From Kent Somers twitter
Cards have interest in signing QB David Carr, according to NFL sources. Carr will hit FA market Thursday night.

:spin:

Citing multiple NFL sources, Cardinals beat writer Kent Somers reports that the team has interest in free agent David Carr.

Carr, 29, likely wouldn't pose a big threat for a starting job, so his signing could be something of a vote of confidence to Matt Leinart. The Cards are also interested in retaining incumbent third-string QB Brian St. Pierre, who is another unrestricted free agent. The two could compete behind Leinart.

Remember how he used to light'em up in practice though, so you never know....:lol:

I doubt he'd want to go to a team where he has an actual chance in becoming the starter. That would take time away from his daily routine.

Rumor has it that David will have some very specific demands if he's going to consider joining the Arizonians. They include but are not limited to:

1. A personal guarantee from Ken Whisenhunt that he will not be allowed to compete for or be considered for under any circumstances (including injury to all other QB's on the roster) the starting QB job.

2. A stipulation of maximum air temperature inside University of Phoenix Stadium in order to assure that it will not become uncomfortable to wear those cool looking white gloves while standing on the sidelines on game-day.

3. A guarantee that any member of the media - or random fan for that matter - will be permanently barred from all team facilities if at any time they refer to the team in print or over the air as the "Carr"dinals - thereby creating expectations, and putting pressure on poor David, or making fun of him, as the case may be.

Patrick Willis isn't thrilled with the idea of signing David Carr
Posted by Mike Florio on March 6, 2010 10:02 AM ET
As quarterback David Carr moves closer to signing with the 49ers, a highly-placed league source tells Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, "It's the 49ers' to lose."

Though that explanation seems to overstate, to say the least, the desirability of the first overall pick in the 2002 draft, who has been bouncing around the league the past three years, there's one fairly high-profile member of the team that wants to see Carr bounce somewhere else.

Linebacker Patrick Willis has launched an anti-Carr campaign on his Twitter page, per Maiocco.

"We have three quarterbacks that are better than [Carr]," Willis says. "That's a waste of time."

He also says that, if the team is going to get another quarterback, it should "spend money on a difference maker," and Willis specifically points out Mike Vick.

Patrick Willis' thoughts on Carr possible becoming a 49er.

49ers agreed to terms with QB David Carr on a two-year contract.
The move doesn't affect Alex Smith or promising third-stringer Nate Davis' roster spots, but could cost Shaun Hill his. The 49ers' idea is to bring in a stronger-armed backup with a Smith-like skill set to lead the offense similarly if Smith goes down. Carr, who turns 31 in July, played sparingly during his two years in New York as Eli Manning's backup, but was effective in preseason action. Terms of the deal are still unknown

i'm sure willis is really happy, twitter is becoming the player's voice

that being said, i actually saw Carr burn the blitz a few times with the Giants and that is something he could never do here. he has made a bit of improvement since he left...not saying much,

but from what I have seen with my own eyes (and the morbid curiousity has had me follow Carr a bit post-Texans) he has made some progress. His release point is still low but he still has the major league arm and above average accuracy. I would say he is about as good as Alex Smith but Vick does make more sense than Carr as a potential starter.

Vick is going to at least get you a Wildcat option, and if he beats out Smith in an open competition, good for him. I am no Mike Vick guy, but he served some time, he lost a lot of money and connections, and he is just trying to try and salvage a once fruitful and promising career. I am sure $$ had something to do with Carr over any move for Vick...not to mention, Vick is still an Eagle last time I checked, and they may want a return on their investment from the 49ers...Carr was free

While Carr is worthless as a starter, he can still make someone a decent backup and another throwing arm in camp. And he's probably a lot cheaper than what we paid for Orlovsky.

Hervoyel
03-10-2010, 08:48 AM
In all honesty here I won't even care if Carr goes to S.F., suddenly "gets it", and becomes a star (infinitely unlikely) for them. I think that his selection as first overall/ever draft pick was a huge mistake by the Texans and that just about anybody was going to fail at that.

At the same time I think that Carr was wholly unprepared to be an NFL starter and that the only chance he has to change that is an intense bout of growing up. His mindset and level of dedication was never what it needed to be for success in the NFL. If that changes then he has a slim chance of getting better and becoming servicable. If not then we've seen his best football without question. I'm pretty sure that's the case anyway but still, I won't think the Texans screwed up by parting with him if he experiences some success eventually. Whatever success he does have from here on out (if any) would never have happened here. I'm convinced of that.

