Raiders: What Was and What Might Have Been

After updating us on some of the latest Las Vegas Raiders’ news, the Only Nation Podcast crew takes a deep dive into some past free agents and a few former “what if” draft picks.

Current Raiders news

The Only Nation Podcast presents some current Raiders’ headlines to start off the episode. We cover the release of David Irving, the publishing of the preseason schedule, and a new show about the Silver and Black available on Vice TV.  Also, we look at an article about the greatest Raider defensive ends of all time.

What might have been…

Then, we take a hard look at historical members of the Silver and Black. First we each present a “what if” draft pick. To clarify, players who the Raiders drafted that for some reason, make us wonder “what might have been.” Said draft picks include former first overall selection quarterback JaMarcus Russell, linebacker Rolando McClain and defensive end Matt Shaughnessy.

What actually was…

After asking what could have been, we look at what actually was with some past free agents. To set the stage, these are free agents that have been somehow underrated in one way or another. Here we examine the Raider free agent careers of defensive back Charles Woodson, wide receiver Seth Roberts and fullback Marcel Reece.

Ending segments regarding the Raiders

The crew takes a look a the possibility of Julio Jones landing in Las Vegas. We also ask if Zay Jones should be more worried about making the team as opposed to changing his jersey number. As always, Homer and Heidi are given a quiz question about the history of the Raiders. They seem to be stumped on these quizzes lately. Finally, we each talk about the importance of this week’s Heidi’s Heroes.
