New Raiders OC hoping to bring Eagles offense to the West Coast


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Newly hired Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said Tuesday he thinks the offense he worked with in Phliadelphia could fit pretty well in Oakland.

"We talked about tailoring our system to fit them, but I've got a hunch that a lot of the things we did in Philadelphia will match up real nice and be effective," Musgrave said on a conference call.

Oakland ranked dead last in offense in 2014 with rookie quarterback Derek Carr at the helm. But Musgrave and a few other coaches were attracted to the job because of Carr.

"The presence of Derek was definitely a factor," Musgrave said. "I think a number of coaches have expressed interest in being Jack's offensive coordinator I know he talked to a number of people, and one of the main reasons would be the presence of Derek Carr."

Carr has been able to start every game for the Raiders this season, completing 58.6 percent of his passes while racking up 3,112 passing yards, 20 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. The Raiders are a 14-point underdog in Denver in Week 17.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) 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
(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.

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.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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.
