NFL: Questions don’t faze Giants’ QB

By Tom Canavan
Associated Press
ALBANY, N.Y. ó David Carr knows more than a few of his new teammates on the New York Giants are wondering about him.
Every time the top pick in the 2002 draft takes a snap with the Super Bowl champions, there are questions.
iI would be wondering, too,î Carr said between practices at the University of Albany. iWhat is his thing? Is it him or is it the team?î
Carr, 29, is a major question mark as the Giants prepare to defend their NFL title.
Signed as a potential backup to Eli Manning, Carr is trying to put his once-promising career back together. The Houston Texans gave up on him after five seasons in which he was physically pounded, and last year wasnít much better. Carr struggled while playing six games with the Carolina Panthers.
Carr signed with the Giants because they were a winning team that might offer him the chance to regain his confidence.
iFirst and foremost, when I came here, I told coach (Tom) Coughlin I wanted to help the team any way I can,î Carr said. iI am looking for them to help me. If we can both do that, it will be positive for everybody.î
Things have not come easy. Carr hurt a foot working out a week before camp opened and missed the first practices.
In his first two-plus days back, he has thrown a couple of interceptions, fumbled two snaps and tossed a few questionable passes.
iThere have been some ups and some downs ó mostly downs ó but I still know I can play,î Carr said.
