Skip Bayless might be the worst type of person out there. He tries to make arguments out of nothing and his latest attempt might be his least logical argument. When it came down to debating the merits of Kirk Cousins and Robert Griffin III, Bayless turned to race to help him. I think.
“Some foolish Redskins fans; they’re gonna sit back and say, ‘God, RGIII was struggling. He fumbled, he threw a couple of bad passes. Maybe Kirk Cousins is better right now. Maybe we should go with Kirk.’ NO! I don’t want to see that. I don’t want to set up that dynamic.
“I’m going to throw it out there. You also have the black/white dynamic and the majority of Redskins fans are white and it’s just human nature if you’re white to root for the white guy; it just happens in sports. Just like the black community will root for the black quarterback.
“I’m for the black guy. I’m just saying I don’t like the dynamic for RGIII. It could stunt his growth in the NFL.”
That could be the worst thing that Bayless has ever said. The Washington Redskins and their fans will want the best man for the job to start. It does not matter what race he is. I would cheer for whoever was leading my team and I wouldn’t care if he was white, black or lime green. Race has nothing to do with this debate.
RG3 will end up being a good pro. Same with Cousins. Let the two decide the better man on the field. If it comes down to cheering for a guy because of his race, the battle is already lost. Don’t let Skip Bayless win.
