McNabb Credits Sports Media for Eagles' Playoff Berth - Scappleface


"Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb today attributed his team's playoff berth to sports media people who were 'very desirous that a black quarterback do well,' as radio host Rush Limbaugh remarked earlier this season.

'If it hadn't been for all the hype about me in the sports press, we'd never be 10-3 now,' said Mr. McNabb. 'Rush Limbaugh was right that there are people in the sports media who are eager for a black quarterback to succeed. But I don't think Rush realized that in the NFL, it's the sportswriters and TV personalities who win games for you.'"

I'm fairly certain the omnipotent sports media is behind Rush's downfall as well.
