Default Re: McNabb says black QBs under more pressure

I don't like it when anyone tried to play race card. I liked McNabb they way he played in his SB debut (can I say that?). But now he said this I like him a little less. He was pretty much the only reason I liked the Eagles.

Not many HOFers there, right?

Some decent players -sure, but those that have left have totally failed to repeat their output elsewhere.

I think McNabb is an okay guy from what I can tell, but the enduring image I have of him from the SB was of him puking into his helmet and walking slowly to the line while the clock ticked to zero on Phily's chance of tying the game.
In fairness, the Eagles haven't exactly had Swann, Stallworth, Harris, and Bleier during McNabb's career. The best receiver they've had (talent-wise) is a locker-room cancer who caused problems on three different teams.

As far as puking in his helmet, one of the Pats fans here has pointed out in the past that it wasn't from being nervous. It was from getting JACKE|D UP by Jarvis Green.

I remember Maddox, and while he was given hell by the fair-weather "faithful," it had nothing to do with him being cut. It was purely a football and business decision by the Rooneys and Kevin Colbert to release him. No more, no less.

I think Rex Grossman would say that he is feeling more pressure than McNabb at the current moment.

Who do you think is feeling more heat Donovan?

Definitely Rexie...

However, McNabb is the one quarterback in the NFL who has been subjected to explicity racial scrutiny. That may have warped his perspective. Note that Vince Young disagreed with his premise and Byron Leftwich made fun of him--which indicates the younger black quarterbacks in the league are not being treated any differently. Which means at least in the NFL, the issue has become virtually nonexistent.

Tom Brady and Peyton Manning aren't subject to as much scrutiny as you are Donovan because they don't suck. Right now, you're an injury-prone QB on a bad leg who is sucking terribly right now. You're under more scrutiny because you suck. Race has nothing to do to with it.

If he thought Philly hated him now, he hasn't seen anything yet. What an idiotic statement.

Philly has drafted and compiled loads of talent on that team for Mcscrub, and he (and perhaps Reid) have done nothing but waste it with their choke jobs. I think 2004 (Super Bowl XXXIX) was their last and best chance to win, now I think that window of opportunity is closed. Which If I were an Eagles fan, I'd be very sore about because The Eagles were playing the Pats tough until Mcscrub had to get sick and choke all of the sudden. Just my 2 cents.

McNabb is brittle. That's a valid criticism. The timing of when the comments were publshed makes him look like a crybaby. That's fair too. He shouldn't have brought it up after the country rallied behind him when Hush Bimbo and TO made racist statements about him. Playing the race card when you should know better due to experience is bush league.

But McNabb does not suck. That's just nuts. The last two seasons he was healthy (2003-2004), he threw for a combined 7000 yards, completed over 60% of his passes, and had 47 touchdowns with just 19 interceptions.

He obviously had a chip on his shoulder today and came out and performed, albeit against a very suspect Detroit defense. It bothers me a lot, though, when these guys seem to be able to just turn it on and and off. I only respect competitors who make millions of dollars when they play to their potential all the time, regardless of what's going on in the press.

ive seen mcnabb have alot of games like the one he had today w/o having to draw on the press for external motivation. todays performance can be attributed to a good gameplan, a good qb, and a defense who wasnt up to the challenge.

as for the media firestorm over mcnabbs interview (who many think was given last week), i can see where he is coming from when c. palmers skin is practically sucked off his bone by the media for throwing 6td's in a loss.

if mcnabb threw 6 td's in a loss he would probably be blasted for not running enough.

i think the assertion that mcnabb just "turned it on" because of the media drama just proves his point that he faces a hell of alot more scrutiny than alot of top qb's.

on the other hand, the media darling palmer can screw up as often as he wants, not post wins, and he will always know as a golden boy, regardless.
