I haven't seen Carr play that much but you guys have obviously. If you could have had your choice of drafting either one of the two, who would you have drafted? To me Carr looks like when he is healthy has a bigger upside. Manning can't do anything with the talent he has on the Giants.

Manning can at least make plays in between his meltdowns. He may end up Kerry Collins one day. Carr makes Rob Johnson look like Bert Jones (going old school on you).

Well, the David Carr that was drafted was alot different than the David Carr of 2005-2006. From '02 through most of '04, Carr showed signs of progress and flashes of being a good QB. Then the wheels fell off.

Eli has had a much better career to this point, even with his faults. And are we drafting either with the same '02 team we had assembled? If so, it doesn't really matter. Should have taken Peppers.

I always feel when talking about Eli Manning the question you have to ask yourself is would he have been as big a prospect as he was if he didn't have the surname that he has.

In my opinion I don't think he would have, obviously people don't get drafted first overall for no reason, I just think many people looked at what Archie and Peyton could do and thought Eli was the same.

When you look at Roethlisberger and Rivers also, who are both much better Quarterbacks than Eli taken lower down.

Manning will not be a star in this league other than the fact he is Peytons younger brother in my opinion.

Manning would be my pick all day long, and twice on Sunday, compared to Carr.

Manning at least has the ability to play at an NFL league level. Carr doesn't. It really is as simple as that, when making this choice.

Manning may never turn out to match his purported 'expectation level'.

But then again there are only some many, Marino's, Montana's, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady's, in the world. He won't be one of those. He may end up being an average, middle of the pack, NFL QB. But he would kick the stuffing out of Carr, talent wise, any day of the week, IMO.

At the time I thought Roethlisberger was going to be the better QB of any taken in the 1st round that year. It's debatable to some but I think Ben Roethlisberger makes a good case for me.

No thanks to Eli or Zoolander(Carr).

OMG, my WORST freaking nightmare. David Carr to the Giants. Dude, are you on crack? (actually, you said it all when you admitted you never saw him play, actually you did when he played the Giants last season and that was one of the best games of his career) The only thing David Carr should be doing at the Meadowlands is selling hotdogs. I have spent the last few seasons watching both (side by side). I am a Giants also. My Sundays are typically with the Texans on one TV and the Giants on the other. As bad as Eli looked on Sunday, he has NEVER looked as bad as David Carr. The guy is a cancer. At least Eli has had some games where he has looked good.

The Giants need to clean house. Both Coughlin and Gilbride needs to be gone. They need to jump on Bill Cowher as soon as the season ends. Geez, I guess I better head on over to the Giants board to see if any of this nonsense is going on over there. I will put a stop to it real fast.

Parcells is probably my all time favorite NFL coach. However, you know his history. Just as soon as he would get the Giants back to competing at a championship level he would bail. I wouldn't mind seeing him at the GM level if he would stick around. The man knows talent. Just look at the Cowboys. You think they are having the success this season due to Wade Phillips? The man inherited a Parcells team.

Maybe Carr had more upside in 2002 when he was drafted than Eli had when he was drafted in 2004, but all that upside has been blown to pieces. Carr is not a quality NFL QB. I don't think he's a quality backup or even a quality 3rd stringer if there is one. Eli has looked like at least an average, sometimes an above average, QB the last few years. Carr can't even reach "average" when he's dreaming of being QB.

Carr Vs manning. It's like comparing a jaguar vs a pinto. Manning is the jaguar. Expensive but looks good when performing. But very high mainteance costs. And when it breaks down, it's gonna cost you. And carr, well i'd rather walk than rely on him.

well its not surprise that the OP who thought Carr had more upside than Eli hasnt really seen David play....because if you did, you would realize how utterly ignorant that statement was.

Carr is an unintelligent, unprofessional, undedicated to winning and improving, and incapable QB.
Manning is very intelligent, professional, dedicated to winning and improving, and has been a moderately capable QB.

Manning is basically everything that Carr isn't. Manning isn't without flaws but I guarantee that only about 12 teams in the whole NFL wouldn't trade their current starter for Eli Manning.

At least Manning hates to lose and seems to care. I think he is having trouble with the whole NY media thing and he wouldnt be the first one to have those types of problems.

From PFT: Friction Between..... (http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm)Scroll down. Also watch the video

POSTED 6:00 a.m. EST; UPDATED 6:20 a.m. EST, November 29, 2007

FRICTION BETWEEN PANTHERS DEFENSE, OFFENSE?

A league source tells us that members of the Carolina Panthers defense were telling members of the New Orleans offense during Sunday's game between the two teams that "[o]ur offense sucks."

News flash -- their defense ain't much better, given that they gave up 31 points.

But even seven points would have been too many when compared to the six that Carolina managed to score against a so-so Saints defense.

The development is the latest piece of evidence to support the growing belief that coach John Fox will get dumped after the season ends, if not sooner. Here's what the PFTV guys had to say about the situaiton.

Agreed. At least Eli Manning throws the ball past the line of scrimmage and usually doesn't go many weeks without throwing a TD pass (I believe Carr holds a record of 10 weeks). Carr did have the mind, or really even the mechanics to be a serious NFL quarterback. Manning just needs to make better decisions, Carr is a genuinely bad QB.

