We spend our Easter show talking about the abomination that is the Raiders schedule and the latest on the NFL Draft
The NFL schedule was released this week and there is no doubting the Raiders have a tough road ahead in 2019. In addition to having the most difficult schedule in the league, the team will have a stretch of 49-straight days where they won’t play a home game. That’s five weeks straight as a road team – including a game in London against the Chicago Bears.
Is that fair? The NFL says it’s just the way things work out but Raider Nation isn’t buying it. We’ll talk about the scheduling and what it may mean for Jon Gruden and his team.
Many in the national media went bananas this week after news broke that Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock sent the team’s scouts home earlier this week. Our own Chaz Osborne – an NBA scout with the Los Angeles Lakers for 10 years – says it’s not a big deal and the scout’s work is done. So why is it a story? Another example of the media slamming Gruden? We explore.
We also talk to Paul Minor, a Raiders fan who is on the journey of his life to lose weight and everyone in Raider Nation is helping. Minor talks with us about his journey and how fellow Raiders fans are helping him stay on target. It’s an amazing and uplifting story from an overwhelmingly positive young man.
