Subtle racism in sports media player descriptions has always been around, and it never gets any less irritating. Why are black players always “Dynamic” and “Athletic” but white players are “Intelligent” and “Scrappy”? Why can’t Cam Newton be Scrappy? Why can’t Aaron Rodgers be Athletic? And why do they always get compared to players of the same color?

Teddy Bridgewater is one of the top QB prospects in the draft, yet I’ve seen him get compared to Vick and Wilson and Cam, when he does not play like them. He’s a pocket passer. It happened with Geno too. Every black QB makes plays with his feet and can run! Don’t you get it? I mean, so can Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger and Tony Romo, but when they do it it’s not athletic but scrappy.

It’s just kind of depressing.
