"It makes you hungry every time you see another team celebrate a championship," quarterback Derek Carr said, via CSN Bay Area. "It makes you dream those dreams you had as a kid, of standing on the stage, holding trophies up. It was fun to watch and I'm happy for those guys. Hopefully they win a whole lot more."
Added running back DeAndre Washington: "You see that and understand that Bay Area fans are the real deal. When the Raiders win, it's a different type of excitement. Congrats to the Warriors, and it definitely inspired us to bring one to the city."
The Raiders own a stacked offense behind Carr, Lynch, Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree and a stellar offensive line. If the defense improves upon last season, the Raiders should be considered one of the few AFC foes with a chance of dethroning the New England Patriots.
