Doug Baldwin rips Cris Carter after winning Super Bowl
Doug Baldwin couldn’t wait to rip ESPN analyst Cris Carter after the Seattle Seahawks won the Super Bowl on Sunday. And the undrafted wide receiver from Stanford just unloaded on the Hall of Famer.
“I’m not going to say any names, but he knows who he is. I respect what you did on the field. But stick to football,” Baldwin said of Carter via NJ.com. “Stick to playing football because your analytical skills ain’t up to par yet. You need to slow down, you need to go back. Because you’re saying some stuff that doesn’t really make sense.”
Baldwin was apparently chapped by Carter and Keyshawn Johnson describing the Seahawks’ wide receivers as “appetizers” prior to the NFC Championship Game between the Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers.
“That dude that said that we were appetizers, he told me to Google him. But I didn’t see any Super Bowl appearances and I also saw two losses in the conference championship. I have a Super Bowl ring and I will gladly show that to him. And if he doesn’t have time to come see it, tell him he can Google it.”

Those are some strong words from Baldwin. But I don’t know why he took it so personally. Carter is an idiotic commentator whose opinion, words, and analysis should not be taken seriously. Remember what happened with him and Calvin Johnson? That was all because Carter was so unprepared as an analyst that he forgot to mention Calvin, and then was too proud to add Johnson to his list when he realized he screwed up. I’m glad Baldwin took it to him.
As for the “appetizers,” well they played a great game. Baldwin led his team with 5 catches for 66 yards and a touchdown, while Jermaine Kearse, another undrafted receiver, had 4 catches for 64 yards and a TD. Baldwin caught all of the passes thrown his way. Not bad for a platter of sliders and some artichoke dip, huh Cris?
