Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is all over the news despite the fact the team isn’t even playing right now. The Raider Ramble took advantage of the opportunity and decided to post a poll on social media.
Carr might be the place holder of many passing records for the Silver and Black but that doesn’t seem to matter. It’s the same story every season, all fans hear about is how ‘DC4’ will get traded here or there. In the end, nothing ends up happening. Last offseason, many believed Tom Brady would replace him while others thought Marcus Mariota was going to push Carr out last training camp.
Alas, none of it came to fruition and Carr had another efficient and noteworthy season. Nevertheless, some things never change, and for the veteran quarterback, it’s more of the same with his name attached to rumors surrounding Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.
A recent trending story has the Raiders signal-caller shipped off and in return, Las Vegas would get Watson. It’s been confirmed that Watson has indeed requested a trade, so the story of the trade is half true. By now, we all know about Carr’s accomplishments. Unfortunately, they haven’t translated into team success. In response to these latest rumors and developments, we gave our readers a chance to voice their opinion.
What do fans think of the Raiders quarterback?
In response to a Tweet by CBS Sports in which they asked NFL readers to rank Watson, we decided to ask Raider Nation the same about Carr. As always, our readers didn’t disappoint and had several different opinions varying from elite to bottom tier.
Carr is a good serviceable QB. Top 15. Slides in between 11-15. As much as I would like a better QB. We (Raiders) can’t. The Raiders have a problem. I would seriously give Mariota a shot at been a starter. I still think Mariota can be a good QB.

He’s a top 10 QB. I think some people think team wise when ranking him which they don’t do with others, but as an individual he’s definitely in the top 10 in QB stats not including running.

Out of the 32 starters from 2020, I have him better than only 10 of them. He’s 3rd in his own division. Top 25 QB in the NFL.

For 2020? 12-14 if you absolutely have too I won’t complain about top 10
I’m general? Taking in a QBs entire career + talent?
He’s ok, he’s anything but special
