    All QB's are scrutinized regardless of race

    [size=13pt]All quarterbacks are scrutinized regardless of race[/size]

    In the shortest sports column in the history of newspapers, I will require only two words to refute Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb's argument on HBO that black quarterbacks receive more scrutiny than white quarterbacks.

    I agree that arll QBs are scrutinized but nobody can make a judgement unless they are in his shoes. We have no clue what he has been though, heard, or seen.

    it is true, also waaaay yo easy I would have made better decisions so on and so forth.
    I am constantly reminded when a team wins its usually a QB who get all the credit, and when the lose the get all the crap. A double-edged sword.

    Sure, then how can McNabb say what other white QBs have been through, heard, or seen?

    Not picking a fight but wonder what Manning (the one with the ring) would say to all this?

    I didn't read any of the discussion on this board, but did anyone mention that last year the Vikings wanted Brad Johnson (white) to sit on the bench and be replaced by not Bollinger (white) but Jackson (black)?
