Carr playing at elite level in leading Raiders to 2-0 start originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
I remember the photo. It was fairly massive. Tom Brady was shown dropping back for a pass while wearing a Raiders uniform. He was smiling. Like the way you might see a child on Christmas morning.
Heck, I wrote the column about Brady possibly signing with Las Vegas that accompanied such a pointed depiction. It all caught Derek Carr's eye.
"The first day I moved here, Tom Brady was on the front page of the newspaper," Carr said. "It just adds fuel to the fire."
My suggestion to the Raiders quarterback: Keep finding ways to toss more tinder and kindling into those open spaces between logs. It's working.
