    ESPN Raiders reporter Bill Williamson predicts Derek Carr will start the Week 1 opener against the Jets.

    Working as the starter, Derek Carr completed 11-of-13 passes for 143 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Thursday's preseason finale against the Seahawks.

    Carr stood tall in the pocket, threw darts all over the field and led the Raiders on four straight touchdown drives against the defending Super Bowl champs. In other words, he was the anti-Matt Schaub (elbow, day to day). In three preseason outings, Carr is 30-of-45 (66.6%) for 326 yards with four touchdowns and one interception. To steal a quote from Joe Theismann, if this were a competition, there wouldn't be a competition. The Raiders must realize that Carr, not Schaub, gives them the best chance to win football games.

    I really wanted him in the 2nd round ... honestly I thought we might take him in the 1st.

    Oh well ... Locker will be better, and I am more than impressed with Mett

    On back-ups.

    Very few starters played the final game.

    Carr will do alright tho, he's showed signs he's got some of the goods.

    Was 1b on my QB list with Bridgewater. I think the Titans would have picked him if he was there in the 2nd.
