Default David Carr is now a Carolina Panther

I am actually happy about this move, John Fox can make champagne from crap when it comes to Qbs I hope he can again.

I think everyone will come to find out that David Carrr is a much better QB than previously thought once he's got some protection. Great move by Carolina.

Why? Because he had no O-Line. This the best move the Panthers have made in the 21st century next to drafting Smith and getting Stephen Davis

I cant help but be afraid that this is one of those media friendly FA moves that doesnt actually work out so well (see: the Panthers offseason last year and every move the Redskins ever make) but Carr has the talent to take over and be more successful than any previous Carolina QB. I'm just afraid if he'll progress any more than he did in Houston. The reason Fox likes picking up QBs off the scrap heap is because he doesnt like developing them...so I guess we'll see if Carr was still a work in progress, in which case don't look for him to get much better in Carolina, or if he just needed a better supporting cast.

It'll be interesting to see how Delhomme's "chuck and pray" mentality meshes with Carr's "Captain Checkdown" reputation to be sure

Maake is a solid tackle and is doing everything right, Shaun Williams was injured and Hartwig got injured... I don't know how anyone can be disappointed in who we signed last year... Williams maybe but everyone else was great.

With Carr they should finally beable to get the ball deep to Steve Smith, Delhomme's arm was just lacking.

One could do worse than checking down to DeAngelo Williams (ex. another Delhomme sack/forced fumble). I think the Panthers would serve themselves well by trying to incorporate him into the offense as a whole, as say Brian Westbrook.

I certainly wouldn't mind more passes to DeAngelo, he's at his best in the open field

That said, just because Carr's rep is to throw checkdowns doesn't mean he's any better in broken plays than Delhomme. In fact, he fumbles much more than Delhomme and everyone knows about his sack problems. Granted, Carolina's line isn't historically poor, but it's hardly any better than league average.

BlindSite, I mispoke about the Panthers' previous FA moves as it was early and I was tired. Maake is not a stats guy I know, but his play was not great beyond the stats. Average for what he does at best, not worth half his contract at worst. Still, I'm prepared to give him another shot as he wasn't the only guy on the Panthers who had a down year. That said, I was wrong to blast our FA moves. We always went after the people we wanted and the media just latched on the moves last year with hopes of riding us to the SB. Shaun Williams and Hartwig were by no means guys who were names moreso than players when they signed with us, though Williams was little of either. Also, hindsight 20/20, etc

Signing Carr just seems uncharacteristic to me compared to the way business has been done in the past (including last year I suppose), but maybe that's not a bad thing.

Word on the contract is 2 years/6 mil. A little pricey, but Delhomme's original contract was $2mil so if you adjust for inflation that's not bad for a quality back up

Now Carr finally has an offensive line and a great WR core. I others have said, he will be a Pro Bowler soon. Thank god they signed him, now they wont pursue Kyle Boller!

I said in the other thread that the Panthers would probably be his best situation. Good for him. If the Panthers were smart, they wouldn't play him for a single snap next season unless it is absolutely necessary. Let him ease in and learn the system, don't force anything. Delhomme has been adequate the past few years and even caught lightning in a bottle when he brought them to the Super Bowl. I think he is, at best, an average NFL QB, which is better than most QB's that have played in the league can say, but David Carr still has the chance to be a great NFL QB. Granted, it may be too late, so we'll see...

But smart move on his part.

Smart move... if he can't get it together in Carolina... where will he? Maybe the cooler uniform will do the trick.
