Absolutely amazing that Cris Carter is not in the Hall of Fame.
We’re talking the NFL’s fourth all-time leading receiver, fourth all-time touchdown receiver, eighth all-time touchdown scorer, eight-time Pro Bowler, and four-time All Pro. Oh, and he’s one of the best possession receivers ever to play the game.

What a crock.
