Jimmy Garoppolo: Raiders Having Too Many ‘Bad Days’

Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo says he’s not going to use injuries as an excuse for poor form.

It was another underwhelming game for Jimmy Garoppolo and the Raiders’ offense in Sunday’s 26-14 defeat to the Detroit Lions.

Jimmy Garoppolo finished the game with 10-of-21 passes for 126 yards. He threw one interception for loss and was sacked six times.

Las Vegas has scored fewer than 20 offensive points in their opening eight games of 2023. Their sloppiness goes back to last season, and they have had at least one turnover in 15 straight games.

The Garoppolo move isn’t working out so far, and the quarterback says he needs to play better regardless of injuries.

“I’ll never make an excuse like that. It is what it is, we’re in the season now,” he said. 

“People don’t care if you have excuses or not, so you just — you’ve got to go out there and play. I’ve got to play better. And it’s just a bunch of little things, man. I mean, it’s frustrating because you have the good days, you have the bad days, but we’ve just got to string them together. We’ve got to come out here and play better. There’s just so much love in that locker room, man. It sucks that we performed like that tonight.”

Star WR Davante Adams couldn’t hide his frustration after catching only one pass for eleven yards on 7 targets against Detroit.

“It’s not hard to maintain the confidence in our offense,” Adams said. “It’s just hard to curb your frustration when you can’t put it together, when you know you should. Just keep trying to get better. Keep trying to get better.”
