Kap,Cam,RGIII,Wilson and now EJ Manuel and Geno Smith. It seems to me that most of the new dynamic athletic and projected to be great qb's are African American. Now with teams going to a pistol or read option, does the need for a speedy and quick qb behind the center makes it more likely?Read more at http://www.49erswebzone.com/forum/nfl/174291-caucasian-going-way-counterparts-endangered-species/#tCQrr3SEDiqb7LLt.99
Eric Crouch was ahead of his time...he would've flourished in this league....ok just kidding dude was too fragile. But athletic as f**k.
I don't think its black QBs but more so, these Black Qb can actually pass the ball (not counting Geno) and in comparison to white QBs who can run, well Tebow is the first that comes to people's mind...but Ryan Tannehill from the Dolphins is just as fast as some of these guys. And Jake Locker and Chris Ponder are fast as well....teams can run the pistol if they want to, but it does not matter if these QBs can't pass the ball well.
I think some need to forget looking for the next quick and fast white QB, when some should pay attention to the backup QB in Denver that is 6'8 with a strong arm and out runs defenders.
