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

Coach Dennis Allen had previously been married to Matt Schaub as his Week 1 starter. But following Carr's impressive preseason finale against the Seahawks, Allen was less committed to Schaub, saying he'll have to see where Schaub (elbow, day-to-day) is at health-wise. Carr has a big arm and would give the Raiders' receivers a boost. He and Denarius Moors hooked up for two touchdowns Thursday. Carr gives the Raiders their best chance to win games.

Isn't Rex undefeated or close to in his career of coaching against rookie QBs? I remember when Luck was a rookie we killed the Colts, and that was the year we went 6-10

Rex will destroy him, but Carr went down the field against Seattle's first-string defense last night for a TD, then threw two more TDs. If Bruce Allen is smart, he'll put Carr in shotgun and let him keep throwing it over the top. That's their one real shot at winning.

Ok that was probably going to happen soon anyway for them- Rex is at his best with pressure on rookie QB's

Seattle played their first stringers last night?

The Carr family QB brand can't handle a pass rush. Rex will do everything he can to give him PTSD in his first pro start.

I'm just going to say this right now...

 

If true, this is the most important game in Jets history.

 

I'm not kidding, it's the most important.

 

Why, you ask?

 

Because the posts from Shane that would follow an Oakland victory led by Derek Carr would be something that I don't believe this site has ever seen before. Nay, the world. Maybe even the universe. It would be awful. Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.

This is a legitimate concern. It would be nice if Calvin Pryor knocked him out of the game.

Tom Shane being right on a subject - what are the odds in Las Vegas on that?

Carr may have scored on Seattle's 1st stringers but isn't it standard pre-season procedure to not game plan, especially for the 4th game? Had Seattle been studying him, and planning for him I doubt he would have found it so easy to score. He may end up being better than Schaub right now, but I think I'd rather face the rookie qb, on the road, week 1, facing one of the best pass rushes in the league; our players will get their hits in.

Personally, I think we're gonna see Shaub but Allen is trying some gamesmanship to keep the Jets guessing and needing to gameplan for both - as if they weren't planning on doing that anyway.

I couldn't have picked a better game to go to.  We are going to destroy.

with walls and lankster starting at CB I'd like to see Rex adjust and not leave those 2 on islands the entire game.   Don't give up the big play and force Carr / Raiders move the ball all the way down the field.

Carr is going to shred.  Jets will still manage to win the game.

Rex is usually at getting better of rookie QB's. Even highly touted ones like Luck.

The San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur believes there's a 100 percent chance Derek Carr is the Raiders' starting quarterback Week 1 against the Jets.

All signs have been pointing to this since Carr torched the Seahawks in last night's preseason finale. Coach Dennis Allen, who had previously been adamant that Matt Schaub would start the opener, became more wishy-washy with his comments Thursday night. It's led beat writers to believe Carr is going to get the nod two Sundays from now in the Meadowlands. Schaub's arm is shot, while Carr's is cocked and loaded with big-time talent. In three preseason games, Carr was 33-of-45 passing for 326 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception.

Watch them put Carr in for the first down, run it, and then switch to Schaub.

Listening to Jay Mohr sports, some Oakland beat writer said its going to be Schaub because Carr has elbow soreness.
