The Raiders had high expectations entering the season and with 10 weeks down, it is nothing but disappointment out of Las Vegas.
The Sin City team currently stands at 2-7, last in the AFC West and on a three-game losing streak.
This weekend they lost, 25-20, to the Indianapolis Colts and it was visually clear how much the defeat shook the team, specifically quarterback Derek Carr.
Carr addressed the media after the game while he held back tears. His body language, rocking back and shaking his head
Carr said. “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 31-year-old continued, saying, “It’s hard, knowing what some guys are doing, like I said, 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.”
Despite the clear discontent, Carr still plans to put in the maximum amount of effort for the team and still loves playing for the Raiders.
The Raiders will have their next chance to turn things around on Nov. 20, when they face a divisional opponent, the Denver Broncos.
