Where does David Carr rank?

Since I am still annoyed by the Giants quarterback group being ranked 17th by FOX Sports (which is, basically, a diss of David Carr) I thought I would go down the list of backups and see where Carr fits.

I am going to break these guys down into tiers, rather than rank them 1-32. I think that is pretty impossible.

The top tier.

  • Jeff Garcia, Oakland -- This guy is not a superstar, but he is good enough that he shouldn't be stuck in Oakland backing up Jamarcus Russell.
  • Derek Anderson/Brady Quinn, Cleveland -- Both of these guys should be starting somewhere.
  • Jon Kitna, Cowboys -- I really hate to give Dallas credit, but this was a great move. If Tony Romo gets hurt Dallas actually has a real player they can turn to.
  • Tyler Thigpen, Kansas City -- This guy was pretty good last season despite winning just one of 11 starts. Not a horrible safety net for Matt Cassel.
  • Matt Leinart, Arizona -- On reputation alone. Only Kurt Warner's brilliance is keeping him on the bench.

Then, I believe there is a second tier. I think Carr goes in here. The others in that group include.

The third tier.

Finally, the mostly unknown.
