Davante Adams: We don’t have enough guys that are fully bought in

The Raiders lost their sixth one-score game of the season against the Colts on Sunday and an emotional Derek Carr said after the game “for that to be the result of all that effort pisses me off.”

Carr said that he doesn’t think that’s a sign of a disconnect between players and head coach Josh McDaniels, but added that he wishes “everybody in that room felt the same way about this place” that he does. Wide receiver Davante Adams had a similar take about the level of commitment to the one shared by his quarterback.

“Just don’t have enough guys that are fully bought in,” Adams said, via Vic Tafur of TheAthletic.com. “I don’t think people are like, you know, ‘F what [McDaniels] is talking about’ or ‘I’m going against the grain.’ It’s just a matter of executing when it’s time. . . . It means playing a complete game, every minute of the game, giving it everything you’ve got. . . . It’s doing your job and making the plays when you’re called on and get the opportunities, and we just don’t do that at a high enough level right now.”

Adams has aired grievances with the team after other losses and the repetitive nature of falling short late in games led McDaniels to say it feels like a “broken record” when he spoke to reporters. As long as there continue to be more problems than solutions in Vegas, McDaniels, Adams and others won’t be able to play a different tune.

  1. When you seek out just money like Adams or Chandler Jones just did, it sends a bad message within the rebuild.

    Anyone thinking the Raiders would rebuild within the first season, needs to get to college.

  2. Problem is there isn’t anything to buy into. McDaniels is a bad head coach who doesn’t communicate well and doesn’t inspire any confidence. It’s natural to look at a guy like that and have doubts. He’s the team’s Achilles heel and everybody knows that.

  3. They seemed to buy into what Bisaccia was selling. just another in the long line of woopsies for mark davis!

  4. Seems like if YOU were “fully bought in” you would’ve stayed in Green Bay for less money or is it only now that you are fully bought in? You know…now that YOU got paid!

  5. Its hard turning around an organization that has been down for as long as the raiders have been down. Its why McDermott deserves more coaching respect for turning the bills into a contender.

  6. “When you seek out just money like Adams or Chandler Jones just did, it sends a bad message within the rebuild.”

    You both know Green Bay offered more $$$ right? So if it was about being paid wouldnt he of stayed in GB?

    Not a raiders fan but I was hoping they kept Bisaccia. He was actually winning them games and the players really rocked with him. Why they let him go is BEYOND me.

  8. Carr is a good quarterback and he’s bought in to everything raiders but he doesn’t have the killer instinct needed to play this game these days. And as long as he continues his 3 step drop and poses for defenses to clobber him this is what they’ve become !!

  9. The boneheads running the place got rid of Alec Ingold, sure he was a Gruden guy for that system but he has sure “bought in” to what the Delphine are doing now.

  10. Dang auto spell…

    The boneheads running the place got rid of Alec Ingold, sure he was a Gruden guy for that system but he has sure “bought in” to what the Dolphins are doing now.

    How many times does it have to be repeated that Davante took LESS money than Green Bay offered in order to play with Carr?

    Once again, Davante took less money from the Raiders. This fact has been widely and repeatedly reported. My goodness some people are poorly informed.

    Ingold has 6 yards on 5 rushing attempts this season. He’s really tearing it up.

    GB did NOT offer more money. They couldn’t have. The Raiders were 3rd in cap space coming into this season.

  15. Gee, the Raiders all bought in for Bisaccia last year, and made the playoffs.
    As an owner that would tell me everything I need to know. I think that crappy haircut and skin condition are affecting Mark Davis. He has no clue how to own a team.

  16. Lack of DISCIPLINE. That’s the issue. You can call it what you wish,… “not buying in” “lack of execution”,.. take your pick. Ultimately it comes down to doing the job you were instructed to do and how to do it. Discipline.

  17. Well they may not have to buy in to what McDaniels is saying. It was reported over the weekend that Mark Davis would be all in to bring in Sean Payton next season. Buy Rappaport I believe, so maybe there is some credibility to the report.

    Davis might be all in, but Payton won’t be.

  19. worst team in the league. Mark, its time to sell the team to someone who cares about the pride of the silver and black. this has been 20 years of one disaster after another.

  20. “Ingold has 6 yards on 5 rushing attempts this season. He’s really tearing it up.”

    It’s his blocking that helps the passing & run game go, genius.
