The quarterback apologized for being emotional after another Raiders loss.
After a 25-20 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr struggled to hold it together at the podium during a postgame interview.
He apologized for being emotional after the loss but his concerns with the team are understandable.
The Colts came in with an interim head coach in Jeff Saturday, although Saturday was an incredible player, he’s a first-time head coach that hadn’t coached at the professional level.
Carr stated: “I love the Silver and Black and I'm going to give it everything I can every time I go out there.
“And I can't speak for everybody, for every man, what's going on in their head, but I can tell you what's going on in my head and I'm going to give it all that I can, every single time.”
Carr was then asked if there is a disconnect between him and Josh McDaniels, the teams head coach.
He replied: “I don't think so. I love Josh. I love our coaches. They've had nothing but success. Way more success than I've ever had. And I'm sorry. Sorry for being emotional
“I'm just pissed off about some of the things, you know, that a lot of us try and do just to practice. What we put our bodies through, just to sleep at night.”
The Raiders are now 2-7 after losing three straight games. Playoff hopes have been shattered and the team morale is definitely low.
Carr continued: “It's hard, knowing what some guys are doing ... just to practice. What they're putting in their body just to sleep at night. Just so we can be there for each other.
“And I wish everybody in that room felt the same way about this place. And as a leader, that pisses me off, if I'm being honest.”
Their next game is against a division rival, the Denver Broncos.
