Black Quarterbacks

As much as I’ve enjoyed seeing Michael Vick’s electric talents blossom in Philadelphia and seeing him reclaim the life he almost threw away, I can’t shake this awful sense of foreboding as Donovan McNabb prepares for his first trip to Philly as a Redskin.

Miami quarterback Jacory Harris said Sunday that he received a racially motivated hate message on Twitter following the Hurricanes’ loss to Ohio State last weekend.

Reggie Garrett, the senior quarterback for West Orange-Stark High School in Orange, Texas, collapsed on the sideline during a game Friday night and later died at a local hospital, according to reports.

Kevin Kolb and Stewart Bradley remain stalled in their recovery from concussions, meaning it is more and more likely that Michael Vick and Omar Gaither will start at quarterback and middle linebacker, respectively, when the Eagles visit Detroit Sunday.
