Off The Charts Podcast: October 1

This week on the Off The Charts Podcast: More discussion of Arizona and their ideal opposites, the Chicago Bears.

Plus: Why Derek Carr is so much better this year, and why the future is bright on both sides of the ball for Oakland despite a No. 28 rank in defensive DVOA so far.
