The Only Nation Podcast welcomes former long snapper Jon Condo after taking a look at the Las Vegas Raiders’ new defensive coordinator Gus Bradley.
Introducing the Raiders new defensive coordinator
Gus Bradley became the Las Vegas Raiders’ new defensive coordinator earlier this week after stints with the Seattle Seahawks and Las Angeles Chargers. He has a history with head coach Jon Gruden but has been very successful away from ‘Chucky’s’ tutelage. His ability to work with putting his players in positions to succeed will be a welcome change from the leadership of Paul Guenther.
Spotlight on Special Teams
In addition to a tale about the late Al Davis and superstition, the show welcomes former Raiders long snapper Jon Condo, who speaks about what it was like playing under Davis. He relays how the team rallied together to win their first game without him. Legends kicker Sebastian Janikowski and punter Shane Lechler took the long snapper under their wing as a young player. Condo reveals their road trip tradition before flights and how he felt so welcomed by the pair.
We ask him to put his manager’s hat on and give his opinion on the current team. He then lets us know what he has been doing since leaving the Silver and Black.
We wrap up the episode with a look at the AFC special teams player of the month for December and January, Daniel Carlson. This rendition of the show is heavy on special teams, which is often overlooked. Even though it is frequently an afterthought, it is a crucial part of the game. For this reason, we are happy to shine a spotlight on these unsung heroes.
