I forgot you were in the 3th grade when Tommie was playing so you dont remember.
I remember Tommie Frazier. If he had Tebow’s personality and hype from his school and played in an era with mind-blowing multimedia coverage he would have gotten the pub Tebow has. He WOULD have been drafted and they would have given him a shot at QB and then probably moved him to RB like they should probably move Tebow except for the fact people were scared of Frazier due to the blood clot. Charlie Ward chose basketball pure and simple.
The NFL is about money. Making money off of players. Those owners don’t give a damn whether someone is white or black or yellow or red. Sure, stereotypes continue to exist, both white and black biased, but they are rapidly being broken down. They gave an undersized Pat White a chance at QB he ran an almost identical offense to UF’s. He’s black. Vince Young had/has a fucked up delivery, he’s black, he made the Pro Bowl at QB. He lost his job because of an abysmal performance in ’08 versus Jacksonville that I witnessed in person. He should have lost it. He won it back by playing better than Collins.
I am sick of Tebow too, but he is a good guy and a good role model for kids. He’s getting his opportunity because he is who he is and he wins. I bet Eric Berry thinks Tebow is an athlete.
