It was running across the bottom on ESPNnews. Said "Cowboys to cut Q. Carter"

Sorry, I know that's bad ettiquette to not post a link.

texasguy346 08-04-2004 11:39 AM

Yeah I saw the same thing on ESPNews. It is very shocking considering that a few days ago Carter was claiming the starting spot was his. That would mean that Testaverde would be the starter.

HOLY CRUD! Are you serious!!!???!!! Shoot, this better not be real...

Austin_Texan_Fan 08-04-2004 11:45 AM

Gotta say I really didn't see that coming. Poor poor Vinny.

WWJD 08-04-2004 11:49 AM

The only thing I could find was he was not at the morning practice.

Dallas Morning News.

"witnesses say they saw him being driven out of the Residence Inn parking just before the start of practice. The club is not commenting on Carter's absence, but obviously will address the matter at head coach Bill Parcells' daily press conference, carried live on DallasCowboys.com at 11:30 (PDT)."


texasguy346 08-04-2004 12:05 PM

It looks to be true. Len Pasquerelli is reporting it now on ESPN News. They're even doing a full workup on it. That means that their 3 QBs will be Henson, Romo, and Testaverde. Will Carter find a job somewhere? A few years ago when Tony Banks was headed into camp as the Cowboys starter they cut him in much the same manner, and Banks ended up with a pretty good job. Hopefully Carter will get a good oppurtunity too.

Pasquarelli is reporting it: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?id=1851998

No, No, No, No, No. My God NOOO!!!. Yesterday I bought a freakin Carter jersey. Im shocked, I just cant bear to believe it. I'm disgusted if Parcells actually did cut him. This reminds me of when Dallas cut Banks. This has to be a screw up. We'll see at the press conference, i'll be listening live on dallascowboys.com

Well well well. Looks like Jerah Jonz ain't doesn't have that great an eye for talent. Did he not once call Quizzle a "Once in a lifetime talent", or something like that. Anytime Dallas falls on hard times it just brings a big smile to my face. Unfortunately I think they got a pretty good player from us in Henson. Even though he isn't ready. Oh well.. This is good for now.

texasguy346 08-04-2004 12:15 PM

Doesn't look to be a screw up. Not unless you have another Q. Carter on the roster. Sorry about the Carter Jersey, but at least you have a nice souvenir. Seems like if they wanted to let Carter go they could have had better timing with it. Imagine what his teamates must feel like after having their starting QB cut.

Tulip 08-04-2004 12:15 PM

I don't get it. I have no idea what they are doing.

Austin_Texan_Fan 08-04-2004 12:17 PM

Is that O-line going to be able to protect vinny?????

texasguy346 08-04-2004 12:18 PM

I think they're trying to build for the future. Essientially they're saying that they like Tony Romo better than Q. Carter. Testaverde will start this year, and Henson might start towards the end of the season if they're not in contention and perhaps can be the starter next season.

99FirehawkTA 08-04-2004 12:20 PM

I dont see the logic in cuting him unless hes having a horrendous camp thus far. I mean, why cut the guy that helped you make it to the playoffs when no one thought you would.

ESPN.com news services
Quarterback Quincy Carter will be released from the Dallas Cowboys, ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli has learned, and an official announcement is expected this afternoon. Carter, a four-year veteran out of Georgia, did not practice with the team Wednesday. There was no immediate word as to why the Cowboys planned to cut Carter.

Carter, 26, started all 16 games last season, when the Cowboys went 10-6 and got back in the playoffs in head coach Bill Parcells' first year with the club.

Just last week Carter said he expected to be Dallas' starter when the 2004 season opened.

"I wouldn't say it's an open competition," Carter said last Saturday, after the team's first workout. "I'm clearly the starter right now. ... The team knows who their starter is. I'm going to stand firm on that, and I'm going to be their leader."

Indeed, Carter took snaps with the first team when camp opened, and Parcells at first acknowledged that his '03 starter had the advantage.

"He has a leg up on pretty much everybody because he was the guy that played the best and started last year," Parcells told The Associated Press last week. "Obviously I have that in mind. He is in a good position to be improved. And that is what I'm looking for."

However, Parcells has also maintained that no one -- not the incumbent, not a former star like Vinny Testaverde -- is a given in the position. Former New York Yankees player Drew Henson is also competing for the starting spot.

After last season, Parcells gave Carter a list of some things he wanted the quarterback to do during the offseason. Among them was to add muscle, work on certain mechanics and footwork and get better throwing on the run to cut down his high interception total.

Carter added four pounds of muscle, getting to 219 pounds. He's a long way from the pudgy-looking 223-pounder he was when the coach arrived.

Despite the obvious changes, however, it would take time to see if Carter improved on the field the way Parcells expected.

In his first season as the full-time starter -- after splitting the first two seasons with Chad Hutchinson -- Carter threw for 3,302 yards, but had 21 interceptions and 17 touchdowns. He was intercepted at least twice six times.

Thirteen of those interceptions came when he got outside the pocket after a play had broken down.

Carter was a chosen by Dallas in the second round of the 2001 draft.
Heres the article from ESPN.

I'll leave the coaching decisions to Bill.

He's much better at it than I am.
