On the Raiders podcast with Rich:

#1 Rich, from what you seen in practice and pre season how ready are the Raiders as they open their season against the Baltimore Ravens in week 1 on Monday Night Football.

#2 ESPN football analyst Keyshawn Johnson said that Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is in the elite quarterback list to which Johnson received a lot of backlash for. Johnson was challenged that if there were a poll between Carr and the Rams Matt Stafford, Stafford would win by a landslide to which Johnson said he’s not paying any attention to a poll but what Carr has done on the field and that’s why he’s convinced Carr is an elite quarterback.

#3 During Wednesday’s presser head coach Jon Gruden didn’t comment about acquiring linebacker KJ Wright from the Seattle Seahawks but he did say a lot of good things about the linebackers they have. The Raiders released Tanner Muse who was a 2020 draft pick. Rich, just to get your thoughts on the Raiders getting Wright and releasing Muse.

#4 Rich, the Raiders signed running back Peyton Barber this week Barber played with the Washington Football Team and last season and had 270 yards, four touchdowns, and has started 30 games career. How much of a plus will Barber add at running back.

#5 Rich, talk about how ready is Ravens starting quarterback LeMar Jackson for this opener he had his vaccine issues and he’s under center against the Raiders will he need time to throw or will he rush more on Monday Night Football?

On Headline Sports podcast with Tony Renteria:

#1 The Sacramento Kings will be opening up their first preseason game on October 4th and you will be joining your broadcast colleagues for Kings coverage Jeremiah Salmonson, London Marq, Morris Phillips and Jeremy Harness for complete coverage of Kings basketball.

#2 That October 4th game will be played in Mumbai, India. It will be the Kings’ first preseason game in India and has to be very special for Kings managing partner Vivek Ranadive.

#3 The Oakland A’s have played some very exciting ball. They took three out of four from the Houston Astros and took the first two games from the New York Yankees at the Oakland Coliseum. This has turned out to be a very interesting series.

#4 The Oakland Raiders have won two of their first two preseason games and head coach Jon Gruden said this team will deliver “you can bet on that” The Raiders play preseason week three in Winnipeg against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football.

#5 The talking head, the critics, and talk show hosts have said the 49ers offense is struggling and they showed signs of that against the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football this week. 49ers starter Jimmy Garoppolo had three on completed passes out of six and zero yards. Was this a matter of Jimmy G just not prepared or just rusty coming off the knee injury?
