Raiders QB Carr on Sparano: 'I love him to death'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:52 am ET) Raiders rookie Derek Carr is hoping to play well in the last two games for his current coach and perhaps the coach of the future.

Carr has been a rare bright spot on a 2-12 team. He has played for the dismissed Dennis Allen and for current coach Tony Sparano. The Raiders are expected to make plenty of changes in the offseason, but Carr hopes Sparano is not a casualty.

"Right now, I am focused on playing my heart out for [Sparano] because I love him," Carr told ESPN. "I love him to death. I love playing for him. He pushes the heck out of me, and I love it. That's how I like to be coached. ... Not knowing [what the future holds] is hard, but I am grateful that I do get to play for him now."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Raiders jumped out to an early lead on the strength of the running game but watched the Chiefs score 17 unanswered points in the late third and early fourth to take the lead. Carr was able to march his team down the field in the waning moments of the game, capping an 80-yard drive with a nine-yard touchdown pass to James Jones with less than two minutes left to put the Raiders back in front. The win snaps a 16-game losing streak for the Oakland franchise. They'll look to make it two in a row when they hit the road to face the Rams in Week 13.

Raiders QB Derek Carr 'not worried at all' about quad injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2014) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr sustained a quad injury early in Sunday's loss at San Diego, and he was limited in Monday's walkthrough practice, reports ESPN.com. But Carr said he "played the whole time with it" and is "not worried at all" that he'll be hampered Thursday against the Chiefs.

Carr threw for 172 yards in the Week 11 loss, his third-lowest total in the 10 games he's played this year.


Derek Carr struggles, Raiders lose 16th straight game


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr completed just 16 of his 34 pass attempts for 172 yards with no interceptions and no touchdowns in his team's 13-6 loss to the Chargers in Week 11.

The 0-10 Raiders have lost 16 straight games dating back to last season, and the offense had a lot of trouble moving the ball on a San Diego defense that was much healthier coming out of a Week 10 bye. Carr set the tone for the game when his opening snap was fumbled and recovered by the Chargers, who scored the only touchdown of the day two plays later.

The Oakland quarterback spread his 16 completions around to eight different receivers but failed to throw for 200 yards for the fourth time in his last five games.  The Raider will continue to search for their first win Thursday against the Chiefs.


Raiders QB Derek Carr throws two TDs, two INTs in Week 10 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr threw two touchdowns and two interceptions during a 41-17 loss Week 10 vs. Denver. Carr completed 30 of 47 passes for 192 yards.

Carr kept the game close early on and had Oakland up 10-6 after connecting with Brice Butler for a 5-yard touchdown with 11:19 left in the second quarter. However, the Broncos would score 35 unanswered points behind five passing touchdowns from Peyton Manning and never look back.

In fact, Carr had just 96 passing yards until the team's final drive, which was capped off by an 18-yard touchdown pass to tight end Mychal Rivera.

The Raiders are back in action Week 11 at San Diego. Carr had a career-high four touchdown passes Week 6 against the Chargers.


Raiders QB Carr claims he's not worried about pass-rushers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) Raiders rookie starting quarterback Derek Carr believes he will hinder his own performance and that of his offense if he concerns himself Sunday with Denver standout pass-rushers Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware despite their combined 17 sacks in eight games.

"Oh, you know where they are," he told ESPN. "It's just like playing J.J. Watt, you know where he's at. You know where those guys are, but I won't be looking at them. I'm not helping us if I do that.

"You kind of just have to know, based on your rules, based on the protection, based on what blitz they're bringing, you know what's going on. There are a lot of things going on in your head where you're not even looking at, so I never look at it ... I try to act like it's 7-on-7, that's just my mindset. ... I'm just out there and I'm trying to complete passes, and then if I get hit, I just get hit."

Carr has been sacked just eight times in eight games this season.


Raiders QB Derek Carr tosses two Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr threw two touchdowns Week 9 against the Seahawks.

Carr completed 24 of 41 passes for 194 yards and two scores. He also threw two interceptions during the contest. Carr had a rough stretch early on. Near the end of the first quarter, he threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown. On the next drive, Carr threw his second pick. He managed to settle in after that, throwing two 1 yard touchdowns to Mychal Rivera.

Carr will look for more Week 10 against the Broncos. 


Raiders QB Carr puts up numbers Sunday - but not points


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr needed a garbage-time touchdown to avoid putting just six points on the board Sunday in Cleveland, but his numbers were impressive when the final tick went off the clock.

Carr finished 34 of 54 for a career-high 328 yards and no interceptions. He began the game by rolling right and hitting Andre Holmes for 16 yards and also found Holmes and Kenbrell Thompkins late in the second quarter for a combined 46 yards to set up a field goal. But he struggled most of the fourth quarter until hitting Holmes on a 10-yard screen for the score.

He will attempt to lead his team to its first victory of the season in Seattle on Sunday.


Raiders' Derek Carr gets shut down Week 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was shut down by the Cardinals Week 7. 

