Quarterback Derek Carr
The Oakland Raiders suffered a tough loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, and quarterback Derek Carr wasn't thrilled with the outcome. Monday morning Carr joined 95.7 The Game's J.T. The Brick on air to talk about the loss and how the team will need to bounce back from it. He's hungry to win and has already shifted his focus toward Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Here are the quick hits from his time on the air:
**Carr shared how the team felt after the first drive ended successfully and was executed quickly.
"We felt great, we came out fast, [and] we started fast. That's something we talk about all the time, so we were happy to do that, but after that we didn't play our best football."
He expressed that he holds himself to a higher standard and knows the team is capable of more.
"All I know is that we didn't play at the level we know we can play at, and that hurts. We've been able to score a lot of points this year, and to only score that many yesterday is not good enough. That'll never be acceptable as long as I play here, and it definitely wasn't. We're going to get back to work."
The third-year quarterback talked about his relationship with Amari Cooper and how their bond is growing all the time.
"I feel like Coop and I, our relationship is just growing every week. We're able to talk about football, we're able to talk about things we're doing at practice together, those kind of things, getting extra reps. I think we're starting to find a little rhythm and hopefully we can continue to do that."
**Carr knows that the team needs to learn from the loss, and is ready to get back to work for Week 7.
"You've got to put it behind you quick, a win or a loss. You've got to celebrate it or you're going to feel kind of crappy after a bad loss in the division, and that's okay. If you don't feel that way there's something wrong with you, everybody should feel that way. It's a new day and I've already started on my preparation for Jacksonville, I actually started on them last night because that's how hungry I was to get this taste out of my mouth. You watch the film, and get over it, and move on to Jacksonville, and that's what I've done."
He discussed Jacksonville's defense and the amount of young talent they have on the roster.
"They've very vast, very athletic, they've got a veteran core of guys that lead that defense, and the young guys are out there running around making plays. They've got a really good defense, they've got a lot of talent, and I think [Head] Coach Gus Bradley is one of the… not only one of the best coaches schematically in those things."
