Instead of Cris Carter critcizing Josh Gordon, why doesn’t he become a mentor for him?

It is very easy to point the finger and talk about a subject, especially when it comes to Josh Gordon ‘s situation in Cleveland. After multiple run ins with the law and the NFL with drug charges, everyone wants to offer criticism but no one wants to mentor.

The Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter said it’s clear the expected-to-be-suspended Browns wideout hasn’t yet made getting clean a priority.

“It’s fairly obvious that [using substances] is more important to him than anything else,” Carter told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “It’s always been very, very important to him. It’s well-documented that it’s been primary since early college. Maybe it even goes back to early high school. . . .

“If the building is on fire and the person decides to stay in there, I don’t run in there and get him out. If you see them breaking the glass, if you see them struggling and trying to get out — that’s my analogy of how I help out the guys in the league and the kids that really, really need help.”

Well while it sounds like Carter would like to help him, what had he done besides critique him? Nothing.

Listen, if you want to be remembered in this league for doing great things, why not call the kid up and take him under your wing. Make him come to your football camp, and give him a job to mentor the other kids in South Beach?

I don’t get it!!! People will say something all the time about a person’s mistakes but do nothing to help him change them. Yes, the kid is slow, but he obviously needs a little guidance.
