The 2022 season isn’t going the way the Las Vegas Raiders had planned for it to go.
While the team has a stacked offense led by Derek Carr, the team’s record isn’t reflecting this.
With the Raiders going into week 10 with only two wins, some place blame on Carr for the team’s downfall.
However, is the failure of the Raiders on him and will this mean it’s his last season in Las Vegas?
The Las Vegas Raiders Might Replace Carr If They Continue Losing
With the 2023 NFL Draft having a stellar class of quarterbacks, it’s possible the team will replace Derek Carr if they continue losing.
Losing more games puts them in prime position to take the best quarterback in next year’s draft.
While the Las Vegas Raiders got Carr’s former college teammate to boost their offense, it’s not translating into winning games.
With Carr facing bottom-tier defenses his entire career, fans are tired of him not balling out against these defenses.

However, the blame isn’t completely on Carr.
While he’s committed turnovers that have cost the Raiders, that’s not their only issue.
Las Vegas Raiders Defense Is Costing Team Games In 2022
While it’s fair to lay some blame on Derek Carr for losing games, it’s his defense that’s hurting him the most.
The team has blown three games in which the offense held a 17-point lead.
If management sees this, Carr might survive in Las Vegas.
However, a loss to the Indianapolis Colts will show the team is all-in on dumping Carr after this season.
