Raiders vs Rams Prediction, the Gap Between Derek Carr and Justin Herbert, Raiders News

December 6, 2022

Episode 142 of The Autumn Windbags comes a day early thanks to a Thursday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Rams! The question of the day: With the Raiders sitting at 5-7 and on a three game win streak heading into NFL week 14, how long does the win streak have to be for you to think playoffs? The Las Vegas Raiders still have the Los Angeles rams, New England patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs to close out the season. Its a giant uphill battle to reach the playoffs but is there a certain win streak that would get you excited at the prospect? The Good: The Las Vegas Raiders are on this run on the back of a big win over the Los Angeles Chargers in NFL week 13. Josh Jacobs, Davante Adams, Derek and Josh McDaniels all had big performances. The offensive line had its best performance of the season pass blocking. Nate Hobbs returned from injured reserve and had a great game. Chandler Jones had his biggest game of the season BY FAR with three sacks. Defensive backs Isiah Pola-Mao and Duron Harmon came up huge as well. The Bad: The turnover monster appeared against the Chargers. Josh Jacobs is one of the best ball control running backs in the NFL but he lost a fumble. Derek Carr threw a pick six as well. The third down offense and 4th down defense both need work. Justin Herbert is great on 4th down but its still not an excuse. The Ugly: The NFL referees missed a pass interference call that led to Derek Carr's interception. In Raiders news, Raiders vs Patriots was supposed to be on Sunday Night Football in primetime. It made sense with Josh McDaniels vs Bill Bellichick and two teams that were supposed to be in playoff contention all season. It didn't pan out that way so the NFL flexed the game out of primetime and replaced it with the Washington Commanders vs the New York Giants. The Raiders made a move at defensive tackle as well releasing Kendal Vickers and signing Kyle Peko. With the recent success, are the Raiders finally set at offensive line? Currently, Kolton Miller, Dylan Parham, Andre James, Alex Bars, Jermain Eluemunor are the Raiders starters and have performed well recently. The Raiders and Josh McDaniels rotated offensive lineman all season trying to find the perfect match and it looks like they might have found it. The Las Vegas Raiders visit the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday Night Football. The Raiders Rams matchup pits the Rams terrible offense against the Raiders vastly improved defense. Raiders vs Rams 2022 also comes down to the Rams' two back up quarterbacks and beat up offensive line against the Raiders newfound pass rush. Another big Raiders Rams matchup is the poor pass defense against Derek Carr and Davante Adams and also potentially the return of Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow. Also, The Davante Adams vs Jalen Ramsey matchup is the most important one-on-one matchup of the game. On what up, windbags ... we discuss Soto playing sick, we found the hot blonde that was sitting next to Mark Davis at Raiders-Chargers and how big is the talent gap between Derek Carr and Justin Herbert?

November 30, 2022

Welcome to episode 140 of The Autumn Windbags! Question of the Day: with our channel closing in on 5,000 subscribers, the Windbags wonder what we should do to celebrate the milestone? The Las Vegas Raiders NFL Pro Bowl running back Josh Jacobs is having the best season of his career. He leads the NFL in rushing running for more yards than Saquon Barkley, Nick Chubb and Joe Mixon. Plus, Josh Jacobs has improved every part of his game. But the Josh Jacobs injury history is a big deal. Bringing his asking price down is a slew of big name running backs hitting the open market at the same time including Saquon Barkley, Miles Sanders, Tony Pollard, David Montgomery, Kareem Hunt and others. Does Dave Zeigler and the Raiders sign him to a long term deal, franchise tag him or let him walk? And how much did Davante Adams cost the Raiders with Josh Jacobs? In raiders news today, Anthony Averett goes to injured reserve and the Raiders bring up from the practice squad Tyler Hall. Tyler Hall Raiders time has been trending up. Tyler Hall is taking time from Amik Robertson and other Raiders corners. Former Raiders first round NFL draft pick safety Johnathan Abram got picked up by the Seattle Seahawks. Will he find more success in a new environment? Nate Hobbs is officially back from injured reserve and should hopefully play against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Las Vegas Raiders take on the Los Angeles Chargers in NFL week 13 at Allegiant Stadium. Justin Herbert and company lead a passing attack that will be a major problem. It is up to Maxx Crosby and the pass rush to get to the quarterback. The Chargers run defense is worst in the NFL so Josh Jacobs should have another big game. The Chargers will be without JC Jackson, Joey Bosa and multiple defense tackles so Derek Carr should not get sacked six times like he did in their first game. Jermaine Eleumanor vs Khalil Mack is a big matchup to watch. in What Up, Windbags, the guys discuss how much blame should the defense shoulder, why the raiders never tanked and more evidence Derek Carr is the ultimate teammate.

