It would be more like Farve/Rogers, Montana/Young, Smith/Mahomes. Right now the haters plan is more like Tua/Fitzgerald, Bortels/Minchew, Cousins/RG3, Kap/Garoppolo, Mariota/Tannehill (worked out better than they hoped because of running game and defense). Yikes!
    3 yrs of the deal would be guaranteed and up to 150 million or more, that's not chump change for a game manager type of qb

    I think this is what will prompt the Raiders/Carr divorce: Money.

    Carr and his agents will want to be paid.

    The Raiders and their new GM will want to pay him like a game manager QB.

    Some team would likely give us a couple of first rounders AND maybe a second or third rounder for Carr. Carr could win consistently with a team with elite WRs, a strong running game, an elite OL and an elite defense that allows him to play conservatively, relying on a strong running game for play action capabilities.

    In that type of system, Carr could be successful. He wants to stand back there like a QB in a flag football league, knowing he can't be tackled.

    The sad thing is that when Carr plays well, he's among the league's best. He moves in the pocket, extends plays, runs for first downs and passes for TDs. The only problem is that those games are surrounded by other games in which he crumbles under the least bit of pressure, doesn't extend plays, misses wide open receivers and never runs for even one first down in a game.

    No reason why the Raiders can't be that team. If another team can do that, there is no reason why a new GM/Head Coach shouldn't be able too
