Argos’ coach Marc Trestman had this to say about receiver Duron Carter on Monday: “he hasn’t made it in any situation he has been in.”
His comments lead to this question: why would the Argos sign him?
The answer – Duron Carter is a good football player. His talents can help a team win.
As I’ve stated before in this time slot, success is measured in wins and losses.
Those in pro sports are driven by competition and challenge. Trestman, whose coaching success in the CFL speaks for itself, appears to up for the challenge of dealing with Carter.
Carter is a five-year CFL veteran who, in the eyes of some, has some growing up to do.
If Trestman is successful in getting Carter to conform to team policy, not disrupt a locker room and perform at a high level, then he has done something with Carter’s career no other coach has.
This scenario is what some coaches in pro sports live for.
