I thought this quote was particularly idiotic, even by DC's standards...

"You talk about having a clock in your head, when the clock hits zero before you take a snap and it's kind of tough," Carr said with a halfhearted laugh. "I was looking to get it out of my hands just because you don't want negative plays all the time. It all added up."

The first adjustment he's been forced to make here is getting used to working alongside the second and third units.

"I would be lying if I said it was normal for me," Carr said. "I'm getting one or two reps in a row, when I was used to getting eight and nine. That's different for me, but working with the young guys helps me to learn (the offense) because they're asking me about everything. Sometimes they give me a blank look, and I try not to give them one back." http://lohud.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080731/SPORTS01/807310436/-1/SPORTS

Things have not come easy for Carr. He hurt a foot working out a week before camp opened and missed the first practices. In his first two-plus days back, he has thrown a couple of interceptions, fumbled two snaps and tossed a few questionable passes.

"I have to go out there and make the plays that I know I can make," Carr said. "It's been rough, there have been some ups and some downs — mostly downs

"That's the hardest thing," Carr said. "I tried to throw a ball down the middle and my receiver had his hand on it, but it was borderline. You make the play, and it is a big play. If you don't, it's incomplete and you look bad."

Wait.

Did he just say that he actually attempted a pass in the middle of the field? Wow! That's great!

I enjoy watching football games, but I have never been able to understand the mainstream media's fascination with pre-season football practice.

I mean, really. Is there anything more boring than football practice? Well, maybe pre-season football games, but that's another issue. Yet, the local media cheerleaders are lined up each day to report breathlessly about the Texans' pre-season practices. The late night television news last night reported excitedly about the Texans' practice earlier in the evening in which the Texan players, without pads, ran through a series of drills that amounted to glorified touch football. Touch football!

At any rate, with all the media resources dedicated to covering pre-season training camp, an interesting piece of information does emerge every once in awhile. For example, this AP report notes that former Texans first-round draft pick and QB David Carr, now almost 30 years old, is trying to catch on as a backup QB with the Super Bowl champion New York Giants.

Despite being the Texans' first draft choice and the first player taken in the 2002 NFL draft, Carr turned out to be one of the worst QB's in NFL history, which is one of the many reasons that the Texans have been one of the worst teams in NFL history during their six year existence. It was reasonably clear even before the Texans third year (2004) that Carr was not the answer at QB, but the Texans cheerleaders at the Chronicle were still touting him as a potential top-tier talent deep into the Texans' disastrous 2-14 season in 2005. That same level of incompetence is generally displayed in almost all of the seemingly endless puff pieces that the Chron reporters (Chron blogger Lance Zerlein excepted) generate throughout Texans training camp.

Getting back to Carr, it sounds as if his performance to date in the Giants camp has been consistent with his performance in Houston:

Things have not started well for Carr. He hurt his foot working out a week before camp opened and missed some practice time. Since returning, he has thrown a couple of interceptions, fumbled two snaps and tossed a few questionable passes.

David Carr, first-round draft choice. A quintessential example of the NFL's mismatch problem?

Deep down, based on the fact that this thread is still around, I think we still want to see the guy become a decent backup in the league. Mainly cause he was a nice guy that just sucked butt here in Houston.

Speak for yourself. I think you are mistaken.

the dude could spontaneously burst into flames and I wouldn't care one bit. it would be like seeing John Stockton or Skip Bayless burst into flames, I would be like 'wow, that dude is on flames. sucks to be him. so how about this weather we are having'.

that being said, I really want him to make the Giants as their backup QB and for Eli to go down and have Carr come in and just get annihilated by opposing defenses and the brutal New York media. I want to see the NEW YORK POST cover a Carr-led Giants team.

Oh man, following a Super Bowl year....that would just be too rich. If Eli went down Week1 and Carr was forced to come in, I would venture to say that the Giants would be a 3-13 team. And oh man it would be like a Salem witch trial with Carr in the NY media...oh man, he would just get grilled.

fwiw (and its worth a lot) we are just a week away from the start of the 2nd season of the post-Carr era. 2 AD (After David).

After his dismal 1 Quarter relief effort of an injured Manning, Carr would be cut to shreads by the New York Media.

If Carr gets upset about the calls and commentary on KILT's "Fan Feedback" on 610 AM, just wait untill he experiences the wrath of 660 WFAN for just a couple of days.

His psyche would suffer irreparable harm. He would go back to his "basket case mode" and the Giants would be trolling the Free Agent market for a new QB after the next practice...

after watching that, i noticed how David Carr doesn't set his feet properly for throws and that the ball is always high which causes the recievers to stop to recieve it. They rarely catch it on the run. There was one deep pass where his footwork looked right, and he hit the reciever down the middle. I dont think Carr will ever figure out his mechanical and mental flaws.

His brother Derek looks good though.

