After all, it shouldn’t take long for them to develop solid chemistry because they have played together at Fresno State.
It’s just a matter of rekindling that connection that could bring wonders to the Raiders.
However, Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre isn’t that keen on the Carr-Adams combination, as shared by Sports Illustrated and Sirius XM’s Michael Fabiano.

Favre said, “I’d be shocked if [Davante Adams] had the same year…I think Derek Carr is a very good quarterback but he’s not in Aaron’s league yet, may never be, and that’s no disrespect.”
Carr did put up solid numbers last season with 4,804 yards and 24 touchdowns.
However, he also threw 14 interceptions.
Meanwhile, Rodgers had 37 touchdowns and only four picks.
He is as accurate as they come and that’s what makes him a legend and a future Hall of Famer.
If that’s the case, it would be difficult for Adams to replicate or surpass his 1,553 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns from last season.
The Case For The Duo Having Success
While Favre has his own take, there’s also a possibility that Adams will thrive with Carr.
Defenses must account for them too on every snap, leaving fewer defenders to cover Adams.
If they chose to double-team Adams, Renfrow and Waller will have a field day.
Against single coverage, Adams is unstoppable.
Therefore, opponents are left to pick their poison when facing the Raiders’ offense.
If Carr and Adams prove Favre to be wrong, expect a response, especially from Adams.
