Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Well, I wasn't going to comment on the Rush Limbaugh controversy, but I think I will. I hope those of you being so hypercritical listened to what he said, and read the item before assuming that Rush was criticizing black quarterbacks. He wasn't. Read the quote that has everyone's blood boiling:

"I don't think he's been that good from the get-go. I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. There is a little hope invested in McNabb and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn't deserve. The defense carried this team."

Limbaugh sought to do two things here: to criticize the media for canonizing players based on a criteria other than their ability (read: race, in this case), and to properly give the credit for the Eagles' past success to the defensive unit, who carried the team in the past. Rush' statement clearly was not an indictment of black quarterbacks, but an indictment of the media.
