HOW MUCH LONGER WILL KC TOLERATE CARTER?
November 26, 1995
Dale Carter is a Pro Bowl-type defensive back with numerous football skills. But how much longer can the Kansas City Chiefs indulge his hot-head behavior that produces too many costly penalties at inopportune times? Carter blew his stack again Thursday against the Dallas Cowboys, lost yardage for the Chiefs and got ejected for kicking away at real or imagined foes like some spoiled brat in a tantrum. That led to a father-son sideline lecture from coach Marty Schottenheimer, who kept his cool a lot better than most folks could under similar circumstances. Trouble is, you wonder if any of it sank in for the temperamental D-back … and how long before he does it again, as against Oakland in a crucial upcoming AFC battle.
