Yeah, he's a palooka. A few jobbers on Jordan's NBA Championship teams also got rings. Same goes for David Carr if he "gets a ring" in two weeks.

I don't hate it that he might get one, for one simple reason: He's not a factor in their success. Yeah, he can say he has a ring...but it was Eli at the wheel. Not David.

I don't hold animosity toward David Carr. Ultimately, it was our owner who drafted him and stuck with him that first Kubiak year. He was just doing what he could do, and it didn't work out.

I didn't care for his snarky comments (jabs at the Texans) when he landed with the Panthers, so that's a minor quibble I hold onto.

If Carr can get a ring a decade into his sorry career...hat's off to him. How he sticks on the bottom of rosters is amazing. Dude's obviously got a talent, unfortunately for us, it wasn't for playing the QB position.

Well, he's already got a ring from being on the Giants in 2008.

And to answer the other question, no, he hasn't taken a snap all season.

Please check your facts first... David Carr does NOT have a ring with the NY Giants.. He joined the team in 2008 after they had already won it...
If he wins it this season, good for him.. I have no ill will towards the man..he just didn't work out here..I moved on !

No sarcasm.

Agreed. Carr came here confident and ready to take on the world. A Swiss-cheese offensive line made him the hardest hit QB in football and for two straight years the most sacked. The man became so damned gun shy that he became USELESS as a starting QB.
If he's backing up Eli Manning and gets a superbowl ring out of it more power to the muff-hugga. I never had anything against him and I aint mad at him.

Dude looked good in a Texans uniform. Great picture for a 3D souvenir soda cup, as well a a bunch of inaugural posters and other crass merchandise to pimp...errr...market to a bunch of hungry NFL fans in Houston.

Dude admitted that he was the last to arrive and first to leave practices. Eventually even fessed up to not studying game film or taking his career seriously. These are not the fundamental qualities of a QB destined for greatness, no matter how many flimsy reasons are made up to justify his eternal suckiness. A cook cannot overcome the taste of bad ingredients, no matter how much pepper he unloads into the recipe.

Yeah, that offensive line 'broke' him...NOT. Just another long line of empty excuses perpetuated by those that refuse to cash the reality check. The fact of the matter was that David Carr's best potential was to be a Trent Dilfer-type QB if he had applied himself and was drafted by a team that would sit him on the bench to ferment for a few seasons until he was ripe enough to be a so-called "game manager".

I don't hate the dude, but I'm not going to wear blinders to the fact that his true potential - if fully realized - was destined to be a mediocre QB.

His career arch has proven this reality. No player is 'broke' unless they are physically unable to perform. That is not the case with Carr. His problem is between his ears and his lack of heart. He's content to be a career backup, looking good in camp as an extra arm to help with 3RD and 4TH string receivers. God forbid if Eli goes down and David Carr is taking snaps in a Super Bowl.

Never understood all the hate toward DC. This franchise put a boat load of crap on the shoulders of a young man who didn't know how to handle it. Just because he didn't turn out to be a Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Aaron Rogers, or any other "elite" QB, does not warrent the hate tag some of you put on him. JMO! He ALONE did not set this franchise back nine years!! Not trying to start ANOTHER thread on the pro's and con's of DCs years with us, so I will not respond to any argumenative comments. We've certainly had enough of those over the years. Just stating that I will be happy for him if he gets to celebrate with the Giants. Nothing more, nothing less! Life's to short to hate on a football player who didn't turn out to be what we wanted him to be. Happens ALL THE TIME!!

I'll be ecstatic for Carr because all the hate for him should just die and that would give him a psychological advantage over Houston for being a winner now. They play for Rings and that is what will make Carr a winner if the Giants were to win. I know it would just eat some people up alive to see David with his first ever ring prior to the Texans and I would love to see that occur and laugh if it does. Enough is enough with the Carr hate already. Do I smell venom and jealously towards Carr? Yes. I think it is time to dispose and ditch the hate and move on because Carr has done so. Now I really do hope the Giants win the game and I mean that sincerely too.

I don't hate the guy. I'm ambivalent about him as a person.

But, as a Texans fan, he was part of the problem when he was here. He admits that he did not apply himself to being a better QB, did not even try to show leadership, was the last to arrive and first to leave practices, and never learned how to study defenses and break down game film. He admitted this stuff, so it's not even speculative.

As a fanatic of the Houston Texans, I'm going to protect my team. And David Carr was a slacker, someone who took the money and ran with it, and never had any desire to be anything other than a mediocre career-backup QB.

Not hate, just being pragmatic about our team's history.

I could care less if he gets a ring or not. I'm rooting for the Patriots, but I'm not investing any emotion in the outcome of the game. I'm a Texans fan, and our 2011 season is over, so the Super Bowl just interests me as an NFL fan.