Some rookies can handle starting from day one and some can't. Carr wasn't ready for this. Capers and Casserly should have known better than to do that from the very start.

___________________

And having now read that article by Justice I think he weaves a lot of the same myths about Carr in and out of some true statements about the Texans early years. He does what he always does and that is gloss over the parts he doesn't want to be honest about. That's a Richard Justice trademark. More lining for the bird cage from Dick.

Exactly. Carr never learned how to read defenses and that was his biggest problem. He didn't know where to go with the ball when blitzes were coming and a big reason for that is because he never studied a lot of film like QB's are supposed to. I think that was the biggest contributing factor at why Carr never developed. He didn't study other teams well enough to recognize the blitz packages that they would use from week to week to have an idea of where it was coming from on play to play. In his 5th season here it became very obvious that he was more of the problem than the O line was. He made the O line look much worse than what it was and then he did the same thing the minute he got an opportunity in Carolina.

Probably not much better if at all. Banks could read defenses and read the blitz a lot better though. He played pretty well when he had his chances though. I'll give him that. Carr had way more potential though, but Carr never wanted to do his homework and study other teams like QB's are supposed to. The problem with Carr was that he was granted as a star in Houston before he ever did anything. Everyone loved the guy, because he was our QB with our new football team that we finally got after so many years without a team. He was supposed to be our prince. He looked good, he spoke well and carried a nice image for himself, so people wanted so badly for him to succeed and the women in this city worshiped him. He had it all without having to earn any of it.

I'm dying to see him play as a starter in the regular season as I was when he went to Carolina. People seem to think for some reason that he was just mismanaged here in Houston and that his inefficiencies was all on Capers and our offensive staff. They seem to forget that Kubes couldn't work anything with him either. It's obvious that the Texans failed to get proper protection for him at the line, but it isn't because they didn't try. They drafted the best O lineman in football who never played a down and then gave out bad contracts to poor O lineman and neglected the O line to some degree, but people seem to think that poor Carr just got the bad luck of being on the shitty Texans who didn't know what they were doing. I have to remind people that he did get to play with ANdre Johnson who was a stud from the jump and he did have a very good RB in Davis and Gaffney wasn't all that bad really. Carr didn't put in the work here and that was his own fault. He didn't study tape and put in the extra hours like all young QB's are supposed to.

I really hope that he gets to play in SF. I know exactly what Carr will do on the field. It's hilarious to watch when he's not wearing battle red. :hurrah:

yep. I hate when local journalists go revisionist history to the uneducated. Carr was directly responsible for at least a third of his sack total by holding on to the ball and just making bad decisions. And then we find out that he never studied and could not read defenses, so my own guesstimation is that he's probably responsible for at least two/thirds of his sack totals. Plus, he's just a crappy QB, and was probably mediocre at best when we drafted him.

But, "he looked good in a Texans uni", so the marketing angle is undeniable.

The Niners may have brought Carr in because of a solid "familiarity" to their type of offense...........one with no OL. :roast:

Finding a backup quarterback — or a training-camp challenger for Alex Smith, or a shot-in-the-dark new starter, or a scout-team tackling dummy for Patrick Willis — was not the 49ers' top priority this offseason.

No disrespect intended to David Carr, who agreed to come aboard last Sunday and is expected to report Monday for the start of 49ers' offseason workouts.

Nor is any back-slapping meant here for Shaun Hill, a humble servant and successful fill-in who'll become the odd-man out.

Unless the 49ers upgrade their offensive line soon, they are exposing any quarterback (and their offense overall) to familiar agony.

Carr's arrival — and his Houston Texans draft-bust days — serves as a painful reminder about what quarterbacks (and power-running, vertical-passing offenses) need to succeed. That boils down to having a wall of 300-pound behemoths who can block with wonderful knee-brace synchronicity.

It puzzles me how Justice can say Carr didn't have a decent QB coach. Especially when we were being fed so much about how then OC, Chris Palmer was a great QB coach for Warren Moon, and Troy Aikman.

That being said, I liked how Justice made up for the excuses for Carr by saying how he wasn't much of a leader and didn't love football like Manning or other QBs. That to me was the one thing that I hated about Carr. Especially when he wouldn't make 3&1 and would come off the field smiling.

The commenter that said Carr doesn't have mileage must not have been paying attention to his record setting sacks in 02 and how when Schaub came in those numbers dramatically went down.

They need to youtube Brian Baldinger's analysis on David Carr to Matt Schaub. That will let 9er fans really know.

