Bravo to ESPN this Sunday morning. In the midst of the worst PR week in the history of the NFL, the 4-Letter showed and allowed their bevy of former players and analysts the opportunity to speak from the heart about the issues of the week.
And some of them made incredibly strong and powerful statements.
None more so than former Minnesota Vikings receiver and current NFL analyst Cris Carter who spoke about his upbringing and why hitting a child is wrong.
Carter spoke eloquently about the Adrian Peterson issue, how times have changed and while most of us of a certain age were struck with a variety of things while children, the fact that it happened doesn't necessarily make it right.
He also spoke out about Ray Rice and the discipline issues that the NFL is failing to control.
