Rush really is a big fat idiot

Rush just resigned from ESPN as a football commentator because of comments about Donovan McNabb. In essence, he said McNabb is not as good a quarterback as his backup, Coy Detmer. He said that people support McNabb because he is black and that the NFL wants black players to succeed at skill positions. Three days after his comments he resigned with this apology.

"All this has become the tempest that it is because I must have been right about something," Limbaugh said. "If I wasn't right, there wouldn't be this cacophony of outrage that has sprung up in the sports writer community."

In general, Detmer only plays when McNabb is hurt, or at the end of games when there is a blow out. McNabb is better than Detmer statistically in just about every way. Here are their main career stats.

McNabb Detmer

completion % 56.4 52

yards per pass 5.9 5.8

yards per run 6.9 1.8

TD passes vs. interceptions 71/41 10/9

QB rating (an integrated stat) 78 68
