Brandon Carr motivated by 'humbling experience'
by Larry Hartstein |

Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr seemed to lose confidence after Detroit's Calvin Johnson lit him up for 14 catches, 329 yards and a touchdown Week 8, reports the Dallas Morning News. He finished with three intereceptions and 12 pass breakups, calling it a season he "wouldn't boast about."

"I'm my toughest critic and there are some things I wish I could've done differently," Carr told the paper. "I wish I would've trusted myself a little more on certain things. But it was an alright season for me. It wasn't my best season. It was a season that I wouldn't boast about. But it was definitely a humbling experience.

"It helped to motivate me in the off-season. It's more fuel to the fire."

Carr, 27, changed his offseason workout routine and "incorporated some different people" into the regimen.

"This year I feel stronger than the last six years, stronger than when I came out of college," Carr told the paper. "I'm learning my body and getting the functional strength so I can go out there and translate the weight room and everything I'm learning, as far as getting my body right, and putting it onto the field and putting it on film.

"This year, it's Year 7 for me and I feel like this is like the first day I stepped into the door. I'm feeling fresh, I got a bounce in my step, all the injuries have kind of died down and I'm just ready to play ball."

by Michael Hurcomb |

Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr arguably made the play of the game for the Dallas defense during a 31-24 win Week 13 vs. Oakland. With Dallas ahead 28-21 and Oakland driving for the game-tying score midway through the fourth quarter, Carr picked off a Matt McGloin pass in the end zone.

The Cowboys then drove 79 yards on 14 plays, chewing up 6 minutes and 43 seconds before settling for a 19-yard field goal with 1:56 to play to give Dallas a 10-point lead. Carr finished with three solo tackles.

"He just threw it up and they’d got enough big balls on us throughout the game," Carr said, per ESPN. "I figured it was time to go ahead and make a play and shift the momentum."

Calvin Johnson ready for 'challenge' of facing Brandon Carr
by Michael Hurcomb |

Sunday's game between the Cowboys and Lions will feature a matchup between one of the league's best receivers -- Calvin Johnson -- and one of the league's top cornerbacks -- Brandon Carr.

The only time these two have squared off was in 2011 game when Carr was with Kansas City. Johnson was held to three catches for 29 yards. However, two of those catches went for touchdowns in a 48-3 win.

"He's a good corner," Johnson said of Carr, per "He's a physical guy. He's got to return that same mind-set going into the game. It's going to be a long game and challenge. Guys get ready to play when they come to Detroit. We have to be on our game."
