Ouch. Looks like people around the league are really questioning this one. What the he|| business does PFT have calling him stuff like "a legend in his own mind" and crap like that. He's the 2nd leading WR of ALL TIME behind only the greatest of the great, Jerry Rice. Jesus. He may have a big mouth but to call him a legend in his own mind and sh!t like that is just flat out distorting the truth. The guy is a legend PERIOD.CARTER A CHANGED MAN?
Over the weekend we spoke to several NFL personnel guys who asked the same question we were thinking when we heard that Chris "A Legend In His Own Mind" Carter is going to sign with the Dolphins: "What in the hell are they doing down in Miami?" As one Pro Personnel guy said to us: "everything will be fuzzy and warm for awhile . . . I give Carter about three games - especially if the Dolphins are making a playoff run - before he starts whining and bitching about not getting the ball enough." An AFC scout told us "that forget all the other quotes that come out of that locker room . . . the Human Quote Machine (meaning Carter) will make sure that he floods the media with the same crap he used to say in Minnesota." Our take on the matter: Carter is one of the biggest phonies in the league . . . and we liked Len Dawson on HBO better, anyway.
But I'm not surprised with PFT. They get GREAT info on that rumor page and its usually always accurate. But they never can help themselves from sticking their erroneous opinions and misguided predispositions into their reporting. Its the reason they don't get respect like a legitimate news source, even though they break more stories and have more inside sources than any "legitimate" news source I see.
