Shortly after it was revealed that Riley Cooper made a racially insensitive remark, Marcus Vick, the troubled brother of Cooper’s Eagles teammate Michael Vick, tweeted out that he would pay a bounty for some NFL defensive player to take out Cooper during a game. He deleted is tweets and claimed he was hacked. While it drew attention, nobody took it overly serious. However, one Hall of Fame wide receiver says that a bounty won’t be needed to motivate defensive backfields. Cris Carter will be inducted into the Hall of Fame, and he isn’t afraid of making a controversial statement. Via NY Post: “Ninety-five percent of defensive backs in the NFL are African-American,” Carter told The Post. “What do you think?” Carter says that it will never be the same for the Eagles wide receiver who is now taking a leave of absence to seek counseling: “It’s a difficult situation, and it’s not gonna go away,” Carter said. “This is what I do know – - everyone on that team is not gonna forgive him.” “In life, no matter what business you’re in, there are certain things you never do,” Carter said. “Sports is one of the few places where there’s [...]

  • Duuuuhhh!!! Ya think so Chris?
  • How soon Chris Carter has forgotten his past for he once was lost but now is found. I remember a humble Chris Carter sharing his testimony of how he was a stone cold alcoholic while with the Eagles and how his wake up call came when he was traded to the Vikes and how he met the Lord soon after. The comment that offended me is that Chris acts as though he is speaking for every player on the Eagles by saying "everyone on that team is not gonna forgive him." He who is forgiven of much is thankful of much. I believe Michael Vick and Jason Avant when they say as Christians they forgive him. Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. The real issue is the heart of those who cannot forgive. We all have a cross to bear and I hope it leads Riley to salvation for in Christ there is neither Jew nor Greek nor Gentile. There is only one race it is the human race.
