White NFL QB’s More Likely To Get Opportunities To Succeed ?
That seems to be the case if you were to ask NY Daily News writer Chuck Modi ( Twitter @ChuckModi1) who joined The Jeff Fox Radio Show via 2 Live Stews Radio to discuss his recent column http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/white-hope-qb-awards-fitz-mccown-watershed-moment-article-1.3633542
In light of recent events involving the Buffalo Bills apparent willingness to move on from Tyrod Taylor, the question is does Chuck have a point ? Take a listen to the interview. You decide.
While opinions may vary, some may agree others may vehemently disagree . Meanwhile another NY Daily News writer Carron J Phillips ( Twitter @carronjphillips) shared similar thoughts http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/bills-quarterback-dilemma-clear-black-white-article-1.3645016
After reading both pieces and of course speaking directly with Chuck. I am inclined to agree with both men. Sure we are a long way from the days of James Harris, Doug Williams and Joe Gilliam but when it comes to being a black NFL quarterback, it seems like one must make the absolute best of any opportunities afforded or else.
