    or that's where they focus their abilities.

    I grew up next to Ford Heights. Look it up. It is the poorest community in the US.

    The schools did not lack books, they lacked discipline. HUGE difference.

    This is not about economics, it is about institutionalized racism that you and people like you support.

    we disagree, but can we be finished with this particular conversation?

    Until affirmative action and racist institutions cease to exist in government, no.

    I read that and I was like "Rob Johnson? WTF?"

    I knew you meant Brad, though, but I had to mention that the statistical comparisons actually favor McNabb.

    If we think about what Limbaugh said, I believe he wanted to make it seem like he knew more about football than he really did, but to do it in a controversial way.

    If anything, McNabb has totally proven Limbaugh wrong. McNabb's stats this year are almost gaudy now that he apparently has 3 legit weapons to throw to (Brent Celek, DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin.) He's going to eclipse 30,000 total yards within two weeks barring injury, which is no small feat. He's currently 33rd all-time in passing yards.

    Re: Should the NFL do more to recruit non-Blacks as players?

    Here's what I don't get about the whole "its economics" thing.

    If its economics, why isn't affirmative action things for schools based on income levels or locals rather than race?

    If its economics, why would a middle class black person fit into the situation due to affirmative action but a lower class white person wouldn't?

    As far as the obvious baiting thread question at the start. Absolutely not. People should be in the NFL based on their merit.

    They should however be paid by Daniel Snyder based on their name value.

    I hate you Dan Snyder (Obligitory dan snyder hate in a football thread)

    my point was it should be economic based. it's about opportunity.
