Don't call this the race card. It's the star card. I'll be very interested to see how the NFL responds to Donovan McNabb's season-opening injury in comparison to Tom Brady's a year ago.
The rulebook was basically re-written after Bernard Pollard hit Brady in the knee and ended Brady's 2008 season. Now you can't hit a quarterback below the knees, especially if you've been blocked to the ground.
Hmm. So McNabb scores a touchdown last Sunday and two Panthers linemen jump on him in the end zone for no reason, cracking one of McNabb's ribs.
Will we see a rules change?
Last year there was even a discussion about fining Pollard after his legal and ethical hit on Brady. The hit on McNabb was unethical and borderline illegal, but I don't hear any discussion about fining anyone.
Bullshit. It is about race. Tom Brady is white, Whitlock's boy, Donovan F. McNabb is black. There should have been a fifteen yard late hit penalty thrown by Jeff Triplette - yes, the same Jeff Triplette that was attacked by an angry Cleveland Browns player a decade ago. And Whitlock's a black guy.
