Does Derek Carr have a shot at the Hall of Fame?

Derek Carr is a future Hall of Fame quarterback, at least in the eyes of Colin Shepherd.

And despite a less-than-flashy career resume, which includes just one playoff appearance (0-1 in the playoffs), Cowherd is fully confident Carr will receive a gold jacket when his playing days are done.

Why?

Carr remained efficient and dependable despite the constant clutter around him during his time in Oakland and Las Vegas. And according to Cowherd, his numbers back it up.

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

His decree came in response to a Pro Football Focus QB tier list published this week, which marked him as a “mixed and polarizing” QB along with Kyler Murray and Dak Prescott.

“Carr doesn’t miss games, he’s productive and he brought a blown tire to the playoffs. He’ll have his sixth coach in his ninth year with the Raiders,” Cowherd said. “… The last three years, the Raiders have been nothing but bullshit: bad offensive line, fired GM, fired coach, Henry Ruggs mess. It’s been a mess.

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