    It's OK folks.... I'm black.

    Just thought I would help anyone out who was afraid to ask the obvious
    Didn't draft Byron Leftwich, didn't draft Charlie Batch, didn't draft Jerrod Johnson.

    I guess we did draft Dennis Dixon, Omar Jacobs, and Antwaan Randle El, though.
    while you are technically correct you knew what I was getting at.

    Add Hines to the list.

    I know we pride ourselves on being progressive and all but it sure seems like we love to "pick up" black QB's.

    And Flippy, Kordell had the unfortunate luck of starting his career in Pittsburgh. If he went somewhere else he would probably be in Charlie Batch's shoes

    I really don't get why we only take black backups at QB. Makes no sense at all & seems way overboard to just be coincidence.

    Anthony Wright, Rod Rutherford, etc. etc. Damn we have had a lot black backup QB's now that I think about it. Heck, we even had Pete Gonzalez here to represent the Latinos for a season or so.

    They also signed Kade Weston (DE), Antonio Smith (CB) I think, and Jimmy Young (WR).

    Not sure about Antonio Smith, article doesnt specify. I'm guessing its the CB from Ohio St. jimmy Young is a 6'1" 210 lb WR out of TCU and Kade Weston is a DE out of Georgia.

    Kade Weston is a former 7th round draft pick of the New England Patriots*, better make sure Belichick didn't just send him over to the Steelers so he could spy on us...
