    about Donovan McNabb were not only racially offensive, they were ignorant from a football perspective. McNabb ended up having a pretty good career--37,000 yards, 6 Pro Bowls, a bunch of records--which just goes to show Rush was wrong, is wrong, and judging from past performance, will continue to be wrong.

    •  Eagles were 0-2 and everyone was tripping. (13+ / 0-)

      Mike Greenberg had often said that he is in the business of overreacting to the news of the day, and that's that was going on.

      Everyone else at the table understood that the calls to bench McNabb were just that, a ridiculous overreaction to a couple of off games. But then Limbaugh just had to go there and claim that McNabb wasn't really any good at all and the press just wanted to finally see a black man succeed at the QB position.

      Apparently he had forgotten about Doug Williams and Warren Moon. Fucking loser, man. Just a complete failure of a man, but he's making millions off of his inferiority complex. Only in America.

      You can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America.

      The attitude that black men can't play quarterback had been around for a long time, but by the time Limbaugh got himself in trouble, that had long since ceased to be taken seriously even by the racists.

      Sure, there are people who thought that black men SHOULDN'T play quarterback, because they preferred having a white quarterback as the public face of the team, but that had nothing to with winning football games.

      In Limbaugh World, all NFL teams would refuse to have black quarterbacks, and thus no team would be at a disadvantage. But once teams picked the best player for the position, regardless of race, Limbaugh World fell apart. People like Limbaugh were OK with having black players on the team, so long as the team was led by a white quarterback.
