Regular readers may recall my theory that while Rush Limbaugh was right about Donovan McNabb of the Philadelphia Eagles being overrated, he was wrong as to why. It’s not possible for McNabb to be overrated simply because he’s black, since Daunte Culpepper of the Vikings is STILL underrated despite his monster season last year.
Yes, the Eagles beat the Vikings in the playoffs, but consider what would have happened had the defenses been reversed.
I argued then that the real reason is that players, especially quarterbacks, from the NFC East are always overrated, because that’s the division that the New York and Washington media follow. As proof of this concept, I offer Don Banks’ Sports Illustrated column on team-by-team needs.
One guess as to which division pops up first….
