was I was putting this together and I was looking all the different things. It just made this story stronger and stronger in. It's true. You know you gotTA team the. In the in the process of becoming a series pretender, you've got Syria, you've got a city that's now got a new team in the process of taking sports betting mainstream. You got a new stadium named the death star of things, which is beautiful as hell and They made the right decisions as far as they're laying out their future bit. They're they're dealing with it. You you got Monday night football took off like crazy. You've had a at time show with the killers that was phenomenal in the it just highlighted how this was in. Just it all comes together for the perfect for the perfect win for football. The perfect win for the city of Las Vegas. The Perfect Win for sports betting is it goes mainstream. Perfect win for this nation. Even if you're not a raider fan, the fact that we good stories, we need some success because everything has gone the other way with what we've gone through this year with coded. So this is just a big storm so that and happy to see it, and that's what prompted me to write in talk about Raider nation. Okay guys, I'M GONNA, leave it at that for today If I show tell friend in especially if you're a raider fan 'cause, I know how Raider nation grows in the world goes by quick.

"raider" Discussed on Strong Opinion Sports
"All that said Derek Carr was the best quarterback playing last night on Monday Night Football last night for me probably two nights ago for you on Wednesday morning. Now, sometimes I'm telling you when Derek Carr throws the ball off. It's the most beautiful spiral. I've seen like it's just looks like Aaron Rodgers throwing the football. It's like a work of art and he finished the game really really strong. I just want to see Derek Carr keep acting and keep getting better now to me the best thing about the game on Monday night football for Raider fans. Is the young guys who made plays you look around go. Hey, Brian Edwards a twenty-one-year-old third-round pick rookie had to really big catches. That's awesome is a receiver out of South Carolina. That's super cool. Rookie Corner, Damon. Arnette had seven tackles another young guy making plays Johnathan. Abram is making plays. He had safety's twenty-three years old second year running at Georgia. Gibbs is a stud. Darren Waller might be 28th, but he's the best faster than I don't know. I don't know if best identifiable the right thing. He's definitely the fastest tight end in football and he is a start at the tight end position. The future is really really bright for the Las Vegas Raiders and not just because the Vegas Strip is lit up. I mean, I am excited for them moving forward. They got a really interesting football team chock-full of young players and it's cool to me because the win against the Saints on Monday Night Football. Was a couple of years in the making the big moves the Raiders have made trading away Khalil Mack bring in multiple first-round draft picks drafting two years in a really really good. Those good moves are finally paying off for the Raiders. And I think that's very very cool. Now, by the way, I got to end with this on Monday Night Football. What is going on with the musical performances at halftime a Monday Night Football. I just don't understand the music never ever works for me. And I'm not against The Killers played this week on Monday Night Football. I'm not against The Killers. They're they're interesting band. but the music whether who no matter it is it always feels Awkward and and forced and like it doesn't quite fit in with the rest of show. Like this is not the Super Bowl halftime show. How many people does it really bring in how many people actually dead tune into the Monday Night Football game because of the musical performance at halftime. I don't know. I mean, guess maybe if my favorite band was playing I turned it on maybe I'd probably just go find the YouTube video afterward but it's all weird to me. I don't really understand and ESPN is literally doing everything possible to get views. Every time I watch Monday Night Football I go what's with the music like, why is this happening? And I just hate network shows. I hate network television in general but man ESPN gets weirder and weirder the music thing at halftime on Monday Night Football. It just doesn't make any sense. That doesn't work for me. Now, maybe their data says that it brings people in I don't know but I just think it feels Antiquated and we're dead and I don't really understand why they still do the music thing on Monday Night Football..
