Derek Carr Passer Rating 6th Best For a Rookie since 1960

Yesterday, Oakland Raider rookie quarterback, Derek Carr’s progression took another step forward. Not only has he passed for more touchdowns than any rookie in Oakland Raider History, in yesterday’s game against the San Francisco Forty-Niners stingy defense, he had the seventh highest quarterback rating of any Oakland Raider Quarterback in history and the sixth highest of any rookie in the NFL since 1960.

This is in stark contrast to his brother’s rookie season where, his older brother, David Carr, ran for his life behind a rag tag offensive line and was sacked an NFL record 76 times. In fact, Derek’s QB rating of 78.3 is higher than any season David had in his career. But, to be fair, Derek has only been sacked 16 times in his rookie campaign and had the advantage of studying and training with his older brother for nearly a decade before heading off to Fresno State and eventually being drafted by the Raiders in this year’s NFL Draft.

At this point Carr has thrown 17 touchdowns and trails Dan Marino by three touchdowns for third on the All-Time Rookie list. For reference Peyton Manning (1st) had 26 in his rookie season and Charlie Conerly  threw 22 for the Giants in 1948.

There are still three games to go and he will play some pretty tough defenses, but, at this point, Derek Carr is looking like the steal of the 2014 Draft.

* Note: be on the lookout for his matchup against Manning and the Broncos in the final game of the season. He could be making even more history.
