09:47 AM ET 04.03 | Warren Moon isn't the only person who thinks race may be a factor in the way the NFL world is perceiving Cam Newton. A high ranking NFL executive, who is white, came to the same conclusion before Moon made his comments. "If Newton were white, he'd be the first pick in the draft," he said.

And I'd still call it a waste of a high pick.

I wounder if Warren still beats his wife?

Don't all this stuff be working opposite in the NFL?

I believe it. That dude who wrote the story is an ignorant fool and it didn't surprise me that he was white.

Cam Newton is black? Who are they kidding? Next they'll be telling us that Michael Jackson was black.

Yep... because none of these QB's are worth a #1.

Are you talking about all the white RBs in the league?

The qb position always comes under the most scrutiny. Every day last week on FN there was a thread picking apart aspects of all the prospects game.

The afternoon guys will have field day with the racist angle

So leading up to last year's draft, Tebow was torn apart by the press and that was perfectly okay because he was white....and he wasn't paid to attend school I might add. Newton is a very similar player to Tebow, but god forbid we point out his flaws like we did Tebow. I mean he's black so that must make us all racists for doing so...,

If Cam Newton was white, he'd be Tim Tebow with character issues.

Yep but because he's black, everyone's just racist for pointing out flaws. Gotta love that

April 3, 2011  10:59 AM ET

Soooooo Tebow should have been the first pick by this rational? Really?

Looking at yesterday afternoon's posts, it appears that the "afternoon guys" group consists mostly of people who start posting in the morning.

Racist!

j/k

yeah, just like JaMarcus Russell. The Raiders never would have picked him #1 if he was black. What? Never mind.

We need to draft one of em. It would definately be an upgrade over Garrard!
