Max Carson is the captain of the New York Nightmare in Blitz: The League II. Carson takes over for Quentin Sands, presumably during the 2006 season when Sands is out with injury. Carson is a feared linebacker himself, earning the nickname "Supermax" after the highest level security prison, from which there is no escape. Carson also lives a clean lifestyle, avoiding the vices that have taken many of the other players in The League. Max is a clear reference to Harry Carson, Lawrence Taylor's former teammate on the New York Giants in real life.
