Byron Leftwich Dispels a Myth
Aaron Schatz has a piece in TNR explaining how
Byron Leftwich is dispelling a racial myth by playing mediocre football. HeÃ¢€™s the first African-American quarterback to follow in the footsteps of Tom Brady and Trent Dilfer as a Ã¢€œgame managerÃ¢€ Ã¢€“ well-regarded for intelligence and leadership instead of flashy plays and dazzling stats.
Some good commentary by his visitors at Football Outsiders as well.
