Default Re: McNabb says black QBs under more pressure

LOL. It was interesting to see some coaches talking about coaching black QB's in college in the south in the 70's in response. THOSE QB's faced some scrutiny. McNabb plays in Philly. If Rocky played QB they'd boo him, too. His race is obviously an issue to him, and I'm sure his motivation is a personal issue for him as well.

are you saying mcnabb wants to win because he is black?

im sure the competitive nature of pro atheletes, and the thrill of being a winner alone supercedes race issues.

donnovan wants to win because he is a competitive football player, not because he is black.

but i will agree with you. mcnabb has always hot dogged it throughout his career when he is not faced with media adversity

how great it is to be able to "turn it on" like that.

Unfortunately they still do.

There were LSU "fans" who didn't like Jamarcus Russell and Rohan Davey. Mostly people who couldn't even spell LSU.

No, I'm saying that McNabb plays hard when he wants to, and phones it in when he doesn't, just like any other athlete is capable of.

Now McNabb can call up Rex Grossman and see what he has to say about this 'issue'.

Keep playing that card Donovan.

Hmmm....

This makes me ask another question in relations to Rush's comments...

1. Was Donovan overrated?

2. Is Donovan now starting to feel pressure because the press is asking him questions they never asked before? and if so... then...

3. Is the press paying Donovan back with all this criticism?

See... I just find it funny that Rush Limbaugh makes a comment about the press wanting McNabb to succeed because he was black... and now, McNabb saying he is feeling all this pressure because as a black QB, he is under a microscope.

Isn't that just a little odd?

I don't think he's overrated. When he's on his game he can be dominating. But this race garbage gets old. I don't want to go off on a tangent, but the Jena, LA situation is a perfect example of the dichotomy. If this was 6 white kids beating a black kid almost to death, the outcry (complete with Reverend Al) would be there no matter what, and God forbid if the situation was EXACTLY reversed, and the white kids were NOT being charged with murder, the black community would be even more enraged then they are now. Nobody is applying a higher standard to Donovan because of his color, and he's delusional if he actually believes differently. Newsflash: In a Country of 300 million people, there are exactly 32 starting NFL QB's. You bet you're ass they are going to be scrutinized!