Eli's biggest problem is his last name, the guy can't obviously live up to the pressure of being Peyton (and let's get real here.....who could). He needs to go to court and change his last name, because he's never going to be Payton and the whole reason why the Giants traded up is because they wanted "Manning" (if you know what I mean...Payton)

Eli would of been better off sucking up his tears and going to SD, because honestly I think he's better than Rivers (yeah I said that.....Rivers side throw is going to do him in like Carr). Eli needs a offensive head coach that can calm him down and tell him to forget about trying to live up to the expectations of his brother......he's never going to be that (honestly who the hell could?) , but if you surround him with a good running game and defense, he'll make plays.......he's not near as bad as David Carr.......trust me on that.

LOL, look what I posted. I think this thread was created right after the Giants got embarrassed by the Viking 41-17 in November. After that loss I thought they were heading for another implosion. I never did get on the Eli sucks bandwagon however I was totally on the Coughlin's got to go bandwagon. Unfortunately I think the Giants are going to lose their best coach, Steve Spagnuolo. His scheme worked to perfection last night.

Go even further back. I've been on the Eli/Giants jock since 2004. He showed flashes of greatness even in his horrific rookie year. It was clear he was going to be better than Roethlisberger, who was too successful for his own good.

Totally agree!!

Moon held the dubious title of "Most Sacked QB" while Carr was still in Jr. High. All he did was lead the Oilers to their best ever seasons (only to lose in the playoffs); the best being 13-3 (then Butthead Bud broke up the team because they didn't make the Super Bowl.

Another example is Troy Aikman. Remember his first two seasons. I didn't think the kid would survive. All he did was go on to win 3 Super Bowls.

Then there's Jim Plunkett.... given up for dead in New England only to resurface in Oakland and win a Super Bowl.

...you get my meaning. Like you said, it ain't how many times you get knocked down. Its whether you have the 'nads to keep getting back up and eventually start to do the knocking down yourself.

I could be wrong but I don't see that much gumption in Carr. I see "quitter".

Actually, the Oilers best seasons were when they made it to the AFC Championship games two years in a row. Obviously, they lost to the mighty Steelers, but Moon could never get them that far during the R&S era. (Plus, let's not forget he was the QB for the game-we-do-not-mention.)

And regular season wins don't really matter for much at the end of the day. Just ask the Patriots right now.

I disagree. If you go to the superbowl that early in your career, maybe you get the idea that what you're doing is good enough. If you struggle, obviously you've got to get better.

While I also disagree with the premise, I think that it has some merits, and it certainly makes sense.

Eli. I was really hoping we could somehow swing Eli in 2004. I wanted some sort of Carr + draft pick type of trade. Eli could read an NFL defense at the age of 16 better than Carr could when he was drafted. (not intended to be funny)

Eli is going to be a good QB, and finally now the critics are off his back. The only thing about his last name that has anything to do with him being good is growing up in the NFL-QB mentality his entire life. Most kids growing up were taught 'how' to throw the football, how to use your feet, etc. Eli was taugh how to see what the defense is going to do, what is the best way to attack this defense, etc. Completely different mentality.

It's not him being a little manning, it's him being coached by a Manning for 27 years.

lmfao. you keep telling yourself that over and over....it just might come true. carr was and always will be total freaking garbage. the ONLY plus he had as a football player is that he could take an asswhoopin'. That is it. Here are his laundry list of shortcomings:

poor footwork
poor release
long windup
not smart; pretty much a mimbo (male bimbo)
reads coverage poorly
struggles making adjustments
can't throw over middle over field due to trajectory of release
lack of dedication in the film room
lack of dedication in the offseason
football was not important to him; just a job
no competitive fire
no leadership skills
poor teammate; felt he was above 'hanging with the guys'
lack of accountability
poor pocket presence
poor game management skills
football was not a priority in his life...more important to kiss his wife's arse than earn his paycheck
backstabber (throwing Texans and especially OL under the bus when he got to carolina)
failure as a franchise leader
total freaking loser and a total freaking scrub no-talent hack

This is a case where someone throws stuff up against a wall and none of it sticks.

His 'coaching' was the same as what Eli and Romo had the past two seasons in case you didn't know.

I'll save the old and tired criticisms and just say that six years later it's safe to say that DC and Harrington were both highly overrated by most in what turned out to be a terrible draft year for QBs.

This is a funny thread considering how recent some of the Eli criticisms were being made.

i'm more saying "that makes no sense" to what sounds like him bragging about being right about both Manning and Roethlisberger, when Roethlisberger has only gotten better since his Super Bowl win.
I said Eli would be better than Roethlisberger. The thing about Roethlisberger is that he was too good too early in his career, which led to his oversized head.

I agree that Eli will probably turn out to be the better QB in the long run. Ben seems to piss off some of his teamates and is turning out to be a little "prima donna" biatch.

The knock on Ben is he seems to always have a bobo . He may play but he's got a bobo and needs a bandaid .

the knock on Roethlisberger is that he's one of the best QB's in the league on third downs and in the clutch.