"raider" Discussed on First Take
"About these saints. Meanwhile, fellas the NFL riddled with major injuries to superstar players in week two I'm not GonNa lie I was John Deflated seeing saquon twice. The. Devastating news he is out what they torn ACL. Arguably, the giants best player asks for the niners they were devastated by injuries especially to their Defense Nick. Bosa also done for the season with a torn ACL. I hate reporting this type news on that no Marcus Spears here with us always good to see you though there's a bright spot in this negative story markets will get you in just a second Max. We've talked about this real defeated about our giants at this point, but is it a bigger loss with Bosa or Saquon Sikwan and it's easier to justify hydra pick on a defensive end than it is running back right at Bosaso Both from another planet that guy is great and so it's a huge loss but here's the difference the regime in San Francisco, GM and coach that were brought in not all that long ago several years ago already proved they know what they're doing. They know what they're looking at. What did I just say it's draft and development they know how to draft develop they know how to coach them up. That's why they had a ten point lead in the super. Bowl. Last year. Well, they lost to Patrick Mahomes and the chiefs. Yeah. Okay. Ten point lead late in the super bowl they know what they're doing without the giants. This is year three forgotten. How many like how many more years does it take? It's not that. The giants are terrible every year. Now Molly, we're giants fans and in New York in any town where you have to franchise usually you have the heritage franchise and the clown franchise the jets have always been the clown franchise in New York giants or the heritage franchise. But you've got to squint to see the difference right now. We got to clouds. ringling brothers, Barnum and Bailey Circus in new. York so many clown franchises when you add in the Knicks. Look. The giants built their offense around Saquon Barkley and respect to MIT Bosa he's a franchise level defensive player, but he's not their franchise player Saquon. Barkley. Is actually the giants franchise player. He's the franchise. He's the face of the franchise whatever Danny ainges right now, saquon is the face of the franchise. He's the most important offensive player and he's the system through which to evaluate Daniel Jones. Now, you know what this does. Stephen this gives gettleman excuse if it doesn't work out this year. Danny. Dives. saquon Barkley. So you know what that does that keeps Gilman in place another couple years how many do you need to turn this thing around four five years of to Tila, I don't care if they get an extra a better draft, they're not going to know how to develop the draft pick saquon best here was his rookie year right before the giants got their hands on them really this disaster. Well, you're wrong and the reason why you're wrong Max is number one because your emotion and understanding you. Hurt Right now. Both of you I told all I was lose Monday night to the Pittsburgh steelers you did you and no one. But that's okay. That's okay. It's perfectly understandable and I understand that your emotions are invested and I get your point. My heart goes out to truly truly does. Here's a reality situation. You call him a franchise, a franchise player. But you're missing a key point here Max. They're not really a franchise nobody cares about the I want to go into any way. Anyway we know this you weren't GonNa Win Anyway maximum and rub it in. You worry that win. Excuse me hopefully. Outside of the. Top of the giants where where with the. Holidays. please. Please Molly. Stopping better you know better. So that's number one and this is why is such a tremendous? There were actually expectations. Why were the expectations because the San Francisco forty, nine, hundred win the super bowl by the way with a ten point lead in the fourth quarter before they blew that the. This, what was their defense? What was the success predicated on? It was on their defense what was the defence predicated on their front four? They had buckner they had nick both. Santa Cruz. Armstead and these brothers. Okay. Now, button is going you got rid of him. You got to let him go because we're finance purposes you kept Armstead, Jimmy Ward and your secondary, your secondary wide awake remember they were elite in terms of limiting opposing tight ends with do against them. That was a big deal, but primarily, this success was based on their poor getting to the pastor and that was led by that Dude Nick Bozo months to Iraq. Nine sacks, forty seven tackles. Sixteen for losses that's nick. Both to that's just law. So when you combine that with the fact that button is already gone now you lost both okay and then again remember Richard Sherman to be out as well. You've got compromising take place all over the place for the San Francisco Forty niners defense. The last thing they could have afforded to lose with Nick you're. Losing, him, all I'm saying is the expectations Worn Francisco for nine with wit saquon Barkley dive note Dan Place. From, you you don't believe in Jimmy, G. Anyway I, don't. Believe in that to me I didn't believe in Jimmy G. But I. still believe up going to the super bowl last year because they that defend this year. If you're arguing this year, even if saquon meant a couple extra wins, it didn't really matter although the. Always, the Easter. So week maybe it did I agree with you this year you could argue Bosa is a bigger a bigger problem to lose then then Saquon but long-term saquon Barkley is the centerpiece of the franchise saquon Barkley now gives gentleman out when he points to Daniel Jones development this season. Everything the fact that the offensive line rework hasn't hasn't worked all that not to mention the fact that say point has a contract talk coming up that throws that at. All emotional. I was hijacking things. I. Apologize Marcus, I want to hear from you. You're the NFL player. I mean I would think that we're talking about this season right 'cause I keep near Max talk about the future down the road it's Nick Bolsa Bob Bob Loan Shot. This is not this is this conversation is predicated on the fact that these teams had plans with Stephen e the giants doing nothing and Marlene makes his much talked about this y'all know. That y'all understand where the giant saw. Yes. is devastating catastrophic to lose saquon Barkley his talent where he brings that team how he helps Daniel Jones in whatever way because it damn showing help up into this point. The thing is when you look at not only the depletion of the San Francisco Forty niners offensively with Jimmy G. B. and hurt kiddle being hurt. deebo Samuel not play a yet brandon I up in question. There's more step being with a knee and potentially playing without even talking about that. We're talking about the guy that was going to be the MVP most likely of the Super Bowl, had it not been for Patrick Mahomes, turn it in the Superman and make it plays down the road that's not good. Nick Has Been San. Francisco was a team that was supposed to be in the NFC to be buying another super bowl room and you guys say saquon. Barkley like. If we're talking about this season in particular, we're talking about what these teams are going to do what player is more valuable to that success in actually doing something to get something accomplished. Bolsa and is not close..

