Carter sees 'thing called quit' in Moss, who fires back

Many Lambeau moons ago, Randy Moss and Cris Carter teamed to form one of the most dynamic receiving combinations in NFL history.

You'd think this would form some kind of brotherhood. But, judging from Tuesday's events, apparently not.

It started in the morning, when Carter offered his (quite valid) concerns of Moss, who announced his intention to return to the NFL on Monday after a one-year layoff.

"The one thing you have to address with Randy Moss is not a conditioning thing," Carter said on "Mike & Mike in the Morning" (via "It's not an age thing. It needs to be addressed. I believe it's the elephant in the room. It's that thing called quit.

"And Randy, not like any other superstar I've met, he has more quit in him than any of those other players," Carter went on. "So I need to address that. That's what (Patriots coach Bill) Belichick did when he brought him over from Oakland. He told him he wasn't going to have it."

Moss said Monday night on his postively Sheen-esque UStream page that Carter belonged in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But after hearing of his former teammate's criticism, Moss took to his Twitter page to hit Carter where it hurt.
