PODCAST: Raiders Talk postgame from 23-21 loss to Seattle Seahawks

Share

The Raiders wrapped up their preseason schedule with a 23-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night. The next step is settling their roster, with most of the work expected to be done Friday.

The Raiders probably won’t announce anything until Saturday when the cuts are due to the league, but Thursday offered some glimpses into who will make the team.

On the second episode of the “Raiders Talk” podcast, NFL writer Jerry McDonald joins me as we talk about this game and what the roster looks like as it gets finalized.

  • RaiderCODE

    DeAndre Washington 11 rushes for 14 yards 1.3 YPC

    wow didnt realize it was that bad

  • inonewordraider

    Good in the pass game, ideal for rb#2

  • This was a game dominated by both defensive lines.

  • RaiderCODE

    looked like a man against boys out here … he’s gonna help us this year

  • So are you in favor of a Justin Hunter (top name I’ve seen so far) pickup?

    RB is great. Zero worries.

  • PodunkRaider (aka RRS)

    Menelik Watson cut, yet?

  • RaiderCODE

    Vegas has Aints only favored by 1 in their home opener… interesting

  • RaiderCODE

    uh, more like starting… so, no…

  • Kid’s got jokes.

  • r8dercain

    First it was he can’t stay healthy..now you want him cut..
    Your foot just gets deeper and deeper in your mouth..lol

  • inonewordraider

    Hunter>holton or brent, sankey >richard imo, might be others better as well

  • PodunkRaider (aka RRS)

    I said he sucks. quit putting words in my mouth!

  • PodunkRaider (aka RRS)

    who doesn’t.. Raiders should be the underdogs. Didn’t the Saints rush for like 250 yards last time they faced us? If I recall, Pierre Thomas went buckwild

  • feet*

  • PodunkRaider (aka RRS)

    Rex Ryan?

  • raiderfanmikep

    first game of the season surprised its not 3 points for home field to the saints just shows they dont know whats going to happen haha

  • Disagree about Sankey.

  • RaiderCODE

    I thought Cook looked solid. For a rookie, he’s stepping up in the pocket, he’s not afraid to stand in and take a hit. Seems to have a good command of the offense, got to his 3rd read on several occasions. He needs to work on his footwork which will improve his accuracy. Overall for a 4th round pick rookie, he’s looks pretty good.

  • raiderfanmikep

    makes you feel good if Carr needs to come out and McGloin is out or cut

  • RaiderCODE

    it was 3 points until recently. line moved mostly on what they saw – surely there was little action

  • R8der4evr

    Home team usually is favored by 3 no matter what, so essentially we are 2 point favs.

  • PodunkRaider (aka RRS)

    aren’t they playing for some guy who died? I seem to remember that. they’ll be honoring a dude on WK1 at home

  • Teabag McKenz

    I watch for Courtney!

  • R8der4evr

    Meaning they factor in 3 points automatically before the spread

  • Teabag McKenz

    I think they play well off of each other.

  • Thanks

  • Hey, Cain brought it up.

  • PodunkRaider (aka RRS)

    found it … former DE Will Smith, 4/9/2016

  • inonewordraider

    If we aint goin ward as the interior guy along with dan i’d go latham over jelly or mcgee, at least u get more disruption on interior

  • PodunkRaider (aka RRS)

    he also changed the scoring system AFTER the draft. whee!!

  • It’ll be Autry Ward Jelly Mack to start the season.

  • RaiderCODE

    Autry was a beast last night too. Playing with one arm he was wrecking havoc.. He looks ready to go ..

  • Teabag McKenz

    It will be Dan and Ellis, Ward will work in a rotation in the middle and at DE.

  • He did what now?

  • raiderfanmikep

    shoot playing for passion… early morning road game.. oh man i hope the Raiders score a quick 14 or 21 points in the 1st Qtr

  • R8der4evr

    Connor will only get better, was a great pick IMHO

  • RaiderCODE

    Im starting to agree – esp for a 4th rounder (to be fair we gave up 2 picks) but still he looks like he belongs..

  • What was changed? I don’t notice anything. Everything crazy about the scoring system the effected my draft strategy is still in place.

  • inonewordraider

    Jelly over dan? Hope not…ward on interior to start? Ingram freeman then murray/henry could gash us, but if we can somehow stop the run its the ideal lineup, qbs bware

  • I fully expect to.

  • If Dan is still too fat. Really we’ll have several different groupings and a strong rotation.

  • LondonAl

    I think the majority of teams we face will be favourites. We are a team that has sucked for most of the 21st Century.
    Go Raiders!

  • Duct tape

    Completely trivial, but does anyone understand how incredibly hot our cheerleaders would be in Vegas? All those bottle service girls. They’re the best in the industry.

  • RaiderCODE

    Rivera on the bubble? – not necessarily tomorrow but if there’s a good TE on the waiver wire/street after the last cuts, Rivera might get the axe .. he looked terrible yesterday

  • Guest123
  • Duct tape

    Hahaha! U got it. Burning hot!

  • raiderfanmikep

    there are meds for the burning lol

  • raiderfanmikep

    but his sister!

  • Being 1 point underdogs on the road actually shows some respect for us.

  • R8der4evr

    Hehehe