Well! Since I've never been a HATER of David Carr, and my second fav team in the NFL is the NINERS, I'm happy with this signing. He's not as big a loser as some other people I know!!

I hope his year with the Niners is a successful one!

The Niners just announced that they will be TRIPPLING the cost of all the Field Boxes. Since this will only be accompanied by pre-game field pass (no true cost to management), food and drinks (minimal outlay to all in comparison to this huge boost........unless you're a horse, maybe), premier parking (walking 1/4 mile instead of 1/2 mile)and seat cushions ($5 dollar wholesale item).................I can only extrapolate that ownership expects that fans will be willing to put out monies like this solely based on the acquisition of Carr!

Interesting that the 49ers rate Carr enough that they have traded Shaun Hill to the Lions for a 7th rounder.

Hill played well for them when he got a chance, I would of thought he would have been the #2 at worst in San Fran.

There's always someone who thinks they can fix a player. The best thing Carr could have done post-Texans was find some place to hide out and lay low. He tried it in Carolina but Jake got hurt and Carr was forced to go out on the field and show the world what we all knew when he left here. Frankly I'm surprised the 49ers bit on him. I didn't think two years in New York was long enough for memories to fade.

While Carr is worthless as a starter, he can still make someone a decent backup and another throwing arm in camp.

Not saying I'd want him, just sayin.....

The only thing stopping David Carr from being a bona fide starter in this league, is David Carr.

Some people need to get cut by a couple of team before they get it. Some guys need to be Alex Smith's back-up before they "get it."

But there is no reason David Carr can't be the next Rich Gannon. He's a talented mofo, and he isn't a head-case ala Ryan Leaf.

I'm not pulling for him, rooting for him, or even wishing him well, I'm just saying.

Under the NFLPA Pension Schedule, with all of his time in the League, David will be making out like a bandit for standing around and holding a clipboard for the past few years.

Was on the road this past Sunday, coming back from a Santa Fe weekend with the wifey.

On the Sirius station "EndZone" two guys talked about Carr and 9ers.

One guy was saying that he was never given a chance in Houston, didn't fit in with Carolina, but was starting to show progress in NY.

The other guy, the one who actually does his homework, told him in pretty short manner about Carr's real issues. He mentioned the following, and did it like a surgeon who was needing to finish up quickly to make his tee time:

1. He said he spoke with the members of the offensive line, after Carr left Houston, and those guys said that they were damn tired of being blamed for the guy's sacks.

2. David locked onto his primary and didn't go through reads fast enough

3. He didn't know how the hell to read a defense, pre-snap, in order to know that his primary was NOT gonna' be an option at all once the ball was snapped--So therefore we are reverted back to the issue of locking into his primary.

4. Which therefore caused David to hold the ball too long, and you can't do that if defenses know you only look at one guy each time.

I tried to call in, but could never get through. I was going to tell them they need to look at the sack numbers in Schaub's first season in Houston. I think it was cut in HALF, IIRC. You don't cut sacks in half (overnight) if it's the line's fault.

So the first guy backs off his stance (even though we all should know, by now, that these radio and TV sports shows are contrived and fake with their two guys locking horns and acting like they really have two "true" opposing takes on it--John Clayton and Salisbury Steakface on ESPN were the worst actors in that sort of situation, IMO).

Anyways, I wished I had gotten through.

Carr signed with my 2nd favorite team also and he was pretty much a big loser there also. I am real glad the Giants 86'ed this guy so I can FINALLY not have to root for the guy.

They want to move to Santa Clara and force SF's hand is more what I would imagine. Santa Clara already has stadium plans will finish environmental impact soon and has a very good site picked that most of the Bay Area can get to. The current park sucks. Hard to get to, no real mass transit that can get there and is way to old to be in league with most parks. Plus the city is getting crippled by the economy and the mayor wants to be Lt. Governor. Why not raise prices ... lower attendance and stop the die hards from pulling for the team to stay?

From ProFootballWeekly (http://www.profootballweekly.com/2010/03/21/carr-addition-doesnt-excite-49ers-fans)

Niners Nation has never really fully warmed up to QB Alex Smith, which led many to believe the addition of David Carr would generate a positive buzz. But the way we hear it, the consensus in the Bay Area is that Carr and Smith are pretty much cut from the same inconsistent cloth, and that few fans have gone out of their way to instantly anoint Carr as the new starter under center by any means.

Ya thunk??

Yeah, because Buffalo will likely move its franchise to Canada.

Took me a little bit to catch on, but I chuckled when I made the connection.
