On the Radio: Talking Colt Brennan

Today at 7:15 p.m. Pacific Time, I'll be joining the Sports Animals on ESPN 1420 Honolulu, Hawaii to talk Colt Brennan and possibly Samson Satele. Tune In!

Satele and Brennan played together at the University of Hawai'i during the 2005 and 2006 seasons. Satele attending from 2002-2006 and Brennan from 2005-2007.

Brennan was added as a fifth quarterback because Bruce Gradkowski has a groin injury and Charlie Frye has an injured wrist. Brennan should see time in the preseason game on Thursday with the third string offense.

The third quarterback position is up for grabs, but Brennan would have to beat out front-runner Kyle Boller and last year's third quarterback Charlie Frye.

If Brennan doesn't make the team, the extra NFL game tape gives him a better chance to catch on with another team or in the UFL.


  1. If you're right about the time, it has to be Bobby Curran you're be talking to instead of the 'Sports Animals' who are usually on the air late in the afternoon. I'll be listening. Thanks for the heads-up.

  2. ? 4:15 PM Hawaii time puts me right in the center of the afternoon show with the Sports Animals. I'd hope the producer would know which show he is booking talent for. Thanks for the comment.

  3. Whooops, my mistake. I saw the wrong time when I looked at this:

    On the Radio: Talking Colt Brennan
    at 8:00 AM

    I now see the correct time. Sorry about that.

    If you read this before you go on the air, I'd be interested to know if Brennan is an Al Davis kind of QB from an intangible perspective i.e. Rich Gannon

    Thanks for taking the time to do this.

  4. No problem. Didn't get a chance to touch on your question, but my opinion is that Al Davis weakness is taking intangibles into account. He doesn't. Gannon was Gruden and Bruce Allen's guy. He won, so Davis rolled with him.

  5. I enjoyed the informative interview and I gotta say, after a brief pause, you answered the question of "Can Brennan make the team?" as well as you possibly could given your listening audience was the whole state of Hawaii lol. If Brennan does indeed end up sticking around, I would love for Bobby Curran (morning guy) to have you on. Nice work, Chris!

Oakland Raiders Swing for the Fences in 2016 NFL Draft

[embed align="center"][/embed] These aren't your daddy's Oakland Raiders or even your younger self's Raiders. If anything, these are your newborn's Raiders or your puppy's Raiders. These are the Raiders we've never seen before. Indicative of the freshness of the franchise was their 2016 NFL Draft. No longer slave to a high draft pick and desperate needs, the theme of the draft for the Raiders was upside. It's as if general manager Reggie McKenzie got so used to hitting his draft picks out of the park that he started swinging for the fences. We'll have to wait a couple of years before we know if he struck out or if he'll continue his Ruthian ways. First, McKenzie boldly went with a safety at No. 14 overall. Kyle Joseph is coming off a torn ACL and fills a major need, but safety isn't a premium position. Only a handful of safeties have been drafted in the first 14 picks in the last 15 years and include names like Ea

The Raiders aren't who we thought they were....they're better

The Oakland Raiders are tired of being the team that will be good in a year or two. The team expects to win now and it is winning now. We thought the Raiders needed more talent. We thought that being in the playoff hunt was a year away for this team, but we were wrong. This isn't the team we thought they were, they're better. On Sunday, they moved to 3-3 on Sunday with a 37-29 win over the San Diego Chargers that wasn't close until the final minute. It was also the Raiders second road win of the season. The last time the Raiders had two road wins by their sixth game was 2011. Before that, a five-year streak from 1998-2002. The Raiders went 8-8 in 1998, 1999 and 2011 and narrowly missed the playoffs each year.  They made the playoffs in 2000, 2001 and 2002. They didn't have a losing record in any of those seasons because teams that can win on the road are usually pretty good. As the season matures, there is more and more evidence that some of the "best-case scenario

Final 53-Man Roster Prediction

The Oakland Raiders will trim their roster to 53 players today. Expect them to make at least two waiver claims Sunday to address needs at defensive back and on the offensive line. As such, there are a couple guys on this final roster who could be waived on Sunday and could subsequently find their way onto the team's practice squad. As is, I've included a list of players who are candidates for the practice squad. There is some positional imbalance on the 53-man roster as I expect the Raiders to balance it out with a few waiver claims. [table id=8 /]
