Given a different OC, chance to learn for a year or so on the bench, and better line, I feel he could have had a bright future.
Must not be so terribly horrible now, since he keeps getting the back-up gig to Eli, and this year many could argue there was better potential options for the Giants but they still choose to re-sign Carr.
