Answering Your Raiders, NFL Questions

Sports Illustrated's Raider Maven Publisher Hondo S. Carpenter answers the Silver and Black fans' questions each week in our weekly mailbag.
Publish date:

Henderson, Nev.--There is no fan base in the National Football League hungrier for information on their team than the Raider Nation. That is why each week, we offer a buffet of Silver and Black information as we answer your questions and emails as it pertains to the Las Vegas Raiders.

Good afternoon, Hondo.  I love listening to you on Raider Nation Radio.  Listening to you gets me so fired up.  If you had to name one player that has a chance to make the Pro-Bowl in 2021, that might not get thought of, who would that be?  T. Reyes, Los Angeles

That is an easy one because I have a few.  So, in honoring your question and sticking with one, I say Derek Carr.  He is an elite, top-ten NFL quarterback and I believe you will see that on full display in 2021.

As you head to mini-camp this week, Hondo, give me a few names of some guys you are going to be watching super close.  Keep up your work Uncle Hondo, we love you.  Carl Bingham

Can't wait to see Malcolm Koonce.  I am also going to watch Alex Leatherwood and Jimmy Morrissey.  Come on Carl, you new Uncle Hondo was going to focus on the "Big uglies" on the line.

Hondo, is there a trap game on the 2021 schedule that maybe you have us winning, but could be a trap?  Kristi Y.

Kristi, this one is easy for me.  Monday, October 4 at Los Angeles Chargers, the Raiders should win that game.  But the Bolts are a team on the rise, and they can't take this one for granted.
