Derek Carr enjoyed joke about him having to learn Jon Gruden’s playbook
Jon Gruden confirmed at his introductory press conference with the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday that he will be calling offensive plays for the team, and Derek Carr knows that means he is going to have a lot of homework to do.
Shortly after Gruden made the confirmation, Bleacher Report put together a funny video of Carr “studying” Gruden’s new playbook. The quarterback had a great sense of humor about it.

Part of Gruden’s gig with ESPN was running his “QB Camp,” during which he worked with top college quarterbacks to prepare them for the NFL Draft. The whole “Spider 2 Y Banana” thing became a running joke as the coach’s favorite football play, and he has embraced the kick everyone gets out of it.
If a report we recently heard about Carr’s relationship with Oakland’s former coaching staff is true, he must be thrilled to have Gruden as his leader now — even if it means he’ll be studying a lot more plays.
