Nearing the end of a losing season for the 2-8 Oakland Raiders, there appears to be little for their fan base to look forward to, other than acquiring a high draft pick.
However Derek Carr has no interest in it.
“I just want to win. I want to mess up the draft. I don’t want the first pick,” Carr told reporters Wednesday when asked what he wants the offense to accomplish over the final six weeks. “I want to win all these games. I want everybody to be mad at me for that. That’s what I want to accomplish.”
Entering Week 11 with the worst record in the league and pole position for the No. 1 overall pick, Oakland made a a drive in the final seconds of their game in Arizona to defeat the Cardinals. This put them in a 3-way tie for worst record (2-8) with the Cardinals and the 49ers.
Wishful thinking for Carr and the Raiders who take on still have to take on the Kansas City Chiefs twice in their final six games.
The Raiders however already have 3 first-round draft picks on their hands, the results of their trades of Khalil Mack to Chicago and Amari Cooper to Dallas.
