Cris Carter Debuts on ESPN
Cris Carter made his debut on ESPN tonight, stepping right into Sean Salisbury's place on the "4 Downs" segment of SportsCenter. Carter is a very knowledgeable analyst and is a great addition to "the worldwide leader." Carter doesn't come off as arrogant, like Salisbury sometimes did. I also liked how John Clayton was willing to argue with him right off the bat, perhaps a sign that this incarnation of 4 Downs will be just as fiery as the last. Carter knew his stats, too, like when discussing Adam "Pacman" Jones, he busted out a stat that the average career of an NFL player is 3.2 years. Now they just need to get rid of Emmitt Smith.
