Brian Leonard: Who Knew?

Coming off their most successful football season, a few Rutgers football players are on the NFL draft radar. Including FB Brian Leonard.

Leonard was moved to fullback last season, after starting at running back for a few years.

Apparently, Leonard has been working very hard to drop weight and increase his speed. His hope: to be the first white running back drafted in the first round since Penn St.'s John Capelletti in 1974.

Has it been that long?

Think about it:

It has been 20 years since a white running back had 1000 yard season.
It has been 44 years since a white running back led the league in rushing.

Of the backs to have gained over 10,000 yards in their careers, only John Riggins is white.

Most people, us included, didn't realize these staggering numbers. And of course, when white folks look at these numbers, the first thought is: why is there no public outcry?

Fair question.

There has been much talk and complaint in the past over the dearth of Negro QB's. The fight was to overcome the stereotype of the Negro not possessing the intellectual capacity to be the on field general. The fight was for opportunity.

All that seems to have been laid to rest by the success of Negro QB's recently in the NFL and by the ever increasing number of young Negroes taking snaps in the college ranks.

Isn't the scarce number of white RB's a similar issue to the previous lack of Negro QB's? A specific position on the field that is pretty much represented by one race.

Sure, to the untrained and unthoughtful eye.

The rest of us understand, that for a long period of time, there were no Negro QB's. And for a long period of time there weren't many Negro running backs. The position was virtually all white.

Gradually, as time went on, the Negro proved to be a more qualified fit for the demands of the position of running back; vision, quickness, speed, durability, stength, power, explosiveness. All traditional athletic attributes common to the Negro. And lacking in most white athletes.

Similarly, as time has gone on, the Negro is gradually assuming control of the QB position. Quick decision making, running ability, superior arm strength and unmatched determination have become the requisites to excel. Again, the position has gradually shifted to being tailor made for the Negro.

So, clearly, this isn't a case of the white athlete being deprived the chance to excel at running back. Which is in direct contrast to the Negro at QB.

This is clearly a case of the white athlete being protected for a long period of time by not allowing the competition from Negroes. And gradually, the Negro took over the running back position.

And we are seeing the same thing at QB.

Clearly, the extinction of the white running back is a sign of evolution in the NFL. Natural selection.

The absence of Negro QB's in the NFL was completely unnatural, and completely manufactured.

In comparing the two, it becomes clear. If you are someone who appreciates the positive evolution of the game and understands that weakness selects itself out of the league; well, then you should anxiously be awaiting the extinction of the white QB.

It is inevitable.

Praise God! The White Devils are in retreat and our brothers are on the rise. This is proof that the Negro race is the superior race when it come to the sports that matter (hockey and NASCAR you do not count). Basketball we dominate, baseball we will have the number 1 and 2 home run hitters of all-time, and now football we have eradicated the white running back problem and soon the quarterback position. Young Negros giving orders to other young Negros, with a member of the generic race holding a clipboard. What a glorious day that shall be.

"NASCAR you do not count"

Sir, did you read about Tony Stewart's recent comments on NASCAR...comparing it to the WWE in terms of the outcomes being determined?

Seems that one of the preeminent drivers doesn't consider it sport.

Therefore, we shouldn't either.

It's sports entertainment, so we won't worry about it.

See our early post on hockey. It will explain why Negroes won't bother taking over.

"How many black QBs have started for a Super Bowl winner? "

Sir, ask that question in 10 years. The segregation of the the QB position protected the white QB for a long time.

Evolution is a flowing process. Not instant.

It took a few decades to make the white running back irrelevent.

The process has just started for the white QB.

Hold on to the past. The game is passing you by, my friend.

So counting the days until the quarterback whom is white wins the MVP for under the Steve Nash Doctrine is something I should look forward too?

I respectfully disagree. I am counting the days until two things occur.

1) Phil Ivey wins the World Series of Poker.
2) Brady Quinn becaomes culturally irrelevant.

I just don't have room for Tim Tebow's MVP Celebration in 2014.

"So counting the days until the quarterback whom is white wins the MVP for under the Steve Nash Doctrine is something I should look forward too"

Sir, NO.

It is not something you should look forward to...if, after the Negro QB becomes the dominant QB; a white QB wins an award of importance...It will signify a lower level of play in the league.

No one wants that.

No one.

We asked everyone.

And no one wants that.

Ma'am, as stated in the post, the Diesel is probably the last white RB of real relevence. Some might bring up Merril Hodge or Alstott...or a few others. But none were of consequence.

Who do you think we will talk about, eventually, as being the last white QB of consequence?

sorry for not completing my reading before posting:

"Some might bring up Merril Hodge or Alstott...or a few others. But none were of consequence."