All I got out of that video is this:

(A) Dang, I wish we had Domanick Davis and that he never got injured

(B) Dang, Andre Johnson had to catch a lot of jump balls

(C) Dang, David Carr had to pull the ball and run a lot because he didn't know how to read a defense and t-h-r-o-w the ball in time.

(D) Dom Capers looks goofy pumping his fist after a TD.

David Carr, as usual, shines in preseason games :) At least statistically. Check out the end of the game:

This time, though, it was Carr at the helm of the offense, trying to resurrect a disappointing career. The former No. 1 pick got New York as far as the Detroit 40, but an intentional grounding penalty was followed by a sack, and the Lions hung on for the victory.

Here's a couple of gems...

Ibarharry: Carolina last year went to zone blocking and Houston was doing the same the last few years David was there. I have a thing about Zone Blocking and what it is used for. Again Zone blocking is designed for a running team that does not want to protect its QB. Some of you will crucify me for saying that, but it really is the truth.

........

Ibarharry: I for one did not like what the Panthers did. They tried to pull the same stunt as Houston did the last couple of years. They also cut a very good WR to keep a rookie who really never made it on the field.

Anybody with time on their hands and a registered account....please feel free to go set them straight on the QB known as David Carr, Ibar is building false hope.

I remember that St. Louis game where Ryan Fitzpatrick beat us in OT while we were winning solidly at halftime. I think I remember reading that in the first half the Texans let Carr call his own plays. He had a solid half doing that. In the 2nd half Pendry took over and the offense fell apart. That always makes me go "hmmmm"

“[Carr’s] like a lot of young guys; they lose their confidence. Pro athletes have very fragile egos, so we just have to try to get them in stride, build their confidence, get them to believe in themselves and to believe in the system. I think that’s how you get a guy back going in the right direction.

“I think he’s starting to have a little success. I think he’s starting to understand what (coach) Tom (Coughlin) wants from the quarterback position.”

Carr’s release has changed, according to Palmer.

“It’s a little bit lower than before,” he said. “We talk about that all the time. He has a very quick release, and he’s got a strong arm. He’s getting to a point in his life where he’s going to start hurting his elbow and shoulder if he doesn’t become more mechanically sound.”

He has to slow down,” Palmer said about Carr when he’s in the pocket. “There are times where he rushes through it. We have to get him to slow down, stay in rhythm, stay within the reads and not force it.

“He’s a talented young man. He’s very athletic. He runs very well, has a strong arm, but he’s got to settle down in the pocket.”

NOTHING HAS CHANGED...No surprise.

I thought the article was kind of sad myself. He (Palmer) is talking about the same kinds of things that we all were in 2005 and 2006. He's talking about completion percentage and one good year for yards and pretending that it's all about Carr losing his confidence. He's lying to himself for no good reason other than he likes the guy and wants to see him succeed. It's like on some level he's still trying to prove that he could have made Carr a great QB but if you think about it David Carr only had one season where he completely lacked an acknowledged "QB guru" coaching him. That was 2005 when Palmer was out and Pendry was in. The rest of his career he had Chris Palmer holding his hand and Gary Kubiak trying to coach him up. Kubiak had no "umbilical cord" to the Carr pick and he determined in one season that there was nothing he could do with David Carr. The only person still talking about how much talent Carr has is Chris Palmer out of some misplaced sense of past loyalty and nostalgia or a desire for vindication.

Pitiful article and hopefully we see fewer of those as the years go by.

Carr will at best be the 3rd string QB in NY behind Anthony Wright. As a Giants fan I am OK with that as long as Eli and Wright stay healthy and this guy stays buried on the bench as the 3rd guy.

BTW, Carr has NO excuses in NY. If for some reason he ever does see the field he has a great line, quality receivers, a solid TE, and 3 excellent running backs.

From the Giant board after the carnage of Carr's performance:

"Fellas don't worry about Car. He was not that bad. He did ok and didn't make any big mistakes like ints. As for my boy Wright, I think that he may be out.

"Now back to David. Preseason is about how good the qb can handle pressure. The offense is not going to put up their best play. I think that the Giants should throw in some wr screans because some defenses are prepared for the deep to medium pass, so the quick release is real important at times wich a wr screen pass is. Also how many delays the offense have done. I rather have the sacks instead of the ints and Carr got sack because he knows that something is not there and he took a big chance."

I wonder how many times posts like that appeared on Texans boards from 2002 to 2006. I watched Carr play against Cleveland last week, and all he threw were quick tosses to his WRs at the line of scrimmage. Still, Carr may actually have the inside track for the #2 job as things stand. But I suspect the Giants may be scanning that waiver wire pretty carefully.

Is it wrong to smile when I read statements like, "It's official: it wasn't Houston's fault." I mean, we've all known the truth a long time, but it is good to see it (finally) acknowledged outside of Southeast Texas.

I'll beat people to it...Carr in 4th preseason 20-29 192 yds, 2 TDs and 0 ints. From what I read Anthony Wright had nailed down the backup job until hurting his back and Dave took over. The preseason warrior does it again. Now wait until they need him in a game.

