What Did the Raiders Say After Losing to the Bolts?

111118_Saying_CMS

On the game…

"I really felt good about our plan. We took the opening kickoff down to the one-yard line. We had another great possession that I think that we mishandled the ball on the third down. I thought we had another great drive that ended in a turnover. We fumbled the ball right outside the red zone. When you are playing the Chargers, one of the best teams in the AFC, you can't do those things. They doubled on us again, we have been doubled up way too many times when opponents score on the last possession of the first half and the opening possession of the second half." – Head Coach Jon Gruden

"I felt we moved it pretty well all day. I think we didn't in the red zone and touchdowns, 0-3 in the red zone – that's terrible. We have to work on that." – QB Derek Carr

On the Chargers…

"They are good. They are a good football team and well put together. They have two of their best players in the locker room right now. I am impressed with them. … Offensively, Philip Rivers and the balanced offensive scheme with these receivers, they are going to be a handful." – Head Coach Jon Gruden

On the sack and fumble in the second quarter…

"Obviously, we don't want (Melvin Ingram) coming for you. It caught me off guard. I didn't want to just go down, I tried to slap him by to keep the play alive. The chances of me doing that aren't very good, but I tried. He put his hand on the ball and got it out. We just had a miscommunication. It should not have looked like that. He made a play." – QB Derek Carr

"It's always frustrating to give up a big play and we don't want anybody to score, obviously. It's definitely frustrating, but you need to have that next play mentality." – LB Marquel Lee

On Philip Rivers…

"He's really smart, we had to prepare for him all week. We got him to call a timeout on one of the plays because we understood what play he was checking to and that comes with preparation." – DT Maurice Hurst
