Default David Carr may go for 49ers this week

Smith or Carr?
4:03
PM ETAlex Smith | 49ers Top EmailShare San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith was injured in the third quarter of the team's loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, and was being examined in a hospital in London on Monday, according to Chris Lehourites of the Denver Post. The Niners will take on the Denver Broncos in Great Britain on Sunday, and the injury to Smith's non-throwing shoulder may prevent him from joining the festivities on the field.

"It's all right. Could be better," Smith said. "I'm still waiting to hear from the doctors."

Mike Singletary, whose own future as head coach of the team is in question this week, also didn't know if his team's franchise QB would be able to play. "I'm not a doctor, so we'll have to wait and see," Singletary said.

The Niners would likely go with backup David Carr if Smith was unable to play, although Troy Smith and Nate Davis are traveling with the squad. Sorry, British NFL fans.

Why would the Niners even attempt at this point.

Shove Frank Gore down our throat and you can't go wrong

Yea, this is also sort of a must-win game for their coach.

Not an easy game coming up. They never are.

I feel sorry for London. Getting a David Carr-led Niners vs. a McDaniels-coached Broncos, with Singletary on the sidelines giving us the "what is happening here?" look....man is that going to be an ugly game.

We lose -7 to -3 (a new formula for negative scoring is implemented to explain our collective suckitude).

If David Carr somehow rehabilitates himself against the Broncos defense.....sorry, I can't even begin to complete that thought.

I'm pretty sure he'll look great. This has happened the last five years. Some scrub gets a start and we make him look amazing.

Don't do it. Look, folks... I'm an expert on bad quarterbacks. The only reason Singletary lets a guy like Alex Smith take the snaps is because the guy behind him is even worse.

Well, I can pretty much gurantee we'll make David Carr look like Peyton Manning if he does start. We managed to make Jamarcus Russell look like Elway with a come from behind victory... we did hold Jason Campbell under a 158.3 perfect rating though...SCRUB! It will be ugly but we'll never have to worry about the NFL sending us to England again!

A friend of mine picked up the Denver D for his fantasy team yesterday. He got -2 points. First time we'd ever seen negative for a defense.

Dawkins was suspected to be out 2-3 weeks.

Anyone hear anything of his status?

Dawkins might help in run support vs Gore but the guy we should hope comes back is Goodman is the guy who will help down field as just him suiting up should help keep Nate Jones off the field.

I was being sarcastic but he will play well, watch out for Davis the TE.

I mean, without a pass rush any QB would tear us apart.
