    I agree with you but I will say Russell Wilson is the best of the black QB's. But I think this'll be the first year he's with Seattle that he doesn't have an excellent team behind him. Let's see how he does in such a scenario.

    Landry Jones remains a free agent. The Steelers cut him. There is no way Jones is not good enough to at least be a backup somewhere.

    The Steelers kept an inferior, second year AA QB instead of Jones. This was an unwise move for a team which may be in playoff contention. They should have kept the proven veteran.

    If Jones wasn't white he'd be on a team right now.

    Why don't the Bills sign Landry Jones?

    (we already know)

    It's incomprehensible that they wouldn't want to sign Jones. Why throw your potential franchise quarterback to the wolves when you don't have to.

    Football Dad's points are well taken. Keenum is currently the starter for the Denver Broncos. If the 2012 draft was done over Keenum might very well have been taken in the first round, second at the latest.

    Keenum had a great college career. If he was black he would have been hyped far more than he was.

    Brett Rypien went undrafted in the 2019 draft. He was signed as an UDFA by the Broncos who are said to have guaranteed him 154,000 dollars.

    I think Rypien was underrated and should have been drafted. He's a good bet to be a high end backup and spot starter. There's also an chance he might develop into a starter.

    To me that makes him worth a mid round pick. The NFL disagrees. We'll see who's right, me or the NFL.
