Dixie, Rivers, Rodgers, and Big Ben are also all much better qb's than McFlabb.
Right you are WA33. I'd also add Favre to that list.
Damn!!! I completely forgot Favre. The guy is a legend. Kolb will do a better job in Philly than McFlabb.
It look as if there may be less afflete quarterbacks starting this upcoming season. Garrard will probably be replaced by Tebow. Also there aren't any good black quarterbacks in this draft.
Edited by: whiteathlete33
I am pulling for Tebow considering all the pounding he has taken so I am hoping that isn't the case. Tim probably needs at least a year of preparation considering that he will be not only learning the pro offense and having to work on his mechanics. Two might not even be such a bad thing. If he was my Quarterback I probably would have him as the reserve QB while he learned. I know if he is drafted by Jax the pressure will be to immediately get him on the field in some way, but ideally it probably shouldn't be more than in the occasional wildcat.
Tebow will undoubtedly sit this year barring injuries to the QBs ahead of him. The only possible new starting black quarterbacks right now could be Seneca Wallace and Tavaris Jackson. But Delhomme shouldbeat out Wallace and hopefully Favre plays again and if not Rosenfels beats out the awful Jackson. Andmaybe Washington will draft Campbell's eventual replacement.Edited by: Don Wassall
McNabb is traded to the Blackskins for the 37th pick in the '10 draft. Kevin Kolb is now the starter for Philly and McNabb will replace Jason Campbell. Net result: one less black starting QB in the league.
This is encouraging as it shows that at least some incompetent black QB's such as Campbell will be replaced at some point. Of course they are allowed a much longer leash than an incompetent white QB, but at least they aren't usually given a decade or so, like some overrated sumos. Next one to fall, David Garrard maybe?
If Jax drafts Tebow or another quarterback early that will mean Garrard's days are numbered.
We're down now to just 4 black starting QBs -- McNabb, Garrard, Young and Freeman. Young could easily implode again and will always have troubles throwing accurately and reading defenses. Freeman didn't impress as a rookie but it's too early to tell yet if he'll be any good or not. McNabb is getting up in years and may be due for another injury, especially with Washington's terrible sumo line protecting him. Campbell likely won't get another chance to start for another team, and as badly as Delhomme played last year no one expects Seneca Wallace to beat him out in Cleveland.
At the time McNabb and Culpepper were drafted the caste media was gloating about an inevitable takeover at QB by a "new, more athletic breed" of football player. That prediction has turned out to be as accurate as theirgloating from 15 years ago that Tiger Woods heralded an inevitableblack takeover of golf. The failure of The Great Black Quarterback Experiment has been avery strongblow to the Caste System and its accompanying mythology.
Even Vanity Fair had an article about the black takeover of the QB position.
So, based Don's numbers above, 88% of the starting QBs are expected to be whites next season. This is a solid number, and one I cannot complain about. Here's hoping that this figure stays around the 90% mark for years to come.
It should probably be closer to 100 % every year if not for the leagues affirmative action policies. The reality is that several black qb's will start every year no matter how bad they are.
What about fat a"" Jamamarcus Russell surely the annointed one will be given every oppurtunity to stay the starter in Oakland.
Bruce Gradkowski replaced DuhMarcus midseason last year so Russell can't stay the starter, only try to regain that position, and considering he reported fatter than ever for the team's offseason voluntary workouts, he remains as lazy as ever. He's a classic example of an afflete who is content to live off his massive signing bonus and who will probably end up broke down the road. Oakland has been trying to trade for a QB; it's possible Jason Campbell could end up there, but Duhmarcus could be finished as a starter in the NFL.
It was only a matter of time for Campbell to ride the pine...whether it had been drafting Sam Bradford or this....I have compared Campbell to another bust, Tony Banks...
The white's have a strong hold on the QBposition for at least a few years...where not only drop-back passers...but athletic dual-threat QB's like Tebow, LeFevour & Locker will be the coming trend!
There have been several extremely athletic white qb's from the past that were switched over to other positions. Scott Frost would have been capable or rushing for 1,000 yards form the quarterback position as well as Eric Crouch.
