Carter Gets Yanked

In a suprise move Monday afternoon, head coach Dave Campo announced that Quincy Carter is out and Chad Hutchinson is in as the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys.

The move comes just one day after Carter threw four interceptions in a 9-6 overtime loss to Arizona.

Coach Dave Campo called a news conference to discuss the move. He did not indicate a switch was in the works during his typical day-after news conference earlier Monday.

Hutchinson has not played a down in the NFL and last took a snap in a game that counted as a sophomore at Stanford. He returned to football last summer after spending four years playing professional baseball.

Carter was rushed into the job, too, going from second-round pick to opening-day starter last season. He went 3-5 as a rookie and is 3-4 this season.

Carter pulled out the last two wins with stellar play in the final minutes, but the games might not have been so close if he'd been better in the first three quarters. He wasn't able to pull overcome his early mistakes Sunday against the Cardinals.
