In wow-he-must-really-suck news, Quincy Carter got cut yesterday from the Montreal Alouettes less than a week into the team's training camp. And the former Cowboys QB isn't taking it lying down or toking up: "This is a joke...an insult," he said Wednesday, just after the Canadian Football League team handed him his rolling papers. "I was throwing all over the field, from either hashmark, with ease. And we were practising in [an indoor facility], so I couldn't throw as deep as I wanted." The Edmonton Journal also quotes head coach Don Matthews offering this reason for Q-Car's release: "Someone had to go. He was the obvious choice. He had the lowest grades." At some point, I assume, I will feel sorry for the guy; when, I have no idea. --Robert Wilonsky
