    Are adding to their case that they can play the position.

    Mahomes/Watson best two statistical QBs in the nfl now?

    Crazy stuff.

    Times certainly have changed.

    for the most part , its a bet against as a whole.... athleticism is there , but decision making has always been a big obstacle... Watson hasn't had enough experience to break the cycle or mold yet.. Do the black QBs with white mothers count ?

    They are starting to take over the league. Crazy stuff. Another reason to stop watching. Your narratives gone.

    I cap games very well since you've brought it up.. good enough to place in Supercontest this past year .. broke enough to have 2 entries every year also.

    its a big factor in betting futures.. black QB's just don't win SB's for the most part.. a couple of isolated cases when other factors align well

    You might want to place him on the list of Black QB's, but you can't deny he's Mixed

    Color doesn't matter.

    Talent, leadership qualities, decision making, ability to understand the playbook, ability to move in the pocket, ability to see the field and check down, having a head clock, and a sixth sense to know where the rush is, ability to properly use the clock in all situations, and ability to get along with coaches and teammates matter.

    Not many guys of any color get to check all those boxes. Brady does.

    Russell Wilson is biracial. Mahomes is good but being on KC helps a lot. Alex Smith had the best quarterback rating in the NFL in 2017. Most starting QBs in the NFL would be on top of the ratings if they were on KC.

    Russel Wilson may be a qtr White at most... Both his parents look black to me.

    I’m only bringing it up because it seems like the black quarterback has taken the league by storm.... oh and because it goes against most people’s narratives here that black people cant be successful at QB

    I would say it will be surprising if Mahomes(even though you can't be elite after one year) isn't ane elite QB eventually and Wilson is.... but the others two are just good. There are bad QBs......good....great and elite. So, don't go too far with this obsession of yours. Few Qbs can ever really be elite. Watson and Newton haven't even made great yet. That is epsecially true for Watson

    Newton is a good QB to a point.. When a championship and the pressure is on the line , everyone saw how he played and eventually fell apart. Carried the pouting into the pressroom afterwards too.. Was an easy game to cap with that bit of knowledge tucked away

    I would cap Houston in a championship game with that same liability

    simplify it for you , its a composure thing with these guys

    You can't call a guy with 1 great year elite...even if you expect that to continue Elite is for guys who put up lots of monster years. The top 3-5 of a generation.....preferably with championships
