Derek Carr better than the Raiders thought he would be


According to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle,  rookie quarterback Derek Carr has been very impressive and there really is a chance he could push Matt Schaub for the Raiders starting job.

Oakland offensive coordinator Greg Olsen admitted that Carr is “better than we thought he would be.”

“I really, really like him,” Olson said of Carr. “Everybody knew he was accurate, but he is more accurate than we thought. … We’ll have to wait and see how he does against a live rush, but so far his intelligence, accuracy and quickness in getting the ball out has been excellent.”
