LISTEN TO HOUR ONE HERE!!!

DMac says we have a much smarter team this year, and it starts with Special Teams. DMac tells Al who cares if we let a couple big play opportunities go by, he’d rather play it safe. Al says Jon Gruden’s vanilla gameplan is boring, the Raiders are playing for Vegas, and Derek Carr is not Gruden’s type of QB.

In the Big 3, Big Al can’t get enough of Aaron Rodgers postgame, and says Rodgers had some help on Sunday. DMac notes how the Boston Red Sox celebrated clinching a playoff spot, and we hear audio from Jon Gruden on building the Raiders up again & winning at the same time.
