There is reason for optimism in Raider Nation because Derek Carr is now the starting quarterback of the Oakland Raiders. The 1st-string offense looking horrible until Carr polished it up in the preseason finale had much to do with it. And while Carr is the right man for the job of leading the offense, the Raiders have one Moore move to make. (10 puns intended)
That move should be Denarius Moore moving to the No. 1 receiver position from No. 3 going into the preseason finale. Yes, the same guy that came into to 2014 on the roster bubble was Carr’s main partner in polishing the offense. Moore helped Carr out with three catches for 58 yards including a a one-handed 3rd-and-10 conversion over Richard Sherman and touchdown catches of 11 and 36 yards.
Receivers Andre Holmes and Greg Little helped quarterback Matt Schaub stink the stadium up with dropped passes. Then starting receivers James Jones and Rod Streater wore opposing corners for blankets and couldn’t take them off. So it only makes sense for the man that helped the man become the man be the man’s main man.
Did you understand that?
Okay, Moore should be Carr’s No. 1 receiver.
