Carr could be Superman’s Kryptonite

I’m not in love with David Carr to the Panthers. The move does make some sense, since the team is becoming more and more disenchanted with starter Jake Delhomme, who will be 32 this year, and Carr is a young QB who has the physical tools to be an impact starter.

Early in the season last year, he looked improved, and the coaching staff was seemingly doing a great job with him. But then he started to regress, and as we know the Texans gave up on him.

The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups. If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]
