  • Derek Carr's Journey Toward Following in His Brother's Footprints

    Fuckin' Schaub. Play like shit in the preseason, and somehow an NFL QB has tendinitis?!? How does someone that throws for a living allow themselves to succumb to a fatigue injury?

    I never liked Schaub to begin with.

    Embracing my homerisms, I don't think Carr turns into the next Tom Brady or Brett Favre, but given the right environment, he has the tools to be successful in the long run. Heading to Oakland, weird as it sounds, looked like one of those environments. He was supposed to sit this season, learning behind the former Pro Bowler, possibly making the jump by the end of this season. There's been some rumors and chatter about Carr showing he was ready now, but even he admitted in interviews learning for a year would be a better situation. Well, now that Schaub is hurt, it's looking like Carr might end up making the jump earlier than expected. Part of me wants him to have a bad game this week to ensure McGloin becomes the starter (he wasn't horrible last year, in all seriousness), but I know Carr's competitive nature won't allow that to happen.

    A few talking heads suggest MJD will have a resurgent season in Oakland, and a good running game would help. The players are there, but can MJD and McFadden stay at a high level all season? Together, I don't see why not...Plus, is there anyone that actually doesn't like MJD? The whole grandfather story, his constant smile, etc...I don't know anyone that doesn't like him.

    This thread could end up with a lot of tears as the season goes on....

    Stupid FanSided piece about why Carr should start now:

    Might as well be the same site...Is Carr gonna' steal the starting job? Come on, people!
    http://www.rantsports.com/nfl/2014/0...ting-job-soon/

    Those are just from the last day...I'm not gonna' bother linking all the other madness out there.

    At this rate, the Carr legacy is almost guaranteed to be one of unfulfilled potential and failures...Sucks, too. Not just from a homer perspective, but both the Carrs could throw the ball and play the position well.

      McGloin looks like a legitimate NFL QB.

      It's really crazy.

        Like I said above, he wasn't horrible last season...I understand why they went after a "legit" NFL QB to help groom and ease Carr in as the future at the position, but I also think they coulda' easily made it through this season with McGloin as the #1 and have Carr come in whenever...Instead, now the Raiders are looking to end up with back-to-back seasons of signing a QB for a shitton of cash, only to see him not finish the season...At least Schaub looks like he'll play in a couple games...

          In all seriousness, him and Streater on the outside is a ball-chuckers wet dream...We'll see how it plays out, I guess.

              Carr is going to be a fine NFL QB, I'm still sick that the Raiders ended up with him. At worst he ends up an Alex Smith, at best who the fuck knows.

                    Rookie quarterbacks in their first meeting with Ryan’s Jets are 1-7, with a 48.3 completion percentage and 61.1 rating, according to the Associated Press. The lone win belongs to Russell Wilson, who in 2012 completed 12 of 19 passes against the Jets for 188 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions.

                        1. How am I supposed to take that article seriously when it bases success on QBR?
                        2. How am I supposed to take that article seriously when it talks about elite QBs and doesn't even mention Joe Flacco?

                          Well played on #2...I was almost going to throw out a serious response...

                          I read it as a bit of sarcasm, but you're right...If Flacco isn't mentioned, it's not really about elite QBs.

                            I think he'll get a few rounds of applause from the home crowd, to be honest. He was a stud high school QB there, and while many hated David Carr toward the end of his time there, the majority opinion is the team failed him more than the other way. Houston's defense played rather well last week, so it should be interesting to see how the younger Carr plays against his second straight complex defense...He wasn't great, by any means, last week, but he wasn't bad either. The offensive scheme wasn't the best, until the end of the game when Carr looked systematic behind center and threw the 30 yd TD to James Jones. I wouldn't be surprised to see at least one more TD from Carr, although if they don't focus on running the ball more, his numbers aren't gonna' be much better than last week.
