The 2022 NFL season remains young in terms of total games played, but there are already many NFL busts nevertheless. After Week 3, it’s becoming easier to get a good idea about the league’s underperforming teams, players, and coaches. Several of them received a lot of hype before the season but are underwhelming on the playing field.
This is disappointing for their fans but it’s fascinating for everybody else. It’s always interesting to see who is responsible for different performances and failures. Let’s check out these massive NFL busts and ask if the season is already over for them. Can they turn it around and bounce back?
Before the season, there was a lot of talk about how the Raiders finally assembled an elite roster. Fans thought that the acquisition of a truly elite wide receiver in Davante Adams would bring out the best of Carr. The QB is somewhat consistent but fails to convince that he belongs in the top tier (via Sportsnaut).
New Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels deserves a lot of criticism for bad playcalling this season, but Carr is the team’s leader. This was supposed to be the year he came out and finally proved himself. However, he threw several costly incompletions against the Cardinals and his team lost again. He piled onto that mistake by losing to downtrodden Tennessee in Week 3. It may be time for the franchise to move on and throw him on the pile of NFL busts.
