Third & Short â€“Â Teverly Lazenby, Oakland Raiders
With Wanda Wiedman @WandaW63
Third & Short is NFLFemaleâ€™s mini 10-15 minute podcast. A quick, easy listen. It features our host, Wanda Wiedman speaking with writers and reporters from around the league in one-on-one interviews sharing their teamâ€™s latest news.
Today on Third & Short, sheÂ discusses the blowout 33-13 Oakland Raiders loss to the Cincinnati Bengals and the debut of rookie wide receiver Amari Cooper with NFLFemale Official Fan Reporter, Teverly Lazenby,
Raiders are still building a team with new head coach Jack Del Rio. Quarterback Derek Carr and Amari Cooper need to continue to developÂ chemistryÂ between quarterback and receiver. Cooper was underutilized by offensive coordinator Musgrave who stayed away from the long throws that Cooper could handle.
Loss of both safeties Nate Allen and Charles Woodson will put pressure onÂ frontÂ defense to attempt much needed pass rush in order to rattle opposing quarterbacks. Aldon Smith and Khalil Mack will have to pick up the slack.