Tony Banks is who Campbell reminds me of too. He may get another chance to start somewhere but he has career backup written all over him at this point. Rodney Peete and Charlie Batch also come to mind, guys who played a long time as backups after they proved they weren't starter material.
I'm thinking McNabb will suffer a career-ending injury during his first year with the Blackskins.
Jason Campbell will be out of the league in no more than 2 seasons.
Good luck to Kevin Kolb!
Still don't like Andy Reid and the Eagles, though.
The other night the NFL Network showed the Eagles vs. Patriots Super Bowl game and I tuned in the last part of it to watch again how the McNabb-led Eagles threw away any chance to win due to their atrocious clock management. Philadelphia either never practiced the hurry-up offense, or McNabb was incapable ofrunning it on the sport's biggest stage,due to. . . what? -- stress, being exhausted (McNabb was allegedly hurling on the sideline), lack of the mental wherewithal to do so. . . what?
The Eagles were down by 10 points and had the ball with about 6 minutes left in the game, but wasted most of that time by huddling for each play and then slowly walking to the line and having a long snap count. They had one short gain after another before McNabb hit Greg Lewis on a bomb for a TD, but by that time there was less than 2 minutes left. The Philly defense held, but the resulting New England punt pinned them back around their own 5 with less than a minute to go. McNabb threw a 1 yard pass to Brian Westbrook, which ate up most of the time left, then threw an interception (his third of the game and second of the 4th quarter).
The telecast featured frequent shots of Fat Bastard and McNabb as the Eagles threw away any legitimate chance they had to make a comeback. The announcers -- Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Cris Collinsworth -- all were clearly stunned by what was taking place.
The Eagles gave the game away thanks to the worst clock management imaginable. When I was 10 years old and playing football we knew when and how to implement the hurry-up offense in our playground games. If this Super Bowlwasn't scripted then the only plausible explanation is that McNabb lacked what Al Campanis called the "necessities"to do what the situation demanded. Given the occasional moronic quotesMcNabb has made, such as not knowing that NFL games can end in ties, and his self-pitying whines about how tough black QBs have it, I can understand why many ofthe Philly DWFshad beenready for a new QB for a number of years. McNabb has had a very good career but lacks consistency and mental toughness, andapparently even basic comprehension skills at critical times. Edited by: Don Wassall
So doesn't this turn of events more or less prove Rush Limbaugh correct?
IMO, Rush was right on the money with his comments & only demonized by the pro-caste MSM. "McFlabb" has been a solid QB at times, but due to the reasons Don listed (above)...DonYOvan isn't close to the top tier of NFL QBs.
It is surprising that the Eagles would trade McNabb to a division rival whom they play twice a year. The Eagles may well believe McNabb is over the hill.
Either that or the market for McNabb was very weak. Seemed like only the Rams and Raiders were genuinely interested, and the Rams appear set to grab Bradford with the first pick of the draft.
Doesn't this open up the job for Vick? One minor injury, one bad game, for Kolb and it's the return of the Mikey Vick era!
Very true. Also, is it certain Kolb will be handed the starting spot? He may have to compete with Vick during preseason. I'm sure Lurie didn't bring Mikey in to hold a clipboard. Let's not forget the fraternity of black affletes. The team might mysteriously perform much better with Vick behind center. They ALL love Vick.
Snyder on the other hand replaced his mediocre black QB with a slightyly better version. So, the Redskins now have two affletes at the top of their pecking order. Is Grossman still on the team?What about Brennan? He'll probably waste away on the bench for years and years much like Billy Volek.

Fat Bastard has said there will be no competition, that Kolb is the man. I think even the vast majority of DWFs realize Kolb is potentially far better than Vick. Thanks to the widespread appeal of fantasy football they know that Kolb stepped in and started two games last year when McNabb was hurt and was better than McNabb even though he had almost no previous game experience (a half of one game the previous season).
There's no interest from any team in the league in trading for Vick and having him start. As far as Philly's affletes, the receivers want to get their catches and yards, so I think they'll play hard for Kolb. The team's sumo line. . . that's a different story.
