Default Re: McNabb says black QBs under more pressure

i thought i was the only one that thought mcnabb was overrated. what gets me is that africian-americans can use the race card but the causians cant say anything about an africian -american ..(ex.. rush limbaugh). if i am not mistaking isnt the qb position the most critized position in football anyway.. if you cant stand the heat mcscabb get out of the kitchen

I think McChokey needs to have a talk with Ben Roethlisberger, Bubby Brister and Terry Bradshaw...or Rex Grossman and Trent Green, for that matter...and then do that interview again. He might have a revelation.

McChokey, you get criticized more because you aren't winning and because you play in the dirty asscrack of PA known as Philadelphia. It ain't because you're black. Win a SB, and I guarantee you everyone will love you. Or in the case of Philly fans, not douse you with beer and snowballs.

See, that's the thing. The guy never came off as a big mouth idiot to me. I thought he handled the T.O. situation with class and maturity. I always felt (and still do feel) that T.O. burned his own bridges when he was in Philly.

McNabb's comments came as a surprise to me. I would expect these type of comments from T.O., Pacman Jones, Marvin Lewis or Michael Vick, but not McNabb. I always liked the guy. I always put his professionalism and the way he went about his job up there with Favre. Apparently I was wrong in doing so. Oh well, I guess you learn something new everyday.

Actually, that is the ONLY good thing McNut has done since he's been in Filthadelphia.

Atta boy, Donovan - play that race card to try to cover up your own inadequacy as a QB. Here you go - made it fresh just for you . . .

You hit the nail on the head. McNabb has been a good quarterback when healthy and quickly turned a bottom feeder into a consistent contender. And he handled himself with dignity while being the target of the race card on multiple occassions (Hush Bimbo and TO). On one hand, that experience might be warping his perspective...on the other hand, if anyone in the NFL should know better it's McNabb.