See the habit. Will it happen I? Doubt it, you know. He doesn't even work for ESPN anymore, but if I was ESPN, our say let's make this guy the guy. He's the Guy I think. That's just my opinion and you know it'd be cool because it would continue the great raider traditional Monday night football. John Mad-. Jon Gruden. Charles Woodson. Why not? What else we got. Today on fullbacks. The raiders used for bats one thousand nine point eight percent of the time this last season. It was the fifth most in the NFL. The most by the forty niners. Thirty five percent about. Sixteen teams half league used Fu bags, Western one hundred plays, ten percent or less. Most teams get about thousand plays a year. Raiders had nine hundred seventy last year. So, how do we hardly use fullback to raiders? Use It A. You know not a Thanh. But more most, and you know Jon Gruden. Kyle Shanahan these are west. Coast Guys You know it's it's in, and I think that's a good point to make because. Jon Gruden, he's he's trying to expand his playbook. And by you know slowly been doing that by adding the right guys and Allup ingold is a part of that expansion. Henry rugs is a part of that expansion. Lynn Boden is a part of that expansion. Jason Win is a part of that expansion. To make to get these guys these specific guys. and to build at playbook out and I think that's what we're seeing, and that's why I'm excited about this season. So I hope you're excited. In fact I know you're excited. Hoping, the show guys. This is Bill Williamson. This is over and bipolar.

Party his quote Ed to the reaction that we've all had over the course of the last few days to the reports that he had a party over the weekend his quote. I understand except that there are additional responsibilities in media. Scrutiny that come with being an NFL quarterback but it's very frustrating and disappointing when people provide completely inaccurate information from anonymous sources. Especially now to set the record straight. I know that we all need to do our best to socially distance and like everyone else. I'm continuing to adjust to what that requires but the truth is that I was with fewer than ten people for a home dinner not a party on Friday night so he sets the record straight from his own mouth to what was going on as I take your take on. Espn radio the ESPN APP. Siriusxm channel eighty ESPN news. We're presented by progressive insurance getting a little bit of your take on when when you'll be comfortable going back Dr Faustus comments that we've been talking a lot about over the course of the last hour or out on. Espn DOT COM article. Where he points out that in his opinion sports won't be saved to return unless there it's done in a quarantined way with no fans in the stands as also referenced in that article. There's a Seton Hall Business School Survey. That was done. That showed seventy two percent of the people they serve. It would not be comfortable going back to live sports when they reopened. That's why I asked you what you're comfortable with. Triple eight say. Espn eight eight eight seven nine. Three seven seven six. Are you going to go back? And you're going to participate in it. You're GonNa let that sort of moment right out for your triple eight say ESPN APP Jason. Fitz you can also tweet me getting more nos than I expected on twitter. I thought that I'd find out that people are alarmingly pro going back but we haven't seen that yet. We'll get some of your take coming in just but I'm excited for this. I gotTA admit I'm excited for this. I get to give you the straight talk brought to you by straight. Talk wireless what we're GONNA do the. Qb continued series happens every single day. We break down a different team on. I take they look at the quarterback situation. They talked to somebody from the team around the team. And they give you a little sense of. What's going on the quarterback position specifically? Well we all know where my family's I'm sitting here talking to you right now. Wearing raider sweats raider. Hoodie and a raiders hat. Because I bleed silver and black. You all know that so. Qb continued today. Happens to be breaking down my beloved raiders. I'll give you a little bit of my thoughts but I will get thoughts from somebody. That's actually on the team right now as clean for the debated fourth overall pick from last year Who came in and had a up and down. Rookie year joined. I take today to talk about. Derek Carr and competition within the raiders. I mean I just feel like competition brings the best out of everybody and Co's grew preaches that fullest extent. And obviously I love the. Cdc someone who took me on nieces weighing the second I came in and You know obviously A Lotta fans might portray him as lie you know. He's Kinda IFFY and his third. But I love the defense. Obviously we just trying to bring in the best group of guys. We can have an quarterback role to kind of bring out the best out of everybody. We'll go from there. I appreciate your love for DC. Clean Cleland thank you for being on the show but I must ask you this question. I understand that you level. My question is do you believe in. Him. I know he can play. He's not a scrub completed. Seventy percent of his passes last year. I got respect for the brother. But do you believe that? He is the franchise quarterback for the future that God move forward with for years to come. I definitely feel. Idc has that. No no I mean we wanna give them all that money for no reason. I mean you definitely got to look at how things went last year. You know obviously the situation when it's only ordering work out the way that we want and Obviously we had a very young receiving core and that can be tough on a quarterback and receiver. So it kind of goes hand in hand but I feel like we we we. We will head in the right direction with with whoever goes out there. So I'm excited for DC hand. You Know Marcus to anybody who might get breath. Will they traded Khalil? Mack for draft picks. One of them turned into you and people were surprised we were projected as a first round. Pick but how high up you went and then you had your rookie season. Really good against the run. Not a lot of sacks usually defensive ends especially when they do the kind of grunt work or good or stout against the run are tend to be a little rated them when they put up the flashy sack numbers. What was your evaluation of your rookie season? I feel like I had a good rookie year. You know I put up. Some numbers probably every category. I would just say Just what the the way that you know? My team was asking me to play. You know I don't know if you've watched or not but actually inside and outside and I was a little bit of a different mix for me because I see that as my potential and luckily I feel like we have a very young group as a defense ally still learning to play together. But I feel like you know. Obviously I'M A lot. It's like the state you know what I mean you don't you can't you. Can't cook a whale good filet Mignon and two hours? I say time but when his red is going to be ready so I'm is actually she know what I'm talking about so you know I feel like you're going to be true especially because I really I mean I've been putting that work in for sure I take on. Espn RADIO AND ESPN news. I