You can draw and -- in the whole ball like you want an older. And execute that apple here. Shane -- gonna have to join us here in the wheel house and on a five similar game you sign on Saturday with the Texans. It is far as the raiders are concerned that the direction that they're going in and as you see that as a veteran and you were there around obviously for a lot of good years went to a Super Bowl 000 what do you see there. You know it it's it. Not -- last year it was huge turnover you know and it personnel and then you know coaching staff and Robert over the huge turnover and I think they've done just about. As much as the election already this year you know and and their own. In other. There can be at their locker room and different amateur partner that I mean you also sponsor of Abacha part of grunt work player aggregate shoots you know not not a lot of store it is a lot of guys who got the job on you know -- Brandon Myers. You know -- -- city all the guys and I got contractors you are so right now and then you know you never know that's gonna go -- him. You know when he got a better at all Islamic -- follow him into the sponsored peace since. That -- and it didn't feel it you know it's it's. I'm gonna talk to Reggie you know the planned. Though a lot of people outside an -- that you know -- got planned and hopefully that it worked out well. You mentioned Carson chain and it's all everybody's talking about and sound whether you know caught restructure. Do you make natural prior move him up the food chain there and you're obviously very close your kind of like the fourth quarterback on that team all you were here. Oh what what do they do with Carson Palmer do you think for for the soft -- and. I mean you know it in my opinion. You're -- -- -- where I mean it talks these very -- football player Smart football where you. You know that there -- Want to miss out last year -- acceptable stuff early but it also guys that work. On the other end -- not the forgotten -- because other lives and other remote to either turn -- Heard them argue in the timing not only in our culture and then another Abacha style Arctic are your your best. Now whether he's willing to restructure after all the turnover I don't know that I haven't spoken -- -- you know the area from. It's one of those things you know what -- about internal prior and practiced without seeing him in game then yes you don't have a lot of athletic ability. And it goes sixty games well it's yet to be seeing them. And it'll definitely isn't there -- They should not receive new. Dennis Allen he's -- an -- guy as well and he's got a tough task ahead of women in you're in that locker room how do you think he's gonna handle this. Now I don't know well I think you're still in the process as coach and and and then figure that part alchemy goes. Million different according to one here and want to outlook to -- -- -- -- talk about. You know golf was secondary to the current quarter -- an -- -- -- and older compared to work out and figure out a long way. I got some good and wholesome. Some good resources eureka which competent and so and you know -- -- to -- your outlook I'm rhetorical. Or your first three years and NFL -- little spoiled AFC west AFC west AFC west. AFC title game of the -- you game the Super Bowl Dolan I know you you chose the Texans a large part if you wanna go home the -- yeah I mean you're picking it seemed with the acquisition of Ed -- chain. You could go back to the Super Bowl this year. In other you know just being here Allman and then. Inspectors -- a signed copy a little bit more attention to it. Not that I have. All the text it would have been involved around the inbox column in the past and they're -- -- -- -- you know there. That computer -- the last year's playoffs and advancing by. You know it's been like a lot of -- partnership together. But you know it I'm I'm still. Brand new that the thing. I'm Margot and actually console or canals and the guys at retirement in all -- a culture that though. What to expect from each other and solar atmosphere on you know going to so I really don't know the organization. You know not nearly as an Oakland after thirteen years. Something Austria I'm excited to do it. Is Jane there's a lot on Twitter in the text just thanking you for all your time in and obviously be a raiders -- a lot of love for you but.
