    Several RBs could do what Elliot is doing with that line, Hyde for example.

    Should be Carr but it won't be. Raiders are nothing without him.

    Carr or Brady.

    Elliott's a beast, but hard to quantify how much is him versus how much is his OL

    Don't the Raiders have a bunch of weapons on offense?

    Argument works better for Brady, IMO. Gronkowski is hurt... he's throwing to two white receivers, Bennet, a guy named Mitchell, and one other guy. It's insane that he continues to have these type of seasons with a crew of flunkies.

    And they have potentially the DROY on the other side and a really good oline. But Carr is all they have.

    Elliot finishes runs and has an aggresive attitude that I haven't seen from an RB in today's injury conscious NFL.

    I think it's fair to say he has a tremendous line, but don't discount his aggressiveness, vision, and speed, all of which are certainly a big part of the equation.

    He's a fun player to watch, and I hope he stays healthy.

    If you watched the Raiders-Panthers game, that should tell you all you need to know about how valuable Derek Carr is to that team.

    Carr and it's not close .. coach of the year should be Belicheck, Gase( if the phins win out) or Del Rio.

    Prescott and Elliot aren't even the most important players on their offense. Dallas Oline should honestly win the award as a group

    I think it should be Derek Carr because I am a homer who cheers for the Raiders.

    Zeke has been great but it's hard to say how much is him. Dallas was top 10 in rushing last year with McFadden being the main back. Zeke has obviously made them better though.

    Carr has been very good but come on, comparing him to Brady is silly. Carr is working with much better weapons and has a whopping 3 more TD's than Brady and Brady missed 4 games. Brady has 22 TD's and 2 (TWO!) int's. Carr is 20th in the league in YPA. Brady is 2nd. Honestly, it's not even close between Brady and Carr and that's with Carr working with much better weapons.

    Before looking at stats, I would say Brady. After looking at stats, it's Matt Ryan. His numbers are absurd. He's 3rd in yards while being 19th in attempts. He's 1st in YPA by a huge margin (1.1 ypa). To put that in perspective, the gap between Ryan and #2 (Brady) is the same as the gap between #2 and #16 (Hoyer). He's 3rd in TD's while being 19th in attempts. His numbers are off the charts. He's been the best QB in the league this year.

    Except dez missed half the year last year and zeke is better out the backfield. The defense also added pass rushers and significantly better play from Claiborne when he was healthy and a non rookie Byron Jones

    Stafford has plenty of help. If he didn't they wouldn't have all those wins with like a 25th ranked offense or whatever it is