don't know if I can remember a quarterback that's more sort of vilified by a fan base and I don't know that I understand why I get tweeted. All the time about raiders takes particularly about Derek Carr because many of the fans have decided the Derek Carr simply isn't good enough. I would challenge that concept. Look I'm not saying that. Derek Carr is the next Aaron Rodgers and unfortunately in his MVP year for so many people that became the comparisons MVP caliber. I should say that became the comparison. It suddenly became. Derek Carr is going to be Aaron Rodgers. Good the fact is most teams. Don't ever have Aaron Rodgers. Could it just doesn't exist to that level so now. So what now what? Who Do you actually have quarterback Derek Carr last year with receivers that? Nobody's ever heard of completed seventy percent of his passes for four thousand fifty four yards twenty one touchdowns in a quarterback rating of one hundred point. Eight now I know stats. Don't say everything but those stats. His completion percentage was better in a head to head comparison. The Russell Wilson to Shawn Watson or Dak Prescott. His yards per attempt was on par with all three of them. In fact interceptions the second lowest of the group his quarterback rating the second highest of the group. You can look at him. Statistically and see that he's a quarterback that continues to perform at a high level and that's what's maddening is. He's spectacular no. Is he good enough? Yes and should that be good enough as much as that's the shocking answer for many people? I believe it is. We've we decided the Derek Carr is the villain because he doesn't take a lot of risks because he doesn't take a lot of chances and I understand that but I would challenge everybody that is standing up today saying there cannot be the future quarterback for the Las Vegas Writers. I would challenge every raiders fan to say that to at least go back in your lifetime like I have and remember the quarterbacks that you actually grew up rooting. For if you're forty three years old like I am that list. Forty-two almost forty three. That list is comprised of more names like Todd Marina Vich than it is names like rich. Gannon Derek. Carr doesn't get the credit he deserves. I'm not saying he's Aaron Rodgers but I don't think he gets the credit he deserves now. We're GONNA continue as we do with the. Qb continued every day. To get an expert on straight talk wireless. We're going to get some of that everything for only at Walmart we're joined now by ESPN radio reporter. Paul Gutierrez Paul. I was just waxing my thoughts on Derek Carr so give me your mindset on Derek Carr the quarterback lacking poetic Jason and as always. Hey you know you went old school on me and I know I'm a few years over the news so you're going back to Miranda Vich I'M GONNA go back and I'm hoping you're wearing Zubizarreta pants right now. You know because if we're GONNA talk old school I mean. I grew up with Plunkett. Mark Wilson and Wilson was the villain and Plunkett could do no wrong. Lunka was the guy winning super bowls and and it was ugly and it was dirty but he was winning. And that's the one thing that that with. Derek Carr I believe in Raider Fans Today. Is They think back to twenty sixteen and and how much he was kind of a gunslinger there how he was extending plays how he was playing at a league. Mvp level really until the broken ankle in the next to last game of the season and he hasn't really been that same guy ever since and yet you look at the numbers career highs in passing yards last year career. Best completion percentage over seventy percent. He is the raiders franchise all time leading passing leader in terms of passing yards. And yet. There's still something missing for for a lot of raider fans and and car fans we'll tell you well. He's missing a wide receiver number one. The Antonio Brown experiment blew up in their face last year. And they're still trying to recover and car detractors will tell you he's just not the same guy since breaking his ankle and my expert opinion and all this. They're both right. And that makes a Lotta sense while I would agree that he's become more hesitant since the injury but I would also agree. I mean you look back to some of the games last year and it would be like a trivia contest trying to figure out who was throwing the football to the receiver position was decimated so look at this team moving forward now if the argument has been. He doesn't have the weapons. And we're going to continue the quarterback series with Derek Carr. How does he continue this year? How how do they do? They have better weapons forum in your mind. Well not unless they draft or get wide receiver one. Because that's the biggest glaring hole out there. I mean like I said the Antonio Brown thing just blew up in their face and they were still trying to recover from it down the stretch of the season last year because that offense was really kinda built in geared towards Antonio Brown so unless they draft somebody or find somebody on the free agency scrapped. You can fit that role then. There's going to be that built an excuse. And yet you see what Darren Waller did explosive as a playmaking tight. It Josh Jacobs. Who if he doesn't Miss? Three the last four games the runaway winner of offensive rookie of the year that offensive line which is beat up all year. It's still kept him fairly clean. So there's not a lot of and I hate to use this word excuses for him but there's always that built in one about he doesn't have that play making receiver and yet if you look at certain plays in certain games on certain. Faiths these guys whether it's Zeh Jones or tyrel with with both aching feet guys were getting open. But they're also a lot of drops and that affects them his confidence not only himself but his confidence in his receivers to go ahead and say. Hey you know what I'm GonNa let you make a play. He had confidence in crabtree competence and Cooper until he didn't any longer. And you saw what happened after that we're talking to ESPN raiders reporter. Paul Gutierrez I. Take your take on. Espn radio I'm Jason Fitz. Give me your thoughts on the draft for the raiders particularly because there has been some speculation that they're interested in Jalen hurts or a quarterback that they can attain in the third round. That sort of level do you project that they will be looking at quarterback position in this year's draft depends on who you talk to and we talked to Mike mayock yesterday and he's obviously never gonNA show is true hand to us that he has his board. He's GonNa go that way because on one. Hand the raiders. Do have five six in the top ninety one. And that's great on the other. They don't have anything from twenty to seventy nine and that's may sweet spot so I can see them trying to trade back from nineteen and get back into the second round because they don't have a second round pick He likes her third. Rounders may say you know having three third round fixes almost like stealing And if they're doing their job right. That's three starters they confide. So when it comes to the quarterback position he could not praise Derek Carr enough. And here's the simple fact here. Is that this shutdown Every workout being virtual all that does is working..

