within the game. he left the game in that fourth quarter. with 14 tackles, eight of them solo, one of those tackles was the loss. let's take a look now at the playoff picture in the afc. the oakland raiders are tied on top of the afc west with the kansas city chiefs. oakland is in the national spotlight this week as they face the houston texans in mexico city on monday night football. so, there you see it right now, wild card team, plenty more football to go, nine games as we welcome you back in xfinity post game. we'll open with you on this one. raiders go into a city where the altitude is higher than playing in denver. as a player, how do you prepare for -- how does that -- what does it take out of your body? >> it's different. i'm a big man. i was bigger when i play. the less oxygen really affected me. you can never get actually mated to it. you can be there a month and you still won't be actually mated to
it. going into a football game you have to kind of tough it out. it's going to be hard to breathe, there's less oxygen in the air. you're just going to have to kind of tough it out and that's just the way it is. for the big guys, those offensive linemen, defensive linemen, a whole lot of huffing and puffing going on. >> we'll see how it affects both teams in this one. let's now take a look at something that's kind of interesting. it's a list of things, the nfl is warning the raiders and the texans players about while they're in mexico, this is what they told the players. don't leave your hotel. then bh you're in the hotel, don't get the room service. you only drink the bottled water. you don't wear any expensive jewelry, you don't carry around large sums of money. you don't go to the atms when you're down there. for goodness sakes, use caution. there could be a chemical that you don't pass one of our drug tests. ray, how good of an idea is it to play a game in mexico if there are so many warnings and
so many things to be worried about? >> it's a terrible idea if that's what you have to tell the players to do. but this is not about player welfare. this is about figuring out how to tap into the mexican economy. and if they could put a game in at aztec stadium and fill it and generate a ton of money, it will make some owners think, maybe we could put a team here. they could give those warnings eight times a year. but in terms of what this means for players, it's basically you're going to have a lousy time. suck it up. >> yeah, exactly. and, so, that will be on monday night when the raiders take on the houston texans. that will be considered a home game for the raiders. more raiders news, one year ago today, exactly today, the raider smith was banned from the nfl for exactly one year. that's right, one year. so, he's now eligible for reinstatement. ray wolf, with you on this one, how long do you think it will take for the nfl to decide on when they will reinstate him? >> gee, that's an easy one because they don't -- they have
no guidelines and they don't have to follow any. that's the beauty of nfl discipline. it is whatever they feel like it ought to be at any given time. i wouldn't be surprised if they just sat on it for the rest of the year. i also wouldn't be surprised if they waited three weeks. there's no way of knowing and nobody can give you an educated guess because nfl discipline is so monumentally capricious. should he be activated today? i don't know, but i know that the nfl is going to do whatever it wants based entirely on whim, not on either precedent or what the rule book says. they can do whatever they want and they will. >> all right, dennis, i'm going to go on the whim they decide some time relatively soon. yeah, you can play for the silver and black. so, when a player like this who has been away for one full calendar year, all den smith comes back, how ready is he to play or how much is he going to struggle when he comes back? >> he's not going to be ready to
play. he's definitely out of football shape. the question is do the raiders need him right now? they've got a pretty good pass rush and do they want to take a chance on alden. alden is a great talent. he's got some great pass rush move. he's learned from the best. he's played with the best. but, you know, do you want to take a chance on a young man like this who constantly has off the field issues? you hope that he's matured and he's understood after this year that, you know, the money you make in the nfl, you can't do it in everyday life and this is a great opportunity and he should not throw it away. do the raiders really need alden right now? i know one team that could really use him. that would be the san francisco 49ers. we could use an outside pass rusher right now. just put that out there. >> all right, fair enough. but he's a silver and black member right now. hard to believe tom brady has never faced the 49ers in the bay area. he will this weekend and he's sounding off on the comparisons between himself and joe montana.
>> i don't ever seem like he was so spectacular and i think he's in a league of his own. so, and i just -- i'm going to try to help my team and be the best i can be every week. and i feel like i've learned a lot over the last few years with my style of play. like i said, i love being here and competing and hopefully winning. that's what joe did. he was a winner. every time he took the field, felt like the 49ers were going to win. i remember rooting for that team when joe was playing quarterback and you always felt like they were going to win no matter who they were playing, where they
were playing. it was good to be a 49er fan at that time. >> joe brady on joe montana. there's the game, the catch. did he get the ball? the ball, hair rag thing, you're going to be as good as me. i don't know if that's true or not. >> yes, you do. you know whether it's true or not. >> come on, man. let me just tell you this, though. the comparisons will always continue. ray, i'll open with you on this one. how right is brady when he says montana is in a league of his own? >> it's a compelling argument that a lot of people will like to make. i mean, i just don't know how you make those rankings. how do you determine that tom brady is either better or worse than joe montana? if you do it by rings, well, otto graham had more rings than anybody. i think it's an eye of the beholder thing, your favorite
team versus my favorite team thing. >> they're both the elite of the elite. and beyond that, you know, if you want to have an argument about it, do it in a tavern when you can get a beer out of it. >> i agree with you on that point. some people say he's not going to be in joe montana's league. what does he have to do, win more? >> they both got four super bowl championships. the numbers are about the same, mvps. i think they're in the same level, which is a very, very high level. i think they're at the level where tom brady right now is at the level everyone is trying to get to, all quarterbacks are trying to get to that level where he is right now, what he's done in the league. but remember, tom, he's got a lot of really good defense in there, lot of good people around him. he's kept in there. i can remember playing against drew bled sew and him coming into the football game and the rest is history. ij they're on the same level. if you want it argue, like ray said, whoever your favorite team is, but i see him on the same level, very high level. >> there's montana. then for this era, there is
brady. any young quarterback, ray, you could see eventually getting to that? this is all just, hey, he's a good young guy. is there a young quarterback out there? >> i'll be honest with you. two years ago everybody was sure it was going to be andrew luck. but he's not on a good team and it's funny how that works. you know, you can be a phenomenal quarterback, but if you have no weapons, you get buried as though you were bad. derek carr could be. a lot depends on, a, whether he stays healthy and, b, whether the raiders continue their assent. if they level off, no. we're talking about stew of the five or six best quarterbacks ever. so, the odds are against such a notion. >> all right. russell wilson, eli manning? >> they've got a ways to go. in the nfl we judge success by super bowls, you know. so, to win five super bowls, it's hard to do. it's very hard to do. talk about jim kelly, he went to four super bowls. he didn't win any super bowls so
he's not in conversation. but he was a fantastic quarterback. >> that's an absurd standard anyway because it means quarterbacks can single handedly win super bowls for you. if you're on good teams you can become a good quarterback. how many super bowls would tom brady have won if he was drafted by the 49ers with the number of bad teams they put together in the last 15 years? i would estimate somewhere between zero and zero. >> you want to add to that bar stool discussion, you can say who did more good, was it the coaches, belichick who did brady, was it montana who did it? bill walsh -- >> they made each other. >> that will do it. xfinity sports post game. thanks for watching here on thursday. good night. en in
