This weekend, New Orleans Saints quarterback Derek Carr played his first live-game snaps with his new team as the Saints took on the Kansas City Chiefs. And even though he only played one series in the game, it sounds like he was happy for the experience.
After the game, Derek Carr made it clear that after all of these years playing agains the New Orleans Saints in the Super Dome, it’s nice to play in the stadium as the home team now.
“It felt good,” Carr said according to the New Orleans Saints official team website. “It was nice to get a couple of situations in there, third down, get some red zone and all that stuff. They don’t tell us how much we’re going to play and all, so, to be able to get a couple of situations in there and throughout the game talk through things with [offensive coordinator] Pete [Carmichael] in certain situations and things like that, in a game-time scenario, it was good. It was a lot of fun. Love being on this side of things in the Dome. I can get used to this place, it’s a lot of fun.”
During his lone drive of the game, Carr went 6-of-8 through the air for 70 yards and a touchdown pass. Saints fans will undoubtedly hope that’s a precursor of what’s to come.