"Mike almost hold around and felt it looked like before I hit load. I like the ones that have the giants or get a lot of damage. Also like the buster sort of final fantasy. I've been seventy two it muscles and they were picked. They weren't a little guy with a ball for a hand. Okay look if you're in if you're in the the Laura Croft Tomb Raider Universe and you get stuck in an alternate reality. -ality what are you GONNA do. You're GONNA get swollen that's all you can do. You'RE GONNA lift all you're stuck in an alternate reality with giant boulders. You'RE GONNA have to learn how to let all all and there were some super tough jumps in the floating islands to. Oh my God. Yeah really tell saving after like every jump. Yeah I think you're supposed to I mean you're up in the air the whole time it was this I mean i. It was testing me like I I beat the IB Temple Zion and floating islands and the rest of the game. All all in one night while temples nine took me like all day. But I'd be feet the I I want to. At that point I was just like I was done I was like I need to beat this game. Be Done with it. I don't have to play. Yeah but I want to say the phone island did have the Bartoli thugs. They came back again and they come back. We have to fight the guardians and of totally bugs. And there's one really shitty room where you drop shop in you drop them to this room and there's like six of the Guardians and like four or five are told you thugs and I just stood there. Eight men packs and unloaded the UC's into because if you walked too far we start acting guardians. That was that was miserable. See that's where that's where you best strategy is you drop the cage age and you just jump around that central area there that we're at that Cajun closed and just shoot the guys while they're trying to throw their knives at you and as you jump. Then they're throwing them at you but they're aiming were you. Were so keep missing young. I I couldn't do it. I would never good at any of that jumping in this game. I said I didn't learn how to roll until very near the end of the game. I really oh rolls three sixty turn. Oh and you need that role to climb up some of those ladders to learn it by the way because you had all the latter jump off a ladder hit the roll button so she turned around before you hit the ladder on the other side but he was ridiculous cave. was I mean that that that that that was not nice is it a is it time to talk about Bartoli plants. Sure I think for near the end. So yeah at this point of the game you've come across your fighting Bartoli to get the dagger Bartoli gets it stabs himself. He's carried off and the next time you see him. Bart Holy Dragon. You're fighting his henchmen and these ancient like warriors is frozen the reality and Bartoli just the dragon in that reality is that his endgame is just a dragon in a different reality. A different dimension will the drag could come back to our reality. Yeah but I mean like like an f twenty two. I feel like it's still take out. A dragon like at the end of the day dragon is a flesh but richer. This dragon. The only thing that can dragon is removing that Dagger Cabinet Dragon with like a fucking Predator. Peter Missile then surely the dagger would fly out like his game is to be the Dragon. I guess to take over the world as the Dragon Right. Yeah I just I don't know. It seems like a very roundabout way to take over the world. She's like Oh yes now. The Dragon Yeah. Well we didn't stand much of a chance in that movie arena fire did we were arena. Fire totally one dragon. Also a shitty movie great features. We're we're GONNA fight over this though. We'll be doing podcasts. I seen the movie I just know. It's okay you don't eat too so hey you might control the world. But you're still stuck as dragon. I'll maybe I'm not seeing the benefit of being dragon. Yeah track when and you fight the Dragon. I actually asked if I when I was fighting. I blew it up. I went in the water to go. Get more ammo and then I realize he wakes back up. I was not happy I did. I kill them a second time and I had to save and load about four times because she would not grab the dagger out of his belly. She just wouldn't do it. I'd walk up. Hit the gotten nothing. I even had to watch a video. See what the other guy did. And I'm like I'm doing this and I kept doing. It finally worked. Oh Yeah yes one JANK. Yep I like how if you if you took a long time to get to the end of this game and you like forgot that initial cut scene. I cannot imagine how long it would take somebody to realize. Oh I've gotTa Take Dagger Out of the Dragon's stomach which I'm sure happen because you think about it. I mean this is a long game like this game took me twenty hours to beat it and I would have never beaten in a in two weeks I had to fuck cast and I was a kid if I could have seen this game last month. I'm sure it did for people to play it when it first came out like Nikki. Yeah I mean I remember the First Cup team anymore. Yeah it literally took me two years. I think to beat it because I talk in an earlier level of just like jumping over the barrel earn barrels the snowballs in Tibetan level. That role at you. I would not jump down and I died that ever so finally broke down. I went to God I want to say it was like Walmart or something back then and I bought a game shark just for infant also also I would eat. Damage was when I was young. I barely adult. Don't feel bad this game. It's hard is there a way. Hey we can play this game shark now yes I WANNA point out. I Serious when I initially looked up how long this game took to be. I what I saw I saw was somebody saying. Oh it only takes spout like nine hours and I was like. Oh that's not bad. Nineteen eight realizing that nine hours is like if if you've played this game several times before and you know everything about it. That's our gave going out of this. Like blind or after years of not playing. Yeah this is like a twenty