Jon Gruden gets into it with Derek Carr over poor decision
The Oakland Raiders have enjoyed very little success in Jon Gruden’s first season back with the team, and his frustration with his quarterback has been evident on numerous occasions. That was the case again on Sunday.
On a 3rd down play late in the first half against the Arizona Cardinals, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr chose to throw a low percentage deep ball to running back Jalen Richard, who was double-covered down the sideline. Gruden clearly did not like the decision, and he appeared to light into Carr over it.

Carr is having one of his worst seasons as a pro this year, and that has been surprising to some considering Gruden fancies himself a quarterback whisperer. While the coach should be blamed for some of the struggles Oakland’s offense has had, Carr has made some truly horrific decisions in key situations. Gruden is probably getting tired of that with his team now 1-8.
