On the Raiders podcast with Tony R:
#1 After the Las Vegas Raiders (2-7) loss on Sunday 25-20 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas the Raider fans booed the team off the field and some fans yelled at Raiders owner Mark Davis to fire Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels not quite the exit the Raiders wanted.
#2 McDaniels to say the least is under media and fan scrutiny for the 2-7 start and said during his post game press conference that the trouble and the loses start with him.
#3 Davis told the media that the Raiders did an extensive search for a new coach in the off season and said that he’s building an organization and that Rome wasn’t built in day.
#4 Talk show hosts and reporters say that Raider quarterback Derek Carr who teared up during the post game press conference after last Sunday’s game sounded like he was looking at the end. There was also mention that there might be a strong quarterback class coming out of the draft next season.
#5 The Raiders are headed for Denver (3-6) for this Sunday’s contest. The Broncos lost four of their last five games and lost by a touchdown to the Tennessee Titans 17-10. Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson hasn’t been world beater can the Raiders stop him this Sunday?

On the Raiders podcast with Rich:
#1 Rich, the Las Vegas Raiders have made big news on Sunday hiring a new general manager Dave Ziegler and a new head coach Josh McDaniels. Both men come from the New England Patriots. Zeigler was head of player personnel and McDaniels was offensive coordinator at the Patriots.
#2 Ziegler replaces former Raiders general manager Mike Mayock who was fired in early January. McDaniels was also head coach at the Denver Broncos for two seasons 2009 and 2010. McDaniels replaces interim head coach Rich Bisaccia.
#3 Rich, Coach Bisaccia led the Raiders to their second post season in 19 years and at the end of the season the Raiders had won four of their last five games before being eliminated in the AFC Wild Card game by the Cincinnati Bengals.
#4 Bisaccia is a free agent and the Chicago Bears are interested in hiring Bisaccia as special teams coach and will work under Bears head coach Matt Eberflus who was hired on Thursday by the Bears.
#5 Rich, McDaniels comes from the Patriots where he was offensive coordinator there since 2012 and under head coach Bill Belichick. So McDaniels had some good mentoring under Belichick all those years.
