Rich Gannon: Derek Carr’s growth clearly on display in Titans win

If there’s a recent expert on quarterbacking for the Raiders, it’s Rich Gannon. Or perhaps he’ll cede that distinction to Derek Carr.

Gannon complimented the current Raiders quarterback — both his abilities and his improvement — during an interview Tuesday with The Greg Papa Show on 95.7 The Game.

When Papa suggested that Carr could lead Oakland to the same heights Gannon and the 2002 Raiders reached, Gannon replied, “He’s well on his way.”

That showed in the Raiders’ Week 1 win over the Titans, the CBS analyst said.

“I just think he’s becoming a more accomplished player at that position,” Gannon told Papa.
