If you watched the Texans v. Raiders Monday Night Football from Mexico City, you heard the family lineage of Oakland quarterback Derek Carr. Older brother David Carr was drafted by the Houston Texans in 2002 and had a nice decade-long NFL career but did not reach the lofty expectations expected of a number one draft pick.
Today, David Carr does work with the NFL Network and coaches high school ball in Bakersfield along with his middle brother and father.
At the end of the game I received a strange text from someone who (a) does not watch the NFL and (b) does not watch ESPN.
It said ‘David Carr died?’, along with a Bing screenshot.
At this point I checked sources from that old globalist standby Google along with Wikipedia, who said the retired QB is still alive.
But I remained curious on where Bing dialed up the February 12, 2015 death date.
It turns out a public figure named David Carr did die that day. He was age 58 and said to be an acclaimed columnist for the New York Times.
So there you have it, quarterback David Carr alive – reported by me, confirmed by ESPN and why I stay away from Bing.
