Jimmy Garoppolo Has ‘A Bad Day’ As Las Vegas Raiders Lose To Detroit Lions


All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams was almost speechless during the Las Vegas Raiders’ 26-14 loss to the Detroit Lions on Monday night at Ford Field, while quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo gave a witty summary of his performance.

The Lions outgained the Las Vegas offense 486-157, so it was that kind of game.

“You have good days and bad days,” Garoppolo sighed. “Today was a bad day, there’s no sugarcoating it. It is what it is. So, I’ve just got to play better. Myself, I have to play better. A bunch of little things that will solve a lot of problems.

“It starts with me. We’ve got to be better, and we will be.”

Following a career-high-tying six sacks, an end zone interception, and a 10-for-21 passing performance for 126 yards, Garoppolo’s passer rating of 46.9 was the lowest of his career in a start.

And with nine interceptions, Garoppolo leads the NFL. He was making his comeback after missing last week’s loss at the Chicago Bears due to a back ailment sustained the week before. This despite missing two and a half games due to a concussion that kept him out of the Raiders’ Week 4 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Josh McDaniels, the coach of the Raiders, stated, “We can’t win if we give the ball away, period,” stressing that he wasn’t singled out for criticism of Garoppolo.

Adams, on the other hand, had just one reception for 11 yards on seven targets, and according to ESPN Stats & Information research, his 14% catch rate tied for the lowest reception percentage in a game with five or more targets in his career. Garoppolo did search for Adams deep, but he missed four throws that were off-target.

“Honestly, I don’t know what to say at this moment,” Adams said softly. “I truly don’t. I wish I had the words to say something that’s not going to get blown up in the media and taken out of context, so I’m going to just, I truly, I just don’t know.”

During the last four games, Adams has only 142 receiving yards, which is the fewest in a four-game span since the 2015 season, when he was in his second year in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers. Adams expressed his frustration.

Additionally, since Week 3, he has not caught a touchdown pass.

“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.”

Garoppolo found it difficult to lose his bearings when playing the Lions.

Take into consideration that on throws of 15 air yards or more downfield, Garoppolo was only 2 for 7 when it came to interception. He was 1-of-7 on throws beyond the numbers, 3-for-10 on second, third, and fourth downs, and, in the end, only 4-of-12 targeting receivers, including 1 for 7 against Adams.

In actuality, during the first half, no receiver touched the ball.

The game percentage of 43% is the highest rate of pressure Garoppolo has experienced in a game since he saw a 45% rate in Week 8 of the 2020 season against the Seattle Seahawks when he was with the San Francisco 49ers. The Lions pressured Garoppolo on 12 of his 28 dropbacks, including eight of 11 in the fourth quarter.

“I’m fine physically, but I’m a little pissed off from the game,” Garoppolo stated.

After becoming a free agent for three years and $72.75 million, Garoppolo, who has been injured frequently, had surgery on his left foot in March. He was signed to replace nine-year starter Derek Carr.

Prior to sustaining the concussion and back problems, he was placed on a “pitch count” during training camp and missed the Raiders’ offseason program on the field while recovering.

When asked if he still felt like a catch-up player, Garoppolo shrugged.

“I mean, I’ll never make an excuse like that,” he said. “It is what it is. We’re in the season now. People don’t care if you have excuses or not, so you’ve got to go out there and play. I’ve got to play better. It’s just a bunch of little things, man. Man, it’s frustrating.

“You have the good days, you have the bad days, but we’ve just got to string things together. I’ve got to play better. There’s just so much love in that locker room and it sucks that we performed like that tonight.”

The offensive play-caller for the Raiders, Josh McDaniels, admitted that he needed to keep adjusting his scheme.

In response to a question about whether it would entail thinking about switching quarterbacks, McDaniels responded, “I’m not going to talk about that right now.”
