Miserable Raiders QB Derek Carr bursts into tears saying he is ‘p***** off’ after the team fell to 2-7 after Colt’s loss and lashes out at his teammates as he ‘wish everyone felt the same’. .. but insists he loves coach Josh McDaniels
The Las Vegas Raiders quarterback let his emotions take over during his post-game press conference after he collapsed and expressed his frustration at losing his team.
The Las Vegas Raiders — who came into the game 2-6 — lost to an Indianapolis Colts team that fired its head coach and replaced him with an ESPN analyst who had no experience coaching in the college game, let alone the NFL.
With former Colts center Jeff Saturday appointed as interim head coach — and first-time playcaller Parks Frazier leading the charge, Indianapolis embarrassed the Vegas Raiders trailing 25-20.

This loss put more pressure on Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels and his team – the latter standing in a competitive AFC West division. That pressure seemed to take its toll on the quarterback, who expressed his emotions after the game ended.
“Sorry I’m emotional. I’m just pissed off about some of the things many of us try to do for exercise. What we put our bodies through to sleep at night,” Carr said at his press conference after a 25-20 loss to the Colts.
“And that this is the result of all that effort pisses me off — pisses off a lot of guys. It’s hard to know what some guys do – like I said – to exercise, what they put in their bodies to sleep at night. Just so we can be there for each other.
Carr performed well, throwing 248 yards and two touchdowns without turning the ball
“And I wish everyone in that room felt the same about this place. And as a leader, that pisses me off, if I’m honest.’
Carr completed 24 of 38 passes for 248 yards and two touchdowns, with 126 yards going to former Fresno State teammate Devante Adams.
Carr also offered messages of support for his head coach and the rest of the staff.

“I love… I love Josh. I like our coaches. They’ve only had success, you know? Much more successful than I’ve ever had.’

He is best known for his success as an assistant coach, having won six Super Bowl titles in various positions with the New England Patriots under head coach Bill Belichick.