Carr completed 16 of 28 passes for 173 yards. He was unable to throw for any touchdowns, but also did not turn the ball over. Carr took just one sack during the contest, losing nine yards. He also had two rushing attempts, gaining two yards. Carr had a tough time getting things going. He tried to force balls to James Jones and Darren McFadden, but neither was able to get much done with their chances. 

Carr will take on the Browns Week 8.


Raiders will have Derek Carr Week 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is active Week 7 against the Cardinals.

Carr came into the game dealing with ankle and knee issues. He was considered probable, and was always expected to play. 


Key Raiders Tuck, Reece deemed questionable for Week 7


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Defensive end Justin Tuck (knee) and fullback Marcel Reece (quad) have been designated as questionable by the Raiders for their Sunday game against Arizona.

The other questionable player is linebacker Khalif Barnes (quad).

Those three are in better shape than wideout Vincent Brown (hamstring), cornerback Keith McGill (groin) and free safety Usama Young (foot), all of whom have been ruled out.

The trio of probables is headlined by quarterback Derek Carr, who is all but certain to play despite ankle and knee issues. Defensive end Benson Mayowa (knee) and linebacker Sio Moore (ankle) are also probable.


Raiders' Derek Carr able to practice in full Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was able to get through full practice Thursday.

Carr is coming off an ankle injury, but was able to play Week 6. He performed well, tossing four touchdowns during the contest. Carr will be tested Week 7 against the tough Cardinals defense, so it's imperative that he's 100 percent for the game. 


Raiders' Carr won't play scared against Cardinals' Peterson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has expressed tremendous respect for Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, but he will not shy away from throwing the ball in his direction Sunday.

"It's not an arrogant thing," Carr told ESPN about challenging premier corners. "It's not one of those things at all. Trust me, I know where they are and I'm very careful about where we're throwing at, what routes we're throwing.

"Patrick Peterson, obviously, is one of - it depends who you talk to - is the best, or one of the best, corners ... in the NFL. You just turn the film on and you're like, 'Wow, that guy plays corner? He looks like a linebacker and runs a 4.1' or whatever. He's a great player. I'll know where he is every snap, but to me, I have to go through my reads."


Not a big enough role for Brice Butler


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) Raiders wide receiver Brice Butler made his presence known in Week 6 against San Diego, catching three passes for 64 yards and a touchdown. But in terms of targets, he was still the third wheel in a receiving corps led by Andre Holmes and James Jones.

And that was on a career day for rookie quarterback Derek Carr.

Carr won't always be so good, and the big plays won't always be so easy to come by. Remember, 47 of Butler's yards came on his touchdown grab in the third quarter. Remove it from the equation, and he was the same peripheral contributor he has been all season.

Jamey Eisenberg doesn't rank Butler especially high in his Playing the Waiver Wire column, and I agree with that assessment. He doesn't have a big enough role in a consistently prolific passing attack.


Derek Carr's big day could have been bigger


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, who on Sunday became the first Oakland rookie to throw four touchdowns, could have had an even bigger performance against the Chargers. Carr's receivers dropped five of his 34 passes.

"As many balls as I overthrow or miss at practice, I'm never going to be one to rip into somebody," Carr told ESPN.com. "They're professional football players; I don't need to go console them or anything like that. I just go, 'Hey, you're better than that,' and those kinds of things. They already know before I even get to them."

Carr completed 18 of 34 throws for 283 yards with one interception in the 31-28 loss to San Diego. He faces the Cardinals in Week 7.


Derek Carr makes most of weapons


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) Making a quick return from a sprained knee and ankle, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr turned in the best performance of his rookie season Week 6 against a Chargers defense that had been the talk of the league, lighting it up for four touchdowns.

But he didn't do it alone.

Wide receiver Andre Holmes deserves much of the credit for the performance. Getting extensive playing time again after shining with backup Matt McGloin in the last quarter-plus of Week 4 against the Dolphins, Holmes beat the defense for a 77-yard touchdown in the first quarter and had a 6-yard grab in the back corner of the end zone in the fourth.

Of course, Carr also had a 6-yard touchdown pass to James Jones in the second quarter and a 47-yard touchdown pass to Brice Butler in the third. All four throws were right on the money.

He completed only 18 of 34 passes overall, though, which is cause for concern, but Carr might have enough playmakers in the receiving corps to have some low-end appeal in two-quarterback leagues, particularly if Holmes stays on the field.


Raiders QB Derek Carr throws career-high four TD passes


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr entered Sunday with only four touchdowns passes on the season. He doubled that amount with a career-best four-touchdown performance in a Week 6 home win over the Chargers. He became the first Oakland rookie to throw for four scores.

Carr got off to a fast start, connecting with Andre Holmes for a 77-yard touchdown on his first pass attempt of the day. He found James Jones in the end zone from 6 yards out in the second quarter. He hooked up with Brice Butler for a 44-yard touchdown strike in the third quarter and Holmes again for a 6-yard score in the fourth quarter. An interception to Jason Verrett with 1:13 remaining in the game proved to be costly for Carr in a 31-28 defeat.

Carr compiled 283 yards through the air while completing 18 of 34 passes. He added four touchdowns and one interception, registering a 107.8 passer rating. Carr will look to bounce back Week 7 at home against Arizona.