Well I officially empower myself to strip Kelvin Cato of his nickname.. (he was the one that had like 8 blocks in a preseason B-ball game and then the Rockets signed him to an outrageous contract and disappeared after that when the games meant something)

Kelvin your nickname is now gone

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — If Tom Coughlin decides to give Eli Manning some rest during the New York Giants' regular-season finale against the Vikings in Minnesota, David Carr is ready and waiting to take over at quarterback.

Carr might be in the huddle before Manning even takes a step toward the sideline.

"I'd love to get in there and throw the ball around a little bit," Carr said. "It's fun watching them go through everything and prepare, but there is something you miss at the end of the week after you sit there in the meeting rooms and talk about the same things that Eli is talking about."

This has been Carr's strangest season in almost two decades.


"I learned a lot just being around this group," Carr said. "I think I said it when I got here, just watching them through the playoffs, they were a group of guys I wanted to be around. I didn't know anything about them, but once I got in here, it was how it should be. This is winning football."

Carr learned a lot about losing football games earlier in his career. He endured five seasons with the expansion Houston Texans before being released and hooking on with Carolina for six games last season.

He has started 79 games overall and thrown 62 touchdowns. However, he also has been hit more than most quarterbacks. He has been sacked 262 times in his career, including an NFL-record 76 in his rookie season.

Carr called that an experience he would not trade, although he wonders what things would have been like had he played for a good team.

He admits to some jealousy seeing what Manning has accomplished in his five seasons, leading the Giants to a title last year and earning a Super Bowl MVP.

"Just looking around the league at different guys and different situations guys get thrown into, it's the luck of the draw," Carr said.

Carr, a seven-year veteran, joined the team this season as a backup to Eli Manning. He has appeared in only two games and has thrown one pass, a completion for a touchdown on a 5-yard play.

But it is not out of the question that Carr, 29, could play at least part of the game Sunday in the Metrodome so that Manning is not exposed unnecessarily to danger and so that Carr can sharpen his skills. At the very least, Carr is fit and ready.

“Physically, I feel as good as I have since I was, like, 12,” Carr said. But Carr has not played since Oct. 5. When someone asked if he had ever gone this long without playing, Carr said, “No, not since I was 4.”

I was NOTHING of the sort until HE started blaming the Texans for all his failures. I backed Carr to everyone who said he was garbage. I said all he needed was a good offensive line, and he would be just fine.

Then when he left Houston, he talked into any microphone in front of his face about how the Texans didn't coach him right and how it was a bad situation. He RARELY put any of the responsibility on himself.

From that moment forward - I became a Carr hater. But ONLY when he showed his true colors.

David Carr is ancient history. I hold no animosity towards him. He did his best while he was here and took a pounding that shattered his football career. You can blame the coaches, front office, and David himself for all the shortcomings. But I wish him the best for the rest of his life at whatever he does.

Carr is an interesting topic. I've always though he had a ton of talent, but he was never on a team that had a good running game and he was sacked more than any other QB in his career with the Houston Texans. So the question is are the 262 sacks he took and the 70 INTs he threw in his 6 years with Houston and Carolina more of an issue of him being indecisive with a slow delivery and poor pocket presence or was he not given proper protection and enough weapons? We can give him a run game, but we don't know if we can protect him. We certainly cannot give him a weapon as good as Andre Johnson. Carr has throw for over 14,000 and 60 TDs in his years with the Panthers and Texans.

Carr is currently the backup with the Giants. He has no shot at being a starter again behind Manning, so he certainly would welcome the change of scenery.

What is your take on Carr?

So, he signs another 1 year - $1 mill contract with the Giants.

http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/giants/2009/02/carr-re-signs-to-be-elis-backu.html


“Last year was just such a positive experience for me I wanted to try to do it again,” Carr added. “Just try and kind of get another one of those years under my belt just learning and continuing to better myself.

“Honestly, there are spots out there and starting positions and there could have been some things where it would have just been my Houston situation all over again and it wasn’t really something I was looking forward to, to tell you the truth. (Some of the starting possibilities) it is just difficult to win. I’m not saying that I wouldn’t love the challenge of doing that, but it just wasn’t right for me, the spots that were available.”

I like how Carr is so deluded that he thinks there are starting jobs out there for him to compete for...that there are actually teams who would consider him as their starting QB. Just so freaking self deluded....and nice class by taking a shot at the Texans too. He conveniently left off Carolina. What happened there, lil Davey? Just a pathetic excuse for a competitive athlete.

for the record, I can't see one team offering Carr even a shot at the starting job and that includes Detroit, 49ers, Bears, Chiefs, Vikings, and Cleveland. All teams have questions at QB yet none of those teams are going to bring in a David Carr as the answer at QB. Carr may say that teams are calling, but he is fooling himself and few others.