Alstott WAS of consequence. for the Bucs. and the "Air Alstott" visual is one of the few sports plays i have imprinted in my "experiment" impaired memory. plus, him and Warrick Dunn? couldn't go against that.

i would have mentioned him in my "Sandy baby" post. but, in chagrin, i have to admit that i thought Alstott was a FB not a RB

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"Alstott WAS of consequence."

Ma'am, the next generation of football fans will not even recognize the name.

He was a nice change of pace for the bucs for a season or two. But essentially was a short yardage back.

A guard.

The prototypical white runner.

Ma'am, at the very least...if the world of the white QB ended today, the answer would be Peyton.

I discount Tom Brady. He is the product of a system, not talent, and has been carried by under appreciated Negro receivers who have been robbed of any credit for far too long.

Steve Young was far too fruity to be of consequence.

"then you should anxiously be awaiting the extinction of the white QB.

why anxiously? like you like to see blacks overtake whites?

its not inevitable. while yes blacks are generally dominant at speed positions like cornerback or receiver, whites dominate the smarter positions. check wonderlic scores for each position in football.

youll find that from top to bottom, highest scores to lowest, they are the whitest positions to the blackest.

"White Devils are in retreat and our brothers are on the rise. This is proof that the Negro race is the superior race when it come to the sports that matter"

dude. white people have invented most of the worlds greatest inventions, run the biggest most profitable companies, dominate politics, we conquered ancient nations and subjugated your race among many others. please dont think blacks are superior. were all equal, were all people. if we all keep banging eachother were gonna be the same race someday anyway. yes you dominate sports in general. we dominate all positions in this world requiring intelligence. yet i still dont take the stand that whites are better or smarter. but if you wanna list facts then there you go right back at you.

"Reparations for slavery have found a way to work themselves out, it appears."

reparations are stupid. you werent a slave. i wasnt a slaver owner. no need for reperations.

oh im sorry your great great granddady was a slave? sorry, but every ethnic group of this world was a slave or subjugated at one time during history. sorry were not going back in time to pay everyone back for what there 10000x great grandaddy did.

theres no segregation anymore.

your dumbass quarterbacks like vick did themselves in. and marcus vick. almost every single criminal act/insubordinate act is the result of a black man in the sports world.

please realize the only thing holding your people back is your stupid idea of what is awesome in this world: selling drugs, fucking hoes, getting in fights, dropping out of school, getting arrested, and generally being niggerish. you guys use the word, and the people that do fit my previous description usually. its a shame... holding your people back...

i am not racist. i see us as all equal.

but i see you ignorant racist pricks on here as disgusting. and i only bring up the bad of your race to show you that your not perfect and that its not our faults. i do know not everyone fits a stereotype for any race, and i dont claim any bad views of blacks in general. i just wanted to voice our side, and make you all look like swine.

Sir, your grammar skills, spelling and provocative writing certainly put 'us' in our place.

There is no better way to make a people feel inferior than flaunting the shortcomings in the white man's education system and calling him stupid.

"dude. white people have invented most of the worlds greatest inventions, run the biggest most profitable companies, dominate politics, we conquered ancient nations and subjugated your race among many others."

And, now...the favor is being returned. A Negro Emperor shall rule the USA, and brown people from the Southern Hemisphere are over running the country.

You are being slowly conquored and don't even realize it. :)

"its people like you guys that makes me remember to never vote democratic"

Sir, come now...convicted felons can't vote.

First of all, whites comprise 70% of baseball, with virtually every top tier player being Caucasian, while blacks are currently comprising a portion considered to be an all time low (7%). Only a small portion of these black players start-- including just 3 starting black pitchers out of the top 150, 0 closers, 1 second baseman, 3 1st, 0 third, 1 shortstop, 0 catchers until 1 catcher in AA. So, while there are very few black baseball players, and even fewer star players, the amount of black ballplayers is even declining annually.

In the NFL, you're comments about blacks taking over the quarterback position are puzzling, considering there is just 1 black QB that is in the top 10 in passer rating (he's 10th), and he's not even in the top 10 for most of the other categories. There are also just 3 starting black QB's currently, and one is considered to be yet another "bust" of an African American Quarterback.

Furthermore, I'd just like to point out my observation that any white superiority that you seem to realize, you mark with “discrimination” and dismiss it, while you claim that any black success vs. white is a natural transition. According to every reputable study, white males are At LEAST 33% more intelligent. So at a position like quarterback, where intelligence and athleticism are required, whites naturally excel and have continued to excel, despite arduous efforts by both white and black to inject black quarterbacks into the NFL. So, it seems “natural” that whites dominate the most demanding position on the football field, right?

