  NFL | Derek Carr, David Carr on same team?    Thu Mar 6, 09:07 PM

Fresno State QB Derek Carr said some teams have talked with him about the possibility of drafting him and signing his brother, free-agent QB David Carr (Giants), as a mentor.

Footballguys view: A two-Carr garage if you will. Derek is his own man, even though his game is somewhat similar to David's. We'll see if Carr can be a first-round pick like his older brother.

  Giants | Coach says Curtis Painter won No. 2 QB job    Sun Sep 1, 11:51 AM

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said the team decided to keep QB Curtis Painter over QB David Carr because Painter performed better during the preseason. 'We simply based it on the preseason,' Coughlin said. 'From the standpoint of all the evaluations, it pointed to the fact that Painter had a better preseason.'

Footballguys view: Eli Manning is one of the most durable quarterbacks in the league, so we are only slightly more likely to see Painter this year as we are to see Carr, even if Carr remains a free agent for the entire season.

  Giants | 12 players let go    Sat Aug 31, 07:11 PM

The New York Giants have released QB David Carr, RB Ryan Torain, CB Terrence Frederick, WR Julian Talley, LB Kyle Bosworth, DE Adrian Tracy, DE Adewale Ojomo, DT Marvin Austin, OG Eric Herman, OG Bryant Browning, WR Kevin X. Hardy and WR Marcus Harris.

Footballguys view: Getting rid of Torain is interesting given the fact Andre Brown will be out for some time with a broken leg. Carr was expected to be the primary backup behind Eli Manning but loses out on the job to Curtis Painter. Rookie Ryan Nassib will be the team's third-string developmental QB. Some team should have interest in Carr as veteran depth.

New York Giants QB David Carr is expected to win the backup quarterback job over QB Curtis Painter, according to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com.

  Giants | All four QBs expected to play    Thu Aug 8, 10:01 PM

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said the team will try to get all four quarterbacks in their first preseason game. QB Eli Manning will start the game and get 12 to 15 snaps. QB David Carr will be the second quarterback in, but Coughlin did not say if QB Curtis Painter or QB Ryan Nassib will be the third quarterback.

Footballguys view: The Giants know what they have in Carr. We'd like to see the rookie Nassib get more playing time in the preseason to determine who much work he has to do at the pro level.

  Giants | Likely will keep three QBs    Mon Jul 15, 04:42 PM

The New York Giants likely will keep three quarterbacks on their final roster to allow QB Ryan Nassib develop. QB David Carr likely will be the No. 2 quarterback because Nassib may not be ready for that role.

Footballguys view: They haven't kept three QBs on the roster since 2007. Nassib was considered by some (Russ Lande, Greg Cosell) to be the best QB in the 2013 NFL draft. He fell to the fourth-round of the 2013 NFL draft but the Giants are hoping he can develop into a quality pro. Nassib throws with proper velocity and has a strong competitive spirit. He needs to play with more pocket presence and improve his technique if he wants to live up to his potential as a pro.

  Giants | Tom Coughlin wants David Carr back    Tue Mar 5, 03:25 PM

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said he wants the team to re-sign backup QB David Carr. 'I like the room with he and Eli and whoever else is in there," Coughlin said. 'Don't forget there's another side to David Carr. David Carr can run, he's fast, he's athletic, no matter who we're going to play he can be the opposition's quarterback and do it very well. He does a good job of it. He runs the option."

Footballguys view: Carr has made a nice career out of being a backup behind Eli Manning. He may want to move on to get a chance at starting somewhere else.

  Giants | David Carr likely to hit market    Fri Mar 1, 10:28 PM

Impending free-agent QB David Carr (Giants) is expected to hit the open market, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be a team interested in his services due to a past relationship between Carr and offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan.

Footballguys view: Carr has carved out a nice career for himself as a backup behind Eli Manning. If he goes to Tampa he would push starter Josh Freeman in training camp but we don't expect him to win the starting job. The Bucs want competition at every position according to head coach Greg Schiano.

  Giants | David Carr to look for chance to compete for QB job    Fri Mar 1, 02:24 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants impending free-agent QB David Carr is expected to test free agency because he wants to find a team where he can compete for the starting job.

Footballguys view: Carr has been a quality backup behind Eli Manning for years. Perhaps he's regained enough confidence to compete for a starting job. Many believed in his skill set when he came out of Fresno State and before he was constantly hammered behind the Texans poor O-Line years ago.

Footballguys view: The Broncos would like to add a free agent veteran to push Tim Tebow in camp. Tebow will enter training camp as the starter but needs to show improvement as a passer if he wants to hold onto the job.

Carr has been told by the coaching staff that he'll compete for the starting job although he must be considered a longshot to win the job. Kaepernick is the future of this team but will likely learn on the bench for most of his rookie season.

Footballguys view: His competition will likely be Alex Smith, so don't completely count Carr out. He still has zero fantasy relevance and we would expect Carr to lose the job soon after winning it in camp.

Footballguys view: The team should bring back Alex Smith for another season so he can start while future franchise QB Colin Kaepernick gets used to the pro game. Carr is scheduled to make $2.3 million this year and is likely to be released. The 49ers could sign a veteran like Matt Moore or Charlie Frye to fill the third-string role.

  49ers | Mike Singletary not ready to name Week 6 starting QB    Mon Oct 11, 10:49 AM

San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary said he was not ready to name QB Alex D. Smith his starter for Week 6, according to CBSSports.com. 'I've got to go back and look at the film,' Singletary said, adding that 'it's possible' he'll hand the job to backup QB David Carr.

Footballguys view: David Carr may not be the answer here either, but the 49ers have to figure something out in a hurry. The league's only winless team may eventually turn to third-string quarterback Troy Smith. They could also bounce between Carr and Alex Smith, which could have disastrous results.

  49ers | Mike Singletary calls out Alex Smith, Michael Crabtree    Mon Sep 13, 10:28 AM

San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary called out QB Alex D. Smith, WR Michael Crabtree and the offensive line in the locker room following the team's Week 1 game, reports Matt Maiocco, of CSNBayArea.com, according to a team source. Despite Smith's struggles, Singletary said he never once considered playing QB David Carr. 'Alex (Smith) is our quarterback,' Singletary said. 'At no time did I think about putting David Carr into the football game.'

Footballguys view: Alex Smith was supposed to be more comfortable as the 49ers starting quarterback this year, but the Seahawks made him look bad all day. We'll see if the team has a quick hook for the veteran quarterback in favor of a guy like David Carr or Troy Smith if the struggling continues.

Footballguys view: Troy Smith could actually win the job to be the primary backup behind Alex Smith. We'll see how David Carr responds to this competition. It's a win for the 49ers either way because now they have three experienced quarterbacks on the roster.

Footballguys view: Carr seems to have regained the confidence he lost after being battered for years in Houston. He'll be there in case Alex Smith struggles, but doesn't give the team a ton of upside as he's more of a caretaker backup quarterback.

  49ers | Carr's accuracy has improved over offseason    Wed Jun 23, 06:31 PM

Matt Maiocco, from CSNBayArea.com, reports backup QB David Carr did not throw the ball very well in those first couple camps as he was learning the system, but his accuracy improved a lot over the final part of the offseason program. He completed nearly 65 percent of his passes during 11-on-11 drills. He got about 20 percent of the repetitions. The 49ers saw enough in the offseason to feel as if the right move was made to sign him as veteran insurance while trading backup Shaun Hill to the Lions for a seventh-round pick in 2011.

Footballguys view: David Carr is no threat to Alex Smith's job, but the 49ers need him to be a reliable backup in case of injury to Smith.
