The Derek Carr train is potentially on a crash course with another disappointing season
The Las Vegas Raiders are 2-5 on the season and have been disappointing, to say the least. The Las Vegas Raiders spent a lot of money this offseason to lock up their core players and trade for one of the league's best wide receivers, Davante Adams and have not produced any momentum wins.
The Raiders' quarterback Derek Carr has been a nine-year starter and hasn’t won a single playoff game with the silver and black. The Raiders are paying Carr millions of dollars to perform at a high level, and the team is just not getting that this year. There are tons of things going wrong with the Raiders, but offensively, this team is being run by Josh Jacobs and not the man under center. Carr has had bad decision making, overthrows, underthrows, and bad pocket awareness thus far. In the last twenty-two years, the Raiders have had fourteen losing seasons and the Raider nation has had enough.
All in all, we will soon find out what Josh McDaniels and Dave Ziegler decide to do this off-season. It’s hard to believe they will put their careers on the line for a quarterback who has a losing record and no wins when it matters to show for it. McDaniels ultimately needs a quarterback who is young and has a fresh mind to come in and learn his system for him to be successful offensively as a head coach. Will the Raiders look to this year's draft to find the future of the most important position in football or will they continue to ride out this up and down wave with Carr.