hour game for easy. Yeah if not more I like I could see somebody spending. I see somebody spending up to thirty or forty hours in this game. Just exploring exploring like if somebody wasn't if you're not good at puzzles this game is going to take a long time. Yes honestly even if you're just like unlucky with puzzles because a lot of is like Trial and error. And if you just if you're just unlucky in you're not doing the right thing it's GonNa take you a long time to to navigate where you need to go what we need to do. So many puzzles are like hidden as puzzle behind this random painting. I mean there's so many things that I would have. I feel like I never would've figured out. It wasn't for me Rena Guide. I told me what to do. Because there's just so many strange thing you're just looking at my playtime since I got off Gio G. and my total playtime of the game now. This includes re reach doing levels because of mistakes made yeah and Reload and that a total time of twenty four hours and one minute one hundred percent hand that was also remember. I've played it before and beaten it before now. Of course one level I used level skip Cheetah Ed get passed before which was that again the temple because they writers in general makes levels or it. Yeah I just don't understand the plan. I don't understand why you made us play this aboard. Dragon Yeah we haven't. We haven't addressed the final level yet. Oh Yeah Yeah. This game has a After credit scene log level which I was saving all my animal for I was on very very unhappy when I found out that he has no ammo and no weapon everything. I say that nothing Eh. Outfit Change wearing a nightgown now says she doesn't even have clothing in. This town generally allegation like until about that real quick. Look Yeah so back in the day. I don't know like who knows this. But if you took playstation games and put them in like a stereo our your CD player you could just listen to the audio files off of it really. Oh Yeah I remember doing that and you get to the one where you hear you know the very the end where she's taking the shower and everything before she shoots the screen and I was like wait. What is that? I have to find out whatever this is and then I started on the Internet and you see things like oh the tomb raider like new codes and things like that so that further led me into like. Oh I gotTA play this game. She's naked in some layer. Even not the case at all no Talkin Speaker is she you kill all the parts like the rest of the Bartoli guys tracked you down and your mansion you WWLTV bin Laden. Kill all while you're you while your vision is filled with like the bloody corpses of the Bartoli Mafia. You're yeah like I'll take a shower before I call the cops and then as she's about take a shower. I think it it. It virtually to Cameron. She says something. I couldn't hear it. Don't you think she's seen enough and then I couldn't understand it and then they just shoots a camera. which do we look? That's a clever way. Didn't it the last trolling to the people who just want to see laura naked chefs after you defeated their boss As a giant Immortal Dragon. Why do they still come and attack you at your place like they can't take you on by now right well? She was ready for the Dragon. They had to wait for her to be like about staying shower.

"raider" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"We don't feel like we're the best team in football but we should be in the top eight or nine. Thank most cowboy. Fans are realistic. I think notre dame fans know that on most saturdays they can beat anybody not named clemson or alabama right like like people look at notre dame and cowboy fans is unrealistic. Most notre dame cowboy fans. I think are fairly and they've gotten more realistic over time. Raider fans have this weird obsession with the media. It's not us. You've been bad for fifteen to seventeen straight years. Don't blame the messenger you win five games a year ear and now your schedules worse than it's ever been harder than ever been. Your division at the top is better than it's ever been. Oh by the way you've got a major distraction in camp. It's on you. It's not on us too weird fan base. I think the browns have a little bit of that too. Well i do think the browns roster. If i lived in cleveland might take away would be today. We've got a lot of talented players. I think for for a browns fan. If you really talk to the average fridge brown fan most are guaranteeing playoffs. I don't think most guaranteeing super bowl. They do know that tom brady still he still exists. You think so. Tom brady this start with the steelers and rothlisburger nova date. You know it's funny cleveland so last year cleveland was seventy eight and one and they are sure they're going to win. The division pittsburgh was nine six and one by the way the browns were blown out five of times last year. I think they were blown out once by pittsburgh once by houston once by the chargers. They got blown out by somebody else really good. It's never blown out several several times nothing against the libya vernon odell beckham but that doesn't make you a great football. I mean it's not that they haven't taken a step up and i'm sure baker. Mayfield is going to be better than he was last year and it's a more stable situation than it was last. We're all those things are in play. It's like this reaction if anyone questions as you're gonna you're being unrealistic. Yes it's very realistic to say. Nine and seven wasn't what's up folks as chris bruce art. I am here with my partner rob parker and together. We are the odd couple that's right. Join chris and me every day as we give you. The hottest feistiest sports takes that you won't hear anywhere else and for the record rob parker is the one i'm the more reasonable what so listen to the couple with chris bruce hart and rob parker on apple podcast bore when the iheartradio app or wherever you listen to podcasts.

