1. Derek Carr

Since his return from a broken leg, it has been a love-hate relationship with Derek Carr and Raider Nation.

It is almost with 100 percent certainty that after any Raiders loss, and sometimes even after a win, there is a vocal segment of Raider fans that wish Carr would be left behind in the Bay Area as the team moves to Las Vegas.

Whether they have grown weary of his propensity to check down, his cold-weather struggles, or his choir boy persona that seems to clash with the historical identity of the silver and black, all their frustrations boiled over when they booed him off the Coliseum field following their loss to the Jaguars in Week 15.

While he may have left Oakland fans wanting in their finale, he gave the SoCal Raiders fans a much better showing in their Los Angeles finale. Carr was nearly perfect, completing 86.7 percent of his passes for 291 yards and one touchdown, while also running in for another score.

The jury may still be out for some as to whether Carr will still be under center when the Raiders open up Allegiant Stadium next season, but there shouldn’t be much for fans to argue about when it comes to his latest performance.
