Herman is at least semi rascist. now that i think about it... i hope the colts dont pick luck. i dont want to see them have 2 of the best qb's in history back to back any way. i wonder what coach harbaugh thinks about this.
Hummm, where do I begin? First, I don't think it was Herm Edwards that said it. I know for a fact that Tony Dungy said it because I was watching MNF when he said it. If Herm Edwards said it since then, well, OK. Second, I doubt very seriously that Jim Harbaugh has this on his mind. I could be wrong but I believe he just so happens to be in full-throughted playoff strategy mode. Third, what in the world is this doing in a 49er fan forum?!?
I fail to see how this is important to the 49ers, neither will make out of the top 10 of the draft. Finally, and most importantly, you want to be very careful with tagging people with being a racist. Other than the fact that Luck is white and RG3 is black you have no real reason whatsoever to deam the man a fu#*ing racist. The man made a professional
opinion based on his years of NFL coaching and NFL player evaluation. Now, would I pick RG3 over Luck?, not on your life. However, as a person who evaluates football talent I could certainly understand why he said it. I find it insulting and offensive, to say the least, that a man can be called a racist because he made a quite viable football opinion only because he and the player evaluated are black. But for site rules I'd be a lot more vulgar in the description of my disgust with such a lack of thought.
