Matt Moore

David Carr, who has backed up Eli Manning for four of the last five seasons, will likely leave the New York Giants and seek a back-up opportunity elsewhere.

Apparently, he wants a backup gig with more opportunities for playing time.

Carr, 33, will be a free agent on March 12, and reports have surfaced connecting the quarterback to a handful of destinations. Among them: the Cardinals, who are desperate for depth at the position, and the Buccaneers, where former Giants assistant Mike Sullivan is the offensive coordinator.

From Darin Gantt of the Charlotte Observer...

Carolina Panthers quarterback Matt Moore was taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation, after taking a vicious hit late in Sunday's 31-18 loss at New York.

Team officials weren't certain that he'd make the flight back to Charlotte with the team, and had no further word on his condition.

The Giants made Matt Moore look?pretty darn good last December when Big Blue closed Giants Stadium with a 41-9 loss to the Panthers. Moore threw three touchdown passes and had a quarterback rating of 139.8 in that game. (He?was helped out by 206 rushing yards?from Jonathan Stewart and five Giants' turnovers.)?He directed the Panthers to four wins in their final five games, as Carolina finished 8-8. Now in his fourth year in the NFL, he's the Panthers'?starting quarterback and he heads back to the Meadowlands on Sunday to face the Giants.

Not that Moore can get too comfortable, though. Jimmy Clausen was taken with the 48th pick in last spring's draft and the?Notre Dame?product will be ready to jump in should Moore falter. In a side note, Clausen ran the same system at Notre Dame that they run in Carolina. The offensive line is strong and running backs DeAngelo Williams and Stewart will get a lot of carries, and will certainly take some pressure off of Moore. Steve Smith will be one of Moore's go-to-guys in the passing game. Third round pick Brandon LaFell has emerged as the No. 2 receiver.

In any case, more will be expected from Matt Moore.
