Raiders QB Derek Carr Throws Better Behind-The-Back Passes Than You Do Normal Ones

david carr throwing a behind-the-back pass

I’m not gonna lie — I’m God awful at throwing a football. I throw up more ducks than an amateur competitive eater mid-balut eating contest after he finds out that “balut” is just a fancy word for fetal duck eggs (and yes, balut eating contests are real things that exist in America). I’d blame it on my dad for never teaching me how to throw a spiral, but I’m pretty sure his father never taught him how to throw one, nor did his grandfather teach his father. And who am I to fuck with family tradition? No sense in ever learning. The Borislows are a ping pong family anyhow.

My inability to toss the pigskin lets me further appreciate Derek Carr’s ability to toss the pigskin in a very impressive manner — behind his back.

The impressive part about this video, though, is that the receiver, backup QB Connor Cook, didn’t run over and snatch the ball from Derek’s hand pre-throw so he could talk about how great he is at football and at existence in general.

Go Las Vegas Oakland Raiders.
