On our newest Las Vegas Raiders podcast, Scott Gulbransen is back with a brand new Silver and Black Today for the last week of June. As the NFL dead period rolls on, boredom has hit the news cycle as this week’s biggest news in Raider Nation had nothing to do with a Raider.
On our latest Raiders podcast, Scott asks: so what if Tom Brady was talking about the Raiders in his HBO The Shop comments. Does it matter for the Las Vegas Raiders, Derek Carr, or Raider Nation?
We discuss the real reason why it’s even being alleged it is the Raiders.
Jesse Merrick of News 3 Las Vegas is our guest as he weighs in on the Brady/Carr faux controversy and tells us why 2021 is a key year for the Raiders quarterback and why it has nothing to do with Brady. Plus, Merrick talks about the Raiders having to compete with the recently eliminated Vegas Golden Knights of the NHL.
Scott and Jesse also talk about this week’s story from Vic Tafur and Tashan Reed of The Athletic, where they discuss 2021 being a “make-or-break” year for QB Derek Carr. Is he the only one that must prove he’s capable of taking the team to the next level? They discuss that premise and how Jon Gruden might be feeling the same pressure to win.
