The Oakland Raiders could be playoff bound for the first time in a long time. When it comes to Raiders quarterback Derek Carr he could be the reason Oakland reaches a postseason birth for the first time since 2002. Offensive Coordinator Bill Musgrave has decided he is going to give his quarterback the opportunity to tweak the game plan if needed.

“I think it helps that he doesn’t have to learn a new language again,” Musgrave said, via CSN Bay Area. “Two years in the league, he had two different systems. Now, this year, he can feel like he has a good grasp of it and start putting his own spin on things and can put his own signature on the system. Things that he wants to see or tweak a quarter turn here or there, he can initiate that.”

This will be their 2nd year working together and has given Carr the confidence to put his own little spin on the offense. It shows that Carr has taken leaps in understanding the things that make an offense run like a well oiled machine such as on field personnel and a progression of reads in the passing game. The keys are yours Derek Carr, the real question is whether he takes that leap to becoming one of the elite quarterbacks in this league?
