The Silver and Black Today radio show heard locally in Las Vegas on CBS Sports Radio 1140-AM, is back with a recap of the Raiders vs. Rams and with two great guests to help us look back and forward on the week that was in Raider Nation.
The Raiders reserves didn’t impress on the field in a 19-15 loss to the Rams in their former home – the LA Memorial Coliseum. With the exception of the undrafted rookie free agent running back Chris Warren III, the Raiders offense looked putrid. But there were plenty of highlights on the defense. That was a big subject on today’s radio show.
The Athletic Los Angeles NFL writer and columnist Vinny Bonsignore joined us in the first hour of the radio show with his observations from the game. Bonsignore said both the Rams and Raiders have problems at backup quarterback heading into the rest of the preseason. He also was impressed with Warren who he thinks is the real deal.
Bonsignore then offered his view on the new tackling rule and Rule 12 – the rule which penalizes defenders for landing on top of quarterbacks. Bonsignore thinks the NFL should give the referees a break and allow them to use instant replay at their discretion to make sure they get calls right.
In our second hour of the radio show, Bill Rabeor of WDUZ The Fan in Green Bay joined us to preview the Raiders next opponent – the Green Bay Packers. Rabeor talked about the fully healthy Aaron Rodgers and how the team may miss former Packer Jordy Nelson. He also discusses their upgraded tight end group and their impressive defensive front.
We also introduce Matt’s new radio segment – The Audible. Each week Gutierrez will choose an at-large subject to discuss on the show and we take your calls to hear what YOU have to think.
