Bottom Line

Carr is by far the best rookie quarterback as he has shot it out with the likes of Philip Rivers to lose by only three points. And I have to mention that Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski missed a 53-yard field goal he usually makes in the game. And against his record eight touchdowns through his first five game, he should only have three interceptions instead of five.

Two of those interceptions were on target and went right through the hands of his intended receiver before being picked. So instead of a quarterback rating of 81.8 he would and should have a quarterback rating of 88.4 but it is what it is. Then you have all the drops he has suffered through but there’s no need for excuses because Carr has outshined his class anyway.

I have to give Raiders owner Mark Davis credit for this pick because he wanted it in the first round.

I’m glad the Raiders have outside linebacker Khalil Mack but Carr is worth a 1st-round pick!

Just win baby!
