Default If Carr was an actual Car, what kind of car would he be??

When we drafted carr #1 overall... i imagine most of us thought we had a ferrari 599 (he did throw 40 td's his senior season) who was a year into manufactoring, and after 1 *maybe* 2 more years of hand crafted production (seasons), he would be a specimen of the industry.. in carr's case, the NFL... So, this brings me to the question of the thread... What kind of car would Carr be??

I am going with a Ford Excursion... he is expensive and he's almost impossible to take on long drives (hint hint). As a Ford, he constantly is in need of tune ups (in the football sense Kubes diggin into him, not in the injury sense) because things fall apart (fumbles, sacks, etc...) before major breakdowns.. (fords are made to be cheap fixes, so they break down quite often,..football breakdown sense: 4-12, 5-11, 7-9, 2-14, 4-9). All of the breakdowns can not be accredited to Carr (or car) himself, alot of the blame has to be placed on the dismal quality of production around him (the mass production of american cars makes our engineering low quality) just as the lack of quality depth on our team contributes to carr's troubles [i guess, in a way],.. not exluding the former executive engineer - casserly (old gm)...

so, what do ya'll say?? any ideas?? please do not turn this into a "love/hate carr thread" because that is not what i intended.. peace out

He's that FREAKIN van they show on the insurance industries safety rating commercial. You know the one that gets caved in when it hits the big a** wall that's right in front of it and coming too fast.

Carr is a broken down Pinto...

Not really worth all the money that it would take to fix him....

Of course that's what you intended; to start an inflammatory thread. What kind of car would he be? He wouldn't be a car, he's a tank. Almost indestructible. And he will be a success in the NFL after he leaves here, hopefully in a position to come back and haunt us.

I would say that the car that best represents carr is al bundy's beat up dodge with the 8-track player.

He's the President of The United State's limousine. Fast, strong, and tough as nails. It is just laying low waiting for the Secret Service (offensive line) to show up.

Volvo.

They are nice, average, workmanlike cars that have nothing all that special about them other than that they can take a severe beating.

Carr is a DeLorean. He looks like an exotic car (franchise QB) and people think he's an exotic car but when you open the hood you find a Renault 4 cylinder engine in there that just can't put out enough power to match the looks.

No, they won't. Because he will be an NFL starter for a while.
