Derek Carr: We have to learn how to win, it starts with me

The Raiders scored on all four of their first half possessions in Sunday’s game against the Cardinals and they appeared to be in comfortable control of the game in the fourth quarter, but that proved to be a false front.

Arizona scored two touchdowns and two two-point conversions to send the game to overtime and the Cardinals won it 29-23 when cornerback Byron Murphy returned a Hunter Renfrow fumble for a 59-yard touchdown. After piling up 258 net yards in the first half, the Raiders only had 66 after the break and their only points in the second half came after a long pass interference penalty.

Plenty of people contributed to the collapse, but quarterback Derek Carr said that turning things around has to begin with him.

“We have to learn how to win,” Carr said, via Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “It starts with me. It always will.”

At 0-2, the Raiders will have to hope that the learning process is a quick one because they’ll find themselves with a lot of ground to make up if they can’t string a few wins together in the coming weeks.

  1. Same ole Raiders till I see something different. All the terrible organizations do this. Should have kept Bisaccia all he did was take a terrible team in disarray to the playoffs

  2. And how is that automatic relationship with Adams working for you Derek? What 2 catches for 14 yards?

  3. Getting Devante Adams more than two catches for 12 yards would be a help in “learning how to win.” I thought he was your best bud. Maybe not for much longer.

  4. Why did Mcdaniels call 3 straight passing plays when they just needed about 6 yards to get in FG position. Especially when Jacobs was averaging almost 4 yards per carry. This is a top down loss.

  5. If the Raiders are prudent, they’ll have given you enough time to figure this out and find your replacement.

  6. And here I thought at halftime the Raiders we going to get their first of 5 wins this season. Losing to AZ is embarrassing.

    Chiefs 13-4
    Chargers 12-5
    Broncos 9-8
    Raiders 4-13

  7. The Raiders are performing exactly how they should be…this should be no surprise to anyone.

    Terrible management of personnel. How anyone thinks signing Devante Adams was the answer when the OL is the consistency of wet TP is beyond me. The organization is chalk full of drama and scandals behind the scenes, Raiders will be finishing in last place.

  8. RUN THE BALL MORE!!! Jacobs was doing great but we start throwing every down giving them a chance.

  9. McDaniels……Warnings were out. The other issue is maturity and leadership there. Carr is terrible as a leader and now you put entitled Chandler Jones in the mix, and you’re going to lack leadership.

    They’re going to read their press clippings all year, even after losses.

    Good thing they beat NE in preseason.

  10. Give it up Carr, tired of your excuses, McDaniels is a joke too…..2 weeks in and already looking up from the bottom, I didnt believe the hype the Chargers and Broncos were getting, but now I do, sad day in the nation….all we can do is hope

  11. Some team is going to luck out into a very good head coach in Bisaccia after the end-of-season firings.

    Why did the Raiders ever let him go in the first place? All he did was win games with that crummy roster.

    Broncos would be very fortunate to win 9 games.
