YES, he did like the Cowboys and YES, he always wanted to play for them, BUT he really liked playing with Flowers and thought the Secondary could be really good in KC. He said once he received the offer from KC (It was not even an offer it was just talks) - he knew what he had to do. It was strictly a business decision.
He and Flowers will always be close. The fact they didn't both retire here is a crime.
This is the perfect example of the whole being better than the individual parts.
They were yin and yang both on and off the field. Perfect match.
Pioli lowballed Carr because he felt he'd take less than market value.
