  • Raiders QB Derek Carr on Jack Del Rio firing: 'It hurts'

    but it was a bit shocking how quickly owner Mark Davis operated.,Most everyone wasn’t surprised to see Raiders coach Jack Del Rio get fired following his team’s 30-10 loss to the Chargers Week 17

    Del Rio didn’t even have a chance to make it to the postgame press conference before Davis informed him that he would not be retaining his services for 2018. And some players even found out via other players’ phones before hearing it from anyone within the organization.

    Such is life in the 21st century, but as expected,Womens David DeCastro Jersey, Del Rio handled the news like a man while offering his final statement to media Sunday evening. Del Rio spent a good chunk of time re-establishing a winning culture in Oakland and did so successfully in 2016 only to see it squandered away by a myriad of circumstances in 2017.

    Del Rio’s firing comes just one day after Chris Mortenson and Adam Schefter broke the news that Davis would be pursuing former Raiders coach and current NFL analyst Jon Gruden for the head coaching position in 2018.

    However, throughout it all, the Raiders became a very close-knit bunch that quarterback Derek Carr and several others have often referred to as “family.” As such,Authentic Vince Williams Jersey, Carr was naturally crushed when he heard the news of Del Rio’s termination Sunday.

    “It hurts. It is a sucky thing because we talked about it earlier this year. He is family. You spend so much time with him. I met with Coach Del Rio every Thursday morning since he has been here. We have spent time together at his events and we have created a bond. That’s a bond that will last forever. It hurts because something sucky happened to someone you care about. We weren’t good enough for him. We have to take our ownership as players. That’s where we are right now.

    our job is to come back better and hungry. We have been through some hard times together and this is right up there with it. We are hungry,We are kind of angry that we let it get to that. We are upset at ourselves. We understand the business part of it,Womens Vince Williams Jersey, but as players, I talked with [DE] Khalil [Mack], angry a little bit in this instance.

    There is nothing you can do about it right now. The wound is still fresh, now looking back on it, but as we move forward it will scar over. It will be there, football and he has helped me grow so much as a player in my knowledge and understanding of the game. We had a great talk this week, but you have to move on. I love him and I love his family. They have been great to me. We’ve had some great talks about life, in our Thursday meeting. We didn’t see this coming. We were excited to just continue to compete and he would let me know that we were going to fix the little things that we need to fix to get this thing back right.
