During the Raiders ’28-14 loss to the Chargers on Monday night, Joey Bosa apparently came to the trash-speaking Derek Carr and really came to him. Carr even admitted how indifferent he was after the game.
“I just thought it was unfortunate that he even thought about saying it,” Carr said. “Maybe he was just trying to get under my skin. Which, he annoyed me. So, good job for him. But it’s not a bad thing either.”

Yes, that’s a bad thing, Derek. If a quarterback needs trash talk from a star player on the opposing team so that he can be fired to start a better game, there is a problem. Derek Carr thinks he can take things from Michael Jordan and personally so he can destroy the whole league. Just play well in the first half and this whole situation goes away.
Bosa talked about what the game plan was after the game.
“We knew once we hit him a few times he really shivered,” he said. “And you saw Christian Covington’s fourth–A quarter sack, he was going to curl up quite a bit in a ball before we got back there. “
“So, great friend, great player. He’s had a great year, but we knew that once we got the pressure on him, he would stop and he’s not as effective as the crowd’s pocket, so that’s the key.”
The Raiders were held just 51 yards in the first half, until they finally turned it on, although it was too late to overcome their deficit.
Also, isn’t this a plan against a great quarterback? Bosa and these chargers make the defensive line clear, hitting an elite pocket quarterback affects his game? Sounds like common sense if you ask us. Derek Carr may be as shocked and terrified as he wants to be, but Joey Bosa doesn’t do what he had to say was wrong.
