In the waning moments of the Redskins game, Fox announcer Cris Collinsworth repeated a line he said came from the Fox studio show on the Limbaugh/McNabb controversy. He said “we’re all trying to move forward. It’s too bad someone wants to take us back.” You can disagree that McNabb is overrated. You can disagree with the reality that the media root for black quarterbacks to succeed (just as they root for more black coaches). But it’s lame times ten to suggest Rush Limbaugh is for “taking us back” to all-white quarterbacks in the NFL. Since when do Fox sports announcers start sounding like Al Sharpton?
