Black ballers are all the rage in the NFL this year

A Historic 9 Black Quarterbacks Started For NFL Teams This Week

This was a big week for the NFL as it kicked off of the beginning of the 2013 season. It was an even bigger weekend for the game’s premier position as 9 African-American quarterbacks stood under center for some of the best teams in the league.

Never before has the NFL had so many signal-callers of color set foot on the field to lead their teams to victory.

For years black’s were stigmatized with the notion that we were not smart enough to play the game’s most “intellectual position”, followed by the stigma that all we could do was run fast and not throw like traditional QB’s like Joe Montana or Dan Marino.

We can only imagine that Doug Williams, Warren Mood, and Randall Cunningham were all proud to see the progress that has been made on the professional level since their respective hey-days.

Flip it on over to see examples of black, professional, ballers that are electrifying the game this year.
