lol, just shocking.
I actually caught some of that Giants game when Carr was playing, and dude still has "happy feet" in the pocket. He never seems to settle down to make his reads, and yep, he used the dump pass quite a bit.
LOL. The Onion couldn't come up with a funnier article
He is having flashbacks of playing in Houston and thinks the second the line breaks down even in the slightest he better get out. If Manning goes down the NY crowd will eat Carr alive.
Was he still wearing his "mittens"?
heh, even some of the comments under the article bring back memories. Anyone remember posts like this one?
y'know, I didn't even notice. I was too busy being hypnotized by those happy feet of his.
This one made me laugh:
He has a cannon ... as long as the receiver is within 3 yards of the line of scrimmage. How can anyone knowingly say they are a Carr fan? What has he EVER done to earn fans?
His regression is anything BUT surprising. For those of you that might have watched the game, if you squinted just right, you would have sworn that you were watching the OL of the Texans of old. They certainly borrow their "olay" technique, giving the QB's virtually no pass protection. Given familiar sequences, this brought back haunting childhood memories and reverted Carr to his reflex childhood responses. Sometimes one can never shake their childhood post-traumatic syndrome (in his case, 249 sacks). Carr most likely never be able to "grow up" to become a QB............a real NFL QB........under fire.
I have to give Hulk75 his props because through it all, he always has David's back.
Let me preface this by stating ONCE AGAIN, I was against drafting Carr with the 1st pick. Having said that, can you blame the guy for being gun shy when the pocket collapses? I mean, it's a miracle he doesn't have a visual, nervous, tick !
Carr sucks and set this franchise back five years. The best thing about Carr is that the franchise knows what bad looks like. Our offensive line improved immensely when he was not in the line up.
The title of this thread is funny as hell.
Too bad other players had to pay the price by being sacrificed on the altar of David Carr while the coaches, front office, and ownership figured that out.
Carr never had any pocket awareness and that is one key ingredient to being a NFL QB. He is Rob Johnson with better hair. Sure, they both would play better with better hair, I mean better O-lines, but they would both eventually sack themselves in critical situations. If the NFL network had a list of incredible self-sacking QB's with bangin' hair, David Carr and Rob Johnson would be one - two.
Interestingly, Palmer has a thing for incredible self-sacking QB's apparently. Yes, the 3rd guy on the right is Rob "I sacks myself" Johnson.
I really would love to see Carr get a shot to start this season for like two games in the middle of division race in like week 10 or something like that.
I just want to see how the NY media reacts to the play of David Carr. Sorry, but I just want to see the train wreck in NY.
They both had that California cool also .
They should've never let go of the "Hefty Lefty". :snicker:
i watched 3 plays of that game, including one sack, and another pass which he got rid of way too quickly cause he thought he had guys in his face. Carr hasnt changed a bit.