"I think screenings is actually pretty cognizant of where they're releasing, what they need to do of like, fuck we need to get this game into the hands of press so they can play it and understand that they like an and it's cool before Spiderman gets to give Laura at least a week or two, maybe head start on actually getting to play a game that's going to be big, right? They're bringing back the open world kind of environments the not the open world hub cities, I guess, for lack of editor to actually get in there and explore and do it so that it doesn't get lost. 'cause this game was drop into the hands of press after Spiderman. I think with all the respect to this, it would be a holy shit. We have brainy Spiderman IP and it's great, and it's like Spiderman, two, here's a million ideas for Spiderman features wherever you can get shadow the tomb raider out there into their hands early. You have a better chance to resonate, right? Because this is what I was talking about leading into it in what I think gamers still do have to worry about. But my concern was when we talked about this on games, cast of looking forward to it, Tim asked me point blank, do you think you're going to beat this tomb? Raider and I'm like, I hope so. But I could easily see where I don't. Where I am still trying to platinum man when it comes. I'm screwing around with that. Okay, I start rise the tomb raider, but then it is here chronicles four. Then it is assassin's creed, then it is red dead and it's like, is the story of rise shadow going to be so compelling that I finish it. I think getting as early as you came into the hands of people to say that no evangelize it, it is good is a good time. What think it's also important to remember that Spiderman is a PS four exclusive and shadow of the tomb. Raider is not right. It's going to be on Xbox One PC NPS for God. It's all coming out at once for and on top of that tomb raider has long legacy in video games and they have a massive fan base, so I don't. I don't think spider-man's going to steal all of the spotlight from from tomb raider like at, I don't think I think it's going to stand on its own. It'll just be interesting. This is the one that gets the claim that deserves like, I don't think rised it probably because exclusive window even the reboot of tomb, raider people like the time, but it was okay. Cool. Like I. Member saying how much I liked it and how I was so in in raptured with it. But I don't remember getting like the drum beaten as loud as I always thought is there see, okay, I've as loud as you thought it deserved. I agree with, I remember distinctly everyone talking about how much better that game was than the original tomb raider built upon. A lot of the game play mechanics at the reboot was trying to establish, but then they took it a step further and added more exploration more hunting more collectibles more too because the first game had like just a handful of tombs, and then they brought in more. And now this time they're gonna be like a central feature in the game, which is going to be great, but I can't wait. I think it's tough, stiff competition. You know your game route there where you're sixty bucks, keep going, but I hope it gets his shot. And I hope actually it does really well, because again, really a fan of that franchise number four.

"On the bill barnwell show i'm still bill barnwell joining me now to talk about the oakland raiders when we've had a quite exciting off season in case you haven't noticed hiring some people signing some people letting some people go a very interesting set of decisions and joining me to discuss them and discuss the raiders offense for twenty eighteen is someone who's extremely qualified to discuss that matter it's the athletics ted win ted how are you i'm good how are you bill i'm great really happy to have you on we had you on the nickle package earlier this year talking raider stuff and the raiders problems on offense at the time and they ended up continuing to be problems for the entire season which is why the oakland coaching staff might not be there anymore so i wanted to ask you let's start with this in terms of you know someone who was a raiders fan and also a very qualified analyst as well with each of those hats i mean were you were you did you feel like it was appropriate for jack del rio and that staff to be let go and replaced with jon gruden or was it something where you felt like they deserved more time i thought it was appropriate i mean first of all i want to say you know i thought jack del rio did animal job for the raiders he took the job when nobody wanted it yeah and yeah nobody wanted that job when when he was hired he came on he changed a culture there he wasn't a strong schematic coach you know the defenses constantly mess and that was supposed to be his expertise but he did get the pm to a winning record and you know in the playoffs and they haven't been in plano for a long time before that his worst mistake was obviously letting bill must be go for todd downing by thought you know he did what he could and he did his job he turned around the team a little bit and made it respectable but i think for team to take the next step another coach neither have come in so i thought it was appropriate that he was let go all right ten i want to ask you about jon gruden and about that coaching staff but i wanna talk to you.

