We're back with a BRAND NEW podcast hosted by Scott Gulbransen and our NFL Draft Analyst Kelly Kriner. Kriner gives you his seven-round Raiders mock draft addressing the needs the team has heading into free agency this week. Scott and Kelly talk you through each round of the draft, the picks, and alternative options should the player selected be gone. They also discuss the importance of the team hitting on this year's draft after the misses in the past few - as of today.
The final episode of Silver and Black Today on Raider Nation Radio 920-AM kicks off with host Scott Gulbransen talking about the show's history and how it will go on after today's finale on a daily radio. We also get a steady dose of Russell Wilson chatter and Scott and Dmon Cotton ask: why is it so irritating talk of upgrading at QB even if you like Derek Carr? Plus, callers express their appreciation for the show and Scott's hard work the past three years. NOTE: Although the show is leaving daily radio, it will continue in March in a podcast format so stay subscribed!
We close out the final hour of our final daily show on Raider Nation Radio talking with listeners and about our memorable callers. Also, Vinny Bonsignore stops by to reminisce about his days as a contributor on the show when it was on CBS Sports Radio and Scott says goodbye. *NOTE: Silver and Black Today will return as a podcast in March so stay subscribed!
Mike Sando, the senior NFL writer for The Athletic NFL and co-author of Thursday's blockbuster look at QB Russell Wilson's unease in Seattle, joined us to discuss the story and what it means for his future with the Seahawks. Sando talks about how it got to this point between the future Hall of Fame QB and head coach Peter Carroll and tells us if it's repairable. Also, we talk to Sando about the teams named by Wilson as willing destinations including the Las Vegas Raiders - which seems not to be a great fit.
We kick off our Thursday show with the big NFL news of the day: the list of teams Russell Wilson would accept a trade with was outlined in a store on The Athletic this morning and the Las Vegas Raiders were on the list. That's a good thing if you're a Raiders fan and we tell you why. Also, Alain Poupart of All Dolphins talks why Wilson to the Dolphins might be a move that makes sense as they were named by the QB as an acceptable destination.
What are NFL GMs saying about Las Vegas Raiders starting QB Derek Carr? Host Scott Gulbransen welcomes guest co-host Hondo Carpenter who wrote about his conversations with three GMs who gave their assessment. Plus: who were the biggest, baddest badasses in Raiders history? We tell you our picks and get yours! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
We continue the conversation about the Raiders biggest badasses...and take your calls. We also get a full history and thoughts on the Las Vegas sports scene from Chris Maathuis of News 8 Las Vegas. Maathuis celebrated his 24th year covering sports for the CBS affiliate and talks about the impact of pro sports arrival in Las Vegas - including the Raiders.

We're live on location from the studios of the Las Vegas Raiders world headquarters in Henderson, Nevada. The Raiders again have a Top 10 difficult schedule which underscores the importance of this offseason to get the team's defense right. Jesse Merrick of News 3 Las Vegas talks about the best fits for the Raiders needs in NFL free agency and gives us his first-hand experience at last weekend's Vegas Golden Knights outdoor game at Lake Tahoe. Callers talk about Cliff Branch and his omission thus far from the Pro Football Hall of Fame - the biggest travesty there is currently with the greats that played the game.
We kick off Hour 2 live from the Las Vegas Raiders worldwide headquarters in Henderson talking with CBS Sports NFL writer Bryan Deardo. Deardo talks about the state of the AFC West and where the Raiders factor in a division that's been recently dominated by the Chiefs. We also talk to Deardo about why he (and we!) believe the late Cliff Branch is by far the best NFL player currently not in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We close talking to Vinny Bonsignore about the AFC West competition and how it shapes up for the Raiders in 2021.
We're back for our final week on Raider Nation Radio and host Scott Gulbransen welcomes guest co-host Hondo Carpenter. The guys talk about the available free agents on defense who fit the Raiders and how the team must address offensive tackle as well.
