Derek Carr still hasn’t learned not to fumble into the end zone

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr made a big mistake today in Green Bay, and it’s a mistake he’s made before.

Carr ran toward the corner of the end zone and appeared poised to score a rushing touchdown. But as he was hit at the 1-yard line he reached the ball out and fumbled through the end zone for a touchback.

It was an identical mistake to one he made two years ago, when his fumble through the end zone with 31 seconds left sealed a 20-17 Raiders loss to the Cowboys.

The Raiders can only hope this mistake won’t prove as costly as that one, but it easily could: The Raiders are trailing 14-10. If Carr had just held onto the ball, they would have been in great shape to score a touchdown on the next play and take a 17-14 lead.

  1. It was the exact same play and the same exact part of the field on the same exact side of the field with the same exact outcome. It was really like deja vu.

  2. Im sure he’ll “put this one on his shoulders” during the post game presser. He’s such a loser. I hope we replace him this offseason,

  3. Carr is an idiott but now the Green Bay REFS are allowing the Packers to continue a play after going out of bounds. So tired of this fixed league.

  4. If that was Rodgers the call would not have been overturned.
    Just look at the replay of the Packers TD … he stepped out at the 5 yd but it’s the Packers …TD stands.

    They must have the cameras in their back pocket too.

  6. That fumble really hurt. We could have gotten the lead. I’m really aggravated with Carr right now. I hope the Raiders come back in the second half, though.

  7. yeah, yeah, yeah … it’s all the refs fault. Don’t fumble the ball and it WAS the correct call. If you can tell he stepped out of bounds you need a job where your eyes can make you some money. No way in heck can you tell if he did or didn’t. If they said he was on the line, the call would have stood. Quit crying!

  8. Two weeks in a row the Lembeau field refs come through … great job NFL.
    Seriously do you really expect the fans to believe games are not fixed?

  9. Carr definitely fumbled. No ifs, ands, or buts.

    There was NOT conclusive evidence to show if Kumerow stepped out or not. That call would have stood either way it would have been called, in or out. It was just too close to tell either way.

  10. The play was clearly on Derek Carr but the officiating has been horrible and clearly in favour of the Packers.

  11. I’m only watching on redzone, and I don’t believe outcomes are fixed, but it sure does look like the refs are giving Rogers as many chances as he needs to score.

  12. Biggest blown call I saw was PI on Raiders for a ball Manute Bol couldn’t have caught. SMH

  13. That’s why I don’t want replays at all.
    It gets the fans more frustrated when they show that it was a bad call and the refs still doesn’t over turn it

  14. He is not a franchise QB. Would make a decent backup. He will not make anyone better around him. He will only succeed if he has nothing but elite talent around him. Everything has to be perfect for him. Time to move on from him. That interception he just threw is mind boggling.

  15. How we gonna blame the refs the Carr fumble changed the whole game our defense was bad but that play even as a fan watching it that was a crushing fumble….

  16. Yes the refs were bad and did favor Rodgers and that’s how a game becomes a blow out. How many times were the Raiders moving the ball and like clock work the refs give them penalties and move them back. Where was the safety when Rodgers got hit in the end zone … no receiver in sight?
    I there are a hand full of plays that were questionable and of course all went the Pckers way.
    Yes the Packers were the better team today but what would happen if all the calls went against the Packers … would they still look good?

  17. Cry babies always blame the refs when they lose.

    The Raiders PI may not have been PI, but it was an OBVIOUS defensive hold with the jersey almost torn off….which would have still been a 1st down which would have just prolonged the inivetable TD.

    Raiders should not have lost their PI challenge, but NOBODY is winning those this year….and there was a make up call when the Packers were called for OPI.

    The Raiders shot themselves in the foot, stop blaming the refs.

    Packer games are simply unwatchable. Every 3rd down the packers get stopped, the refs throw a flag to extend the drive.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    And yet, your obsession just won’t allow you to quit watching… or crying.

    Here’s an idea! Don’t watch the Packers games – watch your own team.

  21. Well dogs and wives are safe in the state of Wisconsin tonight! Packas win. Old Style flowing, venison be eaten all is good in Packerland…….lol

  22. Breaking News….. Aaron Rodgers is not the best QB in the NFC……LOL

    Aaron Rodgers threw for over 400 yards and 5 TD passes, ran for a 6th, had a perfect passer rating, and the Packers won by 18 points. You’re right, he’s terrible….LOL

    I think the Discovery Channel can upgrade their info. The biggest babies on earth aren’t whales, elephants, rhinos. The biggest babies on earth, are in fact Raider fans.

  24. The horrible thing about this play is that it was: A) the last thing you want to have happen and he did it anyway B) Situationally, not necessary. It was 2nd down and we had two plays to get in. C) Extremely high risk and extremely stupid risk to take.
    D) He held the ball in his LEFT hand exposing the ball to almost certainly being knocked out upon a contact that was certain to happen before the endzone.
    E) This was the exact same thing he did against Dallas. The exact same scenario – unnecessary- 2nd down again; ball held in his weaker and exposed left hand running to the right side; ruining our chances if it fails and it did exactly that when he did fail;
    I’m wondering if he truly does not learn from his mistakes. This is a really bad sign. Is he really our long term QB?
