    My underrated/overrated thread turned into a Cutler vs. Young argument
    For the record, I have no idea how Young's going to turn out. He could be a huge bust or a huge star, or somewhere in between. That's what makes the draft so exciting.

    Give me a break.

    Also if you bothered to read... your reaction to Young may have nothing to do with his skin color... but if you think it doesn't play into his overall reaction, you are living in a sheltered world.
    No, you are living in a monolithic one.

    Yeah. My bad. Racism is dead. No such thing anymore. EVERYBODY is completely colorblind and discrimination free.

    Wow, someone had to go and turn this into a discrimination thread.......

    Why is it that you absolutely cannot have a discussion on legitimate positives and negatives of an african american person without someone turning the whole situation into a racial argument.
    Dosen't matter what the topic is, someone inevitably will turn it into that.

    Did anyone accuse the NFL as being racist against Asians because not one team in the NFL drated Timmy Chang? After all, he was the all time leading passer in NCAA history.

    The fact that this came up......... It's pretty damn pathetic.

    there will always be tons of racism. it's been around for hundreds and thousands of years. and it's natural to be "fearful" of something/someone different. just how human nature is.

    there's a big difference between actually treating someone differently or unfairly or unjustly because of their race and just assuming a black QB is a run-first player (most are, coincidently).

    I think the pathetic part is that they may have a point. They can bring it up and have a good discussion about it.

    For instance if Jay Culter was black there would be people on this board who would call him a running quarterback.

    Also if Vince Young were white, he would be compared to Steve Young and not Randle Cunningham.

    I do believe just like Steve Young, Vince Young will be great if he could get his mechanics down.
