Return of Chucky
All eyes are on Jon Gruden for this one as he makes his re-debut as Raiders head coach. He will be making the rounds, slapping hands in the Black Hole and even more energetic than he usually is (if that’s even possible). The Chucky dolls will be out and the Chucky scowl will be plastered on his face and the crowd will be loving it. This isn’t just another preseason game.
Backup the Carr
EJ Manuel has dominated the battle between he and Connor Cook this offseason to be Carr’s primary backup just as he did last year. But Cook has made a late push, enough to make you wonder what he might do in game action. These two will see almost all the reps. The first question will be who takes the field first. The second is how they will perform running Gruden’s offense.
Martavis Bryant up to speed?
As Gruden said, Bryant is a great talent.
