Another week of Raiders talk on CBS Sports Radio 1140 as the Silver and Black Today is back on the air.
Hosts Matt Gutierrez and Scott Gulbransen discuss news from the Raiders OTAs in Alameda including the growing buzz around free agent running back Doug Martin. Could he actually challenge Marshawn Lynch for a starting role? We discuss.
SilverandBlackToday.com‘s Sr. NFL Analyst Chris Reed joins us in the first hour to discuss his story on how coach Jon Gruden‘s “tough love” approach with Derek Carr will yield results and how the young quarterback is embracing this style. He breaks down why it’s good for Carr and how it might improve his play.
In the second hour, we talk to renowned sports author Steven Travers about his book The Good, The Bad & The Ugly: The Oakland Raiders. Travers, a former sports columnist with the San Francisco Chronicle, talks about Al Davis‘ beginnings and how the Raiders struggled in the early years. He shares more great stories on the John Madden glory days and talks about how the Raiders fell behind after their 2002 Super Bowl run.
