In a move that shocked some, unless you're of course a Oakland Raiders fan, head coach Dennis Allen actually did the correct thing and named rookie quarterback Derek Carr as his week 1 starter.
Unlike the battle in Ohio between Hoyer v. Manziel which no one really made any separation from each other, it was painfully obvious that Carr was the far superior guy to lead Oakland into the 2014 instead of offseason acquisition Matt Shaub.
And speaking of Shaub, How awful does he look now? It was only 3 years ago that many considered Shaub a top 10 quarterback who also put up good fantasy numbers. If Shaub can't even keep his job in Oakland, what does that say about his future prospects moving forward.
Bottomline, Dennis Allen knows his job is on the line, so rather than go with the veteran who continues to regress in record fashion, he's going with the rookie who has shown much more promise. Who knows, maybe Derek Carr can be the one to get Oakland out of the dumps they've been in the last decade.
