Poll Reveals Derek Carr Has Already Earned The Respect Of His Peers

ESPN reporters recently polled 155 players for their opinion on current quarterbacks in the NFL.

Players were asked to name the quarterback they perceived to be the most overrated (Eli Manning), biggest trash talker (Cam Newton), which will win the most Super Bowls over the next decade (Tom Brady), whom they’d like to sack the most (Tom Brady), and the quarterback they would not want as a teammate (Jay Cutler).

Derek Carr stayed off all the bad lists and narrowly finished behind Brady as the quarterback likely to win the most Super Bowls in the next 10 years.

If the Raiders don’t win on Thursday against the Chiefs, someone on the list may be getting a jump on Carr.

Per ESPN Stats and Info, since 1990 only 3% of teams that started the season with a 2-5 record have made the playoffs.

  1. This yr was ruined by a rookie offensive coordinator who is taking WAAAYYYY too long to adjust to what defenses are doing. His sofa should be “let’s see if it will work this time”. Seriously, no deep routes or play action in a west coast scheme? That’s asking for it not to work. Rule #1 in offensive coordinating 101= keep the defense honest. Sad there’s still issues 7 games into the season.
