First off, I want to say that I have no problem with any person saying the Dallas Cowboys are overrated, which is what Carter said. But Carter’s reasoning is completely mind boggling and certainly a double standard.
“I think the Cowboys have a huge problem, and that is with character in the locker room,” Carter said.
This comes from the guy who was canned by the Eagles for drug and alcohol abuse.
Of course, Carter was able to resurrect his career. He’s a perfect example of a player beating adversity and turning a new leaf. He is a prime example of a player who was able to turn the corner. So, it’s completely bizarre that he decided to label the Cowboys as overrated just because they hired Adam “Pacman” Jones and Terrell Owens, who quite honestly hasn’t caused any disturbances in the Big D (media sensationalism of his accidental overdose does not count, sorry).
For some reason, Pacman can’t change? For some reason, only Cris Carter can overcome adversity.
I don’t know what was more dumb: Carter saying the Cowboys are overrated or Carter saying Zach Thomas will be the glue of the team. Yeah, he said that, too.
