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?