I think that David Carr started out with the Texans as a very enthusiastic and dedicated young quarterback who loved his young team. He tried very hard to win games while facing defensive players charging through the O-line licking their chops knowing that yet another sack was within seconds. Finally, IMO he was burned out far too early in his career, and seemed to have never gotten the confidence or will back to emerge into another starting position.

If his team wins the championship next week, I can smile for him and my only wish is if he could have been on a different team, smiles.

Unless Eli goes down in the superbowl and Carr actually does something who cares? Can you imagine trying to brag on that. I've got a superbowl ring, really from doing what? Backup QB to Eli. He'd be laughed out of the bar.
Not that I harbor any hate on Carr, sure he was a lazy medicore QB. But so are most of the QB's that ever get to the pros. The only anger I have is on the people that kept him around for as long as he was here.

If Carr can get a ring a decade into his sorry career...hat's off to him. How he sticks on the bottom of rosters is amazing. Dude's obviously got a talent, unfortunately for us, it wasn't for playing the QB position.

What did you think of him as a prospect coming out of Fresno St.?

An interesting little tidbit I read this year is that Harbaugh, who was then an offensive assistant for Oakland, had Carr graded out as a 6th rounder. He had Romo as a 2nd rounder. Wonder what the league consensus was for him as a prospect.

What did you think of him as a prospect coming out of Fresno St.?

An interesting little tidbit I read this year is that Harbaugh, who was then an offensive assistant for Oakland, had Carr graded out as a 6th rounder. He had Romo as a 2nd rounder. Wonder what the league consensus was for him as a prospect.

Bill Parcells had a formula that went something like this .

1. A Senior
2. At least a 3 year starter
3. At least 23 wins
4. Graduated college

Carr had the first requirement .

You started this gary




Next year, they're going to be draping a banner from the rafters of Reliant that says, 2011 AFC South Division Champions..... that says winner.

Then instead of saying, "I apologize, I'm wrong." You go off on a tangent & suggest you have higher expectations & standards. You don't know what my expectations are.... where my standards are.

& that has nothing to do with the fact that the Houston Texans are winners.Of course. When they win it all.

Dude looked good in a Texans uniform. Great picture for a 3D souvenir soda cup, as well a a bunch of inaugural posters and other crass merchandise to pimp...errr...market to a bunch of hungry NFL fans in Houston.

Dude admitted that he was the last to arrive and first to leave practices. Eventually even fessed up to not studying game film or taking his career seriously. These are not the fundamental qualities of a QB destined for greatness, no matter how many flimsy reasons are made up to justify his eternal suckiness. A cook cannot overcome the taste of bad ingredients, no matter how much pepper he unloads into the recipe.

Yeah, that offensive line 'broke' him...NOT. Just another long line of empty excuses perpetuated by those that refuse to cash the reality check. The fact of the matter was that David Carr's best potential was to be a Trent Dilfer-type QB if he had applied himself and was drafted by a team that would sit him on the bench to ferment for a few seasons until he was ripe enough to be a so-called "game manager".

I don't hate the dude, but I'm not going to wear blinders to the fact that his true potential - if fully realized - was destined to be a mediocre QB.

His career arch has proven this reality. No player is 'broke' unless they are physically unable to perform. That is not the case with Carr. His problem is between his ears and his lack of heart. He's content to be a career backup, looking good in camp as an extra arm to help with 3RD and 4TH string receivers. God forbid if Eli goes down and David Carr is taking snaps in a Super Bowl.

^^^^ THIS

You know DC wasn't chompin' at the bit to get into the game, more like tebowing on the sideline, "please protect Eli". :D

DC is getting a SB ring for being the official clip board holder to Eli Manning. I must say..."good job" DC! Will your SB ring have a picture of a clipboard on the side?

One that did not play in one single play this year. He is the clipboard MVP.

"He" didn't get it. The Giants got it. The fact that he did not even play a SINGLE down this season rings hollow to me.

Don't get me wrong...he gets his ring...but if I were in his shoes, I wouldn't be overly excited about it if I truly didn't contribute.

Nevermind...he did contribute. He took holding a clip board to all new heights this year. Give him a ring.

I was just listening to one of the members of the Giants defense on the NFL XM/Sirius, he said the defense was getting frustrated or what-not about not being able to get to Tom Brady all game.

David told them to knock the ball down. He said it frustrates the heck out of QBs & counts as a wasted down, just like a sack (minus the lost yardage).

He said they went out & did just that.

Pierre-Paul has been knocking down passes all season long. He didn't learn it from Carr in the Superbowl in some moment of sudden clarity.

I hear many say there is no "i" in team. Imagine if both qb's were injured in the game, and no one was left but Carr, then he goes in and does a Tebow or Yates and wins the game. Doesn't sound possible, but stranger things have happened. I don't know why, but for some reason after either trading or cutting Carr, they ended up taking him back.

Again, sports are played for titles and Carr will probably get a few more by the time he is done. All he has to do is just stay with the Giants good for him.
