Cube also breaks down his take on the Raiders in Las Vegas after a year and what he thinks the team will do with an improved defense.

Scott Gulbransen is back with another edition of the Silver and Black Today show and asks: so what if Tom Brady was talking about the Raiders in his HBO comments. Does it matter for the Las Vegas Raiders, Derek Carr, or Raider Nation? We discuss the real reason why it's even being alledged it is the Raiders. Jesse Merrick of News 3 Las Vegas is our guest as he weighs in on the Brady/Carr faux controversy and tells us why 2021 is a key year for the Raiders quarterback and why it has nothing to do with Brady. Plus, Merrick talks about the Raiders having to succeed to compete with the recently eliminated Vegas Golden Knights of the NHL. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The news of Raiders DE Carl Nassib coming out as the NFL's first openly gay active roster player was met mostly with support by those in and outside the football community. Both the Raiders organization and the NFL itself congratulated Nassib for his public announcement. Despite initial support from some, there's also been a backlash and you won't believe the reason why. Plus, in Raiders roster news the team signed second-round draft pick S Tre'von Moehrig and continued speculation around Damon Arnette's future calls into question what the Raiders defensive backfield might look like this season.
We're back with a new podcast where we tell you why, at the end of the day, OTAs don't really matter much. Sure, they help the Las Vegas Raiders players and coaches some but it won't give fans a glimpse of who will be starters on opening day. Plus, host Scott Gulbransen tells you why the signing of RB Kenyan Drake was big for the Raiders. He breaks out the key reasons why you should be excited about him and what it means for RB Josh Jacobs and Jon Gruden's offense. Finally, we hear about how and why Denver Broncos star Von Miller was in Las Vegas helping some young Raiders get better from our correspondent David Stepanian.
We're back with our first podcast since before the NFL draft and host Scott Gulbransen brings you the latest Las Vegas Raiders news and views. We start talking about the Julio Jones trade and why some in Raider Nation wanted the veteran receiver while others were a hard pass. We also revisit John Kincade's comments - he covered Jones and the Falcons for 20 years - about the downside of the talented WR. Then, "Uncle Hondo" Carpenter talks with us about Jones, the Raiders draft, and his observations from OTAs. Carpenter talks about the Raiders need for help at linebacker and sneaky good moves this offseason. We close the show talking with an All-Star caller from our Raider Nation Radio show - Rossi the Aussie. Rossi talks about his views on the Raiders offseason moves and what one position worries him most.

Plus, callers express their appreciation for the show and Scott's hard work the past three years.

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.
