Doug Baldwin slams Hall of Famer Cris Carter

Doug Baldwin had a pretty good game on Sunday. The Seattle Seahawks #89 led his side's receiving corp with five receptions going for 66 yards and a touchdown evading five would be tacklers and diving in to the end zone. 

And Baldwin went in to his post game press conference still hyped up after the win. 

Baldwin had a message for ESPN analyst and hall of fame receiver Cris Carter, who had earlier described the Seahawks receivers as "appetizers" because they lacked a main course.

"OK, y'all listen to me loud and clear," he said. "Y'all listening? Y'all hear me? For all y'all who called us, the receiving corps, average, pedestrian, appetizers—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 playing football, because your analytical skills ain't up to par yet.

You need to slow down and go back and not do it half-assed and put some effort into it, because you're saying some stuff that didn't really make sense."

"That dude who said that we were appetizers, he told me to Google him, and I did Google him, but I didn't see any Super Bowl appearances, and I also saw two losses in conference championships.

I have a Super Bowl ring, and I would gladly show that to him. And if he doesn't have time to come see it, tell him he can Google it."

The 25 year old came out fighting and certainly didn't pull any punches in his press conference. But does a SuperBowl win that stemmed from incredible defensive play, give him the right to have a go at such a highly respected ex-pro. Have your say below.
