Thursday’s show continued our focus of the week: the Las Vegas Raiders defense. We discussed Paul Guenther’s press conference and heard what Clelin Ferrell had to say.
Paul Guenther met with the media today and seemed like a new man – relaxed, confident in his new defensive roster, and excited about what lies ahead in 2020. He talked about his inability to field a team deep enough for the playbook and talked about Cory Littleton, Clelin Ferrell, Jonathan Abram, and Maliek Collins. We also heard from Clelin Ferrel on his rookie campaign. Evan Groat of the Just Pod Baby podcast gave us his impressions of the Raiders media extravaganza today as well.
Our tour of the 2020 Raiders opponents training camps continues this time on Tobacco Road in Charlotte with Joe Person of The Athletic Carolina. With new head coach Matt Rhule, QB Teddy Bridgewater, and returning all-everything Christian McCaffery, it should be a game Las Vegas can win but it will be tough. Plus, Q continues to advocate for the Raiders to trade their first-round draft pick in 2021 to Jacksonville for disgruntled DE Yannick Ngakoue.
