David Carr Q and A

"Strahan is a good football player. He is probably one of the most dominant pass rushers in the league. " - Texans QB David Carr on Giants DE Michael Strahan

Q: Between [Michael] Strahan and the secondary, could you talk about the challenge that lies ahead?
A: Strahan is a good football player. He is probably one of the most dominant pass rushers in the league. The guy has the sack record for goodness sake. He is going to be a presence out there. We are going to have to deal with him. My job is dealing with the secondary. They are a team that will give up some plays and then come up and tackle you. They are not going to let you get over the top of them. There are disciplined in what they do and they do it well.

Q: Will you put in some of the same plays or strategies you used against the Cowboys, an NFC East team, as the Giants?
A: I'm not sure. I haven't had a chance to look at the Dallas film in a long time. I know they do a lot of similar things. They are similar in the fact that they are both really disciplined on defense. Actually, their defensive scheme is that way so they make sure they are in the right position and they have some great athletes that can fly to the ball and make plays. It will probably be a similar approach, but I am not sure how they all match up yet.

Q: At this point in the season, what are you personally trying to accomplish in the last six games?
A: Just progress. It's as simple as that. But, it's also very difficult because each week the guys get paid to shut you down. So, to try to prove it every week is difficult to do, but that is was we are trying to get to right now.

Q: Has the NFL been everything you thought it would be?
A: I have enjoyed every second of it, honestly. This has been a blast. Every time I go to a new stadium and play a new team that I watched growing up, it's neat. I have enjoyed the time. I am just trying to get better and try to blend in a little bit.