"Game was very successful this is the first time we have a tomb raider movie that is taking the plot from a game and deciding to put it on screen yeah but that's a five year gap in hollywood and in the video game industry five years might as well be twenty years i'll tell you what the game they wanted to make was uncharted that was the one that graham king of jk pictures was really excited i don't know this game but apparently it was a big hit in two thousand eight two thousand nine everyone was playing on charted and that was what he bought and he acquired at the same time tomb raider with the idea that on the off years when they weren't doing the male version of it they could pop out maybe a tomb raider version of it but david russell was signed you know the fighter american hustle i didn't know anything about the game but i'm really a big fan of him i was on board for uncharted film do you guys know that one yeah familiar with it but you're not excited stuffing to come to the movie theaters i guess the vibe i got from that game is kinda revolutionized free world exploration in this vein of game so it was cool to the game industry but i don't know that there's anything in it that screamed take it to the big screen well they had some problems because it as of two thousand eighteen is still not on the big screen david russell went off and made other films and i don't know if that will ever happen but yeah j pictures was like well if we're not doing this do we do tomb raider i guess we don't and even though the game was i guess you're saying a big hit it was pretty much not going to happen until another oscar winning best supporting actress said i'd eat a big payday yes well the game i decided to play it between our last tomb raider reviews in this one i've gotten about halfway through i'd heard good things about it but as we've mentioned in earlier podcast tomb raider wasn't my jam i was just so sick of jump.

"Yeah flying that whereas laura croft do you know there's all these meetings of saying hold on let's let's look at the bible we'll consult it real quick not the literal bible but the tomb raider bible of well she wouldn't do this because of that and there's like jesus christ actually jim raiders inspired by the bible's vice versa imagine imagine that more isn't always better like i always say if you had to choose yeah a wacky tomb raider that's more in line with jumanji or a hard like beaten beaten down grady tomb raider like the one you saw what would you go for here's what i want i want a gritty jumanji where people are getting fucked up by rhino the first one knowing got fucked up by rhino car no the plants eight david allan grice car it's triple by animal tail and he tried to talk to deroga moves in rauluni he was talking about as pene and everyone the kid but on all the makeup he likes freaky is he's turning moos frightening nightmare fuel probably jumanji you go for a movie well yeah i've heard it is good i thought it was i actually i disagree i i very much enjoyed the gritty realistic tomb raider over shimon she which i enjoy jumanji wasn't crazy about it wasn't crazy about this move either but i i like the greedy approach he'll come more than the wacky i guess another movie to this would be like warcraft that came out recently where it is in a it's a movie that was okay and adapt to something that his beloved by a lot of people tomb raider probably not as much as warcraft people probably remember tomb raider moore's a movie these days than video game.

"Points you get to them there's a jam it's a save point you save your game screw that noise i couldn't make these stupid jumps so i had a hot key if i hit f eleven on my pc at saved soared make this chuck die loads make the jump die load make the japan made it hit off eleven now make the next jump i was pretty much cheating at that point and then there were just a lot of puzzles and if there's one game that i really hated hated hated it was missed that thing was a huge success for pcs and max but to me puzzles are only fun if there's clues you can figure out i love seventh guest because they give you clues and then you do puzzles to meet tomb raider was a whole lot of what the hell am i doing and me looking of online oh i have to move this block over of a third square and then jump and hang on a ledge and then it all made no sense it was seemed very random so i actually don't like the games i should have there something else i really he didn't like about tomb raider though those graphics back in ninety six this was a big revolution three d gaming i was used to to de game in with spreitzer even when you're playing doom you're pretty much playing a tutte game everything was a deep picture and with three d gaming when it came out i was confused i was like do i have to wear glasses why would anyone want to do that they're talking about three d graphics cards note this is the start of three d gaming where they had poly god's there and so you're characters could rotate in free space and like any technological achievement the first baby steps are ugly and i felt tomb raider was an ugly game i'm like this doesn't look anywhere near as good as dukhan newcomer those because everything so angular and harsh and so i felt like that game just didn't live up now by the time you get to tomb raider four and such the graphics are great they just re booted the universe with a game that's almost photo of realistic but.

"About this tomb raider and i was really into shooting in action games zen doom duke new all of that this seemed like it only starring a woman and you had a third person perspective instead of a first person perspective so i bought it i'd be the first three tomb raider games i played this one probably not in ninety six i think i got it in ninety seven they were coming out once a year and tomb raider three was the first one i bought new release going to best buy i played it it was around this time i what you know something like i'm not having fun i don't like these games sometimes it takes a long time for that to sink in i mean how many times have you see freedom minutes before you realize there were problems i like one but i think it was like eight new it was eight where i realize the good things because everything else with killing me but what happened was i started a review site four games and i was playing all kinds of games modern classic king's quest was getting reviewed i was trying to go all the big games in order but i was still keeping up with the new ones too and the thing with two murder was i played it loving the times when i got to shoot dinosaurs or shoe dogs are shoe anything people that part of it was fun but the game was a hell of a lot of jumping and i'm not a fan of jumping puzzles and i played the pc version i laughed at people with playstations 'cause i played some of the playstation to remind myself here of what it was like on the playstation you could only save at certain.
