40 time for a WR, now I'm not suggesting that someone could succeed at WR with a 5 second 40, but I don't see the huge deal between a guy running a 4.4 and 4.6. 10 and 20 times would be a far better measure, acceleration is very important.
A ton of statistics are extremely overrated. Most of what you guys said is valid, except I don't understand sacks being overrated. Sacks are HUGE momentum shifts and always put the other team in a bad situation. Another overrated thing: 1000 yard rushing seasons, its just not a landmark number in my eyes anymore. 1500 is something to be proud of.
In sports studies this is called "stacking". It's whenever minorities are made to do things that are to be expected of them. Since most African American players aren't brought up to play the QB position, white players tend to be more effective. Is this fair? No. But does it happen? Certainly.
I don't think that black players should be treated any differently, but I know that Warren Moon, Randall Cunningham, Steve McNair and Donovan McNabb are the only great black QB's I know. And I'm not sure you could call Cunningham, McNair and McNabb great.
If I were starting a team, I'd go for the white QB. History tends to favour them. In this draft I'd go for Quinn over Russell.
That's cause you're a ******* idiot, a well-established fact.
