While one Bay Area quarterback deals with more attention than any likely backup has ever gotten, over the San Francisco Bay Bridge the Oakland Raiders' starting quarterback is having himself a time.

After an impressive sophomore campaign that saw him complete 61.1 percent of his passes for 3,987 yards, 32 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions, the Derek Carr seems primed to lead the Raiders to their first winning season since 2002.

But first, trick shots. Those are a little harder to come by in football than they are in, say, basketball, soccer, golf, or even trampolining, but the 25-year-old managed just fine, hurling a perfect spiral behind his back on the money to a streaking teammate, who added to the degree of difficulty by making a one-handed grab.

But this isn't the longest behind-the-back football toss we've ever seen.

That accomplishment belongs to Miami Dolphins legend Dan Marino, who hucked this perfect bomb in practice in 1988.
