    Are the Raiders interested in trading Derek Carr?

    Are the Raiders interested in trading Derek Carr?

    Jimmy, Vic, Tashan and Ted have a lot of things to talk about in this Super Bowl edition of State Of The Nation. Vic's story about Nelson Agholor's speech after the loss to Miami came out. Very telling that a newcomer to the team had to be the one to say something after the team was in the middle of another second half collapse. Do they need to do something to change the locker room culture and is there anyone on the team that should step up to take that the leadership role? They talk about the rumors of the Raiders trading Derek Carr and acquiring Deshaun Watson. Carr has a team friendly deal and they debate about what another team might be willing to give up for DC. They think if the option to get Watson is out there, you have to do whatever you can to get him. They preview the upcoming ESPN 30 for 30 "Al Davis vs the NFL" and talk about what they liked and didn't like about it. They talk about if the Raiders have any interest in Richard Sherman and who would be the most impactful free agent defensive signing they could make this offseason. And the guys give their Super Bowl predictions.

    Raiders hire Gus Bradley to be their new Defensive Coordinator

    Raiders hire Gus Bradley to be their new Defensive Coordinator

    Jimmy, Vic, Tashan and Ted discuss the Raiders hiring Gus Bradley to be their new Defensive Coordinator. Bradley is a huge Gruden guy. He was given his first NFL job by Gruden back in Tampa Bay. The guys are concerned that the Cover 3 defense that Bradley runs is not a great fit with the Raiders cause of the talent they have to rush the passer. The Raiders will need to sign a big name pass rusher or make a deal or find a stud in the draft. There are a lot of what ifs with running that scheme with the roster that they have. They talk about how Gus Bradley's system can hopefully get Cory Littleton back to his Rams form when he was a Pro Bowler. The guys also answer some questions and give some picks for this weekend's Divisional Round Playoff games.

Not really sure what to expect in the finale since both teams are out of the playoffs and banged up. Will the Raiders play more young guys or still with the team that got them here this season? What are some things that the team needs to improve on in the offseason? Will they try to bring back Nelson Agholar or will his price tag be too much for the Silver and Black? Ruggs and Edwards struggled this season and the guys talk about the reasons why they think that happened. They break down their over-under wagers on Raiders players stats that they did in the preseason. And they take some questions and give their predictions for Raiders at Broncos.

    Postgame- Week 16- Dolphins beat the Raiders 26-25 with some craziness in the last minute

    Postgame- Week 16- Dolphins beat the Raiders 26-25 with some craziness in the last minute

    Jimmy, Ted, Vic and Tashan break down the Raiders 26-25 loss to the Dolphins and all the craziness that happened in the 4th quarter. A tough crushing loss for the Raiders that eliminated them from the playoffs. Was the decision to play for the field goal late the right or wrong call? Things changed offensively for Miami when Ryan Fitzpatrick came into the game and showed off a little FitzMagic. The guys discuss some interesting play calls and why some players are getting more targets then others. Should the Raiders have had some packages with Mariota running the ball? Should Ruggs be much more involved in the offense or is there a reason he hasn't been getting a lot of targets?
