  1. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    I was talking about this year and we've been talking about this week.
  2. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    Then blame the coaches for not making the proper adjustments. They've been killed in the 3rd qtr all season.
  3. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    Based on those numbers you're looking at teams scoring on 47% vs 42% of drives. Slight improvement, but basically shows me the defense is giving up points half of the time no matter what the offense does.
  4. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    Well scoring 3 times in the first half didn't pump them up, so I don't know why that would change. I agree that both sides of the ball can feed off of each other, but once again the "reality" is they stopped them only once all game.
  5. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    I guess this where the separation lies with us then. I see you were hoping for a 3rd qtr score to stay in the game. That's optimistic of you. My realistic side can't stop me from saying, it wouldn't have mattered. The Titans would have just kept trying and kept scoring against our defense. Our current team is not winning any shootouts with just about anyone. As for the 100 million QB, your hanging onto a belief that he's still the highest paid and should perform that way. He's paid about average now and playing about average now, so....
  6. Raider Injury Report (Jacobs won't need surgery, page 8)

    Kid obviously wanted to play last week and wants to play the rest of the year. If he's cleared you let him. Maybe just manage his touches the way they seem to have most of the year.
  7. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    He lost his top 3 weapons from last year. Easiest explanation for the stat drop imo.

    I get that the Steelers are exceeding expectations with 3rd stringers, but you do realize they aren't winning games because of them? They are winning games, against the lowest competition, with defense and special teams. It's also not like we haven't been dealing with injuries all season too. The Steelers have been hit hard on offense, but I think their defense is intact. Where as we have been hit all over at varying times, if not the whole season for some. They are 8-2 in their last 10 games which is amazing, until you look at who they've played. Bengals and Browns twice(3-1), Ravens(L), Chargers, Dolphins, Colts, Rams, and Cards. I give them credit for keeping games close and pulling them out, but that's because of the defense. 48 sacks, +12 turnover ratio, 1 return and 3 defensive scores. While the offense is bottom quarter of the league in all major stats ppg, ypg, rush ypg, and pass ypg. As for us, we dropped the ball in New York. The Jets game was a total failure for the team, but like you say, just one game. However, no one should've been picking us to beat KC or the Titans. Hopeful and wishful, sure. The easy part starts now with 3 games against losing teams. Doesn't mean we will win them. I also think guys are forgetting how tough of a schedule we've played and how much travel they've had. We knew going into the season how difficult it was going to be and how it has to have worn down our players. https://eatdrinkandsleepfootball.com/schedule/strength-of-schedule.html

    So you're comparing one of the worst teams in the league, Cardinals, to one of the hottest teams in the league, 7-1 Titans. Really?
  10. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    Of course I do. However, I'm not oblivious to what they are either. They are not a high powered offense. Does anyone think they are? Our best offensive player and best olineman weren't playing. So I expected them to be worse off than they have been. They actually looked better than they have in weeks. That doesn't mean they were great or couldn't have done better, but the fact is still a fact. I get it, we all want more. I just think my expectations are where they should be and others aren't. If we had lost 49-35 would you feel better? Would that change anything?
  11. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    That's the entire point!!!!!!!! We don't know. None of us can say. You can guess he'll continue to suck. I can guess he'll at least be better than he is. The point remains. You improve the team and just like the Texans and Chiefs that you mentioned, you pull the trigger to get that QB to put you over the top. Tua is the only guy who "might" be available and "might" become that player. I don't think so, but he has a chance. Some act like if I say I want Carr to be the starter to begin next year, that that's somehow a lifetime contract. Unless something I can't predict happens, Carr will be our starter week 1 next year. Whether we add a FA or draft pick is up to Gruden and Mayock. This is the way it is. Until something changes, this is my last word on it.

    And I don't understand why people don't get that we gave up points on up to 75% of drives because our defense is so horrid and then turn around and expect our average offense to match that against actual defenses. Seriously? The Titans had the ball 10 times and two of those were late in the 4th milking the clock up 3 scores, so they weren't trying on those. That means they scored 5 TDs, missed a FG, had the interception to Hurst, and were forced to punt in the 8 drives that mattered. I'm certain that they would have scored on their opening possession, but we got lucky with the pick by Hurst. Either way it counts as a stop I guess. They then ran off 3 straight TDs and missed a FG. The defense was lucky to not give up 31 points in the first half. Everyone references the one forced punt to start the 2nd half, but that was really the only true stop of the game also. They "forced" them to punt late in the game, but they were just milking the clock at that point up 42-21. Their final possession was just running out the clock.

    Great defense, weak schedule.

    Definitely an option for next season. If they don't think he is going to bounce back next year, might as well go cheaper/younger.
