What did he say exactly? On that note, Kordell Stewart seems to be jealous of Tebow mania from the few clips I've seen. I don't get why? The guy was given 5 seasons to prove himself and he had a below average career. Stewart, from what I read, had a rough time getting a starting gig as a QB, but the dude was given 5 starting seasons to prove himself. No way would Tebow be given 5 years on the broncos if he put up Kordell's production.
There are other white running QB's i.eSteve Young and Rich Gannon that had a rough start to their careers because they weren't thought of as QB's.
Granted I do think there is a racial aspect to black playing QB but I don't understand how it pertains to Tebow. Tebow is having a similar season to Micheal Vick's 2nd year in the league. Vick in his 2nd season threw for 16 tds 8 ints 2900 yards and 55% throwing and 777 yards rushing. Tebow in 8 starts has 10 tds, 2 ints 49% throwing 1200 yards passing and 450+ yards rushing. I don't remember if there was a controversey of Vick starting the third year, can't say the same about Tebow...
