Derek Carr says Raiders’ offense had a mistake-filled practice


Raiders quarterback Derek Carr says he and his teammates weren’t even close to good enough on the practice field today.

“The things we did today were just silly. Unacceptable, but silly. The first three days of this thing we’ve been hitting on all cylinders. Today, not so much. So I look forward to hitting the bed and going back to it,” Carr said after today’s Organized Team Activities.

Carr didn’t sound overly concerned, as he and new Raiders offensive coordinator Todd Downing are still working on getting on the same page.

“He wants me to be an extension of him on the field. Me and coach Downing, I’m still trying to work through exactly how he wants it,” Carr said. “I’m trying to do a better job of not doing too much with all the leeway he’s giving me. And the first four days, even today, I’m catching myself doing too much. That’s why I love OTAs, it’s the perfect time to experience that and get those kinks ironed out. I had to tell him today, ‘Sorry I shouldn’t have done that.’ And he continues to just encourage me and say, ‘That’s why we’re doing it now.’ It’s a great learning opportunity.”

The Raiders hope to get all those mistake-filled learning opportunities out of their system in the next three months.

    ^^^^Typical patsy, sitting around thinking about everything Silver and Black.

    Get used to it, buddy.

    The patsies caught a lucky break last year, don’t count on the same fortune in 2017.

    That’s two SB trophies that should belong to Oakland.

    Last year with Carr and the worst tucking call in football history derailed the other.

    Two bullets dodged, chowds.

    Carry on.

    Funny all the Raider Hate on this thread – your tears are delicious.

    Patsy fans have nothing better to do than hit refresh, followed by a nice 👎🏼.

    RAIDER NATION is all the chowds can think about.

    I love it.

    Carry on.

    As a Cowboys fan I can say in all honesty I hope the Raiders do well again this year. The league is better off that way.

    He reminds me of Kobe not satisfied with good , wants to get better every year and every practice

    This could be a problem this year, Carr is a very cerebral player…and with all this “leeway” he may try to control too much….but it might take one step back in order to jump forward in the years to come

    Notice all the Raider hate from the Patriot fans? It’s because they view us as a threat.

    Raiders 7-9 in ’17, Del Rio on the bubble. Book it.
