Flavor of the Day - David Carr


So far we here at Lov & Jerry's QB Shop haven't been able to find a flavor that really suits your pallettes. Today we bring you David Carr. David Carr is a bit different as he is not a free agent, but unlike a lot of the other flavors he is still relatively young.

Carr is an interesting topic. I've always though he had a ton of talent, but he was never on a team that had a good running game and he was sacked more than any other QB in his career with the Houston Texans. So the question is are the 262 sacks he took and the 70 INTs he threw in his 6 years with Houston and Carolina more of an issue of him being indecisive with a slow delivery and poor pocket presence or was he not given proper protection and enough weapons? We can give him a run game, but we don't know if we can protect him. We certainly cannot give him a weapon as good as Andre Johnson. Carr has throw for over 14,000 and 60 TDs in his years with the Panthers and Texans.

Carr is currently the backup with the Giants. He has no shot at being a starter again behind Manning, so he certainly would welcome the change of scenery.

What is your take on Carr?
