Tyler Thigpen is one of the most exciting young QBs I've seen in a long time. This unheralded former third- stringer, out of tiny Coastal Carolina, is a marvelous athlete, and has single-handedly jump started what was one of the league's most anemic offenses. Since his insertion as a starter, the formerly woeful KC offense has featured a dynamic passing attack. Same players everywhere else, but this kid has made the difference. During yesterday's game vs. Buffalo, I heard very little praise for this kid, and the announcers actually questioned whether he had proved he could be the starter next season! Unbelievable. In the last five games as a starter, Thigpen has thrown 11 TDs with only 3 interceptions. He has also scrambled for 203 yards and 1 TD on the season, averaging 7.5 ypc. He even caught a long TD pass. Overall on the season, his numbers are more than respectable for any QB, and phenomenal for a first-year starter on one of the league's worst teams. He has 13 TDs vs. 7 interceptions, and has thrown for only 20 yards less on the season than fat turd Jamarcus Russell, who has started every game. I'd venture those same announcers don't question whether Russell will be "the" QB next season. This kid would be receiving more acclaim than Michael Vick if he were black. The jock-sniffers would be demanding more running from him, and also more gadget plays to show off his receiving skills. Instead, there is a real question about whether he will even be the starting QB next season. Here is a perfect example of how the Caste whores in the media (even the fantasy media) view this flashy young player. From Rotoworld: Tyler Thigpen completed 17-of-31 passes for 240 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions against the Bills in Week 12. He added 29 yards on three scrambles. The fantasy numbers are great, but Thigpen looked nothing like a future franchise quarterback. His accuracy was shoddy, he was burned twice by rookie corner Leodis McKelvin, and he lost a fumble untouched on a scramble. Quinn Gray replaced him in garbage time because the game was out of hand. Thigpen remains a quality weekly option in the spread offense, at least for the rest of this season. Is that incredible or what? Can you picture this fantasy web site, or ESPN, or any mainstream media outlet in the world, describing such a performance by a young black QB in the same words?
