Doug Baldwin Has No Business Talking Smack to Cris Carter
Before Super Bowl XLVIII, Cris Carter called the Seattle Seahawks receivers ‘appetizers.’ His point was that he felt the Seahawks lacked a true No. 1 receiver. As you would imagine, that didn’t sit well the Seattle pass-catchers. Specifically, it didn’t sit well with Doug Baldwin.
What unfolded in SB 48 was a game that no one predicted. The Seahawks routed the Broncos and flat out dominated in all facets of the game. Seattle had its way on the ground and through the air. That included Baldwin and his five catches for 66 yards and a TD.
After the game, Baldwin was on Fox Sports1 and he decided to call out Carter:
“My man that said that we were appetizers, right, he told me to Google him. And I did that. I saw that he was a Hall of Famer, which like I said, I respect what he did on the football field. But I also saw two conference championship appearances, none of which he won. And I didn’t see any Super Bowl appearances. All that stuff came to me in Google, and I would love for him to come to me… I would love to show him the Super Bowl ring. If he doesn’t want to come and see it personally, tell him he can Google it.”
As you can see, shots have been fired by Baldwin.
Facts are facts, Baldwin has a ring and CC doesn’t. But we are talking about the ultimate team game here. The Seahawks dominated SB 48 as a team. Baldwin played a part in it, just like many others did. Does that automatically give him the right to talk trash to a hall-of-fame player like Carter? I don’t believe so.
CC was right in his assessment. The Seahawks don’t have a true No. 1 receiver. Baldwin’s Super Bowl performance doesn’t change that, they’re going to be the same type of group heading into 2014.
In my opinion, Baldwin would have been better served to take the high road. He could have just let his play speak for him, but now he’s gone on record with a call-out of one of the best WRs to ever play the game.
If CC had played on team like the Seahawks, you can bet that he’d also have a ring.
