His nose was so close to the grindstone, Derek Carr did not notice the subtle but meaningful part of his transition to this new life.

Maybe it's because there was so much newness — new city, new franchise, new teammates, new coaches, new offense, new verbiage, new climate, new, new, new, new. His job is too important to let that novelty linger, to let it eventually become a crutch or excuse, so Carr buried himself in the work of making it all feel familiar.

It was Heather Carr who pulled her husband’s focus away from the details a few weeks into his first training camp with the New Orleans Saints so he could see the broader picture. When they made the seismic decision to uproot their lives and move to New Orleans, it wasn’t just for money or glory.



Look how much fun you’re having again, she said.

"She said it to me, and I was like, ‘You know what? You're right,’" Carr said. "I really enjoy this building. What they have created here is special."

Now it's all about how they respond.

Titans were two blown plays away from winning this thing.

My view is that week one is now essentially preseason game 4 with starters so expect a slop-fest.

However there are serious concerns that can be exploited and it's all fun and game now but if those aren't cleaned up it'll be a long season...

Excited to see how this team bounces back on the road in prime time against a division foe.

It's fun for Loomis, too! This is the beginning of a new special era. I can feel it.

I've been so excited this entire Offseason about getting him and then that play.

Shid. Freaking run. Run!
