Quarterback Derek Carr
Well, Sunday's outcome against the Kansas City Chiefs certainly wasn't how Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr expected it to go, but there's still three weeks remaining in the 2017 season. The Silver and Black dropped to 6-7, and will get back to work next week against the Dallas Cowboys, but before that happens the team will reflect on today's loss. Following the game, Carr met with the media to talk about the loss.
Here are the quick hits from his press conference:
Carr shared that the offense simply didn't execute its game plan.
"Yeah, we didn't execute it. It is a word we say a lot and it gets annoying sometimes, but we didn't. Preparation was good, but it was not good enough. Not even close."
**No. 4 reflected on his performance Sunday.
"I am just frustrated with myself. There are going to be plays that you want back, but that is every game. For a whole, I saw the coverage fine. I was going to certain places with the ball that I thought were right and all of those things. At the end of the day, it was not good enough."
The former Fresno State Bulldog talked about the team's inability to connect on some deep passes.
"No, we had some opportunities that we just did not connect on. Just can't happen. There is no easy way to go through this one. This one sucked."
Carr talked about if there was any difference in the Chiefs defense as the day progressed.
"No, they were playing the same coverages. They didn't do anything different, but we were able to get after them and attack them and we were able to connect and make some plays."
He discussed why the offense struggled to get going early on.
"I wish I had the answer because it would have been something that we could have nipped after the first couple of drives, but I will look at myself as I always do and see what I can do better and then see if I can help my teammates along the way."
