Posting some of the highlights before the obligatory asshat post comes in from not having read the article.

Quote:
Most players, given a taste of the NFL, will drop everything for another chance.

But former No. 1 overall pick David Carr turned down a pair of chances to sign in recent weeks, after his 2-year-old daughter was diagnosed with diabetes, and he chose to stay home with his wife to help care for her.....

“We’ll see what happens later. But for the time being, there are things that are more important.”

One of their five sons has also been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, so they have experience dealing with the condition. But since his daughter Grace is 2, the management requires more constant attention, so Carr skipped a pair of chance to collect a big payday, and perhaps play, to be a dad........

“The thing with diabetes is it’s constant, like every hour it’s something. ‘What did she eat for lunch?’ She’s 2, she can’t tell us, so we have to figure it out. While I was trying to make that decision for those couple of days, she was always there, always in need, always running up and giving me a hug. She didn’t know anything else, she just knew her dad was here. That stuff makes the decision easier.”

And on a week where families will gather to give thanks, the Carrs will be together thanks to dad’s decision to put them first.
One thing about Carr and his family: he talks the talk and he walks the walk. Hoping for the best for him.

Good for him, but let's not pretend he turned down multi year mega offers. 6 weeks of emergency back up role isn't worth the peace of mind of being at home for that...especially when he already has millions in the account.

David Carr was always a classy guy that I admired and respected. He was great for the community and the city of Houston was lucky to have him for what he did off the field. It's just a shame his career turned out to be a bust, but at least he won a Super Bowl ring with the Giants as Eli Manning's backup.

Type 1 diabetes is mainly genetic with a number of theorized triggers.

A source informed of the team's plans told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network on Monday that free agents David Carr, John Skelton and Tyler Thigpen will work out for the Cowboys.

He always did like the Cowboys. Was on record saying he wore #8 because of Troy Aikman.

He wore #8 because of Hasselbeck.


I know you said the Aikman thing as if you knew what you were talking about & I know "no one" would wear a number because of "Hasselbeck" but... it's true. In my "David Carr-bashing days" I remember I didn't even have to make that up.

Really? I remember hearing that he grew up a Cowboys fan and loved Aikman. Maybe that was mentioned in that SI article?

BTW, this should be in the NFL Section however I am on my IPad and it's a pain to moderate from this thing. One of our mods will move it soon.

No. I'm right. He's said it before. I know plenty about what I'm talking about. Even others in this thread recall that.
