Derek Carr looked at one point like he had the potential to be one of the best quarterbacks in the National Football League, but his struggles from last season spilled over into 2018 with a rough game against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night.

It was the first series of the season opener and a long-anticipated look at the Los Angeles Rams' new star-studded defense.

"When you can run the ball like they ran in the second half, it's very hard to rush the passer, " Gruden said, via James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area.

In fact. Bill seems downright pissed over the move - even questioning how Oakland was able to get Derek Carr's mega deal done so quickly but couldn't get one for Mack. Carr threw for 303 yards on 29 of 40 passing.

In addition to congratulating the team on its win, McVay also handed out a game ball to Marcus Peters, who had a pick-six in his return to Oakland, which is where he's from.
