Well, I was totally wrong. After his spectacular flameout in Carolina, I really did not think that David Carr would be on an NFL roster in 2008. But word on the street is that the first pick in the history of the Houston Texans signed a one-year deal with the defending champs today. My favorite part of the development is this little quote:
That's the same Chris Palmer who was fired by your Houston Texans two (2) weeks into the 2005 campaign in large part because of his inability to get Carr to play like a professional quarterback. America...what a country!

Although we heard the same thing from Carolina fans several months back, it appears that Giants fans have also managed to rationalize Carr's performance by accepting the classic "He Never Had A Chance" theory. For their sake, I hope Eli plays every snap in 2008.
