No one cares what Cris "The Clown" Carter says, thinks or does. He is not derserving of the HOF as a player or a person. I wish he would just go away so we do not have to listen to him brag about himself anymore!!!

What a great turn-around story. I hope he uses it to get others on board that we all have issues we need to move beyond, some bigger than others. And with significant help, Chris was able to be all that he could be on the football field. Feel sorry for "thetruthinc" writer---it appears he is the only perfect person and can judge others however he wishes apparently.

No matter what you think of Chris Carter, you cannot take away the guy had awesome talent. AND without him and others helping Moss, he would not be the receiver he is today.

@thetruthstinks -"No one cares what Cris "The Clown" Carter says, thinks or does. He is not derserving of the HOF as a player or a person. I wish he would just go away so we do not have to listen to him brag about himself anymore!!!" ...................... Read the story twice. I saw platitudes directed at others, no bragging. Even Jerry Rice said it was too long coming for his induction. I'm not sure, and I'm confident Rice knows more about the NFL than either you or me. As a matter of fact, I've heard from no one with an NFL background who says he doesn't belong in Canton. You offer a personal attack (calling him a clown) but nothing to back it up. Consecutive 122-catch seasons before Moss arrived. 130 tds, yards galore, generally considered the best hands in the game, all-decade team. Sorry, but the truth hurts.
