Does Derek Carr Have a Chance at the Hall of Fame?

Derek Carr is a future Hall of Fame quarterback — at least in the eyes of Colin Cowherd

And despite a less than ostentatious career resume, which includes just one play-off appearance (0-1 in the play-offs), Cowherd is confident that Carr will get a gold jacket when his playing days are over.

Why?

Carr’s remained efficient and reliable despite the constant disorder around him during his time in Oakland and Las Vegas. And according to Cowherd, his numbers back that up.

“He’s going to make the Hall of Fame,” Cowherd said on Wednesday’s episode of “The Herd.”

His decree came in response to a Pro Football Focus QB ranking released this week that marked him as a “mixed bag, polarizing” QB alongside Kyler Murray and Dak Prescott.

“Carr doesn’t miss any games, he is productive and he carried a tire fire to the playoffs. He will have his sixth coach in his ninth year with the Raiders,” said Cowherd. “…For the past three years, the Raiders have been nothing but crap: bad O-line, GM layoffs, coach layoffs, Henry Ruggs disaster. It’s been a mess.

“But in the last three years of chaos for the Raiders, Derek Carr has completed 69% of his throws, a 71-31 TD-INT ratio (2.5-to-1) and a passer rating of 98.5. He is much better in all of these categories than Matt Ryan, a better completion rate and rating than Kyler Murray, and a higher completion rate than Matthew Staffford.”
