Warren Sharp Buries Ex-Raiders QB Derek Carr: He’s The “Worst Inside 10”

To say former Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is having a rough week would be putting it mildly. From Carr’s revelation about his wife “crying” last season to getting obliterated on Twitter all day on Friday, it just kept getting worse for No. 4.

Carr’s words that went viral following his interview with The Fresno Bee’s Anthony Galaviz have been duly covered, perhaps ad nauseum. So, we’ll spare you, folks. This time, it was actual football analysis via film that resulted in Carr getting demolished. This is thanks to Warren Sharp, of NFL on Fox and The Ringer fame.

In so many words, it started quite innocently. Sharp responded to Silver and Black Pride’s Bill Williamson by posing the question of whether to expose Carr’s shortcomings in the red zone by way of film. Apparently, Sharp would do so if five people on Twitter bought his book; you guessed it, more than enough people were willing to pay up.

“The Worst Inside 10”

What followed has many definitions: interesting, shocking, disappointing, and downright pitiful. One of the few quips in football that has held true for generations is that “film doesn’t lie.” As you make your way down each clip, one after another, you can’t help but feel uneasy—nauseous? There are so many wasted opportunities that stand out. Of course, many defend Carr despite his obvious deficiencies, but that’s a whole other rabbit hole we won’t visit today. At the end of the day, football analysis is subjective, but you can’t keep revisiting these clips and expect a different outcome. Besides, Derek Carr is gone; maybe it’s time to let it go?

Raiders Fans React On Twitter

Still, it should shock no one, but Raiders fans had a swift response to Sharp’s analysis. You had your typical run-of-the mill reactionaries make waves on both sides of the aisle. One thing’s for sure: Raider Nation on Twitter never disappoints. For now, judge yourself.
