Welcome to Ass Team Of The Week, a recurring feature in which we celebrate the most butt teams the NFL has to offer.
Down 20-3 to the Chargers in the third quarter Sunday, the Raiders put together a 74-yard drive and threatened to make it a two-possession game. A defensive pass interference penalty gave Oakland first-and-goal at the one-yard line. Marshawn Lynch was lined up in the backfield. Yes, this is all very familiar.
With All-Pro defensive end Khalil Mack headed to the Chicago Bears, the Raiders will turn to rookies P.J. Hall and Arden Key to step up along their defensive line. Key, in fact, is in line to nab Mack’s starting job. A promotion! So how is the rookie feeling about this latest roster development?
Derek Carr left the Raiders’ 16-10 loss to Denver Sunday with a back injury after a pair of Broncos defenders sacked him with five minutes left in the game. Although Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio initially believed that Carr was dealing with back spasms, and Mike Silver reported the QB took a knee to the kidney, Del…
The Raiders took care of business with franchise quarterback Derek Carr, who was about to enter the final year of his rookie contract until this happened:
It has to be weird to be a member of the Raiders right now. Your team is moving to Las Vegas but not until 2019, which means there are a couple of seasons to come in the Oakland Coliseum.
The biggest story in the NFL this holiday weekend was Derek Carr’s broken leg. The best Raiders team in more than a decade lost its MVP-caliber QB (“MVP-caliber” being code for “we want to acknowledge how excellent he’s been, but c’mon, Brady’s the MVP and you have to work really hard to come up with reasons he’s…
The best Raiders team since they reached the Super Bowl more than a decade ago is currently without its quarterback as Derek Carr was carried off the field due to an ankle injury suffered while being sacked early in the fourth quarter of an Oakland blowout against the Colts.
A potentially huge moment in last night’s game resulted in a thud, when Raiders receiver Amari Cooper got turned around by a weirdly fluttering long throw, and couldn’t track down what might’ve gone for a big touchdown. Based on the video, some fans are wondering if the ball might’ve clipped a wire on the Skycam. NBC…
With the AFC West lead and an inside track on a playoff bye on the line, Thursday night’s game in Kansas City provided a rare national audience for the Raiders, and for MVP candidate Derek Carr. It went poorly for him, and as Carr goes, so go the Raiders.
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr injured a finger on his throwing hand after he couldn’t handle a snap in the third quarter today against the Panthers.
There are a lot of ways for a quarterback to become famous. You can be the crazy gunslinger; you can be the big-brained maestro; you can be the giant fuck who is impossible to sack; you can be the, uh, guy who ran into a butt. Through the first few weeks of this season, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has begun staking…
I’m unreasonably impressed by this clip, of Raiders QB Derek Carr messing around in practice and hitting Connor Cook in stride with a behind-the-back pass that features a better spiral than anything Ryan Fitzpatrick could muster the regular way.
Deep in New England territory with less than a minute to go, the Raiders had a chance to send the game into overtime with a touchdown. But Derek Carr's pass bounced out of the hands of his receiver Denarius Moore and wound up in the arms of Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork. The interception was the most…
Derek Carr! Please stop sticking your tongue out like that while you are playing quarterback. This is very dangerous!
On Friday night, a story on Raiders DE Justin Tuck moved across the Associated Press wire. It contained the following quote from coach Dennis Allen about rookie QB Derek Carr, emphasis mine:
Maurice Jones-Drew was fortunate enough to kick his own fumble back to quarterback Derek Carr. He definitely knew what he was doing. No fumble luck here. Seriously though, impressive awareness by Carr to watch the play and reel in the ball.
