Former Houston Texans quarterback David Carr was used to having Albert Haynesworth chase him around when Haynesworth was a member of the Titans.
However, last night Carr had to deal with him again as the Patriots defensive lineman tormented Carr throughout most of last night’s game, leaving the Giants quarterback asking him nicely to “stop chasing him”.
“I told him, ‘Stop chasing me. You chased me enough when I was in Houston and you were in Tennessee,’ ” Carr told reporters after the game. “But I just saw their starters coming out and thought, ‘Sure, bring ’em out again.’ ”
It was a tough night for Carr. New England as a team last night recorded 3 sacks, two of which were on Carr – who was seen after the game icing his ribs.
That was the longest outing Carr’s seen in a while, and who said the pain he was feeling after the game oddly enough seemed to be a pleasant experience.
“I can’t remember the last time I played that long,” Carr said. “I mean, it’s been multiple years. So just to kind of dust some of the rust off, it was good to get out there, get banged around a little bit, get your ribs beat up.
“It felt like I was a football player a little bit.”
