On Wednesday, Derek Carr became unglued about what he heard from Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman on First Take saying about him, so he fired off a series of tweets that included calling them “clowns” and wanting to fight both of them in an Octagon.
“Pretty obvious, Carr is not the the long term answer there,” Kellerman said, via ESPN.com. “You could see that, especially the first half of the season. I mean, I stopped watching Carr a lot the second of the season, who cares about the Raiders second half? But the first half of the season, he looked shell-shocked. He looked like a quarterback who had quit.”
“By the way, I’ve said this about Eli Manning, and even players who are great, you can see — just like different players get called out for taking plays off — you can see where a quarterback don’t want it and Carr didn’t want it,” Kellerman said. “I think Gruden knows they got to move on and the question is can they get anything for [Carr]? Is he a placeholder until they can find the next guy? How long will it take to develop the next guy? And Kyler Murray, if you could grab him in the draft, hell yea.
Carr took to Twitter:
Smith would fire back on social media hours later:
He would save the best for last when he took to Thursday’s edition of First Take and ripped into the Oakland Raiders quarterback.
“We do our job, Derek Carr, go the hell on the field and do your job.”
After signing his monster contract, Derek Carr has lead the Oakland Raiders to two terrible seasons of having a 4-12 and 6-10 record.
