ESPN Picks Between Newton & Luck

We're not talking about success, talking about black QBs going to NFL.

You complained yet have nothing to back it up so you backpedal and deflect.

Typical trash on the Huddle these days.

The problems aren't so much with black QBs as they are athletic QBs, many of whom happen to be black but a couple of white examples (Crouch, Jones) were mentioned above by CSX.

College coaches tend to exploit their athleticism as runners rather than concentrating on teaching them to be passers. That makes for wins at the college level - which is technically a college coach's only job - but it leaves them ill-prepared for the next level.

Jim Tressel was a rare exception. He made a concerted effort to teach athlete QBs like Troy Smith and Terrelle Pryor to be passers first. I'd love to see more coaches take that approach in the future, but I'm not holding out much hope there :(

you think The Golden Calf of Bristol would be the figure he is or would've been drafted where he was if he was black?

The only way that happens is if the NFL creates a farm system.

Careers are too short, primes are too short, it'll never happen. Win now or GTFO.

My problem is that people, certain people, act like it's based on race yet ignore that it's giving these athletes, who likely couldn't do anything else, an opportunity to make millions of dollars.

Pat White screwed himself. Would Armanti still be on a roster as a QB? Would Hines Ward have two SB rings as a QB? It's fuging annoying. Someone brought up Brad Smith :lol:

It's not often 5'10" Qbs who can't throw make it in the NFL. Maybe they are better suited to be a kick returner and wild cat guy. Better than being a stock boy at the local grocery store.

How do you expect anyone to answer that? You have the answer you want already in your head. People love him because he's a good person off the field and an undeniable winner.

Everything else you want to believe is your own self insecurities.

I actually don't think The Golden Calf of Bristol would have been drafted where he were if not for Josh McDaniels being a numbskull.

Had it not been for McDaniels being nuts about him, I think The Golden Calf of Bristol would have dropped at least to the second or third, maybe further.

No, no... that's not them.

These features are very large.

And prominent.

I don't see how you could miss them.

definitely had a lot to do with it. his incredible ability to pull victories out of his ass definitely had a lot to do with it as well as well as being from such a high-profile school AND being an all-american christian, good looking, white-boy.

i was concerned about cam for the same reasons i was concerned about The Golden Calf of Bristol... but obviously i was waaaay the f*ck off with that assessment.