Currently, a college rusher from Stanford, Toby Gerhart is leading the NCAA in rushing touchdowns and yards. Gerhart is white. Like Brian Leonard, Gerhart is an exceptional athlete, capable of running sub 4.5 40 times, benching the most in his draft class and leaping higher than most in his draft class. Despite his athletic superiority to every other running back in his draft class, and clear superiority in skill, I'm sure Gerhart won't get a fair shake in the NFL. why? A white coach, quarterback, owner (etc...) lobbying for a white player over a black player is risky (take game theory and you'll understand) due to the discrimination card, which won't be played in a reverse situation. For instance, Terrell Owens openly complained about Tony Romo's supposed "favoritism" of star, white, tight end Jason Witten in 2008. Even though Owens' production has dwindled to barely-league-average, while Witten is conistently ranked as the most athletically gifted TE behind Dallas Clark (also white), Owens cried race, and Jeopardized Romo's public image and celebrity career.

Finally, I'd just like to end by making the point that, supposed athletically superior blacks, despite being bread for strength during the slave trade, make up a disproportionately low percentage of every major sport besides basketball and pro football. In baseball, soccer, tennis, hockey, golf, lacrosse, swimming, motor sports, extreme sports and skiing blacks don't comprise even 8% of the player populace. In fact, in every sport besides baseball (where they still comprise less than 8 percent and are at an all time low, blacks don't even comprise %1. In tennis for instance, there is just 1 (he’s just half black actually) male player in the top 100, ranked at 44th, and it's James Blake.

Lastly, whites dominate baseball to a much larger extent than the level that blacks dominate in NFL football, and clearly dominate the sporting world (and every other aspect of the world) to an incomparably large extent. So are blacks “naturally” inferior in all of these sports or is their failure due to “discrimination” and a world-wide conspiracy to waste the billions of dollars geared toward affirmative action-type policy?

So, true, blacks dominate in the few areas in sports where mindless brute strength and an ability to ignore regular brain trauma are included in the job requirements, while you are actually losing ground in areas that require brainpower, skill and athleticism in a single package...

Oh and to the person that made the comment about a black/brown takeover...

First of all, a small fraction of one percent of all millionaires, billionaires, CEO's/CFO's and senior board members at Fortune 500 ranked companies are black. Actually, you can count the number of black CEOs in Fortune ranked companies on half of one hand.

Blacks are the most terminally ill race in the world, and continue to comprise the least educated (next to American Indian congrats!) and least wealthy runs of US society, and every other first world society that they are apart of. Do note that predominately black societies are all considered third world by the World Bank despite often having massive endowments of natural resources.

For the brown take over comment, are you referring to Latin American immigrants in the US? Once again, this population makes up for the second poorest, second least educated, and second least-healthiest (all seconds to African Americans) levels of US Society. So the jobs that they would be "taking" would be more likely to be jobs that African Americans work, as the average white, non-hispanic American, now holds at least a bachelor's, three full degrees higher than that of an average African American (if you count Associate's). So, if anything this is a brown takeover of black society and a recoloration of the labor pool from white Caucasian and Asian management hires from...

And finally, yes, the US has a 3/4 black President (and a black first lady) whom I--with most other white American-- voted for. I honestly think Barack Obama is one of the best best presidents of the past twelve terms, and LUCKILY he shares ABSOLUTELY nothing in common with ignorant Black Nationalist Supporters. In fact, those that he seems to LEAST agree with are ignorant separtists like yourself. You might call him an "Uncle Tom," "buy-in," I call him a guy who knows how to make the right friends and the right enemies, and knows how to help build a better world.

Alright, who is an underappreciated negro receiver? Tom Brady had THE LEAST physically and athletically gifted receivers until 2007. All of the receivers that lined up with him in his superbowl wins had been career reserves or journeymen.

Now, his leading receiver is Wes Welker, who also leads the league in receptions, is second in yards, and is first in yards after catch. Despite leading in these categories, he's played in two less game than his competition.

Anyway, Tom Brady is one of the most talented QB's in history. Brett Favre, Peyton Manning, Joe Montana, Tom Brady, Dan Marino, Steve Young, Drew Brees, Johnny U. Those are all of the best QB's.

And, Mike Alstott lined up at tailback more than fullback, and true, he did use the "typical white rusher" approach of breaking tackles, unlike Leonard, Gerhart and McGuffie who uses jukes and the "Leonard Leap." If you're going to stereotype, then how about Vince Young as a "typical black quarterback," both who failed their football IQ tests, and had IQs equivalent to that of a menial job employee. Sorry, I couldn't find a better stereotype.

How about the head of the WWE publicly stating that the NBA was more fixed than wrestling? I guess you probably wouldn't have heard though about these issues, considering nobody watches the NBA-- the absolute epitome of everything wrong with professional sports.