November 22, 2022

The Autumn Windbags delivering episode 138 a day EARLY in respect of Thanksgiving Day. The Windbags ask, what is the best Thanksgiving Day food? Soto brags about his jalapeno bacon mac and cheese. RJ goes with the traditional stuffing or his patented deep fried turkey. This conversation went WAY longer than it should have. The Raiders vs Broncos game brought out the best in the Las Vegas Raiders locker room. The Raiders released the locker room celebration and it showed head coach Josh McDaniels delivering a great victory speech. It showed Josh Jacobs, Davante Adams, Max Crosby and others celebrating. But mostly, it showed the team not fully celebrating until quarterback Derek Carr was in there. Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon was released this week. Gordon's fumbling problems have to be a big reason why. The Melvin Gordon fumble on the goal line was all Maxx Crosby punching the ball out. Maxx Crosby played a huge role in ending the career of a Bronco. There are also other rumors that Melvin Gordon may have also been cut because he played the music of Russell Wilson's ex-fiancé in the locker room. The New York Jets have one of the best defenses in football and have a great team when the line gets healthy. Except Zach Wilson is holding the team back. Derek Carr's name was floated out as a possible target to be a good fit for that team. Its hard to find a comparable quarterback trade to assign value to Derek Carr. Matt Ryan, Carson Wentz, Matt Stafford, Russell Wilson and Deshaun Watson all involve multiple variables. The Windbags took a closer look at the depth of the Raiders organization.  @Haberman & Middlekauff  played a clip of John Middlekauf describing how he got fired as the Raiders post game radio host for tweeting about the raiders 0-10 start. The Raiders fired Middlekauf. Is this petty and a sign of how the Raiders do business or was Middlekauf in the wrong for bashing his employer? In What Up, Windbags, the guys answer if Josh McDaniels was the biggest winner Sunday, does the Raiders time of possession point to the defense or offense and does a listener want to share his girlfriend with the Windbags?

Its episode 135 of the Autumn Windbags. Away game for RJ again. This time in New York City. Question of the day: What is your go-to drink after a Raiders loss? If you are a long time Las Vegas Raiders fan, we know you've had to drink away your sorrows a time or two. Soto says mezcal, RJ says whiskey. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is back on the main show, by popular demand. The Good: Derek Carr had an incredible half in the Raiders-Jaguars game. Devante Adams had a monster first half with two touchdowns. The Raiders defense had a pair of standout linebackers: Blake Martinez and Denzel Perryman had a ton of tackles against the Jacksonville Jaguars offense. The Bad: The Las Vegas Raiders were terrible on 3rd down, the Raiders offensive AND the Raiders defensive. Derek Carr had no time to throw with how bad the offensive line performed. The Ugly: As good as Derek Carr was in the first half, he was that ugly in the second half against the Jacksonville Jaguars defense. Davante Adams was held to only one catch int he second half. Maxx Crosby has seen his production plummet for the Raiders defense. In Raiders news, former first round draft pick Johnathan Abram was cut this week. The Green Bay Packers picked him up off wavers. The Raiders news today is that this is another sign that Raiders defensive coordinator Patrick Graham may not be as flexible with his scheme as we thought he would be. With Johnathan Abram cut, he completes the clean sweep of Raiders first round NFL picks falling flat. Alex Leatherwood cut, Henry Ruggs cut, Damon Arnette cut, Clelin Ferrell option declined, Josh Jacobs option declined, Johnathan Abram cut. Yet another example of how back the Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock squad was in the draft. Josh McDaniels is 2-6 as the Las Vegas Raiders head coach. Josh McDaniels was also 11-17 as the head coach of the Denver Broncos. The Big LV Raiders news is that NFL Pro Bowl wide receiver Davante Adams called out Josh McDaniels on the play calling in the Jaguars-Raiders game. Is this a sign that Josh McDaniels is losing this locker room? Soto also says that Josh McDaniels should relinquish play calling. Former Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall played under Josh McDaniels during his stint with the Broncos. Brandon Marshall went off saying Josh McDaniels is not a leader of men. The Raiders defense ranks last in sacks, takeaways and passer rating allowed and second to last points per drive allowed. The big Raiders news is the Raiders defense also allowed 15 of 15 in goal to go in the red zone. The defensive woes are exacerbated by the fact the Raiders defense has played poor offenses like the Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints and Denver Broncos. In What Up, Windbags, the guys discuss player effort, how much Mark Davis is to blame and a new drinking game for the show!

Episode 133 of the Autumn Windbags is HERE! How is it no one has brought up RJ's thick, robust beard yet? Question of the day, what is the best fast food burger? Trying to keep things fun after the shellacking the New Orléans Saints gave the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. RJ says an In-N-Out burger. Soto says McDonald's Big Mac. The NFL Trade Deadline came and went November 1st and the ONLY move the Raiders made was trade away Johnathan Hankins to the Dallas Cowboys. Dave Ziegler Raiders general manager is still sticking to their long term game plan. Dave Ziegler and the Raiders are still trying to clean up some the money issues left by former Raiders coach Jon Gruden. But Dave Ziegler has made some big, questionable himself: Derek Carr's extension, signing Chandler Jones, extending Darren Waller and signing Hunter Renfrow to a big contract. Derek Carr's contract is set up so the Raiders are stuck with him for three guaranteed years if he's on the roster next season. Will Josh McDaniels and Dave Ziegler hitch their wagon to Derek Carr? In Raiders news, after the trade deadline came and went, Dave Ziegler spoke to the media. Was Ziegler playing damage control or was he onto something. With the Raiders now 2-7, Mark Davis has already had to meet with Josh McDaniels and issue a statement through the media about his head coach. Would Mark Davis fire Josh McDaniels after just one season? On what up, windbags the guys discuss how they can argue no matter what, do players LIKE Josh McDaniels and a dive into the Raiders media.
