"I guarantee you one thing this week folks. Grossman will get 100 times the criticism as McNabb." -Al Michaels
Al, you just don't get it do you. McNabb was not complaining about the reaction to his horrible performance last week. That interview with HBO was done before that game even happened last week. McNabb was talking about a systemic problem (as perceived by him) of black QBs being forced to answer questions that he felt white quarterbacks didn't have to answer to.
Your flippant statement, Mr. Michaels, just further complicates the issue and essentially writes off the issues of race that McNabb was trying to address. Yes Grossman will face criticism, he always has and always will. He sucks. Your statement essentially means that you believe McNabb's criticism came from poor performance, but McNabb was talking about questions/criticism that even occur when he is succeeding. Grossman's criticism comes from the fact that he stinks.
I know you were just trying to make a smart comment tying in current issues in the week with the current game, but your statement (while probably not intentional) just writes off what McNabb was actually trying to say.
