A handful of dire quarterback news came down across the wire on Wednesday, setting up for a surprising end of the regular season and very interesting offseason. First and foremost, the Las Vegas Raiders benched Derek Carr for the remainder of the season and the QB has subsequently stepped away from the team, presumably having played his last snaps in silver and black.

Charles Robinson & Jori Epstein kick off this mid-week podcast reacting to this news out of Las Vegas and how it would set up nicely for pending free agent QB Tom Brady to reunite for one last ride with his former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, now the head coach of the Raiders. Also, with Carr most likely done in Vegas, what teams would make sense as a landing spot for the 31-year-old passer?

In other QB news, Charles & Jori discuss the latest concussion suffered by Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa, what it means for his future and after that, analyze Ron Rivera's announcement that Carson Wentz would return as QB1 for the Washington Commanders.

Afterwards, Charles & Jori return to Monday's news of the Denver Broncos firing first-year head coach Nathaniel Hackett and what it means for the team going forward. How will the new coaching candidates react to the tumultuous first year under the Walton/Penner ownership group and what sort of information would they need before agreeing to coach Russell Wilson.

Finally, they close out the podcast looking ahead to three of this weekend's biggest matchups: the Carolina Panthers traveling to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Baltimore Ravens hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night and the battle between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football.
