All right Tom let's talk a little football about this Raiders team NBC SN came our power rankings and the off season. And they -- have the Raiders ranked at number 32 blast in the NFL how fair is that in July. The but the Raiders at number 32. Probably when you take a lot of -- probably. A little realistic. You know and it hurts everybody our feelings. Could we -- liberated there you know those of us -- good that remember that the great year guru but the way that. The team has been broken down the way they're rebuilding and right now it's kind of an unknown team on the just. Think you know that don't -- the -- brand new loss to have learned this year with the with the players that they have the players that are gone. You know they six elevates it. Starters that are drawn all pro kicker all pro defensive linemen so. That's that's a big. Turnover and because of that that's where they have right richt era I think that's where they're mercker. Well with all those names you've got and I'll learn for the radio broadcast how do you think Reggie McKenzie is done. And trying to reshape the raider franchise. Well I think he's done they've done a good job. The end all I've worked well together. You had a planning demon with the plan. And there executed that plan and with a plan. Unfortunately comes patience a -- unfortunately because you know a lot of patience anymore in the National Football League. Or pro sports you can do see what happens every year. Of the movement. Everybody wants to win now. And they have no plans -- this year they're gonna fight and scratch and then straight from them credits -- what they want. And and try to make a move within a goal and a mixture and immature. Your formidable team. And next year they're gonna have a new look at quarterback they've got three guys all fighting for you got Matt Flynn whose new prior comes back yet Tyler Wilson who they drafted. What can raider fans realistically expect from the quarterback position. Well that's a good question I'm not sure. I'm -- rash of this is using it dawned. I'm gonna go up a little worried this year to go to a go to training camp because you -- Sosa is mostly the same roster. With a few additions. This year it's a completely new roster and that position. -- like Carson Palmer unfortunate he's gone. Joba back. So I don't know a lot about. Any of these you these quarterback -- to the millions that -- you're green very. Didn't work up from zero. Prior have a tremendous monitor. Tell you been working. A lot. Last year. Trying to get become a quarterback in the National Football League. They get all skills that are mesh -- is your physical skills the rest of us would have to be the -- experience. Playing quarterback. And I don't know much about Wilson. All right there is one name -- familiar with the -- Charles Woodson he comes back to the silver and black. Had a chance to maybe be a leader you talk about Gene Upshaw and his leadership qualities what is Charles Woodson gonna add to that locker room. And trying to help -- Dennis Allen. Well they're one of the things that he will help that he's played in big games. He's been a leader of force in big games. In in the with the Raiders in this would first time that I used in a Super Bowl unfortunately they lost. They -- -- -- they won a Super Bowl there were in the playoffs every year. He's been I don't force playing every position possible in the defensive backfield and I think that's a plus of having -- you don't have to be every down player. But he can be a player that can play you know it -- that the core American do a lot of things. And that's a good it's going to be a very young defensive backfield oppressive record there with the linebackers included. So they need somebody to lead them there. And every coach knows that you have to have a strong locker room. In order to succeed because they'll locker room has to be together. And I think he's gonna do either. -- -- floors thanks for the breakdown thanks for joining us Yahoo! Sports talk live and have a great time of the Gene Upshaw memorial golf classic. Well I love late calls will do much of GM -- dead and have.
