Raiders QB Derek Carr: I'm sick of losing

Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr the was mad following a Week 4 loss to the Buffalo Bulls as he said he is "tired of losing" after the Raiders lost 30-23 on their home field. The Raiders, who relocated to Las Vegas from Oakland this past offseason, started the season with two wins but now they stand at 2-2.

"I'm sick of losing," Carr said, per ESPN. "I'm sick of working as hard as I do, and as we do, and going out there and losing. I mean, it sucks. Enough is enough. "The things that are hurting us in these close games is not them; it's us.

That's the hard part to swallow." Carr, who had 311 passing yards and two touchdowns against Bills, became the Raiders' all-time leader in touchdown passes but his record as a starter dropped to 41-57. "Me being here, my seventh year, I've seen too much crap," Carr said.

"I've seen a whole bunch of crap, if I'm just being honest with you. "Is it going to take my positivity and my joy away? Absolutely not. I'm going to be me, regardless. But is it OK for me to be a little hot, a little pissed sometimes? Yeah.

And this is one of those moments."

Carr earned appreciation and praise from Raiders coach

Raiders coach Jon Gruden said Carr is a hard worker but the team has experienced some setbacks and the quarterback can't be the only one to blame for the two losses.

"It's never good enough when you lose, he knows that, I know that," Gruden said. "Statistics are great. He's done a heck of a job for this football team, all we've been through with the virus and not having any offseason program and trying to break in two rookie receivers [Henry Ruggs III and Bryan Edwards] and then losing two rookie receivers [to injury].

And not having [offensive linemen] Trent [Brown] and Richie [Incognito]. It's been tough on him. "I wouldn't question one thing about Derek Carr; he's given you everything he's got, and he's performing pretty darn good."

Raiders running back Josh Jacobs says he and Carr are two guys who badly want to win football games. "I can speak for Derek, as well: I feel like we are our biggest critics," Jacobs said. "Every day, we try to come in and work on the little things. It's the little things in this game that make the biggest difference."
