How does it feel to lead the NFL's top ranked offense?
"It feels good but we have 14 games left," Carter said. "We want to be No. 1 at the end of the season. We are doing some things good. But we
are also making mistakes. We got to keep pressing forward."
About that career-high passing yardage, was that your best game as a pro?
"I don't get into that," Carter said. "I threw an interception for a touchdown and didn't even throw a touchdown. There are things I didn't
do well in that game. One game can never make or break your career. I realize that when I threw four interceptions against Arizona last year,
I knew it wasn't going to break my career. Going out there and throwing three hundred against the Giants is not going to make my career. I got a
long way to go. This is just the beginning."
Sensing how things were going and certainly schooled in the art of cheese from Parcells, Carter then went for the knockout.
"None of this was coming up when we lost last week," Carter said. "We are not going to fall into this trap. I am going to be straight up and
say it. It's one story one week. It's another story another week. We got to stay on an even keel and consistent as a team. We are not going fall in the trap of everybody patting us on the back."
According to Carter, the Cowboys haven't done anything yet. At 1-1, they are no different than the team that was 1-1, 2-2 and even 3-3 last
season before the wheels fell off in a 5-11 finish.
"As a leader of this team, that concerns me," Carter said. "But I know we got veterans here who will keep everybody straight and going
forward. We are not perfect. We got a lot of work to do."
It's Just Like Last Year
