CFL | Q. Carter calls release a joke

Thu, 25 May 2006 20:39:54 -0700

The Edmonton Journal reports former Montreal Allouettes QB Quincy Carter called his release Wednesday, May 24, a joke. "This is a joke, an insult," Carter said Wednesday afternoon, hours after the Canadian Football League team announced his release. "I was throwing all over the field, from either hashmark, with ease. And we were practicing in (an indoor facility), so I couldn't throw as deep as I wanted." Allouettes head coach Don Matthews said Carter's release was performance related. "Someone had to go. He was the obvious choice. He had the lowest grades." Carter also claimed he had several conversations behind closed doors with general manager Jim Popp, during which he was told he'd back up starting QB Anthony Calvillo, but Popp denied Carter's statement.

I'm excited about getting a fresh start with Montreal and I want to put the things in the past behind me," Carter said. "When you walk around and people think you're on cocaine or bipolar, it hurts. None of that was the case." Carter said he will spend the rest of the CFL's offseason in Canada preparing for the upcoming season, which begins at the end of May.

Jets | Backup QB Battle: Carter vs. Bollinger

Sat, 04 Sep 2004 14:26:15 -0700

The New York Daily News reports the New York Jets now have a controversy at backup quarterback, as QBs Quincy Carter and Brooks Bollinger are battling for the position. Carter was presumed the No. 2 quarterback, but Bollinger hit 11-of-20 passes for 168 yards to lead the team to victory Friday, Sept. 3, against the Philadelphia Eagles. Carter, in turn, hit 9-of-21 attempts, threw an interception (wasn't viewed as his fault) and was sacked twice. While Carter is more experienced, Bollinger knows the system better and could have solidified the No. 2 position earlier in camp if he had not suffered a knee injury.
