There have been many quarterback rivalries in NFL history, but the rivalry between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning has been one of the most epic. The two have met a total of 15 times, including the post season with Brady having a big 10-5 advantage. The skill-set of these two elite QBs is undeniable. Equally undeniable is the skill and potential of several quarterbacks who have entered the league in the last several years, including Raiders rookie, Derek Carr.
One thing that makes this speculation even more interesting is the fact that an epic rivalry between Carr and a future QB within the AFC West may be closer than some may think. The Denver Broncos, San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs all have veteran QBs who have fewer playing days ahead of them than they do behind them.
These teams also have no big name QB prospects on their roster and will likely have to draft one in the very near future. Combine that with the crop of young college quarterbacks that will be coming out in the next few years and you have enough smoke for a fire.
There are also young QBs already in the league that could wind up providing Derek Carr with some great rivalries. Lets take a look at a few.
