Raider Nation Giving Up On Season Amid Team Struggles

A once auspicious season filled with playoff hopes has now suddenly crashed back down to earth. Raider Nation on social media continues to show displeasure as many have given up on a once promising year.

Besieged Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was booed during yesterday’s game in a loss to the Tennessee Titans. Funny how the tide turns as just three weeks ago many believed Carr had “arrived” in year two under Jon Gruden. Albeit thanks to the emergence of a powerful run game behind rookie Josh Jacobs.

How Quickly The Tide Turns…

Unfortunately, the last three losses for the Raiders have effectively ended their playoff hopes unless there’s an earth-shattering rift in the standings. Those three losses have polarized Raider Nation unlike any other time since the emergence of social media. If you search the “hashtag” for Raiders and Raider Nation, you’ll find people who have given up and many (and I do mean many) are calling for a change at quarterback.

As you’ll see many folks had plenty to say on Carr as that has become the norm.

As you can see folks, Raider Nation never has a problem given their two cents. The “Carr debate” is one thing but the Raiders defense is just as (if not a bigger) much a concern. Moe Moton of Bleacher Report brought it full circle after yesterday’s crumbling defeat. He highlighted that coach Gruden could possibly be more concerned about the defense moving forward more than anything.

Not Much Hope for The Last Three Games…

To better gauge the part of Raider Nation on Twitter, the Raider Ramble ran a poll yesterday. Essentially, we asked how many games will the Raiders in this closing stretch? There was an overwhelming group that voted for just one win. While the majority believed either two or none at all.

The responses were telling to say the least. A few seem to now favor better draft position then winning out these final games.

Regardless of what happens in this closing stretch, Raider Nation will have plenty to say in what has been one of the most polarizing seasons to date.
