Watching Derek Carr in 2017, the last thing I would say he looked was comfortable. After the first two games of the season, starting in Washington in week three, he looked downright terrified of his own shadow. But that was on the field during the season. Where he relaxed was in his preparation, according to Sports Illustrated’s, Albert Breer.
“There was a feeling that, following the firing of former coordinator Bill Musgrave, he got too comfortable, because he was too close to Musgrave’s replacement, Todd Downing. Let’s just say that Jon Gruden and his staff know that, and it’s already apparent that Carr is going to be coached hard in 2018.”
It sounds like with the success he had in 2016, and the partial continuity of having his former QB coach now as his offensive coordinator, he had this. Cruise control.
