While "arguing" with KT the other day he brought up the "fact" that we had never given a black QB a shot (Rodney Pete wasn't black I guess) Of course, his favorite NFL team is racist.......but they're are still his favorite NFL team lol. Anyway,I reminded him that there are more black coaches than QBs, and if I was a black nationalist, I would be more concerned with that, since Coaches have more power over the team than QBs. Then I asked him why the Panthers had never taken a shot at a white RB? No answer of course.

Anyway it made me think of all of the white RBs and WRs in the league this year, like Peyton Hillis, John Kuhn (oh the irony) Danny Woohead, everybody that plays for the Colts etc. Is this just a new fad, or is it a trend thats here to stay? If so, white is the new black!

There's a point somewhere in the post I swear.

F it. I'll troll.

Woodhead's suddenly the #1 selling Pats jersey and gets tons of national press despite the fact he's not doing anything Kevin Faulk didn't do.

I'm just curious. #1 selling Pats jersey based on what? 1 week of sales? I find it hard to believe it sells more than Brady.

People have had 9 years to buy Brady's jersey.

Is it just me, or do RBs, CBs,and WRs jerseys just look better than QBs? I would probably rather wear a Woodhead jersey over a Brady jersey for some reason..

I think a basic t-shirt is awesome if it said Woodhead on the back.

Black quarterbacks, Hispanic quarterbacks, White runningbacks/receivers/cornerbacks, Asian anything...

Can't say I care about anything other than how well they play their position.

Heck, there was a time when more than half the kickers were from Bulgaria or somewhere.

Paint 'em all up like the aliens in Avatar and then no one will know who's what.

There should be a Rooney Rule for Whites in RB, WR, CB, KR/PR positions.

Also, there should be a Rooney Rule for Non-Whites in Kicker/Punter and to some extent in QB positions.

If the Panthers are so adamantly opposed to starting a black quarterback, why have they even signed them in the past. I'm thinking of Rodney Peete, Lester Ricard and Dameyune Craig. I might be missing one or two as well.

Yeah, Woodhead's jersey probably doesn't sell b/c of "other" reasons.

The NFL has 0% Asian players, do you see them bitching? no.
