Black Quarterbacks-10

A historic weekend for Soul Brother quarterbacks with 7-1 record but you will not hear ESPN, ABC, CBS, NBC Sports or even Fox Sports Net speak about it. They (Media) wanted to dissect every move of the Andrew Luck-Payton Manning matchup in Indianapolis, Indiana. Once again the America Sports Media conveniently ignores Black Sports History.

Like Doctor Fred Whitted from Winston Salem State University states many times “We have to tell our own story.”

6-1  Russell Wilson– Seattle Seahawks – Thursday Night Russell Wilson had 235 yards with three touchdowns and running back MarShawn Lynch 91 yards with one touchdown beat the Ariz. Cardinals 34-22. Simply the Seahawks are best balanced team in the National Football League. Wilson keeps making great decisions on the field to keep his team in a winning position.

5-2  Colin Kaepernick-San Fran. 49ers- The Mobile quarterback wave continues with 49ers, 31-17 victory over Tenn. Titians. San Francisco’s fourth win in a row and fourth game over 30 points. Kaepernick 13 for 21 with 199 yards and rushing for his first touchdown of the year. The Niner offense could be coming to life with their multiple ways to attack opponent defense

4-3  Geno Smith- New York Jets- Rookie– Jets win in overtime as Smith has his best game of the year with 17 for 33 passing attempts and one touchdown with only one mistake 2nd quarter interception. New York Beats New England 30-27 on a very late field goal to get back into the AFC East race.

2-3  E.J. Manuel– Buffalo Bills- Rookie- Did Not Play

1-1 Thad Lewis – Buffalo Bills- Evens his 2013 record as Bills defeat the Miami Dolphins 23-21. Throwing for over 200 yards and creating the winning drive in 4th quarter. Lewis needs to have a second chance with another team because this is E.J. Manuel’s team.

2-3 Michael Vick- Philadelphia Eagles- Did Not Play

2-4 Terrell Pryor-Oakland Raiders – BYE WEEK

3-3 Cam Newton- Carolina Panthers- Evens his record this year with 15 of 17 passing attempts and 207 yards with one touchdown and evens The Cats record with 30-15 victory over St Louis Rams. Panthers are back at 500, the first time since 2009. Newton has brought this team out of the dark ages with his play on the field.

2-4 Robert Griffin III-The Washington Football Club- Griffin seems to be getting his football legs back with a complete game with 18 for 29 with 89 yards rushing and almost three hundred yards passing with two touchdowns in 45-41 Washington victory. Griffin threw the football on a thread unlike last week when his throws fluttered at times.

0-3 Josh Freeman-Tampa Bay Bucs Waived week 4

0-1 Josh Freeman – Minnesota Vikings-   Started against the New York Football Giants Monday Night and he should not have been on the field. The Giants win very sloppy game 23-7. Freeman threw over 50 times and that’s not a balance offense.

Total 26-28

Black General Managers- 4
4-3 Detroit Lion Martin Mayhew– Cinn. Bengals defeat the Lions 27-24 with late field goal.

3-4 Baltimore Raven Ozzie Newsome- The Raven fans must be scratching their heads as the purple birds continue to struggle losing to the streaking Pitts. Steelers

2-5 Houston Texan Rick Smith- lose tough game to the only undefeated team in the league The K. C. Chiefs with Alex Smith 17-16.

2-4 Oakland Raider Reggie McKenzie-BYE WEEK

1-6 The New York Football Giant Jerry Reese– The Giants finally win a game, not one of your stellar performance on the field. The Geemen did not make a mistake. Now it’s on to Philadelphia and the Eagles

Totals   12 -22
