Quincy Carter to Reunite With Bill Parcells, At Least for An Afternoon
'Bout three months ago, seemed like former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Quincy Carter was danged near the luckiest dude in pro-ish football, getting the call up to the Kansas City Brigade of the Arena Football League. This came about a year after he'd already screwed up his gig throwing the ball for the Bossier-Shreveport BattleWings in the Arena2 league; Quincy had a thing about not showing up for meetings. But, seriously? Quincy Carter's ending this week by trying out for the Miami Dolphins? Where Bill Parcells, who hated Carter when he coached the Cowboys, is the vice president of football operations? How'd that happen? In the words of Deadspin: "Where oh where have you gone Jay Fiedler?" Now who's stoned? --Robert Wilonsky
