Dennis Ackerman from BLEAV In Raiders joins the show to preview Las Vegas’ upcoming 2021 season and Monday night’s opener against the Baltimore Ravens.

Dennis talks about the question marks the Raiders have on both sides of the ball coming into the season as well as some bright spots.

He notes the complete overhaul of the defense, including the addition of coordinator Gus Bradley and the signing of defensive end Yannick Ngakoue to improve the pass rush.

To illustrate how the desire to upgrade the defense, Ackerman notes that recently-signed linebacker KJ Wright and Denzel Perryman are already listed as starters.

“They had one of the worst defenses last year…so they can really go only one way.”

The offensive line has four new starters and some unproven skill guys on the outside, including Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards.

He talks about the “love-hate relationship” Derek Carr has with Raider fans and how running back Josh Jacobs can help establish the run.
