Since I'm on the subject of sports, I've got to ask the question; What the hell are the Giants thinking? Signing David Carr? Haven't they been watching this guy play? He had 5 years to prove himself in Houston after being the first pick in the 2002 draft, and any way you look at it, he was a monumental bust. When the Texans finally cut him, he was picked up by Carolina where he continued to display his complete inability to play the game. I mean, they ended up starting Vinny Testaverde over him. That's right, 44 year old Vinny Testaverde. And when he didn't cut it, they went to undrafted, rookie QB Matt Moore. One thing David Carr does have is the ability to turn almost every passing play into a sack. But according to the Giants:

"We look forward to working with him on the fundamentals of the game," Coughlin said. "We do have some technical things to work on, but we are anxious to work with him in our program. If we can place him in a positive environment, perhaps he can reclaim some of the things that people saw to draft him in the first round."

Uh, yeah, whatever. If somebody is the first pick in the draft and going into his seventh year in the league, the last thing he should be working on is "fundamentals." To paraphrase Geraldine Ferraro, if this guy was a Black QB, would he be in the position he's in today? Just a question.
